Today on the VE--celebrating the summer solstice with songs to roll out the season. I'm PC and this is the VE:
Miles Davis: Summertime
The Band: Time To Kill
XTC: Season Cycle
Happy Sumer Solstice from the VE. "Season Cycle" came from XTC's album Skylarking. That record, and the one
before it, Stage Fright by the Band were produced by Todd Rundgren, some 16 years apart. Rick Danko's song "
Time To Kill' captures the easy free feeling of early summer with many sweet days ahead---- God Willing And The
Creek DOn't Rise...that's the title of Ray La Montagne's 2009 LP featuring the song "For The Summer'
Ray La Montagne: For The Summer
B52s: June Bug
"Cosmic Thing" was one of the great LP comeback stories..for The B52's...from it, "June Bug." Summer Solstice
Celebration. spining some records from the 60s that havent lost innocence, or freshness. As the Kinks sing,
"everybody's looking for the sun...."
The Kinks: Wonderboy
Love: The Good Humor Man
Lovin Spoonful: Rain On the Roof
A couple of American bands--Love and Lovin Spoonful...sandwiched in between British legends The Kinks...and
this summer essential by Small Faces....
Small Faces: Itchycoo Park
The VE Summer Solstice celebration continues with a couple of great word-picture songs, by artists who come from
far corners of the galaxy..but still places where summer comes...
Tony Bennett: Lazy Afternoon
Pink Floyd: Grantchester Meadows
As dissimilar as Pink Floyd and Tony Bennett are, they seem to be on the same page when it comes to summer
daydreaming. From Ummagumma, early Floyd and "Grantchester Meadows" fly-swat and all...and from an early
June night at Carnegie hall in 1962, Tony Bennett in his prime, with the tulip trees a bloomin and the beetle bugs a
zoomin on a Lazy Afternoon.
Summer is a state of min dtoo. If you're havin gtrouble getting into it, take refuge in these songs by Wilco and then
Oasis...
Wilco: Sky Blue Sky
Oasis: Don't Look Back In Anger
Oasis, from the LP with the summer tite What's The Story Morning Glory..and Wilco with the title cut of 2008's Sky
Blue Sky. Finally on the VE...if all we've heard hasn't convinced you that it won't be long till summer comes--this
one will do it.
Thin Lizzy: The Boys Are Back In Town
