Continuing from my Streamable Track Gots - Jun 07 article
, here's my monthly installment of goodies, from my streamable track wants
All tracks on Aaron Neville
's My Greatest Gift
have become streamable, bringing a couple of my favourites with them: Hercules
and Tell It Like It Is
I think, first heard Amy Winehouse's Rehab
on Later...with Jools Holland
, now it's streamable :)
Dropping the mood, for a couple of tracks: B.B. King's The Thrill Is Gone
and Bruce Springsteen's Streets of Philadelphia
(sacrilegious to some, I'm sure, but one of the few of The Boss's tracks I like).Serrado
is the track that first got me into Djavan, when it appeared in Gilles Peterson
's Gilles Peterson in Brazil
selection. The track's a luscious latin swing fest', the vocal gymnastics are amazing, yet so natural - Prepare to dance, this track's a joy!
Four Tet's She Moves She
suffered from misassigned audio for a while - now proper stuff streams again :)
Heatwave's Boogie Nights
is amongst the first 100 tracks I bought - great, great, great to now have this to add to radios!
I first got to know John McLaughlin
, as a boy, through my father's Mahavishnu Orchestra
albums. Electric Guitarist
is the only solo album, of his, that I own. This album deserves an article of it's own - a galaxy of jazz fusion
stars session here - see Jazz-Rock-Fusion-Guitar.BlogSpot.com
to get an idea. Jack Bruce
's bass on Are You The One? Are You The One?
is characteristically outstanding and New York On My Mind
is my favourite of the more traditional tracks.
Another two tracks that've returned from a streamability hiatus Ladytron's He Took Her to a Movie
and Republica's Ready to Go
Sarah Vaughan's In a Sentimental Mood
is the first of two tracks, this month, contributing to the streamability of my Slushy Grooves - 1: DJ Scrawl 1992 PTT
(a tag copy of a 1992 mixtape). Not my favourite recording, which's found on The Duke Ellington Songbook, Vol. 1
, but excellent all the same.
The whole of The Faint's Danse Macabre Remixes
album has become streamable :) Including the DJ's joy The Conductor (Thin White Duke Remix)
- this track rocks and's extremely easy to mix with!
I'd like to know more about For the Love of Money
, back in the early 80s there were so many covers of it, it's easy to assume this The O'Jays version is the original, but may be not.
I first came to know the song through Defunkt's For the Love of Moneycover
, just listen to Kim Clarke
slamming the bass on that one! IMO, Kim's one of the best female bass players the world's ever seen!
Van Morrison's Crazy Love
is another contributor to the Slushy Grooves
Finally, Zap Mama's Take Me Coco
is another welcome return to streamability, after a few months away (and in mistagging land).
All of these are available, for you delight and delectation,
on my Formerly Streamable Track Wants Jul 07
or, more broadly, on my Formerly Streamable Track Wants 07
Enjoy! - Ian :D Streamable Track Wants
