It’s Friday, it’s wet and windy and I am sheltering in my Man Cave surrounded by an imaginary wall of Marshall speakers and it’s time to do my weekly iTunes music shuffle. So, despite public demand, here it is.
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends!
- One More Day (No word) by Todd Rundgren. A beauty from Todd’s essential Something/Anything record, from whence came his classic I Saw The Light.
- Cotton to the Bell by the High Llamas. Sean O’Hagan’s band always sound like how Brian Wilson might have gone after Smile. Lush.
- Baby Please Don’t go by Billy Gibbons and the BFGs. from the ZZ Top man’s Perfectamundo long player and perfectamundo it is.
- Neither One Of Us by Gladys Knight and the Pips. Not classic Gladys, but that voice. Wow!
- Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Another Day by the Monkees. From their first, eponymously titled album. Micky Dolenz sings and he’s the only Monkee to perform in this classic.
- Godwhacker by Steely Dan. From their final album in 2003, Everything Must Go, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker take a swipe at religious extremists.
- Rock and Roll Doctor by Little Feat. Lowell George and the boys on top form back in the day with a track from the epic Feats Don’t Fail Me Now record.
- Pursuit on 53rd Street by the Doobie Brothers. Classic Doobies from their excellent What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits record.
- Higher Love by Steve Winwood. A truly great Brit, is Steven AKA Stevie. One of the finest blue eye singers.
- Xale Rewmi by Youssou N’Dour. Brilliance from the Senegalese genius.
Hot on nostalgia this week! That’s all, folks!
