Ride ‘Em On Down – The Rolling Stones – We are all agreed this is from the album where after all these years, Mick Jagger becomes the leader he always claimed to be. but this track at least is owned by Woody -a blistering solo that hijacks the middle.

Ride ‘Em On Down – Ed Taylor – Mississippi swamp blues by the man who taught Jimmy Reed how to play, a terrific track that was new to me, and listening to it shows exactly what the Stones gave the song: power shifts.

Fire – The Pointer Sisters – Bruce’s origin is a mix of thwarted and delivered desire, the Pointer Sisters is all fired up want: they ain’t flirting, the desire bubbles over.

The Room Where It Happens – Leslie Odom Jr – Anyone who remembers as far back as two years remembers Albany’s “three men in a room” where all New York governmental  decisions were made (and two of the three politicians are now in jail), will recognize that nothing changes. This highlight (not on the mix tape: too much story?) shows how nothing even vaguely changes: Aaron Burr wants to be in the room where Hamilton, Franklin, and Madison, made the decision to put the Capital of the nascent country in DC and the banks in nyc.

Name And Address – Wings – The third best song on London Town might not sound like much, but this is a deep catalog masterpiece with Macca doing his best Presley impression. That bass, man! He should remember it more often…

Can’t Tell Me Nothing – Kanye West – As brutal and strange a song as you will ever hear, Kanye came loose on this one as he set the place for later tracks like “Power”. The opening hook is stellar.

Helpless – Ashanti And Ja Rule – Miranda claims he based Hamilton and Hamilton’s wife Eliza on the early 00s first couple of rap. Here they repay the immortality with the best song off the “American Musical” in the best version.

In The City – The Jam – Hysterically enough, the Jam were considered a little too sophisticated for 1977 punk. The mind boggles.
