Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Time Apparently Wasn't On The Tambourine Player's Side

Posted 07-04-2021 at 11:26 AM by case44


No matter how big a fan you might be of classic rock or oldies rock, if you're a musician, then you still tend to nit-pick at the some of the things you hear. And some artists, particularly those in the 1950s and '60s, don't take exception.

The other day, I was listening to Oldies 97.7 FM out of Lubbock (via my smartphone, of course), and I couldn't help but notice some musicianship that was out of sync on an old song. It was The Rolling Stones on a version of the classic, "Time Is On My Side". You know how that one goes. During that release, the drummer and the tambourine player were often not in the same wavelength, especially in the first verse of the tune. For whatever reason, I'm wondering why. Purposeful or not, there was just no reason for the tambourine player not to be in time with longtime drummer Charlie Watts on the piece as it's being played. I guess time wasn't on his side, for all intents and purposes. You'd think that a professional recording would demand pinpoint beatkeeping throughout a musical arrangement.

I'll let you be the judge when you take a listen to this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oSRvcdlgSI

Drum critics for things like this can say whatever they wish. Maybe one day, I'll actually find something online talking about that very thing. If I find out, then I'll bring it here for your perusal.
