Creedence Clearwater’s last Woodstock number “Keep on Chooglin'” includes a 9-minute harmonica solo.

This song is featured on our new album, “Listen to the Music,” available now: http://bit.ly/2EA9wE8​

We are proud to share with you this Song Around The World in honor of the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary. Our friends at JamBase asked us to turn the Grateful Dead’s 1970 classic, “Ripple” into a PFC Song Around the world as part of their “Songs Of Their Own” series (http://www.jambase.com/soto.aspx​) and after many miles on planes, trains and automobiles we can finally share it with all of you!!

“Ripple” is in support of the Playing For Change Foundation’s music schools and programs for children worldwide and we need your help. Watch the video and then let’s turn that inspiration we all share into something bigger. Join the “Ripple Effect” campaign so we can all leave the world better than we found it, one heart and one song at a time. As Jerry Garcia said, “Let there be songs to fill the air…”

Special Thanks to our Supporters: The Jerry Garcia Foundation (http://www.jerrygarciafoundation.org/​), The Ripple Foundation, SeaChange (http://www.schange.com​), Michael Klein and Judi Hunt.

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.

Very sweet.

Burl Ives – The first cover of Ghost Riders In The Sky, recorded in 1949

Matthew Hubbard
Oct 6, 2010

This is the first recording of this famous song by someone other than the writer, Stan Jones working in Gene Autry’s band, who recorded it in 1948. In February 1949, Burl Ives, famous as a folk singer for years before he became an actor, recorded this. Vaughn Monroe’s big baritone and orchestra version became a number one hit a month later, but it’s great to listen to Burl sing this much simpler version, just his clear tenor voice and strumming on a single instrument, which is either a banjo or a steel stringed guitar. Years later, Ives recorded a faster and fancier version, which I don’t like nearly as much as I like this one. Over 5,000,000 views and lots of positive comments and likes. I’m very glad i put this here and gave so many people a chance to hear it. I do not own the copyright.

Clouds Roll By
(Mary James)

This summer sun is hot and I’ve given all I’ve got
I’m tired of all this work and no play
Baby, I’ve been toiling and my gypsy blood is boiling
It’s time you and I just ran away

So come on over here and put those sweet lips on my ear
Tell me all the things you’re dreaming of
And we’ll walk right out this room to a place where flowers bloom
And do all the things you do when you’re in love

CHORUS:
‘Cause everywhere I am you outta be
So come on, come along, come away with me
I’ve got a notion to lie in the ocean
We can hold hands while we face the sky
And watch the clouds roll by

There’s a story that I know about a Juliet and Romeo
But, Baby, that won’t happen to us
Because I got a beat-up car, and if that doesn’t get us far
We can always take the Greyhound bus

So don’t look at me that way, I know you want to play
And to work our lives away would be a crime
So put your arm around my waist and your face against my face
And I will dance you till the end of time

CHORUS

Very sweet and brandy new, too!

Mean Mary – Thunder Song

Mean Mary
Oct 29, 2019

THUNDER SONG
by Mary James and Jean James

I wandered far from hurt but found no place to go
Like a river in the desert, like a flower in the snow
I heard a sound from somewhere, unexplained, unreconciled
Not of earth, not of air, something more, something wild

Something longing, something lost, something wounded, something sad
Like a fool who paid the cost and lost all that she had
I heard the sound grow strange, and strong, so very strong
And it began to shift and change into a song

CHORUS:
Some were made to sigh and cry but some will look up higher
Instead of always asking why they’ll set the world on fire
Sometimes we only lose to win to find where we belong
This pain in me, this hurt will be – will be my song

I wandered far to nowhere, I left my world behind
Just so I could go where days are not unkind
But the storm tried to follow me, stronger than before
The night tried to swallow me and the wind it waged a war

Colder, colder, blows this gale, colder grows the night
But more than trails are known to fail and more than wolves can bite
More than horses break their halters, more than birds take wing
If a voice wavers or falters sometimes the heart must sing

CHORUS:
Some were made to sigh and cry but some will look up higher
Instead of always asking why they’ll set the world on fire
Sometimes we only lose to win to find where we belong
This cold, this wind, this storm has been – has been my song

Sometimes we only lose to win
To find where we belong
I had to learn to sing again
With thunder in my song

So sweet!

Mary is simply stunning.

Lyrics

I don’t wanna be a fool in love and I don’t wanna be a lovin’ fool
I don’t wanna take advantage of you and I don’t want you to take me to school
When I walk, I walk your way, it’s like I’m in a ballet and I got happy feet
Like a kid with a lollipop, I skip and I hop, ‘cause your love is kinda sweet

I wanna little more, mi amore, and I want you to want a little more of me
I wanna take you to a sun-kissed land, where I can watch you tan and sip iced-tea
I wanna kiss and kiss some more on a white sugar shore with no shoes on our feet
You can splash and crash into me in a green apple sea where everything is … sweet

Chorus:
Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush
Lovin’ you can be, sweeter than a sugar rush
Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush
Lovin’ you can be, sweeter than a sugar rush

I wanna dance with you and kiss in the rain, Don’t wanna have to rein in the kiss
When there’s a storm in paradise it can be rather nice, just trust me on this
When the clouds start looking tough, burnt marshmallow fluff, we, will not retreat
We’ll kiss and kiss till we sneeze, as smug as we please, and as cute as we are sweet

Chorus:
Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush
Lovin’ you can be, sweeter than a sugar rush
Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush

Mmmm … like candy…

Quite.

Cold ashes of an old camp fire
A scrap of cloth caught on a briar
Could these be us? Were we once here?
When did we both disappear?

I hear a voice among the trees
Maybe just the nighttime breeze
Maybe it’s the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Calling now to you and me
We must follow, can’t you see? – come with me

CHORUS:
Forget the city and its false lights
They steal your dreams, they steal your nights
Leave your troubles, your worldly goods
And run with me, run with me
to the dark woods

Footprints in a hidden cave
Mementoes time chose to save
Initials carved in the frost
How did we ever get so lost?

Can’t you see? It’s all so clear
No one else has ever been here
Except for the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Calling now to you and me
And we must follow, can’t you see? – run with me

CHORUS

In the dark we have no fear
In the woods no one can hear
Except for the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Only the wild things, here to see
Wild like you, wild like me

CHORUS

(Lyrics and music: Mary James, Jean James)

Nice and Neat!

And it seems that Mary has developed a signature sound.

This is certainly an excellent thing.

I was ever so happy to find this recording!

Old And In The Way is, to me, the best in bluegrass. And this is an hour and a half of them!

Featuring the combined talents of master musicians Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Vassar Clements, Peter Rowan and John Kahn… aided by soundman Owsley Stanley… in a search for that wonderful High Lonesome sound that for some reason just fills me with lonesome happiness. Lonesome is all I have ever known.

 

I post this every so often, on Facebook, anyway.

It is so powerful — and I most definitely relate to the message — in so many ways.

The accompanying imagery is also exceptionally well done. Assuredly on the level required for a Cash music video.

I am so glad as well that Johnny Cash, my childhood hero, turned out to be even cooler than I ever thought possible when I was a little boy.
