But you are still sure that all the songs listed below are from the same sessions, the so called Caribou-seesion?


The songs listed above you mean? Yes, but it was not just one session, it was several sessions (lasting about a week as far as I can recall). I even seem to recall a report at the time saying that he'd recorded "About 40" songs.

What are the 4 Kenny songs?


They are ...

Things Songs Are Made Of
Party Time
She Sure Makes Leaving Look Easy
Just Another Woman


Is the song actually not called Parted Time?

Yes, above of course, sorry :oops: . Reason for asking is the difference in the sound in some of these songs, but it could be due to the fact that these are recorded over several days as you say. But I also remember that one of the songs that were leaking out from the Killer Country sessions where Tennessee Waltz, but he could have recorded it again of course.

As I said, the details in 'Killer!' aren't accurate: I just used the best information I had in 1991-1992 when I wrote it. I guess I read or heard somewhere that he recorded 'Tennessee Waltz' in 1980, so I assumed it was during the 'Killer Country' sessions.

He just seemed more "into it" during the 1987 session (& he must've been proud of these himself as he premiered several songs from these during his 1987 European tour).


Not only did he premier them but he had taken the time to really learn the songs by listening to them on a Walkman between shows. I think myself very lucky to have heard "What Am I Living For" at Bridlington and "One of Them Old Things We All Go Through" at Northampton. Both with superb piano and very similar in arrangement to the studio cuts. And I love "Rock'n'roll is Something Special", it is absolutley outstanding !


Even Jerry's band learnt them to some extent: I remember being surprised to see / hear Joel Schumaker playing slide guitar on 'Hang Up My Rock & Roll Shoes' in Cambridge (& I think in Northampton too), & when I asked him why he said it's because he's copying the record! It wasn't until I actually heard the 1987 studio cut years later that I realised what he was talking about.


The slide guitar on the studio recordings is fantastic!

I remember Colin Philips wrote in Lewis Scene that Jerry had let him listen to the recordings on the Walkman. The same edition of LS that included the Northampton show review and after-party review. I was amazed to hear that such things as meeting JLL were possible. The UK tour of 1987 ratcheted up my interest in JLL considerably! Although it was arguably the last great tour of Europe and the UK with JLL consistently playing long and varied shows. I know there were some amazing tours of Germany post 1987 but we were soon into a new era of JLL.

April, 1981, was to see the Electra release of the 12-song gospel album but Jimmy Bowen plugged the plug just before it was to hit the market. The follow-up single to "39 & Holding" was to be "Eight X Ten b/w Keep My Motor Running" in May, 81. Ditto for that.


is there a possible tracklist out, which songs, artwork etc? i´m so interested in this period

Maybe, but I think Johannes is after the track listing for the proposed 1981 gospel album (which I don't know either).

Good to see you back on here by the way. :D
