Screaming Trees – Discography

Some fine music from Mark Lanegan and pals – Seattle’s Screaming Trees!

Wrongly lumped with the “grunge” label, this group were far better than the vast majority of those rubbish “grunge” outfits! Of course too, they were around long before that dumb “grunge” label was coined!

Lanegan of course has gone on to a a very eclectic and impressive solo career.

The boys split at the dawn of the nineties but they regrouped in 1998 to record an album but the work was never completed or released. The demos are here.

1985 – Other Worlds (Ep)
1986 – Clairvoyance
1987 – Even If and Especially When
1988 – Beat Happening-Screaming Trees (Ep)
1988 – Invisible Lantern
1989 – Buzz Factory
1990 – Change Has Come (Ep)
1990 – Something About Today (Ep)
1991 – Uncle Anesthesia
1992 – Nearly Lost You (Compilation)
1992 – Sweet Oblivion
1996 – Dust
1998 – Unreleased Album

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – Deus Ibi Est

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan
Deus Ibi Est
from Ballad of the Broken Seas
Released 2006

Day on day I march the beat to someone else’s drum

A beautiful song from the great After 2006’s great Ballad of the Broken Seas, the first collaboration by the new Lee and Nancy!

Glad to see that Isobel paid attention during her Latin classes back in secondary school!

Two videos for this track.

First, a video piece set to the original track. An excellent video. Simple but effective. Posted by goouttothemeadow. Not sure if it was he who made it though.

Second, a live performance from the dynamic duo.

Against my will to these sad shores
An unknown force has drawn me
Bound unto a future shaped by ancestors before me
Day on day I march the beat to someone else’s drum
I have searched far foreign lands there’s nowhere left to run

Impending storm rise up rise up
Oh demons I shall shame you!
Look down the barrel of my gun and one by one I’ll name you
Day on day my brothers leave go marching off to war
Yet we never understand for what we’re fighting for

Ubi caritas et amor
(Where there is tender care and love)
Ubi caritas
(Where there is tender care)
Deus ibi est
(God is present)

Worldly desires and worldly gains
Designed for worldly men
I’m a master of the heart with ears and hands to lend
Soldiers come and soldiers go some changed by love for thee
A circle in the chain of life all fighting to be free

Ubi caritas et amor
Ubi caritas
Deus ibi est

So come my lord and we shall dance
To God’s own private drum
Sweet Jesus and the holy vine
The afterlife to come
Day on day I march the the beat to someone else’s drum
I have searched far foreign lands there’s nowhere left to run

Ubi caritas et amor
Ubi caritas
Deus ibi est

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan – Sunday At The Devil Dirt (2008)

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan – Sunday At The Devil Dirt (2008)
Released May 13, 2008
Recorded 2007
Genre Indie pop
Alternative rock
Length 47:19
Label V2 Records
Producer Isobel Campbell

After 2006’s great Ballad of the Broken Seas, comes this wonderful second collaboration from the new Lee and Nancy!

This carries on the high quality of the debut and is another wonderful work!

https://i0.wp.com/thelineofbestfit.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/03/campbelllanegan.jpg

Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart was released as an EP with extra tracks.

Pitchfork review;

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan: Sunday at Devil Dirt
Rating: 6.3

It was another surprising detour in a career composed almost exclusively of detours: Isobel Campbell, former Belle & Sebastian member and sometime solo act, teamed with Mark Lanegan, taciturn former Screaming Trees singer and serial collaborator. With the release of their Ballad of the Broken Seas, the “Beauty and the Beast” lines came fast and furious. So did the Nancy and Lee comparisons, which were probably welcome. The pairing of Lanegan and Campbell may have come as a shock to fans of the latter (and maybe even the former) but the music itself was less than revelatory. Indeed, the Lee Hazelwood/Nancy Sinatra template is iconic for a reason, and to borrow it means to risk imitating them. It also means treading closely to Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, or any other somber, late-1960s orchestral pop act.

Still, the results were beautiful and brooding, with Campbell’s songwriting significantly enhanced by this very specific setting. Sequels, however, are inherently built on familiarity and a sequel to the solid yet by-the-books Ballad of the Broken Seas could be as problematic as the Hollywood models are. Yet while Sunday at Devil Dirt may be more of the same (with glimpses of Tom Waits’ junkyard blues tossed in to good effect), Campbell and Lanegan were never out to do anything different. Once again, melancholy, minor-key folk melodies, and bits of spy-theme and spaghetti-western cool color the album, typically enhanced by only the classiest of accompaniment– upright bass, strings, brushed drums, twangy electric guitars, and other chamber-pop mainstays. And once again, Campbell works better as a supporting player on her own record than as a leader, cooing and chiming away in the background. Sure, she provides most of the songwriting, but it’s Lanegan who provides the gravitas.

Fortunately, Campbell seems to realize her place here as writer and arranger first and foremost, generally ceding the spotlight to Lanegan on the likes of the bleak (of course) “The Raven” and “Back Burner”, the somewhat lighter country-blues of “Salvation” and “Sally Don’t You Cry”, and the spare folk of “Something to Believe”. Compared to Lanegan, Campbell sounds thin singing lead on “Shot Gun Blues” or as duet partner on “Who Built the Road” and “The Flame That Burns”. Her vocals are almost like post-production special effects.

In a lot of ways that’s what makes the disc such a good, breezy listen. Campbell’s turn on “Come On Over (Turn Me On)” aims for sultry yet can’t get beyond sweet and innocent; in Lanegan, however, she’s found a substitute singer that’s a perfect match for the strength of her compositions, a rumbling, grumbling vessel through which to channel her songs, themselves channeling the vibe of a lost but not forgotten time of smoky bars, scratchy jukeboxes, convertibles, open roads, broken hearts, cheap motels, and cheaper thrills. It’s a bit like a dust-specked and flickering faux Super-8 road trip reel, with Campbell manning the camera and sitting in the director’s chair and Lanegan glowering away in the uncomfortable glare of the sun.

– Joshua Klein, May 9, 2008

https://i1.wp.com/thelineofbestfit.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/02/lanegancampbell.jpg

Some people have all the luck. You know the ones I mean; the sort of folk who stride through life safe in the knowledge that Lady Fortune will prescribe yet another dose of opportunity upon which their dreams can be realised. It’s said that such fortuity favours the brave, yet when things like this and especially this happen it becomes increasingly difficult to believe that luck is anything other than a prerequisite of the privileged.

It would be easy then to argue that mouse-shy Isobel Campbell is one of the luck-struck few. Having been part of cultish twee-mongers Belle & Sebastian during, what was arguably, their most prodigious years, the Glaswegian-born songstress’ career nosedived on the release of her poorly received debut solo album (discounting two distinctly ‘meh’ Gentle Waves LPs) Amorino, leaving Campbell’s decision to flee Stuart Murdoch’s flock of bedtime reading jingle-janglers looking like a disastrous spot of self-aggrandised folly.

