Buddy Guy “I Came Up Hard”
from Rhythm & Blues (RCA 2013) N —I was afraid of this record, what with the unnecessary guest stars which pepper the two discs, but dangit, it's Buddy Guy, and he's still great!
from Disraeli Gears (ATCO 1967) —I don't understand the song title, but come on - that's one monstrous groove!
The Animals “I'm Crying”
from The Best of The Animals CD Album (ABKCO 1987) —The cymbal dances, the keyboards pump, the guitar riff slinks, the tom-toms bounce, and Eric Burdon just rides it all.
Roundheels “Live With It”
from Phonocology (self 2013) N L —Fine new local band - CD release tonight at the Heavy Anchor.
Grant Hart “Morningstar”
from The Argument (Domino 2013) N —Well, you know how concept albums by aging punk rockers based on the works of John Milton & William Burroughs can go.
The Primitives “Shine”
from Pure (RCA 1989) —I've only recently begun to appreciate these guys had a lot more than just one great single ("Crash," in case you forgot it), not to mention more than one strong vocalist.
Donna The Buffalo “Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday” (SUGAR HILL 2013) N —I'm a sucker for these guys and their roots-rock Tex-Mex Cajun mash-up grooves.
Sleepy Kitty “School's Out”
from Infinity City (Euclid Records 2011) L —I know they have a new one coming out, with the big release party at the Pageant Aug. 23, but I felt like playing this cool one from the debut.
Meat Puppets “Time and Money”
from Rat Farm (Megaforce 2013) N —I don't know why there isn't a big huge wave of thanks for the Meat Puppets continuing to make cool music after all these years (and all that rehab for Curt).
Sparks “Something For the Girl With Everything”
from Propaganda (Island 1974) —Take a brief moment to realize this song and the previous one both came out in the same year.
The Zombies “She's Coming Home”
from Absolutely the Best (Varese Sarabande 1999) —Why aren't these guys considered up there with the giants of English pop/rock of the period? Most people seem to forget about them, but man, they were great!
Petula Clark “Lost In You” (Sony 2013) N —Have I mentioned she's 80, and she still sings like this?
Leonard Cohen “Crazy to Love You”
from Old Ideas (Columbia 2012) N —It's nice to hear his mature growling voice with the simple acoustic guitar accompaniment he so long ago abandoned.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
