What's a libertarian?

To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

New CD Album Releases, 4-6-2010: Bobby McFerrin, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Slash
There's some bigger names, but way the most likely sounding new thing that you might need to hear this week is Vocabularies from Bobby McFerrin. This is an artist who has never gotten the respect he deserves even for his hit, the now 20+ year old "Don't Worry, Be Happy." That was a beautiful and memorable song, and he has been consistently interesting and listenable.

Saul Hudson aka SlashThis new album is his first in some eight years, and obviously meticulously constructed. The record company verbiage suggests that he used 50+ singers recorded by ones and small groups to get some 1400 total vocal tracks. I don't know about all that, but it surely sounds like something I need to hear more of.

Sharon Jones has never been a big name, but she's a real honest to G-d soul singer, a rarity today. Plus, she made the best song of 2004. That should rate some interest.

Slash has an eponymous solo album this week. Dig the co-creator of "Welcome to the Jungle" and other GnR classics, but Saul doesn't have anything jumping out of the previews that sounds like a real song.
