Since I missed a couple of morning shuffles last week, I thought I would add in a special rare Saturday Night Music Shuffle....
"Automobile" by Josh Morris
Nashville singer-songwriter, we first met when he was part of And the Giraffe. His new EP Green Fields is out now!
"Clap Your Hands" by The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band
Try not to Clap Your Hands....
"Paper Van Gogh" by Shelby Lynne
Gorgeous song by the amazing Shelby Lynne from her brand new album, Can't Imagine.
"Just After Dark" by The Bandicoots
The Bandicoots are from Hamilton, Ontario, and I dig what I've heard so far, and I want to hear more..
"The National Scroll" by The Transcendents
Another track from our newish friends from Christchurch, New Zealand.
"(I Know) I'm Losing You" by Rod Stewart
From Every Picture Tells a Story. Contractually billed as a Rod Stewart solo record, this was in actuality a Faces record. Or else, I am totally wrong. In any event, this song was first recorded by the Temptations and later Rare Earth.
"All I Have to Do is Dream" by David Schnaufer and Mark Knopfler
The late great David Schnaufer teams up with the legendary guitarist Mark Knopfler for this instrumental version of a song made famous by The Everly Brothers.
"Broke Down Engine Blues" by Townes Van Zandt
From a 1973 live recording of Townes Van Zandt doing the Blind Willie McTell song.
"The Lucky One" by Tom Schreck
Another of my favorite current Nashville songwriters... from his album, Save Your Glory. To put a fine point on it, the video playlist includes Schreck's cover of the Bob Dylan song, "Blind Willie McTell"
"Take Your Troubles Away" by The Satisfactors
Another track from the debut album by New Jersey supergroup, The Satisfactors. The Satisfactors' bassist Kenny Aaronson was recently announced as a member of the 2015 version of The Yardbirds.
"Dig Two Graves" by Anne McCue
Australian born, Nashville transplant - the amazing Anne McCue is one Nashville has no trouble claiming as our own. This was the first single from her recent album, Blue Sky Thinkin'. The video features McCue with Webb Wilder and Kevin Gordon.
"All" by The Descendents
The prequel to "Not All", and clocking in at just about 2 seconds at most.
"Worst That Could Happen to Me" by The Brooklyn Bridge
Some sweet pop soul music from the 1968 self titled album by the New York band often billed as Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge. The song was written by the great Jimmy Webb and originally recorded by The Fifth Dimension.
