Jackie Greene “Grindstone”
from Till the Light Comes CD Album (429 2010) N —I often wonder how this guy gets along with the Deadheads - he puts out records with solid rhythms and well-developed melodies.
Crowded House “Saturday Sun”
from Intriguer CD Album (Fantasy 2010) N —I always feel like this Crowded House album is a beautiful pool, and I'm just floating along inside it.
Bob Dylan “One of Must Know (Sooner or Later)”
from Blonde on Blonde (Columbia 1966) —I didn't mean to make you so sad, you just happened to be there, that's all.
The Byrds “Chestnut Mare”
from Untitled (Columbia 1970) —I never get tired of this one - I've loved it since I was about 14.
Rory Gallagher “Tattoo'd Lady”
from Tattoo (Buddha 1973) —Back in 1973, Rory Gallagher couldn't have imagined how many tattoo'd ladies there would one day be.
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers “Good Enough”
from Mojo (Reprise 2010) N —While this is far from a great album, there are some great cuts, none finer than this one, on which Mike Campbell shows he's listened to some Roy Buchanan in his day.
Jeff Beck Group “Morning Dew”
from Truth (Sundazed Records 1969) —What? We've got that guitar, that voice (Rod Stewart's in his prime), and a cowbell on top? An embarrasment of riches, I tell you!
Bobby Hebb “Sunny” (Vivid Sound 1966) —His song was way better known than his name, but this guy had some talent - he passed away the other day.
Bobby Hebb “Yes or No or Maybe Not”
from Sunny (Vivid Sound 1966) —He didn't write a lot of his songs, but he wrote this one, and he wrote "Sunny," so he did alright.
Jerry Lee Lewis “You Can Have Her”
from Mean Old Man (Verve 2010) N —Sitting on the shelves here is a sampler from this upcoming release - this cut features Jerry Lee with Eric Clapton and James Burton.
Los Lobos “Burn It Down”
from Tin Can Trust CD Album (Shout! Factory 2010) N —I was reminded yesterday that, aside from the Disney album last year, Los Lobos hadn't released any new music in over 4 years. Their return is very welcome.
Patty Griffin “The Strange Man”
from Downtown Church CD Album (CMG 2010) N —Some of my fave records this year are gospel - this one, the Tom Jones, and upcoming Mavis Staples (which you'll hear in a couple weeks, I think).
Downchild “These Thoughts Keep Marching”
from I Need a Hat (Linus 2009) —I love this song about all the problems of the world wandering through one's brain.
