W. (Oliver Stone’s Bush Biopic) [OST] (10/2008)

W. (Oliver Stone’s Bush Biopic) [OST] (10/2008)

“I want a fair, true portrait of the man. How did Bush go from an alcoholic bum to the most powerful figure in the world? It’s like Frank Capra territory on one hand, but I’ll also cover the demons in his private life, his bouts with his dad and his conversion to Christianity, which explains a lot of where he is coming from. It includes his belief that God personally chose him to be president of the United States, and his coming into his own with the stunning, preemptive attack on Iraq. It will contain surprises for Bush supporters and his detractors.”

-Oliver Stone

Another Stone biopic, this time about the dumbest asshole this side of a troop of jungle monkeys! Or this side of Sarah Palin!

A moron whose tenure as President, amongst many other atrocities, dug America into a needless, unwinnable war for oil, and oversaw the tumbling of world economies back towards the great Depression.

Interesting soundtrack though. Artists such as Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Willie Nelson along with portions of the original score by Paul Cantelon.

W. is the new biographical film based on the life and presidency of George W. Bush. The film was produced and directed by Oliver Stone, written by Stanley Weiser, and stars Josh Brolin as Bush.

Stone compares his goal for W. to the approach of The Queen (2006) and his own Nixon (1995).

Filming began on May 12, 2008, in Louisiana with the release date being set for October 17, 2008.

The Motion Picture Association of America rated the film PG-13 in the United States for “language including sexual references, some alcohol abuse, smoking and brief disturbing war images.”

Charlie Louvin – Steps to Heaven (2008)

Charlie Louvin – Steps to Heaven (2008)

An amazing album from one of the stalwarts of folk music, of country music … of all music!

One question though … why the fuck is Bob Dylan not on here, to pay rightful tribute to an artist who has been hugely influential on him (and thousands others!)? Charlie’s over 80 now, so there won’t be to many more fucking chances!

2007 saw Louvin celebrate his 80th birthday amidst a swirl of activity around the release of his first studio album in ten years, Charlie Louvin. Grammy-nominated for Best Traditional Folk Album, the disc features George Jones, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Will Oldham, Elvis Costello and many others.

Charlie toured and recorded with Lucinda Williams, made a video for the song “Ira”, released a field recording of one of his many in-store performances, Live at Shake It Records, played over 100 concert dates sharing stages with Ryan Adams and Neko Case, appeared on giant festivals like Bonnaroo and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and placed a medallion around Emmylou Harris’ neck inducting her into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Charlie’s self-titled album earned 4 out of 5 stars in Uncut and Mojo Magazine, and sparked a bevy of great press and renewed interest in his fascinating career.

Instead of hanging back at age 80, Charlie has instead chosen to challenge himself. Steps to Heaven was recorded live with a gospel choir comprised of three sisters, journeyman gospel pianist Derrick Lee, and Chris Scruggs adding doghouse bass and electric guitar. Louvin had never recorded with black gospel musicians before, and in doing so discovered a new musical path. “I did things on the gospel record I had no idea I could do. I’d be thinking along the way, `How can I do things I’ve never done before?’ And I did it.”

Tracklisting

1. Love at Home
2. How Beautiful Heaven Must Be
3. Precious Lord, Take My Hand
4. There’s a Higher Power
5. Where We’ll Never Grow Old
6. If We Never Meet Again This Side of Heaven
7. Jest Rehearsing
8. When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder
9. I Feel Like Traveling On
10. I Am Bound for the Promised Land

Big thanks to Victory for this amazing post

Johnny Cash – Live in Amsterdam 1972

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

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

All content below tx to beehivecandy

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

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

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

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

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

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

Set list was:

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

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

https://i0.wp.com/www.junkiesfan.com/images/players/john_prine.jpg

Biography by Jason Ankeny (AMG):

An acclaimed singer/songwriter whose literate work flirted with everything from acoustic folk to rockabilly to straight-ahead country, John Prine was born October 10, 1946 in Maywood, Illinois. Raised by parents firmly rooted in their rural Kentucky background, at age 14 Prine began learning to play the guitar from his older brother while taking inspiration from his grandfather, who had played with Merle Travis. After a two-year tenure in the U.S. Army, Prine became a fixture on the Chicago folk music scene in the late 1960s, befriending another young performer named Steve Goodman.

