Another Saturday night

Post by motorsmell »

IMG-20221014-WA0017.jpeg
Around the time of the 001 set Lucinda did a great 2 hour guest appearance on flipside radio. She selected some tunes she and Joe would play at home and this came up as one of Joe's favourite records. I got it a while ago and love it! Also it has the original "before I grow too old" on which Joe latter did with the mescaleros. Listening to these tunes you can hear a direct influence to Joe's post clash stuff...anyway I can advise the purchase of this...it's tasty

P.s

I have zero idea why the photos are this way up

Thanks for the recommendation!

Listening now and I'm very much enjoying it. I did a little reading on the context of the album and apparently it's something of a cult classic in the UK.

I'm in the Southern US and had never heard of Louisiana "swamp pop" before, so this is a revelation!

I had checked out the original Bobby Charles version of Before I Grow Too Old but had no idea Joe's version was a cover of a cover. I love learning about stuff like that.

The Johnny Allen version of Promised Land is a great tune.
Promised Land is also one of the last good Elvis rockers from the 70's.

This is a song that I do sometimes in my set, I always thought it was Fats who did it first and I loved it when Joe covered it.

Ah perhaps it was Fats, I just assumed this was the original. Cheers, it's a great track

Yeah Fats Domino.

Interestingly it was also covered by Beats International on their 'Let Them Eat Bingo" album. The same album with "Dub Be Good to Me" that samples "The Guns of Brixton". Though there's no Clash/Simonon credit listed.

I think it's great I've got the vinyl and enjoy it. Recently there's been a digital upload of it with extra tracks but no physical cd.

I have a rip of my vinyl with artwork if you need an upload.

Just "Nerves" which was a b-side. The digital download adds a couple of extra tracks from later singles I think. Will upload soon.
