Allen Toussaint- All of It

It's all gone now.

Although it's rewarding, being an Elvis Costello completist is an expensive proposition. He has yet another new release today, The River In Reverse, a collaboration with Allen Toussaint. The New Orleans arranger and songwriter has been everywhere and worked with everyone. For more information, start here. My favorite song on Connected, Toussaint's fine 1996 album, is this instrumental. It sounds like The Meters in formal wear.

DNA- I haven't put my money down yet, but I'm listening to it at this very moment via Napster. And yeah, it's solid.
