That old iPod is shuffling once again and here is this week’s offering:
1. Once Again by Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush. If you think you can hear echoes of Jimi Hendrix, then you are not paying attention because Frank is essentially a Hendrix tribute act, albeit with his own tunes. This one comes from the Child of the Novelty record.
2. Sara by Bob Dylan. “Stayin’ up for days in the Chelsea Hotel, writin’ sad-eyed lady of the lowlands for you.” Desire one of my favourite records by his Royal Bobness.
3. Evil Wind by Bad Company. The riff is reminiscent of Rory Gallagher’s Walk on hot coals, but the overall effect is still Paul Rodgers and (Bad) company.
4. The Equaliser by the Clash. Heavy dub here from the Sandanista album.
5. That’s what she said last night by the Saw Doctors. From To win just once, Ireland’s finest in action.
6. R U sleeping (bump and flex remix) by Indo. One of the kids here.
7. Yes I’m changing by Tame Impala. From Currents. You do have this one, don’t you?
8. He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother by the Hollies. Heartbreaking lyric, Allan Clarke’s finest moment.
9. Apocalypse Dreams by Tame Impale (again). This time from Lonerism.
10. Closing Time by Talc. A cross between Steely Dan and the Bonzo Dog Band, from Licensed Premises Lifestyle, this is truly wonderful.
