I can't think of a better way to end my week than Van the Man and Tom Jones! With a side order of Jeff Beck. Thanks for putting up with me all week, and thanks to hungry joe for keeping an eye on me.
If you're not familiar with it, you should check out the album Ronnie made with Peter Townshend in the late 70's called "Rough Mix". A wonderful little album. Actually, all of Ronnie's post Faces recordings are worth hunting down. He was a vastly underappreciated talent and died way too young.
Hey, look another Nick Lowe group! I could do this all week folks.
Just a little classic Senagalese reggae to jump start your morning.
Once upon a time a couple of my favorite musicians, Nick Lowe & John Hiatt, formed a group along with Ry Cooder and Jim Keltner. The group was never as good as the sum of its parts, but was a lot of fun for one album and tour.
A few years ago Billie Joe Armstrong teamed up with Norah Jones for an album of Everly Brothers tunes called "Foreverly".
This was from The Monkees 2016 reunion, the song was written by Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie. BTW for anyone on the West Coast, Michael Nesmith is reforming The First National Band and doing a mini-tour
Erin go bragh, laddies!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! (or as they say in Omerha, "Hey, the beer tent opens at 6 am!")
That's it for Rowsdower Week, thanks for listening, it's been a real pleasure. I've had a blast this week, thanks for puttin' up with the old guy. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programing.
Oh, what the heck one more for the road...
I still love Stevie's debut album.
It mad a big impression on this teenager back in '78.
What kind of guy is he...
Yes, that Country Roads
Toots is one of the few artists I can think of that can even make John Henry Deutschenforf sound funky.
And he can sound a lot like Otis...
