SUMMER BOY written by Buffy Sainte-Marie (from her 1967 release Fire & Fleet & Candlelight), is the first single from Reid Jamieson’s upcoming tribute to Buffy Sainte-Marie (out on her bday in Feb 2023).Originally a love song when Buffy sang it, here we find Reid looking back at his younger self with all the longing of summers end. Huge vocals with dark instrumentation fit for a Bond theme, and a fine example of BSM’s incredible catalog.

Naturally, Reid cannot sing her many potent indigenous protest songs. He can, however, sing her praises as a singer songwriter. Many are familiar with the activist and icon, but if you are anything like us, you may not be as familiar with the diverse body of music this living legend has released over the last half century. Such creativity with song structures and adventurous melodies, Reid says he has never felt so inspired to create and be intentional with his art. Lending his voice to amplify hers in hopes of reaching new audiences on both sides, this may very well be the first tribute album of its kind.

A new documentary about BSM ‘Carry It On‘ based on Andrea Warner’s fantastic authorized biography (we read it twice!) just premiered at TIFF, don’t miss it this fall!

Be sure to join the mailing list to find out when the full album comes out!

SUMMER BOY – LYRICS

Face of joy,
covering all your fears
Summer boy
give me your tears
Hands of gold
playing a prayer
Heart and soul,
praying a song

Clowns can smile,
and gardeners grow their flowers
Summer boy,
give me your hours
Give me your glance
like the wing of a dove
Summer boy,
give me your love

Suns can set
and willows can weep their tears
Summer boy,
give me your years
Give me your hand,
before autumn starts
Summer boy
give me your heart

written by Billy Talmadge. For our dear Texan peeps. You are the best of Texas.

When we dance together my world’s in disguise
It’s a fairyland tale that come true
And when you look at me with those stars in your eyes
I could waltz across Texas with you

Waltz across Texas with you in my arms
Waltz across Texas with youLike a storybook ending,
I’m lost in your charms
And I could waltz across Texas with you

My heartaches and troubles are just up and gone
The moment that you come in view
And with your hand in mine dear
I could dance on and onAnd I could waltz across Texas with you

Waltz across Texas with you in my arms
Waltz across Texas with youLike a storybook ending, I’m lost in your charms
And I could waltz across Texas with you

A special request by commission to celebrate the life and love of Deborah Lynn Gardiner (Feb 17, 1953 – Apr 11, 2021), with love from her husband Jim and son John. Written by Richard Marx and Linda Thompson. Made popular by Josh Groban. Performed and recorded by Reid Jamieson. Produced by Carolyn Mill. Artwork by CVM. You’re still an inspiration Deb, thank you. Please share with someone you know who has lost a loved one. They live on in our hearts.

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear
Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are my
Forever love
And you are watching over me
From up above.
Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for a while
To know you're there
A breath away's not far to where you are.
Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream?
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen
As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me
Everyday
Cause you are my
Forever love
Watching me
From up above
And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on
And never leave
Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for a while
To know you're there
A breath away's not far to where you are.
I know you're there
A breath away's not far to where you are

Fellow Canadian Reid Jamieson pays tribute to living legend Joni Mitchell with this tender but joyous acoustic take on her track All I Want, the opening track from the album Blue on its 50th anniversary. Recorded for Joni’s 75th.

I am on a lonely road and I am traveling, traveling, traveling, traveling Looking for something, what can it be Oh I hate you some, I hate you some, I love you some Oh I love you when I forget about me I wanna be strong I wanna laugh along I wanna belong to the living Alive, alive, I want to get up and jive I want to wreck my stockings in some jukebox dive Do you want, do you want, do you wanna dance with me baby Do you wanna take a chance on Maybe finding some sweet romance with me baby, well come on All I really really want is our love to do Is to bring out the best in me and in you too All I really really want our love to do Is to bring out the best in me and in you I wanna talk to you, I wanna shampoo you I wanna renew you again and again Applause, applause, life is our cause When I think of your kisses my mind see-saws Do you see, do you see, do you see how you hurt me baby So I hurt you too Then we both get so blue I am on a lonely road and I am traveling Looking for the key to set me free Oh the jealousy The greed is the unraveling it’s the unraveling And it undoes all the joy that could be I wanna fun, I wanna shine like the sun I wanna be the one that you want to see I wanna knit you a sweater Wanna write you a love letter I wanna make you feel better, I wanna Make you feel free Hm hm hm, hm Wanna make you feel all free I am on a lonely road and I am traveling, traveling, traveling, traveling

HEY BIG KID – An Ode to
Vinyl Cafe’s Stuart McLean
Apple Music | Spotify | YouTube

HEY BIG KID – An Ode To Stuart McLean, Vinyl CaféThought y’all might want to join the rest of Canada in celebrating the return of Vinyl Café this summer! The late great Stuart Mclean will back on CBC Radio this summer for a 10-week season, starting June 30th. Each episode will air Wednesday evenings at 11pm and Sunday mornings at 11am.  We celebrate Stuart and all that he meant to Canada with this ode to its cherished storyteller. Stuart also took great pride in was introducing the rest of Canada to independent musicians. From the Good Lovelies to Danny Michel, many found a new, more appreciative audience. Vancouver’s Reid Jamieson played a somewhat unique role as part of the official Vinyl Café Orchestra (with badge to prove it) and was brought on to feature in special episodes such as The Train Show (recorded onboard VIA Rail’s The Canadian) and ‘Stuart as a Boy’ (with tales of his growing up in Montreal). Always a challenging gig, as not only did Stuart continue to write and edit the stories up to the last minute, he also changed his mind about which songs should accompany the stories…keeping Reido very much on his toes! Reid also created the original artwork for the posthumous CD box set ‘Unreleased Stories’…which reminds us, they have a new book coming out this fall ‘The Vinyl Café Celebrates’. And couldn’t we all use something to celebrate this year? 😊

It’s just a wee tiny song (under 2 minutes!), so please consider giving it a wee spin…

LYRICS

I remember the first time I heard you
On the radio
I started driving slow
Through tears of laughter and sympathy
You made the scenery
seem more real to me
How could I have known?
That one day we would share this road
Makin words and music together
Bring it to the people
through all kinds of weather

Hey big kid,
caught you playin’ with your words again
You let them spill across this country
And you made yourself a million friends
Hey big kid,
all your travels will they never end?
So if you’re lookin’ for a jukebox you can call your own
All ya have to do is tune me in!
And hey big kid,
you just made yourself another friend
Hey big kid, we caught you playin’ with your words again
Hey big kid, I hope this story never ever ends…

Stuart will be missed by all that were touched by his kindness, charisma and curiosity.

Sending big love to the whole Vinyl Café and CBC family.
