Now, to my teaser.

 

Jackson was written by Billy Edd Wheeler and Jerry Lieber, in 1963.  The song is a duet between a husband and wife, whose marriage has lost its fire and spark.  He keeps threatening to pack up, and go into Jackson, while she laughs at that notion, and his over-blown ego.

 

Which Jackson?  There is one in Mississippi, and another in Tennessee.  Neither, or either, according to Wheeler,

 

I just liked the sharp consonant sound, as opposed to soft-sounding words like Nashville.

 

Two versions of the song were released again in 1967, one by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, which climbed as high as #14 on the charts.  The other (and much better version, in my opinion) was by Johnny Cash and June Carter.  It was a huge Country hit, rising as high as #2 on the Country charts.

 

At one point, the wife sings that the folks in Jackson will simply laugh at her man,

 

 

They'll lead you around town like a scalded hound with your tail tucked between your legs

All the while, she'll be there, in Jackson, watching his humiliation, laughing at him, hidden

 

 

behind my Jay-Pan Plan

 

This one drove me crazy.  I listened carefully to both versions, and both Nancy Sinatra and June Carter clearly sing out Jay-Pan Plan.  What is that?

 

The lyric sites have this, not as Plan, but Fan.  OK, Jay-Pan Fan.  Still no clue. 

 

Finally, after lots more research, I found the answer.  She will be hiding behind a little ornamental hand-held fan, an ornamental Japanese fan.  Aha! 

 

     Jay-Pan Plan

 

is Country twang for

 

     Japan fan.

Drums are by AJFOne23.

 

 

Late in his career, Johnny Cash embarked on a series of records, called the American recordings.  In these, he did stripped down covers of old songs, featuring the simplicity of his voice and his guitar.  Most tracks involve little other accompaniment, perhaps a second guitar, or a piano. 

 

We already have one of these in our database, Hurt, a C3 release from 2013:

Get it, if you don't already have a copy. 

 

Here are two more:

One is an old U2 tune, while Personal Jesus was originally done by Depeche Mode.

 

Great songs, both, and superb works by the legend, Johnny Cash.

 

I started out this month looking at Nancy Sinatra songs, with several in mind, but veered to Johnny Cash, when it came to Jackson.  So poor Nancy got slighted.  I'll finish off the month with one of her songs,

This is a pretty stupid song, but it is so damned catchy.  I hate myself for liking the song, but ...

Thanks Bsbloom! The man in black gets some much needed RB3 love!

Hey, was Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots (Are Made for Walking)" available earlier today or was that just my imagination? What happened and will it be available at a later date?

Asking for my wife, because Housequake loves that song.

Tell Housequake it is on the way.  I did a version, but, as it turns out, someone else had already finished one for the C3thon.  It will appear soon.

Let me thank you publicly for holding off on this release, we really appreciate it a lot. :)

Happy New Year.

 

I had four customs ready to upload, but can't get things to work.  My computer crashed, and I lost (temporarily, I hope), all my data.  Tried to copy the cons from my xbox back to my laptop, and upload.  Unfortunately, one of them would not load, and a second had absolutely horrible sounding audio in the Visualizer preview. 

 

Something seems off.  I guess I'll wait until things get fixed before posting.  So, only one, which I did on my laptop, after the crash.

I'll be back, but it may take a while.

Many thanks for the Yes track. Sorry to hear about the laptop. I hope your New year has been improving since then.
