So freakin’ wierd – so damn cool!

What happended in the 80s?
People talk about all the shit people got into them in the 60s – have someone ever tried to find out what drugs did they took in the 80s?

Thanks to Azelia Banks track «Hood Bitch» I discovered the almost nursery rhymin-alike melody to the track «Babe, We’re Gonna Love Tonight» by the duo Lime, a synth pop duo from Montréal, Canada. Then it was that raw kinda soulful male vocal, I bet was a sample from some Four Tops outtake or something. But no, the thing was; Azelia Banks was sample both the melody and vocal from the Lime track.

R-497477-1165474722

The thing about Lime´s original song is that the melody is kinda cool – and so is the vocal to. The bands two vocalists were husbond and wife Denis and Denyse LePage. The husbond Denis has on this track this macho raw soulful vocals you hear on Four Tops records like «Reach Out I´ll Be There» and the wifes vocals is kinda like Kate Bush on helium. It´s wierd like hell, but somehow it works as a package, especially on this bouncy disco synth track!
There has been rumors about all the vocal part is done by Denyse, while Denis lipsyncs his vocals. How they did this live must only God knows!

What really freaks me out about this band is the video to «Babe, We’re Gonna Love Tonight». First of all, the song and video is from 1982 – and it’s their official video to the track!

Have you seen the music video yet?
Maybe you now understands why I asked on top of this post, self-quote follows; «What drugs did they take in the 80s»?

Here you´ll get shiny fake silk shirts, an soon-to-be-bold man with a pony tail, you’ll get a female in a kimono like white fake-silk thing with a blue belt, they both do a lovely dad-dance you just gotta love!

What else is there? A synth solo, flashing stars, split screen experiments, and glowing colorful early music video effects you also have to love!

Last but not least it looks like the odd couple is having fun, take note of how many times they seem to be start laughing! Count’em if you like!

Seeing this video does make me think about how important music videos has become for artists to promote their music. If someone would be making a music video like this these days, it would only be seen as ironic or a tribute to the really crap music videos the made back in the days!

Some more facts about Lime and Mr & Mrs Denis and Denyse LePage:
Lime has released 11 albums the first one in 1981 and the latest in 2002. The track «Babe, We´re Gonna Love Tonight» is taken from their second album – called just «Lime II». In 1988 the couple divorced and Denis LePage chose to continue the band with various vocalists.

And here’s where things get really wierd;
While writing this posts I found out that the singers of the band were not Denis og Denyse, but to other singers named Chris Marsh and Joy Doris – and they later those two toured and performed as Lime. I a later installment of Lime Chris Marsh would be replaced by Rob Hubertz.

Some more odd «facts”; Rumors even had it that Denis & Denyse wasn´t even a husbond / wife group but brother and sister!

…And hold on, there’s even more; Denis LePage, the writer and producer from the original Lime is still in the musicbusiness making music as transsexual act Nini Nobless (sic)

who is lime
Will the real LIME please stand up…? Please stand up!

Now what!
There´s so much loose threads in the history of Lime it would be cool if someone could tell me the real story of the band, some one like Denis LaPage aka Nini Nobless, Denyse LePage (maybe not that lastname now?), Chris Marsh or Joy Doris aka Joy Winter. That would have been so damn cool!


Untill the real story of Lime appears will be I scratching my head, while wondering who was the band Lime???
I still enjoy their second album on my stereo and boost it up to 11 everytime «Babe, We’re Gonna Love Tonight» comes on!

Classic: The smooth tones of “Aftertones”

Ever fallen in love with an album, even before hearing a single note of music? Just by looking at the cover. Janis Ian’s «Aftertones” was one of those albums for me.

IAN-Janis-1976-1
The first thing I recognized was the picture of Janis Ian behind the broken glass.
But wait, theres something more to discover here. Her hands is outside of the glass, like she’s trying to get out of the frame. Like she has been placed there against her own will, has she cried? Is she sad? It´s kinda creepy at first, but still touching. It’s like she begs the album buyer for help.

