Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Traveling Mix

A busy week for music in Nashville.  Tonight it’s a Tim Easton live recording at The Building in East Nashville with Megan Palmer plus Darrin Bradbury and Tim Carroll.  Tomorrow – way too many choices, but it’s the usual Wednesday night joint a Fran’s with Darrin Bradbury and Tim Carroll.  Thursday, a Happy Hour of great Roots Guitarist including Ear to the Ground favorite Mark Robinson, plus Ritchie Owens and the Farm Bureau, Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen, and Nick Kane formerly of The Mavericks at The Five Spot.  After that another E2TG alum, Pony Boy plays as part of a 5 Spot favorites show and the fun continues…

Right now, we have a shuffle to put on…

“Ordinary World” by Heather Powell from Believe it to Life

A wonderful soulful pop song from Heather Powell via the True Groove Records label.

“Solar Sex Panel” by Little Village from Little Village

Eco-friendly loving via John Hiatt, Nick Lowe, Ry Cooder, and Jim Keltner

“Volcano” by U2 from Songs of Innocence

I actually like this better than the track from yesterday.  For the video, I picked some bizarre Russian??? girl doing this song or maybe it’s another song called Volcano.  I really don’t know.

“Travelling Again (Travelling I)” by Dar Williams from The Honesty Room

Maybe it’s because my life has not included nearly the amount of travel as I would like, I have always been drawn to songs, stories, and films about travelling.  With Dar Williams – you just can’t go wrong.

“Mr. Z” by Joe Sundell from The Hat Thief

A recommendation from Popa Tunes. An old fashioned sounding Blues/Folk song about a certain Mr. Z from Florida who got away with murder, but does anyone ever really get away with murder?

“Revelator” by The Boy From the Crown from The Boy From the Crowd

via IMP – some pretty interesting Alternative Blues Rock music from London.  This is the new single which will be released next week.  I’m digging it.

“Ma Mule” by David Johansen from Evangeline Made: a tribute to Cajun Music

How about a Cajun song about a mule from ex-New York Doll who introduced the world to Buster Poindexter.

“Don’t Bug Me When I’m Working” by Little Village from Little Village

How many times do I have to tell you?

“Shout to the Top” by The Style Council from The Singular Adventures of the Style Council/Café Bleu (deluxe version)/Vision Quest Soundtrack

This song appeared beside Madonna, Foreigner and Journey on the soundtrack to the 1985 movie Vision Quest which is based upon an excellent novel by Terry Davis.

“Lovesick Blues” by Chris Stamey from Lovesick Blues !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”);

We close out the day with the nearly six minute title track to Chris Stamey’s 2013 album.  A fine way to close out a Tuesday shuffle.
