from Sweetheart ofd the Sun (Model Music 2011) —Susanna, Debbie, and Vicki - singing together, not much better in the world than that.


X “Blue Spark”
from Under The Big Black Sun (Elektra 1982) —Billy Zoom lights that spark - love that guitar sound.


New York Dolls “Plenty of Music”
from One Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This (Roadrunner 2006) —I don't know why the Dolls reunion didn't sell millions of records. It certainly wasn't for lack of great songs.


Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band “Her Eyes are a Blue Million Miles”

The Vertigo Swirl “Satisfied Rainbows”
from Swirl 3 (Rubberstamp 2011) N L —They live up to their name, these St. Louis psychedelic melody masters.


Cheap Trick “ELO Kiddies”
from Cheap Trick (Epic 1977) —I do the unexpected, and play this song in the middle of a set, rather than as a way to say hello. We go the extra mile at Sound Salvation to keep you surprised.

Chris Smither “On the Edge”
from Hundred Dollar Valentine (Signature Sounds www.signaturesounds.com 2012) N  —This new album hits the stores June 19 - consider this a sneak preview.


Elvis Costello “The Crooked Line”
from Secret, Profane And Sugarcane (Hear Music 2009) —Elvis Costello and Emmylou Harris - they do sound great together.


JD McPherson “Scandalous”
from Signs & Signifiers (Rounder www.rounder.com 2012) N  —This record was re-released after originally being out 2 years back on a tiny label. It's rockabilly with r'n'b horns, very nice stuff.


Ruth Brown “Daddy Daddy”
from The Best of Ruth Brown (Rhino 1996) —Ruth Brown was so darn seductive!


Jimmie Lunceford & His Orchestra “I'm Nuts About Screwy Music”
from Swingsation (grp 1998) —This song title is one of the all-time greats - and this 1930s swing is plenty o'fun.


Booker T. & The MG's “Green Onions”

Alejandro Escovedo “Sally Was A Cop”

Pere Ubu “Horns Are a Dilemma”
from Song of the Bailing Man (Cooking Vinyl 1982) —David Thomas, the singer and guiding force for Pere Ubu and Rocket From the Tombs, is quite ill right now, being forced to cancel the RFTT tour in Europe. Hope he gets better soon.

Chet Atkins & His Galloping Guitar “Oh ByJingo! (Oh My Gee, You're the Only Girl For Me)”
from Guitar Legend: The Early Years (Buddha 2000) —The man could play that guitar!


Sonny Landreth “Heavy Heart Rising”
from Elemental Journey (Proper 2012) N  —Brand new album of instrumentals hits the stores May 22. It's a corker.


Elmore James & His Broomdusters “Hawaiian Boogie”
from The Sky Is Crying: The History of Elmore James (Rhino 1993) —Classic instrumental featuring one of the greatest slide guitarists ever.


Peter Karp & Sue Foley “Plank Spank”
from Beyond the Crossroads (blind pig www.rounder.com 2012) N  —One more killer blues instrumental featuring two great players. Here's my review of this album: http://blues.about.com/od/cddvdreview1/fr/Peter-Karp-Susan-Foley-Beyond-The-Crossroads-2012.htm


Doll By Doll “Butcher Boy”
from Remember (Rhino 1979) —We just don't hear Doll By Doll enough these days, do we?


City Squirrel “Little World”

John Grant “I Wanna Go to Marz”
from Queen of Denmark (Bella Union 2010) —This is the guy who wrote the title track of this record which Sinead O'Connor does so well on her new album. He used to be in the Czars, but I've only just now heard him. Midlake backs him up here.

The dB's “That Time Is Gone”
from Falling Off the Sky (Bar/None Records www.bar-none.com 2012) N  —June 12, the first new record from the dB's since 1987, the first from the original line-up since 1982. It's great!


The Beatles “Tell Me Why”
from a hard day's night CD Album (CAPITOL 1964) —Don Draper expected more of this, but he got something else entirely. And it didn't interest him.


Soviet League “Row”
from Soviet League (Unknown 2012) —I forget who recommended this the other day, but this is very cool stuff.


The Retros “High Energy Love”

Suburban Studs “I Hate School”
from 1 2 3 4 Punk & New Wave 1976-1979 (Unknown 1999) —Me, I always enjoyed school. But a good ol' punk rock rant against it is kinda fun.


Vintage Trouble “Total Strangers”
from The Bomb Shelter Sessions (Vintage Trouble 2010) —Man, these guys rock.


Sir Joe Quarterman “I Made a Promise”
from Blax-Plosion (Charly 2001) —There was so much great funk in the 70s that didn't hit the charts.


The Soul Rebels “Turn It Up”
from Unlock Your Mind (Universal Music Group International 2012) N  —Keeping the dance party going for a little bit, anyway.


Dirty Dozen Brass Band “Tomorrow”
from Twenty Dozen (Savoy Jazz 2012) N  —I've been looking at this new record on the shelves for a few weeks, finally worked in a song. Interesting, sort of a ska vibe on this track. I dig it.


Peter Tosh “Brand New Second Hand”
from Legalize it (Columbia 1976) —I know this song is mean and nasty in the lyrics, but it's such a great hook, and Tosh knows how to sound sweet while he's being spiteful.

from Locked Down (Nonesuch 2012) N  —I gotta admit, this is one tough track right here.


Peter Wolf “If You Wanna Be With Somebody”
from Fool's Parade (Mercury 2010) —I don't think I actually heard this record back when it came out - at any rate, as I've always loved Peter Wolf, I was surprised to discover this recently, and it's typically great.


Janiva Magness “I'm Alive”
from Stronger For It (Alligator 2012) N  —Very cool interpretation of Shelby Lynne's song.


Jim Lauderdale “Playing On My Heartstrings”
from Country Super Hits Volume One (Yep Roc 2006) —One of my fave Lauderdale songs; of course, I usually say that about whichever one I'm hearing at the moment.


Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives “Holding On To Nothing”
from Nashville, Volume 1: Tear the Woodpile Down (Sugar Hill Records www.sugarhillrecords.com 2012) N R  —When I got the request twenty minutes ago, I didn't expect I'd move in such a country direction, but here it is. I can't control these things, they just happen.


The Little Willies “Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves”
from For the Good Times (Milking Bull 2012) N  —It could be because I've never heard the original, but dang, this cut blows me away.


Hayes Carll “Another Like You”
from KMAG YOYO (Lost Highway www.losthighwayrecords.com 2011) —An all-time classic of the country duet sub-genre of male/female insult/love songs.
