Under the Covers with The Shady Groove: Podcast #130



We’re back with another of the famous Theme-Time Radio shows from The Shady Groove. Today we go under the covers and explore the righteous genre of cover songs. I absolutely love when bands cover other bands. It is the highest form of flattery for a musician. Its the ultimate tribute. I love to see the variety of different directions an artist can take in recreating a favorite song. And then there’s the good, bad, and ugly. Some covers can rival or even surpass the original. Some can not even come close to being as good as the original. Either way, its an entertaining genre that will continue to delight forever..So enjoy this edition of The Shady Groove Podcast. Listen loud, sing along, have fun. Live it, love it!

What’s In A Track Number? Shady Groove Podcast #69

Record Player Washed Ashore


Howdy, all you Shady Groovers out there. Though I’d try something new on this weeks podcast. Here we explore the art of track selection on albums. Each song on this podcast is selected in succession in terms of track number on its own given album. For example, track #1, Floating Bridge by Gregg Allman, is the 1st track on Low Country Blues, California Stars is track #2 on Billy Bragg and Wilco’s Mermaid Avenue, and so on and so forth. My hope was that it would “flow”, like listening to an album the whole way through. Let me know what you think.

Podcast 69 included these finely tuned and well-placed musical tracks:

Gregg Allman – Floating Bridge ++ Billy Bragg and Wilco – California Stars ++ Leon Russell – Make You Feel Good ++ Alabama Shakes – Rise To The Sun ++ Brother Josephus – O Moses ++ Michael Kiwanuka – Bones ++ Elvis Costello – (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes ++ Boz Scaggs – Loan Me A Dime ++ The Black Keys – So He Won’t Break ++ Bob Dylan & The Band – Apple Suckling Tree ++ Cake – I Bombed Korea ++ Mark Mothersbaugh – Piranas Are A Very Tricky Species ++ The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Bold As Love ++ The Gourds – Pushed Her Down
