The Complete Million Dollar Quartet (1956) – Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash.

The Complete Million Dollar Quartet


The Complete Million Dollar Quartet (1956)
Artist: Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis
Genre: Rock
Label: Sony/BMG
mp3 / 191 mb



The first release of the entire 46 song all-star Jam session that took place on Tuesday, December 4th, 1956, between 4 Rock & Roll MONSTERS: Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash.

Yeah, I know … Throughout the years many parts from this session were released, but this one, released in 2006, is the first time the complete session is available.

This fascinating recording documents the entire session. They play each other’s songs, Blues classics, Country standards and Gospel tunes, laugh, talk shit and mostly blowing your fucking minds right out of your unworthy heads!!

In 1956, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash spent an afternoon jamming at the Sun Studios in Memphis.

For decades, fans knew that on December 4, 1956, the four brightest stars on the Sun Records catalogue – Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash – had spent an afternoon jamming at the Sun Studios in Memphis. The session had been reported in the local press but the tapes were never released.

It wasn’t until 1981, after Sun Records was sold, that 17 tracks from the session were released by Charly Records under the title The Million Dollar Quartet.

This 47-track recording is the first time the entire jam has been released in the order it was recorded.

Certainly there’s a lot of fascinating chat and a lot of fooling around, but there are also some truly magical moments.

Presley singing Don’t Be Cruel with everyone joining in is glorious; there is the shared love of gospel songs and the obvious respect for Presley; then, at the very end, Lewis cuts loose on the piano.

A truly fascinating historic document.

Johnny Cash – Live in Amsterdam 1972

Surprisingly, Dylan wasn’t the only US artist to play Amsterdam!

Here’s a nice boot posted by beehivecandy.blogspot of one of Dylan’s heroes, the late great Johnny Cash playing in Amsterdam back in 1972.

All content below tx to beehivecandy

By the early 1970s, Johnny Cash had established his public image as ‘The Man in Black’.

He regularly performed dressed all in black, wearing a long black knee-length coat.

This outfit stood in contrast to the costumes worn by most of the major country acts in his day, that is rhinestone suit and cowboy boots.

In 1971, Cash wrote the song ‘Man in Black’ to help explain his dress code, “We’re doing mighty fine I do suppose/In our streak of lightning cars and fancy clothes/But just so we’re reminded of the ones who are held back/Up front there ought to be a man in black.”

He and his band had initially worn black shirts because that was the only matching color they had among their various outfits, and he claimed to like wearing black both on and off stage.

From the ‘Man in Black’ era this is Johnny Cash live at The Nieuwe RAI, Amsterdam, Holland, on the 26th February 1972.

Set list was:

1. I Walk the Line intro / A boy Named Sue.
2. Ramblin’ Around / Sunday Morning Coming Down.
3. Man in Black.
4. I Still Miss Someone.
5. Five Feet High and Rising.
6. Pickin’ Time / Detroit City.
7. I Walk the Line.
8. Jackson.
9. If I were a Carpenter.
10. No Need to Worry.
11. Will the Circle be Unbroken / Daddy Sang Bass.
12. Children Go Where I Send Thee.
13. A Thing Called Love.

Sound quality is very good (FM stereo sourced @ 256kbps).

Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues

Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues
Artist: Johnny Cash,
Album: At Folsom Prison,
Genre: Country / Folk

The classic “Folsom Prison Blues” was written by Johnny Cash in the early 1950s and originally recorded with his trio in 1955 for the Sun Records label.

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/77/Folsom_Prison_Blues.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Single by Johnny Cash
B-side “So Doggone Lonesome”
Released 15th December 1955
Format 7″ single
Recorded July 30th 1955
Length 2:50
Label Sun Records
Writer Johnny Cash
Producer Sam Phillips

One of Cash’s signature songs, this combines elements from two popular folk genres, the train song and the prison song, both of which Cash would continue to use for the rest of his career.

In the rather existential lyrics, the jailed protagonist listens to the whistle of a train outside his cell and recounts his crimes (“I shot a man in Reno/just to watch him die”), imagines the free people inside the train (“They’re probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars”) and dreams of what he would do if he were free.

“I know I had it coming/I know I can’t be free,” …. sings the imprisoned protagonist …. “But those people keep a’moving/and that’s what tortures me.”

Strangely, he song does not clarify why the protagonist is serving time in California despite having committed murder in Nevada (unless he is serving time in Folsom for another offence, and is recalling the Reno murder as he reflects on a life of crime, and his unwillingness to follow his mother’s advice not to “play with guns”?).

Cash was inspired to write this song after seeing the movie Inside the Walls of Folsom Prison (1951) while serving in West Germany in the United States Air Force.

Cash recounted how he came up with the “Reno” line: “I sat with my pen in my hand, trying to think up the worst reason a person could have for killing another person, and that’s what came to mind.”

https://i2.wp.com/www.geocities.com/wabasso/images/Billboard_ad.jpg

The song borrows heavily, both lyrically and melodically, from a Gordon Jenkins composition on his 1953 Seven Dreams concept album (the Jenkins song is often referred to as Crescent City Blues). Jenkins later reportedly filed an infringement lawsuit and received a settlement after Cash’s 1968 live recording achieved widespread success.

Cash has included Folsom Prison Blues in his repertoire for decades.

The definitive live performance is considered to be the opening song of a concert recorded at Folsom Prison itself on January 13, 1968. This version was eventually released on the At Folsom Prison album the same year.

