Motorhead “Ace of Spades” Single (Bronze 1980) —I hope people had their alarm clocks set for this - there ain't no hitting the snooze button on Motorhead.
Ian Gomm “Come On”
from Summer Holiday (Line 1978) —What a great version of the Chuck Berry classic - thanks to James Weber down in New Orleans for reminding me of this guy & introducing me to this cut.
Chuck Berry “Little Queenie”
from The Anthology (Chess 1959) L —For some reason, this song just popped into my head the other day, and it inspired a nice long thread of discussion on Facebook.
from Homicide: The Best of 999 (Cleopatra 1998) —Well, that will teach me to trust what's in my Itunes, not realizing Cat put it there, not realizing it's the live version. It's still a great song, but . . .
from Drums and Wires (Virgin 1979) —This song can't do anything but make me smile and bounce off the walls.
Edwyn Collins “Come Tomorrow, Come Today”
from Losing Sleep (Heavenly 2010) N —There is a wonderful interview with Edwyn Collins at the Village Voice website - he's coming back from 2 strokes, & he says his singing is better than his talking.
Elvis Costello “Luxembourg”
from Trust (Rhino 1981) —That Pete Thomas could bust some drumming moves. Still can, but this one! Dang!
Todd Snider “Looking For a Job”
from Live the Storyteller (Aimless 2011) N —There are only a couple songs I can actually play on the radio out of this double live disc - Todd likes to drop in a couple words that threaten western civilization itself.
John Cale “Evidence”
from Sabotage / Live (IRS 1979) —This album was my introduction to John Cale, and I still think it deserves way more respect. And a cowbell on this track.
Jack Hardy “You Only Leave Your Heart Once”
from The Passing (Fifty Fifty 1997) —I really wasn't overly familiar with this guy, but he passed away the other day, and I realized he was quite good.
Loretta Lynn “You've Just Stepped In (From Stepping Out On Me)”
from Gold: Loretta Lynn (MCA NASHVILLE 2006) —Loretta says she can't bring herself to leave though she knows she should, but I bet she did eventually.
Marianne Faithfull “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”
from Strange Weather (Island 1987) —I just love this record - many of these covers, including this one, remain the definitive versions in my head.
Over the Rhine “The King Knows How”
from The Long Surrender (GSD 2011) N —I'm liking everything I've heard on this record - maybe I should actually acquire it for myself instead of just sampling cuts at the station.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
