Roy Orbison 2

Posted by Podmaster On October - 20 - 2008

Dave Marsh recounts Roy Orbison’s journey and success as a songwriter and vocalist.  Big hits such as “Only the Lonely”, “Crying”, and “Sweet Dreams” have shaped Orbison’s popular and influential songwriting and singing style. 

Roy Orbison worked with his longtime producer, Fred Foster, with these renowned hits.  Fred Foster particularly comments on the storyline of  “Only the Lonely” and why  “Sweet Dreams” was written and produced. 

Bruce Springsteen comments on Orbison’s natural ability to write lyrical and soul touching ballads.  Springsteen declares that “Crying” is a sophisticated work that “holds an adult’s emotion, but still has an operatic quality of young people’s emotions.”

Paul English fills us in the the third True Outlaw Story from Willie Nelson’s classic song “Me and Paul.”   He takes us back to Buffalo for a “package show with Kitty Wells and Charley Pride.”   This one involves a lot of whiskey, Charley Pride’s guitar and a black leather hat.

Willie Nelson’s True Outlaw Stories 13

Posted by Podmaster On September - 5 - 2008

Paul English continues his breakdown of the True Outlaw Stories Willie details in “Me and Paul.”  Paul takes us back to the “airport in Milwaukee,” about which Willie wrote that they refused to let them board because they looked suspicious.  It’s one of those stories that remind you why the airport security stations have signs like this one…

Willie Nelson’s True Outlaw Stories 12

Posted by Podmaster On September - 2 - 2008

One Willie’s best songs about True Outlaw life is “Me and Paul,” detailing his many misadventures with drummer Paul English (not Paul Chuffo, who produced this podcast series).  The song is a great example of Willie’s gift as a lyricist. One of his most humorous works, it’s also a touching sensitive tale of the bond between two longtime friends.  No wonder they play it at every show.

Paul English loves it because it’s all true. In this episode, Paul spills the beans on what really happened in Laredo that Willie would “rather not disclose.”
