    I'm assuming from your name and old avatar that you're a fan of the Traveling Wilburys, correct?

    If so, you may want to check out Jenny Lewis's cover of "Handle With Care", it's with Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie and Conor Oberst from Bright Eyes. I've actually never heard the original, but the cover's really good.

    Actually, if you're into old-school country, Lewis's whole album is pretty durn good. She's the primary vocalist in Rilo Kiley, if that means anything to you.

    She was also the red-haired girl in the Fred Savage movie The Wizard, if that means anything. The guitar player in Rilo Kiley is Pinskey from Salute Your Shorts!, too.

    i should be heading to the record store tomorrow i'll keep an eye out for these albums. they show the Rilo Kiley albums online but newbury comics is mismanaged to say the least. they never know what they have in the store.

    Both Rilo Kiley's 'Takeoffs and Landings' & 'More Adventurous' are pretty good. I like the former better, just because it was an indie album, and it had more variety than More Adventurous, which is good, but the band really found their niche in that one and stuck with it pretty much throughout.

    Y'know, if you want, I can probably get you a couple 'free samples' of some of these tracks. Just hit me up on PM if you're interested.

    thats ok. i don't have any media players set up on my comps. windows media sucks balls (and it sends info back to the microsoft mothership) and a lot of downloadable mp3 players suck too besides i don't use them any way. i'll pick up at least one of the discs maybe two if their there.i have no problem buying cds. i always take shots in the dark.

    Fair enuff, I just hate to recommend music to someone and then have them hate it.
