Townes Van Zandt is great as well. I discovered him after Robert and Alison covered one of his songs on Raising Sand. I've got a good 2 cd compilation I listen to a lot.

There was a great box set of Excello records I read about some time ago and I think it's since gone out of print which is disappointing as they housed so many fantastic musicians. Thanks for the link - definitely my kinda sound. I shall add to the ever growing list of things to buy!

As for Miles, Bitches Brew is an absolute must as well. If you like fusion jazz, it's really the pioneer album for it and spawned many a great careers from the artists he recorded with on the album.

A comp like that of Excello artist is the way to go I suppose, as the original singles and albums isn't easy to find.

I must admit that I am not a very big fan of fusion jazz, but my interest in music is greater then my taste and I could probably get Bitches Brew for the reason it was a pioneering record. :D

I'm familiar with John Trudell. Years ago, I think Dylan mentioned AKA Graffiti Man in one of those Rolling Stone year-end polls. Trusting Dylan's taste in music I tracked it down. I liked some of it well enough but I was never really able to get into the whole spoken word thing. Even so, when I saw his Johnny Damas and Me record in the cut out bin quite a while back I snatched it up. I don't think I've ever even listened to it though.

I got Johnny Damas-it's the only one of his I bought that I didn't like.

Bone Days is great & I love Madness & the Moremes very much too.
