About this Episode

Altered Images [00:29]
I Could Be Happy
Epic EPC A13 1834 1981
Have I mentioned my undying love for Clare Grogan?

Mose Allison [03:58]
"Your Mind Is on Vacation"
I Don't Worry About a Thing
Atlantic SD 1389 1962 (1966 reissue)
Sometimes, you just have to go with the classics. Featuring Mose on piano, Addison Farmer on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums.

Jim Croce [06:35]
"Workin' at the Car Wash Blues"
I Got a Name
ABC Records ABCX-797 1973
Posthumously release, this particular track made it to number 32 on the Hot 100. It was also covered by none other than The Great Gonzo.

Sammy Davis, Jr. [09:07]
"I've Got You Under My Skin"
I Gotta Be Me
Reprise Records RS 6324 1968
Usually can't go wrong with Cole Porter. Sammy appears in hippy frippery of the times on the cover.

Dire Wolves Just Exactly Perfect Sisters Band [12:57]
I Just Wasn't Made for These Set Times
Centripetal Force CF.05 2020
An album title that I can certainly relate to. Easily one of my favorite albums of 2020.

Tony Bennett [25:06]
"The Best Is Yet to Come"
I Left My Heart in San Francisco
Columbia CS 8669 1962
San Francisco has been kinda weird lately, so we'll just pretend the best is yet to come.

Loretta Lynn [28:21]
"Walking After Midnight"
I Remember Patsy
MCA Records-2265 1977
Some great harmonies going on here.

Jack La Forge, his Piano and Orchestra [30:38]
"The Cleopatra Kick"
I Remember You
Regina Records R 282 1963
Well, you know I love novelty songs.

Spiritualized [32:48]
"I Think I'm in Love (Chemical Brothers Vocal Remix)"
I Think I'm in Love
Dedicated Spirit 014T 1998
Oddly enough, this 12" remix is shorter than the album version of this song.

Gilbert O'Sullivan [41:15]
"Get Down"
I'm a Writer, Not a Fighter
MAM MAM 7 1973
Some funky-ish clavinet from Mr. O'Sullivan. We'll presume he's singing about his dog. Made it to number 7 on the Hot 100.

Divine [43:53]
"I'm So Beautiful (Divine Mix)"
I'm So Beautiful
Proto ENA(T) 121 1984
Some Hi-NRG dance music from the one and only Divine.

Buck Owens and his Buckaroos [50:25]
"I've Got a Tiger by the Tail"
I've Got a Tiger by the Tail
Capitol Records ST-2283 1965
Every day someone is born who has never heard Buck Owens and his Buckaroos. Buck takes the solo on this one, and Don Rich helps out with harmony.

Buck Owens and his Buckaroos [52:37]
"Alabama, Louisiana, or Maybe Tennessee"
I've Got You on My Mind Again
Capitol Records ST 131 1968
A little travelling music please.

Music behind the DJ: "Gomez" by Vic Mizzy
