Coulda, Shoulda Been Big in the States
I'll keep looking in iTunes and used record stores for the extremely long version of "Don't Try to Lay..." which begins with an funny spoken monologue about Baldry's trial on charges of playing "boojie-woojie," and which also features some raucous piano solos, but as the other song goes, "you can't always get what you want."
For those who don't know
These tracks from 1971 feature Elton John on piano, Rod Stewart on vocals, & Ron Wood on guitar.
Intro to "Don't Try to Lay No Boogie-Woogie"
I had the pleasure of booking and working with Long John Baldry with Kathi McDonald ( Big Brother, Stones,...) twice in the eighties. Complete and total excess and fun. "Nothing exceeds like excess and vodka. Sorry that's redundant." If you enjoy this music, please check out John Baldry: Boogie Woogie, Warner Brothers. This is the only CD version of both "It Ain't Easy" and "Everything Stops for Tea" plus bonus tracks (13) in a single package. You have everything on one. The one I wish I had on digital was "I was standing on the corner smoking mari..juana.." That is a great album. John should be in the rock and roll hall of fame. The influence he and John Mayall had on Rock and Roll in the U.S. is not understood or appreciated.
