"I mean this game, called 'go insane'... "
Well, there sure is plenty of that about. In high places. Trickling down...

I just came across this excellent concert take. I'd posted this 8 months ago but bcs of #evilgoogle it's now gone from YT.

The Doors: Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl


Here we go.... "and the rain falls gently on the town and over the heads of all of us... nervous hill-dwellers.... reptiles abounding..." Seems like an apt description, today too (maybe more so). Classic show, and a great one if you've never seen a Doors concert.
Almost exactly 52 years ago to the day! Wow... time flies. Music lives on and as the Kinks sang, "legends never really die".

Summertime Sunset (after the hail storm)


I can't say how much Sahara Dust is filtering into my sunset, but actually, the grey here does seem "dustier" than normal.

The sun returned in time for sunset. It has stopped hailing. So... time to cue up Allan Sherman's

Hello Muddha Hello Faddha...

Hello Muddah, hello Faddah
Here I am at Camp Grenada
Camp is very entertaining
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining
I went hiking with Joe Spivey
He developed poison ivy
You remember Leonard Skinner
He got Ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner
All the counsellors hate the waiters
And the lake has alligators
And the head coach wants no sissies
So he reads to us from something called Ulysses
Now I don't want this should scare ya
But my bunkmate has Malaria
You remember Jeffery Hardy
They're about to organize a searching party
Take me home, oh Muddah, Faddah
Take me home, I hate Grenada
Don't leave me out in the forest where
I might get eaten by a bear
Take me home, I promise I will
Not make noise, or mess the house with
Other boys, oh please don't make me stay
I've been here one whole day
Dearest Fadduh, darling Muddah
How's my precious little bruddah
Let me come home if you miss me
I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me
Wait a minute, it's stopped hailing
Guys are swimming, guys are sailing
Playing baseball, gee that's bettah
Muddah, Faddah kindly disregard this letter

Shot into consciousness of nowhere, frozen in time & memory since childhood…

A wish for all of us. ❤ 😷

“98.6” *


****Song title - refers to healthy human temperature, no fever: 98.6 ℉ = 37℃***

A golden-oldie, sweet, and so appropriate for a time of pandemic, it just re-appeared from ancient buried memories.
Be mindful, safe, loving, and blessed.

Four months ago, to mark the passing of this rock/jazz legend, I posted his intimate film biography, "Beware of Mr. Baker"

Fast forward... Here now is a tribute to Ginger Baker from Eric Clapton & Roger Waters. Just this week!

Sunshine of Your Love, Tribute to Ginger Baker, Eventim Apollo, February 17 2020


Before the concert you see they showed a clip from that film, which amply illustrated his foul disposition and violent tendencies,
along with his quest for jazz drumming greatness, with several clips of him competing with other legends in battles of the drums.
“He was a scoundrel, but I loved him and he loved me…I feel blessed.”
-Eric Clapton
Beware of Mr. Baker (film, 46mins) is at https://youtu.be/josXy65dQI8

An i-Ching find, but... any time is a good time for this. For the song, for the action.

Get Together - Youngbloods, 1969 (Woodstock)


LYRICS:
Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
I said, come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Right now
Right now

Time, time, time....


Here's a classic - which has been covered nicely in several ways - but this is the original. With lyrics in the video.

The good news: The long nights are now getting shorter, the days longer... as we enter

A hazy shade of winter

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.

Joni Mitchell - Tributes at 75

This is Joni Mitchell's Ibanez arch top guitar, George Benson Signature Model - used in 1979 live album Shadows and Light and also on the Refuge World Tour (1983).

Reminded of her recent 75th birthday tributes, as tonight U.S. Public Television is (re)broadcasting a tribute to towering figure of 60's/70's music, her angelic voice coupled with poetic and compositional brilliance. So nice to see her still with us and appearing in a better state than has been seen/reported recently.

The exhibit had drawn some scrutiny about the relatively limited space afforded to the women pioneers of rock. There is some representation here, and certainly Joni Mitchell is one who deserves acclaim. Joan Jet's guitar is here too, Lady Gaga's piano, a few other icons (but not Joplin, or many others who deserve historical recognition). Still, for one traveling exhibit, borrowing from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's collection, and personal collections and estates of the rock legends, well... the exhibit is massive, and rocks!

Photo is mine. ( #playitloud exhibit at the #metmuseum #NYC #Summer2019)

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

Double (John Lennon) Fantasy - sort of, kind of.
A bit of music fun and nostalgia, via John Lennon - 9/28/74

I've recalled and joked for years about some of John Lennon's surprise appearances on New York FM radio shows, just to talk, or to play DJ. I've mentioned his particularly funny weather forecasts.

Well... it only took me 45 years, the invention of digital online sharing, and luck, to find some tapes... But... Here's a small but real sample, quick & dirty recording (no way to easily do more now). A very short, very favorite bit of weather plus some music history.

PART 1: The Music - John Lennon went through a stack of his favorite rock influences, in an impromptu visit to WNEW Radio on 9/28/1974. He also spoke about the Beatles and all the breakup-period angst (~ If we ever did get back together it would have to be on Dark Horse Records).

Lennon went deep into 50's music and a bit newer. In a "What" set, as I'd call it, he offered up Ray Charles' "What I Say" as an inspiration (and you can hear its echo in a lot of early Hamburg-days Beatles sets). Forward in time he got to what he called "son of Beatles", Electric Light Orchestra (along with Badfinger, maybe), Lennon spun "Showdown" and then noted that of course that was derivative of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On?"

So, short of giving the literal show (though I will transcribe bits of it to introduce some songs, perhaps), I'm going to put the clip up as a comment, once it's done wrestling its way onto YouTube (momentarily I hope).

So meanwhile, keep cool, think cool, and transport back to 1974, New York, as John Lennon shares some cool music. After the songs is a very short break, and John does the funniest weather forecast (and most accurate) I've ever heard Standby. Meanwhile,...

This song was described by John Lennon as "a beautiful combination of "I Heard it Through the Grapevine", "Lightening Strikes Again", and little bits of 'Walrus'. And coming up next: the weather forecast. (Yes, for you too!)

Showdown - ELO

Echo in the Canyon - Cont'd

As the clock runs out on legal "spring cleaning"... Another long-open tab to be shared and shut.

I and others shared a few reactions, positive and not, about this music documentary. (Notably, the surgical removal/absence of Joni Mitchell, at the heart of it all, is inexcusable, I agree.) That said, I don't think I posted this article - which I've kept open with the intention of getting to all the links. Some goodies included. Many more not even noted. There's a lot more depth to "the canyon".

Song for the Day

Things We Said Today - Beatles


Released around the time G+ announced our demise. This is an official (HQ) version from the Beatles, "here to stay"
Timely.

LYRICS:
You say you will love me
If I have to go
You'll be thinking of me
Somehow I will know
Someday when I'm lonely
Wishing you weren't so far away
Then I will remember
The things we said today
You say you'll be mine, girl
'Til the end of time
These days such a kind girl
Seems so hard to find
Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today
Me, I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is luck
And, though we may be blind
Love is here to stay
And that's enough
To make you mine, girl
Be the only one
Love me all the time, girl
We'll go on and on
Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today
Me, I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is luck
And, though we may be blind
Love is here to stay
And that's enough
To make you mine, girl
Be the only one
Love me all the time, girl
We'll go on and on
Someday when we're dreaming
Deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
The things we said today
