DAVID CROSBY - FOR FREE
HEAVEN'S GLORY SHINING... SEASIDE PSALM #3

STOCKI HOLIDAY PLAYLIST 2021 #1 (week ending July 31st)

Stocki headphones

So here are 20 of the songs that I have listened to most this past holiday week. Holidays give me the opportunity to really listen to an album over and over (Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Joy Odalukon, Anthony Toner) and also pick up tracks that I might miss ordinarily (Dawes, Head and The Heart, Daniel Lanois (feat Leonard Cohen)). I also have an 8 hour Summer playlist that loops in car and house. I have only included one song per album as this week you might get all of Jackson Browne! 

LISTEN on ITUNES

 


JACKSON BROWNE - DOWNHILL FROM EVERYWHERE

The title track from the wonderful new record. Seems a good lead off track.

 

GEORGE HARRISON - RUN OF THE MILL (outtakes and Jams)

I have been reading Womack and Kruppa’s book about Harrison and Clapton and waiting for the 50th Anniversary edition of All Things Must Pass. This one is already out and has been a bit of a spiritual devotional this week. Good questions George.

 

THE WALLFLOWERS - I HEAR THE OCEAN (WHEN I WANT TO HEAR TRAINS)

Exit Wounds is my favourite Wallflowers record and this one has intrigue and a Vigilantes Of Love type feel.

 

DAWES - FISHERMAN’S BLUES

One of my favourite bands do one of my favourite ever songs. Discovered this through Mike Scott on Twitter. Very different. Very good!

 

TOLU MAKAY & RTE  CONCERT ORCHESTRA - N17

Mike Scott’s old mates The Sawdoctors’ classic immigration song with a different feel. What an astonishing song this is.

 

DAVID CROSBY - RODRIGUEZ FOR A NIGHT 

Astonishing new record from Crosby. Pure Steely Dan as it should be as it’s a co-write with Donald Fagen.

 

DEL AMITRI - OTHERWISE

Clever lyric as you’d expect from the wonderfully good Fatal Mistakes.

 

JOY OLADUKON - IF YOU GOT A PROBLEM 

This voice. Oh my. My discovery of the year.

 

NEEDTOBREATHE - CARRY ME (Feat. Jon Foreman)

Really enjoying the more organic sound of Into The Mystery. 

 

BEKI HEMINGWAY - LAY YOUR BURDENS DOWN

I have a few songs from Earth and Asphalt on our Summer Playlist. How good are these songs. Crisp and Crucial. 

 

INHALER - IT WON’T ALWAYS BE LIKE THIS

The Dublin boys shift the body and the head too. 

 

DANIEL LANOIS (Feat LEONARD COHEN) - TORN AGAIN

Leonard Cohen guesting with Daniel Lanois. Oh yes!

 

DAVID GRAY - HEART AND SOUL

Gray’s meditative Skellig has been a favourite this year and this is one of my favourites.

 

DECLAN O’ROURKE - STARS OVER KINWARA

I look out many nights and imagine that O’Rourke wrote this about Rathlin, Fair Head and Glenshesk.

 

ANTHONY TONER - RECOGNISED CODEWORD 

Anthony has me back from the coast in our wonderful and wounded city. Six Inches of Water has ten songs about East Belfast and I chose this one.

 

BRONAGH GALLAGHER - TRUTH OR DARE

Last summer I discovered Gallagher’s voice when she covered The Healing Has Begun for Hot Press’s celebration of Van’s 75th birthday. This one is similar.

 

DEREK AND THE DOMINOES - LAYLA

I have listened to this song for 40 years and missed the piano coda until Womack and Kruppa pointed it out. How?

 

TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS - THIRTEEN DAYS

Loving the bundles of Petty records being released. This JJ Cale cover is on the new Angel Dream, a reimagining of the She’s The One soundtrack.

 

THE HEAD AND THE HEART - OUR HOUSE

I love this band so this was a marvellous holiday find of them covering Graham Nash’s love song for Joni

 

URGE FOR GOING - JONI MITCHELL

This is the Blue Sessions demo from the wee EP brought out to celebrate that extraordinary album’s 50 years. This one somehow was never on a Joni album. I have learned to love it this past year. A great way to end a Playlist.
