Sherry Rich “Pandora Mink”
from Dakota Avenue (Vitamin 2012) —This Australian singer/songwriter impressed the heck out of me when she did an instore at Euclid Records last Friday. The record, produced by the late Jay Bennett, took 12 years to come out. Don't know why.
Fleetwood Mac “Bleed to Love Her”
from Say You Will (Reprise 2003) —This could have gone on a Buckingham solo record, but it didn't, so I'll say it's a late F. Mac triumph.
Willie Nile “Sing Me a Song”
from Willie Nile (Razor & Tie 1980) —I do love the new Willie Nile, but it's nice to remember he's been this great for 33 years now.
Sam Phillips “I Need Love (with the Section Quartet)”
from Martinis & Bikinis (Virgin 1994) —John Wendland has a new record from Sam Phillips that I haven't even seen. Until I find it, here's a cool alternate of a classic from her.
Richard Thompson “The Great Valerio”
from The Chrono Show (Beeswing 2004) —Hey, I only just now got this collection of live stuff a few days ago, even though it came out 9 years ago. Nobody gets everything right away.
Peter Hammill “Candle”
from Fool's Mate (Virgin 1971) —I'm starting to dip my toes into the Hammill / Van Der Graaf waters, and I'm finding lots of cool treasures.
John Cale “Verses”
from 5 Tracks (Or 2004) —Sometimes, it's just comforting to hear that big, bold voice.
Elmore James “My Best Friend”
from Whose Muddy Shoes (MCA 1991) —I just can't get enough of Elmore James - it took me a long time to realize what a great singer he was.
Alice Smith “Loyalty”
from She (Rainwater 2013) N —I'm not very good at compiling lists of fave songs, but this one has to be one of my faves this year.
Sarah Bollinger “Hate to Love You”
from Both/And (self-released 2013) N L —St. Louis singer with some serious chops and a flair for funk. CD Release Aug. 30 at the Gramophone.
Was (Not Was) “Mr. Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore”
from Boo! (Ryko 2008) —Speaking of a flair for funk.
David Bowie “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)”
from The Next Day (ISO / Columbia 2013) N —I think the songs on this record work better when you hear them one at a time - definitely this one sounds good this morning.
Sloan “I Hate My Generation”
from Twice Removed (Geffen 1994) —I had an idea for a song similar to this concept back in 1979. But mine wasn't nearly as catchy or cool as this one.
