Jack McDuff “Hot Barbecue”
from Jack McDuff The Prestige Years (Prestige) —JW: Welcome to the Super Summer Song Spectacular edition of Memphis to Manchester. Joining me in the studio is Rich Reese from Pop! The Beat Bubble Burst. We are alternating sets of Summer songs today and began at 5:00 AM on his show. 1966 instrumental.
Kirsty Maccoll “He's On the Beach”
from Galore (IRS 1995) —RR: Kirsty shone brightly until her untimely death at age 41 in 2000.
Nushu “Like The Sun”
from Hula (Nushu 2010) —RR: From the band's website: NUSHU’s Hula is an intoxicating amalgamation of girl-group sweetness and power poppin’ melodicism, sung and played (for the most part) by two very talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists, Lisa Mychols and Hillary Bur
Chuck Prophet “Summertime Thing”
from No Other Love (New West 2002) —JW: One of the best summer songs of the last couple decades. Written by Chuck Prophet & recorded in 2002.
Redwalls “Summer Romance”
from Redwalls (Mad Dragon 2007) —RR: Nice Summer tune from the former Beatles cover band's third album.
R.E.M. “Summer Turns to High”
from Reveal (Rhino/Warner Bros.) —RR: Another band that you wouldn't think could pull off a convincing Beach Boys homage, but they nailed it!
from Guero (Interscope 2005) —RR: Should have been called "Summer Girl" in my opinion.
Bob Dylan “SUMMER DAYS”
from Love and Theft (Columbia 2001) —RR: The Brothers Lazaroff did a fantastic job on this one at the Dylan Tribute Show last month.
Chad & Jeremy “A Summer Song” (El Records 1965) —RR: I called Chad Stuart "Jeremy" by mistake while interviewing him, he said that's ok, just as long as I don't call him Peter or Gordon.
