Time zone: central


Benny Goodman “Sing Sing Sing (With a Swing)”
from Jazz: A Film By Ken Burns (Columbia) —Goodman at the height of the mania he inspired, with Gene Krupa kicking ass!


The Isley Brothers “Twist and Shout”
from The Heart and Soul of Bert Berns (Universal 2002) —Shake it up, baby!


Little Milton “We're Gonna Make It”
from The Classic Rhythm & Blues Collection, Vol. 2 1964-1966 (Time Life 2001) —One of the most underrated blues singers and guitarists.


Alabama Shakes “Boys & Girls” (ATO www.atorecords.com 2012) —A particularly soulful ballad.


Rod Stewart “An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down”
from The Rod Stewart Album (Mercury 1969) —Man, those early Rod records just sound greater and greater as his newer stuff gets worse and worse.


Lucinda Williams “Big Red Sun Blues”
from Lucinda Williams (Koch 1988) —This album is about to be reissued - it's been out of print for ages, and it's the sweet spot of her career. She never made a record so perfectly expressive & melodically rich.


Steve Earle “Lonely Are the Free”
from I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive (New West 2011) —"Lonely are the free, there ain't that many of them."


Elvis Costello and the Roots “Refuse To Be Saved”
from Wise Up Ghost and Other Songs (Blue Note 2013) N  —That is one nasty rhythm track, Roots!


Ransom Note “I Spy”
from Big Soul (Tower Groove Records 2013) N L —Such a lovely song - Jon Parsons on keyboards is especially great here.


Neko Case “Bracing For Sunday”
from The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You (Anti- 2013) N  —So far this year, KDHX has played from this album four times, but only two songs. Interesting.


Nona Hendryx “We Can't Make It No More”
from Back to the Streets - Celebrating the Music of Don Covay (Shanachie 2006) —I will listen to Nona Hendryx sing anything she wants, but I hope I can be forgiven for hoping she does an album of this sort of thing one day. Wonderful soul singing on a classic song.


Martha Reeves & The Vandellas “What Am I Going To Do Without Your Love”
from Live Wire! The Singles 1962-1972 (Motown 1993) —A lesser known but terrific song from this great vocalist.


The Soul of John Black “High Power”
from A Sunshine State of Mind (Yellow Dog 2013) N  —This is a band, and there's nobody named John Black in it. But there is plenty of soul.


Memphis Minnie “Caught Me Wrong Again”
from Hoodoo Lady 1933-1937 (Columbia / Legacy 1991) —You caught me and my baby making friends. I guess that's what the kids called it back then.


Bob Dylan “All I Really Want to Do”
from Another Side of Bob Dylan (Columbia 1964) —I guess I've heard the Byrds version more often than Dylan's in recent years - I was caught by surprise at the sparseness of the original version.


Los Lobos “On a Night Like This”
from Masked and Anonymous (Music from the Motion Picture) (Columbia 2003) —What a great version of this song! I think I'll play some more Los Lobos.


Los Lobos “Billy 1”
from I'm Not There (Columbia 2007) —Here's Los Lobos on another Dylan song.


Los Lobos “Gotta Let You Know”
from Disconnected In New York City (Los Lobos Records 2013) N  —And Los Lobos doing one of their own songs.


The Skatalites “Green Island”
from Guns of Navarone: The Best of the Skatalites (Trojan trojanrecords.com 2003) —The Jamaicans loved those Italian film scores back in the day.


The T-Bones “Fever”
from No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In) (Collectables 1966) —Cool little instrumental rockin' version.


Paul Revere & The Raiders “Beatnick Sticks”
from The Legend of Paul Revere (Columbia 1991) —It's a rockin' version of "Chopsticks." Bet you wouldn't have thought of doing that.


Tim Easton “Knock Out Roses (For Levon)”
from Not Cool (Campfire Propaganda 2013) N  —A lovely instrumental. I bet Levon would have liked it.


House of Brunettes “Ain't Young Once Enough?”
from Life In Stereo (RittLaboratories 2013) N  —Killer band out of Chicago just released something like 5 CDs worth of music all at once. And it's really good.


Robert Pollard “Airs”
from Honey Locust Honky Tonk (Guided By Voices Inc. 2013) N  —I still haven't heard the album he did after this one, but this one still qualifies as new, too.


Brownsville Station “Let Your Yeah Be Yeah”
from Smokin' in the Boys Room: The Best of Brownsville Station (Rhino 1993) —A lesson in how to take a Jimmy Cliff song and make it a rock anthem.


The Who “Boris the Spider”
from A Quick One (Happy Jack) (MCA 1966) —Creepy crawly!


Arctic Monkeys “Knee Socks”
from AM (Domino 2013) N  —These guys have their own thing going - I can't really find another band that sounds in the same ballpark.


The Bangles “Single By Choice”
from Doll Revolution (Liberty 2003) —Vicki Peterson! 'Nuff said.


Mason Jennings “Patti and Robert”
from Always Been (Stats and Brackets 2014) N  —A song written after reading "Just Kids" by Patti Smith, and it's worthy of the inspiration.


Pet Shop Boys “Your Early Stuff”
from Elysium (Astralwerks 2013) —I imagine somebody told Neil Tennant something along the lines of the subject of this song. At any rate, this is a funny song.


Scritti Politti “Brushed With Oil, Dusted With Powder”
from Absolute: The Best of Scritti Politti (Virgin 2011) —Here's some early stuff from another band. Well, actually, mid-period.


Midlake “Provider”
from Antiphon (Bella Union/ATO www.bellaunion.com 2013) N  —Classic melodic ideas, exotic guitar and rhythms, hard to resist.


The Velvet Underground “Stephanie Says”
from VU (Polydor 1985) —I really like the way this song sounds coming right out of the Midlake one.


The Wilhelms “In Tall Buildings”
from Film At 11 (Perdition 2013) N L —A song I just can't get out of my head these days. Wistful, sad, determined.


Guy Clark “The High Price of Inspiration”
from My Favorite Picture Of You (Dualtone 2013) N  —I keep coming back for more, still I take no caution.


John Prine “Loretta”
from Poet - A Tribute to Townes Van Zandt (Fat Possum / Turnstile 2001) —Dances like a diamond shines, tells me lies I love to believe.


Amanda Shires “Box Cutters”
from Down Fell the Doves (Lightning Rod 2013) N  —Jason Isbell's wife made a pretty good record this past year that hasn't gotten enough attention. Heck, I even forget about it sometimes.

from Not the Tremblin' Kind (Diesel Only 2000) —Solid songs, great singer, beautiful record.


Emmylou Harris “Burn That Candle”
from Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town (Reprise 1978) —If you don't burn the candle, how will she ever find her way back home?


Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell “That's All It Took”
