HELPLESSLY HOPING
(Stephen Stills)

helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers nearby
awaiting a word
gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit he runs
wishing he could fly
only to trip at the sound of goodbye

wordlessly watching he waits by the window and wonders
at the empty place inside
heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams he worries
did he hear a good-bye?
or even hello?

they are one person
they are two alone
they are three together
they are for each other

stand by the stairway you'll see something certain to tell you
confusion has its cost
love isn't lying it's loose in a lady who lingers
saying she is lost
and choking on hello

they are one person
they are two alone
they are three together
they are for each other

Edit (phaser) for speaker boxes. The phaser effect can only be heard via speakerboxes, NOT via headphones.
New, slightly improved video. The Rolling Stones on "Big Beat '65", an Australian TV show, Melbourne, 29 januari 1965.
Notice Brian Jones singing second voice (and doing the whistling).
The performance was all playback, so I decided to try and enhance the sound a bit. I tried to give it a phaser effect. Best heard through speaker boxes. Hope you like it.

NOT an edit (stereo transcr.). This one is from an unique Japanese album *, which says it is "stereo transcription". Though this is the regular mono version, it is UNIQUE, for no other album has this mono sound. A Japanese piece of art in sound engineering !

* The album is "Big Hits (High Tide And Green Grass)", released April 25, 1989 - catalogue number P25L 25039. The same master was used for two other Japan only releases of the album: the May 1 1987 P33L 25016 and the February 25 1995 POCD-1919. The three albums all have the UK tracklist and the nine "stereo transcription" songs.

First recorded on January 10, 1964, re-recorded on February 4, 1964. Third UK single, Feb. 21 1964. First US single, March 6 1964, and on the first US album England's Newest Hit Makers, May 29, 1964.

Harmonica: Brian Jones. Guitars: Brian Jones & Keith Richards. Percussion: Brian Jones & Mick Jagger. Lead vocals: Mick Jagger. Bass: Bill Wyman. Drums: Charlie Watts.

NOT FADE AWAY
(Norman Petty & Charles Hardin Holly aka Buddy Holly)(original performer: Buddy Holly in 1957)

I'm wanna tell you how it's gonna be
you're gonna give your love to me
I'm gonna love you night and day
well love is love and not fade away
well love is love and not fade away

my love's bigger than a Cadillac
I try to show it if you drive me back
your love for me has got to be real
for you to know just how I feel
love is real and not fade away
oh well love is real and not fade away

I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
you're gonna give your love to me
love to last more than one day
well love is love and not fade away
well love is love and not fade away
well love is love and not fade away
now love is love and not fade away
not fade away
not fade away

Edit 1a for headphones. "Top of the Pops" 1971 on UK TV. The official clip is missing the very first half of a second of the opening guitar riff, I added it in this edit. For that first note is what makes the riff the riff... yes, I made this one just for that first half of a second. I apologize for not being able to cut out that dreadful sax'oh''oh'phone, it is something we have to live with... (it would sort of harm the video).

BROWN SUGAR
(Jagger/Richards)

gold coast slave you're bound for cotton fields

brown sugar, just like a young girl should, now yeah

drums beatin' cold, English blood runs hot
lady of the house wonderin' where it's gonna stop
house boy knows that he's doin' all right
you should have heard him just around midnight

brown sugar, how come you taste so good
mmm, brown sugar, just like a young girl should

(cover your ears, that sax is coming !)

ahhh get down on your knees brown sugar, how come you dance so good
ahhh get down on the ground brown sugar, just like a young girl should

now I bet your mama was a p'tential queen,
and all her girlfriends were sweet sixteen
I'm no school boy but I know what I like
you should have heard me just around midnight

brown sugar, how come you taste so good
ahhh get down brown sugar, just like a young girl should
ahhh get down, get down brown sugar, how come ya, how come ya

Edit for headphones, for a home stereo equipment effect on headphones. Dull video, close your eyes, music is best experienced with eyes shut...
From the album "Love You Live", a great live performance, and, to be honest (matter of taste, I know, I know) this live version is far better than the studio version of album it first appeared on.
And that is the proof we're dealing here with one of the greatest rock & roll band on earth...

Edit for headphones. David Crosby recorded this track with the last remaining moments of studio time that the band had remaining, and while he was still reeling from the death of Christine Hinton days earlier in a car accident. She had been his girlfriend, and he was obviously still grieving. The pain in his normally smooth voice reflects a cracked and angry quality, belied by the light-hearted directive he makes at the start of the recording. If you listen to it, he starts, then stops, and comments as to the pace and gain of the recording, then the song starts again. According to the story as told by Crosby on the air with Bob Coburn of KLOS in the late 1990s, the recording is the only take that was done.

edit for headphones, to make it somewhat sharper, shinier, heavier. source file for the edit is from the 1991 compilation album "carry on".

Greg Reeves: bass, percussion
Dallas Taylor: drums, percussion
David Crosby: guitar, vocals
Graham Nash: guitar, vocals, keyboards
Stephen Stills: guitar, vocals, bass, keyboards
Neil Young: guitar, vocals, piano, harmonica

ALMOST CUT MY HAIR
(David Van Cortlandt Crosby)

Almost cut my hair
Happened just the other day
It's gettin' kind of long
I could've said it was in my way

But I didn't and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
And I feel like I owe it, to someone, yeah

Must be because I had the flu this Christmas
And I'm not feeling up to par
And increases my paranoia
Like looking in my mirror and seeing a police car

But I'm not, I'm not giving in an inch to fear
'Cause I've promised myself this year
I feel oh, like I owe it,to someone

When I get myself together
I'm gonna get down in that sunny southern weather, yeah

I'm goin' find a space inside a laugh, yes
Separate the wheat from some chaff
I feel
Like I owe it, yeah, to someone

TAKE HER HOME
(Harry J. Rijnbergen)

well if she comes with a new dress on
take her home, take her home
take a chance before a she has gone
take her home, take her home
if she comes only dressed for you
tke her home, take her home
take a chance, I mean if she goes through
take her home, take her home

take her home like you did before
don't be ashamed just shut the door
the lights are low when she's aflame
take her home, take her home

well if she comes with a smiling face
take her home, take her home
take your chance before you lose her trace
take her home, take her home
if she comes in the right night time
take her home, take her home
take a chance you won't never mind
take her home, take her home

there she is with her lips like cream
get yourself drift down the stream
you're allowed to do what you want to do
take her home, take her home

well it's the moment you are waiting for
all night long, take her home
can't you see that she is longing more
take her home, take her home
if she comes in the right night time
take her home, take her home
take a chance you won't never mind
take her home, take her home

take her home like you did before
don't be ashamed just shut the door
the lights are low when she's aflame
take her home, take her home

I'M A MAN
(Hugo Frey/Francis Scott Key/Domenico Savino/John Stafford Smith)

Now when I was a little boy
At the age of five

Keep a lot of folks alive

Made twenty-one
You know baby
We can have a lot of fun

I'm a man
I spell M A N
Man
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh

All you pretty women
Stand in line
I can make love to you baby
In an hour's time

I'm a man

Man

To Kansas Stew
Bring back the second cousin
Little John the conqueroo

I'm a man
Spell M A N

Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh

Will never miss
The way I make love to 'em
They can't resist

Edit for headphones. Source file is from "The Kinks Remastered" (1995 Castle cd # 268).(There is a stereo release of this song on "Face To Face" [2011 deluxe edition] but it only has backing vocals in stereo.) A 1966 # 1 hit in Holland, the UK and Canada. # 2 in New Zealand, # 7 Germany, # 13 Australia and in the snaily US it was a # 14 hit. Hit hit hurray I'd say...

