Time zone: central
Procol Harum “Shine On Brightly” (A&M 1968) —Everything comes together on this, keyboards, vocals, guitar - what a great band.
David Johansen “Frenchette”
from David Johansen (Razor & Tie www.razorandtie.com 1978) —Let's just dance! I stole this idea from Bob Reuter, who posted an incredible live version he found on youtube. This album was one of the first I fell in love with in my nascent new wave days back in 78, with the radio barely picking up KWUR every weekend
Richard Barone “1-2-3. . . Infinity”
from The Glow (Bar/None Records www.bar-none.com 2010) N —1-2-3 . . . infinity and all the stuff in between. That's a lot of stuff. Brings me back to when I was 7 or 8, and some older kid was holding court on the subject of infinity.
Tom Verlaine “Cry Mercy, Judge”
from Flash Light (I.R.S. 1987) —First track on my fave post-Television solo record by one of America's greatest songwriters/guitarists.
Heart “There You Go”
from Red Velvet Car (Eagle 2010) N —I'm not really sure that a velvet car is practical. But it makes for a good record.
Leonard Cohen “That Don't Make It Junk”
from Songs From the Road (Columbia 2010) N —I fought against the bottle but I had to do it drunk / Took my diamond to the pawn shop but that don't make it junk.
Neil Young “Surfer Joe & Moe the Sleaze”
from Re-ac-tor (Reprise 1981) —More cowbell kicks off with this under-recognized gem from Neil Young.
Humble Pie “The Fixer”
from Smokin' (A&M Records 1972) —Humble Pie probably belong in the cowbell hall of fame for devotion above & beyond the call of duty to that little clanger.
Raul Malo “Sinners & Saints” (Fantasy 2010) N —I like an album that opens with a great fanfare.
JJ Grey & Mofro “The Sweetest Thing”
from Georgia Warhorse (Alligator 2010) N —Papa Ray convinced me to check these guys out - very sweet & soulful. They'll be at Taste of St. Louis one week from tonight.
Big Star “Feel”
from #1 Record (Ardent 1972) —Looking forward to an excellent evening at Off Broadway tonight as all sorts of local musicians pay tribute to Alex Chilton.
