Bob Dylan - "Blood In My Eyes"

                                foto © Ana María Vélez Wood

In 1993, Bob Dylan released his twenty-ninth studio album, World Gone Wrong, a solo acoustic album of blues and folk classics. Watch the official music video of 'Blood In My Eyes' now



.BLOOD IN MY EYES is one of two songs done by the Mississippi Sheiks, a little known de facto group whom in their former glory must've been something to behold. rebellion against routine seems to be their strong theme. all their songs are raw to the bone & are faultlessly made for these modern times (the New Dark Ages) nothing effete about the Mississippi Sheiks. (From World Gone Wrong Liner notes by Bob Dylan)



"Blood In My Eyes"


Woke up this morning, feeling blue
Seen a good looking girl, can I make love with you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

I went back home, put on my tie
Gonna get that girl that money will buy
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

She looked at me, begin to smile
Said, "Hey, hey, man, can't you wait a little while ?"
No, no babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
No, no babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

No, no, ma'am, I can't wait
You got my money, now you're trying to break this date
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

I'll tell you something, tell you the facts
You don't want to give my money back
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do.

Veel grote artiesten werken belangenloos aan deze concerten mee ,in soms verrassende samenstellingen . Wat mij betreft is dit ook weer een van die hoogtepunten.

Concert at Knebworth House

Op het terrein van Knebworth House nabij het dorp Knebworth worden sinds 1974 grote pop concerten georganiseerd. Het eerste concert was The Allman Brothers Band ,later gevold door grote namen Pink Floyd (1975, 1990), The Rolling Stones (1976), Lynyrd Skynyrd (1976), Genesis (1978, 1990, 1992), Frank Zappa (1978), Led Zeppelin (1979), Mike Oldfield (1980), The Beach Boys (1980), Cliff Richard (1983, 1990), Deep Purple (1985), Queen (1986), Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Genesis en Dire Straits (1990), Oasis (1996) en Robbie Williams (2003)


Led Zeppelin Communication BreakDown (Knebworth 1979)

De gitaarriff is geinspereerd door Eddie Cochrans "Nervous Breakdown
Het was een een van de hoogtepunten van de Led Zeppelin optredens.Soms was het de opener,maar het was ook regelmatig de toegift.
Jimmy Page ontwikkelde de riff tijdens hun eerste toernee door Scandinavie,ze traden toen nog op onder de naam The New Yarbirds



Pink Floyd Run Like Hell (Knebworth 1990)

Dit is een van de laatste songs die Roger Waters en David Gilmour samen schreven.
Tijdens het schrijven van The Wall was er veel spanning tussen die twee , die zo hoog opliep dat Waters uit Pink Floyd stapte en Gilmour zonder hem doorging.



Genesis Old Songs Medley ( Knebworth 1990)

Leuk zo,n medley uit mijn favoriete Genesis periode,maar zonder Peter Gabriel ontbreekt toch de magie.



Lynyrd Skynyrd Freebird (Knebworth 1976)

De band,s platenmaatschapij wilde dit nummer niet op een album.Ze vonden het te lang zodat geen enkel radio station het zou laten horen.Ook de band had nooit gedacht dat dit nummer een hit zou worden .

Skynyrd speelde dit nummer alleen als een instrumental vanaf de tijd dat leadzanger Ronnie van Zant bij een vliegtuigongeval was omgekomen in 1977 .Broer Johnny nam zijn plaats in maar wilde dit nummer niet zingen.als de band het nummer speelde zong het publiek de tekst.



the Rolling Stones Star Star (Knebworth 1976)

Een lied over groupies ,de originele titel is Starfucker maar dat mocht niet van de platenbazen.
Feministen waren niet blij met de voor de vrouw negatieve teksten,maar Mick Jagger heeft nooit zijn exuses aangeboden,ik beschrijf gewoon wat ik zie en meemaak zei hij ooit.




