Time zone: central
Marion Brown “Porto Novo” (Arista/Freedom 1975) —The extraordinary avant-garde saxophonist passed away passed away a week and a half ago - this was one of his signature pieces.
Aimee Mann “Real Bad News”
from Lost In Space (Superego 2002) —I was reminded of this song while perusing the columns writtenby Scott Miller of Game Theory/Loud Family fame over at his website. Google loudfamily, you'll find it.
Crowded House “Even If”
from Intriguer CD Album (Fantasy 2010) N —One of my fave albums this year - it just sounds better and better every time I play it.
Temptations “Shakey Ground”
from Ultimate Collection (Motown 1997) —So I just noticed this classic was co-written by Eddie Hazel, presumably the Funkadelic guitarist. Anybody know anything about that?
The Pretty Things “She's a Lover”
from Parachute (snapper 1970) —This was the follow-up to their more generally acclaimed SF Sorrow, but it's pretty cool, too.
Elvis Costello “National Ransom” (Hear Music 2010) N —The album hits the stores on Tuesday - it's 16 songs, 64 minutes, a whole lot of styles, and pretty much all great.
Bryan Ferry “Song to the Siren”
from Olympia (Virgin 2010) N —A deliciously intoxicating cover of the Tim Buckley song.
Neil Young “Someone's Gonna Rescue You”
from Le Noise (Reprise 2010) N —Continuing the AARP corner this morning - so many really good releases from what you could call your "heritage artists."
Kermit Ruffins “Happy Talk” (Basin Street 2010) N —Word is he never leaves the Treme area, and he really just barbecues, smokes weed, and performs in that club just like on TV. But he does put out good records.
Billy Preston “Do What You Want”
from That's The Way God Planned It (Apple 1969) N —Two of the most exciting reissues in the whole Apple line that just came out are by Billy Preston. I could probably have written that sentence better.
Fantasy Four “Your Mirrors Must Be Mad”
from Getting Fantastic With (Pancake Productions 2010) N —This great but short-lived St. Louis band recorded a whole albums' worth of material in 2002, and it's just now seeing the light of day. This was always their concert highlight.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
