WE ALL HAVE STORIES

227 days ago
I’ve recently put Bill Withers’s “Stories” back in heavy rotation (Heat Rocks related) and have been chasing covers of it. Joey Dosik does one on his album from last year (and I love that he sings it acapella to open his gigs) but I also came... more info

Byron Daugherty: Golden Lady (Gatsby, 1972) Shout out to Lake Elsinore’s finest aka “the back door man.” I scooped this off the recent Craig Moerer pop-up at Rapp Cats and it was impossible for me to resist. Stevie Wonder cover? Check. He... more info

NINA SIMONE: TO LOVE SOMEBODY (1968)

557 days ago
Nina Simone: To Love Somebody (RCA Victor, 1968) This song absolutely slays. It’s a radical remake of The Bee-Gee’s original, taking a pleasant ballad and having Nina utterly flip into a high energy, uptempo jam. Every time I hear this, I ju... more info
