Tonight is one of those Nashville nights with so much live music going on… (even with the postponing of the Margo Price Album Release Show at Third Man Records due to her impending appearance on SNL (Go Margo!).  Suffice it to say, if you go out to see live music anywhere in East Nashville, you are probably making the right call.  The 5 Spot, The Basement East, Mad Donnas, and The American Legion all have awesome folks playing.  (plus there are probably others that are not coming to my mind right now).

Meanwhile, it is Thursday and thus time for Throwback Thursday here at the ole E2TG.  Most people don’t know that the term “Throwback Thursday” originated in the mid 1980s in Chicago.  It was a day set aside to remind Chicago Cub fans that they were not to keep homerun balls hit by opposing ball players.  “Throwback Thursday” as in throwback those homerun balls hit by the Mets or whoever.  Now you know!

“Love Hurts” by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris

We begin with the classic duet from the posthumously released Grievous Angel album.  The song was written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant and first recorded by The Everly Brothers. In addition to the Parsons and Harris version, I snuck a video into the playlist of my friends Taylor Alexander and Lindsay Ellyn singing this one. Taylor and his band, Tennessee Tapwater have been added to the Gram Parsons 70th Birthday  Bash -GPI IX Nashville – which will be held at Douglas Corner later this year.

“Something to Du” by The Replacements

From Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash… a tribute to a great Minneapolis post punk band by another great Minneapolis post punk band.  Trivia: I once used this title as the inspiration for a short story.  The song is better.

“Egungun Riot 1976” by Femi Akinyemi’s JuJu Lucky Stars

Next up 19 minutes of incredible Nigerian music from the late 1970s (I think). I could not find much information about this band or record on line.  Aquarium Drunkard recently released the track with no accompanying text.  I wonder if Patrick and Uggy from Valued Customer have heard this?  Anyway, it is truly amazing music.

“Double Shot (Of My Baby’s Love)” by Swingin’ Medallions

Thank you shuffle for allowing me a forum for some shameless self-promotion.  This 1966 release happens to be the theme-song of my forthcoming radio show that I am co-hosting with Sue Havlish on Nashville’s new radio station (low power FM) WXNA.  Sue and I met some of the other DJs this past weekend, and next week we will join them for some training (I’m guessing we will be reminded of those seven words we will not be allowed to say on the air).  Our go-live date is rapidly approaching and I hope I can announce that soon. The Swingin’ Medallions hailed from Greenwood, South Carolina. 

“A Legal Matter” (live Who cover) by The Alarm

I recently found my copy of a CD Mini Disc of the Welsh band The Alarm that featured their song, “The Stand” along with two live tracks including this cover of the song by The Who.   I was really pleased when my CD drive could read the mini Disc.

“Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition

This was the first big hit song for Kenny and his original band.  This song was written by Mickey Newbury. produced by Mike Post – who went on to become famous for his work on television theme songs.  The track features backward guitar playing by Glen Campbell.

Throwback Thursday Morning Shuffle – Tommy Said So Mix

I have a lot on my mind, and I kind of feel an extended non-shuffle post coming on – when I have the time. 

If you have not done so, I recommend watching the video of Michael Stipe singing “The Man Who Sold the World” on Fallon. 

In short, the thoughts in mind are about the concept of limitations vs. the infinite.  They are about the road to peace that is sometimes harder to walk but ultimately worth the extra effort. About the music “industry” and the value of art.  About the “latest next big thing” vs. the really cool thing that may or may not someday be the “latest next big thing” but regardless is pretty amazing right in this moment. 

It’s all kind of jumbled in my mind, and for me the only way to unjumble it (or at least the best way) is for me to write it all down.  Anyway, some jumbled thoughts may be coming.

Facebook controls what posts you see and even sometimes what pages you “like”. This is why I #Crosspost links to this blog on both the E2TG Facebook Page and on my personal page.   If you want to follow E2TG on Facebook, click the link give us a “Like”.  Even if you think (or know) that you “liked” us, go ahead and click the link and make sure you still do “like” us.

People sometimes ask me, “How old does a song have to be to appear on “Throwback Thursday”.  Usually, I just say, “Interesting question…” and wander off..  Really, though, it’s impolite to ask a song how old it is, so let’s just say the songs on this playlist are all of a “certain age”.