I was pretty sure this was a Hiphnosis Design aka Storm Torgerson (off Pink Floyd fame) cover. It had all the characteristics. I became almost obsessed about the sleeve and had to find out more about it. Who was the artist behind it? I tried googling (my wife call me the king of googling), and it seemed more difficult than I first thought it would be, but I didn’t gave up. Then all of a sudden I found it.

To my surprise it wasn´t a Storm Torgerson design; The photo was taken by Peter Cunningham (link here!) and the Design and sleeve art by David L’Heureux aka disco icon D.C. LaRue

The other design elements on the «Aftertones» cover is half dead white and yellow flower, the pencils and the postcards. Lying there, like someone had to rush and forgotten to post them. Everything is kept natural colors.

The books lined up has titles like  «How To Stay Alive In The Woods» by Bradford Angier. A dairy biography called «Notebooks 1935-1942» by Albert Camus…, Greenwich Village «Bluebook», A telephone book and  «The Outsider» by Colin Wilson.

Janis Ian
Aha! This was how she made the cover!

The mood on the cover say a lot about the music, because Janis Ian’s «Aftertones» sounds like a diary from England’s folksy countryside, to the jazz and blues of New York City, boiling traffic and people everywhere. Janis voice is smooth as silk, and her stories is intimate and she sings to you with a voice that sounds like a cross between the late Karen Carpenter and Joni Mitchell to newer names like Rumer and the late Eva Cassidy. The album features guest artists Phoebe Snow and Odetta.

Janis Ians “Aftertones” album was the highest selling album by a female performer in Japan ever, and reached Top Twenty in US, England Ireland & Holland.

A perfect slice of a classic pop folk blues softrock crossover album if you like!

The Read & Hear Q&A; Lonnie D Hillyer of Maggie’s Dream – solving the mystery!

One of my favourite bands from the early 90’s are Maggie’s Dream. They released one album, the self titled “Maggie’s Dream” back in 1990. The album was, and still is, a great hybrid of groovy retro rock, funk and soul. The band disbanded after a few years. They did just this one album – and it’s without doubt a great lost and largely overseen classic rock album!

Maggies Dream

The self titled Maggie´s Dream album can be downloaded on iTunes here!

The members of Maggie’s Dream were;
Robi Draco Rosa – Lead vocals
Tony James – Drums
Lonnie Hillyer – Vocals, bass
Raf – Vocals, guitar
Danny Palomo – Vocals

The bands retro-rock songs reminded me of Lenny Kravitz – and was released just a year after Kravitz released his classic debut “Let Love Rule” back in 1989. Being a dude who reads every word in an album cover – I became amazingly curious when I discovered the Maggie’s Dreams guys thanked my hero Lenny Kravitz in their liner notes. This has been a mystery for me ever since the albums release, back in 1990 until now. That’s 24 years ago! And now it seems like the answers finally here!

I’ve been searching to solve the link between the band and the retrorock/-soul star, and I found out a while back that Mr Kravitz had actually been working with the band according to a Wikipedia post about Maggie’s Dream.

I then happened to stumble upon Maggie’s Dream on YouTube and to my surprise I found several tracks from an unreleased album, rare video clips, interviews and music videos. On closer inspection, it seemed like this was posted by the band member Lonnie D. Hillyer.

A few mails back and forth proved I was right, it WAS Lonnie from Maggie’s Dream, and we agreed to do this Q&A / Interview

This picture is borrowed from Lonnie D Hillyers Flickr album, edited in black and white by me; Read And Hear editor GlennVU

The Read and Hear Q&A about Maggie’s Dream, Lenny Kravitz, the band members now and then and Lonnie D. Hillyers favourite records! 

I’ve been loving the Maggie’s Dream album ever since the release in 1990, and remember I was so surprised to read that you (the band) thanked Lenny Kravitz in the liner notes and has since 1990 been wondering what was the link between Maggie’s Dream and Lenny Kravitz? A few months back I read that he was once part of Maggie’s Dream.

