With Steve Pick
Love Sculpture In the Land of the Few
Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts From The British Empire And Beyond Rhino 2001
Dave Edmunds wasn't always a roots rocker. This was quite the forward-looking psychedelia in 1968.
The Rolling Stones Bitch
Sticky Fingers Rolling Stones Records 1971
This song seemed so transgressive when I was 12. It was the flip side of "Brown Sugar," and I thought I was so cool saying "Son of a b-side!"
Eric Ambel & Roscoe's Gang Miles From the Machine
Loud & Lonesome ESD 1995
I slept on this record when it was new, but when I finally found it a few years back - yowzah!
Donna The Buffalo Spinning World
Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday SUGAR HILL 2013
These guys always make me happy - such a bubbly groove.
Stephen Stills To a Flame
Stephen Stills Atlantic Records 1970
Lovely ballad from Stills' first solo record. Sounds influenced by Neil Young to me.
The Rides Kick Out of It N
Pierced Arrow Provogue 2016
Stephen Stills now. With Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg.
Brothers Osborne Stay a Little Longer N
Pawn Shop EMI Music Nashville (ERN) 2016
One of last year's greatest singles (which I didn't hear until early this year, thanks to Chuck Eddy loving it so much).
Son Little Nice Dreams N
Son Little Anti/Epitaph 2015
Grabs you right from the beginning and never lets go.
The Band Ain't No More Cane
The Basement Tapes Columbia 1975
Oh, man, those ragged harmonies kill me!
Brothers Lazaroff Day and Night L N
Day and Night self-released 2015
Every time I hear this song, I get swept up in its mystery and I want to hear it again.
John Cale Thoughtless Kind N
M:FANS Domino 2016
The more I listen to this record, the more amazed I am that John Cale can so radically revise his old material and yet still make it riveting to hear.
Brian Eno China My China
Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) Island Records 1974
Oh, how I love those old Eno records. Pop music from another universe, where a typewriter can play a solo.
Clarence "Frogman" Henry Ain't Go No Home
The Cosimo Matassa Story Proper 1956
This record rules because a) Frogman's hilarious vocals and b) that powerhouse New Orleans rhythm section.
Arthur Adams Let Me Love You Tonight
Motown's Blue Evolution Motown 1996
Not the most familiar of Motown cuts, but a nice little obscurity nonetheless.
Fontella Bass I Want Everybody to Know
The Jewel/Paula Soul Story Fuel 2000 2011
That sure sounds like Oliver Sain on sax to me - does anybody out there know if it is?
Wallace Bros. I Need Someone
From Chicago to Shreveport - Deep Soul, Vol. 1 Fuel 2000 2001
I don't know anything about these guys, but I know a good record when I hear one.
Bettye LaVette Let Me Down Easy
The Complete Calla, Port and Roulette Recordings Parlophone UK 2005
She just owns the songs she sings.
Lizz Wright Strange
The Orchard Verve Records 2008
I'd forgotten she covered this country gem.
Cave States Kingdom Come L N
True Life Undertow 2016
Fantastic new song from a terrific new record. Their CD release show is Sunday, Apr 3, at the Stage at KDHX.
Eleanor Friedberger A Long Walk
New View Frenchkiss 2016
One of the records I've turned to most in recent weeks - just delightful songs.
Jason & The Scorchers Land of the Free
Halcyon Times Jerkin' Crocus 2010
A way better song than I gave it credit for when it was new.
Uncle Tupelo So Called Friend L
No Depression (Legacy Edition) Columbia / Legacy
A rare co-writing credit for drummer Mike Heidorn on this one.
Kamikaze Cowboy Rose O'Sharon L
Hurry Sundown Cowboy Angel 1996
The late Bob Reuter led a lot of really good bands over the years. This was as great as any of them.
Teddy Thompson & Kelly Jones Only Fooling N
Little Windows Cooking Vinyl 2016
Two voices that blend beautifully together.
Dion I Ain't For It N
New York Is My Home Instant 2016
Dion's new album is probably his best in years - hard to say, since so many of them have been so good of late.
Brian Setzer Let's Shake
Rockabilly Riot! All Original SURFDOG 2014
One of our best guitar players doesn't get noticed because of his rockabilly persona, but man, that persona is fun, too.
Chris Isaak Please Don't Call N
First Comes The Night Vanguard 2015
Such a self-assured passion in his voice.
Bonnie Raitt I Knew N
Dig In Deep Red Wing Records 2016
Rock solid new record.
Continental Drifters Heart, Home
Vermilion Razor & Tie 1998
The single best album released in the 1990s.
Stackridge Pinafore Days
The Man In the Bowler Hat Edsel 1973
Beautiful and a bit odd.
Tim Finn Six Months In a Leaky Boat (Live)
Other Enz: Split Enz & Beyond Raven 1999
He co-wrote this classic, and I really like this solo version.
Loudon Wainwright III Choppers
Here Come The Choppers! Sovereign Artists 2005
That time when Loudon Wainwright had Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz play on his record.
Boo Hewerdine & Darden Smith Evidence
Evidence Chrysalis 1989
This album was so great, and yet even I had almost forgotten it completely.
Kate Bush Babooshka
Never For Ever EMI 1980
One of those songs that can only be done by the woman who wrote it.
The Wainwright Sisters Long Lankin N
Songs in the Dark PIAS 2015
Great cover of the Steeleye Span song - a nice murder ballad for bedtime.
Camper Van Beethoven Surprise Truck
Camper Van Beethoven IRS 1986
I love when Camper would get all psychedelic on us.
Joint Effort The Third Eye
Where the Action Is!: Los Angeles Nuggets 1965-1968 Rhino 2009
Rather Byrds-like, which is fine by me.
X It's Who You Know
Wild Gift Slash 1981
Billy Zoom's guitar still thrills me as soon as I hear it - as does the whole band.
Deadstring Brothers All Over Now
Starving Winter Report Bloodshot Records 2005
Wonder what these guys - or at least Kurt Marschke, the only permanent member of the band, is up to these days?
Carrie Rodriguez & The Sacred Hearts Frio en El Alma N
Lola Luz Records 2016
Ending on a gorgeous Mexican song.
