The diffidence of the 70s (Part 18).

_____________
JOHN YAGER
Benson, Arizona

A million suns shine down
But I see only one
When I think I'm over you
I find I've just begun
The years move faster than the days
There's no warmth in the light
And how I miss those desert skies
Your cool touch in the night

Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
My body flies the galaxy, my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky
But they seemed so much kinder when we watched them, you and I

Now the years pull us apart
I'm young and now you're old
But you're still in my heart
And the memory won't grow cold
I dream of times and spaces
I left far behind
Where we spent our last few days
Benson's on my mind


Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
My body flies the galaxy, my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky
But they seemed so much kinder when we watched them, you and I


Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
My body flies the galaxy, my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky
But they seemed so much kinder when we watched them, you and I


A million suns shine down

When I think I'm over you
I find I've just begun

Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
My body flies the galaxy, my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky

Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
My body flies the galaxy, my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky

ENJOY!

The ignorance of the 90s (Part 9). [repost]

Festplattenarchaeologie:

Hallo Leute!

Dass es im Drum'n'Bass Bereich auch ausgesprochen gute Musik gibt, beweisst der heutige Track. Ich bezeichne so etwas auch gerne mal als "artificial intelligent music".

An diesem Lied hat mich so ziemlich alles fasziniert, damals, als es veroeffentlicht wurde; der dichte Klangteppich, der so frische Drum'n'Bass Rhythmus, welchen ja CIFFORD PRICE aka. GOLDIE zwei Jahre zuvor erstmals in die Charts brachte, das verstoerende Video mit der so ueberzeugenden Protagonistin KATHERINE MATILDA SWINTON aus Schottland und dem so sehr dazupassenden Gesang von GRANT FULTON und der geheimnisvollen ALISON GOLDFRAPP (hoppla, da klingelt's wohl bei manchen, wie?).

Und dass hier ueberhaupt gesungen wird? Jaja, so ist's, wartet nur ab. Alles in allem ist es ein Meilenstein in den 90ern fuer mich, da lag es nur nahe, mich mit diesem Stueck irgendwann einmal zu beschaeftigen. Hier nun ist das Resultat. Dazu wurden die drei bekanntesten Versionen verwendet.

ENJOY!

Floyd Anderson.

The relevance of the 00s (Part 21). [repost]

Hello all!

I wish you all the very best for 2015, and may the force be with you! :-)

Hard drive archaeology.

Recently I rediscovered the music from an outstanding French singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. This did happen because I browsed in the www for movie soundtracks, and there I found 'Narco', a french movie from 2004.

And I also am a fan of the music of FELA KUTI. But what relationship do have FELA and the today's artist I want to present you? It's the presence of the 'funky drummer' TONY ALLEN, who founded the real 'Afro Beat' in the 70s.

In the 70s and 80s he was the drummer in FELA's band, and in the today's tune his play fits perfect to the melancholic sounds of this French genius I introduce you today. I combined the session version from 2006 with the studio version from 2004 into a 'collage of sounds' I would call it.

ENJOY!

Floyd Anderson.

The decadence of the 80s (Part 51). [repost]

Festplattenarchaeologie:

Fuer diesen heutigen speziellen Tag (09-09-09) habe ich einen Song ausgewaehlt, der mich schon in meiner Zeit als Disc Jockey Anfang der 90er verfolgte, und der schon damals als ein absoluter Klassiker galt und an keinem Abend fehlen durfte.

Aber erst vor kurzem erlangte ich qualitativ adaequate Versionen davon. Aus dem Dance Mix und dem Dub Mix entstand schliesslich dieser nun vorliegende 'chronovisor mix'.

Listen conservative! ;-)

ENJOY!

Floyd Anderson.