Q: So here it goes; Would you like to share with me and the blog readers the true story about the Maggie’s/Kravitz link?

A: Danny Palomo and Raf Hernandez were friends Lenny years before Maggie’s Dream, then he sang on the demos of “Love and Tears”, “It’s A Sin” and one other track that did not make the album after we signed with Capitol Records. He sang on those demos before the band was signed and was already working on his debut album”.

Q: If Lenny was part of Maggie’s, was he somehow involved on Maggie’s self titled debut – probably uncredited? I could swear i hear his recognizable voice on at least a couple of the songs (backing vocals), especially on “Human”

A: Lenny Kravitz did not sing on the Maggie’s Dream album.”

Q: Do you still have contact with any of the Maggie’s Dream members? If you have contact with them, what are they doing these days?

A: The drummer (Tony James) and I speak occasionally and I saw Rob a few months ago in Buenos Aires Argentina (played a few t.v. promos with him). Haven’t spoken with Danny Palomo or Raf Hernandez in years”

Q: Have you and the guys ever considered to assemble the band back together again?

A: As far as putting the band back together, haven’t heard anything about that and I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon.

Q: What was the musical inspiration behind the classic Maggie’s Dream debut album? I sense a little retro-rock – and some Kravitz inspiration or is this only coincidental?

A: Lenny and we grew up on much of the same music and we’re all about the same age, so, many of the collective musical influences are similar with the exception of jazz; that is a heavy influence because of my father who played trumpet with Charles Mingus and he was a great jazz musician who played with some other heavy cats. There was a very talented singer Lenny worked named Tony Lemans with whose demo triggered that vibe but for many of us, it was a natural direction, musically.Tony was signed to Prince’s label Paisley Park Records. He subsequently was killed in a motorcycle accident.

Q: Robi Draco Rosa, former lead vocals in Maggie’s Dream has made several albums – and had major success as a writer and producer for i.e Ricky Martins “Living La Vida Loca” and solo. Tony James has worked with names like Cyndi Lauper, Charles&Eddie (what became of them?) Hugh Harris (great debut album) and Jeffrey Gaines. Then it comes to Raf I haven’t found any history besides his Maggies Dream years. What is your story after Maggies Dream disbanded?

A: Raf and Danny were in a band with Dan Reed named “Adrenaline Sky”; Raf also played briefly with Peter Lord Moreland (who was in the Family Stand) for a little while and after that he was writing and playing with this singer who was in the broadway show “Rent”, I think his name was Adam Pascal. Danny dropped out of the music scene all together and became a chef”

Q: Who have you worked with during the years? What has been the highlight of your career so far and who is the most inspiring to work with?

A: I’ve recorded with Billy Joel (River Of Dreams), Gordon Gano of the Violent Femmes, toured Love Spit Love (feat. Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs) and a few other artists. Also, auditioned for the Stones in ’93-94; also, played on a few Jeff Gaines albums as well as Charles & Eddie; I toured parts of Latin America a few times with Rob Rosa as a solo artist; there are some videos of various performances with Rob on YouTube, most notably an MTV International live performance which was probably Rob’s coolest band and the drummer in that video (Frank Ferrer) has been playing with Guns & Roses for the past 6 years or so. You can hear some of the artists with who I have played on my YouTube channel. As far as the most inspiring artist I’ve ever played with, well, that’s a tough question, I just like to play music… it’s all inspiring.”

Q: I love to get a sneak peek into the record collection of the ones when I do my Q&As – so now it’s your turn: What recordings are you’re all time favourite albums? Mention as many albums as you like!