Prine’s compositions caught the ear of Kris Kristofferson, who was instrumental in helping him win a recording contract. In 1971, he went to Memphis to record his eponymously-titled debut album; though not a commercial success, songs like “Sam Stone,” the harsh tale of a drug-addled Vietnam veteran, won critical approval. Neither 1972’s Diamonds in the Rough nor 1973’s Sweet Revenge fared any better on the charts, but Prine’s work won great renown among his fellow performers; the Everly Brothers covered his song “Paradise,” while both Bette Midler and Joan Baez offered renditions of “Hello in There.”

For 1975’s Common Sense, Prine turned to producer Steve Cropper, the highly-influential house guitarist for the Stax label; while the album’s sound shocked the folk community with its reliance on husky vocals and booming drums, it served notice that Prine was not an artist whose work could be pigeonholed, and was his only LP to reach the U.S. Top 100. Steve Goodman took over the reins for 1978’s folky Bruised Orange, but on 1979’s Pink Cadillac, Prine took another left turn, and recorded an electric rockabilly workout produced at Sun Studios by the label’s legendary founder Sam Phillips and his son Knox.

https://i0.wp.com/blogs.knoxnews.com/knx/brown/archives/JohnPrine03SMALL.jpg

Following 1980’s Storm Windows, Prine was dropped by Asylum Records, and he responded by forming his own label, Oh Boy Records, with the help of longtime manager Al Bunetta. The label’s first release was 1984’s Aimless Love, and under his own imprint Prine’s music thrived, as 1986’s country-flavored German Afternoons earned a Grammy nomination in the Contemporary Folk category. After 1988’s John Prine Live, he released 1991’s Grammy-winning The Missing Years; co-produced by Howie Epstein of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers, the album featured guest appearances from Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt and Tom Petty, and proved to be Prine’s biggest commercial success to date, selling nearly 250,000 copies. After making his film debut in 1992’s John Mellencamp-directed Falling From Grace, Prine returned in 1995 with Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings, also produced by Epstein, which earned him another Grammy nomination.

https://i2.wp.com/www.uwgb.edu/weidner/Images/John-Prine%2004.jpg

In 1998, while Prine was working on an album of male/female country duets, he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, with the cancer forming on the right side of his neck. Prine underwent surgery and radiation treatment for the cancer, and in 1999 was well enough to complete the album, which was released as In Spite Of Ourselves and featured contributions from Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, Connie Smith and more. In 2000, Prine re-recorded fifteen of his best-known songs (partly to give his voice a workout following his treatment, but primarily so Oh Boy would own recordings of his earlier hits) for an album called Souvenirs, originally issued in Germany but later released in the United States. In 2005, Prine released Fair and Square, a collection of new songs, and followed its release with a concert tour.

John Prine – 6 great Albums!

John Prine cover

John Prine (1971)

A revelation upon its release, this album is now a collection of standards: “Illegal Smile,” “Hello in There,” “Sam Stone,” “Donald and Lydia,” and, of course, “Angel from Montgomery.” Prine’s music, a mixture of folk, rock, and country, is deceptively simple, like his pointed lyrics, and his easy vocal style adds a humorous edge that makes otherwise funny jokes downright hilarious.

Side one
1. “Illegal Smile” – 3:10
2. “Spanish Pipedream” – 2:37
3. “Hello In There” – 4:29
4. “Sam Stone” – 4:14
5. “Paradise” – 3:10
6. “Pretty Good” – 3:36

Side two
1. “Your Flag Decal Won’t Get You Into Heaven Anymore” – 2:51
2. “Far From Me” – 3:38
3. “Angel From Montgomery” – 3:43
4. “Quiet Man” – 2:50
5. “Donald and Lydia” – 4:27
6. “Six O’Clock News” – 2:49
7. “Flashback Blues” – 2:33

Sweet Revenge cover

Sweet Revenge (1973)

Prine’s third album is louder and more jaded than his first efforts, a set of rowdy country-rockers that tear along at a reckless speed. Sympathy takes a back seat to cynicism here, and while that strips the record of some depth, Prine’s irreverence is consistently thrilling, making this one of his best. It’s not as uniformly brilliant as the debut, but it did steer his music in a new direction — where that record is often hallmarked for its rich sensitivity, Sweet Revenge established cynicism as Prine’s dominant voice once and for all.

