The Wheel of Your Tune

The Wheel of Your Tune works like this; I metaphorically turn my spinning top to reveal a random letter and number.  The letter relates to an artist or the name of an album in my collection and the number relates to the track by that artist or on that album.  This week’s spin landed on J8.

My J8 track is Jackie Mittoo – Juice Box from the album The Keyboard King at Studio One.

What’s your J8 track?

  1. I could go for Janis Joplin here and double up with the Js, but I think that I have some other options available to me. Instead, I am choosing Jefferson Airplane and the eighth track on their live album Bless Its Pointed Little Head, recorded at gigs at both the Fillmore East and West in 1968 and released the year after. The tracks is Plastic Fantastic Lover.

  2. Hmmm. Number 8 on J just misses some obvious DsD faves – ALL of:
    Sass Jordan’s Ugly;
    Jumpin’ The Gunn’s Shades Of Blue;
    Rickie Lee Jones’ Danny’s All-Star Joint; and even
    Judas Priest’s Living After Midnight
    are (from memory) track 7 on their respective albums.
    Damien Jurado? Jayhawks? Nope, can’t recall for sure. This one will have to wait until I have time to go through my collection.

    So this one I’ll

  3. JT by James Taylor has only 6 per side. So here’s the best rock band from Pakistan, Junoon, with Saeein (loosely translated as lord). Like most Sufi songs it calls oneness. #8 of Rock and Roll Jihad.

  4. I bought Julian Joseph‘s The Language of Truth after seeing him on some TV programme, and I thought it was brill! Track 8 is one of the only two vocal tracks – so not really showing off the trio’s capabilities – but it’s still a good one: The Magical One, in fact. Singing by Dee Lewis. Only on Spotty though.

  5. oh this was fun – how to cut down to one track number 8 from albums by Jane’s addiction or Jazz Butcher or joy zipper or jesus and mary chain … anyway a 13 track playlist!

      • I’m reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. It’s a weird to realise has often I used to behave like the character in the book and how I sometimes still do.

        It’s either long monologues (often just internal thoughts spewed onto a white surface) or the brutal minimal effort.

        Also, I was busy with the children and expended all my free moments on the Manchester blog, but felt like I had wasted my time. (I don’t now because I found new things but I was a bit intense about it.) Anyway, I wasn’t chatty but I really wanted to mention Jlin and I love that video and it’s minty fresh.

        • I was only joking btw!
          It is a great book. I loved it and so did my son when he read it. It’s​ always a joy to find a book that provokes thought and makes you consider your own behaviour.
          Kids are always a major distraction. Mostly very welcome tho!!

  6. Tough crowd…

    How about Jan Johansson- Berg-Kirstis Polka, from the sublime Jazz på svenska. A bit of an Asfaserae for me, a wonderful 1964 album of jazz interpretations of Swedish folk songs. In this case, Berg Kirstis was the mountain troll- her song entices you up to her lair, forced to dance ever faster…
