Grab your guitar and join me in learning the whole of this fantastic Beatles tune. An absolute classic riff and really fun solo to play. This is one I always reccomend my students to learn.Day Tripper" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles that was released as a double A-side single with "We Can Work It Out" in December 1965. The song was written primarily by John Lennon with some contributions from Paul McCartney and was credited to the Lennon–McCartney partnership. Both songs were recorded during the sessions for the band's Rubber Soul album. The single topped charts in Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands and Norway. In the United States, "Day Tripper" peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and "We Can Work It Out" held the top position. "Day Tripper" is a rock song based around an electric guitar riff and drawing on the influence of American soul music. The Beatles included it in their concert set-list until their retirement from live performances in late August 1966.If you find this stuff useful leave me a review on Spotify or Apple PodcastsBecome a Blues Guitar Show Member: https://www.buzzsprout.com/950998/subscribeShoot me a question to cover in the upcoming episodes by emailing email@example.comFollow me on instagram @bluesguitarshowpodcastSupport the show
Phil Collins wrapped up his commitments as front man and percussionist for Genesis and collaborative work with Eric Clapton in 1984, then commenced work on his third album, No Jacket Required. It was released in February 1985, and had hits on the charts in July. The name of the album was inspired by an incident where he was not allowed into The Pump Room restaurant in Chicago because he did not have the proper dress code jacket. His friend, vocalist Robert Plant, did have the correct attire and was let in. After he relayed the story in appearances with late night hosts David Letterman and Johnny Carson, restaurant management sent Phil a complementary sport jacket and apology letter, inviting him to come back wearing “whatever he wanted.”Unlike previous albums Collins decided to make this third solo album more upbeat with several dance-oriented singles. Collins was also able to recruit a number of musicians to the effort, including former Genesis bandmate Peter Gabriel and Police front man Sting.The result was a huge commercial success, reaching number 1 on the US albums chart for seven consecutive weeks and on the UK albums chart for five. The four singles released all went into the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, with two topping the charts. It was a critical success as well, bringing home three Grammy awards including “Album of the Year.” Collins would move from a successful musician to a celebrity on the strength of this album, which would be his highest selling solo effort.Rob brings us this album for our podcastOnly You Know and I KnowRob starts us with a deeper cut co-written by Phil Collins and Darryl Stuermer. Stuermer played bass for Genesis tours, and lead guitar for Collins' solo tours. The lyrics contain a number of contradictions. “When I ask you, what you see in me you say, 'Our love is blind.'”Don't Lose My NumberWhile this song was not released as a single in the UK, it went to number 4 on the US charts. The lyrics were created in a stream-of-consciousness improvisation session, and Collins himself doesn't really know what they mean. The video is a comedic look at the decision process on theming the video, with Collins in multiple parodies of other videos popular at the time.Inside OutThis track has a feel similar to some of the slower Genesis pieces. The lyrics describe a person who faces a crowd of people telling him what to say and what to do without regard to what is authentically himself. Collins uses a combination of drum machine and drum kit on this song.We Said Hello GoodbyeThis song was not originally on the album, but was a B-side to the single release of "Take Me Home" and "Don't Lose My Number" as well as a bonus track on the CD. The lyrics discuss leaving an old home and moving to a new one, but the emotions may reflect things left behind in life more broadly. ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Main Theme from the motion picture “Back to the Future”Marty McFly made his journey back from 1985 to interact with his 1955 parents in a tricked out DeLorean for this iconic picture released in 1985. STAFF PICKS:You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) by Dead or Alive We're a bit concerned about Wayne as he abandons his punk and hard rock sensibilities to bring us this danceable hit. Dead or Alive were a foursome from Liverpool, England. Lead singer Pete Burns would later be on the TV reality show “Celebrity Big Brother.”The Confessor by Joe WalshBruce brings us the title song from Walsh's seventh studio album. It is heavier and darker than many of Walsh's singles. “If you look at your reflection at the bottom of the well, what you see is only on the surface. When you try to see the meaning hidden underneath the measure of the depth can be deceiving. The bottom has a rocky reputation.” Raspberry Beret by Prince and the Revolution Lynch features a song about young romance and a summer fling. Although this song was released after Prince's success with “Purple Rain,” Prince still played most of the instruments, making the song primarily a solo effort. It is off off the album “Around the World In a Day,” and reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.And She Was by Talking Heads Rob finishes the staff picks with a song penned by David Byrne from the Talking Heads, off the album “Little Creatures.” It is an unusual song about a girl levitating over everything, and the guy who loves her and wishes she would come down to the ground. It reached number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100. INSTRUMENTAL TRACK:Fundance by Stanley Jordan Finger tapping jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan would set a record when his album “Magic Touch” spent 51 weeks at the top of the Billboard jazz charts.

