Jeff Beck “Corpus Christi Carol”
from Emotion & Commotion (ATCO 2010) N —Hey, if Jeff Beck can open his record with a beautiful little piece like this, I can open my show with it.
CHARLIEMUSSELWHITE “Sad and Beautiful World”
from THE WELL (Alligator 2010) N —Sweet swinging blues with co-vocal by the great Mavis Staples - her new album comes out Tuesday, and I'd play it but I can't find where I put it.
Otis Rush “Reap What You Sow”
from Mourning in the Morning (Cotillion 1969) —Otis Rush went down to Muscle Shoals (in the days when young Duane Allman was there) and recorded this wondrous record. This song burns.
John Wesley Harding “When the Sun Comes Out”
from Here Comes the Groom (sire 1989) —Since I don't have and haven't yet heard his new one, I thought I'd go back 21 years for the record that made me realize his major talent.
Booker T “Hey Ya”
from Potato Hole (Anti 2009) —I admit it - I heard John Wendland play this yesterday, and I said to myself, "Self, this is a cowbell classic."
Lone Justice “Ways To Be Wicked”
from Lone Justice (Geffen 1985) —These guys had the hype, these guys had the heart, these guys had the songs. I don't know why they didn't climb the charts with this brilliant Tom Petty song.
Thin White Rope “Not Your Fault”
from Moonhead (Frontier 1987) —One of the greatest bands of the 1980s - I saw them live a few times, and I'm still thrilled.
Heart “Red Velvet Car” (Eagle 2010) N —A stunningly lovely song from the Wilson sisters.
Undertones “Teenage Kicks”
from The Undertones (Rykodisc) —Here's a classic radio conundrum - knowing that the majority of my listeners have probably never heard the Undertones at all, I offer their greatest song, thus preventing me from playing the other great ones they have, not yet heard by fans of this one.
XTC “Real By Reel”
from Drums & Wires (Virgin 1979) —On the other hand, here's a great XTC song that's a little bit deeper catalog than just going for the biggest hits of an unjustly obscure band.
Miles Davis “Filles de Kilimanjaro” (Columbia 1968) —Magnificent cut from the last album by Miles' classic 2nd quartet of Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams.
Emmylou Harris “Here I Am”
from Stumble Into Grace (Nonesuch 2003) —Hard to believe it's been 7 years since this one came out - harder to believe she's only released one solo album since this one.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
