Hugh Laurie “Baby, Please Make a Change”
from Let Them Talk (Warner Bros. 2011) N —TV star gets to make a record - it's quite listenable, if hardly essential. However, bring Tom Jones & Irma Thomas on board for a duet, and you've got something special.
Peter Tosh “Till Your Well Runs Dry (Original Jamaican mix)”
from Legalize it (Columbia 1976) N —Another classic from Tosh's most fertile period.
War “Me and Baby Brother”
from Deliver the Word (Far Out 1973) —To grow up in the 70s was to love War; everybody knew these songs back then.
Tommy Keene “Running For Your Life”
from Behind the Parade (Second Motion Records 2011) N —Some artists spend their lives searching for new approaches to their music; some figure out exactly what they like and then produce slight variations throughout 30 years. And Keene always makes me happy with those variations.
Iris DeMent “Let the Mystery Be”
from Infamous Angel (Warner Bros. 1992) —I resisted Ms. DeMent back in my younger days, but she did eventually win me over, and this is a beautiful song of good philosophy.
John Hiatt “Thank You Girl”
from Bring the Family (A&M 1987) —People always ask me about a new John Hiatt record if it's as good as this one. Nothing will ever be as good as this one.
Rudy Green “Juicy Fruit”
from Sin Alley Part 1 (Crypt 1997) —That's what the girls call me! Somebody on Facebook introduced me to this last week - can't remember who to thank!
The Beatles “Dizzy Miss Lizzy”
from Help! CD Album (Parlophone 1965) —Yes, I love the Larry Williams version, but I gotta say the Beatles own this one.
Imelda May “Sneaky Freak”
from Mayhem (Decca 2010) N —The modern stalking song mentions that "I know your passwords."
