Howie B.: Folk
Robbie Robertson appears on lead vocals on one track, "All This Means To Me," on
Howie B.'s 2001 album Folk.
guest artists on the album include David Essex and Sweetie on vocals, Robbie
McIntosh on guitar and Jon Hassell on trumpet. No guest appears more than once.
"All This Means To Me" features Robbie's trademark breathy whisper over, sorry,
under, a heavy computer bass line with delicate adornments from Howie B. around
this. The chorus is actually All this means this to me... I've noticed in past interviews
how often Robbie uses 'this' in speech. It's reminiscent of
Redboy and the previous
Howie B collaboration "Take Your Partner By the Hand." Lyric quote:
Wake up... wake up to this...
I woke up last night, soaked to the bone
I could heard someone breathingat the other end of the phone...
(Don't sleep under the cherry tree,
with anyone else but me)
Now you see us, now you don't
She says she will but you know she won't
Taking myself out of the picture
Taking myself of the wall...
