@DC's post about The Pet Shop Boys got me thinking about West End Girls and all the 12" singles that used to get played at our parties. Soft Cell's Tainted Love, Pete Shelley's Homosapien, The Tom Tom Club, The Thompson Twins, etc. That got me thinking about New Order's 12 inch Blue Monday and then Power, Corruption & Lies.

Looking at the cover, you'd think this is a jazz album. All these arrangements are without horns, and when you have contributors such as Christian McBride, Regina Carter, Sharon Jones, Steve Vai, and Iggy Pop among others you get an eclectic album. So to avoid making a real decision I place it here, in the Hard-To-Classify.

I’ve been on an “electro swing” kick lately, via Pandora when downstairs at the bar.

I swore off Ray LaMontagne after seeing him in a very disappointing concert last year.

This recording seems much better than the show we saw.

Kind of mellow, and has a bit of a 60's folk-rock vibe. The reviews mention it sounding like acoustic Zepplin and Van Morrison?

I find this record impossible to easily categorize.

"West End Girls" -- one of the most (in a good way) memorable numbers of the 1980s for me. I still dig it.
