I do hope you dig this here MixTape as it features some fine, fine music! There’s some stuff from Harry Nilsson‘s gorgeous 1973 album of classic 20th-century standards, A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night, a great tune from Karen Elson (produced by her then husband, Jack White), and two from Bruce Springsteen‘s 1973 debut: Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. To be honest it took me a long, long time to even give Springsteen a chance, until my buddy Matt Volz insisted that I listen to his first two records, and boy was he right! What a talent!
You’ll hear an 8-track demo outtake of John Lennon‘s powerful anthem, “God“, recording during the sessions for his first post-Beatles solo album, 1970’s John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. Parliament is represented with “The Goose,” which features a favorite line of mine:
Now, I’m as happy as a monkey with a peanut machineSince I found you
My only vice is the fantastic prices I charge for being eaten alive. . .
If you can see me I can see you–I could wear your new blue shoesI should wear your old red dressAnd walk to the crossroad, so take this knifeAnd meet me across the river–Just chutes and laddersAnd this is the kissAmerican Anna fantastic AlsatianFrom nowhere to nothingAnd I go way back–Children swarm like thousands of bugsTowards the lightThe beacons above the hillThe stars to the West, the South, the NorthAnd to the East–Now you can say I’ve got a gift of sortsA fear of rear windows and swinging doorsMy love of violence and tenants’ sighsIf you can see me I can see youIf you can see me I can see you–I have seen these bairns wave their fists at GodSwear to destroy the beast, stamping the groundIn their excitement for tomorrow–I could wear your new blue shoesI should wear your old red dressAnd walk to the crossroad, so take this knifeAnd meet me across the riverI will take your lands and all that lays beneathThe dust of cold flowers, drizzle of dark ashesI will slaughter your kind, descend from beliefI am the spirit of greed, the lord of theftBurn all your books and the problems they makeIf you can see me I can see youIf you can see me
Yes! There’s all this and a whole bunch of other good stuff so go on down and press play !
