Various Artists: La Paloma: One Song for All Worlds [Jul. 5th, 2001|05:22 pm]
collating bones
25 versions (actually 26) of the complicated little tune that everybody loves to play, apparently--there are four volumes so far devoted to versions of this one song (this is the first). It's played by Carla Bley, Jelly Roll Morton, Amon Duul II, Flaco Jimenez, etc.--but the catchiest is the one this starts with, a gussied-up surf version by the Strangers. The dub one's nifty, too.
