New tunage for Thursday....

Hey....I guess that first venture out wasn't so I'm back with some more stuff. Hope you enjoy it. Again, I'm going random....I'm posting whatever comes up on Eyetunes may like it, maybe not. I hope so, tho. :) Give me feedback if you have it, requests, criticisms, whatever....Remember, if you're looking for something, chances are that I have it, or I can find it fast. 

Link to today's tunes:

Todays' menu:

Dave Clark Five-Don't You Realize (1965)
From the "Catch us if you can" LP.
Buck Washington-Save the roach for me
One of the all-time best '30s 'reefer' songs! Buck Washington (1903-1955) was an African-American dancer, recognized as one of vaudeville's best-known all-around entertainers and innovators. You can't not love this song!
Joan Baez-The Lass From The Low Country
From A 1976 Vanguard reissue of some older Joan tracks.
Brenda lee-Heart in hand (1962)
A single from 1962 that reached #15 on the US charts.
Kay Starr-I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm (Stuhr Remix)
A interesting remix of a classic Kay Starr track.....I'm not often big on this stuff, but this one is ok, IMHO.....
Angela Gheorghiu; Anthony Pappano: Royal Opera House Orchestra-Puccini: Tosca - Vissi D'Arte, Vissi D'Amore
One of my favourite sopranos, Angela Gheorghiu, singing the Vissi d'arte, from Act II of Tosca.
Estelle-Magnificent (featuring Kardinal Offishall)
From Estelle's 2008 CD, Shine.
Kurt Elling-In The Winelight (2003)

Ataris cover of Skid Row's "I remember you", from the "Punk goes metal"
Funkadelic-Standing on the verge of getting it on (1974)

What more can I say.....Carlos doing words :) 
Cee Pee Johnson Orchestra-Jumping in the groove
Live from a transcript of a Jubilee broadcast on 12/20/1943...seriously ass kicking!

She's always excellent. I think this one was also on the Weeds Volume 2 soundtrack. I love these lyrics!!

I have a thang for early jazz violinists :) This one features Joe with Jimmy Dorsey & Eddie Lang, if I recall......nice!
Barry White-You See The Trouble With Me
It's Barry.....are any words of mine gonna do it justice? nahhhhhh.....

Amy Winehouse-Someone To Watch Over Me (Original Demo)
A really interesting rendition of the standard....when I first heard it, I was surprised.

The Lost Fingers-Billie Jean
The marvelous Quebec City jazz manouche trio do a serious Django on Michael Jackson....tres Cooooool!!
Rodrigo Y Gabriela-Orion
And while we're on the acoustic thing, here's the Mexico City duo with an excellent flamenco cover of Metallica's "Orion".
