Time zone: central


Patti Smith “Amerigo”
from Banga (Columbia 2012) N  —Quote from Lindsay, who does the excellent show before me: "I just think this song is so divine." Yup.


The Blood Oranges “Thief”
from Corn River (Hi-N-Dry Records 1990) —Probably my single favorite song by one of my favorite bands from the early 90s - they really should have stuck around to earn the accolades they deserved.


Anne McCue “Crazy Beautiful Child”
from ROLL (Cooking Vinyl 2004) —Every once in a while, I'm reminded that this Australian woman has made some delightful records.


Chuck Prophet “Who Shot John”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) N  —He'll be playing next Saturday at a Taste of Springfield, up in Springfield, IL. It's really cheap to get in, and the Jans Project are on the bill, too. It will be hot, though.


Elvis Costello “Blue Chair (Single Version)”
from Blood and Chocolate (Rhino 1985) —I love the album version, of course, but the single version is pretty cool, too.


The Ike Reilly Assassination “The Nightime is a Liar”
from We Belong to the Staggering Evening (Rock Ridge www.rockridgemusic.com 2007) —I look good in the faded light / Honey, that's where I shine.


Paul Simon “Paranoia Blues”
from Paul Simon (Columbia 1972) —I love the claustrophobic feel of this blues.


Fiona Apple “Daredevil”
from The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do (Columbia 2012) N  —She's operating at such a high level, intricate layers of creative ideas.


Allison Moorer “Is Heaven Good Enough For You”
from Show (Universal 2003) —Back in the day, we had Direct TV, and they had a channel that showed full concerts, and I saw Allison Moorer sing this song (and a bunch of others) and I found one of my favorite singers.


Kelly Hogan “I Like To Keep Myself In Pain”
from I Like to Keep Myself in Pain (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2012) N  —Gorgeous song written by Robyn Hitchcock specifically for Ms. Hogan.


Lulu “Without Him”
from From Crayons to Perfume: The Best of Lulu (Rhino 1994) —Lulu sings the heck out of this stunning Nilsson song.


Punch Brothers “Who's Feeling Young Now?” (Nonesuch 2012) N  —Chris Thile and company cover a lot of musical ground here - I'm still reeling from seeing these guys open for Paul Simon last fall.


The Clash “Koka Kola”
from London Calling CD Album (Epic 1979) —Elevator goin' up!


Jerry Lee Lewis “Chantilly Lace”
from Greatest Hits (Rhino 1981) —Hellooooooo, yoooooou good-lookin' thing, you.


The Jive Five “I'm a Happy Man”
from Doo Wop: Vocal Group Greats (Collectables 2005) —This guy swaggers because he's so happy.


Earl Gaines “White Rose”
from Night Train to Nashville - Music City Rhythm & Blues (1945-1970) (Lost Highway 2004) —I think it's possibly a commercial, but I don't care - it's just a blast of a song, probably the best about petroleum jelly ever written.


Miles Davis “A Night in Tunisia”
from Musings of Miles (Prestige 1955) —I like this laid-back take on a tune that's usually bursting bombs in your face.


Dakota Staton “When Sunny Gets Blue”
from Dynamic! (CAPITOL 1958) —Al Becker, former host of Voices in the Dark here on 88.1, has raved to me many times about Dakota Staton - with good reason. She was amazing, such control of pitch and phrasing.


Clifford Brown & Sarah Vaughan “He's My Guy”
from Sarah Vaughan with Clifford Brown (Verve 1955) —Of course, Sarah Vaughan was no slouch in those departments, either. Love her with the brilliant trumpeter Clifford Brown, who died way too soon.


Allen Toussaint “Mi Amour”
from I Believe to My Soul (Rhino 2005) —The various artists album that launched Joe Henry into the role of extremely busy producer.


Dr. John “Locked Down” (Nonesuch 2012) N  —I should apologize to anybody who told me this was Dr. John's best album in years, since I initially thought it wasn't as good as his last couple. You were right and I was wrong - this thing is a monster.


Jorge Ben “Filho Maravilha (Fio Maravilha)”
from Novo Millenium (Universal 2005) —Apparently this was some sort of soccer fight song - only in Brazil.


