|What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).|

|Fan Dance / Sam Phillips|
Like a lot of folks, I first heard Sam Phillips perform on Gilmore
Girls; she provides those little interstitial bits of music that
are as much a trademark of the show as the snappy dialogue and the
cultural references. And that might have been that, if not for that
same sampler CD that introduced me to the
Dolls. Track number one on the CD was
Night, from Ms. Phillips'
Boot and a Shoe. That got me wanting to listen to more of
her work, which led me to Fan Dance, her latest album.
And now I have a whole new appreciation for Sam Phillips, her songs and her voice. They say that sometimes less is more. But compared to the little bits we get on Gilmore Girls, I have to say that there are times when more can be more. And better. And more.
