331  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Is "Baby, You're driving me crazy" a cover or Dani on: September 17, 2003, 05:55:01 PM

Here is a recording of Daniel's song from the Montreal live show.  (not Toronto as previously stated)  Thanks, Doug!

We've been alerted to the fact that the single line "Baby, you're driving me crazy" is reknown in MANY songs, and that there is one song in particular where the melody accompanying that single line is very similar.  

We are assured by Daniel that this song - while the first line is common in many songs - and the melody accompanying that line - while very similar with at least one other artist - is his own song and melody.   The rest of the song bears this out as being Daniel's own.

about the song "baby, you're driving me crazy song"..that daniel played on
the last tour.
I heard it on the soundtack from the 1990' film Henry: portrait of a serial
is NOT a daniel johnston song, but a cover.
I don't know the real title, but isn't "baby, you're driving me crazy". I attach the first verse of the song as appears on the film.. I'm sorry for
the quality, but it is recorded directly from the movie.

I'm writing regarding Daniel Johnston's archive material, and your request for feedback on how it should be released. First of all, I'm glad you're giving this tricky situation as much attention and consideration as you seem to be, hopefully it'll be this consideration that allows you to meet your goals.

Considering those, my only suggestion (at the moment) would be, in accordance with Daniel's management, to compile the best of the material on the tapes, or the best entire tapes (if there any as cohesive as the Stress
releases) - this can be done as you listen to them, in any sort of order you can muster (if you can work out any chronological continuity from the vast amount of tapes). These compilations can then be set up in cassette form, as with the Stress releases (as fidelity isn't really an issue, unless you'll be doing significant remastering, and it'll make it more awkward for bootleggers). Limited numbers of these cassettes will be available. A sign-up for those interested in obtaining the tapes can be announced on your website - take a limited number of names and make the first tapes available to them. Every couple of months, allow a few more people onto the list. If that's not careful enough - though I'm not 100% sure about this - I believe binding legal contacts can be utilised, which can be sent to all of those interested to then sign, which will ensure the illegality of reproducing the material for profit (I'm just assuming you'd be setting up a label purely for these releases).

Regardless of how, I hope you do manage to get this material out, and that it only benefits Daniel, because I know there are bound to be a lot of people excited by this, myself included!

ooh ooh! all i can say is i am all for somehow making that archive material available. i don't know how to do it w/o opening it up to abuse from people trying to make $$ off it though. but I would definitely pay for copies of these. personally i would want them to be available as CDs or cassettes or something [rather than mp3s].

My feed back is : I love the 9 cassettes that were on stress records , so i would love to hear the 2000 others!

maybe you could put together a few "best of cdr" and let the fans distribute them (through weeds).

or put one song per day on mp3 available on the site (they do that - one per month - on the Velvet underground site: "boot of the month")

keep up the good work!

Doug Sulpy here. I wrote “The 910’s Guide To The Beatles’ Outtakes,” the most recent volume of which I dedicated to Daniel.
RE: The Archival Material ... I suggest that the material is made available to fans via rejectedunknown.com the same way that Richard Thompson has made some CDs available strictly through the webpage, or “artist to fan” the way that King Crimson have marketed their “Collector’s Series.” I think the MP3 of the week is a great idea (there’s only been two of them so far, though! [at least I hope only two...] so it’s going to be half a year before we have enough to burn a full CD of the stuff...), but I’d rather see the material collected and sold to the hard-core fans (and who else would hang out here?) in a series. This has the potential both to feed our unending desire to hear more Daniel Johnston material, and also give Dan another source of small-but-steady income, no? Many of us won’t get a chance to hear him on his current tour, so one of those shows would be great. It would also be nice to hear the un-dubbed home tapes that served as a basis for “Fun” (although I guess the rights would be kind of iffy on that), and the full 49 minute version of “Living It For The Moment” (just kidding wink). Anyway, there’s my $0.02 cents.

One more suggestion for the webpage — please have an archive of the MP3s of the Week available somewhere (much as you do for the photo of the week).

338  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Fan forum on HOW TO UTILIZE Daniel Johnston archive mater on: September 17, 2003, 04:55:26 PM
There is known to exist about 1800 to 2200 cassette tapes from Daniel over the last 20 years - more than anyone in their right mind would ever sit down and listen to.  For that reason we've been listening to it non-stop for over a month now!
The question still confronts us here at www.RejectedUnknown.com WHAT TO DO WITH IT?   Daniel himself doesn't know what to do with it.

So we are opening the question up looking for INPUT FROM YOU on what might be done with some of this material.  OUR GOALS INCLUDE:

- Making some of it available - at least to the hard-core Daniel Johnston Fans
- Doing that (over time) without stealing attention from his current work
- Finding ways to do this and keep the material from "getting into the wrong hands" (anyone who would try to commercialize it)
- and a continued list of goals and concerns

We are asking for your FEEDBACK - what are YOUR thoughts about such material?   What are YOUR concerns over making this material available?  What ways could this material be used that benefits Daniel the most?   Etc.

Let us hear from you.