"Sounds of '91: Jerry Garcia Band Live and Marijuana News Unveiled"Larry Mishkin focuses on Jerry Garcia music and breaking stories related to marijuana. He introduces a Jerry Garcia Band performance from November 15, 1991, at Madison Square Garden and delves into the details of the songs performed, particularly highlighting "How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You" and a cover of Bob Dylan's "Simple Twist of Fate." Amidst the music commentary, Larry also addresses significant marijuana-related news, emphasizing recent studies suggesting a potential connection between marijuana use and heart issues. He, however, points out limitations in the studies and emphasizes the need for a more comprehensive examination of the subject..Produced by PodConx Deadhead Cannabis Show - https://podconx.com/podcasts/deadhead-cannabis-showLarry Mishkin - https://podconx.com/guests/larry-mishkinRob Hunt - https://podconx.com/guests/rob-huntJay Blakesberg - https://podconx.com/guests/jay-blakesbergSound Designed by Jamie Humiston - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamie-humiston-91718b1b3/Recorded on Squadcast Jerry Garcia BandNovember 15, 1991MSGNY, NYJerry Garcia Band 1991-11-15 FOB Schoeps Brotman Metchick Anon Noel t-flac1648 : Joe Noel : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive INTRO: How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You Track No. 2 0:00 – 1:30 How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" is a song recorded by American soul singer Marvin Gaye from his fifth studio album of the same name (1965). It was written in 1964 by the Motown songwriting team of Holland–Dozier–Holland, and produced by Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier. The song title was inspired by one of the actor and comedian Jackie Gleason's signature phrases, "How Sweet It Is!" Released on Nov. 4, 1964 with Forever on the B-side. Cash Box described it as "a medium-paced, rollicking chorus-backed ode about a fella who's on top of the world since he met up with Miss Right."AllMusic critic Jason Ankeny described the song as a "radiant pop confection," noting that it was unusual for Gaye in being a "straightforward love song" that doesn't reflect Gaye's usual demons. Ankeny commented on the soulfulness of the song, and particularly noted the piano riff. James Taylor released his version of "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" as the lead single from his album Gorilla (1975).Taylor's 1975 single has been the most successful remake of the song to date, hitting number one on the Easy Listening chart and number five on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. Long a staple of the JGB's set lists, First played on September 18, 1975 a Sophie's in Palo AltoLast played on April 23, 1995 at the Warfield Theater in S.F.Total played 373 times, by far the JGB's most played tune (Midnight Moonlight is 2d at 344) Usually a show opener. There are three Dead shows on Nov. 13 and six JGB shows. Of those six, none are available on Archivd.org. So I am dong a JGB show two days later on Nov. 15, 1991 from MSG. The standard JGB lineup for that time: Jerry Garcia; guitar, vocals- John Kahn; bass- Melvin Seals; keyboards- David Kemper; drums- Jaclyn LaBranch; backing vocals- Gloria Jones; backing vocals Great musicians, great vocals, its 1991, but Jerry is rocking. A fun night with Blues Traveler as the opening act. This show was released as Garcia Live Vol. 16 SHOW #1: Simple Twist of Fate Track No. 5 3:00 – 4:40 In 1975, Bob Dylan released his album Blood on the Tracks, which included the song “Simple Twist of Fate.” The song is a haunting ballad about a failed relationship, and many fans have speculated about who Dylan wrote it about. While Dylan has never confirmed the identity of the song's subject, many believe that he wrote it about his former girlfriend, Joan Baez. Bob Dylan's message is one of hope and change. He speaks of a world that is better than the one we currently live in and urges people to work together to make it a reality. He also advocates for peace and love, and has said that these are the only things that can truly change the world. Always a big fan of Dylan, Garcia played this song 217 times, the first on July 4, 1976 at the Great American Music Hall in S.F. and the last on April 23, 1995 at the Warfield in S.F. If you are wondering why that April 23, 1995 dates keeps popping up, that was the last JGB show. SHOW #2: Lay Down Sally Track No. 6 1:40 – 3:15 "Lay Down Sally" is a song performed by Eric Clapton, and written by Clapton, Marcy Levy, and George Terry. It appeared on his November 1977 album Slowhand, and reached No. 3 on the BillboardHot 100 chart. It was released as a single with Cocaine on the B-side, quite the heavy hitting release. It was the song of the summer of 1978 and always one of Slow Hand's favorite songs. "Lay Down Sally" is a country blues song performed in the style of J. J. Cale. Clapton explained, "It's as close as I can get, being English, but the band being a Tulsa band, they play like that naturally. You couldn't get them to do an English rock sound, no way. Their idea of a driving beat isn't being loud or anything. It's subtle."Billboard magazine described Clapton's vocal as "low key but earthy" and also praised Marcy Levy's backing vocals.Cash Box praised Clapton's "guitar finesse."JGB covered the tune 54 timesFirst: November 20, 1990 Warfield, SFLast: March 4, 1995 Warfield, SF Gets a great crowd reaction and Jerry loves jamming on Clapton tunes. Link to picture of Garcia and Clapton from back in the day: Jerry Garcia & Eric Clapton Pose | Grateful Dead Clapton interviewed on the Dead in 1968:Have you heard the Grateful Dead record?A: “Yeah, it's great.” Peter Townshend said he saw the Dead at the Pop Festival, and called them “one of the original ropeys.” A: “Ropey! That means a drag. I don't think the quality of their music is as high as a lot of other good recording bands. People are more concerned with live music, maybe, than with recording. I'm not sure of that. I'm guessing. If the Grateful Dead are one of the best, they're not doing a very good job on record.”What do you think of the guitar playing? Jerry Garcia's synthesis of blues, jazz and country and western, with a little jug band thrown in?A: “It's very good, and very tight, but it's not really my bag.” SHOW #3: Deal Track No. 9 2:46 – 4:15 Finally, a Garcia tune! And one of his best.One of the Grateful Dead's live staples, and many gambling songs is the Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia collaboration, “Deal”. First performed on February 19th, 1971, the song was in regular rotation until the end, both for the Dead and the Jerry Garcia Band.“Deal” saw studio release as the opening track to Jerry Garcia's 1972 debut solo album, Garcia, which also contained several other classic Grateful Dead live songs including “Sugaree”, “Bird Song”, “Loser”, and “The Wheel”. It's also worth noting that the classic folk song, “Don't Let Your Deal Go Down”, first recorded in 1925 by Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers contains many similarities to the Grateful Dead song. Hunter was known to pull references from a wide variety of sources in his songwriting, and it is highly likely he was familiar with the tune. JGB played it 291 times in concert. First on March 4, 1978 at the Keystone in Palo Alto, CALast time on April 23, 1995 at the Warfield Grateful Dead played it 422 timesFirst on Feb. 19, 1971 at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NYLast on June 18, 1995 at Giant's Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.Longest absence from the rotation was 29 shows from Oct. 2, 1988 at Shoreline in lovely Mountain View, CA and then not again until April 11, 1989 at the Rosemont Horizon in Rosemont, IL You had to be trying really hard, or just be really unlucky to never catch this tune during those days. I still say it is the best Garcia tune, great music, great tempo, Jerry loved to jam on this tune and his voice really made the song. Almost always a first set closer. SHOW #4: Ain't No Bread In The Breadbox Track No. 14 1:22 – 3:02 Written by Phillip Jackson (September 28, 1951 – October 30, 2009), best known as Norton Buffalo, was an American singer-songwriter, countryand blues harmonica player, record producer, bandleader and recording artist who was a versatile proponent of the harmonica, including chromatic and diatonic. In early 1976 Buffalo joined the "farewell" European tour of Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, and was recorded on the band's final live album We've Got a Live One Here!, which included Buffalo's song "Eighteen Wheels." After the tour, Buffalo returned to California, briefly played with a number of local bands, and later in 1976 he joined the Steve Miller Band's Fly Like an Eagle Tour. He also played harmonica on the band's hit follow-up album Book of Dreams, released in May 1977. Buffalo appeared on the tracks "Winter Time" and "The Stake." By the late 1970s Buffalo had formed his own band, The Stampede, and recorded two Capitol Records albums: Lovin' in the Valley of the Moon and Desert Horizon. In 1977 his harmonica work appeared on Bonnie Raitt's Sweet Forgiveness and The Doobie Brothers' Livin' on the Fault Line albums. He was a member of the Mickey Hart band High Noon in the late 70s and early 80s with Merl Saunders, Mike Hinton, Jim McPhearson, Vicki Randle, and Bobby Vega, and played with Saunders on the Rainforest Band album It's in the Air in 1993. Ain't No Bread In The Breadbox was performed 65 times by the Jerry Garcia Band.First time on Nov. 6, 1991at the Cap Center in Landover, MD (just 9 days earlier but this was already the band's 7th performance of the tune. Jerry really liked it. The song was played by Phil Lesh with Norton Buffalo, Boz Scaggs and others in 2004. The song was also played by Billy & The Kids in 2021. OUTRO: What A Wonderful World Track No. 19 1:55 – 3:37 "What a Wonderful World" is a song written by Bob Thiele (as "George Douglas") and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released in 1967 as a single. In April 1968, it topped the pop chart in the United Kingdom, but performed poorly in the United States because Larry Newton, the president of ABC Records, disliked the song and refused to promote it.After it was heard in the film Good Morning, Vietnam, it was reissued as a single in 1988, and rose to number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100. Armstrong's recording was inducted to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.In Graham Nash's book Off the Record: Songwriters on Songwriting, George Weiss says he wrote the song specifically for Louis Armstrong, as he was inspired by Armstrong's ability to bring together people of different races. JGB played the song 12 times in concertFirst was on Nov. 6. 1991 at the Cap Centre in Maryland (again, just 9 days before this show, this was the band's 4th performance of the tuneLast Oct. 31, 1992 at Oakland Alameda County Colisium.Just in the rotation for one year.But who can't love Jerry channeling his inner Louis Armstrong and harmonizing the Jackie and Gloria. A great way to end a show and send everyone home with a smile and warm fuzzy feeling.A perfect night with Jerry.

