Greetings from chilly, overcast Nashville, home of the hit television series and a bunch of other things, too. Well, this could very well be the final Music Shuffle from my current cellular telephone. A new phone is scheduled to arrive today, and if all goes as planned, we will begin a new era of superior music shuffling here at Ear2theGround.
Meanwhile, as you know (you do know, don't you?) we load up the memory card with fresh tracks on Monday nights. We had some fun selecting songs this week and some of the fruits of our fun make an appearance in this morning's shuffle. Shall we?
While, we don't highlight it as we once did, here at Ear2theGround, we dig a cool cover version. We have a good one for you today to lead off our Morning Shuffle: How about legendary Phoenix band, Meat Puppets with a song from a 1981 compilation album covering a song from Neil Young's second studio album (and his first with Crazy Horse). Herewith, please find enclosed for your enjoyment, Meat Puppets doing their version of The Losing End from the album Keats Rides a Harley, which is a cover of the Neil Young and Crazy Horse song which appeared first in 1969 on the album Everybody Knows This is Nowhere.
How about Elvis doing The Losing End
California punk band, White Flag are up next with their contribution to the 1987 compilation Rat Music for Rat People Vol. III called Kitchen Diaster.
And, we close things out with a change in direction of sorts with one of the bands currently in the running for Band of the Month - The Ugly Club with an acoustic version of their song Last Evenings from their recent, Songs from a 10th Street Apartment.
