Time zone: central
War “Sun Oh Son”
from Anthology (Avenue 1994) —One of many exhibits I keep in my brain against an ill-considered statement a friend made 25 years ago about how flutes are never good - and then it gets funky.
Etta James “Wet Match”
from the right time (Elektra 1992) —Her spoken intro cracks me up - "After the love-making, I said I don't mean to embarrass you but listen . . ."
Sun Sawed In 1/2 “My Only Lonely Soul”
from Elephants Into Swans (self 2013) N L —One of St. Louis's best bands (though they live in several different cities now) has a new album out, and it's darn good.
Lindsey Buckingham “In Our Own Time”
from Seeds We Sow (Eagle Rock 2011) —I love what he does on guitar here - sometimes his fingerpicking excesses get annoying, but sometimes they are beautiful.
Shelby Lynne “Old #7”
from Tears, Lies & Alibis (Everso 2010) —After I saw her at Pridefest last year, singing without a microphone, I gained an even greater respect for her vocal skills.
Curtis Salgado “Let Me Make Love to You”
from Soul Shot (Alligator 2012) —How do you take an O'Jays classic and make the hairs on your neck stand up even more? Don't ask me, ask Curtis Salgado.
