A mini-tribute to pals Jimmer Podrasky and Syd Straw, including their brilliant new EP is just one highlight of this episode. You will hear new singles from Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and Steve Forbert, as well as tracks from a just released Forbert Tribute album, a new Bowie single, a sample of Cowboy Junkies riveting new album and a pair pf previously unreleased gems, a Dead classic from the 50th anniversary issue of Anthem Of The Sun and The Allman Brothers recorded at the Fillmore East by Owsley "Mouse" Stanley! And that's not including new music from Shemekia Copeland, John Grant and my Jersey pals, The Weeklings.
The series continues with #19, containing a tribute to an old friend and mentor and a musical remembrance to a cousin that has left us way too soon. This episode could be called comfort food as it is filled with sounds that are helping me heal like Morphine, Hendrix, Miles and more. A reissue from The Supremes, something new from Lera Lynn and a bit of the Python for giggles.
Only Alice could start episode 18 but there's plenty of new things in here as well from Jim James, The Essex Green, Dawes, Jeff Whalen, Jeffrey Foucault and more. Rare live material from The War On Drugs, Stevie Wonder, Taj Mahal and Wilco, a tribute to my new lack of "Hair" and newly released rarities from Graham Nash and guitar master Dennis Coffey. We class the joint up with Sinatra, Jobim, Miles and Brother Ray, and offer up a master class in Soul with the late Donny Hathaway.
