The Loved Ones – "Sad Dark Eyes"

by sleepybutterfly


Darling, I want to kiss your burning mouth, your sad dark eyes and your ghostlike soul.

“Sad Dark Eyes” was a 1966 song by pioneering Australian rock band The Loved Ones.

A powerful blues-rock/pop song that has proven very influential.

Beautiful, strong lyrics here in this song! I can recall a couple of Nick Cave tracks where he rips off some of these great lyrics!

The Loved Ones were formed in Melbourne in 1965 by Gerry Humphreys, Ian Clyne and Kim Lynch in the wake of the British Invasion.

Although the band’s career lasted only two years, the group is now regarded as one of the most significant Australian bands of the sixties.

“Sad Dark Eyes” has been covered by Ed Kuepper, Die Haut with Mick Harvey, Die Haut with Nick Cave, and by Mick Harvey ‘solo’.

Die Haut first covered the song on their 1988 LP Headless Body In Topless Bar with Mick on vocals.

Die Haut recorded this live version on the LP Sweat – Live at Berlin Metropol, August 24, 1992, and Apeldoorn August 1992.


The Loved Ones were renowned as an exciting, if erratic, live act in a Stones/Animals mould, and quickly rose to prominence in the local club and dance scene.

The group’s visual impact was heightened by their striking mod stage attire and the band had a strong focal point thanks to the charismatic stage presence, saturnine good looks and growling, blues-influenced baritone voice of Humphreys, who is widely acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest male pop-rock vocalists.

The Loved Ones’ were also one of the first Australian pop bands to use electric piano as part of their regular stage set-up and their distinctive keyboard-based sound set them apart from most of their contemporaries.

This song, Sad Dark Eyes, followed the successful singles, The Loved One and Everlovin Man. By this time, Clyne had left and been replaced on piano by Treva Richards.

The band had some further single successes, including Blueberry Hill, but broke up in November 1967.

Sadly, Humphreys died in December 2005 of a heart attack.

Sad Dark Eyes

I look at you in your sad dark eyes
And your gypsy face with your Spanish grace
With your words like rhymes and your voice like chimes

Darling, I want to kiss your burning mouth
Your sad dark eyes and your ghostlike soul
Darling baby say that you’ll be mine

Put your ring on my finger
And comb your long red hair
Put on your sad eyes
And tell me that you care
That you’ll be mine, you’ll be mine
Until the end of time

– Humphreys/Lovett/Richards/Lynch/Anderson/LPA

Gene Vincent – Am I That Easy to Forget

Image

Gene Vincent – Am I That Easy to Forget
Mp3 128 Kbps

Gene Vincent sings Country Rock!

This album documents the Challenge labels’ efforts to reinvent the ’50s Rock ‘N’ Roll icon as an LA Folk/Country rocker in the mid-to-late ’60s, with a slew of beautiful songs almost on a par with The Gosdin Brothers’ seminal The Sounds Of Goodbye or The International Submarine Band’s debut. In great voice and expertly backed by LA session giants such as Glen Campbell and The Champs, and generating hits in ‘Bird Doggin” and ‘Born To Be A Rollin’ Stone’, this collection shows an amazing direction Gene’s career could have taken. Indeed, containing LA proto Country Rock of the kind that would later lead to classics by The Byrds, Gene Clark and others, this is an amazing collection.
Faced with a career that was going nowhere fast on a treadmill of gigs, booze and oldies, Gene Vincent re-grouped in 1966 and with the help of an all-star team of Southern California studio whizzes, recorded a batch of songs that stand out as some of his best work. Challenge Records assembled some top-notch session cats like Glen Campbell, Al Casey, Jim Seals, Dash Crofts and David Gates, rounded up some good songs, and let Gene loose. The songs aren’t rockabilly, though, not even a little. Instead they are solid mid-’60s fare with a folk-rock-meets-garage sound. He is in fine voice throughout, sounding tough and ready on hard rockers like “Bird Doggin’,” “Ain’t That Too Much” and “Words and Music,” sensitive on sweet ballads like “Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo,” and heartbroken and blue on desperate songs like “Hurtin’ for You Baby” and “Am I That Easy to Forget.” He shows off his country side on a rock-solid cover of Merle Haggard’s “I’m a Lonesome Fugitive,” gets loose and swinging on a boppy “Poor Man’s Prison,” and on what may be the album’s best song, the chiming folk-rocker “Love Is a Bird,” which sounds very much like Gene Clark. In fact at times the record sounds like (with some 12-string guitar added) the Byrds, but mostly the results are not too far from what the Everly Brothers were doing around the same time. Sadly, Vincent had even less commercial success than the Brothers as his Challenge singles sank without a trace and were never collected as an album in the States. In 1992 Charly rounded up the 12 songs Vincent recorded for Challenge on Am I That Easy to Forget?. While it is a good collection, Sundazed’s Ain’t That Too Much!: The Complete Challenge Sessions trumps it by having superior liner notes and a bunch of outtakes. : ~ Tim Sendra

These 12 tracks were re-released last year, in a different running order, under the title of Born to Be a Rolling Stone.

01 Hurtin’ for You Baby
02 I’m a Lonesome Fugitive
03 Born to Be a Rolling Stone
04 Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo
05 Poor Man’s Prison
06 Words and Music
07 Bird Doggin’
08 I’ve Got My Eyes on You
09 Love Is a Bird
10 Ain’t That Too Much
11 Lonely Street
12 Am I That Easy to Forget?

All Of Bob Dylan’s Non-LP Tracks; 1962-2005 (almost) – 206 Songs

Some stunning work here from the excellent nevergetoutoftheboat who has collected most of Dylan’s cast array of Non-LP tracks – garnered from the likes of singles, import albums, ‘Various Artist’ LPs, promos, radio

concerts, soundtracks, recalled releases etc etc up to around 2005!

Fucking Hell! Amazing work mate! And a million thanks for your efforts!

