about

Début CD album by one of Wily Bo Walker's early bands; The Baddies
Released on Core Records in 1990

Most of the tracks are available on the Flaming Hearts Records compilation 'Dancing Under the Coyote Moon' but this CD contains the early single release 'Everytime You Move' - a really energetic version of one of WIly's early songs.

Produced by John McGowan (Rory Gallagher/The Marionettes) and mastered by Steve Rooke at Abbey Road Studios. (Interestingly enough Steve Rooke mastered the Wily Bo Walker solo single 'I Want To Know (NY Funk Mix) at the end of 2013 so the circle comes around…

Track Name: Hearts on Fire
IT'S GONNA RAIN
I CAN FEEL IT IN MY BONES
BUT I WON'T LET IT BOTHER ME
NOTHING SEEMS IMPORTANT SINCE YOU LEFT HOME
NO DRIVING PAIN
OR SENSE OF FAILURE I HAVE KNOWN
IS GONNA DRAG ME DOWN
GET ME RUNNING UNDERGROUND
SINCE THAT LAST NIGHT YOU PHONED

MY HEARTS ON FIRE
I GOT TO WORK THIS TOWN
BUT I'M NOT GONNA LET IT
NOT GONNA LET IT DRAG ME DOWN…

IT'S ALL THE SAME
ANOTHER NIGHT OUT ON YOUR OWN
BUT I'M NOT GONNA LOSE THAT SPARK
I'M NEVER, EVER GONNA SINK THAT LOW
A BURNING FLAME
ANOTHER ACTOR OUT ON LOAN
ANOTHER RIDER ON THE STORM
JUST TRYING TO KEEP IT WARM
ANOTHER DOG WITHOUT A BONE

I MIGHT BE COLD
ICY FINGERS THROUGH MY SOUL
I MIGHT BE ALONE SINCE THAT NIGHT I LET YOU GO
I MIGHT NEVER, EVER SEE YOUR PRETTY FACE AGAIN
BUT I DREAMT LAST NIGHT
I HEARD YOU CALL MY NAME…

NOT GONNA LET IT
NOT GONNA LET IT DRAG ME DOWN…
NOT GONNA LET IT
NOT GONNA LET IT DRAG ME DOWN…

IT SET MY HEART ON FIRE
AND THOUGH MOST DREAMS BURN DOWN
I'M NOT GONNA LET IT
NOT GONNA LET IT DRAG ME DOWN…

NOT GONNA LET IT
NOT GONNA LET IT DRAG ME DOWN…
NOT GONNA LET IT
NOT GONNA LET IT DRAG ME DOWN…

Track Name: I Want to Know
SURE TURNED OUT LIKE SOME KIND OF SUMMER
WHAT WITH THE HEAT AND THE WIND AND THE RAIN
WE WERE LIVING IN THE DEEP SOUTH
A PASSION BURNING IN OUR VEINS
ONE NIGHT BABY SAYS SHE FEELS THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG HERE
SHE FEEL A TERROR LIKE A HEARTBEAT
DEEP INSIDE
AND THEN BABY SAID SHE WOULD
BABY SAYS SHE MIGHT
JUST TAKE A LITTLE DRIVE OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
I WANNA KNOW
I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
WHERE GOES MY BABY? MY BABY TONIGHT?

WHEN IT TURNED INTO THE COOL OF NOVEMBER
I KIND OF KNEW I’D NEVER SEE HER AGAIN
IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT
WHEN YOU TURN OUT THE LIGHT
I SWEAR I HEARD HER
CALLING OUT MY NAME

TODAY I HEARD THEY'D FOUND HER CHEVY
BURIED HALFWAY DOWN IN THAT TAHOE MUD
BUT IT WAS EMPTY INSIDE
LIKE MY BABY’S EYES
WHEN SHE TOOK TO DISAPPEAR OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
I WANNA KNOW
I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
WHERE GOES MY BABY? MY BABY TONIGHT?

AND I’VE BEEN DRIVING THROUGH THESE STREETS IN THE MOONLIGHT
TRYING TO FIND A REASON WHY
IT'LL TAKE A FOOL LIKE ME
NOT TO REALISE, REALISE…
I NEED MY BABY TONIGHT…

Track Name: Let Yourself Go
I GOT YOUR NAME
I GOT YOUR NUMBER
SO LET'S RIDE THIS TRAIN TONIGHT
INTO THE HEART OF THE SUMMER
MIGHT BE ALONE
MIGHT HAVE TO SUFFER
BUT THERE'S SO MUCH YOU GOT TO DO
SO MUCH YOU GOT TO DISCOVER…

AND I'LL TELL YOU
HOW THE BLOOD STARTS TO FLOW
IF YOU JUST COME ON BABY…
LET YOURSELF GO
AND I'LL TELL YOU ALL YOU NEEDED TO KNOW
WAS JUST TO, COME ON BABY,
LET YOURSELF GO
GO!