Status Q Your in the Army now (Knebworth 1990)

Nummer van de Hollandse broertjes Bolland & Bolland

Taj Mahal - Fillmore East, February, 1971

        © Amalie R. Rothschild, 1971

 Taj Mahal- vocals, harmonica, banjo, National steel guitar, fife; John Hall- electric guitar; John Simon - piano; Howard Johnson - tuba, baritone saxophone, horn arrangements; Bob Stewart - tuba, flugelhorn, trumpet; Joeseph Daly - tuba, valve trombone; Early McIntyre - tuba, bass trombone; Bill Rich - bass; Greg Thomas - drums; Kwasi "Rocky" DziDzournu - Congas

  © Amalie R. Rothschild, 1971

"You Ain't No Streetwalker Mama, Honey But I Sure Do Love The Way You Strut Your Stuff."

 The relaxed groove continues on Taj Mahal's original "Big Kneed Girl," before the group pulls out all the stops by wrapping up the set with "You Ain't No Streetwalker Mama, Honey But I Sure Do Love The Way You Strut Your Stuff." This is the prime example of Taj and the group's dynamic control, as over the course of this extended jam, the group often plays softly and sparsely, making the louder passages even more exciting and dramatic. Everyone makes a strong contribution, but the standout musician may be pianist John Simon, who has played brilliantly throughout the set. In many ways, he is the glue that helps this unusual configuration jell so well on stage. This number also features more superb blues harp from Taj before it quietly dissolves signaling the end of the set.

     "Diving Duck Blues."

The Fillmore East audience has no intention of letting things end here and their enthusiastic response entices Taj and the group back for an encore. Just shy of being complete due to tape stock running out, this features the entire group tackling Sleepy John Estes' "Diving Duck Blues." A song originally recorded for Taj's debut album, this is an altogether more exciting performance, fueled by Johnson's great horn arrangements and standout contributions from Simon and Hall, whose piano and lead guitar work respectively, are both outstanding. .

Tom Waits at Teatro Ariston, San Remo, Italy (1986-11-22)


Tom Waits, geboren als Thomas Alan Waits (Pomona (Californië), 7 december 1949) is een Amerikaans zanger, componist, schrijver en acteur. Zijn stem kan omschreven worden als een lage, rauwe, bijna grommende stem, en soms hees fluisterend.

Prachtig optreden van Tom Waits tijden het San Remo festival van 1986.
In het mooie Teatro Ariston speelde hij ,alleen begeleid door bassist Greg Cohen een selectie uit zijn reptoire.Hier een paar van mijn persoonlijke favorieten..


Downtown Train

"Downtown Train" komt van het album Rain Dogs uit 1985.

Rod Stewart nam een cover versie en bereikte hiermee een 3e plaats in the Billboard Hot 100,nummer 1 in Canada en de top 10 in the UK Singles Chart 1990.
Ook artiesten als Mary Chapin Carpenter,Patty Smyth Everything But the Girl en Bob Seger coverden het nummer


Jersey Girl

Waits schreef dit nummer samen met zijn toekomstige vrouw Kathleen Brennan,die in New Jersey gewoond had.

Waits vertelde in een interview uit 1980 "I never thought I would catch myself saying 'sha la la' in a song ... This is my first experiment with 'sha la la.'"



On the Nickel (Korte versie)Hieronder de complete tekst

.....It says sticks and stones can break my bones but I always will be true And when your mama's dead and gone, I'll sing this lullaby just for you What becomes of all the little boys who never comb their hair They're lined up all around the block on the nickel over there And if you chew tobacco and wish upon a star You'll find out where the scarecrows sit, now they just look like punch lines between the cars And I know a place where a royal flush can never beat a pair And even Thomas Jefferson is on the nickel over there So ring around the rosy, sleepin' in the rain You're always late for supper man you let me down again I thought I heard a mockingbird, Roosevelt knows where. I'm whistling past the graveyard, and they're on the nickel over there So what becomes of all the little boys who run away from home The world keeps gettin' bigger once you get out on your own But you never know how rich you are, you haven't got a prayer It's heads you win and tails they lose, You're on the nickel and you're over there...


