2015: The Best?- "THE WEEKEND MIX"
A little more than halfway through 2015 and my "Best Of The Year" list is looking bleak. I don't even like some of my favorite records so far. But I'm staying positive because that's how I roll.
Anyway, here are a dozen tunes I do really like from records released this year. In some cases, the songs do not represent albums I like. As you have read on these pages, I do not like Todd Rundgren's "Global," but I do like the song "Terra Firma."
But, definitely in the running for my faves of the year are Boz Scaggs, Kamasi Washington, The London Souls, FFS and Rickie Lee Jones.
New records from Wilco, Galactic, Jon Cleary and David Gilmour are on the horizon. But until then, here's what interests me.
She- Dwight Yoakam
Call Girl- FFS
I'm So Proud- Boz Scaggs
Alone- The London Souls
You're The Best Lover- Steve Earle
Hotel Blue -Jim O'Rourke
Going My Way- Paul Weller
Have I Got It Wrong- Bop English
Feet On The Ground- Rickie Lee Jones
Terra Firma- Todd Rundgren
Attics Of My Life- Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams
Clair de Lune- Kamasi Washington
