Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris-“Love Hurts” from “Grievous Angel”

Grievous Angel was the second solo album by Gram Parsons, compiled from 1973 sessions and released four months after his death. It received great critical acclaim upon release, but failed to find commercial success, a fate shared with his previous efforts solo and with The Flying Burrito Brothers. Grievous Angel peaked at number 195 on the Billboard charts. Despite its modest sales, it is viewed as a successful example of the hybrid between country and rock and roll Parsons called “Cosmic American Music”.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 429 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The released album almost certainly deviates from the intended track listing Parsons had. Parsons’ widow, Gretchen, who had never cared for Harris’ relationship with her husband, moved her originally prominent presence on the original front cover of the album (the album being credited on that cover to “Gram Parsons with Emmylou Harris” and featuring a photograph of the two of them) and relegated her to a simple credit on the back cover. Additionally, Gretchen removed the original title track, “Sleepless Nights” and replaced the cover with a simple image of Parsons in a sea of blue. The rearranged album was released in January 1974.

After a ramshackle tour in the spring and summer of 1973, Gram Parsons again convened with his singing partner Emmylou Harris, various members of Elvis Presley’s “Hot Band”, including James Burton and Glen Hardin and the occasional guest (such as Bernie Leadon and Linda Ronstadt) to record his second solo album for Reprise Records. Lacking much-needed new material, Parsons quickly wrote two songs during the sessions (“Return of the Grievous Angel”, with lyrics by Boston-based poet and Parsons fan Thomas Brown; “In My Hour Of Darkness”, arranged by Harris) and looked to songs rejected for previous albums and to standard country songs to flesh out the scant material he came up with. In regards to the original material, “Brass Buttons” dated from Parsons’ brief stint as a Harvard-based folksinger in the mid-1960s; “Hickory Wind” had already been recorded with The Byrds; “$1000 Wedding”, about Parsons’ aborted plan to wed the mother of his daughter in ostentatious style, had been recorded in a plodding arrangement with the Flying Burrito Brothers circa 1970; “Ooh Las Vegas” had been rejected from GP.

In spite of the dearth of new material, the album took what its predecessor had presented and expanded the format of “Cosmic American Music”. With the album in the can, Parsons set off for Joshua Tree, California, where he would fatally overdose on September 19, 1973, dying the next day in nearby Yucca Valley.

The three tracks recorded during the sessions that had gone unreleased, “Sleepless Nights”, “The Angels Rejoiced in Heaven Last Night” and “Brand New Heartache”, were released on the posthumous 1976 Parsons/Flying Burrito Brothers album Sleepless Nights.

The Monkees TV Series Interviews Collection

During the course of The Monkees TV series, some episodes would “conveniently” run a minute short, so the public could really see the Monkees as Michael, Micky, Davy & Peter. This unscripted interviews mostly took place during season one. A few were done during season two when the guys had become seasoned professionals at 24 years old! Some very serious talk about the LA riots of 1967 and some talk about fame and families. A great 20 minutes into The REAL Monkees! The interviews were all given by Bob Rafelson

The Byrds – 1973 Byrds (reunion)

Byrds is the 12th album by the American rock band The Byrds and was released in March 1973. It was recorded as the centerpiece of a reunion between the five original members of The Byrds: Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, David Crosby, ChrisHillman, and Michael Clarke. The last time that all five members had worked together as The Byrds was in 1966, prior to Gene Clark’s departure from the band. During the reunion, the current, latter-day line-up of the band continued tomake live appearances until February 1973, with McGuinn being the only member common to both versions of the group.

Upon its release, Byrds received generally poor reviews, with many critics bemoaning a lack of sonic unity and the absence of The Byrds’ signature jangly guitar sound among the album’s shortcomings. Nonetheless, the album reached #20 on the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart and was also moderately successful in the United Kingdom, where it reached #31. In the U.S., Byrds was the band’s highest charting album of new material since 1965’s Turn! Turn! Turn!, which had also been the last Byrds’ album to feature Clark as a full member. Three of the album’s songs, Full Circle, Things Will Be Better, and Cowgirl in the Sand, were released as singles during 1973 but none of these releases became hits. Byrds is notable for being the last studio album to be recorded by the band to date.

‘Gimme Shelter’ Live

Bridges To Babylon

Oh, a storm is threat’ning
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away

War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin’
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away

AC/DC-Who Made Who

The video game says “Play me”
Face it on a level but it takes you every time on a one on one
Feeling running down your spine
Nothing gonna save your one last dime cause it owns you
Through and through

The databank knows my number
Says I gotta pay cause I made the grade last year
Feel it when I turn the screw
Kicks you round the world, there ain’t a thing that it can’t do
Do to you

Who made who, who made you?
Who made who, ain’t nobody told you?
Who made who, who made you?
If you made them and they made you
Who picked up the bill, who? And who made who?

Who made who, who turned the screw?

Satellites send me picture
Get it in the eye, take it to the world (take it to the wire)
Spinning like a dynamo
Feel it going round and round
Running out of chips, you got no line in an 8-bit town
So don’t look down, no

Ain’t nobody told you, who made who?
