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).RSS feed

An Other Cup / Yusuf
An Other Cup After so many years when Yusuf Islam, who here calls himself just by his first name, seemed to embrace his Moslem faith at the expense of his earlier identity as Cat Stevens, it seems strange to have the two identities come together. Because it takes only a few seconds to discover that Yusuf is still Cat: the voice, the intonation, the style of his songs. Can the presence of a cover song on this album be anything but a plea for understanding that there is no dichotomy here? With the automatic association in too many people's minds of Islam and terrorism, with a CNN anchor daring to ask America's first Muslim Congressman to prove he isn't working with our enemies, it would be a miracle if he weren't misunderstood. If you're inclined to pray for miracles, add that one to the list.
