1. Nathaniel Rateliff - "Brakeman"
In Memory of Loss (2010)
A fine selection off of my favorite album so far this year.
2. Parlor Hawk - Every Bone.mp3
Buy: Hoarse and Roaring (2010)
Off of an interesting album from a Salt Lake City area band.
3. Frontier Ruckus - "Dark Autumn Hour"
The Orion Songbook (2008)
4. Jimmy Bo Horne - "Spank"
Single (orig. 1979)
A co-worker of mine gave me this tune once as it was his favorite disco era tune. This is the closest I could find to what I once had. Good stuff.
5. Budgie - "Napoleon Bona Parts 1 & 2"
Classic Brit hard rock from Welsh aces Budgie. Play loud.
6. The Golden Palominos - "I've Been The One"
A History (1986)
Lovely version of the Lowell George classic. That's Syd Straw on vocals and Dennis Hopper at the beginning "a little louder and a little more confused..."
7. The Babys - "If You've Got The Time"
The Babys (1976)
8. The dBs - Molly Says.mp3
From: Sound of Music (1987, out of print)
My favorite dBs/Holsapple song…love the line:
“She could stand at the top of the world
And still complain that she could not see
She could stand in a deep dark hole
And still look down on me”
9. Boston Spaceships - Come On Baby Grace.mp3
Buy: Our Cubehouse Still Rocks (2010)
IMHO, this song reaches the heights of some of GBV's best material.
10. Miracle Legion - "With a Wish"
'90s jangle pop at its finest.
11. Three Dog Night - "Liar"
