Time zone: central
The Cramps “Strange Love”
from Flamejob (Creation 1994) —Nothing strange about this love. It's Ivy's perfectly poised guitar and Lux's sassy vocals.
Stevie Wonder “Gotta Have You”
from Jungle Fever (Motown 1991) —I'm not crazy enough to say this is as good as classic 70s stuff, but it's a pretty darn good song, and worth remembering now and again.
Swamp Dogg “Please Let Me Kiss You Goodbye”
from Gag a Maggott (Alive 1973) —It's certainly a pleasure to have these Swamp Dogg albums finally reissued and available.
Lou Rawls “Southside Blues / Tobacco Road”
from Live! (CAPITOL 1966) —Lou Rawls tells about the cold life in Chicago, and sings the heck out of Tobacco Road.
Natalie Maines “Come Cryin' to Me”
from Mother (Columbia 2013) N —A song co-written by Maines, Emily Robison, Gary Louris, and Marty Maguire, the latter of whom I don't know.
Richard Thompson “Sally B”
from Electric (New West 2013) N —I'm reasonably sure this isn't about that little bar that used to be in St. Charles where rock bands would play.
John Cale “The Soul of Carmen Miranda”
from Words For the Dying (Opal 1989) —Since the soul of Carmen Miranda had captured the mind of man - that's an opening line.
Middle Class Fashion “Come Around Anytime”
from Jungle (Blip Blap! 2013) N L —It seems as though just about everybody on the station is playing these guys, which I think is pretty cool.
Dan Bern “Seven Miles an Hour”
from Doubleheader (self 2012) —Dan Bern should have toured this album with the Baseball Project - that would have been a good doubleheader.
Jim Boggia “Made Me So Happy”
from Safe In Sound (Bluhammock Music 2005) —This guy had a way with power pop melodies that put him way beyond so many of those who try this genre. Whatever happened to him?
Chris Stamey “The Room Above the Bookstore”
from Lovesick Blues (Yep Roc 2013) N —It's a Leonard Cohen morning / We are sitting all alone / At a cafe in the corner / With espresso and a scone.
Hoyt Axton “Evangelina”
from Della and the Dealer (Unknown 2003) —I stumbled upon this CD last year, and there are great songs that I can't figure out when they were originally released.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
