Time zone: central
Billy Nichols “Would You Believe” (SEQUEL 1968) —Thanks to Geoff Kessell for introducing me on Facebook to this gem featuring Steve Marriott and the Small Faces
Electric Light Orchestra “Roll Over Beethoven”
from ELO II (Sony 2006) —RIP Mike Edwards, who played cello with ELO for years and who passed away a few days ago in a farm accident - police identified him through Youtube videos of the band. Welcome to the modern world.
The Clash “I Fought the Law”
from The Singles (Epic 1991) —I remember eagerly anticipating the release of "The Cost of Living EP" and being flabbergasted to hear this version of this classic for the first time.
The Chills “Heavenly Pop Hit”
from Submarine Bells (Slash 1990) —I never loved this New Zealand group the way some people I knew did, but I worship the heck out of this masterpiece of perfection - the song title says it all.
Barry White “I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby”
from Gold (Universal 2008) —The funkiest harpsichord I know - oh, what a groove.
from Red Velvet Car (Eagle 2010) N —This is the second song I've heard from this, and I really dig it - I love the way Ann Wilson's voice has grown.
from OK Computer (CAPITOL 1997) —Talk about cowbell! I'd forgotten how richly the noble percussion instrument contributes on this song.
Ray Parker, Jr. “The Other Woman” (Arista 1982) —A year later, he sang :"Ghostbusters" and his career was over, but I always loved this cowbell-laden gem.
Wizzard “You Can Dance the Rock 'n' Roll”
from Wizzard Brew (EMI 1973) —Bonus cowbell track - hey I could have picked the 13 minute "Meet Me at the Jailhouse."
Katy Moffatt “Slow Movin' Freight Train”
from Hearts Gone Wild (Watermelon 1994) —She'll be at the Sheldon Sunday night for the Larry Weir tribute concert - Larry deeply loved the music of Katy Moffatt.
Joe Ely “All Just to Get to You”
from Letter to Laredo (MCA 1995) —Joe Ely isn't coming, but as long as I was in the Songwriters Showcase mood, I figured I'd add this gem from one of Larry's faves and mine (with Springsteen on backing vocals).
Richard Barone “Girl”
from Glow (Bar/None 2010) N —It's always exciting to hear new music from this often overlooked songwriter (formerly of the slightly less but mostly overlooked Bongos).
Rosanne Cash “I Don't Want to Spoil the Party”
from Hits 1979-1989 (CBS 1989) —Here's what I know. I was in a band (60 Hz Hm) with a female singer - we did a country-flavored take on the Beatles "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party." We saw Rosanne Cash play around 1988, while the band was still together. The next year, she recorded it.