Ray Davies was going through a very difficult time when he wrote this song. The Kinks were in the midst of a sudden rise to stardom, but group tensions, lawsuits, an unrealistic workload and craven management made them miserable. Davies was also dealing with fatherhood, and left the band for a while. When the song hit # 1 in the UK (knocking off "Paperback Writer" by The Beatles), it did bring Davies out of his funk for a while.

Ray Davies recalled writing the song's intro in the book "Isle of Noises" by Daniel Rachel: "I had bought a white upright piano," he said. "I hadn't written for a time. I'd been ill. I was living in a very 1960s-decorated house. It had orange walls and green furniture. My one-year-old daughter was crawling on the floor and I wrote the opening riff. I remember it vividly. I was wearing a polo-neck sweater."

Backing vocalists on this track were Dave Davies, bass player Pete Quaife, and Ray Davies' wife at the time, Rasa.

SUNNY AFTERNOON
(Ray Davies)

The tax man's taken all my dough
And left me in this stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everything I got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I gotta big fat mama trying to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In a summertime
In a summertime
In a summertime

My girlfriend's run off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Telling tails of drunkenness and cruelty
Now I'm sitting here
Sipping at my ice cold beer
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

Help me, help me, help me sail away
Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
'Cause I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In a summertime
In a summertime
In a summertime

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I gotta big fat mama trying to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In a summertime
In a summertime
In a summertime

BYE, BYE BABY
(Powell St. John)

bye bye bye baby bye bye
I may be seeing you around
when I change my living standard
and I move uptown
bye bye baby bye bye

so long my honey so long
Lord I might have been your wife
but you settled for a place
right here in my heart
you didn't want a place in my life

I know that you got things to do and places to be
I guess I'll have to find the thing you placed on me
I may wind up in the street or sleep beneath a tree
still I guess you know honey I've gotta go

I get the feeling I could chase you clean on in the ball
and wind up staying pull off put down strung out and stalled
honey I ain't got time to wait on you or to fetch your super-ball
I've got lots of things I've got to do

bye bye bye baby bye bye
I guess you know you're on your own
it seems you just got lost somewhere
out in the world
and you left me here to face it all alone

you left me here to face it all alone
you left me here to face it all alone
bye bye baby baby bye bye

DEAD END STREET
(Ray Davies)

There's a crack up in the ceiling,
And the kitchen sink is leaking.
Out of work and got no money,
A Sunday joint of bread and honey.

What are we living for?
Two-roomed apartment on the second floor.
No money coming in,
The rent collector's knocking, trying to get in.

We are strictly second class,
We don't understand,
(Dead end!)
Why we should be on dead end street.
(Dead end!)
People are living on dead end street.
(Dead end!)
Gonna die on dead end street.

Dead end street (yeah)

On a cold and frosty morning,
Wipe my eyes and stop me yawning.
And my feet are nearly frozen,
Boil the tea and put some toast on.

What are we living for?
Two-roomed apartment on the second floor.
No chance to emigrate,
I'm deep in debt and now it's much too late.

We both want to work so hard,
We can't get the chance,
(Dead end!)
People live on dead end street.
(Dead end!)
People are dying on dead end street.

NO EXPECTATIONS
(Jagger/Richards)

take me to the station
and put me on a train
I've got no expectations
to pass through here again

once I was a rich man and
now I am so poor
but never in my sweet short life
have I felt like this before

you heart is like a diamond
you throw your pearls at swine
and as I watch you leaving me
you pack my peace of mind

our love was like the water
that splashes on a stone
our love is like our music
its here, and then its gone

so take me to the airport
and put me on a plane
I got no expectations
to pass through here again

Edit (video ver.1c) for headphones, June 2022. A true high energy performance! This is a part of the video "Charlie is my Darling - Live in England '65", sound all pumped up to experience what the audience was feeling that day. This audio is extracted from a part of the video "Charlie Is My Darling - Live in England '65", which - though almost similar - is a different song than the one on the album "Charlie is my Darling - Live in England '65". It has some minor different lyrics.

Edit for headphones, May 22, 2021. A true sixties pop song, I liked it back then, came across it today, brings back the feelings from that time, though at the time I didn't like pop music at all, this song keeps popping up in my mind for several decades now, singing it translated into Dutch, and then it just makes no sense, shows it is a stupid song... but very pretty.

"Sugar, Sugar" is a song written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim. It was originally recorded by the cartoon band The Archies. This version reached No. 1 in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1969 and remained there for four weeks. It also reached No. 1 on the UK Singles chart in that same year for eight weeks. The song became a hit again in 1970 when rhythm and blues and soul singer Wilson Pickett took it back onto the charts with his own version.

Produced by Jeff Barry, the Archies' "Sugar, Sugar" was originally released on the album "Everything's Archie". The album was the product of a group of studio musicians managed by Don Kirshner. Ron Dante's lead vocals were accompanied by those of Toni Wine and Andy Kim. Together they provided the voices of The Archies using multitracking. The song was initially released in late May 1969 on the Calendar label (the same label as with the two previous Archies singles), achieving moderate chart success in the early summer in some radio markets. When the song was re-released in mid-July 1969 on the Kirshner label it attained massive success nationwide by the late summer/early fall.

Upon the song's initial release Kirshner had promotion men play it for radio station personnel without revealing the group's name, as the Archies' previous single, "Feelin' So Good (S.K.O.O.B.Y.-D.O.O.)", had only reached No. 53 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In an article published in The Washington Times lead vocalist Ron Dante recounts that the label was removed from the record, taken to a top radio station in San Francisco, where the DJ was told: "Just play it! It’s a mystery group".

After topping the RPM 100 national singles chart in Canada on September 13, 1969 (where it spent three weeks) the single went on to spend four weeks at the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 from September 20 through October 11. It spent a total of 22 weeks in the Billboard Hot 100 and was the 1969 US number-one single of the year. The song was classified by the RIAA as a gold record in August 1969, meaning it had sold one million units (the gold threshold was later lowered to 500,000). It ranked #81 on Billboard's "Hot 100 60th Anniversary" chart.

