EVERYDAY WILL BE LIKE A HOLIDAY…BUT ’TILL THEN—NO SUNSHINE

"Silver Clouds - Pewter Sky" by Julia Curphey

I’ve got two for you today:

First up is the uplifting “Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday” by William Bell. Born July 16, 1939 in Memphis, Tennessee, Bell went on to be one of the principal architects of the Stax Records’ sound. His first hit for the label was 1961’s mournful, country tinged soul ballad “You Don’t Miss Your Water” (which was later covered in ’68 by the Gram Parsons incarnation of The Byrds for their country-rock masterpiece Sweetheart of the Rodeo). Due to a two-year stint in the Armed Forces Bell’s career was put on hold, and he did not release his first full-length album, The Soul of a Bell until 1967 (Bell, 2012). William Bell is also the man (along with Stax’s house organ player Booker T. Jones) behind “Born Under a Bad Sign” which was covered in ’68 as well, by British blues-rock supergroup Cream for their third and penultimate album, Wheels of Fire.

Released in 1967 and heavily featured in Miguel Sapochnik’s 2010 sci-fi action-thriller, Repo Men, starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker; here’s

Next up is some melancholy reggae to compliment the sodden, pewter sky outside my basement window. From the Denham Town area of Kingston, Jamaica, and off of his Black Gold & Green album, here’s “The Voice of Choice” Ken Boothe’s 1973 rock-steady rendition of the Bill Withers classic, “Ain’t No Sunshine.”

Interestingly enough, I recently read an interview with Bill Withers where he states that the inspiration behind this song was actually one of my favorite movies, the 1962 co-dependent, alcoholic-nightmare/love-story Days of Wine and Roses directed by Blake Edwards and starring Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick. It is a must-see film.
