"Just About the Sexiest Thing" by The Jolly Light Brigade
"I've got a parachute that you can use. It was just about the sexiest thing that anyone had ever said to me." From our friends at Dord Music Group. D or d (Density).
"Easy Living" by Broyeur
Broyeur is a Swiss dance, edm, electronic music artist. This is a single that was released late last year which came to me via e-mail. If I had a usual thing, this would be different than it, but I like this.
"Color Wheel" by Bashful Hips
The first of two tracks from Bashful Hips' new album After I Died, I've Never Felt So Alive. Dig it!
"Heaven and Hell" by Willie Nelson
From the 1974 album, Phases and Stages - some classic Willie Nelson... the kind of smooth transition that makes Wild Wednesday so much fun!
"Samson and Delilah" by The Staple Singers
From the Freedom Highway Complete recording which celebrated the 50th Anniversary of The Staple Singers legendary 1965 performance at Chicago's New Nazareth Church, comes this recording of the traditional song. The song was notably covered by the Grateful Dead.
"Like Flies On Sherbert" by Alex Chilton
The title track from Alex Chilton's 1979 debut solo album - produced by Chilton and Jim Dickinson and recorded and Ardent and Sam Phillips Studios in Memphis.
"Why Won't You Love Me" by Bare Jr.
The last listed track on the 1998 album Boo-Tay. I was fortunate enough to see the most recent Bare Jr. reunion show at The Basement East a few months back, and it was a blast! Bobby Bare Jr. is currently touring as a member of Guided by Voices.
"Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar" by Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen
From the 1971 debut album by Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen called Lost in the Ozone. Their version of the 1940 song that was written by Don Raye and first recorded by the Will Bradley Orchestra. I think this song first came into my consciousness via The Rainmakers' song, "Let My People Go-Go" which references the title.
"Spotted Bird" by Kalyn Fay
Another track from that Oklahoma Room CD that I mentioned yesterday. This song is from the forthcoming album, Bible Belt. I really dig this song.
"Imaginary Certainty" by Bashful Hips
And we close things out with another track from the new Bashful Hips' album. There is something I really like about the meditative qualities on this album.
