THE JEFF BECK GROUP : PLYNTH (WATER DOWN THE DRAIN) – 1969

Ένα κομμάτι από τη δεύτερη κυκλοφορία του Jeff Beck Group, πρώτη υπογεγραμμένη από τη μπάντα. Στο κιθαριστικό ριφ του ‘Plynth (Water Down The Drain)’ βασίστηκε, 3 χρόνια αργότερα, το ‘Before The Kiss, A Redcap’ των ΒΟC [εδώ].
Ούτως ή άλλως, το Beck-Ola θεωρείται το άλμπουμ – αρχέτυπο του
hard rock – heavy metal ήχου.

A track from the second Jeff Beck Group’s release, first signed by the band.
‘Plynth (Water Down The Drain)’‘ s guitar riff was the basis for BOC’s ‘Before The Kiss, A Redcap’ [here], 3 years later.
In any case,
Beck-Ola is considered the album – archetype of hard rock – heavy metal sound.

I’ve woken up on mornings such as this
And thought exactly the same as I’m thinking now
Every night for a year I’ve slept alone
My cold damp room looks worse than me
I got a fear of death that creeps on every night
I know I won’t die soon but then again I might
Just like water down the drain I’m wasting away
And oh, doctors can’t help. a ghost of a man, that’s me
I’m going far
Ah, ah, ah
And oh, water down the drain flows to the sea
The pattern of my life keeps a-hauntin’ me
Like moisture from the ocean fills the sky
Comes on down to the ground as time goes by
Ah, ah, ah
Please don’t weep for me when I’m gone
Ah, ah, ah
I got a fear of death that creeps on every night
I know I won’t die soon but then again I might
Please don’t weep for me when I’m gone
Ah, ah, ah
A fear of death that creeps on every night

      Thank you very much. I’ll be back with more Jeff Beck stuff hopefully Tuesday. Tomorrow Monday is our ex-king’s funeral, which means the climax of my other tribute [music for kings and queens]…
