Leonard Cohen: Columbia - CS 9533

Leonard Cohen: guitar, vocals
Nancy Priddy: vocals
Chester Crill: keys
Chris Darrow: bass
Solomon Fieldhouse: various instruments
David Lindley: guitar

Produced by John Simon, 1967
Recorded at Columbia Studio E, NYC

"Suzanne" was inspired by Cohen's platonic relationship with dancer Suzanne Verdal. Its lyrics describe the rituals that they enjoyed when they met: Suzanne would invite Cohen to visit her apartment by the harbour in Montreal, where she would serve him Constant Comment tea, and they would walk around Old Montreal past the church of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, where sailors were blessed before heading out to sea.

The song was on his debut album Songs of Leonard Cohen. Cohen's recording was released as a single in 1968 but did not reach music charts. The song only charted after Cohen's death in 2016. Julie Collins had a big hit with it in 1966. The late Penny Lang told me during an interview that Cohen offered her the song first but she didn’t like the style.

Suzanne Pasternak RIP
b. New Jersey, 1950 / d. Kingston ON Aug 30, 2023

Born in New Jersey, Suzanne married Harry Pasternak and settled in Prince Edward County in the 1970s. By 1988, she was performing in a duo with Drew Ackerman. She was also researching and writing her folk opera, Minerva around that time and began performing it in the County – mostly at the Regent Theater in Picton. It was eventually picked up by the Mivishes as a possible production but after a few years of trying to get it done, they passed on it. She also wrote and produced other operas, including Solomon Mauk, Exiles as well as a TV production about the last of the Lake Ontario fisherman.

In putting on such performances, Suzanne utilized the talents of both experienced musicians and newbies, one of which was Emily Fennell (Miss Emily) who started out in Minerva as a young teen. Suzanne’s daughter, Natasha, followed in her mother’s footsteps, performing in Toronto band Hands and Teeth in the early 20teens and has spent the last few years in Los Angeles.

Sun soaked, lubricated and ready for fun! That’s why I like this song. From Buffett’s break-through album of the same name featuring his gigantic hit, Margaritaville. It’s one of those rare albums where every song is important to the flow; every song is relevant and makes it perfect.

In 1944 he participated in a recording date led by Coleman Hawkins, for which he also arranged the material.[3] After the Second World War he led his own groups, which concentrated on rhythm and blues as jazz turned from swing to bop. His biggest R&B hit was "Because of You", which reached number 1 on the US Billboard R&B chart, and number 20 on the pop chart, in 1951. " Smith retired from the music business in the early 1960s.

Traditional Version (Trad)
The Famous Charisma Label CSX-3602

Malcolm MacLaren: square dance calls
Produced by Trevor Horn 1982
Recorded at Tri-State Studios, Tennessee
Malcolm Robert Andrew McLaren (b. London UK, 22 January 1946 – d. Bellinzona, Ticino,
Switzerland, 8 April 2010)

McLaren was well known as the manager of the Sex Pistols.
In 1983, McLaren released Duck Rock, an album that, in collaboration with producer and co-writer Trevor Horn and The World's Famous Supreme Team (a duo of hip hop radio disc jockeys from New York City who hosted a hip hop and classic R&B show on WHBI 105.9 FM and were among the first DJs to introduce the art of scratching to the world), mixed up influences from Africa and the Americas, including hip hop. The album helped bring hip hop to a wider audience. Two of the singles from the album ("Buffalo Gals" and "Double Dutch") became top-10 hits in the UK, with "Buffalo Gals" a minor hit in some major cities in the US.
"Buffalo Gals" is a traditional song that dates back to the 1800s, where it was often played at minstrel shows. The "Buffalo" refers to the city of Buffalo, New York, but the lyrics were altered to fit the place where the song was performed. McLaren changed the refrain from "Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight" to "Buffalo gals, around the outside."
Trevor Horn, who was a member of Yes and the Buggles, put together the beats, scratches, music and McLaren's rap to make the song. Truly one of the very first hip-hop records. Here’s Trevor Horn’s take on recording the square dance version:
So we’re in this studio in Tennessee called Tri-State Studios and The Hilltoppers showed up and they were in a purple VW van that had carpet on the inside, purple carpet. There was a very old Hilltopper who had a hat on saying “the oldest Hilltopper” – he was about 92. And then there were a few children who looked like they might have had interesting parents ’cause they were cross-eyed and a bit strange looking. And they started to play. We set up some mics around the studio and they started to play and they were awful. Malcolm came up to me and said: “This is awful. You’re the producer, get rid of them.” So I had to go over and say: “Guys, that was great, that’ll do for what we need. Thanks very much, here’s $50.” And they were happy enough and off they went in their purple VW.
And I said to the guy who owned the studio: “Do you think you can get us any musicians?” In the southern states of America they’re very laid back. “Yeah, yeah, should be able to. Utility pickers.” “Utility pickers, great.” “Gimme some time, I’ll get on the phone.” So a bunch of guys showed up and they all had that slightly tough, hard-bitten American look until they smiled. They set up and they could obviously play really well. They were crazy guys. I remember going to the toilet and there’s about five of them doing great big lines of blow off the sink in the toilet. And I remember Malcolm saying: “We’ve got the single, great.”

They went back to England and brought over the World's Famous Supreme Team and Zulu singers (two NYC djs) and did the hip hop version.

Peter Tosh b. 19 October 1944 Grange Hill, Jamaica / d. 11 Sept 1987(42) Westmoreland, Jamaica

Mystic Man is my favourite Peter Tosh album. Just after it came out, in 1979, I got to see him play at the Ontario Place Forum, in Toronto (with the revolving stage). Reggae was still new to most of us, Bob Marley was the only Reggae name most of us knew back then. Held together by Sly and Robby (bass and drums), the album, in my opinion, is perfect in every.
