Merle Haggard and the Strangers [18:49]
"Here in Frisco"
Keep Movin' On
Capitol Records ST 11365 1975
Evidently if you're from around these parts, you don't call it Frisco. But who am I, a Yankee, to say? Anywho, that one goes out to all you loyal listeners in Shakeytown making all alone work for the last year. I can't even imagine.

The Four Tops [21:29]
"Ain't No Woman (Like the One I Got)"
Keeper of the Castle
Dunhill/ABC Records DSX 50129 1972
Tell 'em Levi. Originally recorded by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, who are three people, not four. We've had this discussion already.

Artie Shaw and his Orchestra [24:24]
"Begin the Beguine"
Kellogg's Presents Big Band Classics
RCA Special Products DPL1-0438(e) 1980
That's right kids: eat enough Frosted Flakes and you too could grow up to own a compilation of all your favorite big band numbers performed by yesterday's stars.

Jerry Reed [29:00]
"Eastbound and Down"
Kickin' Country
K-Tel WU 3600 1981
Guitar man Jerry Reed gets us ready for that beer run. Made it to number 3 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 in 1977. Jerry gets a little help from Jordinaire Gordon Stoker. And Flash, of course.

The Exbats [31:48]
"I Got the Hots for Charlie Watts"
Kicks, Hits, and Fits

Easily one of my favorite albums from 2020. And of course, Inez is right.

Roberta Flack [35:41]
Killing Me Softly
Atlantic SD 7271 1973
We heard Roberta covering Leonard Cohen on her debut album First Take, so why not hear her covering Leonard Cohen on this double platinum album?

A modal ballad from Miles recorded March 2, 1959 with John Coltrane on tenor sax, Bille Evans on piano, Paul Chambers on double bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums.

A fine take on this standard, featuring Bechet and some assistance from Jonah Jones on trumpet.
