Time zone: central
Cerrone “Love in C Minor”
from Disco Classics (Varese 2003) —Seriously, I am still amazed at how many people purport to hate disco. How can you hate something this full of life?
Tim Easton “Porcupine” (New West 2009) —Easton isn't the most consistent guy out there, but boy, when he hits a groove, he comes up with great stuff.
Billy Bragg “Swallow My Pride”
from Tooth & Nail (Cooking Vinyl 2013) N —I still haven't warmed up to this whole album, but this is a really pretty song that reminds me of Nick Lowe's recent work, albeit without as great a singer.
James Cotton “Cotton Mouth Man” (Alligator 2013) N —Cotton teams up with Joe Bonamassa for a scorcher here.
Kate & Anna McGarrigle “Excursion a Venise”
from The French Record (Hannibal 1982) —One of my all-time favorite records has only the occasional word I can understand. Wish I would have had this one when I was actually studying French.
Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians “Goodnight I Say”
from Fegmania! (Yep Roc 1984) —This was actually the first album with the Egyptians as his backing band. I'd forgotten that, probably because I didn't hear this one until after he'd done another one or two.
Johnny Marr “New Town Velocity”
from The Messenger (Sire Records 2013) N —Every time this song starts, I think it's going to be Ian Gomm, but, even though it never is, I'm still happy with it.
Big Star “Life Is White”
from Radio City (Ardent 1974) —There is a new documentary out on Big Star, and it's supposed to be exceptionally good.
