Not much in new music this week. Best bets are some Nina Simone re-masters, such as Forever Young, Gifted & Black: Songs of Freedom and Spirit.

Also noteworthy, Sony is releasing a “best of” compilation by the artist formerly known as Terence Trent D’Arby, Do You Love Me Like You Say: The Very Best of Terrence Trent d’Arby. Sananda Matreiya’s former life leaves a heller best-of collection- though it absolutely won’t take the place of owning Terence Trent D’Arby’s Vibrator. This would be a good start for a neophyte, though, and has a couple of sweet sounding rarities for the TTD OG.

Come Get It: The Very Best of Aaron Carter is out this week. He’s got a right purty smile.

    The TTD and Nina Simone releases sound good.

    Why did TTD change his name?

  • http://www.morethings.com/log Al Barger

    I’ve never seen a logical explanation of the name change. Generally, it seems to have been some kind of identity crisis expressed as a religious awakening, or some such. His email list writings are fairly entertaining, but do tend to take on something of an oracular or prophetic tone.

    Brother’s a bit freaky, and also he wrote “Supermodel Sandwich” and “Holding On to You.” Highly underappreciated artist.

    I like “Wishing Well” and “She Kissed Me.”

    Pretty much all these “new releases” look kind of “old” to me. I’m confused.

  • http://www.morethings.com/log Al Barger

    Mostly this stuff is re-mastered or some kind of compilation re-release. Not a lot of actual new music right now.

    Jules and the Polar Bears!!???–good group, good album, good songwriter (Jules Shear). Of the frenetic, acquired taste variety, but still–I had given up hope that they would ever see the light of CD day…
