Subject: BS: I think I'm in love with Harvey Andrews
From: mg
Date: 10 Jan 03 - 11:34 PM

just got my plum C.D. and I can't stop playing the song about the steel guitar..then I go back and play Big Mick and then Start of the County Down..don't want to leave anyone out..they are all just great..love the White Snow song..

I think it's the line about it tore them apart as it came from his heart and they'd not heard that heart for so long

When my ship comes in I'll buy a whole CD of his. (This doesn't mean I'm not in love with everyone on Plum..)

Subject: Lyr Add: FROM THE HEART (Harvey Andrews)
From: mg
Date: 10 Jan 03 - 11:54 PM

He'd an old-fashioned way when he started to play.
He'd an old-fashioned steel guitar.
With no amps and no leads, it fulfilled all his needs
And together they'd both traveled far.

Just an old troubadour on an old barroom floor,
Just an old troubadour and his song,
But it tore them apart 'cause it came from his heart
And they'd not heard that heart for so long.

Then a kid playing pool said, "This old man's a fool.
He's not cool; just a ghoul past his prime, past his prime."
So he walked to the wall where the jukebox stood tall
And he paid for some hits of the time.

Then a girl passed him by with a look in her eye
That said, "Don't even try to oppose,"
Pulled the plug from the wall, said, "An ass needs a stall
And we all hope you've got one of those."

She stood her ground. She stared him down.
The kid raised a fist, then he smiled.
He said, "You're wasted on him," then he turned with a grin
And he said, "Girls like you drive me wild.
You're young enough to be the old man's child."

When the kid left the room, the chord filled the gloom
And the voice sang a song for the stars,
For the breeze in the trees, for nights such as these,
And for girls who find lovers in bars.

And when the chord died like a wave on the tide,
Like the cry from a high-flying bird,
He put down his guitar. She said, "I've got my car,
And a job if you just say the word."

So that old troubadour left that old barroom floor.
Yes, that old troubadour sang her song,
And it tore her apart 'cause it came from his heart,
And she'd not felt that heart for so long.

He'd an old-fashioned way when he started to play.
He'd an old-fashioned steel guitar.
With no amps and no leads, it fulfilled all his needs.
Together they'd both traveled far.

Just an old troubadour on an old barroom floor,
Just an old troubadour and his song.
But it tore them apart 'cause it came from his heart,
And they'd not heard that heart for so long.

Yes, it tore them apart 'cause it came from his heart,
And they'd not felt that heart for so long.

Mary, I'm in love with Harvey, too -- at least with his incredibly beautiful voice and with that song!

I'm actually going to learn it and sing it at song circles, but I gotta say, I'm already feeling inadequate about it, since there's no way I can make it sound anywhere near as good as Harvey's own version.

Thanks for posting the lyrics. I will add them to the liner notes thread for that CD (Plum, right?).

I shouldn't come in here, because it may stop the thread and it's making me feel good! Many thanks Mary and all others. Her indoors will post too. Just for the record, a couple of things in the lyric above are misheard so here's the corrections. It's great to think of the songs being sung. As I always say, "A song unsung is a dead song" (to the tune of "Hi, Lily, hi lily, hi lo").

He'd an old-fashioned way when he started to play.
He'd an old-fashioned steel guitar.

But it tore them apart 'cause it came from his heart
And they'd not heard that art for so long.

Then a kid playing pool said, "This old man's a fool.
He's not cool; just a ghoul past his prime."
So he walked to the wall where the jukebox stood tall
And he paid for some hits of the time.

And for girls who find lovers in bars.

And when the chord died like a wave on the tide,

And a jar if you just say the word."

I emailed the words to HP from Sunnycamp Rainycamp etc. and he is going to learn the song...and even buy the mudcat C.D. so we can definitely probably sing it at RC. I have only played it about 12 times already.    But I'm also occasionally letting the rest of the c.d. play which is quite lovely. Please tell your wife it is entirely platonic. I only speak for myself though. Mick and Genie et al. will have to speak for themselves. Mick I hope you're not jealous but you like THE FAIR ONE best anyway. mg

this whole process reminds of when we went to Camp Alexandra in B.C. and heard Bill Gallagher sing Mary and the Seal. I has a great chorus..the sea it rolls out and then it rolls in.. I had a bathroom light that turned on the electricity and I had a tape recorder with the song on it and every time I turned onthe bathroom light the song came on. Came to the next song circle with the song and found Bruce B. and Cathy R. had the same notion..and we've sung it ever since....and remember when the song Jill King found or spread..long life and success to the farmer...spread like wildfire...mg

I've been thinking about "job" and "Jar" and I think it's the way an American ear hears the words as compared to a UK ear. In the UK we say "job" but in America it sounds more like "jaarb", so to a U.S ear jar would sound like jaarb without the b!
This of course works the other way round and i always listen to U.S cd's with the lyrics in front of me. In another hundred years will we have a common language?
No criticism intended by the way. I'm just hypothesising as i try hard not to sing with that awful mid-Atlantic accent so beloved of English pop artists from Elton John to whoever.

I think good CD of Harvey's to get first is

"25 years on the road"

It is my favourite because it is just him and the guitar, sometime people add so much to their recordings that the sound is completely different to what attracted you in the first place e.g. the live performance.

Harvey Andrews was the first Folk singer I ever saw/heard when my dad dragged me along to our local Folk Club, I then went back time after time and I still love discovering new artists and new songs whether completely new or hearing old songs the first time.