Although he could still crank out a great ballad when he felt like it, from now on his records largely followed a more conventional rock & roll muse, a choice that eventually gained him more mainstream attention. “Please Don’t Bury Me,” “Christmas in Prison,” “Blue Umbrella,” and “A Good Time” are a few of the jewels on this one.

1. “Sweet Revenge”
2. “Please Don’t Bury Me”
3. “Christmas in Prison”
4. “Dear Abby”
5. “Blue Umbrella”
6. “Often is a Word I Seldom Use”
7. “Onomatopoeia”
8. “Grandpa Was a Carpenter”
9. “The Accident (Things Could Be Worse)”
10. “Mexican Home”
11. “A Good Time”
12. “Nine Pound Hammer”

Bruised Orange cover

Bruised Orange (1978)

Despite some brilliant songs, Prine’s followup albums to his stunning debut were uneven until this, his fifth, produced by his friend Steve Goodman.

Here, Prine’s always finely-tuned sense of absurdity once again collides with his ability to depict pain sympathetically for a whole album, typified by “That’s the Way That the World Goes ‘Round,” a neat statement of his philosophy, and “Sabu Visits the Twin Cities Alone,” perhaps the best depiction ever written of life on the road in the entertainment business.

1. “Fish And Whistle”
2. “There She Goes”
3. “If You Don’t Want My Love” (Prine, Phil Spector)
4. “That’s The Way That The World Goes ‘Round”
5. “Bruised Orange (Chain Of Sorrow)”
6. “Sabu Visits the Twin Cities Alone”
7. “Aw Heck”
8. “Crooked Piece of Time”
9. “Iron Ore Betty”
10. “The Hobo Song”

https://i0.wp.com/images.amazon.com/images/P/B0000005XW.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg

Pink Cadillac (1979)

John Prine went to Sam Phillips’ studio in Memphis to make his sixth album, Pink Cadillac, and got some of the Sun Records sound of 1950s rockabilly on a record produced by Phillips’ sons Knox and Jerry. (Sam produced two of the tracks himself.)

Slapback bass here, a Bo Diddley beat there, and an overall loose feel characterized music that may have been more fun to make than it is to listen to, even though it’s quite entertaining. Prine wrote only five of the ten songs, however, and even though the covers were of high calibre — notably Roly Salley’s “Killing the Blues” and Arthur Gunter’s “Baby Let’s Play House,” a song Elvis Presley did at Sun — Pink Cadillac was a good idea that went slightly awry in the execution. If Prine had had the songs as well as the studio, it would have been among his best.

1. “Chinatown”
2. “Automobile”
3. “Killing The Blues” (Roly Salley)
4. “No Name Girl” (Jack Clement, Billy Lee Riley)
5. “Saigon” (Prine, John Burns)
6. “Cold War” (Floyd Tillman)
7. “Baby Let’s Play House” (Arthur Gunter)
8. “Down By The Side Of The Road”
9. “How Lucky”
10. “Ubangi Stomp” (Charles Underwood)

German Afternoons (1986)

Another straight country set, but unlike Sweet Revenge, this is a sleepy-town stroll, featuring snappy accompaniment by the New Grass Revival.

After the terrific opening take on the Carter Family classic “Lulu Walls,” the record glides along at a gentle tempo, yielding the clever “Let’s Talk Dirty in Hawaiian” and one classic ballad, “Speed of the Sound of Loneliness,” which was cut in a superb rendition by Nanci Griffith for her Other Voices, Other Rooms project.

It also features “Linda Goes to Mars” and a re-recording of “Paradise” from Prine’s debut.

