    Tracks of the Week: Colors

    Nick Drake "Pink Moon" - Everyone should have this song on their hard drive. So here it is. There's no excuse now. Like the rest of the country, I first heard this song on a VW Cabrio commercial a few years ago. Since then, Nick Drake's Pink Moon has quietly crept further and further up my list of all-time favorite albums. Do yourself a favor and pick up this masterpiece. It'll give you a respite from the usual nervous music. Buy It.

    Ken Nordine "Maroon" - Word jazz. Hip, daddio. Ya dig? A baritone-voiced narrator goes on and on about colors on this 1966 release. Nordine was commissioned by a paint company to create a few spots for black & white commercials. He got so jazzed, he didn't let up and 34 songs later you've got a hodge-podge of 90-second spoken word bits about all the colors of the rainbow and then some. What the heck is cerise? Buy It.
