Time zone: central
The Clash “Somebody Got Murdered”
from Sandinista (Epic 1980) —Perhaps a less serious song would have been appropriate, but my gut takes me where it takes me.
The Faces “My Fault”
from Ooh La La (Warner Brothers 1973) —There aren't many bands who hit a career peak like this album, especially considering its only a little bit better than all the other stuff.
Jans Project “Apocalypse”
from preview (self 2015) N L —With members living in Champaign, IL and St. Louis, it takes this band longer to get things done, but those things are exquisite!
Pell Mell “Pound Cake”
from Interstate (Geffen 1995) —Brilliant instrumental rock combo from the 80s and 90s - they never sold much, but they should have.
Spoon “Rent I Pay”
from They Want My Soul (Lorna Vista 2014) N —It suddenly occurred to me that these guys might well have been influenced by Pell Mell a little bit.
One Direction “Spaces”
from Four (Columbia 2014) N —"Who's gonna be the first one to say goodbye?" Well, I guess that was Zayne.
Bobby Bare “The Ballad of Lucy Jordan”
from The Moon Was Blue (Dualtone 2005) —I know this song intimately in the Marianne Faithfull version, but Bare was always adept at covering Shel Silverstein songs, so it only makes sense to hear him do it, too.
Bettye LaVette “Step Away”
from Worthy (Anti- 2015) N —Reuniting with Joe Henry makes for the best music Ms. LaVette has done in several years.
The Wonder Stuff “Unfaithful”
from Hup (UMC 1989) —The fiddle from the last song matches the fiddle in this one.
John Renbourn “Three Pieces by O'Carolan”
from The Hermit (Transatlantic 1976) —RIP, guitar master. Some people prefer his sometime partner Bert Jansch, who was indeed great, but for my money, Renbourn was the Man!
July “Friendly Man”
from July (Rev-Ola 1968) —A very obscure psychedelic band from the late 60s that are well worth discovering.
The Kinks “Too Hot”
from Word Of Mouth (RCA / Legacy 1984) —This was an album I didn't pay near enough attention to when it was new - there is some good stuff here.
The Down-Fi “Why Me?”
from 7" (Cavetone 2014) N —They'll be playing at CBGB on Grand tomorrow night, and at Euclid Records tomorrow at 4 pm.
The Mavericks “Summertime (When I'm With You)”
from Mono (Decca 2015) N —Now that's a party. Let's dance.
