After representative cuts from my favourite albums last week plus new songs throughout the year’s weekly shuffle, 2017 should be pretty well covered. I have troubles moving on, though, so let’s finish off January with a few more odds and sods.

Best albums of 2017? Here’s my faves:

Happy New Year’s y’all! We’re gonna pull through. Honest. Probably.

It’s your Christmas #TinPodShuffle! (It’s OK to play with it early. Mom said)

Here’s a Christmas #TinPodShuffle for the kiddies

I made this for my young uns when they were 8-12ish. That was several years ago and none are in jail or hooked on street drugs so it’s probably ok to play it for yours. (A couple of them do owe me money, though, so if you know their whereabouts…)

Here’s a #TinPodShuffle for your Christmas office party

This’ll be fun for the first couple of hours. After that you’re on your own and I don’t want to know about it.

Your #TinPodShuffle for Sunday, Dec 10, 2017:

Who’s been up all night to get lucky? Me neither, not at at my age. I’d have to nap and then I’d miss the Sunday shuffle.

Who you get: Marah, Alejandro Escovedo, Bennet, Hayes Carll, NEW Fall, Battered Wives, Blue Rodeo, Duane Eddy, Burning Hell, Daft Punk, NEW Mynabirds, Mynah Birds, Thomas East, Connie Francis, Mike Zito, NEW Turnpike Troubadours

Quirky Canadiana:
1) Toronto’s Cleave Anderson sure changed his tune between drumming on Lovers Balls in 1977 and Outskirts in 1987. (In the hiatus between Battered Wives and Blue Rodeo he was a mailman for Canada Post.)

2) Omaha-based Laura Burhenn named her band The Mynabirds as a nod to Neil Young‘s first proper band, The Mynah Birds – an 1964-67 Toronto-Detroit outfit strangely fronted by future Super Freak Rick James. James was jailed for desertion from the US Army before they could finish recording (for Motown and accompanied by The Four Tops no less) so Young and bassist Bruce Palmer headed west to California, got stuck in traffic and met Stephen Stills. #Legendary, or what?
