Mueller's Musings: A Look at February 2003 Releases 

Boy oh boy, January was sure a cold month up here in the northeast.  Hopefully February will be a bit warmer.  And there are numerous discs that will help keep you warm on those long winter days and nights.  February 4th sees releases from The Baptist Generals and Juliana Theory, as well as the European release of the new Woven hand disc.  On the 11th look for discs from Patty Larkin and Further Seems Forever.  Then on the 18th, a long awaited reunion disc from Robin Lane and the Charbusters, one of the top punk/new wave bands of the late 70s and early 80s, as well as great new discs from bands like Rye Coalition, Calexico, and the very cool Nicolai Dunger.  And on February 25th, a special George Harrison tribute album featuring performances by Dave Davies, Peter Green, Jay Bennett, and They Might Be Giants, among others.  Also out that day are discs from Edwin McCain, Wilco & The Minus Five, and David Wilcox.  Wow!  What a lot to choose from!
