Time zone: central
Hot Tuna “Water Song”
from Burgers (RCA 1972) —After all these years, I can still learn about music from my old friend Alex Weir - what a terrific cut that somehow I'd never heard before.
Danny Barnes “Caveman”
from Pizza Box (ATO 2009) N —We got bills to pay, we got shoes to shine, it ain't no different from the caveman time.
The Coal Porters “Like a Hurricane”
from Durango (Prima 2010) N —A delightful semi-bluegrass take on the Neil Young song - dig the harmonies.
George Shearing “Cuban Love Song”
from Best of George Shearing (1955-1960) (Blue Note 1995) —I never really gave George Shearing much of a listen - the man was so prolific, and I hadn't really read any strong recommendations. But now that he's passed away, I listened to some and heard a talented pianist.
Herman's Hermits “There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World)”
from A's B's & EP's (EMI 2004) —I miss the Zanti Misfits version of this one - they taught me to love the song.
Blind Faith “Well All Right”
from Blind Faith (Polydor 1969) —A song that would be nothing without the cowbell. Well, that's kind of harsh - I have always loved this one. But the cowbell is cool.
The Rutles “Cheese and Onions”
from The Rutles (Rhino unk 1978) —Neil Innes is the common chord between the Bonzos and the Rutles. The man knows his way around funny songs.
Etta James “Pushover”
from Her Best (Chess 1997) —I can't imagine anybody thinking Etta was a pushover, but I'm glad she tackled the accusation.
Cassandra Wilson “Lover Come Back to Me”
from Silver Pony (Blue Note 2010) N —Wilson and her band are so in tune with each other on this cut - listen to the way they play with each other's rhythms.
Ultravox “The Lonely Hunter”
from Ultravox! (Island 1977) —A bit of glam on the verge of inventing a whole new synth-pop approach.
Diane Birch “This Corrosion”
from The Velveteen Age (S-Curve 2011) N —I don't know what the story on this is - we have this 7-track EP here, but it's not in stores yet, to my knowledge. Bonus cowbell, too.
