Bob Dylan “It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)”

The Gaslight Anthem “Changing of the Guards”
from Chimes of Freedom (Amnesty International 2012) N  —As close as it is possible to imagine what Thin Lizzy would have done with this song.


Iggy Pop “Pleasure”

Slaid Cleaves “Last of the V8's”
from No Angel Knows (Philo 1997) —An early more rocking Cleaves song. (Of course, rocking is relative.)


Richard Barone “Silence Is Our Song”

The dB's “Far Away and Long Ago”
from Falling Off the Sky (Bar/None Records www.bar-none.com 2012) N  —Chris Stamey is another of those master tunesmiths - the new album comes out in less than 2 weeks, and it is brilliant.


Supergrass “Brecon Beacons”
from Life On Other Planets (CAPITOL 2002) —Here's one of those bands that churned out a lot of really good records that I barely paid attention to while they were around. They always make me smile when I do, though.


Cheap Trick “Baby Loves to Rock”
from All Shook Up (Epic 1980) —A much better song than I gave it credit for when it was new.


Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens “You Gotta Move”
from Sticky Soul Fingers: A Rolling Stones Tribute (Mojo 2012) N  —Who better to cover this Gospel number?


Dorothy Moore “Misty Blue” (MALACO 1976) —One of those masterpieces that need to be revisited on a regular basis.


Hank Crawford w/Johnny Burke “Misty”
from Heart and Soul (Rhino 1994) —I just couldn't resist playing an astounding version of "Misty" after "Misty Blue." That's just the way my mind works.

from Bring It On Home (Saguaro Road 2012) N  —A beautiful version of a beautiful John Mayall song.


Kevin Gordon “Trying to Get to Memphis”
from Gloryland (Crowville Collective 2010) N  —He'll be playing at Twangfest next Saturday, June 9 at the Duck Room in Blueberry Hill. Highly recommended.

from I Like to Keep Myself in Pain (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2012) N  —Covering John Wesley Harding. She'll be at Twangfest on Thursday, June 7 at the Duck Room in Blueberry Hill. One of the best singers there is.

Ha Ha Tonka “Problem Solver”
from Death of a Decade (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2011) —At Twangfest on Friday, June 8, at the Duck Room. One of my fave songs last year.

from Elemental Journey (Proper 2012) N  —Explosive slide guitar workout - this new all-instrumental album is just thrilling.


Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band “Co Fa”
from Zydeco (Putumayo 2000) —I'm not usually big on the Putumayo label, but this track on a pretty good zydeco comp just got under my skin.


LOUISIANARED “Red's New Dream”
from The Best of Louisiana Red (Evidence 1995) —A seriously weird blues.


Chris Smither “Feeling By Degrees”
from Hundred Dollar Valentine (Signature Sounds www.signaturesounds.com 2012) N  —New album hits the stores on June 19.


Randy Newman “Korean Parents”
from Harps and Angels (Nonesuch 2008) —Ah - I gave away movie tickets, and my head is spinning from all the calls. Hope this song works here.


Frank Sinatra “Paper Doll”
from Come Swing With Me (CAPITOL 1961) —An early song supporting masturbation, I think.


Curtis Stigers “This Bitter Earth”
from Let's Go Out Tonight (Concord 2012) N  —Nice cover of the Brook Benton classic.


Jimmie Beck & His Orchestra “Pipe Dreams”
from Night Train to Nashville - Music City Rhythm & Blues (1945-1970) (Lost Highway www.losthighwayrecords.com 2004) —I know nothing about this guy, but this cut is a pure instrumental dancing pleasure.


Sam Cooke “Baby Won't You Please Come Home”
from The Rhythm And The Blues (RCA 1995) —If you only buy one Sam Cooke record, I think it should be this one. But I can't imagine owning only one of anything.

Etta James “Born on the Bayou”
from Matriarch of the Blues (Private Music 2000) —Great arrangement of the CCR song.


Alejandro Escovedo “Big Station” (Fantasy 2012) —We're very close to the release of this new one from one of our greatest songwriters.


The Velvet Underground “I Can't Stand It”
from VU (Polydor 1985) —Now 27 years later, the songs on VU sound as classic as the ones on the original albums.


Karate Bikini “Baby Blue”
from Sauce of the Apple Horse (self 2012) N L —Another gem of a song from one of the most reliable pop bands in St. Louis.


The Maxtone Four “Bob”
