That Friday Music Shuffle (1/12/17)

Pinch, punch, it’s the first day of the month. Depressingly, despite the beautiful blue skies over Bristol, it is also the first day of the meteorological winter, so the SAD bastards among us can look forward to plenty of darkness. Roll on 1st March. Anyway, let’s get to business.

My loyal reader will know that Friday is the day on which I set my elderly iPod to random shuffle, pumping up the volume through my state of the art (yeah, right) music system. So, welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. Yes, live from my Man Cave, it’s the Friday Music Shuffle.

1. We Will Look Away by Lisa Mychols. To intents and purposes, this is a Christmas record, but don’t let that put you off. It’s a high class album, featuring Darian Sahanaja and various other wonderful Wondermints.

2. Burger Song by Skee Low. America’s one hit wonder Skee Low (I Wish), here’s a half decent piece of rap from the album of the same name as the one hit.

3. One Way Out (Live) by the Allman Brothers Band. From the essential Eat A Peach record, here’s a cracking chunk of blues written by Elmore James, Marshall Sehorn and Sonny Boy Williamson II featuring the soaring guitar work of Dickey (Call me Richard) Betts.

4. Pyjamarama by Roxy Music. From 1973, comes some epic Roxy. And I saw the original line up including Brian Eno the same year. An incredible live outfit.

5. Meet Her at the Love Parade by Da Hool. Some old school German house from 20 years ago.

6. Sugar Sugar by John Fogerty. Latter day Fogerty, here’s a gentle country romp from his Deja Vu all over again LP.

7. All Around The World Or The Myth Of Fingerprints by Paul Simon. Truly wonderful. Everyone should own a copy of Graceland.

8. Private Eyes by Hall and Oates. Not as blue eye as usual but what a pop song!

9. Helen Wheels by Def Leppard. Astonishing cover of the Macca tune from the astonishing and increasingly essential Art of McCartney record.

10. Ohio by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Live from…gulp…1974, here’s the lacerating story of the Kent State shootings told with unbelievable power by a band at their peak.

That’s all, folks.
