Time zone: central


Motorhead “Ace of Spades” Single (Bronze 1980) —I hope people had their alarm clocks set for this - there ain't no hitting the snooze button on Motorhead.


Link Wray & His Ray Men “Ace of Spades”
from Law of the Jungle (Ace 2002) —The weird thing about this instrumental, entirely unrelated to the previous song by the way, is that barely audible harmonica.


O.V. Wright “Ace of Spades”
from The Soul of O.V. Wright (Geffen* 1972) —Apparently, this is a popular card to play.


Ian Gomm “Come On”
from Summer Holiday (Line 1978) —What a great version of the Chuck Berry classic - thanks to James Weber down in New Orleans for reminding me of this guy & introducing me to this cut.


Chuck Berry “Little Queenie”
from The Anthology (Chess 1959) L —For some reason, this song just popped into my head the other day, and it inspired a nice long thread of discussion on Facebook.


T. Rex “Bang A Gong (Get It On)”
from Electric Warrior (Reprise 1971) —Meanwhile, I was still thinking.


Lucinda Williams “Buttercup”
from Blessed Single (Lost Highway 2011) N  —The best song on her best album in 15 years.


Television “Friction”
from Marquee Moon (Elektra 1977) —Oh those guitars! Actually, the bass and drums are fantabulous, too.


999 “Homicide”
from Homicide: The Best of 999 (Cleopatra 1998) —Well, that will teach me to trust what's in my Itunes, not realizing Cat put it there, not realizing it's the live version. It's still a great song, but . . .


XTC “Helicopter”
from Drums and Wires (Virgin 1979) —This song can't do anything but make me smile and bounce off the walls.


Edwyn Collins “Come Tomorrow, Come Today”
from Losing Sleep (Heavenly 2010) N  —There is a wonderful interview with Edwyn Collins at the Village Voice website - he's coming back from 2 strokes, & he says his singing is better than his talking.


Elvis Costello “Luxembourg”
from Trust (Rhino 1981) —That Pete Thomas could bust some drumming moves. Still can, but this one! Dang!


Todd Snider “Looking For a Job”
from Live the Storyteller (Aimless 2011) N  —There are only a couple songs I can actually play on the radio out of this double live disc - Todd likes to drop in a couple words that threaten western civilization itself.

Steve Wynn & The Miracle 3 “Resolution”
from Northern Aggression (Yep Roc www.yeproc.com 2010) N  —Has anyone stopped to count the number of songs Steve Wynn has recorded over the last 30 years?


Van Morrison “Domino”
from It's Too Late to Stop Now (Polydor 1974) —One of the all-time great live albums right here.


Rufus Thomas “The Preacher & the Bear”
from Best of Rufus Thomas: The Singles (stax 1992) N  —The world's oldest teacher preaches!


Vern Gosdin “Chiseled in Stone”
from Super Hits (Columbia 1994) —I owe Spencer Marquart for pointing me in the direction of this song.


Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band “Lick My Decals Off, Baby” (Reprise 1970) —The cowbell plays a small but important role here.


John Cale “Evidence”
from Sabotage / Live (IRS 1979) —This album was my introduction to John Cale, and I still think it deserves way more respect. And a cowbell on this track.


Damon Fowler “After the Rain”
from Devil Got His Way (blind pig www.rounder.com 2011) N  —A Chuck Prophet cover, done quite nicely.


Kate Jacobs “Jesus Has Been Drinking”
from Home Game (Kate Jacobs 2010) N  —A song about one of those people we don't always notice.


Abigail Washburn “Bring Me My Queen”
from City of Refuge (Rounder www.rounder.com 2011) N  —Stunning.

from KMAG YOYO (Lost Highway 2011) N  —Boy, you ain't a poet, just a drunk with a pen.


Buddy Miller “Meds”
from The Majestic Silver Strings (New West 2011) N  —That's Lee Ann Womack singing this Marc Ribot composition.


Loretta Lynn “You've Just Stepped In (From Stepping Out On Me)”
from Gold: Loretta Lynn (MCA NASHVILLE 2006) —Loretta says she can't bring herself to leave though she knows she should, but I bet she did eventually.


Buddy Guy “Someone Else Is Steppin' In”
from Playlist: The Very Best of Buddy Guy (Silvertone Legacy 2009) N  —Uh oh. This guy wins. Hope he wasn't married to Loretta.


Gregg Allman “Blind Man”
from Low Country Blues (Rounder www.rounder.com 2011) N  —Gregg Allman wants his woman back, and he's gonna sing his heart out to prove it.


Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears “Booty City”
from Scandalous (Lost Highway 2011) N  —That's one tough groove they've got going here.


KC & The Sunshine Band “Boogie Shoes”
from The Best Of KC & the Sunshine Band (Rhino 1989) —These guys made some of my all-time fave tough groove records.


Charles Bradley “The World Is Going Up in Flames”
from No Time for Dreaming (Daptone Records 2010) N  —Now this guy can sing a little bit.

from Sophisticated Ladies (Decca 2011) N  —An incredible vocal by Cassandra Wilson on this beautiful Johnny Mercer number.


Johnny Hodges “Passion Flower”
from Passion Flower 1940-46 (RCA Bluebird 1995) —That Billy Strayhorn could write a seductive and moody piece, couldn't he?


Ben Webster “Jive at Six”
from King of the Tenors (Verve 1993) —The man just made so much great music - it always does my heart good to hear him.


Carmen McRae “Blame It On My Youth”
from Ultimate Carmen McRae (Sony 1993) —Was this guy stepping out on her, or did he just dump her? Either way, he was a bastard, right?


Marianne Faithfull “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”
from Strange Weather (Island 1987) —I just love this record - many of these covers, including this one, remain the definitive versions in my head.


Over the Rhine “The King Knows How”
from The Long Surrender (GSD 2011) N  —I'm liking everything I've heard on this record - maybe I should actually acquire it for myself instead of just sampling cuts at the station.


Willie Nelson “Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down”
from Country Music (Rounder www.rounder.com 2010) —This album was released last April - and nothing since. Has Willie gone that long without a new record before?


Jerry Reed “Blue Moon of Kentucky”
from Jerry Reed Explores Guitar Country (RCA 1969) —A delightful version of the classic.
