I had this on my calendar to post today because I thought today was the release date. When I went to my LRS (Local Record Shop) last week to buy a James Taylor album on CD to get me in the mood, I saw that America Standard was already on sale, so I must have been mistaken. I still haven't listened to it much until today anyway because I've been listening to "The Diary of River Song" series seven.

Many of these songs fit the COVID-19 situation eerily well. Today's selection...

I'LL BE SEEING YOU

 I'll be seeing you in all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces all day through
In that small cafe, the park across the way
The children's carousel, the chestnut trees, the wishing well

I'll be seeing you in every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way
I'll find you in the morning' sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

DON'T GET AROUND MUCH ANYMORE

When I'm not playing solitaire
I take a book down from the shelf
And what with programs on the air
I keep pretty much to myself

Missed the Saturday dance
Hear they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

Thought I'd visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked about you
Don't get around much anymore

Darling, I guess my mind's more at ease
But, nevertheless, why stir up memories?

Been invited on dates
Might have gone, but what for?
Awfully different without you
Don't get around much anymore

TILL THEN

Till then, my darling, please wait for me
Till then, no matter when it will be
Some day I know I'll be back again
Please wait till then

Our dreams will live though we are apart
Our love I know we'll keep in our hearts
Till then, when all the world will be free
Please wait for me

Although there are oceans we must cross
And mountains that we must climb
I know every gain must have a loss,
So pray that our loss is nothing but time

Till then, let's dream of what there will be
Till then, we'll call on each memory
Till then, when I will hold you again
Please wait till then

I'LL WALK ALONE

I'll walk alone because, to tell you the truth, I'll be lonely

I don't mind being lonely

When my heart tells me you are lonely, too

I'll walk alone, they'll ask me why and I'll tell them I'd rather

There are dreams I must gather

Dreams we fashioned the night you held me tight

I'll always be near you wherever you are each night

In every prayer

If you call I'll hear you, no matter how far

Just close your eyes and I'll be there

Please walk alone and send your love and your kisses to guide me

Till you're walking beside me,

I'll walk alone

I'll walk alone

WHEN THE LIGHTS GO ON AGAIN

When the lights go on again all over the world

And the boys are home again all over the world

And rain or snow is all that may fall from the skies above

A kiss won't mean "goodbye" but "Hello to love"

When the lights go on again all over the world

And the ships will sail planes will fly again all over the world

Then we'll have time for things like wedding rings and free hearts will sing

When the lights go on again all over the world

When the lights go on again all over the world

AC-CENT-TCHU-ATE THE POSITIVE

You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium's
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah and the whale, Noah and the ark
What did they do just when everything looked so dark?

(Man, they said "We'd better accentuate the positive")
("Eliminate the negative")
("And latch on to the affirmative")
Don't mess with Mister In-Between (No!)
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

(Ya got to spread joy up to the maximum)
(Bring gloom down to the minimum)
(Have faith or pandemonium's)
(Liable to walk upon the scene)

You got to ac (yes, yes) -cent-tchu-ate the positive
Eliminate (yes, yes) the negative
And latch (yes, yes) on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, don't mess with Mister In-Between

I Don't Want to Walk Without You

All our friends keep knocking at the door
They've asked me out a hundred times or more
But all I say is, "Leave me in the gloom"
And here I stay within my lonely room
'Cause…

I don't want to walk without you, baby
Walk without my arm about you, baby
I thought the day you left me behind
I'd take a stroll and get you right off my mind
But now I find that…

I don't want to walk without the sunshine
Why'd you have to turn off all that sunshine?
Oh, Baby, please come back
or you'll break my heart for me
'Cause I don't want to walk without you
No, sir

Green River by Creedence Clearwater Revival. I was looking through my old vinyl album collection and Green River was the first album I pulled out. Still sounds great after all these years. This would probably be considered Roots Rock today, in the Sixties it was often referred to as Swamp Rock.Whatever you call it, CCR really hit the mark with this one.
