Yeah, I heard about Ginger Baker...I'll have to dig out my VHS copy of Cream's "Farewell Concert" now... :-k

Besides Blind Faith, Masters Of Reality, Blues Incorporated and Ginger Baker's Air Force, there was The Baker Gurvitz Army...All of their albums are worth buying, but "Elysian Encounter" is probably their tour de force...Here's a good one from it...R.I.P. Ginger! :(

Ed Cherney passed away this week. I don't have room to list all the records he engineered.

I also wanted to note the passing of a great songwriter, Irving Louis Burgie, at the age of 95...

https://fox5sandiego.com/2019/12/01/man ... ies-at-95/

He wrote (or co-wrote) quite a few classics (sometimes under the name Lord Burgess) for Mr. Harry Belafonte, including these...







Artists who have recorded his songs include The Kingston Trio, Jimmy Buffett, Carly Simon, Brian Wilson, Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry and many more!

Quite an accomplishment from the man! =D>

R.I.P. Mr. Burgie! We will always remember and love your music! :)

I wonder if The Banana Boat Song and Jamaica Farewell were on opposite sides of the same 45...I remember my father playing them very often (if not constantly) when I was a little kid...seems that the 45 had a yellow label??

Sad Mr Burgie has passed, author of a lot of a lot of memories...

I believe they were on side A of his Calypso album anyway. I also must say that I never knew the name Irving Louis Burgie until now, but the songs he wrote for Harry Belafonte are very familiar.

Likewise remember my mother playing both Day-O (The Banana Boat Song) and Marianne regularly. I don't recall any other Belafonte songs, so have always assume they were A and B sides of the same 45. At that time I thought they had a very "exotic" sound to them. Still do to tell the truth. 🍌 :(

Is it possible that the Banana Boat song and Marianne were actually flipsides of the Tarriers version? I believe the US issue of this might have been on a yellow label.

It could be...I'm willing to bet, too, that a lot of you didn't know that The Tarriers' lead singer was actor Alan Arkin? :-k

One of the later members, Marshall Brickman, went on to co-write the screenplay for "Annie Hall" with Woody Allen and win an Oscar! =D>