Lulu Walls
Speed Of The Sound Of Loneliness
Out Of Love
Sailin’ Around
If She Were You
Linda Goes To Mars
Let’s Talk Dirty In Hawaiian
I Just Want To Dance With You
Love, Love, Love
Bad Boy
They’ll Never Take Her Love From Me
Paradise

https://i2.wp.com/www.jpshrine.org/images/albcovers/PrineSouvenirs.jpg

Souvenirs (2000)

In the liner notes to John Prine’s 2000 album Souvenirs, he calls the songs he has recorded during his 30-year career “faithful companions.” They are indeed warm, friendly, and boldly intimate, whispering secrets to the listener — but at the same time they are growing older and smoothing their youthful edge.

In an effort to have his own master recordings of his favorite and most popular songs, Prine re-recorded 15 tracks for release in Germany (as he has always wanted to be popular in Germany), but upon hearing these re-recorded versions Oh Boy Records decided to release them in the U.S. (as Prine has always wanted to be popular there as well).

The result is an interesting mix, wherein the historical stories (”Grandpa Was a Carpenter,” “The Late John Garfield Blues”) and rocking chair reminiscences (”Angel From Montgomery”) are recalled with a genuine wisdom of the years, but the songs tinged with Prine’s signature cynical smirk (”People Puttin’ People Down,” “Please Don’t Bury Me”) have lost some of their cheeky, finger-pointing optimism and almost sound like grumbling.

1. “Souvenirs”
2. “Fish and Whistle”
3. “Far from Me”
4. “Angel from Montgomery”
5. “Donald and Lydia”
6. “Christmas in Prison”
7. “Storm Windows”
8. “Grandpa Was a Carpenter”
9. “Late John Garfield Blues”
10. “Blue Umbrella”
11. “Six O’Clock News”
12. “People Puttin’ People Down”
13. “Sam Stone”
14. “Please Don’t Bury Me”
15. “Hello in There”

Halcion Daze: Music To Soothe The ’60s Housewife


Halcion Daze: Music To Soothe The ’60s Housewife
Various Artists
Mp3 / Mediafire

A wonderful collection compiled by the excellent plagueofangels who writes about it thusly;

Just to review… This all started, innocently enough, with:

“… a DORIS DAY song should always be followed by a DEAN MARTIN song which should always be followed by a ROSEMARY CLOONEY song. LOUIS PRIMA… PATTI PAGE… BOBBY DARIN… CONNIE FRANCIS… NAT KING COLE… DINAH WASHINGTON… and so on….”

And this is where it ends. I managed to get just about everybody in (sorry, Louis Prima; “Jump, Jive an’ Wail” just missed the cut), though not necessarily in the originally intended order. This took more hours than I care to count to compile. I hope you’ll find it a worthwhile diversion from our usual fare ….

Left-click [HERE] to download the vintage ditties. (’60s-styled cocktails & Quaaludes optional.)

Fritz says “The ones that are inspired by are two that are sung in the film (Neal sings “Three Coins In A Fountain” on the bus and Neal and Del both sing “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” when they get pulled over by Mike McKean) and I could not, for the life of me, find “Everytime You Go Away” by Blue Room, so I added the version by Paul Young instead (because the Blue Room version soundS virtually identical).”

Planes, Trains and Automobiles OST (1987)

Planes, Trains and Automobiles OST

MP3 / various bitrates

Released; 1987


Genre; Rock and Roll / Country / Pop

Length; 34:32

Label; MCA

Six bucks and my right nut says we’re not landing in Chicago.



There seems to have been two separate soundtracks released for this movie;

  • the “songs only” soundtrack (i.e. this one!) and
  • the Ira Newborn score / soundtrack (which we’ve posted HERE! )

OK. Let’s come out and say that the reason we dug out this OST was, of course, the rather strange fact that our favourite Irish band ever, THE STARS OF HEAVEN, although as obscure to the music masses as a braincell in GW Bush’s skull, appear on the soundtrack to this big-budget Hollywood film!

How the fuck did that happen, you may well ask! I haven’t a fucking clue, but I’m glad it did!


I’ve written about THE STARS OF HEAVEN – a band decades ahead of their time and who pioneered the alt-country genre – in the most glowing manner a few times before and posted some of their MAGNIFICENT albums. Check em out Here!

Here, the boys do a good cover of “Wheels”, a song by one of their heroes, Gram Parsons.

