Any Major Night Vol. 2

Any Major Night Vol. 2

Having played the megabytes out of the first Any Major Night mix “” as I did with the Any Major Morning mixes (Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 ) “” it is time to go nocturnal again.

Regular readers will know my aversion to featuring artists more than once in a themed series, but like there was an exception in the Any Major Summer series for The Beach Boys, so must there be one for the habitually night-dwelling Bruce Springsteen. He was on Volume 1, and here he is twice: on his own and as the writer of Patti Smith”s 1978 hit.

Elvis Presley could feature here, but as last time I ran the original of his hit One Night, here I am including the original of Such A Night. Clyde McPhatter and The Drifters” version, released in January 1954, was a hit on the R&B charts. Johnny Ray cleaned it up for the white folks and topped the charts with his version.

Charles Brown”s blues classic Black Night, on the other hand, features here in a cover version by Arthur Alexander, an artist who was at home in soul, blues and country. He was the first singer to record Elvis” hit Burnin” Love, and his song Anna was covered by The Beatles, who close this collection.

As always, this mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R and includes home-moonlit covers. PW the same as always.

    Pity about your one-artist rule, because another Arthur Alexander original, Sharing the Night Together, would’ve been perfect for this series.

    I like this series, Dude. But the next volume must include “Here Comes The Night”, a Brian Wilson/Mike Love composition from the Beach Boy’s 1967 album “Wild Honey.” Wild Honey is one of my favorite Beach Boys albums right up there with “Surf’s Up.”
