Cheap Trick “I'll Be With You Tonight”
from Dream Police (Epic 1979) —I hadn't heard this album in years until Jim put it on at work the other day - I forgot what a great rocker this one is.
David Lowery “Deep Oblivion”
from The Palace Guards (429 2011) N —As if carrying on two bands hasn't been enough for him, Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker front-man comes up with a solo album - sounds pretty nice.
Neil Young “Someone's Gonna Rescue You”
from Le Noise (Reprise 2010) N —Daniel Lanois meets a perfect partner here - Neil Young won't stand for the music being subservient to production, and Lanois won't stand for production being subservient to music - tie goes to the listener.
The Roches “Love Radiates Aroudn”
from Another World (Warner Brothers 1985) —This song, written by some guy named Mark Johnson, remains on the short list of most beautiful experiences in the world.
Detroit “Rock & Roll”
from Detroit (Akarma 1971) —Not only a stone-cold cowbell classic, but probably the best version of this Velvet Underground masterpiece.
Raul Malo “Sinners & Saints” (Fantasy 2010) N —I sold a copy of this album to John McHenry the other day - wonder if it will turn up on Blursday?
John Fahey “Spanish Dance”
from The Best of John Fahey 1959-1977 (TAKOMA 1977) —Once upon a time, when the only options in my car were the mainstream radio (which stunk) or cassettes, I had a cassette of this album which I played over and over and over. Magnificent stuff.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
