Mark Seliger usually spends his time behind the camera; through the years, he's shot such iconic artists as the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Kurt Cobain. However, Seliger also finds himself on the other side of the lens occasionally as the frontman of the country group Rusty Truck. Now you can hear the band's new track, "Rattle Trucks," in which Seliger drapes yearning, melancholy vocals over wandering slide guitars, reaching deep into country and western traditions.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
