Famous Blue Raincoat 永遠的藍雨衣
這是加拿大著名作家、詩人、歌手Leonard Cohen在1971年他第三張專輯中發表的曲子,從歌詞中,可以看出這是一齣三角戀情,內中有愛、有恨、有原諒。第一次聽到是Leonard Cohen以第一人稱在唱,第二次聽到是Jennifer Warnes在唱,原本主角是男性,但Jennifer唱的時候,主角卻轉換為女性,所以原歌詞的意思也會讓人有不同的想法。Jennifer Warnes唱時,保留絕大部分原來的歌詞,只是做了很小的變動。如果比較二者,Leonard Cohen所唱的聽起來好像已經事過境遷,心情已經放下了。而Jennifer Waners唱起來則還帶著哀怨,二者都值得欣賞。以下是Leonarn Cohen原唱的歌詞:


It's four in the morning, the end of December
Im writing you now just to see if youre better
New York is cold, but I like where Im living
Theres music on Clinton street all through the evening.

I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
You're living for nothing now, I hope you're keeping some kind of record.

Yes, and jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that  you planned to go clear
Did you ever go clear?

Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
You'd been to the station to meet every train
And you came home without lili marlene

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobodys wife.

Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see janes awake

She sends her regards.
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
Im glad you stood in my way.

If you ever come by here, for jane or for me
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

And jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear

sincerely



Jennifer Warnes這張「Famous Blue Raincoat」是1986年出版,當年她39歲(1947年生)。一位女歌手39歲才紅,不會太晚嗎?其實Jennifer Warnes早在1967年就出道,唱過鄉村歌曲、流行歌曲、電影主題曲,也在電視劇中露過臉,這些往事音響迷都不知道,直到她出版這張「Famous Blue Raincoat」開始,音響迷才知道有她這個人。老實說一個歌手如果有一張專極大紅,而且版權能夠確保,這也夠了,由於這張唱片不斷以不同版本再版,Jennifer Warnes靠這張唱片的版權應該也有不少收入。最新的一次再版就是20週年紀念的24k金版,還有33轉的黑膠唱片版。以前就曾出版過黑膠唱片,不過那是45轉。
Leonard Cohen可說是Jennifer Warnes的貴人,她在1970年代就是Leonard Cohen演唱會時的合音歌手,因此二人相熟,也才會有這張全部都是Leonard Cohen作品的專輯。老實說,如果論錄音效果,有很多專輯都不輸給這張,但為何這張CD能夠一翻再翻呢?我認為重點就是這首「Famous Blue Raincoat」這首曲子的功勞。以前第一次聽到這首歌時,心臟簡直就是揪了起來,歌曲中沒有呼天搶地,但卻道盡男女之間的複雜糾葛,這就是人間世啊!Raincoat其實是我們老中說的風衣,也是老外冬天經常穿在身上,可以當做雨衣用的擋風擋雨衣服。從唱片封面中,也可看出Raincoat就是我們老中所說的「風衣」。不過,用藍雨衣還是比較貼近藍色的憂鬱感覺。
在這張專輯中,音響迷最不喜歡聽的可能是第一首「First We Take Manhattan」,因為內中的低頻Bass量感並不多,而小鼓卻非常響亮突出,這會讓硬調空間聽起來刺耳。有些音響迷一直要把這首曲子的低頻調得豐滿,其實那是錯的,原本的低頻根本沒那麼多。假若第一首曲子的低頻調得很足,往後幾首的低頻都過量了。雖然是1986年出版,當年已經進入CD時代,但這張專輯卻是類比錄音,現在新出版這張33轉黑膠就是用類比母帶去重刻的,刻片師是大家都知道的Bernie Grundman。刻片品質很好,音質美,內聲部清晰,細微音樂細節都能浮現出來。
您已經有多少種版本了?打算再多一個版本嗎?Joy Audio有賣
