Nolan Strong & The Diablos, “Mind Over Matter”
“Nolan is one of the rock and soul world's most unappreciated legends. The guy was a Detroit badass who really had some amazing cuts. This tune kills it.''

Reigning Sound, “Reptile Style”
“Greg Cartwright is one of the best songwriters around. He has had many different bands but his most recent outfit, Reigning Sound, have put out a bunch of incredible records over the last few years. They should be everybody's favorite band!''

Johnny Paycheck, “Don’t Take Her”
“Johnny was a true hellraiser and country music hero. He also had the raddest suits. This particular track will be covered by Low Cut Connie in the future. We love it.''

James Brown, “Please, Please, Please/Night Train”
“There is little to say about this performance from the TAMI show, other than just watch, love it and learn from the master. RIP JB'.”
