I was really happy to be able to do this – I helped program for one of my favorite podcasts: Coverville, hosted by Brian Ibbott. Every week, Brian puts together a podcast focused on cover songs which, as you all know, is one of my favorite themes. It just seemed natural for us to team up and after me putting it on the back burner for way too long, we finally made it happen last week.
Here was the tracklisting, including which recording each is riffing on):
1. Asha Puthli: Ain’t That Peculiar (Marvin Gaye)
2. Nancy Holloway: Hurts So Bad (Little Anthony)
3. Derrick Harriott: I’m Your Puppet (James and Bobby Purify)
4. Alton Ellis: Gonna Take a Miracle (Royalettes)
5. The Marvels: Be My Baby (Ronnettes)
6. Betty Chung: Bang Bang (Sonny and Cher)
7. Smith: Baby, It’s You (Shirelles)
8. Stevie Wonder: At Last (Etta James)
9. Billy Stewart: Summertime (Live) (Billy Stewart)
10. The Exciters: Bring It On Home To Me (Sam Cooke)
Thanks again to Brian, it was fun!
(Also, I also completed an hour-long gospel soul/funk set for Aquarium Drunkard and that should air at the end of this week).