The single also spent eight weeks at the top of the UK singles chart and peaked at #1 on the South African Singles Chart. On February 5, 2006, "Sugar, Sugar" was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, as co-writer Andy Kim is originally from Montreal, Quebec.

Although official music recording sales certifications were not introduced in the United Kingdom until the British Phonographic Industry was formed in 1973, Disc introduced an initiative in 1959 to present a gold record to singles that had sold over one million units. The awards relied on record companies correctly compiling and supplying sales information, and "Sugar, Sugar" was erroneously awarded a gold disc in January 1970 despite having sold approximately 945,000 copies, as RCA Records had informed Disc that one million copies had been shipped, but not all were sold. Nevertheless, following the introduction of music downloads in 2004, "Sugar, Sugar" passed the one-million sales mark. In April 2020 the song was certified Silver by the BPI for selling 200,000 units since it was made available digitally in November 2004.

Edit for headphones. Wide sound, real smooth bass by Carol Kaye. (Though some say it is Larry Knechtal .) John Densmore – drums. Robby Krieger – Gibson SG electric guitar. Ray Manzarek – Vox Continental combo organ, Rhodes piano bass. Jim Morrison – lead vocals.
To be honest, this song starts and ends nice, but the organ and particularly the guitar solo is way too long and awful... that is a matter of taste, of course. My sincere apologies!
Anyway, if you agree or not, this shortened version seemed appropriate to me...

P.S. I didn't know there was already a short version (just read it on songfacts.com). Well, this is MY short version.

Charts history: nr.1 in the USA and France, nr.2 in Canada, nr.7 in the UK and New Zealand, nr.16 in Australia, nr.25 in shame on you Dutchmen.

Songfacts.com says:

« This became The Doors' signature song. Released on their first album, it was a huge hit and launched them to stardom. Before this was released, The Doors were an underground band popular in the Los Angeles area, but this got the attention of a mass audience.

This was the last song Jim Morrison performed live. It was a show at The Warehouse in New Orleans.

The Doors didn't have a bass player, but there is some bass * on this song.
Determining who played it is an inexact science, as session musicians were not formally credited at the time, but Carol Kaye claims it was her. She was a first call studio pro at the time, and had performed on a lot of the hits that were recorded in Los Angeles, including many of Phil Spector's productions. She told us regarding her involvement: "The Doors weren't there. Just a couple of the guys were there in the booth. We cut the track. I'm playing on that, but I don't like to talk about it, because there's too many fanatics about that stuff. I'm a prude. I don't do drugs. I think it's stupid. I think for people to be into drugs and to die on stage, I think that's so stupid, and totally unnecessary. So I stay away from even talking about that. But I am on the contract, yeah, I played on the hit of that." »

* ruudtes: SOME BASS? this lady is a VERY good bass player, and this edit emphasizes her skills!

edit for headphones... no description needed... the sound of love... ssshhh...
October 2019 I heard this song for the first time of my live, and immediately was very very deeply impressed.
Wikipedia says:.
"Turquoise" is a song written and recorded by British singer-songwriter Donovan. The "Turquoise" single was released in the United Kingdom on October 30, 1965 through Pye Records (Pye 7N 15984) and charted, peaking at No.30. The "Turquoise" single was backed with "Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness)" and only released in the United Kingdom. "Turquoise" was released as the b-side on "To Try for the Sun" in the United States.

"Turquoise" marked a significant drop-off in Donovan's UK chart success compared to the top 10 successes of "Catch the Wind" and "Colours" and the "Universal Soldier" EP. While "Catch the Wind" and "Colours" have appeared in various formats throughout Donovan's catalogue, live versions and re-recordings of "Turquoise" are conspicuously absent.

The relative lack of success in the United Kingdom was most likely the reason leading to Hickory Records selecting "You're Gonna Need Somebody on Your Bond" as Donovan's next single in the United States. Hickory Records later released "Turquoise" as the b-side to "To Try for the Sun" and made it the opening track to their 1966 compilation The Real Donovan. The 45 was one of the records in John Lennon's jukebox.

The song was written about Donovan's friend Joan Baez, with whom he claimed he was in love.

What I really don't understand is the total lack of musical taste of the 1965 audience... such a stunning song, wow, I can't get enough of it...

Well, no, I'm mistaken, it was not a TOTAL lack of musical taste... it charted #30 in th UK !

A song from the 1965 album "Catch The Wind".

TURQUOISE
(Donovan Leitch)

your smile beams like sunlight on a gull's wing
and the leaves dance and play after you
take my hand and hold it as you would a flower

take care with my heart, oh darling, she's made of glass

your eyes feel like silence resting on me
and the birds cease to sing when you rise
ride easy your fairy stallion you have mounted

take care how you fly, my precious, you might fall down

in the pastel skies' a sunset I have wandered
with my eyes and ears and heart strained to the full
I know I tasted the essence in the few days

take care who you love, my precious, he might not know

Not an edit. This is from a Frankenstein bootleg, which says: "This is a Frankenstein Christmas gift, a little gift to celebrate Christmas, in the pure Frankenstein tradition, a mix of Keith & Mick's voices on two tracks they have interpreted.
Wishing you all happy holidays and long life to the Stones, by Norbert (aka StonyRoad)."

This song is on the bootleg "Mick & Keith Mixing Voices: A Little Gift For Xmas 2019!" (Frankenstein Production - xmas2019).

I tell you: what has been done is ultra difficult, a warm thank you to Norbert for an outstanding editing job !

edit (instr.) for headphones. listen to the piano, Ian Stewart is so much better audible in this version! always a big thrill to hear the instrumental version of a song. reveals alot of what men of genius the Rolling Stones were in the sixties. Recorded March 6 - 9, 1966. Released on "Aftermath" in 1966. Remember that name: "AFTERMATH". Legendary album. When you spot it, buy it! Lead electric guitar: Brian Jones. B R I A N J O N E S. Wow, Brian Jones.*
Piano: Ian Stewart. Rhythm electric guitar: Keith Richards. Bass: Bill Wyman. Drums: Charlie Watts.

About the piano intro that ends in the "Satisfaction" guitar riff Bill Wyman wrote in one of his books that he made it up on an organ and he, Charlie and Brian were fooling around with it; Jagger and Richards later on took it as theirs.

505 was the flight number on their first trip to America. Five hundred five minus four hundred pictures in this video.

FLIGHT 505
(Jagger/Richards)

Well, I was happy here at home
I got everything I need.
Happy bein' on my own
Just living the life I lead.

Well suddenly it dawned on me
That this was not my life.
So I just phoned the airline girl
And said, Get me on flight number 505,
Get me on flight number 505.

Well, I confirmed my reservation.
Then I hopped a cab.
No idea of my destination
And feeling pretty bad.

With my suitcase in my hand.
In my head, my new life.
So then I told the airline girl
Well, get me on flight number 505,
Get me on flight number 505.
Alright.

