Dearest Nico:
Hi! Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you and Hinch know that I ordered the Lana Del Ray cd, "Born to Die", with extra tracks, as I loved all of the songs that Hinch posted of hers (I believe they were all from this cd!), and i should be receiving it very soon. Just wanted you both to know....i thought all of the songs were AWESOME! Loved it, and loved her! Thanks again for the recommendation!
love,
joyce

Dear Joyce
You were almost right , the name was Rasa. There's another 'Death Of a Clown' on the BBC sessions album, but can't remember if the la la las are there or not. Been a while since I heard it.

Dear Bernard:
Yes, that's right! Rasa it was indeed! I am not sure, but I think all versions of that song had those la la las on it, but i could be wrong about that! I like the song though; just could do without the la las!!! thanks for the post, and the correction!!!
love,
joyce

Nico says:
I'm so happy for you Joyce. I love her. You will adore the album, I guarantee it. Now, get on that Leonard Cohen. It's never too late to embrace flawless music and Mr. Cohen never lets me down.

Dear Nico:
Hi! you made it! did you get my email (of explanation) i sent a while ago? sorry it took me a while to send it to you....
re: Leonard Cohen
yes, I did (quite a while ago) download the few cds (3, i believe) to my iTunes Library, and I have listened to 1/2 of one cd, but haven't gotten any further! Sorry! What I heard so far though, I did DEFINITELY LIKE A LOT, so it really is just that i have been rushing around lately.....I promise you though that i will listen to the rest, and let you know what I think about all of it! I also just got more Britney today (a few I was missing) so I just downloaded those as well!! So much music....so little time!!!!
thanks for the post!
love,
joyce

Nico says:
Joyce, here is a song Leonard wrote for The Velvet Underground's one-time chanteuse, "La Dolce Vita" actress, and powerful rock icon- the astonishingly gorgeous Nico. She was the object of affection for Alain Delon, Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Lou Reed, John Cale, Jim Morrisson, and many others, including Mr. Cohen.

TAKE THIS LONGING (1974)

Many men have loved the bells
you fastened to the rein,
and everyone who wanted you
they found what they will always want again.
Your beauty lost to you yourself
just as it was lost to them.

Oh take this longing from my tongue,
whatever useless things these hands have done.
Let me see your beauty broken down
like you would do for one you love.

Your body like a searchlight
my poverty revealed,
I would like to try your charity
until you cry, "Now you must try my greed."
And everything depends upon
how near you sleep to me

Just take this longing from my tongue
all the lonely things my hands have done.
Let me see your beauty broken down
like you would do for one your love.

Hungry as an archway
through which the troops have passed,
I stand in ruins behind you,
with your winter clothes, your broken sandal straps.
I love to see you naked over there
especially from the back.

Oh take this longing from my tongue,
all the useless things my hands have done,
untie for me your hired blue gown,
like you would do for one that you love.

You're faithful to the better man,
I'm afraid that he left.
So let me judge your love affair
in this very room where I have sentenced
mine to death.
I'll even wear these old laurel leaves
that he's shaken from his head.

Just take this longing from my tongue,
all the useless things my hands have done,
let me see your beauty broken down,
like you would do for one you love.

Like you would do for one you love.

Dear ILHJ:

Joyce...The Lewis Taylor "The Lost Album" is very Brian Wilsonesque....he was the lead singer of a blues band(The Edgar Broughton Blues Band) , he put out a R-and B album...which had the Brian Wilson song Melt Away and then the" The Lost Album"....The Three o' cLock, if you keep repeating the title of the album you'll get where it came from, when I 1st got the album in the 80s it took me months until it it hit me, it's a line from The Beatles"The Inner Light", Harrison sings Arrive Without travelling...Andy Pratt is a piano/singer - songwriter, wrote on this album nice touching lyrics and good hamonizing. The new Pornagrapher have about 6 albums all very good and hooky! I'm glad you liked the Dave stuff(you know,also how I feel about The Kinks)....he is definitley not as good as Ray (but then again how many people are).....but shame on Ray for not using him more because he is quite a good songwriter...we don't have to talk about his guitar work...which got better and more prevalent as the years went by...Phobia and To The Bone had some great great guitar playing! HAVE A NICE DAY

