Blackberries (collab w/alley-oop)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
alley-oop: I want to thank Ledebutant for collaborating and letting me play on Blackberries. Creating the song was
a flawless procedure that took about two days (ha, two months) Mostly because I’m lazy.

I ran by a blackberry patch every morning for
inspiration. Yummy. I truly love the story she tells. Coming to America, nice story shared by so many. I never did get the line ‘blackberries that smelled of cedar trees.’ It must be an English thing. Thanks again Lisa.
-----------------
Ledebutant: Besides thanking Alley (and Aunt Gladys), I need to offer a big fat thank you to Alimar and Tom Atwood for all their help and advice while I was finishing this. Tom gave me the especially helpful tip, "Don't screw up." I hope I didn't.

Two months ago, alley-oop said, "Hey, let's collaborate," and sent me an amazing guitar bed. Unfortunately, it was a song that reminded me incredibly of Neil Young and I've always thought of him as a really, very American songwriter and I didn't think I could write something to go with the song. After panicking for a few days, I realized I did have something to write about and it goes a little something like this...

Lyrics
1978, the Bee Gees ruled the world,
our plane took off
two hours late from Heathrow.
Fifteen hours later,
we bought a New York Chrysler,
started driving the roads of our new home.

(America)

Drive on the right on the right on the,
Drive on the right. Keep to the right to the right to the, keep to the right.

American roads cross empty land,
so little here we can understand.
Clear-cut mountains, coal-soaked air,
Is there a place for us in America?

Outside Jonesboro,
my father stopped for gas.
The old guy behind the till
shot laughs at us.
As we drove away,
we heard him shout behind the car,
"By the way, it's Ar-kan-saw, not Ar-kansas."

American roads cross empty land,
so little here we can understand.
Clear-cut mountains, coal-soaked air,
Is there a home for us in America?

Road runs out at the Canadian border,
we marvel at blackberries,
the smell of cedar trees.
As we looked around we saw
what we might become:
a family of Americans.

American roads
Home?
So little here we understand
Is this home?
And how will we know?

Drive on the right on the right on the,
keep to the right.

I'm not really here but
I love this song. Very lush bed alley-oop has laid down
and your vocals are lovely as usual. These are fine lyrics,
ledebutant. The scene in Jonesboro, or Little Rock, or your
mind, rings especially true to someone who has lived in
Arkansas. Very touching piece.

Congratulations. You did not screw up.

In the end it was so easy, wasn't it. Remember that for the future. The right vocal was always there to be sung to fit the story. The Zen approach. You captured the true essense of the journey, with your voice, let us all take the trip with you. Whenever we want to take the road-trip in the 'New York Chrysler" with mom, dad, kid-brother and ledebutant, we can. Always. Sweet.

Easy. Oh yes, no stressed phone calls or pep talks required. None. Zippo.

This song was a dream to work on, but there was this really weird guitar
player involved and, well... I suppose that's a story for another time.

Thank you so much, Tom for all your help and for giving me such beautiful
music to play with. I would never have written this song without you.

goodness alley-oop. A winner all around.

The production (at least on my end, Alley's has always been great) did
improve this time, mostly because I tortured Alimar every time I had a
question. He even checked the final mix for me.

Thanks Slimmie and I didn't mention socks once, just for you.

Emigrant songs...
.... are one of my favourite genres. But you never see them
from this up-close perspective. That mix of nerves and
wonder. It's a lovely song and so obviously real. And Alley
Oop is such a wonderful musician; the guitar sings too.
Congratulations.

Ed Hannifin said 4518 days ago (August 4th, 2005)
There's a lot of good here...
This is a great job of lyric writing. The lyrics are really
good, and they continue your tradition of being just-off-
the-beaten-cliche, just to the left of normal pop
convention...

I just listened to this with headphones, and I have to also
say that you have gotten really good at doubling your
vocals...and doing extra little vocal bits...I really like that
sort of thing, and so I appreciate it...(I couldn't remember
if you were still using the pinhole mic...you and Beth...the
MXL-990 seems to suit your voice well...) There is, again,
some of that Roches blend...

I am troubled by some things that seem to be timing
glitches between the underlying guitar bed and the vocal,
especially at the first "American roads" part...My ears can't
sort it out yet, but most noticeably there and at a couple
of other spots it feels like the vocal-to-backing groove
slips off the cog...And at a couple of spots it seems like
the guitars lose synch with each other, or lose time...

Which is a shame, because, especially over the
headphones, the guitar work seems very pretty and nicely
recorded...After the first little intro lick, the rhythm has a
latter Neil Young "Harvest Moon" sort of melodicism...The
single note playing against the rhythm and the slide is
well conceived and balanced...and the bass slides into the
mix nicely...

