When he recorded "Five Year Town," a true-to-life if slightly tongue-in-cheek look at his trying times in Nashville, Tim Carroll hadn't yet faced one of his cruelest career turns. The song was on a 1998 album that was to be his major-label debut. The set was never released, though, until Carroll put it out himself this year with the sly title Not for Sale (available from milesofmusic.com). Judging by his unaffectedly wise and funny songs, set to raw-boned roots-rock, Carroll is not about to let the vicissitudes of the biz do him in. After all, this is a guy who has learned that "A Good Cry," brought on by nothing more than a good George Jones country weeper, is as therapeutic as any session with a shrink.

The first song on A Tribe Called Quest's just-released Beats, Rhymes and Life makes a brutally honest pronouncement on the state of hip-hop: "It seems there's a sanitation yard full of trash talkers. . . . Phony rappers, who do not write. Phony rappers, who do not excite. " It's a blunt dismissal of the current hip-hop trends, and coming from the famously clean Tribe, it's something of a shock: This New York-based crew may slice-and-dice with the best of them, but rarely utters such harsh condemnations.

When you think of places where reggae music has been nurtured, you probably ruminate about the tough town of Kingston, Jamaica, or maybe the island's resort communities of Montego Bay and Negril. Yet this weekend, a creative focus is on Wilmington, Del., where the "Bob Marley 50th Anniversary World Music Festival" will pay tribute to the world's most inspiring reggae man and his little-recognized area connections. High point of the celebration is a two-stage concert to be held Saturday afternoon and early evening on the parking lots of Blue Rocks Stadium on South Madison Street.