A Ridiculously Large Post Of Almost All Of Bob Dylan’s Non-LP Tracks (1962-2005)
206 Songs, 16 Hours Of Rare Bob
(No Bootlegs) New Additions At Bottom

Scatte
red Bob Dylan tracks from singles, import albums, various artist LPs, promos, radio

concerts, soundtracks, recalled releases… you name it (up to around 2005).

We’d been working on this project for some time, based on this ridiculously elaborate list (scroll to #647 to begin), when Neon P

ark posted his own version. Not wishing to abandon our time investment, we also pillaged his – correcting file info, adding date details, album covers and some absent tracks.

There are still a few missing (for you obsessive types – #’s 711, 713, 727, 728, 751, 801, 803, 804, 846-851, 854-863, 871 & 872), but you’ll no doubt find this nearly complete gathering satisfying – grouped and organized by release date.

No bootlegs are included, it’s all officially released stuff except for Bob’s US albums, The Bootleg Series, The Wilburys and the like (don’t forget to grab Disc 3 from 2008’s Tell Tale Signs here)

.

Of course, it cant be as simple as all that … there are a few dupes, some tracks have been re-issued in strange ways, some as DVD bon

uses, some sessions are split by release dates into different sections but… you’ll get the gist. The highlights are endless; the 2005 dub version of “I And I,” a simply gorgeous 1963 live take of “Boots Of Spanish Leather,” the “mistaken” release of “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window,” and alternate versions of “Everything is Broken” & “Shelter From The Storm.”

And check out “Rocks And Gravel” (a precursor to “It Takes A Lot To Laugh…”), a full band take from the recalled promo of Bob’s acoustic Freewheelin’ LP. The wonders never cease.

Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Ray Charles – New Orleans in 1986


I can play in any damned key you want. Just get me the fuck out of here.

– Ray Charles

The Adios Lounge, has uploaded a fascinating video on YouTube of a rehearsal for a 1986 summit gathering of some of the greats of modern music, Messrs. Domino, Lewis, and Charles! Mr Ron Wood is in tow too!

His description is:

Here’s Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Ray Charles at Storyville nightclub in New Orleans in 1986. This isn’t the actual released performance, but an interview with bandleader and herder of cats, Paul Shaffer, along with priceless rehearsal footage, all of which puts the historic piano summit into context.

It can’t have been too easy for Shaffer to run that rehearsal with all those legends and those giant egos!

Here’s the rehearsal for the classic Jambalaya.

Cue drumroll ……… below, ladies and guinnessmen is a video of part of the actual live show, a classic boogie jam!

thanks 15wrathchild

Bruce Springsteen – The Wrestler


I always leave with less than I had before. You’ve seen me. Bet I can make you smile when the blood hits the floor.

– Bruce Springsteen

I’m an old broken down piece of meat and I deserve to be all alone, I just don’t want you to hate me.


Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson:
(Robert D. Siegel – writer)


This fine track – the title track from auteur Darren Aronofsky’s brilliant new film, The Wrestler – rightly won the Boss a Golden Globe last week for Best Original Song.

A brooding, powerful meditation on a flailing, failing soul, performed in a simple and pared down style, it’s another sublime Springsteen song.

We’re shocked that this fine song won actually, since in these award shows, it’s usually the worst piece of shit dirge that wins (and usually by the likes of cretins such as Celine Dion!)

This time, the representative of that ridiculous ilk – “I Thought I Lost You” by Miley Cyrus (yes, Miley fucking Cyrus! Oh, the horror!!) and Jeffrey Steele – very thankfully lost out!

Of course, the amazing Mickey Rourke also deservedly won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture for his role as Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson !

Mickey really brings the character to life and imbues him with deep complexity as well as great vulnerability. Physically too, of course, Mickey’s many hard years in his own life, and his long crazy stint as a pro boxer, have written their trails onto his face and body, as would have been the case for the character he portrays – Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson!

All we can say is thank fuck Nicolas Cage (once a very good actor but, for many years now, not so, and actually nowadays a Jonah for any movie) who was originally slated for the role, was for whatever reason gently pushed aside from the project by Aronovsky in favour of Rourke.

It’s great to see Mickey – a man who pissed his preternatural talent away for decades – back where he belongs! Hopefully the Oscar will be winging its way to him in a few weeks!

The Wrestler is a wonderful film, typically well directed by Aronofsky from a fine script by Robert D. Siegel, with Rourke’s towering performance a standout, but with great support work too from Marisa Tomei (who we’re normally not big fans of!)

Marisa sure looks good for a chick who’s just turned 44 and does some very fine gyrating work as a stripper … sorry, “Exotic Dancer” … or “Erotic Hooker” … or some phrase that means stripper!
Very convincing performance too …. not that we’d really know, not having ever been in a Strip Club (… well, not today anyway!)! Maybe Marisa tread the boards in one of the clubs during those very lean years there after the “Cousin Vinny” limelight faded many years ago!!

We’re only kidding Mr. Attorney for Maria Tomei! Only kidding!

Anyway, here’s a trailer for the film;

Bruce Springsteen and Mickey Rourke go back a long way! They first met at the Stone Pony back in the eighties and soon after became motorcycle cruising buddies in 1989 and 1990 when Springsteen was living in Los Angeles, CA.

Rourke owned a short-lived club in Los Angeles called Rubber Club, and Springsteen is known to have made two onstage appearances in that club; on 10 Mar 1989, he joined local band The Mighty Hornets for one song (CC RIDER) and, on 25 Apr 1989, he joined an unidentified local band onstage for one song – (STAND BY ME).

According to film director Darren Aronofsky, Springsteen is a huge fan of Rourke’s. He’s seen every movie of his and he was hoping for him to get back on track making movies. He was following him and he wanted to know about his projects, but the two “haven’t been in touch during Mickey’s lost years”.

Rourke sent Springsteen a letter and a copy of the movie script. In May 2008, Springsteen called him in the middle of the night and told him that he’s in touring in Europe, and said that he “don’t know if I can do this, but if I can, I’ll try something.”

