    [QUOTE]some of my alltime fave lines: The crumbs of love that you offer me, they're the crumbs I've left behind Your pain is no credential here, it's just the shadow, shadow of my wound (Avalanche) Some women wait for Jesus, and some women wait for Cain so I hang upon my altar and I hoist my axe again. And I take the one who finds me back to where it all began when Jesus was the honeymoon and Cain was just the man. And we read from pleasant Bibles that are bound in blood and skin that the wilderness is gathering all its children back again. (Last Year's Man) Oh, the Sisters of Mercy, they are not departed or gone They were waiting for me when I thought, I just cannot go on And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song Yes I hope you run into them, you who've been traveling so long Yeah, you who must leave everything that you cannot control It begins with your family, but soon it comes 'round to your soul Well I've been where you're hanging and I think I can see how you're pinned Yeah, when you're not feeling holy, your loneliness tells that you've sinned They lay down beside me, I made my confession to them They touched both my eyes, I touched the dew on their hem If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right (Sisters of Mercy) There are heroes in the seaweed There are children in the morning They are leaning out for love And they will lean that way forever While Suzanne holds the mirror (Suzanne) There'll be the breaking of the ancient western code Your private life will suddenly explode There'll be phantoms There'll be fires on the road and the white man dancing You'll see a woman hanging upside down her features covered by her fallen gown and all the lousy little poets coming round tryin' to sound like Charlie Manson and the white man dancin' Give me back the Berlin wall Give me Stalin and St Paul Give me Christ or give me Hiroshima Destroy another fetus now We don't like children anyhow I've seen the future, baby: it is murder Things are going to slide ...

    I'll add to that.

    Take the only tree that's left
    And shove it up that hole in your culture.

    Posted by Johnnycop[/QUOTE]

    Johnnycop,

    Explain how he helped the Red Sox cheat to two World Series titles. I think one can assume that there were many other players on other teams juicing as well, and without knowing who was on any given team I'd say it was an even playing field, so any title won during the juicing era might be tainted, but if you're a Yankees fan, the Yankees titles could be tainted just as well as ARod admitted to juicing as well. 
    The Red Sox did not cheat.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: So Long, Manny Ram : It'd be a huge mistake to stereotype Lightfoot with Pop music. He doesn't follow trends: He sets them. He'll stayed true to his music.  He didn't sell out. If you opened your mind and listened to his body of work, you'd find him as revealing as when you first acknowledged A CATCHER'S RELEVANCE. Lightfoot is a musical genius (not a term I ever use lightly). His song-writing is incredibly expansive. I've lost track of all the artists that have cut his stuff. The respect he has in the musical circles is boundless. Can you honestly tell me that the lyrics to THE SOUL IS THE ROCK didn't make you think?
    Posted by harness[/QUOTE]I've always kind of thought of him as a folk artist, and I mean that in the best possible way. Flok music has always been able to express the soul and the feelings of the people it derives in ways that commercial pop music never could. Think bluegrass as opposed to modern country. Blues was folk music, and together with Appalachian string band music it gave birth to rock and roll. When the multinational conglomerates got hold of rock and roll it became something else unfortunately. But I might be letting my leftist tendencies show a little too much with that statement. BTW, I belong to the San Francisco Folk Music Club, and we've had some epic jams there.

    Help save the youth of America
    Help save them from themselves
    Help save the sun-tanned surfer boys
    And the Californian girls

    When the lights go out in the rest of the World
    What do our cousins say
    They're playing in the sun and having fun, fun, fun
    Till Daddy takes the gun away

    From the Big Church to the Big River
    And out to the Shining Sea
    This is the Land of Opportunity
    And there's a Monkey Trial on TV

    A nation with their freezers full
    Are dancing in their seats
    While outside another nation
    Is sleeping in the streets

    Don't tell me the old, old story
    Tell me the truth this time
    Is the Man in the Mask or the Indian
    An enemy or a friend of mine

    Help save the youth of America
    Help save the youth of the world
    Help save the boys in uniform
    Their mothers and their faithful girls

    Listen to the voice of the soldier
    Down in the killing zone
    Talking about the cost of living
    And the price of bringing him home

    "Pray for the dead, and fight like hell for the living."

    Mary Harris "Mother" Jones (union and community organizer, born 1837 (Ireland) - 1930 (U.S.) )

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: So Long, Manny Ram : His first LP was folk, and it wasn't that good, although it's interesting in that it's him and I think his wife in their musical infancy. I vividly recall his death. I felt music had died when he did. Jerry Reed dedicated an LP to him. I admit a bias toward Reed, who was incredibly talented. This is one of the numbers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ts0qwRBx4c Unfortunately, Reed's voice at this point was compromised by smoking/emphysema. If you could hear this version from the LP, along with TIME IN A BOTTLE (unbelievable song. Talk about museum pieces!), it's absolutely mesmerizing. It would have brought tears to Croce's eyes.
    Posted by harness[/QUOTE]Jerry Reed was another cat I absolutely loved. Maybe the best fingerpicker since Chet Atkins. And Jim Croce's death was tragic. He was taken from us far too soon, much like John Lennon.

    Manny worshipping Manny .... was not.

    Joel49 is also very active in the folk circles. His stuff is thought-provoking.
    As for "leftist mentalities", that doesn't enter into conglomerate control of the music business. It all comes down to marketing and making $$$.

    Yeah, because of his politics he has remained relatively unknown. He's even been banned in some countries.

    His lyrics speak for themselves.

    "Inbetween Wars" and "It Says Here" are amazing anthems, even if you disagree with the meaning, they words are heart-felt..
