Michael Johnson - The Glory

https://youtu.be/TqHc9I9FxjY

Michael Johnson - The Glory c. 1973
Songwriter: Crow (Amy) Johnson

Demo for 2nd album (For All You Mad Musicians)
This was a tape recorded for drummer Gary Gauger with MJ's commentary before and after the song. When I spoke with Gary last year, he said he never heard it. MJ gave this to me back in the 70's. Contains a lot of crickets and a motorcycle. Recorded "On top of this mountain just above Salt Lake City."

Song 2 of 6. Guessing on year.

  Gustavus Concert Tapes
Posted by: Cindy M - 07-05-2019, 12:17 PM - Forum: MJ Forum - Replies (4)

The Gustavus recording engineer will be sending me all his DAT tapes of the concerts he recorded. Previoussly he had given me mix CDs or the concerts with only the songs. 

He says "All The recordings I have are DATs. My DAT player is failing but the last time I played the tapes they were deteriorating so good to have someone work on them and preserve those wonderful concert performances."

Unfortunately I gave back Michael's DAT machine to the family and used units are pricey on eBay. I couldn't find any for rent ion the Twin Cities. 

The tapes should be baked first if they're deteriorating. The place I go to for baking and conversion, TwoSquares, they don't charge for the baking if you pay for any conversion. Unfortunately conversion is $20 a tape. I don't know how many tapes I'll be getting and if it's a large amount if TwoSquares will give me any price break. In any case, I may have to ask for donations as I'm without funds.

When I get the tapes, I will add another posting. Just wanted to let you know, we might have some great concerts to listen to soon!

Song 2 from early demo. In Your Eyes was added a couple weeks ago, See You Soon will be coming later today. 

Happy 4th - I couldn't think of any suitable songs MJ sang. Drop the Big One?

Written by Carl Franzen
Slightly different lyrics and melody than the recorded version.

https://youtu.be/iPXAHewty4c

Back in 1958, we drove an old V-8
And when it turned a hundred thou
We pushed it a mile

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

Heading south from Canada
On a graveled road a mile from Montana
Then my daddy read the sign
That took us in the wrong direction

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

I asked my daddy where are we going
He just said we're following our nose
So I looked out the window
And dreamed I was a cowboy

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
La La...

I met a girl in a truck cafe
I fell in love almost right away
But the Mercury was ready to go
And I had to leave her

Go home, said the man in the moon, go home
Go home, said the man in the moon, go home
Because it's getting sorta late, and I'll soon put out my light
So go home, said the man in the moon, go home

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
La la...
We were just a-moving on the road

Cindy, while trying to view the various versions of "The Honey Wind Blows", marvelous tune, I noticed the link to 'Soundcheck Red Wing, MN..." sent me to the 'Soundcheck Hopkins Center..." youtube site. Is it the same for you there or is it just my machine?
