The Band “Ain't No More Cane”
from The Basement Tapes (Columbia 1975) —A showcase for the wonderful vocals of the Band principal singers, not to mention just a beautiful feel in general.
Bob Mould “Black Sheets of Rain” (Virgin 1990) —I love the drums on this track - Anton Fier, right?
The Kingsmen “Louie Louie”
from Frat Rock (Rhino 1991) —I realized the other day that I just haven't heard this one in years.
Ohio Players “Beg, Borrow and Steal”
from Cameo-Parkway 1957-1967 (ABKCO 2005) —I really had no idea the Ohio Express name went back before the bubblegum era and into a tough three-chord psuedo-Louie Louie like this one.
Hank Williams “Hey Good Lookin'”
from 40 Greatest Hits (Mercury 1978) —I realized the other day that I haven't played Hank Williams in ages - so many classic songs to have skipped over.
Hayes Carll “Bye Bye Baby”
from KMAG YOYO (Lost Highway 2011) N —I've been thinking about writing a review of this one for too long - let's see if I can't get it done today.
Joan Armatrading “Something's Gotta Blow”
from LIVE At the Royal Albert Hall (Savoy Jazz 2011) N —The renaissance Joan Armatrading has achieved these past five years has been so heartening - she's back to being one of my fave artists again after nearly 2 decades in limbo.
Velvet Underground “Pale Blue Eyes”
from Velvet Underground (Polydor 1969) —Now I can't even remember what TV show it was, but the other night this song was playing in the background of some lover reconciliation scene, and I thought it was an enormously strange choice - and then they cut out the lines about being married.
Mavis Staples “Don't Knock”
from You Are Not Alone (Anti www.anti.com 2010) N —Just a delightful way to open up an album - congrats to Mavis, by the way, on finally winning a Grammy after some 55 years of making great records.
Randy Newman “Harps and Angels” (Nonesuch 2008) —He'll be at the Sheldon tonight - I'm not making it this time, but I saw him a couple years ago, and he's such a delightful performer.
from 100 Lovers (Epitaph 2011) N —These guys just get better and better at doing what nobody else is doing.
Lene Lovich “Lucky Number”
from Stateless (Rhino 1979) —One of my all time faves! It still makes my inner self jump up and down like mad after 32 years.
David Lowery “Raise 'Em Up On Honey”
from The Palace Guards (429 2011) N —I admit I kind of lost track of Lowery's work with Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven the last few years, but I'm digging this first solo record a lot.
The Coal Porters “No More Chains”
from Durango (Prima 2010) N —I kinda wish I'd gone to see them at Off Broadway last week - this is a very good record.