THE HOT LEATHER SWEAT OF THIS MIDSUMMER NIGHT TRAIN'S RHYTHM GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN
EVEN THE BOYS IN THE BAR TONIGHT
GOT THE SWEET STICKY SMELL
OF THEIR OWN ADDICTION
IN THE BACK ROOM
DUTCH WILL OPEN YOUR MIND
IF YOU PAY HIM FOR A FIVE OR A TEN
YOU CAN GET STRAIGHT
OR YOU CAN PLAY WITH YOUR LIFE
IT MIGHT BE MIDSUMMER MADNESS
BUT THEN AGAIN…

I'LL TELL YOU
HOW THE BLOOD STARTS TO FLOW
IF YOU JUST COME ON BABY…
LET YOURSELF GO
AND I'LL TELL YOU ALL YOU REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW
WAS JUST TO, COME ON BABY,
LET YOURSELF GO
GO!

LET YOURSELF GO
GO ON AND LET YOURSELF GO
YOU KNOW IT FEELS SO GOOD
YOU NEVER UNDERSTOOD
JUST HOW TO LET YOURSELF GO…

LET YOURSELF GO
GO ON AND LET YOURSELF GO
YOU KNOW IT FEELS SO GOOD
YOU NEVER UNDERSTOOD
JUST HOW TO LET YOURSELF GO…

AND I'LL TELL YOU
HOW THE BLOOD STARTS TO FLOW
IF YOU JUST COME ON BABY…
LET YOURSELF GO
AND I'LL TELL YOU ALL YOU REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW
WAS JUST TO, COME ON BABY,
LET YOURSELF GO
GO!

IF YOU WANT TO DIE YOU GOT TO SCREAM
IF YOU WANT TO MAKE LOVE IN BETWEEN…
LET YOURSELF GO

IF YOU WANT TO DIE YOU GOT TO SCREAM…
IF YOU WANT TO DIE
YOU GOT TO…

OH BABE YOU’RE NOT
I KNOW YOU’RE NOT

Track Name: Red Jacket and Jeans
JIMMY BOUGHT A MERCURY IN NINETEEN SEVENTY FIVE
DROVE IT HALF ACROSS AMERICA
JACK KEROUAC STYLE
DROVE IT EAST OF EDEN
DROVE IT WEST OF THE LAW
GONNA BURN OUT LIKE A REBEL (WITHOUT A CAUSE)
JIMMY BOUGHT A MERCURY IN NINETEEN SEVENTY FIVE

JIMMY MET JUDY,
YEH, HIS VERY OWN NATALIE WOOD
DROVE HIM OVER THE EDGE
WHEN SHE SAID SHE THAT WAS LEAVING FOR GOOD
TOOK A LEFT FROM THE FREEWAY
DOWN TO DEAD MAN'S CURVE
GONNA TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT BUT HE…
TOOK A DRIVE DOWN LAKESIDE
JUST TO SEE HER ONE MORE TIME IF HE COULD

COME ON, COME ON, COME ON
LIKE A NEW JAMES DEAN
COME ON, COME ON, COME ON...
RED JACKET AND JEANS

SOME KIDS ARE BORN LUCKY,
SOME KIDS JUST LIVE THE LIFE THAT THEY CHOOSE
BUT JIM WAS BORN WITH NOTHING
JUST A BURNING LIKE A SHORT TIME-FUSE
IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT
YEAH, ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS
A DREAM CAN TURN INTO A FEVER
SOME PEOPLE KILL FOR PASSION,
SOME MURDER FOR THE LOVE THAT THEY LOSE...

SUMMER NEVER FELT QUITE LIKE THIS
YOU COULD KILL SOMEBODY'S SISTER
FOR JUST ONE KISS
THEY SAY THERE'S BEEN A MURDER -
SHE WAS SEVENTEEN -
BUT THEY'VE GOT A GOOD DESCRIPTION...
RED JACKET AND JEANS

JIMMY BOUGHT A MERCURY IN NINETEEN SEVENTY FIVE
RAN IT STRAIGHT INTO A ROADBLOCK
GONNA TAKE THAT KID IN DEAD OR ALIVE
JIMMY JUMPS OUT
LIKE HE GOT SOMETHING TO SAY
PUT HIS HANDS IN THE AIR
BUT THEY BLEW HIM AWAY
TWENTY YEARS ON AND HE WAS BURNED LIKE HE WAS PART OF THE FIRE

SUMMER NEVER FELT QUITE LIKE THIS
AH, YOU KILL SOMEBODY'S SISTER
FOR JUST ONE KISS
THEY SAY THERE'S BEEN A MURDER -
SHE WAS SEVENTEEN -
BUT THEY'VE GOT A GOOD DESCRIPTION...
RED JACKET AND JEANS

(CALLING ON THE FIRE, YEAH, I'M CALLING ON THE DREAM,
COME ON LITTLE BROTHER LIKE A NEW JAMES DEAN…)

Track Name: Living a Lie
LET'S CALL IT LIVING A LIE
WHEN YOU'RE CAUGHT UP IN BETWEEN WRONG AND RIGHT
LET'S CALL IT LIVING A LIE
WHEN YOU'RE DANCING OUT BETWEEN BLACK AND WHITE
BEAN MET SALLY, MARRIED FAR TOO YOUNG
AND THEN JUST FADED AWAY
HE USED TO DRINK TOO MUCH
SHE USED TO CRY AT NIGHT WHEN HE CAME HOME TO SAY…