Patti Scialfa, Bruce Springsteen, and Mickey Rourke at the 66th Golden Globe Awards ceremony

Springsteen was presented with his Golden Globe statuette last week by some Amazonian Indian called Sting.

In his acceptance speech, Bruce briefly talked about how the song came to life:

“All right! This is uh… the only time I’m gonna be in competition with Clint Eastwood, I know that for sure [laughs]. Felt pretty good, too! [giggles]

Anyway, Mickey called me in Ireland and he asked me for uh… some music, he told me a little bit about the character, he said some people invest themselves in their pain and they turn away from love and the things that strengthen and nurture their lives. He said this was a guy that didn’t figure… hadn’t figured that out. So I said, ‘Well, I know a couple of those guys…’

And so, the song. So… first and foremost, I’d like to thank Mickey. Without the call I wouldn’t have written the song, without his inspiration. Thank you brother, for a beautiful performance, thank you. Thank you for thinking of me!

Um… like to thank Darren and all the folks involved with the film for letting me be a small part of their picture, thank you. Uh… love to my strong and lovely wife Patti, and hello to Evan, Jess, and Sam at home. Happy birthday, Big Man Clarence Clemons!”

Springsteen wrote THE WRESTLER in Europe during the Magic Tour, sometime between late May and early July 2008. In July, he called Rourke and Aronofsky complimenting them on the movie and adding that he wrote a song for the film’s character.

Rourke and Aronofsky went to see Springsteen in concert at Giants Stadium in late July 2008. Rourke introduced his director to Springsteen who picked up his guitar and proceeded to play his new composition. “I literally got stage fright,” Aronofsky told MTV. “I never knew what stage fright was! My chin just went down, and I said in my head, ‘Oh my God, I’m freezing up in front of Bruce Springsteen.'”

Aronofsky told MTV, “Then we started talking, and then he played the song, and it was amazing. And he’s like, ‘I don’t know if it’s good yet.'” Then Springsteen offered the song for free.

The song came while the movie was at the end of its editing phase. This late addition caused the movie’s screening debut to take place at the end of the Venice Film Festival.

On THE WRESTLER, Springsteen handles guitar, piano, and vocals. Director Darren Aronofsky described it as “a wonderful acoustic piece; makes me choke up every time I hear it. [Springsteen] really captured the spirit of the film and Mickey [Rourke]’s character in the piece.”

The song, as heard over the film’s closing credits, opens and closes with a long coda, clocking at 5:25.

However, the track will be released in a 3:50 edited version on the Boss’s Working On A Dream album.

Yes, the song is included as a bonus track on the Springsteen’s excellent new LP Working On A Dream which continues on where 2007’s fine “Magic” left off.

We saw some good stuff about the Working On A Dream LP on another blog.

THE WRESTLER, the album’s third single, was officially released on 16 Dec 2008 at the iTunes Store, in advance of the film’s U.S. major cities openings in the subsequent days. This is the album version with the edited opening and closing codas.

The song was also released, but in its unedited form, on a US-only 1-track promotional CD-R issued exclusively to Academy Award voters by film distributors Fox Searchlight Pictures for consideration in the Best Original Song category. The CD-R comes in slimline jewel case without artwork [see scan below (right)], and contains the full, unedited 5:25 version of THE WRESTLER with intact piano outro.

Like we wish for Mickey, we hope that, in a few weeks, the Boss follows up his 1993 Academy Award for “Streets of Philadelphia” with another one for this marvellous track!!

How Mickey Rourke Got Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Wrestler’ Song — For Free ‘

Mickey wrote him a very long, heartfelt letter,’ director Darren Aronofsky says of Golden Globe-winning song.

By Garth Bardsley, with reporting by Kurt Loder

www.mtv.com

Finding music for a film isn’t typically an actor’s job, but in the case of Bruce Springsteen’s theme song to “The Wrestler,” which won a Golden Globe last night for Best Original Song, the Boss has actor Mickey Rourke to thank for adding yet another trophy to his collection. In a conversation last month with Kurt Loder, Rourke and “Wrestler” director Darren Aronofsky shared how they convinced Springsteen to pen the tune — for nothing.

“Mickey knows the Boss from years ago,” Aronofsky said, “but they haven’t been in touch during Mickey’s lost years. … And Mickey wrote him a letter — a very long, heartfelt letter — and sent him the script.”

Obviously Rourke — who also won a Golden Globe last night, for Best Lead Actor in a Motion Picture Drama — was willing to put his heart and soul into making sure “The Wrestler” would succeed. In what is being considered a major comeback for the once-forgotten actor, the role is now making him a favorite for an Oscar nomination.

Apparently his letter-writing skills are quite good, too. According to Aronofsky, “The Boss called Mickey in the middle of the night and said, ‘I’m in Europe and I’m touring, and I don’t know if I can do this, but if I can, I’ll try something.’ “

About a month later, the duo went to see Springsteen in concert at Giants Stadium. After Rourke introduced his director to the Boss, Springsteen picked up his guitar and proceeded to play the now award-winning tune.

“I literally got stage fright,” Aronofsky said. “I never knew what stage fright was! My chin just went down, and I said in my head, ‘Oh my God, I’m freezing up in front of Bruce Springsteen.'”

“Then he played the song,” said Rourke. “Right,” said Aronofsky. “Then we started talking, and then he played the song, and it was amazing. And he’s like, ‘I don’t know if it’s good yet.’ “

Apparently, the Golden Globe voters thought it was! “

Anyway, he’s a normal guy,” Aronofsky said. “And then he gave us the song for free.”


Have you ever seen a one trick pony in the field so happy and free?
If you’ve ever seen a one trick pony then you’ve seen me
Have you ever seen a one-legged dog making its way down the street?
If you’ve ever seen a one-legged dog then you’ve seen me

Then you’ve seen me, I come and stand at every door
Then you’ve seen me, I always leave with less than I had before
Then you’ve seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me can you ask for anything more?

