Neil Young and Crazy Horse [mm:ss]
"Lotta Love"
Comes a Time
Reprise Records MSK 2266 1978
200,000 copies of this album may have been used as shingles for one of Neil Young's barns.

The Capes & Masks [mm:ss]
"The Wedding of Mr. Universe and Fantastic Gal"

Ah, humor. Ar. Ar.

Some mighty fine Motown-esque orchestrations.

The Tubes [mm:ss]
"Talk to Ya Later"
The Completion Backward Principle
Capitol Records SOO-12151 1981
Credibility. Growth. Direction. Aspiring! This song was one of my favorites in the early days of MTV.

Zola Jesus [mm:ss]
Sacred Bones Records SBR-062 2011
Don't know why I love this song so much, but I do.

Erroll Garner [mm:ss]
"Carmel Mambo"
Concert by the Sea
Columbia CL 883 1956
Mambo bob? Recorded live in Carmel CA of course.

Bob Marley & the Wailers [mm:ss]
"Buffalo Soldier"
Island Records 90085-1
The first posthumous release of Marley material, this album reached 55 on the Billboard 200.

New Order [mm:ss]
Factory Fac 93 1983
Bark bark bark.

Kowloon Walled City [mm:ss]
"Wrong Side of History"
Container Ships
Brutal Panda Records BPR-17 2012
Seems like an appropriate song for these times. Again.

Couch Slut [mm:ss]
"Penalty Scar"
Gilead Media RELIC86 2017
Some heavy noise rocking from NYC.

Rene Amont and the Internationals [mm:ss]
"La Cumparsita"
Continental Cocktails

Tango till you're sore.

Prince [mm:ss]
Warner Bros Records BSK 3601 1981

Josie Cotton [mm:ss]

Solid new wave 60s girl group pop.

Charley Pride [mm:ss]
"Is Anybody Goin' to San Antone?"
Country Music
Time Life STW-101 1981
A number one hit for Charley, and of course a killer verion by Doug Sahm a little later. And evidently there is a folky Nancy Sinatra version, and even a Swedish version that translates to "Can Anybody Tell Me when the Train Departs?"

Music behind the DJ: "Goin' Out of My Head" by Frank Comstock and his Orchestra