Shuffle:

“Where Were You?” by The Mekons

We had Waco Brothers in the shuffle earlier this week.  Now, we throw Jon Langford music back a few decades with this track from 1978 which was the second release by the band.  You, like I, need to check out the 2014 Documentary “Revenge of the Mekons.” as soon as humanly possible.

“Yvonne” by Marshall Crenshaw

I have written extensively about Downtown – Crenshaw’s 1985 album and the place it holds in my sensory and physical memory.  Downtown was Crenshaw’s third album and was co-produced by T-Bone Burnett, Crenshaw, and Larry Hirsch. It is very hard for me to separate the nostalgia from the music, but to me this – over 30 year old song, does not sound thirty years old – it just sounds like Marshall Crenshaw and that is never a bad thing.

“Down at the River” by Tim Lee

I first met Tim Lee – a couple of years ago after having been introduced to his band Tim Lee 3 via the late and lamented CXCW non-festival.  Over time, I learned that he had a hand of some of my favorite music from back in the day.  Besides being a part of Let’s Active for a short time (and appearing on an episode of IRS Records Presents: The Cutting Edge (which I no doubt watched on MTV), Tim Lee also produced the album Gawk by Will (Kimbrough) and the Bushmen.  This song comes from Tim’s 1992 solo album, The New Thrill Parade, and it was later part of the compilation All That Stuff… (1993). 

“Get Up and Dance” by The Weeks

I must be getting old, but it feels very weird to have The Weeks in the Throwback shuffle – as they seem like a “new” band to me.  However, they recently made some of their earliest music available on Noisetrade in celebration of their 10th year as a band.  This music was recorded when the members of the band were in their mid teens, but you really can’t tell by listening.  By the way, in the “Connections” department.  The Weeks and Tim Lee both have roots in the Jackson, Mississippi area.

“Mystery Wind” by Richard Thompson

Another track from Richard Thompson’s incredible Rumor and Sigh album.  

“I Hate Music” by The Replacements

From Sorry Ma, Forget to Take Out the Trash. 

“The Way of the World” by Flipper

From their debut album, Generic Flipper which was released in 1982.  Time is funny, I was actually a kind of “late bloomer” when it came to cool music and so by the mid-80s when I started hearing about Flipper, they had taken on (in my mind) an almost mythical quality – like they had existed so long before (even though at that point this album was just a couple of years old, and they were still an active band.)  A couple of years seems trivial now – some 30 odd years later, but back then, it seem to make a lot of difference.  Truth be told, they were already legendary by the point I “discovered” them.

“Gone Daddy Gone” by Violent Femmes

This song from the seminal self-titled album includes a verse from the Willie Dixon song, “I Just Want to Make Love to You”, and is thus credited to Gordon Gano and Dixon.  The song was covered in 2006 by Gnarls Barkley.

“Is She Really Going Out With Him?” by Joe Jackson

This was the first single by Joe Jackson released in 1978. It later appeared on his debut album, Look Sharp! 

“The Only Minority” by Minutemen

We close with a Minutemen song that clocks in at exactly one minute. From What Make’s a Man Start Fires?  The second album by this post-punk band from San Pedro.

Another great night of music in Nashville – both the shows I saw and those I wasn’t able to see (can only be in one place at a time!).  What I saw:  Lindsay Ellyn had her EP release show at Two Old Hippies in the Gulch, and once again demonstrated why I have been so impressed with her music since I met her last fall.  It’s a simple formula that not too many can or will follow.  Start with great songs, surround yourself with top-notch talent, treat others kindly, and work hard. Her EP Out of Road is out and available at the usual places, and it comes highly recommended by #E2TG.

After Lindsay’s show, I hopped over to 3rd and Lindsley for the Bobby Memphis Benefit show. It was a great night for a great cause, and I finally got to see the Human Radio live and her both their classics and some awesome new songs.  (Read my Review on No Depression). To donate to the Bobby Memphis fund – visit the Go Fund Me page.

 Human Radio reformed at the end of 2014 and they are in the midst of a Kickstarter Campaign for a new album and tour

Whew!  Btw, another great night of music on tap for tonight!  Shuffle did you say?

“Dreams” by Rich Robbins (feat. Mick Jenkins)

Rich Robbins once again shows off his lyrical prowess with a dreamy track from his debut album, Nimbus. 

“Another Girl, Another Planet” (The Only Ones cover) by The Replacements

From the legendary live compilation, Shit Shower and Shave – comes this cover of the 1978 British Punk/New Wave song by the band The Only Ones.

