American Road Trip: New York Mix Vol. 5

November 25th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

And this will be the final New York mix. There are still plenty of songs that I have not used, but 92 New York-related tracks should suffice. In fact, I’ll add on eight tracks to round the number up to 100.

The timeline on this mix spans 116 years, which surely is quite unusual as far as mixes go. So we have the U.S. Marine Band from 1894 and two songs from outstanding 2010 albums, by the wonderful Caitlin Rose and Ray Lamontagne. I owe the Ben Sidran track to reader Marivic (thank you).

1. Velvet Underground – I’m Waiting For The Man (1967)
2. Death Cab For Cutie – Marching Bands Of Manhattan (2005)
3. Wallflowers – 6th Avenue Heartache (1996)
4. Bob Dylan – Hard Times in New York Town (1962)
5. John Lennon – New York City (1972)
6. Hank Ballard and the Midnighters – Broadway (1962)
7. Ella Fitzgerald – Manhattan (1956)
8. Grover Washington Jr. – East River Drive (1981)
9. Tyrone Thomas and the Whole Darn Family – New Yorkin’ (1976)
10. Ben Sidran – New York State Of Mind (1975)
11. Albert Hammond – New York City Here I Come (1974)
12. Ray Lamontagne and the Pariah Dogs – New York City’s Killing Me (2010)
13. Dar Williams – Southern California Wants To Be Western New York (1996)
14. Caitlin Rose – New York City (2010)
15. Rufus Wainwright – Poses (2001)
16. Al Stewart – Broadway Hotel (1992)
17. Cat Stevens – New York Times (1978)
18. Eagles – In A New York Minute (1994)
19. Simon & Garfunkel – At The Zoo (1968)
20. U.S. Marine Band – Manhattan Beach (1894)

    Thanks for these great comps.
    Here’s a suggestion for some new compilations: how about Southern Songs. Music from the mythical South: the birthplace of all great music: blues, country, soul, jazz, rhythm and blues, rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll…

    Never heard the Lennon track because that album has been so historically reviled that I never got round to listening to it. I always wonder if records like that can really be as bad as everyone says, like Dylan’s ‘Self-Portrait’ (which I didn’t find great, but not so desperately bad either), or Leonard Cohen’s ‘Death Of A Ladies’ Man’ (same). The Lennon boxed set is top of my Xmas wish-list, so if I’m a good boy, I’ll soon get to find out…

    It’s the Yoko parts that are so bad; Lennon’s are just not, on the whole, as good as other Lennon stuff. Still, “John Sinclair” is an occasional spontaneous earworm, and “The Luck Of The Irish” is bertter than McCartney’s record about the troubles. And Lennon did a “Sunday Bloody Sunday” long before that greasy-haired fuck sang his non-rebel song. And the deplorably titled “Woman Is The Nigger Of The World” is, musically, a rayher attractive song.
