Time zone: central


Miles Davis “Gemini/Double Image”
from Live-Evil (Columbia 1971) —Some tough John McGlaughlin guitar on this dark, entrancing cut.


Neil Young “Hitchhike”
from Le Noise (Reprise 2010) N  —Neil Young's heavily reverbed guitar flows nicely out of the Miles cut, if I do say so myself.


The Animals “When I Was Young”
from House of the Rising Sun CD Single (self 2000) —For girls I had a bad yen. They don't write 'em like that no more. (But, seriously, this is a great record, withone stupid line.)


The Band “Going Back to Memphis”
from Moondog Matinee (Capitol Records 1973) —A terrific outtake of a song that only reached the light of day nine years back when they reissued this CD.


The SteelDrivers “Ghosts of Mississippi”
from Reckless (Rounder Records www.rounderrecords.com 2010) N  —The whole album is good, but his dark, brooding and intense cut really stands out from the pack.


Elvis Costello “Jimmie Standing In the Rain”
from National Ransom (Hear Music 2010) N  —My first time hearing anything from this record - this song is one of those 7th chord laden early 30s pastiches, and I think I love it.


Justin Townes Earle “Slippin' and Slidin'”
from Harlem River Blues (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2010) N  —Apparently Justin is trying to emulate his daddy's old desires for self-destructive behavior, but this is still a great record.


Robin Rogers “You Don't Know”
from Back In the Fire (blind pig www.rounder.com 2010) N  —My review of this is here: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Robin-Rogers-Back-In-The-Fire-2010.htm


Roy Head “Treat Her Right”
from Billboard Top Rock & Roll Hits: 1965 (Rhino 1989) —One of the greatest dance records ever. Of course, all the dancing I ever did to this song was when the Morells used to play it.


ZZ Top “Precious and Gone”
from Tres Hombres (Warner Brothers 1973) —An atypical spproach to the guitar solo, but a typically spectacular result. Billy Gibbons and his pals rule!


James Brown “Super Bad (Single Version) [Parts 1 & 2]”
from The Singles Vol. 7: 1970-1972 (Polydor 2009) —Make it funky!


Monareta “Matanza Funk”
from Picotero (Nacional Rcds. 2008) —They have a brand new album, but I haven't heard it yet - this cut, however, is weird and very cool.


Janelle Monáe “Dance or Die”
from The ArchAndroid (Wondaland/Bad Boy 2010) N  —She'll be in town next Thursday with Of Montreal at the Pageant.


Of Montreal “Coquet Coquette”
from False Priest (Polyvinyl www.polyvinylrecords.com 2010) N  —They'll be in town next Thursday with Janelle Monae at the Pageant.


Thin Lizzy “Do Anything You Want To”
from Black Rose: A Rock Legend (Mercury 1979) —Just a masterful song and recording - thanks to Brian Henneman's Facebook posting for reminding me.


Johnny Thunders “Ask Me No Questions”
from So Alone CD Album (sire 1978) —A great song made even greater by the cowbell.


Pete Townshend & Ronnie Lane “Misunderstood”
from Rough Mix (Polydor 1977) —The cowbell makes this one even better, too.


Joan Jett And The Blackhearts “Too Bad on Your Birthday”
from Bad Reputation (JVC 1981) —I don't know where Joan got this song, but it rocks - and it has cowbell.


Warren Zevon “Down in the Mall”
from Transverse City (Virgin 1989) —Warren probably thought malls would never fade away - they're not dead yet, but they ain't what they once were, that's for sure.


Solomon Burke “Medley: If You Need Me/Tonight's the Night/You're Good for Me/I Almost Lost My Mind/What Am I Living For/Just Out of Reach”
from Soul Alive! (Rounder www.rounder.com 1988) —From one of the greatest live albums of all time - we lost a great one when we lost the King of Rock'n'Soul.


Solomon Burke “Just Out of Reach (Of My Two Empty Arms)”
from Only the Best of Solomon Burke (Collectables 2009) —I figured it wouldn't hurt to hear the original of that last song.


Solomon Burke “Oh What a Feeling”
from Nothing's Impossible (E1 Entertainment 2010) N  —He still made great music right up until the end.


Solomon Burke “Proud Mary”
from Proud Mary: The Bell Sessions (Sundazed 2000) —Solomon Burke actually did this before Ike & Tina, I believe.


Albertina Walker and The Caravans “Sail Away”
from This is Gospel: Sail Away Some Bright Morning (Calvin 2007) —Another great vocalist passed away this past week, too.


Chairmen of the Board “That's My Story (And I'm Sticking To It)”
from Soul Tapestry (Surfisde 2009) —General Norman Johnson of this great soul group passed away yesterday - this was all I could track down on short notice, and it's still terrific.


Brian Eno “Third Uncle”
from Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) (EG Records 1974) —Eno made dance music for nerds like me back in the day.


Mark Ronson & the Business “Lose It (In the End)”
from Record Collection (RCA 2010) N  —Ghostface Killah sounds cool in this dance context.


Fairport Convention “Genesis Hall”
from Unhalfbricking (Hannibal 1969) —I just read on allmusic.com that Richard Thompson's contributions to this album weren't memorable. Excuse me? You don't remember this masterpiece?


Richard Thompson “Big Sun Falling In the River”
from Dream Attic (Shout Factory www.shoutfactory.com 2010) N  —And he still writes memorable songs.


Raul Malo “Sinners & Saints” (Fantasy 2010) N  —The first cut of the album, and the first song Raul Malo played live last week - magnificent.


Mexican Institute of Sound “Cumbia”
from Soy Sauce (Nacional 2009) —Okay, this Nacional label seems to have some things on the ball - DJ music out of Mexico!


Them “Here Comes the Night”
from Them Featuring Van Morrison (Decca Record Co./London) —The young Van Morrison sounds so sanguine here - I love this cut.


The Move “Flowers in the Rain”
from Omnibus: The 60s Singles As and Bs (Edsel 1999) —Happy music.


John Mayall “Key to Love”
from Bluesbreakers With Eric Clapton (Deram 1966) —One of the all-time great Clapton solos here.


Robert Plant “House of Cards”
from Band Of Joy (Rounder www.rounder.com 2010) N  —I forgot I could have played this back when I was talking about Richard Thompson and his memorable songs.


Jamey Johnson “By the Seat of Your Pants”
from The Guitar Song (Mercury 2010) N  —Barry Mazor says this is the best country record of the past 25 years - I haven't heard nearly as much as he has, but I doubt there's much better.


Mavis Staples “Creep Along Moses”
from You Are Not Alone (Anti 2010) N  —It bothers me to read all the reviews calling this her best record in ages, when it's not as good as the one that came before it - but it's sure awfully good, and I'm glad to see Mavis getting some attention again at last.


Mollie O'Brien & Rich Moore “The Ghost of You Walks”
from Saints & Sinners (Remington Road 2010) N  —Going out with one final example of Richard Thompson's memorable songwriting.
