Janelle Monáe “Make the Bus”
from The ArchAndroid (Wondaland/Bad Boy 2010) N  —The blending of Monae and Of Montreal - it will all happen live at the Pageant next month (I think).


Bg Boi “Daddy Fat Sax”
from Sir Lucious Left Foot . . . The Son of Chico Dusty (Def Jam 2010) N  —What an incredible rhythm track!


CHARLIEMUSSELWHITE “Sad and Beautiful World”
from THE WELL (Alligator 2010) N  —Sweet swinging blues with co-vocal by the great Mavis Staples - her new album comes out Tuesday, and I'd play it but I can't find where I put it.


Otis Rush “Reap What You Sow”
from Mourning in the Morning (Cotillion 1969) —Otis Rush went down to Muscle Shoals (in the days when young Duane Allman was there) and recorded this wondrous record. This song burns.


Magic Slim And The Teardrops “Shame”

Terry Allen “Amarillo Highway”
from Best of the Sugar Hill Years (SUGAR HILL www.sugarhillrecords.com 2007) —The great Terry Allen will be one of the artists coming to the Sheldon a week from Sunday, Sept. 12, to pay tribute to our lost friend Larry Weir,. I know Larry was the man who taught me how cool Terry Allen is.


Brenda Lee “Sweet Nothin's”
from Anthology (1956-1980) (MCA 1991) —What a great song sung so darn brilliantly by the very young Ms. Lee.


Velvet Underground “Oh! Sweet Nuthin'”
from Loaded (Cotillion 1970) —I saw the Black Crowes do a great version of this one last week.


Richard Barone “Gravity's Pull”
from Glow (Bar/None 2010) N  —Former Bongos front-man has a brand new record of his delightful pop music.


Tight Pants Syndrome “Breakin' Up With You's Been Great”
from Fully Attractive CD Album (Blip Blap! 2010) N L —Local band puts out a new record of 17 songs, each one a marvel of pop craftsmanship with hooks to kill for.


John Wesley Harding “When the Sun Comes Out”
from Here Comes the Groom (sire 1989) —Since I don't have and haven't yet heard his new one, I thought I'd go back 21 years for the record that made me realize his major talent.


Booker T & the MG's “Soul Limbo”
from The Very Best of Booker T & the MG's (Rhino 1994) —A cowbell-laden tune from the keyboard player who will headline the Big Muddy Festival on Saturday night at 9.


Booker T “Hey Ya”
from Potato Hole (Anti 2009) —I admit it - I heard John Wendland play this yesterday, and I said to myself, "Self, this is a cowbell classic."


Lone Justice “Ways To Be Wicked”
from Lone Justice (Geffen 1985) —These guys had the hype, these guys had the heart, these guys had the songs. I don't know why they didn't climb the charts with this brilliant Tom Petty song.


Thin White Rope “Not Your Fault”
from Moonhead (Frontier 1987) —One of the greatest bands of the 1980s - I saw them live a few times, and I'm still thrilled.


Heart “Red Velvet Car” (Eagle 2010) N  —A stunningly lovely song from the Wilson sisters.


Eliza Carthy & Norma Waterson “Poor Wayfaring Stranger”
from Gift (Topic 2010) N  —It's unfair how beautiful this is!


Richard Thompson “The Money Shuffle”
from Dream Attic (Shout Factory www.shoutfactory.com 2010) N  —"I love kittens and little babies / Can't you see that's the guy I am / And your money is so safe with me / I'm such an honest man." Brilliant.


Alejandro Escovedo “Silver Cloud”
from Street Songs of Love CD Album (Fantasy 2009) N  —Alejandro rocks! Hope he won some new fans at LouFest last weekend.


Undertones “Teenage Kicks”
from The Undertones (Rykodisc) —Here's a classic radio conundrum - knowing that the majority of my listeners have probably never heard the Undertones at all, I offer their greatest song, thus preventing me from playing the other great ones they have, not yet heard by fans of this one.


XTC “Real By Reel”
from Drums & Wires (Virgin 1979) —On the other hand, here's a great XTC song that's a little bit deeper catalog than just going for the biggest hits of an unjustly obscure band.


Miles Davis “Filles de Kilimanjaro” (Columbia 1968) —Magnificent cut from the last album by Miles' classic 2nd quartet of Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams.


Ella Fitzgerald “Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me”
from Sings the Duke Ellington Songbook (Verve www.vervemusicgroup.com 1957) —Don't believe those rumors, I'll tell you the truth.

Bunker Hill “Hide and Go Seek, Parts 1 & 2”
from East Coast Teen Party (East-Coast Music) —I've never heard anything like this one before - it's unbelievable.


The Chords “Sh'Boom”
from Atlantic Rhythm and Blues 1947-1974 (Atlantic unk 1985) —The original and still the best.


Jackie Wilson “Et Cetera”
from East Coast Teen Party (East-Coast Music) —Jackie Wilson could speak in tongues sometimes.


Wanda Jackson “Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad”
from Vintage Collections Series (CAPITOL 1996) —He hugged me and he kissed me and he asked me not to do it again.


Emmylou Harris “Here I Am”
from Stumble Into Grace (Nonesuch 2003) —Hard to believe it's been 7 years since this one came out - harder to believe she's only released one solo album since this one.


Marty Stuart “Hangman”
from Ghost Train (Sugar Hill Records www.sugarhillrecords.com 2010) N  —Marty co-wrote this witth Johnny Cash.


Marty Stuart “Porter Wagoner's Grave”
from Ghost Train (Sugar Hill Records www.sugarhillrecords.com 2010) N  —This wasn't what I was planning to play, but I got confused. A nice cut, anyway.
