Legendary British A&R Manager David Bates presents an ever-expanding collection of exquisitely curated playlists which Joe recently created his list of his 100 All Time Favorite Songs! 

Listen now: HERE

From Joe:

“David Bates (DB) is famous in the industry for discovering & championing new talent. His signings are legendary, including Def Leppard. He used to make CDs of all the music he loved for each year & send them to you for Christmas, db’s finestkind.  To be on this list either as an artist or as recipient was an honour. We all looked forward to db’s finestkind. Eclectic and rewarding, they are always a deep dive into 12 months of releases. Now he’s made a web site.”

“Anyway he’s asked some people to curate their guest list “all time 100 Songs”. Obviously this is invidious for anyone, let alone a maker of music. Taste is fluid and fickle. But this is heart on my sleeve the songs that made me. That sustain me.  Some cheese in there, some cliches, some well worn classics. You won’t find anything to make me look cool”

“Some you’ll like. Some hate. Some be confused by. Maybe. But have a listen. 

And click to like and follow db’s finestkind on Spotify. PLEASE!  Spotify – db’s finestkind  I said I’d get him more followers! Music is my way of entering the world. Here’s my musical world (so far) compressed to 100 tracks” ❤️ 😎🎤👍

FANNY: The Right to Rock

Streaming with closed captions Persister: Women speaking up and being heard Sometime in the 1960s, in sunny Sacramento, two Filipina-American sisters got together to play music. Little did they know their garage rock band would evolve into the legendary Fanny, the first all-woman band to release an LP with a major record label. Despite recording a handful of albums and amassing a dedicated fan base that included music legend David Bowie, the band all but disappeared from the records of music history. This documentary not only tells the story of the band’s rocking past, but also documents its next chapter: now in their 60s, the bandmates are recording a new album. The film includes interviews with a large cadre of music icons, including Bonnie Raitt, Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and the Go-Go’s Kathy Valentine. Fighting early barriers of race, gender and sexuality in the music industry, the women of Fanny are ready to take their place in the halls of rock ‘n’ roll fame.
