Cerrone “Love in C Minor”
from Disco Classics (Varese 2003) —Seriously, I am still amazed at how many people purport to hate disco. How can you hate something this full of life?
Billy Bragg “Swallow My Pride”
from Tooth & Nail (Cooking Vinyl 2013) N —I still haven't warmed up to this whole album, but this is a really pretty song that reminds me of Nick Lowe's recent work, albeit without as great a singer.
James Cotton “Cotton Mouth Man” (Alligator 2013) N —Cotton teams up with Joe Bonamassa for a scorcher here.
Kate & Anna McGarrigle “Excursion a Venise”
from The French Record (Hannibal 1980) —One of my all-time favorite records has only the occasional word I can understand. Wish I would have had this one when I was actually studying French.
Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians “Goodnight I Say”
from Fegmania! (Yep Roc 1984) —This was actually the first album with the Egyptians as his backing band. I'd forgotten that, probably because I didn't hear this one until after he'd done another one or two.
Johnny Marr “New Town Velocity”
from The Messenger (Sire Records 2013) N —Every time this song starts, I think it's going to be Ian Gomm, but, even though it never is, I'm still happy with it.
Big Star “Life Is White”
from Radio City (Ardent 1974) —There is a new documentary out on Big Star, and it's supposed to be exceptionally good.
