Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle - Red Door Mix

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

I know absolutlely nothing about our next band. But, we do have another cover.  This one is a cover of the Rolling Stone's classic Paint It, Black  and is performed by a band called The Insurgency from a Stone's tribute album called Exiled Again.  I found a band called The Insurgency on Facebook, but I do not believe it is the same band.  This band apparently has done several tribute albums on Cherry Red Records.  In any event, here is the album:

 Here is the real deal since I couldn't find a video of the cover...

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.


Here is another White Flag song from the same era.
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.
