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.)

Vanilla Fudge  Shotgun (Listen: )   Options Near the Beginning 
Michael Douglas & Mark Stein
 
  CD  You'd have to take bad acid to think this one-joke band is scary. They were, in fact, four hard-working boys in The Rascals lineage. Their two greatest bludgeon&stomp covers, Shotgun & Some Velvet Morning, are adjacent tracks on the Fudge's fourth LP. 
Sisters of Mercy  (I don't exist) When You Don't See me (Listen: )   Options Vision Thing    1990  CD   
Kristen Barry  Don't Cry (Neil Young) (Listen: )   Options The Beginning.The Middle.The End    1996  CD   
 
Glazunov, Alexander  Concerto for Alto-Saxophone & String Orchestra in E Flat Major, Op. 109 (Listen: )   Options Saxophone and Orchestra 
Naxos
 
1990  CD  Sohre Rahbari, Alto; Alexander Rahbari, Conductor; BRT Philharmonic Orchestra, Brussels.

Glazunov (1865-1936) was a late-romantic Russian composer who, like Rachmaninov, fled to Paris rather than risk making it with The Stalin Era. Lucky for him.
 
Dick Hyman  That's a Plenty (Listen: )   Options Keyboard Kaleidoscope  Command    Vinyl  Dick hypes the "new" whizbang Lowrey Organ by multi-tracking himself on this jazz classic. Good covers of Goldfinger & Nice 'n' Easy on this Enoch Light production. 
Mahler, Gustav  "Feierlich und gesmessen, nicht schleppend" (Listen: )   Options 1st Symphony, New York Philharmonic conducted by Bruno Walter      CD  A funeral march on the theme of "3 blind mice." This warm mono recording from the Fifties is one of the truly classy items in the WFMU library. Kenny said he'd be "delighted" if I played Mahler.
