Song Of The Day: Nov. 14, 2018

Saturday, June 7, 2008 was an ungodly sweltering evening. The weather killed walk-up sales for Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express, whose performance that night at the Arden Gild Hall was every bit as torrid as the weather. During this song late in the set, a fuse (or something) blew, and the audience sang the […]

I booked Bettye LaVette at the Arden Gild Hall back in 2005 when she made her comeback with ‘I’ve Got My Own Hell To Raise’.  She’s become one of the greatest voices and song interpreters of our generation.  Here’s one that she performed at the Gild Hall (Lucinda Williams’ Joy) and one she performed at […]

‘Hey, El Som, how about doing a week of songs from artists you’ve booked at the Gild Hall?’ Wh-why, what a great idea!  Think I’ll start with vocalist supreme Cat Russell:

In case you haven’t guessed by now, if there was only one genre of music that I could listen to for the rest of my life, it’d be the sweet soul music of the ’60s and early ’70’s. Heard this one last night while driving home from recording the first DL podcast with the Righteous […]

I was out running errands yesterday, and XPN was playing a whole bunch of Joni Mitchell songs in a row.  I was afraid that she had passed away, and listened to the songs in that context. I actually became depressed. Thankfully, they were celebrating her 75th birthday, and I was listening to side 2 of […]

A soul adrenaline rush for Election Day. Can you believe that this song was the flip side? The A side was ‘Bernadette’, but still, this absolutely kicks ass. Hey, I got a feelin’:

Heard this great soul classic on the way home from work yesterday. BTW, if you want to know why white boys should be discouraged from covering these songs, check out the Rolling Stones’ version which, out of empathy for my listeners, I will not post here:

Leyla McCalla’s coming to the Arden Gild Hall on Sat., Jan. 12, 2019. Here’s the title track of her new album. Recorded in N’Awlins, as if you couldn’t tell: Hey, if you buy tix to the show, just go to the bar, tell ’em that El Somnambulo sent you, and your first libation will be […]
