Bob Dylan “It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)”
from Before the Flood (Columbia 1974) —He won the Medal of Freedom for songs like this one - and I do love this rapid-fire live version.
Iggy Pop “Pleasure”
from Party (Arista 1981) —Sooner or later, baby, I'm gonna squeeze you just like a tomato / Sooner or later, I'm gonna bruise you just like some old potato.
Richard Barone “Silence Is Our Song”
from Glow (Bar/None 2010) —An absolutely gorgeous number from one of our great melodicists.
Supergrass “Brecon Beacons”
from Life On Other Planets (CAPITOL 2002) —Here's one of those bands that churned out a lot of really good records that I barely paid attention to while they were around. They always make me smile when I do, though.
Dorothy Moore “Misty Blue” (MALACO 1976) —One of those masterpieces that need to be revisited on a regular basis.
Sam Cooke “Baby Won't You Please Come Home”
from The Rhythm And The Blues (RCA 1995) —If you only buy one Sam Cooke record, I think it should be this one. But I can't imagine owning only one of anything.
Alejandro Escovedo “Big Station” (Fantasy 2012) —We're very close to the release of this new one from one of our greatest songwriters.
The Velvet Underground “I Can't Stand It”
from VU (Polydor 1985) —Now 27 years later, the songs on VU sound as classic as the ones on the original albums.
from The Bends (Capitol Records 1995) —Remember back in the day when these guys played so many cool songs that didn't sound like they were just randomly generated ideas?
Like everything else, times are approximate.
