Taking suggestions

Looking to see if there's a preference for what I do next. I'm thinking one of the following:

  1. The Something Wild soundtrack. Excellent collection of 80s music -- the Sister Carol track is worth the price of admission. It was released as a CD in 1990, but appears to currently be out of print.

  2. An LP of Margaret Atwood reading her poetry. Years ago, when I was reading a bunch of Atwood novels, I came across this in a used record store. I don't think I've ever played it.

  3. A Civil Defense record from the early 60s. It came with a booklet about how to build a bomb shelter in your backyard. Unfortunately, that's been lost. When I had a college radio show, I'd play this with Beethoven's 9th underneath. Sometimes, with the civil defense siren blaring, it was spooky.

****As you may have noticed, I didn't follow up with any of these. The Malcolm McLaren just needed a couple of finishing touches, then I started ripping some old christmas albums as a parental christmas gift. I did get the civil defense record completed and that should be posted later this week. "Something Wild" might be a bit longer as I'm thinking about pulling some audio clips from the movie.

Any would be great.

I agree with your assessment of #1. I think I have the cassette somewhere. I'll have to see if I can find it.

Now you're making me think back to odd music I've owned. I worked in a small part of Disney Entertainment one summer in the early 90s. While there I somehow managed to end up with a CD of Gumby-related music, headlined by Dweezil and Moon Zappa. I'll have to look for that, too.

I vote for the Civil Defense record, with or without the Beethoven. Love obscure, off-the-wall LPs from the '70s or earlier. They yield stuff like this here.
