He believes to be divinely ordained his reluctant end.

He did have a vocal cord hemorrhage in the early fifties. So there's a reason for it but just because there's a good reason for it doesn't mean that it's great to listen to. Maybe you should have considered a different career then frank. There's nothing wrong with that. I do this video live. It was probably at madison square garden or something like that.

"frank sinatra" Discussed on So it's a show?: keeping up with the Gilmore Girls
"Married from nineteen seventy six until his death in nineteen ninety eight. Wow two years i mean. I'm amazed when people get divorced and they're like eighty and i just think really that makes more sense to me that like it lasted then. Even though he had so many other marriages. Yeah i suppose so. And i guess i do wonder if at that age when you get married you just know yourself so much better. I do think about how ava gardner was. Nineteen when she married. Mickey rooney and frank sinatra and nancy. I if not. We'll both. I think at least one of them was not twenty years old yet and i know younger marriage was more common back then but still that is so young to barely know yourself to try and make that decision right so Eva right before their marriage ended. She was in the barefoot. Contessa that movie. Watch that two day. Oh well. I watched it yesterday. You we talk about this til just funny. I didn't wash it. So i have to tell you a story about this plea. Maybe a ron. We'll see where this is going right away. But i didn't until the end. So i had watched documentary in but i never watched naval gardner movies so i thought well i should wash neva guard. Nosy thought okay. And i have listened to frank sinatra music so they would go but i then i remembered an episode of girls when laura lie references the barefoot contessa contest. Do so i thought oh cool. I'll kill two birds with one stone finally understand that reference. So i watched the whole movie. I can see you know where this is going. I get to the end. And i'm like okay cool. That was a good movie. It was totally. It was good. It wasn't like amazing but it was enjoying totally enjoyable to watch so not a waste of time. And i look up. That gilmore girls clip. You know what would the barefoot contessa do. You really couldn't sleep and initially. I was at a loss. How pass has the time until my one and only offspring fruit of my law into early loin fruit that she is strangled out of bed to grace me with their presence but myself. That'd be w tv fcd and it came to me in a flash. I'm gonna make waffles. What would the very city exactly twin shut up for. So then you know the barefoot. Contessa says about this woman who very similar. Ava gardner story was plucked out of obscurity. And because they heard that she was of great dancer and became this big star nothing to do with waffles. Google the barefoot contessa trying to look up the movie. And apparently there's this famous food network lady called the barefoot contessa. Who's a cook. And that's what they were talking about. At least. the movie was enjoyable otherwise. I would have been a little more disciplined while it's funny. You say that. I think if i had if i had been thinking about gilmore girls reference i might have had the same confusion. The confusion i had as i was watching. The movie was isn't there. Chef called the contessa. I did not realize einiger. Martin and barefoot contessa are one and the same person. I watched a little clip on her. Because i had found who this woman her name is. I'm gartner i'm a gardener. And it's a art gardner or garden. Yeah so so. That is confusing. Yes and asia garton gartner. She bought a restaurant. She said on the little clip by wash that she bought a rush on those already named the barefoot contessa. Oh okay so ninety she even come up with it and here she is choosing me so anyways. I resent her now. I will never watch china gardner and ever so was that but the movie. It was interesting that in the barefoot. Contessa the ava gardner. The characters she plays from the dread and after that movie ava gardner moved to madrid and she'd always wanted to well. I can't tell you at least one of her affairs while she was married to. Frank was with a professional spanish bullfighter. That's awesome the list of people that she is involved with is long. Can i tell you some of the names. We haven't talked about yet. Go for these are some of these rumors. So it's hard to confirm. But i just i think it's worth putting out there that this is talked about david niven john f. kennedy steve mcqueen robert mitchum fred macmurray at least one spanish bullfighter as we discussed. It might have been more than one and then she was also friends with fidel castro and there were rumors. She tried to woo him and she was also friends with one perron and his wife not evita because evita had already passed away but at one time she was friends with him. She hung out a lot with them. And i kid you not. Their friendship ended. When they're corgis in poodles got in a fight. Oh my i mean. I could not make this up if i tried. Oh yes apparently. Am these corgis. Her first kirke was gifted to her by frank sinatra and she kept corgis the rest of her life and apparently their dogs did not care for each other and i think mostly the owners let their dogs get out each other because they were annoyed with each other by that time now probably the truth so eva she did a few more movies than little spots here and there after she moved to dread and they were divorced but israeli just because she needed money didn't sound like she was very good with her finances and there was one movie that she was in and she shared a trailer with a new actress and new actress told a story about that. She would always bring her while not boombox her cassette player to their trailer in the mornings when they were getting ready and she would play music and she would. Sometimes play frank sinatra. She played that often. Which i feel like is a little cruel but but then she switched another other music and eva. One day said put up. Put frankie back on. An actress said that eva would cry every morning listening to frank sinatra and would ruin her makeup and they would have to redo her makeup can like talk out having feelings of regret clearly. Yeah well known of his music that album. That came out around the time they divorced was called. Are you and it's considered one of his.

