After recording four songs inNewman signed to Dot Records and scored a hit the following year when "Cry, Cry, Darling" reached number four in the country charts. Newman's chart success prompted the Louisiana Hayride to hire him as a regular performer. The single, his biggest hit, spent two weeks at number two and also entered the pop Top The singer was unhappy with his Dot contract, though, and moved to MGM in Not content with his popularity at MGM, he switched labels again, signing with Decca in Now that he was an established artist, Newman began to integrate Cajun influences in such Top 25 singles as "Alligator Man" and "Bayou Talk.
He hit the country Top Ten at the end of the year with "D. One notable exception is 's Louisiana Saturday Night. Newman reached the Top Ten twice within six months in with "Artificial Rose" and "Back Pocket Money," but they proved to be his final hits.
His performances continue to excite many in Europe as well as America, and his Grand Ole Opry slot also kept him busy. First, it showcases Cash at a vibrant, conscious period of his career in the early- to mid-'70s.
His baritone voice is warm and full, his songs are lyrically thought-provoking and easy on the ears, and his vision and demeanor seem focused; you can tell he was an authentic working man who admired other working men and women. And, though Cash was well-known for covering the work of other great artists' songs, on "Ragged Old Flag" every song is his own, written exclusively by him -- and the results are great.
The fiercely proud, storytelling title track is an ode to past American wars, and the song's prose is stunning. Cash succinctly sums up, in his heartfelt way, the hardships "Old Glory" has endured through the many years and wars this country has fought, through the eyes of a smalltown gentleman who's been around for a while.
However, this minute record is far from a political diatribe, as most of the songs are classic Cash tunes that speak to good old-fashioned middle-Americans, living ordinary lives. Interspersed with this sing-along campfire music is the background vocals from the legendary Oak Ridge Boys see The Definitive Collection Oak Ridge Boyswhose presence lends a lushness to the otherwise stark but worthy Cash-written songs.
Overall, it's just simply hard not to like this simplistic album that not only captured a time period, but also captures Cash at a poignant moment in his long, storied career. While many of Cash's older live albums, and his later Rick Rubin-produced records get more attention see American V: A Hundred Highways"Ragged Old Glory" is a fantastic starting point to discover the Man in Black's admirable mindset and great music.
Albert King was the coolest guitar player of the blues scene, and his Shorty (You Keep Playin With My Mind) - Various - Promo Only Urban Radio: May 1998 (CD) solos and licks were blended with the funkiest grooves of the early seventies. The first 4 songs were recorded circsthe others inbut the high quality is the same. Actually, all the solos in this album are a lesson for blues players.
The licks can be simple, sometimes you can anticipate what's coming, but the tone of the guitar, the incredible voice-like quality of the phrasing As I wrote above, the band relies on soul and funk, this is not a "pure" blues album. But the band is so tight "Cold Sweat" is outstandingthe feeling so good, I think anyone interested in early seventies black music and rock can have a great time listening to this album.

It's Carlton's first blues-oriented album in many years. Featuring a large band with a complete horn section, Reese Wynans on B-3, Matt Rollings on Rhodes piano, Terry McMillan on piano, and others, Carlton is in fine, even understated form here. This group plays like a band with a soloist at its center, not like a bunch of paid hacks backing up a guitar whiz.
The title track is a B. This isn't the blues, it is blues, played soulfully and with considerable musicianship that forgoes flash for feeling, albeit muted by pristine production. Carlton's fans may puzzle over this one a bit because of its concentration on aesthetic beauty and relative purity, but those who weren't paying attention should sit up and take notice Tracklist 1.
Friday Night Shuffle 2. A Pair Of Kings 3. Night Sweats 4. Sapphire Blue 5. Slightly Dirty 7. Just An Excuse 8. This high-water mark by the band finds them softening their rougher edges and stretching out into jazz territory, yet still retaining a blues foundation.
There's not a bad cut here, with enough variety bottleneck slide, acoustic guitar, horns, and strings to warrant frequent late-night listenings. Unfortunately, leader Kim Simmonds lost his greatest asset when vocalist Chris Youlden quit for an ill-fated solo career after this recording. Youlden had one of the most distinctive voices in British blues, and Savoy would never fully recover from his exit. It is refreshing not to hear the drum machines and overproduced horn and keyboard arrangements that have become typical of a Carlton-led session.
