Amy Winehouse “Our Day Will Come”
from Lioness: Hidden Treasures (Island 2011) N —Further proof that we lost one of the truly great singers of our time - she just owns this song, and conjures up a hope for a future which never came.
Nick Lowe “Til' the Real Thing Comes Along”
from The Old Magic (Yep Roc 2011) N —I'm not sure about the punctuation, but Nick Lowe has a really good song here.
Magazine “The Light Pours Out of Me (Version)”
from Scree (Virgin 1991) —The slightly different but still brilliant version.
Rough Shop “Just Because It Was Christmas”
from Live on Musical Merry-Go-Round 12-7-2009 (KDHX 2009) —Tonight is the first of 2 nights of holiday music perfection as Rough Shop brings the annual holiday extravaganza to Focal Point. I'll be there tonight. See you then.
Foghat “Ride, Ride, Ride”
from The Best of Foghat (Rhino 1989) —I think I'm gonna stop doing the cowbell segment - it's getting to be too much pressure, as I've already played most of the best ones. LIke this one, which deserves a second airing.
Phil Upchurch “You Can't Sit Down (Parts 1 & 2)”
from The Roots Of Mod (Uncut 2005) —This certainly fueled more than a few parties back in its heyday. Heck, I feel like dancing right here.
Dear John “Frustrated Conversation”
from single (BDR 2011) N L —The reissue of this fine St. Louis pop gem originally out back in 1981, and the first ever issue of music from the Retros, the St. Louis band that opened for the Ramones back in 1979, will be celebrated next Friday, Dec. 23 at Off Broadway. I can't wait!
The Blind Eyes “Hermetically Sealed”
from With a Bang! (Blind Eyes 2011) N L —Number one in KDHX airplay in 2011 - so let's play them some more, because they're so darn good.
Meshell Ndegeocello “Feeling For the Wall”
from Weather (Naive 2014 2011) N —Another of my fave records this year - why doesn't she get more attention? There's nobody else doing the things she does so well.
Anne McCue “Any Minute Now”
from Koala Motel (Messenger 2006) —She's done alright in Australia, but America doesn't know her name. Good singer/songwriter, though.
Willie Nelson “I Still Can't Believe You're Gone”
from Phases and Stages (Atlantic 1974) —In memory of Dan "Bee" Spears, the long-time bassist for Willie Nelson's band who passed away recently.