DON'T CRY BABE THERE'S A NEW FRONTIER
UNDER THE EMPTY SKY
DON'T CRY BABE YOU'RE ON A DOWNHILL SLIDE

BEAN PACKED UP AND CAUGHT THE LAST NIGHT TRAIN DOWN TO DESIRE
SLEPT IN CHEAP HOTELS
IN DARKENED ROOMS
AND DRANK HIS DREAMS TO FIRE
SALLY WORKED NIGHTS
FOR SOME DOWNTOWN BOY
SHE HAD GOT TO KNOW
BUT THE PEOPLE NEXT DOOR
THEY WOULD HEAR HER SAY WHEN SHE WAS ON HER OWN…

DON'T CRY BABE THERE'S A NEW FRONTIER
UNDER THE EMPTY SKY
DON'T CRY BABE YOU'RE ON A DOWNHILL SLIDE
IF YOU'RE JUST LIVING A LIE

BEAN MET SALLY IN A DOWNTOWN BAR
IN NINETEEN EIGHTY FIVE
THOUGHT HE KNEW THE FACE
THOUGH SHE HAD GAINED SOME WEIGHT
AND A WHOLE LOT OF LINES
HE FELT A BIT NERVOUS AS HE BOUGHT HER A DRINK
SHE TURNED HER HEAD THEN SHE SMILED
SAY 'WHAT YOU BEEN DOING THE PAST TEN YEARS?'

I'VE BEEN LIVING A LIE
JUST BEEN LIVING A LIE
LIVING A LIE…
OH BABE I'M JUST LIVING A LIE

BUT DON'T CRY BABE THERE'S A NEW FRONTIER
UNDER THE EMPTY SKY
DON'T YOU KNOW BABE YOU'RE ON A DOWN HILL SLIDE?

DON'T CRY BABE THERE'S A NEW FRONTIER
UNDER THE EMPTY SKY
DON'T YOU KNOW BABE YOU'RE ON A DOWN HILL SLIDE?
IF YOU'RE JUST
LIVING A LIE…

Track Name: Dance
DON'T TURN BACK NOW, SUSANNAH,
I KNOW IT'S DARK OUTSIDE
THAT'S NO REASON TO HIDE YOUR FACE
THAT'S NO REASON TO RUN AND HIDE
WE CAN DANCE ALL NIGHT LONG
UNDER THE STARS ABOVE
WHO KNOWS WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN, BABE
WE MIGHT EVEN FALL IN LOVE...

COME ALONG, SUSANNAH,
SUSANNAH, WON'T YOU COME ALONG
YOU CAN ASK YOUR DADDY
BUT YOUR DADDY, HE'S ALREADY UP AND GONE
WE CAN HIRE A JEEP
FROM JOHNSON'S BY THE SWAMP
AND DRIVE THROUGH ROTHKO LANDSCAPES
WHERE YOU CAN'T TELL RIGHT,
RIGHT FROM WRONG
THAT COYOTE HE SINGS MY FAVOURITE SONG
HE SINGS MY FAVOURITE SONG
DANCING WITH MY BEST FRIEND
DANCING WITH MY BEST FRIEND'S WIFE 'TILL DAWN

YOU GOT TO GO DOWN MOSES
WON'T YOU GO DOWN, PLEASE
TELL SAM BROWNE FOR ME
THE FIRES OF HELL THEY GONNA BURN TONIGHT
THEY'RE GONNA BRING HIM BACK DOWN UNTO HIS KNEES
WELL, DOWN MCHENRY BREAK
WHERE THERE'S NO-ONE AROUND TO SEE
SUSANNAH, SHE'S GONNA SELL HER SOUL
FOR A LITTLE BIT OF SANCTUARY
WITH THE DEVIL DANCING WILD
WITH THE DEVIL DANCING WILD AND FREE
DANCING WITH MY BEST FRIEND
DANCING WITH MY BEST FRIEND'S WIFE AND ME...

WE'RE GONNA DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE
YOU CAN BET YOUR LIFE
THAT WAS ME BEHIND THE ROADHOUSE
DANCING THROUGH THE NIGHT
WITH MY BEST FRIEND'S WIFE…

COME ALONG, SUSANNAH,
THERE'S A FULL MOON SHINING BRIGHT TONIGHT_
DOWN BESIDE THE OCEAN
WE'RE GONNA SEE WHAT OUR LOVE,
A LITTLE LOVE IS GONNA FIND
DOWN AT MUDDERSHOW CREEK
IN THE CLEAR MOONLIGHT
WE CAN CRAWL LIKE ROUSSEAU'S CATS
LIKE TIGERS IN THE NIGHT
SOME PEOPLE THEY'VE GOT THEIR LIVES TO FIGHT
SOME PEOPLE GOT TO FIGHT FOR LIFE
BUT NOT ME
I'LL BE
DANCING WITH MY BEST FRIEND
DANCING THROUGH THE NIGHT
WITH MY BEST FRIEND'S WIFE...
