CD highlights include Texas Honey by Ally Venable, Backdoor Man

Like just about every lead vocalist of the past 30 years, consciously or not, he has borrowed from the Lizard King's stage persona and in his Cult days he boasted a rich baritone that, one imagines, would flourish on material like Soul Kitchen and Backdoor Man
His choice of tracks include Backdoor Man
from The Doors, Roxy Music - Remake/Remodel, KC and the Sunshine Band's Get Down Tonight, New Order's Temptation and Creedence Clearwater Revival's Proud Mary, which Moby claims was the song which most inspired him.
In "Moaning the Blues," the image of the back door in the second stanza (arguably a mascon image) evokes the "backdoor man
" of the blues - the second-line lover, not the husband, who may also be married or involved otherwise.
