Juniper [00:28] "Boys! Boys! Boys! Boys! Boys!" Juniper FABCOM! Records FR-002 2020 The finest bubblefun you can have and be sober! Siouxsie and the Banshees [02:19] "Christine" Kaleidoscope PVC Records PVC 7921 1980 I dated a Christine once. Thankfully she only had one personality. Sunn O))) [05:18] "Kannon 2" Kannon Southern Lord sunn250 2015 Hello heaviness. The New Trust [15:05] "Obsidian" Keep Dreaming Discos Huelga huel018 2013 Santa Rosa's very own. Recorded and mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio. Merle Haggard and the Strangers [18:49] "Here in Frisco" Keep Movin' On Capitol Records ST 11365 1975 Evidently if you're from around these parts, you don't call it Frisco. But who am I, a Yankee, to say? Anywho, that one goes out to all you loyal listeners in Shakeytown making all alone work for the last year. I can't even imagine. The Four Tops [21:29] "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I Got)" Keeper of the Castle Dunhill/ABC Records DSX 50129 1972 Tell 'em Levi. Originally recorded by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, who are three people, not four. We've had this discussion already. Artie Shaw and his Orchestra [24:24] "Begin the Beguine" Kellogg's Presents Big Band Classics RCA Special Products DPL1-0438(e) 1980 That's right kids: eat enough Frosted Flakes and you too could grow up to own a compilation of all your favorite big band numbers performed by yesterday's stars. Jerry Reed [29:00] "Eastbound and Down" Kickin' Country K-Tel WU 3600 1981 Guitar man Jerry Reed gets us ready for that beer run. Made it to number 3 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 in 1977. Jerry gets a little help from Jordinaire Gordon Stoker. And Flash, of course. The Exbats [31:48] "I Got the Hots for Charlie Watts" Kicks, Hits, and Fits Burger Records BRGR 1456 2020 Easily one of my favorite albums from 2020. And of course, Inez is right. Roberta Flack [35:41] "Suzanne" Killing Me Softly Atlantic SD 7271 1973 We heard Roberta covering Leonard Cohen on her debut album First Take, so why not hear her covering Leonard Cohen on this double platinum album? Miles Davis [46:25] "Blue in Green" Kind of Blue Columbia PC 8163 1959 (1977 Terre Haute reissue) A modal ballad from Miles recorded March 2, 1959 with John Coltrane on tenor sax, Bille Evans on piano, Paul Chambers on double bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Benny Goodman Quartet [51:41] "Vibraphone Blues" The King of Swing, Vol 1: 1937-38 Jazz Concert No. 2 Columbia CL 817 1956 Originally recorded in 1937, this track features Lionel Hampton on both vibes and vocals, plus Benny on clarinet, Teddy Wilson on piano, and Gene Krupa on drums. Sidney Bechet [55:04] "Crazy Rhythm" The King of the Soprano Saxophone Good Time Jazz L-12013 1956 A fine take on this standard, featuring Bechet and some assistance from Jonah Jones on trumpet. Music behind the DJ: "Gomez" by Vic Mizzy