The Black Crowes got their start as “Mr. Crowe's Garden” when Chris and Rich Robinson formed the band while attending Walton High School in Marietta, Georgia. The name comes from the children's book “Johnny Crow's Garden” by Leonard Leslie Brooke. They changed their name after moving to New York City where they met producer George Drakoulias who introduced them to music like The Faces and Humble Pie, and signed them at Def American. Their debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, gets its name from an old Elmore James blues song, though that song does not appear on the album. It was recorded in the summer of 1989 in Atlanta and Los Angeles. This debut turned out to be a rocket of an album, peaking at number 4 on the Billboard 200, and it has sold over 5 million copies. Readers of Rolling Stone magazine voted the Black Crowes “Best New American Band” at the end of 1990.The Black Crowes are often compared to late 60's and early 70's acts like the Faces and the Rolling Stones. The group at the time consisted of Chris Robinson on vocals, Rich Robinson on guitar, Jeff Cease on guitar (the only Black Crowes album for which he would be a member), Johnny Colt on bass and Steve Gorman on drums.The group would break up a couple of times, and reformed for a third time in 2019. They released an EP of newly recorded tracks called 1972 which consists of covers of songs released in 1972. They released a double live album in 2023 called Shake Your Money Maker Live.Bruce presents this album which reinterprets the blues. Jealous AgainThe debut single from the band and the album would reach number 75 on the Billboard Hot 100, and number 5 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks charts. The song is about jealousy and the inner turmoil that it causes. There was a lawsuit against Gretchen Wilson for her song “Work Hard, Play Harder,” which was settled out of court. Chris and Rich Robinson were given songwriting credits for the track, along with an undisclosed sum in the settlement.Struttin' BluesThis deep cut will be unfamiliar to those who haven't played the album or CD, but it gives you a good flavor for the album as a whole. It is pretty much a straightforward blues piece. “My baby got her engine hummin' Struttin' blues gonna' find me again.”Twice As HardThis is the starting track to the album. The lyrics are about the difficulties of leaving a relationship for the second time, or perhaps about getting off drugs. One theory is that it is a little of both, with the first time being when the guy leaves his love over her use of drugs, and the second time when he says goodbye at her funeral. She Talks to AngelsOne of the bigger hits from the album, this song reached number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 on the Albums tracks. The riff and the lyrics are older, going back to their early days. The picture of the girl is an amalgam of girls they saw at clubs in Atlanta who would dress goth. Much of the lyrics were written early in Chris and Rich Robinson's life when hey really hadn't lived the drug lifestyle that they talk about. The song inspired Hootie and The Blowfish's song “Let Her Cry.” ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Main theme from the television series “Twin Peaks”David Lynch's quirky show got its start in this month. STAFF PICKS:Big Blue '82 by Daniella DaxWayne gets the staff pick party hopping with this deep but danceable cut. Danielle Dax is an experimental musician from England who tells a simple story of being newly in love with this song. Although not as well known in the States, Dax was big in the club circuit in Europe before switching to a career in interior design in 1996.Nothing Compares 2 by Sinead O'ConnorLynch brings us the unmistakable sound of O'Connor's biggest hit and cover of a song originally penned and performed by Prince. While the original was a funk and soul ballad, O'Connor strips the ballad down to a raw, emotional piece focusing on her powerful vocals.Big Love by Robert Plant Rob features Led Zeppelin's vocalist on a track from his third album, “Manic Nirvana.” This was the playful first single, and is filled with double entendres. Sexual innuendoes were common in Led Zeppelin songs, so this continues the tradition. It is about an affair with a flight attendant when it references “free air miles.” Kiss This Thing Goodbye by Del AmitriBruce closes out the staff picks with a shuffle beat song off Del Amitri's second studio album, “Waking Hours.” Del Amitri will be better known to U.S. listeners for their 1995 single, “Roll to Me.” This song tells the tale of a love that has been over for a while, and the couple need to make the decision to move on.

James Blunt recorded "You're Beautiful" for his debut album in 2003, released it the following year, and by 2006 it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100. (The song stayed on the charts for a total of 38 weeks.) Twenty years later, he looks back on his past in two new projects: his seventh album, Who We Used to Be; and the book, Loosely Based On A Made-Up Story: A Non-Memoir. Blunt joins us.
