I wonder at the future of the human race when I see Sergio Mendez and Herb Alpert on a top 100 list, but then the human race redeems itself when Ray Davies solo album (Other People's Lives) is listed (and in the top 20, even)!

And any list with Calexico and Howie Gelb is OK by me. We just don't get enough desert surf here in Chicago.

Thanks!
