“I Call, No Answer”

I Call, No Answer – Jack Green (1980) FLAC Audio 4K Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

“I Call, No Answer” was released on Jack Green’s debut solo album, Humanesque, in 1980. I discovered this album when I was working at the record store. I recall we only received 3 copies of the album and no one knew who the artist was. I took a chance and opened a copy ——- (As I’ve mentioned in video descriptions before, I came across so much great music in this way….open a copy of an album and buy it if it was good or use the excuse that it was for in-store play …even if we didn’t like it and never played it…it happened! LOL!) —- and I remember liking it immediately, and the girl I worked with grabbed a second copy as we listened to it for the first time. Another employee bought the 3rd copy the next day. I played the hell out of it for weeks, and we special ordered some more, but never really met the demand that could be made by simply playing the album in the store….the manager would get so pissed off that I played things that we didn’t have in stock! This album was one of my favorites from the early eighties, and I’ve listened to it frequently for the last nearly 40 (ouch!) years!…still sounds as amazing as ever.

Jack Green played with T. Rex between 1973 and 1974, then with The Pretty Things between 1974 and 1976, recording Silk Torpedo and Savage Eye. After Phil May walked out on the Pretty Things he carried on with Peter Tolson, Gordon Edwards and Skip Alan in Metropolis. He also was a member of Rainbow for three weeks in late 1978.

I bought Pretty Things’ album Cross Talk the same year as this one and only learned many years later that Jack Green played in that groups two albums previous to Cross Talk (Silk Torpedo in 1974 and Savage Eye in 1975)….this is another really great band to check out!

I took the FLAC audio from the CD release and equalized them for a bit more bass. I think the audio adjustment makes the tracks sound fuller with more bottom end, better, but they are just a hair under clipping and I need to give a more critical listening on my home system.

I started videos from this record over 6 years ago, but never worked them out, I really wanted to get some out so I decided to use my favorite cheat (the equalizer video! LOL!). I’ll probably crank out more consecutive videos from this album than I typically do, so hope you enjoy Jack Green! Wanted to start with this track because Richie Blackmore (Rainbow, Deep Purple) played typically outstanding guitar on it, but every single track on the record has great, great guitar playing.

[Lyrics]
Drive all night motor fast
Pushing gears pumping gas
Burning rubber highway too

I’ve got to make it back to you

I call no answer
What’s the matter with your telephone line
I call, no answer
It’s disconnected all the time

Indian summer get to you
Just too long to do you good
Country women very pretty
I’m gonna find a little peace in the city

I call no answer
What’s the matter with your telephone line
I call, no answer
It’s disconnected all the time

So I take a little walk
Down by the tenement block
I knock and no one’s home
So I try the telephone

Keeping up, keeping time
Watch the road watch the line
Country women very pretty
I’m gonna find a little peace in the city

Hey, I call no answer
What’s the matter with your telephone line
I call, no answer
I can’t reach you any time

I call no answer
I’ve got to reach you I’ve got to reach you
I call, no answer,
It’s disconnected, disconnected, disconnected
I keep trying no answer
I cannot reach you all night long
I try now answer
Something wrong with your telephone line
alright

I call no answer
And no answer
I call no answer
I call no answer