But then, as luck would have it, Campbell hit gold. By coaxing gravel-pit grizzly Mark Lanegan into collaborating on smoke-stained long-player Ballad Of The Broken Seas (review), the reticent cooer was transformed from corduroy-clad pin-up girl to ravishing, blues-smudged chanteuse. A devilish, fiery-eyed record exuding arresting tales of love, lust and loss, it was a remarkable juxtaposition of sandpaper and silk or, as many a hack would eagerly deduce, beauty and beast. Musically, Ballad… may not have been an entirely satisfying affair, but the stark contrast of Campbell’s sheenful purr brushed against Lanegan’s baritonal growl produced one of 2006’s most intriguing records.

Fast-forward two years and the unlikely Mercury Prize-nominated duo are once again caught in a smouldering embrace – but this time the element of surprise has disappointingly vanished. Album number two, Sunday At Devil Dirt, is comparable to the rekindling of an old flame; filled with memories of good times gone yet lacking the spark of fresh, unexplored pastures. Again penned almost entirely by Campbell before tweaked to fit Lanegan’s whisky-guzzled grumbling, there’s a distinct element of ‘seen it, done it, milking it’ to every rootsy, airsome shanty and, although executed with exemplary grace, it seems there’s not quite enough fuel left to stoke the fires of desire once more.

That’s not to say Sunday At Devil Dirt is an unmitigated catastrophe. Any record that contains the lachrymose presence of Lanegan and the smoky wafts of bromidic tone he exhales cannot fail to intrigue. But from the first brittle notes of ‘Seafaring Song’ it’s apparent that the enveloping captivation of Ballad… has disappeared, replaced with a stale, minor-key haze of strum and string while Campbell lingers sultrily in the background of Lanegan’s dilapidated crow. And it’s in this opening number’s formation where …Devil Dirt’s main problem derives.

For much of the proceeding 40-odd minutes Campbell appears so innately aware of her brutish accomplice’s ability to draw crowds she’s consigned herself to bit-part wing-woman. Tracks such as the sluggish ‘Salvation’ and gloom-laden ‘Something To Believe’ lack the sleight of touch her wistful mew provides, leaving what could be two heart-rousing duets to kick their heels in the dust-bitten rabble of Lanegan’s less than invigorated, bass-heavy growl. For sure, there are times when the ex-Screaming Trees frontman is an esteemed vocal exhilarant – adding an unequivocal snarl to ‘Back Burner’’s demanding voodoo-blues or the equally ravaged ‘The Raven’ – but, with Campbell’s main input confined to breezy harmonies, the likes of ‘Trouble’ and ‘Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart’ feel lonesome and bare-boned amidst a spate of perfunctorily arranged country laments.

When Campbell finally gets to have her say the results are heavenly: ‘Shot Gun Blues’ is a simmering bar-room rankle of steel guitar and vixen-like pleading while the tombstone bound ‘Who Built The Road’ writhes over a windswept tundra of melancholic chimes and eerie string arrangement. Yet such peaks too often succumb to Lanegan’s limelight-hogging, culminating in the beard-stroking boredom of closer ’Sally don’t You Cry’, a track that exits on such a whimper of humdrum couplets it could well have been scribed by a Johnny Cash-aping ten year old.

With Campbell’s second solo LP, 2006’s Milkwhite Sheets, barely garnering a crumb of acclaim in the pages of the unforgiving music press, it’s of no surprise to find her pulling out the stops with a double dose of prize-catch Lanegan. Yet, judging by the standards set on this less than sparkling offering, her lucky charm may be her eventual undoing.

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – Ballad of the Broken Seas ( 2006)

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – Ballad of the Broken Seas
Released 2006
Recorded 2005
Genre Indie pop
Alternative rock
Length 42:45
Label V2 Records
Producer Isobel Campbell, Dave Paterson

The first collaboration between bonnie Scots lass and ex Belle & Sebastian member Isobel Campbell and the great Mark Lanegan!

Campbell penned most of the tracks and self-produced the album. There are a few Lanegan tracks too and some nice cover, including a great track by Mr. Hank Willliams!

This fine LP made the shortlist for the 2006 Mercury Music Prize. However, the Mercury nomination provoked some criticism, as collaborator Mark Lanegan is American and the award is for British and Irish artists only. However Campbell wrote most of the tracks and self-produced the album. Campbell had written the music and some of the lyrics, before sending it to Lanegan.

The songs are excellent and there’s a nice dichotomy between Campbell’s sweetness and Lanegan’s growl especially in the context of the often dark lyrics!

A great combination! A wonderful work!

The new Lee and Nancy?? Yap!

They would work again on the great Sunday At The Devil Dirt (2008)

https://i1.wp.com/img116.imageshack.us/img116/8189/lanegancampbellsmall7aa.jpg


It’s tempting to say something facile like “beauty meets the beast” in writing about this collaboration between former Belle & Sebastian member Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan, best known for his work with Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age. After all, Campbell’s voice is all sweet angelic whisper while Lanegan’s whisky-and-nicotine rasp sounds like the product of ten thousand nights in a barroom, but somehow these sweet and sour elements come together with striking and impressive results on Ballad of the Broken Seas.

It helps that musically these two are not far away from the same page; the ghostly blues-based structures of Lanegan’s Whiskey for the Holy Ghost and The Winding Sheet may be starker than Campbell’s stuff with Belle & Sebastian or her solo set Amorino, but they both appear to revel in the sort of glorious sadness that draws beauty from melancholy, and they find a dark and lovely common ground on this set of songs.

Campbell produced the album and wrote the bulk of the material (though Lanegan wrote one song, the moody and satisfying “Revolver”), and while it’s no great surprise that she comes up with superb material for herself, she also knows what to make of Lanegan’s expressive rasp (“The Circus Is Leaving Town” is as good a performance as he’s ever recorded), and their numbers together (especially “The False Husband” and the cover of Hank Williams’ “Ramblin’ Man”) recall what one hoped Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue’s duets on Murder Ballads would sound like. Ballad of the Broken Seas is a superbly crafted bit of late-night introspection that brings out the best in both Lanegan and Campbell and adds new and unexpected facets to their impressive repertoires.

Fucking Pitchfork wrote:

Isobel Campbell was the second-best singer– and best cellist– in Belle and Sebastian. Mark Lanegan fronted grunge almost-weres Screaming Trees, one of those odd bands that everyone knows but few listen to, and he did a stint in Queens of the Stone Age. Given Belle and Sebastian’s penchant for lacy chamber pop and the Screaming Trees/QOTSA bias toward angrily trippy stoner jams, it only makes sense that Campbell’s and Lanegan’s collaboration produced a bunch of mildly acerbic sea shanties and maudlin dust-bowl folk ballads.

