Joe Simon “Drowning in the Sea of Love”
from Drowning In the Sea of Love (Ace Records 1972) —Another song written and produced by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff with strings by Thom Bell. Country soul meets Philly soul with great results.
Ann Sexton “It's All Over But The Shouting”
from Anthology (Soul Brother Records 2004) —1973 cover version of the Gladys Knight and the Pips song recorded for the Nashville-based Seventy Seven label.
Cassandra Wilson “Wouldn't It Be Loverly”
from Loverly (Blue Note 2008) —Written by Lerner & Loewe and recorded in 2007. Two really interesting jazz interpretations of screen & stage standards.
Sam Cooke “You Gotta Move”
from Night Beat MP3/file Album (RCA Victor 1963) —Written by Sam Cooke and recorded in 1963. Lots of great session musicians on here. This track has Hal Blaine on drums, Billy Preston on organ & long-time Sam Cooke guitarist Clif White on guitar, among others.
Adam Reichmann “Without A Reply”
from Another Version of the Same Story (Perdition 2004) L —Adam Reichmann will be appearing tonight (Thursday 8/19). The show begins at 8:30 where Adam will be doing a solo set followed by a performance with his new band, Ghosts of Electricity.
Mick Taylor “Slow Blues”
from Mick Taylor (Columbia 1979) —Mick Taylor instrumental from 1979. This one went out to my brother whose love for this album goes way back.
Sam Phillips “Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us”
from Don't Do Anything (Nonesuch 2008) —2008 ode to Sister Rosetta Tharpe. I suspect lots more people heard the cover version by Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, though.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
