The Sights “Bad Man”
from Left Over Right (HRM 2011) —I guess I just don't understand how I'm made out to be the bad man when I'm just doing what I could. Is it no good?
Levon Helm “Wide River to Cross”
from Dirt Farmer (Vanguard 2007) —Buddy & Julie Miller wrote this gem which is becoming a modern classic - no better version than this one, though.
Aaron Griffin and Mojo Rising “Phone Booth”
from Mojo Rising (self-released 2012) N L —This 17-year-old St. Louis kid has no business playing guitar and singing this Robert Cray song with this much fire and imagination. Sure, his dad's been a fixture on the blues scene for years, but this is surprisingly great stuff.
The Linemen “Dust and Despair”
from Reconsider (self 2009) L —It was cool to see these guys reunite for the KDHX celebration a few weeks back.
Benny Andersson Band “Story of a Heart” (Decca 2009) —This brilliant album snuck out three years ago, and I only just heard it about it a few weeks back. It's got a lot of different facets, including this song, which is quite possibly as great as anything he ever did in ABBA.
Brothers Lazaroff “She Loves to Dance”
from Science Won (self-released 2012) N L —Subconscious does it again - there's a line in here, "like watching stars collide," which undoubtedly made me play this after the previous song.
Dan Bern “Haarlem”
from Drifter (self 2012) N —One of our finest songwriters continues to toil in obscurity, but man, listen to this song.
Darden Smith “Over My Beating Heart”
from Marathon (Darden Music 2010) —A lot of talented folks put their albums out themselves now that bigger labels don't remember them.
