Richard Thompson Band “Shoot Out the Lights”
from More Guitar (Beeswing 2003) —This album contains a complete 1988 concert from one of Richard's best bands - sure, I'd rather have Dave Mattacks, but Kenny Aronoff subbed pretty well.

8:17am

Meshell Ndegeocello “Feeling Good”
from Pour une âme souveraine - A Dedication to Nina Simone (Naive 2012) —One of the things that made Nina Simone so great was her ability to take anybody's song and completely reshape it to her own devices. Ndegeocello can do that, too, making this a rare tribute that matches the skills of the originator.