"Should be mentioned. also sinatra is referenced a number of times throughout gilmore girls many of them just in passing but he is definitely a big pop culture figure in the gilmore. Girls are definitely aware of him over there. We have jazz. Jazz vocals classical country rockabilly sinatra. You should walk down the aisle to frank sinatra with a huge bouquet of something. That smells really good. I'm trying to find that settled plan mccain not too cliche sounding traditional towns with field should these standards while the sinatra melies bait and maybe skipping by the dan oliver's boat we went to see an act that everyone was raving about we go incidentally close. The door turned out to be playing musical drinking glasses. You know what the have filled cups that give off different tones. He played mozart. And i swear i could hear mozart banging on his coffin out of politeness we stayed and they're winning our of our lives next night. Sign in front of theater said the entertainment for the night was a guy singing. The songs of sinatra we verified with the guy at the door. The songs of frank sinatra right.

You are wife number four now sometimes. It's the medicine very old. That's position to be in because you'll probably be too exhausted to try and find wife number five and maybe you can wait him out. Like barbara sinatra. She just waited him out so like we said before. Taylor focused on her behalf frank sinatra and. I took on ava gardner. So i watched. I watched gardner. Life is bigger than the movies is a fifty minute documentary on a gardener on amazon prime available for you have amazon prime for free. And it's it's interesting because you know a documentary about her life but it's amazing. How much of. The documentary centered around her and frank sinatra so she like she was hired by mgm just for her beauty. She couldn't act. Did like a talked about her screen test and like she moved a vase from like here to here and like walked and they weren't too interested she was just in the background for a bunch of Movies but then after few years they kept her on just because she was so beautiful. Which i don't know yes. She liked played. The receptionist sinoe just like would answer the phone in the background and then The particularly didn't like her as an actress because of her southern accent and so she never got a speaking role because in her a screen test. Her southern accent came through really thick. And she's just nervous and so she never got speak because of that but while she was onset which was at. Gm mickey rooney who we've talked about before he was in that movie that we just can't shake a national. How does that come. I mean how was that in ronca mars i. I don't understand but he saw her and again. Apparently everyone hollywood only uses. There is and he started courting her she. She wasn't super interested but he persisted. They dated and after twenty seven marriage proposals. She said yes. So you know just much like with how things turn out with christopher and lured by if it if it took them twenty years to get her to say yes then probably now. She wants to twenty seven. Where people's frankly. For what. I know of mickey rooney. He would've lost interest before twenty years. I mean you. at least gotta give. Christopher credit keeps his interest for twenty years. Mickey rooney did not seem to be the type who would know and mickey rooney. I know i mentioned this when we talked about him. Ava gardner was actually first wife. They were married for about sixteen months and he went on to mary. One two three four five six seven other women and he didn't divorce his last wife though so but also i don't know if it's because she died i just feel like maybe that's what happened. I have written down just married. Nineteen seventy eight. Which makes me think he died before the marriage ended. Yeah well he died in two thousand fourteen. Oh wow that was really recent compared to a lot of the other people. We're going to talk about today. She might still be alive. Who his last wife. Oh wow so. I think maybe they were for you know. How long is that thirty thirty six years. Wow we well you know. We will talk more about that phenomenon. I'll tell you that marriages sticking yeah apparently so anyways so she was married to mickey rooney and again that lasted about six months. No big shocker. There she would have met frank sinatra while they were married. Pretty sure you know facts are a little. I read a story that they met on the studio lot in the commissary while they were eating lunch and frank at something like well. You're prettier than the last time i saw ya. If i'd met you i i would married you. Oh my gosh well yacht is. He had good instincts then chanson self. But it's howard hughes he's the howard hughes's it odd figure for me. I don't fully understand but he was a a dude with a lot of money and spent money on making films airplanes. I don't know he just had a bunch of money. Do you know much about. I have seen the aviator with leonardo dicaprio which even gardener. I think she's played by. Kate beckons sale in that movie. She is a figure in his life and they don't they are totally romantically involved. But they're very close. It is easy controversial opinion. I think all martin scorsese movies are too long. But there's a lot of interesting ideas in there and of course a phenomenal performance firm. Leonardo dicaprio So yeah he have a lot of money and.

