Time zone: central
Van Morrison “Wavelength” (Mercury 1978) —That's one freaky synthesizer sound, but a heck of a nice song.
Sam Bush “The River's Gonna Run”
from Laps In Seven CD Album (SUGAR HILL 2006) —Sam Bush, aided and abetted by his one-time employer Emmylou Harris, does an amazing job on this Buddy Miller gem.
Bryan Ferry “Song to the Siren”
from Olympia (Virgin 2010) N —I've only heard a little of this so far, but it's all been amazing.
James Gang “The Bomber”
from Best of the James Gang (MCA 1973) —oops - I thought this was a cowbell track - my memory just went haywire. I brought this along because I watched the video posted by Bill Glahn on Facebook and was knocked out by it.
War “Southern Part of Texas”
from Very Best of War (Rhino 2003) —Thanks again this week to Said for reminding me of a classic cowbell song.
Talking Heads “The Great Curve”
from Remain in Light (Sire Records 1980) —I'm pretty sure I decided to play this one this week because I read about it on the wonderful blog by Scott Miller (of the Loud Family)
Gang Of Four “Natural's Not In It”
from Entertainment (EMC 1979) —I don't think I'd have placed a bet this song would end up in a TV commercial, but yeah, it wins the most ironic award.
Claudette King “We're Onto Something” (Blues Express 2010) N —My review of this is here: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Claudette-King-We-Are-Onto-Something-2010.htm0
McCoy Tyner “Passion Dance”
from The Real McCoy (Blue Note 1967) —One of the all-time greatest jazz cuts. With Joe Henderson on sax, Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and the incomparable McCoy Tyner on piano.
