White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane


One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

Who are You? Who.


I saw them perform this live shortly after they'd recorded it. Honestly I was ambivalent at best, having in the past seen performances of Tommy, and the Live at Leeds classic. I wanted Pinball Wizard & Summertime Blues. Years later this seems like good ol' "new" Who.

Talking about some great bands that sort of got lost in the mix of history. With some great songs, too.
Here's a great example. Not only the song I was looking for, but an album section, so pure and such a great sample. Enjoy.

MOODY BLUES: "In The Beginning"- "Lovely To See You"- "Dear Diary"- w/Lyrics


In the Beginning

I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.
[Establishment:] Of course you are my bright little star,
I've miles
And miles
Of files
Pretty files of your forefather's fruit
And now to suit our
Great computer,
You're magnetic ink.

[Inner Man:] I'm more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.


It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave.
And keep on thinking free...

Lovely to See You
Lovely to see you again my friend
Walk along with me to the next bend.....

...

Dear Diary,

It's over, will tomorrow be the same?
I know that they're really not to blame
If they weren't so blind then surely they'd see
There's a much better way for them to be
Inside me, yours truly, dear Diary

As the leaves begin to ...

Turn, Turn, Turn


As people celebrate Rosh Hashanah 5780, Harvest time 2019, Thanksgiving(s), Halloween/All Saints, and New Year's 2020....
Enjoy it all. Turn things around, turn the tide, turn it up....

LYRICS (Song by Pete Seeger, performance by the Byrds)

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together
To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing
To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late

Money for nothing..... "I want my MTV!"

Money for Nothing - Dire Straits


LYRICS
Now look at them yo-yo's, that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
See the little faggot with the earring and the make up
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama she got it stickin' in the camera man
We could have some-
And he's up there, what's that?
Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin', get your chicks for free
We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we gotta move these color TV's
Listen here
Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' chicks for free
Money for nothin' get your chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
Look at that, look at that
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Money for nothin' chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy money for nothin' (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
Easy, easy money for nothin' (I want my, I want my MTV)
Chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
That ain't workin'
Money for nothing, chicks for free
Money for nothing, chicks for free

Maybe the times - and a post about drive-by shootings and social upheaval. A drive-by music memory - a song (and great band) I've heard little of for probably years...

So... here's something from my "swamp driving" YouTube playlist. Lyrics in the video.

The Doors - Roadhouse Blues - “Best Version” - Live in N.Y. (1970)


Yeah, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer.
Well, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer.
Future’s uncertain and the end is always near.

Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll — all night long.

Last night I posted a song by Poco (precursor to Buffalo Springfield) which went from country to their bubbly, keyboard-fun high energy style, and back again, "Anyway bye bye"... If you have them, grab some headphones. Good audio, including bass line. 🎧

Poco - Nobody's Fool / El Tonto de Nadie, Regresa (1970)


This album was an example of fine audio recording as well as a unique album among early "long-form" tracks on a vinyl LP. And this song here... it was the one that captivated me on many levels - the song as a whole, lyrics, amazing keyboard/synth sound, and dynamic range. Plus toe-tapping rhythm not unlike Santana's band to come. So "anyway, hello/goodbye"... for now, traveling soon with little broadband and sometimes no access, (nature photo trip) so... mostly going to limit online music posting or listening for a bit.

1-2 -3 Kapow!! One more bit of Traffic...

Rock & Roll Stew


As the name says, more a rock & roll stew than jazz/folk fusion. During an energetic period.

This is probably the the song which I heard Traffic play the most, live, among many concerts in their later days. Earlier it was Dear Mr. Fantasy, which I've now heard re-mastered, and that's nice too. Might post when I'm back in the wired world of traffic, steel & glass.

All sorts of strange coincidences today walking/shopping in my own neighborhood...
The first was running into my Congressman (and chair of the Judiciary Committee in the House). Much respect for him!
Secondly, approaching the register with organic veggies and NY bagels in hand, this song played overhead. Been a long time.

Dazed and Confused - Jimmy Page and his "Dragon" Guitar

Winner (guessed whose this was): @tomgrz :))

This is the Telecaster (1959; hand-painted by Jimmy Page, 1967)
Catalog Notes: Ash body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, two single-coil pickups.

"Jimmy Page received this guitar from Jeff Beck and used it for his 1967 work with the Yardbirds, playing it with a violin bow on experimental live versions of 'Dazed and Confused'. After the Yardbirds disbanded, he used it to record all of Led Zeppelin (1968)"

Here's a classic concert clip where you can see & hear it in use:

Timely, i-Ching pull from a rescued "tape"..... and a great album probably little known. Sting, ripe and pithy. Lyrics below.

We Work The Black Seam | Sting

LYRICS

This place has changed for good
Your economic theory said it would
It's hard for us to understand
We can't give up our jobs the way we should

Our blood has stained the coal
We tunneled deep inside the nation's soul
We matter more than pounds and pence
Your economic theory makes no sense

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

The seam lies underground
Three million years of pressure packed it down
We walk through ancient forest lands
And light a thousand cities with our hands

Your dark satanic mills
Have made redundant all our mining skills
You can't exchange a six inch band
For all the poisoned streams in Cumberland

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

Our conscious lives run deep
You cling onto your mountain while we sleep
This way of life is part of me
The is no price so only let me be

And should the children weep
The turning world will sing their souls to sleep
When you have sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage
They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean
Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together

Life of Illusion

Ripple (on Still Water) - Grateful Dead


LYRICS:
If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
Perhaps they're better left unsung.
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
If your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain,
That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

You who choose, to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.

