Long John Baldry & boogie woogie

Postby bohawg » Fri Nov 05, 2004 4:02 am

Around 1973 I heard a song by Long John Baldry that started off with a discussion between some poor bloke and a Judge about something called "boogie woogie" music. It had an incredible beginning and was a fine tune. I can not find it anywhere.
I have found somethin' like "Ain't gonna put no boogie woogie on the King of RocknRoll" by Baldry and bought it, but it is not the one I am seeking. Does anyone out there know this other particular song, where I can find it or what album it is on? I have searched for it for nearly 30 years now. thanks, Bohawg

Did you ever find the version you were looking for with the dialogue that precedes the tune by Baldry's boogie woogie. I have also been searching for that particular version that was popular in the 70's.

The LP was called "It Ain't Easy" and was released in 1971 on Warner Brothers. The 3:15 talking intro by LJB is called "Conditional Discharge" and is followed by "Don't Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie On The King Of Rock And Roll" - songwriting credit to "Thomas"(?). Album features Elton John and Ronnie Wood.

I have a CD from a second hand store put out by Line Music/Warner Germany but it isn't in their current catalog.
