      Playlist for Memphis to Manchester on February 08, 2007

      Key: Artist - Title - Album - +=Request *=New
      [Notes]

      Sam Cooke - Bring It On Home To Me - One Night Stand! Sam Cooke
      Live At The Harlem Square Club - RCA / ABKCO
      [ This was a live recording made in Miami in 1963 & features
      Clif White on guitar and King Curtis & his band. This is a much
      grittier Sam Cooke than you hear on his studio recordings. ]

      Timmy Thomas - It's My Life - The Goldwax Story - Vol. 2 - Kent
      [ Recorded in 1963 & featuring the Memphis Horns. Terrific,
      soulful vocals on this one. ]

      Nina Simone - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood - Anthology - RCA
      [ Recorded in 1964 & originally released on the Phillips LP
      called "Broadway-Blues-Ballads." ]

      Buddy McKnight - Everytime Pt. 2 - The Return Of Mod Jazz - Kent
      [ Hammond B-3 instrumental released on Los Angeles-based Renfro
      Records in 1968. ]

      -------- - -------- - -------- - --------

      The Animals - Don't Bring Me Down - Animalization - MGM
      [ Eric Burdon & The Animals (well, a modern version of the
      Animals) will be appearing at the Bottleneck Blues Bar (i.e.
      Ameristar Casino) on Thursday (2/15). This show is sold out. ]

      The Greenhornes - Pattern Skies - Sewed Soles - V2
      [ I'm probably in the minority but I'd rather hear the music of
      this Ohio band than the music of the Raconteurs (which features Jack
      White, Brendan Benson & the rhythm section of the Greenhornes,
      Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence. ]

      Deadstring Brothers - 27 Hours - Deadstring Brothers - Times Beach
      [ It's not the Stones but a pretty good simulation. There is no
      way that the Mick Jagger comparisons can fail to be made when you
      hear a song like this. This is off their debut album recorded in
      2003. They put on a very good show at Twangfest last June in the
      Duck Room. ]

      -------- - -------- - -------- - --------

      Don Covay - I Was Checkin' Out While She Was Checkin' In - Mercy
      Mercy: The Definitive Don Covay - Razor & Tie
      [ A sad, sad tale - "I just got finished giving the hotel
      manager back the room key and paid my bill / I was outside in the
      car / In the shadows of the parkin' lot / Tellin' the woman I was with
      how happy she made me / Kissin' and huggin'/ An all of a sudden
      another car pulled up on the parkin' lot / But I couldn't believe my
      eyes / 'Cause the woman that was sitting in the front seat beside
      another dude / Turned out to be my old lady / Lord, I was checkin'
      out / And she was checkin' in" ]

      Millie Jackson - Angel In Your Arms - Feeling Bitchy - Southbound
      [ Sad, sad tale #2 - "Do you think I'm such a fool/ To believe
      everything you say is true / Well that just goes to show / That you
      really don't know / While you're out painting the town / Do you think
      I'm home just sitting around / Waiting on you / Now who's really the
      fool / So don't be surprised to find that the angel in your arms this
      morning / Is gonna be the devil in someone else's arms tonight." ]

      -------- - -------- - -------- - --------

      Patty Griffin - Stay On The Ride - Children Running Through - ATO*
      [ This was just released this week so I've barely got a chance
      to listen to it. She's pretty much incapable of putting out a bad
      album. On first listen, I'd say it ranks up there with her very best.
      I didn't expect this R&B-tinged song, at all, and she sounds great on
      it. ]

      Grand Champeen - Nice Of You To Join Us - "dial T for this" - In
      Music We Trust*
      [ This forthcoming release by Grand Champeen is slated to come
      out on March 6. You can expect a dual CD release party by Grand
      Champeen (Austin) and Two Cow Garage (Columbus) here in St. Louis in
      May (tentatively May 19). The new Two Cow Garage release is coming
      out in April. ]

      -------- - -------- - -------- - --------

      Peter, Bjorn, & John - Objects Of My Affection - Writer's Block -
      V2*
      [ This one gets better every time I hear it. This release by the
      Swedish band came out in June of 2006 overseas and was just released
      in the U.S. this week. Highly recommended for lovers of indie pop. ]

      Jennifer O' Connor - Exeter, Rhode Island - Over The Mountain,
      Across The Valley, & Back To The Stars - Matador
      [ Appearing this Friday (2/9) at Off Broadway. Also on the bill
      is Kevin Devine & The God Damn Band & Koufax Pablo. At least, I
      think Koufax Pablo is one name. Hard to tell from the Off Broadway
      web site. Also, hard to tell when Jennifer O' Connor is going on.
      It looks like in the middle. She sure is worth hearing, though.
      This was one of my favorite albums from 2006. ]

      The Feelies - Let's Go - The Squid & The Whale ST - Ultra
      [ Go see the movie and go buy the soundtrack. You won't be
      disappointed with either one. ]

      -------- - -------- - -------- - --------

      Warren Zevon - A Certain Girl - Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School -
      Asylum
      [ Written by Naomi Neville aka Allen Toussaint. This album has
      still never been made available on CD. Hard to believe in this age
      where, seemingly, everything's been released, by now. ]