This setting finds Larry playing very comfortably with harmonica whiz Terry McMillan, a legend in Nashville. Overall, Carlton achieved what he seemed to be striving for, although there are some rather embarrassing moments "Never Say Naw".
Recommended mostly due to Carlton's stretching out and fresh approach. Crazy Mama 2. Sleep Medicine 4. Cold Day In Hell 5. Anthem 6. Amen A. Never Saw Naw 8. Farm Jazz 9. Nothin' Comes Bogner Review by Robert Taylor Sleepwalk is slightly better than Strikes Twice thanks in part to the absence of Larry Carlton's toneless singing. The legendary Carlton feel is evident throughout this session, but "Blues Bird" stands as the high-water mark.
Carlton's faceless rhythm section does little to enhance the music as is usually the case with his solo effortsbut his playing more than makes up for this.
Despite sounding a bit dated, this is still worth exploring, especially for guitarists. Last Nite 2. Blues Bird 3. Song for Katie 4. Frenchman's Flat 5. Sleepwalk 6. Upper Kern 7.

According to an interview in The Sourcethis is the first song DMC wrote without writing any lyrics down, which is interesting, since his lyrics are much better here than on the rest of his album, where they often sound simplistic and kinda dopey. Here he's sincere, authentic and really kind of touching: "I seen you on the bus playin' video games; You beat all of us, I ain't sayin' no names.
You was a real cool cat; you never caused trouble; You would relax your mind doin' a crossword puzzle. You and Run would argue: who's better in ball? And I would sit back and just laugh at y'all. I miss ya, Jay, I ain't gonna front, I'd give anything to see you smoke one more blunt. There's not much distinction between the clean and dirty versions since, as you'd imagine, there's not much cursing on here, but there is a single usage of the word "nigga" silenced out.
So, while steering as far clear of the album as possible, you still might want to add this 12" to your crates. Even if you're realistically not gonna break it out and spin it too often, it's just nice to have it in there as a tribute to the great Jam Master Jay. Thursday, January 21, Kick In the B. Tuesday, January 19, Party, Party! What's not to love about this record? It's got an exclusive B-side remix, and as you can see it comes in a spiffy picture cover. So yeah, the song is called "What Ya Wanna Do?
It features the full-length LP Version a whopping 9 minutes and the shorter Edit the one they used for the video etc. There's also an instrumental, which is a little bit longer than the radio edit, but shorter than the LP version. It's a super fun joint, with a cracking break with hand-claps and a little Miami-style percussion, a deep groovy bassline and a funky guitar loop.
It's a pretty simple but entirely effective beat that plays the background for a plethora of MCs to just drop freestyle rhymes. The entire line-up is: Randy MacNat the Cat with a sick fast rap styleThe Syndicate sniper Donald Dwho kicks the infamously fun rap about his rodent problem: "There's a mouse in my house, so I bought a cat.
The cat ran away, 'cause now there's a rat. I'm on the attack with my baseball bat That one rat brought many others back. All through my house I set up traps; It seem like the rats have a map. But nowadays I don't know how to act, So now I feed the rats Shorty (You Keep Playin With My Mind) - Various - Promo Only Urban Radio: May 1998 (CD). In the Edit, each MC kicks 1 verse except Ice, who kicks 2but in the full-length version, everyone comes back for a second verse third in Ice's case.
What's interesting is that the Edit doesn't just play the first "round" of verses or the second, but selectively picks what I guess they consider to be the best verse from each MC, so you get, for example, Randy Mac's first verse, then Nat the Cat's second and then Bronx Style Bob's first verse again. Well, this is that, but this Shorty (You Keep Playin With My Mind) - Various - Promo Only Urban Radio: May 1998 (CD) was clearly made for the heads who thought the original wasn't hip-hop enough.
This one still has some of the same guitar riffs and a big solo finishbut the emphasis is much more on the drums and all than the album version, which was a pretty substantial genre cross-over.
Which version you'll prefer will probably depend on how tolerant you are of rock music So I gotta go with the remix. So, you know, if you've already got the album, then getting "What Ya Wanna Shorty (You Keep Playin With My Mind) - Various - Promo Only Urban Radio: May 1998 (CD) But it's also got the remix of "Girl" and the pic cover and all, so it's a worthwhile crate staple considering it can usually be had for peanuts.