(Looking For)Heart of Saturday Night

Komt van het gelijknamige album ,misschien wel een van zijn mooiste..

Robert Johnson - Sweet Home Chicago

Vandaag 8 Mei was de geboortedag van Robert Johnson .Eén van de invloedrijkste Amerikaanse bluesartiesten aller tijden.

 



Robert Leroy Johnson (Hazlehurst (Mississippi), 8 mei 1911 – Three Forks (Mississippi), 16 augustus 1938) is één van de invloedrijkste Amerikaanse bluesartiesten aller tijden. Hoewel hij slechts 27 werd, maar twee opnamesessies heeft gedaan en maar een twintigtal songs naliet, is hij hét voorbeeld voor veel blueszangers en -gitaristen.

Het blad Rolling Stone plaatste hem in 2003 op plaats 5 van de meest gewaardeerde gitaristen aller tijden.

Johnson woonde het eerste deel van zijn leven op een plantage waar hij zich bekend maakte met de bluesharmonica, maar het was zijn wens om de gitaar te leren beheersen. Binnen zeer korte tijd lukte het hem, met behulp van onder meer de mysterieuze Ike Zinneman, het instrument meer dan voldoende te beheersen. Deze prestatie bracht de fabel in de wereld dat Johnson zijn ziel had verkocht aan de duivel. Hij zou op een nacht naar een kruispunt zijn gegaan om daar gitaar te gaan spelen. Om middernacht zou hij benaderd zijn door een grote, donkere man (de duivel), die hem zijn instrument afpakte, het voor hem stemde, en het, in ruil voor zijn ziel, aan hem teruggaf waarna hij het perfect zou kunnen bespelen.

Na een van zijn optredens kreeg hij vergiftigde whisky - waarschijnlijk een actie van een jaloerse echtgenoot van een van zijn scharrels. Hij werd overgebracht naar Greenwood, waar hij het gif binnen enkele dagen door ziekte wist uit te zweten. Hij liep hierbij echter wel een longontsteking op die hem uiteindelijk fataal werd. Johnson werd geboren en overleed in de Amerikaanse staat Mississippi.


Hij haalde de banvloek van de Kerk over zich doordat hij in enkele songs suggereerde (me and the devil, hellhound on my trail) dat hij zijn ziel verkocht had aan de duivel om zo goed gitaar te kunnen spelen.
Johnson is zeer zeker niet de uitvinder van de blues; die bestond al geruime tijd voordat Johnson actief werd. Zijn belang voor de muziekgeschiedenis ligt in de mix die hij maakte van bestaande Delta blues en andere invloeden. Kenmerkend is de ritmische, doorrollende gitaarmuziek. Tijdens zijn leven speelde hij met latere bluesgiganten als Muddy Waters en Howlin' Wolf. In 1986 werd de film Crossroads uitgebracht, waarin de speurtocht naar een verloren nummer van Robert Johnson een thema is. In 1994 kwam er in de VS een postzegel uit met Johnsons gezicht erop. Deze was gemaakt van een van de twee foto's die van hem bekend zijn. De sigaret is echter weggeretoucheerd.

-                                     Lion's Share, 60 Red Hill Avenue, San Anselmo, CA

 The Lions Share was a tiny club at 60 Red Hill in San Anselmo. It was mainly a musicians hangout.

Tupelo Honey is the fifth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. It was released in October 1971 by Warner Bros. Records. Morrison had written all of the songs on the album in Woodstock, New York, before his move to Marin County, California, except for "You're My Woman", which he wrote during the recording sessions. Recording began at the beginning of the second quarter of 1971 at the Wally Heider Studios, San Francisco. Morrison moved to the Columbia Studios in May 1971 to complete the album.(Wikipedia)

After the Goldrush - Trio

 

"After the Gold Rush" is a song written by Neil Young from the 1970 album of the same name. In addition to After the Gold Rush, it also appears on Decade, Greatest Hits and Live Rust.


