A**hole (Sanctuary Records, USA, Jun 2004) Gene Simmons' solo album with his version of the Dylan/Simmons co-composition WAITING FOR THE MORNING LIGHT
 


WAITING FOR THE MORNING LIGHT (Sanctuary Records SANPRX 245, UK, May 2004) - promo CD single scan by Ronald Born

WAITING FOR THE MORNING LIGHT Bob Dylan/Gene Simmons, 1996 N?

"Billboard" in Jun 2003 revealed that Gene Simmons' first solo record in 25 years would feature songs co-written by Simmons with Bob Dylan and the late Frank Zappa. The album was finally released on 8 Jun 2004 in the USA on Sanctuary Records entitled "A**hole"! The UK promo CD single of WAITING FOR THE MORNING LIGHT from the album is dated "17.05.04" (17 May 2004).

The Dylan co-written song, "WAITING FOR THE MORNING LIGHT," was born out of a one-day writing session at Simmons' home in Los Angeles six or seven years ago, the Kiss bassist/vocalist reveals.

"Bob came up with the chords, most of them, and then I took it and wrote lyrics, melody, the rest of it," says Simmons, adding that he kept urging Dylan through the years to put lyrics to the song. "I'd see him on tour, and I'd say, 'Bob, you wanna write the song? And he would say, 'No, man, you write it, Mr. Kiss.'"

Of the one-day session, Simmons says, "We understood each other right away. He picked up an acoustic guitar, and we just tossed it back and forth, 'How 'bout this, how 'bout that?' And he started to strum, because he -- at least with me -- tended to talk and strum guitar at the same time. And as soon as I heard the first three or four chords, I went, 'Wait, wait, what's that? Do that again.' So I went and started to write a lyric around that." For a 1991 song co-written by Bob and Gene Simmons see

Copyrighted Nov 1964 and lyrics published in the New York folk magazine "Sing Out!" Jan 1965, but there is no record of any studio or live performances.

The piece itself was part of the growing manuscript of what was then called "Tarantula Meets Rex Paste", but, along with several other pieces, was not included in the final Macmillan version of "Tarantula".

WELL WELL WELL Bob Dylan/Danny O'Keefe, 1993 N?
Although he has never recorded it in the studio, WELL WELL WELL was first performed live by Don Henley at the Walden Woods Benefit, Foxboro, MA, 6 Sep 1993, and broadcast by Westwood One as part of their "Superstars In Concert" series, show #93-43, in the week of 18 Oct 1993. Thanks to Tim Dunn for information. The first release on CD was by David Lindley and Hani Naser on their album "Playing Even Better" (Pleemhead 75676-2, 1995), followed by an outing on Maria Muldaur's "Fanning The Flames" album (Telarc Blues CD 83394, US, 1996, also on her compilation "I'm A Woman: 30 Years Of Maria Muldaur" (Shout! Factory/Rhino DK-301219/OPCD-7614, US, 2004)).

Gil Walker says: "The guy I heard about the song from is also a film/music critic for a local group of weekly newspapers; he told me he asked Maria about the song at a recent club appearance, and she told him, that, as far as she knew, no one else had released a version of the song. Where did she get it? She said she just called up Dylan one day and asked him if he had anything on hand she could put on her new record - so he sent it to her! Unfortunately, she didn't say (or John didn't ask) whether she got sheet music, a Dylan demo, or something else to work from."

Thanks to Hans Marijnissen for the information that the lyrics are at Danny O'Keefe's web-site , and thanks to Gil Walker for this quote about the song from Danny O'Keefe's web-site explaining Maria's source: "I used to work for Bob Dylan's publishing company, Special Rider Music, and Bob sent me a demo tape and requested that I write lyrics to the song. I arranged the song and wrote the lyrics that you have below. David Lindley heard the song on a demo tape I sent him and recorded the song. Maria Muldaur and Mavis Staples also have a version of the song together. I think the meaning is fairly plain: poison the sources of water and we are all effected. Water is the life of the planet, as is the air, the earth and the fire within."

Maria therefore received the song on the demo tape mentioned above performed by co-writer Danny O'Keefe, not Bob, so there is no circulating Dylan version. Danny O'Keefe released his own version in February 2000, on his album "Running From The Devil" (Miramar 090006-23148-2), its first appearance from one of its writers. Maria has also covered the unreleased song AIN'T NO MAN RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE.

David Lindley re-recorded the song with Wally Ingram on their September 1998 album "Twango Bango Deluxe" (Ulftone UTCD-003) and it has also been covered by Steve Howe with P.P. Arnold as guest vocalist on his Jun 1999 album "Portraits Of Bob Dylan" (Eagle Records, UK/Purple Pyramid CLP 0600-2, US). One of these versions appears on the Australian Raven album "Danny's Best 1970-2000 - Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues" (Raven Records WWRAV 71098, Australia, 2005).

Also covered by Michel Montecrossa on his 2011 Mira Sound Germany 2CD set "Something That Counts: Climate Change Acoustic Concert - Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2011", which also contains covers of COVER DOWN, BREAK THROUGH, GET YOUR ROCKS OFF and YOU’VE BEEN HIDING TOO LONG. Thanks to Tim Dunn for information

That is definitely mine, although I am now forced to share composer rights with Bob Dylan ( I ripped off the tune of ON THE ROAD AGAIN). I don't mind that! Apparently it is still getting plays on American TV stations, calling it 'Freakbeat'." (PLEASE STAY was co-written by Burt Bacharach, as was WHAT'S NEW, PUSSYCAT?, the 1965 film theme song performed by Tom Jones.) The song can also be found on two UK CD compilations: "Telstar: The Hits Of Joe Meek" (Castle, 2005) and "Joe Meek Freakbeat: You're Holding Me Down - 30 Freakbeat, Mod & R&B Nuggets" (Sanctuary, 2008).
