Little Village - Across The Borderline (Dusseldorf Phillipshalle 1-4-1992)

                               Little Village was an American/British rock band, formed in 1991 by Ry Cooder (guitar, vocal), John Hiatt (guitar, piano, vocal), Nick Lowe (bass, vocal) and Jim Keltner (drums). Each of the group's members had previously worked on Hiatt's 1987 album Bring The Family, and formed in 1991 while on a break from their own musical projects.
The group's name was initially (and jokingly) announced as Hiatus. It was soon changed to Little Village, in reference to the foul-mouthed in-studio diatribe by Sonny Boy Williamson II, on a Chess reissue album titled Bummer Road. The group released its only album, Little Village, in early 1992. The songs were composed by all four group members and mainly sung by Hiatt, although Lowe took lead on two songs and Cooder one. While the album was met with general commercial indifference, it was nominated in 1993 for a Grammy Award as Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or a Group.[1The album peaked at #23 in the UK Albums Chart.

Across the Borderline was written by Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Jim Dickinson, and was sung by Freddy Fender for the movie soundtrack for The Border, starring Jack Nicholson. Ry Cooder later performed his own version of the song, which is about immigrants trying to cross the Mexican border into America. Cooder said: "To me, that borderline may be inside yourself." Willie Nelson has also recorded a beautiful version of this song, which includes the lines:

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

Johnny Cash present Bob Dylan (Johnny Cash Show 1969)

Those of you that were lucky enough to tune in to the first Johnny Cash Show on June 7, 1969 would have been intrigued and maybe a little surprised by Bob Dylan's appearance.(Bron Every Bob Dylan song)

                                         I Threw it all away(Nashville Skyline)

  You would've seen Bob walk out on stage, You would have seen him perform three songs, including a charming version of "I Threw It All Away", as well as reprising his duet with Cash on "Girl of the North Country" that arguably improves on the album version by virtue of being a tighter, more focused take (Bron Every Bob Dylan Song)

                       Livin The Blues (SelfPortrait)   
And you would have been even more surprised to hear a song that had never appeared on an album before, another low-key country song (a cover? an original?) with some nice backing from Cash's house band. That song would be "Living the Blues", a Bob Dylan original, and one of the highlights of Self Portrait (indeed, it probably would've been one of the highlights of Nashville Skyline). Why he played it on TV instead of, say, "Lay, Lady, Lay" is anybody's guess, but it's a pretty cool thing that he did, one of those strange side roads in Dylan's career.(Bron Every Bob Dylan song)

"Girl from the North Country" (occasionally known as "Girl of the North Country") was recorded at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City in April 1963, and released the following month as the second track on Dylan's second studio album, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. Dylan re-recorded the song as a duet with Johnny Cash in February 1969. That recording became the first track on Nashville Skyline, Dylan's ninth studio album.

Sea Level - instrumental (Macon 1976)

 Lamar Williams -bass,Chuck Leavell-piano/organ/vocals.Jaimoe - drums.Jim Nalls-guitar

Sea Level is the name of a fusion group that mixed jazz, blues and rock. Initially, it was an offshoot of The Allman Brothers Band, but as tensions grew between the loss of two of its founding members, and personal grievances between Gregg Allman and other bandmates and associates, Sea Level took on a life of its own as an independent band.

After the initial breakup of the Allman Brothers Band when Gregg Allman and Dicky Betts left, most of the remaining members who evolved into Sea Level were the trio "We Three" comprising bassist Lamar Williams, drummer Jaimoe and Chuck Leavell (piano, keyboards, vocals). The trio would occasionally open shows for the group in 1975 and 1976. With the Allmans disbanding in 1976, the trio added guitarist Jimmy Nalls and named the band based on a phonetic pun of their new bandleader Chuck Leavell's name: "C. Leavell." They toured relentlessly, experimenting and refining their sound, eventually signing with Capricorn Records (home of the Allman Brothers) and recording their self-titled debut album in 1977.

 Chuck (Alfred) Leavell (Birmingham, Alabama, 28 april 1952) is een Amerikaanse pianist en toetsenist. Hij speelde bij The Allman Brothers Band in hun hoogtijdagen en is de oprichter van de jazzrockgroep Sea Level. Hij is tevens een bekende sessiemuzikant (onder meer voor Eric Clapton) en hij speelt sinds 1983 bij The Rolling Stones. Hij werd in 2004 opgenomen in de Georgia Music Hall of Fame.

"Meena can´t be described with just two words, same with her music. Even if you try hard, you won´t find a word for the mixture of early austrian folkmusic, blues, soul, rock, singer songwriter, punk – as she says by herself  ” I´m influenced even by the background music in the supermarket”.(Bio)
