"Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye"
Atlantic SD 8230 1969
Roberta Flack's debut album, featuring this great take on the Leonard Cohen song. Ron Carter plays bass joins her on bass, along with Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar and Ray Lucas on drums. Released in 1969, it made it to number 1 in... 1972 thanks to the inclusion of "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" in the Clint Eastwood film Play Misty for Me.
The Hollies [10:04]
"Say It Ain't So Jo"
Five Three One - Double Seven O Four
Polydor 2442-160 1979
Hey, if it plays I'll play it. A very scritchedy scratchedy cover of Murray Head's single 1975. Yes, the album title spells out Hollies in caclulator-ese.

This track made it to number 62 on the Hot 100 in 1984.
Fleetwood Mac [19:07]
"Say You Love Me"
Reprise MS 2225 1975
Sure it might be the season of the witch, but I'm feeling Christine a bit more at the moment. Maybe it's the banjo, I don't know. This song made it to number 11 on the Hot 100 in 1976. The album itself is multiplatinum. For those of you who need some Rhiannon in your life, check out S04E51.
Lene Lovich [23:17]
Stiff-Epic JE 36308 1980
A woman after my own heart. Lovich decided to record this Four Seasons number after picking up their single in a second hand shop.

From an album that donated all profits to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation.
Thee Oh Sees [38:10]

I'm not sure my mind is a right mind, but I think this is an excellent song from the living legend.

Huh, a creepy case of mistaken identity?

Rod Stewart [58:38]
"You're in My Heart (The Final Acclaim)"
Foot Loose & Fancy Free
Warner Bros. Records BSK 3092 1977
In which Rod compares you to his favoite football clun (Celtic Utd). I was going to go with Holland & Dozier's "You Keep Me Hangin' On" but it's nearly 8 goddamn minutes long. What the hell, dude?
