Steve Forbert – That’d Be Alright

“Big City Cat – My Life in Folk-Rock” is singer/songwriter Steve Forbert’s exceptional new memoir, co-written with Therese Boyd in which he most candidly reflects on those specific circumstances that first brought him to the public eye. Originally conceived as a stage play and screen treatment, it finds him documenting the early adventures of a small town Mississippi boy in the Big City, pursuing his quest to make music. Sharing reflections and journals he kept at the time, he weaves an absorbing narrative that fully addresses the trials, travails and triumphs that would eventually play out over the course of his prolific 40+ year career including encounters with the Ramones, Sam Phillips, Keith Richards, Doc Pomus, Levon Helm and others notables along the way.

The book is accompanied by its own soundtrack as well, an evocative new album entitled The Magic Tree that offers a series of songs gleaned from previously recorded acoustic demos, augmented with new backing tracks and fleshed out as a series of songs that ring with the verve and vitality that Forbert’s fans have always come to expect. Consistently upbeat and optimistic, they convey a firm sense that age ought not diminish a lust for living. Then again, that’s been Forbert’s mantra ever since the beginning: honoring his past while plowing his way towards the future. The Magic Tree serves as sound track to Steve’s new memoir, Big City Cat a chronicle of his forty years making music. The album rings with the verve and vitality that Forbert’s fans have always come to expect. It takes on special meaning in light of the recent health scare that sidelined him for several months while he recovered from kidney surgery and chemotherapy. Consistently upbeat and optimistic, the album’s songs convey a firm sense that age ought not diminish a lust for living. The Magic Tree underscores what revered critic the late Paul Nelson wrote about Forbert in Rolling Stone almost 40 years ago: “… Nothing, nothing in this world, is going to stop Steve Forbert, and on that I’ll bet anything you’d care to wager.”

The English Beat – You’re Stuck

The Beat was formed in Birmingham, England, in 1978, during a period of high unemployment and social upheaval in the United Kingdom. Ranking Roger, one of the band’s vocalists, added a Jamaican vocal flavour to the band’s sound with his toasting style.

Jamaican saxophonist Saxa added a Jamaican ska instrumental sound. Saxa (born Lionel Augustus Martin in 1930) had played saxophone with Prince Buster, Laurel Aitken, and Desmond Dekker in the first wave of ska.

He joined The Beat to record their first single, “Tears of a Clown”, a cover version of the Motown hit by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.
