There is also a page on “The Games People Play” that has some great info on the song. The lyrics below are from that site:…)

“Games People Play” is a song written, composed and performed by singer/song-writer Joe South. In 1968, the song was released on Joe’s debut album: Introspect. It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1970. The song has been covered by Jerry Lee Lewis, Tesla, The Georgia Satellites, Big Tom and The Mainliners, Bill Haley and His Comets, The Tremeloes, Johnny Johnson & the Bandwagon, Ike and Tina Turner, Dreadzone, Hank Williams Jr., Inner Circle as well as others. It was also mentioned in the Brian Wilson song “Games Two Can Play” from his unreleased album Adult Child.

Noteably, in Singapore circa 1969, an instrumental version showed-up on a single by The White Crane Orchestra. The reggae band Inner Circle also released a cover version which was quite popular in Europe for a while in the mid-90s. In 2006, it was covered by Jools Holland on his album Moving Out to the Country with guest vocalist Marc Almond. The Scottish singer, Dick Gaughan, covered it on his album A Different Kind of Love Song.

Whoa–the games people play now.
Every night and every day now.
Never meanin’ what they say now.
Never sayin’ what they mean.

While they wile away the hours
in their ivory towers,
’till they’re covered-up with flowers
in the back of a black limousine.


La, da, da da, da-da da;
La, da, da da, da-da de…
talkin’ ’bout you-n-me
and the games people play–now.

Whoa we make one another cry,
break a heart then we say goodbye;
cross our hearts and we hope to die
that the other was to blame.

But neither one will ever give-in,
so we gaze at an eight-by-ten
thinkin’ ’bout the things that might have been
and it’s a dirty rotten shame.


People walkin’-up to ya,
singin’ glory hallelujah
‘n’ they’re tryin’ ta sock it to ya,
in the name of the Lord.

They’re gonna teach you how to meditate,
read your horoscope, cheat your fate.
And furthermore to Hell with hate
Come-on and get-on board.


Look-around tell me what you see.
What’s a-happenin’ to you and me?
God grant me the serenity to jus’ remember who I am.

’cause you’ve given-up your sanity
for your pride and your vanity,
turn your back on humanity;
Oh and you don’t give a da da da da da.

[Chorus x 3]

-Joe South

I loved it then… I love it even more now. Still 100% true and relevant.

I have never heard anything by the late Joe South that I didn’t like. Rest In Peace, Sir.

A brilliant singer/songwriter and guitarist, who was so terribly underrated. He did great session work, too, check the credits on Chain of Fools by Aretha.

“So Near To Nowhere” from Rough Cut by Curtis Salgado & Alan Hager.

Released: 2018. Track 2 of 13.

Six original songs imbued with the spirit of the blues’ greatest traditions and seven vibrant takes on classic tunes by Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Son House and more.  From front porch acoustic finger-picking to swaggering Chicago shuffles and dark, swampy blues, Curtis and Alan play with the joy of kids in a candy store, delighting in the rich, captivating legacy of the blues.


Curtis Salgado’s earth-shaking vocals and forceful harmonica playing have been devastating audiences around the world for over 30 years. Alan Hager’s guitar expertise has been wowing fellow musicians from his hometown of Portland, Oregon and beyond for decades. Hager has been jamming with Salgado since 2003, and joined his band full-time in 2015. “Alan is the best player in the business, unlike anybody else,” Salgado says.

Together, the two blues fans and friends took time out of their busy touring schedule to record Rough Cut, a stripped-down album featuring a potent mix of newly written, timeless originals and carefully chosen blues covers. “We did it for the love of the music,” says Salgado. “This is where our hearts are. These are deep songs that we love to play.”

With Curtis’ inspired singing and world-class harmonica playing and Alan’s spellbinding guitar, Rough Cut is the album Salgado and Hager have always wanted to make together—soulful, sparse, haunting—a blues lover’s dream come true. The music is a moving exploration of the joyful, emotionally uplifting power of passionately played and soulfully sung acoustic blues, the music Hager calls “American Classical.” “This type of music moves us the most,” says Salgado. “You believe it when you hear it.”

Wonderfully wonderful. Oh my, yes,

Dig it.