There's a lot of celebrities will come in and Seth McFarland did come in and I think you remember that he because you gave out my phone number so everyone can listen to the. Message. And he would come in and he would do Frank Sinatra songs. Well, you're doing well. So McFarland. Doing Frank Sinatra. Almost as good as frank, Sinatra it was really impressive.

The nineteen forty-six of Frank Sinatra is largely regarded as one of the original concept albums which you can set the stage for influence decades artists to calm. He was connected virtually. Any celebrity you can think, of Tony, Bennett Marilyn Monroe presidents including. Reagan. Kennedy and Burt Reynolds and he really sort of. Considered. A man of the people I'm GONNA. Sure Weren Frank. Story that actually came out of our reynolds biography because burt. Reynolds talked about being in a restaurant in Los Angeles where they would play cards in the back and Franklin play Boettger. In one night, a busboy came back and tripped carrying a small tray of glasses. Few broke the manager of the restaurant came running out screaming at this kid just shoot them out and frank just kind of keeps it here open he puts his cards down and stands up he walks right up to the manager and says, how much glasses worse in the metrics Oh, they're worth you know X. amount each so frank thanks for a second. And he goes. So how much is that stack over there worth in points to a stack a glasses on the side he said Oh you know it's whatever amount. So Frank Turns for the busboy he says, go smash every single one of those losses. And everyone kind of stops for a moment. And and frank kind of puts his arm and shoulder and says, it's okay kid go break the glasses and while the best way walks over there and sheepishly starts like pushing the rack over frank pulls out a wad of bills and to start peeling off counting the amount of glasses at that point he shows the money in the restaurant managers phase and says, if I find out, you fired this kid I, will never come back here again. Also, yes oh man. I wish. I wish I could be that data Hey Sinatra. Often went to bat for the Little Guy you know their stories about him taking care I mean he was gonna I if you waited on Frank Sinatra. Knee light you you'd get hundreds of tips I mean easily. Yeah.

"That is such a great song. I love it. It's Really, I was first introduced to the song you know probably much. But My. Actual memory of being introduced to the song was my best friend's wedding. Wasn't this version specifically. They never actually played. But the the band plays it and they play like an interlude in film. I don't think they actually have the vocals or anywhere in the movie until the wedding scene Ruben I could be wrong. Well, as I said earlier, this has been done and well by many artists frank was not the I certainly won't be the last just his version and so just I think it it embodies everything that's on is and he hits the nail right on the head. When. Alex the late sixties nineteen, sixty, six, where Sinatra Assan to marry again this time at eight fifty he married at twenty one year old actress named Mia Farrow. In fact at the wedding is good friend. Dean Martin Fulton aside and said Frank I got scotch older than this kid. Comedy to last. So this union predictably did not test you know pass the test of time. Frank wanted me to quit acting and just stay home and MIA did not want to do that because she was actually wising to prominence as an actress, a nineteen, sixty eight. The starring role in Rosemary's baby for most notable solicited probably actually one of my favorite horror films of all time. I. Really Love the horror epic films like the shining and Rosemary's baby things and she tastic in it but you could actually see the change in her physicality because Can i? Can I say as far will let me get to Capitol Hill, say that their marriage did not was very rocky. From the start and Rosemary's baby was kind of the breaking point because again frank never wanted her to do the movie to begin with. So she goes a the film and it kept getting extended and extended running over schedule. So it just got to you know boiling point and then ultimately happened they'll be well I mean what's interesting is a Rosemary's baby just a look back on the film was considered a curse film. it was going to the Dakota which we all know was where while the exteriors were filmed at the Dakota, which is where John Lennon was