MUSIC: A Sunday Sampler

Lots of 60s box sets added to iTunes/iPod this week -- Nuggets and Nuggets II, Phil Spector, Simon & Garfunkel, Doo Wop Box III -- taking the total to just over 900 songs.

Highlights of the week:

"Words Enough to Tell You," a mid-60s song from Sweden's The Mascots which sounds like an early Beatles song.

"Stay Awhile," by the Clovers. Doo-wop with a weird tinkling piano accent and a fabulous electric bass riff.