One of the big acts on the 80's glam metal scene was Cinderella. Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tom Keifer and bassist Eric Brittingham formed the band in suburban Philadelphia. Gene Simmons of Kiss tried to get the band a deal with PolyGram, but was unsuccessful at getting the label to take interest. Jon Bon Jovi was more successful with getting them a contract with Mercury/Polygram Records. Keifer and Brittingham added guitarist Jeff LaBar and drummer Jim Drnec to the band. Their debut album entitled Night Songs was released in 1986, and it achieved triple platinum status. Shortly after the recording of that album, Jim Drnec left the group. This, their follow-up album Long Cold Winter, would continue the band's progression in the glam metal genre, but would see a subtle shift towards more blues rock. It would also see the introduction of Fred Coury as drummer for the group, though this would come after the album was recorded utilizing percussionist Cozy Powell for almost all tracks on the album. This second studio album would be a commercial success as well, reaching number 10 on the US charts and achieving double platinum status before the end of the year. The album included the rock ballad “Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone),”which would reach number 12 on the Billboard charts, the highest charting single for the band. Video was a significant factor in the success of the band, and they released a video compilation in 1990 called “Tales from the Gypsy Road” featuring their promo videos and live medleys.Cinderella would be predominantly an opening band through the late 80's and early 90's, touring with Poison, Bon Jovi, and David Lee Roth. Unfortunately the band would decline by the mid 90's due to various setbacks and drama with personnel as well as shifting popularity in the music industry. Their last performance was in 2014.Break out the hair spray as Wayne leads us through this album. Bad Seamstress Blues/Fallin' Apart at the SeamsThe leading track to the album starts with an acoustic blues number paired with a heavier blues song, complete with slide guitar and harmonica. The lyrics are of a life that has come full circle. No regrets, but a mixture of success and sorrow. “Look in the mirror at what I found, It's just the past and it's over now.”Gypsy RoadThese lyrics discuss perseverance to achieve success, but also the loneliness and doubt that come with realizing that dream. The song is a composite of a life on the road, complete with hotel rooms and overnight rides on the tour bus.

The industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails is the creation of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Trent Reznor. While living in Cleveland in 1987, Reznor worked as an assistant engineer and janitor at Right Track Studios. He had free access to the studio between bookings, and took inspiration from Prince to play all instruments himself to produce his material. The name Nine Inch Nails comes from a quote by Al Jourgensen, lead singer of the metal band Ministry - "Listening to Ministry is like having a nine inch nail hammered into your head like a hole." The debut studio album entitled Pretty Hate Machine was released by TVT Records in October 1989. It has an industrial synth feel, with dark lyrics driven by angst, despair, and betrayal. Unlike much of the industrial rock of the time, songs on Pretty Hate Machine feature catchy riffs and hooks, and the song structure employs a traditional verse and chorus approach rather than continually repeating electronics. The result would prove to be both a commercial and critical success, reaching number 75 on the US album charts.Although Reznor produced and performed all the instrumentation on the album, he soon found himself in need of a touring band, particularly when he was brought in to open for Guns N' Roses on their European Tour. Many musicians have been brought into the Nine Inch Nails over the years, but Reznor remained the only permanent member until his frequent collaborator, Atticus Ross, was brought in as a member in 2016.Lynch brings us this pioneering industrial rock album for this week's podcast. Head Like a HoleThe opening track to the album was the second and most commercially successful single, reaching number 28 on the US Alternative Airplay charts. It also took inspiration from the quote from Al Jourgensen of Ministry. The song is about the control that money has over people and the pain and suffering associated with it. Terrible LieThis song reflects the anger and despair of a person going through a bad time in their life and blaming it on God. "(Hey god) why are you doing this to me? Am I not living up to what I'm supposed to be? Why am I seething with this animosity? (Hey god) I think you owe me a great big apology."SinWhen we give in to our darker impulses, perhaps driven by desire or betrayal, we can find ourselves in a spiral of self-destruction and sabotage. The song is about the pain and destructiveness that can lurk below the surface.Down In ItThis is the debut single from the album. During the making of the video, a camera attached to a weather balloon became detached and flew 200 miles away. When found in a farmer's field the FBI was called in to investigate what appeared to be a gang or cult slaying of Reznor. ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Main theme from the motion picture "Christmas Vacation 3" The success of "Christmas Vacation" inspired a number of sequels. STAFF PICKS:Higher Ground by the Red Hot Chili PeppersRob's staff pick is a cover of a song Stevie Wonder originally released in 1973. While the original went to number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, the energetic remake by the Red Hot Chili Peppers also achieved commercial success, reaching number 26 on the US Mainstream Rock chart. It was the first RHCP song to chart.Bad Love by Eric ClaptonBruce brings us the second single from Clapton's eleventh solo studio album. This is a comeback album, as Clapton had recently become sober after dealing with alcoholism. It hit number 16 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. This song features Phil Collins on percussion and backing vocals. and would be awarded the Grammy for Best male Rock Vocal Performance in 1990. Good Work by the BoDeansWayne features a rockabilly party song from a Wisconsin group. The BoDeans have been called roots rock, heartland rock, and alternative, but their retro 50's sound and driving live performance makes them a great band to see. They performed extensively with U2 on The Joshua Tree tour, and remain popular in the US Midwest.The Last Worthless Evening by Don HenleyLynch closes out the staff picks with a hit from Henley's album "The End of the Innocence" that went to number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The lyrics are a plea from an ex to just move on. INSTRUMENTAL TRACK:Pacific 202 by 808 StateThis Manchester electronic music group takes its name from the Roland TR 808 drum machine.

OK, EWF fans, here's one of the pinnacles of the group's career, presented on a gorgeous promo copy. This was their first chart-topper on both the Pop and Black Billboard charts, was their first Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and turned out to be the biggest hit of their long career! Quite a lot of accomplishments for one little 45. From the arresting funk guitar line at the beginning, to the arresting a capella vocals at the end, the fun just doesn't stop. (Oh, and did I mention that all the action takes place in less than 3 minutes? That's a 45!) With this single, it was clear that Maurice White & the band had finally found their own unique groove.... and aren't we all fortunate that they did!

Each Halloween season, All Things Judicial releases a special "Fright Court" episode, where the focus turns to ghostly legends associated with North Carolina's courthouses and legal community. IThis year, we focus on courthouse ghosts in New Hanover and Mitchell counties, and dive into the folklore of the 1866 murder of Laura Foster and subsequent trial and execution of her accused killer, Tom Dula (Dooley). This story became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon beginning in 1958 when the Kingston Trio released a murder ballad which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart."I've always believed that the hanging of Tom Dooley here in our little town of Statesville, North Carolina is the most widely recognized execution in U.S. history," said Steve Hill, curator of the Statesville Historical Collection. "Everybody wanted to make a dollar off of Tom Dooley while they could, and a lot of people did." The first segment of this episode is an interview with John Hirchak, who, along with his wife Kim, operate the Ghost Walk of Old Wilmington and The Black Cat Shoppe. Hirchak shares stories about three spirits who occupy the historic New Hanover County Courthouse, and we discuss possible explanations for hauntings.The second segment is a dramatic reading of an article published by the Mitchell County Historical Society which details firsthand accounts of seeing and hearing a ghost which haunts the historic Mitchell County Courthouse.In the third segment, we meet Margaret Ferguson Carter Martine from the Whippoorwill Academy and Village in Wilkes County. She recounts the Dooley story and shares her personal connection to a key figure in that historic event.Then we travel to Iredell County where we meet Keith Ryan, Director of the Historic Sharpe House. He shares details about May 1, 1868, the fateful day Tom Dooley was hanged in Statesville.In the final interview of this episode, we meet Steve Hill, curator of the Statesville Historical Collection. He provides insight into the worldwide impact of the Dooley story.You can find out more about All Things Judicial or hear previous episodes in the Fright Court series by visiting NCcourts.gov.
