Ellen Shea & David Egter van Wissekerke with Champain Charlie- Down on Penny,s Farm


/////////////////////////////////// The Bently Boys, from which we know nothing except that they were from North Carolina, recorded “Down on Penny’s Farm” in 1929 for Columbia Records. It featured banjo and guitar and the flip side track “Henhouse Blues” feaured also a fiddle player. Apparently they didn’t record anything else but their version of “Penny’s farm”, thanks to the Anthology, inspired the young Bob Dylan for one of the first song he wrote when he came to New York City, “Hard times in New York Town”. It would also inspire him to write his “Maggie’s Farm” a few years after. Harry Smith said that “Penny’s farm” was “a regionalized recasting of an earlier song called “Hard times”. /////////////////////////////////

Bob Dylan & Richard Thompson - Across The Borderline

Het lijkt me moeilijk om met Bob samen te spelen,maar een artiest als Richard Thompson kan er prima mee overweg.een redelijk geslaagde uitvoering van deze klassieker.

 "Across the Borderline", is geschreven door Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, en Jim Dickinson.

There's a land so I've been told
every street is paved with gold
And it's just across the borderline.
And when it's time to take your turn
Here's a lesson you must learn:
You could lose more than you ever
hoped to find.

And when you reach
the broken promised land
Every dream slips through your hand
And you know it's too late
to change your mind.
'Cause you paid the price
to come this far
Just to wind up where you are
And you're still just across
the borderline.

Up and down the Rio Grande
a thousand footprints in the sand
reveal the secret no one can define.
The river flows on like a breath
in between our life and death.
Tell me who's the next to cross
the borderline.

And when you reach
the broken-promise land
Every dream slips through your hand
And you know it's too late
to change your mind.
'Cause you paid the price
to come this far
Just to wind up where you are
And you're still just across
the borderline.

Joe Beck - Nature Boy

                                          Joe Beck - Please Believe Me
Beetje door de verzameling spittend kwam ik dit album weer eens tegen.Na lange tijd weer eens beluisterd en er achter wat een mooi album dat toch is.Misschien op sommige momenten wat gedateerd ,maar ook met een paar echte pareltjes waaronder bovenstaand nummer.
Joe Beck ging later volledig over op de Jazz toer ,en was een van de eerste electrische gitaristen in de band van Miles Davis .hij werd ook bekend als orkestleider,componist en schreef filmmuziek.Joe Beck overleed op 22 July 2008
