Liberty and love
These two I must have.
For my love I'll sacrifice
My life.
For liberty I'll sacrifice
My love

Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson with the Cannonball Adderley Quintet - Back Door Blues [1961 - USA]

I attended a toys and collectibles expo over the weekend at the Santa Clara Fairgrounds and came home with way too many records as usual. I thought I bought a Shirley Scott LP, but when I got home I discovered that inside the sleeve was actually Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson's Back Door Blues. I had never heard of Cleanhead, but I'm huge Cannonball fan. Turns out I'm really pleased with the mistake; this is now one of my new favorite albums.

By the way, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson got hit nickname after some lye burned his hair off trying to conk it.

Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson - vocals
Julian "Cannonball" Adderley - alto sax
Nat Adderley - cornet
Joe Zawinul - piano
Sam Jones - bass
Louis Hayes - drums

Smashing Pumpkings - 1979

Pretty much my favorite music video of all time.

sing along...

Shakedown 1979
Cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed to the earth below

Double cross the vacant and the bored
They're not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin' dues down to see

We don't even care as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we'd go
Beneath the sound of hope

Justine never knew the rules,
Hung down with the freaks and ghouls
No apologies ever need be made
I know you better than you fake it to see

We don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of now
As you see there's no one around
