Charles Manson - Close To Me (Remastered)



THIS IS A FABULOUS PERFORMANCE BY CHARLES MANSON, WHICH I'VE ALWAYS ENJOYED.  I BELIEVE IT'S HIS BEST SOLO WORK. 
THE AUDIO ALSO DEMONSTRATES A YOUNGER,  "LIGHTER, MORE PLAYFUL" SIDE OF MANSON, YOU DON'T OFTEN SEE.
TAKE A LISTEN, AND TELL US WHAT YOU THINK!

He wrote that in 1967? Where did this take place?

Mary said...

It is hard to believe that is him...it is so far removed from the caricature that he has become.

that laugh or gigle is reminicent of hanging with friends getting high. it is much lighter and giggling that what I am used to hearing in recorded manson. I do like his singing voice very much.

The album is sold on Amazon, and the very brief "Production Description" states:

"12 exclusive tracks recorded 9/11/67 at The Beach Boys' home studio. Charles Manson plays guitar and sings nearly a full 2 years before the Tate-LaBianca slayings made him a household name".

Could that be Wilson or Melcher joking with Manson? Anyone?

What I would like to know, is if this is an original, or a "cover".
Manson performed primarily originals... but, I really have no idea.

Anyone know for sure?

Katie & Mary, this is Bob... a really cool cat, and a welcomed new member.
Help me make him feel at home.

Hope to see a lot of you Bob.

I'll bet it's Wilson joking with him.

song

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

It is quite a cool song Bob.
That's why I've always wondered if it was written by someone else.
I really gotta look into that.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Friends... I've gotta run.
I'll prolly be back on in a couple hours.
Have fun everybody.

Shit... I've gotta put information somewhere at the top, explaining to interested folks, how to join. LOLOL
I knew there was something I forgot! LOL
Homer Simpson: DOAH! hahaha

I'm not quite sure. but... I think this song is not form Manson. There is a very famous song called "sabor a mí" which sounds exactly the same and was written by a Mexican in 1959... I would say this is a plagy, but not sure though, it could also be the other way around.
