Today is also the Boogie Woogie Flu's birthday and it's nearly dead.
I am here tonight to help this long neglected enterprise limp into another year. Our annual Hanukkah extravaganza died when the lights unexpectedly went out after the second night.
It was not a miracle or a lack thereof - it just happened. Tonight, I'll attempt to resuscitate and breathe some life back into this dying corpse by offering seven nuggets of pure gold recorded by the King at Stax Studios in his hometown of Memphis. Hope you dig it. Posted by Ted Barron at PM 23 comments.
Labels: elvisElvis Presleystax. Once you learn all East Of Eden - Boogie Woogie Flu words, there's rarely any need to listen again -- and that's assuming there was any reason to listen in the first place. But Tom Lehrer remains the great exception. He wasn't just a humorist — he was a satiristand a scathingly effective one. And he wasn't just a musician — he taught musical theater on the university level, where he also taught political science and, to greater acclaim, mathematics.
He is almost certainly the only person with this background to become the subject of a Rhino box set.
Or to put it another way, Tom Lehrer was a pretty unusual cat. Lehrer was born in Manhattan in He took piano lessons as a child and later, while in his Abandon Hope - Ajax Lepinski - Fuck Guns & Roses, What About The Nihilistics?, began writing satirical songs as a hobby, some of which he ended up performing in nightclubs.
His shows were enthusiastically received, so in he booked some studio time and recorded a 10" album, Songs by Tom Lehrerfeaturing such titles as "Be Prepared" which advised Boy Scouts on the best ways to smoke a joint while the Scoutmaster wasn't looking"I Wanna Go Back to Dixie" an ode to lynching, poll taxes, and the like and "The Old Dope Peddler" self-explanatory. Initially issued in a pressing of copies on the artist's own Lehrer Records, it marked the beginning of Lehrer's reluctant engagement with the music biz.
The LP hit No. It was one of maybe three non-classical LPs in the house. It was filled with topical songs and one-liners, most of which I was too young to understand, but East Of Eden - Boogie Woogie Flu wasn't too young to recognize intelligence, rhythm, or timing, all of East Of Eden - Boogie Woogie Flu Lehrer clearly had.
Even without fully comprehending all of his material, I was hooked. Despite the LP's success, it marked the end of Lehrer's recording career. He dabbled in industrial musicals and children's music for a bit, at one point writing songs for the PBS show The Electric Companybut for the most part he returned to academia, citing a distaste for touring and a sense of tedium from playing the same songs over and over although one suspects that the growing s counterculture had eclipsed his once-radical positions.
His songs have been repackaged and reissued many times over the years, and Rhino gave him the box set treatment in — a testament to the lasting impact of his brief career. Lehrer was raised Jewish, and you can definitely hear hints of Yiddish theater in his vocals. You can also sense, or at least imagine, the underlying plight of the Jewish nerd — I mean, a satirical musician who's also a mathematician seems bound to be a bit of a misfit in both fields, right?
But Lehrer rarely addressed Judaism in his material. One exception is the fairly pedestrian " I'm Spending Hanukkah in Santa Monica," which is little more than a series of rhymes.
A better example comes in one of his best songs, "National Brotherhood Week," the East Of Eden - Boogie Woogie Flu verse of which goes like so: Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics, And the Catholics hate the Protestants, And the Hindus hate the Muslims, And everybody hates the Jews!
Lehrer sings this progression not with self-pity, and certainly not with self-loathing, but with sardonic glee. It's the kind of line, and the kind of delivery, that only a Jew could pull off.
Lehrer, now 85, is still living, but he no longer performs and rarely gives interviews. Happy Hanukkah, Tom. Posted by Ted Barron at PM 4 comments. I remember my father singing "The Motorcycle Song," maybe, as a lullaby. I might be making that up. Perhaps East Of Eden - Boogie Woogie Flu was just on some family trip.
I have vague sleepy recollections of seeing Guthrie with Seeger at Carnegie Hall at one or several? Their double-live East Of Eden - Boogie Woogie Flu Together in Concert likewise provides my personal platonic Proustian memory: the particular smell of LP cover cardboard trapping the thin plastic sleeves Warner Brothers used during the early '80s. But I didn't come to tell you about snorting the musty insides of record jackets or great cover songs.
I came to tell you about "Alice's Restaurant. And somehow, miraculously, it has survived at least 10 laptops and countless panicked harddrive failures and, Muddy Water - Johnny Rivers - The Best Of Johnny Rivers decade-and-a-half later, still exists on my harddrive: a profoundly lo-fi kbps rip of the song, untagged with an album or a track number, and with a sound as distinct to my ears as the familiar crackle of a record.
My "Alice. When I listened in college, Sharon - Jackie Edwards - Do It Sweet realized that I pretty much knew all of "Alice," word for word, beat for beat, with full orchestration and proverbial five-part harmony, in some deep down part of me. Woody was there. Arlo was ushered into manhood with songs, guitar-pickin', square dancing, harmonica playing, and ritual blessings in what was the first and probably the only Hootenanny Bar Mitzvah in history.
Maybe I was responsible. But as the product of a secular hippie upbringing, it was hundreds thousands? Sometimes, their ingestion was self-guided and systematic, other times circumstantial and a product of the traditions of the world around me. Alice and the rest-terr-awwnt undoubtedly fell mostly under the latter.
Probably, I'm not alone. Guthrie has called "Alice" an "anti-stupidity" song, and it's hard to miss that didactic aspect of the folk-tale. But--as I'd started to observe around college-time--it was also so plainly and obviously a really tight, excellent piece of writing that transmitted content, personality, style and pure lulz. Every single word was jiggled into its proper rhythmic place.
Like Hunter S. The first known recording of the song, from early at Buckethead - Binge Clips 5 (VHS) Folk City, has a year old Arlo running down a ten-minute, molasses slow version that's predominantly an extended riff on how the word of "Alice's Restaurant" might spread from MacDougal and Bleecker Streets to Greenwich Village to the west side, downtown and uptown, and beyond.
There are a few familiar phrasings and Guthrie's got a Coney Island cowboy drawl that sounds awfully familiar, but there's not much to it. The song is far faster and jumpier than what Guthrie would record a East Of Eden - Boogie Woogie Flu later, its creator clearly giddy with his new creation, which is almost totally Blijf Je Bij Mij - Various - Ik Hou Van Jou - De 44 Mooiste Vlaamse Liedjes. It's so fast that the rhythms and phrasings of Guthrie's word torrents reveal themselves and one can easily imagine a pepped-up Arlo dinging the song out on a typewriter with the guitar pattern running on an endless, obsessive loop in his head.
It's almost entirely there, the pauses and self-interruptions, as nuanced as a screenplay by Joel and Ethan Coen. But it's not all there either. Some punchlines don't quite work, some line-breaks need to be elongated. The real measure of the song's strength is exactly how well Guthrie remembers it all. It might sound like a ramble, but "Alice" is a song with verses and lyrics that run in nearly exact clockwork precision atop its changes.
