They say there are men who are blue like me in the stars Beards for the weird and bars for bizarre guitarmen Fortunately baby I'd already joined the force Good time train well it does not need any track It wins the race to the place where I'm gonna pack up Fortunately baby I'd already grabbed the sky All the days that the road has spent on me Judges shout you've got to slave to be a freeman Fortunately baby I am never coming back Good time train, good time train.
Weird of Hermiston I'm going to a wedding dressed in black I'm going to a party, won't be back And I'm not going with you. Trees are no longer a comfort Messages sad in the wires My hair is hung down with the blackest of rain that I'm feeling I'm going to the river, wash my tears I'm going to the mountains, cool my fears That I'm not going with you.
Skies are no longer a comfort Leaves turning black with the autumn The corn is hung down with the heaviest weight that I'm feeling I'm going to a funeral dressed in white I'm Album) to a nightclub, to sleep with night And I'm not going with you. Love is no longer a comfort, Never Tell Your Mother Shes Out Of Tune - Jack Bruce - Songs For A Tailor (Vinyl, Fantastic times are forgotten My heart is hung down with the saddest of rain that I'm feeling Rope Ladder to the Moon You asked me to a party to a house just by the moon You gave me silver loving the end was all too soon You asked me to the theatre in a place quite near the sun You gave me golden sunbeams your act was all in fun Rope ladder to moon!
You asked me to a meeting in a cottage in the snow You gave me central heating I can't forget the glow You asked me to a weekend down Album) the stormy sea You took me to a ceremony and the sacrifice — was me! You asked me to a stromcloud up near the rainbow's end Then you threw away the ladder and gave me to your friend You took me to a prison and you Album) its chief was me Then you locked me deep inside you and thew away the key Rope ladder to the moon!
Boston Ball Game 9. To Isengard The Clearout Total time Bonus tracks on remaster: The Ministry of Bag demo version Weird of Hermiston alternate mix The Clearout alternate mix The Ministry of Bag alternate mix Total Time With this set, Bruce seems to be shedding the blues roots he, Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker used as the foundation for Cream, now moving towards the more experimental world of the progressive musician. This album being recorded inthe songs still have somewhat of a simple feel, Never Tell Your Mother Shes Out Of Tune - Jack Bruce - Songs For A Tailor (Vinyl, compared to Bruce's later works, but the foundation is definitely there.
Another highlight for this prog fan is Rope Ladder To The Moona spacy song with a hist of eastern themes. This is a very good album, one that I find myself returning to frequently. With half of jazz rock pioneers Colosseum on board along with Mountain's Felix Papalardi, and with songs that will show up on Mountain and Colosseum albums, this album takes on an almost 60s 'super group' vibe, possibly an answer to Jack's bandmate's effort in Blind Faith.
But it's this lack of a real band that is this album's downfall too. Despite all the clever songwriting and excellent instrumental skills involved here, this still sounds like a 'solo album', which means a little bit better than a demo. There's a rushed unfinished feel to a lot of the production and a certain sameness that makes the songs somewhat numbing over extended plays. Having a real band on board would have pumped some life into these very deserving tunes.
Overall though, this is an excellent freshman effort from Jack Bruce, one of the best songwriters to come from the world of rock music.
Fresh out of Cream, JAcj Bruce went out shopping for heavy friends to make his debut solo album, and one can only be impressed by who he managed to lure back in the studio. Outside Harry Georgesson only present on the opening track, but remember Goodbye's Badge song?
Album) friends, uh?? Gladly the really heavy dude Leslie West was out of reach ;o. As for the megalomaniac JB, he sings, basses, pianoes, organs and even cellos on one track.