“Deus Ibi Est” establishes Ballad of the Broken Seas’s mise en scene– a broad, desolate expanse of metronomic kickdrum and lilting acoustic guitar. Lanegan slips into a Grinchy beatnik drawl, doing Tom Waits doing Leonard Cohen, sharpishly channeling the voice of an itinerant soldier, while Campbell’s airy Latin hook (the dead language kind, not the Ricky Martin kind) sounds as if all the Whos down in Whoville wandered into a seedy wharf bar.

If you really wanna cut the roast beast, let’s say it plain: While Campbell’s contributions to the album are far from negligible, the thing reeks of Lanegan, aligning itself with the hard-bitten American roots music of his solo albums. Lanegan’s boozy, melancholic growl and down-and-out imagery on “The Circus Is Leaving Town” would fit comfortably on a Crooked Fingers record, that pacesetter for all things indie-gone-Americana. He turns in an appropriately smoldering cover of Hank Williams’s “Ramblin’ Man”, Campbell’s whispered taunts and supplications skewing its narrative POV. Even openly sentimental songs like the hushed, piano-driven title track acquire a thin layer of grit: “We fucked up the sun to kingdom come/ You were under my blood and my skin.” Campbell’s presence seems unavoidably minimized on the duets, as her gusty chirp flutters through the holes in Lanegan’s decaying clapboard shack of a voice, yet it’s also indispensable, like the color commentary on a televised golf match.

Some of the record’s most penetrating moments arrive when either Lanegan or Campbell take center stage alone. Lanegan’s “(Do You Wanna) Come Walk With Me?”, despite moments of implied, discomforting pederasty (“Little girl, have I told you how you light up my life?/ Come and lay down beside me, come and thrill me tonight”), features the inarguably vivid and arresting lyrical turn, “There’s a crimson bird flying when I go down on you.” Campbell takes the lead on “Black Mountain” and “Saturday’s Gone”, her voice cascading over quivering strings and swirling arpeggios on the former, and riding in on clip-clopping hooves on the latter. The thirty-odd years of musical experience Campbell and Lanegan collectively possess are worn like sun-creased skin on Ballad of the Broken Seas, which manages to be consistently engaging and sufficiently memorable without making too much fuss about it.

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan – Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart EP (2008)

https://i0.wp.com/thelineofbestfit.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/03/campbelllanegan.jpg

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan – Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart EP (2008)

After 2006’s great Ballad of the Broken Seas, 2008 sees more wonderful collaboration from the new Lee and Nancy!

And this is excellent music from this incongruous yet wonderful musical pairing!

https://i1.wp.com/thelineofbestfit.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/02/lanegancampbell.jpg

This is from the recording sessions in Glasgow and the Catskills for the Sunday At The Devil Dirt (2008) released a few months back, the second fruitful collaboration between the dynamic duo after the sublime Ballad of the Broken Seas from 2006!

https://i2.wp.com/991.com/newGallery/Isobel-Campbell-Sunday-At-Devil-D-433388.jpg

The songs on the EP are tracks that Isobel felt worked best as a separate piece of work, and the discerning listener may observe a different flavour to much of the album, though as ever Campbell and Lanegan compliment each other beautifully.

Highlights include the beautiful ‘Asleep on a Sixpence’ and ‘Rambling Rose, Clinging Vine’ which already sound like instant standards.

The Twilight Singers – A Stitch In Time EP

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OQtLc1WzL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

The Twilight Singers – A Stitch In Time EP
Mp3 @ 220 avg kbps / 34MB
Released October 10, 2006 (iTunes)/ December 4, 2006 (UK CD)/ January 23, 2007 (US CD)
Recorded Helsinki, New Orleans, Los Angeles
Genre Indie rock
Length 22:57
Label One Little Indian Records
Producer Greg Dulli

A Stitch in Time was the second EP released by The Twilight Singers and was first released on iTunes on October 10, 2006. Hard copies were later released in the UK on December 4, 2006 and in the US on January 23, 2007.

A Stitch in Time features guest appearances by the great Mark Lanegan and Joseph Arthur and includes some great covers including “Live with Me”, a Massive Attack cover, and “Flashback”, a Fat Freddys Drop cover.

When former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan joined The Twilight Singers for the August 06 leg of their European tour, Kerrang Magazine declared the London show at The Scala felt like “a wickedly illicit hit from a masterfully controlled substance.”

Here we see that very special chemistry first laid down on record with the release of this EP, on One Little Indian U.S. exclusively through iTunes.

Leading with the showstopping moment from their recent tour, the hypnotic cover of Massive Attack’s “Live With Me” the five track EP not only features the Twilight Singers alongside Lanegan, but guests Joseph Arthur and Rick McCollum from Greg Dulli’s former group, The Afghan Whigs.

SPIN Magazine named “Live With Me” Number 1 on their “Songs You Need To Download Now!” list in 2006.

“Live With Me” was one of two new tracks featured on Massive Attack’s 2006 greatest hits compilation “Collected”. Dulli has long been recognized for bringing eclectic influences to his live performances since his Afghan Whigs days when, as noted by Q Magazine recently, “their sound stirred comparisons of The Rolling Stones circa 1971 fused with Prince”.

Other tracks on the EP are “Sublime”, co-written by Dulli and Joseph Arthur, and featuring Arthur on guest vocals, “Flashback”, a cover of New Zealand’s finest high-tek soulsters, Fat Freddy’s Drop and features Mark Lanegan again on vocals, “They Ride”, co-written by Dulli and Rick McCollum, and “The Lure Would Prove Too Much” written by Dulli.

The EP release follows the heavy praise The Twilight Singers received for their latest album, “Powder Burns“, and offers a preview to the highly anticipated collaboration between Dulli and Lanegan, who later recorded an album under the moniker of The Gutter Twins.

Dulli and Lanegan have regularly contributed to each other’s projects since 2000. Lanegan was recently shortlisted for a Mercury Music Prize in the UK for his previous collaboration with Isobel Campbell, “Ballad Of The Broken Seas”.

Additionally,for the first time since parting company in 2001, former Whigs bandmates John Curley, Rick McCollum and Michael Horrigan recently joined forces again with Dulli to record new tracks for an upcoming Rhino retrospective Unbreakable, at Ardent Studios in Memphis,TN with longtime collaborator Jeff Powell.

It was during the last U.S. tour in support of the release of Powder Burns that the Twilight Singers were first joined by Mark Lanegan at an emotional show at One Eyed Jack’s in New Orleans. Both Dulli and Lanegan have strong ties to the city devastated the year before by Hurricane Katrina.

