I cued up this album tonight as I’m trying to come up with a few musical selections for some friends’ wedding, the weekend after next. Thievery Corporation, and Pink Martini are a couple of choices that my friends have made for the cocktail hour, lounge part of the evening. My suggestions for the early portion of the evening, and the ensuing collar loosening portion of the festivities will have a dash or two of Ting Tings, a splash of Harry Belafontaie or Engelbert Humperdinck, the party ain’t complete until Cool James shows up, and James Brown, and then we’ll listen contently to Al Green.

There seems to be that unwritten rule that the third track of albums is the best track or focal point. I think that fits with this Thievery Corporation album.

By the way, the DJ for the wedding is a “green” DJ. Now, that’s very Seattle, isn’t it?
