Sad song.

(but we could use rain in the desert; none in sight before the last days of June).

This is Brook Benton, with the classic, lovely, heart-break song, in beautiful Stereo, "A Rainy Night In Georgia".

My folk-singer, guitarist, sister brought these artists from Canada into the house when I was about ten or eleven.

There's so much that's great on this record. Here's one track that comes over well, after all these years, "Poor Lazarus" (1964).

This is Ian and Sylvia.

(too many of the other great songs on this self-same classic record bring tears to my eyes. You may explore them on your own. I can even suggest, "Four Strong Winds", if you have a chance, ...sure to repay you richly, ...in tears). --Joe



Poor Lazarus

by: Ian and Sylvia

Well, the high sheriff
told his deputy
He said, a' go out and bring me Lazarus
Well, the high sheriff
He told his deputy
He said a' go out and bring me Lazarus
Bring him dead or alive,
o Lawd,
Bring him dead or alive

Well the deputy he told the high sheriff
He said I ain't gonna mess with Lazarus
Well the deputy he told the high sheriff
Said I ain't gonna mess with Lazarus
he's a dangerous man
o, Lawd,
He's a dangerous man

Well the high sheriff, he found Lazarus
He was a' lying in the fields of a mountain
Well the high sheriff, found Lazarus
He a' was lyin' in the fields of a mountain!
With his head hung down
O', o, Lawd,
With his head hung down

Well the high sheriff, he told Lazarus
He said, Lazarus I come to arrest you
Well the high sheriff, he told Lazarus
He said, Lazarus I come to arrest you.
Bring ya dead or alive
Lawd, o, Lawd
Bring you dead or alive

Well now Lazarus, he told the high sheriff
Said I ain't never been arrested
Well Lazarus, he told the high sheriff
Said I ain't never been arrested
By no one man
No, o Lawd,
By no one man.

O well the high sheriff, he shot Lazarus
Lord, he shot him with a great big number
Well the high sheriff, he shot Lazarus
Lord he shot him with a great big number!
Was a forty-five
O, o, Lawd,
Was a forty-five

Well they brought down poor Lazarus
And they laid him on the Commissary gallery
Well they brought down poor Lazarus
And they laid him on the Commissary gallery.
He said my wounded side!,
O, Lawd,
My wounded side... !

Here's a track from Thelonious Monk's 1968 record, "Underground". This is "In Walked Bud".

Bud Powell, a jazz pianist as Thelonious was, was a very close friend of Thelonious', in New York City.

Jon Hendricks is giving us the vocals, here; a great sense of Swing in this track... .

(the scat-singing is not transcribed) ;)



In Walked Bud

by: Thelonious Monk

Dizzie, he was screaming
Next to O.P. who was beaming
Monk was thumping
Suddenly in walked Bud
And then they got into somethin'

Oscar played a mean sax
(Mr. Max Roach beat a mean axe)
Mr Byas blew a mean axe
Monk was thumping
Suddenly in walked Bud
And then the joint started jumping

Every hip stud really dug Bud
Soon's he hit town
Takin' that note nobody wrote
Putting it down

O. P. he was screaming
Next to Dizzy who was beaming
Monk was thumping
Suddenly in walked Bud
...And then they got into somethin'

Such a good friend, over so many years:

Babatunde Olatunji's "Jin Go Ba" (though he spells the title differently). This is from 1959.

A later version was recorded, but that was admittedly more influenced by Western Jazz, probably for sales-appeal (?).

This is Olatunji's and his Ensemble's original, which influenced Carlos Santana (Santana's "Jingo"; and, "Soul Sacrifice"), and others, in various drum-intensive "Rock" tracks, after this original revelation and jumping! marvel, from the continent of Africa. And Bob Dylan mentions "Babatunde Olatunji" in the lyrics of one of his songs. --Joe

Dunno how many know who plays steel-guitar / slide-guitar / pedal-steel, on this track on an early Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young record, "Deja Vu" (1970). Nicely, it's a good long part of the track.

Well, it's Jerry Garcia, of The Grateful Dead. RIP, Jerry (and so many others): Good of you to give these guys a helpin' hand or two! , _/\_

This, too is from a while back, but great. And everything old is new again: Especially lately!

The Grateful Dead, and their "New Speedway Boogie", from their blockbuster record, "Workingman's Dead", released June 14, 1970; 48 years ago TODAY. And tomorrow... .



New Speedway Boogie
by: The Grateful Dead

Please don't dominate the rap, Jack,
If you've got nothing new to say.
If you please, don't back up the track
This train's got to run today.
I spent a little time on the mountain,
I spent a little time on the hill,
I heard some say "Better run away",
Others say "Better stand still".
Now I don't know, but I been told
It's hard to run with the weight of gold,
Other hand I have heard it said,
It's just as hard with the weight of lead.

Who can deny, who can deny,
It's not just a change in style?
One step done and another begun
And I wonder how many miles.
I spent a little time on the mountain,
I spent a little time on the hill.
Things went down we don't understand,
But I think in time we will.
Now, I don't know, but I was told
In the heat of the sun a man died of cold.
Keep on coming or stand and wait,
With the sun so dark and the hour so late.

You can overlook the lack, Jack,
Of any other highway to ride.
It's got no signs or dividing lines
And very few rules to guide.
I spent a little time on the mountain,
I spent a little time on the hill,
I saw things getting out of hand,
I guess they always will.
Now I don't know, but I been told
If the horse don't pull you got to carry the load.
I don't know whose back's that strong,
Maybe find out before too long.

One way or another, one way or another, (3x)
One way or another, this darkness got to give.
One way or another, one way or another, (3x)
One way or another, this darkness got to give.
One way or another, one way or another, (3x)
One way or another, this darkness got to give.

It's been so long
Long hard days

Gods change my ways
Change my ways
Those evil ways
So I set out
Cross that way
Strike them down
To make them pay
Change their ways
Their evil ways
But I can't hide
Ooooooo
And I won't hide
Oooooo Yeah!
My Evil Ways

I found out
The hate grow cold
The god rise up
Damn my soul
Cause I ain't change
Change my ways
I ain't change
So I won't hide
Ooooo
I won't hide
Oooooo
I can't hide Yeah!
Ooooooo
I can't hide HEY!

Well I can't hide
Ooooo
And I won't hide
Ooooo yeah!
Well I can't hide