Andrew Bird “Fatal Shore”
from Break it Yourself (Mom + Pop 2012) N  —There are several songs on this new Andrew Bird album that I find to be just exquisite. This is one of them.


Brothers Lazaroff “Where Light Betrays the Night”
from Science Won (self-released 2012) N L —They'll be opening up for Kentucky Knife Fight at Off Broadway tomorrow night.


The Wandering “If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day”
from Go On Now, You Can't Stay Here: Mississippi Folk Music, Vol. 3 (Songs of the South www.nmallstars.com/ 2012) N  —Luther Dickinson assembled this roots super-group - I have long admired Amy LaVere, and I've heard of Shannon McNally. The other two members are new to me, but talented.


The Wailin' Jennys “Begin”
from Firecracker (Red House www.redhouserecords.com 2006) —This is such a beautiful, beautiful song.


Emitt Rhodes “Shoot the Moon”
from Listen, Listen: The Best of Emitt Rhodes (Varese 1995) —Why isn't this guy more widely acknowledged as one of the great songwriters of his time?


Bonnie Raitt “Down To You”
from Slipstream (Redwing Records 2012) N  —This is the only song on the new record that Bonnie Raitt gets a writing credit on. It kicks butt.


The Flatlanders “Indian Cowboy”
from Wheels of Fortune (New West www.newwestrecords.com 2004) —Butch Hancock never lets me down as a songwriter, and his singing has gotten infinitely better over the years.


Beausoleil “One-Step A Choupique”
from Cajunization (Rhino 1999) —Not just the best Cajun band in the world, but one of the very finest bands of any type in the world. Gosh, I love these guys.


Nathan James “Pain Inside Waltz”
from What You Make of It (Delta Groove 2012) N  —My review of this terrific new blues record: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Nathan-James-And-The-Rhythm-Scratchers-What-You-Make-Of-It-2012.htm


Billy Boy Arnold “Two Drinks of Wine”
from Windy City Blues (Fantasy unk 1992) —He's just a stranger, and he just got in our town.


Gladys Knight and the Pips “Room In Your Heart”
from Letter Full of Tears (Collectables 1961) —The young Gladys Knight belted out the fairly typical r'n'b of the day. It's got a good beat and you can dance to this, for sure.


Joan Osborne “I Don't Need No Doctor”
from Bring It On Home (Saguaro Road 2012) N  —With Ray Charles and Humble Pie in her head, Joan Osborne makes her own great version.


Jack Walrath & The Mastes Of Suspence “Get On the Good Foot”
from Serious Hang (Muse 1992) —Jazz trumpeter gets all funky covering James Brown.


The dB's “Write Back”
from Falling Off the Sky (Bar/None Records www.bar-none.com 2012) N  —Give the drummer some. Will Rigby gets to contribute an excellent song to the new one from his reunited band.


Richard Thompson “She Twists the Knife Again”
from Across a Crowded Room (Polydor 1985) —Oh, the tours Richard Thompson led back in the time of this record - arguably his best band ever.


ABBA “Take a Chance On Me”
from The Definitive Collection (utv 2001) —Stephen Colbert had a pretty funny bit with this song the other day, but dammit, even while laughing, I wanted to hear the real thing.


The Hives “Patrolling Days”
from Lex Hives (Disques Hives 2012) N  —I love this record, but no matter what I play before it or after, it always sounds jarring - I never have the rock with me that can live up to it.


Guided By Voices “Wings of Thorn”
from Universal Truths And Cycles (Matador 2002) —I know they have two new ones this year, but I'm still coming to terms with the old stuff.


Kevin Gordon “One I Love”
from Gloryland (Crowville Collective 2010) N  —This rocks pretty hard.


Ray Wylie Hubbard “Red Badge of Courage”
from The Grifter's Hymnal (Bordello www.raywylie.com 2012) N  —To err is human, to forgive divine / Ain't neither Marine Corps policy, neither is cryin'.


Sara Watkins “You're the One I Love”
from Sun Midnight Sun (Nonesuch 2012) N  —I picked it because it was short enough to fit at the end of the show, but this is one heck of a cool little song.
