Time zone: central

7:01am

Electric Light Orchestra “Above the Clouds”
from A New World Record (EPIC/LEGACY 1976) —A short but very sweet little tune from Jeff Lynne, featuring one of them new-fangled synthesizers.

7:03am

Roy Wood “Premium Bond Theme”
from Through the Years: The Best of Roy Wood (EMI 1996) —Have you noticed over the years that I really love this Roy Wood guy? This is as cool as any James bond theme ever.

7:07am

Ocean Colour Scene “The Riverboat Song”
from Moseley Shoals (MCA 1996) —My favorite riff-rocker of the 90s. These guys should have been huge.

7:14am

Lindsey Buckingham “End of Time”
from Seeds We Sow (Eagle Records 2011) —He still knows how to write a catchy hook-filled chorus.

7:18am

The Pretenders “Rosalee”
from Break Up the Concrete (Shangri-La 2008) —One of Ms. Hynde's best songs, hidden on this late-career record owned by comparatively few. Really seductive groove here.

7:22am

The Band “King Harvest (Has Surely Come)”
from The Band (CAPITOL 1969) —Will the crops grow or won't they?

7:26am

Garland Jeffreys “I'm Alive”
from The King of In Between (Luna Park 2011) N  —An exclamatory statement of continued existence.

7:32am

Bhi Bhiman “Time Heals”
from Bhiman (Boocoo Music 2012) N  —Well, Roy Kasten called and told me I pronounced his name right, so I feel pretty good this morning. I only just heard this guy for the first time because Robert Christgau loved the album; it's pretty darn good stuff.

7:37am

Glen Campbell “Nothing But the Whole Wide World”
from Ghost on the Canvas (Surf Dog Records 2011) N  —Glen Campbell sings my fave Jakob Dylan song. Gorgeous.

7:41am

Jakob Dylan “Oh, Mama, Come Home”
from The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams (Columbia 2011) N  —Given some lyrics written by Hank Williams, I think it's nice that the younger Dylan picked up on the blues element, rather than the waltzes that almost everyone else on this record went with.

7:45am

Bill Monroe “Molly and Tenbrooks (The Race Horse Song)”
from Columbia Country Classics Vol. 1: The Golden Age (Columbia 1990) —I love a good race horse song. More interesting actually than the race horse TV show on HBO.

7:48am

Del McCoury Band “I'm Lonesome I'm Blue”
from Old Memories: The Songs of Bill Monroe (MCCOURY Music www.mccourymusic.com 2012) N  —I never get tired of hearing this man sing.

7:51am

Tony Rice “Muleskinner Blues”
from The Bill Monroe Collection (Rounder www.rounder.com 2012) —Tony Rice, Bela Fleck, and Vassar Clements go to town on Monroe's best known song.

7:55am

Count Basie “Jumpin' at the Woodside”
from Complete Decca Recordings (MCA Records/GRP Records 1992) —Where is Gene Gene the Dancing Machine?

8:03am

Dave Edmunds “Girls Talk”
from Repeat When Necessary (Swan Song 1979) —One of the earliest and one of the best Elvis Costello covers - except I think this came out before Costello's version.

8:06am

The Notorious Cherry Bombs “Sweet Little Lisa”
from The Notorious Cherry Bombs (Universal South 2004) —Vince Gill & Rodney Crowell do the killer song I first heard on the same Dave Edmunds album which gave us "Girls Talk."

8:09am

Elvis Costello “Lipstick Vogue”
from This Year's Model (Columbia 1978) —Pete Thomas and Bruce Thomas had a lot of incredible moments over the years - this may be their greatest triumph together.

8:12am

Lord Large & Dean Parrish “Left Right and Centre”
from Dig The New Breed (Acid Jazz Records 2010) —A British record from 2002 that sounds like it was made in 1966. Either way, I only recently heard it for the first time, so it's an unheralded classic to me.

8:18am

Dave Alvin “Harlan County Line”
from Eleven Eleven (Yep Roc 2011) N  —Who would have ever predicted back when Dave Alvin started making solo records that he'd find a way to turn that voice into something entirely effective? I love the way he intones this song.

