The Redwalls “Hung Up on the Way I'm Feeling”
from De Nova (CAPITOL 2005) —Wonder what these kids are up to now that they are in their late 20s. They were so very, very good before they were 21.
The Rascals “Love Me”
from Anthology (1965-1972) (Rhino 1992) —The Rascals got all funky at the end of their career. Overtly religious, too, but as long as the funk lives, that's okay.
The Temptations “Cloud Nine” (Motown 1969) —Sometimes I have to remind myself that brilliant songs I've heard a million times haven't been played nearly so often in recent years. New people need to hear this.
New Order “Regret”
from Republic (Qwest 1993) —I'm just a sucker for big open chord progressions like this one.
The Primitives “All the Way Down”
from Pure (RCA 1989) —Back in the day, I remember being disappointed in this album for not having another "Crash," but this song, with the boy vocals instead of the girl, is awfully cool.
Sneakers “I Will Understand”
from Racket (East Side Digital 1992) —Mitch Easter in an early band with Chris Stamey & Will Rigby. Some of you will understand how important that makes this.
Melody Den “Robert Johnson”
from Storylines (Perdition 2013) N L —CD Release party a week from Saturday, Jan. 12 at Off Broadway, along with the Half Knots. Should be a very good show.
Jon Cleary “Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky”
from Occapella! (FHQ 2012) —Great take on Allen Toussaint's credo.
Elvis Costello “Inch By Inch (demo)”
from Goodbye Cruel World (Rhino 2004) —It's amazing how much better this album could have been if the demo ideas had been followed rather than swallowed.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
