Time zone: central
Gary Moore “Still Got the Blues” (Charisma 1990) —His exquisite tone on this one reminds me of the late Danny Gatton.
Beach Boys “You Need a Mess of Help to Stand Alone”
from Carl and the Passions - So Tough (CAPITOL 1972) —I do rely on my friends - this is one of those records I've never really explored, but I believe it was Steve Scariano who raved about this song the other day, and he was right.
Fitz & the Tantrums “Pickin' Up the Pieces” (Dangerbird 2010) N —You may be lucky enough to have tickets, but their show at the Duck Room tomorrow night is sold out. Bet they tear it up.
Teddy Thompson “Looking For A Girl”
from Bella (Verve Forecast 2011) N —Everybody's looking. I read the other day that Teddy's records sell on average only 21,000 copies, and this just ain't right - so buy one today.
Kate Jacobs “Rey Ordonez”
from Home Game (Kate Jacobs 2010) N —In honor of spring training beginning, here's one of the most gorgeous songs I've heard that's partially about baseball.
NRBQ “Rocket #9”
from NRBQ (Columbia 1969) —I haven't heard the Sun Ra version in a while - was there a cowbell on that one, too?
NRBQ “You Can't Hide”
from NRBQ (Columbia 1969) —A cowbell-laden Q rocker.
Bryan Ferry “Me Oh My”
from Olympia (Virgin 2010) N R —This David Gilmour fellow who plays guitar on this cut - has he ever done anything else?
Rod Stewart “Lady Day”
from Gasoline Alley (Mercury 1970) —Not only was Rod Stewart one of the greatest interpretative singers ever, he could write great songs. Thanks to Said for reminding me of this one.
Donny Hathaway “Giving Up”
from Donny Hathaway (ATCO 1971) —Another classic Said brought back to my mind this week. (He was also responsible for the Sandy Denny cut earlier.)
The Creation “Making Time”
from Rushmore (Polygram 1999) —King of the woulda-shoulda-coulda bands of the 60s. What a monstrous song this is.
Gang Of Four “I Can't Forget Your Lonely Face”
from Content (Yep Roc 2011) N —I still haven't had a chance to check out this album, but this sounds like an interesting track right here.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
