Lindsay, Arto – “Encyclopedia of Arto” – [Northern Spy]
This 2-CD set from Brazilian Arto Lindsay features selections from his previous recordings on CD 1, which is more polished, mellow, and singer-songerwriter-y. CD 2 contains live solo performances by Lindsay of several of the songs from CD 1 and a few others, including covers by artists like Prince (4). CD 2 is like the unplugged version, with two tracks containing “Wall of Guitar,” which is jarring and noisy, but all the songs are just Lindsay on vocals and guitar. These may grow on you.