I haven't heard the "steel guitar" song yet but I've been singing "English Ale" and "If It Wasn't For The Song" here in San Francisco. My copy of "The Gift" should arrive any day now. Harvey Andrews is an exceptional song writer whose craft combines good lyrics with good melodies in a way that certainly touches my heart.

Well, as much as I don't want his head to get any bigger, I'm gonna relay a bit of information from one of his performances in Toronto. I have NEVER seen a performer elicit great laughter AND tears (at the same time) from a monologue. I'm told Billy Connoly does it, but that's pretty good company. Must take a hell of a lot of skill.

I cant believe this thread, he'll be making an entry dressed in a white cloak next!
I blame Topic records for an early compilation album.
Billy has more visual impact,perhaps Harvey can take note.
If he makes it again to St.Albans,and lets hope so,it could be mid-summer,so shorts and t-shirt,sunglasses and a hat,its all about image dont you think,as well as the music.

I turned the radio on last night as I was drifting off to sleep - a Welsh-language folk/C&W programme on Radio Cymru - just as this incredibly beautiful voice was getting stuck into a song. (Yonks better than the usual fair on this programme) At the end, the hosts, John and Alun (a Welsh folk/C&W duo), asked if anyone knew the latest on this great singer, Harvey Andrews!

So, Harvey, your Welsh public demand to know! (I think their e-mail would be this .

I was in Lichfiled on Saturday, and saw a poster outside the Guildhall to the effect that he was appearing that very night. Sorry Harvey, but my nephew's third birthday party took precedence! Oh, and I saw your fans in Stonnall, but they were all inthe village panto that night. You really must time the next one better!

Joe
Try and get hold of a copy of SNAPS by Harvey.
I've got a couple of CD's and tapes including 25 years on the road, but I keep on playing "Snaps". I don't know why perhaps it's because the songs seem so personal to him it's like he's letting you into part of his life that he kept hidden before.

I last saw Harvey when he came to Falmouth and he was as fresh as when I saw him 15 years previously, he just seems to go on and on enjoying performing.

Thanks Harvey

John

Cheers John, It's my favourite too! (Although one shouldn't have a favourite child). I used four of the songs in the musical play "Go and play up your own end" script by Malcolm Stent, music and songs by me. It's about a Brummie childhood and the street of neighbours in 1950's England. It's certainly hit a chord somewhere because it's going on at the Alexandra theatre in Birmingham in March which will mean it will have played all the theatres in Birmingham, Britains second city, in a space of four years.I understand that no other production in theatre history has done this before.
You should get to see it, it's funny and sad and the people tell us it's got that wonderful ingredient that comes from who knows where..."woofle dust".

Dear Havey Andrews:

I ordered "The Gift" from your website and got no response. I'm not blaming you personally but thought you should know about it. Maybe there's some glitch in the ordering system.

'Go and play up your own end!' Blimey, that brings it back -- Main Street, Sparkbrook, usually shouted at us if we'd ventured into Spark Street or Long Street (having ignored our nan's warning 'Don't go in the 'orse road!') I'll try to get up to the Alex to see that.

Slight thread creep or coincidence corner: BUT... when my dad was working as an insurance agent for the Co-op he called on Malcolm Stent's family and used to tell me of Malcolm's forays into show biz (Malcolm wrote the book of the play for which Harveyt supplied the music, and I think appears in it).

I showed Dad the entry for the play in "What's on in Birmingham" today. Just got back from visiting him.
Also the hotel we stay in when we go to see my dad, the Lyndhurst
(HERE)
in Kingsbury Rd about 100 yards away from him, is where I understand, the Jug o'Punch Folk Club moved to (it was in Digbeth in the '60s, I seem to remember and the Campbells the stars.

Probably not,Steve, while some friends at the time were great Jug patrons, I was usually at the jazz club "Opposite Lock" in Gas Street Basin, though I certainly saw the Ian Campbell Band somewhere in those days -damn CRS!

While we're on a Brummie nostalgia thread-creep, chaps, did you ever get to Le Metro, a Blues club under the arches of Snow Hill Station, or the wonderful Mothers in Erdington?

Just been reading the "Songs to stop the war" thread and this reminded me of Harvey's "Death come Easy"

The words are in the DT although not attributed to Harvey and can be found here
Death Come Easy

I still sing this song, it is eminently singable and so appropriate at this time. Although the US has not yet reach the point of calling so many young men to war.

No, it's by Harvey's fellow Brummie Ian Campbell, Nutty.

I was looking for something else last night and found Tomorrow is a highway amongst my old songsheets. I think this may be a good time to start learning it.

Actually Steve "Death come easy" is one of my very early efforts. The Campbell group recorded it.

Although I must confess to being in love with someone else, I'm starting to adore Harvey too! His insightful, honest postings remind me that I am not actually the only person in the world who, for instance, really dislikes loud bass-base pop music being played in every shop, bar, car, public space (how long before we get it in our libraries I wonder?!). That I am not the only person in the world who does not like smoky pubs. And that maybe, just maybe, I am not at fault somehow for disliking these things the UK in 2003! Harvey is one of my precious islands of sanity. Thank you Harvey :)

Aw, shucks! But isn't that what Mudcat is all about? Seems I've spent my life always being in the 30% on every issue about everything. Here, I don't feel so isolated. At least there's always Rick Fielding to re-direct me if I get too out of line.
As to music in libraries...well it's in the bookshops now!
