My mother had a brother They say that I was born on the day that he died Someone to cling to, she said When all the noises and the shame came calling My mother had a brother I thought I knew them all, I thought I knew But she lied I said, 'Show me his face again, tell me again why he died' She said he couldn't wait for the things that I've seen She said he wasn't strong enough, he never dared to dream a life like mine My mother had a brother Over-sensitive and kind Seems it all became too much for him.. It seems he took his own life Mum, I can't imagine the joy and pain in equal measure Tears in the dirt, and all over your newborn treasure I guess he had to wait until my momma had me I guess he couldn't wait another moment to be free In endless sky But mama will you tell him from your boy The times they changed I guess the world was getting warmer And we got stronger Mother will you tell him about my joy I live each day for him The sun came out, yeah, and I'm just breathing it in (breathing...) My mother had a brother Same desire, different time Seems the empty spaces tortured him Until he took his own life I don't know why I waited so long for love I just don't know what I was thinking of.. All that wasted time But mama will you tell him from your boy The times they changed I guess the world was getting warmer While we got stronger Mother will you tell him about my joy I live each day with him Your son came out, yeah And I'm still breathing it in And I swear now that freedom is here I'm gonna taste it all for you boy I'm bad to the bone, I'm just a little torn I'm making so much love So those of us who have nothing to fear We've got to make damn sure that it was worth it I'm bad to the bone, I'm just a little stoned I'm making so much love I was a prisoner, but he saved me Broke into my dreams and said, 'Who cares?' I was a prisoner, so disgrace me I'm glad to be home And I don't believe they care


My mother had a brotherMa mère avait un frèreThey say that I was born on the day that he diedIls disent que je suis né le jour de sa mortSomeone to cling to, she saidQuelqu'un auquel s'accrocher, disait-elleWhen all the noises and the shame came callingLorsque tous les bruits et la honte sont venus


My mother had a brotherMa mère avait un frèreI thought I knew them all, I thought I knewJe pensais que je les connaissais tous, je pensais que je savais


My mother had a brotherMa mère avait un frèreOver-sensitive and kindTrop sensible et gentilSeems it all became too much for him..Il semble que tout soit devenu de trop pour luiIt seems he took his own lifeIl semble qu'il ait pris sa propre vieMum, I can't imagine the joy and pain in equal measure'Man, je ne peux pas imaginer la joie et la douleur dans une mesure équivalenteTears in the dirt, and all over your newborn treasureLes larmes dans la poussière, et au-delà de ça ton trésor nouveau-né


My mother had a brotherMa mère avait un frèreSame desire, different timeMême désir, époque différenteSeems the empty spaces tortured himIl semble que les espaces vides le torturaientUntil he took his own lifeJusqu'à ce qu'il prenne sa propre vie


Since early beginnings in music, singers and songwriters have expressed their hearts by conveying the meaning of Mother in songs. In some songs the word Mother, Mom or Mama may be used in a metamorphic manner to convey a broad perspective through lyrics. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle []).push(); While the title of a song may have mother, mom, mama, or mommy mentioned in the title, subject matter in songs pertaining to the word differs drastically.


Expressions of love, joy, sadness, hate, guilt, reconciliation, forgiveness, and inspiration are often associated with the word mother in songs. A number of musicians have used the word mother in the title or lyrics to represent, convey or depict a broad perspective of sentiments based on life experiences. In folk and blues genres the word mother or mama has been used by bands and artists in reflective ways. Similarly a number of rock songs and pop songs have conveyed a range of emotions and expressions associated with the word.


The waves of grief can not wash away the memories I have of you, dearest brother. I would like to believe, that in another heavenly world you could be reading this but you are probably doing more important things now, such as protecting all of us in the family down here and even your closest friends whom we view as such. I have never met another soul to have been so kind to children and animals, to strangers in the night, and in every action that they set foot on this earth to do. Your smile was genuine in its proclamation of happiness and your talents went under-acknowledged. You could play any tune out of thin air and sing the lyrics in key. The top-40 list never sounded so sweet, as to when you would play it on air instruments for me.


[91]It should be said that the habit of speaking verycarefully, my mother formed early in life. Havinga brother who stammered, she was very anxiousto avoid that defect of speech. The beauty ofher voice was due to its careful training in theItalian school of singing in her youth. Doubtlessthe habit of public speaking also tended to preserveit.


In spite of all the hardships endured during theRevolutionary War, Colonel Ward lived to benearly seventy-six years of age. My mother wellremembered her grandfather with his courtlymanner and mild, but very observing, blue eyes.With the indulgence characteristic of grandparents,he permitted the Ward brothers to play cards at hishouse, a thing they were forbidden to do at home.