That opening song is more up-tempo than the Sun studio recording, as befits a concert-opening number. However, the recording’s most notable feature — the whoops from the audience at the “Reno” line — was actually added in post-production, according to Michael Streissguth. A special on the Walk the Line DVD indicates that the prisoners were careful not to cheer at any of Cash’s comments about the prison itself, fearing reprisal from guards!

I hear that train a-commin’, it’s rollin’ around the bend
And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when
I’m stuck in Folsom prison and time keeps draggin’ on
But that train keeps a-rollin’ on down to San Antone
When I was just a baby, my mama told me, son
Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowin’,
I hang my head and cry

I bet there’s rich folks eatin’ in a fancy dining car
They’re probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
But I know I had it coming, I know I can’t be free
But those people keep a-movin’ and that’s what tortures me

Well if that freed me from this prison
and that railroad train was mine
I bet I’d move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom prison, that’s where I want to stay
And I’d let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away

Shot Man in Reno

https://i2.wp.com/www.timo-kahlen.de/Dust_to_Dust_1996-2005.jpg

When I was just a baby, my mama told me, son
Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowin’,
I hang my head and cry.
I bet there’s rich folks eatin’ in a fancy dining car

They’re probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
But I know I had it coming, I know I can’t be free

“Folsom Prison Blues” cover
extract from: Folsom Prison Blues by J. Cash (1955)

With the pithy and catchy title “I Shot a Man in Reno: A History of Death by Murder, Suicide, Fire, Flood, Drugs, Disease, and General Misadventure, as Related in Popular Song“, – named of course for Johnny Cash’s great Folsom Prison Blues – this book by Graeme Thomson looks pretty damn interesting!

Death and murder – almost as much as sex and lust! – have been staples of great music back from earliest times up through the traditional Irish / Scots ballads (which set the cornerstone for much of modern music) on to the twentieth century via various genres (esp. blues, traditional/folk and country – via the likes of Leadbelly, Cash, John Lee Hooker, Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie, to name just a few), often with the same characters being sung about in different songs (Stagger Lee, etc), right on through to more recent times and significant artists such as Nick Cave (especially in the “Murder Ballads” LP- which we’ve already posted somewhere) and, moreso, Bob Dylan (most significantly in “World Gone Wrong” – which we’ve already posted somewhere).

The recent excellent album from Bob Frank and John Murry (World Without End (2006) – which we’ve already posted somewhere) strongly carried forth the tradition into the twenty-first century.

And it won’t end there!

I want to get my mitts on this book real soon!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ask the gangsta rap devotee. Ask the grizzled blues fanatic and the bearded folk fan. Ask the goth and the indie kid.

Ask and they will all tell you the same thing: death and popular music have forever danced hand-in-hand in funereal waltz time. The pop charts and the majority of radio stations’ playlists may conspire to convince anyone listening that the world spins on its axis to the tune of “I love you, you love me” and traditional matters of the heart. The rest of us know that we live in a world where red roses will one day become lilies and that death is the motor that drives the greatest and most exhilarating music of all.

“Death music” is not merely a byword for bookish solemnity, or the glorification of murder, drugs and guns. Over the course of the last hundred years it has also been about teenage girls weeping over their high school boyfriend’s fatal car wreck; natural disasters sweeping whole communities away; the ever-evolving threat of disease; changing attitudes to old age; exhortations to suicide; the perfect playlist for a funeral; and the thorny question of what happens after the fat lady ceases to sing. Which means that for every “Black Angel’s Death Song” there is a “Candle in the Wind,” and for every “Cop Killer” there is “The Living Years.” Death, like music, is a unifying force. There is something for every taste and inclination, from murderous vengeance to camp sentimentality and everything in between.

Drawing upon original and unique interviews with artists such as Mick Jagger, Richard Thompson, Ice-T, Will Oldham and Neil Finn among many others, I Shot a Man in Reno explores how popular music deals with death, and how it documents the changing reality of what death means as one grows older. It’s as transfixing as a train wreck, and you won’t be able to put it down.

As an epilogue, I Shot a Man in Reno presents the reader with the 50 greatest death songs of all time, complete with a brief rationale for each, acting as a primer for the morbidly curious listener.

Review:

“Death in popular song comes in all shapes and sizes, but Thomson (Willie Nelson: The Outlaw) skids wildly from one genre and artist to another without pausing to draw larger conclusions. Divided into chapters covering everything from the common teenage penchant for suicide songs to the evolution of murder ballads and gangsta rap, Thomson displays considerable knowledge of music past and present, but his conclusions are often less than profound: death as a ‘hallmark of teen rebellion’ (think James Dean); the Doors’ ‘The End’ signifying the late 1960s, Vietnam and ‘a world defined by death.’ In his most compelling section, entitled ‘Sweetness Follows: Into the Great Beyond’ (from the R.E.M. songs of the same names), Thomson explores musicians’ approach not to death itself, or even the journey toward it, but to what happens next. Though Thomson admits in the introduction that more death songs will be omitted than included, frustrated readers may wish he had taken his own advice and culled his examples to support a focused thesis.” Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

“This isnt a history; its a commentary. Damned good one, too, by a journalist who knows his stuff and struts it….Enthralling from the first page, he guarantees rereaders…” Booklist

Review:

“Rock songs…are as much about death as they are about love, argues Greame Thomson in his brilliant I Shot a Man In Reno.” ForeWord magazine

Synopsis:

Drawing upon original and unique interviews with such artists as Mick Jagger, Richard Thompson, Ice-T, Neil Finn, and many others, I Shot a Man in Reno explores how popular music deals with death, and how it documents the changing reality of what death means as one grows older.

