Time zone: central


The Clash “Jimmy Jazz”
from London Calling CD Album (Epic unk 1979) —I had a vision of opening the show with this song - and now I've made the vision come true.


Psychedelic Furs “The Ghost In You”
from Mirror Moves (Columbia 1984) —It's just purty.


Jim Byrnes “He Was A Friend of Mine”
from Everywhere West (Black Hen Music 2010) —This former St. Louisian actor/musician does a lovely version of this old trad song.


BOBBY BLUE BLAND “Rockin' in the Same Old Boat”
from The Anthology (MCA 2001) —I forget which of my Facebook friends hipped me to this one this week - somehow, I'd never noticed this slow, menacing gem before.


Rosanne Cash “Our Little Angel”
from Retrospective (Columbia 1995) —Back when this compilation came out, I paid it no attention, since I had all the original Rosanne Cash records - then the other day I realized that I'm 16 years late hearing Rosanne sing this Elvis Costello classic.


Nick Lowe “Posioned Rose”
from The Old Magic (Yep Roc www.yeproc.com 2011) N  —And then I got to hear the forthcoming Nick Lowe album, and darned if he doesn't cover another one from King of America. That's how radio sets are born.


Elvis Costello “Sleep of the Just”
from King Of America (Columbia/Legacy. 1986) —This is one complicated song to unpack, though I know there's some bits in there about masturbating to pictures, and another odd reference to Madonna.


Peter Wolf “It's Too Late For Me”
from Midnight Souvenirs (Verve 2010) —Wolf is joined by Merle Haggard for a beautiful little number.


Laura Cantrell “Poison In Your Heart”
from Kitty Wells Dresses - Songs of the Queen of Country Music (Diesel Only 2011) N  —Laura Cantrell does a great job singing these old Kitty Wells numbers.


Ben Hall “Oklahoma Hills”
from Ben Hall! (Tompkins Square 2011) N  —I highly recommend you check out this talented young guitarist who plays mostly Merle Travis or Chet Atkins inspired instrumentals like this Woody Guthrie song. Produced by Eric Ambel.


Fairport Convention “Mr. Lacey”
from What We Did On Our Holidays (A&M 1969) —It's not exactly representative of the band's overall approach, but I always loved this little blues ditty.


Jimmie Vaughan “I Hang My Head and Cry”
from Plays More Blues, Ballads & Favorites (Shout! Factory 2011) N  —Gene Autry goes r'n'b. Here's my full review: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Jimmie-Vaughan-Plays-More-Blues-Ballads-And-Favorites-2011.htm


Howlin' Wolf “Shake It For Me”
from Rockin' the Blues: Live in Germany 1964 (Acrobat 2003) —Some live Wolf - yeah!


Etta James “Tough Lover”
from R&B Dynamite (Flair 1987) —She was really young when she made this - talk about rock'n'roll!


Steve Cropper “Messin' Up”
from Dedicated (429 www.429records.com 2011) N  —Sharon Jones is one of the few who can compete with Etta. My full review of this: http://blurt-online.com/reviews/view/3247/


Johnny Cash “Rock Island Line”
from The Sun Years (Rhino 1990) —Marshall Grant, the bassist for the original Tennessee Two who backed up Johnny Cash, passed away the other day.


Johnny Cash “I Walk the Line”
from The Sun Years (Rhino 1990) —And another example of his talent.


Delois Barrett Campbell w/ Oslo Gospel Choir “I've Got a New Home”
from Live in Chicago (Norske Gram 2002) —One of the great vocalists (and a star of the brilliant Say Amen, Somebody movie), Delois Barrett Campbell passed away the other day.


Bruce Springsteen “It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City”
from Hammersmith Odeon, London '75 (Live) (Columbia 2006) —One of the greatest live albums I know.


James Brown “People Get Up and Drive Your Funky Soul”
from Baadasss Cinema (Tvt 2002) —The cowbell & the blaxsploitation movie - a match made in heaven.


Isaac Hayes “Truck Turner (main title)”
from Baadasss Cinema (Beyond 2001) —It's like the theme from Shaft, only with cowbell.


B.t. Express “Express”
from Baadasss Cinema (Tvt 2002) —Some very impressive cowbell on this one.


Amy LaVere “Tricky Heart”
from Stranger Me (Archer Records www.archer-records.com 2011) N  —She'll be at Off Broadway tonight. Hope to see you there.


Marianne Faithfull “Gee Baby”
from Horses & High Heels (Naive 2014 2011) N  —I don't know the original of this, but I'm guessing it comes from New Orleans.


Dr. John “Jinky Jinx”
from Tribal Comp (429 www.429records.com 2010) —A nice slice of voodoo.


The Civil Tones “Sanctimonious Bee”
from City Stoopin' (Pravda 2011) N L —This St. Louis instrumental band has been around for something like 17 years, and they continue to make incredrible music.


Lee Morgan “Candy” (Blue Note 1957) —He was only 19 when he recorded this - unbelievable, when you think about it.


The Beatles “Lovely Rita”
from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Capitol Records 1967) —It's a silly lyric, but you can't argue with the tune or the production. And I haven't heard it in a long time.


Electric Light Orchestra “The Diary of Horace Wimp”
from Light Years: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra (Sony 1997) —A late period catchy ditty from ELO.


Teddy Thompson “Jonathan's Book”
from A Piece Of What You Need (Verve Forecast 2008) —Despite 5 albums, 4 of which are excellent, Teddy Thompson just can't sell records. How can you resist songs like this?


John Hiatt “Don't Wanna Leave You Now”
from Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns (New West 2011) N  —A beautiful song begging forgiveness.


Bill Frisell “Old Times”
from Sign of Life (Savoy Jazz 2011) N  —Frisell's latest features what he calls the 858 Quartet - Frisell on guitar, Jenny Scheinman on violin, Eyvind Kang on viola, and Hank Roberts on cello. It's fabulous.


Pat Metheny “Rainy Days and Mondays”
from What's It All About (Nonesuch 2011) N  —Like the Spanish Inquisition, nobody expects a 7 minute solo baritone guitar exploration of an old Carpenters song.


Sleepy Kitty “School's Out”
from Infinity City (Euclid 2011) N L —A simple and catchy pop song drenched in extra reverb.


David Lowery “The Palace Guards” (429 www.429records.com 2011) N  —This song sounds better and better as the year goes on and I navigate its twists and turns a bit better.


Liam Finn “Cold Feet”
from Fomo (Yep Roc www.yeproc.com 2011) N  —The kid can write some songs!


Devo “Uncontrollable Urge”
from Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! (Warner Bros 1977) —Amazing how weird these guys sounded when they first appeared, and how classic this sounds now.


French Frith Kaiser Thompson “Peppermint Rock”
from Invisible Means (Windham Hill 1990) —One of Richard Thompson's best and least known songs.


Big Star “Kanga Roo”
from Keep an Eye On the Sky CD Album (Rhino 2009) —Ending on a cheery number.
