ROBB JOHNSON: Bring Down The Moon ** Stijn Vranken: exclusief gesprek en exclusieve voorleessessie uit “Maak plaats van mij”

Johnson zingt over verzet en uitbuiting, maar moed, doorzettingsvermogen en hoop op beterschap markeren evengoed zijn boodschap. Om het met het grafschrift van Herbert Marcuse te zeggen: Weiter machen!
De cd begint en eindigt met nummers die hoop uitstralen. Het titel- én openingslied “Bring Down the Moon” suggereert om de maan uit de hemel te plukken en ze in onze woonkamer te plaatsen. De maan staat hier natuurlijk symbool voor dromerij en liefde – bij verliefde koppels hoort maneschijn… En zie, daar verschijnen de magiërs, de reizigers, de reuzen, windmolens en Spaanse kastelen zelfs, een overduidelijke verwijzing naar Don Quixote, alweer een man met “Weiter machen” als devies. De plaat eindigt met “Call Me Tonight” en de filosofische bedenking “Sometimes the universe delivers”. Soms komt universum komt zijn belofte na, dit wil zeggen: er is een zin. Nu en dan valt alles netjes in de plooi, ja, zelfs de zeemzoete happy ends van de tv-film zijn acceptabel. Soms moet je de dingen gewoon op hun beloop laten, de zingeving volgt wel.  Met de nadruk op soms, want de dingen op hun beloop laten, dat is niet bepaalde de forte van Johnson en daar handelt de rest van de cd dus net niet over!

SUPER WAGNER (PAS) LA HAUT

(G. Garrigues)

POUR QU’ON RESTE SAGE

ON VEUT NOUS FAIRE CROIRE
QU’AU DESSUS DES NUAGES
IL Y A L’ESPOIR
OUBLIONS CETTE COMEDIE
ON TROUVE ICI NOTRE PARADIS
N’ATTENDONS PAS D’ETRE EN HAUT
EN HAUT, EN HAUT, EN HAUT

IL FAUT APPRECIER
TOUS LES BONS MOMENTS
ET RECOMMENCER
QUE CA DURE LONGTEMPS
NE PAS CROIRE CETTE COMEDIE
ON TROUVE ICI NOTRE PARADIS
N’ATTENDONS PAS D’ETRE EN HAUT
EN HAUT, EN HAUT, EN HAUT

POURQUOI FAIRE CONFIANCE
ENVERS L’INVISIBLE
METTONS LA JOUISSANCE
AU CŒUR DE LA CIBLE

IDEM POUR L’ENFER
DONT NOUS SOMMES MENACES
FAUT PAS SE LAISSER FAIRE
PAR TOUS CES CURES
AGISSONS SUIVANT NOS ENVIES
ON TROUVE ICI NOTRE PARADIS
SANS ALLER VOIR LA HAUTLA HAUT, LA HAUT, LA HAUT

PAT BOYACK with Ruthie Foster, Marcia Ball, W.C. Clark, Sweetpea Atkinson & Larry Fulcher: VOICES FROM THE STREET. Radio 68 plays the entire album, including the hidden track!

Pat Boyack - Voices From The Street - Hand

A personal message from Paul Boyack to Radio 68:
“Free Speech is what many of us Americans and French see as a human right. Free Speech has given those who enjoy it opportunities, be it through political means or for the sake of artistic exploration. It is a WONDERFUL thing and for those of us raised around freedom it’s a common element in our daily lives. We cherish it, we will die for it. We do this not for selfish reasons but for the betterment of the human race and for future generations. Time will show the greatest advancement of human development has come since the fight for Free Speech. History will also show that the lack of that right pulls human development back. My heart goes out to those in France in what has recently happened. I have visited France many times and have always left with a feeling of betterment. The people are so giving with open minds and hearts. Thank you Free Speech.” – Pat Boyack http://www.patboyack.com

A bout the album Voices From the Street:
“Guitarist/songwriter Pat Boyack’s past recordings, under his own name, as a guest on W.C. Clark’s albums and as a member of the Marcia Ball Band, were merely an impressive prelude to the socially-conscious soul sessions which produced “Voices from the Street”. With Boyack’s clean, clear and creative guitar work fronting a fine and funky all-star band “Voices From the Street” utilizes sensational singing to deliver a solid assortment of soulful message music.
Marcia Ball, with a full horn section behind her, sings two songs, including the uptempo gem “Listen to Me”. W.C. Clark is heard on Boyack’s deep soul ballad “First Comes the Grievin’ “, as well as on the ’70s message tune “The Power Is Gone”. Ruthie Foster is featured on three tracks, including the surprisingly upbeat “Misery” (co-written by Boyack). Ruthie, like Marcia, had such a good time at the sessions that she stuck around to do the female backing vocals.
Honorary Austinite Sweetpea Atkinson, of Lyle Lovett, Bonnie Raitt, Was/Not Was and Boneshakers fame, is featured on three fervent funk workouts. The album’s rousing finale finds all the vocalists soulfully testifying on the populist anthem “Time” (Has Come Today) with each singer taking a verse of the Chambers Brothers psychedelic protest classic.

Peace Will Come (According To Plan) Melanie Safka, (copyrighted)

For sometimes when we have reached the end
With the velvet hill in the small of my backs
And our hands are clutching the sand
Will our blood become a part of the river
All of the rivers are givers to the ocean
According to plan, according to man
There’s a chance peace will come in your life please buy one.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life please buy one
For sometime when we have reached the end
With the velvet hill in the small of my backs
And our hands are clutching the sand.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life please buy one
