"Adjust The Treble, Get Rid Of The Trouble..."

International broadcaster: Lee "Scratch" Perry, back in the 70s
Slipped my mind... I neglected to point out some worthy vocalists on a few tracks today.  First, Lee Perry is ably assisted by Roots Manuva and LSK on the song "International Broadcaster." Posdnuos of De La Soul and Talib Kweli rap magnificently on the DJ Shadow tune called "Stay The Course." They even manage to drop Plato's name into their lyric, which pleases Plato-centric Snark-types. And finally, during the broadcast, I assumed that a guest vocalist did the singing on "Humpty Dumpty World," but it was actually Ry Cooder himself. That is all.
