Listen to Dave’s Gone By episode #463 (Put a Gork in It, aired 3/22/14): Rabbi Sol Solomon chats w/ singer-songwriter John Gorka.

 

John Gorka slated to appear from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Central time on Saturday on a show called Dave’s Gone By. The show is streamed live on UNC Radio. He’s being interviewed by Rabbi Sol Solomon, who will also touch on the late David Brenner, composer Stephen Sondheim and Bob Dylan. The episode is titled “Put a Gork In It.” “I always wished I could be a sensitive new-age songwriter, but fate has consigned me to being an insensitive, old-fashioned crank,” the rabbi says. “Still, musicians like John Gorka remind us that songs can be thoughtful, amusing, uplifting and transporting – in other words, the antidote to me.”

Should you miss the live interview with Gorka, I am told that they are achived and that you can catch them for free at www.davesgoneby.com or on the Dave’s Gone By YouTube channel. >

 

 

 

 

 

 


John Gorka live in the KUTX
studio (Dec 5, 2013)
KUT Public Media Studios 300 W. Dean Keeton (A0704) Austin,Texas.... Click here to support KUTX

John played three songs (click on the title)

Branching Out
Little Birds (?)
Wayfaring-Stranger

 

 


  The last song John played in "John Gorka on The Blend" is The Youngbloods cover "Get Together"
"Get Together", also known as "Let's Get Together", is a song written in the early 1960s by American singer-songwriter Chet Powers (aka Dino Valenti). The song was originally recorded as "Let's Get Together" by The Kingston Trio and released on June 1, 1964, on their album Back in Town. While it was not released as a single, this version was the first to bring the song to the attention of the general public. The Kingston Trio often performed it live. A version of the song first broke into the top forty in 1965, when We Five, produced by Kingston Trio manager Frank Werber, released "Let's Get Together" as the follow-up to their top ten hit "You Were on My Mind". While it did not achieve the same level of success as the other, "Let's Get Together" provided the group with a second top forty hit on the Billboard Hot 100 when it peaked at number thirty-one. It would be their last. Jefferson Airplane recorded a version which was released on August 15, 1966, on their debut album, Jefferson Airplane Takes Off. In 1966, Chet Powers, in an effort to raise money for his legal defense on drug charges, sold the rights to the song to Frank Werber. Judy Collins performed the song live at the 1966 Newport Folk Festival, and her version was included on a later album compiling highlights of various Newport Festivals. From 1967-1969, "Get Together" was a staple in Joni Mitchell's shows, often playing the song as an encore. Reclusive singer-songwriter Nick Drake recorded "Get Together" at his home in England in early 1967, before releasing his debut album. Though some of these home recordings have been released on various rarities box sets, his version of this song has not yet been released. In 1967, The Youngbloods released their version of the song under the title "Get Together". It became a minor Hot 100 hit for them, peaking at number sixty-two. However, renewed interest in the Youngbloods' version came when it was used in a television public service announcement as a call for brotherhood by the National Conference of Christians and Jews. The Youngbloods' version, the most-remembered today, was re-released in 1969, peaking at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100" [Wikipedia]

Red Horse performs live at 88.1 KDHX in St. Louis.
Recorded april 20, 2012


..................................................................................................................................................................................................... All images by Chris Bay

This is certainly the case with singer-songwriters Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky, who make up Red Horse. As individuals, these artists have years of experience with several albums worth of material under their belts, but here, they put their collective energy together for a project that showcases their strengths in a band setting.

The folk scene surrounding Red House Records has always been tight-knit, with performers sitting in on each other’s songs. However, Red Horse takes the camaraderie to a new level. While new material from each songwriter is present, as well as a cover song each from the three

   

performers, what's unique about this triumvirate is that they each allow one of the other members of the group to reinterpret one of their songs. By turns, each artist takes a back seat as one of their two fellow bandmates sings lead on one of their songs. Reinterpretation is the sincerest form of flattery, especially when the songwriter gets to play along and harmonize.

With sparse instrumentation and lush vocal harmonies, these songs demonstrate that Gilkyson, Gorka and Kaplansky are in their prime as artists with a sound as rich as the broken in wood of the guitars they play.

John Gorka talks about the DVD with Jim Ed Poole.

On the John Gorka.com forum page John Gorka wrote a reply about "My Buddy Frank":

Hello,
The version I played on the radio was a work in progress. I believe it is closer to being done now. A friend of Frank's asked me to write the song for him. I'll explain more at a later date. I don't know if Frank has heard the song yet. Frank's friend Joe liked it okay. It was intended for an audience of 2-5 people. All for now,
John G.
