I got an Ipod Shuffle for a Christmas present last year, but I never bothered to activate it until now. This is pretty neat. About the size of a pack of chewing gum, it’s one of the smaller Ipods, so it doesn’t hold as many songs as the standard-sized ones. Still, better not to look a gift horse in the mouth—or a gift Ipod in the headphones port or whatever applies here.
So far, what I’ve got uploaded:
Lowdown- Ground Zero. Great, funky indie hip-hop from my peeps C-Doc and Tirade.
Booker T & the MG’s- Stax Profiles. Beyond their standards, a set of sides personally chosen by Elvis Costello.
Four Brothers soundtrack- 1970’s Motown tunes selected for the John Singleton action film.
