7:02am

Seal & Jeff Beck “Like a Rolling Stone”
from Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan (Amnesty International 2012) N  —An inspired match of vocalist, guitarist, and song.

7:09am

Bob Delevante “Like a Meadowlark Blues”
from Columbus and the Colossal Mistake (Relay 2005) —Talented songwriter with Buddy Miller playing guitar - yep, that works.

7:14am

Neil Young & Crazy Horse “Travel On”
from Americana (Reprise 2012) N  —It's brilliant. It's stupid. It actually rocks.

7:22am

Slade “My Town”
from Old New Borrowed & Blue (Polygram 1974) —Somebody sold us pert near the whole Slade catalogue at the record store, so we've listened to a lot of Slade the past few weeks. Man, those guys were working class rock geniuses.

7:26am

Spoon “Sister Jack”
from Gimme Fiction (Merge www.mergerecords.com 2005) —I don't love Spoon the way some friends of mine do, but I know a great pop song when I hear one, and this is one of those.

7:31am

A Band of Bees “Hourglass”
from Free the Bees (EMI 2004) —I don't know how I missed these guys until recently, but I'm slowly catching on - this is as strong a rock/pop outfit as the millenium has produced.

7:35am

Elvis Costello “45”
from When I Was Cruel CD Album (Island 2002) —Ten years have passed since this record came out - how did that happen?

7:38am

Eleni Mandell “Needle and Thread”
from Artificial Fire (Zedtone 2009) —I know she has a new album out, but this song from her previous record just called to me the other day.

7:42am

Susanna Hoffs “November Sun”
from Someday (Baroque Folk 2012) N  —The label name includes the watchword for this record - baroque. I'd say baroque pop, not folk. Gorgeous.

7:46am

Lesley Gore “You Don't Own Me”
from It's My Party: The Mercury Anthology (Island Def Jam 1968) —As powerful a feminist anthem as you'll find.

7:48am

Love “You I'll Be Following”
from Love (Elektra 1966) —He doesn't mean on Twitter.

7:51am

Derek “Cinammon”
from Classic Rock: 1968 - Blowin' Your Mind (Time Life 1991) —Tastes good.

7:53am

Rufus Wainwright “Rashida”
from Out of the Game (Decca 2012) N  —Rufus doesn't break new ground on this record, but he refines all the majestic elements that made me love him in the first place.

8:01am

Fiona Apple “Extraordinary Machine” (Epic 2005) —Another case where the previous album has a song calling me while the new album sits on the shelf. Nothing wrong with the new one, but this one is so good.

8:05am

Richard Thompson “One Door Opens”
from Live at the BBC (Universal unk 2011) —Great live solo version of a song that was relatively new in 2004 when he went on the BBC for this performance.

8:09am

The Vertigo Swirl “Eulplonn Sunrise”
from Swirl 3 (Rubberstamp 2011) L —Brian Marek writes great songs.

8:13am

The Gourds “Cracklins”
from Blood of the Ram (Eleven Thirty 2004) —I just dig the two-step groove of this one.

8:18am

Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials “Moratorium on Hate”
from Jump Start (Alligator 2012) N  —At first, I thought the idea of declaring a moratorium on hate was just silly pie-in-the-sky thinking, but damned if Lil' Ed doesn't convince me through this powerful driving song that at least it's worth a shot.

8:24am

Pelvic Girdles “Tweet”
from Sad Hammer (self 2011) L —Hey, maybe this one's about Twitter. Probably not, knowing Curt Hendricks as I do.

8:28am

Redd Kross “Researching the Blues” (Merge www.mergerecords.com 2012) —This isn't as great as classic Redd Kross was, but it's still pretty nice to have something even in the ballpark.

8:33am

Dwight Twilley Band “Rock and Roll 47”
from twilley don't mind (THE RIGHT STUFF 1977) —This level of pop/rock brilliance is impossible to resist.

8:37am

Thin Lizzy “Wild One”
from Dedication: The Very Best Of Thin Lizzy (Mercury 1991) —And opening riffs don't entice much better than this one.

8:41am

Paul Weller “When Your Garden's Overgrown”
from Sonik Kicks (Island 2012) N  —Weller can still knock out some pretty strong songs.

8:44am

The Frost “Black As Night”
from Best of the Frost (Vanguard 2003) —Of course this could only have come from Detroit in 1970.

8:48am

Paul McCartney “Eat At Home”
from Ram (Apple 1971) —So many great songs on Ram.

8:52am

The Clash “Train In Vain”
from London Calling CD Album (Epic 1979) —I remember my confusion when this track wasn't listed on the album jacket - I don't think I'd ever seen a bonus cut before, and the title was etched into the groove between the end of the song and the label.

8:55am

Carolina Chocolate Drops “Political World”
from Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan (Amnesty International 2012) N  —Great cover of a song I always liked from the album Infidels.

9:08am

The Viceroys “Yayo”
from The Viceroys at Studio One: Ya Ho (Heartbeat 1995) —16 men and a deadman's chest.

9:10am

Burning Spear “Tradition”
from Marcus Garvey (Mango 1975) —A reggae masterpiece - every song on this record is great.

9:16am

Bettye Swann “You Gave Me Love”
from The Money Recordings (Kent 1966) —One of the least heralded but sweetest of the many Bettys who made soul records in the 60s.

9:19am

James Carr “Pouring Water on a Drowning Man”
from The Essential James Carr (Razor & Tie 1995) —Another soul singer who could do no wrong, but isn't as famous as he should be.

9:22am

Major Lance “Get My Hat (Nothing Can Stop Me)”
from Everybody Loves a Good Time! The Best of Major Lance (Epic Legacy www.epicrecords.com 1995) —Curtis Mayfield wrote so many brilliant songs he could farm many of them off to other talented singers. Major Lance was one of his finest interpreters.

9:25am

Buddy Guy “Mother-In-Law Blues”
from I Left My Blues in San Francisco (Chess 1967) —Buddy Guy tells of woes most of us never have.

9:29am

Robert Cray Band “A Memo”

9:34am

from A Moment's Peace (Decca 2011) —Stunning and quietly exquisite.

9:44am

Jerry Douglas “Gone to Fortingal”
from Traveler (EOne 2012) N  —You take Jerry Douglas on dobro and Bela Fleck on banjo and all sorts of other great players and give them an entrancing Celtic/Indian crossover tune, you've got something great.

9:49am

John Prine “The Great Compromise”
from Diamonds in the Rough (Atlantic 1972) —Much to my surprise when I opened my eyes I was a victim of the great compromise.

9:53am

The Wandering “Sentimental Blues”
from Go On Now, You Can't Stay Here: Mississippi Folk Music, Vol. 3 (Songs of the South www.nmallstars.com/ 2012) N  —Amy Lavere sings a nice little ditty here.