assassinated but he served her divorce papers on set. Frank, apparently made multiple appearances onset including one to issue her papers finalizing the divorce. Yeah. And of course, you know it was directed by Roman Polanski who the next year would suffer a great loss in his life. He was mired in his own controversy which we've talked about. In our Brian Wilson episodes. So their marriage didn't even last two years. It was closed out in sixty eight with the final presentation of said divorce papers and frank did what he did. He just went back to work. You know he had chart-topping successes throughout the late sixties including strangers in the night perhaps his most notable. Bats life in nineteen, sixty, seven in the ultimate Sinatra anthem in nineteen, sixty nine, which was my way as a decade went on though his output was hindered. This one of the reasons was because people as you point out, Tj were into rock, and now we were getting into sort of counterculture sixties, movement AK, the woodstock generation in they really weren't subscribing to Sinatra stock market. Another thing that was happening was his voice starting to get worn out yet again. Due. To as one reporter, put it chronic years of abuse from cigarettes alcohol. Weird though in effect your voice. Yeah. Yeah. So I want to do the musical Cuban in a moment I'm going to table with a little bit by one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, nine, the musical. Meta, had changed and Sinatra was basically left on his own. He even said nobody's writing songs for me anymore. He was still cool by the Vegas. Standard, and was sort of the know middle-age version of what it meant to be. Cool. But now you have this up coming hippie culture which is moving against that And again, at sixty sort of closed out, Sinatra felt a bit out of place. He announced retirement in nineteen seventy one he said I'm officially retiring. That's it. I'm done but diff- retirement only lasted two years by nineteen seventy-three. He was back in the studio and here's recording again and he's trying to rehabilitate his voice in that time in Nineteen seventy-three Sinatra Meta woman who would become his fourth and final spouse and he actually met her through in mutual connection Barbara Marx Blakely was a former model Las Vegas showgirl, and if he can't get by last name was married to Zippo marks. And so Naro of course, man about the show Biz business I think he was the Kevin Bacon of his time suzy can have anybody for Frank Sinatra. So he was actually friends with both Barbara ends up and there was an understood chemistry between them but they refrained they remained friends until ultimately Barbara, left Zippo to be with Frank. That was around ninety S. I know right. And Frank was needed to say reluctant to get married but. As Barbara put in an interview later that she basically said marry. Mir on walking. So it wasn't ultimatum and they married in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six. She was forty nine at the time Frank Sinatra was sixties. There's hope for me Ginseng apples still I would say that there is yeah. So I do want to point out one thing before we do our musical interlude here that a notable guests that this wedding took a break from his campaigning and that was a former president Ronald Reagan. Reagan now. He showed up. which we figured out that rate you what was the the little piece of Trivia that you gave us TJ will shoot up in our day. Martin. Episode there were two inaugurals at which Frank Sinatra performed. We've already discussed one of them. That being. John F Kennedy's, and then at Ronald Reagan's and what's interesting to happen is he felt so burned by the Kennedy ministration that he basically switched political affiliation started backing the Republican horse when I also figure that they're they're probably had been some association along at the years since Ronald Reagan had had previously been an actor. Yes absolutely again, they knew each other through Hollywood and when it came time to endorse that the North Reagan's a candidate frank was happy to. Because again he felt so jaded by what happened with him the Kennedys. So I think it's a good time to interject another song here that sums up everything frank has gone through up until this point the ups the downs, the changes. As he says in the song, you know ride high in April shot down in May and that is from his nineteen sixty, seven classic. That's.

