There’s nothing of any real importance going on today, except perhaps the closing of the football transfer window, so why not distract yourself by getting bored senseless by reading my weekly music shuffle?
What happens is that I go to my Man Cave and allow my music device to play ten of my many thousands of tunes at random, then I tell you what they are? Exciting? No, I thought not. So let’s rock!
- The Now Generation by Public Service Broadcasting. The wonderfully creative PSB from their great album Inform-Educate-Entertain.
- Nerio Compra Una Contestadora by Los Amigos Invisibles. From their excellent 1998 long player The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera. Mint.
- We’re An American Band by Grand Funk Railroad. Classic American hard rock, here.
- Take Me In Your Arms (live) by the Doobie Brothers. Somewhat belatedly the Doobies have finally been admitted to the rock and roll hall of fame. This is a live version of the Motown classic from their Live at Wolftrap album.
- Get My Party On by Shaggy. Typical Shaggy AKA Orville Burrell from Lucky Day, featuring Chaka Khan.
- Tulsa Town by Dwight Twilley. The greatest rocker you’ve never heard of from his brilliant 2011 album Soundtrack.
- Mantra by Jordan Rakei. Brilliant, absolutely gorgeous. Taken from his 2019 LP Origin. Very obviously the last track on the album. Love him.
- Beechwood Park by the Zombies. This is from the Zombies Pet Sounds album, Odessey and Oracle. Great record.
- 1967 by David Crosby. Croz from his 2018 record Here If You Listen. Still at the top of his game.
- Cuddly Toy by Harry Nilsson. Heavy Beatles influence in this 1967 gem.
That’s all, folks.