A: Here are few of my favorite albums, not in any particular order:

1. Sly & The Family Stone Greatest Hits
2. “Fresh” by Sly and The Family Stone
3. “Gratitude” by Earth Wind & Fire
4. “Grace” by Jeff Buckley
5. “Thrust” and “Chameleon” by Herbie Hancock
6. Any Parliament Funkadelic album before 1990
7. “Songs In The Key Of Life” and “Innervisions” by Stevie Wonder
8. Any Jimi Hendrix album before his died.
9. “Solo Monk” by Thelonious Monk
10. “Superunknown” by Soundgarden
11. “Sea Of Cowards” and “Horehound” by Dead Weather
12. “Discipline” by King Crimson

15. Any Charlie Parker recording
16. Any John Coltrane recording
17. Graham Central Station
18.Betty Davis
19. “Heavy Weather” by Weather Report
20. Any African-American blues before 1960
21. Most bebop and hard bop
22. Bootsy Collins in the late 1970s

Q: What does the FUTURE for Lonnie D. Hillyer look like? Any cool protects going on?

A: I’ve been in Buenos Aires, Argentina working with the drummer / singer Andrea Alvarez for her new album. You can go to www.andreaalvarez.com for her info.”

Q: If there´s something you could say to my blog readers what would it be? Here´s your chance to say whatever you like!

The rebirth of Beyonce

Sometimes a change in concept makes magic. «Beyoncé» the self titled brand new album release from the artist known as Beyoncé – was hush released without any pre-promo ahead of it’s release. The biggest surprise is that this release is her best album in her career so far.

Beyonce by Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue March 2013_5

Beyoncé is laid back and her voice is cooler and more amazing than ever. I first heard this vocal change on her husband Jay-Zs latest album. It’s an adult album, full of sexual references – at times explicit without being pure porn ala Janet Jackson’s albums releases “All For You” and “Domita Jo”. On her new album Miss Beyoncé is experimenting and flirting with several genres, the music is eclectic flirting more with hip-hop than she has done earlier – a trick also the controversial Miley Cyrus did on her latest “Bangerz” album.

Beyonce-2013-Pictures-1024px

I bet Mr and Mrs Carter has boomed albums like Drake, Jay-Z, D’angelo, Prince,Miley and Ocean on their stereo before deciding the sound of her brand self titled 2013 album.

You can actually draw a line between Miss Janets «Velvet Rope”, to Miley Curys «Bangerz» to Beyoncé latest album. D’angelo around Voodoo and Prince lurks in the shadow, especially on the track «Rocket» which sounds just like a twin-sister or part II to D’angelos «Untitled» and the purple Prince´ bluesier soul moments like «Call My Name» or «The One», the song is really soothing and god damn sexy! Had to check the liner-notes both once and twice…to see if Prince is doing a guest appearance on the track (or is it a secret appearance by the Man? Maybe a payback for her guest appearance on «Purple Rain-medley» on 2004 the Grammy awards? Just speculating, or dreaming if you like!

Beyonce-River-Landscape-Behind-HD-Wallpaper-Vvallpaper.Net

The album production is close to Drake and Frank Ocean and she even sounds like she’s ripping off Miley Cyrus here and there, especially on the tracks where she raps. Yes, you read correctly – Miss B is even rapping on this album!
…She works on the album with song-writer extraordinaire Sia, Timbaland and Ryan Tedder. But the real gem here is the, until now, unknown producer Boots (take note of that name). His production skills is probably the best of the years since Mike Will Made It duties on Jay Z “Magna Carta Holy Grail” and Mileys «Bangerz». Boots, just like Mike Will, sings, produces, and plays a lot of the instruments used on his productions. 9 out of 14 tracks are produced by Boots.
Is Boots a pseudonym to Mike Will? Just speculating again.

beyoncefebruary2013gqcovershootbehindthescenes0570x420

I have mentioned both Drake and Frank Ocean earlier, as a possible musical influence, they both visits “Beyonce”. She also lets her hubby Sean Carter aka Jay-Z guest the album, no album without his participation these days and they even lets their little daughter Blue Ivy feature on the last track named «Blue» coincidencially? I don’t think so!