CHAPTER THREE

No, just kidding...

Another really nice song, though....

There's a lot of good here...
There's no shame for me or Lisa in this. All the things you mentioned are true
and we were aware of, but what it comes down to is everything was first take,
all guitars and vocals. No going back in to clean stuff up. Just capture the
moment. I but appreciate your careful listening. I knew someone would notice
those things. We noticed them.

ledebutant said 4517 days ago (August 5th, 2005)
There's a lot of good here...
Thanks Ed, I enjoy the phrase, "off the beaten cliche". And I'm certainly glad
you think I'm to the left. alley and I were concerned that the whole "keep to
the right," lyric might send the wrong message.

Thanks also for listening to this with headphones. I experimented with pan
position and surrounding the listener with sound at points and think that's
the best way to listen to it, though I hope it works on regular speakers, too.

I think you're absolutely right about the timing issues. Tom and I both
recorded parts that were technically better, but lost a ton of the vibe of the
song. In the end, we decided to go with more of a live feel, a girl and some
guitars just singing a song. We do plan to go back and record it again in the
future. I genuinely appreicate your constructive criticism. Say hi to thepeep.
I'm his biggest fan.

Uh oh.

Did I actually offend you guys? I'm genuinely sorry if I did. I don't think of myself
as someone who goes around slamming other people's efforts. I try to be
appreciative in everything I write, while still leaving comments that have some
meat on their bones and that reflect an honest listen. I hope that comes across,
and if I phrased something badly there, I apologize.

Oh Lord no, Ed! I really appreciate what you said and would be heartbroken if you stopped given honest criticism. For me, besides just sharing what I'm doing, the biggest reason I'm posting songs here is to learn. If you ever hear something that you think needs fine-tuning, I'm begging you to speak up.

Mr. Oop (who is on vacation for the next two weeks) just hadn't had his breakfast that morning. Once I fed him, he cheered up.

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

Yay! The Foghorn, my homeboy. It was Bedfordshire I left behind.

I think Alley's guitar is amazing in this, though it is true, everything he makes
is from loops. I just wish I could figure out how he does it! (He's really a brat,
isn't he?) I hate to tell you, but he's an amazing guitar player and there's only
more to come. (Check out his song, "bleed," if you haven't heard it).

I'm glad you were in such a rush to fave the song, that means that at least
some of the subliminal messages in this song came through.

How Can You
do a song about Arkansas and not have a cowbell????
I'm so terribly disappointed that this enjoyable song with a
loose, lively feel, crisp production, enchanting vocals,
spirited guitar, and well written that evoke uncertainties and
wonders of being in a new place, does not have a cowbell.
ledebutant said 4514 days ago (August 8th, 2005)
How Can You
Sadly, my cowbell was confiscated as we left Arkansas. I had it back for a while, but after "Up in the Sky", they took it away again for "abuse."

I'm glad that you enjoyed the song otherwise. *whispering* I'll get that cowbell back if it kills me, Mungo. Look for it on the next version.

bronco said 4517 days ago (August 6th, 2005)
Can't Be On The Left
in America! The country is expansive but the minds are
not. Everyone has trouble with Arkansas! Been in trouble
there a few times myself. But relax America is not that
bad. Hey every country has people right? And they are all
the same whether the customs differ a little or not. Love
the way alley-oop's music meanders along. Almost like it
was the road and is slip sliding it's way through the
American dream.

Can't Be On The Left
Hah, bronco! Some day you'll have to tell the tale of your "Arkansas troubles."

I love alley's guitar playing on this. You're right that it slip-slides along; it probably guided me a lot more than I realized on the lyrics.

Cameron said 4517 days ago (August 6th, 2005)
nice atmosphere
The opening guitar chords immediately grabbed me, with
its very nice reverberant sound quality.

The lyrics tell a traveling story, and the vocal delivery
floats and meanders along to match. The recording
quality of your new mic is a definite improvement.

Sometimes the guitar and vocals doesn't quite match up
timing-wise; it's a bit out of synch in spots. This first
occurs in the middle of the opening line.

The chord progressions in the guitar break after "keep to
the right, keep to the right" seemed to lose the harmonic
focus present in the opening lines, then goes off in a
direction unrelated to the earlier chords. Then it gets back
on track with "Outside Jonesboro..."

This sequence happens again before "American Roads";
doesn't quite hold together smoothly.

You both have created a pleasant atmosphere in this tune,
reminiscent of the early 1970's. I believe that this song
could be made even better with a bit of tightening and
editing,

nice atmosphere
Oh yay! I always love to see you Cameron. Thank you so much for helping us identify some of the spots that need work. We're definitely going to go back to this song.

