Dancing Bob =-and his-= Imaginary Cover Band
... the songs of people that are not Bob Ludwig
Covers ... gotta love 'em ... people don't know who you are unless
you play music they've heard before ... sometimes this means
playing songs other people have written, and sometimes it means
playing something that they've only heard echoing in their souls.
What you can hear (from here, ya hear?) is an odd mix of both.
So ... covers ... not for sale, but for the fun of it:
- Done Laid Around
Written by Paul Clayton, Larry Ehrlick, David Lazar, & Tom Six ... and it's a fun piece.
- Done Laid Around (squawk version)
For a complete break with reality
... this piece started out as "Done Laid
Around" ... sung as input while the mics were being
adjusted. A couple verses
went well ... but then ... it ... changed ... Squawk!
- Freight Train
Elizabeth Cotton's famous song.
Everyone has to sing this ... and do it their own way.
- Nobody Knows You
Like Summertime, everyone has to sing their own version of this.
- Sixteen Tons
Not at all like the Ernie Ford version.
- St. James Infirmy
Death ain't that bad, and
... let's say you have to do the Louisianna funeral thing ... you need
- You Can't Do That (done at home)
A Beatle's piece ... morphed to a coffee-house jazz/blues thing.
- Dear Prudence
I've been playing this almost since I first heard it ...
probably my favorite of their tunes I play.
- Here Comes The Sun
"And I say ... it's all right ... ".
- Things We Said Today
"You say you will love me ... ".
- You Can't Do That (done at Happy Cat Studio)
Another version ... still morphed.
Stuck in my mind:
- It's Alright, Ma
A Bob Dylan song ... every word still ringing true.
- The Sisters of Mercy
Yep ... they really exist.
- Catch The Wind
I guess I was in a Donovan mood.
- Momas, Don't Let Your Babies
Willie sang it right and true ... so do I.
- Rainbow Connection
I sing the blues ... and, here, I sing the greens.
- Trouble Every Day
Serious, in a whole 'nother way ... the 1st song I ever performed in public.
- When I Was In Love
Bill Nash's lovely song ...
- You Can Close Your Eyes
James Taylor wrote this lovely piece ... my heart says every word is true.
- House of the Rising Sun
- Blue Christmas
- Santa Claus is Coming
