Time zone: central
The Lovin' Spoonful “Never Going Back”
from Anthology (Rhino 1990) —I learned this song from the Beat Farmers, but the original is pretty great, too. And full of cowbell.
The Mastersons “Birds Fly South” (New West 2012) N —I have never looked forward to winter before, but I am definitely waiting for that first snow with baited breath.
Bob Dylan “Life Is Hard”
from Together Through Life (Columbia 2009) —Dylan will release a new record in September, and already, the internet is abuzz with complaints about the album cover. Wha?
Melody Den “Let Me Sleep”
from Melody Den (Perdition 2007) L —Not quite a love song from this St. Louis outfit which is still working on a follow-up record.
Debbie Davies “True Blue Fool”
from After the Fall (M.C. Records 2012) N —My review of this fine record is here: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Debbie-Davies-After-The-Fall-2012.htm
XTC “Complicated Game”
from Drums and Wires (Virgin 1979) —Complicated games are everywhere these days. But this is the most enjoyable one.
Brothers Lazaroff “I Could Stay Here For the Rest of My Life”
from Science Won (self-released 2012) N L —You can catch the stripped down Brothers Lazaroff performance at Harvest Sessions in Tower Grove Park Farmer's Market Saturday morning at 10 AM.
Jason Moran “Gangsterism on the Set”
from Same Mother (Blue Note 2005) —Jason Moran remains just about the most interesting jazz performer under 50 - I still reel from seeing him live a few years ago at the History Museum.
Rosco Gordon “The Chicken (Dance With You)”
from Let's Get High Single (JSP 1990) —I want to do it, I want to do the Chicken with you. Has there ever been a more enticing come-on?
Hank Williams “Rockin' Chair Money”
from Alone With His Guitar (MERCURY NASHVILLE 2000) —Some folks seem to be jealous, some don't seem to care, but I've got rockin' chair money to rock all the way from here. That's a different kind of rockin' than I'm used to hearing about in songs.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
