Bob Reuter “I Don't Think I Can Fly”
from Production Masters 7-18-00 (Unreleased 2000) L —This one goes out in memory of Bob Reuter. Bob gave me a CD with seven songs on it with the only identifier being "Production Masters 7-18-00." This one captures him in a really vulnerable & beautiful light.
Quantic & Alice Russell with The Combo Bárbaro “I'd Cry (7" edit)”
from I'd Cry (7" edit)/Here Again (EMI Label Services 2013) N —Besides being a great track, this tear-shaped piece of light blue vinyl is about as cool a single as I've ever seen. Alice Russell backed by this latin-soul outfit works so well.
Honey Ltd. “Louie, Louie”
from The Complete LHI Recordings (Light In The Attic 2013) N —New compilation including the Detroit quartet's 1968 album produced by Lee Hazlewood plus two singles tracks and three previously unreleased tracks. - This 1968 Richard Berry song was arranged by Jack Nitzsche with backing by the Wrecking Crew.

Darrell Banks “No One Blinder (Than a Man Who Won't See)”
from I'm The One Who Loves You (Ace 2013) N —New compilation featuring all of the Detroit soul singer's 1969 Stax-Volt album plus eight bonus tracks - most of them previously unreleased. This track was written by Don Davis and Herbert Ross.
Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost “She Brought Me To The Wire”
from Dana Dew/She Brought Me To The Wire 45 (Big Muddy Records 2013) N L —RIP Bob Reuter. He was going stronger than ever at age 61. The influence he had on the St. Louis music and art scene through his songwriting, performing, photography, radio broadcasting, and writing is a tremendous loss.
