Dionne Warwick “Move Me No Mountain”
from Then Came You (Spy 1975) —A terrific Warwick pseudo-disco number penned by Ragovoy. I have to check out the rest of this record; this song is amazing.
The Bo-Keys “Catch This Teardrop”
from Got to Get It Back (Electraphonic 2011) N —I'm blanking on the name of the great (but obscure) singer who was with the Bo-Keys last week when they were in town & who sings this cut. He's terrific, and I'm embarrassed.
Amy LaVere “Let Yourself Go (Come On)”
from Stranger Me (Archer Records 2011) N —LaVere covers a gem from Bobby Charles. Amy LaVere will be in town Aug. 12 at Off Broadway - I recommend checking her out.
Imelda May “Pulling the Rug”
from Mayhem (Decca url 2010) —This Irish woman can sing! And this song makes me want to dance.
Hanson “Thinking 'Bout Somethin'”
from Shout It Out (Three Car Garage 2010) —I played this last year when it came out, but cowbell this fantastic deserves a second spot of honor in this segment.
999 “Nasty Nasty”
from 999 (Captain Oi 1978) —Yeah, this is punk rock brilliance!
Supermoon “Photo Tangerine”
from demo Single (none 2011) N L —New one from a St. Louis band that sounds awfully good.
The Boomtown Rats “Mary of the 4th Form”
from A Tonic For the Troops (Columbia 1979) —True story: I loved this album when it came out, but then one day I listened to it while I was sick, and I associated it with vomit for many years before I learned to love it all over again.
Sleepy Kitty “Seventeen”
from Infinity City (Euclid Records 2011) N L —The Beatles meet the Velvet Underground - this St. Louis band has chutzpah! Just don't ask Michelle Bachmann to pronounce that.
Lyle Lovett “Private Conversation”
from The Road to Ensenada (Curb MCA 1996) —I still keep thinking about what a pleasure it was to see Hiatt and Lovett together at the Fox a few weeks back.
