A Real Weird One!

Here's another one of those songs that you could psychoanalyze and write a 12-page article about.

The Byrds: "Chestnut Mare"

A protest song that was ahead of its time......

Bob Lind was known mainly as an old-fashioned type pop singer, because his only hit record was this song which sounds like something from the Tin Pan Alley genre of the 1930's and 40's, e.g. Frank Sinatra and so on.

Bob Lind: "Elusive Butterfly"
Bob Lind - Elusive Butterfly - #5 1966 - HD Stereo! - YouTube

But he also wrote what was, for 1966, a VERY strong protest song -- the kind of song that, in those days, could really get you in trouble. His own recording of it is an unreleased demo.

Then the Turtles released it -- but only on an album, and with some of the words changed to make it a little LESS strong. They couldn't persuade their record label to issue it as a single, or to let them use all of Lind's words.

Here's Lind's original demo, with all its scathing criticism of the "establishment".

Bob Lind: "Down in Suburbia"

After the Beatles with "Hey Jude" popularized the idea of a record that sounds like two separate songs -- a ballad followed by a rock rave-up -- Derek and the Dominoes further developed that format in this record, which sounds like a rock rave-up followed by a child taking piano lessons!

A foxtrot is a dance......isn't it?

If you heard there was a song called "2-4-2 Fox Trot" what would you expect it to sound like?

Actually, I think "Foxtrot" is also one of the standard "code words" used by the Army and by planes and boats, etc.

The Byrds: "2–4–2 Fox Trot"

The Black Roots of Rock -- 75 Years Ago?

Since my teen years (the 1960's) I've read countless histories of rock music. They usually recognize the black music of the early-to-mid 1950's ("Rhythm & Blues" or "R&B") as the principal ancestor of rock'n'roll, but they rarely discuss anything earlier than the 1950's. Of course, they know that rock has also included elements from Tin Pan Alley pop music, from country and hillbilly music, from traditional blues, and from jazz -- all of which are much older. But I'm now referring only to their discussion of the characteristically black singing styles that progressed from slow ballads (e.g. The Five Satins "In the Still of the Night") to fast and exciting rave-ups (e.g. The Isley Brothers "Shout"), thereby leading up to rock'n'roll.

Actually, I believe the earliest roots of rock go back a little further than that. Here's an example of a hit from 1942 that would only have been called "pop music" at the time, but which impresses me as a possible ancestor of R&B, and therefore of rock as well.
