It’s time for the Friday Music Shuffle. 10 tunes played at random by my music machine and I tell you what they are. If you want to play along, then just click on the title!
- Let It Roll by Little Feat. Post Lowell George but with added Craig Fuller and Fred Tackett, this is a great song from a great album.
- Song For A Dying Planet by Joe Walsh. The great man sings about the environment.
- Dancing In The Street by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. Some truly great Motown. Music doesn’t get any better.
- Rock Me Gently by Andy Kim. Andy may have only been a one-hit wonder, but what a one-hit, as he does his best Neil Diamond impression.
- That Was Your Brother by Paul Simon. From Simon’s epic 1986 album, Graceland.
- Like I Never Loved You At All by Take That. The classic Take That line-up, meaning the one without Robbie Williams, from their best album, the 2006 belter Beautiful World.
- In My Dreams by Crosby, Stills and Nash. A lovely Crosby tune from 1977’s CSN.
- Come And Go Blues by the Allman Brothers Band. 1973’s Brothers and Sisters yielded the classic Jessica and Ramblin’ Man, as well as five other great songs including this one. Easily my favourite Allman Bros album.
- Bitters End by Roxy Music. Absolutely bonkers tune that closed out the band’s first album, 1972’s Roxy Music.
- Roll Away The Stone by Mott the Hoople. Ian Hunter’s boys had a golden period in the 1970s, making some great records and this was right up with the best of them. Little known fact: Lynsey de Paul features in the bridge!
That’s all, folks!