La dee da da da, La da da da da, Da da da, Da da, Da da da da da

Another very special treat for King Crimson fans...Brand New! (Oct 2019)


Part of their 50th Anniversary Tribute / Celebration
King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man (Morgan Studios) [50th Anniversary | Released 2019 ]

The song itself starts at 2:29 and is nearly 7 minutes in length. But for fans, the 'inside story' / intro is very interesting!
One of the most-loved songs among fans, and iconic King Crimson. A song for our times too, some people say.

Check out any list of rock's all time greatest drummers, and there's a pretty good chance that the name Ginger Baker will appear at or near the top of every one of those lists.
Virtually every rock drummer has been influenced by Ginger Baker whether they realize it or not. And without his prowess on the drums, the likes of Bonham, Paice, Ward, Palmer, Peart , Van Halen and lee would not have played the way they did. In fact, they may not have even played at all.
RIP, until we meet in the "White Room". #Cream #ClassicRock
 
Here's something new for King Crimson fans....
Part of a 50th Anniversary Tribute / Celebration.

Not to worry, the spoken intro gives way to the music, for non-fans of long spoken intros (but... it's interesting)
A lovely recording, audio wise. And iconic King Crimson. For those not interested in band history, the song itself starts at 2:22.

Post-script to the passing of Ginger Baker - Pt. 2 (A toast)

Reminded of other legends still out there performing, from the Rolling Stones, Paul and Ringo, to Jon Anderson, as well as Simon and Garfunkel, several of Jefferson Airplane (Jorma esp.), and others. Some are performing full-tilt, others have left the road but record &/or play occasionally, close to home. Some are living quiet lives. To them all, let's lift our glass, and drink to the hard-working players:

Here's one from a very literate and music-wise window-washer! (Van the Man!)

WASHING WINDOWS (Van Morrison)


Lyrics
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street
Got in my nose
As we carried our ladders down the street
With the wrought-iron gate rows
I went home and listened to Jimmie Rodgers in my lunch-break
Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner
And went straight back to work.
Oh, Sam was up on top
And I was on the bottom with the V
We went for lemonade and Paris buns
At the shop and broke for tea
I collected from the lady
And I cleaned the fanlight inside-out
I was blowing saxophone on the weekend
In that down joint.
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows (number a hundred and thirty-six)
I heard Leadbelly and Blind Lemon
On the street where I was born
Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee,
Muddy Waters singin' "I'm A Rolling Stone"
I went home and read my Christmas Humphreys' book on Zen
Curiosity killed the cat
Kerouac's "Dharma Bums" and "On The Road"
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows

Lyrics
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street
Got in my nose
As we carried our ladders down the street
With the wrought-iron gate rows
I went home and listened to Jimmie Rodgers in my lunch-break
Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner
And went straight back to work.
Oh, Sam was up on top
And I was on the bottom with the V
We went for lemonade and Paris buns
At the shop and broke for tea
I collected from the lady
And I cleaned the fanlight inside-out
I was blowing saxophone on the weekend
In that down joint.
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows (number a hundred and thirty-six)
I heard Leadbelly and Blind Lemon
On the street where I was born
Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee,
Muddy Waters singin' "I'm A Rolling Stone"
I went home and read my Christmas Humphreys' book on Zen
Curiosity killed the cat
Kerouac's "Dharma Bums" and "On The Road"
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows

After the storm, all is quiet, and "I shall search my very soul".... and then,

Listen to the Lion (Van the Man)


LISTEN TO THE LION (Van Morrison)

And all my love come down
All my love come tumblin' down
All my love come tumblin' down
All my love come tumblin' down
Oh, listen listen
To the lion
Oh, listen listen listen
To the lion
Inside of me
Oh, oh, oh
And I shall search my soul
I shall search my very soul
And I shall search my very soul
I shall search my very soul
For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
Inside of me
Oh, oh, yeah
And all my tears have flown
All my tears like water flown
And all my tears like water flown
All my tears like a water flown
For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
Inside of me
Listen to the lion
(14x)

And we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed
sailed to Caledonia
And we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
Away from Denmark
Way up to Caledonia
Away from Denmark
Way up to Caledonia
And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
All around the world
And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
Looking for a brand new start
And we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed
All around the world, a brand new start
Looking for a brand new start
Looking for a brand new start
Looking for a brand new start
And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed
Away from the Golden Gate
Way up to the New York City

Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven Live


I know there are many many concert vids of this song being performed, many good ones, and Led Zep fans have heard many of them.
But this is new to me (and YouTube, relatively)... And this is the best I've seen/heard, performance & quality-wise. Enjoy!
Thanks, @Mary Popins

SOFT PARADE (The Doors)


Lyrics are right in the video, English/Spanish.
Following some "Strange Days" (great album). From 1969, post-Woodstock. (Fifty $%@'n years ago!)

This is one of their amazing long-form songs which is a favorite of mine, along with so many others.
Happy soft parade into the weekend!
