The Soundtrack you hear in your head as you hand the toll collector your last dollar and drive tentatively into the lonely tunnel toward the arms of Morpheus. But like, who's playing that crazy organ? (Visit homepage.)

Sergei Prokofiev  Kes Ridicules   Options For the Love of Three Oranges      Vinyl   
Joe Simon  Pool of Bad Luck (Listen: )   Options Drowning in the Sea of Love  Spring  1972  Vinyl  Simon's Philly Sigma Sound session. Pretty good, too. 
Gustav Mahler  Trauermarsch (Listen: )   Options Symphony #5 in C# Minor  Apollo    CD  Austrian Radio Orchestra. Funereal. Part of Mahler's genius is that he can deliberately compose a parody while at the same time be completely serious. 
Bob Dylan  Tryin' to Get to Heaven (Listen: )   Options Time Out of Mind  Columbia    CD  I used t have the same Triumph motorcycle tee shirt Dylan wore on the cover of Highway 61. Wore it t rags. 
Patty Waters  Wild Is the Wind (Listen: )   Options College Tour  ESP  1966  CD  with Burton Greene 
Gustav Holst  Saturn (Old Age) (Listen: )   Options The Planets  Front Row    CD  Robert Ashkey cond. London Festival Orchestra Now here's Bob Rixon, the only WFMU DJ ever arrested, convicted & incarcerated for stalking another WFMU DJ 
  (Listen to your DJ: )

Kristina Olsen  Live Man in the Dead of Night (Listen: )   Options Love, Kristina  Philo  1993  CD   
  (Listen to your DJ: )
Henry Brant / Boston Musica Viva  Hommage for the Brothers Marx: Chico, Groucho, Harpo (1938) (Listen: )   Options Works from a Lifetime  Newport Classic  1994  CD  This is one of the best pieces of music I heard for the first time in 2002. CD also includes two "spatial" compositions, & two lighthearted suites. 
  (Listen to your DJ: )
Dmitri Shostakovich  Symphony #2, dedicated to the October Revolution (1927) (Listen: )   Options October Revolution  BBC Magazine  1996  CD  1996 performance by BBC Orchestra & Choris cond. by Mark Elder. Includes the humungous Prokofiev "Cantata for the 29th Anniversary of the October Revolution," which didn't please the Kultural Kommittee. Shostakovich was only twenty years old. This CD is one the best I heard this year. 
Ann-Margret & Johnny Green  Bye Bye Birdie Main Title & Overture (Listen: )   Options Bye Bye Birdie Soundtrack  RCA   1963  Vinyl  Did anyone embody the American Teenage Whore / Madonna of the Early Sixties better than Ann-Margret? In this movie, Ann-Margret's dad was played (hilariously) by Paul Lynde, in the same snide queen character that made him so funny (& dirty) on Hollywood Squares. 
Louis Armstrong  Got a Lot of Livin' to Do (from Bye Bye Birdie) (Listen: )   Options Hello Dolly  Kapp    Vinyl  Another precious throw-away by Pops. Play it again, Rix. 
Terje Rypdal  The Dain Curse   Options Waves  ECM  1978  Vinyl   
Esperanza Abad  Hymne an Lesbierinen   Options Voz  RNE (import)    CD  Composer: Agustin Gonzalez Acilu

This CD by Spanish composer/singer Abad made my 2002 Best of.
