Blue Velvet

Pop and Misc. Notes
Blue Velvet

After the success of his song "Blue on Blue" (#3 in mid-1963), Vinton decided to record an album of "Blue" songs ("Blue Moon," "Blue Hawaii," "Am I Blue," etc). As he was picking up sheet music in Nashville, Vinton received a gift from publisher Al Gallico: a copy of "Blue Velvet," which in 1951 was the last major hit for Tony Bennett. The song fit very well with Vinton's project, as every song on the album had "Blue" in the title.

Duane Allman started playing Statesboro Blues after hearing the version by Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal made a "wonderful modernized version" on his eponymous 1968 debut album.

No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley

Pop and Misc. Notes
No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley


No Woman No Cry is a title of a song written by Bob Marley, a famous Jamaican Reggae artist. The meaning of “No Woman No Cry” is controversial.

I’ve thought that the meaning is “There is no woman who does not cry”. However, someone says the meaning is “Women! Do not cry !”. It would be rendered "No, woman, nuh cry" in Jamaican Patois. The "nuh", which makes a shorter vowel sound for "no", is the equivalent of the contraction "don't".
