The Endless Note

I Still Miss Someone

At my door the leaves are falling
A cold wild wind Will come
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone

I go out on a party
And look for a little fun
But I find a darkened corner
‘Cause I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she’s sorry
For leavin’ what we’d begun
There’s someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she’s sorry
For leavin’ what we’d begun
There’s someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

and i still miss someone

The Red Devils

The Red Devils were/are regarded as a bit of a “cult” band as the raw blues outfit released only one official album with that being a live recording produced by Rick Rubin.

The album was titled “King King” which was the name of their favourite venue where the album was recorded.

I bought the album at the time of its release  on impulse from Tower Records in Glasgow and it remains one of my favourite buys.

“She’s Dangerous” – The Red Devils

As you will have heard from the Willie Dixon cover above the band were a no frills hard-hitting outfit which mixed their blues influence with a real in your face attitude.

Track listing

No. Title Writer(s) Length
1. “Automatic”   Willie Love 3:26
2. “Goin’ To The Church”   Lester Butler 4:07
3. “She’s Dangerous”   Willie Dixon 5:02
4. “I Wish You Would”   Billy Boy Arnold 3:01
5. “Cross Your Heart”   Rice Miller (aka Sonny Boy Williamson II) 4:28
6. “Tail Dragger”   Willie Dixon 5:24
7. “Devil Woman”   The Red Devils 6:57
8. “No Fightin'”   Butler 5:56
9. “Mr. Highway Man”   Chester Burnett (aka Howlin’ Wolf) 3:35
10. “I’m Ready”   Willie Dixon 3:46
11. “Quarter to Twelve”   Marion Jacobs (aka Little Walter) 7:03
12. “Cut That Out”   Junior Wells 4:59

Around the same time as recording this album Rick Rubin was working with Johnny Cash on his Def American Recordings, (the man in the beard meeting the man in black) for some of the sessions he used The Red Devils as backing musicians and some of these sessions eventually saw the light of day within the Cash’s 2004 5 disc box set “Unearthed”

Here they are with Johnny on a version of the appropriately titled Steve Earle song “Devil’s Right Hand” (for info the box set also includes their contribution to “T For Texas”)

Did Ye Ken Johnny Cash Loves Fife?

A documentary about Johnny Cash‘s connections to Scotland is set to be aired on BBC Radio 4 this weekend (February 14).

‘Johnny Cash Of Easter Cash’ focuses on Cash‘s fascination with the small village of Easter Cash in Falkland, Fife.

Cash became fascinated with the village after being told about it by a random passenger on a plane, and visited it a number of times in his life. He also traced his ancestry back to 12th century royal Malcolm IV, whose surname was either Cash or Cashel, reports Spinner.

Featuring first hand accounts by Falkland villagers and Cash‘s daughter Rosanne, the documentary goes out on BBC Radio 4 this Saturday (February 13) at 10:30am (GMT).

“Satisfied Mind” – Jeff Buckley

How Many Times, Have u Heard Someone Say,
If I Had Money, I Would Do Things My Way.
But Little They Know, That It’s So Hard To Find
One Rich Man In Ten, With A Satisfied Mind.

Money Can’t Buy Back, All Your Youth When Your Old
A Friend When Your Lonley, Or Peace To Your Soul
The Wealtiest Person, Is A Pauper At Times
Compared To The Man, With a Satisfied Mind.

When My Life Is Over, And My Time Has Run Out,
My Friends and My Lovers, I Will Leave, Theres No Doubt
But One Things For Certain, When It Comes My Time
I’ll Leave This Old World With A Satisfied Mind
But One Things For Certain, When It Comes My Time, Oh Yeah
I’ll Leave This Old World With A Satisfied Mind mind mind, mind mind,
Satisfied Mind.

Cover Story – Hurt

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar’s chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

The above is perhaps one of the best cover versions ever, recorded and filmed shortly before Johnny Cash’s passing it is a swansong to beat all.

Here is a live version of Nine Inch Nail’s original composition.

New News – New Dylan Album

bob-dylan

Bob Dylan looks set to release an album of entirely new material in late April. Ten new tracks are expected for the record, which was reportedly recorded in California in October of last year.

The songs have been mixed and sequenced and playbacks are believed to have recently taken place in Sony’s European offices. An Autumn release date was originally suggested but it is understood this was brought forward to coincide with the final stages of Dylan’s upcoming European tour.

According to Dylan fansite Isis, Dylan was approached to write the soundtrack to forthcoming film ‘My Own Love’ song, starring Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker. Supposedly, when Dylan went into the studio he was so impressed with the results he decided to record his own album of new material. It is also believed that not all the musicians on the new release are from Dylan’s current touring band.

UK tour dates have also now been added to Dylan’s European tour, the live shows are as follows:

Here is the supposedly rare recording of Dylan playing “Baby Please Don’t Go”

Finally here is “I Still Miss Someone” from the Dylan/Cash Sessions

MP3

At my door the leaves are falling
A cold wild wind has come
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone

I go out on a party
And look for a little fun
But I find a darkened corner
Because I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she’s sorry
For leavin’ what we’d begun
There’s someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash

the-dylan-and-cash-sessions

“This is a true peice of Americana — two iconic masters of their craft conversing with one another via song. Recorded throughout 1969 on three separate occasions, these recordings mark an important historical collaboration between two American poets/musicians. Even a casual fans of either artist should at least give these a cursory listen. Great stuff”

The above is taken from the brilliant Blog An Aquarium Drunkard from where you can for a limited period download all the tracks.

In the meantime you can listen to their verdion of one of my favourite songs.
