Song Of The Day

16/4/17 – Bob Dylan And Johnny Cash – Girl From The North Country – 1969

Originally appearing on Bob Dylan’s second solo album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan released in 1963, he re-recorded the track as a duet with Johnny Cash and opened his 1969 album Nashville Skyline with the song. Although it starts off so well, the recorded version sounds like they were relying heavily on their legend to perfom the […]

Marvin Gaye And Tammi Terrell - Easy

Album Of The Day

Video Of The Day

15/4/17 – Marvin Gaye And Tammi Terrell – Easy – 1969 / Good Lovin’ Ain’t Easy To Come By – 1969 / The Onion Song – 1970

There can’t be that many complete albums of male/female duets by the same two singers. Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell were a musical marriage made in heaven releasing three duet albums on the Motown label. They scored many hits together in the late sixties starting with Ain’t No Mountain High Enough in 1967 reaching No.19 […]

Song Of The Day

14/4/17 – Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová – Falling Slowly – 2006

As possibly the last person on the planet to be aware of this song, the film, the academy award, it seems to fit in well with my duo thread, harmonies, boy/girl thing. I’m not sure how these threads start – one thing leads to another I suppose. I’m also not sure how songs like this […]

Song Of The Day

13/4/17 – The Civil Wars – Poison And Wine – 2011

Whilst we are on the subject of harmony duos, one of my favourites in recent years were The Civil Wars. Classed as Alt Country and unfortunately delivering the pain of that genre into real life, it seems their intertwining harmonies were closer than their relationship and after two studio albums they broke up in 2014 […]

Song Of The Day

12/4/17 – Zervas And Pepper – Abstract Heart – 2015

Yesterday I posted songs called World Of Pain and We’re Going Wrong, on a lighter note, winding our way through the valleys and the beautiful scenery, relaxing into the bucolic setting, the singing accents and of beautiful voices – we find ourselves in Wales for an unlikely sound echoing through the fields in melodious waves.

10/4/17 – Cream – World Of Pain / We’re Going Wrong – Copenhagen – 1968

Staying at Anekdoten singer and guitarist, Nicklas Barker’s flat in Stockholm comes with a list of privileges for which we are truly grateful. It’s a lovely place in a great location and apart from harbouring a real mellotron it also is home to a wonderful record collection. Over the next two weeks I will be […]
