Bruce Springsteen, a Monty Python musical, Lucinda Williams

Maria's Bed

Bruce Springsteen recorded his latest album without the E Street Band, returning to a sometimes spare, mostly acoustic sound reminiscent of his earliest work.

Change the Locks

This is Lucinda Williams' first-ever live album, recorded at the historic Fillmore theater in San Francisco. This song, "Change the Locks" originally appeared on her self-titled 1988 CD.


Tara Angell is a Texas singer/songwriter who convinced Joseph Arthur to produce her debut CD. Angell says "I consider some of the work on this record pure magic."

The Wind and Rain

Altan is a Northern Ireland band, here playing a slightly upbeat version of the classic murder ballad "The Wind and Rain."

Real World

Dublin natives Keith Roberts and Paul O'Toole formed The Young Dubliners after meeting at a pub in Los Angeles in the early '90s.

You Won't Succeed on Broadway

This new Broadway musical is "lovingly ripped off" the comedy group's film classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

Allegretto from Sonata in F Major, K. 533/494 (Mozart)

Pianist Richard Goode here performs a collection of sonatas and rarely heard short works by Mozart.

Ashes, The Rain & I

Jack Nitzsche was a producer and composer who arranged early Phil Spector hits like "Be My Baby" and "Then He Kissed Me." He later worked with the Rolling Stones and Neil Young. Nitzsche died in 1995. He's remembered on this collection of his most popular works.

Ocean Wave

Percussionist Jack De Johnette has played with a diverse group of jazz and rock artists, from Miles Davis and John Coltrane to Carlos Santana. Here De Johnette collaborates with Foday Musa Suso, who performs the Kora, a kind of African lute.