After The Goldrush

Dolly Parton once commented about the making of her version of the song; "when we were doing the Trio album, I asked Linda and Emmy what it meant, and they didn't know. So we called Neil Young, and he didn't know. We asked him, flat out, what it meant, and he said, 'Hell, I don't know. I just wrote it. It just depends on what I was taking at the time. I guess every verse has something different I'd taken.'


"After The Goldrush"

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights
In armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and
Drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing
To the sun
That was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.

I was lying in a burned out basement
With the full moon in my eyes.
I was hoping for replacement
When the sun burst thru the sky.
There was a band playing in my head
And I felt like getting high.
I was thinking about what a
Friend had said
I was hoping it was a lie.
Thinking about what a
Friend had said
I was hoping it was a lie.

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver
Space ships flying
In the yellow haze of the sun,
There were children crying
And colors flying
All around the chosen ones.
All in a dream, all in a dream
The loading had begun.
They were flying Mother Nature's
Silver seed to a new home in the sun.
Flying Mother Nature's
Silver seed to a new home.

Lulu & The Broadsides (feat.Dayna Kurtz)

      Lulu & the Broadsides are: Dayna Kurtz- vocals,James Singelton -bass,Carlo Nucclo - drums,  Robert Mache -guitar,Glenn Hartman -keys.
   
 Lulu and the Broadsides is one of the best new bands you’ll hear at this year’s Jazz Fest. Lulu is the alter ego of the great vocalist Dayna Kurtz, singing with a heart pounding, soulful panache that reaches even further than the extraordinary emotional depths she’s regularly plumbed. She’s backed here by her longtime accompanist, guitarist Robert Mache, and a superb rhythm section of James Singleton on bass and Carlo Nuccio on drums.

He,s the King

 Lulu is a stage name Kurtz had considered since high school.
“There was a girl named Lulu who was really brave and really sexy and really cool. I always thought she had the greatest stage name ever. I’ve been writing for her and it feels like I’m writing for another person. Lulu was waiting for New Orleans to come into full flower. New Orleans has a very special kind of mojo, and to me, feminine mojo. The minute I came here I walked with a swing in my hips that I’d never walked with before.
“I felt New Orleans call to me the first time I came here,” she continues. “It’s a mystique that has taken over my life and music in a very positive way. That was when I was releasing my Secret Canon stuff, which is definitely New Orleans inspired. It was when I was starting to incorporate the R&B I love with the stuff I was doing on my own

Do Right Woman,Do Right Man

 Mache has accompanied Kurtz since before she moved to New Orleans.
“I met him on one of my first tours down here. I was doing a benefit for the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic. The Continental Drifters were on that gig. Robert offered me a place to stay, so I wound up getting really tight with him and his wife Candace. When he moved to Memphis after Katrina, he hosted a house concert for me and sat in with me. It was magic right out of the gate.”
Kurtz put the band together last year to play a blues dance, and found herself starting a whole new project.
“It was so much fun to play slow blues songs. I was always cutting 6/8 songs out of my set because I had too many of them. Then we started playing more of these blues dances. So, when I started writing again, there was maybe one song that was clearly for my solo career and the rest of them were Lulu and the Broadsides songs.”

You,re Trouble

Now Kurtz has joined the ranks of New Orleans musicians with multiple projects.
“It’s one of the reasons I was so excited about living here. An artist like Aurora Nealand—who plays like Ornette Coleman in one band and traditional New Orleans jazz in another and rockabilly in another–this is the place I want to live. I want to be able to go off on tangents and have nobody think it’s a big deal. This is the only place I’ve ever lived where that hasn’t been a problem.”