Doesn't he walks up to the bar and says Jack on the rocks punch in the face. That's alternative to which he did many times in Las Vegas, which is also relevant to frank 'cause we're GONNA get to that. Now understand my perspective here I said, this was a close to home episode for me because I am from the Great State of New Jersey. And in New Jersey there are two people you have to like they are responding. So springsteen and frank. Sinatra. Not Tara Reid you're okay if you don't like but Bruce and frank you half the like. Even if you don't like them, you would never say that you would say it in private you would never say in public you would just not admit it. So. I was lucky to grow up in household debt embraced Frank Sinatra? My Great Uncle Charlie. Actually introduced me to frank because when we would visit him, he would play Sinatra on vinyl. Cute. It's what I was. Convinced Twenty, four seven. It's all that ever played by Uncle Charlie's house. So I had an early exposure to this and I have to agree. I don't think we can be as cool as Frank Sinatra. However, we can look at that picture and say, okay, how do you become that? Cool. So. How do you get to that point and that's what I'm GonNa look at today. We're going to dive into the life of the man we know as the voice old blue is the chairman of the board and of course. BOGANS native son. Francis Albert Sinatra. He was born. Thirty nine years after what I'm about to tell you usually don't do a rewind here, but I think it's important to understand frank to understand his upbringing on the context of that. So we're going to rewind eighteen, seventy six. For Mel, a veil in a contract that we know so well. Yes. Wow. So yeah yesterday mirror song it. Yeah, WE'VE MAGDA REVERSE river is a river. was actually do not able to cover on this podcast. Yes. So from eighteen seventy, six to eighteen ninety, four more than seven point six million. Italian. Immigrants made their way to the US. is now here's crazy. From Eighteen, ninety, one to nineteen fifteen the Italians were the largest group to immigrate to the United States. The other two were actually Ireland and Germany. But Italy was number one with a bullet and this actually led to a burst in the italian-born populations specifically in New Jersey. In fact, this number from nineteen hundred to Nineteen Tan. Rose to seventy three thousand. American born Italians in New Jersey alone. I'll And this is, of course, the area that Sinatra grew up in places like owning city Jersey City North Bergen hoboken were densely populated and sort of separated and you had these Italian never springing up from these are numbers of immigrants that were coming over by nineteen twenty four. The Italian population was solidified is the largest foreign born group in the entire state while yes. And it was this wool that came over from Italy that included a large percentage of unskilled laborers. In fact, at of those came from southern Italy Sicily lower end of the country over eighty percent of them were entirely unskilled and half of them were completely illiterate, which means they didn't speak English, but they also couldn't even write. Italian. Awhile you these were people that were pretty hard precedent got the state just to grab whatever they could and part of this group was worse Francesco and rose semestral. Who emigrated from the province of Palermo in Nineteen Oh three and brought their family which included five. One of which was Anthony Martin. Semester. See You may be sitting here. Going will want early you telling me about these semester. Reason is the name upon arrival to the US was changed to Sinatra. So the interesting part about this is no one really knows why does happen one theory is that it was a movement at Ellis Island because even in some cases. A chain deal on the spot where even changed in error by the clerk and it just kind of kept. But it's important to note that the semestral name. was that of Frank Father Anthony Martin. Now, there's another more. Shall we say insidious reason for that and if we go over to the province of Palermo, we look at a small village called Macara afraid which was a birthplace of one known as Salvador. Lucciano. But I. Think you. Know him better by Moniker lucky I believe I'll be is one of your favorites. Figures in organized crime now yes. So lucky was born in the same village as the semester family. Luciano's lived on the same street as the semester, a family, and they both left Italy for the US and Nineteen Oh. Free. Okay. Can I just point out like through all of this like mom stuff That our cat lefty who we are convinced is the reincarnation of a mob boss who never comes in here when we're recording is now sitting with rapt attention do looks like the Godfather right now. Yeah. I feel like I should be in his lap and he's telling me. and. I bring this up to sort of address the elephant in the room I don't think you can mention Frank Sinatra without mentioning. The America. and. You. Know for me unhealthy knows this one of my passions is studying history of the Mafia. And learning about this. So to me, it was very fascinating when I saw that they came over in the same year from the same village. As we go forward, there's a lot of supporting theories that lead to the idea that lucky would Yana was sort of an ever present spectre in France life in career they as I was gonNA say they provided excellent sanitation services I don't know what About. Them as a thing that would intrigue you. Well, there's much to be intrigued about In fact, one of Sinatra's contemporaries a singer by the name of Al Martino. Many people know him best as role as Johnny Fontaine. Godfather. Zeno. In an interview with entertainment Martinez said something to the effect of paraphrase here that interaction with figures in the mob was unavoidable. We were singers we worked in nightclubs, bars, casinos we got contracts with record labels who owned all of those entities amok was the mafia, the mob, and so frank actually corroborates later in life he doesn't intervene. He says a lot of guys were around that had come out of the prohibition era and ran pretty good saloons. I worked in places that were open they said don't know they paid they came backstage. They said, hello, they offered you a drink if Saint Francis. Of. Assisi was a singer at work in saloons. He would've met the same guys at doesn't make him art in anything now this came doug inference an opera. So please them as we go forward I'm not claiming anything a lot of this has been refuted by not only Sinatra parties on both sides their biographies have conflicting views on this. So all I'm telling you what I uncovered in my research. So let's get back to of that name semester. Oh, that's just I mean. Basically,.