The Gutter Twins – Adorata (2008 iTunes exclusive EP)

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OQtLc1WzL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

The Gutter Twins – Adorata (2008)
iTunes exclusive EP
Mp3 @ 320 kbps / 68.5 MB
Released: September 2, 2008

Label: Sub Pop (SP #45932)
Recorded: 2003-2008
Genre: Alternative rock
Length: 33:03
Producer: Greg Dulli, Mark Lanegan


Man, this has set things off well for the fun filled weekend in store! Yap, The Emergency Room Gogo bar is reopening with half-price women, sorry drinks, tonight!

Almost as good as that – well, in the ballpark, but not really! – is the wonderful new EP from the Dirty Duo!

Yap, Adorata is the new iTunes exclusive EP from The Gutter Twins aka whiggy Greg Dulli and the wonderful Mark Lanegan!

On this 8-track EP, the Twins stick pretty close to the blues rock that they established with their full-length, Saturnalia, earlier this year.

IN fact, the EP was mostly recorded during sessions for Saturnalia.

We get one original Twins composition, the mellow “Belles”, and an eclectic series of covers of songs by the likes of Jose Gonzalez, Scott Walker, Primal Scream, and Vetiver.

The boys stamp their own authority on these rather excellent songs. The results are some beautifully wrenching tracks.

All in all, Adorata, is a very good EP, as strong as one would expect given the exceptional track record of Dulli and, especially, Lanegan!

Of very significant note is the fact that a portion of the proceeds from the release of Adorata will, very kindly, go to the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund.

Natasha, a long-time friend of the band, was the lead singer for Eleven – a band we really liked – and was also a member of Queens Of The Stone Age.

Very sadly, on July 2, 2008 Natasha passed away following a battle with cancer. She was only 32.

Proceeds from the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund will be used to defray the costs associated with Natasha’s illness.

Therefore, please buy the original GT work.

We’ve already said that a portion of the proceeds from the release of Adorata will, very kindly, go to the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund – established to defray the costs associated with the late Natasha’s illness.

We really respect the generosity of this gesture by The Gutter Twins. Therefore, we encourage true music fans to please buy the original Adorata.

Live with me by the Twilight Singers (Greg Dulli et al) and Mark Lanegan

Great cover of Massive Attack’s Live with me by the Twilight Singers with Mark Lanegan.

The lyrics aren’t exactly Dylan-like, but the song, especially with Lanegan’s presence, has a distinct power.


Nice vid too.

That chick sure can drink! Must be a distant relative of mine!

https://i1.wp.com/www.erosblog.com/sex-blog-pictures/painted-to-match-the-wallpaper.jpg

It don’t matter, when you turn
Gonna Survive, live and learn
I’ve been thinking about you, baby
By the light of dawn,
My midnight blues,
day and night
I’ve been missing you.

I’ve been thinking about you, baby.
Almost makes me crazy,
Come and live with me.

Either way, Win or Lose,
When you’re born into trouble,
You live the blues,
I’ve been thinking about you, baby.
See it almost makes me crazy

Times, Nothing’s right, if you ain’t here
I’ll give all that I have, just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, I tried to, make it clear
You just don’t believe that I’m sincere
I’ve been thinking about you, baby.

Plans and schemes, hopes and fears
Dreams that deny, for all these years
I, I’ve been thinking about you, baby
Living with me

I’ve been thinking about you, baby
Makes me wanna [hoooo, hoooo,hoooo,hoooo]
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Times, Nothing’s right, if you ain’t here
I’ll give all that I have, just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, darling, tried to make it clear,
But you just don’t believe that I’m sincere

I’ve been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me, wow
I’ve been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me

Black girl, black girl, don’t lie to me,
where did you stay last night?
This powerful, timeless, traditional classic is best known via the scintillating version from Kurt Cobain in Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged in NYC show.

Topmost amongst the highlights of that show was the very intense performance by Kurt Cobain of Leadbelly’s version of Where Did You Sleep Last Night.

Could Kurt perhaps have been making the lyrics autobiographical and been referring to a certain skank to whom he was attached?! Course not!

“Where Did You Sleep Last Night” was actually performed live by Nirvana a few times during the early 1990s.

Cobain was introduced to the song by his pal Mark Lanegan (formerly of Seattle’s excellent Screaming Trees), and Kurt even played guitar on Lanegan’s version! Like Lanegan too, Cobain usually screamed the song’s final verse. Imitation is the best form of flattery!

Cobain earned critical and commercial acclaim for his acoustic performance of the song during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged appearance in 1993. This version was posthumously released on the band’s MTV Unplugged in New York album (and as a B-side on their recalled “Pennyroyal Tea” single) the following year.

A solo Cobain home demo of the song, recorded in 1990, appears on Nirvana’s 2004 box set, With the Lights Out. It does not feature the final screamed verse of later versions.

https://i2.wp.com/img.villagephotos.com/p/2006-11/1227628/mark_lanegan_arf_2004.jpg

An electric version of “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” was recorded by Mark Lanegan in August 1989 and appears on his 1990 debut solo album, The Winding Sheet. Catch this track in the vid below at the end of the post. Also in the composite RAR below. Also here; Mark_Lanegan- Sleep_Last_Night.mp3

In 2006 the Twilight Singers toured with Lanegan as guest vocalist and performed the song live several times. Catch the Twilight Singers with Laneganthis performing this track in the vid below at the end of the post.

This classic Appalachian traditional song is more properly called “In the Pines“.

“In the Pines” – also known as “Black Girl” and “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” – is a traditional American folk song which dates back to at least the 1870s, and is believed to be Southern Appalachian in origin.

Over the years, the song has been sung by countless singers and has been recorded by many dozens of artists in numerous genres and in numerous versions.

The identity of the song’s original author is unknown. In fact the song has undergone so many mutations and transformations that, like many traditional songs, it does not, nor could not, have one person to whom authorship could properly be ascribed.

However, Kurt Cobain attributed authorship to Huddie William Ledbetter (January, 1888 – December 6, 1949) – better known as Leadbelly – who had recorded the song several times, beginning in 1944.

Nevertheless, the fact is that all the kernel elements of the song were written years before Leadbelly ever heard it – even years before Leadbelly was born!

Interestingly, and bizarrely, though, it does appear that Leadbelly did somehow manage to obtain legal copyright on the song!

Leadbelly did make small adaptations to certain versions of the song that had thertofore circulated to form his own version of the old song. However, the the version performed by Leadbelly (and covered by Mark Lanegan and Nirvana etc.) does not differ at all substantially from other, far older variants of the song, which, like Leadbelly’s, are performed in 3/4 time.

https://i1.wp.com/www.vh1.com/sitewide/flipbooks/img/artists/bob_dylan/no_direction_home/27.jpg
Bob Dylan, especially in his earliest days on the folk circuit, has performed “In the Pines” a number of times at his shows. The track also appears on a number of different Dylan bootlegs but a Dylan version was never officially recorded or released.

The version below is from a Dylan show at Carnegie Chapter Hall, NY November 4, 1961, as captured on the wonderful early Dylan bootleg Dylan’s Roots.

