Time zone: central
Irma Thomas “Turn My World Around”
from In Between Tears (Fungus 1973) —Newly reissued album Thomas did with producer Swamp Dogg back in the early 70s. It's as good as that sounds.
Hot Chocolate “Don't Stop It Now”
from Their Greatest Hits (EMI 1993) —You probably only remember "You Sexy Thing" and "Everyone's a Winner," but these guys had a lot of cool songs. Great use of strings on this funky groove.
Tom Jones “Charlie Darwin”
from Spirit In the Room (Rounder www.rounder.com 2012) N —Jones does an exquisite take on a wonderful song by the Low Anthem - which reminds me, I guess I need to hear the Low Anthem one of these days, because I love this song.
Robben Ford “Fool's Paradise”
from Bringing It All Home (Provogue 2013) N —Everybody knows Ford is a hot-shot guitarist - what I hadn't realized is how good a singer he is. This is one fine jazz vocal.
Rosanne Cash “This World”
from Interiors (Columbia 1990) —So I'm on an Interiors kick. I can't help loving Rosanne Cash. This song, by the way, is devastating.
Amy LaVere “I'll Remember You”
from Anchors & Anvils (Archer 2007) —She'll be at the Duck Room as part of the band Motel Mirrors, next Thursday, June 6, the second night of Twangfest.
Meat Puppets “Down”
from Rat Farm (Megaforce 2013) N —Who would have predicted 30 years ago these guys would still be making good records after all this time?
Marathons “Peanut Butter”
from Chess Rhythm & Roll (Chess 1994) —There's a food going around that's a sticky, sticky goo / Well, it tastes real good but it's so hard to chew. Poetry, pure poetry.
Judith Hill “That Power”
from single (Unknown 2013) N —She was robbed on the Voice, being let go despite being a better singer than any of them, thus leading Adam Levine to mutter,"I hate this country," & fueling stupid indignation about that.
Ana Moura “Amor Afoito”
from Desfado (emarcy 2013) N —This Portuegese woman sings almost impossibly beautifully.
David Olney “JT's Escape”
from Through a Glass Darkly (Philo 1999) —Great song which was supposed to play while we were off the air, and yet only the last minute of it made it when we came back.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
