1998年自旅至舊金山 曾與地陪學妹聊起"San Francisco Bay Blues"
當時還說返台之後要把找得到的幾個版本拷成一捲錄音帶送她
不過這個承諾至今一直沒能兌現:p

近日再度憶起此事
於是探起它的底細

Wikipedia上頭有人如此介紹這首歌:

"San Francisco Bay Blues" is an American folk song and is generally considered to be the most famous composition by Jesse Fuller. Fuller first recorded the song in the mid-1950s for a small label called World Song. The song was brought into wider popularity in the early 1960s by club performances by Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Bob Dylan, and Jim Kweskin. Recorded covers have been performed by many artists including Richie Havens, Eric Clapton, The Flatlanders, Paul McCartney, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, and Peter, Paul, and Mary.

A "one-man band" rendition of the song featuring a kazoo solo was recorded by Fuller himself in a 1962 concert. This has been included in a Smithsonian Folkways compilation, Friends of Old Time Music.

以下從YouTube上挑出幾則比較具有代表性的演出片段
可惜沒有Paul McCartney在MTV Unplugged中的那個版本
我好奇十多年了說...

》Jesse Fuller

》Ramblin' Jack Elliott

》Peter, Paul & Mary

》Eric Clapton

從以上影片可以發現
當演出進行到間奏部分時 歌手們幾乎都會吹奏起某種樂器
看來似乎已經成了慣例
那種樂器叫"kazoo" 本地稱之為"卡祖笛"
是一種簡單而有如玩具般的傳統樂器
若想更進一步認識
可以"kazoo"或"卡祖笛"為關鍵字自行搜尋文字介紹或圖片

小學時曾經擁有過一個類似這樣的東西
(好像是在雜貨店"抽"到的 也或許記錯了)
當時我老愛拿它吹"望你早歸" 感覺特別悲戚
但畢竟那聲音談不上悅耳 吹起這種歌更是讓人涼意上心頭
每每阿嬤一聽到就會罵我 叫我別吹
哈哈...XD

卡祖笛還真的有音高勒,真神奇的小樂器,這讓我興起想要拿小朋友的玩具樂器來彈彈的想法。

說實在的
好玩歸好玩 但聲音實在不悅耳
聽久了真的會精神衰弱:p
