The Who “Substitute”
from A Quick One (Decca 1966) —That thunderous bass just kills me every time. And Moon's drums. And, well, all of it, really.
The Boomtown Rats “Joey's On the Streets Again”
from The Boomtown Rats (Mercury 1977) —Once upon a time, these guys made great records - a little Thin Lizzy here, a little Springsteen there, and voila! Classic pastiche.
Grease Band “All I Wanna Do”
from The Grease Band (Shelter 1971) —Peter Holsapple posted this song on Facebook the other day - this was the band that had backed Joe Cocker on the Mad Dogs & Englishmen tour. Great song.
Roky Erickson “Bermuda”
from Don't Slander Me (Pink Dust 1986) —I grew up near Bermuda Road, and boy, was I confused when I heard about the Bermuda Triangle. Roky, however, was never confused about it. "It's just the innocent Devil's triangle."
Ocean Colour Scene “The Riverboat Song”
from Moseley Shoals (MCA 1996) N —A new deluxe reissue of this collection reminds me that I heard almost no more exciting riff-rock song in the 90s than this one.
Any Trouble “As Lovers Do”
from Wheels In Motion (Stiff 1981) —These guys should have been stars - they had so many great songs that we should all be singing with warm nostalgia.
Lucinda Williams “Copenhagen”
from Blessed Single (Lost Highway 2011) N —I love the breathless quality of the verses, and the loving sound of the chorus, and that nasty guitar tone against the sweet pedal steel.
Joe Bonamassa “Tennessee Plates”
from Dust Bowl (J & R Adventures 2011) N —I never forget John Hiatt's perfect original of this, but he and Vince Gill join Bonamassa on a pretty nice new version here.