Eddie H. says:
Joyce,I found a nice overview on Resolution by Andy Pratt....
you should check it out it is terrific;

When it was first released in 1976, Resolution garnered great critical acclaim. While claims by Rolling Stone that Pratt "has forever changed the face of rock" seem far-fetched, it still is one of the finest singer-songwriter albums of the '70s. While Pratt's expressive, but sometimes high-pitched, voice may not be everyone's cup of tea, there is no denying that the songs themselves were superb. Furthermore, the arrangements and intricacies within each selection were something to behold. No two songs sound alike, yet there is a thematic link between everything presented -- that being the power of love to pull, push, and sustain every human being. The idealism and optimism that is pervasive throughout is balanced by a sense of how hard it is to reach that point, and thus the hopefulness seems real and earned. It is difficult to say which cuts are the highlight of the album, since each is so well thought out and constructed. Every listener will undoubtedly choose particular favorites. The range of music varies from jazzy ("Set Your Sights") to melodic and gentle pop("Everything Falls Into Place"(Lillian's Song)," to nearly hard rock ("Karen's Song"). Also particularly worth noting is the complex arrangements on "That's When Miracles Occur" and the father-son theme explored on the moving "Can't Stop My Love" (which explores Pratt's feelings related to his father's death). Although this album never attained the commercial success that many predicted, it remains a classic that deserves to be heard by a wide audience.

Lewis Taylor(I like the Lost album very much), here is a run down....I hope this doesn't bore you...if it does i apologize!!

A first spin of The Lost Album can get you to wondering if what you've just heard has any relation to soul, the sound on which the enigmatic British crooner Lewis Taylor has built his next-big-thing reputation. In a dozen songs, he drifts from the ringing guitars of classic '70s rock ("Hide Your Heart Away," "Send Me an Angel") to the warm textures and brilliant atmospherics of a classic "Brian Wilson" composition ("Let's Hope Nobody Finds Us") to a couple of vaguely Beatlesque songs ("Say I Love You" and "New Morning"). Along the way, he manages to conjure up Laura Nyro, Todd Rundgren, and Syd Barrett, too -- no small feat for a guy who was once supposed to be the next Al Green. That soul courses through Lewis Taylor's blood is something no one who's spent time with Stoned, a later Taylor record that was released in the U.S. prior to The Lost Album, could reasonably doubt. He's just chosen to filter it here, and in lesser hands that could have been a major disappointment. Instead it only adds to his mystery man appeal: something in the loose knit of the songs feels like an invitation -- his vocal delivery is more sweet suggestion than bold pronouncement, and his music follows suit. It's a warm puddle of a disc, moist with possibilities and deep, fresh imprints on well-loved, accessible sounds. Lewis Taylor probably doesn't mean to play genre roulette with his listeners -- more straight-up soul, for all we know, could be on the way -- but The Lost Album demonstrates pretty clearly that it's safe to plunk your money down when he does step up to the wheel.

The Whole of the Moon- The Waterboys
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsNTmjlf1vI

I pictured a rainbow
You held in your hands
I had flashes
But you saw then plan
I wandered out in the world for years
While you just stayed in your room
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon!
The whole of the moon!

You were there at the turnstiles
With the wind at your heels
You stretched for the stars
And you know how it feels
To reach too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon!

I was grounded
While you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truths
You cut through lies
I saw the rain-dirty valley
You saw brigadoon
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon!

I spoke about wings
You just flew
I wondered, I guessed, and I tried
You just knew
I sighed
But you swooned
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon!
The whole of the moon!

With a torch in your pocket
And the wind at your heels
You climbed on the ladder
And you know how it feels
To reach too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon!
The whole of the moon!

Unicorns and cannonballs,
Palaces and piers,
Trumpets, towers, and tenements,
Wide oceans full of tears,
Flag, rags, ferry boats,
Scimitars and scarves,
Every precious dream and vision
Underneath the stars

You climbed on the ladder
With the wind in your sails
You came like a comet
Blazing your trail
Too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon!