I guess this is probably a good time as any to tell you this. Our tickets are only good to St. Louis. St. Louis to Chi-town is booked tighter than Tom Thumb’s ass.
Aside from the Stars, the OST is very eclectic and has some other wonderful moments with renowned great artists such as Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris, as well as cult bands such as The Dream Academy.

A couple of tracks though could have been better chosen especially the dire Silicon Teens!

https://i2.wp.com/img2.timeinc.net/ew/dynamic/imgs/041118/163031__planes_l.jpgThe soundtrack features a mix of rock and roll, country and pop. The frenetic musical score by Ira Newborn, makes extensive use of the folk song Red River Valley, including a souped up version of the song, Red River Rock, performed by British group Silicon Teens.

Among other tracks is a cover version of “Back in Baby’s Arms”, used during the scene when Steve Martin’s and John Candy’s characters wake up embracing each other in the morning. The song, popularized by Patsy Cline, is performed by Emmylou Harris.

The soundtrack album was released in 1987, but has since gone out of print.

Her first baby came out sideways. She didn’t scream or nothin.

Songs featured in the film but not included on the soundtrack album include “(Meet) The Flintstones” (sung on the bus) and “Three Coins in the Fountain” (which Steve Martin’s character tries to sing on the bus) and “Mess Around” by Ray Charles, the song John Candy’s character is listening to when he plays “air instruments” while driving; swerving and puffing cigarettes, while Steve Martin’s character sleeps.

An additional track by Steve Earle, “Continental Trailways Blues”, was composed for the film, but was not included on the soundtrack album. The song is included on the 1996 compilation, Ain’t Ever Satisfied: The Steve Earle Collection. Not included in the soundtrack is the song Everytime You Go Away performed by Blue Room at the end of the film.

Neal: Del, why did you kiss my ear?

Del: Why are you holding my hand?

Neal: Where’s your other hand?

Del: Between two pillows …

Neal: Those aren’t pillows!

The movie itself is excellent too, replete with loads of classic comic moments. Far better than one would expect from writer / director John Hughes – who here avoids sappy sentimentality and teenagers in favour of a adult oriented intelligent comedy ! – and star Steve Martin, who believe it or not, was still funny then! There’s the classic scene where Martin unleashes a tirade, littered with ‘fucks” at a car rental agent … You can start by wiping that fucking dumb-ass smile off your rosey, fucking, cheeks … etc!

Of course, we always liked the comic acting of the late great John Candy.

We’ve posted a DVD rip of the movie too … grab it HERE!

The Patsy Cline Collection (4 CD Box Set) @ 320

The Patsy Cline Collection
4 CD Box Set
Mp3 @ 320

A veritable treasure trove of great Patsy music!

Some stone cold classics in here!

They sure don’t make em like PC anymore!

Here the Country Music Foundation offers 104 songs – more than four hours of music! – even though Patsy Cline died at 30 after less than a decade of recording.

Given the wavering quality of her later string-laden work, four CDs might be excessive, but this set comprehensively follows Cline from upstart country boomer to pop diva.

She could take charge of a song from day one, as the two 1954 radio transcriptions prove. On her vibrant late-1950s work, she moves from honky-tonk and rockabilly to soft ballads in commanding fashion. “Walkin After Midnight,” her first hit, features Don Helms’s gentle steel guitar while her vocals blend raw power with emotional vulnerability.

By 1957, vocal groups had entered into the mix, and in 1961, hits such as “I Fall to Pieces,” “She’s Got You,” and Willie Nelson’s “Crazy” brought her pop stardom.

Woody Guthrie – Danville Girl

“I bid that girl adieu, poor boys.”

A recording by Woody Guthrie, with Cisco Houston, of his version of the trad classic Danville Girl.

This comes all the way from April 19th, 1944!

We’ve already written about Woody acolyte Bob Dylan’s famous Danville Girl / Brownsville Girl HERE

I went down to the railroad yard, Watch the train come by
Knew that train would roll that day But I did not know what time.

I did not know what time, boys, did not know what time,
Knew the train would roll that day but I did not know what time.
Good morning, Mister railroad man, what time does your train roll by?

