The 88 “Hide Another Mistake”
from Over and Over (EMK 2005) —I saw these guys a few years ago opening for somebody - they are capable of really interesting melodic pop.
The Bees “Pressure Makes Me Lazy”
from Every Step's a Yes (ATO 2011) N —It looks like this British group known as A Band of Bees in the US might be sneaking back to their real name.
from Red Velvet Car (Eagle 2010) —I think last year's Heart album is probably the best full-length record of their career. Yeah, you heard me.
Buffalo Killers “Circle Day”
from 3 (Alive 2011) N —These guys played an instore at Euclid Records the other day - I was very impressed.
The Coasters “It Ain't Sanitary”
from Juke Box Giants (Audio Fidelity 1982) —So Joe Tex wrote and recorded this gem originally, but then a latter-day version of the Coasters came along and did a version that sounded like their 50s classics. Amazing.
Nikki Jean “How To Unring a Bell”
from Pennies In A Jar (S-Curve 2011) N —Thom Bell wrote this one like it was left over for the Stylistics or something. Lovely.
Etta James “Groove Me”
from The Dreamer (Verve Forecast 2011) N —From what's been announced as the final record of Etta's long career, a nice cover of the King Floyd song. She's not at full strength, but she still sinks her teeth into this one.
The Ramones “Howling At the Moon (Sha La La)”
from Anthology (Rhino 1999) —The last time the Ramones chased a hit record, and it, like all the others, should have been one.
Joe Henry “After the War”
from Reverie (Anti 2011) N —This is such a classic Great American songbook style melody, though not a subject matter they used to tackle.
Tom Waits “Back In the Crowd”
from Bad As Me (Anti- 2011) N —A beautiful little ballad with some Mexican-influenced guitar.
John Doe “Never Enough”
from Keeper (Yep Roc 2011) N —It took a while, but this new John Doe record is really starting to hit me.
The Beach Boys “Cabin Essence”
from The Smile Sessions (CAPITOL 2011) N —A lot of people worship this lost Beach Boys record; I merely enjoy it now and again. This is an oddball little cut, though.
Imelda May “Pulling the Rug”
from Mayhem (Decca 2010) N —I bet Imelda May and this band put on some pretty amazing concerts.
Vince Gill “All Nighter Comin'”
from Guitar Slinger (MCA NASHVILLE 2011) N —I'm loving everything I've heard from this new Vince Gill album - the man just delivers great songs, great singing, great playing.
The Belle Brigade “My Goodness”
from The Belle Brigade (Reprise 2011) N —I do very much enjoy this contemporary country/pop band, and I owe Spencer Marquart for introducing me to them (and some other great stuff).
