         NICE POST, MOONSLAY....BRAGG IS ONE OF MY FAVES, AND I HAVE MANAGED TO SEE HIM 3X IN CONCERT HERE IN THE US...HE IS ALSO KNOWN FOR BEING ONE OF THE FOREMOST LEFT-WING ACTIVIST MUSICIANS ON THE PLANET, UP THERE WITH JACKSON BROWNE AND OTHERS WHO ALSO WALK THE WALK...HERE IS ONE OF MY FAVES...

    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.) )

    He helped the Red Sox cheat to a World Series title.. Sorry, two titles.  Live with that.

    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.

    Who'd have thought a Manny thread would involve such an in-depth discussion into music/lyrics. I wonder if Manny has any profound musical interest.

    In Response to Re: So Long, Manny Ram : Good stuff, Carnie . I liked Setzer's band. There have been some terrific guitar players. Reed had his own innovative style. He loved to create different licks and write songs. But he admitted to not having the desire to be the student of the art form that Chet was. I think creativity epitomizes talent. Have you ever heard of this guy? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EBw_da7BZk

    I hadn't heard of him. Very nice though. He reminds me a little of Leonard Cohen.

    In Response to Re: So Long, Manny Ram:
    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
    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.

    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..

    Before I crash for the night another great nearly unknown lyricist/musician comes to mind: Nick Drake...

    A song for the "Pink Hatters"
    from moon....

    I saw it written and I saw it say
    Pink moon is on it's way
    And none of you stand so tall
    Pink moon gonna get you all
    It's a pink moon
    Hey, it's a pink moon
    It's a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon.
    It's a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon.

         Nick Drake is another one of my faves, and a truly underappreciated musical genius...His docu-bio "A Skin Too Few" is not easy to watch but it is a powerful portrait of the impact of chronic depression and drug (esp. marijuana) addiction on a person's life...A musical genius who was overwhelmed by his past and died of a likely para-suicidal Elavil overdose...For what it's worth, he was better known and admired in Europe than here in the US...Anyhoo, great post moonslav...

    Re: So Long, Manny Ram

    Oh, the irony! That was the song that introduced me to his music.
    Years later, Reed's body of work was my motivation for leaving New England!
    I got to know him and his band members, as well as Vector music Pub. Alumni.
    Thus my bias toward him and his legacy.

    Here's more of 'the other side of him'

    Re: So Long, Manny Ram

    Nothin' like a good ole' hoe-down!

    Ya know, Carnie, before I came to Nashville, I saw Reed for the first time in that Statler Bros. gig they do in Staunton, VA every year. There was over 100,00 people there. I couldn't believe it. Nor could Reed. Despite that, he had a unique way of connecting with his audience, beyond his music.

    Years later, he did a good-will tour for charity with Waylon Jennings. On one stage, I witnessed Waylon, then Reed, then Hank Williams JR. Then Red/Waylon came on together and, man, did sparks fly. The place went totally electric.

    I think you'll get a kick out of this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyCdR6hPH60&NR=1&feature=fvwp

    Please watch it in it's entirety.

    Jerry Reed was a great songwriter and innovative guitar picker. He was a credible singer for a songwriter. He went into acting and gave his characters depth. Then he began producing flics (Bat 21- a war flic starring Gene Hackman - was his best). He was a 5-star talent.

    Question: Can you name any other performer that tackled as much? And if so, how does their body of work compare at all levels?
