    Unheard Song From The Mojo Sessions?

    Yup! And at various times in 99. A nice version from 99 is from the Rockpalast show

    12 string guitar in a box

    ^ I agree with you. As the owner of 7 - 12 strings (3 RIC's), I don't need a pedal. But it's a nice option for those that can't afford the real thing.

    I don't know. Cheaper than buying an electric 12 and an acoustic 12, but the sound isn't really quite there for me.

    Yeah, that was the first thing I thought of. And Ben can play that in his sleep. The Heartbreakers of course covered "Green Onions" on the Fillmore run, wasn't it?

    "Help Me" is "Green Onions" but with lyrics. There's out fun fact for the day lol
  9. I can not tell you how stunned I am to have learned that Mike Campbell plays slide guitar on the Wallflowers Sixth Avenue Heartache, 😳 I've loved that song since its release and would rank it fairly highly as a song overall. Looks like Mike joined Jacob back in 08 onstage at the Troubadour. I read that George Harrison called Mike after he heard the song and said jokingly something to the effect of "so you are doing me on slide guitar now I see" 😎

    That was cool. Very "Booker T". Duck Dunn would have been proud. I need to listen some more, but that was some pretty solid blues from the Heartbreakers.

    Totally agree with that sentiment. A bloated album that would be much more palatable if they trimmed the fat. But as I said in another thread, if there's anything this band is good at, it's putting great songs in the vault as trash instead of releasing them. Honestly, the EP is a thing, and with the digital age being a thing for 25 years, when they were between albums, they could've and should've released stuff they knew was great but didn't fit their overall album mold as digital EPs and sell them for 8 bucks.

    Thank you so much! After watching the "Making of Mojo" mini documentary years ago, I instantly wondered why "Help Me" wasn't on the actual album. I agree it would have made it a better album. Would have been a great live song, too.

    ^ Yeah.... amazing! Didn't even remember so much of the track being included in that Mojo promo doc/video. Kinda random, considering it wasn't making the cut for the album. (Or maybe it actually did, up til the very last minute....) Just ironic to me, how Mojo became such a loong, winding and slightly scattered 15 course meal, even with no less than three of their better and tastier servings of the era left in the sink... Very prolific era. Or perhaps a few less optimal last minute decisions.... (I've said it before, how I think Mojo would've been a much better album held at perhaps 12 tracks and including the castaways. This is even more obvious to me with Help Me added to the potential line up.)

    Great job, thanks!

    I interviewed Benmont Tench!

    that was an amazing interview! I just wish you squeezed a story about John Lee Hooker out of Mr 88 keys! I hope you get to meet him at the show in a few days so I can be even more jealous!

    Thanks for the share! Great! As much as Im not very much certain about those lyrics, so to speak... What's the deal with the International Personal Assistants Association anthem approach... donknow.. Musically though.. must say, this is so far the finest "blues" effort ever to surface by TPATH, IMO. Really groovy execution, perhaps especially by Ben (I always loved when he got to pump it out like this) and then.. all of it framed by that almost spooky presence of Tom's dry wit and comments.. Then again, Two Men Talkin' studio version, that showed up only on An American Treasure last year, was another "blues" high mark in my book, so who knows what else is left in the vaults in terms of blues gems. They seemed bent on playing this type of material in what was to become their latter years and to include some of it on their albums too.. but so far.. two of their finest "blues" moments proved to be discarded for other tunes.

    Musician biography book recommendations

    Has anyone read Cash - the autobiography of Johnny Cash? Bought a copy based on a recommendation... I've only just started & so far I'm really enjoying this. As you'll imagine, based on his songwriting, Johnny Cash creates a compelling & interesting story of his life. Oh, man, he can write! This is someone with a vivid memory - he mentions how he remembers & plays songs he's only heard maybe once or twice 20 or 30 years ago. He certainly seems to have the same recall for his own experiences. "Inside me, my boyhood feels so close, but when I look around, it sometimes seem to belong to a vanished world." And he's positive & life affirming too, even though bad things happen - he seems resilient & insightful, not one to focus on despair & misery. (Though, I'm only a little way in.) He's sincerely thankful for his life in the world of music & generously praises other people. As Audrey Hepburn once said (elsewhere, no, not in Cash) : "You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him." Johnny Cash was smart & funny & engaging. "The airforce taught me the things every military service imparts to its enlisted men - how to cuss, how to look for women, how to drink and fight - plus one skill that's pretty unusual: if you ever need to know what one Russian is signalling to another in Morse code, I'm your man."
