This is such a key part of the appeal for me - the tension between the fear of commitment and the possibility of failure, and the freedom of importance. I'll maybe do a thread later, the ongoing wo' of Dido or something
When I'm left alone for no reason,
Memories begin dancing in my brain,
My sins standing before me in single file,
As if taking revenge one by one,
I was chained by my heart,
the past being its cuffs.
I became a slave to my feelings,
Mistakes begin with those dishonest feelings,
You're one of my mistakes
You're the price to pay for the greatest sins
It's not worth wasting time on you
You're the murderer of the most beautiful sensations.
I don't want you, nor your love, nor yourself,
I don't want the so-called pink color of this life
Listening to this one now... hardly started but some bangers on there already. Enjoying this one which I guess must be Selda.https://soundcloud.com/confccrew%2Flive-on-limbo-radio-7th-april-2020
such a beautiful selection of music! @thirdform what is the song starting around 2:04:00?
Around fifty-seven minutes there is a bit where they are dicking around on... I dunno an oud or something. So good.
Nice one, I know Ocora label yeah, isn't it mainly field recordings and stuff like that?
Either way, back to the next section of this mix, I notice Arif Sag will be coming up, I really like this seven inch I've got by him, both sides killer but especially this one
I read somewhere that he later disowned the electric saz stuff... kinda like Dylan going electric and then changing his mind.
I'm not really a Dylan fan either, but I'm just saying that at one point in the mid sixties, as I understand it, the folk scene was kinda divided with some demanding people stuck to the acoustic routes while more progressive types thought it could only advance by going electric. When Dylan chose to go electric it was seen as a betrayal by a lot of people - I think it probably blew over pretty quickly but it's preserved for posterity cos when he came over to the UK and played I think maybe he did the first half of the concert acoustic and then switched over to electric and at the concert that was recorded someone can be heard shouting "Judas" at him and he shouts back.Yeah he became a folk traditionalist, of sorts.
In some senses I don't blame him, the electric saz stuff got a bit cliche towards the end of the 70s.
In other senses though, I feel it was an aborted development and a lot more could be done.
Can't say how much the Bob Dillon parallel holds as i never got into him, personally.