Have you ever seen a scarecrow filled with nothing but dust and wheat?
If you’ve ever seen that scarecrow then you’ve seen me
Have you ever seen a one-armed man punching at nothing but the breeze?
If you’ve ever seen a one-armed man then you’ve seen me

Then you’ve seen me, I come and stand at every door
Then you’ve seen me, I always leave with less than I had before
Then you’ve seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me can you ask for anything more?

These things that have comforted me, I drive away
This place that is my home I cannot stay
My only faith’s in the broken bones and bruises I display

Have you ever seen a one-legged man trying to dance his way free?
If you’ve ever seen a one-legged man then you’ve seen me

TTRH3.10x Bob Dylan TTRH Season 3 Repeat ‘Christmas’

Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour

Season 3 – Repeat

Christmas

Misc /mp3 192 kbps/ 82 MB/ RS

Theme Time Radio Hour – Your home for Yuletide Dreams, Xmas-Tree Themes and Santa Schemes


Well it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And for the next couple of hours, it’s going to sound like Christmas too. This is the special yuletide extravaganza edition of TTRH, chock full of Christmas themes, holiday dreams, and jingle bell schemes.


I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,

The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along

The unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way

The world revolved from night to day,

A voice, a chime,

A chant sublime

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each bleak, accursed mouth

The cannon thundered in the South,

And with the sound

The Carols drowned

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;

‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said;

‘For hate is strong,

And mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!’

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

‘God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!

The Wrong shall fail,

The Right prevail,

With peace on earth, good-will to men!’

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas ?

People all over the world forgot about Merry

Too busy fighting wars

Trying to make it to Mars

Searching for light and can’t seem to find the right star

Searching for light and can’t seem to find the right star

Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas ?

-The Staple Singers



Some people call Bob Seger the poor man’s Bruce Springsteen, but personally, I always thought Bruce was the rich man’s Bob Seger. I love ‘em both though.




I think it’s actually against the law to do a Christmas programme and not play one of Charles Brown’s songs … this is one of the best.

Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues with this episode themed on Christmas, that time for families to bicker and fight; that time for getting drunk in the morning, staying drunk all day and watching repeats of rubbish movies on TV!

Of course, being XFM, this is another repeat! Even worse, this time doubly so!! This was originally the 34th episode of Series 1 and was a special Two-Hour Episode themed on Christmas and New Year’s. It was repeated already in Season 2! Here she be again! Great work on the “recycling”, XFM!

“Mommy quick come here
Santa’s sweaty and he smells of beer”
He says “kid shut your mouth, you give me a headache”
And he’s jolly and hairy
But it’s hard to be merry
When the guys at the bar all say he looks like a fairy
But he’s doing it just for the loot
The man in the Santa suit

Fountains of Wayne


Right now we’d like to say Feliz Navidad to all of our Cuban Friends!


King Stitt was a toaster, and I don’t mean you could put bread in him…That was so good we might play it twice!



To all of our friends listening in behind bars, we know you made mistakes, we’re sorry you have to be there, but Merry Christmas to all of you, from all of us here, at Theme Time Radio Hour.


Yap, it’s another repeat! Being atheist and a tad cynical, we’re not big fans of the whole Christmas debacle! That’s why roykeanz changed his forename by deed poll to Scrooge! However, there are a lot of things we like in this show!

Lotsa literary stuff, as usual. There’s a reading by Dylan of the 1822 poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Clement Clarke Moore; as well as a reading of the 1862 poem “Christmas Bells” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Some Charlie Dickens also!

That vile cretin Oliver Cromwell rather strangely gets spoken about. Damned seventeenth century puritans! Almost as bad as all these fucking twenty-first century puritans!

Lotsa guest this week. We get Matt Groening, Steven Wright, Barry White and others.

Typically varied songs across the show, of so many various musical styles – blues, punk, ballad, jazz, rock steady, reggae, Cuban, South African, etc etc etc!

Some great blues tracks here by the likes of Hop Wilson and Sonny Boy Williamson as well as a “non-blues” track from the great bluesman Leadbelly.

Some really good numbers such as that from Gerry Mulligan & Judy Holiday, The Bellrays,Bob Dorough & Miles Davis etc.

I liked the title of this one; I Want A Casting Couch For Christmas!! We guess that Marilyn Monroe wrote the lyrics!

Of course, being Xmas, a few of the songs are turkeys! We’ll let em slide!

Bob is in rare form with the witticisms and the bad jokes! He must’ve had his snout in the Christmas punch bowl (or around the Xmas pipe!) for a few hours before recording!


If you’re spending Christmas in Jamaica, you might see Santa riding a cart and a donkey !

I don’t need to tell you anything more about Sonny Boy Williamson, we’ve played him a lot on TTRH. Here’s Sonny Boy with his hands in his baby’s dresser drawer, and you wouldn’t believe what he’s trying to find!




One of the most popular features on Theme Time Radio Hour is the double entendre – the song that says one thing and maybe means another. This one skates dangerously close to being a single entendre … Kay Martin played in a lot of hotel lounges; our paths crossed more than once when I was on the road. She’s a fine performer, always put on a good show!



By the mid-60’s Nancy Wilson was the second biggest seller on Capital Records. You know who number one was? That’s right, Glen Campbell! ….. Nah, I’m just kidding. It was the Beatles.

The Three Wise Men – Caspar, Balthazar, and Melchior. Three names you don’t hear much any more – well, except for Balthazar!

According to research, the most popular resolution in early Babylonia was to return borrowed farm equipment … I wish Harold would bring back my lawn mower.






Irving Berlin struggled with writing a Christmas song. He stayed up all night writing it. The next day he told his secretary, ‘Grab your pen, and take down this song, I just wrote the best song I’ve ever written. Hell, I just wrote the best song anybody’s ever written.’ That’s pretty confident.



We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, a pocket full of money and a cellar full of beer.

John Lennon – Oh My Love

An truly under-rated classic this, one of our favourite Lennon tracks.

