Poul Dissing & Benny Andersen





All the rage in Denmark in the seventies. The collaboration between literary recognised poet Benny Andersen and acid head blues singer Poul Dissing. Still great.

Will Smith - Si Bheag Si Mhor (O'Carolan)


"There is something especially lovely about an instrument you hug while you're playing it"

"Reportedly the first song written by Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) at the suggestion of Squire Reynolds. The subject was a battle between two hills controlled by rival Fairy Kings. This version on diatonic autoharp."

50 YEARS AGO: Joni Mitchell, Grace Slick, Crosby & Stills Discuss Woodstock Festival

Rather fascinating to me, maybe you too....

50 Years ago, 19 AUG 1969, some of the musicians just back from Woodstock gather for discussion/de-briefing with legendary host/interviewer Dick Cavett. Steven Stills still has mud on his pants. Grace Slick has some reflections on life. Fun. [10 mins]

Happy Tuesday!

Here's a treat for anyone who knows this from a previous life, or for anyone about to hear it for the first time. This is the song I started looking for before landing on another I still can't get out of my head. This song will do it, I'm pretty sure... Once burnt in my daily memory, still a good one.

Jerry Garcia's 'Tiger' Guitar


Here's one more souvenir from Play it Loud at New York's Met Museum... still on exhibit until end of September.

This here is the guitar used on the last song, last concert, by the Grateful Dead (with Jerry Garcia).

For DeadHeads &/or guitar aficionados, here's a link to more on that concert and this guitar, with music also, including him playing this guitar on that last song ("Box of Rain"). Guitar sounds great, although one of the vocal mics did not.... :(

I was surprised to see the guitarist and drummer from DLO3 in this group. But they jam... as one commenter said, "Rare video of men discovering fire."

Erm.. was never much of a #beatles lover, even though my parents had a large collection for me to listen to, on vinyl, as soon as I was able and trusted to use the record player, and knew the band existed. shrugs So, only after I listened to Nick Mason's BBC documentary did I understand how their sound was important. Worth listening to http://open.live.bbc.co.uk/mediaselector/6/redir/version/2.0/mediaset/audio-nondrm-download-low/proto/http/vpid/p07dg48d.mp3 - maybe do the whole series: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07dg656 #bbc #podcast #music

My first DIY musical instrument

https://photos.app.goo.gl/j5VCYHfqSHbSuQPq9

My first attempt at making a DIY instrument out of plastic shipping strapping and some toys laying around. I have lots of loops of plastic shipping strapping, so it was a logical thing for me to try and make the “string” out of even if the sound isn’t great.

The bridge is lego. This is pretty crummy, of course, but I needed to get a feel for string instrument design for a more ambitious idea.

As it is, I could add more loops and Lego bridges to make a sort of hammered koto, maybe?

Pow! Reminder of the Power of Love / to love.
It's such a pity so many parts of the world are (still) consumed with hate. :(
"Floatation is groovy" - Jimi Hendrix

I'm thinking this is the best there ever was of Hendrix, coming off of Woodstock, with his own dream band - at the Fillmore.
New Year's Eve 1970

The whole concert is amazing. If YouTube algorithm gods want to move you through the set - "Message of Love" is next - do it! :))

Power to Love - Jimi Hendrix and Band of Gypsies - New Year's Eve Concert - Fillmore East


Live Hendrix, many New Year's Eves ago, many wars ago, many hate crimes ago. "Find your self first", he sings, and then the love.

From an exchange of "great concerts introduced by Bill Graham" (70's/Fillmore East & West)
This is not only a great performance but a wonderful example of the life and tone of Bill Graham.

Here is an awfully strange pairing, by coincidence....

The song is a favorite (powerful & painful) by the Great Neil Young.

Cortez the Killer - Neil Young & Crazy Horse


While this was open on one tab, in today's news I've now seen this!
Neil Young was on the hit list of the chemical poisoners Monsanto.
He'd probably be happy about that, IMHO

Who Were Who?


Another (literal, in the literal sense of "literal") museum piece now.
Who? Yes. No, Who. The Who.... @ #MetMuseum #PlayitLoud

Here is one of the Gibson SG-Special guitars Pete Townshend ordered & used by the dozens (from Manny's Instruments, NYC), demolishing many along the way, onstage. Here's a survivor. One of the siblings to those used in the big events of The Who, 1968-1971

Fishing for Bass

(Sorry about that!) This instrument is a Portuguese Rajão from the late 19th century, made from wood and gut.

According to the (non-rock) museum exhibit sign, "This folk instrument from the ... island of Madeira typically had five strings, but this example has only four.... The instrument was popular with Portuguese sailors, who took it around world [and]introduced the rajão to native Hawaiians... [It]inspired the creation of the ukulele.

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:
