Playing tracks by
Moby Grape, Escape Club, Dianne Reeves, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and more.
Several dreary rainy days spawned this playlist and two others. This one is more in keeping with my self-perceived strength of stringing together tunes recorded across 5 decades or more that, with a little finesse, fit together.
There are groups you run across (whatever your history of music may be) that push the music scene around them and then disappear from view. Moby Grape is one of those. Gone, and remembered by only a few.
If you don’t know Billie already, fix that, soon.
Annie Lennox is one of those artists that if you take the time to pick through her work, you’ll find any number of gems that work for you.
“Rain Down On Me” is the tune that turned me onto Blue Rodeo. Why they aren’t bigger in “The States” is a mystery to me.
Lauren, this one’s dedicated to you. You went out on a limb to follow your dream with WildFlour in Charleston. We all throw pebbles into the waters of life, not knowing how the ripples play out. Your push pushed me. Thank you.
