Playlist 293 - Jan 7 2014

Happy New Year everyone again, for everyone just joining us.

The first show of 2013 was one last look back to my favourite music of last year, most of the playlist drawing on my Best of 2013 posts on the blog lately (see posts on right of page). Within that, I tried to fit in some stuff that hadn't been on the show as much last year. So great cuts from Kevin Murphy, The Would Be's, Howe Gelb feat Will Oldham and Screaming Maldini.

Special mention for Rocket Girl who issued their 100th release last year - wonderful label that.

There were also September Girls and Jacques Caramac (RG) whose albums come out this month. And still room for a few old treasures from Lee Hazlewood & Ann Margret (seriously, check the sleeve on that record, it's a hoot), The Kinks ('Dead end street', a recession song, don't you know) and one of my faves Petula Clark ('I know a place' was the follow up to the peerless 'Downtown' in 1965, also co-written with Tony Hatch and still pretty great).
