Chance Meeting
Friday January 21st, 2022 with Heavy Ben
Coversions IV: covers | versions | edits | dubs | remixes

Chance Meeting on ratio of a DJ and a bunch The first piece of today's program is from @0, "a compilation of ambient music for positive mental health" curated and mixed by Matt Black from UK electronic outfit Coldcut. @0 refers to that liminal state experienced many times where my mental and emotional stability was not solid and it felt like teetering on a zero axis about to fall into depression, or more rarely, mania. I found that ambient music, by making no psychic demands, often opened some space and with its soft fascination, subtly raised the energy, helping to avoid that downward spiral and navigate slowly up and out. @0 is a balance point.

Yeah I love that Rocket USA by Loop, who have several other great covers in their arsenal. Will do a deep dive on Loop and their off-shoots for an upcoming program.

As a mega Hendrix fan, must say, Hey Joe is not a Hendrix tune. Dates back the the 50s I think. Although Hendrix (prob) has the best know version, was on the charts before he recorded it!

(Nice with the Give Me The Night cover!)

100% Chris. The Jimi ref was that the French version by Tony Roman and Nanette Workman seemed directly borrowed from the Hendrix version. Had a similar dilemma on a previous show when crediting the original version of Sea Lion Woman, or See-Line Woman, or See Lyin' Woman. Nina Simone popularized it, but did not write it.