Kenny Chesney – While He Still Knows Who I Am – An Alzheimer’s Tribute

Published on Jul 1, 2012

In November 2011, my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. From that day forward, I was determined he would not forget me … or I him. Kenny Chesney’s While He Still Knows Who I Am is exactly where I am right now, unscripted. A tribute to all who are living with and dealing with Alzheimer’s disease.

Oh Lord, more tears for another beautiful song. All the same feelings. My dad… I think he was catching it but he rejected me for the last three years so I spent that time in anguish wondering why and then a broken hip took him from us. Oh God I just want to die. Maybe then I could ask him… why.



Published on Apr 12, 2017

Get “Blank Stares”, now available on iTunes:


My name is Jay Allen. I’m a country music artist and songwriter signed to Sony/ATV in Nashville, TN.

My mom has early onset Alzheimer’s, and at the age of only 52, she’s now showing signs of stage 6. It’s something that has affected my family deeply, something that we can’t escape, and it brings me to my knees most days.

I grew up in small town rural Iowa with mom(Sherry), dad(Joe), and my two baby sisters(Cassie and Amber). We didn’t have a lot, but our parents always seemed to find a way, sometimes working 2-3 jobs each to make sure we had enough. Looking back, it was a humbling childhood, but what I think affected me most was my mother’s affection and selflessness towards all of us. She always put her children first, no matter what the sacrifice. If we wanted some stupid toy for Christmas, she would work the overtime or pick up an extra shift. She didn’t care what it took, she just wanted us to be happy.

When I was in middle school, I remember asking my mom what she would change to make her life better if she could go back in time.

Her response was, “I wouldn’t change a thing. I was made to be a good mom. I live for you kids.”

Now that I’m older, I hold onto those words as I watch this horrible disease steal away a beautiful woman. Sometimes I want to yell at God when I hear her stumble through a simple sentence, or when I look at her and feel like she’s not even there anymore. It makes me so mad, and it kills me that I can’t fix it. But then there are the moments of hope, when dad brings her to visit Nashville and we dance all night at The Sutler…or when she grins and taps her foot to the live music…or when I wrap my arms around her, and she takes a deep breath and says, “I’ve missed you, Jay.”

Her words, the good memories, and the moments of joy – that’s what I hold onto.

As a songwriter and up-and-coming artist, I feel that I have an obligation to be a positive role-model, and to also give back by utilizing the gifts that God has blessed me with. In realizing the importance of this, I finally found the courage to write a song about my experience, called “Blank Stares”. My vision is that this song will raise awareness, bring hope to those affected, and most importantly, become a weapon in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

So please, download your copy of “Blank Stares” today, share, and dream with me. Music is powerful. Let’s do something with it.

With all my heart,
Jay Allen

I need to listen to this again. Maybe a couple more times. It sounded great, but I didn’t really hear it as I was crying my eyes out.

For over a decade my life was devoted to full time for my aunt who was taken by this incredibly awful disease. Incredibly awful doesn’t adequately describe how frightening it is … especially for the person who has it. I did it 24/7 and gave up working. It was for love, it taught me so much about what love is and it was I think also to give some some atonement for my disgusting neglect of my mom as a teen and early twenties self-centered asshole. Mom was taken by Multiple Sclerosis starting when I was ten years old and I cry myself to sleep every night asking her forgiveness. We had her home till we physically couldn’t and lucked out into the only good nursing home in the state for her last ten years and I hardly ever visited. I was and am a sack of shit. It’s one of the reasons I long for death … it’s simply what I deserve. She was a beautiful mommy and so devoted to us it took your breath away. She even turned me on to Forteana.

Oh God help us all.

“Right Now Is The Hour” from Something Smells Funky ‘Round Here by Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio.
Released: 2018. Track 3 of 10.

This track was also downloaded from the wonderful folks at Alligator Records, the best Indie Blues label in the world.

Elvin has been around for a long time now and I must say he never fails to deliver Big Fun. I can’t for the life of me remember any tune that wasn’t!

