Το ποτάμι



Όλα ανεβοκατεβαίνουν 
όλα πάνε και γυρίζουν 
ένα μόνο δε γυρίζει 
το ποτάμι, το ποτάμι!

 Όλα χάνουν τη λαλιά τους 
όλα κάποτε σωπαίνουν
 ένα μόνο δε σωπαίνει 
το ποτάμι, το ποτάμι!

 Όλα πάνε και γυρίζουν
 όλα κάποτε σωπαίνουν 
ένα μόνο δε γυρίζει 
ένα μόνο δε σωπαίνει
το ποτάμι, το ποτάμι!




Betty came by on her way
Said she had a word to say
About things today
And fallen leaves.
Said she hadn't heard the news
Hadn't had the time to choose
A way to lose
But she believes.
Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the plan
For lilac time.
If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
And all night shows
In summertime.
Betty said she prayed today
For the sky to blow away
Or maybe stay
She wasn't sure.
For when she thought of summer rain
Calling for her mind again
She lost the pain
And stayed for more.
Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the ban
On feeling free.
If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
I don't suppose
It's meant for me.
Oh, how they come and go
Oh, how they come and go.


Please believe me
The river told me
Very softly
Want you to hold me, ooo

Free fall flow, river flow
On and on it goes
Breath under water 'till the end
Free fall flow, river flow
On and on it goes
Breath under water 'till the end
Yes, the river knows

Please believe me
If you don't need me
I'm going, but I need a little time
I promised I would drown myself in mystic heated wine

Please believe me
The river told me
Very softly
Want you to hold me, ooo

I'm going, but I need a little time
I promised I would drown myself in mystic heated wine

Free fall flow, river flow
On and on it goes
Breath under water 'till the end
Free fall flow, river flow
On and on it goes
Breath under water 'till the end



"Down By The River" is a song composed by Neil Young.
Young explained the context of the story in the liner notes of his 1977 anthology album Decade, stating that he wrote "Down By The River", "Cinnamon Girl" and "Cowgirl In The Sand" while delirious in bed in Topanga Canyon with a 103 °F (39 °C) fever.
The lyrics are apparently about someone who kills his lover by shooting her.
The reason he gives for the killing is that she takes him to emotional heights from which he cannot bear to go on. Young has provided multiple explanations for the lyrics. In an interview with Robert Greenfield in 1970 Young claimed that "there's no real murder in it.
It's about blowing your thing with a chick.
It's a plea, a desperate cry." Introducing the song in New Orleans on September 27, 1984 Young claimed that it depicts a man "who had a lot of trouble controlling himself" who catches his woman cheating on him, then meets her down by the river and shoots her.
A few hours later the sheriff comes to his house and arrests him.


Be on my side,
I'll be on your side,
baby
There is no reason
for you to hide
It's so hard for me
staying here all alone
When you could be
taking me for a ride.

Yeah, she could drag me
over the rainbow,
send me away
Down by the river
I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, oh, shot her dead.

You take my hand,
I'll take your hand
Together we may get away
This much madness
is too much sorrow
It's impossible
to make it today.

Yeah, she could drag me
over the rainbow,
send me away
Down by the river
I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, oh, shot her dead.

Be on my side,
I'll be on your side,
baby
There is no reason
for you to hide
It's so hard for me
staying here all alone
When you could be
taking me for a ride.

Yeah, she could drag me
over the rainbow,
send me away
Down by the river
I shot my baby
Down by the river,
Dead, oh, shot her dead.




The river flows, it flows to the sea
Wherever that river goes that's where I want to be
Flow river flow, let your waters wash down
Take me from this road to some other town
All he wanted was to be free
And that's the way it turned out to be
Flow river flow, let your waters wash down
Take me from this road to some other town
Flow river flow, past the shady trees
Go river go, go to the sea
Flow to the sea
The river flows, it flows to the sea
Wherever it goes that's where I want to be
Flow river flow, let your waters wash down
Take me from this road to some other town

The Last Session of A Poet ..Gil Scott-Heron, Dies aged 62


Poet, musician, activist, author, bluesologist. These are all terms that have been used to describe the great Gil Scott-Heron, who more humbly refers to himself simply as a “piano player from Tennessee”. Most famous for his era-defining 1970′s poem, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” Gil Scott-Heron’s politically charged material made him a stalwart figure in the 1970′s civil rights movement. His lyrical content covered topics like the superficiality of television and mass consumerism, the hypocrisy of some would-be Black revolutionaries and white middle-class ignorance of the difficulties faced by inner-city residents. Not only a pioneer of blues, jazz and funk, his honesty, matter-of-fact delivery and fearlessness to address important social issues in the face of media criticism made him one of the foremost progenitors of contemporary hip-hop and spoken word..

