Back to Back… Rollin Just to Fall

It’s been a bunch of days, too many to shamefully render myself now colorless I’m sure.

Right now, it’s later in the evening of the 10th, went to the neurologist today to figure out what was going on with my brain..to find out it’s really my neck. I have damage nerve endings from all the years of full contact fighting and cracking my neck. I also found out I have “vascular headaches” also know as “cluster headaches” which is a result of poor blood flow to brain, which anyone who knows me…ALREADY KNOWS… poor blood flow to MY brain in QUIT apparent!!…hehehehe..mmmm. SO I have to take Fiorcet, Medrol and have to get a Cortisone shot on Monday that is suppose to help reduce the disc compression to help heal my nerve endings and this picture below is a description of EXACTLY how my headaches feel. 

 

So since it’s been a while I bounced around ideas today… from one to the other. I was going to do a post on “sam the Sham” and then decided that I wanted to post a section on Catfish Hodge… but then changed my mind AGAIN because of my recent repetitive listening.

Tonight I am going to give you a fantastic selection that is a jazzy/ pysch/rock mastpiece. It’s really been helping me get through my days at work. An interesting foundation of music, intelligence and ferocity all bound together to produce this crazy, winding and insane sound of pure talent, founded by record producer Robert Fripp (lead guitar) . His recruiters consisted of a very dear friend of his, Michael Giles, who was the soul ground leveling master mind of the jazzy drum sets, which inevitably drove to the band to exactly just THAT. The rest of the intellect includes that of psychedelic jazz artist Ian McDonald (pipes, reeds, keys and vocs), Greg Lake (bass and also lead vocs) and Pete Sinfield (words and illuminations). A totally colorful collaboration of sound and monotony, released in 1969 on Alantic records, I share with you…”In the Court of the Crimson King”.

GOOD MORNING FOLKS!
So let’s talk 1969 (at 6:57am est), Savoy Brown right now since being inspired from few nights ago! A fun little sundae for your ears on this kinda depressing Saturday morning, awaiting the arrival of hurricane Hanna! As one of the early blues/pysch/ British rock band, they really pronounced a sound worth a lifetime, even though they received more stimulating encouragement from the US of A, then they did from their own country, they continued to press on to make face in the music industry. 1969 was actually the first year Savoy Brown would release two full length LP’s, both of which are just absolutely spectacular. This was also the year that they had hits, touching Billboard chart with their persuasive riffs. The first of the 1969 releases, “Blue Matter” is the LP I would like to introduce to you today.
 
 
“Blue Matter” (third consecutive LP) was released (each with different sleaves) on Deram (and also on Parrot) records in early 1969, shortly after recording and the release of (their 2nd album) “Getting To The Point”, released in 1968, also on Deram records. Although I have pretty much everything from “Blue Matter” to “Savage Return” (only missing Skin N Bone released in 1976), I still have yet to set my eyes on their first and second LP’s (“Shake Down” in 1967 and “Getting to the Point” in 1968). I suppose as my dad says…”Rare As Rice”, which I never got because rice isn’t all that rare?! I can drive down the street to get a bag of it, hehehe!!!!… Ok then, that was “off sides”!! Savoy’s sound was not only very distinctive and collaborative on many different levels, but genuine and plentiful. Even though going through some line-up changes periodically, they have pushed their talents through four decades, surviving the times and pressures of reinvention.
 
For me personally… it’s not just the smooth sound. It’s Chris Youlden’s voice…

Here’s a little present for your ears that I scored during my hiatus!

Now before I go into anything, I had been searching for this LP for a long time and never came across it. I suppose in the back of my head I figured that it was one of those LP’s that you quest for but take a lifetime to acquire.

So stumbling and scurrying between record stores and flea markets early last Sunday morn, my Husband and I quested off to visit our old friend, New Hope, PA. Now I love New Hope, there are so many cute little stores there! But anyway on our way up there we stopped at this flea market/antique store to buzz around and really just to dip our toes in fresh waters (even though we have been there 2 other times). I always like a newer, not as familiar place because sometimes going to the same old flea market weekend after weekend can feel a bit redundant.

At this time while we’re walking about (I have a sweatshirt on), the sun is crawling high and hotter into the breaking afternoon sky and the sweat is just DRIPPING off my face, down my back, under my boobs, down my ass crack and I’m starting to get a bit aggravated because I can’t even take off my sweatshirt because I forgot to shave my pits! We come across a few keepers that were within the isles that some vender’s had in stinky cardboard boxes, ON THE GROUND, but I need to be in the shade or the A/C, so I start making my way into the building part, which is actually the antique store.

