if you need sleeve notes....

I wrote my tune after visiting a stone circle (in Oz believe it or not).... reminded me of the circles back home.. so I sat down with the harp, closed my eyes and pictured my favourite stone circle (Beltany, Co Donegal) and let her play what she wanted... this is the tune that she played....

Liner notes: WALLA WALLA WOMAN BLUES

This original blues is loosely based on the Barrelhouse style made famous by stars like Bessie Smith, in the days before microphones were used for live performance. It was written to raise some working cash for the Mudcat on commission from a lovely Mudcatter in, of all places, Walla Walla, Washington, the town so fair they had to name it twice.


E~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You know, flakie cats just want to stone you
B7~~~~~~~~
And big cowboys they just want to own you
A~~~~~~~~~~~~A7
For a reg'lar jelly roll
~~C#m~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And the losers want you to roll them
~~C#7~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And beg you to control them
F#7~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~F#6~~~~~~~~~~~~~B7~~
And grind 'em til they find they souls , oh,
E~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~E7
I 'm not about to start contraction
B~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~B7~~~~~~
From a masculine reaction
~~~~~~~~~C#m~~~~~~~~~~G#7~~~~~~A~~
Cuz I'm a real woman right down to my shoes,

But I'm getting those
E7~~~~~~~~~~~~C#7
Walla Walla's wasting
F#7~~~~~~~B7~~B7aug(?) E
A Walla Walla Woman blues

Big bikers want to play you
And maybe want to flay you
Hey, wouldn't you rather burn a bra?
Then the SNAGS want easy living
Got no-o-o sense of rhythm
And can't figure out just who they really are
Mister big iron pumper
Got a motion, like a bumper
AIn't got enough plain soul to shine my shoes

But I'm gettin those
Walla Walla's wastin'
A Walla Walla Women blues.


      Bridge:
      ~~~~~~G#7~~~~~~~~~~C#m
      I like to do that hootchie kootchie thing
    ~~~~~~G#7~~~~~~~~~~C#m
      But no-one here to kootchie me

      ~~~~~~~~~B~~~~~~~~~~Bm~~~~~~~~B7~~~~~~~
      And the men around here drink tea, cold tea, oh

I got three hot kitties
Begging, pretty pretty,
Just to go out on the town at night
Jes' see how they carry on
Hear them whine an' moan
They don' believe its right
Sometimes I turn a my back
And they slip through a crack
And those pussies down town
Get more than I do

Leaves me them
Walla Walla's wastin'
A Walla Walla Women blues.

      ~~~~~~~~B~~~~~~~~~~Bm~~~~~~~~B7~~~~~~~
      And some con-geni-ality, Oh,


I don't want a man on booze
They always seem to lose
Except for that one out Chicago way
Cuz I can still recall
He would play that Cannonball
And that was what he did to steal
My heart away
I'm gonna move it, yes move it
Til someone finds that groove,
Go out in whitebread city and cruise
Gonna shake them Walla Walla....
Wasting a Walla Walla....
A Walla Walla Woman Blues....oh, yes.

"Fly Me Away"

Words and Music by Anne Cooke and Amos Jessup
Artist: Áine (Anne Cooke), vocals; Layne Cooke, strings and sound engineering

Fly me away to the days down in Lafayette
When we were the talk of the town
You took my hand when they played 'Jolie Blonde'
And I laughed as you waltzed me around

Raised up three girls by the glow of a fire
Taught them the old Cajun tunes
We built a life, and did it with nothing
But iron pots ---- and wooden spoons


Bring me back home to the place by the bayou
To a dance floor lit by a blue moon
Shadows of Spanish moss painted the wind
And the night owl kept calling the tune


On a small wooden porch with a tar paper roof
We rocked to the song of the loon
We built a life, and did it with nothing
But iron pots ---- and wooden spoons


Oh won't you fly me away back to Lafayette
Where only memories remain
You'd take my hand once more for a waltz
And I'd do it all over again


We found a treasure there under the pines
That time will take from us soon
We built a life, and did it with nothing
But iron pots ---- and wooden spoons

Notes: "This Time Again", Anne Gregson, UK (with permission kindly granated by the author)

Artist: KarenK

""I learned this in 1999 -- don't know if you remember when "Catspaw" (Pat Patterson of the Mudcat) was really sick and in the hospital for a long time. I posted this song after he turned the corner and things started looking good for him. I then went to the 1999 Washington Getaway and sang this at the Mudcat workshop. Later, when I got quite sick myself, Catspaw posted part of this song in an email to me. It's a special song to me with a tie to the Mudcat. Mudcatter Kath Westra cries when she hears me do this song. This was recorded in Sept 1999 at a gospel sing in South Dartmouth Massachusetts in a 1700's Quaker meetinghouse with great acoustics and about 50 voices joining in."

This story about the song "This Time Again" moves me a lot. My partner Anne wrote it (though - don't tell anyone - I did contribute 2 verses) and it has for long been a favourite song of our repertoire. But the amazing thing is that, considering we're Brits, we know these places. We stayed a few days in South Dartmouth a few years back, with our friends Jim and Cindy Bean. I've not been inside the Quaker meeting house, but I've seen the outside. Furthermore, a year or so before KarenK, we sang the song ourselves at the Washington Getaway.

