Música Còsmica Americana (1974 #1)


El bon mutxatxo i melòman Biel Ferriol (a.k.a. En Bryan Ferry de Muro, a.k.a. dj Bill & Ferry), ens citava grans discs de 1972 dins un comentari a l´entrada Sandy & Syd i la comuna francesa.

Idò Biel m´has donat una idea per aquest 2014: anar recordant els millors àlbums (i cançons) de 1974

NOTA: Esper no ser s´únic orfe d´en Waits que enguany farà 40 tacos...Nascuts al 74: estau convidats a enviar els títols dels vostres discs favorits d´aquell any a orphans.of.waits@gmail.com


El criteri imposat per anar recordants els discs serà cronològic en funció de l´aniversari de la data de la seva publicació. Si bé per alguns àlbums és molt difícil saber-ho amb exactitut, com en el cas de l´obra mestra de Gram Parsons 

a.k.a. Es Cowboy més Pee-Ho del Cosmos Americà

 

#1-1974: GRIEVOUS ANGEL

Es va publicar post-mortem al gener d´aquell any, però no he tengut manera humana d´esbrinar el dia exacte (i vos pensaveu que tot surt a gugle!)



Al mateix temps, "Return Of The Grievous Angel" és una de les millors cançons de 1974, en gran part gràcies a la majestuosa col.laboració vocal d´Emmylou Harris.

Won't you scratch my itch sweet Annie Rich
And welcome me back to town
Come out on your porch or I'll step into your parlour
And I'll show you how it all went down
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town

And I remember something you once told me
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you

'Cause I headed West to grow up with the country
Across those prairies with the waves of grain
And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue sea
And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennesee

We flew straight across that river bridge, last night half past two
The switchman wave his lantern goodbye and good day as we went roling through
Billboards and truckstops pass by the grievous angel
And now I know just what I have to do

And the man on the radio won't leave me alone
He wants to take my money for something that I've never been shown
And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue see
And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennesee

The news I could bring I met up with the king
On his head an amphetamine crown
He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt
And lighted out for some desert town
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town

And I remember something you once told me
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you
