The song that was the best ever, but didn't get recorded, is going to be recorded and posted.   Sound In, this time, is themed around the book "The Old Man and the Sea" and its timeless idea applied to music or song or just the newest sound that "got away" from getting recorded.  It's the song that should have gone platinum but slipped through our fingers and was lost like the great fish in "The old man and the sea." By Hemingway.   "There are many good fishermen and some great ones. But there is only you." – Earnest Hemingway

    Bill Newbold – The Bike Ride

    IDK about this theme it is like mmmm right on topic (it seems),..  I, being an old man, as well, can put out any song, almost and say — as everyone is — that it is on topic – being the one that got away…  Next time I will make the topic much more difficult like only using the diminished chords in Lydian modes where Bb is part of the process and the base key note is in motion as being incremented – by pi minus 3 upward with every quarter note beat.  Of course I would water this down some — somehow and such by the time we would have me back for hosting.

    Bill Newbold – Time X Is Here

    This next song was as well made earlier this week about the 18th of the month.  I should be getting to new music today and posting it, once it is uploaded. 

    edit- and currently what is happening =below=

    I am starting a new project with cartoon characters and to be made into a book.  Now IDK the person I am working with has me jumping through the hoop of the fact that it is a real story put into book cartoon form for kids.  I showed him that this is the type of cartoons I have made — he said that is nice we just need to be conservative and realistic as it is for children.  So, Can I make this or should I not do it at all…  I am meeting with this person tomorrow to see what can be done and what I need to do.

    Kavin. – Crozby Stills Who Cares and Young

    The acoustic part has been on my phone for months, recorded as an idea that never came to fruition. The 12 string is in "Croz" tuning, and David Crosby is the old man, in this sense, so on theme in both ways. Don't get me wrong, I love CSNY together and individually, but I saw this posted on facebook by a friend so decided to use it for the title.

      Thanks for including me Steve.  This is neat and meant to comment on FB.  Trying to remember when I did my part.  Anyhow I too have been absent but popping in this evening to say hey.  Have been side tracked with life, WONM and back on the bike more last couple weekends.

    Chris Vaisvil – Cover of Anyway (from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway)

     

    One of my favorite songs from 1975's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway – which I pretty much destroy. Peter Gabriel would qualify as an old man now… as I do as well.

    12 string guitar, 6 string bass, lead and backing vocals

    All the pumping’s nearly over for my sweet heart.
    This is the one for me,
    Time to meet the chef,
    Oh boy! The running man is out of death.
    I feel cold and old,
    its getting hard to catch my breath.
    Its back to ash,
    “now, you’ve had your flash boy”
    The rocks in time,
    compress your blood to oil,
    your flesh to coal,
    enrich the soil,
    not everybody’s goal.

    Anyway, they say she comes on a pale horse,
    But I’m sure I hear a train.
    Oh boy! I don’t even feel no pain
    I guess I must be driving myself insane.
    Damn it all!
    Does earth plug a hole in heaven,
    Or heaven plug a hole in earth –
    “how wonderful to be so profound,
    When everything you are is dying underground.”

    I feel the pull on the rope,
    let me off at the rainbow.
    I could have been exploded in space
    Different orbits for my bones
    Not me, just quietly buried in stones,
    Keep the deadline open with my maker!
    See me stretch; for God’s elastic acre
    The door bell rings and it’s
    “Good morning Rael
    So sorry you had to wait.
    It won’t be long, yeah!
    She’s very rarely late.”

    James Bailey – Yak Song

    A silly little song that came to me as I was cycling to meet some friends at a pub last night, and expanded a bit just now. Played on a not-very-well bowl-back mandolin with only the G and D strings, no nut (apart from the one playing it) and an improvised bridge made from a tooth-flossing implement.

    For the curious, here are the words:

    Can a big yak,

    In a little kayak,

    Paddle right down to the sea?

    And when he gets there,

    Can he paddle right back?

    Well, I guess we'll have to see.

    And can Mrs. Yak kayak

    Right down there with him too?

    Or will her and all the babies

    Need a really big canoe?

    Well the answers to these questions,

    I guess we'll never know,

    'Cause yaks live in the mountains,

    In the ice and in the snow.

    And that's all there is to it!

    James Bailey – The Ballad of Jimmy Juicehead

    Ok, going to try sneaking one in under the wire. Wrote this one over thirty years ago. Did a recording sometime after that but it's buried in a box somewhere. This is a rather rough rendition, but am hoping it will do. Too many words to add them here, but they sound pretty clear. Jimmy Juicehead was a nickname with which a friend had dubbed me around that time.
