Synchronicity is the key to Sun Flights’ music, patterns of rhythms and words wrapped around harmony. Ideas stretched thin and then condensed. Timing. Something about the way we come together. Something about the way we fall apart.
Sun Flights’ music is conscious poetry, stories which permeate the structures of every song. These dynamic compositions give color to sonic vistas, space to explore the age old questions. Ultimately asking, what can songs say that we can’t?
Since The Seldom Scene recorded a screamin’ hot bluegrass version of
this song, based somewhat on The Grateful Dead’s version, I guess you
could call Judy Roderick’s recording a pre-bluegrass, post-rock take on it.
I’ll let the uploader explain:
“Judy Roderick played this song before the Dead or Hot Tuna. She
followed the original version of the song, found by the Lomaxes in 1934
from an 18 year old girl in prison for murder. It was called ‘Woman
Blue’ or ‘Woman Blues’ & sung by women. This is from her 1965 album Woman Blue.”
Whatever you call it, it’s absolutely bone-chilling.
In their July 1971 issue, Playboy reported back on two models featured in previous issues who were delighting in moderate fame. One of the talented beauties was Paula Kelly, whose atheltic and flexible figure appeared in a 1969 pictorial dedicated to her musical history. After perfecting her vocal ability at Manhattan’s High School of music and art, the slender actress attended Juliard where she switched her major to “dance”. Deservingly finding success in broadway and road-show musicals, Paula began to branch out to the small and large screens, and could be found in sci-fi classics such as The Andromeda Strain and Soylent Green
