"It's All Meat" as written by and Danny/burdon Mcculloch....
The sound of Muddy Waters and the voice of Jimmy Reed
When Ray Charles moans
It's all meat on that same bone
It's all meat on just one bone

When Miles Davis blows his horn,
When Ravi Shankar plays
It's all down home
But it's all meat on the same bone

It's all meat on just one bone
When Erkel Darbies walks,
When Eric Clapton talks
There's only one place it can come from

And it's all meat on the same bone
All meat, same bone,
Do it!

Don't you listen to none of them jive hip squares
Try to tell you where the blues is from
'Cause the blues is from the whole wide world
Deep within the souls of men.
When Muhammad Ali gets mad
When an Irishman drinks

It's all for a woman
It's all for his home
It's all meat on the same bone
It's all meat, same bone
It's all meat, same bone

Same bone, same thing
It's all soul, It's all meat?

    General CommentI loved when Eric underwent his Damascene conversion and threw himself fully into the whole San Franciscan love, bells and beads thing...and this was someone who looked like the archetypal grizzled Geordie shipyard worker!

    This song is a great spot of evangelizing on Eric's part about the 'oneness' of music. In Eric's eyes, be it soul, blues, rock, jazz or Indian music...it is all derived from the same source and music transcends limitations imposed by labels, so ultimately music is 'all meat from the same bone'.

    I love the line 'when Clapton talks'. I am certain Eric B. is referring to the fact that Clapton had/has the ability to make his guitar 'talk' inasmuch that it spoke on his behalf with more clarity than mere words could ever hope to do justice to.

    ...and I still have no idea who Erkel Darbies is and what he was doing on his travels!