UPDATE (JUNE 2008):You can't believe my excitement when I received a message from Hoyt Park, a relative of the real Jim Dandy, Richard Wisniewski, telling me that Rich was still alive and well and living in the Saginaw area:'Richard grew up in Saginaw Michigan. After returning from the armed services towards the end of the Vietnam war, Richard desired to record music. Lacking the necessary money to outfit an elaborate music studio, he decided to build his own studio. He wired 2 stereo reel to reel recorders together to create a 4 track recorder, wrote the music, and then performed the music by bouncing and layering the tracks. In conjunction with his father (Conrad Wisniewski) he attempted to market the music by distributing 45 rpms across the country.But success was not to be had during the 70s, so Richard made the decision to attend a local university and achieved 2 degrees in Electrical engineering and Physics. He then worked within the defense industry for several years, eventually retiring in the 90s. Richard's father Conrad, known as Dadjo, passed away last November. Dadjo spent a major portion of his life as a professional musician within the Saginaw area.'I then received a long message from Rich himself who revealed that he made the Jim Dandy records at the family home with help from his dad (Dadjo) and his mum (Alpha/Patsy) and he included a lot of extensive technical information on how it was done:'I used to record under the stage name of Jim Dandy and the Sugar Beats. My real name is Richard Wisniewski. Dadjo was my father, and Alpha was my mother. She grew pickles in her vegetable garden, so she called herself "Patsy's Pickle Patch Choir." My parents were professional musicians. They used to play at night clubs, weddings and parties. They were the Connie Radd Band. Both parents died. My brother and I used to play in our own band. We called ourselves "The Stardusters."One day Dadjo said, "Write a song like 'Let It Be' ." So I did. I wrote "From Dust To Dust.". I played all the instruments and sang. Alpha sang backup choir - three part harmony. That record was released in 1972. We received radio airplay on various stations in the United States, but no hit. We also sent records to Europe. We released three singles. No albums.In 1970 Dadjo came up with the idea of making records. It was his idea to put two stereo tape recorders together and make it into a four track. His idea, but I did it. I mounted a stereo head in front of the other stereo head, thereby changing the machine into a 4-tracker. The two stereo heads are staggered, so the tape can only be played back on that machine.Dadjo was the idea guy, and I was the technical guy. I majored in electronics at Arthur Hill Technical High School in Saginaw, Michigan. That school was torn down in 1974, and a McDonald's Restaurant was built on the property. I worked for a couple years as an Electronic Development Technician in R&D. I am a former ham radio operator. I used to send Morse Code over the ham bands. I also had a phone license. So I have plenty of technical skill.Later I went to college. I have two college degrees. A Bachelor of Science in Physics and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. I have a minor in Mathematics. Physics is my passion. Albert Einstein is my hero. I started taking piano lessons at age 4 and a half. I took piano lessons for 10 years, accordion lessons for one year. At age ten I did an impersonation of Liberace on a local television station. For that performance, I dressed up in a tuxedo and had a candelabra. Then I recited a monologue in front of the TV camera and played boogie-woogie on the piano.I played piano for two years in the junior high orchestra. Then I began playing professional at age 14. Later on, I was a musician in the United States Navy Bands. Our Navy Band recorded an album of march music in Los Angeles, California. The recruits are probably still marching to that record today. I played the glockenspiel on that record. It is very noticeable, because I used to adlib most of my parts.In the navy, sometimes I performed on stage as Uncle Wizz. For that act, I played the accordion, blew a whistle, shook a tambourine tied to my leg, blew a trumpet, and sang. Then I told a few jokes. The children loved me. But I don't know about the adults. I guess they thought I was OK. The guys in the band liked me. In the navy band I played piano, accordion, glockenspiel, xylophone, chimes, bells, cymbals, and bass drum. We put on concerts, marched in parades, and played at schools. We also played dance band music.When Alpha recorded her three-part harmony, I recorded it on my homemade 4-track tape recorder. To transfer those three tracks to a single track, I used another tape recorder. With my fingers, I touched the reels, speeding them up and slowing them down until the two machines were in synch. Then I turned up the volume control for the choir. When the choir finished singing, I turned down the volume. Then with my fingers, I touched the reels again, to bring both machines back into synch. Then I turned up the volume control for the choir. Repeating this process, I was able to put the choir on one track. To perform the trick of synchronization, I was listening to the 4-track machine in my left ear and the stereo machine in my right ear. With two ears, I was able to synchronize both tape recorders. It was not perfect synchronization; but it was good enough for the choir, since