It’s a beautiful, simple yet deeply resonant and powerful love song.

There is a zen-like feel to the deceptive simplicity in the lyric. All above a gorgeous pared down melody.

This comes from the Imagine album, recorded and released in 1971, and is credited to John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

However, the song was originally written and demoed years earlier in 1968 after The Beatles “White Album” sessions.

“Oh My Love” is said to have been influenced by John’s experience with Primal Therapy and communicates the joy and growth Lennon was experiencing as a result of the therapy.

George Harrison contributed guitar on this track and several other songs on Imagine.

In the vid below, John, George and Yoko are filmed at Ascott studio in June 1971 recording this great song.

Their German friend Klaus Voormann plays bass and the late Nicky Hopkins is on second piano.

Oh my love for the first time in my life

my eyes are wide open

Oh my lover for the first time in my life

my eyes can see

I see the wind, oh I see the trees

everything is clear in my heart

I see the clouds, oh I see the sky

everything is clear in our world

Oh my love for the first time in my life

my mind is wide open

Oh my lover for the first time in my life

my mind can feel
I feel sorrow, oh I feel dreams

everything is clear in my heart

everything is clear in our world

I feel life, oh I feel love

John Lennon – Oh My Love

Good visuals but poor sound!

John Lennon – Oh My Love

Better sound!

John Lennon – Rock N Roll (1975)

Image


John Lennon – Rock N Roll1975
Remastered & Bonus Tracks – 2004

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

-Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller/Ben E. King
I’m a freakin’ artist, man, not a fuckin’ racehorse!

-John Lennon (Rolling Stone 5/6/1975)

We saw a post with this fine release posted over at scarydaydreams

Rock ‘n’ Roll is a 1975 album of late 1950s and early 1960s-era rock songs covered by John Lennon. The recording of the album spanned a year and its dramatic and infamous sessions have since entered into rock music folklore. The title was actually a last-minute choice, coming from a neon sign crafted for the album cover.

In this new improved version of the album from 2004, all the tracks have been remixed and remastered, and while true to the original release, sound better than they ever have before. A few extra touches, such as a count-in on “Be Bop A Lula”, are good and the bonus tracks ain’t half bad either – particularly the fun arrangement and backing vocals on “My Baby Left Me”, and the extra spoken words on the previously unreleased outro to “Just Because”.

It may not be a perfect album, but it’s pretty damn good indeed and a must-have for fans of great music. It’ an uplifting album and the interpretations sound fresh and strong. The songs of course are stone-cold classics and the album itself is a great and warm Lennon tribute to the rock n’ roll roots that influenced him, seeped into his soul and stayed with him throughout his life.

Image

The context and background for this album were very complex indeed and rather surreal!

John was in the midst of his so called, “Lost Weekend” when he started recording golden oldies for a new album.

After splitting with Yoko Ono in the fall of 1973, and arriving in Los Angeles with May Pang, Lennon teamed up with Phil Spector to record the album, working at both A&M Records Studios and Gold Star Recording Studios. Due to the boys-club nature of the sessions, the atmosphere quickly fell into disarray with alcohol, with Lennon in very aggressive form.

Paul McCartney had decided to go to court to dissolve the Beatles partnership, which froze their assets. All of the Ex-Beatles were given allowances, and this meant that none of them could make any money on their own until the Beatles had officially broken up on paper. All of the money that the Beatles were making on solo projects was being poured into one giant Apple pot.

Image

Lawyers had begun to slice up the Apple pie, and each of the Beatles had their own lawsuits to fight. John Lennon started making the album “ROCK ‘N ROLL,” due to a lawsuit that was filed against him by Morris Levy, a renowned shyster, who owned the publishing to “You Can’t Catch Me” by Chuck Berry.

Levy claimed that John had ripped off Chuck Berry when he recorded, “Come Together.” The lawsuit was filed in 1973. John’s lawyer, “Harry Seider” was ready to fight, but Yoko didn’t want John to come back to New York, she wanted him to settle this out of court.

An agreement was reached that, in summary, Lennon would record three Chuck Berry numbers and thereby fill Levy’s coffers!

Furthermore, Lennon’s recent outings had not sold well so he felt he would return to his roots with classic Rock n Roll numbers with a view to increasing sales.

These two scenarios were the main factors leading to the recording of what became this album.

Image

The LA sessions for the album are infamous and filled with so many strange and fucked-up details, it would take a novel to do them justice. Therefore, let’s just cover the main salient points.

John went to work on the album in LA with ‘wall of sound’ uber-producer, whack-job (and now potential murder felon!) Phil Spector. The sessions at various points ranged between chaotic to insane, entailing throughout, the consumption (allegedly!) of copious amounts of cocaine, alcohol, pot etc. and entailing, at various points, Spector gunshots in the studio, fierce arguments, Lennon fights, monster celebrity parties, etc. etc.

Furthermore, Lennon was so fucked-up that not only was his voice shot but he was changing his singing style, as well as the lyrics, so much between takes that continuity and cutting together of takes was impossible. Also Spector’s style of very slowly designing the arrangements in the studio, and technically his means of recording every take with all 24 tracks wide open, meant that very little from the sessions could be salvaged.

In the end, the sessions had cost a hell of a lot of money and had yielded very little. A further surreal complication was that, for a time, Spector absconded with the masters and claimed they had been destroyed in a motorcycle crash!

Image

Eventually, the masters were returned to Lennon, but were in the most part unusable. Lennon basically re-recorded the entire thing in NYC over 9 days and the record company shipped it out pronto due to an impending similar release being made by the aforementioned Morris Levy of similar Lennon material called Roots. This was an unauthorised album recorded by Lennon and his band in Levy’s farmhouse and released on Levy’s Adam VIII label. Though it didn’t sell very well, original copies of Roots are now valuable collector’s items.

Image

The album cover for Rock n Roll is of course the famous photo of John Lennon standing in a doorway while the other Beatles walk in front of him, and are blurred as they’re walking by. Photographer Jurgen Volimer took the great shot in 1961.

