Stories by Martha Tilston -
Dúlamán performed by Altan -
Henry Martin performed by Bert Jansch -
How Mountain Girls Can Love by The Stanley Brothers -
Hypocrites by Jimmy Cliff -
Johnny Too Bad by The Slickers -
One 'genre' which I don't think we've covered in any depth within SDS is 'krautrock'... so here's three from my (admittedly small) collection.
Restless Skylight Transistor Child suite by Amon Duul II - (from 'Dance of the Lemmings' double LP, released March 1971. United Artists label.)
Father Cannot Yell by Can- (originally from 'Monster Movie' s/t LP. This from 'Cannibalism' double comp LP, released 1978. United Artists label)
Der Elektrolurch* by Guru Guru- (originally from 'Guru Guru' LP, this from 'Der Elektrolurch' double comp LP, released mid 1974. Brain label)
"Congratulations if you managed to get through all three in their entirety........... easy listening it ain't.
"Hi RPMers, Firstly, I hope you're all keeping safe and well. Secondly, a belated R.I.P. to Lee 'Scratch' Perry - A true innovator. Thirdly, here are some tracks I've been listening to this week..."
African Children by Aswad -
Sons And Daughters by The Decemberists -
Earthquake Driver by Counting Crows -
"Hi fellow music lovers. Enjoying you tunes as always here’s what I have enjoyed this week."
"Best wishes to everyone - keep the great stuff coming."
Seven Nights to Rock by Moon Mullican - "I have several USA albums and a few 78's by Moon - including this one on a Red Parlophone 78. I was reminded of it last night when at my Jump Jive class (hard to do with two left feet)!
Devil Woman by Marty Robbins - "I found some nice footage of Marty singing some great lyrics about a Devil Woman. Cliff decided 14 years after Marty first recorded it to do the same title, different song."
Nadine by Chuck Berry (backed by a young dude called Keith) - "Time for a bit of one of the most innovative lyricists in rock music. I like this live version even though he sacrifices the clever 3rd verse about commandeering an already full yellow cab to pursue naughty Nadine. Instead he gives us a bit of a guitar break and his famous duck walk. He also manages some great syncopation throughout and just when you think he's lost his way he gets back on track without really missing a beat. Also note how he lets the band know he's finished at the end.
"Hope everyone's well & reveled in the gorgeous sunshine we had this week.
Landslide covered by the Petersens - "The Bluegrass Waltons, so achingly wholesome. Reckon they've got a punky black sheep tucked away somewhere.."
Harvest Moon covered by Reina del Cid & pals -
Gentle On My Mind covered by Molly Tuttle & pals - "Great cover by the superbly, in-the-vein-of-Enid-Blyton named Molly Tuttle."
"Have been at Bristol University this week, so here's a musical antidote."
"Three songs from albums listened to this week..."
'Til Next Time...
