Day 249: Kevin Ayers – Eleanor’s Cake (Which Ate Her)

This one is out of this world. Ayers isn’t always on but when he is it is this great. This is lullaby stuff. listen

Day 248: The Rolling Stones – Backstreet Girl

This one first appeared on the UK version of Between The Buttons but not the US version. It wasn’t until 1967’s Flowers that we got it. listen

Day 247: Steve Young – Seven Bridges Road

Once I came to the heartbreaking conclusion that I’d never be able to afford a copy of 1969’s Rock Salt & Nails I decided to post up this 1972 version which isn’t very far off from the original and just as magical. listen

Day 246: Buffalo Springfield – On The Way Home

Something about this song brings on waves of nostalgia that I feel I’m not old enough to deserve. listen

Day 245: Alex Chilton – All We Ever Got From Them Was Pain

Switching over to the other side of the post- Big Star output. listen

Day 244: Chris Bell – Look Up

It took me a while to dig this one. It wasn’t until I heard it in a mix that I did a double take. It is super Christian but that was Bell doing his thing. Still very Big Star-esque. listen

Day 243: Karen Dalton – Are You Leaving For The Country?

…dripping with autumn tones. listen

Day 242: Phil Ochs – Half A Century High

Though it was slow coming at first, I’ve been coming around to Phil Ochs lately. And it’s definitely songs like this lo-fi, personal song that warms me up. listen

Day 241: Odetta – Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right

What a fine example of the teacher learning from the student. listen
