21/1/2013 ‘(Singin’) The Body Electric’ tracklist

Yep, a leaf was taken from old Walt’s book for the title of this week’s show, focussing on various parts of the human anatomy. At first, going through the TKS collection, it seemed that there might not be enough to fill the hour unless ‘head’ and ‘eyes’ were to be included more than once, but then, the parts started appearing; eventually, there were too many. The following had to be set aside for some future show, the first due to having more than enough hands for the 60 minutes:

Shackleton – Blood On My Hands
Lambchop – Loretta Lung
Sons Of The West – Sally’s Got A Wooden Leg
Ella Fitzgerald – Cheek To Cheek

On to the eleven which did survive the cut:

That track, from an album brimming with the visceral, brought the brief anatomical journey to an end. There could be another such fantastic voyage coming up in the future, after another delve into the collection – but I doubt there’s another ‘liver’ song to take the place of the previously played Japanese gem, Foodbrain’s ‘Liver Juice Vending Machine’…..

Until next time, wishing you all many a  heart-warming, ear-pleasing, sonic delight – S.
