Neil Young and Crazy Horse [mm:ss]
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.

Comic Book Heroes
Mainstream Records 56069 1966
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.

Sacred Bones Records SBR-062 2011
Don't know why I love this song so much, but I do.
Erroll Garner [mm:ss]
Concert by the Sea
Columbia CL 883 1956
Mambo bob? Recorded live in Carmel CA of course.
Bob Marley & the Wailers [mm:ss]
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"
Brutal Panda Records BPR-17 2012
Seems like an appropriate song for these times. Again.
Couch Slut [mm:ss]
Gilead Media RELIC86 2017
Some heavy noise rocking from NYC.
Rene Amont and the Internationals [mm:ss]
Modern Records MLP 7024
Tango till you're sore.
Warner Bros Records BSK 3601 1981
We DID live on a planet over run by tourists.
Josie Cotton [mm:ss]
"He Coule Be the One"
Elektra 60140 1982
Solid new wave 60s girl group pop.
Charley Pride [mm:ss]
"Is Anybody Goin' to San Antone?"
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
