R.L. Burnside - "See My Jumper Hanging On the Line"
James Brown, I was lucky enough to see him in his prime. A great showman. Saw him in Vietnam, in fact the night he put on a show in An Khe, there was a rocket attack and the show was stopped.
"Down the Road Wherever" - Mark Knopfler
This is Badass.
Tom Petty influence?
That was badass, Manny!
Blues Traveler's "Run Around." In my head. For the last two weeks, constantly. God, please make it stop. I have no idea where I get them. Probably heard it at the grocery store or pumping gas or something. "The Power of Love" snuck in there for a few hours last week, but it didn't last long.
Sarah Shook And The Disarmers -The Nail
An "Only in the Bay Area" phenomenon. Mickey Hart's first solo album, featuring members of all the major SF bands of the day (Dead, Airplane, Quicksilver, Big Brother, Sly & the Family Stone, Barry "the Fish" Melton, Sons of Champlin, Tower of Power horns) with Zakir Hussain on tabla, Carmelo Garcia on timbales. Eclectic and weird, with some awesome moments.
When I was in grad school in Windsor, ON in the late-80s early 90s, I received a musical education from WDET in Detroit. Eclecticism! I especially enjoyed listening to the Martin Bandyke show in the afternoons and Ann Delisi.
I just finished listening to Ann Delisi's Best of 2018 playlist on Spotify. Good stuff. Opening with some African "desert blues" type stuff from Bombino. I especially liked "Groovy Babe" by Durand Jones and the Indications.
Hank Garland - Jazz Winds From a New Direction - currently playing - Always.
No Gretsch but dang!
If this doesn't give you emotions, nothing will.
I must be the only person that doesn't like that version of Sound of Silence. It just doesn't do it for me. I like some of their stuff though.
Bittersweet - Hoodoo Gurus
Came across a weird one late last night----The HU Band---Mongolian heavy metal. 3 guys playing a total of eight strings.
Other than that---Lake Street Dive.
I've just discovered Lee Hazlewood. I would have hated this music when I was 16...now that I'm freakin' "old" I am drawn to it....
