SHOCKING BLUE -Out of sight,out of mind / I like you

Seguimos presentando los simples de los Shocking , ninguno editado aqui , salvo los 2 primeros ,
siempre dentro el sonido que los caracteriza ,suenan un poco desplazados de lo que predomino en los primeros 70 , el rock progresivo o sinfonico , pero vistos 30 años despues envejecieron mejor
que algunos "supermusicos" de esa epoca . La banda suena ajustada y Mariska Veres es una de mis cantantes favoritas

MIKE McGEAR (McCARTNEY )- sea breezes 1975




El hermano menor de Paul con todo Wings ( en su mejor momento ) de acompañamiento
canta muy parecido a Paul , o es McCa en persona ? ,y es bueno diria que Sea Breezes ( composicion de Brian Ferry ) alcanza niveles tales que no desentonaria en alguno de los discos clasicos de Mc Ca and wings de mediados de los 70 . Producido y arreglado por Paul " estoy en todos lados" Mc Cartney.
El lado B es raro a la primera , pero sorprendente-mente esta 1o años adelantado a su tiempo , tiene una guitarra muy punzante y personal-mente me trae recuerdos de Flash and the Pan! de mediados de los 80' , increible -mente bueno .

GILBERT O'SULLIVAN -Alone Again /Save It 1972

El bueno de Gilbert esta de vuelta , esta vez con la cancion del verano del 72 ,clasico instantaneo
( y maravillosos recuerdos para mi por lo menos ) ,el lado B , es una linda cancion un poco mas energica , y creo que no esta en ningun disco .

In a little while from now,
If I'm not feeling any less sour
I promised myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower,
And climbing to the top,
Will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to who
Ever what it's like when your shattered
Left standing in the lurch, at a church
Where people saying,
"My God that's tough, she stood him up!
No point in us remaining.
We may as well go home."
As I did on my own,
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday,
I was cheerful, bright and gay,
Looking forward to, but who wouldn't do,
The role I was about to play
But as if to knock me down,
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch,
Cut me into little piecesLeaving me to doubt,
Talk about God and His mercy
For if He really does exist
Why did He desert meIn my hour of need?
I truly am indeed,
Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that
There are more hearts
Broken in the world
That can't be mended
Left unattended
What do we do? What do we do?
Alone again, naturally

Now looking back over the years,
And what ever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old,
My mother, God rest her soul,
Couldn't understand,
why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start with a heart
So badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally
