Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell

Bob Dylan & Joni Mitchell, Austin, Texas, January 28, 1976 © Watt Casey.

bobdylan-n-jonimitchell

“Dylan showed up at the Austin concert, and he was acting really weird. He showed up onstage like a crazy person. He wandered around through the amps. He made it very apparent to the audience that he was there, but he never came forward. He just got on the stage and wandered around. We didn’t sing anything together.”—Joni Mitchell, “Reckless Daughter” David Yaffe, 2017.

“In response to minutes of clapping and stomping, Joni Mitchell at last returned to the stage, bringing a friend with her: Bob Dylan. Dylan was finally cajoled into doing a duet with Mitchell, but he only tapped his foot and played guitar while she sang “Both Sides Now” alone. Next, “Girl from the North Country,” with Dylan still maintaining silence. When, more than half-way through the song, he finally opened his mouth, anticipation was running so high that even a croak would have been greeted with cheers. He was, in fact, so hoarse (presumably from his concert in Houston on Sunday) that he could do little more than croak his way through the verse.”—Lisa Tuttle, Austin American-Statesman, January 30, 1976.

 

Patti Smith

Patti Smith, 1976, by Lynn Goldsmith.

“I don’t consider writing a quiet, closet act: I consider it a real physical act. When I’m home writing on a typewriter, I go crazy. I move like a monkey. I’ve wet myself. I’ve come in my pants writing….Instead of shooting smack, I masturbate – fourteen times in a row…I start seeing Aztec mountains…I see weird things. I see temples, underground temples, with the doors opening, sliding door after sliding door, Pharaoh revealed – this bound-up Pharaoh with ropes of gold. That’s how I write a lot of my poetry.”

~ Patti Smith in 1971, from Patti Smith: An Unauthorized Biography, by Victor Bockris and Roberta Bayley

Lyrics:

There is a house down in New Orleans
They call the rising sun
And it’s been the ruin of many poor girl
And me, oh God, I’m one.
My mother was a tailor
She sewed these new blue jeans
My sweetheart was a gambler, Lord
Down in New Orleans.
Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
And the only time he’s satisfied
Is when he’s on a drunk.
He fills his glasses up to the brim
And he’ll pass the cards around
And the only pleasure he gets out of life
Is rambling from town to town.
Oh tell my baby sister
Not to do what I have done
But shun that house in New Orleans
They call the rising sun.
Well it’s one foot on the platform
And the other foot on the train
I’m going back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain.
I’m going back to New Orleans
My race is almost run
I’m going back to end my life
Down in the rising sun.
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the rising sun
It’s been the ruin of many poor girl
And me, oh God, I’m one.

These are wonderful renditions of this song, covered well before the Animals recorded their fabulous version. The song itself is over 100 years old and was also covered by The Carolina Tarheels, Leadbelly and Dave Van Ronk.

From Cincinnati, Ohio, Erin Coburn performs on the Road Trip Concert Series

Rising Star Road Trip
Premiered Jul 25, 2020

Today, on the Road Trip Concert Series, we’re in Cincinnati for a live performance from Erin Coburn Music. Erin is making music that is primarily Rock, which is heavily influenced by artists like Badflower, The Black Keys, and Cage the Elephant. Having released her debut album Chaos Before Conformity in 2015, followed by her sophomore release Queen of Nothing two years later and her third record in 2019, Out From Under. Since then, Coburn’s fanbase has grown both nationally and worldwide.Writing all her own material, Erin is an accomplished songwriter, which is beautifully showcased through her three studio LP’s. Her lyrical output focuses on the theme of not fitting in: “I am my own best friend and always have been, ever since I left public high school halfway through sophomore year to go to an online high school for gifted and talented students” Erin states. Through her music, she hopes to bring together all the “misfits” around the world. In Erin’s world “misfits” is not a negative connotation it is a crown to be worn proudly. Not only is she a talented vocalist and lyricist, but Erin also plays multiple instruments, including the electric guitar, ukulele, bass and acoustic guitar. She has multiple sponsorships and endorsement including Strandberg Guitars. Presented by Empower U Motivational Business and Personal Coaching, and WINEntwine Events Ltd.

Energy Album 1969

ancientbassplayer
Jan 2, 2020

Energy was based in Montreal, Canada with Gary Ship on keys and lead vocals, Corky Laing on drums and vocals, George Gardos on bass and vocals. All of the music and lyrics were written by Corky, George and Gary (except for “Desire” which was written by Gary’s older brother Neil Ship, aka Neil Sheppard, “Who Am I But You and the Sun” which had lyric contributions from Gail Collins and “It’s My Lucky Day,” which was written by J.P. Lauzon who was the guitarist with Energy for less than a year before they became a trio). This album was the culmination of Corky, George and Gary’s 6+ year creative collaboration.

