Jonathan Wilson – The Way I Feel (music video)

This is Jonathan Wilson covering a Gordon Lightfoot song, originally from the 1967 album of the same name,  The Way I Feel. Wilson included his version of “The Way I Feel” on his 2011 album, Gentle Spirit. I didn’t know it was a Lightfoot track until I read the liner notes for the record. Gentle […]

Big Boi – The Rooster (live on Chapelle’s Show in 2004)

From the second episode of the second season of Chapelle’s Show. One of the two clips from the show that helped spur me back into exploring hip hop a second time. Big Boi and his band perform “The Rooster” from OutKast’s 2003 album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.

Steely Dan – Babylon Sisters (live in 2003)

Here’s the Dan performing “Babylon Sisters” – a song about prostitution from their 1980 record Gaucho – at one of my favorite venues of all time, Pine Knob Ampitheatre. It struck me, while watching this video, that Donald Fagen is almost the spitting image of an old history professor of mine. Honestly. They could be brothers.

Steely Dan – Reelin’ In The Years (Live on The Midnight Special in 1973)

“Reelin’ In The Years” was a staple on WLAV when I was growing up. I loved it before I even knew who Steely Dan was. I remember buying Can’t Buy A Thrill at Sam Goody in the mall when I was a young teen. I bought it for the song “Do It Again”, and was […]
