Delaney & Bonnie “I Know How It Feels To Be Lonely”
from D & B Together (Sony Legacy 2003) —Bonnie Bramlett sings the heck out of this soul ballad.


Leon Russell “Delta Lady”
from Leon Russell (Shelter Records 1970) —A true barn burner.


Joan Armatrading “Love and Affection”
from Joan Armatrading (A&M 1976) —What a gorgeous song I hadn't heard in years - I am not in love, but I am open to persuasion. Thanks to Said for reminding me of it.


Esperanza Spalding “A Knowledge of Good and Evil”
from Chamber Music (Heads Up www.concordmusicgroup.com/labels/heads-up 2010) N  —Unbelievable vocal tour de force here! And no words.


Janelle Monáe “Dance Or Die”
from The ArchAndroid (Wondaland/Bad Boy 2010) N  —That cyborg beat really gets me going.


The Clash “Jimmy Jazz”
from London Calling CD Album (Epic) —It couldn't have been easy to write a traditional sounding outlaw song out of whole cloth, but the Clash pulled it off masterfully.


The Remains “Don't Look Back”
from The Remains (Epic 1966) —One of the first classic reissues I ever bought, back in 1978, when I got it on red vinyl. This, however, is a regular colored CD.


13th Floor Elevators “You're Gonna Miss Me”
from Garage Rock Classics (Varese Sarabande 2004) —Let's hear it for the electric jug!


Nick Lowe “Big Kick, Plain Scrap”
from Labour of Lust (Yep Roc 1979) —When oh when will the marvels of Nick Lowe's second album be available on CD?


Flamin' Groovies “You Tore Me Down”
from Shake Some Action (AIM Records www.aiminternational.com 1976) —The whole album is great, but there are two absolute masterpieces on it; this is the one sometimes overlooked.


Beatles “I'm a Loser”
from For Sale (CAPITOL 1964) —In glorious mono - thanks always to Lindsay.


Crowded House “Falling Dove”
from Intriguer CD Album (Fantasy 2010) N  —Includes a Liam Finn guitar freak-out, patent pending.


Sarah Blasko “Down On Love”
from As Day Follows Night (Dramatico 2010) N  —Produced by Bjorn without Peter or John.


Joni Mitchell “For Free”
from Ladies of the Canyon CD Album (Unknown 1970) —I don't really think all street musicians are as good as the pros out there, but it's a nice romantic thought that they could be. Again, thanks to Said for the inspiration - Facebook is so cool.


Patty Griffin “I Smell a Rat”
from Downtown Church CD Album (CMG 2010) N  —I thought last week's True Blood was pretty weak, but I was certainly pleased to hear this song at the end.


Tom Jones “Lord Help”
from Praise & Blame (Lost Highway www.losthighwayrecords.com 2010) N  —I just can't get enough of this record - Jones has never sang with such restraint and consequent power.


Fitz & the Tantrums “MoneyGrabber”
from Pickin' Up the Pieces (Dangerbird 2010) N  —Excellent new 60s soulish record.


Marvin Gaye “Trouble Man” Single (Motown 1972) —Spectacular Marvin!


Steely Dan “My Old School”
from Countdown to Ecstasy (MCA 1973) —My old friend Keith suggested this as a song that has an amazing amount of cowbell in it.


Tim Finn “Spiritual Hunger”
from Big Canoe (Virgin 1986) —Very 80s production, but Finn makes it work - and throws in a cowbell on the bridge.


Richard Thompson “Crimescene”
from Dream Attic (Shout Factory www.shoutfactory.com 2010) N  —Finally in stores this coming Tuesday - it lives up to the wait.


Punch Brothers “You Are”
from Antifogmatic (Nonesuch 2010) N  —I think this one will be in my fave albums at the end of the year.


Jorma Kaukonen “Hamar Promenade”
from Quah (RCA Records 1974) —Though it seems so obviously like a record I should have loved for years, I only heard this for the first time five days ago.


John Mellencamp “Save Some Time to Dream”
from No Better Than This CD Album (Rounder www.rounder.com 2010) N  —T Bone Burnett's production style is different in mono - interesting little record, I need to hear more of it.


Linda Ronstadt “You're No Good”
from Greatest Hits Vol. 1 (Asylum 1976) —Guitarist Kenny Edwards played on and helped shape this cut. He passed away a few days ago.


Macy Gray “The Sellout” CD Album (Universal/Concord 2010) N  —Still loving this new record which fulfills all the promise she's had for years.


Cannibal And The Headhunters “Land of 1000 Dances (Naa, Na, Na, Na, Naa)”
from I Love Rock n Roll Vol 14 (Collectables 2004) —I just found out Richard "Scar" Lopez of this band passed away at the end of July.


Paul Collins “Don't Blame Your Troubles On Me”
from King of Power Pop (Alive Natural Sound www.alive-energy.com 2010) N  —A short and rockin' number from a guy who's been coming up with catchy songs for over 30 years now.


Little Big Town “Little White Church”
from The Reason Why (CAPITOL NASHVILLE 2010) N  —Sparkling new single from this sparkling contemporary country band.


Hank Williams “Move It On Over”
from 40 Greatest Hits (Mercury 1978) —Somebody other than Hank was singing this at the beginning of the latest episode of "Memphis Beat," and it made me want to hear the original.


Cyndi Lauper “Don't Cry No More”
from Memphis Blues (Mercer Street 2010) N  —Cyndi sounds like she's snuck into Bobby Blue Bland's recording session back in 1959.


Aretha Franklin “Ain't No Way”
from Lady Soul (Atlantic. Written by Walter Davis in the 40s, covered by Ray in the 50s, perfected by the Queen of Soul in the 60s. unk 1968) —Al Becker, host of Voices in the Dark every Sunday night here on KDHX, says this is his fave Aretha song. Can't argue with that.


Stevie Wonder “Summer Soft”
from Songs In The Key Of Life CD Album (Universal/Motown 1976) —I've been reminded of so many great songs just by scrolling through my Facebook wall - but I can't remember who posted this one the other day. Whoever it was, thanks a bunch!


Betty Davis “They Say I'm Different” (Light In The Attic Records 2007) —This one was posted by former KDHX DJ Rene Saller, and it's a corker of a great song.


Jimmy Smith “Funky Broadway”
from Respect (Verve www.vervemusicgroup.com 1967) —I'm not sure who the guitarist is on this cut, but he's got a nice feel here.


Piano Red “Ain't Gonna Be Your Lowdown Dog No More”
from The Lost Atlanta Tapes (Landslide 2010) N  —Read my review of this album here: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdrevie2/fr/Piano-Red-The-Lost-Atlanta-Tapes-2010.htm


Clyde McPhatter “I Told Myself a Lie”
from Lover Please: The Complete MGM and Mercury Singles (Universal 2010) N  —I don't think I even knew McPhatter made all these records after he left Atlantic - very nice new compilation of rarities.


William Bell “You Don't Miss Your Water”
from Stax 50 - A 50th Anniversary Celebration (stax 2007) —This one breaks my heart every time I hear it.


Marshall Crenshaw “Mary Anne”
from Marshall Crenshaw (Warner Bros. 1982) —Master of melodic hooks!


Raul Malo “Saint Behind the Glass”
from Sinners & Saints (Fantasy 2010) N  —Brilliant cover of the Los Lobos classic.


Alejandro Escovedo “Street Songs”
from Street Songs of Love CD Album (Fantasy 2009) N  —I'm not overly enamored with the line-up at LouFest this weekend, but you can't argue with Alejandro being on the bill (or, for that matter, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Adam Reichman, and the Bottle Rockets).
