Name a band or singer and most people can name off their hits but hearing a “new” song from them from a deep track can be a real delight. This weekend’s theme is about sharing lesser known songs by well known artists, it could be old or a new song that hasn’t gotten airplay. Who knows what gem you might share or discover?

This first one is not actually a deep track but a rare demo by John Lennon:

India – John Lennon

Running Man’s Bible – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Hot Dog – Led Zeppelin

Live Life – The Kinks

Saint Tropez – Pink Floyd

What I Do – Steely Dan

Your turn now to introduce others to your favorite under-appreciated songs from well known performers!

Bach meets Bluegrass Banjo. Bela Fleck — who doesn’t really get going until about 1:40. But when he does…

Did I tell you that I went to a New Years party at his house once? Yeppers. True dat. I was staring in the window, watching some of the most amazing folks in all of Nashville, and thinking how lucky I was to be there, when I tripped UP the stairs. Fortunately, no one noticed and I recovered nicely. Bela is one of the nicest guys in the world – good friends with some of my dearest ones.

Now here’s one for you – Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #3 by the Punch Brothers (Chris Thiele). Gets going around 1:28. Love Chris and Gabe!

You may have the crown, but I gots the goods on this one……

Maybe not exactly a deep track-kinda, sorta- but I just learned that Stax bassist, Donald “Duck” Dunn passed away.
R.I.P. Donald.

Grab This Thing(Part-2) by The Mar-Keys on 1965 Stax 45.

Stax 45 rpm record that is rarely heard on current digital audio formats or broadcasts

I love this one. Rickie Lee Jones’ debut album was good from start to finish.

LOL
There’s a good reason that one didn’t get much air play!

Yeah, but I really like it. It’s like the Lads were just screwing around and having fun. The song cracks me up.
