That Friday Music Shuffle (5/1/18)

It’s still 2018 and, despite popular demand, the Friday morning shuffle is back to national non acclaim.

Yes, I’m back in my Man Cave once more to let the iPod do it’s thang.

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends.

1. Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Staton. What a cracking start to this week’s music shuffle.

2. We’ll Never Have To Say Goodbye Again by England Dan and John Ford Coley. Gentle country/pop music from the early seventies, these boys were the support act at the first gig I ever went to, Elton John at the Bristol Colston Hall on the Madman Across the Water tour something like 45 years ago. So actually the first live act I ever saw.

3. Out On The Weekend by Neil Young. Sheer greatness from the epic Harvest album. The album also features Crosby, Stills and Nash, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor and the London Symphony Orchestra. Indispensable.

4. Get My Party On by Shaggy. Crackling tune which features the mighty Chaka Khan.

5. The Boys Are Back in Town by Thin Lizzy. The song some of us begged Bristol Rovers to adopt when, back in the 1990s, we moved back to Bristol after exile in Bath. Our pleas fell on deaf ears but I still see it as a huge mistake and it would have been a cracking walk out tune.

6. Wham Bam Thank You M’am by the Small Faces. “Shang a lang a shang a doo lay shang a lang,” sings Steve Marriott and you know exactly what he means! Great band.

7. Summer’s Gone by the Beach Boys. From the dire That’s Why God Made the Radio (he didn’t) album which I may need to delete from iTunes, I’m afraid this stinks.

8. Tomahawk Kid (Live) by the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Sensationally bonkers.

9. Keep it Simple by Delays. From their brilliant Everything’s the Rush album, this is gorgeous. Main man Greg Gilbert is incapacitated with cancer and the prognosis is not great. Such a wonderfully talented man and band.

10. In the Now by Barry Gibb. From the album of the same name, Sir Bazza still making new music. It’s not peak Bee Gees and the great man says the letter S as Sh these days. Pretty decent though.

That’s all, folks.
