Richard Barone “Sweet Blue Cage”
from Cool Blue Halo 25th Anniversary Concert (RBM 2012) —A very rare case of the "reunion" being even better than the original. Mostly it's because Barone's voice has smoothed out and stretched in range with age, but there's also even better arrangements.
LaVern Baker “Saved” (Rhino 1960) —I used to smoke and drink and dance the hoochy-koo!
Bobby Purify “You Make Me Dig”
from Better to Have It (Proper Records 2005) —If Purify would have waited five years to put out this record, he might have been able to cash in on the whole retro-soul thing of the past few years.
N*E*R*D “Run to the Sun”
from In Search of ... (Virgin 2002) —You know, Pharell Williams didn't just wake up this year and start making great records.
Sherry Rich “41 Going on 17”
from Dakota Avenue (Vitamin 2012) —This Australian singer/songwriter is ridiculously good. We've got her CD at Euclid Records, and you really should buy it because you won't find it anywhere else.
Chuck Prophet “Willie Mays Is Up at Bat”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) —Chuck Prophet is at Off Broadway tomorrow, Aug. 17, with the Jans Project opening. I'll see you there.
Petula Clark “Every Word You Say”
from Lost In You (Sony 2013) N —I don't recognize the source of this song, but it's very compelling.
June Tabor “Roses of Picardy”
from Rosa Mundi (Topic 2001) —One of the greatest vocalists to come from the British folk tradition, though she's not one to stick to one kind of song.
