I believe the thread is still officially on Memories so here goes my take. This is John Mayall’s life story, his autobiography from his childhood, three-year stint in the Army (sent to Korea), his return to civilian life and then his decision to dedicate his life to blues music. And it is well thought out and performed. Memories: rustic, country-folk. made me think of Ron Wood/Ronnie Lane’s Mahoney s Last Stand or, as I said earlier, Free’s ‘Bodie.’ Starts things off at age 11 and his parent’s divorce. Wish I Knew A Woman: A straightforward blues with harp and slide. Fun. The City: yet another country blues (Korner is probably having a heart attack). A lyrical snapshot of Mayall as a schoolboy. In the ‘like’ column. Home In A Tree: I think I’ll send this song to a friend of mine who lives much of the year in a tree house. Country blues. Separate Ways: Apple Music lyrics and song doesn’t match up. Will have to figure this one out later. The Fighting Line: This took a second listen before catching my attention. Describes his three year tenure in the Army nd Korea. “I’m the typewriter king, I’d make a damn good clerk.” Friends being killed, I’m sure he was glad to get back alive. Grandad: beautiful and sweet. Back From Korea: An awkward song, I think. A continuation of his life story so it is interesting in that sense. Nobody cares: Dialed down, sounds despondent (as the title suggests). Some nice piano. “Got my blues...something that's my own.” Play The Harp: That Bo Diddley thunga-thunga rhythm. Mayall declares what he wants to do with his life. overall, very nicely executed. I had never heard this album before so am quite pleased by this discovery. It’s a very solid album and I’ve tentatively marked five tracks for my playlist: Memories ; Wish I Knew A Woman; The Fighting Line; Grandad; and Play The Harp to my playlist.