Elvin and his Big Fun Trio-mates (Willy Jordan on cajon and vocals, Bob Welsh on guitar and piano) serve up a fresh new helping of their good ‘n’ greasy blues and R&B, highlighted by the title track, a comic State of the Union address as only the blues and Southern Rock legend can deliver.  Album includes four additional new originals, Big Fun Trio takes on Elvin’s Right Now Is The Hour, Jackie Wilson’s (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher & Higher, Ann Peebles’ I Can’t Stand The Rain and more.  “Deceptively loose but always tight…the raspy chuckle in Bishop’s singing and the sharp sting of his guitar are forceful and fresh, enduring and fun.” Fresh Air, NPR

Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac – The Green Manalishi (With The Two Prong Crown)

Published on Oct 24, 2009

One of my favourite Fleetwood Mac songs, enjoy 🙂

Peter would vehemently disapprove of the video title of “Peter Green’s…” as he did ever since some record company suit came up with it. But, being as it will likely always stick, we shall move on.

One of my faves, too. This song came in as the move into more complex music was starting, it is meaningful … the green manalishi is money and this is about the evils of same.

Mr. Green is a good man… very philanthropic in his heart and he tried as best as he could. I wonder if he still does good stuff in his retirement?

A classic… dig it.

I have always had a soft spot for the work of Roy Orbison, the master of loneliness. But I can’t feel it all the way because in his songs, it’s always about lost love. I’ve never had any love, so I am left to use my imagination.

All the while in mental agony over never having anyone to share life with… and the horrible reactions of those the idea was proposed to. It makes me want to go off and die. Which I will most likely wind up doing — sooner than later.

I had to escape
The city was sticky and cruel
Maybe I should have called you first
But I was dying to get to you

I was dreaming while I drove the long straight road ahead, uh-huh, yeah
Could taste your sweet kisses, your arms open wide
This fever for you was just burning me up inside

Crying to get to you
Is that all right?
Crying, crept in your room
Woke you from your sleep to make love to you
Is that all right?

The above noted conditions apply even more to this one, eh. If you were to randomly glance in my direction, at any random moment of your choosing, you would have an exceptionally good chance of finding tears rolling down my cheeks.

It is my normal.

Maybe it’ll change someday, but I just know that it never, ever will.

The Blues Magoos – (We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet (1966-67)

Published on Jan 16, 2018

Perhaps one of the giants of the early psychedelic hits, for some years my only video contribution for this song until now was an old slideshow I did originally back in 2012. Finally, it has been given the sort of treatment I have done for other such rock classics. “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet,” a song by the American rock band Blues Magoos, and released in October 1966, became a chart hit in the United States in February 1967. It peaked at Billboard at #5 on February 11, 1967 and at #6 on Cash Box on February 18, 1967.

Oo the wonderfulness! Love this song… (I bet you probably guessed that, yeah?)

Hot Rod Lincoln – Commander Cody (Studio)

Published on Apr 26, 2012

Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen is an American country rock band founded in 1967. Members included founder George Frayne, John Tichy, Billy C. Farlow, Bill Kirchen, Andy Stein, Paul “Buffalo” Bruce Barlow, Lance Dickerson, and Bobby Black. The band’s style mixed country music, rockabilly, and blues, on a foundation of boogie-woogie piano. It was among the first country-rock bands to take its cues less from folk-rock and bluegrass and more from barroom country of the Ernest Tubb and Ray Price style. A pioneer in incorporating Western swing into its style, the band became legendary for marathon live shows. Wikipedia – Joint the Commencer here:…

Oh I do so love this band. They can perk up the dead, ya know?

*Rest in peace, Gary Moore… so sad of a day… your guitar stays with us, and you shall live trough it. Farewell…*

† Gary Moore was found dead in February 06 2011, while on vacation at Costa del Sol, Spain. †

– – –
Gary Moore and friends performing “Whiskey in the Jar” in the “One Night in Dublin: a Tribute to Phil Lynott” concert at The Point Theatre, Dublin, Ireland, August 20th, 2005. [Part 9/10]

This song is a real classic, and is also famous for the fierce Metallica cover.

Phillip Lynott was the bassist, lead singer, lead composer and frontman for the band Thin Lizzy, in which Moore played for some time too.

Gary Moore (was) a renowned guitar player, his style ranging from Heavy Metal and Blues to Country music.

Eric Bell: “the only guy that can play this song”.

