1. Bodhisatta Live – Steely Dan – “If it’s good to ya,  it’s gotta be good for ya…” Jerome Aniton was the truck driver for Steely Dan during their early 70’s tours. It is June, 1974. Steely Dan is playing at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in sunny California). Jerome, intoxicated beyond the Milky Way, steps on stage to introduce the band…” – A

2. Feel Like Makin’ Love – D’Angelo – It is not so much that this cuts Roberta Flack’s original version, it is that it takes it elsewhere, a very rhythmic gorgeousness that set the table for new r&b – A

3. Summer Breeze – Seals And Croft – This has the windy winding of a dream night, all keyboards and soft restlessness of thought. Plus the lick is magical and the sweet days of summer are like beach front waves of nostalgia – A

4. Bonny Boys – Thompson, Linda Thompson – Off the Thompson Family album and if Linda shows up on January 31st I will personally flip out; a gorgeous ode to her children – A

5. Illuminati – Madonna – The Kanye track, nice chorus, great backing track. The lyrics though -meh… – A-

6. Betray My Heart – D’Angelo –  So close but where is the hook, is it that the chorus is in the wrong key? Maybe that’s it – B+

7. Summer Wind – Frank Sinatra – This is later period Sinatra and is like a sidewise “Sand In My Shoes”  – A+

8. I’ve Got Sand In My Shoes – The Drifters – “The heatwave and the crowds are just old news…” – A+

9. He’s A rebel – The Crystals – Smart marching beat just below the surface – A

10. I’ll Think Of A Reason Later – Lee Ann Womack – Her best song – A+
