Friday Music Shuffle (19/5/17)

Welcome my friends to the show that never ends. Yes, it’s time for my weekly Friday random music shuffle live from my Man Cave.

Loud and proud, all the way from the People’s Republic of Stoke Gifford, ‘ere we go!

1. Exodus by Bob Marley and the Wailers. Not a bad start. 7 minutes plus of musical perfection.

2. Otra Vez by Los Amigos Invisibles. The fact that the cover of The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera album features a headless bikini clad lady is not the reason I was persuaded of the need to purchase this great record by the finest band from Venezuela. (Her head is not missing: it’s just been cropped from the photo.)

3. Gone Too Far by England Dan and John Ford Coley. When people ask who the first band/singer I ever saw live, my reply is Elton John but actually that’s not true. It was these two, who were supporting Elton. This isn’t their finest moment, though.

4. Saturday by East 57th Street. A bit of Friday House from one of my Rush Hour compilations.

5. I Remember You by Frank Ifield. 1962 FFS. What a voice.

6. Hello Mary Lou by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Faithful cover of the 1961 (!) Ricky Nelson classic by the great John Fogerty and his band.

7. Sweetest Goodbye by Maroon 5. From their first and best record, Songs About Jane.

8. Make It Easy on Yourself by the Walker Brothers. Classic Bacharach/David tune, sung beautifully by the still mighty Scott Walker.

9. Mirror, Mirror by Pinkerton’s Assorted Colours. Blimey – yet another sixties tune from one of my (many) sixties compilation albums.

10. Stay Awake by Field Music. Up to date with the mighty Field Music, this time from the wonderful Commontime long player.
