Johnny Marr - Easy Money

Track 2 off of Johnny Marr's new album Playland and the first single to be released
with the state of the charts at the moment, it 
probably won't chart, but its a great track none the less!!

George Ezra - Budapest

Keep hearing this on the radio, I was a bit shocked to see the video and find the guy was a 21 year old white guy. Reached the sunny heights of No 68 in the UK charts last month.........bloody criminal!

The Faces - Stay With Me

Been a while since I posted, so I thought I'd throw in one of my favourite 70's classics.
"Stay with Me" was written by Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood and was first released 
on the Faces in 1971 on their album A Nod Is As Good As A Wink... To A Blind Horse
It reached No 6 in the UK and No17 in the USA

Dimas III - I won't love you again

I heard this track for the first time the other day, listening to Huey Morgan on his Radio 2 show. Not sure when this was released as I'm finding it a little hard tracking down anything about Mr Garza. Its kind of a cross between Doo -Wop and James Brown Soul??? If that makes any sense???
Well I like it anyway!

David Allan Coe - Sweet Vibrations

I was driving to work the other day listening to the radio when a song came on, which annoyed the hell out of me, Florida Georgia Line feat Nelly - Cruise. What an absolute pile of sh!t. And then the DJ announced that its been No1 on the US Country Charts for 24 weeks. Why? This is not Country Music, its Pop!!!
So I thought I'd treat you all to a proper bit of Country from David Allan Coe's 1975 4th Album "Once upon a Rhyme.

That's more like it!!!!

The Vaccines - I Always Knew

I Always Knew was released in the UK in November last year, it was the third single from The Vaccines second studio album, "Come of Age". As with most of the modern music I seem to like it got nowhere in the UK charts, reaching the staggering climbs of No 169!!!!
This track reminds me of the 60's band "The Tornadoes", that twangy Joe Meek sound is just brilliant!

The Doors - Touch Me

Today's post is a tribute to the Doors keyboard maestro Ray Manzarek, who died earlier this week. Touch Me was realised late in 1968 and reached the No 3 spot in  the US charts early in '69. For some reason it failed to chart here in the UK??
This is one of my top 5 Doors tracks, honestly I could have picked any track.
