A Quick Post While He's Away (for Thanksgiving)

>> Featured Artist: Ruth Brown

It was a long, wonderful run for Ms. Brown. We'll miss you, Ruth. Here's "(Mama) He Treats Your Daughter Mean."

>> Album Lookout: LOVE

The Beatles - Released: Nov. 21, 2006 Capitol

The Beatles, or more accurately George Martin and his son Giles, have completed the Cirque du Soleil remix of the Beatles' classics. And, to much avail, they didn't screw it up. This isn't Mamma Mia, after all. Indeed, it's tasteful, even subtle at times, and interesting. Its take on "Strawberry Fields Forever" is particularly noteworthy.

While the Toaster hasn't heard quite enough to give it a ringing endorsement, our collective interest sure is piqued.

>> Reverting to: 1962

Previously we posted "My Sweet Lord." We've been notified by the authorities that we are required by law to post the Chiffons' Laurie Records' release "He's So Fine."

Thank you.