Will Oldham – Discography & Rarities

https://i0.wp.com/leafandlime.hobix.com/pics/oldham.jpg

Will Oldham – Discography & Rarities
Magic Music from the man of a hundred names! – aka Palace Brothers, Palace Songs, Palace Music, Palace, Palace Soundtrack, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy etc etc!
God bless the chaos, I’m ready to go
Made my provisions written my notes
Too bad that folks remain on the earth
To see me deny no to renew my birth
And even my swallow my sweet one of all
Will be angry and bitter and briefly withdraw
For I’ve done much protecting and hiding of hardness
The awful emotion I never could bear
I was always afraid to reveal what I’m knowing
Like I have a particular kind of thing growing
Indifference, a bosom ally to despair,
Soaks itself in to the skin and the hair


We love the peerless music Will Oldham, the man with the greatest number of aliases this side of a conman appearing on the Interpol Most Wanted list!

We have already posted lots of Willy stuff here:

Surely the greatest songwriter of his generation, his work over the past almost 20 years has been consistently astounding, experimental, challenging and varied. And voluminous!

His live shows are excellent too and I have been lucky enough to see him play live a few times.

Will Oldham first performed and recorded under various permutations of the Palace name, including Palace Brothers, Palace Songs, Palace Music, and simply Palace. Regarding the name changes during this period (1993-1997), Oldham said:

“ Well, I guess the idea is that when you have a name of a group or an artist, then you expect that the next record, if it has the same name, should be the same group of people playing on it. And I just thought we were making a different kind of record each time, with different people, and different themes, and different sounds. So I thought it was important to call it something different so that people would be aware of the differences.

I mean, I don’t want people buying my records and being disappointed that it doesn’t sound like the last one… Within my own tiny little world, the first full-length Palace record is with one kind of musician and it was recorded in a certain type of way, while the second one was completely different-sounding and there was a fifth of the amount of people involved.

The songs to me also seemed really different. And then the third record was another completely different recording environment and I had different kinds of musicians involved. So those things seemed different enough for me to alter the name. I’ll admit that that’s just me in the process of moving forward without any benefit of perspective, distance, or time whatsoever. ”

https://i0.wp.com/www.killerofgiants.com/images/jpg/Whiteley4.jpg

Beginning in 1998, Oldham has primarily used the moniker Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, which draws inspiration from several sources:

“ Yeah, the name has so many different references that it could almost have a life of its own. Bonnie Prince Charlie has such a beautiful ring to it, and I was very conscious of appropriating that mellifluous sound.

And I was also thinking about the name Nat King Cole. But it wasn’t until later, and this may have been subconscious, that I remembered that Billy the Kid was William Bonney or Billy Bonney.”

Oldham has explained that “the primary purpose of the pseudonym is to allow both the audience and the performer to have a relationship with the performed that is valid and unbreakable.

https://i1.wp.com/media.drawerb.com/wp/2007/07/will-oldham-bonnie.jpg
“He doesn’t rehearse. … He chooses the people he’s going to play with shortly before the session, so everyone is playing by the seat of their pants, and the music is at constant risk, subject to the weaknesses of whoever’s in the room. But he gets absolutely spontaneous moments of greatness you couldn’t rehearse.”

-Steve Albini

Will is actually a true polymath, as well as his enormous music output, dabbling in photography, design and of course acting.

In fact, the first time I ever saw Will was in John Sayles’s majestic Matewan, back in 1987, wherein Will, at the age of 17, portrayed a teen preacher in this film about an Appalachian mining community. His performance there was mesmerising.

Far more recently, he showed he still has this acting chops, with a fine performance in the lovely low-budget film Old Joy from 2006. We have posted this tremendous film HERE

Willy links

Oldham has produced so much music, under his own various monikers and his countless collaborations, it is almost impossible to get an accurate listing of them all!

The Royal Stable sets out an extensive Will Oldham discography.

Here are a shitload of Will albums and singles – all the proper albums and most of the EPs plus a number of singles.

A mountain of majestic music!

All thanks to my friends, Oldham fans and music lovers at skafunkrastapunk!

Will Oldham – “Joya” (1997)

Some copies of the album included a bonus disc entitled Little Joya (see BELOW), which was later reissued as a separate single in 1998.

Will Oldham – Western Music (1997)

Another rare and wonderful Oldham EP.

Western Music was released on Spanish record label Acuarela Ovni. The EP also features Mick Turner and Jim White of wonderful Australian band The Dirty Three.

Keeping up with Will Oldham’s complete output can be a very hard task. He has always mixed releases between albums with the shorter formats of the 7″ and EP, producing a healthy amount of material in between his full-length releases. However, seeking out the 7″ and EP formats can be rewarding, as the material often matches, and occasionally surpasses the quality of his albums. The 4 Track Western Music EP is a very hard to find title released in very limited edition by the combined forces of two labels out of Spain (Acurela and Ovni) in 1988. Coming from a variety of sessions.

Two tracks are solo Oldham, while Mick Turner and Jim White of the Dirty Three and former Gastr del Sol member David Grubbs play anonymous roles elsewhere. On nearly every song, Oldham approaches the level of his best work. “Always Bathing in the Evening” is perfect for dark bedroom listening. “Wade in/Wade in,” he sings, as voices in the distance chime in with “Blowing/Jump in/Waiting/Jump in.” While there is little lyrical matter to speak of, it sounds fantastic. On “Three Photographs” Oldham is an intriguing, fragmentary story told through pictures. Over the most rudimentary, lo-fi guitar strum.