It's time for another edition of our series Chartbreakers, where we take a look at the trends and shakeups happening on the Billboard Hot 100. This week, however, the chart has been dominated by Drake and his album For All the Dogs, which takes up a grand total of 23 spots on the Hot 100. So, rather than do a story on that, Charlie and Nate take a look at the brand new TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart, established only last month. This chart – which measures the most popular songs on the platform through each song's number of videos, views, and user engagement – perhaps best shows the things that are popular and pervasive among a contingent of younger music listeners. Here, there's room for everybody from Mitski to Sexyy Red to J. Dash, highlighting that the music that's popular isn't necessarily what hits the radio.

Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran This is the breakthrough song off Duran Duran's Rio album. It was inspired by the Big Bad Wolf in the Little Red Riding Hood story. It is also wone of the first times where video popularity drove the success of the band, with Duran Duran on constant play for the new MTV station.Dead Man's Party by Oingo Boingo Danny Elfman fronted this new wave band before he became famous for his work on film scores.

While there Dee Dee Ramone wandered into the basement with a copy of King's "Pet Sematary" and returned an hour later with the lyrics to this song.Bad Things by Jace Everett "True Blood" is a series on HBO based on a novel called "The Southern Vampire Mysteries," and the show portrays vampires in a campy, dark comedy style. Country singer-songwriter Jace Everett provided the intro music to this series.Werewolf Bar Mitzvah by Donald Glover and Tracy Morgan A skit in the television series "30 Rock" would produce this song. Originally a 7-second clip from a skit, it was turned into a full fledged Halloween novelty song due to popular demand.Witch Doctor by David Seville The origins of this song go back to 1958, where Seville tells the story of how a guy learned to talk to girls from a witch doctor friend. It has become a well known novelty song covered by a number of artists.Devil in Disguise by Elvis Presley The King dropped this single in 1963 about a girl who uses her charm to manipulate people to get what she wants. It peaked at number 3 on the Billboard singles chart.You're Dead by Norma Tanega Singer-songwriter and experimental musician Norma Tanega was better known for writing songs for Dusty Springfield.

Charlie Daniels would peak at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 with this song.Runnin' with the Devil by Van Halen The first album that Van Halen produced was a monster in itself, and this track was the first one on the album. It is a great introduction to the band, not only for Eddie Van Halen's guitar work, but also for David Lee Roth's screams, Michael Anthony's high harmonies, and Alex Van Halen's percussion work.

"Middle-Aged and Older Patients Report Improved Health with Medical Marijuana"Larry Mishkin discusses a recent study from the University of Florida which shows that medical marijuana use can lead to lower pain levels and reduced dependency on opioids and psychiatric prescriptions among middle-aged and older chronic pain patients. Participants in the study reported improved physical and mental functioning, better sleep quality, and reduced anxiety. The research adds to the growing body of evidence supporting the therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis for pain management..Produced by PodConx Deadhead Cannabis Show - https://podconx.com/podcasts/deadhead-cannabis-showLarry Mishkin - https://podconx.com/guests/larry-mishkinRob Hunt - https://podconx.com/guests/rob-huntJay Blakesberg - https://podconx.com/guests/jay-blakesbergSound Designed by Jamie Humiston - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamie-humiston-91718b1b3/Recorded on Squadcast Grateful Dead, October 16, 1989, Melk Weg Club, Amsterdam, the NetherlandsGrateful Dead Live at Club Melk Weg on 1981-10-16 : Free Borrow & Streaming : Internet Archive Second of two night stand at this famous hash bar that only held about 500 people in the room in which the Dead performed. Very cool and famous club in Amsterdam, one of the best known hash bars. Went there one time in 1988 with good buddies Mikey and H. A highlight of our trip. Another good buddy, Freddie Burp, was spending the school year abroad in the fall of 1981 and was one of the lucky ones who were present for this show. He's a tough guy to get a hold of, but maybe some day I can get him on the show to talk about this concert. INTRO: The Race Is On Track No. 8 1:10 – 2:24 Show had an acoustic first set and an electric second set. Many of the songs in the acoustic set we featured a few weeks ago from the September, 1980 show at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco as part of the recordings for the Dead's Reckoning album. So I went with this one which has always been one of my favorites ever since my good buddy Mikey (who took me to three of my first four shows) used to play it for me as we drove through the northwoods of Wisconsin on nights out from the summer camp where we were spending the summer in 1981. "The Race Is On" is a song written by Don Rollins (not to be confused with the Don Rollins who co-wrote "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" for Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett) and made a hit on the country music charts by George Jones and on the pop and easy listening charts by the unrelated Jack Jones. George's version was the first single released from his 1965 album of the same name. Released as a single in September 1964, it peaked at number three on the BillboardHot Country Singles chart and at number 96 on the BillboardHot 100 in January 1965. Jack's version topped Billboard'sEasy Listening chart and reached number 15 on the Hot 100 the same year. The two recordings combined to reach number 12 on the Cashbox charts, which combined all covers of the same song in one listing and thus gave George Jones his only top-40 hit. The song uses thoroughbred horse racing as the metaphor for the singer's romantic relationships. Rockabilly artist Dave Edmunds, in collaboration with the Stray Cats, whose debut album Edmunds had recently produced, recorded a version for his 1981 album, Twangin.... Stray Cats drummer Slim Jim Phantom recalled Edmunds' affection for the song when he was courting the band to produce their debut album: "We met with Edmunds at his house. He had a little pub in his basement. He had a finished basement, outside of London. Edmunds had a jukebox, a little jukebox. He had 'The Race is On' and 'Rockabilly