the choir did not sing all the time. Then once I had the three-part choir mixed down to one track, I put that tape on my 4-tracker and continued adding other instruments. Bouncing instruments from one track to another.To record from one track to another on the same machine, I built a special filter box that was tunable. With that filter, I tuned out the internal feedback frequency that would cause the tape recorder to break into oscillation.For my echo, I used an Echoplex which I modified electronically. I also used a spring echo. I built many mixing boxes. I diagrammed my bass compressor, and modified the circuitry to let more high frequencies come through.The tape recorders had non-synchronous motors. To correct this speed problem, I recorded a tuning fork for one minute. Then I adjusted the tape speed with a variable voltage transformer, zero beating with the tuning fork. Using this process, I was able to get the music back on pitch.I always wrote out a plan of how to record a song, showing all the recording steps. The plan showed which tracks to record on, and which tracks to re-record on. In that way, I was able to combine instruments together on the same track. For example, I always put the drums and piano on the same track. First I recorded a synch track, then recorded the drums. Then I re-recorded the drums on track 2 while I played the piano on track 2. So the drums and piano were on track 2.When I recorded "From Dust To Dust" down to the final mix machine, Alpha turned the tape reel with her hand - while the machine was running. This reduced mechanical flutter. She also operated a volume control with her other hand. Meanwhile, I played the Clavinet and organ (on an accordion) while she was doing that. Then after the song was over, I faded out the volume.Some day I would like to remix that song on my computer. Thereby improving the quality and add a stereo echo. But I don't have time now. I am very busy. I am writing a book on Intelligent Design.Rich'I later contacted Rich again and asked if he had a photo of himself from the time of the Jim Dandy recordings ad he kindly sent one [see below]. Rich is the young guy with the short hair and glasses while Dadjo is in the background with long hair. This is the photograph they used for publicity purposes at the time although Rich has colorized it in Photoshop. I also asked him if he had any other Jim Dandy recordings (apart from the six sides on record). Sadly not, although he did send a cleaned up version of From Dust To Dust and told me about his musical influences and some details about the family home where the recordings were made:'Attached is a photo of me and Dadjo. The picture was taken in 1971. Dadjo is on the left, and I am on the right. We were in our living room. That's where we did our recording.We put white fiberglass boards on the walls and ceiling to absorb the sound. Then we put a mattress in the doorway to get rid of echo from the adjoining room. On the left is a door with a plexy-glass window. Behind that door is our control room with recording equipment. The room used to be a bedroom. Alpha built shelves where I keep parts, tapes and electronic boxes. The grand piano is in the background.Back then there were many songs that I liked. As a teenager--and also in my 20's-- I used to buy a lot of records. I always bought records that were the latest and greatest. I would buy anything that was hot. I frequently would walk into a record store and buy 40 records. Then I would listen to them. Some songs I would memorize and learn the lyrics.Songs and musicians that I liked: "Let Your Yeah Be Yeah" (Brownsville Station), "Come And Get It" (Badfinger), "Joy To The World" (Three Dog Night), "The Loco-motion" (Grand Funk), "Christine Sixteen" (KISS), "Saturday Night" (Bay City Rollers), "Eight Days A Week" (The Beatles), "Satisfaction" (The Rolling Stones), "Let It Be" (The Beatles), "Come Together" (Ike and Tina Turner), "Proud Mary" (Creedence Clearwater Revival), "The Twist" (Chubby Checker), "Mother-In-Law" (Ernie K-Doe), "Mr. Tambourine Man" (The Byrds), "California Dreamin" (Mammas and Pappas), "Monster Mash" (Bobby Boris Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers), "Wooly Bully" (Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs), "Shop Around" (Smokey Robinson and the Miracles), "Oh, Pretty Woman" (Roy Orbison), "Hanky Panky" (Shondells), "Tossin and Turnin" (Bobby Lewis), "Turn-Turn-Turn" (The Byrds), "Hully Gully" (The Olympics), "Instant Karma" (John Ono Lennon), "Love Grows" (Edison Lighthouse), "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (The Shirelles), "I've Told Ev'ry Little Star" (Linda Scott), "Can't Help Falling In Love" (Elvis Presley), "Josephine" (Fats Domino), "Too Young" (Donny Osmond), "Quarter To Three" (Gary U.S. Bonds), "Which Way You Goin Billy?" (The Poppy Family). Those are some of my favorites.In Junior High I was a DJ at the school dances. So I liked a lot of songs. I was also on the P.A. Crew. I was a stage hand. I operated the spotlight, stage lights, curtain, sound system, and movie projector. It was a carbon-arc projector. The light was produced by passing a high voltage between two carbon rods.When we made records, we sent them to radio stations all across the United States. We also sent records to Europe. I don't remember where we sent them. I think it was England and Germany. We must have sent them to radio stations, hoping for airplay.Rich'