With the other track “Western Song For J.L.L”, this is another fine outing, bringing to mind some of the material he would later release as Bonnie Prince Billy. Western Music came during a particularly prolific time for Oldham (during the Joya period) and was very hard to find even when in print. Only the best indie stores in the world were able to get them in and they were all pretty quickly gobbled up.

Bonnie Blue Billy – Little Boy Blue (Western Vinyl, 2000)

This is an absolutely outstanding release and urgently needs a re-release. All of the three songs are top-notch Oldham songwriting. “Little Boy Blue” and “Little Boy Blue 2” have been given the treatment in 2006 on Little Lost Blues, a VERY limited bonus-disc to “The Letting Go”. Still lost is the humorous “Blue Boy” with hilarious background vocals and a hawaii-style guitar. Try to get your hands on this!

Rian Murphy and Will Oldham – “All Most Heaven” EP (2001)

Although it runs only 15 minutes long, this release is one that would win over most people on name-dropping alone. While the main singers are Rian Murphy and Oldham, the musical arrangements are by Jim O’Rourke and Archer Prewitt had a big hand in the background vocals. Not only that, but David Grubbs, Bill Callahan, Edith Frost, and Laetitia Sadier make appearences among others. It’s a damn indie rock hotsheet lineup and although the music isn’t anything that hasn’t been done before, it’s super enjoyable and just a plain excellent little release.

The four songs on the album follow sort of a natural progression and start out with “Fall Again.” Made up of a nice arrangement of organs, guitars, bass, piano, strings, and a touch of horns, it’s a jaunty little track that fits perfectly with the very odd lyrics (that actually are in all the tracks). At first, I wondered if I was just hearing them sing wrong, but upon looking at the lyrics sheet, I realized that they yes indeed did just say, “they boge in do bo/when you call the name/of they sing or they/I bmal bahl.” It’s like a bit of Anthony Burgess’ Clockwork Orange-speak thrown in to real English and it works very well with the lush, almost baroquey sounding arrangements by O’Rourke. The third track “Song Of Most” goes with a more string-driven track again and with a backing chorus that includes Sadier (of Stereolab), the lyrics of “We held upon a biggun daddy/hates to, the song fall on/the gable/ah ee stood ape-hole” seem still manage to sound somewhat regal.

The short EP ends with the slower “Song Of All” and the light horns, guitar and piano arrangement close things out nicely with vocals by Oldham (as well as a chorus of several backups). Overall, it’s a very short release and probably more for those who’ve already heard work by those involved (but chances are you have given everyone that had a hand in the release). Musically, it’s very nearly perfect with very full sounds and varied instrumentation, and even with the sometimes undecipherable lyrics, it makes for a nice little musical morsel.

Will Oldham – Seafarers Music
(2004)

This is one of my favourite minor Oldham recordings – an instrumental short album with a nautical theme.

It is the soundtrack to the film Seafarers (2004) by British director Jason Massot, a documentary about four seamen in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Each of the album’s tracks is named after one of the four sailors.

The EP also features playing from Paul Oldham and David Bird.

From Pitchfork (where it got an 8.0):

A few weeks back, at a secret Bonnie “Prince” Billy show, I made a rookie mistake, presuming that I knew what Will Oldham was up to, even a decade after having first been mystified by his music. Brashly assuming the seasick music I’d heard that night (courtesy of “Prince” and “Cockfighter,” aka Matt Sweeney) to be a taster for his soundtrack work for British director Jason Massot’s documentary about sailors in the bustling Rotterdam seaport. The newswire quoted me blabbering expertly on “songs about spanking, donkeys (but not spanking donkeys), and allusions to creatures such as the ‘Super Wolf’ and ‘Panther Girl’.” I’d asserted that there couldn’t possibly be more songs about sailors and the sea.

Was I ever wrong. Not only were the dozen songs I’d heard completely new, but none of them referenced the soundtrack for Seafarers at all, save the fashion sense of the sardine-packed Williamsburg crowd itself. Sailor is the new Camo: Will-fully-induced scurvy, scruffy pirate beards, ironic bicep-tual hula girl tats, moth-riddled wooly peacoats, salty squints, and crooked seamen caps are replacing Radar hats, olive-green fatigues, boutique-bought dogtags, and $100 paratrooper pants at a frightening pace. Again, Oldham surfs ahead of the Zeitgeist, much as he did by anticipating skillet-licking necrofolkia with There Is No-One What Will Take Care of You and Days in the Wake.

Like Oldham’s previous seafaring soundtrack work, these four songs, dedicated to rough-hewn human flotsam from Sweden, Polynesia, Croatia and Nigeria, are instrumental– Oldham, brother Paul and David Bird carving out four different variations on a melancholic theme. Not quite sea shanties, the gently finger-flicked notes sway to and fro, creaking like frayed ropes and salt-cracked lips on a stilled day, destinationless, and surrounded by the infinite waters. Each character bobs and pitches on the slight fluctuations of shimmering saline, their movements imperceptible yet in motion. The order of notes is uncertain and always changing, leaving me to wonder if the characters are but Abyss-like apparitions raised from the sea itself.

