Produced by Bob Johnston - 1969
Recorded by David Diller, Tom May, Neil Wilburn at Columbia Studios,
Nashville, Hollywood

Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde is the seventh album by The Byrds. But these were different Byrds: only Roger McGuinn was left from the original five members. They fell from the sky, changed from space suits to cowboy outfits and played great music. As long as McGuinn was in charge, it was still The Byrds.

The fourth studio album by Simon & Garfunkel follows a bookends concept, exploring a life journey from childhood to old age. Side one marks successive stages in life, the theme serving as literal bookends to the life cycle. Side two largely consists of unused material for The Graduate soundtrack. Bookends was considered a breakthrough for the the duo, placing them on the same artistic level as The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.

4.   Two: Ice (Mary-Ellen Anderson)
Loose Marbles (in a Big Wooden Box): Two Productions TWO1

Sandy Stubbert: guitar, bg vocals
Mary-Ellen Anderson: guitar,  lead vocal

5.   Myrna Lorrie: Life’s Changing Scene (Grashey / Lorrie)
Quality Records - 1432
Cloud Bay ON
Myrna Lorrie: vocals
Produced by Don Grashey 1955

Myrna Lorraine Petrunka b. August 6, 1940, Cloud Bay, Ontario

She is known as the First Lady of Canadian Country Music.
Began singing on Thunder Bay radio age 11 and by 14 had her own radio show called Harmony Trails.
At age 14 she wrote and recorded the song "Are You Mine" with Buddy DeVal, which was released on Abbott Records and reached number 6 on the Billboard Chart.
Lorrie was awarded two Juno Awards for best female country singer, in 1970 and 1971.

6.   Ry Cooder: Viola Lee Blues (Noah Lewis)
Crossroads Motion Picture Soundtrack: Warner Brothers 92 53991
Los Angeles CA
Ry Cooder: vocal, mandolin
Jim Keltner: drums
Jorge Calderon: bass
Jim Dickinson: piano, guitar
George Bohannon: baritone horn
Walt Sereth: soprano sax
Produced by Ry Cooder 1986
Recorded at Ocean Way Studios, Los Angeles by Mark Ettel
Second engineers: Tony Chiappa & Dave Ahlert
Mixed at Ocean Way and Record One by Judy Last
Mastered by Bernie Grundman

Originally recorded by Cannons Jug Stompers, the song was written by Cannon’s longtime partner, harmonica playing Noah Lewis. Apparently, Lewis was an amazing blues harp player who inspired Rice Miller who went by the name of Sonny Boy Williamson (II). He was able to play two harps at once, even through his nose.

The music for the Crossroads film is amazing. Cooder was in charge selecting the music, the musicians and the way in which they were recorded. Probably due to the fact that Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid) played the co-lead role (with a very convincing Joe Seneca), the film didn’t do that great. According to Cooder: “the film went down the tubes.” But the music….

Unfortunately, the Steve Vai segment where he and Macchio (whose parts were mostly played by Cooder off camera) cut heads in a duel was left off the album. That was the best part. But what was on the album was amazing, including Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee’s last recording together. The use of bluesman Frank Frost was brilliantly shot at a real roadhouse in Mississippi.

He was a huge celebrity about town, rivaling Eddie Shack. He’d be seen about town with his hair died blond and tucked into a French bun at the back while driving a Cadillac convertible down Yonge St.

In a tour of the US in 1967, the Blues Magoos were the opening act, followed by The Who and the headliners, Herman's Hermits. As good as they were, their albums were not successful sales-wise and by 1968, after releasing three albums, the band split up.

They actually got to perform this song, which was considered to be a drug song, on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour TV Show.

3.   Pink Floyd: Apples and Oranges (Syd Barrett)

Cambridge / London UK
Syd Barrett – guitar, lead vocal
Rick Wright – keys
Roger Waters – bass
Nick Mason – drums
Produced by Norman Smith - 1967
Recorded at Abby Road Studio, London
Remastered at EMI 2007

The follow up third single by PF which bombed. After the success of Arnold Layne and See Emily Play things started going pretty weird with Syd Barrett. Apples and Oranges is a fantastic song that should have out did the other two singles. The desire to have more hits put more pressure on Syd to write something new; the fact that they would have to play it the same way in live performances was not ‘art’ in his mind. He rebelled, writing Vegetable Man as the band’s next single but it was never released and stayed dormant for years. Within a few months, Syd was out of the band.

Produced by Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Ritchie Furay October 1967

Interesting that Jim Messina (soon to be of Loggins and Messina) was working for Atlantic Records as an engineer at the time. After the production debacle of their first album, the three principle singers decided to produce the second one resulting in a rocking version of Mr. Soul that wouldn’t have been the same had it appeared on the first album.
