Lazy-i Best of 2007 Compilation
Well, I almost didn't
do a compilation CD this year. I figured "What's the point?"
Does anyone listen to CDs anymore? It's all about downloading and iPods
and Myspace. Anyone who's interested in this kind of music has access
to all of it from the Internet. But Teresa talked me into it. She reminded
me of the tradition. I've been making these comps in one form or another
since 1994. Why stop now? She was right of course (She's always right).
So here's this year's collection of the best stuff I had a chance to hear
throughout the year as part of my work with Lazy-i.com and The Reader.
On the cover (designed with the usual genius by Donovan Beery (eleven19.com))
is Sam and Evie enjoying a private conversation in the back yard.
