link wray, from my wish list

Good story in the Sunday Chronicle.
Link Wray died, only three weeks after I linked to a cover of his “Falling Rain” by Calexico.
A few items that I’ve found sufficiently interesting to put on my Amazon wish list:
Hey! It’s That Guy!: The Guide to Character Actors.
Tiny Cities, the new album of Modest Mouse covers by Sun Kil Moon (a.k.a. Mark Kozelek, a.k.a. Red House Painters).
Gary Benchley, Rock Star, the new novel by Paul Ford.
The Edge: David Axelrod at Capitol Records 1966-1970, a great comp of the great soul/jazz/funk producer. Produced by Egon.
Terry: Terry Fox and His Marathon of Hope, Douglas Coupland’s bio of the greatest Canadian (Tommy Douglas be damned).
Louis Riel : A Comic-Strip Biography, Chester Brown’s bio of the 11th greatest Canadian (or one of the worst, depending on how you define “treason“).
A Decent, Orderly Lynching: The Montana Vigilantes, by Frederick Allen.
