Rural Ledge-ucation #34: Product

A pessimist would look at the end-of-year barrage of box sets, reissues, live albums, and compilations as pure cash grabs by artists and their record companies. Yeah, it is, but as an obsessed music consumer I have another view. It's an opportunity to create more piles in my CD room, and also fill my external hard drive with even more tracks that I'll forget I own!
Today's short show primarily highlights some of these recent releases, along with a couple of albums that will quite possibly have a high ranking in my Best of 2011 list. Oh yeah, and there's a live Replacements track that I played for Drazzle (I can never say no to playing them, right?). You know the methods to get this show, or just directly download it HERE.