I really had a lot of anxiety around the recording of this vocal and this take was done first thing in the morning, without coffee or warming up. It was the only version that maintained the feel of the lyrics, but I know I can get something much better sounding. Also, all the timing issues need addressing, for sure.

Thanks again!

Well arn't you two just so damn cute! Blackberries! How sweet! Camudgeon slapple wanken slopper dull frito fly! I've been BeeGified like a twizzle stick! Funkmeistermagoo's slepppcat Hog Haus. Now, suddenly you find yourself without a mind and no more stories to read. Be it that you read them all and your going crazy (Bravo, you are one of life's losers), or you scrolled to the bottom of the page (The more likely possibility). At any rate, at this point you are no doubt asking yourself, "What now? should I listen to this song? Am I now forced to leave this jolly, care-free realm, and return to the tedium of my disgusting exscuse for a life?" The answer: No. Yes that's right, you can starve off returning to the real world where socks and cars abound, at least for a few more useless hours. But, that's not all. Not only do you get to stay in this floating pile of shit of chaos a little while longer, but you get to slobber on it. That's right, you get to put some of your own thoughts up for all the passers-by to see and mock and maybe try on your underwear. Yes, here in this happy land your thoughts don't matter (don't get to excited, you haven't seen how trivial your life is yet). Without further ado I present to you the floating turd of the month. The rules are simple: I ask a question, you answer it. If I actually get any responses, I will post them for all to see. Enjoy. Piss on it! Oh yeah really nice song Jibbles and Bibbly!

Wow what guitar brilliance
Is that alley-oop treating those strings? Nice intro man! I have something to learn from that guy:) Great work! Its a bit strange this tune.. shifting in pace and build-ups. But its very refreshing and original.
Lovely voice ledebudant:)

If I was in the room when the tweaking of knobs where going down, I guess I would have suggested to go a little bit easy on the reverb. I think it would bring you even closer. Would be nice to hear a more whispery close-to-the-mic kind of vox...
Just one more thing.. the vox seems a bit high in the mix at times, especially the backing vocals which I prefer to bring a bit down, so they wont compete som much whith the main vox.

So, good thing i wasn't there to mess things up;)

Lovely ambient sounding feel to it.

More please!

You have a new fan!

Treating really is the right word, thoddi. He treats those strings by playing them so beautifully. (Tom's on vacation, or I'm sure he'd thank you himself).

Thanks for the knob tweaking advice. I'm new at tweaking the knobs on something so complicated and I happened upon the forum thread about EQ, just a little too late. I also agree with you about the vox being a little high at times. I had a really hard time balancing it with the slide guitar, which I think needs more presence in the song.

I'm so glad you liked it.

band, but then I started listening to Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, John
McLaughlin, Miles Davis, Tom Waites and Roy Buchanan. major music shift

Delightful!
LeDebutant - such a beautiful voice, very wistful in this tune. Alley-Oop, this is a sweet little bouquet of a song, love the different instruments as they come blending in and out. Very tasty guitar - I love the mood of this tune and the pictures that it paints. Sweet....like blackberries!

Wow
Just wow. I'd give almost anything if you'd started writing and singing songs while Kyle was still alive. He admired you for so many other things, and didn't get the chance to see this side of you.

Hoping he can somehow hear this song.
ledebutant said 4275 days ago (April 5th, 2006)
Wow
Kay, you made me cry. It was worth writing this song just to think of Kyle
hearing it somewhere, now. Thank you so much for letting me know you're
still here in my life. (no spell check on this site, but lots of good music)

Love, Dig xo

Lounging along.....
This song has an interesting vibe. My first thought was "70s". So that first line was spot on.

You mention Neil Young, ok, I'll go along with that. My first thought was actually of America. I love those mutliple acoustic guitars as in "Ventura Highway".

Cool lyrics and great singing. The mood in this piece is very consistent, so as a collaboration I'd call it a success.

Now what the bloody whatnot is shaker doing there?! It's not needed, and it's not in time! Please make a version without it.

Victor.

I was just going nastalgic on myself...and cross refrenced 1978.( My brother posted a tune from his old Rutgers band Jasmine from '78.)
Found your tune here and with the perfect nostalgic refrences and overtones. thanks for being here.

Listening to some old stuff
Checking out some of your older stuff. Can't believe you only got a 7.88 rating for this(not that it matters).
You've got a Kim Deal or a Jewel sound on this.
The reason I'm checking out some of your old stuff is because you're have the best voice I've heard on this site.
Outstanding.
Bravo.

I've been writing songs since 2005, which I tried initially because GarageBand made it possible for me to play with music for the first time since college, and I found very quickly that I really loved songwriting and in my time here at Macjams, I've ... [see more]