Απεβίωσε χθες, από άγνωστη μέχρι στιγμής αιτία, στην Νέα Υόρκη σε ηλικία 62 ετών ο σπουδαίος αμερικάνικος συγγραφέας, ποιητής, μουσικός & spoken word artist Gill Scott Heron.
Ο Gill Scott-Heron γεννήθηκε την 1η Απρίλη του 1949 στο Σικάγο αλλά μεγάλωσε στο Tennessee και αργότερα στην Νέα Υόρκη και πήγε κολλέγιο στην Πενσυλβάνια. Σε ηλικία των 13 ετών ξεκίνησε γράφοντας ποιήματα ενω το 1970 κυκλοφόρησε το πρώτο του μυθιστόρημα με τιτλο The Vulture.

Την ίδια χρονιά κυκλοφορήσε και το πρώτο του άλμπουμ Small Talk At 125th And Lennox (που μοιράζεται τον τίτλο με μια από τις ποιητικές συλλογές του) που περιλαμβάνει την πρωτη ηχογράφηση του εμβληματικού ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised‘.



Συνέχισε να ηχογραφεί στην διάρκεια των 70s -αρχικά υπό την επίβλεψη του jazz παραγωγού Bob Thiele και από το Winter In America του 1974 (που περιέχει ένα από τα επίσης πιο αναγνωρίσιμα τραγούδια του, ’The Bottle’) και έπειτα με τον πιανίστα και παραγωγό Brian Jackson- σημαντικότατα spoken word albums, με jazz επιρροές μουσικά και γεμάτα οξεία πολιτική και κοινωνική κριτική στιχουργικά, -που θεωρούνται πλέον ως βασικός σταθμος για την εξέλιξη της Rap μουσικής και όχι μόνο.


Ο Gil Scott-Heron συνέχισε να ηχογραφεί, να γράφει βιβλία και να εμφανίζεται σε συναυλίες σποραδικά στις δεκαετίες του 1980 και 1990 με μεγάλα διαστήματα απραξίας όμως λόγω του εθισμού του στα ναρκωτικά και τα προβλήματα με τον νόμο.



Η επίστροφή του το 2010 μετά από 16 ολοκληρα χρόνια με το άλμπουμ I’m New Here στην XL Recordings ..

..έμελλε να ειναι και η τελευταία ...



κι ύστερα δρασκέλισε απο τα δεσμά του και πέταξε στους ουρανούς !

και το συνοδευτικό φετεινό remix album We ‘re New Here σε συνεργασία με τον βρετανό μουσικό και παραγωγό Jamie XX (βλ. The XX) έγινε δεκτή με μεγάλο ενθουσιασμό από κοινό και κριτικούς και τον έκανε ξανά γνωστό σε ένα πολύ νεώτερο κοινό. Source






Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1960s and early 1970s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson.



His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron.



The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul.



Scott-Heron’s recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”.



On his influence, Allmusic wrote “Scott-Heron’s unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists”.




Profiles
New York Is Killing Me
The unlikely survival of Gil Scott-Heron.

by Alec Wilkinson
August 9, 2010



Sometimes when I spoke to people who used to know Scott-Heron, they told me that they preferred to remember him as he had been. They meant before he had begun avidly smoking crack, which is a withering drug. As a young man, he had a long, narrow, slightly curved face, which seemed framed by hair that bloomed above his forehead like a hedge. The expression in his eyes was baleful, aloof, and slightly suspicious.


He was thin then, but now he seems strung together from wires and sinews—he looks like bones wearing clothes. He is bald on top, and his hair, which is like cotton candy, sticks out in several directions. His cheeks are sunken and deeply lined.

Dismayed by his appearance, he doesn’t like to look in mirrors. He likes to sit on the floor, with his legs crossed and his propane torch within reach, his cigarettes and something to drink or eat beside him. Nearly his entire diet consists of fruit and juice. Crack makes a user anxious and uncomfortable and, trying to relieve the tension, Scott-Heron would sometimes lean to one side or reach one hand across himself to grab his opposite ankle, then perhaps lean an elbow on one knee, then maybe press the soles of his feet together, so that he looked like a swami.