Boogie' by Johnny Burnette. He had those records in his jukebox. We all looked at each other and said, 'This is it.'" Phantom also recalled that the song took "one or two takes" in the studio.Thank you. Covered by: Jack Jones Loretta Lynn Alvin and the Chipmunks for their 1965 album, “Chipmunks a Go Go” Waylon Jennings The Georgia Satellites from 1965 debut album, “Keep The Faith” Elvis Costello And others Dead played it 60times in concert First: December 31, 1969 at Boston Tea Party in Boston Last: May 20, 1995 at Sam Boyd Silver Bowl, Las Vegas SHOW #1: Ripple Track No. 9 1:50 – 3:06 We prominently featured this song form the Warfield show and talked about how it was last played ever on Sept. 3, 1988 at the Cap Center. What makes this version we just listened to so special is that this was the last Ripple played by the Dead until the Cap Center show, a seven year gap, and that that was it, no more Ripple. So this is the last accoustic Ripple ever played since the Cap Center was electric. Maybe the most famous Dead tune ever, from American Beauty, Hunter's lyrics and Jerry's music mesh together in a way to make this tune not just one of the best Dead tunes ever, but one of the best tunes ever, IMHO! SHOW #2: Hully Gully Track No. 12 0:15 – 1:38 "(Baby) Hully Gully" is a song written by Fred Sledge Smith and Cliff Goldsmith and recorded by The Olympics, an American doo-wop group formed in 1957. Released in 1959 on the album, “Doin' the Hully Gully”, it peaked at number 72 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1960 and sparked the Hully Gully dance craze. Covered by: Buddy Guy Chubby Checkers The Ventures The Beach Boys Many others Peter Pan Peanut Butter add jingle in the 1980's The Dead's version of this song from this show is the only time they played it in concert. SHOW #3: Gloria Track No. 15 2:15 – 3:45 "Gloria" is a rock song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, and originally recorded by Morrison's band Them in 1964. It was released as the B-side of "Baby, Please Don't Go” on December 2, 1964. The song became a garage rock staple and a part of many rock bands' repertoires. According to Morrison, he wrote "Gloria" while performing with the Monarchs in Germany in the summer of 1963, at just about the time he turned 18 years old. He started to perform it at the Maritime Hotel when he returned to Belfast and joined up with the Gamblers to form the band Them. He would ad-lib lyrics as he performed, sometimes stretching the song to 15 or 20 minutes. After signing a contract with Dick Rowe and Decca, Them went to London for a recording session at Decca Three Studios in West Hampstead on 5 April 1964; "Gloria" was one of the seven songs recorded that day. Alan Henderson (guitar) contends that Them constituted the first rock group to use two drummers on a recording. Although some sources claim that Jimmy Page played second guitar, other sources deny this. Covered by: The Doors – The Doors performed the song several times in 1966 and 1967, with one recording released on Alive, She Cried (1983). It was also released as a single, which reached number 18 on Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and number 71 on Billboard Hot 100 in 1983. The song is included on Legacy: The Absolute Best (2003) and The Very Best of The Doors (2007). Patti Smith - Patti Smith recorded it for her album Horses in 1975. Based on the Van Morrison tune, the lyrics had been adapted from an early poem, 'Oath'. Smith's band had started to play the song live and merged it with the poem by 1974, so the song contained half of Smith's own words. For the recording of her debut album, Smith and her band recorded the song live and, after mixing, chose it as the album's opener. In 1993, Van Morrison recorded a version with John Lee Hooker, which reached the Top 40 in several countries. For the Dead, this was the first time they played it live in concert. They wound up playing it only a total of 14 times Last played on June 30, 1995 at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh I was lucky enough to catch it on June 25, 1992 at Soldier Field. SHOW #4: Turn On Your Lovelight Track No. 16 1:03 – 2:33 "Turn On Your Love Light" is a rhythm and blues song recorded by Bobby Bland in 1961. It was both an important R&B and pop chart hit for Bland and has become one of his most identifiable songs. A variety of artists have recorded it, including the Grateful Dead, who made it part of their concert repertoire. was written by band leader and arranger Joe Scott (with an additional credit given to Duke Records owner/producer Don Robey aka Deadric Malone). Scott's brass arrangement "upped the excitement ante" with "the groove picking up momentum as the horns and percussion talk to each other" and Bland's vocal "riding on top". In 1967, "Turn On Your Love Light" became a staple of Grateful Dead concerts, sung by Ron McKernan: a 15-minute rendition is on their 1969 double live album Live/Dead. McKernan's final performance of "Love Light" – complete with extended vocal raps – occurred at the Lyceum Theatre, London, during the Europe '72 tour. Versions with McKernan were often very long due to long vocal raps, instrumental jams, and drum solos throughout. A version performed at the 1969 Woodstock Festival lasted more than 45 minutes. The Grateful Dead later revived the song in the early 1980s with Bob Weir singing. Before this show at the Melk Weg, the last time the Dead had played it in concert was on May 24,1972 at the Lyceum Ballroom in London at the very end of the Europe '72 tour. In other words, this was the Dead's first performance of the song without Pigpen on lead. Dead went on to play it a lot after this show right up until the end. Bobby played it well, but never even tried the rap that Pig made famous in his extended versions. No Box Back Knitties when Bobby sang it. Dead played it 355 times in concert! Originally part of the Dark Star>St. Stephen>The Eleven>Lovelight suite of songs that the Dead played constantly during the primal Dead years in the late ‘60's. First played on August 4, 1967 at the O'Keefe Center in Toronto Last played on June 19, 1975 at Giants Stadium in New Jersey When my good buddy Marc started seeing the Dead in 1984, we joked that every time he went to a show they played Lovelight. Not a bad thing to be associated with. Always fun to hear it in concert even without Pig. OUTRO: Sugar Magnolia Track No. 20 6:30 – 8:05 One of the best Dead tunes of all time and the ultimate show closer. Always nice to add a little Sunshine Daydream to your day! The boys jam the hell out of it here, a 10+ minute version to close out a remarkable one of a kind Dead show. Either you were there or you missed it. What being a Deadhead is all about.
