The BobChart – Week 2

The Bobcast Bob May 6th 2013 CroppedThe BobChart is made up of tunes I think you would like or songs I feel are worth listening to. Most will be current, some will be lost gems, others may be older songs you may have missed, and some will just be live tracks that bring it. At any rate…It’s the BobChart. There are no fixed positions in the chart, so I am not listing the songs in any particular order. These are PERSONAL favourites and what has my ear and attention this week. Popular music may come and go, but Great music is timeless. Some songs and performances never die or fade away….


This week’s BobChart seems to lean toward country and roots music, with some searing rock and roll; and a little pop/jazz fusion also present. There is also a stunning live Rumer performance of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s “A House is Not a Home” from last year’s Gershwin Awards concert at the White House, and Jordan John absolutely owning “Heard it Through the Grapevine” live in a small club. Enjoy.


Samantha Martin & The Haggard ft. the Levy Sisters – “Six White Horses”

Dirty Loops – “Hit Me”

Jordan John – “Heard it Through the Grapevine”

Rival Sons – “Electric Man”

Rumer – “A House is Not a Home”

Kenny Chesney – “The Road And The Radio”

David Celia – “I’m Not Texan”

David Celia – “Evidently True”  

Rolling Stones – “Doom and Gloom”

Blackberry Smoke – “Ain’t Much Left Of Me”

And finally…

There is a song I absolutely love that for some inexplicable reason did not exist on the internet. I got so frustrated that I produced a version with Canadian country artist Cyril Way and ‘Round Midnight. Michael Martin Murphey had a huge hit with “Geronimo’s Cadillac”, but the second track here will always be my favourite song of his. Michael’s original version is now on YouTube, so you can compare his to ours if you like, either way, this is a great song especially if you understand and appreciate the symbiotic relationship that used to exist between radio and music…and us.

Michael Martin Murphey – “Geronimo’s Cadillac”

Cyril Way and ‘Round Midnight – “Radio Land”
