Time zone: central
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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”
from The Point! (RCA 1970) —I do remember watching this on an ABC Movie of the Week one Tuesday evening when I was 11.