8:23am

Steve Forbert “On the Streets of This Town”
from Streets Of This Town (Geffen 1988) —There are a lot of Steve Forbert albums out there, but this is the one I've turned to more often than the others.

8:27am

Emory Joseph “Bird Song”
from Fennario (Megaforce 2008) —What if Grateful Dead songs were performed by somebody with talent? Here's a great example.

8:32am

Sarah Jarosz “Floating In the Balance”
from Follow Me Down (Sugar Hill Records www.sugarhillrecords.com 2011) N  —Yeah, it helps if you can call Jerry Douglas in on dobro, and Stuart Duncan on fiddle, but I suspect this would be a great performance even without them.

8:35am

Martha Wainwright “Hearts Club Band”
from I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too (Drowned In Sound 2008) —"You look better under water where my eyes can't see." Ouch.

8:39am

Alyssa Graham “'til My Heart Quakes”
from Lock Stock and Soul (100% Womon 2012) N  —Meshell Ndegeocello plays bass on this record, which seems appropriate to the kind of songs Graham sings.

8:44am

Fairport Convention “White Dress”
from Meet On the Ledge: The Classic Years (1967-1975) (A&M 1999) —Sandy Denny. Swoon.

8:49am

The Secret Sisters “The One I Love Is Gone”
from The Speaking Clock Revue: Live From the Beacon Theater (Shout! Factory 2011) —Guess I should have played this one back when I was doing the other Bill Monroe songs, huh?

8:53am

Danny Barnes “Dirt On the Angel”
from Dirt On The Angel (Terminus Records 2003) —I hadn't heard this album in a long time, and then this song just stunned me the other day when it came up on my itunes.

9:01am

John Hiatt “Detroit Made”
from Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns (New West 2011) N  —It's harder to write good songs about cars nowadays, but I think Mr. Hiatt did all right this time.

9:05am

Jamey Johnson “Poor Man Blues”
from The Guitar Song (Mercury 2010) —I wonder if Mitt Romney likes this one.

9:08am

Bert Deivert “Cypress Grove”
from Kid Man Blues (Hard Danger 2011) N  —Swedish folk harmonica, Thai guitar and Mississippi Delta blues. Stunning.

9:17am

Robbie Fulks “Billie Jean”
from Happy (Boondoggle 2010) —Another way of performing a song so ubiquitous.

9:20am

The Blind Boys of Alabama “Lead Me Home”
from Take the High Road (Saguaro Road 2011) N  —These guys can still sing, even without Clarence Fountain. I've never been disappointed by a record under this brand name.

9:25am

Johnny Adams “Lonely Man”
from Heart & Soul (Vampi Soul vampisoul.com 1969) —Speaking of singing!

9:28am

Ray Charles “Love's Gonna Bite You Back”
from Rare Genius The Undiscovered Masters (Concord 2010) —I don't remember the story behind these really nice songs that weren't released until a couple years back. Late 70s Ray, still a genius.

9:32am

Kevin Gordon “Colfax / Step In Time”
from Gloryland (Crowville Collective 2010) N R  —Not just anybody can make a 10 minute song this fascinating.

9:42am

Randy Newman “Remember”
from For the Love of Harry: Everybody Sings Nilsson (MusicMasters 1995) —It only made sense for Randy Newman to appear on a tribute to the man who made a whole album of Newman's songs.

9:47am

The Creation “How Does It Feel to Feel (Previously Unreleased Version)”
from Complete Collection Vol. 1 Making Time (Sin-Drome 1998) —I like this version because it's 35 seconds longer than the regular one - why weren't these guys more famous? They strike me as being in the top 10 British bands of their era.

9:51am

The Redwalls “Love Her”
from De Nova (CAPITOL 2005) —If I was gonna try to list the great songs of the first decade of this century, this one would have to be on it - just so ferociously exuberant.

9:55am

Brian Eno “Backwater”
from Before and After Science (Virgin 1977) —I can't count those beats per minute like the fancy club djs, but I think I nailed this seque.
