It Ain't Easy Ron Davies. Morning, Morning Tuli Kupferberg. I'm Ready Willie Dixon. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Long John Baldry. Retrieved Retrieved February 21, December 8, The Vinyl District. Love In Vain [Robert Johnson cover] Midnight Hour Blues [Leroy Carr cover] Black Girl [Alternate Take] It Ain't Easy [Alternate Take] I'm Ready [Alternate Take] It sounds just brilliant - analogue warm and in your face for all the right reasons. Music wise - this is pre "Every Picture Tells A Story" and "Madman Across The Water" - I mention these albums specifically because Side 1 sounds like "Picture" produced by Rod and featuring his backing band , while Side 2 sounds like a more rockier version of "Madman" produced by Elton etc.
Couple this with great song selections fast and folky alike and Baldry's British toff speaking voice sounding like a guttural fired-up Eric Burden when he sings and the effect is magical But the real fireworks for me come in the blistering bonus tracks. Faces and Mercury-years Rod Stewart fans will flip for these - 4 are acoustic 11, 12, 14 and 15 , while the other 2 are band orientated 16 and In fact it almost sounds like these tracks represent the true spirit of the sessions - an unplugged pure blues album trying desperately to get out - get past all that production.
Infuriatingly, it doesn't say who plays the harmonica and acoustic guitar on the fabulous version of "Going Down Slow" or the weird cello intro on the Alternate "Black Girl"? A fabulous little reissue then - and it compliments his second album for Warner Brothers that followed shortly afterwards "Everything Stops For Tea" which is also now reissued.
Its B-side - a raucous cover of Sister Rosetta Tharpe's gospel tune "Up Above My Head" - featured an uncredited duet vocal with a sensational new singer it was Rod Stewart's first vinyl appearance. You have to say that Rod The Mod certainly repaid the gallant Englishman for this launching pad, when he put together this wicked little album for him in at the behest of Joe Smith - President of Warners.
With Baldry lost to us since , this is a lovely way to remember him - and well done to all those involved for finally seeing it reissued. Rest in Peace you British beautyIntro: Conditional Discharge: 2: Don't Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie On The King Of The Rock And Roll: 3: Alternate cover artwork to some original vinyl releases Other Versions (5 of 28) View All.
