Lynyrd Marley 

I had two albums called Legend. Best-of albums, one by Bob Marley, the other by Lynyrd Skynyrd. My iPod conflated the two and now when I ask for 'Legend' I get both, thirty-three songs, alternating between the two. It actually goes together better than you would think. But then doesn't cornbread go with jerk chicken? Or, more to the point, ganja with meth?

You've got your Lynyrd Beethoven, a little heavy, sentimental and story driven, given to emotional outbursts, and your Amadeus Marley, lighter, clever and theme driven, complicated, but melodic.

I'll keep them the way they are.