Dylan’s version is strongly based on Leadbelly’s with some small changes to the lyrics.

https://i1.wp.com/www.taplines.net/gfa/gaflaandalatraincarrabelle.jpg

As referred to, this traditional Appalachian song dates back to the 1870s – most probably earlier – and, like countless other folk songs, “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” was passed on from one generation and locale to the next by word of mouth.

Lyrics in some versions about “Joe Brown’s coal mine” and “the Georgia line” may date it to Joseph E. Brown, a former Governor of Georgia, who famously leased convicts to operate coal mines in the 1870s.

Over time the song evolved and acquired numerous variants, none of which are definitive.

The first printed version of the song, compiled by Cecil Sharp, appeared in 1917, and comprised just four lines and a melody.

The Cecil Sharp lines are:


Black girl, black girl, don’t lie to me
Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shines
And shivered when the cold wind blows

In 1925, a version of the song was recorded onto phonograph cylinder by a folk collector. This was the first documentation of “The Longest Train” variant of the song.

This variant includes at least one stanza about “The longest train I ever saw”. These go along the lines of the following (however, again there are sub-variations even within this variant!)

The longest train I ever saw
Went down that Georgia Line
The engine passed at six o’clock
and the cab went by at nine

The longest train I ever saw
was 19 coaches long
The only boy I ever loved
is on that train and gone

The kernel of “The Longest Train” stanza(s) originally comes from a separate song entirely, that over time merged into “Where Did You Sleep Last Night”.


Yes, there does actually exist a totally separate traditional song known as “The longest train I ever saw”, wherein are essentially the same lines;

The longest train I ever saw
Run by Joe Brown’s coal mine
The headlight passed at six o’clock
The cab came by at nine

The prettiest girl I ever saw
Is on that train an’ gone
Her eyes were blue, her cheeks was brown
An’ her hair is hung way down

Th train it wrecked at four miles
It killed my Evalane
Her head was found in th driver’s seat
Her poor body hain’t been found

Th longest way, th longest day
The longest night
Was th day Evalane died

I walked th track
Whole day alone
I bowed my head an’ cried

Th long steel rail, the short cross ties
They carried away
The arms that brought me safely here
But I’ll make it home, someday

And where is any proper traditional song without death and sadness!

Where Did You Sleep Last Night, in many variants, tells of the grisly decapitation of the protagonist’s loved one, often ascribed to a train.

Early renditions, wherein mention is made that someone’s “head was found in the driver’s wheel”, usually make clear that a train caused the decapitation.

However, a number of later versions would drop the reference to the train and reattribute the cause of the decapitation/ death to different and various sources.

Music historian Norm Cohen, in his 1981 book “Long Steel Rail: The Railroad in American Folksong,” states that eventually the song came to consist of three frequent elements:

  • a chorus about “in the pines”,
  • a stanza (or more) about “the longest train”
  • a stanza (or more) about a decapitation.

However, not all elements are present in every version!

https://i1.wp.com/blog.oregonlive.com/popmusic/2007/08/leadbelly.jpgIn the Leadbelly version, the “in the pines” chorus is prominent but the longest train verse is excluded entirely.

However, the death of the protagonist’s loved one is clearly stated and it’s cause attributed indirectly to a train. In rather macabre fashion, only the corpse’s head is found!

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

In a 1970 dissertation, Judith McCulloh found 160 permutations of the song.

McCulloh’s findings included facts such as that, as well as rearrangement of the three frequent elements, the person who goes into the pines or who is decapitated has been described as a man, a woman, an adolescent, a wife, a husband or a parent, while the pines have represented sexuality, death or loneliness.

The train has been described killing a loved one, as taking one’s beloved away or as leaving an itinerant worker far from home.

In variants where the song describes a confrontation, the person being challenged is always a woman, and never a man. The Kossoy Sisters folk version asks, “Little girl, little girl, where’d you stay last night? Not even your mother knows.”

The reply to one version’s “Where did you get that dress, and those shoes that are so fine?” is “from a man in the mines, who sleeps in the pines.”

The theme of a woman who has been caught doing something she should not is also common to many variants.

One variant, sang in the early twentieth century by the Ellison clan (Ora Ellison, deceased) in Lookout Mountain Georgia, told of the rape of a young Georgia girl, who fled to the pines in shame. Her rapist, a male soldier, was later beheaded by the train. Mrs. Ellison had stated that it was her belief that the song was from the time shortly after the civil war.

The only conclusion to be drawn is that this great song, over many many years, took on a life of it’s own, mutated into countless versions – even absorbing other songs into the mix – but retained it’s inherent, elemental power, it’s timelessness!


Here are the lyrics to the best known version, officially ascribed to the great Huddie Ledbetter!

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Mark Lanegan Band – Bubblegum

Mark Lanegan Band – Bubblegum
Mp3 / vbr.
Released August 10, 2004
Recorded 2003-2004
Genre Alternative rock
Length 49:06
Label Beggars Banquet
Producer Mark Lanegan, Chris Goss, Alain Johannes

Will you put on that long white dress, while I burn when there’s no more tomorrows?


Bubblegum is an album by the great Mark Lanegan, released in 2004 on the Beggars Banquet label under the handle “Mark Lanegan Band”. And what a band! A cast of thousands … almost!
The release features a prominent cast of guest musicians, among which are PJ Harvey, Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri of Queens of the Stone Age, Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs, and Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin of Guns N’ Roses. Also appearing on Bubblegum is Lanegan’s ex-wife, Wendy Rae Fowler.

Bubblegum is Lanegan’s most commercially successful to date, reaching number 39 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart.

Mark Lanegan – Hit The City

From: Dreadlion420
Bubblegum received mixed reviews from music critics.

Allmusic’s Mark Deming described the album thusly, awarding the album four out of five;

“With the Screaming Trees an increasingly distant memory and his brief tenure with Queens of the Stone Age seemingly over and done, Mark Lanegan appears to have well and truly become a solo artist, and while the dark and blues-shot introspections of Whiskey for the Holy Ghost and The Winding Sheet felt like a respite from Lanegan’s usual musical diet of the time, Bubblegum sounds like an effort to fuse the nocturnal atmospherics of his solo work with the impressive brain/brawn ratio of his better-known bands.”

The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis, who awarded the album four out of five stars, wrote :

“Lanegan once called his bluesy solo work “death dirges”. From its matt black cover inwards, Bubblegum never stints on the dark stuff. There is drug-induced despair and failed romance, with music to match: sibilant drum machines that recall 1970s art-punks Suicide, dolefully minimal guitar figures, shrieking feedback and the unmistakable wail of PJ Harvey on backing vocals.” Petridis

Pitchfork Media reviewer Matthew Murphy commented

“Throughout Bubblegum, Lanegan proves himself adroit at navigating the back alleys of Babylon, but after the record’s umpteenth reference to loaded shotguns, ’73 Buicks, and goin’ cold turkey, one can’t help but think he might eventually want to take a stab at some new material. So far, his voice has proven to be well-suited for whatever use he has put it to; hopefully next time he strays a little further afield to better stretch its limits.”

