Subject: Kendall Morse web video
From: Dan Schatz
Date: 16 Dec 08 - 06:09 PM

While bumming around the web this morning, I happened across a rare video of our very own Kendall performing "Let the Lower Lights Be Burning." I post it here with Kendall's permission - he tells me that the recording is from a Today Show performance in 1976.

The link may be a little unreliable - I had problems with it earlier, but it seems to be up right now. I think it's a great performance, replete with the sound of crashing surf and rusty trawlers in the background.

Enjoy!

Dan

What a delight! Thanks so much for posting this. Kendall does a fine job on the song, and it was particularly interesting to me because the Gospel Messengers did this song, too. We learned it from a recording of a black gospel quartet, with a different melody and rhythm. I hadn't heard the third verse, either. Good on you, Kendall!

Thanks Dan. Modesty prevented me from posting it.
Joe, back in 1976, NBC Today visited all 50 states and did a short program on each of them. They went to Folk Legacy records and asked who they would recommend to represent Maine, and they said Kendall Morse. They interviewed me, and when I learned that they did not want an imitation character I agreed to do it. They chose the most photogenic lighthouse in America, and the rest is history. I had just gotten that Apollo 12 string guitar and wasn't very good on it yet.

As for the song, that was my Grandfather's favorite song and we sang it at his funeral.It was recorded on Folk Legacy FSI 57. I think it is still available on tapes and I believe Sandy would make a CD if anyone wanted one. There are others songs in it too of course.

Subject: Cape Elizabeth Lighthouses
From: Joe Offer
Date: 16 Dec 08 - 11:01 PM

The information accompanying the video identifies the lighthouse as Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse. While the two lighthouses in the video are on or near Cape Elizabeth, they are not usually called that. The one on land is the Portland Head Light, and the one in the water is Ram Island Ledge Light. Cape Elizabeth Light is at the end of the Cape, and is actually Two Lights, except that the Coast Guard royally screwed up the rear one. Edward Hopper painted both Portland Head and Two Lights.
Owl's Head Light is also on Cape Elizabeth, as is Portland Bug Light.
The area is a lighthouse lover's Paradise.

Joe, you are quite right. The lighthouse is in Cape Elizabeth but it is called Portland Head Light. Probably because it sits on Portland Head. Commissioned by that old terrorist, George Washington himself.

My son was playing around my study this morning. "Hey Kiran," I said, "You want to see our friend Kendall?" "Okay," said he. He listened and watched intently and then said, "More Kendall!" So we watched it again. "Kendall. Again?" he requested. So we watched it a third time. "MORE Kendall!!" So I put on the Folk Legacy Lights Along the Shore LP.

He's listening to it now. (And occasionally shouting PEANUT BUTTER JELLY - but in between songs he says, "More music!")

He's got taste, that one.

I suppose there's no way anybody can surpass Spaw's praise earlier, so I'll just settle for a lame 'Well done, thanks for sharing'. Loved the song already from the CD and seeing it done 'live' - sort of, with a bit of time delay, anyway - was a lovely treat.

Well, the video did everything possible to prevent itself from being heard by you, Kendall. You can hardly blame it for finally succumbing to your technical ministrations.

I understand the bittersweet quality of hearing yourself. On the other hand, the times I have heard you perform in the last few years have been amazingly powerful for me - not because of the quality of your voice, but because of the quality of your person. Somehow your Self has seemed even more present than in the past. I think of you and Jacqui singing "Phoebe Snow" at the Getaway, or the concert you did with Utah. It's like without your vocal abilities, you've got nothing to prove and you can simply be, relying completely on the feeling of words. When you have that, you've really got it - and nothing will ever take it away.

I like the video a lot. It's a wonderful performance. But still, I'd take the real live Kendall any day over some old video.

I hesitate to post to this thread because as Head Kendall Groupie I am somewhat predictable but...
in this video, Kendall so obviously loves the song and lets it be itself. No fancy warbles or key changes or flourishes. Just a beautiful song sung by a man who loves it.
Perfect


and definitely a chick magnet.
Move over Amos. I am joining you in the cellar.
