Van Morrison “These Dreams of You”
from Moondance (Warner 1984) —I dreamed of playing cards in the dark, and you lost, and you lied.
Miranda Lambert “Look at Miss Ohio”
from Four the Record (Sony 2011) N —Once again I find myself liking a Gillian Welch song much better when somebody else sings it.
Vince Gill “Tell Me Fool”
from Guitar Slinger (MCA NASHVILLE 2011) N —I caught Vince Gill on Leno this week - strange he didn't pick one of the songs where he plays hot lead guitar, like this one.
Sugar Ray & the Bluetones “(That's Not Yet) One of My Blues”
from Evening (Severn 2011) N —My review of this record: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Sugar-Ray-And-The-Bluetones-Evening-2011.htm
Doll By Doll “The Palace of Love”
from Revenge of Memory (Cooking Vinyl 2006) —Jackie Leven, the mastermind behind one of the greatest bands of the late 70s, and one I only discovered at last a few years ago.
The Nice Boys “Teenage Nights”
from The Nice Boys (Birdman 2006) —Ted Ryan discovered these guys - a great power pop band (and cowbell user) I had never heard of.
Beck “Mixed Bizness”
from Midnite Vultures (DGC 1999) —Anna Zachritz played this album yesterday at work, and there it is, the cowbell song I'd completely forgotten.
John Doe “Little Tiger”
from Keeper (Yep Roc 2011) N —A sweet little song from a man who knows when to hold back and when to let go.
Bush Tetras “Too Many Creeps”
from Boom In the Night (ROIR 1995) —Laura Kennedy, the bassist for the Bush Tetras, passed away a few days ago. I had few cassettes back in the day, so I played in the car the ones I had quite often. These guys were in heavy rotation for a couple years there.
Paul Simon “Rewrite”
from So Beautiful or So What (Universal 2011) N —One of many highlights from Simon's incredible concert the other night; here's my review of the show: http://blurt-online.com/news/view/5666/
Joe Henry “Unspeakable”
from Reverie (Anti- 2011) N —I have the hardest time describing Joe Henry's stuff, but I think it's amazing.
Bill Frisell “You've Got to Hide Your Love Away”
from All We Are Saying (Savoy 2011) N —Bill Frisell, Greg Leisz, and Jenny Scheinman make for a great frontline trio on this John Lennon tribute.
Tom Waits “Last Leaf”
from Bad As Me (Anti- 2011) N —Keith Richards sings backing vocals, and he & Marc Ribot play guitar together. Lovely.
