Ricke Lee Jones - The Moon is Made of Gold

Biography

From the moment she first appeared in front of us on Saturday Night Live in 1979, Rickie Lee Jones has challenged her listeners and the establishment with an absorbing musical vision that defies border and classification. She rocked the culture of singer-song writerdom with her refusal to conform to the stayed and careful eloquence of the folk rock generation that came before her. Neither punk ...

It seems strange that when someone mentions "great female singer-songwriters", very few can come up with the name Rickie Lee Jones.
Well, Jones is not only one of the great female singer-songwriters but she is also one of the great songwriters of any gender and generation and her buoyant, energetic debut proves it.
Released in 1979 but mostly recorded during 1978, when Jones was still just 23 years old, RICKIE LEE JONES is one of the forgotten albums of the last 25-30 years, a huge hit when first released but forgotten soon afterwards. If all you have to go on is "Chuck E.'s in Love", you don't know much about Rickie Lee.
This record encompasses so much feeling and plenty of different genres; Jones seems comfortable with rock, pop, funk, R&B, jazz and folk, and she is an able pianist and a sublime guitarist. "Chuck E.'s in Love", her only major hit, is a great swinging, jazzy tune but not the best cut on the album.
Jones' humour is displayed on "Chuck. E", the similarly upbeat be-bop of "Danny's All Star-Joint" and the lounge jazz-y "Easy Money", which in effect set the ball rolling for Jones when Little Feat frontman Lowell George first recorded it.
But she shows unmatched emotion on such cuts as "On Saturday Afternoons in 1963", a piano ballad that has become one of Tori Amos' favoured live covers, the cabaret of "Company" and, particularly, on the beautiful "The Last Chance Texaco", one of the album's best compositions.
Jones' hipster chick persona comes across on "Coolsville" and the groovy "Weasel and the White Boys Cool", both peppered with interesting characters (the album is consistent in that characters such as 'Bragger' appear more than once), but she is not gimmicky by any means (she really did lead the "jazz lifestyle").

I had never heard of Ricki Lee Jones. I was watching an episode of the TV shows "Alias", and heard this beautiful song - one which was unique enough that I could still remember it after only one listen. I found out online that it was "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963", by Ricki Lee Jones.

Sometimes I'd put the "Alias" episode on, just so I could listen to this song. Then I heard it at the end of an episode of "House, MD" and decided to take the plunge and buy her album (with my office Grand National sweepstake winnings!). It arrived today, I've just finished listening to it as I type this, and wow.

I also found myself bopping along to the more upbeat song, like "Chuck E's In Love" (I knew the song but hadn't realised Ricki Lee Jones sang it).

"On Saturday Afternoons In 1963" is one of the rare ballads on the album (along with "Coolsville"), but you know, I'm SO glad I took a chance and bought this album, because this is something special. I might even play it again straight away.

I think with its pure piano melody and haunting clear voice, "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963" has just catapaulted into my top 10 favourite songs. And that's no easy task...

Format: Audio CD
I can remember when every London Hi-Fi store you went into in the late Eighties had two discs to demonstrate what the new fangled format of CD was capable of - and both were debuts. One was Donald Fagen's "The Nightfly" from 1982 and the other was "Rickie Lee Jones" - her beautifully produced self-titled debut from 1979. Yet for such audiophile titles both have remained 'un-remastered' in singular form for the average Joe to buy with ease for decades since. For Steely Dan's Donald Fagen you have to buy the hugely irritating and disappointing MVI Trilogy Box Set and for Rickie you have to go to Japan. And that's where this superb SHM-CD reissue comes in...

Released 12 June 2012 - Warner Brothers Japan WPCR-14508 (Barcode 4943674118373) is a straightforward reissue/new remaster of the album on the SHM-CD format and breaks down as follows (42:15 minutes):

1. Chuck E.'s In Love
2. On Saturday Afternoons In 1963
3. Night Train
4. Young Blood
5. Easy Money
6. The Last Chance Texaco
7. Danny's All Star Joint [Side 2]
8. Coolsville
9. Weasel And The White Boys Cool
10. Company
11. After Hours (Twelve Bars Past Goodnight)
Tracks 1 to 11 are the album "Rickie Lee Jones" - released March 1979 in the USA on Warner Brothers BSK 3296 and June 1979 in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56628

A SHM-CD doesn't require a special CD player to play it on (compatible on all) nor does it need audiophile kit to hear the benefits. It's a new form of the format that picks up the nuances of the transfer better (top quality make). I own about 15 of them and they're uniformly superb. The 5" repro sleeve is typical of Japanese quality - beautifully rendered (quite what they mean by 'Light Mellow 2012' on the outer sticker is anybody's guess).

This is one of the most assured and unique debut records ever released. The vocal style and songwriting marked her as a true original and undisputed heir to Joni Mitchell. The jazzy rhythms and vocal loop de loops, the infectious grooves and bluesy melancholy of the work is entrancing. On Saturday Afternoons in 1963 is heartbreaking in its piercing nostalgic sadness, whilst Danny’s All Star Joint is a bopping joy. It’s all here; the ups and downs of street life are moulded into perfect compositions that have resonated through the years since the album’s release. Rickie Lee Jones has continued to record, and although she doesn’t sell in the millions as she did with this debut and the equally brilliant Pirates, she is still doing her thing regardless of public interest. A true artist in a time of shallow performers.