      Soul Brothers Six - You Better Check Yourself - The Beat Goes
      On..... - Kent
      [ Best known for their recording of "Some Kind Of Wonderful."
      This was released on Atlantic in 1967. ]

      Dyke & The Blazers - Let A Woman Be A Woman, Let A Man Be A Man -
      We Got More Soul - BGP*
      [ This 2-CD compilation of the funk / soul 60s band is a new
      release and features full, uncut versions of their songs plus many
      unreleased songs. This song came out in 1969 on the Hollywood-based
      Original Sound label. Fans of James Brown & sixties funk will really
      like this. ]

      -------- - -------- - -------- - --------

      Gordon Jenkins - (Excerpt From) Second Dream - Gordon Jenkins'
      Seven Dreams - Decca
      [ From M2M play list on March 2, 2006 -"This was an excerpt from
      the second dream on this album (what can I say - Gordon Jenkins had
      long dreams) and is called "The Conductor." It was recorded in 1953.
      The most striking thing is that the latter part of this song features
      a segment called Crescent City Blues that is exactly the same melody
      (just slower) and has most of the same words as "Folsom Prison
      Blues." The courts ruled in the 60s that this song was more than just
      inspired by Gordon Jenkins and Johnny Cash had to pay up." Addendum:
      At least, this time I remembered to fade the song by the time two
      seconds was remaining. That's when a loud alarm clock goes off.
      Scares the hell out of me every time. ]

      Lee Ann Womack - The Weight - Endless Highway: The Music Of The
      Band - 429 Records*
      [ One of the standout tracks on this new tribute album release.
      Buddy & Julie Miller assist with vocals on this. ]

      My Morning Jacket - It Makes No Difference - Endless Highway: The
      Music Of The Band - 429 Records+*
      [ A listener requested this and I was a little leery that they
      would desecrate one of my favorite songs, ever. I mean, Rick Danko's
      vocals on the original are God-like. But My Morning Jacket does a
      really good version of this song. And this is coming from somebody
      who knows very little about and has no music by My Morning Jacket. ]

      Golden Gate Quartet - If I Had My Way - Golden Gate Quartet -
      Gospel Greats - BMG

      Mavis Staples - My Own Eyes - We'll Never Turn Back - Anti-*
      [ This comes out April 24th. Produced by Ry Cooder. An absolute
      must-have. And I'm glad I'm on a station where I can play a seven
      minute song whenever I want to. ]

      -------- - -------- - -------- - --------

      Holmes Brothers - God Will - State Of Grace - Alligator*

      Danny White - I'm Dedicating My Life - Natural Soul Brother - Kent*
      [ Danny White is a soul singer who was based out of New
      Orleans. This song was co-written by Issac Hayes, David Porter, and
      Steve Cropper and was recorded at Atlas Records in 1965. ]

      James Brown - Your Cheating Heart - Dirty Laundry: The Soul Of
      Black Country - Trikont
      [ Terrific. James Brown covering Hank Williams while backed by
      the big band of Louis Bellson and produced by Oliver Nelson. Recorded
      in 1969. ]

      Int'l
      [ Thanks to Rich Reese (loyal KDHX supporter/volunteer and
      Beatles expert) for dropping this off. This is the slowest version
      I've ever heard of the Little Richard song. From Wikipedia - "In
      1989, John Lennon's jukebox surfaced in an auction of Beatles
      memorabilia at Christie's, and was sold for £2,500 to Bristol-based
      music promoter John Midwinter. Lennon had apparently bought the
      jukebox â?" specifically a Swiss KB Discomatic â?" in 1965, and
      filled it with forty singles to take with him on tour. Midwinter
      spent several years restoring the box and researching the discs
      catalogued in Lennon's spidery handwriting. In 2004, The South Bank
      Show broadcast a documentary on the jukebox in which many of the
      represented artists were asked to comment. A compilation was also
      released, containing thirty-four of the singles' A-sides and seven of
      their B-sides." ]

          Happily, Bad Luck Streak In Dancing School was issued on CD a few years ago,
          and I believe Elektra still has it in print. Once The Envoy and Stand In
          the Fire come out next month, every Zevon record will have been issued at
          least once on CD. (I think Hindu Love Gods and Mr. Bad Example are out of
          print.)

          who just got The Squid & The Whale from Netflix and will see it this
          weekend. And can mention that the DVD of Baumbach's first film Kicking &
          Screaming is excellent.

            Now, this (Kicking & Screaming) I'm going to have to see. The couple
            of songs by Dean Wareham & Britta Phillips on the soundtrack are
            beautiful. And then when you throw in tracks by The McGarrigles, Lou
            Reed (Street Hassle), & Loudon Wainwright III, it sure ends up
            working well with the movie.

              It's a straight reissues with no bonus tracks, so maybe Elektra didn't think
              it was worth publicizing much. But "A Certain Girl" exists in digital
              form, both there and on iTunes. >

              The use of Street Hassle was superb, and the Pink Floyd track plays a
              substantial role in the film. Baumbach tends to make good use of music
              (especially if you like Wareham, who appears in High-Ball); Kicking &
              Screaming's featured tracks are by The Pixies, Nick Drake, and Freedy
              Johnston (best use of Johnston outside of Kingpin).
