Rolling Stones “Grown Up Wrong”
from 12 X 5 (ABKCO 1964) —I believe it was Tony C who posted this song on Facebook and inspired me to play it.
Chic “I Want Your Love”
from Very Best of Chic (Rhino 2000) —Somebody posted the video of this to Facebook - I'm getting lots of great musical ideas that way. Man, just check out that bass line.
Eden Brent “Ain't Got No Troubles” (Yellow Dog 2010) N —She ain't got no troubles because she has such an incredible New Orleans piano groove here.
Nic Jones “Courting is a Pleasure”
from Penguin Eggs (Shanachie 1980) —An amazing English folk guitarist who never recorded again after this 1980 album - 2 years later he was hurt in a car crash and couldn't play any more.
Sloan “Live On”
from Action Pact (RCA 2003) —Another riff rocking cowbell track suggested by Jim Varvaris, who, now that I think of it, also recommended the Tom Petty cut. We'd be a sorry cowbell segment without Jim's tireless efforts to help.
Beck “Mixed Bizness”
from Midnite Vultures (DGC 1999) —I'm not overly fond of Beck in general, but I do still enjoy this funky Prince-ish turn he did, especially this cowbell-laden track.
Bryan Ferry “This Is Tomorrow”
from In Your Mind (Virgin 1977) —Bryan Ferry knew that the combination of Chris Spedding on guitar and a cowbell in the backline couldn't be beat.
Posies “So Caroline”
from Blood/Candy (Ryko 2010) N —Nice to hear these guys back at their power pop original game.
Bob Dylan “Do You Hear What I Hear?”
from Christmas in the Heart (Columbia 2009) —I really think Dylan's Christmas record was great - just compare how silly that parody was with the warmth and passion of this cut.
Regina Carter “N'Teri”
from Reverse Thread (E1 2010) N —If I'd had any brains, I'd have figured out a way to catch Regina Carter touring behind this album at Jazz at the Bistro last month. This is gorgeous.
Meat Puppets “Out My Way” (Rykodisc 1986) —I've just been reminiscing about the concerts I used to see back in the olden days - these guys could be sublime.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
