ahhhh... and the Europeans come out to play.thumbsup
Here's one I really like:
A Lazarus Taxon - 4 disc set
This has a collection of rare recordings from various era's. A must own for Tortoise fans. I'm also a big fan of the Thrill Jockey record label, alot of members from Tortoise play on other folks records and McEntire produces/engineers quite a bit of their other artist's music. Alot of my earlier musical efforts drew pretty deeply from Ennio Morricone's sound tracks and experimental rock / electronica. I always loved mysterious or moody movie music, and was just thrilled when I discovered Tortoise.
