Go To Hell  performed by Nina Simone  1967
Recommended by jeanette [profile]

I went to a funeral today, which is never going to be the most pleasant way of spending time. However, it was a humanist service and, as such, an appropriate and touching way to remember the individual concerned. Music was played, including Why? by The Communards: a great thing. Not neccessarily a brilliant song, but a very unusual choice.

Of course, events like this spark everyone off thinking and talking about their own fitting ends. I nominate this; a bit of Nina would be great at a funeral. I love the black farce of this track, and what a great piece of final gallows humour to play a song about hell as the curtains close around your coffin in the crematorium.

from Silk & Soul (RCA SP-3837)
available on CD - Nina Simone And Piano! / Silk & Soul (Camden Deluxe)

  22 Dec 04 ·ronin: I can't believe someone _knows_ this song! Thank you--it's popped in and out of my mind for years, and I never knew who sang it. It's a song for the dawn--a humid summer sunrise song.
  23 Dec 04 ·n-jeff: This song is already listed with a lot, and I mean a LOT of comments. See Mrs Bluebird (not capitalisation!).
  12 Jan 05 ·tiltpak3234: The first verse of Mrs. Bluebird is very clear, but have you ever truly made out the second verse??
  04 Jun 06 ·Judyd: I am trying to find out more about this band that I loved so much. Charlie Hanscom was a drummer with them for a while? He is probably who you met from LSU? Where can I find out more? Judy
  17 Jun 06 ·Judyd: Charlie was my boyfriend. He is now passed away. He replaced the original drummer for a while. They toured So California. I have the album cover. I am trying to find people who were on that tour for his grown children to know more about those days.......... Judy
  17 Jun 06 ·Judyd: Charlie Hanscom passed away from an accidental drowning where he saved a woman's life who could not swim. He died 5/22/2006. He lived in Pineville, La. He leaves 3 children and 3 Grandchildren. He was the drummer for a while in EC and also worked with managing the Zombies back in the 60's. He will be missed. He never lost his love of music. He will be my guy forever and ever.. Judyj Forever Yours, Faithfully....
  26 Jun 06 ·Judyd: I am greiving and have a shattered heart so forgive me..... I had the date wrong. It was 5/23 that Charlie Hanscom passed on. I listened to the EC album today and it is soooo good. Took me back to happy times for sure. Linda has a great voice. Judyd
  28 Apr 07 ·Mac2: Anyone know what happend to Linda Lawley?
  28 Apr 08 ·rupertwalden: i first saw 'the kid' at a local place called 'bikini beach' in st. francisville, la. he was with a group called the 'neurotic sheep' from houston. he did not have his B3 then, probably a Farfisa, but it was obvious that he was an exceptional player. i later saw him with 'eternity's children'. i first saw them playing behind chicken wire at a fraternity blowout at LSU, probably '67. there were bands all over the place. when i later saw them in a real setting, it was love. i know that their recorded work is what we now have and can comment on - but live was the real way to appreciate them. i have tryed to remember songs from their live sets. when i first saw them they were a foursome, no guitar - but it was hardly missed as 'the kid' seemed to fill up all the gaps. in '68, roy disappered, and the next week they had a new drummer and a guitar player. i play drums and have long thought that i missed the 'audition' that might have changed my life. i recently learned that their 'management' choose the drummer and guitar man from another local band, so maybe i never really had a chance.......but live was something else. 'the worst that could happen'/ 'stoned souled picnic'/ 'it's your thing'/ 'sing a simple song'/ 'nowadays clancy can't even sing'--these are some of the live tunes that will always ring in my ears. they were 'jaw dropping' kind of things - you just wanted to say "WOW! I can't believe i just heard that!" i know a guy that was involved in their baton rouge management. he said they did Hollies tunes note for note in thier early days. i can only imaginge how great that was. I am sick to learn that some have passed away. i last saw linda singing backup for carole king at the new orleans jazz fest. carole pointed her out as a 'local girl' and she sang something on her own - she sounded as good, even better, than i remember from the 'old days.' i am so thankful that i was there to enjoy and appreciate 'eternity's children.' i did not see every 'incarnation' of the group, but what i did enriched my musical life. i am so glad that there are others that also are 'turned on' to them. it's so great to have their recorded stuff, but a real time machine comes along, i invite you all back to '66-'70 to hear the 'real deal.' you will enjoy the trip - of that i am most certain!!!
Your Love Is Free (Just Like The Wind)  performed by Cilla Black  1967
Recommended by Mister C [profile]

A track unearthed from the archives in 1997 by Cilla's son, its fabulous and should have been a single.

Holiday  performed by Bee Gees  1967
Recommended by Ozmala [profile]

Whenever anyone asks for sad song recommendations, this is the first that comes to mind. It's a heartbreaking song. It's not really *depressing*, it just heartbreaking.

from Bee Gees 1st (Polygram Records)
available on CD - Best of Bee Gees

Killing Floor  performed by Jimi Hendrix Experience  1967
Recommended by kaptnunderpnts [profile]

the song is live at the monterey pop festival. it is one of the cleanest, tightest, most rippin' songs i've ever heard from the jimi hendrix experience. one of the best classic rock guitar songs.

from Jimi Plays Monterey
