I've been called a "Chatterbox" a time or two.

My musical taste is all over the place.

At this very moment I'm listening to "Hella Good" by Gwen Steffani & No Doubt.

But tomorrow who knows.

If you want to talk music, make a recommendation or just get something off your chest, I'm here to chat.

Music is my life.

Thunderfromdownunder,

A deal with that.

"Chatterbox" is a great song and I'm quite the chatterbox when I get started on virtually any genre.

This morning my thoughts are on "The Women Behind The Songs Of Great Artists.

Two in particular that come to mind are "Layla" & Wonderful Tonight" both written by Eric Clapton for Patti Boyd.

Patti was married to Beatle (George Harrison) and Eric broke the man code by falling in love with a friends girlfriend, present or past. In this case it was George's wife.

"Layla" was written before Eric's take-away and "Wonderful Tonight" was written after Eric & Patti were married.

For all the bad blood and estrangement between Eric & George, Patti today is in someone else's arms.

Patti wrote in her auto-biography that leaving George for Eric was one of the biggest mistakes of her life.

Ouch that kind of hurts.

Feel free to listen to these wonderful songs.

This is a killer live version of "Layla." Best I've heard!

Patti Boyd was one beautiful woman in her day.

When she walked into a party she truly turned heads

We've uploaded our cds onto iTunes. That's a minimal part of our collection, which is still mainly discs and tapes. But it still runs a gamut, for we have examples of just about everything, including a Welsh musical. iTunes, I understand, has a free Christmas sampler to check out.

In the last week, the State Street Ramblers (Chicago jazz, 1928-36), a 4-cd country boogie to rockabilly comp (early to mid 1950s), Barber's Cello Concerto (c. 1945), Echoes of the Ozarks (2-cd comp of Ozark country string bands from 1926-1933), Sam Cook's gospel recordings with the Soul Stirrers (early-mid 1950s), Percy Mayfield (early 50s r&b), the Sex Pistols, and Radiohead's OK Computer.

Oh, yeah, and seasonally unavoidable--Vince Guaraldi's soundtrack from the Charlie Brown Christmas special.

Johnny

for the last week, I have been listening and watching "livefromdarylshouse.com". It is Daryl Hall with different perfomrers actually at his house (studio) and singing each others tunes. For Example Todd Rundgren and Daryl singing "Want of a Nail, Sometimes I don't know how you feel", Can we still be friends", Wait for me" and the old soul survivors tune "Expressway to your heart". There are many episodes, that is just one. Another is Smokey Robinson and Daryl singing "Sara Smile", "Being with you", Tracks of my tears". It is just wonderful stuff. You have to check it out

Has it really been that long?

Today (December 14, 2009) marks the 30th anniversary of one of rocks finest moments "London Calling" by The Clash, which was released on December 14, 1979.

19 songs of pure joy beginning with the title track.

My personal fave is their cover of "Brand New Cadillac", although there are many gems.

"Lost In The Supermarket" comes to mind and who could forget "Train In Vain."

"Brand New Cadillac" - The Clash

John Hammond - "Wicked Grin" The songs are by Tom Waits
Root Boy Slim & the Sex Change Band - "Boogie Til you Puke" is on Youtube
Two more that I have "rediscovered," on my top ten albums Fer Sher:
Terry Reid - "River" He ALMOST got the same job as Robert Plant
Leon Russell and the Shelter People - he sings an awesome version of "Beware of Darkness" and the best version of "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" you ever heard. He played on a lot of Dylan's albums, backed up Joe Cocker. Saw him on tour with Edgar Winter in 1972

Wow! Thirty years seems like forever! I still remember when I bought London Calling the first day of release . . . it was released with "Train in Vain" added at the last minute because the song had gone onto the US charts (something I thought would only happen when it could be reasonably ascertained that hell had frozen over). That song was added so near to the release that they didn't have time to list it on the cover with the rest of the songs! I still have that jacket with "Train in Vain" missing. Then I heard a teen next to me asking his friend why they did the picture in black and white. I had to walk him over to the Elvis section to explain what the Clash were referencing.

There's a great 4 CD set: "American Roots: A History of American Folk Music" that we got very reasonably that we've put on our iTunes comp.

I've always dug "Rock the Casbah" and "Should I Stay or Should I go?"

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 15, 2009 6:37:31 AM PST
I have the vinyl of London Calling as well, and you're right, Train in Vain isn't listed either on the back or the actual record label for Side 4, but it is on the actual record, never noticed that it wasn't listed at all before, lol. I'm not sure if the vinyl edition I have is a first pressing or not, since I bought it used a few years ago and wasn't even born when the album was released. Maybe none of the vinyl editions have the track listed. Anyway, that's a cool fact I wasn't aware of.
