Welcome to Earth: Podcast #123

from strange cargo


After a 5 3/4 months hiatus, The Shady Groove is happy to bring you an all new podcast. Chock-full of new classics and old timeless musical gems, this self-indulgent playlist that I call a radio show will be sure to please. So feel free to share with friends, listen to while your making dinner, or rock out to whilst driving. Hopefully you’ll like some of the music enough to buy the track or album or maybe even the vinyl for all you audiophiles out there. Maybe you’ll even look up the artist and check out some of their other stuff. Because that is what it’s all about. Music is about finding what moves you. And we should always and consistently be searching, listening to something you never thought you would…I encourage you to listen to the full album, listen to the b-sides and rarities. That’s where you find the gold; the realness..

The following is a list of the tastefully curated audio tracks that were played on this podcast:

Sturgill Simpson – Welcome to Earth (Pollywog) ++ Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings – We Get Along ++ St. Paul & The Broken Bones – All I Ever Wonder ++ Chuck Berry – Roll Over Beethoven ++ The Rolling Stones – Let It Bleed ++ The Flying Burrito Brothers – Christine’s Tune ++ The Sheepdogs – Plastic Man ++ Cake – Arco Arena ++ Vampire Weekend – Oxford Comma ++ Weezer – El Scorcho ++ Tedeschi Trucks Band – Anyhow ++ Wilco – Normal American Kids ++ Mark Knopfler – Skydiver ++ Quiet Life – Live Wire ++ Dawes – When the Tequila Runs Out ++ Jimmy Smith – Whiskey and Blood ++

Shady Groove Podcast #30: Slightly Funky


Well, Well. 30 podcasts down. Many more to come…

My objective when I started this blog and podcast was to educate, and entertain.  I want to bring you some great music that maybe you don’t hear everyday.  Introduce you to some rare gems that may or may not be in your iPods or cd players or on your turntables.  I’m interested in the b-sides.  The rarities.  The songs on the album that are not the radio hits.  That is where the real magic occurs.  When a band makes an album they put a great deal of effort into deciding where a given song may go on the album, so that the album “flows”, or tells a story. I hope that you all make an effort to listen to the “whole” album. It really makes a difference in the overall feel.  So listen to the SG podcasts, be entertained, and buy the album if you like the song.

Anyway, enough rambling by me.  Check out podcast #30.  Just another bomb set of music from your favorite blogger.

SG Podcast #30 includes these musical musings:

10cc – Dreadlock Holiday ++ Junior Murvin – Police and Thieves ++ Talking Heads – (Nothing But) Flowers ++ Booker T. & The MG’s – Hang Em High ++ Booker T. Jones (feat. Matt Berninger & Sharon Jones) – Representing Memphis ++ Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings – I’m Not Gonna Cry ++ Uncle Tupelo – New Madrid ++ Bow Thayer – Wingless Angels ++ Eddie Spaghetti – Some People Say ++ Cake – You Part The Waters ++ Paul McCartney and Wings – Let Me Roll It ++ The Strokes – Undercover of Darkness ++ Taj Mahal – Fishin’ Blues ++ The Gourds – High Highs and Low Lows
