Time zone: central
Richard Thompson “Straight and Narrow”
from Electric (New West 2013) N —A terrific way to open the show, even if it was meant to be the second song I played this morning. My mind needs to sharpen up in the AM.
The Beatles “Happiness is a Warm Gun”
from The Beatles (Apple 2009) —She's well acquainted with the touch of a velvet hand like a lizard on the window pane.
Boz Scaggs “Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl”
from Memphis (429 Records 2013) N —One of two Mink DeVille covers by Mr. Scaggs on this new record.
Judith Hill “You've Got a Friend”
from single (Unknown 2013) N —This contestant on the Voice continues to blow me away week after week.
Slade “Forest Full of Needles”
from B-Sides (Salvo 2007) —There are more great songs on this two-disc collection of b-sides than many bands have put out in their careers.
Tim Lee 3 “Open the Door”
from Devil's Rope (Cool Dog Sound 2013) N —One of several absolutely first-rate songs on this new record. When are they gonna get up to St. Louis?
Johnny Marr “Lockdown”
from The Messenger (sire 2013) N —A new rock record that really sinks its teeth into creating big, memorable hooks.
Patty Griffin “Ohio”
from American Kid Single (New West 2013) N —The harmony worked out by Robert Plant on this song is exquisite - this is a true duet of two beautiful melodies working together.
Mark Knopfler “Gator Blood”
from Privateering (Mercury 2012) —Knopfler sounds on this song as if he's been listening to Bob Dylan's recent records really closely.
