Sixty Eight Guns 5. Bound For Glory. The complete live concert from the Fillmore West on January 31, , for the first time on vinyl for Record Store Day Robbie Basho is widely regarded as one of the progenitors of what's commonly known today as American Primitive guitar. Growing up in Maryland alongside neo-traditional guitar explorers John Fahey and Max Ochs, Basho's path would take a decidedly different turn, bringing Hindi, Indian, Japanese and Native American musical traditions into his work.
Liam Barker first became aware of Basho having purchased Tompkins Square's reissue of Venus in Cancer, released in This led him on an incredible fact-finding expedition, unraveling the many layers of mystery surrounding Basho's life and death, all deftly compiled and depicted in his documentary film, Voice of the Eagle: The Enigma of Robbie Basho.
During the research process, Barker came across a large cache of unheard Basho tapes recorded throughout his career, ranging roughly from After fronting Minneapolis legends Titanic Love Affair from Bennett was a key member of the band Wilco, often co-writing songs on the band's early releases with Jeff Tweedy.
The band was working on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot at the time. Bennett immediately teamed up with Burch and The Palace at 4am was released on the same street date in as Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Hardcore Wilco fans loved the release and immediately started making comparisons on who was the real 'genius' of Wilco, Bennett or Tweedy.
Bennett passed away suddenly in and with the blessings of his family, ten years after his death Schoolkids Records has teamed up with Edward Burch to release The Palace at 4am for the first time ever on vinyl for RSD The album also includes the track "My Darlin'" which was also on Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, re-recorded by Bennett for this release.

Nashville, five young girls teach themselves their instruments playing along to the radio.
Initially named 'The Pivots' and by the end of '67 christened as The Feminine Complex, they were playing out and developing a local following including radio and television appearances. They created their own versions of popular songs, a style that reflected their need to express their own experience of girlhood. Gender bending 'boys' songs' they simply changed the lyrics, modifying the major characters and pronouns creating a space for themselves inside the music where they were able to become the agents of their own wishes, needs and desires.
Come '68, they appeared on NBC's nationally syndicated Showcase '68, hosted by Lloyd Thaxton paving way to their cult status. It is not allegorical to say that in some way, they widened the entrance to the historical vacuum that a generation later would come to be filled by Riot Grrrl and rock 'n' roll camps for girls.
The Feminine Complex were not just a good band because they were girls, or because they were the first girls. They are a good band because they are. Lucky for us, we have these recordings, so we can continue to hear why.

A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces An airline ticket to romantic places. At twelve it was finished. I rang Jack Strachey up and broke the news to him that he had to set the number to music by 6 o'clock that evening.
Other sources attribute Maschwitz's inspiration for the lyric to something more specific than the deadline for a radio program.
Maschwitz was romantically linked to the Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong while working in Hollywood during the early thirties, and the lyric for "These Foolish Things" is supposedly evocative of his longing for her after they parted and he returned to England.
However, the lyricist himself does not mention this. The song, Maschwitz goes on to explain, was far from an instant success. It went into the radio revue where it was "beautifully sung by Patrick Waddington and a talented, lovely girl called Joan Carr -- who is now the Countess of Drogheda," but even though the songwriters' friends loved it, his publisher, as well as many others, rejected it, no doubt later regretting the torrent of royalties that eventually poured in.
It wasn't, according to Maschwitz, until six months later that the stroke of luck required to get the song out and about occurred when the West Indian-British cabaret star Leslie "Hutch" Hutcinson was visiting Maschwitz's studio and saw the "battered manuscript of 'These Foolish Things'.
Maschwitz explained. The Moment he had finished, he turned to Maschwitz and said: "I have a recording session in two days' time. May I use it? And use it he did. Not only did "Hutch" make a record which both the composer and the lyricist still think is the best one of the song, but he found a publisher -- and made the song a hit. It was only after the "Hutch" recording that "These Foolish Things" got put into Spread it Abroad where it was sung by Dorothy Dickson, a performance that stopped the show.
After that an American, Irving Berlin no less, bought the American rights "and added two bars to the middle section, thus achieving the conventional 32 bar construction. The mystery derives from the fact that all of the sources giving Maschwitz's account of the actual writing of the song clearly state that Strachey wrote the music, whereas Link is not mentioned at all.
One might also find it interesting that although Link wrote the music for a lot of songs, for his only other big hit, " I've Got a Feeling I'm Fallin, " he also shares the music credit with a much more well known composer, Fats Waller.
The explanation for Link's role may lie in the song's connection to Irving Berlin , as referred to above: more specifically with the claim that after Berlin bought the American rights to the song in , Berlin himself added two bars to "These Foolish Things" making it conform to the standard 32 bar format of most popular songs of the time.
It may have been that Berlin himself did this, but given that by he was already one of the most famous and wealthy composers of popular song of all time it seems more likely that Link, working for Berlin, made the change. Link, an American songwriter whose primary work was in the music publishing business, had connections to Berlin and his company for at least ten years as of the time Berlin bought the American rights to "These Foolish Things.
In , Link along with two other songwriters, one of whom was Babe Ruth's agent, rewrote, with Berlin's permission, the lyric for Berlin's song "Along Came Ruth" so it could be sung as part of the baseball star's vaudeville act. Also at least some of Link's own songs of the period were published by Berlin's company. Peter Mintun, who sings the full British lyric as it was performed in Spread it Abroad See video just below.
He points out that this is heard in rhymes like "haunted" and "enchanted" which only works for Americans with the British pronunciation "enchaunted. Visit the Cafe Songbook Lyrics Lounge to compare and contrast the two bridges. Note that on the sheet music shown in the video Harry Link does not receive a credit. For the fullest rendition of the American version of the lyrics, listen to Ella Fitzgerald on the album, Ella and Louis Again -- a performance not to be missed.
This evidence is not definitive regarding Link's role, but it at least makes it plausible that he was given the job by Berlin or Berlin's music publishing firm of Americanizing bits of the lyric as well as the music -- and for that work was given "music by" credit.
If this occurred, it would have made for a profitable few minutes work for him considering the money the song has brought in over the years -- though one shouldn't forget that it didn't take Maschwitz and Strachey much longer to create the entire song. Maybe it just comes down to this comment on the "mysterious third name ["the missing Link"] on the credits" by Robert Cushman in his article on "These Foolish Things":. Presumably he [Link] had somethng to do with sprucing up "These Foolish Things" for the US market, though it's hard to tell what.
Maybe he was just good at royalties Cushman, pp. Also see the definition of " cutting in " in the Cafe Songbook glossary. According to Strachey, after "These Foolish Things" he never wrote another song that achieved its level of success. Apparently, " A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, " which he and Maschwitz wrote in , and which is a standard by any measure, did not qualify.
As he states: "I've been trying to write another 'These Foolish Things' all these years and I have never managed it. Robin Miller comments, in his article, that it is quite possible that a certain kind of songwriting success is no longer possible because "The great songs of the s were written by adults for adults.
