Sunday Scots #3 (Sunday Shuffle #462)

I wasn't sure what artist with which I would close out this July run of Sunday Shuffles, even as of Friday. Yesterday, however, I discovered that Teenage Fanclub's Songs From Northern Britain turned 20. I think 1997 was a great year for music (and have been thinking about a series of posts on that fact) and that album in particular is one of my favorites, which made a Fannies shuffle a no-brainer. I've had Here on CD for a while now, but my drive hasn't wanted to let me rip discs for a while; luckily, Amazon has the mp3 version on sale for $5.99, so I double-dipped. I do love it and have listened to it a ton, but this explains the non-existent iTunes playcounts for its songs. Surprisingly, my last Sunday Scots was 13 months ago, so I am ready to gorge on their music and I hope you are too...

Sunday Shuffle #413

Summer is here and I'm happy that it is. Jill finished school this week, but Grant and I have to go through Friday. I have the week off from my TTT course, so I'm going to catch up on some reading and TV. There was baseball I could watch yesterday and I can watch some again today, so you can bet I'll be doing that. Few things bring me joy more than baseball and a book in my lap for between innings.

Here's today's ten...

Sunday Shuffle #474/475

I'm ready to put this feature on hiatus for a while, but I didn't want to end on #474 for now, which means I'm bringing back the "double issue" for today. The previous one was on Dec. 18 of last year. Normally, I do 20 songs on these editions, but since it's going away for a while, let's bump it to 25 today. Why not?