Well, I sat right there in my seat.
Well, feeling like a king.
With the whole world right at my feet.
Of course I'll have a drink!

Well, suddenly I saw
That we never ever would arrive.
He put the plane down in the sea.
The end of flight number 505.
The end of flight number 505.
Alright.

They put the plane down in the sea.
The end of flight number 505.
The end of flight number 505.

are you smiling on my way
my obsession
are your possession
one that you should give away
give it to me now I've no objection

I a'don't mind if it's unkind
and it's not my property
but I want it just to be mine, exclusively

oooh baby, oooh baby
oooh baby, oooh baby
oooh baby, oooh baby

aaahhh

you need teaching you're a girl
there are things in this world
that need teaching with discretion, my profession

my obsessions are
your possession
are you used to the idea
my obsessions are
your possession
do you feel at home right here
you should relax is my impression

didn't see you were so young
I could almost see your son
please turn in my direction, no objection

Edit for headphones. Source file of the edit is the mono release on the 1965 album "Fairytale" (expanded deluxe edition 2001).
Donovan's recording was released on an EP titled "The Universal Soldier" in the United Kingdom (15 August 1965). The EP continued Donovan's run of high charting releases in the UK by reaching #5 on the charts. The tracks on the EP are "Universal Soldier" and "The Ballad of a Crystal Man". B-side: "Do You Hear Me Now?" (Bert Jansch) and "The War Drags On" (Mick Softley). The EP charted #9 in Holland.

The lack of interest in the EP format within the United States led Hickory Records to release the song as a single in September 1965. Donovan's cover of "Universal Soldier" was backed with another track from the British EP: "Do You Hear Me Now?". Donovan's US release of "Universal Soldier" also became a hit, charting higher than his previous single "Colours" and ultimately reaching #53 on the Billboard charts.

UNIVERSAL SOLDIER
(Buffy Sainte-Marie)

he's five foot-two and he's six feet-four
he fights with missiles and with spears
he's all of thirty-one and he's only seventeen
he's been a soldier for a thousand years
he's a catholic a hindu an atheist a jain
a buddhist and a baptist and a jew
and he knows he shouldn't kill
and he knows he always will
kill you for me my friend and me for you
and he's fighting for canada
he's fighting for france
he's fighting for the usa
and he's fighting for the russians
and he's fighting for japan
and he thinks we'll put an end to war this way
and he's fighting for democracy
he's fighting for the reds
he says it's for the peace of all
he's the one who must decide
who's to live and who's to die
and he never sees the writing on the wall
but without him
how would hitler have condemned him at labau?
without him caesar would have stood alone
he's the one who gives his body
as a weapon of the war
and without him all this killing can't go on
he's the universal soldier and he really is to blame
his orders come from far away no more
they come from here and there and you and me
and brothers can't you see
this is not the way we put an end to war

I AM FREE
(Ray Davies)

sailing in-between, the land the air and me
confusion never dawns
'cause frame of mind tells me that I am free

I am free

doors are open wide
no credits to be seen

sail with me my friend
I need someone it's dark and it could get lonely

I am free

I am free

I don't care to be
assembler mass machine
to wait the gong tone
and convalesce when society doesn't need me

I am free

Edit for headphones of the famous mono single, the first hit single of Status Quo. Released January 5, 1968. Dubbed video. The single reached number four in (hurray for) Holland, number seven in the British charts (hurray Brittain for leaving sucking-us-empty EU), number eight in Canada, and number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming their only hit single in the United Retarded States... just joking... referring to their backward attitude towards Europe back then... and still, btw... 'cause they - in general - think Europe is all socialism... while it's all, well, almost all, big fat belly pocket liners, even the ones that call themselves socialists (who by the way play hardly any role anymore in Europe)(yes, their days are over), again, pocket liners, especially the ones that reside in Brussels, calling themselves united european rulers... but in fact they are united european thieves... the TRUE present day retarded are the Russians who believe whatever Putin and his henchmen tell them. Liars of the first order. They are raging a war in Ukraine & tell their people they're on a peace mission. Even the German Nazi's didn't lie that severly ! ! !

The "matchstick men" of the song refers to the paintings of L.S. Lowry, who made paintings with thin, spindly people on it. *

PICTURES OF MATCHSTICK MEN
(Francis Dominic Nicholas Rossi)

When I look up to the sky
I see your eyes, a funny kind of yellow
I rush home to bed, I soak my head
I see your face underneath my pillow
I wake next morning, tired still yawning
See your face come peeking through my window

Pictures of matchstick men and you
mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you

Windows echo your reflection
When I look in their direction gone
When will this haunting stop
Your face, it just won't leave me alone

Pictures of matchstick men and you
mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you

You in the sky, you with the sky
You make me cry, your eyes

You in the sky, you with this guy
You make men cry, you lie

Pictures of matchstick men and

Rossi said the song is about a bad marriage: well, when I watch the paintings of Lowry they make me feel sad, just like pictures of his then wife made Rossi feel sad. Guess that is the true meaning of the lyrics.

WHEN YOU DANCE I CAN REALLY LOVE
(Neil Young)

when you dance do your senses tingle
then take a chance
in a trance while the lonely mingle
with circumstance

I got something to tell you
you made it show
let me come over
I know you know
when you dance, oooh
I can really love

I can love, I can really love
I can really love
I can love, I can really love
I can really love

like a mountain that's growing
a river that rolls
let me come over
I know you know
when you dance, oooh
I can really love

when you dance do your senses tingle
then take a chance

Edit 1a (r&r circus) for headphones. Another one from the "Rock And Roll Circus" that needed some "enhancement". The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus is a film of an 11 December 1968 event organized by The Rolling Stones. The event comprised two concerts on a circus stage and included such acts as The Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, and Jethro Tull. John Lennon and his fiancee Yoko Ono performed as part of a supergroup called The Dirty Mac, along with Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell, and Keith Richards. It was most likely the yelling-like-a-lunatic of Yoko Ono along with this "supergroup" that prevented this film to be released for many many years. It took 28 years before they finally did! Boy what a drag! She is so sad!

