Aaron Neville “Hercules”
from Treacherous: A History of the Neville Brothers 1955-1985 (Rhino 1986) —Aaron's second biggest hit, and deepest groove.
Faces “Miss Judy's Farm”
from A Nod Is As Good As A Wink...To A Blind Horse (Warner Brothers Records 1971) —Every time I listen to anything from this record, I remember how much I really wanted it when I was 13, and how somehow I never got the money to buy it, since there were always so many singles to buy instead.
Tom Verlaine “Days On the Mountain”
from Words From the Front (Collector's Choice 1982) —I recently returned to this album for the first time in a number of years - it's even more powerful than it seemed back in the day. All the songs are based on letters from American soldiers during World War I.
Loudon Wainwright III “Final Frontier”
from Strange Weirdos - Music from and Inspired By the Film "Knocked Up" (Concord 2007) —When I get the chance, I listen to my itunes on shuffle, and this album has been a recent favorite of the algorithm. That makes me want to share these songs with you.
