Chris Farlowe

 

Chris Farlowe, nome d'arte di John Henry Deighton (Islington, 13 ottobre 1940), è un cantante britannico. Il suo singolo di maggior successo è stato Out of Time (1966), incisa anche dai Rolling Stones, primo nelle classifiche del Regno Unito.

Biografia

Farlowe ha iniziato la carriera musicale con i The John Henry Skiffle Group nel 1957, poi con i The Johnny Burns Rhytm e i Blues Quartet nel 1958. Nel 1959 entrò a far parte dei Thunderbirds, con i quali pubblicò cinque singoli.
Ha inciso con Alexis Korner e dal 1970 è un componente del gruppo jazz rock inglese Colosseum, con i quali ha registrato gli album Daughter of Time (1970) e Tomorrow's Blues (2006). È stato anche, sempre nei primi anni '70, cantante degli Atomic Rooster, altro gruppo rock britannico. Ha eseguito molte cover di Rolling Stones e Rod Stewart ed è il vocalist in tre canzoni dell'album Outrider (1988) di Jimmy Page.
Negli anni sessanta Farlowe era solito usare lo pseudonimo "Little Joe Cook" nei suoi lavori, per far credere di essere un cantante di colore.
In una formazione della sua band negli anni '60 ha militato un giovanissimo Carl Palmer.
Farlowe - che possiede uno showroom a Islington - si rifiutò di incidere la canzone Yesterday, propostagli dai The Beatles, successivamente portata all'enorme successo dagli stessi autori.

 Chris Farlowe (born John Henry Deighton, 13 October 1940 in Islington, North London)  is an English rock, blues and soul singer. He is best known for his hit single "Out of Time", which rose to #1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1966, and his association with Colosseum and the Thunderbirds. Outside his music career, Farlowe collects war memorabilia.

Career

Inspired by Lonnie Donegan, Farlowe's musical career began with a skiffle group, the John Henry Skiffle Group, in 1957, before he joined the Johnny Burns Rhythm and Blues Quartet, in 1958. He met guitarist Bob Taylor in 1959 and, through Taylor, joined the Thunderbirds, who went on to record five singles for the Columbia label. On Island's Sue label, he released a version of "Stormy Monday Blues" under the pseudonym Little Joe Cook, which perpetuated the myth that he was a black singer.
Farlowe moved to Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate label and recorded eleven singles, five of which were cover versions of Rolling Stones songs including "Paint It, Black", "Think", "Ride On, Baby", "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", and "Out of Time", which reached no. 1 (1966) in the UK Singles Chart. He recorded four more singles, the best known of which is Mike d'Abo's "Handbags and Gladrags" and "My Way Of Giving" a cover of a Small Faces album track written by Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane
He began an association with the jazz rock group Colosseum in September 1970, recording a live album and two studio albums including, Daughter of Time (1970). Later from Colosseum reunion in 1994 he appeared on all Colosseum albums released.
In February 1972 he joined Atomic Rooster, and is featured on the albums Made in England (1972) and Nice 'n' Greasy (1973).
He sang vocals for the theme music written by Greenslade for the BBC Television series Gangsters. In 1978 he had a part in a play produced by BBC Birmingham, Curriculee Curricula, first shown on BBC Two and shot in its entirety on video at the University of Birmingham campus, with Magnus Magnusson as the narrator. Farlowe and Greenslade provided the music. He also sang on two tracks from Jimmy Page's Death Wish II soundtrack (1982), as well as the tracks "Hummingbird", "Prison Blues" and "Blues Anthem" on Page's album Outrider (1988).
Chris Farlowe toured for a long time with Hamburg Blues Band, mainly in Germany.
In 2009, Farlowe toured as a featured artist with Maggie Bell and Bobby Tench as part of the "Maximum Rhythm and Blues" tour of 32 UK theatres.

You don't know what's going on
You've been away for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine

You're out of touch, my baby
My poor old-fashioned baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're, left outta door without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

You thought you was a clever girl (Clever girl)
Giving up your social whirl (Social whirl)
You can't come back, be the first in line, oh yeaheah

You're obsolete, my baby
My poor old faithful baby
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're, left outta door without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Oho, yeah
Oho, yeah
Oho, yeah
Aha, yeah!

Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're left out, out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

(Is everybody ready?)

(Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time)
You thought you were a clever girl
(I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time)
Oh, you're living in a social whirl

(Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time) Yes, you are, right now
(I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time)

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards


 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Handbags and Gladrags - Chris Farlowe - YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3yN0JvG5co
Ever seen a blind man cross the road,
Try'na make the other side?
Ever seen a young girl growing old,
Try'na to make herself a bride?

So what becomes of you my love,
When they have finally stripped you of,
The handbags and the gladrags,
That your poor old Grandad had to sweat to buy you?

Once I was a young man,
And all I thought I had to do was smile,
Well you are still a young girl,
And you bought everything in style,

So once you think you're in, you're out,
'Cause you don't mean a single thing without,
The handbags and the gladrags,
That your poor old Granddad had to sweat to buy you,

Sing a song of six-pence for your sake,
And drink a bottle full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds in a cake,
And bake them all in a pie,

They told me you missed school today,
So what I suggest you just throw them all away,
The handbags and the gladrags,
That your poor old Grandad had to sweat to buy,

They told me you missed school today,
So what I suggest you just throw them all away,
The handbags and the gladrags,
That your poor old Granddad had to sweat to buy you.
