Time zone: central
Miles Davis “Milestones”
from Miles Davis in Europe (Columbia 1964) —Miles on trumpet, George Coleman on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Tony Williams on drums, music on fire.
Itals “Ina Disa Time”
from Early Recordings 1971-1979 (nighthawk 1984) —Lloyd Ricketts, harmony vocalist supreme of this Jamaican trio, passed away the other day. He wasn't actually on this record, but he sang it live many times - their first hit.
Tom Waits “Downtown Train”
from Rain Dogs (Island 1985) —Remember back in the 80s when everybody was covering this?
Bettye Swann “Tell It Like It Is”
from Bettye Swann (Astralwerks 2004) —Shh - don't let this get around, but there are days I like this version better than the Aaron Neville hit.
Imelda May “Tainted Love”
from Mayhem (Decca 2010) N —How do you take a song that's a classic in both soul & electro-pop and make it fresh? Would you believe rockabilly?
Magazine “The Light Pours Out of Me”
from Where The Power Is (Virgin 2000) N —While ideally all of Magazine's work should be readily availalble, in the real world, we should be thankful newcomers can at least feast on this strong collection.
Little Feat “Old Folks Boogie”
from Waiting For Columbus (Rhino 2002) —The cowbell is more prominent on the studio version, but I couldn't find my copy of that; it's here on the live version, just not as loud.
Amy Winehouse “Someone to Watch Over Me”
from Frank (Universal 2003) —She could sing jazz, r'n'b, pop, all of it together or separately. It's a terrible loss of further music we've suffered.
AC/DC “Show Business”
from '74 Jailbreak (Sony 1984) —These early recordings by AC/DC knock me out - I don't know how I've missed them since they were released 27 years ago.
Leon Russell “Alcatraz”
from Live in Japan (CAPITOL 2011) N —Actually, this cut is live in Houston, but that's because there are 9 songs recorded in Japan in 73, and 7 more in Houston in 71, which makes this set pretty enticing.
The Feelies “Nobody Knows”
from Here Before (Bar/None 2011) N —The Feelies are a band I love that I have the hardest time trying to describe - they sound like lightning bugs eluding the grasp of little hands.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
