Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Reflections Mix

A lot of ground to cover….  as promised, I added a virtual ton of music to the playlist – 196 songs in all bringing the total before today’s post of 471 songs – which I think is a record.

First off – you have to understand that Lou Reed tributes are not going to stop anytime soon.  His death seemed to affect people who make and listen to all kinds of music.  Today, we have a very special video offered as a tribute to Mr. Reed.  It’s a cover of the Velvet Underground classic (aren’t they all?) and one of my favorites (I know I say this about quite a few VU and Reed songs – but really I mean it) – “I’ll Be Your Mirror” here performed by Richard Barone with the amazing Jane Scarpantoni on Cello from the 25th  Anniversary concert for one of the most lovely records ever made (Cool Blue Halo).  Richard Barone (Bongos) is offering up the song as a tribute to his late friend and influence.



Now – let’s get to the shuffle…. we have a long one today – so join me after the JUMP

“Bumming Me Out” by The Great American Novel (from 😦 .  )

“Love You Strongly” by Amy Stroup (from The Other Side of Love – Session Two.)

“Wilbur Mountain (2012)” by Darrin Bradbury (from NEW!!!!The Almost Great Crepe’s (Demos). Darrin Bradbury was in Big Wilson River who we have featured before. Word has it he has upped and relocated from New Jersey to Nashville.  Nashville take notice!  I love the spoken/story/song featured here.  It makes me think of Gary Larson (The Far Side) meeting Larry McMurtry kind of… and in case you don’t know that would be a damn fine thing indeed.)

 
 
“Break it Up” by Grounded (from an untitled album released 10/31/2013.  Careful and dedicated listeners may remember that E2TG featured the young Florida band Grounded sometime last year. Well, they are back with some new music, and it’s a good reminder of why I was so impressed by this band.)
  

“Pawnshops” by Todd Farrell Jr. and the Dirty Birds (from All Our Heroes Live in Vans.  Todd Farrell is one of the brightest lights in a stunning bright Nashville music scene. Flat out great song here. This one also came out on Halloween.)
 


 

 
 
“Golem” by Black Joe Lewis (from Electric Slave.  I can’t stop listening to this funky Texas rocker.)
 
“Femme Fatale” by Big Star (from Third/Sister Lovers.  What more can be said an iconic band, doing a cover of an iconic song. It’s from the equally iconic Third album by Big Star from Memphis.  Do I need to say that it’s a Velvet Underground cover.)
 
“Cohesion” and “Please Don’t Be Gentle with Me” by Minutemen (from Double Nickels on the Dime.  Back to back songs from the Post-Punk masterpiece. A study in contrast)
 
“All Dolled Up” by Penicillin Baby (from Jams: Volume III. More Psyched out ear candy from this amazing Nashville band – via Jeffery Drag Records)
 
 
“God Bows to Math” by Minutemen (from Double Nickels on the Dime.  And a third song from this album for good measure. ’cause why the hell not?)
 
“Real Child of Hell” by X (from Under the Big Black Sun. From the LA punk band’s third album and major label debut.  Ray Manzarek back behind the boards for the third time)
 
“To Be Someone (Didn’t We Have a Nice Time)” by The Jam (from All Mod Cons. This is the modern world.)
 
“Beware of a Dog” by EdTang (from Goodbye, Zen5, Sushi Dinner.  Another great song from this Asbury Park band.  We’ve been digging this album for a while.)
 
 
“Tennessee Whiskey and Me” by Jenny Leigh (from Tipping Point.  Miss Shevaughn introduced me to Jenny Leigh at The Basement last month.  She has recently relocated from D.C. to Nashville, and I hope to catch her playing around town some time.)
 
“Witches” by The Danbury Lie (from ?.  The spooky opening track from the latest full length release from The Danbury Lie.)
