Dick Jensen - The Writer album
Tuesday, 31 October 2017. Dick jensen "The writer" (1979). Oh me, oh me I hate the morning after the night before I know I can't take it anymore I know I've said it once or twice before I hate the morning after the night before. These bloodshot eyes now realize those Mai Tais were the devil in disguise If I could only find a way to stop this pile-driving pain I promise that I'd never, ever, do it again Do it again, do it again.
The Writer" was probably released sometimes in late 1979 on Giant Records, which I strongly suspect was nothing else but another one-off label created by Dick Jensen, just like the previous Record Club of Honolulu. I lean toward the late 1979 release date because on the spine is written "(C) 1979 Giant Records", even if the catalogue number assigned to this album is GRS 1980. My opinion is that the album was printed at the end of 1979 but it was given that catalogue number to make it look more fresh when it was first marketed during the next months.
Dick Jensen born in April 9, 1942, died at the age of 64 on June 21. 2006 Dick Jenson seems to have had a strange recording career. He cut loads of covers: "Mr Pitiful", "Since I Fell For You" & "I Don't Want to Cry". He also recorded a single for local Tom Moffatt's Bluewater label and released an album on his own label. His career took an unexpected turn in 1983 when he was arrested on drug distribution charges. He pleaded guilty to a cocaine charge and received five years' probation. Jensen subsequently dedicated his life and musical talents to the church. Sites: th. onoluluadvertiser.
