TO DO LIST

THE MEDINA

Prepare to get very, very lost inside the Medina, Marrakesh’s souk, where stalls sell everything from carpets to carcases (often next door to each other). If you’re pressed for time, lose yourself in the magic of Marrakesh with an expert guide, who’ll introduce you to ancient customs still going strong today, take you to the best shopping spots and artisanal boutiques, and regale you with stories of Arabian nights. Price: From Dhs120 for a three-hour tour. Your riad (traditional house or hotel) should be able to arrange this for you.

REVINYLIZATION

Blood, Sweat & Tears began as Al Kooper’s dream of a rock band with horns. By the time he realized the concept—on the band’s 1968 debut, Child Is Father to the Man—it had become much more: an engaging hybrid of New York soul, Greenwich Village folk, and innovative jazz arrangements. With producer John Simon at the helm, Child was a virtual definition of the possibilities inherent in the heady musical experimentation of the late 1960s. Kooper’s writing and arranging for that record (including the monumental “I’ll Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know,” later a hit for Donny Hathaway) is one of the high points of his storied career. The record was justifiably praised as the conceptual breakthrough it was, and work had already begun on a follow-up when the band decided it needed a lead singer with more polish. Kooper left the group along with a couple of other key members.