The photo was a favorite of John’s, and was one of the few Beatles photos that he had hanging in his Dakota pad. He actually kept the picture hanging over his jukebox there.

The album’s working title had been Oldies but Mouldies; no official title had been chosen until Lennon saw the neon sign prepared as cover art by John Uotomo, with Lennon’s name and the words “ROCK ‘N’ ROLL” beneath. This struck Lennon in a positive way, and it became the album title.

* On the ‘Reprise’ version found on the 2005 re-issue, Lennon says “it’s all down to Goodnight Vienna, I’d like to say hi to Ringo, Paul and, George… how are you?” “All wounds are healed” said Lennon in 1974, and he was feeling sentimental toward his fellow bandmates. As he could not leave the U.S. because of immigration problems, he sent this message to them.

Bob Dylan – "Tell Ol Bill"


A great version of a wonderful Dylan track that saw official release on the superb Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8!

This is an alternative, and probably even better, version of the song that was originally released on the North Country soundtrack, some years back.

by Roinja

The river whispers in my ear
I’ve hardly a penny to my name
The heavens have never seemed so near
All of my body glows with flame
The tempest struggles in the air
And to myself alone I sing
It could sink me then and there
I can hear the echoes ring

I tried to find one smiling face
To drive the shadow from my head
I’m stranded in this nameless place
Lying restless in a heavy bed

Tell me straight out if you will
Why must you torture me within?
Why must you come down off of your high hill?
Throw my fate to the clouds and wind

Far away in a silent land
Secret thoughts are hard to bear
Remember me, you’ll understand
Emotions we can never share

You trampled on me as you passed
Left the coldest kiss upon my brow
All of my doubts and fears have gone at last
I’ve nothing more to tell you now

I walk by tranquil lakes and streams
As each new season’s dawn awaits
I lay awake at night with troubled dreams
The enemy is at the gate

Beneath the thunder blasted trees
The words are ringin’ off your tongue
The ground is hard in times like these
Stars are cold, the night is young

The rocks are bleak, the trees are bare
Iron clouds go floating by
Snowflakes fallin’ in my hair
Beneath the gray and stormy sky

The evenin’ sun is sinkin’ low
The woods are dark, the town isn’t new
Theyll drag you down, they’ll run the show
Ain’t no telling what they’ll do

Tell ol’ Bill when he comes home
Anything is worth a try
Tell him that I’m not alone
That the hour has come to do or die

All the world I would defy
Let me make it plain as day
I look at you now and I sigh
How could it be any other way?

Johnny Burnette Trio – Interview + Hound Dog live -1956



Yeah, you ain’t never caught a rabbit


The Rockabilly and Rock n’Roll pioneers give a great performance of this seminal track live on TV back in 1956.

John Joseph “Johnny” Burnette (March 25, 1934–August 14, 1964) along with his older brother Dorsey Burnette and a friend named Paul Burlison, formed the Johnny Burnette Trio, later known as The Rock and Roll Trio.

“Hound Dog” is a classic twelve-bar blues written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller and originally recorded by Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton in 1952.

Other early versions illustrate the differences among blues, country, and rock and roll in the mid 1950s. The 1956 remake by Elvis Presley is the best known version. This is the version that is #19 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

“Hound Dog” was also recorded by 5 country singers in 1953 alone, and over 26 times through 1964.

From the 1970’s onward, the song has appeared, or is heard, as a part of the soundtrack in numerous motion pictures, most notably in blockbusters such as American Graffiti, Grease, Forrest Gump, Lilo and Stitch and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

T-Bone Burnett with Joan Baez – Silver Mantis ; 16 May 1976 (Rolling Thunder Revue)

During Bob Dylan‘s famous Rolling Thunder Revue of 1976, T-Bone played ‘Silver Mantis’ at just about every show. Here is one of the best quality recordings.

T-Bone’s introduced by Dylan, who gets the name of the song wrong!

Joan Baez provides the excellent harmony vocals.

A very odd track this – later covered by Dylan acolyte Kris Kristofferson – more like the plot to a Manga story than a song by a Texas musician!

An excellent track, nonetheless!

This was originally released by Burnett’s The Alpha Band.

Seito lived in the canyon of the dragons
Sashiko lived in the valley of the moon

They met along the highway to Aomeri
where danger in the forest loomed

Sashiko dressed in silks and dreamed of heroes
She was carried in a hammock draped and veiled
Her father was a cruel and brutal warlord
who fearful kept her in a shell

Seito he was but a lowly servant
but his master knew him to be true and brave

When he happened on the scene of her abduction
he sent her captors to their graves

Seito guarded Sashiko to her palace
he had no thought of ransom to conceal
She took him in and washed his cuts and bruises
and laid him softly down to sleep

When morning came she rose to tell her father
Of the stranger who had ruined the kidnap plot
But jealous and enraged her father seized him
and chained him in the dungeon dark

Sashiko’s tears flowed like the river Edo
as she pleaded Seito’s freedom face to floor
But the warlord turned his back
and would not hear her

His mercy withered years before

When night fell she crept down into the dungeon
Two daggers hidden underneath her coat
And there they slept in death by harakiri
her father’s chains around them both

Bob Dylan – Not Dark Yet (1997)

Bob Dylan – Not Dark Yet

Shadows are falling and I’ve been here all day
It’s too hot to sleep and time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I’ve still got the scars that the sun didn’t heal
There’s not even room enough to be anywhere
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there’s been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writing what was in her mind
I just don’t see why I should even care
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well, I’ve been to London and I’ve been to gay Paree
I’ve followed the river and I got to the sea
I’ve been down on the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain’t looking for nothing in anyone’s eyes
Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

I was born here and I’ll die here against my will
I know it looks like I’m moving, but I’m standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don’t even hear a murmur of a prayer
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there.


Here’s the official vid for this classic track, from Dylan’s excellent 1997 album Time Out Of Mind.

Loadsa Great Bob Dylan Bootlegs!