While the album Whitesnake may not be the debut album from the band Whitesnake, this self-titled seventh studio album might as well be a debut, as only two members were present from the previous album. Known in the UK as 1987, and in Japan as Serpens Albus, this album featured returning members John Sykes on guitars and backing vocals, and David Coverdale on lead vocals. Additionally Neil Murray was on bass, Aynsley Dunbar was on percussion, and Don Airey was on keyboards.David Coverdale was the lead singer for Deep Purple, and left the group in 1976. He did a couple of solo albums, the first of which was named “White Snake.” He formed the band Whitesnake as his backing band in 1978. They had a lot of success in the UK, Europe, and Japan with their early albums, but Coverdale wanted to break through in North America by the mid-80's. He started moving from a blues/hard rock sound to a more glam metal sound, starting with the album "Slide It In" in 1984, and fully embraced the heavy metal sound and hair band image with this album.Whitesnake would get significant airplay, with two singles going to number 1 (Here I Go Again) and number 2 (Is This Love?) on the Billboard US charts. Their videos would be staples of MTV, with prominent exposure of Tawny Kitaen, Coverdale's girlfriend and soon-to-be wife. The band would be broken up shortly after the album was complete, leaving David Coverdale as the sole member by the time they went on tour. This was despite the fact that John Sykes co-wrote all but two of the songs on the album. Get your hair metal on as Bruce puts his metal hair on, presenting this week's album. Bad BoysA deeper cut, this song is heavy on the rock and light on the significance of the lyrics. “Bad bad boys, getting wild in the street, wild in the city, I see you - you see me.” Much of the album has this heavy rock sound.Crying In the Rain '87This track that starts the album is a reworked song originally released by the group in 1982. The original is more bluesy and has a slower tempo than this version. The song was inspired by David Coverdale's divorce.Give Me All Your LoveThis was the fourth single from the album, and it reached number 58 on the US Top 100 charts. By the time the single was released in January 1988 a new guitar solo had been recorded by Vivian Campbell, replacing guitarist and co-writer John Sykes. Campbell would tour with the band but would leave before the next album.Still of the NightThe first single from the album may have only hit number 79 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it received significant airplay on rock stations and MTV. The comparisons to Led Zeppelin were frequent, not just for the guitar riffs, but also for the heavy drumming and similarity between the vocalizations of Coverdale and Robert Plant. The song is about obsession, maybe a vampire, maybe a stalker. ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Love and Marriage by Frank Sinatra (from the television series “Married...With Children”)This anti-Cosby Show family dystopia followed the antics of shoe salesman Al Bundy and his family. STAFF PICKS:Tonight, Tonight, Tonight by GenesisLynch gets the staff picks going with a single from Genesis's album Invisible Touch. It went to number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 despite being written less as a pop song and more like the prog rock style that Genesis used earlier in the decade. The lyrics are about a conversation with a drug dealer, a fact that must have been missed when Michelob used the song to promote their beer.Love Removal Machine by The CultWayne's staff pick is the first single from The Cult's third album, Electric. It went to number 15 on the Mainstream Rock charts in the United States. Lead singer Ian Astbury compares this song to getting on your favorite motorcycle. The opening riff is often compared to “Start Me Up” by the Rolling Stones.Ahead by Wire Rob features the closest post punk band Wire would get to a pop single. It has a spacey, ethereal sound. Wire had extensive influence over many groups, including Sonic Youth, The Cure, and R.E.M. First We Take Manhattan by Jennifer WarnesBruce closes out the staff picks with a song written by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen. Jennifer Warnes originally did this song for a Cohen tribute album, and it features guitarist extraordinaire Stevie Ray Vaughan. The song itself is dark and apocalyptic, with lyrics told from the perspective of a terrorist. COMEDY TRACK:Put Down the Duckie by Hoots the Owl and ErnieWe first learned that we have to put down the duckie if we want to play the saxophone from this skit, which aired on Sesame Street for the first time in April 1987.

In the Spring of 1983, 'Til Tuesday transformed from a new band into the winners of Boston's Rock & Rumble competition. After quickly securing a deal with Epic Records, they released their debut album Voices Carry. Thanks to regular airplay on MTV, the title track rose to #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Sadly, this unique band could never again match the success of the song. This week, we're joined by writer, musician, and Aimee Mann enthusiast Daniel Corey to discuss why we believe 'Til Tuesday's voices should have carried them much higher up the charts.

David Bowie would leave the glam rock genre of his previous albums for a more soulful sound with his ninth studio album, Young Americans. This album features blue eyed soul, or what Bowie would refer to as "plastic soul." David Bowie moved to the United States in 1974 during a time when tax concerns were driving many artists out of the UK. He was living in New York City at the time, and starting production on the album in Philadelphia where he worked with guitarist Carlos Alomar. A funk guitarist, Alomar had worked as a session musician at the Apollo Theater and would become a collaborator and band leader for Bowie over the next decade. In addition to Carlos Alomar, Bowie worked on this album with a number of artists including Robin Clark, Ava Cherry, saxophonist David Sanborn, and a new musician named Luther Vandross.He would also collaborate on this album with ex-Beatle John Lennon who was recording in New York at the same time as Bowie's recording moved there. Bowie and Lennon had met previously at a party hosted by Elizabeth Taylor. Lennon collaborated with Bowie during his "lost weekend" period.Young Americans contains elements of soul, funk, and R&B, and was a deliberate attempt to garner more success in the U.S. market. It certainly achieved this result, though critics would deliver mixed reviews. The transition from glam rock to blue-eyed soul would not be one which all fans embraced, but David Bowie would follow his own creative muse. It would not be the last time we would see a significant stylistic change from Bowie. It was nevertheless a commercial success, going to number 9 on the US albums chart, remaining on the charts for almost a year.Rob brings us this funky example of “plastic soul.” Young AmericansThe title track was recorded in Philadelphia, and hit number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100, Bowie's second-highest chart success to this date. Then unknown singer Luther Vandross conceived the backing vocal arrangement. The song provides impressions of American life through the eyes of an English man. David Sanborn provides the saxophone work.Across the UniverseThis cover of the Beatles song also found collaboration with Beatles' alumnus John Lennon. Backing vocals and guitar are provided by Lennon, who considered this song a better version than his own. Critics tend to disagree, as reviews on the Bowie version were primarily negative.FascinationThis track began as a jam by Luther Vandross entitled “Funky Music (Is a Part of Me)” which was performed before the Bowie concerts in 1974. When Vandross was retained from the “Diamond Dogs” tour, the two collaborated to create the song “Fascination.” The song was an homage to the Philadelphia funk sound.FameThis single hit number 1 on the US charts, the first Bowie song to do so. Composed by Bowie, Alomar, and Lennon, the high backing “Fame” vocalizations are provided by John Lennon. Bowie would describe it as a “nasty, angry” song directed at management with which he had previous issues. ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Ease On Down the Road by Consumer Rapport (from the motion picture The Wiz)A soulful take on The Wizard of Oz featured Diana Ross as Dorothy and Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow. STAFF PICKS:Judy Mae by Boomer Castleman Wayne initiates the staff picks with a controversial song that went to number 33 on the Billboard Hot 100. The lyrics tell of a father to a 17 year-old girl who marries a woman half his age. When an affair ensures between the stepmother and the daughter, the father dies of an accident shortly thereafter. It feels like a racier version of “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.”Long Haired Country Boy by the Charlie Daniels BandBrian brings us a song about a guy with a very passive attitude about life. “I ain't asking for nobody for nuthin' that I can't get on my own. If you don't like the way I'm livin' you just leave this long-haired country boy alone.” It was off the second album from the CDB entitled “Fire on the Mountain.”When Will I Be Loved by Linda Ronstadt Bruce features Ronstadt doing a cover originally from the Everly Brothers in 1960. While the original peaked at number 8, Ronstadt's cover would go to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is a vocal trio between Ronstadt, Kenny Edwards, and Andrew Gold. Trampled Under Foot by Led Zeppelin Rob finishes the staff picks with a song John Paul Jones claims was inspired by Stevie Wonder's “Superstition.” The lyrics were inspired by blues artist Robert Johnson's “Terraplane Blues” from 1936. A Terraplane was a classic car that serves as a not-so-subtle source for sexual innuendo. It is off the band's double album, “Physical Graffiti.” COMEDY TRACK:Bertha Butt Boogie by The Jimmy Castor Bunch This funk novelty track went to number 16 on the US pop chart and number 22 on the US R&B chart.

