Req: Turn, Turn, Turn (Pete Seeger)

DigiTrad:
BIG MUDDY
DON'T ASK WHAT A RIVER IS FOR
FLOWERS OF PEACE
I MIND MY OWN BUSINESS
MY GET UP AND GO HAS GOT UP AND WENT
MY OLD BROWN EARTH
OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD
OLD DEVIL TIME
ONE GRAIN OF SAND
PRECIOUS FRIEND
QUITE EARLY MORNING
SAILING DOWN MY DIRTY STREAM
SAILING DOWN MY GOLDEN RIVER
SOUR CREAM
TURN, TURN, TURN or TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON
WALKING DOWN DEATH ROW
WELL MAY THE WORLD GO

I thought it was by the Byrds, and it is almost verbatim from Ecclesiates, in the Christian Bible. 1st chapter, forget which verses, Bible is locked in the bedroom with the sleeping MR. I know someone can give them to you.

Are you sure the Beatles did it? I've heard The Byrds do Turn, Turn, Turn and I believe Pete Seeger wrote that version. I'm a pretty big Beatles fan but I don't recall them doing it.

Pete Seeger wrote it from Ecclesiastes.

When the Byrds did their version, I suppose Roger McGuinn would adjusted it a bit. And the Beatles never did it that I've heard.

And if you want to sing it, I'd advise using Pete Seeger's version as your jumping-off place, rather than the Byrds.

Actually,Marcellin is right, there were no Byrds. It was just another elaborate practical joke perpetrated by John Lennon. He and McCartney had just had a hit called Michelle under the pseudonym David and Jonathan, and thought it would "shove a sapling up the Queen's knickers" to write and perform music as an "American" pop group. This was right before Paul died and was replaced by a 23 year old milkman from Wrexham.

There was also no Pete Seeger, but that's another story...

Subject: Vanity of Vanities
From: Joe Offer

"Turn Turn Turn" (except for those three words) comes from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
I wonder if anybody has tried to make a song out of the beginning of Ecclesiastes:
Vanity of Vanities, saith the Preacher,
Vanity of Vanities, all is vanity.
Don't ponder that too long...

So, tell me, what the heck do the words "turn, turn, turn" have to do with the rest of the song?

The Byrd's version of Turnx3 had three things going for it- *soaring harmony, which McGuinn's nasal voice kept from becoming insipidly sweet * A great drum track, which Michael Clarke was capable of on occasion(see Eight Miles High) * and McGuinn playing his distinctive 12 string Rickenbacker over the driving beat in one of his best solos.

I like Pete's version, too, for the warmth and good-feeling of his singing. The meaning of the song comes across more clearly in Pete's.

Didn't see that, Spaw, but I can imagine. In his mid-fifties, Roger McGuinn must find himself in a pretty odd position. A contemporary of Dylan, Ochs, Hardin, Bok and others, he is still not really accepted by the Folk Community because of his previous "Rock Star" status. And that's a shame, because I think Roger's done a hell of a lot for folk and traditional music, not the least contribution being his helping to introduce it to a mass audience.

I didn't realise that McGuinn was seen it that way. As far as I'm aware he isn't here in the UK.

I agree with your comments, he's done a lot for folk. I love his folk den website, a new recording of a traditional song every month in various audio formats, along with chords and lyrics. All for free

Lonesome EJ,

Which folk community is not accepting of Roger McGuinn? It seems to me that Roger is very much of the folk music community.

My own experiences with Roger have been very positive. In the 1980s, when I was running a folk club in Montreal, he came and played there. His concerts were a mix of Byrds material, that he played on an acoustic 12-string, and traditional folk songs. His audience was mostly folk music fans (and artists).

And in 1998 when he came back to Montreal, he did a long guest spot on my folk music radio program.

Ed Pellow mentioned Roger's Folk Den website. It's all about promoting traditional folk songs.

Roger's next album is going to be all traditional folk songs, all in acoustic arrangements and including duets with Joan Baez, Tommy Makem, Pete Seeger, Jean Ritchie, Odetta and Judy Collins.

Roger is also good friends with Jeff Lynne. Infact, the title of Roger's album Back From Rio is a tribute to the Jeff Lynne song "Goin' Down To Rio." There is also a tiny sampling of "Goin' Down To Rio" used as an instrumental bridge between 2 of the songs...

Mike, it could be just my perception about McGuinn not being accepted by serious folkies. It is certain that he is doing much for the preservation of traditional music at this time. The Folk Den is indeed a wonderful resource on the net, and I look forward to his next album with those great musicians.

My impression is that The Byrds are often looked on as a group that bastardized folk into rock for commercial purposes. I know that many at the time saw them that way. I for one believe that many of their covers of Dylan, Seeger and others transcended the original artist's work.

Well, Peter, I would consider some of our resident Mudcatters to be "serious folkies",like Art Thieme, Frank Hamilton, Sandy Paton,and Kendall, and I would be very curious to hear their reactions to the "folk rock" movement, and the Byrds' music. My guess is that they may still have some objections to the idea of Wild Mountain Thyme with electric guitars and drums.

Fortunately, it came to me a flash...I could just hear it....Carly Simon....You're so vain...you probably think this song is about you! **BG**

Way back when I was in Job's Daughter's, an organisation for young girls, related to the Masons, I was on the fast track to becoming Honoured Queen.

I think the Beatles' connection came from this: back in the 60's there was a young Welsh lassie named Mary Hopkin (no "s") who had a hit with this song. She had been the winner on a talent show called Opportunity Knocks, and had been immediately snapped up by the Beatles management, who handled her career, with personal assists and arrangements from Paul McC. himself. She also had a big hit with Those Were The Days. All the best. Seamus
