  Annie's First Rain & Good to be With You on Youtube audio
Posted by: Cindy M - 05-13-2019, 09:32 PM - Forum: mjblue.com & YouTube Updates - No Replies

Finally, the last two songs from the Amy & Paul tape.

Annie's First Rain by MJ

Good to Be with You by Eric Andersen
https://youtu.be/CcrE78PaQ5A

He repeats the lyrics after each song which evidently was for Amy's and Paul's benefit.

Hi Cindy,
Do you have any idea how many songs MJ wrote, recorded or not?
Do you know if anyone else performed any songs he wrote?
He said, I think in an interview, that songwriting was hard work. Makes me wonder if he typically wrote the music and the co-writer did the lyrics. Any idea?
As you can see, I have a lot of time on my hands, thus these burning questions!

Hi Cindy,
Do you have Michael's version of the above song in your treasure chest of tapes??? I've only heard him sing one line of the song and it's beautiful! If you have it, could you put on YouTube? I'd love to hear the rest of it!
Thank you!

Dale Dixon has created tablature for Bristlecone Pine and I'm a month late getting it up. Thanks for the reminder, Dale.

  Love City YouTube song
Posted by: Cindy M - 04-29-2019, 12:50 PM - Forum: mjblue.com & YouTube Updates - No Replies

Another Amy & Paul tape song

Love City (Postcards to Duluth)
I learned I had the wrong title to this song so the youtube video will say Postcards to Duluth. This is written by Noel Paul Stookey and was on Peter, Paul & Mary's 1968 Late Again album. As he frequently did, Michael left out a couple verses and change lines around. I wish he had performed it as it's a beautiful cover.

Also, new photo in the video. Found it in my stash. Taken at the Earl of Old Town on 1/18/73. I don't know if I bought this off eBay or if MJ gave it to me. He wore that shirt in a few publicity photos.

  I Shall Be Released YouTube song
Posted by: Cindy M - 04-28-2019, 08:57 PM - Forum: mjblue.com & YouTube Updates - No Replies

Paul and Amy tape continued.

I Shall Be Released, only a couple verses. Pretty sure he learned it off Peter, Paul & Mary's "Late Again" album, released in August 1968, further narrowing down the date of this tape to late '68 or after. Coming up, another song from this album, same tape.

This is the only Bob Dylan song I'm aware of that he sort of covered.

Another song from the Paul and Amy tape.

"If Wishes were Horses"

The last recording of this song I have is from 1984. So 1968 to 1984...

Songwriter: Mike Settle. Kenny Rogers & 1st Edition recorded it.

Received in the mail today! Rooty Toot Toot! As I posted on Facebook:
Original tape of Rooty Toot Toot - several versions. Unfortunately it's 16 track format which my machine won't play and even the conversion service I've dealt with in the past isn't sure they can either. Comments? Advice?

  Sticky Summer Weather - youtube song
Posted by: Cindy M - 04-22-2019, 08:34 PM - Forum: mjblue.com & YouTube Updates - No Replies

This was the last song on the tape (but not the last I'll add to YouTube) and it got cut off. Sticky Summer Weather written by John Denver. I'm rethinking the date of this tape. Crow said it was probably recorded right after he got back from Spain but it would be more logical that it was recorded when MJ was in Denver, Boise & Johnson or after. Denver didn't record this song until 1970 so MJ would have had to learn it from him before that.