"Here's Rick Rubin Malcolm Glad Well Bruce Adam from Shangrila speaking with the studios architect Robbie Robertson. We had a fantastic take the other day a year. And I'm when I was telling the stories of Shangri la you know stories he envisioned this place and built it and it was unbelievable and it was mine it it you know the other guys in the band thought this was a good. Hi Dear but from big pink to. Sammy Davis Junior's house to the worcester. We made these records in not not in studios in other places where there was an atmosphere and it could be our atmosphere and ours. Sounds you know now and every thing was not on somebody else's will way of doing of somebody else's wave likes. You know you would go into the studio Rodeo. And there'd be these used to be these union guys they'd be like Oh looks like it's lunchtime or like what are you talking about lunchtime. We're we're you know we're about to do something something and and they'd be an IV. Like I I don't know this should be louder than don't touch that you know. Yeah so I don't want that I. Ah I don't WanNa do that so I said what we're going to do is we're going to make these clubhouse these workshop these studios does things that is our world and arm music are sound and whether it was true or not. I believed that that it gave it a character and a saying which it did for better or worse. What's what's interesting about? That too. Is that now. It's become more the norm. Yeah Ah that that said when you did it technologically. It was much more difficult to do like when you did it. You needed big studio equipment like today. People people can do it on their laptops so they can. It's easier to make that jump but when you did it. The infrastructure involved was not easy to pull off. It was unheard of except for Les. Paul Les Paul said. I'm going to build studio at my house and I'm GonNa Build an Echo Chamber into the side of this hill right. And he was going to do all of these things. I had an argument demint the other day with Van Morrison about being able to do this kind of thing and because he was saying I only liked the play live just with my band and I go in and we sing and they play this song and we can capture a moment. We've all done that. I know it really well. I played Ricksen music the other day. That was all like first or second takes in it. Was You know songs you've heard. Yeah sounds you've heard a lot so so anyway so van saying it's gotta be live and it's got to be governed by and that's the way it used to be in a way of being I said what about less paw. Aw He overdubbed. He made things he played on top of himself. He doubled tracked. Things invented it so so van says I know but he was magic you recorded at. Sammy Davis Junior House. Yes we made the band album. The brown album And we rented. Sammy Davis Junior House in the Hollywood sunset is at plaza in the Hollywood hills. And we all stayed in the House for the family and we turn the pool house where he used to have have his. Party's with Frank Sinatra the rat back and all these people we turn that Pool House into his studio and the record company Penny thought. This was the worst idea they ever heard. I thought this was ridiculous. He said Dr Fifteen minutes. We have the best studio in the world here. Franks not for records year right all of this stuff and I was like no no no. This is a different thing and finally finally they were like okay. Okay I guess I don't know what you're doing and it's probably going to be bad but serious June didn't show up in another another. Sammy Davis Junior. He owned he still owned the House. He didn't live there so the magic him like he lived there. Stepping in on one of your according to what the House was built lower. You go into the the bathroom in the sink was down here and it was. Everything was built to his specifications you know and and I it seemed like this is great. This is great. Sammy's world's amazing. And so we recorded the album there and then we mix it or we're going to mix the record and there's this guy in New York. Toni Mae was his name and he had mixed the is the brothers. It's your thing. Do what you WanNa they do. So it was such a great sounding record we said wow. Let's see we can get Tony Maiden Mick says and he worked with Phil Ramone and all these people are which so anyway comes in and he puts up the tapes and everything and he says These tapes are awful. I'm going to have to do a lot of work. Arcand this and I thought I don't know if I like that. So anyway. He did a mix. There was not what I wanted at all. It's not the way I heard it all so anyway we're like thanks. Tony See You know and on which songs with these these were on the band album was the night they drove old. DIXIE DOWN UP ON CRIPPLE CREEK Whispering Pines on was wrong with his mixes his mixes were a trying to make this slick and bright and end and there was a witness to it. There was a muddiness to it that that suited the music it was earthy and I I want it that right. But he didn't get the joke so that was okay so I went and mixed