The Escorts - By the Time I get to Phoenix
Cover of the classic that has been retouched by everyone from Isaac Hayes to Nick Cave
This one being done by a band of former convicts...really convincing shit.

Shuggie Otis - Strawberry Letter 23
OG version that didn't chart but is hella better..note the tantalizing guitar solo somewhere near the middle/end.

Freddy Scott & the 4 Steps - Same Ole Beat
Kind of a Junior Walker vibe on this cut. horn section of note.

Kenny Lynch - Half the Day's Gone and We Haven't Earned a Penny

Recession Rap, it's a mans mans world......

T. Rex - Summer Deep
Marc Bolan talking mad jive.

"A coat of grapes is on my back again / I ride upon my zebra / Pterodactyl beak hat on my brow / The truth is like a stranger"


a special shoutout to my moms and your moms on this day..
