Subject: Does anyone remember this album?
From: Ju4dy
Date: 02 Jan 00 - 12:30 AM

In the mid sixties, not sure when, '66?, my friends and I had an album by an artist named Tim (I think) something. Tim Buckley? Tim Hardin? I don't know. I don't think so. Three songs on that album that I remember very well, remember most of the words and chords, are: The Cat Came Back, Joey, and Levee. Levee has a chorus that goes "I don't know why I built me that levee, levee don't do me no good..." Joey starts out with "Like a windblown woman, the wind blows through the bunkhouse...like windblown woman, smellin fo where she's been...smellin of Oregon cherries or maybe Texas avacados, or maybe Arizona sugarbeets...the wind blows in and speaks to me, she sings 'Joey, Joey, Joey Joe, you been too long in one place, and it's time to go, time to go..." and so on. The Cat Came Back of course starts out with "Old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own, he had an old yellow cat that just would not leave its home, tried and he tried to give that cat away, but the cat came back the very next day..." and so on. I would like to find get this album now, but my searches haven't led me there so far., since I don't know the artist's name, or the album title. Searches by the song titles haven't panned out. Thanks.

I have no idea about "The Cat Came Back" or "Levee", but "Joey" is a song, music and lyrics by Frank Loesser from his Broadway musical, "The Most Happy Fella" (Broadway premiere in 1956). The original lyrics:

Like a perfumed woman,
The wind blows in the bunkhouse.
Like a perfumed woman,
Smellin' of where she's been
Smellin' of Oregon cherries
Or maybe Texas avocadoes
Or maybe Arizona sugarbeets
The wind blows in
And she sings to me
'Cause I'm one of her ramblin' kin
She sings, "Joey, Joey, Joey", etc.

There were a lot of great songs in that show. You should be able to find "The Most Happy Fella" on amazon.com

Just noticed this request is nine years old. I have messaged Ju4dy to let her know it's Tim Morgan, but I have no idea if she's still active on Mudcat.

FYI

Well spotted, Peace - I used to love that Joey song. Remember if anyone's googling it, his surname is spelled "Morgon".

Great eye, Bonnie. I missed that. Perhaps a clone could correct it my post (thanks to Bonnie)?