the album with guy another another guy at the at the the old Jerry Ragavan said factory in New York this guy of mixed the album we mixed at the guys in the band. We were all in their the in God at the way that that I wanted so we get it and then it's like okay. The guy the mastering in guy his name is Bob Ludwig. You GotTa get him to master your record. So we take the record to Bob. Ludwig and and He puts you know he puts on the tape the mixes and everything and he says Oh boy is like Toni. May He's like I don't know I'm GONNA try see if I can fix this or save this and I'm like That's really depressing. So I go on I tell the other guys I said. I don't know we might have done this all wrong. Everybody's saying it's it's terrible and that you know so the net. I don't know a couple of days later. Bob Ludwig calls me and he says I am such an an idiot. I am such a fool. I didn't get it I so get it. This is maybe be the most interesting record I've ever heard. He said I'm so sorry. And he told me Bob Ludwig he said I made the same mistake when sly stone brought me. There's a riot going on. I thought that that was a big mistake. Sue Two and he said and then I realized it you know I had to accept it the way that I accepted your record and So I was like 'cause I thought he was right hit on and if he had a state with that I don't know what would have happened. So he you you know he mastered at hardly did anything to it in in the mastering and it was just one of those things it was a homemade saying it did have that character to it and that was part of its
Pop Music's Past Is Crowding Out Its Present
"Will host Nate Wilcox and today we're joined by Simon Reynolds the author Retro Mania Pop Culture's addiction to its own past ask Simon Welcome. Thanks for having me on your podcast. It's a pleasure. This book made a big impression on me when it first came out and I'm looking forward to discussing it with you a decade after its publication or not quite a decade. I guess but Close now I can look back at the teens as well as the knots. But the fundamental argument every book which definitely jibed with. What I was feeling intuitively? was that in the beginning direction. You say I'm I'm what am imagining isn't a cataclysm. So much as a gradual wind down this is the white pop ends not with a bang but with a box set whose fourth disc never get around to plane and overprice a price ticket to the track by track. Re staging of the pixies pavement album. You play to death your first year at university if the pulse of now felt weaker with each passing year. That's because in the two thousands. The POP president became evermore crowded out by the past whether in the form of archive memories of yesteryear or retro. Rock leaching off ancient styles. So that's Kinda the thing we wanted to discuss is do you think that's still true I think everything that I write about in Richmond is still still going on Still a lot of reissuing as the festival lineups Overcrowded with people called legacy acts Either accident never a very old. Never stop playing Obama that re reunited because there is this sort of lucrative circuit now for reunion is There's a lot of younger bands who music is a kind of pastiche. Oh pick a mix of things will be all sides and beyond music as you know. TV reboot send and film franchise is based on you know quite old comic books. All beloved films from the seventies you know just endlessly get get anew the Prequel Aura. post-coup added to it So everytime I write about in the book is still going. It doesn't feel as oppressive to me. It feels like this quite a lot. More really contemporary sounding music and very digital sounding music. That feels two thousand and ten minutes. It's five so I wouldn't say I'm quite as gloomy as I was when I wrote the book but at the time writing the bogey felt we were inundated not by the past and it was this sense of. Yeah as I put it in the intro of being over the present been crowded out there. Were all these things competing for your attention and And a lot of emphasis sort of you know people dealing with these new online Al-Qods essentially repub kind of amateur amateur archives. Youtube is kind of amateur. Archive has very current. This minute kind of things in it as well but a lot of youtube content and was especially seemed to be the case in the early days of Youtube was old crap. You know that someone you know someone did a comp- you know someone's GonNa Compilation of beloved TV commercials from Nineteen Seventies UK. Kept some old pop shows as you know. Strange documentaries will never been shown since they were first ad in the in the seventies or eighties. So there it was always rich Israeli which is kind of rich as you could get lost in and That that's still going on but I feel I feel a bit more. I'm excited about music. At least I feel. There is me the fields current united feels like very now and this'll be a little bit past a ton this show airs but just yesterday. We had a controversy on twitter. Billy Irish Pretty young pop. Upswing are not