Time zone: central


Seal & Jeff Beck “Like a Rolling Stone”
from Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan (Amnesty International 2012) N  —An inspired match of vocalist, guitarist, and song.


Bob Delevante “Like a Meadowlark Blues”
from Columbus and the Colossal Mistake (Relay 2005) —Talented songwriter with Buddy Miller playing guitar - yep, that works.


Neil Young & Crazy Horse “Travel On”
from Americana (Reprise 2012) N  —It's brilliant. It's stupid. It actually rocks.


Slade “My Town”
from Old New Borrowed & Blue (Polygram 1974) —Somebody sold us pert near the whole Slade catalogue at the record store, so we've listened to a lot of Slade the past few weeks. Man, those guys were working class rock geniuses.


Spoon “Sister Jack”
from Gimme Fiction (Merge 2005) —I don't love Spoon the way some friends of mine do, but I know a great pop song when I hear one, and this is one of those.


A Band of Bees “Hourglass”
from Free the Bees (EMI 2004) —I don't know how I missed these guys until recently, but I'm slowly catching on - this is as strong a rock/pop outfit as the millenium has produced.


Elvis Costello “45”
from When I Was Cruel CD Album (Island Def Jam 2002) —Ten years have passed since this record came out - how did that happen?


Eleni Mandell “Needle and Thread”
from Artificial Fire (Zedtone 2009) —I know she has a new album out, but this song from her previous record just called to me the other day.


Susanna Hoffs “November Sun”
from Someday (Baroque Folk 2012) N  —The label name includes the watchword for this record - baroque. I'd say baroque pop, not folk. Gorgeous.


Lesley Gore “You Don't Own Me”
from It's My Party: The Mercury Anthology (Island Def Jam 1968) —As powerful a feminist anthem as you'll find.


Love “You I'll Be Following”
from Love (Elektra 1966) —He doesn't mean on Twitter.


Derek “Cinammon”
from Classic Rock: 1968 - Blowin' Your Mind (Time Life 1991) —Tastes good.


Rufus Wainwright “Rashida”
from Out of the Game (Decca 2012) N  —Rufus doesn't break new ground on this record, but he refines all the majestic elements that made me love him in the first place.


Fiona Apple “Extraordinary Machine” (Epic 2005) —Another case where the previous album has a song calling me while the new album sits on the shelf. Nothing wrong with the new one, but this one is so good.


Richard Thompson “One Door Opens”
from Live at the BBC (Universal 2011) —Great live solo version of a song that was relatively new in 2004 when he went on the BBC for this performance.


The Vertigo Swirl “Eulplonn Sunrise”
from Swirl 3 (Rubberstamp 2011) L —Brian Marek writes great songs.


The Gourds “Cracklins”
from Blood of the Ram (Eleven Thirty 2004) —I just dig the two-step groove of this one.


Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials “Moratorium on Hate”
from Jump Start (Alligator 2012) N  —At first, I thought the idea of declaring a moratorium on hate was just silly pie-in-the-sky thinking, but damned if Lil' Ed doesn't convince me through this powerful driving song that at least it's worth a shot.


Pelvic Girdles “Tweet”
from Sad Hammer (self 2011) L —Hey, maybe this one's about Twitter. Probably not, knowing Curt Hendricks as I do.


Redd Kross “Researching the Blues” (Merge 2012) —This isn't as great as classic Redd Kross was, but it's still pretty nice to have something even in the ballpark.


Dwight Twilley Band “Rock and Roll 47”
from twilley don't mind (THE RIGHT STUFF 1977) —This level of pop/rock brilliance is impossible to resist.


Thin Lizzy “Wild One”
from Dedication: The Very Best Of Thin Lizzy (Mercury 1991) —And opening riffs don't entice much better than this one.


Paul Weller “When Your Garden's Overgrown”
from Sonik Kicks (Island 2012) N  —Weller can still knock out some pretty strong songs.


The Frost “Black As Night”
from Best of the Frost (Vanguard www.vanguardrecords.com 2003) —Of course this could only have come from Detroit in 1970.


Paul McCartney “Eat At Home”
from Ram (Apple 1971) —So many great songs on Ram.


The Clash “Train In Vain”
from London Calling CD Album (Epic) —I remember my confusion when this track wasn't listed on the album jacket - I don't think I'd ever seen a bonus cut before, and the title was etched into the groove between the end of the song and the label.


Carolina Chocolate Drops “Political World”
from Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan (Amnesty International 2012) N  —Great cover of a song I always liked from the album Infidels.


Los Straitjackets “Bobsleddin'”
from Jet Set (Yep Roc 2012) N  —Yep, it rocks.


Booker T. & The MG's “Sunny”
from Hip Hug-Her (Rhino/Elektra 1967) —Steve Cropper is incredible here.


The Viceroys “Yayo”
from The Viceroys at Studio One: Ya Ho (Heartbeat * 1995) —16 men and a deadman's chest.


Burning Spear “Tradition”
from Marcus Garvey (Mango 1975) —A reggae masterpiece - every song on this record is great.


Bettye Swann “You Gave Me Love”
from The Money Recordings (Kent 2001) —One of the least heralded but sweetest of the many Bettys who made soul records in the 60s.


James Carr “Pouring Water on a Drowning Man”
from The Essential James Carr (Razor & Tie www.razorandtie.com 1995) —Another soul singer who could do no wrong, but isn't as famous as he should be.


Major Lance “Get My Hat (Nothing Can Stop Me)”
from Everybody Loves a Good Time! The Best of Major Lance (Epic 1995) —Curtis Mayfield wrote so many brilliant songs he could farm many of them off to other talented singers. Major Lance was one of his finest interpreters.


Buddy Guy “Mother-In-Law Blues”
from I Left My Blues in San Francisco (Chess 1967) —Buddy Guy tells of woes most of us never have.


Robert Cray Band “A Memo”
from Nothin' But Love (Provogue 2012) N  —This is my fave Robert Cray record in a long time.


Cassandra Wilson “Red Guitar”
from Another Country (EOne 2012) N  —Fabrizio Sotti is the guitarist and collaborator with Wilson all over this record - they blend beautifully on this cut.


John Scofield “Simply Put”
from A Moment's Peace (Decca 2011) —Stunning and quietly exquisite.


Jerry Douglas “Gone to Fortingal”
from Traveler (EOne 2012) N  —You take Jerry Douglas on dobro and Bela Fleck on banjo and all sorts of other great players and give them an entrancing Celtic/Indian crossover tune, you've got something great.


John Prine “The Great Compromise”
from Diamonds in the Rough (Atlantic unk 1972) —Much to my surprise when I opened my eyes I was a victim of the great compromise.


The Wandering “Sentimental Blues”
from Go On Now, You Can't Stay Here: Mississippi Folk Music, Vol. 3 (Songs of the South www.nmallstars.com/ 2012) N  —Amy Lavere sings a nice little ditty here.
