That Friday Music Shuffle - 2.2.18

I can almost sense your feelings of apathy as I once again set lose the iPod (ask your parents’, kids) and allow it to shuffle out a bunch of tunes. Yes – it’s self-indulgence Friday.

Welcome my friends to the show that never ends!

Let’s rock!

1. Another Chance by Roger Sanchez. An entire dance tune based upon a sample of Toto’s I Won’t Hold You Back. Rather nice, actually.

2. Don’t Cry Sister by JJ Cale and Eric Clapton. My loyal listener will know how I feel about Clapton – desperately overrated when he does anything beyond play guitar – but this effort with JJ from their Road to Escondido long player is nice.

3. There’s a Kind of Hush by Herman’s Hermits. On a point of vital information, Herman was actually Peter Noone and the Hermits did not live in crab shells.

4. Rag Top Down by Little Feat. Their latest and almost certainly last album Rooster Rag, featuring a bunch of songs co-written by Grateful Dead man Robert Hunter and this is one of them. Hardly Dixie Chicken, but gracefully they go to retirement.

5. Don’t Fear the Reaper by the Blue Oyster Cult. The band’s entire catalogue is on my iPod and yet the only song that anyone else knows comes up on the shuffle. Of course, it’s great but so is all of their music.

6. If She Called by David Crosby. Showing incredible staying power and late career creativity, this brilliant tune is from his Croz record. Essential.

7. Colour Blind by Ronnie Montrose. After his death from prostate cancer, Ricky Phillips from Styx set about finishing his final album 10×10 and what a great rock album it is. This beauty features Sammy Hagar and Steve Lukather.

8. Poor Leno by Royksopp. Simply gorgeous from their mouth-wateringly perfect Melody AM. The best of Norway (along with Todd Terje).

9. Music for Money by Nick Lowe. A proper British music legend with a cracker from his Jesus of Cool record.

10. Strangers Room by David Crosby and Graham Nash. “Where do I go from here? Help me – I wish I could disappear and go away.” I’ve felt like that a few times.

That’s all, folks.
