Django Reinhardt - Sweet Georgia Brown
I always like to hear a classic song played by master guitarist Django Reinhardt.

Memphis Minnie - If you See my Rooster (Please Run Him Home)
I don't think Memphis Minnie gets enough credit for her Blues guitar playing, song writing and performing talents.

Art Tatum - Jitterbug Waltz (1955)
The great piano player Art Tatum covers the Jitterbug Waltz.

The Maytals - Monkey Man
This song covered by many groups including The Specials and Amy Winehouse was written as a jab at their producer Leslie Kong.

 
Toots & the Maytals

Skatalites - Simmer Down
More great ska.  This was the first single released by the Wailers and accompanied by the Skatalites.  It was also Bob Marley's first hit as a songwriter.

The Mothers of Invention - Big Leg Emma
This hilarious song was on one side of the last 45 that I ever bought.  On the other side was "Why Don't You Do Me Right".   Both songs are now included on the Absolutely Free CD.

The Undisputed Truth - Smiling Faces Sometimes (1971)
This song was originally recorded by the Temptations in 1971, but became popular with the recording done by the Undisputed Truth later in the same year.

A Taste of Honey - Sukiyaki (classic) 1981
This is an interesting English cover of Sukiyaki - Ue wo muite arukou by Kyu Sakamoto.  Taste of Honey, as you might recall, did Boogie Oogie Oogie in 1978.

 
A Taste Of Honey

Joy Division - She's Lost Control (Live)
This is a classic alternative song by the short lived Joy Division.

The Cure - Lovesong
I've always liked the Cure's music, and like the title indicates, this is on of their classic love songs.

Modest Mouse - Float On
Another good band from Portland, OR.
