Monday Morning Music Shuffle – Ain’t Nobody Mix

We are back on a rainy/overcast Monday morning here in Nashville with a short, but sweet mix of songs to get you through…

“Do You Know What it Mean to Miss New Orleans” by Victoria Williams from Sing Some Ol’ Songs

From our on-going presentation of Victoria William’s cool collection of great old songs, we offer up this oft-covered gem which was made famous by Billie Holliday and Louis Armstrong in the 1947 film, New Orleans. 

“Walk Like You” by James from La petite mort

From the latest album (released in June of this year) by  the Manchester band that formed in the early 1980s and had their greatest success in the 1990s. “Walk Like You” is a mature version of the band’s signature Brit-pop sound.

“Ma Blonde Est Partie” by Maria McKee from Evangeline Made: a tribute to Cajun Music

Our survey of this excellent Cajun Music tribute album continues with this track which combines the music of my ancestry with one of my all-time favorite singers – Maria McKee (Lone Justice and her amazing solo records).

“Bill Richardson’s Greenback Dollar” by The Jugbusters from Honky Tonk Hymnal

Bill Richardson of The Jugbusters (a high energy, old-time honky tonk band from the New River Valley area of Virginia) lost a battle with cancer last month.  This song was on the October edition of the Feel Bad for You mixtape.  RIP Bill Richardson.

“Blood Bubbles” by The Orwells from Other Voices EP

This Chicago-area band has been getting some well-deserved attention.  An incendiary appearance on Late Night with David Letterman gave them a huge boost of attention.  Here, they offer a nice jolt to my morning commute. 

“Skin” by Chris Stamey from Lovesick Blues

Another album we’ve been featuring for a while is the latest solo effort by dB member Chris Stamey.  It is an excellent Pop album filled with great songs.

“Ain’t Nobody (gonna save my soul)” by Pork Chop Willie from Love is the Devil!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js”;fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,”script”,”twitter-wjs”);

And we close out the day with another track from one of our favorite albums of the year.  “Music of the North Mississippi Hill Country… from streets of Manhattan.”
