Bob Seger System “Train Man” from Ramblin' Gamblin' Man VINYL SINGLE (Starline 1968) —Young Mr. Seger - so very different from later Mr. Seger. This one has a pyschedelic ballad vibe to it. I bet the Jefferson Airplane could have ran with this.Buy it!
Roscoe Mitchell “Trio Four For Eight” from Far Side (ECM 2010) N —I'm craving the experimental free jazz these days, and this brand new record from the legendary Art Ensemble member is gorgeous stuff.Buy it!
Miranda Lambert “That's the Way That the World Goes Round” from Revolution (Sony 2009) N —She won some big CMA award, and I realized I'd never heard her, but Robert Christgau wrote a great piece on her, and this raucous rockin' version of John Prine works for me.Buy it!
Jim Hendrix “Lonely Avenue” from West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology (Sony 2010) N —Ray Charles never sounded like this - I don't know if this cut was released in any form any other place, but I'm glad to finally hear it here.Buy it!
Jefferson Airplane “Don't Let Me Down” from Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/16/66 Early & Late Shows - Grace's Debut (Collector's Choice 2010) N —Not very well-known, but a nice bluesy cut with great Marty Balin vocals.Buy it!
Everything But The Girl “Missing” from Amplified Heart (Atlantic) —I'd forgotten that the original (and superior) mix of this song, before it became a dance sensation, had some cowbell, probably played by Dave Mattacks.Buy it!
Camper Van Beethoven “Never Go Back” from Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart (Omnivore Recordings 1989) —I sure did love these guys back in the day - and they still sound good after all this time.Buy it!
The Who “So Sad About Us” from A Quick One (Happy Jack) (MCA 1966) —I hadn't heard this song in a long, long time until somebody played it at work yesterday, and it just sounded so amazingly perfect.Buy it!
David Bowie “Hang On To Yourself” from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (EMI) —I bet X played this song a lot when they were getting started.Buy it!
Elvis Costello “All These Strangers” from National Ransom (Hear Music 2010) N —Bob Reuter used to kid me 20 years ago about how long it would take me to play Richard Thompson or Elvis Costello on every radio show. So this pairing is for Bob.Buy it!
Sweethearts of the Rodeo “Brand New Tennessee Waltz” from Rodeo Waltz (SUGAR HILL ww.sugarhillrecords.com 1993) —This terrific duo came back to my mind the other day for the first time in 15 years, and then I remembered this gorgeous Jesse Winchester cover.Buy it!
Loudon Wainwright III “The Krugman Blues” from 10 Songs for the New Depression (Cummerbund 2010) N —Loudon will be at the Old Rock House Monday night. I hope he sings this ditty about my favorite columnist.Buy it!