Nine sixteen and two forty four, twenty five minutes ‘til five.
At nine sixteen, two forty four, twenty five minutes ‘til five.
Thank you, Mister railroad man, I wanna watch your train roll by.

Standing on the platform, smoking a big cigar,
Waitin’ for some old freight train that carries an empty car.

I rode her down to Danville town, got stuck on a Danville girl,
Bet your life she was a pearl, she wore that Danville curl.

She wore her hat on the back of her head like high tone people all do,
Very next train come down that track, I bid that gal adieu.

I bid that gal adieu, poor boys, I bid that gal adieu,
The very next train come down that track, I bid that gal adieu.

Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis: Two Men With The Blues


Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis: Two Men With The Blues
Mp3 @ 192kbs
# Original Release Date: July 8, 2008
# Label: Blue Note Records
# ASIN: B0016NF06O

Two giants of very different musical genres here combine in a fascinating work!

This Blue Note release documents the boys’ special performances on January 12 and 13, 2007 at Jazz at the Lincoln Center, where they tackle some classic blues and jazz numbers.

The collaboration apparently came about when Natalie Cole had to cancel a series of shows with Wynton’s band at the last minute and somehow Willie stepped into the breach.

An album for real fans of music! Willie meets N’yorlans!

No, Willie doesn’t try to pay the trumpet! Neither does Wynton start crooning “You were always on my mind”!

Here’s some info on the project;

NowThe event was simply billed as “Willie Nelson Sings the Blues,” but the historic two-night stand on January 12 and 13, 2007 at Jazz at Lincoln Center was far more than that. Call it a summit meeting between two American icons, Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis, two of the most significant figures in modern-day country and jazz, who discovered common ground in their love for jazz standards and the blues.

Their performance stirred the sounds of New Orleans, Nashville, Austin and New York City into a brilliantly programmed mix that was equal parts down-home and cosmopolitan, with plenty of swing and just a touch of melancholy.

To say that these shows were a hot ticket would be an understatement!

Luckily, the tapes were rolling and the results of this unique collaboration now constitute the Blue Note album Two Men With The Blues for everyone who couldn’t cram into The Allen Room. Featuring great playing from one of the hottest bands around these classic tracks are given new life by the extraordinary dual talents of Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis.

At a time when most people are thinking of retirement, Willie has never been busier. His profile has been high in recent weeks with his various career retrospective releases and sold out tour and this album can rightly stake it’s place alongside anything else he has done.

Wynton rarely sounds so relaxed and both of these musical giants are clearly having the time of their lives together on these new interpretations of some of the greatest songs of the 20th century.

A video excerpt from the show of Willie and Wynton playing a live version of the Hogey Charmichael classic Stardust.

Everyone knew that this summit of master musicians would be special. The session was recently broadcast on National Public Radio’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, and as we already have an Amazon video excerpt of the event, we can expect to see the entire meeting on PBS, with DVD as pledge gift.

The CD, however, has had the opportunity for further electronic mixing and improvements by Delfeayo Marsalis and Jeff Jones.

So what can we say about the quality of the music and the personalities? How many superlatives are there? But you first must be a Willie Nelson fan and you must be a jazz enthusiast who honors Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Jazz folk for their precision and urban sophisticated development of New Orleans roots.

Thus if you are among that very large number of music lovers, you must own this recording. Even the insert notes and photos are nicely done.

As for the selections, we have Nelson’s own oft recorded theme song, Georgia on My Mind, and we also have Stardust, which was included in the album of the same title that demonstrated that Nelson was more than a country singer; indeed that album is his all-time best seller. I, however, enjoyed Rainy Day Blues and the other tunes that follow, which are what the album is supposed to be about: the blues.

This album is simply fun. You will love it.

Emmylou Harris – All I Intended To Be (2008)

Emmylou Harris – All I Intended To Be (2008)
Genre: Country | MP3 192 kbps | 77 MB | 56 min.

Her first solo recording since 2003’s Stumble Into Grace, Emmylou Harris’s All I Intended To Be follows on the heels of the vocalist’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

It’s a fitting coincidence, as the album presents Harris not only in her less-appreciated mode as a songwriter but interpreting classic country songs alongside Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, and Buddy Miller.

