Music Diary – 31st August

Welcome back to my Music Diary – today for the 31st August!

The Rolling Stones

Mick Jagger, Bill Wyman, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts

Back in 1968 the Rolling Stones single „Street Fighting Man“ was released. The track is from the legendary studio album „Beggars Banquet“ which hit the shops on the 6th December 1968.

The Rolling Stones - Street Fighting ManHere’s the official video:

 

Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
‚Cause summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
Well what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock ’n‘ roll band
‚Cause in sleepy London town
There’s just no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution
‚Cause where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Well, then what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock ’n‘ roll band
‚Cause in sleepy London town
There’s just no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! Said my name is called disturbance
I’ll shout and scream, I’ll kill the king, I’ll rail at all his servants
Well, what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock ’n‘ roll band
‚Cause in sleepy London town
There’s just no place for a street fighting man
No

AC/DC – T.N.T. (Australian Edition)

AC/DC

Phil Rudd, Angus Young, Mark Evans, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott

On the 1st December 1975 the second AC/DC album „T.N.T.“ was released in Australia. And it also remarks the beginning of the classic line up featuring Mark Evans as the new bass player in the band. Like the debut „High Voltage„, also „T.N.T.“ was only available in Australia and most songs of the album were available later on the worldwide versions of „High Voltage“ and „Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap“.

Some remarkable things:
The song „Rock’n’Roll Singer“ is titled as „Rock’n’Singer“.
Can I sit next to you Girl“ was recorded before with the first AC/DC singer Dave Evans and released on 22nd July 1974 as a single.


The new version on „T.N.T.“ is slightly different and approximately one minute longer.
The Chuck Berry song „School Days“ was until 1997 only available on this release. Then it was available on the „Bonfire“ box set.

Woven Hand – Mosaic (Signed by David Eugene Edwards)

In 2009 I received three Woven Hand items for my collection:
From Sounds Familyre Records, which distributes some of the Woven Hand back catalogue in the United States, I got the US edtions of „Mosaic“ on CD and Vinyl and the album „Blush Music“.

Now you may ask: Why do you also collect foreign editions from Woven Hand? Aren’t they just the same? Well, yes and no. As a crazy music maniac I collect almost anything from my favorite bands – therefore all different versions of their releases. So the US editions of „Blush Music“ and „Mosaic“ on CD are really the same, apart from the better printing of the booklet. And to get a copy of the „Mosaic“ on Vinyl you had to order it from Sounds Familyre – that’s it 😉

Music Diary – 29th August

Welcome back to my Music Diary – today for the 29th August!

Michael Joseph Jackson (29th August 1958 – 25th June 2009) Today in 1958, Michael Joseph Jackson (singer, songwriter, member of The Jackson Five, The Jacksons) was born in Gary, Indiana. Starting his solo career in the seventies his big breakthrough was the legendary release „Thriller“ in 1982, which is still the best-selling album of all time. Nearly all songs charted the single charts worldwide and the video for „Thriller“ was game-changing at that time and is still a timeless clip.

 

Guiness World Records recognises Michael „Jacko“ Jackson, who was also called „The King of Pop“ still as the most successful entertainer of all time. On the 25th June 2009 Jackson died after suffering heart failure at the age of 50 years.