Especially for the simian moron who’s been leaving inane comments about our apparent views on Bob Dylan!

Yap, we are huge admirers of Dylan’s oeuvre …. how the fuck did you notice? You must be the bastard, great-grandson of Einstein! Or something!

We make no apologies whatsoever for that!

Yet Dylan – the one living artist who stands astride all modern music, nay culture – represents but a fraction of what we post!

If you don’t like it, that’s fine! Just fuck off!

Had you an acceptable level of intelligence and some little knowledge of modern culture – specifically modern music – you would perhaps have a far far less stupid view!

But, alas no, GW Bush Junior!!

So, just stick to Bon Jovi, motherfucker!

Ahem … anyway, here are some amazing bootlegs from the one living artist who stands astride all modern music, the living God that is Mr Robert Zimmerman!!

Mr Robert Zimmerman, since you are the one and only true God, please smite moronic assholes like GW Bush Junior!! And smite the motherfuckers now!

During the freezing winter of 1962-’63, Bob Dylan made his first trip to London. BBC DJ Bob Harris tells the story of his stay, with contributions from some of the people who met him.

Bob Harris tells the fascinating story of a significant but largely unknown chapter in the life of that living god, Bob Dylan.

In 1962 the newly famous Bobster came to Britain to appear in a BBC TV play called Madhouse On Castle Street.

While he was here he stayed with that eminent British folkie, Martin Carthy, who opened Dylan’s ears to a whole new way of making music (Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright, and Bob Dylan’s Dream were heavily influenced by his exposure to traditional English folk music).

He also had the unequalled joy of living through the famously bitter winter of 1962-63, when Carthy was reduced to chopping up a piano for firewood.

I have a friend who swears blind he was at the Doors’ legendary Roundhouse gig, the Stones in Hyde Park, the Who live at Leeds and Cream’s farewell do at the Albert Hall – and maybe he was.

He’s certainly convinced himself. Memories mingle and fade – sometimes we think we’re remembering stuff when in fact it’s just the newsreels we’ve seen since. So when it comes to the visit to Britain 46 years ago of a rising but obscure American folk singer, there are bound to be differing perspectives.

“Whispering” Bob Harris narrates the story of the couple of months Bob Dylan spent in England during the long, cold winter of 1962-63. Halfway through there’s a collage of memories from various contributors: “Very youthful looking, tousled hair, slimmish … chubby little Jewish boy … like the rest of us, a bit scruffy … looked quite sophisticated … tight-jeaned, very tight–jeaned … shabby … I thought he was incredibly sexy … he was rather a lost kid … monosyllabic … a lovely, lovely smile …bohemian … very precise …” A different Dylan for everyone.

Some of the old folkies were sceptical. “He went down like a lead balloon,” says one. “He did a bad imitation of Woody Guthrie.” And Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, the king and queen of English folk, were sniffy about protest songs such as “Masters of War” because it didn’t name names.

The shiniest, least complicated memories come from a fan. Natasha Morgan had just done her O-levels, and was primed for the nascent new age – “we’d had the Cuban missile crisis, and I’d been on my first Aldermaston march”. There’s a lovely bit where she looks at some photographs of his visit that surfaced only last year. She’s at his feet, gazing up at him. “I can see that I’m gobsmacked,” she says, still gobsmacked. “My eyes are absolutely on him and I’m in awe and so thrilled. It’s so alive, how he is.”

The singer Martin Carthy, who put him up (at one point they smashed up a piano with a samurai sword for firewood), was one folkie who didn’t look down his nose. He has what appear to be the least varnished memories of Dylan. He was “an ordinary bloke”, Carthy says. “An ordinary bloke with an extraordinary talent.”

A soldier’s a man,

Why then, let a soldier drink.

He did his show under the name “The Singing Fisherman”. I should have used that name.

– Bob Dylan




They take this day so seriously, it’s the only day in the year that the bars are closed

– Bob Dylan




He went from Joe Tex to Joseph X.

– Bob Dylan

Tell me, tell me, weary soldier from the rude and stirring wars,
Was my brother in the battle where you gained those noble scars?
He was ever brave and valiant, and I know he never fled.
Was his name among the wounded or numbered with the dead?
Was my brother in the battle when the tide of war ran high?
You would know him in a thousand by his dark and flashing eye.

Tell me. tell me, weary soldier, will he never come gain,
Did he suffer ‘mid the wounded or die among the slain?

Was my brother in the battle when the noble Highland host
Were so wrongfully outnumbered on the Carolina coast?
Did he struggle for the Union ‘mid the thunder and the rain,
Till he fell among the brave on a bleak Virginia plain?
Oh, I’m sure that he was dauntless and his courage ne’er would lag
While contending for the honor of our dear and cherished flag.

Was my brother in the battle when the flag of Erin came
To the rescue of our banner and protection of our fame,
While the fleet from off the waters poured out terror and dismay
Till the bold and erring foe fell like leaves on Autumn day?
When the bugle called to battle and the cannon deeply roared,
Oh! I wish I could have seen him draw his sharp and glittering sword.

– by Stephen Foster



I don’t know why they called it the Civil War. It was hardly civil!

– Bob Dylan



He wasn’t the first Attila the Hun.

– Bob Dylan

Got your letter today
And I miss you all so much, here
I can’t wait to see you all
And I’m counting the days, dear
I still believe that there’s gold
At the end of the world
And I’ll come home
To Illinois
On the day after tomorrow

It is so hard
And it’s cold here
And I’m tired of taking orders
And I miss old Rockford town
Up by the Wisconsin border
But I miss you won’t believe
Shoveling snow and raking leaves
And my plane will touch tomorrow
On the day after tomorrow

I close my eyes
Every night
And I dream that I can hold you
They fill us full of lies
Everyone buys
About what it means to be a soldier
I still don’t know how I’m supposed to feel
About all the blood that’s been spilled
Look out on the street
Get me back home
On the day after tomorrow

You can’t deny
The other side
Don’t want to die
Any more than we do
What I’m trying to say,
Is don’t they pray
To the same God that we do?
Tell me, how does God choose?
Whose prayers does he refuse?
Who turns the wheel?
And who throws the dice
On the day after tomorrow?

