(2006 ´Broke & Hungry´) (40:09/12) Er fegt los wie Mississippi Fred McDowell oder James ´Son´ Thomas, hinter denen der Teufel her ist - und hält diese Spannung nahezu bis zum Schluss. Wer ist dieser Mann? Selbst Labelchef Jeff Konkel hat ihn nur ein Mal gesehen, in jener Nacht, als diese Aufnahmen entstanden. In den Linernotes (das Unglaublichste, was ich je über eine Studiosession gelesen habe!) schreibt er, man möge Odell Harris bitten, ihn anzurufen, sollte man ihn irgendwo treffen. Auszug aus dem Text: ´Was Odell betrifft - nun, er ist kein Mann der sich gerne was sagen läßt. Einfache Bitten wie ´Versuch, ins Mikrofon zu singen´ oder ´Hör auf, mitten im Song Mist über andere Leute zu erzählen´ wurden von irritiertem Grinsen erwidert.´ Tja. Manchmal ist es nicht leicht, ein Album zu produzieren. Diese Session dauerte von abends bis um halb acht am nächsten Morgen. Mit dieser CD beglückt man uns mit einigen der ungehobelsten Downhome-Sounds der letzten Jahre. Eine Entdeckung, spannend und erinnerungswürdig. Mein Tipp

An American journalist named Ben Harris, who works for Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), is traveling the world in search of stories about Jews in their various communities. This lively interview with Harris, the ´´Wandering Jew´´, about his travels and traveling, was done mostly by email, with two conversations via webcam on Skype. When this writer spoke to Harris off the record for background, he was in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency offices in New York City, but the reported interview via email comes mostly while he was abroad. Harris reports in his blog about getting the assignment: ´´Imagine this: Your boss calls you up one day. He tells you he wants to send you on a trip of many months, pretty much anywhere you want to go to write about ... well, pretty much anything you want to write about. You will be blogging, making videos, Twittering, and writing that old standby, the feature story. Starting now, he says, you are to spend your days scrounging up great stories of Jewish life and dreaming up interesting ways to report them around the world. Amazing, right? ´´That´s more or less the genesis of The Wandering Jew, a new JTA project that will take me across Europe and North America in the coming months, searching out stories that illuminate the many ways people express themselves Jewishly. Along the way, we´ll hopefully shed some light on some larger themes of Jewish life in these early years of the 21st century.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ralph Morocco.

Searching for the truth finally unlocks multiple secrets in this exciting continuation of the Red Starr series by USA Today best-selling author Kennedy Layne.... Searching for the truth... Kane ´´Gunny´´ Taylor has spent over a year searching for answers in his sister´s death. That time has culminated in the form of a land, air, and sea rescue operation conducted to save the lives of abducted schoolchildren in her honor. He thought he would find peace in this mission, but what he found was so much more. Unlocking secrets... Jade Amherst knows only too well the meaning of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She´s been held captive for over 17 months, and she´s counted every day, hour, and minute that passed. The rescue mission seemed surreal, the reason behind it so poignant, and the man who led the operation all too real - only she couldn´t move forward without putting her past behind her. Untold devotion... Gunny finally returns home after being gone for far too long, another successful mission behind him and a potential future with a beautiful woman who was so much more. He should have known better than to think things would be easy. Jade´s past comes back with a vengeance, and another hostage situation ensues. Will they be as fortunate a second time around? Red Starr HRT is a paramilitary hostage rescue team that was originally formed years ago by two retired marine master sergeants. Upon the death of Catori Starr´s husband, Brendan ´´Red´´ O´Neill, she took a much needed hiatus to deal with her guilt and all consuming grief. Two years later Starr is clawing her way back and ready to lead a fresh team of five cherry-picked former Force Recon marines. Red Starr HRT takes cases the FBI and other agencies won´t touch, from domestic assignments bordering on the gray edges to missions abroad against savage terrorist regimes. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of the 1. Language: English. Narrator: Raquel Harris. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/031548/bk_adbl_031548_sample.mp3.
