Imelda May “All For You”
from Mayhem (Decca 2010) —My fave young vocalist of the past couple years. Love her stuff.
John Hiatt “We're Alright Now”
from Mystic Pinball (New West 2012) N —Yup, it's a new record from Mr. Hiatt, and it's got some great songs and some merely good ones, just like most of his records.
Bee Gees “Love You Inside Out”
from Spirits Having Flown (Reprise 1979) —A great song I've only recently discovered - I guess this wasn't as ubiquitous as their other hits of the time.
City Squirrel “Seeking Out Approval”
from Defeat (Red Pill 2012) N —St. Louis expatriate Stephan Bayley writes and sings great songs.
Ann Wilson “Get Together”
from Hope & Glory (Zoe 2007) —Stunning cover of a song that one would never think needed to be heard again - I love when somebody can find nuance in songs I didn't think had any left.
Iris DeMent “Go On Ahead and Go Home”
from Sing the Delta (Flariella Records 2012) N —You can hear the whole album streaming at kdhx.org - I was floored the other day when I listened. It's released next Tuesday, Oct. 2.
Jon Brion “Ruin My Day”
from Meaningless (Not On Label 2000) —You've heard his work as a producer, but you may have overlooked his very fine original music.
Iggy Pop “Butt Town”
from Brick By Brick MP3/file Album (Virgin 1990) —This was the last Iggy album I felt like playing more than once or twice. Still like it a lot.
Bert Jansch “On the Edge of a Dream”
from Edge of a Dream (Sanctuary 2002) —A late career record wherein Jansch just has a great time delivering songs, here in a rock band context.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse “Southern Pacific”
from Re-ac-tor (Reprise 1981) —In the week that I listened to Americana closely and really fell in love with it, I'm being as perverse as Neil Young, and playing a song from 30+ years ago on the radio.
Chicago “What Else Can I Say”
from Chicago III (Rhino 1971) —Those early albums by Chicago were so damn good - what the heck happened to them?
