Hidden Or Hard To Hear Stuff On Albums

Recommended Posts

'Your Move' from The Yes Album uses the chorus "All we are saying is give peace a chance" from the John Lennon Plastic Ono Band song, it's buried down deep in the mix.

 

Here's what Wikipedia reads,

The first part of the song, "Your Move", alludes to the game of chess as a metaphor for male–female relationships.[4] Examples include the phrases "move me onto any black square", "make the white queen run so fast", and "the goal is for us all to capture only one".

A reference to John Lennon's work is in the lyric "send that instant karma to me", with "Instant Karma!" being a single released by Lennon in 1970. Also, the sentence "All we are saying is give peace a chance" is heard in the organ part before switching to "All Good People", referencing another Lennon song, "Give Peace a Chance". More generally, Anderson has stated that the line "'cause it's time, it's time in time with your time" was an attempt to say that he would "do anything that is required of me to reach God" and that he wants the listener to feel "in tune and in time with God."[6] Just before the three-minute mark of the song, at the final part of "Your Move", the chorus of Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance" can be heard in the background

The Allmans generally recorded live in a warehouse.  Lots of stuff in headphones on their records.  Dickey and Duane breathing on Little Martha, and their feet on the floor.  The late records, 90's I guess, lots of sounds of chairs moving and people talking in the background.

Used to be a throat clearing in the great Thorn Tree In The Garden on the Layla record, I think modern versions have cleaned it out.  They shoulda taken out Duane's entire track on the back end of Layla.

This one falls under 'hard to listen to'.  I wouldn't exactly say the guitar is out of tune - but it seems like they went with "close enough for rock & roll".

Move on back two squares. I've heard the Give Peace A Chance in that song for decades. Love Yes. Till Drama.

All these peace-types: did they ever elaborate on how this elusive world peace was to be achieved?

John and Yoko sat in a bed. But not much changed. I preferred Yoko when she was in the bag.

we can have a shot at peace if people want it and make an effort, trying is better than not. Yes they elaborated, stand up for it even in the face of ridicule (which john and yoko got in spades). I wonder who among us did more than they?   Peace types ? Are you not a peace type ?????

more nasty towards people who try to make the world better while you spew intolerance and disdain.    I thank Yoko for her efforts.

I thought I read years ago that it was Clapton playing that strangled-cat sounding slide at the end of Layla.

yea, I've heard that as well.  But you have to be using cans to hear it.  Open air listening it just gets lost.

I listen to quite a bit of solo stuff from acoustic guys (Tommy E.  Alex DeGrassi, Ed Gerhard).    It's just these guys, a guitar in a recording room playing in front of a mic.  You can clearly hear the breathing all the time.  Even clothes rustling now and then too.  Adds just a bit more "human" effect to the track IMHO.

No cats were harmed in the recording of that track!  \:D/

Listening to remastered Layla right now.  Definitely a few poor musical choices there on the slide part. 

Speaking of Yoko and stuff that's hard to hear .... "Heeeeeeeey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?" In the key of Yoko.

Yoko sang in the rarely used key of strangled cat. If you need proof try and I mean try to get through all of side 2 of Live Peace In Toronto. You'll be glad you didn't.

He made a joke. The disdain is solely in your reply.

He doesn't have the sense of humor bone. Its connected to the funny bone. That is Yoko in the bag. That is not a joke, but her singing was. I don't have an issue with Yoko and know she did not break up The Beatles, they did that on their own, but if you think she makes music...well you got some strange taste.

 I served in the military so I'm sure JVC considers me a war monger. I was even in one, didn't want to be, but I took an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. I got to go to Thailand twice because of it. Best and most funnest place on Earth.

He did the slide chord stuff, hard to find but it is there.  He did the acoustic.  Gordon is the piano, Whitlock put some acoustic on it and doubled some piano parts.  Radle did, well, he did Radle.  A picture of the board shows Duane on 2 faders, I would assume they let him crap all over that thing twice.