On her second Nonesuch disc, Emmylou Harris assembles an extraordinary cast of veteran musicians and fellow singers, all of them longtime friends, for a set that indeed showcases this Nashville icon, and 2008 CMA Hall of Fame inductee, as all she has intended to be – a singularly expressive vocalist, a brilliant interpreter of other people’s songs, a graceful and confident songwriter.

In particular, the album displays Harris’s ability to bring new life to songs that may have been overlooked, forgotten or lost along the way. Some of the most affecting material here may be the least well-known – though not for long: John Wesley Routh’s celtic/country “Shores Of White Sands” and trucker-poet Michael Germino’s heartrending story-song, “Broken Man’s Lament.”

Harris has chosen these songs with conceptual care. Like much of the gently uplifting All I Intended To Be, the stories may be bittersweet, the characters may be downtrodden, but somehow a sense of redemption always vanquishes regret. The shared history of all the artists involved deepens the feeling of hard-won wisdom that informs All I Intended To Be. Producer Brian Ahern was behind the boards for such early Harris classics as Elite Hotel, Pieces of the Sky and Blue Kentucky Girl.

The players and guest stars are not only a veritable who’s-who from the worlds of country, bluegrass and folk, but they have each intersected with Harris throughout her four-decade career as a recording artist. They include Dolly Parton, singers Pam Rose and Maryann Kennedy, dobro player (and longtime Seldom Scene member) Mike Auldredge, keyboardists Glenn D. Hardin (of Harris’s Hot Band and Elvis Presley’s legendary TCB combo) and Bill Payne (of Little Feat). Two songs – the June Carter tribute, “How She Could Sing The Wildwood Flower” and the breathtakingly beautiful “Sailing Round the Room” – were co-written by and performed with Kate and Anna McGarrigle. Singer-songwriter Karen Brooks, whose own eighties-era version of “Shores of White Sands” was the inspiration and thematic jumping-off point for this entire album, contributes backing vocals throughout; Randy Sharp, Brooks’ singing partner, did the vocal arranging. (Harris won a 2005 Best Country Vocal Performance Grammy for her rendition of Sharp’s “The Connection.”)

Harris’s own songs, like the heartache ballad “Gold” and the elegiac “Not Enough,” blend seamlessly with work by Patty Griffin (“Moon Song”), Merle Haggard (“Kern River”) and Billy Joe Shaver (“Old Five and Dimers,” from which the album title is taken). Harris revives what is arguably Tracy Chapman’s most eloquent song, “Fast Car” notwithstanding – “All That You Have Is Your Soul,” a cautionary tale with a simple but profound prayer of a chorus. Displaying the maturity, elegance and ease that distinguished All The Road Running, her best-selling 2006 collaboration with Mark Knopfler.

Harris has created a riveting emotional and spiritual journey. All That I Intended To Be is everything a listener and fan could hope for.

– Amazon

All I Intended To Be counts as Emmylou Harris’ first solo album in five years. Recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Emmylou recorded these songs over a four-year span in Nashville. Emmylou Harris serves as a beacon of light in the music world. Discovered by Gram Parsons in the early 70s, Harris’ work throughout her career deemed her a twelve-time Grammy winner.

Emmylou wrote or co-wrote 5 of these songs. She always enjoyed covering other writers’ songs. She recently spoke about the song selection for All I Intended To Be: “I’ve always seen myself as a relentless song-finder, a singer of other people’s work whom I admire greatly, and an occasional songwriter.”

Emmylou’s voice serves as a medicinal tonic to any wounded soul. All I Intended To Be proves a laid-back collection of 13 songs. Jack Wesley Routh’s “Shores of White Sand” sounds like a modern-day cowboy song heard out on some lonesome salt flat. Jud Johnstone’s “Hold On” transmits a soothing tribute to all farming families in a voice that can calm the most feverish soul. The lush, warm instrumentation on these songs gives a continuous mood to these compositions.

