Prince “17 Days” from The Hits / The B-Sides (Warner Brothers 1984) —Hits/B-Sides comp released 17 years ago last Tuesday (when I MEANT to play this, but went to the ER instead), making a lot of his most collectible stuff (like this one) available on CD for the first time.Buy it!
Lush “Baby Talk” from Gala (4AD 1990) —A listener pointed out that a lot of y'all could use a weekly "Grab Your Purse [or keys or whatever] and Get the Hell Out" song at about 7:50 a.m...I think she's right, so here's the first mega-urgent entry in this new feature.Buy it!
