7:00am

Chi-Lites “We Are Neighbors”
from For God's Sake Give More Power to the People (Brunswick 1971) —I listened to this album the other day - pound for pound, song for song, it's just right up there with the best r'n'b records of all time.

7:04am

Warren Zevon “Nightime in the Switching Yard”
from Excitable Boy (Rhino 1978) —When I discovered this album a million years ago, I played side one like a zillion times, which means that "Lawyers, Guns & Money" aside, I'd forgotten everything about side 2 until Jim Varvaris threw this on at work yesterday. A rare funk foray fr Zevon.

7:08am

XTC “Yacht Dance”
from English Settlement (Virgin 1982) —Tony Renner unearthed a live performance of this song from the Old Grey Whistle Test (by that, I mean he posted it to Facebook). Man, what a wonderful song.

7:12am

Soulive “Drive My Car”
from Rubber Soulive (Royal Family 2010) N  —Jazz funk group covers the Beatles - nicely done, actually.

7:17am

Charles Fambrough “A Little This, A Little That”
from Keeper of the Spirit (audioquest 1995) —Bassist Fambrough played brilliantly for a long time - he passed away on New Year's Day at the age of 60, too young.

7:23am

Afrocubism “Dakan”
from Afrocubism (World Circuit/Nonesuch 2010) N  —This is a damn perfect fusion of African and Carribean rhythm - but a heavily African sound. Beautiful.

7:26am

Joni Mitchell “Hana”
from Shine (Hear Music 2007) —There is a clave in this rhythm, too. And a wonderful off-kilter feel.

7:32am

Elvis Costello “National Ransom” (Hear Music 2010) N  —After seeing Costello perform this on one of the late-night TV shows, I always expect it to rock harder - it rocks enough, mind you, but it goes further live.

7:36am

Dave Alvin “Haley's Comet”
from Blue Blvd (Hightone 1991) —A song Alvin and Tom Russell co-wrote which perfectly captures the humanity of one of rock'n'roll's first stars.

7:40am

Raspberries “I Wanna Be With You”
from Fresh (CAPITOL 1972) —Oh, those ringing guitars, those earnest and horny vocals, those pounding rhythms! Damn! This is pop music!

7:44am

Dumptruck “Back Where I Belong”
from Lemmings Travel to the Sea (Devil in the Woods 2001) —This is one of those bands that should have owned the world back in the 80s - they had the songs, the sound, the look. But the zeitgeist went a different direction.

7:48am

Yardibirds “Evil Hearted You”
from Having a Rave-Up (Repertoire unk 1965) —A great song written by Graham Gouldman, later of Ten CC.

7:50am

Los Saicos “Demolicion” (Munster 2010) N  —The greatest three-chord rock'n'roll song you've never heard before.

7:53am

Brothers Lazaroff “What Are You Telling Me?”
from Give 'Em What They Need (self-released 2010) N L —A rich and complex little three minute song - and it's plenty catchy, too.

7:56am

The Beau Brummels “Just a Little”
from Best of the Beau Brummels: Golden Archive Series (Rhino 1987) —These guys were on the Flintstones!

8:04am

Garnett Mimms “Cry Baby”
from Best of Garnett Mimms: Cry Baby (CAPITOL 1993) —Look, I love the Janis Joplin version - and she taught me the song, which counts for a lot - but the original is pitch perfect.

8:07am

Bobby "Blue" Bland “Cry Cry Cry”
from Greatest Hits Vol. 1: The Duke Recordings (MCA 1998) —Speaking of pitch perfect - oh my goodness! Bobby "Blue" Bland could do no wrong.

8:10am

Johnny Cash “Cry Cry Cry”
from The Essential Johnny Cash (Columbia Legacy 2002) —A completely different song from the same time frame as Bland's - and one of Cash's greatest singles.

8:12am

Justin Townes Earle “Learning to Cry”
from Harlem River Blues (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2010) N  —A beautiful and sweet little country number from Steve's boy.

8:17am

Paul Revere & The Raiders “Just Seventeen”
from Indian Reservation / Collage (Raven 2009) —I gotta admit, I didn't realize these guys rocked like this at the end of their career - and with a perfect use of cowbell, too.

8:21am

Paul Revere & The Raiders “Let Me”
from Complete Columbia Singles (Collector's Choice 2010) —And another classic cowbell track from one of America's greatest rock bands back in the day.

8:23am

The Band “Time To Kill”
from Stage Fright CD Album (CAPITOL 1970) —I can't believe I hadn't noticed this cowbell gem until the other day - I wonder if Robbie Robertson was listening to some Doug Sahm when he wrote this.

8:27am

The Easybeats “Good Times”
from Singles As & Bs (Repertoire unk 2005) —Never get tired of playing these guys.

8:33am

from Intriguer CD Album (Fantasy 2010) N  —And then there's this off-shoot that's done well for itself.

8:40am

Villagers “Becoming a Jackal” (Domino 2010) N  —Tom Lunt has been singing the praises of these guys (really, this guy) and it's easy to hear why. What a gorgeous song!

8:44am

Kate Bush “Wow”
from Lionheart (EMI 1978) —Dreamy!

8:48am

Richard Barone “Odd Girl Out”
from Glow (Bar/None Records 2010) N  —A great song about how difficult it was to be gay before Stonewall.

8:55am

Robert Plant “You Can't Buy My Love”
from Band Of Joy (Rounder www.rounder.com 2010) N  —Plant might have sung songs like this when he was very young - this has a Merseybeat feel, albeit tougher than that.

9:03am

Gregg Allman “Floating Bridge”
from Low Country Blues (Rounder www.rounder.com 2011) N  —I forgot to record Letterman last night - wanted to catch Allman on that. By the way - holy moley! This cut is great!

9:15am

Big Mike Aguirre & the Blu-City All-Stars “Killing My Love”

9:40am

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings “She Ain't a Child No More”
from I Learned the Hard Way (Daptone 2010) —I kind of forgot about this great record for a while.

9:43am

The Impressions “Woman's Got Soul”
from Very Best of the Impressions (Rhino 1997) —She may not be the best looking woman I ever did see or have the charms of high society, but the woman's got soul.
