Some really good stuff posted. Thanks. I can't pay you, but thanks. 🤠

 

"Sin City" · The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Gilded Palace Of Sin

 

The title is deceptive. It's not about Las Vegas, but about the music business in L.A.

 

Sin City’ The Flying Burrito Brothers | 1969

 

"...It became one of the signature songs of the country-rock movement in Los Angeles and a lasting, cynical anthem for the music industry...Hillman, a founder of the Byrds, was still deeply embittered by the implosion of that band and the machinations of its manager, the late Larry Spector. “Spector was a thief, it was as simple as that. And his condo, he lived on the 31st floor behind this awful, garish gold door...The song was also a cautionary dirge, Hillman said, to “people like Gene Clark from the Byrds, who came here from Kansas with all that talent and all bright-eyed and talented and idealistic, and the whole thing just swallowed him up.”

 

(plus you get to hear Sneaky Pete on pedal steel!)

Payola Blues - Neil Young & The Shocking Pinks (1983)

 

This one's for you Al Freed,
Wherever you go, whatever you do
'Cause the things they're doing today
Will make a saint out of you
Payola blues.
I've got the payola blues
Even though I already paid my dues.
Listen to me Mr. D.J., hear what I've got to say
If a man is making music, they ought to let his record play.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.
Well, here's three thousand, that ought to get it on.
Well, thanks a lot man! I love your new song.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.
And it goes like this.
I got a brand new record company, new manager too.
Got a great new record, I can't get through to you.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.
How about this new Mercedes Benz, that ought to get it on.
Well, thanks a lot man! I'll play it all day long.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.
I've got the payola blues, payola blues
I'm paying those payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

The king album of $$$$$ music, which IMO deserves also full size cover art reproduction.

What’s true of all the evils in the world is true of plague as well.
It helps men to rise above themselves.
