Time zone: central
Dion “Son of Skip James” (Verve Forecast 2007) —You know you're smiling in my face but you've got aces up your sleeve.
Van Morrison “Celtic New Year”
from Magic Time (Polydor 2005) —I could have picked a song from the new album, but I heard this one the other day, and it knocked me out so I figured I'd share it with you.
Beausoleil “Cubana Bayou”
from Cajunization (Rhino 1999) —A song which lives up to its title - Michael Doucet's fiddle playing is so incredible!
Irma Thomas “River Is Waiting”
from Simply Grand (Rounder 2008) —A brilliant interpretation of the John Fogerty song with piano help from the very talented Henry Butler.
The dB's “Write Back”
from Falling Off the Sky (Bar/None Records 2012) N —If you only go to one rock show this year, I think it should be the dB's at the Duck Room Nov. 17. The original line-up has never played St. Louis, and odds are they never will again. Do not miss this one.
Paul Simon “She Moves On”
from The Rhythm of the Saints (Warner Brothers) —This album confounded me when it was new - following up Graceland was just too formidable a task for anybody. But there are some very nice songs here, including this intoxicating gem.
Johnny Rawls “Soul Survivor” (Catfood 2012) N —Singing about keeping on the tradition, and doing it right.