YOU CAN'T CATCH ME
(Chuck Berry)

I bought a brand new airmobile
It was custom made
It was a Flight DeVille
With a poweful motor
And some hideaway wings
Push in on the button and you can hear her sing
Now you can't catch me
No, baby, you can't catch me
'Cause if you get too close
You know I'm gone like a cool breeze

New Jersey Turnpike in the wee wee hours
I was rolling slowly 'cause of drizzlin' showers
Up come a flattop he was movin' up with me
Then come sailin' goodbye
In a little old suped up mini
I put my foot in my tank and I begin to roll
Moanin' sirens, was the state patrol
So I get out my wings and then I blew my horn
Bye-bye New Jersey I become airborne

Now you can't catch me
No, baby you can't catch me
'Cause if you get too close
You know I'm gone like a cool breeze

Flyin' with my baby last Saturday night
Wasn't no gray cloud floatin' in sight
Big full moon shinin' up above
Cuddle up honey be my love
Sweetest little thing that I ever seen
I'm gonna name you Mabelline
Flyin' with all the things set on flight control
Radio tuned to rock 'n' roll
Two, three hours passin' by
Altitude dropped to 505
Fuel consumption way too fast
Let's get on home before we run out of gas

Now you can't catch me
No baby, you can't catch me
'Cause if you get too close
You know I'm gone like a cool breeze

Edit 2 for headphones. (Less channel separation, more bass, more brass, more of everything.) This is an edit of the version of a Japanese "Let It Bleed" blu-ray cd (2013 cat. 018771812425). "You can't Always Get" was recorded on November 16 & 17, 1968. First released on "Let It Bleed" in 1969. Brian Jones ran into Al Kooper outside the studio during a break in the recording and invited him in to play on the track. Kooper became a main contributor to the song, whereas Jones didn't play on the cut. Brass instruments, great idea, Brian!

Lead vocals: Mick Jagger. Acoustic & electric guitars: Keith Richards. Maracas & congas: Rocky Dijon. Bass: Bill Wyman. French Horn: Al Kooper. Piano & organ: Al Kooper. Drums: Jimmy Miller. Choir: London Bach Choir. Background vocals: Madeline Bell, Nanette Newman, Doris Troy & the London Bach Choir.

YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

Choir:
I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime you find
You get what you need

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was, footloose man

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, well you might find
You get what you need

Oh yea-ay (hey-hey-hey, oooh)

And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singin', 'We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't, we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse'
Sing it to me, now

(You can't always get what you want)
(You can't always get what you want)
(You can't always get what you want)
But if you try sometimes, well you just might find
You get what you need
Ooh baby, yeah, ooh

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standin' in line with Mr. Jimmy
A-man, did he look pretty ill

We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was 'dead'
I said to him

(You can't always get what you want) well no!
(You can't always get what you want) tell ya baby
(You can't always get what you want) no
But if you try sometimes, you just might find, mmm!
Mmm! you get what you need
Ooh yes! Woo!

(Instrumental & choir) Ooow-ooh!

You get what you need
Yeah!
Ooow, babe!
Ooh, yeah

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well, I could tell by her blood-stained hands
Say it!

(You can't always get what you want) yeah!
(You can't always get a-what you want) ooo-yeah, baby!
(You can't always get a-what you want)
But if you try sometime, you just might find

ROSETTA
(Mike - born Michael - Snow) *

well my little girl is a sweet little girl
she does things that make your eyebrows curl
you let her loose for a Friday night
you know it's gonna end in a fight

Rosetta drinks her whisky neat
she gets in a fight and she might get beat
so I go around on the Saturday night
and ask her if she feels alright

Rosetta are you better are you well well well
Rosetta are you better are you well well well
well well well well well well well well well

when Friday comes she's fine again
so we go to a club where we got friends
knocked on the door but we couldn't get in
'caus the boss don't want no fuss

so we went up town and we drank around
Rosie ended on the ground
I took her home and I put her to bed
and you can guess what I said

Rosetta are you better are you well well well
Rosetta are you better are you well well well
well well well well well well well well well

Rosetta are you better are you well well well
Rosetta are you better are you well well well
well well well well well well well well well

well my little girl is a sweet little girl
but she does things makes your eyebrows curl
you let her loose on a Friday night
you know it's gonna end in a fight

Rosetta are you better are you well well well
Rosetta are you better are you well well well
well well well well well well well well well

well well well well well well well well well

you know it's alright
d you hear what I say
take it easy baby

Born and raised in Liverpool, England, the son of Irish immigrants, Michael Snow began his professional music career in 1962 with the Merseybeat group The Barons, who recorded for Parlophone/EMI.
Moving to London in 1964, he joined West Five, scoring a chart hit with the early Jagger/Richards composition "Congratulations," after which his Irish roots showed briefly in a six-month stint with the prominent showband from Waterford, The Blue Aces (HMV Records).

As a London resident, Michael established himself as a freelance touring pianist/musical director with visiting R&B stars such as Doris Troy, Edwin Starr, Ben E. King, and The Checkmates.

Michael joined The Checkmates as a full member in 1966, helping the band's transition to mainstream rock acceptance under their new name Ferris Wheel. Having tasted songwriting success composing Marmalade's first hit "Can't Stop Now" (CBS), he became chief writer/arranger on a string of popular European releases from Ferris Wheel, retiring from the band in 1969 to pursue songwriting and studio session work, while also serving as a music publishing manager for the world renowned Robert Stigwood Organization. During his period he contributed to works by, most notably, Dusty Springfield, Lulu

Edit (phaser) just for fun, for the official release is perfect and needs no editing.
It's the debut song by this British band, released 12 May 1967 and one of fewer than thirty singles to have sold over ten million copies worldwide.
Thanks "michisch2000" for the video.

Procol Harum's lyricist Keith Reid wrote the words to this song. He told us: "It's sort of a film, really, trying to conjure up mood and tell a story. It's about a relationship. There's characters and there's a location, and there's a journey. You get the sound of the room and the feel of the room and the smell of the room. But certainly there's a journey going on, it's not a collection of lines just stuck together. It's got a thread running through it." Reid got the idea for the title when it came to him at a party, which gave him a starting point for the song. Says Reid: "I feel with songs that you're given a piece of the puzzle, the inspiration or whatever. In this case, I had that title, 'Whiter Shade of Pale,' and I thought, There's a song here. And it's making up the puzzle that fits the piece you've got. You fill out the picture, you find the rest of the picture that that piece fits into."

Reid formed Procol Harum in 1967 with Gary Brooker, becoming an official member even though he didn't sing or play any instruments. "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" was one of about 15 songs that he wrote for their first album. Says Reid: "We were really excited about it and liked it a lot. And when we were rehearsing and routine-ing our first dozen songs or so, it was one that sounded really good. But there were a few others that we liked I would say equally - we have a song on our first album called 'Salad Days (Are Here Again)' that was a strong contender. At our first session, we cut four tracks, and 'Whiter Shade of Pale' was the one that recorded best. In those days it wasn't just a question of how good is your song? It was how good of a recording can you make? Because it was essentially live recording, and if you didn't have a great sound engineer or the studio wasn't so good, you might not get a very good-sounding record. And for some reason everything at our first studio session came out sounding really good."

