1. Whistle – Jejune’d – From our own Mary Magpie’s Ghosts That We Knew, an ambient distorted track, like in the old days when you leave the TV on overnight and the station goes off the air, is matched with a single note by single note piano composition and Mary’s disengaged voice – A-

 

 

2. Dirt Floor – Dan Whitley – Dan Whitley performs Chris Whitley’s “Wild Country” with Calvin Weston on drums at the 3rd annual Chris Whitley celebration, Bellows Falls Opera House, April 26, 2008. The original is a 2 minutes plus acoustic blues, Dan’s version is a five minutes plus the wind began to howl guitar drums freak out – A

 

3. Tombstone Blues Chamber Music Version – Bob Dylan – Off the Michael Bloomfield box set, it highlights the Bloomfield lick just after the chorus – A

4. Award Of The Year Award – You Blew It! – The hard crunch of power pop punk, it comes across as a variant on emo – B+

5. Man Smart – Harry Belafonte – Incipient sexism? Sure but it was 1958 and this live from Carnegie Hall calypso take is a masterful expression of the world music giants artistry – A

6. I Try – Macy Gray – Made her an instantaneous star not because it is a soulful song but because her husky but high voice is impossibly original – A-

7. Lead Man Holler – Harry Belafonte – Down in the mines, dangerous stuff, and Harry tells the story, “down you go for the working dollar”. – A-

8. Temple – Kings Of Leon – Nice little metaphor working for em off the last album – B+

9. Harder Better Faster Stronger – Daft Punk – This is where Kanye West got “Stronger” – A-

10. The Groom’s Still Waiting At The Altar Live – Bob Dylan – Bloomfield’s farewell, his last live performance ever, is a stupendous full on electric dominating guitar fast and all over the place till he takes his instrumental break and finally outros into rock and roll history – A+
