    The rhythm of the song was also inspired by the morse code signal for the airport (see 2:35):

    Made a start rather than holding for the binge-watch. Two in and very good. It's very darkly lit but I think that adds to the ambience.

    Exactly spot on. If we were doing a top 5 song performances from all the archive releases, that Price You Pay would be in mine. One of the absolute treasures from this series

    Honestly, it sounds like a beautiful way for an artist to go. Singer-songwriter David Olney has died at age 71, after falling silent and dropping his head in the midst of a performance at the 30A Songwriters Festival in Florida Saturday night. Some news reports said he “collapsed” on stage, but that isn’t quite true: Olney simply became still on his stool, leading some audience members and even the musicians beside him to think he was simply taking a pause, before they realized what had happened and lowered him to the stage. Olney was giving his second festival performance of the day as part of an “in the round” song-swap show with Amy Rigby, who was sitting next to him and described his last moments. “Olney was in the middle of his third song when he stopped, apologized, and shut his eyes,” Rigby wrote on Facebook. “He was very still, sitting upright with his guitar on, wearing the coolest hat and a beautiful rust suede jacket we laughed about because it was raining like hell outside the boathouse where we were playing — I just want the picture to be as graceful and dignified as it was, because it at first looked like he was just taking a moment.” Added Rigby, “Scott Miller had the presence of mind to say we needed to revive him. Doctors in the audience and 30A folks were all working so hard to get him to come to … We all lost someone important last night.” Miller described the scene similarly in his own post: “David was playing a song when he paused, said ‘I’m sorry’ and put his chin to his chest. He never dropped his guitar or fell of his stool. It was as easy and gentle as he was. We got him down and tried our best to revive him until the EMTs arrived. … The world lost a good one last night. But we still have his work. And it still inspires. And always will. RIP.” A half-hour performance Olney gave earlier in the day on his own was captured on video and posted to YouTube. Olney was a revered figure in the folk-rock and Americana communities who had recorded 20 albums of his own as well as having his songs covered by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury and his former roommate Steve Earle. The late Townes Van Zandt famously said of Olney: “Any time anyone asks me who my favorite music writers are… I say Mozart, Lightnin Hopkins, Bob Dylan and Dave Olney. Dave Olney is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever heard — and that’s true. I mean that from my heart.” Harris, in particular, brought attention to Olney as a songwriter with her covers of “Jerusalem Tomorrow” in 1993 and “Deeper Well” on her essential 1995 album “Wrecking Ball.” Olney first became known as a member of the X-Rays, a more raucous band that was signed to the Rounder label in the early 1980s and opened for acts like Elvis Costello. He also recorded for Rounder later in his prolific career as a solo artist, along with other labels like Philco. He had just completed a new album. Brett Ryan Stewart wrote on his Facebook page: “Yesterday, myself, Anana and Irakli had spent the day making final revisions to the album we made with David Olney. In the very same moment that we hit the save button, collectively yelling ‘We did it!’ we got the news that David, who was in Florida performing, had passed away, on stage. It’s all very surreal. … I am so grateful for our time together. I recognized a kindred spirit in him from day one. His stories, his encouragement, his wisdom. Hands down was of the funniest, gentlest, most thoughtful and charming curmudgeons to have graced the earth. Was really looking forward to more.” The 30A Songwriters Festival takes place in 32 venues along coastal Florida’s scenic Hwy 30A. The acoustic nature of many of the shows attracts folk, Americana and roots performers, although, with Brian Wilson as one of the headliners this year, it spotlights other genres as well. Olney was doing his third performance of the fest when he passed away, having performed the previous night in-the-round with Amelia White and Mary Bragg before his solo show Saturday afternoon. He was also scheduled to appear this week at the Folk Alliance gathering in New Orleans. Born in 1948, the musician moved to Nashville in 1973 after and became part of what some would describe as a seminal alternative-country scene that included Earle, Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Rodney Crowell. Outside of performing his own material, Olney appeared at the Nashville Shakespeare Festival in shows like a contemporary updating of “As You Like It,” and he was known to write his own sonnets. Said Emmylou Harris, “David Olney tells marvelous stories, with characters who cling to the hope of enduring love, all the while crossing the deep divide into that long, dark night of the soul.” Olney is survived by his wife, Regine, daughter, Lillian, and son, Redding. Services have not yet been set. In the wake of his passing, some fans and friends posted videos that shared his lighter side, like his cover of the Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood classic “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’,” which revived the go-go choreography of the original. Others naturally opted for his more elegiac numbers, like “The Moment I Tell You Goodbye,” with these lyrics: The ceiling will fall to the floor The windows will walk out the door The old clock will run out of time And reason will run out of rhyme The sea will no longer be blue The truth will no longer be true And ev’rything left is a lie The moment I tell you goodbye Tomorrow will never begin Forever will come to an end The sun will fall from the sky The moment I tell you goodbye

    Words of a forever lost love and an achingly beautiful melody to it is all I need. I've been there and so many others have...Seeing your lost love with her/his new love. It hurts like hell in your heart and this song and its sentiment and that melody with beautiful harmonies by Bobby Hatfield of The Righteous Brothers makes me feel the very same way but it heals me through a feeling of sympathy rather than destroys me. It's a masterpiece in my eyes.

