The soul song monologue was a great musical device

Joe, you should do a Downtown Soulville fill-in sometime. DJ Trouble (who also has a finger on the pulse of great and under-exposed soul) did one once, and it kicked hind.

@Sem - Duke Kahanamoku, the surfing legend, would also want to get in on that.

Rockwell...the Thomas Pynchon of '80s r&b pop. "Somebody watching me" was him too, wasn't it?

Rockwell was Berry Gordy's son. He probably heard "can you give this tape to your dad" ever since he was in diapers.

Speaking of Holiday are you around next week Joe?

this is pretty watered-down Nazareth. the 80s were kind of awful to old-school hard rockers.

PKNY, it was pre-Internet. It's entirely possible.
Avatar    Mon. 5/23/16 10:58am PKNY:

And on the album with "Somebody's Watching Me", he does a cover of "Taxman". How could I have make it this far in life without hearing that.

If someone at WFMU decides to do a 3 hour set of "Taxman" covers, that better be featured!
Avatar Mon. 5/23/16 10:58am Joe McG:

@Brendan: Yeah, I'll be here for my Memorial Day special. Once I decide on what that is, we'll be in good shape! Best songs of WWII? Songs about the deceased? Only songs by people who are no longer with us? Anyone have any ideas?

Got to cut and run, Joe. Away next week, sees you later. Have a good week everyone.

how about a summer party vibe? Because soldiers go fight wars and dream about coming home to barbeques and pool parties and normalcy.

Great Mack track!

Never realized that the opening to Cocker's "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" was a Lonnie Mack tune!
Avatar Mon. 5/23/16 11:30am Mister Dobalina:

Thanks for the Mack schoolin' set, I needed it. Now I know.

Thank you thank you thank you for the Lonnie Mack tribute. Much appreciated.

Way-dug that Dylan cover.
Avatar Mon. 5/23/16 11:32am Joe McG:

@Dean: I think he might've cribbed it from somewhere else. Sounds a little like "Turn On Your Love Light" or something. @Dobalina and Mick: You bet! His catalog is really rich, full of gems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/23/16 11:32am Parq:

"New Morning" is *such* an underrated Dylan album.

When Prince and Lonnie Mack died on the same day, I knew I would have to be patient, that some FMU DJs would do some Lonnie Mack tributage by and by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/23/16 11:33am Cecile:

Same here Mr. Dobalina. I didn't know that much about him. This is great and RIP Lonnie.

I didn't know much about Guy Clark but serendipitously found a copy of the Heartworn Highways documentary at the public library last week and I'm in the process of watching it. It is good.
Avatar Mon. 5/23/16 11:42am βrian:

Heartworm Highways? Oh dear.
Avatar Mon. 5/23/16 11:42am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Ha ha, no problem! @melinda: Great movie! I'll play a song from it next.

Nice Lonnie Mack Stuff! Thanks Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/23/16 11:44am Ken From Hyde Park:

The Memorial Day show just might end up being a memorial tribute to all the artists we've lost in the past year. Lord knows we've lost quite a few.

i never realized how much guy clark's influence was... i love all his songs..

YEEEEEE HAAAAAA

@Ken: Yeah, I think I'm doing my Memorial Day show right now! Thanks for all of your suggestions, everyone, btw.
  Mon. 5/23/16 11:45am tadpoles:

madman made me think Joe...would it be too egomaniacal to do a show of (or a segment of) "Hey Joe" covers ... if there are enough??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/23/16 11:45am Cecile:

Texas cooking! that's great Memorial Day song.

Texas cooking is something. Good food down there.

Thanks for the Guy Clark songs; 'wish i'd caught the Lonnie Mack.
...never knew much about Guy Clark, but last night someone played a bunch of his stuff on the jukebox.
Good stuff.

Astonishing songwriting skills + polished performer. Hurts to lose these guys.
Avatar Mon. 5/23/16 11:51am Joe McG:

Glad you guys are enjoying the Tribute Hour. Guy Clark was a helluva great live performer. I had the good fortune to see him a number of times. Never saw Lonnie Mack, sadly.
Avatar Mon. 5/23/16 11:51am Mister Dobalina:

I'm a huge JJ Cale fan, and this sort of stuff is right up my alley. Actually, JJ Cale is my absolute favorite, EVER!
  Mon. 5/23/16 11:53am tino:

God bless Guy Clark-
My parents wore those first 2 records out in the mid 70s-
Those songs are heavy shit for little kid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/23/16 11:53am coelacanth:

"Really?" is a perfect album.
  Mon. 5/23/16 11:53am KP:

I have seen the David, Mona Lisa and Doc Watson too. Not sure about the Columbus Stockade Blues.

I am actually pretty psyched. Never been to a huge pop spectacle show like that before.

Ach, and of course netflix doesn't have the documentary available. Oy.

"Heartworm Highways": wasn't that a Hartz Mountain advertising jingle?

Walgreen's has a fine selection of ponchos. I'd splurge for a couple.
