      1. Barry Goldberg “I Think I’m Gonna Cry”
      –a wonderful organ player and a fine songwriter. the second side of this album [“Blasts From My Past”] is great.

      2. Miss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th Grade Class “Buildin’ A Heaven On Earth”
      –from a somewhat forgotten and curious record which came out in the early 1970s by a school teacher from Mill Valley, CA. always puts a smile on my face and reminds me of home.

      3. Brenton Wood “Baby You Got It”
      –one of my favorite voices. great hard-panned stereo arrangement of a perfectly simple and addictive song.

      4. Roger Shriver “Life Is Like A River”
      –the mellowest of mellow moments on another wonderful and unsung album.

      5. Sonoko “Wedding With God”
      –captivatingly strange and otherworldly song by this Japanese singer from the always interesting Crammed label. this album is one of my favorites.

      6. The Beau Brummels “Sad Little Girl”
      –great harmonies by the San Francisco’s original response to the Fab Four. folk-rock at it’s finest.

      7. John Cale “Cleo”
      –one of Cale’s catchiest tunes from his first solo outing. backed by Grinder’s Switch (of Garland Jeffreys’ notoriety). great piano playing.

      8. Skeeter Davis “Optimistic”
      –i could listen to Skeeter sing all day long. my favorite female country singer.

      9. Jeffrey Cain “Mockingbird”
      –great album on the Youngblood’s Racoon imprint. the shambolic groove of this tune is a doozy.

      10. John Compton “Look Out”
      –total Bearsville session vibe from the former Appaloosa member and partner of Robin Batteau on the classic Compton & Batteau album. loose and fluid playing and great songs.
