1. Humble Pie, "Up Our Sleeve"
Sometimes big soul comes in small packages, and the diminutive Steve Marriott had Detroit in his lungs and Memphis in his fingertips. (Braden, Video Archivist)
2. The Who, "5:15"
The Who's compilation/greatest hits album "Hooligans" was the first cassette I purchased when I was in 5th grade. 5:15 was on there and has always been one of my favorites. Didn't understand what they were talking about until years later but I loved it then and it's still one of my favorites. (Eric, President WV)

8. Grizzly Bear, "Little Brother"

This is a much different version than the one on the "Yellow House" album; it's a treat to hear the song stripped down to the bare bones. (Pete / Dopeburger)
9. The Dutchess and the Duke, "St
