    3:22

    From the album In My Own Time

    Yesterday any way you made it was just fine,
    So you turned your days into night-time,
    Didnt you know, you cant make it without ever even trying?
    And somethings on your mind, isnt it

    Let these times show you that youre breaking up the lines,
    Leaving all your dreams too far behind,
    Didnt you see, you cant make it without ever even trying?
    And somethings on your mind.

    Maybe another day youll want to feel another way, you cant stop crying,
    You havent got a thing to say, you feel you want to run away
    Theres no use trying, anyway.
    Ive seen the writing on the wall,
    Who cannot maintain will always fall,
    Well, you know, you cant make it without ever even trying.

    And somethings on your mind, isnt it
    Tell the truth now, isnt it
    And somethings on your mind, isnt it

  • SAME OLD MAN by Karen Dalton

    2:51

    'Same Old Man' appears to be a variation of one of my favourite songs, 'Old Man At The Mill', done by various people such as Ian Matthews, the Dillards and Doc Watson. This is the slowest version, but I like it too, particularly Karen Dalton's unusual voice (some raise similarities with Billie Holiday's).

    A cult singer, 12-string guitarist, and banjo player of the New York 1960s folk revival, Karen Dalton is not widely known, despite counting the likes of Bob Dylan and Fred Neil among her acquaintances (see photo of them in the slideshow). She only recorded a few albums and her voice was not what you would call mainstream. The Band's Katie's Been Gone, included on The Basement Tapes, is rumoured to be about Dalton.

    Her albums are available at places such as Amazon. I have put together a slideshow video for this song.

    Comments and ratings are welcome.

    In the meantime, here is a version of Old Man at the Mill I did on my other channel:

    Here is an excellent article that sums it up including great insight from Karen's daughter.

    My favorite singer in the place was Karen Dalton. Karen had a voice like Billie Holiday's and played the guitar like Jimmy Reed. - Bob Dylan (from Chronicles, Vol.1)

    All I can say is that she sure can sing the shit out of the blues - Fred Neil.

    3:10

    The Carpenters recorded Reason to Believe for their second LP, Close to You, in 1970. Although some may remember Rod Stewart's version, I believe the late, lovely voice of Karen Carpenter along with her brother Richards fine arrangement makes the day for this song!

  • Karen Dalton - Katie Cruel

    2:22

    Karen Dalton - Katie Cruel
    Katie Cruel is a traditional American folksong, likely of Scottish origin. As a traditional song, it has been recorded by many performers, but the best known recording of the song is by Karen Dalton on the album In My Own Time. The American version of the song is said to date to the Revolutionary War period., the full lyrics are:

    When I first came to town,
    They called me the roving jewel;
    Now they've changed their tune,
    They call me Katy Cruel,
    Oh, diddle, lully day,
    Oh, de little lioday.

    Chorus
    Oh that I was where I would be,
    Then I would be where I am not,
    Here I am where I must be,
    Go where I would, I can not,
    Oh, diddle, lully day,
    Oh, de little lioday.

    When I first came to town,
    They brought me the bottles plenty;
    Now they've changed their tune,
    They bring me the bottles empty,
    Oh, diddle, lully day,
    Oh, de little lioday.

    Chorus

    I know who I love,
    And I know who does love me;
    I know where I'm going,
    And I know who's going with me,
    Oh, diddle, lully day,
    Oh, de little lioday.

    Chorus

    Through the woods I go,
    And through the bogs and mire,
    Straightway down the road,
    And to my heart's desire,
    Oh, diddle, lully day,
    Oh, de little lioday.

    Chorus

    Eyes as bright as coal,
    Lips as bright as cherry,
    and 'tis her delight
    To make the young girls merry,
    Oh, diddle, lully day,
    Oh, de little lioday.

    Chorus

    When I first came to town
    They called me the roving jewel
    Now they've changed their tune
    They call me Katy Cruel
    Oh, diddle, lully day,
    Oh, de little lioday.

    Origins

    The opening verse of the song bears a strong resemblance to the Scottish song, Licht Bob's Lassie, whose opening verses mirror the song in both notional content and form.

    First when I cam' tae the toon
    They ca'd me young and bonnie
    Noo they've changed my name
    Ca' me the licht bob's honey

    First when I cam' tae the toon
    They ca'd me young and sonsie
    Noo they've changed my name
    They ca' me the licht bob's lassie

    Licht Bob's Lassie would appear to tell a story about a camp follower or prostitute:

    I'll die my petticoats red
    And face them wi' the yellow
    I'll tell the dyser lad
    That the licht bob I'm tae follow

    Feather beds are soft
    And painted rooms are bonnie
    I wad leave them a'
    And jog along wi' Johnny

    Oh my heart's been sair
    Shearin' Craigie's corn
    I winnae see him the nicht
    But I'll see him the morn

    The imagery about dyeing petticoats is shared by the Irish Gaelic lament Siúil A Rúin.

    Percy Sledge feat.Michael Bolton - When a Man Loves a Woman
    (Live Duet from VH1 Center Stage)

    When a Man Loves a Woman is a song written by Calvin Lewis and Andrew Wright which was recorded by Percy Sledge in 1966 at Norala Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama. It made number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B singles charts. It was listed 53rd in the List of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 greatest songs of all time. The sidemen for this recording included Spooner Oldham, organ; Marlin Greene, guitar; Albert Junior Lowe, bass and Roger Hawkins, drums. The music is built around a commonly used descending bass line chord progression as in Pachelbel's canon, or Bach's Air on the G string.