knowing who van Halen was and boomer and Gen Xer van Halen fans just being a gas What did you make that you follow it out? Little Kerfluffle at all is funny on might sort of twitter feed and facebook. Everyone's like I haven't seen anyone like making fun of weather will like. Why should she know who are some of them are like old new wave? Like van Halen was shit anyway so I haven't seen anyone you know maybe moving different circles. I'm I was. I was surprised she had never heard jump. You know because that's on the radio still and it's like an old time American classic classic but Yeah why would she know. Who'd been having? I mean she probably heard and let me read the you know. The name has not stock forever reason. Yeah she's a completely different different generation. I think we probably will see tweet with someone. Says it's like someone in Van. HALEN's Day you know not knowing who Luke Benny Goodman or some sort of swing. Jazz was excise the time difference. You know that seems pretty on the money. Why would a seventeen year old when eighteen year old? Whatever she is now be aware of Finland Particularly didn't it didn't seem like You Know I. I haven't seen mcclay but I got the impression that she was kind of saying. That kind of amused self deprecating way. It wasn't like some got shallow. Shell like where you know So in quarter hour you know you say you're a musician get you've never heard of Eddie. Van Halen's legendary tap fret tapping pinged guitar technique. You know. She says she's the modern Vanhanen but she's from La I live in south South Pasadena and I think Bannon came from Pasadena. She sort of in the you know she's a modern. La Music making making music actually defunding with her brother. The van Halen had two brothers into nine and so she doing interesting new things that are very involved in the now. You know they they that success is is Is using the latest online media through a tick. Talking Elise ways kids find out things. My youngest kid is crazy into the EILLY. So you know it's it's a bright new tomorrow where Van Halen are a little footnote and wash you know. Why should they care? Yeah Yeah I took it as a good sign That your arguments not not that. I'm against your arguments with just that you worrying about in the book that the pass was right now the future and it seems like this current generation of kids who as a parent. It's it's interesting. They have such a different relationship with popular culture than we had as Gen xers a you are in Britain. I was in the states growing up but you know we were soaking and decades of reruns and old movies that were on. TV that we might have anywhere from three three to fifty channels. But still you're flipping through and you're going to see Humphrey Barton and you're gonNA see Benny Goodman. And you're going to see Frank Sinatra and kids today everything they Z.. Is Pretty much selected. And so I'm actually sort of worrying that the musical history is being lost for the new generation. But let's let's stick to the a book though and and how much different stories like for instance a often anecdotally through friends and seeing what their kids into you view is always about how a particular kid eleven ever is just crazy about the Beatles unknown and just just listen to the Beatles so I think it's all for them to discover I. I suspect what it is. Is this thing I write about in the book. kool-aid temporary where the chronology music is. All jumbled up and and on things that are very old that might pop into their world through whatever means sort of things that I'd presence and they don't necessarily have a sense of the chronology Iraq history when I was getting into music. It was a fairly simple chronology rock and roll the Beatles and the stones You Know Glam Rock Bowie Psychedelia before that and then punk and you could sort of understand is only three stages of history that you can get basic you know you can understand the paragraph Really and a few song examples but now the music history so sprawling and Dan things that have been left out of history of been readmitted you know like disco is very celebrated. Now is as an important era music and prog. Ross has been rehabilitated. Is No longer this thing that you know Pumpkin. You I've said was a complete waste land. I grew up with that idea. That was completely. You should go there. I think it's a much more complicated very sincere music history that you had to do a little bit of work if you won't understand it but people pick up on bits of music. Prep some fans will will She listened to Van Halen because of his whole this whole silly cophil full about

Although the more energetic sound of her earlier records is muted here, holiday still delivers wise and moving performances in this collection of emotional, jazz tunes, many of the songs here became synonymous with her unique sound and persona. Here's colleen. Billie holiday remains one of the greatest jazz, voices of all time and is still easily recognizable to music fans from all generations. She's got them.