The Energy album was recorded in ‘69, produced by Felix Pappalardi and Gail Collins, but was never released because upon it’s completion, Corky was recruited to play drums with Leslie West and Felix Pappalardi in the legendary band Mountain. Energy’s music was lost and nobody could find any tapes until Corky’s house was sold recently by his ex-wife. One reel-to-reel tape was discovered by his son among the hundreds of tapes and cassettes in the attic. The reel-to-reel tape was resurrected to just barely acceptable quality, but the spirit and diversity of Energy is well represented in this video.

I had never heard of this project until just a few minutes ago.

Interesting stuff within!

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.

Bam-ba-lam. We heart this song. We also heart Wikipedia: “The origin and meaning of the lyrics are subject to debate. Historically the “Black Betty” of the title may refer to the nickname given to a number of objects: a musket, a bottle of whisky, a whip, or a penitentiary transfer wagon.”

Notable covers of this song include: Ram Jam, Tom Jones, Spiderbait… And Larkin Poe. || Don’t you wanna go down the Larkin Poe Social-Media rabbit hole?

102 y/o Dancer Sees Herself on Film for the First Time

Tenfresh
Apr 20, 2015

UPDATE: Alice passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 6th, 2016. She spent the last day of her life in good spirits, enjoying listening to music and having her mail read to her. Thank you to all the thousands of fans who sent in cards, flowers, and art. You truly gave her deep joy and meaning in the last years of her life!

Alice Barker was a chorus line dancer during the Harlem Renaissance of the the 1930s and 40s. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo, Cotton Club, The Zanzibar Club, and on Broadway—with legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson. Although she danced in numerous movies, commercials and TV shows, she had never seen any of them, and all of her photographs and memorabilia had been lost over the years.

After years of searching we found three “Soundies” Alice appeared in and were finally able to show them to her — she had never seen herself in motion in her life!

You can learn more about Alice at the little website we’ve set up for her: www.alicebarkernotbaker.com/

All of Alice’s films from this video are collected here: youtu.be/rpg5D0AAA2w

For more info about the dancers of the Harlem Renaissance, we recommend the lovely documentary “Been Rich All My Life” —several of the women in the film danced with Alice back in the day!

A little more about the who’s who here: “We” are friends of Alice who searched for the films and made this video. I’m David Shuff, a volunteer who visits the home with my therapy dog Katie, and have known Alice for 8 years. The woman in the video is Gail Campbell, a recreation therapist (and an amazing one at that!). She never gave up on finding Alice’s films, and uncovered the first piece of the puzzle that lead to us finding them — which was Alicia Thompson; a historian of black female performers who had been looking for Alice for years (her site is forclassicmovieloversonly.trip… and her YouTube channel is “MusicandDancing4Ever”). She told us that Alice was in films called ‘soundies’.

Using that clue I found jazz historian Mark Cantor of jazz-on-film.com and he was able to send us three of Alice’s soundies from his collection. Shortly afterwards Alicia got us a few more films.

This video was filmed on cellphones (and almost as an afterthought!) by my friends Darin Tatum and Tom Hunt.

This is so beautiful…

Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green, blues guitarist and singer-songwriter, dies at 73

July 25, 2020, 2:15 PM EDT / Updated July 25, 2020, 5:08 PM EDT
By Nicole Acevedo

Peter Green, co-founder of rock band Fleetwood Mac, has died at age of 73, according to a law firm acting on behalf of his family.

“It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep,” Swan Turton LLP, solicitors acting on behalf of his family, said in a statement.

The blues guitarist and singer-songwriter started the band alongside drummer Mick Fleetwood and bass guitarist John McVie in London in 1967. He left the group a few years later in 1969 after struggling with mental illness.

“For me, and every past and present member of Fleetwood Mac, losing Peter Green is monumental!” Mick Fleetwood said in a statement. “I will miss you, but rest easy your music lives on. I thank you for asking me to be your drummer all those years ago. We did good, and trail blazed one hell of a musical road for so many to enjoy.”

Green, considered by some as one of the best British blues guitarists of the 1960s, also composed hit songs like “Albatross” and “Black Magic Woman.”

Fleetwood told The Associated Press in 2017 that Green deserves most of the credit for the band’s success.

“Peter was asked why did he call the band Fleetwood Mac. He said, ‘Well, you know I thought maybe I’d move on at some point and I wanted Mick and John (McVie) to have a band.’ End of story, explaining how generous he was,” said Fleetwood, who described Green as a standout musician even in an era of great guitarists.