    It was later covered by Michael Bolton in 1991, whose version also reached number one on the U.S. pop and adult contemporary singles charts (Bolton received a Grammy Award for this song). The Michael Bolton version has the distinction of being the last number one song to chart on the old Billboard Hot 100 charting system which relied on sales and airplay reports before switching over to Soundscan.

    Barbara Mandrell recorded a country version of the song that same year. The song has also been recorded by Jerry Butler, Art Garfunkel, Luba, and Karen Dalton.

  • Karen Dalton Tribute

    3:25

    Here is a wondeful performance by the great singer Karen Dalton, too young disapperaed, long underrated but recently rediscovered.
    Karen Dalton (born in Enid, Oklahoma, of Cherokee and Irish origin, 1938 - 1993) was an American folk singer and banjo player associated with the early 1960's Greenwich Village folk scene, particularly with Fred Neil and the Holy Modal Rounders as well as Bob Dylan. Her bluesy, world-weary voice is often compared to that of iconic jazz singer Billie Holiday. She sang blues, folk, country, pop, Motown - making over each song in her own style. She played the twelve string Gibson guitar and a long neck banjo. Her second album, In My Own Time (1971), was recorded at Bearsville studios, produced by Bob Dylan's former bass player Harvey Brooks, with liner notes by Fred Neil, originally released on Michael Lang's (Woodstock promoter) label, Just Sunshine. The cover photos were taken by Elliot Landy, and piano player Richard Bell guested on the album. Less common is her first album for Capitol, It's So Hard to Tell Who's Going to Love You the Best (1969), re-released by Koch Records in 1996. Known as the folk singer's answer to Billie Holiday and Sweet Mother K.D., it is said that the Richard Manuel song Katie's Been Gone, from The Band's The Basement Tapes, was written about her. Both Dalton's albums were re-released in November 2006.
    Enjoy Karen Dalton's style!

    You see old pics of Karen in Greenwich Village singing around a mic with Bob Dylan & Fred Neil. Great bluesy singer, not unlike Billie Holiday. However, Karen didn't write, and she had problems with codeine, so folk-boom fame passed her by. She finally was able to make 2 albums in the late 60's / early 70's, but retreated from the world thereafter, and passed away in 1993

    The Portuguese group voices the emerging ecologic movement, a natural and spontaneous movement with no leaders or borders, that manifests itself locally on a planetary level. Their sound mixes simplicity with psychedelia, mestizo with mysticism, ecology and
    activism, singing consciousness and diversity in one tone.

    //SEEDS, ROOTS, FLOWERS AND FRUITS

    Everything starts from a seed. Or does it? A cycle doesn’t have a beginning or an end. It repeats itself, but never in the same way - It’s an infinite spiral. “Seeds, Roots, Flowers and Fruits” is a homage to the natural cycles, to the four seasons, the four
    directions. The twelve songs are a representation of the twelve months in a year and the twelve zodiac signs through which the Earth travels since It was only a seedling planet.

    The influence of multicultural Lisbon is evident when you listen to a Jamaican Reggae with melodies that could be from either the Balkans, Ethiopia or Eritrea. Desert Blues with a taste of Indian Folk and American Funk, or even a Moroccan Gnawa with traits of the
    Portuguese song and Rock experimentalism. Each song is a unique experience, not giving away what genre the next track will be.
    There is consonance, however, in the purity of the message, the harmonious aesthetics and the respect for diversity itself. These are values that guide all the work, and the different styles are explored with the honesty of someone who has been to the roots to
    find the different elements that make up the whole. It is, at heart, an ancient Portuguese heritage: To contemplate the oceans not as a barrier but as a bridge that not only allows us to discover the other but, above all, to understand who we are.

    //GUEST APPEARENCES

    In their debut, Terra Livre wanted to bring along people that are part of this movement (even if they might not know it). The outstanding Manu Chao dives into “Dança da Semente”, a hymn for Seed freedom. Silvério Pessoa, the pernambuco singer of the award-winning band “Cascabulho” and also enjoying a successful solo career, reinforces
    the universality of the song “Mãe Terra”. Together in this journey are also the Algerian singer - Nazim Lachachi, along with a horn section from Kumpania Algazarra - Francisco Amorim and Paul Robert, and percussionists from Terrakota - Nataniel Melo, Paulo das Cavernas and Márcio Pinto.

    //WHERE DOES EARTH MUSIC COME FROM?

    They met 10 years ago in the magical mountains of Sintra, where they founded “Terra Livre”, a communal land that works as an experimental and co-creation lab which allowed them to practice what they preach, be it through sustainable agriculture, natural building or the minimising of human ecological footprint. Gonçalo Sarmento (Terrakota), Leo Marsh (Chapadux, Green Echo) and Rodrigo
    Cordomar (Green Echo), three singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists join forces with Adri Dias Pereira (Chapadux, Green Echo), a master in woodwinds and electronics, and with a solid rhythm section composed by Pedro Pereira (Pás de Probleme, They Must be Crazy) and Tiago Santos (Opaz).

    In a time when the planet’s resources are scarce, and the rivers and oceans are polluted to the point of having more plastic than fish, and with the forests disappearing at an unbelievable speed, the urgency of a paradigm shift and the love of music keeps the group united for a Free Earth - TERRA LIVRE.
