Song of the Day: Chris Bell - You and Your Sister. While I’m a huge Big Star fan, and I’ve owned Chris Bell’s I Am the Cosmos¬†compilation for years, I hadn’t listened to it much. But this song, the B-side to the only release of his lifetime, is fantastic. It doesn’t hurt that it has Alex Chilton on backing vocals, of course, but it wasn’t until watching the Big Star documentary Nothing Can Hurt Me that I realized how great this is.

Song of the Day: Donald Byrd - The Dude. After reading Michael Chabon’s Telegraph Avenue, I want to check out as many of the songs and albums referenced as I can (this is helpful). I’m off to a good start, as not only is this jazz-funk album completely awesome, but this song is titled “The Dude.” I’ll abide.

RIYL Miles Davis, The Beastie Boys' instrumentals, Return to Forever
