Beth Rowley - Almost Persuaded

Knocks me out, she's young but a very soulful and gifted artist!

One Fine Morning-Lighthouse (STEREO)

Some used to call them Canada's version of Chicago --- but they were so much better, in vocals and horn charts in particular. Their drummer Skip I knew from the old days when he was in The Paupers.
I heard/saw them do this live and the tune just hits you and takes you for a such a great musical ride. The popularity of so-called Rock Fusion or Jazz Rock was very short lived but...this is a gem of a tune and lives on.

Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton - If Teardrops Were Pennies.flv

‎...and her's that little bit of Dolly with the ever sparklin' besuited Porter!


T'aint a good Sunday goofin' off unless I trawl through the world wide interweb thing a-lookin' for songs by Tammy and Dolly....

Baloji - Le jour d'apres/ Siku ya baadaye (Independence cha-cha)

This about as deep in the jungle of Rap that I gits......but he's a good'un!

Jackie Wilson - This Bitter Earth

Another great interpretation of the classic we know I'm such a huge fan of Mr. Wilson's work and for our amigo Tereza Bell-Tzannatou

Irma Thomas - This Bitter Earth

Yes, I know Aretha did this tune first but...last night we went to see Irma and she was soul stirringly awesome! At 70 she was in fine voice and great humor then when leaving the stage after going strong and taking requests from us her audience and fans, she winced dramatically as she made her stage exit. You'd have never known from her performance --- she truly shone as bright as any diamond star and her title Queen of New Orleans Show as never more apt and fitting. Thank you Irma for bring your soul and your heart to us on a very blue Sunday in London town.

Ringo Starr It Don't Come Easy live

Music down memory lane......I was there...truth! I was working PR for cross country chain of radio stations owned by Merv Griffin at the time!

John Grant - It's Easier (Strongroom Session)

A winner of Mojo's Live Act award and one of the best albums of last year,' Queen of Denmark' that is never off my turntable!

Over the Rhine "The Laugh of Recognition"

Just a super song by some folks who have been getting better each year and over a 20 year history of listening to them...I think this one is the best yet!

Black Snake Moan - Blind Lemon Jefferson

Ah yes it's Mr. Blind Lemon's birthday today....and though I do like his Blues, I don't think he's singing about any kind of reptilian troubles!

NEIL YOUNG - Mr. Soul (Video)

Never got to see the Buffalo Springfield do this tune but I did see this one...and was in the audience on the '71 Massey Hall recorded live concert!

Curtis Mayfield - Move On Up

Just one of the greatest song poets, Curtis Mayfield! And this song just had to be number one on my
Friday's Gonna Make You Smile playlist!

Love Abides. Iris Dement & Tom Russell.wmv

A pretty song -- sadly the word pretty has fallen into the "very trite" category these days...but that's just what this is in the true sense of the word. So yes listen love and catch your falling star. I did!!!

Crooked Fingers - Sleep All Summer

This is on my Songs of Summer iPoddy Playlist....because it creates such a very real picture of..well of a summer that you've lost a the whole sunny days stretch out in front of you but feel so empty and lacking!