Mmmmmmm…
I’m not fighting
For justice
I am not fighting
For freedom
I am fighting
For my life
And another day
In the world here
I just do what I’ve been told
You’re just the gravel on the road
And the one’s that are lucky
One’s come home
On the day after tomorrow

And the summer
It too will fade
And with it comes the winter’s frost, dear
And I know we too are made
Of all the things that we have lost here
I’ll be twenty-one today
I’ve been saving all my pay
And my plane will touch down
On the day after tomorrow
And my plane it will touch down
On the day after tomorrow

– Tom Waits



There’s a lot of abbreviations in that song


– Bob Dylan



When I was a young man I carried me pack
And I lived the free life of the rover
From the Murray’s green basin to the dusty outback
I waltzed my Matilda all over
Then in 1915 my country said: Son,
It’s time to stop rambling, there’s work to be done
So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
And they sent me away to the war

And the band played Waltzing Matilda
When the ship pulled away from the quay
And amid all the tears, flag waving and cheers
We sailed off for Gallipoli

It well I remember that terrible day
When our blood stained the sand and the water
And how in that hell they call Suvla Bay
We were butchered like lambs at the slaughter
Johnny Turk, he was ready, he primed himself well
He rained us with bullets, and he showered us with shell
And in five minutes flat, we were all blown to hell
He nearly blew us back home to Australia

And the band played Waltzing Matilda
When we stopped to bury our slain
Well we buried ours and the Turks buried theirs
Then it started all over again

Oh those that were living just tried to survive
In that mad world of blood, death and fire
And for ten weary weeks I kept myself alive
While around me the corpses piled higher
Then a big Turkish shell knocked me arse over head
And when I awoke in me hospital bed
And saw what it had done, I wished I was dead
I never knew there was worse things than dying

Oh no more I’ll go Waltzing Matilda
All around the green bush far and near
For to hump tent and pegs, a man needs both legs
No more waltzing Matilda for me

They collected the wounded, the crippled, the maimed
And they shipped us back home to Australia
The armless, the legless, the blind and the insane
Those proud wounded heroes of Suvla
And when the ship pulled into Circular Quay
I looked at the place where me legs used to be
And thank Christ there was no one there waiting for me
To grieve and to mourn and to pity

And the Band played Waltzing Matilda
When they carried us down the gangway
Oh nobody cheered, they just stood there and stared
Then they turned all their faces away

Now every April I sit on my porch
And I watch the parade pass before me
I see my old comrades, how proudly they march
Renewing their dreams of past glories
I see the old men all tired, stiff and worn
Those weary old heroes of a forgotten war
And the young people ask “What are they marching for?”
And I ask myself the same question

And the band plays Waltzing Matilda
And the old men still answer the call
But year after year, their numbers get fewer
Someday, no one will march there at all

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me?
And their ghosts may be heard as they march by the billabong

-Eric Bogle


Wilco is the name of a band.

Sun Tzu, smart fella.

Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this wonderful extended 90-minute episode on the light theme of War !

More and more people were becoming victims of photography.

– Bob Dylan

A wonderful show starting with a fantastic opening montage, instead of the normal Ellen Barkin soliloquy.

We love how they put a screaming manic Hitler after a snip of GW Bush announcing deployment of 20,000 extra troops to Iraq!!

The wide ranging matters touched upon include stuff like the liberation of Cuba and others from Spain, to the tragedy of Gallipoli, to buffalo soldiers and the Civil War, to the Kennedys – John, Robert and George! – to a mad joke about Sly Stallone, to Jerry Lee Lewis in Shakespeare, to Cold Wars, to John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin, to a nice piece on Joe Tex, to Sun Tzu and his Art of War, to celebrities fighting in wars.

And much much more!

Of course, loads of wonderful and typically eclectic music too!

From great Calaypso to R&B to jazz to country to rock n’roll to pop to rockabilly to soul … and everything in between!


You know what you don’t see anymore? Celebrities fighting in a war.

– Bob Dylan

More great songs this week.

Not least, another surreal Jerry Lee doing Shakespeare, and the track Let A Soldier Drink!

We loved the manic sounding calypso of The Horrors Of War by the wonderfully titled Atilla The Hun!

And the great Tom Waits track Day After Tomorrow, which we are ashamed to say we hadn’t heard before!

A few mawkish moments though, primarily the Buffy Saint-Marie track.

All in all though, a supremely enjoyable show!

Oddly there was no outro! Were really hoping Bob is coming back next week!


I’d forgotten all about this song. Til I heard it the other day in Walmart.

Jody Reynolds – Fire Of Love (1958)


The sun beats down, with its fiery glow, knows I won’t see my love no more.

From the late great , another classic track, Fire Of Love, from 1958.

This was his follow up to the big selling Endless Sleep, a track that sold over a million copies and reached number 5 in the Billboard Charts.

Fire Of Love, although another classic cut, was a much lesser hit than Endless Sleep and, sadly, would be the last time Jody made a dint on the charts.

We love this wonderful timeless track!

A great rock n’roll ballad more than tinged with the spirit of the Blues!

A lyric full of desire, regret, hope, love and sadness! Beautifully sung by Jody, all above a delicious rock’n roll riff.

We also notice there’s a great riff in here that seems to have been ripped off by the Doors years later in “People are Strange”!

The fire of love is burning deep
The fire of love won’t let me see

Oh my love, here this my plea
because of you, it’s burning me

The sun beats down, with its fiery glow
knows I won’t see my love no more

I’m sorry for the things I’ve done
forgive me dear, my only one.

My baby’s back, once more she’s mine,
to have and hold till the end of time.

The moon shines down from up above
it’s light to cool the fire of love

The fire of love

The fire of love




Jody Reynolds – Fire Of Love (1958)
