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.
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.
Lydia Mendoza “Mal Hombre”
from Best of (Arhoolie 2008) —I think my friend Rene posted this song on Facebook recently - I love, love, love 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.
Bruce Springsteen “Candy's Boy”
from The Promise (Columbia 2010) N —There are lyrics here which turned up in "Candy's Room," but essentially, it's a different song - and with a cowbell!
Everything But The Girl “Missing”
from Amplified Heart (Atlantic 1994) —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.
Husker Du “Never Talking to You Again”
from Zen Arcade (SST 1984) —Such a shock when this song came on the first time I played this album - acoustic guitars! What could be more punk than that?
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.
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.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
