7:00am

Tim Lee 3 “Get There First”
from Raucous Americanus (Cool Dog Sound 2010) N  —If I don't get there first, I don't know if I will last. What a great line, what a rockin' great song. Tim Lee just gets better and better.

7:04am

The Embarrassment “Celebrity Art Party”
from Heyday 1979-1983 (Bar/None Records 1995) —James Weber found a video for this song and posted it to Facebook, thus reminding me once again that these guys were the best band of the early 80s that almost nobody ever heard.

7:07am

Rosanne Cash “I Don't Want to Spoil the Party”
from Hits 1979-1989 (CBS 1989) —Rosanne just sings so beautifully on this Beatles cover.

LaVern Baker “Bumble Bee”

7:12am

The Searchers “He's Got No Love”
from Very Best of the Searchers (Sanctuary 1998) —The Searchers, who also covered the previous song, weren't so well known for their originals, but gee willikers! This is a terrific mersey beat number.

7:17am

Bob Dylan “Queen Jane Approximately”
from Highway 61 Revisited (Columbia 2004) —We played this album the other day at work - and of course I've always loved this song, but the out-of-tune bass always bothered me. But I'm starting to embrace it. What's going on in my head?

7:22am

Jackie Greene “Shaky Ground”
from Till the Light Comes CD Album (429 2010) N  —I don't understand how this guy, who is so rhythmically acute and melodically interesting, spends so much of his time hanging out with Phil Lesh.

7:29am

Terry Reid “Avenue”
from River (Water Music 1973) —I believe that slide guitar in the background is provided by David Lindley.

7:34am

Cassandra Wilson “If It's Magic”
from Silver Pony (Blue Note 2010) N  —Just a gorgeous take on the Stevie Wonder number.

7:38am

Aretha Franklin “Dark End of the Street”

Mavis Staples “Losing You”

from The Devil is an Angel Too (Alligator 2010) —A powerhouse take on the Ann Peebles classic.

7:51am

Myron Walden “Countrified” (Demi Sound 2010) N  —I don't know much at all about this saxophone player, but I do love this record - it's like a modern day King Curtis album, soul & jazz & gospel & country & rock all blended together beautifully. The guitarist, Oz Noy, is astounding.

8:02am

Generation X “Ready Steady Go”
from Generation X (Chrysalis 1978) —As good a song as there was in the entire punk rock era back in the day.

8:05am

Japan “Adolescent Sex” (Blue Plate 1978) —Mick Karn, bassist for this band, passed away the other day way too young. I respect what they did when they morphed into some exotic soundscape band, but I really dig this first album, a punky glammy thing, the most.

8:09am

Be Bop Deluxe “Love Is Swift Arrows”
from Axe Victim (EMI 1974) —I'd kinda forgotten how cool this record was until I threw it on at work the other day.

8:15am

8:36am

Ian Walsh and Kevin Buckley “Say Darlin' Say”
from Keeping It Reel (Mountain Rose www.buckleyandwalsh.com 2011) N L —Kevin Buckley of local pop group Grace Basement has a parallell career in the Irish folk world - this is actually an Appalachian song, but it's wonderfully done. CD release at McGurk's Monday night.

9:17am

Them “It's All Over Now, Baby Blue”
from Girl, Interrupted (Tvt 2000) —I've always loved the baroque sound of this Dylan cover. And, of course, Van Morrison nails the vocal.

9:21am

Electric Flag “Texas”
from A Long Time Comin' (Columbia 1968) —Oh, Michael Bloomfield on guitar, how I love you. And when Nick Gravenites sings "When you saw me on the streets, woman, you looked at me like I was a Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey clown." Ouch!