That said, the little nuances of the Oldhams’ and Bird’s playing are what keep the notes afloat on the despondent, drunken music bed, and their soft focus makes for more return listens than Oldham’s past scores for The Broken Giant or Slitch. The musicians enter in about a minute apart on “Sapele”, setting up slight ripples between each others’ notes while open strings and tube-warmed amps buzz towards the horizon, accompanying protagonist “Lars”. The smallest of sounds, such as the wheezing of air organ and ungrounded fuzz bubble up on “Emmanuel” and shine as beacons, their minimal gestures conveying the sad depths that lie beneath the sailors’ brutish exteriors. Could Will Oldham be the next Jean Genet, using the fragile-feminine to trace the savage-masculine, or does this just reinforce that incidental music is the next post-rock?

Bonnie Prince Billy – “Sings Greatest Palace Music” (2004)

A rather strange one, this! Although, with Oldham, everything is kinda strange!

This could’ve been called “Billy’s Nashville Skyline“!

The LP features ‘cover-versions’ of songs from his Palace music era (1993-1997), recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with a large group of renowned country session musicians!

The lo-fi nature of the songs’ original recordings was abandoned in favour of a more conventionally polished country sound.

Guest musicians include the likes of Eddie Bayers, Stuart Duncan, Mark Fain, Mike Johnson, Hargus Robbins, Andrew Bird and Bruce Watkins.

1. “New Partner”
2. “Ohio River Boat Song”
3. “Gulf Shores”
4. “You Will Miss Me When I Burn”
5. “The Brute Choir”
6. “I Send My Love to You”
7. “More Brother Rides”
8. “Agnes, Queen of Sorrow”
9. “Viva Ultra”
10. “Pushkin”
11. “Horses”
12. “Riding”
13. “West Palm Beach”
14. “No More Workhorse Blues”
15. “I Am a Cinematographer”

Dawn McCarthy of Faun Fables also sings on the album while Jim White, the longtime drummer for the the wonderful Oz group Dirty Three, whacks the sticks!

The album’s name comes from the last lines of the great Emily Dickinson poem that starts “After a Great Pain, A Formal Feeling Comes”:

This is the hour of lead
Remembered if outlived,
As freezing persons recollect the snow –
First chill, then stupor, then the letting go.

12. “I Called You Back” – 7:53
13. “Ebb Tide” – 5:14 (hidden track). Bonus track on some versions, “Untitled” on some versions.

Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy – Wai Notes (2007)

This is a new limited edition (not to mention beautifully packaged) Will Oldham album in which he combines with Faun Fables’ Dawn McCarthy for an alternate take on material penned for the last Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy album. The incredibly rough recordings that make up Wai Notes were once demos for The Letting Go album, an LP that was about as hi-fi and full-blooded as you could ever hope to hear. Perhaps because of those maxed-out production values, the album tended to split opinion between long-term Oldham followers, but hearing the songs in their nascent form is sure to be unanimously well received among Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy die-hards.

The format is pared down to just Oldham and McCarthy singing whilst accompanied by a little acoustic guitar and a whole lot of tape hiss. It’s rather odd to hear a song like ‘Cursed Sleep’ bereft of its lavish string arrangements, but here it is complete with errors and fumbled lyrics, and it sounds just great.

Of course to get the full benefit of an album like this it really helps if you know the songs as they appeared on the album in the first place, but even if this is your first time dipping into the material there remains an obvious beauty to these coarse documents. It’s interesting that McCarthy gets first billing on the CD, her voice seems to be more defined and spatially diffuse than Oldham’s own performance – presumably it’s been overdubbed at some later time with some slightly higher quality equipment.

In any case the uncompromising physicality and intimacy of the material here makes for a wonderful listening experience.

Very highly recommended.

Bonnie Prince Billy –Lie Down In The Light (2008)

3. “So Everyone”
4. “For Every Field There’s a Mole”

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy (with Harem Scarem and Alex Nielsen) – Is It The Sea? (October 2008)

Is this Will Oldham’s riposte to Mike Scott’s mid-80’s LP “This is the Sea”? Nah!!

No so-called “Big Music” here! Just real music!

Willy’s on a creative roll lately! It’s wonderful! Yes, its looking like 2008 might be the year that Oldham can finally wrest the title of “number one artist that will always be referred to as prolific” from Ryan Adams!

Following the out of the blue, and excellent Lie Down in the Light, this live album will be released October 20, on Domino Records.

The decidedly nautically themed LP culls songs from Spring 2006 shows in Scotland, Ireland and Newcastle and features a tracklisting that pulls songs from across his long and varied discography.

“New Partner” gets its third outing since its debut in Viva Last Blues ! Billy just loves that ditty!

Tracklisting

01 Minor Place
02 Love Comes to Me
03 Bed Is for Sleeping
04 Arise Therefore
05 Wolf Among Wolves
06 Ain’t You Wealthy, Ain’t You Wise?
07 Cursed Sleep
08 Molly Bawn
09 Birch Ballad
10 New Partner
11 Is It the Sea?
12 My Home Is the Sea
13 Master and Everyone

Top 10: Comeback Albums

A piece below from askmen.com on the topic Top 10: Comeback Albums.

Now most of their top ten are frankly ludicrous (including joke bands such as Aerosmith, Van Halen, etc), but the top three are reasonable, and the Number One is a stone cold classic.

That stone cold classic would be the masterful Time Out of Mind by Mr Bob Dylan from 1997.

Erm, this was far from the first comeback Dylan had. What about New Morning by Bob from 1970? That was surely a comeback from the dead!

Also, why is the cover shot of Dylan from the mid sixties, when the album in question was released some three decades later?? Bob may be God, but he ain’t Dorian Gray!!

