Miles Davis “Jean-Pierre”
from We Want Miles CD Album (Columbia 1982) —After disappearing for several years, Miles came back strong in 82, especially on this cut.
Rick Ross “Tears of Joy”
from Teflon Don CD Album (Slip N Slide 2010) N —Cee-Lo guests on this Miami rapper's new record - hard groove here sounds nice after the Christian Scott, I think.
Jackson 5 “Mama's Pearl”
from Third Album CD Album (Motown 1970) —I'm suddenly transported to 7th grade recess, staying inside to watch the girls choreograph those early J5 singles.
Los Lobos “All My Bridges Burning”
from Tin Can Trust CD Album (Shout! Factory 2010) N —I do wish they'd turn off the compression in the studio, but other than that sonic complaint, I dig the new Los Lobos quite a bit. Coming to stores soon.
Peter Case “Somebody Told the Truth”
from Dig! CD Album (Yep Roc 2010) N —I got to meet Peter Case last week, even though I didn't get to see him perform. He told me that he's been shit on by birds but kept playing.
The Strikers “Kick Around”
from Test Patterns CD Comp (Hi-Test / BDR 2010) N L —CD reissue of classic St. Louis new wave comp from 1981 - party tomorrow at Tap Room for this & the Welders.
The Welders “P-E-R-V-E-R-T”
from The Welders CD Album (BDR 1979) N L —St. Louis band from 1979 finally releases the record they made back then.
Phillip Walker “Don't Be Afraid of the Dark”
from Blues CD Album (Hightone 1988) —The original version of the song Robert Cray did - Phillip Walker passed away a few days back - he was underrated and great.
Roy Wood “Rock Down Low”
from Boulders CD Album (Parlophone 1973) —A great track for cowbell lovers - and anybody who likes great rock'n'roll.
Bryan Ferry “A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall”
from These Foolish Things CD Album (Virgin 1973) —This classic just popped into my head the other day - what a great version of Dylan's song.
The Coral “She's Comin' Around”
from Butterfly House CD Album (Deltasonic 2010) N —Another gem of pop perfection from this band that can't buy attention in the U.S.
The Posies “Apology”
from Dear 23 CD Album (Geffen 1990) —Sometimes I forget how good these guys were back in the day - this song could've been reason enough for them to be in the reincarnated Big Star.
Pete Townshend “Slit Skirts”
from Gold CD Comp (Hip-O 1995) —Of all the songs with the line "Recriminations fester," this is easily my favorite.
Patty Griffin “If I Had My Way”
from Downtown Church CD Album (CMG 2010) N —Magnificent gospel number - Buddy Miller's rumbling guitar threatens to tear that building down.
Bill Kirchen “Bump Wood”
from Word To The Wise CD Album (Proper 2010) N —I like all the guest stars, but I kinda wish he had a whole album of this sort of thing in him.
Rockhouse Ramblers “What the People's Wants”
from Lies & Damn Lies CD Album (self Self 2010) N L —One of St. Louis's finest bands recorded this last CD a few years back, then broke up, and waited until now to release it.
