Time zone: central


Ike & Tina Turner “Sweet Flustrations”
from 'Nuff Said (BGO 1971) —Tina Turner at the top of her always impressive game.


Wilson Pickett “Jealous Love”
from I'm In Love (Atlantic unk 1968) —Who is playing that killer guitar lick, and who came up with this sterling arrangement? Magnificent.


Jorge Ben “Ponta de Lança Africano”
from Beleza Tropical: Brazil Classics Vol. 1 (Luaka Bop unk 1989) —Speaking of killer guitar licks - this was the song that knocked me on my ass the first time I heard it, and it never stops blowing me away.


Marcia Ball “Between Here and Kingdom Come”
from Roadside Attractions (Alligator 2011) —A perfectly lovely original r'n'b number.


Donny Hathaway “Sugar Lee”
from Everything Is Everything (ATCO 1970) —Sorry for all the false starts and crazy stuff - I'm trying to get the hang of something different this morning. Any way, we're trying.


Chicago Transit Authority “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?”
from Chicago Transit Authority (Columbia 1969) —One of my all-time favorite songs from back in the days when this band was so gosh-darn perfect. How did they wake up a couple years later and turn into what they became?


Richard Thompson “Saving the Good Stuff For You”
from Electric (New West 2013) N  —A new album from Richard Thompson - you bet I'm celebrating!


Rufus Wainwright “California”
from Poses (DreamWorks 2001) —Ah, Rufus - this was back when he was a young whippersnapper.


Abigail Washburn “City of Refuge” (Rounder www.rounder.com 2011) —I can speak on the topic of religion, just can't seem to make a career decision.


Donald Fagen “I'm Not the Same Without You”
from Sunken Condos (Reprise 2012) N  —Fagen's album is the best thing he's done in 30 years, methinks.


The Kinks “Complicated Life”
from Muswell Hillbillies (RCA 1971) —Cut out the struggle and strife, it only complicates your life.


Sam Phillips “Holding On To the Earth”
from The Indescribable Wow (Virgin 1988) —I remember getting this album on cassette when it was new. I never liked getting cassettes, but I loved this record.


Fleetwood Mac “Did You Ever Love Me?”
from Penguin (Reprise 1973) —From the songwriting team of Christine McVie and Bob Welch.


The Vondrukes “Little Bit Like”
from Runaway, Goodbye Love (self-releases 2011) —I'm looking forward to some new music from these talented St. Louisians this year.


Dolly Varden “Why Why Why”
from For a While (Mid-Fi 2013) —These guys have made a masterful record - it just keeps sounding better to me.


John Lennon “Mind Games” (Apple 1973) —I was 14 when this song was new, but somehow, whenever I hear it, I feel closer to 10.


Mott the Hoople “Roll Away the Stone”
from The Hoople (Columbia 1974) —To this day, it boggles my mind that my brother bought this record when it was new. He gave no other evidence of being this hip, but that's how I first heard Mott, so I'm glad he did.


Melody Den “Life He Had”
from Storylines (Perdition 2013) N L —A song about aging and dying - powerful.


Elvis Costello “Blue Chair”
from Blood and Chocolate (Rhino 1985) —I remember I had this crazy idea I could learn to play bass, and I tried to copy what Bruce Thomas plays on this cut. Boy, was that stupid. I should have tried Dee Dee Ramone.


The Sights “Fool (I Can't Stop Making Out With You)”
from Left Over Right (HRM 2011) —This ever-evolving but always entertaining band has just released a new single, but I don't have that. So, how about a great song from two years ago?


Karate Bikini “Breaking Up With You”
from Sauce of the Apple Horse (self 2012) L —Another great St. Louis band with plans to record a new record this year.


999 “Emergency”
from DIY: The Modern World - UK Punk II (1977-78) (Rhino 1993) —There are many bands with one masterpiece in them - 999 had two. This is one of them.


Joan Armatrading “When I Get It Right”
from Walk Under Ladders (A&M 1981) —Possibly the best match of singer-songwriter from another world with the New Wave sounds of the day. Love this record.


Bhi Bhiman “Kimchi Line”
from Bhiman (Boocoo Music 2012) —I'm not a fan of cabbage myself. But this is a great song.


The Sun Sawed In Half “You're the Something”
from Elephants Into Swans (self 2013) N L —The band has scattered to different corners of the country, but the music they put together is better than ever.


Supergrass “Brecon Beacons”
from Life On Other Planets (CAPITOL 2002) —A consistently good band I often forget I like.


Marshall Crenshaw “Someplace Where Love Can't Find Me”
from The Best of Marshall Crenshaw: This Is Easy (Rhino 1983) —Crenshaw's new music is available only online - his older stuff is still out there in the physical world.


Chuck Prophet “Play That Song Again”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) —Chuck Prophet shines!


Ass Ponys “Ape Hanger”
from Electric Rock Music (A&M 1994) —Back there for a couple years, nobody knew what could become popular. This extremely odd band even had a hit, which enabled people to hear other cool songs like this one.


Half Knots “Colorado”
from Proof (self 2013) N L —This St. Louis band has outdone themselves with the material on this terrific new release.


Lou Reed “Turn To Me”
from New Sensations (RCA 1984) —I listened to this album the other day, and was surprised to find myself singing along with every song, despite not having played it in 25 years. Maybe the last great Lou Reed record?


Steven Staicoff “The Man Who Walked on the Moon”
from Tremore in Trimore (self 2012) L —How to get a nice little song about an astronaut.


Marvin Gaye “I Want You” (Motown 1976) —One of Marvin's greatest, most seductive grooves.


The Rascals “Easy Rollin'”
from Anthology (1965-1972) (Rhino 1992) —Not always the first song you remember, but a sweet one, nonetheless.


David Johansen “Melody”
from In Style (American Beat 1979) —This album confused the heck out of me when it was brand new, but I can dig its soul vibe more now than I did then.


Lee Dorsey “Yes We Can”
from The Best of Lee Dorsey (Repertoire 2006) —An Allen Toussaint rhythmic treasure (with the Meters, I think). Happy Mardi Gras, folks.


Art Neville “Skeet Skat”
from Brother to Brother (Fuel 2000 www.fuel2000.com 2003) —I think Art Neville's solo recordings are among the greatest treasures of New Orleans, and they don't get nearly the attention they deserve.


Allen Toussaint “Bright Mississippi”
from The Bright Mississippi (Nonesuch 2009) —Allen Toussaint plays some cool jazz.


Miles Davis “Directions (Live)”
from Live in Europe 1969:The Bootleg Series Vol. 2 (Columbia 2013) N  —It's Miles, still with Wayne Shorter, but now with Chick Corea, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette - three discs of material that I've only imagined could be great, and now we can hear it.


Femi Kuti “Nobody Beg You”
from Africa for Africa (Knitting Factory www.knittingfactoryrecords.com 2011) —Cool ass segue right there.


Calexico “No Te Vayas”
from Algiers (Anti- 2012) N  —I like when Calexico sings in Spanish. It's pretty.
