  • HUSH Time

    Couldn't find a similar thread in the search, if there has been one, please flag it up. It seems not everyone is au fait with Hush. Probably not everyones cup of tea, but if, like me, you love it, bang up a version or two. I'm sure some will have obscure versions, if you are willing to share them, more power to you.
    Start at the beginning I suppose.
    I've got 4 copies of this, all with surface noise!




    Get in there chaps......just a bit of fun

    That keeps you from being a part of it all
    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
    You've just got to be close to it all

              I always had a soft spot for the original.

                Glad you like it.

                IIRC they're Nashville session players that decided they'd have a go at something a little more psychedelic.

                The blurb reckons the sessions were Jimmy Buffett's first studio recordings.

                Wish he'd done a bit more like this

                  Collecting versions of this is 'my thing' and had 21 at the last count.

                  I won't list them all here as it will kill the thread but I genuinely like Killdozer's cover. Why? Because it's different.

                  PS- I don't think that Nice 'War & Peace' track has any resemblance to 'Hush', it just sounds like an uptempo generic blues stroll to me!

                    Nice ones so far, Electric Screwdriver, and Four Blazers both very cool, and new to me.
                    Do you collect all versions Col, or just "good" ones? Are there any awful versions out there?
                    I saw Kula Shaker at Brixton Academy as Hush was rocketing up the charts. Even then I felt really old, the place was rammed with teenage girls who went nuts when they played Hush. Perfect
                    One for Stylesforfree
                    Fantastic sidies alert

                    BTW, I though the Billy Joe Royal version was the 1st. Could be wrong. I think Joe South got it down onto wax about'69- '70. He may have recorded it earlier possibly?

                      This is what I'm talking about...and at last someone's put some decent audio over the tv footage....Michel Pagliaro's backing is superb....




                      The single commands a fair old price on the rare occasions when it does surface... but Christmas is approaching and if you feel you might like to make a chicken very happy......???

                          I've been looking for it on 'Dans Le Vent Vol 2', the second of two excellent compys of Quebecois garage for awhile - I've actually got one in my Discogs basket at the moment but I'm struggling to find something else reasonably cheap and interesting from the same Canadian seller to make the postage worthwhile....

                          Tell me more of this RCA comp of which you speak....PLEASE!!!

                              Thanks Treeboy,

                              Readers - following a consultation we have now established;

                              a) I'm an idiot who had practically forgotten that he already owns the RCA compilation that Treeboy describes; '24 Succes' (RCA SPCS 33-85) and...

                              b) This compilation is NOT recommended for seekers of 'Mal' by Jenny Rock as it's a sub K-Tel quality monstrosity that edits all the tracks, thus giving you only 1:57 of a song that only lasts 2:34 anyway, plus you'll likely get burned for the postage from Canada...only an idiot would buy this....(files it back in the collection....)
                              you can hear colours when they rhyme...