“Everybody Loves Elvis” by Brock Zeman

Just the plain truth from Brock Zeman from his album Pulling Your Sword Out of the Devil’s Back.  So glad I got to see him a couple of weeks ago. 

“My Band Just Got Signed to Def Jam” by 100% Beefcake

Seriously, ya’ll… at 13 years old, Hayden Nork has more side projects than most people have songs.  More weird, wild, and awesome music from the minds of the teenagers of Connecticut.  By the way, thanks for making me search for 100% Beefcake on You Tube.  I didn’t find any videos of the band – they are pretty new – but I found stuff… yep, I found stuff…

“When Ye Go Away” by The Waterboys

Digging deeper into the classic Fishermen’s Blues album.  A deep well that promises and produces refreshing drinks of clear waters.

“YoYo Daddy” by Sidestreet Reny and Lil’bell

From the album, Holler.  Thanks for Popa Tunes for including this in his latest mixtape – I cannot get enough of this duo from the Northwest.

“Fragmented World” by Split Single

The title track from the album.  As far as I know, this is not available on an actual split single, but I really didn’t spend much time verifying that, so maybe it is.  In any event, Split Single in the band.  Fragmented World is the song and the album.  Check out the Marathon Man-themed video in the playlist below.

“The Turning of the Wheel of Dhamma” by The Great Game

The multi-national European band delve into Buddhist philosophy with this track from their debut album.

“Most of the Time” by Holy Sheboygan! window.amznpubstudioTag = “eartothegro00-20”; http://ps-us.amazon-adsystem.com/domains/eartothegro00-20_3dcd3a52-1a1a-4afe-a2fd-aaba8e251afc.js 

Another awesome track from the cleverly titled third album by this band that formed in Wisconsin.  By the way, the album is called Three!  As I mentioned before, if you get the chance to see them live, don’t miss them – it is high-energy fun with highly imaginative instrumentation.

So, I find myself short on time, so I have to speed through this. I hope you find time to dig deeper.  I could not find the exact track for all the songs for the Video Playlist, so you my have to do some internet searches.  Some great stuff, and well worth the effort.

“Racing to the Ruins” by Syd Straw

I have enjoyed so much revisiting Syd Straw’s classic album Surprise. Truly one of the best albums of the late 80s.

“Reprise” by The End Men

What a reprise! From the 2013 E2TG Band of the Year’s latest album, Terms and Conditions. The End Men are currently tearing up Europe!

“Takin’ a Ride” by The Replacements

The opening track from the first studio album by the one and only Replacements!

“Send Me on My Way” by Rusted Root

Some people say, I don’t have enough 90s music on Ear to the Ground.  Actually, to my knowledge no one has ever said that, but they may have thought it… but I can’t prove it.  In any event, here is a song released as a single in 1995.  A rough version appeared on Rusted Root’s debut album, Cruel Sun.  The song was rerecorded and included on their second album (and major label debut), When I Woke.  Undeniably infectious.

“India” by Roxy Music

A lush instrumental from the classic 1982 album, Avalon.

“Magnetic” by Michael Sackler-Berner

A song from the Shimmer and Shine EP by the fast rising New York singer-songwriter.

“One Too Many” by Tiffany Huggins-Grant

From the forthcoming album, Jonquil Child, by Nashville-based singer-songwriter Tiffany Huggins-Grant, this song was written by Pamela Jackson (one of only two songs on the album written by others). The album was produced by E2TG favorite Mark Robinson who also produced David Olney’s 2014, When the Deal Goes Down. Really digging this album so far. 

“Snow is Falling” by Cletus Kennelly and Lori Kelley

Another track from the long-time D.C. area duo.  Lori Kelley is now a Nashville resident, and I got to hear her perform Sunday night.

“Just Like You” by Gill Landry

A fantastic track (and first single) from the recent self-titled solo effort by the Old Crow Medicine Show guitarist.

“On Your Knees” by fIREHOSE

From Ragin’ Full On…  one of my favorite fIREHOSE songs.

“The Road Ahead” by Boy Named Banjo

Another great song from the album Long Story Short by the young Nashville band who will be playing Bonnaroo in about a month.

“When the World’s Against Me” by Andrew Adkins and The Colored Parade

I also saw Andrew Adkins perform live Sunday night.  Here he is with his band, The Colored Parade with a song released on KidzlikeDanny 4 a compilation from an organization that raises money for various autism causes.  A great song to end today’s shuffle.