We are both delighted to see the song here, and can't wait to hear it.

I, too, am seeking answers to some of these questions. I know the answers are all here somewhere, but I finding them would be a lengthy task. Is it possible to have a thread that deals with the business of the CDs and doesn't include all the interpersonal chatter that my two or three hours a week at the computer doesn't give me time or inclination to read? If such a thread exists, could someone point me at it?

Thanks!

Under the category of "Odd But True". I had bits of Art's Chicago song running through my head and was sort of wondering if there was a recorded source for it the day before this thread was posted. I'm tickled that it's on here (not to mention being on the same disc with it) and very glad that I read this thread before making an ass of myself by posting a thread asking where I might find the song.

Amos, I see you decided to include the "new-agey-est," and schmaltziest of my songs for this CD. (No objection, mind you, since it has 3-part harmony and is one of my best quality recordings -- but you're the one who said it was "sweet.")

I can post the lyrics and chords here if that's appropriate. I'll PM michaelr the exact way the credits should read.

It's a song I composed for a Unitarian-Universalist Church summer camp on the theme of (you guessed it) "Harmony," back in 1986 (IIRC). (Gotta double check that © date.) Since then, I added a chorus/refrain to make the song more singable in groups without sheet music. And I added a verse, too.

Really looking forward to hearing these CDs, folks!

The song listed as 'Present Conpany Excepted', appears in The Mudcat Songbook (with a bit of explanation/blub) under the title of 'The Bigot's Song'. The Bigot's Song

It probably matters little but perhaps The Bigot's Song (Present Company Excepted) would be a compromise, if it would fit?

Also The Shanbles is Roger Gall.

I look forward to hearing the 'big band' sound I have always felt the song required between the verses and has on the (home) version I recorded.

Roger:

You can have it listed as you preferred -- just PM MichaelR how it should be. My error -- I made an assumption based on the lyrics, but I didn't mean to alter your song's name.

Best regards,

A

The disks will be available from CAMSCO Music. All proceeds will go to Mudcat. I haven't set any prices yet, because I haven't received the disks nor the artwork, and I don't know what it will cost me to produce.

Believe me, I'm not out to screw the Mudcat (assuming that one could screw a mudcat.

Dick, I don't believe anyone suggested that. And in case someone is thinking it, let me assure you. This whole thing that Dick does is pretty much a labor of love. If you don't believe that, then read the history of the DT. Those of us who know you as a friend understand that you are one of those folks that is in this to keep passing it on. Dick's prices are designed for stayin' alive, not gettin' ahead.

My God, Dick!! I certainly hope I never said anything that implied you would ever try such a thing!! I have made it clear from the beginning you were doing this pro bono Mufdcatto and if I ever hear anyone even think you are remiss in any way, I will make violin strings outta 'em. If I haven't made it REAL clear, your goodwill is the thing that is making the realization of this whole CD project possible!!

But, remember, sheep lie!!

Very best regards,

Amos

Here are the liner notes for my song which Amos so graciously included in the Strawberry Mudcat CD (because he thought it was "sweet.")
Genie

Harmony (One Out Of Many)

words & music by  R. Jeanene Pratt © 1988; 1990*
Jeanene Pratt (Genie): guitar, lead vocal, harmonies

Many instruments and melodies,
Many voices form a symphony:
One Out Of Many: Let the music be
Sung not in unison, but harmony.

Many textures in one tapestry,
Ev'ry thread with its own specialty:
One Out Of Many.  Let the fabric be
Woven with loving hands in harmony.
 

Chorus:
So let us all sing out and let it be
Sung, not in unison, but harmony .
Harmony, let it be
Sung, not in unison, but harmony.

Many colors, each with its own name,
In one rainbow burst as if in flame;
One Out Of Many.  Let the colors be
Rich in their character and harmony.

Many creatures, marvelous to see,
Share with us the earth and sky and sea:
One Out Of Many.  Let all nature be
Rich in diversity and harmony.

Chorus

Many roots must feed one growing tree,
Unity, not uniformity:
One Out Of Many.  Let the music be
Sung, not in unison, but harmony.

One true light from vantages diverse;
One community is all this earth:
One Out Of Many.  Let the music be
Sung, not in unison, but harmony.

Last Chorus:
So let us all sing out and let it be
Sung, not in unison, but harmony.
Harmony, let it be
Sung, not in unison, but harmony.
Harmony, let it be
Sung, not in unison, but as a symphony.

*The song was written for a Unitarian-Universalist summer camp in 1988 (theme: "Harmony"), without a chorus or verse #4.  I added the chorus in 1990 to make it a better group sing-along song, and also added verse #4 that year.   The version on this CD is the original five verses sans chorus, recorded in 1988.

Well, objectively and scientifically, I submitted these words and notes to an advanced aesthetology testng lab who ran it through their Emotive Cross-Semantic Coupled Spectrometer and Gravity Detector system. Their verdict? "Strongly structured and sweet". See? The ol' man's still got it, kid!!
