Blue, David - Nice Baby And The Angel Nice Baby And The Angel
Pop Used - LP SD 5066 Asylum
Mint 1973 White Label Original With Promo Song Hype Sticker And Custom "Outlaw Man" Sticker On Cover. Features Graham Nash, Terry Adams, Dave Mason, Glenn Frey, David Lindley And Others. “Under Nash's Aegis, And With Sidemen Including Guitarist Dave Mason And Multi-Instrumentalist David Lindley, And Additional Background Singers Mason, Glenn Frey Of The Eagles, And Jennifer Warren, Blue Is Brought Into The Southern California Rock Fold Of Country-Inflected Singer/Songwriter Music À La Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young And Jackson Browne. The Changeover Is Apparent Right At The Start With The Rocking Lead Off Track "Outlaw Man." (The Song Was Quickly Taken Up By The Eagles As Appropriate For Their Desperado Concept Album And Released By Them As A Singles Chart Entry). Mason Makes Himself Felt Right Away With An Electric Guitar Solo That Runs Right Through The Song. Anchored By Nash's Keening Tenor, The Background Vocals Considerably Sweeten This And Other Songs. Another Potential Single Is "True To You," Which Is Reminiscent Of The First Edition Hit "But You Know I Love You," While The Catchy "Darlin' Jenny" Makes Lots Of Room For Lindley's Slide Guitar Work. "On Sunday, Any Sunday," Features An Arrangement For Two Acoustic Guitars Augmented By Lindley's Violin And Viola And Terry Adams' Cello. "Yesterday's Lady" And "Troubadour Song" Boast Similar Instrumentation, And The Latter In Particular Is More Characteristic Of The Old Blue With Its Downcast, Introspective Lyrics. Otherwise, Blue's Words Are Somewhat Less Personal And Involved Than Usual, Although His Outlook Is Much The Same As Ever, Expressing The Views Of A Lonely, Sensitive Man Who Encounters Love But Doesn't Retain It. As He Puts It In The Album-Closing "Train To Anaheim," "I'm Still On The Road/I Can't Be Satisfied." Thanks To Nash, Nice Baby And The Angel Dresses Such Sentiments In Highly Accessible Musical Garb.”William Ruhlmann, AMG.... more details
Blue, David - Stories Stories
Pop New - LP SD 5052 Asylum
Sealed 1971 Original With Plastic Hype Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. Features Ry Cooder On Slide Guitar. “Blue's Lyrical Reflections, Expressed In His Matter-Of-Fact Baritone, Touched On Experiences That Ranged From Temporary Romantic Contentment To Suicidal Urges. "It Wasn't Easy, When I Think About It/Living In The House Of Changing Faces," He Sang In The Chorus Of "House Of Changing Faces," "I Still Have The Tracks To Remind Me What Life Was Like, High And Wasted/When I Wanted To Die." That Wasn't The Only Song To Allude To Drug Use. The Most Explicit Was "Come On John" (Previously Recorded By Helen Reddy), A Cautionary Tale For A Friend That Left Little Doubt About Its Subject When It Began, "I've Got A Friend With A Habit/A Habit Of Runnin' Away/He Says He Can't Take It/But He Takes It Every Day." Musically, The Song Had The Feel Of Bob Dylan's "Ballad Of A Thin Man," But For Once Blue Didn't Sound So Much Like Dylan On Stories As He Did Like Leonard Cohen. In Fact, There Was One Song That Might Have Been A Direct Response To Cohen. It's Hard Not To At Least Speculate That "Marianne" May Share A Subject With Cohen's "So Long, Marianne," Particularly Because Of The Musical Similarity And Because Of The Lines "I Knew Her From Another Song Her Older Poet, He'd Wrote Before/We Played In The Morning, Laughing On The Floor/Till He Came A-Knocking On The Lower East Side Door." Although Blue, Too, Seemed Not Have Stayed With Her, He Made A Point Of Countering Cohen's Farewell, Singing In The Chorus, "Do Not Cry, You Have Helped Me, I Will Not Say Goodbye." Whether Or Not This Is The Same Marianne, However, She Is Another Friend Described By Blue In A Series Of Songs About A Community Of Companions Who Love And Lose Each Other, Yet Whatever Their Fates, He Seemed Grateful To Them All.” William Euhlmann, AMG.... more details