You know the Nashville Conundrum I mentioned a couple of weeks ago?  Well the is a addendum to that conundrum (or something like that).. that is… there are amazing things happening every single night of the week, and (especially if you work a day job), there are nights that you just have to stay in to recharge, refresh, and do some of your own work…  Last night was one of those nights, and yes, I missed some amazing things happening around town, but I am glad that I stayed in, and I got something accomplished…

Case in point, I added a couple of things to my Soundcloud… bits and pieces from my novel-in-progress which you can check out… (there may be some NSFW language/themes, depending where or if you work…)

On to the shuffle:

“Love You Till Friday” by The Replacements

#E2TG Rule # 15*: Any shuffle that begins with a Replacement’s song is a good shuffle.   *I decided to start making up random rules so that when being a Earie (as in Trekkie) becomes a thing, someone can compile them all… you know like the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition.  I may make a language, too. Who knows…  But, yeah, this is from Sorry Ma… and cheers to those seeing the ‘Mats in Chicago tonight.

“Episode in a Town” by Jeremy Gluck/Robert Coyne

After a brief respite, Jeremy Gluck returns to the shuffle with song from his album Memory Deluxe: I Knew Buffalo Bill 2.  This is a reprise of a song on the original I Knew Buffalo Bill album which was released in 1987.  The album featured the late Nikki Sudden and his brother, the late Epic Soundtracks (both of Swell Maps), along with the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce (Gun Club).  Gluck was a founding member of the Barracudas, and he is very actively making a bunch of music with different projects… and I’m sure he will work any factual missteps I made in the above blurb.  I also found out that he lives very close to long-time #E2TG favorite Tipi Valley.  This is a truly great song, by the way.

“Enjoy Yourself (It’s Later Than You Think)” by Guy Lombardo and his Orchestra

Some timely advise from the late, great bandleader… Man oh man, what a great song.

“Waves” by Bahamas

From the Noisetrade Bonnaroo Mixtape.  Bahamas is Afie Jurvanen a musician from Toronto. If you know anything at all about Bahamas, then you know more than I do… This was (I think) my first exposure to his music, and I kind of dig it.

“Molly and Ten Brooks” by Townes Van Zandt

#E2TG Rule #28: Any shuffle with Townes Van Zandt is a good shuffle. Rule #28.1: If that Townes song happens to be a cover of a song that  Bill Monroe  recorded… well, that is just fine. On this live recording, Townes refers to this as a Bill Monroe song, but it is actually a traditional song from the 19th Century… but Townes didn’t have Wikipedia in 1973 when he said it… so…

“The Bulrushes” by Richard Barone

The opening song from Barone’s Cool Blue Halo.  This song originally recorded by his old band, The Bongos, serves as a gorgeous jumping off point for this extraordinary live album.

“Thinkin’ Bout Chicago” by Rich Robbins (Produced by Nate France)

When we last caught up with Rich Robbins, he was going by Christian Robins.  He released an album called Nimbus.  Robbins was born in Chicago, raised in Philly, and moved back to Chicago for high school.  He is currently attending the University of Wisconsin in Madison which is how I first got introduced to him (Robbins studied under a friend of mine from my hometown). I have really digging his music from day one, and it is good to hear the lyrical and musical evolution which has occurred since then.

“Tell Her Lies and Feed Her Candy” by The Sadies

Our second Toronto-based artist/band in the shuffle.  This is a cover of a Porter Wagoner song.

“Little Rock and Roller” by Steve Earle

This song from the classic Guitar Town album makes me think of some of my musician friends who balance raising kids with life on the road.  A touching and heartbreaking song.

“The Landlocked Surfer” by Steelism

Another steel guitar driven, surf, instrumental track from 615 to Fame, Steelism will be playing the still brand new Basement East on Saturday.

“Twenty First Century Believer” by The Naddiks

Another song from 21CB, by The Naddiks from Canberra.  I’ve been enjoying the hell out of this album.

After a long, productive weekend, I am back at the work week – shuffle thing….

ICYMI: my latest two live reviews are up on No Depression.   You can read the first part of my recap of the Safety Harbor Song Fest. (Part II coming soon)  And my Review of Friday nights Humming House hometown record release celebration.