The top three on this list are described below.

CP Images
Bob Dylan’s comeback album takes the No. 1 spot


http://www.askmen.com/toys/top_10_250/295c_top_10_list.html

Number 3

BMG

From Elvis in Memphis

Elvis Presley, 1969

OK, Elvis may never have actually left the building, but by the late ’60s his office was no longer on the throne room for “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.” After years of schlock films and equally cheesy soundtracks, the King’s hip shaking seemed painfully tame compared to the masses of the hippie and psychedelic set. Presley’s movies had the dubious glory of being considered a genre unto themselves, but the iconic singer hadn’t yet found a way to top his 1950’s success.

Back in action: The chance to escape from the big screen trap he’d set for himself came courtesy of the small screen. Namely a successful 1968 television special during which Elvis started to shed his big-screen persona with an off-the-cuff jam with former band mates D.J. Fontana and Scotty Moore. The vibe continued on From Elvis in Memphis, which featured a blend of country, soul and R&B that yielded hits like “In the Ghetto.” Though it was the King’s 34th record, it was widely considered his personal best and one of the greatest albums of all time. Even B-sides like “Kentucky Rain” and Presley’s final hit, “Suspicious Minds” became massive and proved that “The King” still possessed one of the most singular voices in rock and roll.

Number 2

Sony

American Recordings

Johnny Cash, 1994

Another artist with a voice like no other and a career to match — for over 50 years the “Man in Black” sold roughly 90 million albums. Lean times, personal tragedy and hard living fueled his writing, performances and private excesses. At the height of his career Johnny Cash hosted a popular television show that featured guest like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Louis Armstrong, and Kris Kristofferson. In 1972, Cash played the Nixon White House, opting to ignore the president’s personal song requests. By the mid-’70s though, his career was flagging, and by the mid-’80s Cash had succumbed to his addiction to painkillers, again. There were records and successful books, but Cash was dropped from Columbia records. He moved to another label, but didn’t live up to earlier glories until 1994.

Back in action: Few people would think that covering Danzig and Leonard Cohen on the same record to be a brilliant move, but it worked for Johnny Cash. After the success of Cash’s version of U2’s “The Wanderer,” superstar producer Rick Rubin signed him to the American Recordings label and the two recorded a set of stripped-down covers and originals that showed fans, old and new, that Cash was far from done. It bought Cash another decade of success, a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album and a prominence as a cultural icon that rivaled his earlier success.

Number 1

Sony

Time Out of Mind

Bob Dylan, 1997

Dylan never went away. He’s one of the greatest songwriters and has the hardware on his mantle to prove it: Grammys, Golden Globes and Academy Awards among them. He’s performed with virtually every major artist of his time, has been nominated multiple times for the Nobel Prize for Literature and for 20 years Bob Dylan juggled musical styles and socio/political commentary with equal grace. Along the way he survived controversies for allegedly turning his back on the folk scene by going electric and betraying the counter-culture by embracing Christianity. Things started to get patchy in the 1980s — though he was hardly out of fashion, he wrote less until he found new life as part of the Traveling Wilbury’s and ended the decade with some of his best work in years on Oh Mercy, produced by Daniel Lanois. The flash of inspiration didn’t help his next release, however, and Under the Red Sky tanked badly.

Back in action: For the seven years following Under the Red Sky, Dylan released no original material, only two albums of traditional folk songs. Time Out of Mind was his first platinum record since 1979. Not only was it considered one of his best by fans and critics, it brought the aging legend a new, younger audience, won him three Grammys and now shares a place with nine of his other records on Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Records of all time.

Unheard recordings of Johnny Cash playing to prisoners have been released 35 years after they were performed.

The seven tracks, including Sunday Morning Coming Down, A Boy Named Sue, prison lament San Quentin and an instrumental version of the celebrated I Walk The Line, have been released as part of a revised edition of Johnny Cash Live at Osteraker Prison.

The late, legendary “Man in Black” visited the Swedish jail in 1972 to play for inmates, and while an album of the event was released the following year, seven of the tracks were left off.

Versions of the Carl Perkins hits High Heel Sneakers and Blue Suede Shoes, featuring the famous songwriter as a guest, and a Folsom Prison Blues instrumental were among them.

The oft-arrested singer, who fought drug and alcohol addictions, never served time but cultivated an outlaw image and had an empathy for prisoners. He recorded an array of songs about living behind bars, including Folsom Prison Blues, San Quentin and Cocaine Blues, and famously went on to play at Folsom Prison in 1968 and San Quentin in 1969.

Recordings of the two events became infamous, after prisoners could be heard cheering when Cash’s deep, distinctive voice sang the line from Folsom Prison Blues, “But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die”.

The Grammy-award winner’s show at Osteraker Prison was his first jail performance outside his native America, but he was greeted just as warmly by inmates after he learnt enough Swedish to tell them: “Thank you my friends, I hope you like our music.”

Cash died in 2003, aged 71.

Pa Osteraker: Live at Osteraker Prison, Sweden 3 Oct 1973/35th Anniversary Edition is out now.

Bob Dylan – Versions of the majestic Girl From The North Country

Bob Dylan – Versions of the majestic Girl From The North Country
Rock: Classic / MP3 – 192 kps / 102 MB Rapidshare
Girl From The North Country represents one of Dylan’s best moments, which, given the extent and unequalled quality of his catalogue, is saying something.

It’s a beautiful haunting cry of lonely love and the sort of longing that eats your soul from the inside out.

