Adventures in Talking to Yourself
« on: November 05, 2020, 07:29:53 PM »
John's post about Wesley Wallace/Sylvester Palmer today

made me think it might be fun to have a thread with our favorite tunes and songs where a performer is clearly (or perhaps arguably) having a conversation with themselves.

There are quite a few, and perhaps limit your responses to a couple so that more folks can participate. I put this in the lyrics forum since it's about words, but please move if it'd be better elsewhere!

This one might be my favorite, conversationally speaking.

Hi all,
This one isn't exactly as Chris spoke of, for it's not the performer himself who does two voices, but rather his dictatorial blowhard fan, who extols Pine Top's playing as long as he sticks to blues, and who also voices the passing female fan. The song: Pine Top Smith's "I'm Sober Now", a presentation of one musician's life as a performer. Man, could Pine Top play! This has been transcribed elsewhere on the site already, but if you've not heard it before, it's a treat.

All best,

Online Harry

Also maybe not exactly what Chris meant.

Stunning piano and I think Ivy Smith on the vocals if I remember correctly.
I think Albert Ammons picked up that ascending bass line from Davenport and utilized it in his boogie rage "Bass Goin Crazy".

Patton seems to be talking to himself. Not sure what he's saying...
