Time zone: central


The Smiths “Still Ill”
from Hatful Of Hollow (Rhino 1984) —Ask me why and I'll spit in your eye.


Robyn Hitchcock “Unsettled”
from Globe of Frogs (A&M 1988) —Between Morrissey & Hitchcock, that's a whole lot of clever right at the top of the morning.


The Clash “Hateful”
from London Calling CD Album (Epic) —Anything I want, he gives it to me / Anything I want, he gives it but not for free.


New York Dolls “Dancing on the Lips of a Volcano”
from One Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This (Roadrunner 2006) —The reunion records were pretty good, but they sure didn't sell. Maybe these can become cult records in a few years just like the original records did.


The Kinks “Mirror of Love”
from BBC Sessions 1964-1977 (Sanctuary 2001) —A cool live version, with horns & piano, of the Preservation song.


The Who “Pinball Wizard”
from Tommy (MCA 1969) —The song that taught me how to use a suspended fourth. At least, that's what I think that chord was. It's been a long time since I played guitar.


Southside Johnny and the Poor Fools “Gone Underground”
from Songs From the Barn (Leroy unk 2013) N  —Crusty old veteran wears his heart on his sleeve, just as he always did. Great to have Southside back this year.


Big Star “Gone With the Light”
from Keep an Eye On the Sky CD Album (Rhino 2009) —One of many cuts that make the box set so darn essential.


Television “Little Johnny Jewel (Pts. 1 & 2)”
from Marquee Moon (bonus tracks) (Rhino 2007) —The single that astonished . . . well, the people in New York who knew about them already, and a few critics around the world.


13th Floor Elevators “Fire Engine”
from The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators (International Artists 1966) —This is a song Television used to cover. My goodness, it's amazing!


The Velvet Underground “I Can't Stand It”
from VU (Polydor 1985) —Another fave from Lou Reed.


The Radiators From Space “Television Screen”
from Irish A-Z of Rock (Solid Discs 1992) —Early Irish punk rock going four miles per minute.


Dick Dale “Hava Nagila”
from Better Shred Than Dead: The Dick Dale Anthology (Rhino 1997) —Dick Dale. Hava Hagila. 'Nuff said.


Bobby Fuller Four “Miserlou (live)”
from Cowabunga! The Surf Box (Rhino 1996) —A rip roaring cover of the Dick Dale classic!


Marvin Gaye “You're a Wonderful One”
from How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You (Tamla 1965) —Don't forget the big tribute concert benefit for KDHX tonight at Off Broadway. 9 local bands pay tribute to the great Marvin Gaye. Maybe someone will play this one.


Marvin Gaye “I Want You” (Motown 1976) —One of the many masterpieces Marvin Gaye put out in the 70s.


Ransom Note “Georgia”
from Big Soul (Tower Groove Records 2013) N L —Excellent St. Louis band that will be part of the tribute tonight.


Valerie June “Pushin' Against a Stone” (Concord 2013) N  —I gotta admit, I love the sound of Dan Auerbach's guitar on this cut.


Booker T. Jones “Fun”
from Sound The Alarm (stax 2013) N  —The closest Booker T. comes on the new record to reminding us of the Stax glory days.


The Bar-Kays “Hit and Run”
from Phat Trax: The Best of Old School Vol. 1 (Rhino 1995) —I simply cannot resist the funk of the very early 80s. It only had a short life, but man, it was fun.


Orlando Julius Ekemode “Alo Mi Alo”
from Afro Hi Life Classics, Vol. 2 (Orlando Julius Afro House of High Life 2013) —This is actually halfway between hi life and Afro-beat. Very cool stuff from Nigeria in the 70s.


Henry Butler “Mama Roux”
from Treme Music From the HBO Original Series, Season 2 (Rounder www.rounder.com 2012) —This dude is so great a piano player that I often forget he can really sing, too.


Van Morrison “Enlightenment” (Polydor 1990) —The Van Morrison of this period was just coasting, searching for his next revelation, which was a couple years away, but I still love this song about searching for the meaning of life.


Gregory Porter “I Fall In Love Too Easily”
from Liquid Spirit (Blue Note 2013) N  —The most exciting male jazz vocalist to come along in ages.


Hot Lips Page “Long Gone Blues”
from Jump For Joy! (Sony 2001) —Billie Holiday didn't sing a lot of blues, but this is a good one, and Page on trumpet shines.


Charles Brown “Black Night”
from Driftin' Blues: The Best Of Charles Brown (EMI 1992) —One of the cornerstones of urban blues, smooth division.


Lowell Fulson “Mean Woman Blues”
from The Bob Geddins Blues Legacy (JSP 2009) —Such a mean woman - she won't cook him no breakfast or wash him no clothes.


Muddy Waters “Screamin' and Cryin'”
from Rollin' Stone (Chess 2000) —Oh, jeez, that opening slide guitar note sends chills up and down my spine every time.


Ramblin' Jack Elliott “How Long Blues”
from A Stranger Here (Anti- 2009) —I love the bluesy accordion in this track - I really should listen to older Elliott stuff some time, too. So dang much to hear in this world.

from Still Green (Signature Sounds www.signaturesounds.com 2013) N  —I can't resist a groove like this one.


Kacey Musgraves “Dandelion”
from Same Trailer Different Park (Mercury 2013) N  —Sweet little country melody.


John Prine “The Other Side of Town”
from Fair & Square (Oh Boy Recordsa 2006) —John Prine is always welcome in my world.


Neko Case “Bought and Sold”
from Furnace Room Lullaby (Bloodshot / Mint 2000) —Back when Neko was country.


Laura Veirs “Sadako Folding Cranes”
from Warp and Weft (Raven Marching Band 2013) N  —Beautiful and mysterious tune.


Tom Waits “The Part You Throw Away”
from Blood Money (Anti- 2002) —I've enjoyed rediscovering Tom Waits over the last year or so - I mean, I hadn't forgotten him, but I realized he didn't stop being great 25 years ago.


Joan Armatrading “Heaven”
from Gold (A&M 2005) —As I recall, this was the b-side of a failed single released for her first greatest hits album, Track Record. Great song, though.


Beach Day “We've Gotta Go”
from Trip Trap Attack (Kanine 2013) N  —I have to thank Rich Reese for a) being cool and b) telling me I should check these guys out.


Ivan & Alyosha “The Fold”
from All the Times We Had (Dualtone 2013) —My kind of majestic power rock.


Cave States “One Left To Be the Same”
from The Great Divide (Undertow 2013) N L —Whoever decided Danny Kathriner and Chris Grabau should form a band together is a genius.


The Carper Family “Loving Me Like You Do”