Procol Harum had a few more modest hits, including "Homburg" and "Conquistador," but they attracted a devoted following, releasing 10 albums before breaking up in 1977 (they would re-form in 1991). The band was always more concerned with the quality and integrity of their music than with serving the singles market, which them unlikely candidates for one of the most successful singles of all time. When we spoke with Gary Brooker on the subject in 2010, he explained: "What is a hit? I think that any song that's going to immediately capture people and stay with them for a bit. What happens with a song that becomes a hit is that people want to hear it again, they've got to hear it again. Therefore, that requires what we call 'hooks,' doesn't it? And hooks can be all sorts of things, they can be just a little turnaround in the song. Often the people that aren't musicians, the producers and the people at record companies, are the ones that pick up on what is the hook. It might be an unimportant part of the song to you, but suddenly that is the part of the song that captures you. That's the part that hooks you and gets you in. So if you're thinking of a single, then you've got to have hooks and/or you've also got to have something that's quite different to everything else that's around. I think 'A Whiter Shade of Pale' fell into that category, something like - what's the one by the Irish girl that was a Prince song? 'Nothing Compares'? That's got lots of hooks in it, also. It was very different to whatever else was around musically, off the wall and interesting. We don't always want what we heard last week. It doesn't mean to follow the fads and fashions is what makes a success, often it's the complete opposite of that. The go-where-no-man-dares-to-tread."

Not an edit. Another great song from John Sebastian's 1974 album "Tarzana Kid". Though the album was a commercial failure and did not chart it contains some amazingly beautiful precious gems you really wouldn't want to miss. Here is the first one on the album, a smashingly well done sound, proving John is a master in sound recording and a great musician. A genious. I heard a lot of sixties and seventies albums and the major part has a poor sound quality. John stands out from the crowd! A seventy four year old album that sounds like being recorded seventy four minutes ago... More songs of this album are published on this channel...

The first time I heard this song was while watching the movie "Walk The Line", the story about Johnny Cash, where Reese Witherspoon plays this tune. By the way: though it is not nice towards Johnny and June, I must admit that Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon sang some outstanding covers in that movie, some sounded even better than the original ones!

Considering the massive list of people who contributed to the album it must have been so very hard for John Sebastian to deal with the fact that the album was a commercial failure... let this be a comfort: in the early sixties when the Beatles were introduced to the Dutch tv audience, some backward tv host's talent scouting program concluded that they didn't stand a chance... or: a commercial failure doesn't at all represent the fineness of an album...

Personnel on the album:

John Sebastian – vocals, guitar, harmonica, autoharp, banjo, marimba, harmonica, dulcimer
Phil Everly – backing vocals
Emmylou Harris – backing vocals
Ry Cooder – mandolin, slide guitar
The Pointer Sisters – backing vocals
Lowell George – slide guitar, guitar, harmony vocals
Jim Gordon – drums
Kenny Altman – bass
Milt Holland – drums
Amos Garrett – guitar
Russell DaShiell – guitar
Richie Olson – clarinet
Bobbye Hall – congas

Ron Koss – guitar

WILDWOOD FLOWER
"Wildwood Flower" is a variant of the song "I'll Twine 'Mid the Ringlets", published in 1860 by composer Joseph Philbrick Webster, who wrote the music, with lyrics attributed to Maud Irving. Other versions of the song have evolved, including "The Pale Amaranthus" (collected in Kentucky and North Carolina, reported in 1911), "Raven Black Hair" and "The Pale Wildwood Flower" (collected 1915–1919), and "The Frail Wildwood Flower".

The original Carter Family first recorded "Wildwood Flower" in 1928 on the Victor label.

Edit (live'64) for headphones. Brian louder, Keith sharper. No babbling host, so another "hostless" edition.
This song was recorded live at Camden Theatre, London, March 19, 1964 during an experimental "stereo" tv broadcast by the BBC, one channel on mono tv, the other channel on mono radio to get a stereo sound.

The song was for ages on various bootlegs, along with three other stereo songs of that day, until they finally - 48 years later, in an other millenium - surfaced on "Grrr!" (super deluxe edition).

Rhythm guitar & backing vocals: Brian Jones. Lead vocals: Mick Jagger. Lead guitar: Keith Richards. Drums: Charlie Watts. Bass & backing vocals: Bill Wyman.

YOU BETTER MOVE ON
(Arthur Alexander)
(Alexander is the only songwriter whose songs have been covered on studio albums by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan.)

You ask me to give up the hand of the girl I love
You tell me, I'm not the man she's worthy of
But who are you to tell her who to love?
That's up to her, yes, and the Lord above
You better move on

Well I know you can buy her fancy clothes and diamond rings
But I believe she's happy with me without those things
Still you beg me to set her free
But my friend, that will never be
You better move on

Now I don't blame you for loving her
But can't you understand, man, she's my girl
And I, never never ever gonna let her go
‘Cuz I, yeah, I love her so

I think you better go now , I'm getting mighty mad
You ask me to give up the only love I've ever had
Maybe I would, oh, but I love her so
I'm never gonna let her go
You better move on, you better moe on, you better move on,
you better move on

Not an edit. A song from the 1973 album "Like An Old Fashioned Waltz (2005 remaster). This take has no violins.

Personnel on the album:
Sandy Denny - vocals, piano, acoustic guitars
Trevor Lucas - guitar
Jerry Donahue - electric guitar
Richard Thompson, Diz Disley - guitar
Jean Roussel, John "Rabbit" Bundrick - keyboards
Ian Armit - piano
Alan Skidmore - saxophone
Pat Donaldson, Dave Pegg, Danny Thompson - bass
Gerry Conway, Dave Mattacks - drums

With Like an Old Fashioned Waltz, Sandy Denny expands on the more polished moments that her previous work, Sandy (1972), had suggested. The tone throughout most of the record is melancholy and personal, with gentle piano, rich strings, and barely a trace of her British folk roots. "Solo," one of her best songs, opens the album with a sense of apprehension and yearning, while cuts such as the beautifully vivid title track, the longing "At the End of the Day," and the evocative closer "No End" nicely follow suit. The Ink Spots covers "Whispering Grass" and "Until the Real Thing Comes Along" break the mood a bit, but it's a testament to the breadth of Denny's talent that she's able to make this sort of jazz-inflected pop work for her. These two songs seem to hint at a new direction that never really materialized in her final years, though an entire album of Ink Spots tunes was actually rumored at one point. As Sandy Denny's last solo work for four years, Like an Old Fashioned Waltz remains an intimate and moving record.

AT THE END OF THE DAY (ALT. TAKE)
(Sandy Denny)

oh babe you are
the one I love
you are the one
I'm thinking of
you know it's still
a long long way
but I'll be home
at the end of the day

I'll sing my songs
just for you
and I'll bring my love
home to you
I can hardly wait
to see your face again
but I'll be home
at the end of the day

just miles and miles
of rosy sky
I'll fall asleep
by and by
I'm crying now
'caus you're
so far away
but I'll be home
at the end of the day

oh babe you are
the one I love
you are the one
I'm thinking of
so many words
I need to say
you'll hear them all
at the end of the day
I'll be home
at the end of the day

In 1967 no. 18 in Holland's Top 40. Didn't chart anywhere else. Dig a meter in the ground, go stand in it and go shame yourselves, all you non-Dutch...

