I’m sinking slowly. So hurry, hold me. Your hand is all I have to keep me hanging on. So lonely inside, so busy out there. And all you wanted was somebody who cares.

Sun Flights “Stories”

Live @ Bourbon & Branch in Philadelphia
Recorded and Mixed by Jeff Sarafinas
Video by Bob Sweeney

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?

Claire Duncombe, Vocals
Natalie Butts, Vocals & Guitar
Jake Hager, Guitar
Tim Leslie, Percussion

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.

Throwback to teenage years. Music was so much better back then!

Singing this from the heart now.

… No matter how painful it is.

Of all the things I’ve believed in
I just want to get it over with
Tears form behind my eyes
But I do not cry
Counting the days that pass me by

I’ve been searching deep down in my soul
Words that I’m hearing are starting to get old
It feels like I’m starting all over again
The last three years were just pretend
And I said,

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

I still get lost in your eyes
And it seems that I can’t live a day without you
Closing my eyes and you chase my thoughts away
To a place where I am blinded by the light
But it’s not right

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

And it hurts to want everything and nothing at the same time
I want what’s yours and I want what’s mine
I want you
But I’m not giving in this time

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

And when the stars fall
I will lie awake
You’re my shooting star

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
