I Don't Know

 This month's Eclectic Music For Mind And Bodhi doesn't have the answers you're looking for. It contains no secrets of the universe, no wisdom of the ages, no hidden messages of divine or secular importance. It is not esoteric or obscure, nor dark nor oblique. It is transparent and entirely meaningless.

As well as the usual scattershot of new releases, I focus on 2 particular areas of interest: the most enduring word in the English language, and the wide use and origin of the sample 'I don't know what this world is coming to'.

The album of the month this time is 'The Winter Mission' by Brad Barr. Brad Barr is an American guitarist and singer-songwriter, best known for his work with The Slip, The Barr Brothers and Surprise Me Mr. Davis. 'The Winter Mission', his 2nd solo album after a gap of 14 years, is an record of scintillating beauty. Each track is individual, giving the impression that this collection of tunes has taken many years to compile. Listen to a couple more tracks at Bandcamp here.

Zoe Wanamaker reads Philip Larkin's pithy masterpiece 'This Be The Verse'.

Because I rewatched 'The Missionary' lately...poor quality, but the best I could find,

And because I still love and highly rate The Beatles...
This guy is a bit boring (well, he is a drummer), but he makes a good point, and it's great fun at the end,

That's the thing until next time. Pop by next year, Jan 1st ish, for more ear candy.
