Some records that slipped through the cracks

I'm still planning to write about some of my favorite African reissues of 2008, but it's going to take a couple more days. I did want to quickly mention a handful of records that failed to make my list of favorite new releases mostly because I forgot about them when the time came to tally everything up. Every one of these five might well have made it onto that list.

Q-Tip, The Renaissance (Universal Motown)
Juana Molina, Un Dia (Domino)
Calle 13, No Hay Nadie Como Tú (Norte)
Common, Universal Mind Control (Geffen)
Taylor Ho Bynum, Asphalt Flowers Forking Paths (Hatology)

I promise I'll be done with this year-end-list shit after I talk about those reissues. Really.

Today's playlist:

Otis Redding, Live in London and Paris (Stax)
Le Trio Joubran, Majaz (Randana)
Miles Davis, The Musings of Miles (Prestige)
Solomon Burke, This Is It (Shout!)
Nine Horses, Snow Borne Sorrow (Samadhi Sound)
