Tonight, we kick off the 'Seven Days Of Halloween', an LNMC celebration of my favorite holiday. Every night from now until the 31st, I will post my favorite creepy/dark/wacky/heavy selections that always get me in the mood for the darkest of nights. Here's one from Alice Cooper featuring the always creepy Vincent Price. Boo!

My brother sent me an email yesterday telling me that LNMC needed some XTC. He was right. This track is off 1986's Skylarking, which was produced by Todd Rundgren and ranked as the 48th best album of the eighties according to Rolling Stone magazine.
on Night Music -- Curtis Mayfield made up part of the soundtrack of my late teen years. He was smooth as silk.
On the Lorne Michaels-produced ‘Night Music,’ he played several of his hits, including one of my faves, Pusherman.
As good as this performance by Mayfield is, the Hiram Bullock show begins around 3:50, as the camera puts him dead center in the frame. As he gets a very small few solo notes, he makes the most of it with some foxy moves. RIP Hiram and Curtis. You both are super fly.
David Sanborn - saxophone, Philippe Suisse - keys, Hiram Bullock - guitar, Tom Barney - bass, Omar Hakim - drums. I don’t know who the percussionist is. He’s not in the closing credits.
Saturday! What do you think about self described "gangsta Nancy Sinatra" Lana Del Rey?
|I'm the Boss Card in Your Hand|
Artist: Black Ace Buck Turner
I love this footage of Texas bluesman Black Ace. Maybe you will too.
And Nights at the Roundtable has jazz from The Three Sounds - 1960.
Whatcha listening to this Friday night?
|It's So Hard To Tell Who's Going To Love You The Best|
Artist: Karen Dalton
Here's a nice one from folk-blues chanteuse Karen Dalton. In his 1994 book Chronicles: Volume One, Bob Dylan wrote that "Karen had a voice like Billie Holiday and played guitar like Jimmy Reed... I sang with her a couple of times". Good Enough for me.
|Nine Types of Light|
Artist: TV on the Radio
TV On The Radio's Nine Types of Light was one of my favorite records of last year, and this song is a standout. Did you have a favorite in 2011?
Here's my resolution.
And in the same good time vein our sister site Newstalgia has for its Backstage Weekend The Faces with Rod Stewart Live from 1974.
What's your resolution this year?
Happy New Year! Here's some Ramones from London 34 years ago tonight.
Man this sh*t is smoking! Bernard Purdie for president.
