Time zone: central


Allison Moorer “Back of My Mind”
from Down to Believing (E One Records 2015) N  —I can't play my fave song on this album because she cusses in it, but this is an awfully good one, too.


Tom Russell “When the Wolves No Longer Sing”
from The Rose of Roscrae: A Ballad of the West (Frontera 2015) N  —Gretchen Peters sings this beautiful Tom Russell song.


Elana James “Hobo's Lullaby”
from Black Beauty (Snarf Records 2015) N  —Hot Club of Cowtown fiddler branches out on her solo work to do some really gorgeous stuff.


Steve Earle & the Dukes “Baby's Just as Mean As Me”
from Terraplane (New West 2015) N  —And his daddy sounds great in this old fashioned light swing arrangement. I don't know who Eleanor Whitmore is, but she is a nice vocal foil here.


Justin Townes Earle “Least I Got the Blues”
from Absent Fathers (Vagrant www.vagrant.com 2015) —Justin sounds best in this minimal arrangement.


The Javalans “Come Dance With Me”
from That’ll Flat Git It Vol. 20 Rockabilly From The Vaults Of Event Records (Bear Family 2000) —I like the sound of this thick slab of rockabilly.


Louis Jordan “Louisville Lodge Meeting”
from Louis Jordan & His Tympany 5 1950-1951 (Melodie Jazz Classics 2002) —Louis Jordan and his fantastic slices of life.


Magic Sam “San-Ho-Zay”
from BLACK MAGIC (Delmark 1994) —San-Ho-Zay or San Jose? Either way, I dig this groove, and I dig this guitar.


Jimmy McCracklin “The Walk”
from The Walk Jimmy McCracklin At His Best (Razor & Tie 1997) —One of the best records released the year I was born. And 1958 was a good year.


Tinariwen “Genere Taqqim Tossam”
from Tassili (Anti- www.anti.com 2011) —This is the cut with the guy from TV On the Radio singing a little in English. But I like everything they've released so far.


Jefferson Airplane “Won't You Try / Saturday Afternoon”
from After Bathing At Baxter's (RCA 1967) —How freaky must this record have seemed when it was new? Because it still feels a little freaky to me after knowing it forever.


David Blue “So Easy She Goes By”
from Forever Changing: Golden Age of Elektra (Rhino 2006) —An obscure folk-rock cut from 1966. You can definitely hear the Dylan influence here.


Buffalo Killers “Graffiti Eggplant”
from Dig. Sow. Love. Grow. (Alive 2012) —Every once in a while I'm reminded of how enjoyable these guys are.


Richard Thompson “The Angels Took My Racehorse Away”
from Live at the BBC (Universal unk 2011) —In retrospect, there would have been a better Elvis Costello song to play before this one. Oh, this is live from 1986, with my fave RT band.


Elvis Costello “Green Shirt”
from Armed Forces (Rhino 1979) —She takes all the red, yellow, orange, and green and turns them into black and white.


The Bottle Rockets “I Wanna Come Home”
from Bottle Rockets and the Brooklyn Side (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2013) —Headlining the last night of Twangfest, June 13 at Off Broadway, with Eric Ambel & Jimbo Mathus also on the bill.


Kacey Musgraves “Blowin' Smoke”
from Same Trailer Different Park (Mercury www.virginemirecords.com 2013) —It's only two years old and this cut feels like a country classic already.


The Charflies “Witch of Sunoco”
from Linoleum Angel (self 2015) N L —This St. Louis band will be at Off Broadway with two other excellent acts, the Wilhems and Karate Bikini. Some of the best musicians in this town.


Madeleine Peyroux “Bye Bye Love”
from The Blue Room (Decca 2012) —Really cool cover of the Everly Brothers classic.


Rhiannon Giddens “Up Above My Head”
from Tomorrow Is My Turn (Nonesuch www.nonesuch.com 2015) N  —More of that gospel feel.


Etta James “Strange Things Happening”
from Hickory Dickory Dock (Ace 1998) —Taking Sister Rosetta Tharpe to a secular place.


Irma Thomas “Break-A-Way”
from Sweet Soul Queen of New Orleans (Razor & Tie 1996) —On the short list of my favorite singers in the world.


Mitty Collier “Miss Loneliness”
from Talking With Her Man: The Chess Singles 1961-1968 (Geffen 2008) —One of those incredible soul singers who only really broke through on a big level once or twice, but made a lot of great records.


Alabama Shakes “Gimme All Your Love”
from Sound & Color (ATO www.atorecords.com 2015) N  —When these guys hit it, they really hit it.

Fred Wesley & The JB's “Damn Right I Am Somebody (Parts 1 & 2)”
from Funky Good Time - The Anthology (Polydor 1995) —James Brown asks the question, and everybody answers with the title. "To me, happiness is Fred Wesley playing his horn."


Michael Jackson “Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough”
from OFF THE WALL (Epic 1979) —Louis Johnson, Bros Johnson bassist extraordinaire, passed away the other day - he played on this album, and presumably on this masterful song.


The Brothers Johnson “Stomp!”
from Light Up the Night (A&M 1980) —A hugely influential record in my development as a music listener - it made me realize there were many paths to musical pleasure.


Badly Drawn Boy “Summertime in Wintertime”
from One Plus One Is One (Astralwerks 2004) —Here's a record I'd completely forgotten about which is a lot better than I remembered. And it has a hot cowbell part.


Wire “Champs”
from Pink Flag CD Album (Harvest 1977) —And this is what they sounded like 38 years ago.


Wire “Burning Bridges”
from Wire (pinkflag 2015) N  —I haven't heard anything from Wire in many, many years, but this sounds pretty nice.


David Udell “Conversations”
from Orchids (self 2015) N L —This local release is chock full of musical invention and delights.


Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey “Here Without You”
from Mavericks (RNA 1991) —Stamey & his dB's partner Peter Holsapple did a wonderful version of this Byrds classic.


Chris Stamey “Invisible”
from Euphoria (Yep Roc 2015) N  —Stamey just keeps on writing great songs and making great records.


The Zombies “Shine On Sunshine”
from Breathe Out - Breathe In (Red House www.redhouserecords.com 2011) —Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone still make nice music together. It's my dream to see them live some day.

Sinead O'Connor “Back Where You Belong”
from How About I Be Me (And You Be You) (One Little Indian 2012) —I haven't heard all of O'Connor's records, but this one is the finest album of the ones I've heard.


Stackridge “Something About the Beatles”
from Sex and Flags (Angel Air 2005) —A song that pays tribute to knowing about the Beatles, with the opening line "Why did the apple fall to the ground?"


Harry Nilsson “Poli High”

Sara Watkins “You're the One I Love”

10Cc “You've Got a Cold”
from Deceptive Bends (Mercury www.virginemirecords.com 1977) —There just aren't enough songs about this subject with which we're all familiar.


The Skieletons “It's Okay to Be Lonely”
from Nothing to Lose (Hightone 1997) —Joe Terry didn't write enough songs - the ones he did were good ones.
