Isley Brothers - Who's That Lady

Five brothers strong and a brother-in-law for good measure on this one. Man oh man, Ernie Isley could play that guitar all night long. If only the volume on my stereo could go up to "11." Keep smilin' as you bob your head - I'm just keepin' it real...

Average White Band - Work To Do

More from the '70s. Nothing like a little funk from Scotland...

Beach Boys - One of their Best

On break from working outside. Feels good to come in and warm up for just a bit. So much to do but with today's inspiration from Gabriel and my daily Eclectipundit fix, a seed is planted.

Vocals, vocals and more perfect vocals. And Dennis had the grunge look down way back then - drummers rule. I'm on a roll...

Elliot Lurie and Looking Glass

The boyz from Rutgers University scored twice in the early 70s. Lurie sure had a distinctive voice and the band played some tight back in the day. Proof positive here.

Early Morning Inspiration a la Peter Gabriel

Sun's just coming up. Everyone's sleeping in the old home but Bella and me...

Marc Cohn - Walking In Memphis

Stopped to get gas and spotted a family of five each wearing a Saints jersey. Couldn't help but smile. Also noticed that their old car had a Tennessee plate...

Alvin Lee - The Bluest Blues

Back home for Thanksgiving. Feels good to spend a little time with caring family, old friends and special neighbor. Needed something with feeling and just right tonight. One of my favorites by Mr. Lee & Company gets it done.

Los Lobos - Don't Worry Baby

And the Jb&S Deuce Music Award goes to Los Lobos for the killer guitar work on this bad boy right here. Man, how these cats did play back in the day.

Joe Ely - Me & Billy the Kid

For the history buffs among us...

Kieran Kane - Cool Me Down

Good one for what's deep down inside...

John Hiatt - The Open Road

Great lyrics, great sound. Got to hand it to the Man - no sign of tapering off whatsoever...

Happy Birthday Secret Agent Man

You can bet the folks in Baton Rouge are celebrating large time this weekend - the Tigers got by Nick & the Tide yesterday and today the kid from Baton Rouge High turns 68. My younger brothers and I thought that this was the coolest song ever way back when. Thanks Johnny Rivers.

Jimmy Robinson - Acoustic Extraordinaire

One for E of Eclectipundit.com fame - Congrats on the new gig! I think you will dig this one. If you want to check out Mr. Robinson live some time, drop by New Orleans' Carrollton Station for a cold one.

Aaron Neville - Jb&S "All Aboard" Award Winner

Folks back home know there's only one thing to do when the A-train comes to town - hey if you don't believe me just ask Linda Ronstadt...
