My Father - Graham Gouldman - The Graham Gouldman Thing (CD, Album)
Prior to the album's recording Graham Gouldman had established himself as a hit singles songwriter, with his most successful songs written for Herman's HermitsThe Yardbirds and The Hollies.
Louis Union and Cher as well as his own new compositions. Gouldman recorded the album at Olympic Studios in London, a studio that would later be extensively used by My Father - Graham Gouldman - The Graham Gouldman Thing (CD Zeppelin. It was recorded with the assistance of John Paul Jones and Eddie Kramer and both of whom would also achieve considerable success with Led Zeppelin. The liner notes acknowledge the use of "some fabulous players on the sessions", but do not name them.
In sleeve notes for the CD re-release, Gouldman said his manager Harvey Lisberg suggested he make the album, reworking his hits and recording new songs. The last verse of the song best reflects my feelings on this. This song has been recorded by many artists and remains one of my favourites. Very emotional. Listen to GG sing "My Father. It was notable as the first Herman's Hermits single to feature orchestral arrangements and, in an interview with the "Forgotten My Father - Graham Gouldman - The Graham Gouldman Thing (CD newsletter, lead singer Peter Noone said, "Personally I think 'No Milk Today' is Herman's Hermits' best recording, and perfectly captures the moment and the feel of Manchester terraced houses and what was the end of a British era.
I recall that John Paul Jones played bass guitars an upright and a fender bass on the tracks and was also responsible for the arrangements, which I dare say are brilliant on all 3 tracks but I know he liked 'No Milk Today' and I would suggest that his arrangement turned this perfect Graham Gouldman song into a hit.
Hindsight is golden Each one knowing that the other is there Each one hoping that the other will dare To climb the first stair Another song covered by Gouldman fan Peter Noone and his Herman's Hermits, who included it on their critically lauded album Blaze.
Herman's Hermits: "Blaze" This perky pop song finds Gouldman crooning like Paul McCartney as he recounts the story of a boy and girl living in the same building who keep waiting for one another to make the first move. A happy boy-finally-meets-girl ending is guaranteed Drummer Jim McCarty recalled that Gouldman's songs " Very interesting songs, very moody, because they were usually in a minor key, the ones we did, anyway.
And the fact that it stopped in the middle and went into a different time signature, we liked that, that was interesting. Quite different, really, from all the bluesy stuff that we'd been playing up till then. But somehow we liked it. It was original and different. But Yardbirds bassist Paul Samwell-Smith added a number of changes to Gouldman's original song, including the use of a harpsichord replacing Gouldman's acoustic guitar introwhich was played by session muscian Brian Auger later to achieve solo fame and with Julie Driscoll in Brian Auger and My Father - Graham Gouldman - The Graham Gouldman Thing (CD Trinitywhose biggest hit was the Dylan cover "This Wheel's On Fire" - which, incidentally, later became the theme song for the BBC comedy series Absolutely Fabulous.
In an August interview with Uncut magazine, Gouldman admitted: "The harpsichord was an absolute stroke of genius. The record just had a weird, mysterious atmosphere about it. It's a clever "alternate" version that's kind of funky in its own way. Everyone clamoured around them — and there I was just part of an anonymous group. I felt strange that night, hearing them play my song.
Listen to Wayne Fontana sing "Pamela Pamela. Milne to Laurel and Hardy. Oh, Pamela I remember so well When Laurel and Hardy were shown at the flicks With sticky red lollies on splintery sticks Pigtails and ribbons and crushes on miss Secret discussions about a first kiss But you were young And everything was new Impatient to do things you couldn't do Watch GG play "Pamela Pamela" The Impossible My Father - Graham Gouldman - The Graham Gouldman Thing (CD Graham Gouldman.
