BEST & WORST NOW 2012..SAMBORA-GETS ORGANIC, NILS LOFGREN..EATS IT UP..ETHRIDGE GETS SOUL. LITTLE BIG TOWN..STINK IT UP..CHRIS ROBINSON BAND SHINES-BY JOHN EMMS

Richie Sambora’s  performance today on Howard Stern was fresh and vital.

His brand new track Every Road Leads Home To You done up acoustic (for the show) had real passion. 

A fast listen at  iTunes suggests the songs to be well written, organic and band orientated. More later. Free track download at Sambora’s website

Melissa Ethridge- 4th Street Feeling.  Title track , smoky rhodes type piano,  personal breathy soulful vocal take. Sample lyric..”when everything I had could fit into my chevrolet” Very nice

Little Big Town-Pavement Ends-Lead track on the new album Tornado. Sample Lyric.”take me back to the muddy river, where the bull and cow don’t bother, pick up a girl who won’t holler”..Ouch Ouch…It’s worse than you can imagine 

Chris Robinson Band-Beware, Oh take Care-I urge everyone to check out the emotionally charged “Grateful Dead” ambience of this track. Aching vocal. and gorgeous chord changes that are unorthodox but fit so well. Impressive!

Buddy Whittington-Fender Champ-With a title like this you have to come up with the goods. Clever lyric, snaky riff, and killer lead solo. Blues rock well Done!

Nils Lofgren-Ain’t Too Many of Us Left-Nasty, Nasty. Springsteen’s over qualified guitar slinger rips and tears with vocalist Sam Moore (yes that SAM)

PSY-Gangnam Style-Great fun on the SNL sketch. But yeah the song is really shitty.

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, radio show host http://emms.podbean.com/ and has fun on the side with his blues rocking bro’s at www.theshaftmen.com
