Talking Heads People Like Us
True Stories (Bonus Track Version) Sire 1986
When David Byrne went country. Sort of.
Donna the Buffalo I Won't Be Looking Back N
Dance in the Street Donna the Buffalo 2018
Nobody else sounds like these guys, and they've been great for at least 25 years.
Jason Ringenberg John the Baptist Was a Real Humdinger N
Stand Tall Courageous Chicken Entertainment 2019
Some pretty fun Bible studies here. I think my Sunday School teacher back in 1971 would approve.
The Long Ryders What the Eagle Sees N
Psychedelic Country Soul Cherry Red Records 2019
This new album sounds like it could've come out right after their last one (in 1987), but without the 80s production issues.
Dave Edmunds Don't You Double
Information Arista 1983
This album disappointed me when it was released, but there are some great songs here.
Emmylou Harris & the Nash Ramblers Guitar Town
At the Ryman Reprise 1991
I saw this band twice - simply incredible!
Joe Louis Walker, Bruce Katz, Giles Robson Real Gone Lover N
Journeys to the Heart of the Blues Alligator 2018
Every cut on this album crackles with acoustic blues energy and power.
Lee Fields & The Expressions You're What's Needed In My Life N
It Rains Love Big Crown Records 2019
Another of the very fine veteran soul singers finding an audience at last.
Irma Thomas Save a Little Bit For Me
A Woman's Viewpoint - The Essential 1970s Recordings Kent 2006
This compilation cheats to include this 1969 gem from one of the world's greatest soul singers.
Yola Deep Blue Dream N
Walk Through Fire Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch 2019
The more I hear her, the more I think she's a major talent.
The Good, The Bad & The Queen The Great Fire N
Merrie Land Studio 13 2018
An album I didn't expect to enjoy as much as I did.
The Specials B.L.M N
Encore UMC (Universal Music Catalogue) 2019
Lynval Golding tells of his and his father's experiences with racism as they left Jamaica for whiter climes.
Cass McCombs Sleeping Volcanoes N
Tip of the Sphere Anti/Epitaph 2019
I could see these guys opening for Crosby.
David Crosby Buddha on a Hill
Here If You Listen BMG 2018
Crosby's late career brilliance is a stunning inspiration.
Tom Verlaine Words from the Front
Words From the Front Rhino/Warner Bros. 1982
Verlaine wrote this song (and others on the album) based on letters home from soldiers in WWI.
Grant Hart Glorious
The Argument Domino Recording Co Ltd 2013
A terrific song from the late Mr. Hart.
Robert Fripp I May Not Have Had Enough of Me But I've Had Enough of You
Exposure EG 1979
I believe this is sung by Peter Hammill.
Gary Clark Jr. Gotta Get Into Something N
This Land Warner Bros. 2019
If this song had been on an import 7 inch in 1978, it would have been a punk rock masterpiece by now. This caught me completely by surprise!
Melody Den Points in Between L N
Pull, Then Push Perdition Records 2019
I get pumped up every time I hear this excellent record.
The Beths Great No One N
Future Me Hates Me Carpark Records 2018
One of the most interesting young bands to come along in some time - they don't invent anything new, but they do what they do very well.
Thin White Rope Lithium
Exploring the Axis Frontier 1985
I remember seeing them at Mississippi Nights when this album was new - there were only half a dozen of us in the crowd, but we were enthralled!
Steely Dan Babylon Sisters
Gaucho Geffen* Records 1980
Something weird in my brain told me to play this song next.
Big Star Stroke It Noel
Third/Sister Lovers Ryko 1975
The third album by Big Star, or the first solo album by Alex Chilton, is one of the most messed up but wonderful records I know.
Brian Andrew Marek Not Impressed! L N
Haunted Rubberstamp 2018
As Brian prepares to release a brand new album, let's still enjoy this last collection of previously unreleased older songs.
Cat Stevens Here Comes My Baby
Rushmore (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Island Records 1967
I often forget it's Cat Stevens who did this classic - it's so different from his later, more famous material.
Harry Nilsson I'll Never Leave You
Nilsson Schmilsson RCA Records Label 1971
I just never get tired of hearing this guy sing his wonderful songs.
Waxahatchee You Left Me with an Ocean
Great Thunder - EP Merge Records 2018
I not only enjoy her music, I like to say her name.
Richard & Linda Thompson I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight
Live at the BBC Universal 2011
Great live rendition of one of the greatest songs in the world.

Lolita Nation Omnivore Recordings 1987
Classic from the late great Scott Miller.