On to the shuffle:

“Harley” by Don Henry

Don Henry’s 1991 album Wild in the Backyard was one of my favorites – great mostly humorous songwriting from a top Nashville writer.  I lost possession of the CD at some point, but the good news is I am pretty sure it ended up in the hands of a friend who went on to be a pretty awesome songwriter, too.  I was happy to come across this live version of a song from that album which was recorded at the Bluebird Café here in Nashville.

“Bozeman” by Matt Prater

I am seriously digging on Matt Prater’s Tables and Chairs album which was released earlier this year, and this is one of my favorite songs, a classic Boy meets… song. Great hook and a fun twist.

“Wave As We Run” by Sean Watkins

Another great song from the album, All I Do is Lie by Nickel Creek guitarist Sean Watkins.

“Tension” by Minutemen

Originally from the 1st 12inch release by post-punk legends the Minutemen – The Punch Line.  That record and What Makes a Man Start Fires were later compiled on the CD Release called Post-Mersh Vol. 1. The song was written by Mike Watt and the late Martin Tamburovich who was part of the band The Reactionaries which was a predecessor band to the Minutemen. 

“My Baby Don’t Understand Me” by Natalie Prass

The opening track from the self-titled debut album by one-time Nashville resident Natalie Prass.  The album was released earlier this year, and debuted at number 50 on the UK album charts. 

“Walked to You” by Tipi Valley

Dust is the latest release from E2TG favorite Tipi Valley of Swansea UK.  The song uses electronic sounds and effects to convey a gorgeous song.  Please take a look at Tipi Valley’s 2015 CXCW video located below the Video Playlist.  The video, like all of Tipi Valley’s videos, is available on Vimeo and not You Tube.

“The Extra Mile” by Jeremy Gluck/Robert Coyne

Another great track from the album Memory Deluxe: I Knew Buffalo Bill 2 which is a follow up to 1987’s album I Knew Buffalo Bill and featured Gluck along with Nikki Sudden, Rowland S. Howard, Jeffrey Lee Pierce, and Epic Soundtracks.

“One O’ The Girls” by Phranc

Phranc’s song about fitting in on the women’s swim team.. from Folksinger.

“Hangin’ Downtown” by The Replacements

From Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash.  A song about – hanging downtown because there is nothing else to do.

“Tear Me Down” by Ron Muga

Another cool song from the album Wonderful Doom by New York singer-songwriter Ron Muga.

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Leather and Chrome Mix

Back at it after a long weekend…. some days, you just don’t feel it, but you press on and music always helps.

“Little World” by Gretchen Peters

A beautiful song from Peters’ 2012 album Hello Cruel World.  Her next album is due in February and is called Blackbirds.

“Don’t Say You Love Me” by Sean Watkins

From the latest solo record by a founding member of Nickel Creek. The album is called All I Do Is Lie, and it was recently made available on Noisetrade. I dig the well written songs played by top-notch musicians.

“Fisherman’s Blues” by The Waterboys

The lead and title track from one of my favorite albums.  At the time, Fisherman’s Blues was a radical departure from The Waterboys’ signature “Big Music” sound, and although I am huge fan of the early Waterboys’ records, I have always had a soft spot for Celtic Music and this is an album I find myself returning to again and again.

“Big Blue Sun” by Amelia White

Another great track from the Old Postcards album. This is always one of my favorites to hear Amelia perform live.

“Holy Moses” by Echo and The Bunnymen

I’ll be honest, I haven’t really kept up with Echo and the Bunnymen in recent years.  This track is off their latest album Meteorites which came out last year. A friend included on his annual mix CD.  I didn’t immediately recognize this has a Echo and the Bunnymen song, but taken out of context (for me), I have to say I like this song.

“1952 Vincent Black Lightning” by Richard Thompson

What exactly can I say. As I’ve stated before, Rumor and Sigh is a favorite of mine, and this song has gone on to become a modern folk music standard that will likely live on for years. I just don’t seem to get tired of hearing this song.

“Stones” by Dead and Lovely

Another great song from my friends in Dead and Lovely from their EP called Heavy.  I love this music.

“Johnny’s Gonna Die” by The Replacements

From Sorry Ma…. the song was written about Johnny Thunders…. but (and forgive me if I am stating the obvious), but this could easily be seen as prophetically about Bob Stinson.

“The Morning After the Coup” by Grant Peeples and the Peeples Republik

“Meet the New Boss…”  Coups are fun and all, but what comes next?  Another great song from Punishing the Myth.
