FMD 3/6/2020: Music For A Quarantine

Well I've got my daughter in the office for the second day in a row - yesterday daycare was closed because of illness and today she's with me because she had a high enough fever that she couldn't go to daycare (though it came down with meds pretty quickly).

And also there's some sort of health related issue in the news?

So: music for a quarantine. Or illness. I suppose that's generally a time when I don't play music. Should I? Would that help a person get better? Is this topic really any different than cabin fever music or desert island music? I dunno.

  3. Not for quarantine necessarily, but this is an interesting thing a friend shared

    The youtube info

    If you're ever in Mexico, be sure to go to the Monterrey, Nuveo Leon. There, on the corner of Gonzalitos and Vancouver, you'll find a Kentucky Fried Chicken take-home. One of over 1,200 throughout the world. And in Mexico, just like everywhere else, the chicken is finger lickin' good. [From the cover]

    There is no date on the record but I am guessing it is from 1966 based on the Colonel's described age of 76 (he was born in 1890). Tracks include: A Taste of Honey, Lonely Bull, Chili Verde, Spanish Flea, Our Day Will Come, Tijuana Taxi, Green Peppers, El Garbanzo, El Toro and Third Man Theme. All quality big brass sounds and upbeat tunes.

    This is a fun record that was rescued from a pile of old records at an estate sale. Hopefully others will enjoy it as much as we have and as the Colonel politely reminds us several times on the cover of the album - enjoy your picnic with Kentucky Fried Chicken.

  4. Or how about a video with high quality audio of the Foo Fighters' 4th ever show

    After 25 years we at are proud to present to you this long rumoured video!

    Foo Fighters performed at the Velvet Elvis Arts Lounge Theater on March 4th 1995, and soon after it was believed among fans that a video existed, but it had never surfaced. Until now. The original video had no audio due to a technical error so an also new secondary audio source has been dubbed over the video. Owing to time constraints making this 25th anniversary date the sync is not perfect, but it's pretty close.
