Songs Of The Week, 2019: 6/8-6/14
Rip It Up- Orange Juice
Merely A Man- XTC
My Way- The Who
Where Do the Children Play- Horace Andy
Who Needs You So Bad- Lil Bob & The Lollipops
Nobody- Kaliedoscope w/Johnny Guitar Watson and Larry Williams
Bittersweetheart- Soul Asylum
No backstory on most these songs of last week, aside from a random need to hear them.
A few quick notes:
Picked up a small but potent collection of vintage reggae records that I have been enjoying immensely. One record, "Skylarking" by Horace Andy is particulartly wonderful, as is his take on the Cat Stevens tune here.
The Kaleidoscope track with JGW and Larry Williams, is without question, one of my favorite records ever!
Doesn't The Who's Eddie Cochran cover sound more like a Roger Daltrey solo track?
One last thought on Soul Asylum's "Let Your Dim Light Shine," discussed last week. This, from my old pal, Brother Mike- "I LOVE THAT FUCKING ALBUM!" Me, too, Brother Mike,. Me, too.