He was so fundamental to the band that in its early days it was called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, his band co-founder added.

Green became an influential blues rock guitarist, with Rolling Stone reporting that he’s considered one of the best 100 greatest guitarists ever.

Green also made his mark as a composer, with “Albatross,” “Oh Well” and “Black Magic Woman.”

“Oh Well”

The dreamy instrumental “Albatross” — which John Lennon said influenced his song “Sun King” on the Beatles album “Abbey Road” — reached the top of the U.K. singles chart in 1968.

Following his departure from Fleetwood Mac, Green returned for sporadic guest appearances.

He ultimately reclaimed his musical career when in 1998 he appeared in New York for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with his bandmates. He then continued to perform and tour over the years.

Divorced from Jane Samuels Green, Green is survived by their daughter, Rose Samuels-Greenbaum.

Tributes from other musicians poured forth Saturday.

“Sad to hear of Peter Green passing- one of the greats. RIP,” tweeted Geezer Butler, founding member of Black Sabbath.

Oh no, my hero, my god, has left this dimension to play in God’s own Blues band.

I am in mourning. I am so sad.

When You Wish Upon A Star – sung by Jiminy Cricket (Cliff Edwards)

This review is from: Pinocchio (Disney Gold Classic Collection) (DVD)

The one-two whammy of audience and critical indifference to “Pinocchio” and “Fantasia” killed Walt Disney’s desire to experiment with the limits of animation in the 1940s. From then on, play it safe was his motto. This may be one of the greatest tragedies to beset popular American culture in the 20th century; despite the depths of pretension and kitch in “Fantasia,” it was at least evidence of a spirited mind in pursuit of the unattained — but “Pinocchio” must have broken old Walt’s heart. There are visual effects in this movie that remained unchallenged until the digital age, and it’s worth recalling that every single one of them was drawn by hand. It has one of the most beautiful and exciting musical scores in the history of the movies (I can’t hear Cliff Edwards’ high, pure falsetto holding that final note of “When You Wish Upon a Star” without chills), a deeply plangent sense of emotion that never tips over into bathos, and a wealth of detail that is still staggering after 65 years. But it may be too dark a movie to attain the popularity of more cheerful Disney cartoons like “Snow White” — although even that one can frighten the tots.

“When You Wish upon a Star” is a song written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington for Walt Disney’s 1940 adaptation of Pinocchio. The original version of the song was sung by Cliff Edwards in the character of Jiminy Cricket and is heard over the opening credits and again in the final scene of the film. The song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song that year and has since become an icon of The Walt Disney Company. The American Film Institute ranked “When You Wish Upon A Star” seventh in their 100 Greatest Songs in Film History, the highest ranked Disney animated film song, and also one of only four Disney animated film songs to appear on the list, the others being “Some Day My Prince Will Come” from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs peaked at nineteenth, “Beauty and the Beast” from Beauty and the Beast peaked at #62, and “Hakuna Matata” from The Lion King, which peaked at #99. The song reached the top five in Billboard’s Record Buying Guide, a predecessor of the retail sales chart. Popular versions included Glenn Miller, Guy Lombardo, Horace Heidt and of course, Cliff Edwards. In Japan, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark, the song has become a Christmas song, often referring to the Star of Bethlehem. The Swedish language version is called Ser du stjärnan i det blå, roughly translated: “do you see the star in the blue(sky)”, and the Danish title is “Når du ser et stjerneskud”, which roughly translates as “When you see a shooting star”. In Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway the song is played on television every Christmas Eve’s day in the traditional Disney one-hour christmas cabaret, and the gathering of the entire family for the watching of this, is considered major Scandinavian tradition. In 2005, Julie Andrews selected the original Cliff Edwards recording for the album Julie Andrews Selects Her Favorite Disney Songs. The song has — along with Mickey Mouse — become an icon of The Walt Disney Company. In the 1950s and 60s, Walt Disney used the song in the opening sequences of Walt Disney anthology television series. It has also been used in multiple versions of Walt Disney Pictures’ opening logos — including the present-day logo — since the 1980s. The ships of the Disney Cruise Line use the first seven notes of the song’s melody as their horn signals. Additionally, many productions at Disney theme parks — particularly fireworks shows and parades — employ the song.

Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to perform in Hollywood’s most popular nightclub, The Mocambo, because of her race & body size. Marilyn Monroe, who was a big fan, called the owner and explained that if he booked Ella, she would be there every night, which guaranteed huge press coverage. He booked Ella and Marilyn was there, front table, every single night as promised. Ella said, “After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman, a little ahead of her time, and she didn’t even know it.”
