favorite segues: i wasn't really in "the zone" until the third hour, so probably none. maybe, if pressed, i'd say linda perhacs -> damon and naomi. i seem to remember that one being a rather pretty transition. also it wasn't exactly a segue (more of a "blending"), but alan courtis' controlled feedback layered nicely with the brian harnetty piece.
notes: how i love my molam. i must somehow get my hands on thai country groove, volume 2. 23 skidoo's "kongo do" is even better than i remembered. i loved the raw, theatrical calypso piece from the panama 3! compilation on soundway; the label's highly detailed liner notes make it even more fun to listen to. finally, one can never go wrong with the watersons, especially their haunting version of "idumea."
