Jimmy Cliff – One More (Live on Letterman in 2012)

Jimmy Cliff released his first album in 8 years last year. It’s called Rebirth. One of the best songs off it is “One More”. My son loves the song. After hearing the whole album a few times in my car, that’s the song he keeps singing. It’s very catchy. Here’s Cliff and his band performing […]

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band – Rosalita (Live In The Late 70s)

I’m not sure if this is the same video I used to see on MTV when I was a kid, but if it’s not, I still enjoyed the hell out of it. If you like Bruce, you will, too. He ain’t here on business; he’s only here for fun.

Rush – Tom Sawyer (music video)

Every once in a while, I make a music purchase to backfill part of my music collection. Something I used to have, but sold for one idiotic reason or another in my younger days. The days before I implemented my “don’t sell anything from your music collection ever” rule, to which I now strictly adhere. […]

John Hiatt – Cry Love (Live on Sessions at West 54th in 1997)

The first time I heard John Hiatt was when I was living in Austin, around the time his 1995 album Walk On was released. The single “Shredding The Documents” was getting a lot of airplay on local radio. It’s a hilarious song. The song stuck with me, but I didn’t actually get the album until 1998, when […]

David Bowie – Five Years (Live on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1972)

“Five Years” leads off Bowie’s 1972 masterwork The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Conceptually, the song is about the five years humanity has left before some global catastrophe. Lyrically, it’s stands with the best of Bowie’s work. One of my favorite verses: I think I saw you in an […]

Allman Brothers – I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (live in 2013)

I don’t often post videos of the Allman Brothers, but when I do, I guess I post a few in quick order. So here’s another one, also from their recent run at the Beacon. “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” is one of my favorite Otis Redding songs. This is a solid cover.

Richard Thompson – Shoot Out The Lights (Live on Spectacle in 2009)

Earlier tonight, a buddy reminded me that Richard Thompson has a new album out. I haven’t heard it myself, but he says it’s pretty outstanding, particularly a song called “Good Things Happen To Bad People”. I certainly like the title. So that reminded me, of course, of the kick ass Richard Thompson track (and album […]
