Camerado “Bears and Dogs”
from Camerado (Undertow 2014) —Another terrific song from the mind of Mark Ray.


Marshall Crenshaw “Somebody Crying”
from Mary Jean & 9 Others (Wounded Bird 1987) —A master of melody.


Rosanne Cash “I'm Only Sleeping”
from Retrospective (Columbia 1995) —I only recently discovered this gorgeous cover hidden on one of Rosanne's greatest hits collections.


Continental Drifters “Listen, Listen”
from Drifted: In the Beginning & Beyond (Omnivore 2015) N  —Vicki Peterson, one of the greatest Sandy Denny interpreters.


John Prine “Dear Abby”
from Great Days: The John Prine Anthology MP3/file Comp (Rhino 1993) —How could I resist playing this to follow up that?


The Hearts “Dear Abby”
from Early Girls Volume 1 (Ace 1995) —Strange, strange record, this one.


The Rivingtons “The Bird's the Word”
from Land of 1000 Dances Volume 2 (Ace 2002) —Before there were the Trashmen, there were the Rivingtons.


The B-52's “Hero Worship”
from The B-52's CD Album (Warner Brothers 1979) —That first album was so unprecedented - it took me a few months to find my way in, but once I got it, I never looked back.


The Claudettes “You'd Have To Be Out of Your Mind (To Play These Blues)”
from No Hotel (Yellow Dog Records 2015) N  —Powerhouse propulsive piano band that fits somewhere in the slots between blues, jazz, and rock.


Charles Mingus “Self Portrait in Three Colors”
from Mingus Ah Um (Columbia 1959) —The first jazz album I ever owned - and still one of the best I've ever heard.


Helen Merrill “Summertime”
from The Complete Helen Merrill on Mercury (Mercury 1985) —There are thousands of versions of this song - this has to be one of the top 20 or so.


Patty Griffin “Noble Ground”
from Servant of Love (PGM 2015) N  —Stunning.


Martin Simpson “The Father's Song”
from Joy of Living: A Tribute to Ewan MacColl (Compass www.compassrecords.com 2015) N  —I haven't heard from this great English folksinger/guitarist in a while - yet another reason to be glad for this tribute to the father of that scene.


Destroyer “The River”
from Poison Season (Merge 2015) N  —She despises the direction the city's been going in. Intriguing opening line, and then that orchestration comes in!

from The Educated Guess (self 2015) N L —There is no other band in St. Louis that even attempts to pull off what these guys do, either.

The Jam “Down In the Tube Station at Midnight”
from All Mod Cons (Polydor 1978) —A chilling and powerful tale.


Elvis Costello “Lipstick Vogue”
from This Year's Model (Rhino 1978) —I highly recommend Costello's new memoir Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink, which comes out next week. If you're a fan, you'll be enthralled.


Chicago “25 or 6 to 4”
from Chicago II (Rhino 1970) —If they get voted in to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I propose it's with the caveat that nothing after 1972 really happened with them.


Shemekia Copeland “Jesus Just Left Chicago”
from Outskirts of Love (Alligator 2015) N  —Big, fat, monstrous guitar/bass/drums sound behind her powerhouse singing.


Esther Phillips “Confessin' the Blues”

Aretha Franklin “Oh Me Oh My”

Paul Revere & The Raiders “Let Me”
from The Legend of Paul Revere & The Raiders (Columbia 1990) —How many great records do you have to make to be be recognized as one of the major forces in rock history?


The JudyBats “Lullaby - Weren't We Wild”
from Down In the Shacks Where the Satellite Dishes Grow (sire 1992) —These guys made something like five albums filled with intriguing little pop songs, then disappeared off the face of the earth.


Craig Finn “Newmyer's Roof”
from Faith in the Future (Partisan 2015) N  —He's continued to refine his ability to deliver the stories he tells without quite singing them.


Hot Chocolate “Are You Getting Enough Happiness?”
from Their Greatest Hits (EMI 1993) —That's the kind of question songs don't ask much any more.


Lou Reed & John Cale “Style It Takes”
from Songs For Drella (Warner Brothers 1990) —This elegiac album for Andy Warhol holds up way better than you'd think.


Slapp Happy “Working At the Ministry”
from Ca Va (V2 1998) —One of the most underrated albums of a decade that forced me to dig deep sometimes to find things to please me.


Tommy Keene “Go Back Home”
from Laugh in the Dark (Second Motion 2015) N  —For more than 30 years, he's kept churning out solid records.


Bryan Ferry “Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever”
from These Foolish Things CD Album (Island 1973) —I'm blanking - Four Tops did this, right?


Aaron Neville “With You In Mind”
from Warm Your Heart CD Album (A&M 1991) —I'd forgotten this gorgeous Allen Toussaint song from Aaron's first solo album of the back half of his career.


Etta James “Don't Cry Baby”

Sonny Landreth “Simcoe Street”
from Bound By the Blues (Provogue 2015) N  —One of the world's greatest guitar players (and probably the best on slide) cuts loose with a blistering instrumental.