The album sleeve is all black, with just her name on it. Is this her “Black Album” back in 1988, and like Metallica did on their “Metallica” aka The Black Album, and is it a reference to the Beatles self titled album “The Beatles” aka the legendary «White Album»?

Click on the album cover to download the album through iTunes

By not including her self on the album sleeve, as she normally does, she makes a fresh start, she makes gives her album a bit of a mystique. A secret, just like the sudden not-promoted, just like whoooph there it is! And there it was! She somehow erase her own former musical concept and starts a new one!

ratchet

Beyonces «Beyonce» is a game changer, a new start
The album is an up a modern affair, a grown up 2013 style, modern and funky – a coffee table album, the music answer to coffee table book, an album you would love to play to your friends, and will follow you and your life. I recommend it everyone around me ´cos this is a real grower of an album!

Classic albums: Santana “Abraxas”

If you’re going to have one Santana album in your record collection – make sure it’s “Abraxas”. The album that could have been called “The Best Of Santanta” – but fact being it’s actually the bands second album, released in 1970!

Image

You can listen to Santana “Abraxas” if you use Spotify here!
If you wish, listen to the album in a YouTube rip here!
Before you buy it in iTunes or at your favourite record store

Why am I loving this album so much? Because it´s got everything you ever need in a Santana record. You get to hear almost every musical genre you could come up with in a classic rock album; Psychedelic, latin, blues, rock, samba and salsa, even hard rock and jazz.

That’s not all! The “Abraxas” album includes all the Santana songs you know best; “Black Magic Woman / Gypsy Queen” (Originaly by Peter Green´s Fleetwood Mac / Gàbor Szabó), “Oye Com Va” (Originally by Tito Puente), “Samba Pa Ti“, “Hope You’re Feeling Better” and “Singing Winds, Crying Beasts“.

Carlos Santana play guitar like he’s obsessed by Jimi Hendrix’ soul and has just found out he’s Miles Davis unknown little brother. Lead vocalist on this album, Gregg Rolie, is one of the most underrated rock-vocalists ever. The rhythm section with David Brown on bass and Michael Shrieve plays tight as any jazz duo out there, the duo on percussion Jose “Cherpito” Areas and Mike Carabello must have been sweating and working their asses off during the recording. The album was recorded in only 14 days+ and it sounds like they have had the greatest time ever recording the album!

Image

You can play this album in whatever mood you’re in, if you want to cry and feel sad. If you’re feeling it’s time to shake up those salsa hips again, or if you wish you were on a cuban bar, if you want to shake out your frustration to the hard rocking tunes, or if you just want to sit down and chill to the jazz and blues tracks.

I bet after you’ve listened to “Abraxas” you burn your and stomp on Santanas pop-albums like “Supernatural” and it’s follow up albums – even if those were a major comeback for Mr Carlos Santana – that got him into the top of the charts again, made him win a great amount of prices and got him into Guinnies Book of Records for having the longest gap between two #1 albums; 28 years after his last #1 album “Santana”, the third Santana album from 1971. “Abraxas” is the album you come back to – time after time – and it´ll always surprise you!

The first time I heard the album, was a ripped vinyl copy onto a recordable CD, that was so crackly and full of vinyl pops, the sound was so warm. I was just sitting there with my mouth gaping, the whole album through. Actually the album made me go into my basement and find and connect the vinylplayer to my stereo again. Because the rip of the “Abraxas” album I fell in love with vinyl again.

Image

Since then, I’ve bought the album on CD, digital download – and finally finding it on LP again. In my favourite bargain used-records shop in Oslo, Norway – for the small price of a general chocolate bar!

The cover was worn out, the inner-bag of the LP was missing, and the black vinyl LP looked like it had partied since 1970, when the album was originally released.

My vinyl edit of “Abraxas” is full of cracks, pops and has the warm sound, just like my ripped CD-copy, so when I put the needle on the record – I let the world stop – and let myself carry away into Santanas magical and mystical world.
