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.
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.
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!
The Who “Pinball Wizard”
from Tommy (MCA 1969) —A song that's been so present in my life for so long that sometimes I've taken it for granted, but it's really pretty amazing.
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.
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.
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.