But it wound up being left off the soundtrack and going to Redhead instead; but that didn't stop it from being a huge hit. And it should be pointed out that while Teddy Riley gets arrangement credit and Joe the Butcher mixed it"Do the Right Thing" was actually written and produced by Markell Riley a. This is just one of those timeless rap hits Having grown up in the time this came out, I don't even have to play this song to quote you guys the lyrics: "Brothers are stealin' and dealin' and big wheelin', And to a younger mind, that stuff is appealin'.
So what do they do? They gather up a crew, Go out and steal and rob, instead of getting' Shorty (You Keep Playin With My Mind) - Various - Promo Only Urban Radio: May 1998 (CD) job.
Now your mother tried to bring you up better than that; The same way she loved you, you loved her right back. But now you think you're grown and you argue a lot Over money you got from dealin' stuff on the block.
Now you're not the only one in the world that has problems; Keep your head straight, and you can surely solve them. Even those distinctive Teddy Riley horns somebody needs to bring that sound back!
Wait; what? I asked Kingpin about this in my interview with him back in and he answered, "Yeah. I didn't understand that, though. I went to the movies and saw that, and I'm like, 'Ok.
They're chasin' monsters through walls, they're killing monsters, and then they're doing the right thing? It was a check, though. I just didn't get it, personally. But really, there's basically two proper singles, with matching picture covers shown above. First is the yellow. And the A Capella is self-explanatory. So let's compare the other three mixes. The US Street Mix is like the version you're familiar with, the album version, the version they use in the video, etc.
Except they remove the sung hook and replace it with a vocoder version. And there's additional scratching - some during the hook, and especially at the end, where the DJ is really allowed to go for solo.
The back-up singing is also removed from the shout-outs at the end. The 12" mix is similar, but a lot more chopped up. It opens with just the "UFO" sounds, and the whole instrumental is constantly being scratched and juggled around by a DJ I presume WildStyle is doing all the scratching on all the mixes, but it's not specified in the credits.
Even Red's vocals are sometimes stuttered. We also get to hear more from the singers Guy? Labels like to remix hit records, because it's easy to sell a record that's already a hit.
But records that are already perfect the first time also don't need remixing; and we're given a bunch of inferior versions for no good reason. But this mix is actually an interesting, compelling alternative. I can't see it replacing the original, as that's the most clean and natural sounding version, but this is a funky extended mix that shows off everybody's talents.
So if you like "Do the Right Thing" at all, you'll have to appreciate this mix. So, ok, there are no curse words in the any of the mixes; so what is the US Radio Mix? Well actually, surprisingly, it's not just a slightly trimmed version of the Street version.
In fact, it's substantially longer. It's like the US Street Mix, but the singing is brought back though we hear the vocoder briefly, tooincluding the extra vocal flexing we heard in the 12" Mix. Oh, and this mix also features a little vocal introduction with someone saying "yo Red, kick that one;" and there are a few other little added details like that throughout the extra couple minutes. Finally, we have the Butcher Mix. The label doesn't say so, but I think we can safely assume this remix is performed by Joe the Butcher.
This is as broken down as it gets. Joe is mixing up just the drum and bassline, sometimes juggling the bass note for note for the short duration. That's it; no vocals or anything else. It's pretty cool as a bonus track.
Ok, now we come to the green cover, which I actually prefer So I prefer the cover So basically there's two new remixes. The Jazzy Remix really isn't so jazzy It's got a funky congo break, and a cool little bassline This is listenable, the bassline starts to get pretty catchy by the mid-point, and it's neat that Red changes up the shout-outs at the end calling out different countries instead of US citiesbut it's nothing to go out of your way for. As Redhead raps, the beat changes to other breaks and sample sets.
I don't know if I can say it's really any good, but somebody's at least trying to get creative with it, and bring in some funky new scratches and elements.
All in all, I've gotta call the green remix 12" a miss. Dedicated Redhead Kingpin fans will get some enjoyment out of this I did - hehbut it's really nothing I can recommend. The yellow 12" is definitely better So you're probably better off just picking up Redhead's album or this nice little white label. But if you're a fan of some good new jack swing, I think the yellow 12" will be worth your time.
