Think a liberal judge in a criminal court might want to explore whether water boarding is too coercive. Defense lawyers will have a field day with the issue of water boarding. They will demand access to all of the intelligence gathering ef- forts used over the last sev- eral years. It will be a wind- fall for AI-Qaeda like no other. Not to mention liberal groups that want to start recruiting for CIA interroga- tors, Special Forces person- nel, and former Bush Depart- ment of Justice lawyers. If a liberal judge fmds water boarding and other intelligence efforts have tainted the case, the case may falter. By moving the case to fed- eral court, ff the case fails for some reason, the adminis- tration could once again beat the dead horse excuse that "it's Bush's fault" for tor- turing them and ruining the evidence against them. In addition, with terrorists in the United States now, a lib- eral judge might want to maintain jurisdiction over them. Any subsequent orders by the court would not be the president's "fault," even the ordered release of the terror- ists to foreign countries Be forewarned, we try ter- rorists in Criminal Courts at our peril. Information (in part) wall street journal & Fact reviewing the best i' LADY ANTEBELLUM E NEED YOU NOW (CD) Capitol Nashville Lady Antebellum releases their second album, Need You Now, on January 26, and it is eleven potential "winners" -- headed up by their In-st single and number one hit "Need You Now." The Grammy nomi- nated trio certainly made their mark on country music with the success of their de- but album having spawned several hits. Hillary, Dave and Charles had a hand in penning most of the songs, but still make all of them their own. Take your pick of favorites from, "Our Kind of Love," the sweet sound of "American Honey," the awak- ening of "Hello World," the feel-good "Perfect Day," and the sadistic "Love This Pain." The second half happens with the ballad "When You Got a Good Thing," the heavenly "Stars Tonight," lowering the decibels for the hindsight of "If I Knew Then," addressing the beauty of a woman via "Something 'Bout a Woman," and put the final touches on their masterpiece album with "Ready to Love Again." Super! CADDYSHACK -- SOUNDTRACK (CD) La-La Land It's dj& vu when you hear the soundtrack from the mo- tion picture Caddyshack. Out-of-print for many years, and never before available on CO, this enjoyable soundtrack features music by legendary composer Johnny Mandel, with a handful of pop classics from Kenny Loggins. Remi- nisce with Loggins' perfor- mances on the hit theme from the film, "I'm Alright," followed by "Lead the Way," "Make the Move," "Mr. Night," and Journey with a dynamic performance of Kenny's "Any Way You Want It." The 1980 film's track has been digitally remastered, and is a "Limited Edition," with only 3500 COs produced• The Beat contrib- uted "There She Goes," along with Hilly Michaels' raucous "Something on Your Mind," plus three Mandel composi- tions: "Divine Intervention," the silky smooth "Marina," and ends with the explosive "The Big Bang." Awesomel WHITNEY JAMES -- THE NATURE OF LOVE (CD) Stir Stick Vocalist Whitney James offers up a stunning nine- cut debut album with vocals that gently caresses your ears. With a polished blend of American popular music and the originals of jazz compos- ers, she makes a nice pack- age. Blessed with a rhythm section of pianist Joshua Wolff, bassist Matt Clohesy, and drummer Jon Wikan, she hits the jackpot with spe- cial guest trumpeter Ingrid Jensen. Opening with the romantic strains of "Ten- derly," she quickly ups the ante with the energetic "Whisper Not," back with the rangy "A Timeless Place," plus the Kern/Gershwin tune "Long Ago and Far Away," marking the midpoint with by bob morello r the rest "My Love Is You" featuring a moving solo by bassist Clohesy. James delivers a poignant performance of the "The Very Thought of You," plus a Latin-flavored cover of Irving Berlin's classic "How Deep Is the Ocean," while the tender "Be Anything" has pia- nist Wolff wrapping haunting melodies and harmonies around James' vocals, finish- ing up her debut with the timely "In April." A very ma- ture performance by James for her debut albumI MIKE LONGO TRIO STING LIKE A BEE (CD) CAP Productions With more than 50 years of performing as a jazz pianist, Mike Longo proves that he has gained valuable lessons during that time, as he deliv- ers a dozen outstanding jazz gems recorded "live" in studio• Along with jazz giants Bob Cranshaw on bass and Lewis Nash on drums, Longo showcases his experience and talent. It's easy to select several favorites from a menu of songs by Longo, Cole Porter, Wayne Shorter, Dizzy Gillespie and Herbie Hancock to name a few. Shorter's works include the fast-paced "Speak No Evil" and the haunting "Dance Cadaver- ous" Porter's easy-to-sell "Love for Sale" Hancock's complex tale of "Tell Me a Bedtime Story," and salutes Oscar Peterson with a med- ley of melodies from "West Side Story." Longo's originals have the pretty "Someone to Love," the high energy, tasty "Bird Seed," and the bluesy "Checked Bags," a tribute to the late vibraphonist Milt Jackson. Gillespie's influ- ence on Longo led to a solo piano version of Dizzy's "Kush" which is the finale of this wonderful jazz albuml YOUTH IN REVOLT SOUNDTRACK (CD) Lakeshore The movie soundtrack to the romantic comedy film Youth in Revolt is comprised of a dozen unique tracks that will definitely grab your attention. You're sure to find a genre, and maybe even an artist you can identify with, on a potpourri of songs going back as far as 1982 to present. Listen to cuts as, "When You Love Somebody" (Fruit Bars), "I Willn't Be a Prisoner" (Little Wings), the French language "Les Cac- tus" (Jacques Dutronc), the rap question "What's Up Fatlip" (Fatlip), and Beulah outlines "Popular Mechanics for Lovers." The songs pos- sess lyrics that truly demand your attention, and concern. Fleshpot continues the mood with "Light of Love" and "Hap- piness Trigger," trailed by the brief interlude "Keys" and "Nick and Sheeni Make Love" from John Swihart, and the combined efforts of Fun Boy Three & Bananarama result in "'Taint What You Do," followed by the Lorenz Hart/ Richard Rodgers tune "My Romance" done nicely by Jo .Stafford. A most intbresting collection of songs for this soundtrackl
