Bay Area composers

Charles Amirkhanian hosts a program featuring the music of three Bay Area composers, two of which join him in the studio to discuss their works. Maggi Payne and Bob Gonsalves are both graduates of the Master’s Degree program at Mills College in Electronic and Recorded Media from the Center for Contemporary Music. Payne, who could not make it to the KPFA studios due to illness, was at the time of this recording, director of the recording studio at the Center, and was serving as an engineer for recording sessions which were available to the public for a nominal charge.

Her expertise in the studio is highlighted with a selection of pristine tape pieces that Amirkhanian plays in her absence. Herb Bielawa was director of the electronic music studio at San Francisco State University as well as the founder of the Pro Musica Nova ensemble. The participants discuss their interests in the electronic music field and introduce their own compositions.

She Never Will Marry

“She Never Will Marry” is an adaptation of some very old ballads.


As I was walking along the seashore,

Where the breeze it blew cool, and the billows did round,

Where the wind and the waves and the waters run

I heard a shrill voice make a sorrowful sound.


Crying, O my love’s gone, whom I do adore,

He’s gone and I will never see him more.

I tarried awhile still listening near,

And heard her complain for the loss of her dear;

Which grieved me sadly to hear her complain

Crying, he is gone and I will never see him again.

She appeared like some goddess, and dressed like a queen,

She’s the fairest of creatures that ever was seen.

I told her I’d marry her myself, if she pleas’d,

But the answer she made me, was my love is in the seas.

I never will marry nor be any man’s bride,

I choose to live single, all the days of my life,

For the loss of my sailor I deeply deplore,

As he’s lost in the seas I shall ne’er see him more.

I will go down to my dearest that lies in the deep

And with kind embraces I will him intreat,

I will kiss his cold lips like the coral so red,

I will close up his eyes that have been so long dead.

The shells of the oysters shall be my lover’s bed,

And the shrimps of the sea shall swim over his head,

Then she plunged her fair body right into the deep,

And closed her fair eyes in the water to sleep.


[G] They say that [D] love’s a [G] gentle thing

But it’s [C] only [D] brought her [G] pain

For the [C] only [D] man she [G] ever [Em] loved

Has [Am] gone on the [D] midnight [G] train

She never will [D] marry

She’ll be no man’s [C] wife

She expect to live [G] single

All the [D] days of her [G] life

Well the train pulled out

The whistle blew

With a long and a lonesome moan

He’s gone he’s gone

Like the morning dew

And left her all alone

She never will marry

She’ll be no man’s wife

She expect to live single

All the days of her life

Well there’s many a change in the winter wind

And a change in the clouds and Byrds

There’s many a change in a young man’s heart

But never a change in hers

She never will marry

She’ll be no man’s wife

She expect to live single

All the days of her life

Fallen ones

Now that we have (almost) lost the 2400 Fulton mailing list we should take our hats off for the fallen ones;

The Main Crew

Papa John Creach - Skip Spence - Spencer Dryden


Johnny Blasi - Jamie Bayer - Jeff Bayer - Terry Hook - Jeff Wells - Marshall Homes - Brad Sheargold

and most of all

Jess Grimes

one his very last posts was somewhat personal - I want to share it with you - this can be found from the Netspace archives;

My father has always said that, when I was born, he offerred
me to God. It reminds me of the story of Hannah and young
Samuel which is found the the Book of First Samuel.

I'm not sure what I might have known at birth. But I am very
sure that I was known.


And this one goes to Marshall Homes - play your heavenly Ric, dear Marshall!

BETTYE LaVETTE - Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook

Bettye LaVette brings the British Invasion home to its American R&B roots on Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook. Produced by Bettye, Rob Mathes and Michael Stevens, the album is a 13 song journey through compositions by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd among others, concluding right where the very idea for Interpretations started: Bettye s visceral rendition of The Who s Love Reign O er Me from the 2008 Kennedy Center Honors, which appears here as a bonus track. That performance which first brought Bettye together with Stevens (the event s producer) and Mathes (its musical director) showcased for a national television audience what her devoted fanbase already knew: Bettye LaVette is without parallel as an interpreter of popular song. The success of this performance lead to another astonishing moment on the national stage, her duet of Sam Cooke s Change Is Gonna Come with Jon Bon Jovi at the Obama Inaugural Concert.

Now comes Bettye LaVette s first release since those extraordinary performances. Finding new excited fans at her shows, Bettye decided to explore more of the repertoire that had brought her all this attention. From the wistful naiveté of The Moody Blues Nights in White Satin, which Bettye matures into a deep and unshakeable lament, to the funky workout of Ringo Starr s It Don t Come Easy, Bettye inhabits these songs, revitalizes them and exposes the humanity that makes these 13 tracks not just pop songs, but enduring works of art. - amazon.com
