The List, 4-14-12

 The list, Saturday afternoon. The Chevy ad; my first car was a 54 Chevy Delray. I was only a few years older than the car.

1. All Along the Watchtower, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix. Dylan thought this was better than his own.
2. LA Woman, Jim Morrison, The Doors.
3. Henry, John Dawson, New Riders of the Purple Sage. Baer Charlton suggested "Riders", Henry is really a driving song. 8-)
4.Free Bird, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Suggested by Richard Christie/Framemaker. 
There are multiple versions of this, including some live performances over 20 minutes. "Long" form, indeed. See East West, #10
5. Little Wing, Jimi Hendrix. I like his version, Eric Clapton has covered it, but my favorite is an instrumental cover by Stevie Ray Vaughan. I was introduced to this by TOP.
6. Pipeline, The Chantays
7. Back in the USSR, The Beatles, suggested by Kim Hoffmann
8. Fire on the Mountain, Toy Caldwell (?), The Marshall Tucker Band.
9. Radar Love, George Kooymans/Barry Hay, Golden Earring.
10. East West, Mike Bloomfield/Nick Gravenites, Paul Butterfield Blues Band. This is a very important piece by a band that influenced the San Francisco sound, including the Grateful Dead, and their "long" versions. 
11. Dancing in the Dark, Bruce Springsteen. My cousin, Dave Westrum, suggested some other Springsteen songs, but ...
12. Candyman, Hunter/Garcia, The Grateful Dead
13. Wild Horses, Jagger/Richards, The Rolling Stones
14. Except the New Girl, Chris Isaak, Chris Isaak
15. Small Axe, Bob Marley, Bob Marley and the Wailers
16. Rebel Rouser, Duane Eddy. There are multiple versions by Duane alone.
17. Born to be Wild, Mars Bonfire, Steppenwolf, Thanks Baer!
18. Benny and the Jets, Taupin/John, Elton John, Suggested by Susan Visser.
19. Minnie the Moocher, Cab Calloway, Suggested by Susan Visser, as she got pulled over for speeding while singing along with this.
20. Miami Vice Opening Theme, Jan Hammer, suggested by Baer Charlton
21. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, U2
22. Gunslinger, Elias McDaniel, Bo Diddley
23. Road Runner, Bo Diddley
24. Night Moves, Bob Seger

27. Who Do You Love, Bo Diddley
28. Heart Break Hotel, Durden/Axton, Elvis
29. Générique, Miles Davis, from the Louis Malle film: Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. Could probably add the whole score as one song. Will think on that. Another TOP introduction.

31. Western Stars, Chris Isaak, K.D. Lang
32. Dazed and Confused, Led Zeppelin
33. When the Levee Breaks, Led Zeppelin

35. One More Cup of Coffee, Dylan, White Stripes
36. Crazy on You, Ann Wilson, Nancy Wilson, Heart
37. Barracuda, Wilson, Wilson, DeRosier, Fisher, Heart. Interesting back story on this songs origins, and it's use in the McCain/Palin campaign, in spite of a Cease and Desist order. Google it.
38. Summer in the City, Mark Sebastian, Steve Boone, The Lovin' Spoonful
39. Cathy's Clown, The Everly Brothers
40. Move it on Over, Hank Williams, George Thorogood, and the Destroyers

44. Mississippi Queen, West/Laing/Pappalardi, Mountain, suggested by Richard Christie/Framemaker.
45. Rhiannon, Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac
46 Stop Draggin' My Heart Around, Petty/Campbell, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty

49. All Day and All of the Night, Ray Davies, The Kinks.
50. Somebody to Love, Darby Slick, Jefferson Airplane
51. Piece of My Heart, Ragovoy/Berns, Big Brother and the Holding Company. Janis Joplin, whew!
