The Jam “Away from the Numbers”
from In the City (Polydor 1977) —Every once in a while, I am struck once again by just how great the Jam could be. Right there on their first album, they came up with a song that could have been by the Who.
Dr. John “Feel Good Music”
from Tribal Comp (429 www.429records.com 2010) N —Another gem from the Dr., who has made more great records this past decade than he'd done in a long time.
Charles Brown “Black Night”
from Blues n' Brown (Jewel 1972) —I never knew Charles Brown co-wrote this song - I remember hearing local blues singer Rondo make this his own a few years back.
Carl Perkins “Matchbox”
from Original Sun Greatest Hits CD Comp (Rhino 1986) —I'd forgotten how amazing this record is - or at least I'd relegated it in my head to one of those accepted premises that needed some reinforcement.
Bob Seger System “Black Eyed Girl”
from Ramblin' Gamblin' Man Vinyl Single (Starline 1968) —It's hard to figure how the guy who made this psychedelic blues with the prominent cowbell ever turned into the dork he became, but it's true. Thanks to Mark Hyken for giving me a copy of this stuff.
Peter Case “Dig What You're Puttin Down”
from Wig! CD Album (Yep Roc www.yeproc.com 2010) N —I love the sound of this cut, with all that guitar reverb and the harp breaking through, and the one two drum beat.
Peggy Lee “When the World Was Young”
from Black Coffee & Other Delights (MCA 1994) —An unusual old-school pop song, with 2 minutes out of 3 devoted to the intro before we get to a short rendition of the verses.
Abigail Washburn “City of Refuge” (Rounder www.rounder.com 2011) N —Another great record from this modern folkie - lots of banjo, but no Chinese songs this time. It's released Aug. 31.
Ben Sollee “A Few Honest Words”
from Learning to Bend (Thirty Tigers 2008) —Sollee has worked with Washburn in the Sparrow Quartet - he's my favorite young folk cello player (actually, I've only heard this song, but I like it a lot, and want to hear more).
Teeny Tucker “I Wish We Could Go Back”
from Keep the Blues Alive (Te-Bo 2010) N —My review of this record: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Teeny-Tucker-Keep-The-Blues-Alive-2010.htm
