refocusing, continuing to input lyrics into the plethora of Centro-matic / South San Gabriel tunes i just got.
immediately gravitated to the end song, All Night Long. hauntingly familiar. because it’s Lionel Ritchie dear lord. wow.
here’s the cut in the album version:
“All Night Long” from the split EP Eyas by Centro-matic / South San Gabriel
“All Night Long” LIVE from the split EP Eyas by Centro-matic / South San Gabriel
and a live version — check out the tux!
“All Night Long” LIVE by My Morning Jacket
My Morning Jacket’s take — they are so fun, i don’t know why i’m always surprised how fun and truly great they are live….
“All Night Long” by Lionel Ritchie (the original)
and almost forgot to link to the original
very cool to note in the Centro-matic description linked to above that the PDF that is included in the purchase of this online only record includes artwork by Julie Miller. it reminds me of Blue Pony a ton, one of my favorite Julie Miller records.
here’s the artwork:
and one of my favorites off the record (the visuals are awful but it was the only video i could find).
Kiss On The Lips from Blue Pony by Julie Miller
When the lie comes down like a kiss on the lips
It’s a fragile wire the memory trips
The taste is sweet, but the kiss is unkind
There’s a crawlspace in my head that I find
i wonder how Julie is doing. i don’t think she’s performing anymore — very worrisome. i saw Buddy & Julie Miller play at the Bottom Line (R.I.P.) down near NYU at least three times — three or more shows (they seemed to tour often then) during a time when it seemed like every record that was released was magical. a truly special time of great live shows and music that changed my life. hope Julie is doing okay.