While I am waiting for the sluggish Mr. Love, visually I start walking around the antique store when…BINGO… I lay eyes on this one music shop. Now, normally I try my VERY BEST to wait for my husband because he gets a little testy if I beat him to the punch on ANY record, which inevitably is a horrible thing when you both collect records because IN MY MIND… either way, ANYTHING we get comes to the same address and the same collection, so I don’t mind, BUT it drive him CRAZY!… In anycase I wondered over there all by my lonesome to check out this jazzy store. I skip the tapes and disc’s and just go right for the plastic boxes that held the vinyl and start picking through them.

The guys had a bunch of things there that I scored, but for me when I came across this LP, exuding the stench of yester-year… LITERALLY I almost fainted, because like I said, I just figured this was going to have to be an ebay purchase or something of that nature!

 give you “GUN”, their first, S/T LP released in 1969 on Epic records… and I can’t even describe tell you how much of a masterpiece this album truly is! A totally heavy, noisy, creative band that really (for me) highlighted the futility of the increasingly progressive British invasion!

ENJOY THE RIDE!

it’s 10:52 est right now, I was just buzzing around the YouTube and found this TOTALLY hip video for Savoy Brown’s-“Train To Nowhere” off their third LP, “Blue Matter” released in 1969. I really love Savoy Brown, ESPECIALLY early S.Brown.

I think I am going to do a blog on Savoy Brown for tomorrow!

ENJOY… because it’s totally cool with old nostalgic photo’s and flyers!

Had To Cry Today

Here’s a little number that took me back to 1997, stuck in a bedroom with no where to go and a bag of mushrooms, a few beers and a friend that I can’t seem to find way to locate these days. I’m thinking she fell off the face of the planet. I remember being in a heep of trouble with my mom and dad and decided that staying away from home for a few days would help smooth over a bad situation (even though it made it worse).

As I said, it was 1997, I was 16 and quite the rebel. I had been out partying with my pal Marian, who always seemed to be on the same page as myself, musically, mentally and emotionally. My parents had caught me sneaking out late at night and sneaking boys IN late at night. I guess in my head, I thought this was a never ending gateway to “cool” and based on my actions my folks found it very hard to bed down most nights because of my crazy antics. But anyway getting back to my “Blind Faith” story…

After all the games I had being playing, I figured that strolling away for a few days was for the best. Marian and I had plans one night to buy a bag a shrooms and eat them all, drink beers and just spin records and TRIPP face!! This is also when I decided again the whole “Pink Floyd is the best to listen to” when your trippin’, WASN’T…. because I AM TELLING YOU, Pink Floyd is the SCARIEST to spin down when your messed up on hallucinogens. Twenty minutes of crazy, wavy music by the likes of PF was enough for me… and I went stumbling over the the pile of records we picked out for spinning that faithful evening (Pink Floyd-The Wall, Led Zepplin-S/T, Uriah Heep-Demons and Wizards, Joni Mitchell-Clouds, West/Bruce/Laing-Live n Kickin, Black Sabbath-Master of Reality, Love-DaCapo, Blind Faith-Blind Faith, Metallica-Master of Puppets, Deep Purple-Machine Head and In Rock, Trouble-The Skull, Alice Cooper-Pretties For You… and a hand full of others that I can’t seem to recall. Must have been the shrooms) and plucked out the Blind Faith LP looking to replace the prior press that was currently making NUTTS.

This was actually the first time I had ever heard Blind Faith before, quickly to find out that everyone in the band was a musical hero in one fashion or another. Blind Faith-S/T was released in 1969 on Atco and produces such a rich, super-tone sound by the likes of Ginger Baker ( of Cream), Eric Clapton (also of Cream and of course the Yardbirds), Ric  Grech(of the underappriated and short lived band Family and another soon on the “post list”) and of course Steve Winwood (Traffic and The Spencer Davis Group). I remember how full I felt after listening to it and thinking that it could have NEVER sounded any better after that! Well, to say the least, it never sounded BETTER sober and has been a favorite for me for about 10 years now.

Emjoy the spins below, some of them may jump needle because both pressings that I have are a RECK. I never took good care of my vinyl till I got older, so it is what it is!