Mark Lanegan – Wedding Dress (live on Irish TV)

From: kyussqotsa666
Bubblegum was Lanegan’s breakout album. Upon its release in August 2004, Bubblegum peaked at #39 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart. The album granted Lanegan’ his first commercially successful album.

Bubblegum peaked at #19 in Italy, #28 in Belgia, #30 in Norway, #35 in Finland, #36 in Netherland, #43 in the United Kingdom, #67 in Germany and #189 in France.

The single “Hit the City” peaked at 76 on the British singles chart and is Lanegan’s first charted single.

https://i1.wp.com/www.danieljohnsonwrites.com/music/pics/lanegan2.jpg

When Bubblegum was released, Lanegan was still a full time member of Queens of the Stone Age, and was recording Lullabies to Paralyze which would be the last album with the band. The Lullabies album was delayed because Lanegan released Bubblegum.

Soulsavers (with Mark Lanegan) – Revival EP

//www.gigwise.com/artists/00019551_soulsavers.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Soulsavers – Revival EP
Indie / 2007 / mp3 192 kps / 9mb / RS

Why am I so blind with my eyes wide open?
Trying to get my hands clean in dirty water


Soulsavers are an English production and remix team comprised of members Rich Machin and Ian Glover.

They have released two albums, Tough Guys Don’t Dance in 2003 and It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land in 2007 – a truly great album.


Here’s the post on Soulsavers magnificent album It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land;

You can find loads of other Lanegan stuff here; MARK LANEGAN

Mark Lanegan has had a noteworthy career as a solo artist. However, until quite recently Mark was best known for his tenure as the lead singer of Screaming Trees, a band that were categorised within the Seattle grunge phenomenon of the 1990s but who made some great albums which in reality were bigger and better than – and indeed defied – the limiting label of ‘grunge’.

So here, from the great It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land, the wonderful opening track “Revival” has been released as an EP and has received very favourable critical response.

“Revival” is an uplifting sway of gospel-like chorals below Lanegan’s gruff idiosyncratic vocals singing of forgiveness and the greatest sin of all, lust (well, it’s my favourite anyway!!).

This magnificent musical and lyrical piece sets the tone for the entire album.

Revival

Said gonna be a revival tonight
I wanna see a revival yeah
Gonna be a revival tonight
Lord, let there be a revival yeah

Forgive what I have done
It means my soul’s survival,
I need you so, it’s sin
Put an end to my suffering

Why am I so blind with my eyes wide open?
Trying to get my hands clean in dirty water

I wanna see a revival tonight
Lord, let there be a revival yeah
I need to see a revival tonight
Wanna see a revival

Why am I so blind with my eyes wide open? yeah
Now I need someone
Let this dark night be done

I need you so, it’s sin
Put an end to my suffering
I wanna see a revival tonight
Lord, there needs to be a revival

Soulsavers (with Mark Lanegan) – It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land – 2007

Soulsavers – It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land
Indie / 2007 / mp3 192 kps / 61mb / RS
This rain beats down like death.
You turn your eyes to better men.
Before I go I’m hangin’ a cross on the nail
I hung one for you in there.



Soulsavers are an English production and remix team comprised of members Rich Machin and Ian Glover.

They have released two albums, Tough Guys Don’t Dance in 2003 and It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land in 2007 – a truly great album the details of – and the download for – which you can get right here;

Mark Lanegan has had a noteworthy career as a solo artist. However, until quite recently Mark was best known for his tenure as the lead singer of Screaming Trees, a band that were categorised within the Seattle grunge phenomenon of the 1990s but who made some great albums which in reality were bigger and better than – and indeed defied – the limiting label of ‘grunge’.

This second Soulsavers album features renowned American singer Mark Lanegan as vocalist and also as co-writer for five of the album’s songs.

This record proves a significant addition to Lanegan’s considerable body of work, which includes his work as a solo artist and also variously as part of the Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age – as well as recently the wonderful ‘Lee and Nancy’ type collaborations with Isobel Campbell, in the albums Ballad of the Broken Seas and 2008’s great Sunday at Devil Dirt (both will be posted here real soon .. I can’t fucking believe I didn’t post em before!)

In October 2006, Soulsavers announced on their Myspace site that they were putting the finishing touches to their new album “It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s The Way You Land”, which featured Mark Lanegan on 8 of the albums tracks.

Although the album is not credited as Soulsavers And Mark Lanegan, Mark did have a very significant input. As well as appearing as vocalist, the tracks “Revival”, “Ghosts Of You And Me”, “Paper Money” and “Jesus Of Nothing” are credited as written by Mark Lanegan and Soulsavers.

The album also features a re-working of the truly magnificent “Kingdoms Of Rain“, which featured on Lanegan’s second excellent solo album, “Whiskey For The Holy Ghost”.
Soulsavers recorded the tracks in England with Lanegan recording the vocals at Conway Studios in Los Angeles.

The album also features guests the great Will Oldham as well as Jimi Goodwin of Doves and PW Long.


The great opening track “Revival” has been released as an EP and has received very favourable critical response.

“Revival” is an uplifting sway of gospel-like chorals below Lanegan’s gruff idiosyncratic vocals singing of forgiveness and the greatest sin of all, lust (well it’s my favourite anyway!).

This magnificent musical and lyrical piece sets the tone for the entire album.

https://i0.wp.com/www.fileunder.nl/archives/images/2007/07/soul_savers_klein.jpg


Verdict

It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s The Way You Land is a truly excellent piece of work and without doubt up there with 2007’s best offerings.

The key figure is Lanegan and here he finds musically and texturally a perfect match and also an ideal backdrop for his troubled lyrics of religious fervour, black little sins and dark devouring desires.

The musical styles are very varied and complex, varying from gospel sways to moody techno dirges which, along with Lanegan’s unique vocal style and tremendous lyrics, takes us on a fascinating, complex, multi-faceted journey to somewhere dark and beautiful.

After the wonderful recent collaboration with Isobel Campbell, Ballad of the Broken Seas, and now this, it seems Mark Lanegan is on one hell of a roll! Hopefully, this will help bring him the level of widespread recognition his troubled genius deserves. The other band members ain’t too bad either!

