Artist Track Comments
Trudy Pitts & Pat Martino  Organology   Options  
Jonathan Richman  He Gave Us The Wine To Taste   Options His new album on Vapor. 
Big Sandy & The Fly Rite Boys  Chalk It Up To The Blues   Options Seeing this band live recently (in Reno) gave me a new respect for them. First- it's just refreshing to see a band where the drummer (and the beat) do not dominate the sound. Second - the guy is a good singer. Third - the songs are original and the lyrics are more complex then I thought... 
Ronald Mesquita  Blance Pema   Options  
Ernest Tubb  Thirty Days   Options Nice to hear a Chuck Berry song not sound like a Chuck Berry song. 
Beats (?)  I'll Have To Find Another Girl   Options Always loved this song from "The Merseyside Sound" LP on the "Stereo Spectrum Records" label. The copyright says 1962 - but there are covers of Beatle songs from 1963 & '64. It says on the label: "In Authentiphonic Stereo Process" - I believe it!
Photo of the LP here!
Belle & Sebastian  Your Secrets   Options From a new EP "Books".
The Fabulous Flames  Holly Holy   Options A 45 on Clancy's records. 
Peggy Lee  It's A Good Day   Options Saw a PBS documentary on her. Got me interested. 
The People's Choice  I Like To Do It   Options I think this was used for the bed of the De La Soul song "Tread Water"... 
Cheap Trick  California Man   Options Remastered - you can really hear the 12 string bass! 
Ferlin Husky  My Reason For Living   Options  
Willie Brown & Woody D.  Ventriloquist Rap   Options Goofy New comp "The Third Unheard - Connecticut Hip Hop 1979-83" on the Stones Throw label. 
Lord Creator  Paint Up, Clean Up Time   Options  
Little Jimmy Scott  The Way You Look Tonight   Options New 3 cd set "The Savoy Years". 
Rockin Sidney  You Aint Nothin But Fine   Options  
Beastie Boys  Ch-Check It Out   Options I like this new lp much better then their last one. 
Junior Brown  Peelin Taters   Options From Mars?

Elvis Costello  Night Time   Options  
Mighty Sparrow  Russian Satellite   Options  
Mighty Sparrow  Wood In The Fire   Options 2 for tuesday 
The Crickets  I'm Not A Bad Guy   Options When Buddy Holly died this band lost their identity. Their search for a new one is documented on the 30 track best of The Liberty Years, where you can hear them trying out different forms of rock & roll, from Texas Rock to Stones inspired rock to the poppyest pop. It's interesting. Jerry Alison is a really under-rated drummer. 
Carl Smith  Go Boy Go   Options  
Galt McDermott  Hair   Options  
Freedy Johnson  Changed Your Mind   Options  
Nick Lowe  Raining Raining   Options Didnt mean to play this song at this point in the show.... oh well, there are worse things. BTW: Nick will be on tour in September.

NRBQ  Crazy Eights   Options My love for this band is no secret. They can do it all, as this recorded live track shows! 
Del Shannon  For A Little While   Options #1 in my house this week. 
Conway Twitty  Double Talk Baby   Options  
The Charioteers  A Slip Of The Lip Can Sink A Ship   Options  
Jimmy Bryant  Ha-So   Options  
Jimmy Bryant  Serenade To A Frog   Options  
Oscar Peterson Trio with Clark Terry  Mumbles   Options 45 on Mercury 
Merle Haggard  Fightin' Side Of Me   Options Enjoyed his chat w/ Jones this week on Jonesville Station. If you didnt catch it, check out the archive.

Oz Mutantes  She's My Shoo Shoo   Options 1971

Steve Pepper & Sir Shree  Elephant's Trunk   Options
