This Will No Doubt Change...

 Emmylou Harris - Magdalene Laundries.  (Joni Mitchell cover)

These bloodless brides of Jesus

If they had just once glimpsed their groom
Then they'd know, and they'd drop the stones
Concealed behind their rosaries
They wilt the grass they walk upon
They leech the light out of a room
They'd like to drive us down the drain
At the Magdalene laundries




Paul Simon - Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

I booked his rhythm section (Stimela) to record a jingle. They cancelled to work with Paul Simon. And where are they now?

Baghiti Khumalo's bass playing is awesome. I yearn for home when I hear this.


Bruce Hornsby - The way it is. 

Probably the best rock pianist ever. Great lyrics


Mark Cohn - Walking in Memphis

"She said, 'Boy are you a christian?"

I said, "Ma'am I am tonight."

A  one-hit wonder. A classic nonetheless


Van Morrison - Ain't nothing you can do

A blues cover. Not sure if it's James Brown, but every instrument sounds like a drum.


Elvis Presley - In the ghetto

Definitely the King


Roy Buchanan - Start all over again

An Arkansas Blues Man.. committed suicide... You can hear the pain in his playing



Prince - A taste of you  (Joni Mitchell cover)

Just awesome.


Van Morrison - In the Garden/ You send me (medley from Live in San Francisco)

Brian Kennedy is pure soul and the segue into Sam Cooke is perfect. 


Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road

(The screen door slams,

Mary's dress waves.

Like a vision she dances across the porch 

As the radio plays 

Roy Orbison singing for the lonely

Hey, that's me and I want you only..)
