Ramsey Lewis-Mother Nature's Son...meet Mic Czechmate
Here we are ..the sounds of Rufus Harley's bagpipe blast through the speakers and me and Czechmate have just separated the remnants of some remaining St. Paddy's day magic shamrocks that I've reluctantly choked down with a gulp of Old Style we have a quarterbag of dust left...hold on..oh sweet Jesus! I abhor the heap of cowshit taste these things leave on the palate...make that a half of a quarter left....
let's not stray too far from the purpose.I have two objectives in this post
1. To weave the decadent and depraved retelling of how this gem was found and what can be expected when you hear it.
2 To introduce one of my wax sniffing, cohorts ,confidants,co-defendants as well as a co-conspirator who will post next on this blog with some sweet heat of his own.He is the victim of an evil wraith that I mentioned in a previous post.The foul, lecherous doppleganger of our boy Czechmate haunts every dig in this fair city.One day the doomed spirit will face us!This one,who is called JASON.DO NOT SPEAK OF THE CURSED DAMNED!!!!!THE HOLY WAX IS OURS MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!!!!
so let's get this story rolling before the burning in my stomach turns into something increasingly incomprehensible...let's see where were we? ah yes UUHhh..ok Ramsey Lewis-Mother nature's Son.this story begins a couple of years ago at an outdoor swapmeet in a humble little berg called Peavley ,the next county over, bout a hour's jag ,south ,down I-55 from St Louis ,where an early morning, free commerce ,ritual takes place every sunday.Meth gypsies,coke swilling,junk scavengers and old people from a sect that think "strings that attach to your glasses to keep them from falling off are the most ingenious hustle known to man"all of them gather to scoff,haggle and weasel themselves into a unbelievable bargain at the swap meet....
remember the objectives asshole!!good thing i outlined them before i started ,there is really no point to read on,or continue writing for that matter.....hope i post the right file...oh well we'll sort it out later.i gotta go.
Sorry folks had an epiphany while listening to Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience back to back.Shit almost got dangerous last night.It's a good thing nobody was armed.Let me mention a few things about this album that I failed to touch upon last night.Regardless of your feelings about the Beatles or Ramsey Lewis you should listen to this.I have to mention the arranger of this album,he did an awesome job.He is also responsible for the moog and theremin noodleling between the tracks.He goes by the name of Charles Stepney.That is all.Over and out
