we had a nice and very productive vacation (if not perhaps as relaxing as it might have been), split between spain & ireland.  spain was the productive part, but also, as always, a lot of fun.  so, in honor of spain, here are three shows, all featuring women named carmen, that i listened to over the vacation.

let’s kick this off with carmen lundy, from a quarter-century ago.  it’s an excellent recording (from fm) and a really good performance from this “young american singer” – not so young anymore, but now with a string of albums & still performing.  why not buy a digital download?  (actually, i’ve taken to buying the cd’s and ripping them myself… something about having the cd is nice.)

ran across this one in a folder “interesting covers”.  while i don’t remember adding it there, i really enjoyed listening again to the version of “love for sale” and indeed the whole show.  i only played with that “interesting cover” collection for a few months; but for that, this might otherwise have still been overlooked… perhaps i should pick that up again.  be that as it may, it’s a pity this is the only teddy edwards that i have.
