7:04am

Dave Alvin “What's Up With Your Brother”
from Eleven Eleven (Yep Roc 2011) —It's hard being so talented and having a brother who's just as talented in a different way.

7:09am

Muddy Waters “Where's My Woman Been”

7:15am

from With a Bang! (Blind Eyes 2011) L —Rock!

7:18am

Earth Quake “Friday on My Mind”
from Home of the Hits The Beserkley Story (Sanctuary 2000) —I think I heard this version before I heard the Easybeats original. So this goes out to the djs of KWUR back in 1978.

7:22am

The Feelies “Raised Eyebrows”
from Crazy Rhythms (A&M 1980) —This is one of the craziest of rhythms - just try to dance to what thie drums are doing.

7:25am

Chuck Prophet “White Night, Big City”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) N  —So many things to love about this song (and this album). But I'm particularly enamored of the Television styled background vocals here.

7:31am

Richard Thompson “I Misunderstood”
from Rumour and Sigh (CAPITOL 1991) —How can this record be 21 years old already? I still think of it as recent.

7:35am

Elvis Costello “Out of Time”
from The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook (Universal unk 2012) N  —Really great cover of the Rolling Stones classic - of course he makes it sound as if he owns it.

7:40am

Bruce Springsteen “County Fair”
from The Essential Bruce Springsteen (Columbia 2003) —I forget the details, but I'm pretty sure this was recorded back in the River or Nebraska time frame. At any rate, it's a nice song to have been resurrected.

7:47am

Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost “Billy Brown”
from Born There (Big Muddy www.bigmuddyrecords.com 2012) N L —LP release party will be this Sunday night at Off Broadway. Free show, with Magic City & the Trio Project.

7:52am

Dr. John “My Children, My Angels”
from Locked Down (Nonesuch 2012) N  —It never occurred to me that Dan Auerbach could actually turn out to have talent, but his guitar playing works just fine on this excellent new record from the great Doctor!

8:04am

The Mastersons “You Don't Know”
from Birds Fly South (New West www.newwestrecords.com 2012) N  —This record is sneaking up on me - the more I hear it at work, the more I realize this just might be really, really good.

8:08am

Bonnie Raitt “God Only Knows”
from Slipstream (Redwing Records 2012) N  —Gorgeous version of the Joe Henry song, not the Beach Boys one.

8:12am

The Little Willies “Jolene”
from For the Good Times (Milking Bull 2012) N  —Good enough version to stand next to the original - Norah Jones doesn't get enough credit for her enormous talents.

Dionne Warwick “Move Me No Mountain”

8:49am

Richie Ray “Nitty Gritty”
from Latin Hot (Smoking Salsa & Sizzling Grooves) (Metro) —From the salsa world, a killer r'n'b romp through this number, with just a taste of Latin spice in the horns and the rhythms.

8:52am

Ray B Anthony “Alice Blue Gown”
from internet (Sun 1957) —A rare rockabilly cut from the Sun label - very nice.

8:54am

from Who's Feeling Young Now? (Nonesuch 2012) N  —I know I've heard Radiohead's original of this, but I never paid attention after OK Computer. I do know that this is an amazing track, though.

9:21am

Dr. Dog “Lonesome”
from Be the Void (Deluxe Edition) (Anti / Epitaph 2012) N R  —Great way to open up an album, with a song that catches you by surprise if you've heard them before, yet prepares you for eleven more catchy numbers.
