Το Happy Trails των Quicksilver Messenger Service είναι από τα άλμπουμ που η πρώτη τους ακρόαση μένει ανεξίτηλη, σαν “εμπειρία ζωής” – έτσι τουλάχιστον λειτούργησε για μένα.
Τους ακούμε στο “Mona”, ένα τραγούδι του Bo Diddley που είναι και το τιμώμενο πρόσωπο στο μεγαλύτερο μέρος της ηχογράφησης. Blues και ψυχεδέλεια, “ βιβλικά” σόλο από τις κιθάρες των John Cipollina, Gary Duncan.

Quicksilver Messenger Service’s Happy Trails is one of the albums that the first time you hear them remains indelible, like a “life experience” – this was the way it was for me anyway.
We hear “Mona”, a Bo Diddley song, who happens to be the honored person during the most part of the recording. Blues & psychedelia, historic solos from the legendary guitar players John Cipollina, Gary Duncan.


❝ Mona, I need you
Mona, ooo-ooo, Mona
Yeah! Yeah-yeah-yeah!
Ooh-ooo-ooo, Mona
Tell ya Mona, what I wanna do
Get-a my house a-next door to you
Can I see you sometime?
A-we could go kissin’ through the blind
Can you come out in the front do’?
Listen to my heart go bumpbity-bump
I’ll lead you baby, that’s no lie
Without your love I will surely die
Hey-ay, Mona
Ooo-ooo, Mona
Hey! Whoa-oh, whoa-ooh, Mona
Hey-aay! Mona
Hey-Hey-aay, Mona
Ooh-ooh, Mona
Can you come out on the front?
Listen to my heart go bumpity-bump
Hey little baby, that’s no lie
Without your love I will surely die.



Stay Safe!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
