Hide Your Love Away – john jones

December 21st, 2017 § Comments Off on Hide Your Love Away – john jones § permalink

TBT – My first Christmas in Hollywood. Recorded December 24, 1993. Feeling it, I had to sing it.

I only had my Beatles Lyrics book, and no copy of the song, so my version is from memory, with me doing John Lennon (in my mind), rather than John Lennon doing bob dylan, as in the original. 🙂

Hardly a moment goes by without me thinking about Billie Rainbird and Simon Phillips, and what they going through, after losing their home and recording studio to the Thomas Fire in Ojai, earlier this month.

I don’t think I have ever met two more beautiful people than Billie and Simon. There is a lot of love in these two!

Help them by visiting their gofundme Life Rebuilding Fund page for more information.

After falling asleep hoping it wasn’t true, I woke up at 4 am with a song in my heart. I walked across the lawn to ESP studio, turned the gear on, put on a blank 1/4 ” tape, hit record, and went out to the piano with Sebaka and recorded this song – Oh No. ©1980 John Jones

It’s hard to imagine that it’s been less than 100 years since this ad for the Victor Talking Machine Company was published.
