Steve Earle – Guitar Town (1986)


This was the second single released from the album of the same name, which reached # 1 on the US Country Chart. The song reached # 7 on the US Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart, and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Song in 1987.




David Gilmour – Smile (2006)

From Gilmour’s 2006 album On An Island. Smile reached # 72 on the UK Singles Chart. The album reached # 1 on the UK Albums chart, and # 3 on the US Top Rock Albums chart.




David Gilmour – A Boat Lies Waiting (live, 2015)

A live version of a track from Gilmour’s 2015 album Rattle That Lock, with David Crosby and Graham Nash reprising their harmony vocals from the studio version. A vocal sample from former Pink Floyd band mate Rick Wright, who passed away in 2008, is also used.




David Gilmour – 5 A.M. (2015)

The opening instrumental track from Rattle That Lock.




Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell – Dueling Banjos (1972)

Originally written in 1954 by Arthur Smith under the title Feudin’ Banjos, it gained popularity for its appearance in the film Deliverance. Ironically, the filmmakers neglected to get permission to use the song, and lost a lawsuit filed by Smith. Even more ironically, the song was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Original Song category.

It went to # 2 for four weeks on the Billboard Top 200, and reached # 1 on both the Cashbox and Record World pop charts. It also went to No. 5 on the Hot Country Singles chart at the same time it was on the Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary Singles charts.

Chicago –
Movin’ In (1970)


Terry Kath sings lead vocals on this song written by band trombonist James Pankow, the opening track from Chicago II.




Chicago – Something In This City Changes People (1973)

From Chicago VI, written by keyboardist Robert Lamm. Unusual in that the co-lead vocals include Lamm, Kath, Peter Cetera, and trumpeter Lee Loughnane.




Chicago – Saturday In the Park (1972)

From Chicago V, which went to # 1 on the US Billboard 200, while this single from the album reached # 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.




Andy Williams – The Bells of St. Mary’s (1965)

I was a big fan of Andy Williams when I was a kid. Always tuned in to his variety show, which ran from 1962 to 1971 on NBC.

The song was written in 1917, and was revived for the 1945 film of the same name, which starred Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman.




Alex North – Title Theme, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Film director Stanley Kubrick had commissioned North to create a score for the film, based on the temporary tracks being used, but Kubrick chose to abandon North's music in favor of the now-familiar classical pieces he had earlier chosen as temporary music for the film during post-production.

Legend has it that North only discovered his score had been discarded when attending the premiere.

This is part of that original score. You can hear the deliberate ripples of Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarasthustra in North’s score

Why does Fripp continue to indulge that cheesy soft-focus artwork by whatshername?

Anyway, for me tonight it was Led Zeppelin's Presence album from 1976.
Possibly their most overlooked album but the artwork was just as suspect.
