night train

“He’s falling asleep… what do I do? What do I do, what do I do…”

ESCAPE TONIGHT

ALONE WITH A DREAM OR TWO…
EXHAUSTED MIND IN UNREST…
NO LOVE GIVEN IN A LONG TIME…
A JOURNEY WITH NO END…
NIGHT TRAIN’S RESTLESS POUNDING IN MY BRAIN…
ESCAPE TONIGHT, ANOTHER ADVENTURE LIES ON MY WAY…
ANOTHER JOURNEY WITH NO END…
CONDITION UNEVEN LIKE
THE FROSTBITE’S GRIM COLD GRIP OUTSIDE….

On this day in music history: May 7, 1991 - “Star Time” by James Brown is released. Compilation produced by Harry Weinger, Cliff White, Oscar A. Yong and Bill Levenson. The seventy one track, four CD box set is the first major compilation to feature Brown’s seminal King and Polydor Records catalog. Spanning the years 1956 to 1984, the set is packaged in a 6 x 12 box, covered in red and gold foil, features a sixty four page booklet with a detailed album and singles discography, and recording and personnel information. It also includes essays from music historian Nelson George, former tour manager Alan Leeds, compilation producers White and Weinger, as well an introduction from James Brown himself. It receives great critical acclaim upon its release, and is regarded as one of the best ever collections of a single artist’s work. The box also receives high marks for its excellent sound quality throughout, having been remastered from the best source materials available. The set wins a Grammy Award for Best Album Notes in 1992. “Star Time” peaks at number eighty nine on the Billboard R&B album chart, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

Bir yeri terk ettiğimizde orada bizden bir şeyler kalır. Gitmiş olsak da orada kalırız. Ve içimizde bazı şeyler vardır ki sadece oraya dönerek bulabiliriz. Çok kısa bir süreliğine de olsa hayatımıza sahnelik eden bir yere gittiğimizde ruhumuza yolculuk ederiz. Ama kendimize ettiğimiz bu yolculukta, kendi yalnızlığımızla yüzleşmemiz gerekir. Ve yaptığımız her şey yalnızlık korkusundan yapılmıyor mu zaten? Hayatımız son bulurken pişman olacağımız onca şeyden vazgeçme sebebimiz bu değil mi?
