#themusicologist [#804] Wailers– Bend Down Low

The Upsetter’s [Lee Perry] BURIAL version of the Wailers 1966 Studio 1 classic…

 

“Fighting to preserve things as they are inevitably becomes a battle to think and speak of things in certain ways, either defensively or preemptively. We face the future empty-handed, language-wise; we are dumb in the face of the future.” George Orwell

#themusicologist [798] the Wailers – the World is Changing

One from the Wailers with Father ‘Touch’ singing lead. A favourite of my auntie Deb’s. The Wailers were a MAJOR element of the ‘urbnsoundtrack’ for us growing up on the streets of London throughout the 1970’s beginning with my introduction as a 4 year old in 1973 via the ‘Catch a fire’ [Zippo lighter cover] LP all the way through to ‘Uprising’. MANY hills and gullies travelled along the ‘way’…

#themusicologist [795] Dennis Brown – Here I Come

My Auntie Debbie ‘passed through’ this, mortal phase yesterday. She was more than an ‘aunt’ to me, a BIG part of our lives from birth.

MANY times ‘family’ is just a word used to categorise a/the relationship between people who share the same blood, other times ‘family’ signifies a bond between people who share and are linked by vibrational ‘energy’, these are the bonds that can never be broken no matter what phase we are in.

The [first] law of thermodynamics, (aka the conservation of energy), states that energy can be neither created nor destroyed. Energy can/does change form, and energy can/does flow from one place to another.

My auntie Debbie, like my daughter Constance and ‘Farve’ is still ‘here’, with us in everything, guiding us along the ‘way’..

The next run of cuts are for those who knew and know the feeling of losing and being left behind by loved ones …you all know who you are.

ALL of the cats named above LOVED and were moved by, connected, (in a BIG way), to and were FLUENT native speakers of in the universal language, (music).

Always in our hearts, souls and minds..x
