Time zone: central
Amy LaVere “This World Is Not My Home” (Archer 2005) —Crying way down deep in her beer.
Shawn Colvin “The Neon Light of The Saints”
from All Fall Down (Nonesuch www.nonesuch.com 2012) N —I haven't paid much attention to Colvin for a couple decades and change, but when you get Buddy Miller and Bill Frisell to play guitar for you, I'll listen. Good record.
Rhett Miller “Lost Without You”
from The Dreamer (Maximum Sunshine 2012) N —I can't figure out why I like Rhett Miller solo records but don't like the Old 97s, especially since this new solo record kinda sounds like the Old 97s.
Dan Bern “The Golden Voice of Vin Scully”
from Drifter (self Self 2012) N —I always like Dan Bern, and this new album is on the shelves with a song referencing the greatest living baseball announcer. Of course I'm playing it for you.
Albert King “Don't Burn Down the Bridge ('Cause You Might Wanna Come Back Across)”
from I'll Play the Blues for You (stax 1972) N —From the nifty expanded edition of the 1972 classic (though this isn't a bonus track, just part of the original album).
Dolly Varden “The Truth Is Told”
from The Panic Bell (Undertow 2007) —From time to time, I've actually been reading Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens (I keep getting distracted, but I love it when I get into it). Anyway, Dolly Varden is a character in the book - that's where they got the name.
That Petrol Emotion “It's a Good Thing”
from Manic Pop Thrill (Diablo 1986) —I didn't understand this music when it was new - I don't know why, since it was by the Undertones without Feargal Sharkey. Any way, better late than never, right?
Sister Rosetta Tharpe “I Shall Know Him”
from Gospel Train (Verve 1962) —She's such a great guitarist she doesn't get enough credit for singing so incredibly well. Just listen to this one - damn!
The Vondrukes “DTV”
from Runaway, Goodbye Love (self-released 2011) L —I could really relate to this song after having troubles with DirecTV last week. Jeff Griswold of the band made me a special radio edit just so I could share the feeling with you in song.
Cheap Trick “Come On, Come On”
from In Color (Epic 1978) —I remember when my friends and I touted these guys as the best band in America.
The Bridge “Geraldine”
from National Bohemian (Woodberry 2011) —Steve Berlin produced this album by a jam band, and reigned them in, reminding them that good songs are important, too.
Freddie Hubbard “Hub's Nub”
from Open Sesame (Blue Note 1960) —From Hubbard's first album as leader, with Tina Brooks on sax, McCoy Tyner on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Clifford Jarvis on drums.
Alabama Shakes “Hang Loose”
from Boys & Girls (ATO 2012) N —That insistent guitar figure kicks me hard, and what's-her-name belts it out nicely.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