There's been a record-breaking trend this year of country music dominating the top of the Billboard Hot 100. But it's not just any country music. These hits by artists like Morgan Wallen, Jason Aldean, Oliver Anthony & Luke Combs— all cis white men— are each employing identity politics and tapping into broader socio-political conflict in the US, either implicitly or explicitly, to help power their rise to pop dominance. So for the first segment of today's show, The Atlantic's Spencer Kornhaber, who has written extensively about the influx of bro country on the charts, is here to help explain this phenomenon. In the second of half of the episode, writer and journalist Marissa R. Moss, who publishes the great country newsletter Don't Rock the Inbox turns Louie on to five great country acts operating on the margins— all of whom, notably, are not cis white men— who deserve our attention and are providing a beacon of hope in the entrenched and often sexist, homophobic, transphobic and racist world of Nashville radio.

Carole King has been inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. She co-wrote 118 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and her 1971 album 'Tapestry' topped the charts for 15 weeks on release. It stayed on the charts for six more years. To tell us why King's music resonates today, Jesse is joined by singer, actor, teacher and performer Ali Harper. Ali knows her music well, having written and toured a show called 'A Natural Woman,' in which she performs King's music
The Rolling Stones released their tenth US studio album (eighth in the UK) entitled Let it Bleed at the end of November, 1969. The band had worked on the material in the studio off and on through most of the year, with recording beginning in earnest back in February of 1969 (though work on "You Can't Always Get What You Want" began in November of the previous year). The album would reach number 3 on the US album chart and number 1 on the UK charts, and would produce some of the best known standards of the Stones' collection.The band experienced significant turmoil during the recording of this album. Founding member and multi-instrumentalist Brian Jones was rapidly descending into a drug-induced stupor, causing him to be released from the band in the midst of the album's production. Jones would be found dead in his swimming pool a month after leaving the band. His replacement, Mick Taylor, would appear on a couple of songs for the album, but was not involved in the bulk of the recording. Thus the lion's share of all guitar work fell to guitarist Keith Richards, handling both rhythm and lead guitar parts for most tracks.“Let It Bleed” returns to a blues sound with country and gospel elements, but the lyrics tend towards darker, more gritty themes. Perhaps the album was influenced by the disillusionment of society due to the Vietnam war, racial unrest, and/or protests on college campuses. Certainly the darker side of drug use comes out in many of the songs.In addition to releasing this album just before December 1969, the Rolling Stones participated in the Altamont Speedway Free Festival, a concert which would feature the Hell's Angels utilized as “security” for the event, and which would be considered one of the darkest days of the Rock era due to the violence, extensive property damage, and death associated with the event. Some consider this to be the sad end to the “summer of love” aesthetic attributed to the rock music of the late 60's.One of the founding What the Riff?!? hosts, Brian Dickhute returns to sit in for John Lynch, and brings us this iconic album. Gimme ShelterThe opening track to the album was initially inspired by Richards' observations of people running to get out of a rain storm, but the theme broadens to look at how the world seemed to be closing in with tension, war, and violence. American singer Merry Clayton contributes the female vocals to this track.Let It BleedMick Jagger and Keith Richards penned the honky tonk (country tonk?) title track, which finishes off side 1 of the album. The lyrics contain numerous sexual and drug references, though the theme is more about people providing and finding emotional support in others.Monkey MenWhile it is difficult to call any track from this album a “deeper cut,” we agreed this one is about as close to that as we can find. Jagger and Richards wrote it as a tribute to Italian pop artist Mario Schifano, a contemporary of Andy Warhol whom Jaggar had met when he had a cameo in one of Schifano's movies. You Can't Always Get What You WantThe first song recorded for the album is the last track on side 2. This iconic song features the London Bach Choir, and features verses covering love, politics, and drugs — common themes of the day. The verses begin with optimism and end with disillusionment, returning to a sense of realism in the chorus. It may be the most popular of all recordings by the Stones. ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Come and Get It by Badfinger (from the motion picture “The Magic Christian”) Honestly folks, I thought this was the Beatles, and had no idea that it was from this movie. Paul McCartney did write this song for Badfinger, and the movie starred Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr. STAFF PICKS:Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye by SteamLong before it became a staple of sports venues, Rob's staff pick was written by Paul Leka, Gary DiCarlo, and Dale Frasheur under what was then a fictitious band name, Steam. The song would hit number 1 on the pop charts, although it was intended as a B-side.Backfield In Motion by Mel and TimBruce continues the sports theme in the staff picks with this song about a girl who is running around on her man. This song with allusions to penalties in football, baseball, and boxing went to number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 on the R&B Chart.I'll Hold Out My Hand by The CliqueWayne features a positive soul sound from a two-hit wonder. The Clique would see this song top out at number 45 on the US charts. The lyrics urge someone who is turning inward to reach out instead and strive for their full potential. “I'll be your friend - you don't have to be mine.”Take a Letter Maria by R.B. GreavesBrian finishes our staff picks with a sing-song story about a business man who loses his wife while working overtime. He has his secretary take a letter with copies for his wife and his lawyer. By the end of the song he is scheduling a date with his secretary, Maria. INSTRUMENTAL TRACK:Groovy Grubworm by Harlow Wilcox & the OakiesWe weren't sure if it would be a comedy or an instrumental number, but this instrumental piece was on the charts at the end of 1969, peaking at number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100.
