UP ON CRIPPLE CREEK The Band The Band (1970) When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go? Straight down the Mississippi river, to the Gulf of Mexico To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew She told me just to come on by, if there's anything she could do Up on Cripple Creek she sends me If I spring a leak she mends me I don't have to speak, she defends me A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one Good luck had just stung me, to the race track I did go She bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show The odds were in my favor, I had 'em five to one When that nag to win came around the track, sure enough she had won Up on Cripple Creek she sends me If I spring a leak she mends me I don't have to speak, she defends me A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one I took up all of my winnings, and I gave my little Bessie half And she tore it up and threw it in my face, just for a laugh Now there's one thing in the whole wide world, I sure would like to see That's when that little love of mine, dips her doughnut in my tea Up on Cripple Creek she sends me If I spring a leak she mends me I don't have to speak, she defends me A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one Now me and my mate were back at the shack, we had Spike Jones on the box She said, "I can't take the way he sings, but I love to hear him talk" Now that just gave my heart a throb, to the bottom of my feet And I swore and I took another pull, my Bessie can't be beat Up on Cripple Creek she sends me If I spring a leak she mends me I don't have to speak, she defends me A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one Now there's a flood out in California and up north it's freezing cold And this living on the road is getting pretty old So I guess I'll call up my big mama, tell her I'll be rolling in But you know, deep down, I'm kind of tempted To go and see my Bessie again. Up on Cripple Creek she sends me If I spring a leak she mends me I don't have to speak, she defends me A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

[Please read] The question you must answer: is he too fat for you? This video's star is Norman "Chubby" Chaney, a featured player in film producer Hal Roach's "Our Gang"/("Little Rascals") comedy shorts in the late '20s/early '30s. This video features clips from most of Chubby's film appearances. Spike Jones (and his City Slickers) and The Andrews Sisters "lend" their voices here and there as well as do the instruments of the talented players of the Beau Hunks Orchestra. This video was brewed in a humorous spirit, with a twist of "wink." Charge me with mischief combined with a fondness for Chubbs-—I am guilty. Accuse me not of malice or insensitivity for neither charge will stick. IMPORTANT: Questions or comments are sincerely welcome—but only if they are nice, clean, and comprehendible. If you are a professional and prefer that I delete this video, please contact me and it will promptly be done. PERSONAL NOTE TO EVERY INDIVIDUAL VIEWER: Thanks sincerely for playing this video. I'm glad and grateful if you enjoyed it. I think my own favorite "Chubby moments" are his interactions with Jean Darling and Mary Ann Jackson.

Frank Zappa - Questi Cazzi di Piccione - Yellow Shark London 2010 Roundhouse ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- When Frank Zappa delved into the realm of classical music, he was certainly not simply a rock musician orchestrating his rock songs for a classical orchestra. Zappa's interest in composing classical music actually predated his writing popular music by a couple of years. He had acquired a fascination with the music of Varese while still in his teens. Zappa despised rules, restrictions, expectations, and compartmentalization and had none of the reservations of other composers about borrowing freely from almost every modern idiom. You can find in Zappa's music stylistic flourishes derived from doo-wop, blues, country and western, jazz, punk-rock, heavy metal, reggae, bluegrass, cabaret, fusion, and classical domains, not to mention the vaudeville kind of musical satire championed by Spike Jones. Although Stravinsky, Bartok, and Mahler all brought non-classical influences into their works, no other composer in history had the ability to incorporate as disparate a range of influences into their music as Zappa, without sometimes sounding out of their element. Although Zappa's music was unique, it was not entirely divorced from the major trends in twentieth century classical music. He wrote mainly in the free-form atonal style developed by the likes of Schoenberg, Webern, and Berg in the opening decades of the twentieth century, but also incorporated the driving rhythms characteristic of Stravinsky. He integrated the popular music forms indigenous to his time and place, much in the manner of Bartok, Kodaly, Smetana, Villa-Lobos and other nationalist composers. Like Charles Ives and Aaron Copland, he advanced a distinctly American variety of classical music, rather than merely imitating European forms. His music evidences shades of Varese, Orff, and Weill, among others. You can find in some of Zappa's music the minimalism of Philip Glass or the mechanical precision of Conlon Nancarrow. Yet, despite all those influences, Zappa's music is distinctly his own. Astute listeners can usually recognize Zappa's personality in each of his works. From an engineering point of view, the music on this disc was produced more in the manner of rock music than classical recordings. Zappa meticulously grouped the musicians so that the music could be recorded in six separate tracks for later digital manipulation back in the studio. Many of the pieces heard on this album are composites derived not only from fine tuning the track mixes but also from seamlessly splicing together the best renditions of each section of each piece over the course of the several public performances.
