Ted Hawkins Green-Eyed Girl The Next Hundred Years Beautiful and passionate, sung by a man who lived in a sad time where a black man singing a love song to a green-eye girl could find himself on the wrong side of a self-righteous mob.
Ted Hawkins The Lost Ones Watch Your Step A Sam Cooke influence vocal singing what amounts to a child's horror story. A single mother is dying, the medicine is gone, the cupboard is empty, there's no phone and her children don't know what to do. Hawkins, singing as the oldest, paints a child in panic as every avenue a young boy can think of is blocked.
Ted Hawkins Bring it on Home Daddy Watch Your Step I only just discovered Hawkins a few weeks ago. I am now grabbing everything he has ever recorded. It's been a long time since I have encountered an artist previously unknown to me who was that great.
Barrington Levy Sister Carol Englishman Re-release of classic reggae album introduced this lovely ballad to me.
Sharon Jones & the DAP-Kings 100 Days, 100 Nights 100 Days, 100 Nights In the first 30 seconds of this song Jones and co. prove what a fraud Amy Winehouse is.
Bettye Lavette Before the Money Came Before the Money Came In her latest single Lavette comes right out and tells those American Idol and Winehouse fans what they could learn from the over 50-likes of Sharon Jones and herself.
Roger Clyne Plenty No More Beautiful World Latest release
Rilo Kiley Silver Lining Under the Blacklight Recent release
