9:03am annie:GM BB!! 9:04am guy mauve:A gracious good morning from Toronto to Bob and all the other Brainiacs. 9:05am Jeff:I was at the James Brown tribute last night in Newark. Sharon Jones was scheduled to appear. Instead, we heard the news that she died.
There was not a dry eye in the house
9:12am tadpoles:We're all Young Man's Blues Bob. It brings a tear. 9:12am doctorjazz:Speaking of dry eyes, this is a really sad set... 9:15am Mike East:Sharon Jones died?! Come on! 9:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:I wonder who in the yARdbiRds camp chose 'I'm Not Talkin''?
So - you've not only got these definitive Rawkers covering Mose Allison - translating his distinctive laidback understated style into unbridled Heavy Rawk - but definitive tracks for us leetle 20thCentury Rawkists growing up:
yARdies here, Blue Cheer's 'Parchment Farm', The Who's 'Young Man Blues'...
9:24am WilliamfromDumont:Mornin' all. I hadn't heard of Bob Cranshaw's death. 9:27am Fredericks:What a wonderful set. 9:27am Jeff:First time I saw Mose Allison was in '73 at Philharmonic Hall (Avery Fisher):
9:29am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:So I suppose Mose's prominent relation to Blues made him a natural pick for the Rawkers - & as the form expanded to accommodate them as Instrumentalists, him being Jazz was a good fit too... 9:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:...& into the Dylan age the Lyrics were a bonus... 9:32am Mike East:Actually avery fisher is david geffen now... 9:32am DonJuanTijuana:RIP Billy 9:47am Hughie Considine:How sublime is "Paintbox"? Have always been in the thrall of this one since the early days listening in Mom and Dad's basement. Been awhile, too. Keep tuning in to your inner jukebox, Bob. 9:49am phat:hitting the spot this morning Bob. Thank you. 9:50am WilliamfromDumont:The price tag on that Floyd box is ill. 9:50am tadpoles:Bowie does a great version of "America". 9:56am steve kos:Yes also has a great version (of America). 9:58am Hughie Considine:As do The Nice, a band I'm pretty sure Bob has played. 10:01am tadpoles:The Nice's "America" was Leonard Bernstein's from West Side Story...not S&G's 10:03am Hughie Considine:doh! 10:04am tadpoles:It happens to us all Hughie. Nice to see a Nice fan! 10:04am Stuart Rose:Kos, I agree about Yes. Nice and Proggy but faithful to the integrity of the song.
Bowie did America. I've go to check that out.
10:07am melinda:I love America. 10:08am Hughie Considine:thanks, Tad. I too dig Yes's "America" quite a bit -- actually love the whole Time & a Word period. Not a fan of the Doors' "L'America," though. 10:12am WilliamfromDumont:Didn't America cover America? 10:14am tadpoles:Us immigrants....we've all come to look for America...
10:16am Hughie Considine:They did. I guess it was inevitable. 10:27am Stuart Rose:Hugh, i feel the same way. Jim Morrison's whole poet/prophet shtick hasn't aged well. 10:37am Hughie Considine:Too true, Stu. Seems it's tempting to go for bombast when writing songs about America, a la Neil Diamond's "Coming to America" and of course, "America, F Yeah." 10:38am melinda:I'd forgotten about Neil Diamond's America song. Quite a contrast to the S&G America. 10:38am jamesie:Gravy Waltz - uniquely American, optimistic and confident. Always inspiring. x love to ya and fmu! 10:39am melinda:Gravy Waltz sounds kind of sad and hopeful at the same time, to me. 10:46am Stuart Rose:Good point, Hugh. The topic's too big. Bring on the schmaltz and the bombast. Simon's America works so well because of all the homely details in the lyric, and the relationship it's grounded in.
L.A. Woman works for me because Morrison looks outward more than he looks inward.
11:00am Hughie Considine:Right there with you. LA was the perfect subject for the Doors, and that is for sure one of the band's best moments. Elvis Costello's "America Without Tears" is subtle and great. 11:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Thx DJ BB.
