Ear Worms - Duke Robilard (as told by Mr. Bones)

In Ear Worms, Room Full of Blues founder Duke Robillard presents unique covers of semi-obscure songs that have stuck with him from his youth. Not a fan of covers, give it a try anyway if you want to treat your listeners to some infectious '50s and early ‘60s era rock, pop & jazz that they probably have never heard before. Robillard is backed by a crack band and he uses several vocalists to keep things fresh. Especially delightful is Julie Grant's redo her '60s hit Everyday I Have to Cry Some (track #5).

RIYL: Dave Edmunds, Robert Gordon, Link Wray

*1 Uptempo blistering rockabilly ala The Blasters (D. Robillard, 3:35)
**2 Down-tempo, delicious soulful sound with nice horns & guitar (Goffin & King, 5:38)
*3 Slow & bluesy with nice violin (P. St. John 4:54)
*4 Bouncy instrumental (Traditional, 3:47)
**5 Divine toe tapper with Julie Grant on vocals (A. Alexander, 2:35)
**6 Spooky song about an evil man with powerful bass (B. Dylan, 3:32)
*7 Pure R&B, even better than the Brenda Lee original (R. Self, 2:25)
8 Etherial instrumental (B. Carson & T. Moon, 3:39)
9 Uptempo Chuck Berry song that you’ve never (C. Berry, 2:13)
10 Funky rendition of a Toussaint classic (A. Toussaint 6:33)
11 Mid-tempo, haunting rendition with a rhumba feel (Neville Bros, 4:44)
12 Twangy full tilt boogie on this Link Wray instrumental (Wray & Grant, 2:13)
13 Slow instrumental with jazzy guitar (C. Price & R. Stewart, 4:51)
