Time zone: central


Richard Thompson Band “Shoot Out the Lights”
from More Guitar (Beeswing 2003) —This album contains a complete 1988 concert from one of Richard's best bands - sure, I'd rather have Dave Mattacks, but Kenny Aronoff subbed pretty well.


Aimee Mann “Disappeared”
from Charmer Single (Superego 2012) N  —It was quite a pleasure to see her last week at the Pageant.


Wynonna “I Hear You Knockin'”
from Sing: Chapter 1 (Curb 2009) —Most people just don't have any idea how great this singer is.


Humble Pie “Stick Shift”
from As Safe As Yesterday is (Castle 1969) —Remember when Peter Frampton was cool?


Tim Lee 3 “Salty Tears”
from Raucous Americanus (Cool Dog Sound 2010) —I know the 3 are planning a new record next year. I betcha you'll hear it here.


Ha Ha Tonka “Death of a Decade” (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2011) —These guys are just smart and sharp.


The Vondrukes “Hung By Shame”
from EP (self 2011) L —Sometimes the Uncle Tupelo influence comes out big with these guys.


ZZ Top “My Mind Is Gone”
from Rhythmeen (RCA 1996) —I wonder very often why this album isn't universally acclaimed as one of the best things in the world?


ZZ Top “Big Shiny Nine”
from La Futura (American Recordings 2012) N  —And the new one is pretty darn great, too.


The Buzzcocks “You Say You Don't Love Me”
from Singles Going Steady (IRS 1979) —I don't want to live in a dream I want something real and I think I understand now the way that you feel.


David Byrne & St. Vincent “Lazarus”
from Love This Giant (4AD 2012) —It's the horns!


John Lennon “How?”
from Imagine (Apple 1971) —John knew how to ask the questions.


Bob Dylan “Roll On John”
from Tempest (Columbia 2012) N  —A moving tribute to Mr. Lennon.


Ann Peebles “I Can't Stand the Rain” (Hi Records 1974) —She left Kinloch, Missouri to make one of the best records ever, and a lot more really good ones besides


The Blues Broads “Blue Highway”
from The Blues Broads (Delta Groove 2012) N  —That's Dorothy Morrison, Tracy Nelson, Angela Strehli, and Annie Simpson. That's a lot of great singing.


The Prisonaires “Baby Please”
from Sun Record Company: 50 Golden Years 1952-2002 (Castle 2002) —A beautiful doo-wop number from guys in jail.


The Staple Singers “If It Ain't One Thing It's Another”
from City In the Sky (stax 1974) —The Staples tried valiantly to keep up with changing music trends - I think this could have made a nice movie theme back in the day.


Meshell Ndegeocello “Feeling Good”
from Pour une âme souveraine - A Dedication to Nina Simone (Naive 2014 2012) —One of the things that made Nina Simone so great was her ability to take anybody's song and completely reshape it to her own devices. Ndegeocello can do that, too, making this a rare tribute that matches the skills of the originator.


The Roches “Hammond Song”
from The Roches (Warner Brothers 1979) —Very few musicians have brought me more joy than the Roches have over the years.


Joni Mitchell “Love Puts On a New Face”
from Taming the Tiger (Reprise 1998) —An overlooked but pretty darn good record from Mitchell's later years.


Bobby Womack “Love Is Gonna Lift You Up”
from The Bravest Man In The Universe (XL 2012) N  —Womack wrestles with new-found vocal limitations - I'll tell you what, this is one catchy song.


Sugar Minott “Two Timer - Timer Dub”
from Reggae Legends (GREENSLEEVES 2010) —One of the sweetest reggae vocalists. And this has such a deep groove.


Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra “The Ratcatcher”
from Antibalas (Daptone 2012) N  —Now's the time on Sprockets Salvation when we dance.


Average White Band “Pick Up the Pieces”
from Rock Instrumental Classics Vol. 3 (Rhino 1995) —A perfect slab of funk.


Dr. Victor Olaiya “Pariboto Riboto”
from The Rough Guide to High Life (World Music Network 2012) N  —The early horn-driven high life songs like this one are a revelation to me.


Miles Davis “Doxy”
from bags' groove (Prestige 1957) —A catchy little Sonny Rollins tune with some wonderful solokng from Miles and Rollins.


Hank Crawford “Dat Dere”
from More Soul (Atlantic 1960) —An Oscar Brown, Jr. number delivered nicely by guys pulling out of Ray Charles' band for a sideline.


Heritage Blues Orchestra “Big-Legged Woman”
from And Still I Rise (Raisin Music 2012) —There were so many great records released this year. This was one of them.


Wanda Jackson “Down Past the Bottom”
from Unfinished Business (SUGAR HILL www.sugarhillrecords.com 2010) N  —Justin Townes Earle gives Wanda a much more comfortable backing than that silly ol' Jack White did.


Los Straitjackets “Popotitos (Bony Maronie)”
from Rock En Espanol Vol. 1 (Yep Roc www.yeproc.com 2007) —How can you resist a Spanish language version of Bony Maronie?


Radney Foster “Just Call Me Lonesome”
from Del Rio, Texas Revisited (Devil's River 2012) N  —A nice acoustic version of a song he did originally 20 years ago. That record didn't sell much, either.


Merle Haggard “Movin' On”
from 40 #1 Hits (CAPITOL 2004) —Truck driving music.


Hayes Carll “Kmag Yoyo”
from Live at KDHX Vol. 10 (KDHX 2012) N  —A nifty live exclusive from Mr. Carll.


Tom Waits “Make It Rain (live)”
from Glitter and Doom Live (Anti- 2009) —This live version hits hard!


The Beach Boys “The Private Life of Bill and Sue”
from That's Why God Made The Radio Single (CAPITOL 2012) N  —It's not exactly major Beach Boys, but it's a pretty little song.


Loudon Wainwright III “Your Mother and I (live)”
from Career Moves (Virgin 1992) —Brian Wilson may not care about people's private lives being made public, but what if it's in the form of a song this poignant?


Joan Osborne “Champagne and Wine”
from Bring It On Home (Saguaro Road 2012) N  —It ain't easy to cover Otis Redding and make it great. Osborne does it.


Buddy & Julie Miller “Keep Your Distance”
from Buddy & Julie Miller (Hightone 2001) —It ain't easy to cover Richard Thompson and make it great. The Millers accomplish that.


Hazel Dickens “Go Away With Me”
from By The Sweat Of My Brow (Rounder www.rounder.com 1983) —Gee, she made some purty records.
