With Steve Pick
Them I Can Only Give You Everything
Them Again Parrot 1966
This is one heck of a great record that has never failed to get me excited.
The Easybeats You, Me, We Love
Friday On My Mind: The Very Best Of The Easybeats Varese Sarabande 2003
Even their obscurities were great.
Dion I'm All Rocked Up N
New York Is My Home Instant 2016
I believe he turned 76 years old just yesterday, and he hasn't lost anything in terms of singing.
The Coral Connector N
Distance Inbetween Ignition Records 2016
One of the best bands to come out of England this century.
Temples Sun Structures
Sun Structures Heavenly Recordings 2014
We are not sounding sleepy at all this morning, are we?
Thao & The Get Down Stay Down Give Me Peace N
A Man Alive Ribbon Music 2016
I don't know why I resisted her before, but this new record has its hooks into me.
Gazebos Not Allowed N
Die Alone Hardly Art 2016
I don't know much about these guys, but this album has a few songs that pricked up my ears.
Brian Andrew Marek Captain Captain L N
"Drowner" Rubberstamp 2016
Marek keeps on churning 'em out, and I keep on digging his songwriting.
Schramms Walk to Delphi
Walk to Delphi East Side Digital 1995
I don't remember a lot about this band, but I'll take those brightly chiming guitars and a strong melodic sense anytime.
The Byrds The World Turns All Around Her
Turn! Turn! Turn! Columbia Records 1965
See previous comment, except I do remember a lot about this band.
House of Brunettes 700 Miles
Life In Stereo RittLaboratories 2013
These guys have recorded so much great material, I still haven't been able to grasp just how good they really are. But I'm loving the attempt.
Generation X Wild Youth
Perfect Hits 1975-1981 Parlophone UK 1985
Oh, the number of times we sang the hook of this song when those kids about five years younger than us started getting all punk rock in the early 80s.
Accelerando Election Polls L N
Accelerando! self-released 2016
I love the urgency in this song.
Rev. Sekou & the Holy Ghost We Comin L
The Revolution Has Come Elevate 2016
Speaking of urgency.
Charles Bradley Changes
Changes Dunham 2016
Who ever noticed there was a soulful burst of anguish buried in this Black Sabbath song waiting to be released?
Aretha Franklin Day Dreaming
Young, Gifted and Black Atlantic 1971
One of my fave songs from Aretha's golden era.
Food Ninja Tune 2014
Kelis didn't get nearly enough attention for putting out such a magnificent record two years ago.
Desmond Dekker & The Aces 007 (Shanty Town)
Israelites - The Best of Desmond Dekker Trojan 2002
This song is now 50 years old. Yeah, you heard me.

If I have this straight, that's Jimmy Rushing on vocals.

This song is crazy, man, crazy!
Jerry Reed The Claw
The Essential Jerry Reed RCA/BMG 1995
One of the great guitar cuts!
Pistol Annies Don't Talk About Him, Tina
Annie Up RCA 2013
Don't talk about him, Tina, best thing he ever did was leave ya!
Wynonna & The Big Noise Jesus and a Jukebox
Wynonna & The Big Noise Curb Records, Inc. 2016
Wynonna Judd doesn't get enough respect as one of the finest vocalists working today.
Carly Simon Slave
Playing Possum Elektra 1975
Such a powerful record.
Eleanor Friedberger Sweetest Girl N
New View Frenchkiss 2016
I realized last night that Friedberger's voice reminds me of a cross between Rosanne Cash and Madonna. No wonder I like this record (which doesn't stylistically ape either of those two).
Squeeze Sunny N
Cradle to the Grave Virgin EMI 2015
A simply delightful song about growing up with music.
Villagers The Soul Serene N
Where Have You Been All My Life? Domino 2016
Carolina Chocolate Drops Mahalla
Leaving Eden Nonesuch 2012
A short instrumental that fit for time, but makes an interesting juxtaposition, too.
Earwacks / Wax Theatricks Annies Premise (Live)
33 1/3 Live At the Gaslight Theater Wax Theatricks Records 2012
Great St. Louis band that did this one last performance a few years ago, and released a wonderful DVD document. And, hey, I'm interviewed in it.
Dungen Allas Sak
Allas Sak Mexican Summer 2015
Swedish band with no obvious precursors.
Palaver Margie Anderson L N
Palaver self-released 2015
One of my fave records in recent months. Also - "Says she's from Sweden but hates it up north." Subconscious connection to previous song.
Janis Joplin To Love Somebody (Live)
The Woodstock Experience Columbia 2009
Wonderful deep soul take on the Bee Gees.
Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes Reality N
Soultime Leroy 2015
Southside goes all Curtis Mayfield here.
The O'Jays For the Love of Money
Ship Ahoy Philadelphia International 1973
The Rolling Stones Casino Boogie
Exile On Main Street Rolling Stone Records 1972
This record just keeps on giving, doesn't it?
Billy Swan I Can Help
Rock This Town: Rockabilly Hits 2 Rhino 1991
One of those great old songs you forget about until you're reminded just how cool it still sounds.
The Collins Kids Rock Boppin Baby
Introducing Larry and Lorrie Collectors Series 1958
These two had to be the coolest kids of the late fifties. Sorry, Jerry Mathers.
Shirley & Lee i'm gone
Spirit Of New Orleans: The Genius Of Dave Bartholomew Imperial 1992
I'd forgotten these two started recording all the way back in the early fifties.
The Impacts Canadian Sunset
The Doo Wop Box II: 101 More Vocal Group Gems Rhino 1996
As weird a production as doo wop ever got - sometimes, I think this genre was the avant-garde.
Billy Bragg Sexuality
Must I Paint You a Picture?: The Essential Billy Bragg Elektra
Billy has some fun in this song.
Bob Mould Hands Are Tied
Patch the Sky Merge 2016
A rocker from Mould's new record.
Thee Fine Lines Leave You Far Behind L
Splittin Time Wee Rock Records 2015
Great semi-local garage band.
Etta James You Know What I Mean
Hickory Dickory Dock Ace 1998
Not one of her most famous, but a great early cut nonetheless.
