Steve Gerard & the National Debonaires featuring Dave "Elmo" Bailey “Clear View”
from New Sounds From Kansas City (soundgate records 2007) —special mention needs to be made of Shinetop Jr's piano playing on this one. Much of the band is from K.C., with Steve Gerard actually being a Calgary boy.
SOULARDBLUES BAND “You Ain't Said”
from Nothing To Lose (King Solomon Records 1984) L —written by Jim McLaren, the band had Thurston Lawrence (Larry Thurston) singing, Tom Maloney on gtr, Kirk Grice on the kit, Cotton & McLaren as The Little Big Horns, and Art Dwyer leading the band and playing bass gtr.
Dogtown Allstars “Love Is for Me”
from Live At the Venice Cafe CD Album (self 2007) L —Nathan Hershey singin' here, as the Allstars do The Meters proud. I used this band as a "date check" band...if my lady friend of the evening couldn't dig the Allstars, then she wasn't gonna work out for ol' East Side Slim !
The Spinners “The Rubberband Man”
from A One Of A Kind Love Affair The Anthology (Atlantic Records 1991) —This is the full album version, and remember this being one of the 1st tunes I heard as a young boy that made me realize that there was music out there that was "different" - that reaches you in an entirely different way than music de jour did..