With no further ado, enjoy this song in high quality, and see all the other parts of this historical concert in my channel.

Essa música é um verdadeiro clássico e ficou bem conhecida depois do fantástico cover do Metallica.

Philip Lynott foi o baixista, vocalista, principal compositor e “frontman” da banda Thin Lizzy, na qual Gary também chegou a tocar.

Gary Moore é um renomado guitarrista e seu estilo vai desde o Heavy Metal e o Blues até a música Country.

É DEFINITIVAMENTE um guitarrista que merece admiração, uma lenda. E pensar que eu só vim a conhecê-lo mesmo fazem algumas semanas…

Eric Bell: “o único cara que consegue tocar essa música”.

REVIEW/AMG Joe Viglione

This solo album from Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter Daniel David Kirwan has the future producer for Human League and Buzzcocks, Martin Rushent, utilizing those skills here, as well as engineering.

The sound is crystal clear, and a feather in the cap for Rushent as well as Kirwan. It starts off with an uncharacteristic “Ram Jam City,” which has more Lindsey Buckingham sounds than one would expect, especially since the two guitarists come from two different musical worlds.

“Odds and Ends” is more lighthearted, the kind of music Paul McCartney toyed with on The White Album’s “Rocky Raccoon.” What Second Chapter immediately sets forth is the importance of Kirwan as a pop artist, and how, despite Fleetwood Mac’s success after he left, his sounds could still have been beneficial to that supergroup. “Hot Summers Day” is a fine example of that, a beautiful song that could offset Buckingham’s gritty ramblings. It would have made a nice counterpoint as Stevie Nicks complemented Christine McVie’s tunes with her adventures, bringing an important change of pace to that popular band’s hits. The jacket looks like a dusty old family album-style book holding Kirwan’s Second Chapter. And the music reflects that old-world feel in titles like “Skip a Dee Doo” and “Falling in Love with You.”

Three of the best songs on this excellent outing are “Love Can Always Bring You Happiness,” “Second Chapter,” and a sleepy and beautiful number called “Silver Streams.” Kirwan’s tune is haunting as well with its lilting “all you need is love to show you the way from here” chorus. As on a follow-up album, he tends to sound a little like the group America, the vocals with that same America tone and warmth. They very well could have covered “Silver Stream” or “Cascades,” the album’s final track.

This material was crafted right in the middle of America’s run of hits, and maybe they should have replaced Dan Peek with Dan D. Kirwan? The artist’s three solo discs cut in the ’70s make for a very pleasant and thought-provoking listening experience, and that this collection is so good only shows he kicked his departure from the big band off with a vengeance.

Harrison,Dylan,Fogerty, Davis,Taj, etc. Live at the Palomino Club-BOOTLEG pt 1

Published on Aug 9, 2010

Live at the Palomino Club, North Hollywood on 19 Feb 1987. In the Spring of 1987, The Graffiti Band performed with Taj Mahal at the Palomino Club in Hollywood. At this show, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and John Fogerty rose from the audience to join Davis and Taj Mahal in an unrehearsed set which included Fogerty’s “Proud Mary” (played live for the 1st time since CCR per Bob Dylan’s request), Dylan’s “Watching the River Flow” , and other classic rock n roll including “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Peggy Sue”, “Honey Don’t”, “Matchbox”, and “Gone, Gone, Gone”. This is Part 1. Bootleg cds/VHS/DVDs exist, but no official recordings were made as this was not a formal concert, and not publicized. LINEUP: George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Mark Shark, , Bobby Tsukamoto, Gary Ray, John Fogerty Jesse Ed Davis, & Taj Mahal

but there was more available than just that clip!

Blind Connie Williams – “Take My Hand, Precious Lord”

Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 9:00pm

Blind Connie Williams, born in south Florida in 1915.

A street musician who was based in Philadelphia for most of his life, Williams could play blues standards, folk songs, and pop tunes, but preferred spirituals. Here’s his version of “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” featuring his signature bass string slapping.

I love finding folks I’ve not heard of before and Mister Williams is a great one.

He is a fine player and  great singer well-versed in the traditions of the old days … back when the music was just startin’ out, so to speak. An innovative fella, too, eh.

Savor it, brief though it may be.
