Show #229 - The Thin White Ukes + Alison Ferrier

Radio City : Playlist for Thursday 15 February 2018

Artist | Track/Song Name | Album Title | Label/Distributor | Comments

Opening Theme: Eilen Jewell | Radio City | Queen Of The Minor Key

1. The Still | The Surely | The Still
- A mellow start to the show with this track from an excellent album introduced to me recently. The group is based in Germany and features The Necks' pianist Chris Abrahams. This album from 2016 is to date, their only release.
2. Khruangbin | Lady And Man | Con Todo El Mundo
- I played a tune off their previous album a few weeks ago but this Texas groups' 2nd album was released in the meantime.
3. Donnie Emerson's Dreamin' Wild | Searchin' | Single
- An album released by Donnie & Joe Emerson in 1979 called Dreamin' Wild is a wonderfully eclectic and slightly eccentric record which was reissued by Light In The Attic in 2012. I couldn't find a lot of information about this release but I think it is an old song that Donnie has re-recorded and released with a new band. Not sure if it's from a forthcoming release at this stage.
4. Mavis Staples | No Time For Crying | If All I Was Was Black
- This is a highlight from Mavis' latest album which was released recently.

5. Ben Harper With Charlie Musselwhite | No Mercy In This Land | No Mercy In This Land
- The first single from the 2nd collaboration album between these two after 2013's excellent Get Up! It's due for release on March 30th.
6. Groundhogs | B. D. D. | Blues Obituary
- I've been listening to the Groundhogs a bit recently and this track from their 2nd album, released in 1969 is a standout. Interestingly, the single got to number 1 in Lebanon!
7. Tyrannamen | Happiness Is Just A Stones Throw Away | Tyrannamen
- Tyrannamen will be playing at the Tote on Thursday, Feb 22nd with The Stroppies and The Blinds.
8. Cable Ties | Tell Them Where To Go | Single
