Patti Smith “Words of Love”
from Rave On Buddy Holly (Fantasy 2011) N —This is one of those tribute album cuts that make the whole idea worthwhile, no matter how many wrong-headed modern artists you can cram into a Buddy Holly comp.
Beausoleil “La Dance de la Vie” (Rhino 1993) —One of my favorite bands in the world will be in town next Wednesday at the Old Rock House.
Paul Simon “So Beautiful or So What” (Universal 2011) N —Still the best album I've heard this year - You know life is what we make of it, so beautiful or so what.
The Bo-Keys “Got to Get Back (To My Baby)”
from Got to Get Back (Electrophonic 2011) N —They'll be playing at Euclid Records next Friday at 3 pm. This cut has Otis Clay with them, but he won't be at the instore.
Sade “The Moon and the Sky”
from Soldier Of Love (Epic 2010) —A darn near perfect distillation of what makes Sade good.
Love “My Little Red Book”
from Love (Elektra 1966) —I never get tired of this cover that annoyed Burt Bacharach because they didn't play all the chords.
Liam Finn “Don't Even Know Your Name”
from Fomo (Yep Roc 2011) N —This record hasn't grabbed me by the shoulders the way his debut did, but it's got some good songs, that's for sure.
Michael Fracasso “Saint Monday” (Michael Fracasso 2011) N —It just hit me how excited Larry Weir would have been to have a new record from Michael Fracasso.