I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all.
Many times I’ve often prayed
in the darkness of my night
Girl From The North Country first appeared on Dylan’s magnificent second album “The Freewheelin Bob Dylan” released in 1963.

BTW the really excellent outtakes from the extended 1962 sessions for The Freewheelin Bob Dylan are rather wonderfully described here TFBD Outtakes !!;

———————————————————————-


“REMEMBER ME TO ONE WHO LIVES THERE,
SHE ONCE WAS A TRUE LOVE OF MINE”

A young Bob Dylan, during his first visit to London in early 60s, had been very impressed by English Folkie Martin Carthy’s version of songs such as “Lord Franklin” and “Scarborough Fair”.

And from “Scarborough Fair”, Dylan here borrowed a few couplets and a musical notes! But of it, comes something new and beautiful. Art fucks art and makes new art!

Paul Simon, of course, was less scrupulous and ripped off Carthy’s entire version of “Scarborough Fair”!

GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY

Well, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,

Remember me to one who lives there.

She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,

Please see if she’s wearing a coat so warm,

To keep her from the howlin’ winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,

That’s the way I remember her best.

I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all.
Many times I’ve often prayed
I
n the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,

Remember me to one who lives there.

She once was a true love of mine.

n the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,

Remember me to one who lives there.

She once was a true love of mine.

This here is a collection of some 17 versions of one of Dylan’s wonderful song. I know there are a number of other GFTNC covers and some good Bob performances of GFTNC on various live boots …. but due to file size limits, they ain’t here ! Thanks to blandyob for assembling most of these … but apologies for muzak-makers Counting Crows and MOR monster Rod Stewart being involved !!

Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan – Sessions ; Nashville 1969

Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan – Sessions ; Nashville 1969

Two of the giants of modern music here combine in some rare moments of historical interest for music fans.

Now, there are many different versions of these sessions and it can get quite complex working out which boot is what and from when! Here goes anyway!

These tracks were variously recorded at sessions held at CBS studios, Nashville, TN February 17-18, 1969 from Dylan’s Nashville Skyline Sessions, together with three tracks recorded for Johnny’s TV Show at the Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, TN May 1, 1969.

This main part of this disc – the 1969 CBS Studios session in Nashville – did not see an official release, nor was ever meant to do. It’s essentially Johnny and Bob jamming on a variety of classics, some self-penned, with contributions from guests such as Carl Perkins. It has a very loose quality to it, but it is still a fascinating document of two music greats. Only one of these tracks did in fact ultimately make it onto Nashville Skyline – being of course the supreme “Girl from the North Country”.

https://i0.wp.com/www.maggiesfarm.it/dylancash.jpgA young Bob seems to be in great deference to Johnny, one of his heroes. Also Dylan’s voice sounds unusually ‘sweet’ here, in marked contrast to the rasp he is most associated with. Apparently, Bob had quit smoking around that time and that’s why they say his voice sounded so different.

For those more obsessive Dylan fans, an extensive official and bootleg discography for 1969 and other years is available here.

Here’s a clip from the Johnny Cash TV Show, where Bob and Johnny perform Dylan’s great One Too Many Mornings.

https://i2.wp.com/www.barbstexas.com/images/JohnnyCash_BobDylan.jpg During the Nashville Skyline sessions in February 1969, Dylan teamed up with Johnny Cash to record over a dozen songs. Only one of these made it onto Nashville Skyline (“Girl from the North Country”).

Most of the rest are here, in perfect fidelity. If you were to judge this as a proper studio album, the notices wouldn’t be too positive, due to the ragged and tentative performances. Judged as a loose, informal meeting of two giants, it’s very pleasurable listening, though more for Cash’s contributions than Dylan’s.

With full band backing (including Carl Perkins on electric guitar), the pair run through easygoing, rockabilly-tinged versions of Dylan songs, Cash songs, old Sun rockabilly chestnuts (“That’s All Right Mama” and “Matchbox”), and a bit of country gospel. Cash, in fact, dominates the proceedings: he sings lead more often, and the mere two Dylan tunes (“Girl from the North Country” and “One Too Many Mornings”) are outweighed by a larger heaping of Cash classics (“Big River,” “I Walk the Line,” “I Still Miss Someone,” “Ring of Fire,” “Guess Things Happen That Way”).

The CD might even appeal more to Cash fans than Dylan ones, especially as Dylan’s singing is not up to scratch: his timing is off, he often sings on one note, and he even needs to be occasionally cued by Johnny for the right words.

The disc also includes three interesting Dylan performances from a TV broadcast on The Johnny Cash Show in May 1969, as well as five less essential quadrophonic mixes of Nashville Skyline tracks.

Here’s something I found which apparently describes the true source of many of these tracks and how they saw the light of day!

https://i1.wp.com/g-ec2.images-amazon.com/images/I/51Xm5oce4YL._SS500_.jpg

A little history about the source: These were bootlegged in the late 70s or early 80s in poor quality. In 1985 or 86, my friend, Chris D., worked in a video store in Nashville (I lived near there). I had helped him get some space shot videos from NBC, so to return the favor, he called one day and asked if I wanted a cassette of the Cash session. He got it from a guy who found it in his attic, in a box marked “BDJC”. That guy’s father worked for CBS Nashville in 1969 and made a 1 inch mono reel-to-reel copy of the original session tape. He made Chris a cassette from the 1 inch tape. Chris copied the cassette, and gave me the original. In the fall of 1986, I went to a Dylan collectors meet in Chicago, and we daisy-chained 15 cassette decks together. I was second in the chain, and everyone past me copied my tape. By then, I had added the second “One Too Many Mornings” and the three songs from a betamax tape of the JC TV show, so this CD is one generation down from my original cassette. The original bootleg CD came out about two months later. “Mornings” has a tone shift in the middle, from the video when they change from the studio footage to the control room footage, but I minimized this a bit with some EQ, which you can hear when it switches. I tried to balance the tones more than on the source video, but there is more echo on the control room footage. The CDs come from the tape that was copied in Chicago. Someday I will digitize the original cassette and make a better copy, but there probably won’t be much improvement over this one. I do now have a much better source for the JC TV show video; the JC show from ABC on this tape has several glitches. “One Too Many Mornings” from the PBS Cash documentary is now available on a legitimate DVD.

