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.
Aimee Mann “Disappeared”
from Charmer Single (Superego 2012) N —It was quite a pleasure to see her last week at the Pageant.
Wynonna “I Hear You Knockin'”
from Sing: Chapter 1 (Curb 2009) —Most people just don't have any idea how great this singer is.
The Vondrukes “Hung By Shame”
from EP (self 2011) L —Sometimes the Uncle Tupelo influence comes out big with these guys.
ZZ Top “My Mind Is Gone”
from Rhythmeen (RCA 1996) —I wonder very often why this album isn't universally acclaimed as one of the best things in the world?
Ann Peebles “I Can't Stand the Rain” (Hi Records 1974) —She left Kinloch, Missouri to make one of the best records ever, and a lot more really good ones besides
The Staple Singers “If It Ain't One Thing It's Another”
from City In the Sky (stax 1974) —The Staples tried valiantly to keep up with changing music trends - I think this could have made a nice movie theme back in the day.
Hank Crawford “Dat Dere”
from More Soul (Atlantic 1960) —An Oscar Brown, Jr. number delivered nicely by guys pulling out of Ray Charles' band for a sideline.
Loudon Wainwright III “Your Mother and I (live)”
from Career Moves (Virgin 1992) —Brian Wilson may not care about people's private lives being made public, but what if it's in the form of a song this poignant?
