In addition to picking up Johnny Cash’s American IV: The Man Comes Around, I also got Riding With The King by B.B. King & Eric Clapton and You Are So Good to Me by Waterdeep. The Clapton album continues my long-standing love affair with Clapton’s music—some teenage boys have a Led Zepplin or AC/DC phase, but I had an Eric Clapton phase—and the Waterdeep selection is influenced by John Wilson, who has been trying to get me to listen to Waterdeep for a couple of years now. Soon I’ll relent and buy a bunch of Waterdeep like I did with Over the Rhine at Jeff Holland‘s behest.
All the while, my mother is saying, “You have no fiscal restraint when it comes to music.” She’s right. Thank goodness for BMG—which, by the way, Mom said I’d screw up royally. 😆