Mark Lanegan – Kingdoms Of Rain

Kingdoms of Rain

Are those halos in your hair
Or diamonds shining there
Without a hope, without a prayer
This rain beats down like death
You turn your eyes to better men
Before I go I’ll hang a cross on a nail
I hung one for you in there

Girl lay your shame to rest
Hope lies close to your breast
You stoop to feed the crows
Some scraps of truth already cold
Before I go I’ll hang a cross on a nail
I hung one for you in there
And every kingdom of rain comes fallin’ down
Cause I loved you so long
Cause I loved you so long

Would you put halos in your hair
Without a hope without a prayer
With lies close to your breast
You finally lay your shame to rest
Before I go I’ll hang a cross on a nail
I hung one for you in there
And every kingdom of rain comes fallin’ down
Cause I loved you so long
cause I loved you so long
cause I loved you so long

Here’s Mark’s great song as performed on the recent great Soulsavers album It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land.

Screaming Trees – Demos for Unreleased Album 1998

Screaming Trees – Demos for Unreleased Album 1998

Before the excellent Screaming Trees finally called it quits, they recorded demos in 1998 to shop to record labels.

The quality is excellent and the songs are top notch! About 31 minutes of amazing and new Screaming Trees music!

I hope you enjoy these studio gems, the last ever recorded by the Trees. Sob, Sob!

Mark Lanegan apparently said a few years back that there were plans for releasing the album and said that its release would make him happy because it contained some of his favorite Screaming Trees songs. This, alas, never ultimately transpired.

Trees fan Multiverse says;

Some time ago, I read a couple of interviews and rumors about an unreleased albums by Screaming Trees after Dust, but the Trees were always a bit ambiguous about it.

There was a whole mystery about those songs. Someone said that they hadn’t a label interested on it, others said that the musicians weren’t happy with the result of the sessions and in some interview one of the Conner brothers said that there were no plans of releasing it.

At first when I was downloading the album I thought that when I’ll open the zip file I’ll end up having some rare tracks and b-sides from singles, but it certainly worth the chance of having the lost album from the Screaming Trees. My surprise was big when I saw the name of the songs and realize that I only knew “One Way Conversation” a never released song that I found some time ago on the web.

The 8 songs have an awesome sound quality. These songs aren’t demos, they are well recorded and produced songs. My second surprise came when I listened to the songs. They were pretty good. They sounded like Dust, but taken a step forward with a more modern rock sound.

I think that I must say something about every song here:

– “Ash Grey Sunday”: is one of my favorite songs here. It rocks good. An outstanding composition of what could have been a single. The guitar melody is one of the highlights on the song.
– “Tomorrow Changes”: sounds like a song from a Mark Lanegan’s solo album, despite of it’s slight resemblances to the vibe of “Sworn And Broken”.
– “One Way Conversation”: is a folky song with awesome vocal harmonies. Here on some parts Lanegan recorded two voices on different octaves which makes a fine effect.
– “Low Life”: sounds more like a song from the second half of Sweet Oblivion in its basic structure.
– “Anita Grey (Cut): is a terrific song with a basic short riff and a catchy chorus. Gary Lee Conner does one of his usual psychedelic guitar performances in the solo which has resemblances to the ones he made on Uncle Anesthesia.
– “Crawl Space”: is an obscure song in the line of the latest Mark Lanegan’s work.
– “Revelator”: another great song with an amazing chorus.
– “Anita Grey (Alt. Version)”: is the only song without a perfect sound quality. It’s good, but not as good as the other version, despite of it’s incredible psychedelic guitars.

Tracklisting

1 – Ash Grey Sunday
2 – Tomorrow Changes
3 – One Way Conversation
4 – Low Life
5 – Anita Grey
6 – Crawl Space
7 – Revelator
8 – Anita Grey (alternate version)

Mark Lanegan – Solo Discography!

https://i0.wp.com/image.listen.com/img/356x237/9/0/6/6/506609_356x237.jpg
Mark Lanegan (born November 25, 1964 in Ellensburg, Washington) has had a very noteworthy career as a solo artist and also as a collaborator with the likes of Isobel Campbell (on two supreme albums already posted here), Soulsavers (already posted here), Queens of the Stone Age (some stuff already posted here), The Twilight Singers, The Baldwin Brothers, The Gutter Twins, etc

You can find loads of other Lanegan stuff here; MARK LANEGAN

Formerly, Lanegan was best known for his tenure of the Seattle grunge band Screaming Trees with whom he was as lead singer in the period 1985-2000.

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f5/Mark_lanegan.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Lanegan’s solo career began while he was still working with Screaming Trees, but has continued beyond the band’s official dissolution in 2000.

In 1990, Lanegan released his first solo album, The Winding Sheet, on the legendary label Sub Pop, which also hosted Nirvana, Soundgarden and many others. Around this time, Lanegan had a blues-based side-project which featured Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana fame on guitar and bass respectively, with then Screaming Trees drummer Mark Pickerel on drums.

A number of tracks were recorded, including a cover of Leadbelly’s version of Where Did You Sleep Last Night?, appearing on The Winding Sheet, and “Ain’t it a Shame,” which is available on the Nirvana box set With The Lights Out. Cobain also supplied backing vocals on “Down In The Dark” on Lanegan’s debut.

Nirvana would later go on to perform Where Did You Sleep Last Night at their famous Unplugged performance in New York. In the end, the majority of the album was recorded with Pickerel on drums, Mike Johnson (who would later go on to play bass with Dinosaur Jr.) on guitar, Steve Fisk on piano and organ, and Jack Endino on bass.

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/30/Mark_Lanegan_2.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.The second record, 1994’s sublime Whiskey for the Holy Ghost, was a far more cohesive recording, with such ethereal songs as “The River Rise,” “Kingdoms of Rain,” “Riding the Nightingale” and “Beggar’s Blues.” Taking nearly three years to make, the album came close to not seeing the light of day as Lanegan was set to throw the master tapes in a pond outside of the recording studio, only to be stopped by Producer Jack Endino at the last moment.

In 1995 Lanegan appeared on Above, the sole album by the “grunge supergroup” Mad Season. The group was formed in late 1994 by Layne Staley of Alice in Chains, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees and John Baker Saunders of The Walkabouts. Lanegan appeared on “Long Gone Day” and “I’m Above”.

https://i0.wp.com/www.fileunder.nl/archives/images/2007/07/soul_savers_klein.jpg

In 1998 Scraps At Midnight was released. The album was recorded the previous winter after completing a tour with his band the Screaming Trees, which was unfortunately plagued by great inner-turmoil. It was recorded in Joshua Tree, California and produced by long-time friend and collaborator Mike Johnson, immediately after Lanegan was released from rehab.

The fourth of his solo recordings was 1999’s I’ll Take Care of You, on which Lanegan covers songs by prominent folk and R&B artists such as Tim Hardin and Booker T. and the MGs, as well as country icon Buck Owens.

2001 saw the release of his fifth album proper, Field Songs. This album had a more low-key feel than its predecessors and also featured friend Duff McKagan, as well as major contributions from former Soundgarden bassist, Ben Shepherd.

