songs everyone should own: van morrison – i’ve been working

I’ve been a big fan of this tune for some time now.  It’s off Van’s “His Band and the Street Choir” album from 1970 and you should probably grab it if you can.

But since I am a great guy , I found an excellent remix that Rayko did a while back, that takes the original material and makes it longer.  That pretty much took care of my only complaint about the tune.

You can download a copy of his version HERE.

songs everyone should own: the howard roberts quartet – dirty old bossa nova

Probably one of the coolest sounding songs ever made.  It may be 9am where I am right now, but if this song is on, it’s cocktail time.

Also a pretty bitchin sample used by Tribe Called Quest.

Sorry, but I’ve been working

It’s true, at times I have to work and go to school and listen to my massive horde of music to find more stuff to drop on you  guys and girls.

In the meantime, here’s a little re-edit we made of the1968  UK hit from Billie Davis,” I Want You To Be My Baby.”

songs everyone should own: james gang – alexis

For anyone who ever heard this soft rock groover and never knew who it was, it was the James Gang.  Of course this was the version of James Gang that was sans Joe Walsh, but it’s still a gem in my book!

songs everyone should own: grace jones – la vie en rose (rockamerica remix)

It’s  a damn shame that most people have no idea how awesome Grace Jones was, beyond being known as the crazy chick from that Conan movie.

This is a song that could help change that.
