Screw the lessons. Pick it up and teach yourself. You're learning just by holding the damn thing. Although it might take away from the smooth one and the on-the-rocks...

I'm organizing what we have so far ( to get us back on topic )

1.Beyond Here Lies Nothin' based on an old blues motif used in many songs
2. Life is Hard
3. My Wife's Home Town based on Willie Dixon's I Just Want To Make Love To You
4. If You Ever Go to Houston
5. Forgetful Heart
6. Jolene ( i'm pretty sure this beauty is based on something too )
7. This Dream of You influenced by Mink DeVille's Just To Walk That Little Girl Home
8. Shake Shake Mama possibly based on Mance Lipscomb's Shake Shake Mama
9. I Feel a Change Comin' On
10. It's All Good again loosly based on an old blues motif , like this one ( Slim Harpo's I Got Love If You Want It )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJncHZgBkWQ


About the quotations in the lyrics , if you feel up to it , we can start gathering those too :wink:


( This thread is for people who think stealin's is art , and also for those who want to research the sources of TTL 8) )

the Lipscomb and mink tracks dont sound much like the bob tracks, but then again i may be musically dense.
i miss mink deville. i was at one of his sessions many moons ago when he was signed, i remember the drummer telling me that mink is the only guy hes known who can into an empty room with a guitar, and 5 hrs later come back with nothing.

I thought that Mink Deville was the band and that Willy Deville was the person.

yea mink was willy he used to dress like a pirate. he even had his own language, and plenty of personality. he was great, would drive the studio guys crazy. a lot of these studio guys are like music school types, looking for wrong notes under the bed, its not about that its about the soul of the music.
like the great shuggie otis said ' i dont make records anymore because they wont let you make any mistakes, and the mistakes are the parts i like', or words to that effect.

i was a the book store and was reading thru the updated sounes book. that victor guy went off on bob pretty good. thats the guy who used to conduct himself like he was some sort of philosopher. you can never have enough philosophers.

This is Willy Deville on his own without Mink Deville. With Mark Knopfler I believe.
They had been working on the Princess Bride soundtrack in that same timezone, in the mid-80s.
He's a Southern Politician, a political man...

when i say mink i actually mean willy, he was from NY at least his music was very NYC, with a strong Pomus/Spector flavor, at least back then, but if my memory is right, he talked like if he was from New Orleans.

those were the days. he would drive people crazy. they dont make them like him anymore, anyone acst like him nowadays he either has to flee to europe of get institutionalized.

Has no one mentioned the obvious influence of Leadbelly's 'Midnight Special' on If You Ever Go To Houston?

I've reeeeaaaally tried with this album. I have to force it on every time just because I know it's gonna hit me sometime. So much stage play, it's hard to do it.

Willie DeVille made himself a little controversial over here by saying 'never trust a man who isn't on opiates'. I never totally believed his story about johnny thunders demise either, a little too innocent if you ask me. Good tunes though!

Why's that controversial, coming from him?

anyone who was involved in this thing or ours back in the day, can tell you that if you didnt partake you were thought to be a narc. that was true here in the usa dont know about the uk dont know if they had narcs.
back in the day if you showed up at a situation involving the music thing wearing brown wing tip shoes you were made unwelcome.
never ever take your new girlfriend to party where the majority of attendees are musicians, if you do make sure you tap your coat a few times to make them wonder if you are packing.

OK, so, again, why would anyone be surprised that Will Deville said 'never trust a man that isn't on opiates'? I mean, it's f'in Willy DeVille! Similar source would be Keith Richards saying the same thing. Why the controversy? Look at the source people! Not you, Goombay. (Although if you said it, I wouldn't be all shocked and yelling controversy either.)

it helps with the songwriting.