    Its the spca phone numbers for 'her family' to call When we took Borris to the vet to get fixed they wanted to papler collar her too before they would do the opp - but that was after i had paid them for microchipping so it was total bullshit Sometimes a stray is just a stray because they have no human family Any way she is sitting in the shade with Tibby under the clothes line, both with a belly full of cat sussage (its like dog roll for cats- that's what i use as the 'extra meals through the day and at bedtime - Tibby loves it )

    Pretty song. Jesse wrote this for his mother. Broken Radio I was thinking about another time still in my mind When I used to know a little girl high on this world Your baby loves you more than you know Raised on rivalry and rock 'n' roll Moving to the Motor City soul She lets go On the radio Well we never had a lot of cash But we loved those kids Some say that she missed the boat But she just burned the bridge The angels love you more than you know Raised on robbery and rock 'n' roll Moving to the Motor City soul She takes hold On the radio Stomach ache Sundays And books we never read Well I was hoping one day We might meet again She used to talk about astrology She was born in June She danced with strangers and celebrities Empty stars and the full moon I was thinking about the universe For what its worth Or the one about the Phoenix bird That died and then returned The angels love you more than you know Raised on robbery and rock' n roll Moving to the Motor City soul Moving to the Motor City soul Sometimes I see her face When there's no place to go On the radio On the radio On the radio Broken radio

    I'm not sure if this was the original topic discussing the two 1977 archive releases, but it was the only one popping up when I searched for '1977' so I will just post this here: Not having a new archive release this month, gave me the time to look back and reflect on what we've gotten so far. I stumbled upon these two shows and decided to give them a spin, although my expectations were quite low. But soon I realised that I've never really listened to these performances carefully, because these shows are absolutely GREAT!! Sure, the sound quality is not everywhere perfect and there are some cuts during a couple songs, but these imperfections only add to the authentic feeling that these shows bring. Let us also not forget that the existence of these tapes are a sheer miracle!! They form a historic artefact!! And musically these shows are absolutely awesome as well, highlights include rendezvous, it's my life, the promise, auction in the streets (!!!), growin' up, backstreets (with the famous interlude! (Which was something I thought Bruce had only done during the '78 tour.)), something in the night. Plus, the shows have HORNS! Horns you say? YES, HORNS!!! Something I had forgotten completely, but was such a pleasant surprise when I heard them! I guess 1977 was not a pleasant time to tour for Bruce, he had a lot on his mind, (he even said something like "I've only about 100 bucks in my pocket"), but he doesn't show that to the audience! As always our Hero is giving his everything, making the shows a joy to listen to. Thanks Bruce & ESB & Miami Horns

    I think Brucie is getting his hair 'ready' for the next tour It doesn't necessarily have to be on his head at the same time, y'know.

    I skimmed through this earlier this morning and didn't really give it a second thought (sorry!) but came back here after reading your post in the Unpopular thread and after listening to the song a couple of times to remind myself of it and to let it sink in. Firstly, another amazing post, mate. I'd listened to the song twice before reading and didn't think too much of it. I agreed it was sad, but the saddest song in his catalogue? Then I read your post again, and you have this amazing knack to cut through the lyrics and the music and, well, just fucking analysis it while expressing yourself! Man, that's what I want to be able to do with my reviews! (I tried to do that with "The Klansman" on page 54, to be honest.) I'm on the fourth or fifth play though now and I feel that it cuts so deep because of the instrumentals and tone. It is hopeful, somewhat upbeat, but when you separate the music and the lyrics everything you say comes to light. And it's great. I do love the ambiguity of his crime and for me that's the epitome of Bruce's songwriting legacy, how he allows us to add our own thoughts, questions and ideas to these songs. I've got an idea of what he did a long time ago, but what I'm thinking is probably so different to what's came to your mind. We need that BITUSA box set fuckin' asap.

    Oh yeah- I've never seen as much air drumming anywhere besides a Rush concert. I'm so sad I'll never get to see them live again. I mean, it was pretty much a given after Neil's retirement, but there was a least a small chance for something...
