Hello All! Hello World!

Well hello there, it’s time for a real  _GYP_ the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape!

This one features two live Elvis performances as well as two versions of Dylan’s “Went To See The Gypsy” which is one of my favorite songs about Elvis Presley (another being “Tupelo” the 1985 track by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds).

We’ve also got “Camarillo Brillo” by Frank Zappa, which has been stuck in my head for a decade now. There’s also the lovely “Rainy Day” the 1970 track by Susan Christie (produced by John Hill), which seems appropriate considering the weather we’ve been having.

Oh and there’s a tune from Doug Randle’s 1971 LP Songs For The New Industrial State, a strange pop record that really calls to my mind Robert Downey Sr.’s brilliant 1969 film Putney Swope (on my list of top ten films of all time, really can’t recommend it enough).

 

Yeah there’s all this and a whole lot more! So…

The Donor
–Judee Sill
I’ll chase ’em to the bottom
Till I’ve finally caught ’em
Dreams fall deep
Where voices come a-chimin’
Moanin’ and a-rhymin’
Warning me
Their words are ringin’ and a-whinin’
Hear ’em weep
Songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem
O waters of the moon
Your vapors swirls and swoon
Your wake is wide
And sorrow’s like an arrow
Shootin’ straight and narrow
Aimin’ true, it’s sting goes
Reachin’ to the marrow
Silence cried
Now songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in…
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem

THE DEMISE OF THE MASK (VOL 6)

–   ————-_______

__________—

Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Six of the MixTape series: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__(Volume Two here)__(Volume Three here)__(Volume Four here)__(Volume Five here)-

This one features some fine tunes by the likes of Paul Simon; Childish GambinoPop Levi; (producer/arranger of Chess Records subsidiary label Cadet Records) Richard Evans with his late ’60s studio project The Soulful Strings; something from Paul McCartney‘s side-project with Youth under the moniker of The Fireman; something from MegapussDevendra Banhart‘s 2008 side-project with the wonderfully talented Gregory Rogove, Fabrizio Moretti & Noah Georgeson; and a long groove by one of the greatest groups of all time, Parliament-Funkadelic! Oh and you’ll hear a captivating alternate take of the 2005 song Bob Dylan wrote and recorded for the North Country Soundtrack, “Tell Ol’ Bill” and the mid-’70s track “Mary Long” by Indian psych rock band Atomic Forest. There’s also a triple-play from The Flaming Lips‘ stunning 2009 record, Embryonic. I am particularly fond of the nervous respect given to the power of creativity that is conveyed in the third of these tunes, “Powerless“:

“Honey, you’re just paranoid
“You should do what you enjoy
“No one is ever really powerless”
That’s what she said and she gave me a kiss
“No one is ever really powerless”
Now I think I know what that really is
 –
It only happens if you try
Pain and pleasure both get you high
“No one is ever really powerless”
That’s what she said, now I can’t forget
“No one is ever really powerless”
Now I think I know what that really is

____________—

You’ll hear all this and more so press play and enjoy yourself!
