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!

Haven't discovered new songs recently, as in "remember enough to look them up afterwards" - but when I do it often is by FM radio in the car, our NPR is good for such things. Or I might just follow #music for serendipity, or read what y'all may post. ;-)

Some time ago I came across old Genesis albums, "Selling England by the Pound" in particular, so here you go:

I do love the long-lived British band 'Traffic'.

Abstract/short version: Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory was an interesting album. And here's the title song. Wow!

Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory - Traffic


I've just taken a bit of wayback machine ride when I dug out the original (LP/"vinyl") album. Thanks to a version not quite the same as on the US LP version, I've taken a look at this album anew.

Here's a few album notes: (as I look at the actual 'album')
Traffic's best known alumni are Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, and Chris Wood. This album came out in 1973 on Island Records.

Oh, and because - like Rod Stewart sang - every picture tells a story...
Here's what the physical "album" looked like, a standout among "records", with diagonally-cut corners.

Enjoy. This song is what I heard kicking off dozens of live performances - and on NY FM radio, a lot of both. (I almost remember).

And now for something completely different (and new, too) ... 🎵

ANA ALCAIDE: DIOSA LUOLAIEN - goddess Luolaien


"Inspired by one of the 'three stories of the Deang belts', from the book 'Legends of the Goddess Mother and other myths of goddesses and women of the peoples of China' - End of the Doranda Age of women. Chinese Legends- Pedro Ceinos Arcones. "Long ago I lived in the place where heaven and earth communicate a goddess named Luolaien. One day during the antifonal singing meetings he met a young Deang, immediately the love arose between them and they got married. But this goddess had the ability to fly, and as soon as she started living with her husband, she flew away from the village of the Deang, to return shortly after. So three times he flew back again and again. Her husband, fearing she would leave and not return, He asked his father: “My wife is not at home for a long time and she immediately flies away. How can I make it stay longer? ”If father said:“ Braid a belt and give it to him to put it on. From then on he will not be able to fly. ”The son followed his father's instructions and braided a beautiful belt that he gave to his wife. When Goddess Luolaien put it on, she couldn't fly anymore. Since then the Deang girls wear a colored belt around their waist. "Follow Ana Alcaide: When Goddess Luolaien put it on, she couldn't fly anymore. Since then the Deang girls wear a colored belt around their waist. "Follow Ana Alcaide: When Goddess Luolaien put it on, she couldn't fly anymore. Since then the Deang girls wear a colored belt around their waist." - YouTube description

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.

Speaking of John Lennon....


A belated "Happy Birthday" tribute... this seen last week at the Imagine mosaic at Strawberry Fields (NYC).
Yes indeed,** "we all shine on"....**

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin' to do
It's up to you, yeah you
Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna look you right in the face
Better get yourself together darlin'
Join the human race
How in the world you gonna see
Laughin' at fools like me
Who in the hell d'you think you are
A super star
Well, right you are
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Ev'ryone come on
Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Ev'ryone you meet
Why in the world are we here
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on earth are you there
When you're ev'rywhere
Come and get your share
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Come on and on and on on on
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on

Yeah we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Song for our times (appropriately perhaps, the "Clash" version).
Hopefully, in these times. law may once again prevail, when it is so egregiously violated, laws of lands, laws of morality & nature.

Strange Days Indeed...

Nobody Told Me - John Lennon


LYRICS:

Everybody's talking and no one says a word
Everybody's making love and no one really cares
There's Nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs
Always something happening and nothing going on
There's always something happening cooking and nothing in the pot
They're starving back in China so finish what you got
They're starving back in China so finish what you got
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed
strange days indeed
Everybody's runnin' and no one makes a move
Everyone's a winner
and no one seems to lose
There's a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu
Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground
Everybody's crying…

Tchaikovsky: "February" ('Carnival') from "The Seasons' op.37a


https://youtu.be/onxe4g3PV-w

From Tchaikovsky's 'The Seasons' (or 'The Months'), a set of piano pieces for each month of the year, we hear 'February' ('Carnival') in a vivid orchestral arrangement. In this music, Tchaikovsky depicts the merry Shrovetide Festival in Russia when winter is bidding farewell and spring is welcomed in. Neeme Jarvi conducts the Detroit Symphony in Alexander Gauk's orchestration.

