Something different... slow and sweet. From the album "Silent Sky".
A little difficult to pronounce - but easy to listen and share. ;)

Daiqing Tana - Ongmanibamai

Been a while since listening &/or sharing this. Always feel a wave of hope & nostalgia for a better world here.

Meanwhile....

Maybe I'm Amazed


(Context: The Beatles had recently broken up]
It's Friday in many places.... TGIF - Happy Weekend!

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. Happy #tuesdayafternoon

Remember this charming family outside their home in France? They're ba-ack! Indoors, older now (11 & 8).
Now a song in English, after the French and German hits.

My Baby Just Cares For Me - Isaac, Nora, and Nicolás


I hope this does not endanger more German forests, with constant singing, @Harry Göhde :))

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

Hoe-down time again. Via a colleague, "from Russia with love" - but from neighboring Finland. (Nice to see Russians enjoying this.)

Rock History Trivia Quiz, Part 1


So... anyone want to test your knowledge of 60's-80's rock history, particularly the instruments used by the biggest names in rock?

I took quite a few photos of the immense collection at The Met's current exhibit, #playitloud - Play it loud! I'll post a few as I sift through them, from Chuck Berry to Beatles and Cream, Rolling Stones, and The Who, Hendrix, and Prince. Lady Gaga too.

I'll post some music pairings before long, featuring music hits with the given guitar or sitar or whatever. Warmup.

Test item was: Roots Rhodes, drums and mic (impossible; I just liked the image). Enjoy. If you want to follow/join, the hashtag may help come back to this. #playitloud First one might be easy. (I can give hints if not...)
# 1 WHOSE GUITAR AM I??

Time


It's everything - all, nothing, or the journey in between.
So.... It's time now I share my last music discovery for this week.

There are many songs, poems, musings and writings on this.
Here's The Kinks, and Ray Davies' perspective, on time.

The Kinks - Time Song (Official Lyric Video)


"It's standing behind us and looking down on us"...
Enjoy the times and time.

Ahh ... I still have one or two last open-tabs-of-music-to-watch-when-I-can and it's the weekend ahead, so time to clean the desktop.

Short version: The YT algorithm gods took me here, and it's O.K.

I'll See You in My Dreams - From Woody Allen: Sweet and Lowdown


From Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris) to this, via DJ YouTube. Not too bad! Finally Google doing something clever for mere consumers.
Happy Weekend. Will join you soon, Europe and Eastward. See you in my dreams!

Happy Weekend!

Apologies if I posted before but I don't think so. Cleaning open tabs and this was where YouTube took me from Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris film soundtrack. He loves clarinet. (I failed miserably at it as a child, I'm just recalling). Stay cool & calm! :))) Sez...

Last of this music set for now... BUT.... Speaking of dinosaurs and historic turning points (60's, Beatles, Woodstock, e.g.)....
The Who was in that mix, with Tommy ("rock opera") and Sgt. Pepper, Pet Sounds, _Beggars Banquet, Blue, Are You Experienced, Wheels of Fire, so many more... but many dinosaurs will know these musical/cultural powerhouses

One more tribute to Jefferson Airplane here, maybe their Rubber Soul experience with Crown of Creation . Recording was evolving too, due to all the above and evolution of multi-track sound recording. OK, INTRO: This song needs to be really listened to, preferably in headphones or "on a stereo". It is, I will say, having bought it on DVD and owning it on vinyl and tape, the most incredible new experience of a beloved song I've had, the digital re-mastering. Listen to the sounds of Lather's leather-chair creak, as he contemplates becoming a dinosaur himself. (Beatles: "Don't trust anyone over 30" - Remember). I listened to a few versions online, most lacking in full dynamic range. This is pretty good, but I still didn't full get Jack's booming bass with my laptop speakers. With headphones, now, it is there, I'm happy to see, kicking in the measure before Grace Slick does. A good on. One of my very favorites, period. Feeling old? Young? Philosophical? Here you go. Enjoy. Lyrics are on the YT page but I'll stick them below too, so it's easy to to read while listening if you're not at the YT page. Ready? Tune in, turn up the volume, and check this out, 1st time or re-visit.

Lather (Crown of Creation)


LATHER (Lyrics)

Lather was thirty years old today
They took away all of his toys
His mother sent newspaper clippings to him
About his old friends who'd stopped being boys
There was Harwitz E. Green, just turned thirty-three
His leather chair waits at the bank
And Seargent Dow Jones, twenty-seven years old
Commanding his very own tank
But Lather still finds it a nice thing to do
To lie about nude in the sand
Drawing pictures of mountains that look like bumps
And thrashing the air with his hands

But wait, oh Lather's productive you know
He produces the finest of sound
Putting drumsticks on either side of his nose
Snorting the best licks in town
But that's all over

Lather was thirty years old today
And Lather came foam from his tongue
He looked at me eyes wide and plainly said
Is it true that I'm no longer young?
And the children call him famous
What the old men call insane
And sometimes he's so nameless
That he hardly knows which game to play
Which words to say
And I should have told him, no, you're not old
And I should have let him go on, smiling, baby wide

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.

White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane

And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all

One other Beatles favorite which I was reminded of after posting/re-listening to "If I Fell", This is the other song which springs to mind as having an indelible impact on me, with the simple but bone-touching vocal harmonies and a minor tones in the chords:

"Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today"

"Sweet Creek Suite"
Say that 10 times fast (like "black bug's blood"!)
But the title popped into my head after 20+ years, so it worked.
Great song here, one of the best ever to begin or end a music set.

What Time is It? Time to Organize!


Or, in the Vernacular, it's about numb-D-tree minutes past the hour of Zzzz
Maybe time to wake up? Because "all the seats are occupied" at the table where they frame the game.

More images from the Spur, Highline, and "Vessel" to come. But here's a sampler, and nice sound track. A treat if you've not heard it.
Some great sounds, from blazing guitar to 'human passions' and the genius of Vangelis.

JONI MITCHELL: Night Ride Home
First time posting "here", but an annual post for me, over the years, on #googleplus

Night Ride Home - Joni Mitchell


My favorite 4th of July/Summertime song, probably.

Listen loud in a quiet spot, and enjoy the crickets!

LYRICS:
Once in a while
In a big blue moon
There comes a night like this
Like some surrealist
Invented this fourth of July
Night ride home
Hula girls
And caterpillar tractors in the sand
The ukulele man
The fireworks
This 4th of July
Night ride home
I love the man beside me
We love the open road
No phones till Friday
Far from the overkill
Far from the overload
Back at the bar
The band tears down
But out here in the headlight beams
The silver power lines
Gleam
On this fourth of July
Night ride home
Round the curve
And a big dark horse
Red taillights on his hide
Is keeping right alongside
Rev for stride
Fourth of July
Night ride home
I love the man beside me
We love the open road
No phones till Friday
Far from the undertow
Far from the overload
Once in awhile
In a big blue moon
There comes a night like this
Like some surrealist
Invented this fourth of July
Night ride home
Night ride home
Night ride home
On a night ride home
On a night ride home
Night ride home

(crick-crick, crick-crick, crick-crick)

Bird on a Wire


Take that, Amazing Wallendas! We do it every day! :))
City birds.

THE sound track, clearly ... drumroll:

Bird on a Wire - Leonard Cohen

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee
If I, if I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

For like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, "you must not ask for so much"
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, "hey, why not ask for more?"
Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
