Muddy Waters “I Can't Be Satisfied”
from His Best: 1947 to 1955 (Chess 1997) —If it was just that slippery slide guitar part, you'd have enough reason for celebration, but this record jumps out of the speakers in every way.
Robert Plant “Big Love”
from Manic Nirvana (Es Paranza 1990) —Back when this record was new, I just dismissed it as another big dumb rock record from a washed up metal guy. I've since revised my opinion - Plant never was washed up.
Tim Lee 3 “Sirens (vers. 2)”
from Raucous Americanus (Cool Dog Sound 2010) N —A song so good they put it on their new double album twice - though I gotta admit, the two versions aren't so different that I really know why.
George Harrison “All Things Must Pass” (Apple 1970) —All those great songs George had saved up, all that Phil Spector lushness, what an album!
The Dictators “Next Big Thing”
from The Dictators Go Girl Crazy (Epic 1975) —I try not to play the same cowbell songs twice, so we'll consider this a bonus cowbell track which I played over a year ago and wanted to hear again.
Iggy Pop “Girls”
from New Values (Arista 1979) —I love girls, they're all over this world. Man, I should have played Cars and Girls by the Dictators before this, shouldn't I?
XTC “Statue of Liberty”
from White Music (Geffen 2001) —You've been the subject of so many dreams since I climbed your torso. What a great line.
Edwyn Collins “Come Tomorrow, Come Today”
from Losing Sleep (Heavenly 2010) N —Edwyn Collins, former leader of Orange Juice, keeps on keeping on - this is his first recording after having to relearn everything after a cerebral hemmorhage a few years back.
Eddie Kirkland “Walk in the Dark”
from Democrat Blues (Blue Suit 2004) —The man recorded with John Lee Hooker, played with Otis Redding, and was still going strong onstage at the age of 88.
Tas Cru “Glad To Be Alive”
from Jus' Desserts (Crustee Tees 2013) N —My review of this record is here: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Tas-Cru-Jus-Desserts-2010.htm
New York Dolls “Funky But Chic”
from Dancing Backwards In High Heels Comp (429 2011) N —They've re-done one of David Johansen's greatest songs. David & Syl Sylvain will be out touring the sheds opening for Motley Crue & Poison this summer. Will those audiences understand?
Over the Rhine “Infamous Love Song”
from The Long Surrender (GSD 2011) N —Which came first? They wrote songs that sound just like a Joe Henry song, or they asked Joe Henry to produce this record?
Devotchka “The Common Good”
from 100 Lovers (Epitaph 2011) N —I can't believe this weird little band I once saw at the Way Out Club is making such great records.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