SPANISH ROSE
(Van Morrison)

the wine beneath the bed,
the things we've done and said
and all the memories that come glancing back to me
in my loneliness

you're standing in the breach
beyond that stretch, but our love reach
unconsciousness that has find me sometimes wondering
where you're at

hmm, take me back again,
take me back one more time, spanish rose

the way you pulled the gate
behind you when you said, "it ain't too late,
come on, let's swing the town and have a, ball tonight."

and hoping you'd come through
and many others, too,
and all the friends we used to have in days gone by,
I'm wondering

if you'll take me back again,
take me back one more time, spanish rose

and when the lights went out there
no one was about
and all the country in full bloom
in the room we danced

and many hearts were torn
and when the word went around that everything was wrong
and just couldn't be put right
it tore me up, it tore me up, love

the way you held a note
the trembling in your throat
that just beginning of your wondrous smile

the rising of the water
the winter winds of days gone by
I often ask myself and wonder why
it's gone

oh take me back again
take me back one more time, spanish rose

in slumber you did sleep
the window I did creep
and touch your raven hair and sang that song
again to you

you did not even wince
you thought I was the prince
to come and take you from your misery
and lonely castle walls

ah, take me back again
take me back one more time, spanish rose

ah ah ah ah mm mm

Edit (extended) for headphones. Two minutes and six seconds longer, 'cause I just can't get enough of this piece of art. Kate and Anna McGarrigle were from Quebec. In the 1960s, in Montreal, they began performing in public and writing their own songs. From 1963 to 1967 they teamed up with Jack Nissenson and Peter Weldon to form the folk group "Mountain City Four". Kate's son is Rufus Wainwright, her daughter is Martha Wainwright.
This song is from the album "Kate & Anna McGarrigle" (2011 remaster).

A #18 hit in Holland in 1976. Can't find any info on other countries' charts about this song. Anyone?

COMPLAINTE POUR STE CATHERINE
(Anna McGarrigle and Philippe Tatarcheff)

moi j'me promène sous Ste Catherine, j'profite la chaleur du métro
je n'me regarde pas dans les vitrines, quand il fait trente en dessous d'zéro

il y'a longtemps qu'on fait d'la politique, vingt ans de guerre contre les moustiques

je ne me sens pas intrépide, quand il fait frais j'fais pas du ski
j'ai pas d'motel aux Laurentides, le samedi c'est l'soir du hockey

il y'a longtemps qu'on fait d'la politique, vingt ans de guerre contre les moustiques

faut pas croire que j'suis une imbécile, parce que j'chauffe pas une convertible
la gloire c'est pas mal inutile, au prix de gaz c'est trop pénible

il y'a longtemps qu'on fait d'la politique, vingt ans de guerre contre les moustiques

on est tous frères pis ça s'adonne, qu'on a toujours eu du bon temps
parce qu'on reste sur la terre des hommes, même les femmes et les enfants

il y'a longtemps qu'on fait d'la politique, vingt ans de guerre contre les moustiques

croyez pas qu'on n'est pas chrétien, le dimanche on promène son chien

la la la la la la laaa laaa
la la la la la la la laaa

la la la la la la laaa laaa
la la la la la la la laaaaaaaaa...

il y'a longtemps qu'on fait d'la politique, vingt ans de guerre contre les moustiques

je ne me sens pas intrépide, quand il fait frais j'fais pas du ski
j'ai pas d'motel aux Laurentides, le samedi c'est l'soir du hockey

il y'a longtemps qu'on fait d'la politique, vingt ans de guerre contre les moustiques

la la la etc.

The bit about ‘la politique’ is a joke, seeing as the only politics the narrator’s interested in is the battle against mosquitos (though admittedly this is a serious enough concern during the Canadian summer!).

Je n’ me regarde pas dans les vitrines – when it’s 33 degrees C minus zero, people run from metro to metro and have no time to look in window panes to see if their hair is right or what is in the windows.

J’ai pas d’ motel aux Laurentides – People tend to have a small second house up in the Laurentides, north of Montreal, mainly to ski. In summer there’s a lot of mosquitos.

S’adonner means to like each other very much in a familiar way: to be fond of each other. We are all brothers because we are all fond of each other (i.e. the singer and her friends) Ça = that = (here) part of colloquial or vernacular : the people or thing we are talking about = us (used because it is ‘logical’, ‘goes without saying’, this exists in France as well).

le dimanche on promène son chien – We don’t do anything sinful on Sundays.

Translation (found on the web):

me, I walk along Ste Catherine
getting the warmth from the Métro
I don’t look through shop windows
when it’s thirty below zero
we’ve been in politics for a long time
twenty years of war against mosquitos
I don’t feel intrepid
when it snows I don’t go skiing
I don’t have a motel in the Laurentians
saturday night is hockey night
we’ve been in politics for a long time
twenty years of war against mosquitos
don’t think that I’m an fool
because I don’t drive a convertible
the glory is fairly useless
at the price of gas (petrol) it’s too distressing
we’ve been in politics for a long time
twenty years of war against mosquitos
we’re all brothers ’cause we devote ourselves
to always having a good time
because we’re on the earth of men
and women and children
we’ve been in politics for a long time
twenty years of war against mosquitos
don’t believe that we’re not Christians
on Sundays we walk our dogs

Some commentary from the web:

Ste Catherine is the name of Montreal’s main shopping street. It’s also the name of a metro station, but you ‘profite de la chaleur du métro"’ when you’re above ground, standing atop the exhaust vents that pump out stale hot air from the subway.

THERE GOES MY BABE
(Neil Young)

the end has come
the sky has lost it's sun
the harm is done
he was the only one

there goes my babe
there goes what might have been
there goes my babe
in the cool morning rain
and now my heart
lies empty and still again

if he were here
I'd long to hold him near
but now it's clear
the price of love is dear

there goes my babe
there goes what might have been
there goes my babe
in the cool morning rain
and now my heart
lies empty and still again

Edit 2b for headphones. Otis Redding and his beautiful version of "That's how strong my love is".
I made a new edit, with more bass. Copyright problems, hence this kind of video.
Enjoy!
No sounds were added, it's Otis' bass man...

""That's How Strong My Love Is" was a hit debut song by deep soul singer O.V. Wright in 1964. The single was a hit on the American R&B chart.
The song was written by Wright's manager and publicist at the time, Roosevelt Jamison, who came from a gospel music background" (Wikipedia). It is very clear Roosevelt wrote the song with God in his thoughts: the whole song is about how big God is, how great His love is, how much power He has. Love the text, it is the truth...

"The song is a soulful love ballad and has been covered many times since, most notably by Otis Redding in 1965 and appears on his album The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads. Three other version of the song were recorded in 1965, one by The Rolling Stones on their album Out of Our Heads, a second by The In Crowd, released as a single and the third by The Hollies on their self-titled album "The Hollies"" (Wikipedia).

