LISTEN TO : that's the way this world has got to be PART 2
Bobby Jameson-Chris Lucey-Too Many Mornings-Songs of Protest and Anti Protest-VEE JAY-1970-USA-HHF6837B
pure vinyl LPCD transfer
All in all a great set and a bonus the inclusion of the
whole LP by Bobby Jameson who initially recorded
the album SONGS OF PROTEST AND ANTI PROTEST
which VEE JAY went on to capitalize on a few times
without giving Bob a dime. A certain Chris Ducey
was originally slated to release an album on
the Mira offshot Surrey Records in 1965
but he dropped out due to Mira not being able
to keep up their end legally. Mira had gone and
printed up the album covers and had the song
titles and songs but they could not use them.
The decided to go to the streets and farm
a naiive talented busker hollywood hippie type
and lucked out with Bobby Jameson who was fresh
off a bad trip with another record company in the UK
(recording with the Rolling Stones) and right into
a boiling kettle of fate stew.
He got screwed over so bad, but the album is soo good.
Many great black jazz / soul session musicians back him up on this album
and Bobby sings for his life, going through various styles but still
keeping his theme needed to finish this project.
Just after this he worked with Frank Zappa
did some soundtrack work and a few solo albums
and an odd association with Rastus a band half way across the USA.
For in depth details and a chance to communicate with Bobby
visit one of his Blogs - lifeandtimesofbobbyjameson.blogspot.com.
His story to this point is heart wrenching and worth it to investigate
if you are under the impression hollywood and the music biz is something to waste your time with.
above - the original artwork that had to be changed to Chris Lucey
-- yep that's Brian Jones blowing mouth harp, he does not appear in the album
