Time zone: central


Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes “Trapped Again”
from Havin' a Party with Southside Johnny (Epic 1979) —Springsteen was so deep in the zone back in the late 70s that he could toss bones as great as this song to his old friends.


The Rolling Stones “When You're Gone”
from Some Girls (Disc 2) (Universal 2011) —There are some great songs on the bonus disc of this record - this is old school Stones blues.


Paul McCartney “Appreciate”
from New (Hear Music 2013) N  —The hype on this one almost made me resist the lure here - I mean, Macca has made some good records in recent years, so why does this one get all the acclaim? But, a few listens, and I'm sucked in nicely to a strong collection of pop songs.


The Clash “Rudie Can't Fail”
from London Calling CD Album (Epic) —Let us sing the praises of Topper Headon on drums - this is some cool rhythm work!


X “In This House That I Call Home”
from Wild Gift CD Album (Rhino/Slash 1981) —There was a time when I thought these guys were the coolest folks in the world. Still love 'em.


Vampire Weekend “Step”
from Modern Vampires of the City (XL Recordings 2013) N  —Every time I see you in the world you always step to my girl. That's a recipe for trouble right there.


Cass McCombs “There Can Be Only One”
from Big Wheel and Others (Domino 2013) N  —Sometimes this guy reminds me a little of Lloyd Cole. Sometimes of Lou Reed.


Arctic Monkeys “I Wanna Be Yours”
from AM (Domino 2013) N  —They do a pretty mean brooding ballad.


David Bowie “Where Are We Now?”
from The Next Day (ISO / Columbia 2013) N  —They've just issued this in an even more deluxe version than the original deluxe version. Now there's a whole 'nother disc - me, I still stick to the original album, which is really nice.


Over the Rhine “It Makes No Difference”
from Meet Me At The Edge Of The World (GSD 2013) N  —Quite beautiful and original take on the Band classic.


Steve Martin & Edie Brickell “When You Get to Asheville”
from Love Has Come For You (Rounder www.rounder.com 2013) —This song haunts me - the modern world take on keeping in touch and holding on to lost possibilities.


Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison “9,999,999 Tears”
from Cheater's Game (Premium/Thirty Tigers 2013) —Another tale of woe and loss, achingly beautiful.


Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale “Vampire Girl”
from Buddy Jim (New West 2012) —This seems to be about setting yourself up for a fall over and over again.


Maria Muldaur “I Never Did Sing You a Love Song”
from Maria Muldaur (Warner Brothers 1974) —She did get the best players for her debut solo record - Dr. John, Ry Cooder, Clarence White, many more.


Wynonie Harris “Keep On Churnin'”
from Bloodshot Eyes (Rhino 1993) —It's amazing that he could sing this kind of stuff with a straight face. But I'm always glad he did.


Tab Smith “Don't Take Your Love For Me”
from Top 'n' Bottom (Delmark 1997) —Just stunningly sweet alto sax.


Ella Mae Morse “Buzz Me”
from Capitol Collectors Series (CAPITOL 1992) —One of the very finest big band singers of the 40s.


Dinah Washington “September in the Rain”
from What a Difference a Day Makes (Mercury 1959) —One of the very finest singers ever.


Big Bill Broonzy “Mississippi River Blues”
from I Can't Be Satisfied (TKO) —Mississippi River is so deep and wide, I can see my good gal standin' on the other side.


Dave Van Ronk “John Henry”
from Down in Washington Square: The Smithsonian Folkways Collection (Smithsonian Folkways 2013) N  —Somehow I've never really listened to Dave Van Ronk, but this collection is starting to rectify that oversight.


Clifton Chenier “I'm On the Wonder”
from The Best of Clifton Chenier (Arhoolie 2003) —Man, this guy was so great!


Aaron Neville “My True Story” (Blue Note 2013) N  —Not as perfect as his gospel record a couple years ago, it's still really nice to hear Aaron singing stuff he loves.


Marvin Gaye “Stepping Closer to Your Heart”

Bobby "Blue" Bland “That's the Way Love Is”
from Greatest Hits Vol. 1: The Duke Recordings (MCA 1998) —I swear, these masterpieces Bland made in the 50s deserve even more praise than they've already gotten - as perfect as records get.


The Gladiators “Cheater”
from Symbol of Reality (nighthawk 1982) —Some of the finest reggae ever - love the weird sound on this one, and I love Albert Griffith's urgent vocal.


The Supremes “Where Did Our Love Go” (Motown 1964) —Whenever I play a song like this on the radio, I think there may be somebody out there hearing it for the first time, and that is a great gift.


The Animals “She'll Return It”
from The Singles Plus (EMI 1994) —I pretty much love everything from these guys.


The Turtles “Almost There”
from Solid Zince: The Turtles Anthology (Rhino 2002) —As rocking as these guys got!


The Youngbloods “One Note Man”
from The Youngbloods (RCA Victor 1967) —If there was ever a 60s band ripe for rediscovery. Nobody gives these guys enough credit.

from Electric (New West 2013) N  —One of the best songs to come out this year.