2003 saw him appear on Greg Dulli’s The Twilight Singers record Blackberry Belle, sharing lead vocal duties on the epic closing track, “Number Nine”. This would be the first in many collaborations with Dulli and The Twilight Singers.

On his 2004 solo album, Bubblegum, Lanegan was joined by a cadre of prominent artists, including P. J. Harvey, Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri of Queens of the Stone Age, Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers, Dean Ween of Ween, and Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin, previously of Guns N’ Roses.

Also appearing on Bubblegum is Lanegan’s ex-wife, Wendy Rae Fowler. The favorably reviewed album is his most commercially successful to date, reaching number 39 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart and the album received glowing review by critics.

https://i0.wp.com/www.fileunder.nl/archives/images/2007/07/soul_savers_klein.jpg

So without further ado (or further fucking around!), here are Lanegan’s great Solo Studio albums;

1990 – The Winding Sheet
1994 – Whiskey for the Holy Ghost
1998 – Scraps at Midnight
1999 – I’ll Take Care of You
2001 – Field Songs
2004 – Bubblegum

The Mark Lanegan Band – I’ll Take Care Of You (Brook Benton cover) live on Irish TV


The Mark Lanegan Band – I’ll Take Care Of You (Brook Benton cover) live on Irish TV channel RTE, November 2004.

This was part of an Irish TV Music Show series which was rather surreally recorded in a tiny ancient church somewhere in the Wild West of Ireland! And believe me, you don’t know wild until you’ve known the Wild West of Ireland!


The line-up on this fine piece includes Mark Lanegan (vox), Brett Netson (guitar), Norman Block (drums), Aldo Struyf (keyboards) and Eddie Nappi (Bass).

I know you’ve been hurt
By someone else
I can tell by the way
You carry yourself
But if you’ll let me
Here’s what I’ll do
I’ll take care of you

I loved and lost
Same as you
So you see I know
Just what you’ve been through
So if you’ll let me
Here’s what I’ll do
I got to take care of you

You won’t ever have to worry
You won’t ever have to cry
I’ll be there beside you
To dry your weeping eyes

So darlin’ tell me
That you’ll be true
‘Cause there’s no doubt in my mind
I know what I want to do
And just as sure as
One and one are two
I just got to take care of you
I’ll take care of you
I’ll take care of you

One of Mark’s post Screaming Trees solo outings – his fourth – and very fine it is too.

Here he covers tracks by artists he loves and pays tribute to his musical roots.

Some great songs in here and some idiosyncratic selections!

Man, I had this one on such heavy rotation back in 99, my crappy stereo almost broke!

Reviews here;

Lanegan’s tribute to his roots follows the successful template of his solo albums: spare acoustics, tastefully brushed drums, moody flourishes of vibes and the occasional reverbed electric guitar stitched lovingly and intoxicatingly through songs by …Buck Owens? It works, trust me, it works.

Boasting a superb song selection that covers everything from traditional folk songs to soul chestnuts to re-wired punk, Lanegan and company craft a moody, smokey, ultimately satisfying cover album that — like the most comfortable beds — sounds slept in.

pitchforkmedia …. Rating: 7.5

For his cover of Eddie Floyd’s 1969 single “Consider Me,” former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan eschews the original song’s doo-wop background singers and muffles the plush horn section that bears its Stax/Volt pedigree. He leans his gravelly groan on the chorus’ lead in (“You’re gonna need a man/ A man who’ll understand”), lending urgency and a smoky mystery to this otherwise fairly pedestrian refrain. Why does the woman in this song need so much understanding? Why is her need so dire? What has she done to cause the abandonment of her friends? There’s a creeping darkness in Lanegan’s voice here– something not apparent in the jumpy R&B of the original. It’s the realization of a transgression unimaginable at the time of the track’s original release. By the time Lanegan gets around to crooning the song’s plaintive chorus, we’re left wondering if his ostracized subject really has any choice but to accept his offer.

By slightly tweaking its connotation, Lanegan transports the song into a context of his own making. It’s this context, carried across the 11 covers on I’ll Take Care of You, that allows the album’s unique success. Compared to standard cover songs, where there’s almost always an obvious disconnect between the song and the band, Lanegan makes these songs his own. See, this is a collection of songs that are of the same origin and landscape as Lanegan’s previous works– a landscape recognizable as the stark, tortured midnight soul of his previous three solo affairs. And while molding classics– like O.V. Wright’s gospel testimony “On Jesus’ Program” or the traditional “Little Sadie”– into this landscape may not seem like a stretch, placing them seamlessly alongside the Gun Club’s “Carry Home” and the Leaving Trains’ “Creeping Coastline of Lights” definitely is.

Superficially, I’ll Take Care of You isn’t much of an achievement for Lanegan. After all, he didn’t write any of these songs, and he doesn’t explore much new sonic territory. It’s the type of album artists generally release to fulfill a contract or take a breather. But examined closely, it’s much more than that. Because in this collection, Lanegan’s managed to tug on the timeless threads that hold the patchwork of American music together. And that’s certainly something to consider.

Neil Lieberman, May 15, 2006

https://i0.wp.com/image.listen.com/img/356x237/9/0/6/6/506609_356x237.jpg
I’ve been a big Mark Lanegan fan since the eighties when he was the driving force behind the Screaming Trees. He has mellowed considerably since he produced some of the best hard rock in the world and in fact all of his solo albums are been more acoustic than electric (with the occasional but glorious exception like “Hit the City” from BUBBLEGUM). A substantial part of his appeal has been his gifts as a songwriter. Mark Lanegan is a great performer, but his songwriting is an integral part of who he is as a performer. Which makes I’LL TAKE CARE OF YOU, a album of covers, all the more shocking. He literally takes these songs and makes them his own.

I’m not sure that Lanegan is paying tribute to his roots. Some artists do that, but I get the sense here that he is simply choosing some marvelous, but neglected songs. Most are unfamiliar. The ones that are more familiar are perhaps the most surprising, like the Bobby Bland classic title track or mildly shocking inclusion of the Buck Owens’s (pre-HEE HAW) “Together Again.” I was delighted to see him cover the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce (of The Gun Club) song “Carry Home.” It is a remarkably diverse body of material, but somehow Lanegan masterfully blends it all together.

My lone complaint with the album is that it is short. It may be the shortest album Lanegan has ever released apart from EPs. Nevertheless, this is one of his crucial albums. His greatest solo album is unquestionably WHISKEY FOR THE HOLY GHOST, but several others are definitely worth getting immersed in, in particular this fine album, BUBBLEGUM (with some of his best individual songs), and SCRAPS AT MIDNIGHT, though I also very highly recommend the great Isobel Campbell album on which Lanegan provides magnificent support (Campbell writes most of the songs, but Lanegan is magnificent throughout, especially in helping her cover Hank Williams’s “Ramblin’ Man” and singing Campbell’s great “The Circus is Leaving Town”).