Tchaikovsky’s "Variations on a Rococo Theme,* Op. 33.


https://youtu.be/mgnbz45iBew

As long as there are children who can play music like this one, there is a hope for the humanity.
**Philipp Schupelius *(13 years, Germany) got a scholarship from Cello Akademie Rutesheim as one of the best performers of all ages at “Bundeswettbewerb 2016”. He performes a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme, Op. 33. Live recording 03.11.2016 in Rutesheim (Cello Akademie Rutesheim). Violoncello: Philipp Schupelius (13 years, Germany) Piano: Keiko Tamura.
*The Variations on a Rococo Theme, Op. 33, for cello and orchestra was the closest Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky ever came to writing a full concerto for cello and orchestra. The style was inspired by Mozart, Tchaikovsky’s role model, and makes it clear that Tchaikovsky admired the Classical style very much. However, the Theme is not Rococo in origin, but actually an original theme in the Rococo style.

Pyotr Tchaikovsky: Andante Cantabile."


One of the melody gems of ** Pyotr Tchaikovsky: Andante Cantabile" for Cello and string orchestra.** Performed with a great expressiveness by cellist Han Na Chang, with Philharmonic Sinfonietta Berlin. The melancholic Andante cantabile, 2nd movement of String quartet op.11, which has become famous in its own right, was based on a folk song the composer heard at his sister’s house at Kamenka whistled by a house painter. When the quartet was performed at a tribute concert for Leo Tolstoy, the author was said to have been brought to tears by this movement. “…Tolstoy, sitting next to me and listening to the Andante of my First Quartet, burst into tears". (Wikipedia)

Secret Violin Concerto from « Swan Lake/Le Lac des Cygnes » (1876)


https://youtu.be/5rqsu8UnZVQ

Farewell to January with a hidden gem: One of the most undervalued features of Swan Lake are P. Tchaikovsky’s violin solos. These gems are not your run-of-the-mill solos. Instead of the usual brief dances that can be as short as 47 seconds, the three violin pieces in Swan Lake are, on average, about six minutes. They are very similar to operatic arias and duets. Tchaikovsky’s solos are lyrical, technically difficult, and melodically complex — only they’re just sung by violins rather than sopranos.
Written sometime between 1875-76, Swan Lake premiered about two years before the composer’s Violin Concerto in D Major was first performed. It begs the question of whether Tchaikovsky was experimenting with the violin to see what he could do later with a concerto.
But the result suggests he intended far more than a mere foray. In the case of Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, the violins served a very good practical purpose. According to Boston Ballet Music Director and Principal Conductor Jonathan McPhee, the composition of Swan Lake’s violin solos marked a momentous point in ballet and musical history, indicating the time in which a violin — not a piano like we generally see in the ballet studio today — was used for musical accompaniment.
Due to the choreographic and musical genius, the violin pieces contribute a unique effect to their respective scenes.
The first, an andante-allegro pas de deux, was originally scored for Act I, but it was moved to Act III as the “Black Swan Pas de Deux” in an 1895 revision.
Act II features the “White Swan Pas de Deux,” another andante-allegro dance that develops into a stunning violin duet. It is far more tender and romantic than the previous section, taking place during Siegfried and Odette’s first encounter.
The third solo, which appears during Act III’s character dances, is a vivacious Russian dance (regrettably, omitted from most current productions of Swan Lake, including Boston’s).
Secret Violin Concerto from « Swan Lake/Le Lac des Cygnes » (1876)
Violoniste : Yuri Torchinsky - Dir : Evgeny Svetlanov
1- Andante. Allegro (5.56)
2- Andante. Andante non troppo. Allegro (7.44)
3- Moderato. Andante semplice. Allegro vivo. Presto (4.40)