Emmylou renders Patty Griffin’s “Moon Song” in a way that blurs distinction between songwriter and singer. Her cover of Mark Germino’s “Broken Man’s Lament” somehow harkens the ghost of Townes Van Zandt.
Harris penned the song “Gold”, a melancholy tune that balances between a Grand Ol’ Opry hymn and a psalm out of the Carter Family songbook. “How She Could Sing the Wildwood Flower”-a song Emmylou wrote with Kate and Anna McGarrigle—stands as a sad song about an orphan girl. Most musicians these days never even cover a song with this much soul, much less possess the capacity to write such material.
Emmylou’s own “Take That Ride” resembles a Daniel Lanois production. Billy Joe Shaver’s “Old Five and Dimers” proves one of the best songs on the album, but Emmylou’s voice still commands as the main instrument. Her ability to transform a song into gold just by her talents indicates why Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and other luminaries commissioned Emmylou to work with them. Merle Haggard’s “Kern River” tells a story of someone who will not swim because this river claimed the life of their best friend; enduring…permanent messages burn as the cohesive thread on these songs.

“Not Enough”, another new Emmylou tune continues a somber parade in a classic mosaic presentation of songs. “Beyond the Great Divide” ends this quiet CD. All I Intend To Be writes Emmylou Harris’ name in the eternal book of soulful messengers.

The Mother Truckers are a kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll country band from Austin, Texas.

Husband and wife Josh Zee and Teal Collins make up the singing and songwriting nucleus of the band, and their chemistry plays out in their seamless harmonies, enviable voices, irreverent lyrics, masterful musicianship and energetic onstage partnership.

Their music is high-octane Americana, blending hard-hitting electric guitars with soaring vocals and irreverent lyrics. They take the Texas mix of Country, Blues and Rock to a higher place with their creative songwriting and high energy live performances.

The core of the group is the singing songwriting team of Josh Zee and Teal Collins.

Josh Zee (vocals/lead guitar) has recorded 2 major label records on the SONY/Work label as the singer/guitarist and songwriter for the Rock group “Protein”. He toured extensively throughout the U.S. on “The Warped Tour”. They also toured Europe and Japan as part of MTV Asia Summer Fest.

Teal Collins (vocals/ukulele/guitar) had an early introduction to music through her dad, famous Jazz disc jockey Al, “Jazzbeaux” Collins. Teal has recorded sessions for Grammy award winning producers Narada Michael Walden (Whitney Houston) and Stephen Bray (Madonna). Teal has received Gold and Platinum albums for her work on Shanice (Motown records) and Third Eye Blind’s album Blue.

Josh and Teal met at an open mic night years ago. In 2002 they both decided to focus their energies on what would become The Mother Truckers.

Their first CD was the self-released “Something Worth Dying For“. In 2007 they released “Broke, Not Broken” (Funzalo Records). The album was met with critical acclaim and received airplay nationwide. The Austin American Statesman’s Michael Corcoran placed the album on his top 10 list as did the Village Voice’s Chuck Eddy. Austin’s beloved KGSR deemed it #57 out of the top 107 albums of the year beating out the likes of the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen! At SXSW The Austin Music Awards named The mother Truckers “Best Roots Rock Band Of The Year”.

2008 sees The Mother Truckers rocking even harder with the June release “Let’s All Go to Bed”. Here, Josh reunites with “Protein” drummer Dan Thompson and rounding out the sound is Austin music scene veteran Danny G on the Bass.

The Mother Truckers have been touring steadily and playing summer festivals like Willie Nelson’s 4th of July picnic, High Sierra and Bumbershoot, and have opened for such acts as Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Hank Williams 3, Robert Earl Keen and the Supersuckers to name a few.

I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry – Hank Williams Live Performance


A rare recording of Hank Williams, with the Drifting Cowboys, on live radio – on the Mothers Best Flour Show – from 1951!


A great rendition of this classic!

The greatest country song ever written? Yap!


Hear the lonesome whiperwill

He sounds too blue to fly

The midnight train is whining low

I’m so lonesome I could cry

I’ve never seen a night so long

When time goes crawling by

The moon just went behind a cloud

To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep

When leaves begin to die

That means he’s lost the will to live

I’m so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star

Lights up a purple sky

And as I wonder where you are

I’m so lonesome I could cry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cash died in 2003, aged 71.

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