Barbara & The Browns “If It's Good To You (It's Good For You)”
from Can't Find Happiness: The Sounds of Memphis Recordings (Kent 2007) —Written by Dan Greer and Stanley Carter and recorded in 1972 for the Sounds Of Memphis label.
Shirley Scott “Soul Shoutin'”
from The Very Best of Prestige Records (60th Anniversary) (Concord Records, Inc. 2009) —Music bed. 1963 soul jazz instrumental written by her husband, Stanley Turrentine
James Carr “Dark End Of The Street”
from You Got My Mind Messed Up (Kent 1966) —Reissue of his classic 1967 soul album plus twelve extra tracks. A must-have album, I think. As for this song, I'm not messing around, dammit. This is pledge drive. Written by Dan Penn and Chips Moman. One of the greatest soul recordings, ever.
Meshell Ndegeocello “Feeling Good”
from Pour Une Âme Souveraine: A Dedication to Nina Simone (Naive 2012) —Written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley and found on this album made up of all songs written or previously interpreted by Nina Simone.
Patty Griffin “Truth #2”
from Silver Bell (A&M 2013) N —Strange thinking of this as a new release when she recorded it circa 2000 but her record company chose not to release it. Well, this week it finally was officially released. Don't miss Patty Griffin w/ Scott Miller at the Pageant this Mon (10/14).
The Plugz “Hombre Secreto (Secret Agent Man)”
from Repo Man: Music From the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (MCA 1984) —Your basic Spanish version of Johnny River's "Secret Agent Man."
The Rumblers “Blockade aka That's It”
from Intoxica! Strange and Sleazy Instrumental Sounds from the SoCal Suburbs (Ace Records 2006) —Music bed.
The Pastel Six “Bandido”
from Intoxica! Strange And Sleazy Instrumental Sounds From the SoCal Suburbs (Ace Records 2006) —Music bed. 1962 Southern California garage rock instrumental. If they put out a box set of these guys, I'd buy it just for the music bed potential alone.
Bob Dylan “Most Of The Time (Alternate Version)”
from Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 8 - Rare and Unreleased 1989-2006 (Columbia 2008) —1989 alternate version recorded during the "Oh Mercy" sessions. Stripped down to just Bob Dylan on vocal, acoustic guitar, and harmonica.
