Time zone: central
Paul Kelly “Stealing In the Name of the Lord”
from Hot Runnin' Soul - The Singles 1965-71 (Kent 2012) —Written by Paul Kelly and recorded for the Happy Tiger label in 1970. He originally wrote the song with Sam & Dave in mind to record it but they turned it down. Some R&B stations shied away from this one for fear of losing sponsors.
The Poets of Rhythm “South Carolina”
from The Anthology 1992-2003 (Daptone 2013) N —You wouldn't think this soul and funk band were based out of Germany but that is, indeed, the case. Recorded in 1993 and found on this new compilation put out by Daptone. Pretty far removed from the New Wave and Synth Pop songs coming out then.
The Blasters “I'm Shakin'”
from Testament: The Complete Slash Recordings (1981-1985) (Rhino 2002) —1981 cover version of the Little Willie John recordng written by Rudy Toombs.
La Honda “Rich Man's Wine”
from I See Stars (La Honda Music Ltd 2013) N —From their forthcoming release. This band featured the vocals of Sarah Joyce (aka Rumer) and was recorded twelve years ago when she was just eighteen but never was released. The indie-pop/folk record is finally coming out soon.
Neko Case “Calling Cards”
from The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You (Anti- 2013) N —Written by Neko case and Paul Rigby with Kelly Hogan on backing vocals. - Neko Case will be at the Pageant this Sunday (10/20). Highly recommended.
X “The Have Nots”
from Under The Big Black Sun (Elektra 1982) —"At the Hi-D-Hi and the Hula Gal Beehive Bar and the Zircon Lounge G.G.'s Cozy Corner, The Gift of Love Stop 'N' Drink, Sit 'N' Sip, Rest 'N Pieces Dexter's New Approach and The Get Down Lounge The Aorta Bar, Detroit's Main Vein..."
