Time zone: central
Ike Turner “Cubano Jump (Hey Miss Tina)”
from Rocks the Blues (P-Vine 1963) —Man, it must have been something to catch Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm back in their day.
Ben E. King “What Now My Love”
from Anthology (Rhino 1993) —A version of this song that manages to be both restrained and majestic at the same time - neat trick if you can do it.
The Bryan Ferry Orchestra “Avalon”
from The Jazz Age (BMG 2013) —This record is truly crazy - 1920's styled jazz arrangements of Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music songs. But "Avalon" actually works better than you'd think this way.
Dave Edmunds “Almost Saturday Night”
from The Anthology (1966-1990) (Rhino 1993) —This was how I learned this song - it's one of the greatest things John Fogerty ever wrote, and you know that's saying a lot.
Richard Thompson “Straight and Narrow”
from Electric (New West 2013) N —She walks the straight and narrow / She does what the good book says / She walks the straight and narrow / She's got eyes in the back of her head.
The Kinks “Acute Schizophrenia Paranoia Blues”
from Muswell Hillbillies (RCA 1971) —This one would be a surprise if anybody does it, but I love this song.
The Kinks “State of Confusion” (Arista 1983) —I always loved this big over the top rock song.
Jellyfish “New Mistake”
from Spilt Milk (Charisma 1993) —Well, I messed up the perfect segue out of the last song, just imagine the drums from the Small Faces merged into the drums from Jellyfish.
Peter Wolf “Homework”
from Sleepless (Epic 2002) —Nice rework of Wolf's J. Geils band rework of Otis Rush's "Homework."
Del Shannon “Drop Down and Get Me” (Varese Vintage 1981) —Backed by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, this great singer deserved more attention for this comeback attempt.
Tom Waits “Diamonds and Gold”
from Rain Dogs (Island 1985) —Subconcious connects the word "diamonds" from the last song to this one - subconcious helps me all the time.
