You angel you
You got me under your wing
The way you walk and the way you talk
I feel I could almost sing

You angel you
You’re as fine as anything’s fine
The way you walk and the way you talk
It sure plays on my mind

Fantastic version.

Bob Dylan: I’ll Remember you, London, England 8 February 1990 (video)

bob dylan london 1990

I’ll remember you
When I’ve forgotten all the rest
You to me were true
You to me were the best
When there is no more
You cut to the core
Quicker than anyone I knew
When I’m all alone
In the great unknown
I’ll remember you

We first hear the dying seconds of “You’re A Big Girl Now”, then a GREAT version of “I’ll Remember You” kicks in…

Today: Del Shannon passed away 24 years ago in 1990

del shannon

I always want to run away from A to B, and then I get to B and I wanna go back to A. I think everybody wants to run away.
~Del Shannon

 

One of the best and most original rockers of the early ’60s, Del Shannon was also one of the least typical. Although classified at times as a teen idol, he favored brooding themes of abandonment, loss, and rejection.

Bob Dylan: Where Teardrops Fall, London, England 8 February 1990 (Video)

bob dylan london 1990

Far away where the soft winds blow
Far away from it all
There is a place you go
Where teardrops fall

Far away in the stormy night
Far away and over the wall
You are there in the flickering light
Where teardrops fall

Hammersmith Odeon
London, England
8 February 1990

  • G. E. Smith (guitar)
  • Tony Garnier (bass)
  • Christopher Parker (drums)

We banged the drum slowly
And played the fife lowly
You know the song in my heart
In the turning of twilight
In the shadows of moonlight
You can show me a new place to start

I’ve torn my clothes and I’ve drained the cup
Strippin’ away at it all
Thinking of you when the sun comes up
Where teardrops fall

By rivers of blindness
In love and with kindness
We could hold up a toast if we meet
To the cuttin’ of fences
To sharpen the senses
That linger in the fireball heat

Roses are red, violets are blue
And time is beginning to crawl
I just might have to come see you
Where teardrops fall

Bruce Springsteen: Born To Run

OLD post … You’re being redirected to a newer version……

bruce springsteen born to run

Don’t run back inside
Darling you know just what I’m here for
So you’re scared and you’re thinking
That maybe we ain’t that young anymore
Show a little faith there’s magic in the night
You ain’t a beauty but hey you’re alright
Oh and that’s alright with me
~From “Thunder Road”

To hear Springsteen sing the line “Hiding on the backstreets” is to be captured by an image; the details can come later. Who needed to figure out all the words to “Like a Rolling Stone” to understand it?
~Greil Marcus (rollingstone.com)

Born to Run is a powerhouse release that takes you on an open-ended cinematic rock and roll journey.

Happy Birthday to my fav Springsteen album!

Born to Run is the third album by the American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen. It was released on August 25, 1975 through Columbia Records. It captured the heaviness of Springsteen’s earlier releases while displaying a more diverse range of influences.

Born to Run was a critical and commercial success and became Springsteen’s breakthrough album. It peaked at number three on the Billboard 200, eventually selling six million copies in the US by the year 2000. Two singles were released from the album: “Born to Run” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out”; the first helped Springsteen to reach mainstream popularity. The tracks “Thunder Road” and “Jungleland” became staples of album-oriented rock radio and Springsteen concert high points.

On November 14, 2005, a “30th Anniversary” remaster of the album was released as a box set including two DVDs: a production diary film and a concert movie.
