Another fab Jon S submission

(scott) forgive me, that Beastie Boys thing was a WHOLE LOTTA work, (see? I still put out on my own
sometimes) afer the delay, Jon S sends in a fab post of both True West and Hunters and Collectors, I know them both somewhat and have found them to be way cool.......and really, when has Jon S EVER steered us wrong in ANY situation?

Last night I was out walking the dog and a song started playing in my head. Couldn't pinpoint it for a minute and then I realized it was the band, True West. I hadn't thought about, let alone listened to them in ages. It took some scouring ofTHE INTERNET but I found Hollywood Holiday Revisited, a compilation of sorts. It includes the Hollywood Holiday album, itself a sort of comp, but mainly it has all of Drifters - one of my all-time favorites. I played that album at least a million times and I still remember the whole thing as its playing.

Also included here is the first album by Hunters & Collectors. They actually made it pretty big for awhile but the sound of the "hits" was very different from this primal album. This also took some searching to find. I found the tracks for the Australian version of the album as well and all are included here.
