Rolling Stones “I Wanna Be Your Man”
from Singles 1963-1965 (ABKCO 2004) —Lennon and McCartney probably tossed this one off while in line at the fish & chips shop, but I love it! Wha a nasty guitar solo!
The Stooges “I Wanna Be Your Dog”
from The Stooges (Elektra 1969) —I always think of the memorable John the Mailman rendition of this cut, the only song he knew how to play on guitar.
The Ramones “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend”
from The Ramones (Sire/ABC 1976) —Hey little girl, I wanna be your boyfriend. The Ramones showed their sweet side from the beginning. That's all Joey.
Bob Dylan “Is Your Love in Vain”
from Street Legal (Columbia 1978) —I have to admit I've never really listened to Street Legal, but Clint Heylin's recent book on Dylan's songs made me go back and at least sample this one. Gonna hear more one of these days.
El Guincho “Bombay”
from Pop Negro (Young Turks 2010) N —More world sampling dance joy from this Spanish mixmaster. Come on, try to avoid smiling when you hear it.
Robert Plant “House of Cards”
from Band Of Joy (Rounder 2010) N —A powerful take on the Richard Thompson classic - can't wait to hear the rest of this record. I mean Plant with Buddy Miller & Patty Griffin? That's a talented line-up there.
Bill Frisell “Winslow Homer”
from Beautiful Dreamer (Savoy 2010) N —Bill Frisell has some fun with viola player Eyvind Kang and drummer Rudy Roston on this impish Monkish tune.
Leonard Cohen “Lover, Lover, Lover”
from Songs From the Road (Columbia 2010) N R —Apparenlty there were more great live songs left off the Live in London album (and a few different versions of the songs that Cohen has to sing every time).
Jamey Johnson “Poor Man Blues”
from The Guitar Song (Mercury 2010) N —So many new records I want to hear this week - how am I gonna find time for a 2-disc set that's getting rave reviews? This cut is great.
The Byrds “5D (Fifth Dimension)”
from Fifth Dimension (Columbia 1966) —ONe of those songs that's been in my life forever, but really just jumped out at me for the first time in ages how great it really is.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
