about

15/25 ~ A smooth-talking fast girl, a Bordeaux queen. Drink your Bordeaux my love or have a glow on sharing my bottle of Jameson’s .. your wine is safe in all respects. Trust me. “Where’s the hand claps and gospel choir” you ask? Good question .. they're coming. Along with a solo section for the intro and that funny “out of the blue” C-D progression. There are song notes being chiseled on the tablets. Akin to commandments of some sort. Mention the word revival and the angels get all hot and bothered. Lord mercy. I appreciate architecture. Love the building of the foundation. A grail for the song. I wanted this one to be a reflection. A bit of my past. So you'd know. The early days. Roller rinks and house parties. The joy of rockroll. Bass guitar through an old Traynor head and cab. Chuck Berry was rock & roll. The Yardbirds were rockroll. An analogy just for me. No need for anyone to get their knickers in a twist. Those shiny imports. It's got me wondering .. will the horn section arrive? Held up in traffic? For now it may be waiting on one little, two little .. much love, hugs & mixes .. xoRJ

lyrics

One little, two little mickeys of Gin
Tucked in my boots and I’m sneakin’ ‘em in
My friend Julie .. her boyfriend Jack
Invited me down past the railroad tracks
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Stan .. he got a snare, a kick and a hat
A nasty ol’ demeanour he got from his dad
Stevie got a bass he bought at a pawn
And a second-hand amp from a neighbour named John
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Well, the rockroll tunes are fast and tight
Down by the riverside
Gonna shake, gonna rattle .. roll all night
Down by the riverside
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Slim knows a girl .. her name’s Irene
Smooth talker, fast girl - a Bordeaux Queen
She’s got a couple girlfriends she’s bringing along
A little razzle dazzle and the beat goes on
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Well, the rockroll tunes are fast and tight
Down by the riverside
Gonna shake, gonna rattle .. roll all night
Down by the riverside
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight
Woo yeah -

One little, two little mickeys of Gin
Tucked in my boots and I’m sneakin’ ‘em in
My friend Julie .. her boyfriend Jack
Invited me down past the railroad tracks
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Well, the rockroll tunes are fast and tight
Down by the riverside
Gonna shake, gonna rattle .. roll all night
Down by the riverside
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight
Woo yeah -

Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight
Woo yeah -

about

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