THAT'S HOW STRONG MY LOVE IS
(Roosevelt Jamison)

If I was the sun way up there
I'd go with love most everywhere
I'll be the moon when the sun goes down
Just to let you know that I'm still around

That's how strong my love is, oh
That's how strong my love is,
That's how strong my love is, baby, baby,
That's how strong my love is.

I'll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
You can go swimming when you're here
I'll be the rainbow when the sun is gone
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm

That's how strong my love is, darling,
That's how strong my love is, baby,
That's how strong my love is, oooh,
That's how strong my love is.

I'll be the ocean so deep and wide
I'll get out the tears whenever you cry,
I'll be the breeze after the storm is gone
To dry your eyes and love you warm

That's how strong my love is, baby,
That's how strong my love is,
That's how strong my love is, darling,
That's how strong my love is,

That's how strong my love is, so deep in,
Well, that's how strong my love is
So much love, yes so much love, oohh,
Yes so much love, yes so much love,
Anything that I can do, I'll be good for you,
Any kind of love you want, I'll be with you....

Edit for headphones, June 2021. The song was released on the 1960 album "Love You So...", also onthe three cd box "Amazing Early 60s Box: 88 Hard-To-Find Hits" (Complete 60s – 12201).

Rolan Webster Holden (August 7, 1939 – January 22, 1997) was an American pop and rhythm and blues singer from Seattle, Washington. He appeared on The Lloyd Thaxton Show, Mike Douglas Show, American Bandstand and The Dick Clark Show. He performed at the Apollo Theater with artists Jackie Wilson, the Crests and Redd Foxx. Most notable were USO tour-stops with Elvis Presley, Pat Boone and Connie Francis.

Between 1958 and 1965 Ron toured with Hank Ballard & the Midnighters, James Brown, Brook Benton, Etta James, Cleve Duncan & the Penguins, Rosie and the Originals, the 5 Royales, the Coasters, Freddy Cannon, the Crests, Marvin & Johnny, Don and Dewey, Big Joe Turner, Marv Johnson, Mickey & Silvia, Harvey Fuqua & the Moonglows, Jimmy Clanton, the Olympics, Donnie Brooks and Bill Haley.

In 1969, Ron, as singer/entertainer, formed a six piece rock and R&B band: Ron Holden & Good News, performing at various clubs and festivals in the Seattle/Tacoma area for about eight months. The members were Charles Jefferson (trumpet), Bob Cozzetti (trumpet), Tim Gemmill (tenor sax-ouch!-phone & flute), Steve Swartz (drums), Toby Cyer (electric guitar) and Bruce Ransom (electric bass & guitar).

Ron was discovered by Larry Nelson. Ron spread the rumor that he had been heard singing by Nelson while being held in the King County jail after being arrested for marijuana and alcohol possession, but the story has not been confirmed. In 1959 Holden recorded the single "Love You So", peaking at #11 on the R&B Singles chart and #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1960. Donna Records, owned by record company producer Bob Keane, bought the rights to Holden's recordings shortly after and issued a full LP entitled "Love You So"; this record was re-issued by Del-Fi Records in 1994. Holden returned to the charts in 1974 with "Can You Talk?" (US R&B #49).

LOVE YOU SO
(Ron Holden)

ahh my darling I love you so
more than you'll ever know
each night I kneel and say a prayer
hoping when I wake you'll still be there
I need your love with all my heart
promise me we'll never part
we have a love that's sure to be
true love for all eternity

always remember my love is true
no matter what I may do
and stay in this heart of mine
until the very end of time

my dearest I beg of you
to keep this love so plain and true
I ask the Lord, Lord up above
to never take away our love
no matter what I may do
remember my love is true
we have a love that's sure to be
true love, for all eternity
wow wow wow oh oooh woo wooo

Edit 2 for headphones of the mono single. Some more bass on this one. A number one hit twice in Holland: in 1970, and in 1980 with the live version. #1 New Zealand, #2 UK, #2 Canada, #2 Germany, #4 Australia and # 9 in what's wrong with U, SA ?
Again the source file is (the mono version) from the great quality album "The Kinks Remastered" (1995 Castle cd # 268).

The line "You drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola" was recorded as "it tastes just like Coca-Cola." The BBC refused to play it because of the commercial reference, so Ray Davies flew from New York to London to change the lyric and get the song on the air.
(By the way: I like cherry cola the best.)

The Kinks were not the first to sing about Lola and Cola; an anti prohibition song from 1918 (amongst others sung by Edward Meeker) has the line: "At the table with Lola they will serve us Coca-Cola." The song is: "Ev'ry Day'll Be Sunday When The Town Goes Dry".

Ray Davies wrote the lyrics after the Kinks' manager got drunk at a club and started dancing with what he thought was a woman.

Dave Davies stated he deserved a songwriting credit on the track, leading to additional friction with his brother Ray, who got the sole composer credit. This is what has always bothered me: how can Jagger/Richards take all the credits, when it is a GROUP'S thing? How can one even bypass his brother in such things. I just don't understand it...

LOLA
(Ray Davies)

I met her in a club down in North Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola
C-O-L-A cola

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walk like a woman and talk like a man
Oh my Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Well, we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
And said, "Little boy won't you come home with me?"

Well, I'm not the world's most passionate guy
But when I looked in her eyes
Well, I almost fell for my Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Lola lo lo lo lo Lola lo lo lo lo Lola

I pushed her away, I walked to the door
I fell to the floor, I got down on my knees
I looked at her, and she at me

Well that's the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola

Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls
It's a mixed-up, muddled-up, shook-up world
Except for Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Well I left home just a week before
And I've never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said, "Little boy, gonna make you a man"

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man
And so is Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lo

SAD DAY
(Jagger/Richards)

someone woke me up this mornin' and I lit a cigarette
found myself when I stopped yawnin', started getting myself dressed
then I felt I had a dream, I remembered the things I'd seen
I could still hear the things you said with that bad dream in my head
it was a sad day, bad day, sad day, bad day

so I called you on the phone and your friend said "she's not home"
so I told her where I'd be at and that you should call me back
then I looked at the morning mail, I was not even expecting a bill
your letter a-started "Dear", and it left me with these tears.
it was a sad day, bad day, sad day, bad day

think of the times that we had rows, but we patched them up somehow
think of the times I tried to go, but you screamed and told me no
there is only one thing in this world that I can't understand, that's a girl
I keep a-readin' the things you said, like a bad dream in my head
it was a sad day, bad day, sad day, bad day

oh, what a sad, sad, old day - a sad, old day
it was a sad, old day
a sad, old day. It was a bad, old day, sad old day a bad old day
if there is one awful thing in this world that I can't understand, that's a girl
it was a sad, sad old day, sad old day
it was a sad, old day