Johnny Cash Discography

Johnny Cash in 1969All thanks to Gill Bates, who has gone to the great trouble of compiling a veritable cornucopia of wonderful Cash albums. Not all of Cash’s countless works down the years, which would be nigh impossible to do, but plenty close enough!

If you don’t know about Cash, I guess the lobotomy operation went well! Congratulations!

Here’s a very high level overview of Johnny, if that’s not too disrespectful considering Johnny’s almost peerless contribution to the world of music and culture.

Johnny Cash, born J. R. Cash, (26 February 1932 – 12 September 2003) was a Grammy Award-winning American country singer-songwriter, considered to be one of the most influential American musicians of the 20th century.

https://i2.wp.com/www.penmachine.com/images/cashfinger-big.jpgCash was known for his deep, distinctive voice, the boom-chick-a-boom or “freight train” sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, his demeanour, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname “The Man in Black”.

He traditionally started his concerts with the introduction “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.”

Much of Cash’s music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption. His signature songs include “I Walk the Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ring of Fire”, “That Old Wheel” (a duet with Hank Williams Jr.), “Cocaine Blues”, and “Man in Black”. He also recorded several humorous songs, such as “One Piece at a Time”, “The One on the Right Is on the Left”, “Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog” and “A Boy Named Sue”; rock-and-roll numbers such as “Get Rhythm”; and various railroad songs, such as “Rock Island Line” and “Orange Blossom Special”.

Johnny sold over 90 million albums in his nearly fifty-year career and came to occupy a “commanding position in music history”.

Cash was a tremendous influence on Bob Dylan, the greatest songwriter of modern times, and they worked together in the late sixties and thereafter. Here’s a great bootleg from 1969; The Cash / Dylan Sessions

Johnny Cash Discography

Johnny Cash in 1969All thanks to Gill Bates, who has gone to the great trouble of compiling a veritable cornucopia of wonderful Cash albums. Not all of Cash’s countless works down the years, which would be nigh impossible to do, but plenty close enough!

If you don’t know about Cash, I guess the lobotomy operation went well! Congratulations!

Here’s a very high level overview of Johnny, if that’s not too disrespectful considering Johnny’s almost peerless contribution to the world of music and culture.

Johnny Cash, born J. R. Cash, (26 February 1932 – 12 September 2003) was a Grammy Award-winning American country singer-songwriter, considered to be one of the most influential American musicians of the 20th century.

https://i2.wp.com/www.penmachine.com/images/cashfinger-big.jpgCash was known for his deep, distinctive voice, the boom-chick-a-boom or “freight train” sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, his demeanour, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname “The Man in Black”.

He traditionally started his concerts with the introduction “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.”

Much of Cash’s music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption. His signature songs include “I Walk the Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ring of Fire”, “That Old Wheel” (a duet with Hank Williams Jr.), “Cocaine Blues”, and “Man in Black”. He also recorded several humorous songs, such as “One Piece at a Time”, “The One on the Right Is on the Left”, “Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog” and “A Boy Named Sue”; rock-and-roll numbers such as “Get Rhythm”; and various railroad songs, such as “Rock Island Line” and “Orange Blossom Special”.

Johnny sold over 90 million albums in his nearly fifty-year career and came to occupy a “commanding position in music history”.

Cash was a tremendous influence on Bob Dylan, the greatest songwriter of modern times, and they worked together in the late sixties and thereafter. Here’s a great bootleg from 1969; The Cash / Dylan Sessions

Anyway, here’s Johnny!!

Johnny Cash – Video: Live at Montreux

Johnny Cash – Live at Montreux
1:05:16 | 480×360 | 128 kbps mp3 | Avi | 517 MB

Johnny Cash, an American icon, is captured in this amazing performance from the 1994 Montreux Jazz Festival.

Performing 19 of his classics, including a guest appearance from his wife June on “Jackson”, Cash gives a history lesson of sorts.

At the time of the show, he had been recording for nearly 40 years and had begun regaining his well deserved reputation (thanks to certain moronic cretins, this had heretofore been somewhat tarnished) thanks to the magnificent American Recordings series of albums, the first of which having been by then released.

Tracks:

1. Folsom Prison Blues
2. Get Rhythm
3. Sunday Morning Coming Down
4. I Guess Things Happen That Way
5. I Walk The Line
6. Ring Of Fire
7. Ghost Riders In The Sky
8. Delia’s Gone Solo
9. Tennessee Stud
10. Bird On A Wire
11. Let The rain Blow The Whistle
12. The Beast In Me
13. Redemption
14. Big River
15. Jackson (with June Carter)
16. Will The Circle Be Broken
17. Orange Blossom Special
18. San Quentin
19. The Next Time I’m In Town

Here’s Johnny!
