Lou Reed - Sweet Jane


By far the best version of this song I know.



#music #70s

Standin' on a corner, Suitcase in my hand. Jack's in his car, says to Jane, who's in her vest, Me, babe, I'm in a rock n' roll band. Ridin' in a Stutz Bearcat, Jim, Those were different times. And the poets studied rows of verse, And all the ladies rolled their eyes Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane Now, Jack, he is a banker, And Jane, she is a clerk. And the both of them are saving up their money... Then they come home from work. Sittin' by the fire... Radio just played a little classical music for you kids, The march of the wooden soldiers And you can hear Jack say Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane Some people like to go out dancing And other people, (like us) they gotta work And there's always some evil mothers They'll tell you life is full of dirt. And the women never really faint, And the villans always blink their eyes. And the children are the only ones who blush. 'Cause life is just to die. But, anyone who has a heart Wouldn't want to turn around and break it And anyone who ever played the part He wouldn't want to turn around and fake it Sweet Jane

One more for the road
After all the Traffic, and celebration of the 50-year anniversary of John Barleycorn, not to be consumed while driving...
Another legendary band and singer/musician, another lesser-known live concert, this from a mere 43-years ago. :))

Jethro Tull: Minstrel in the Gallery (07/31/1976 - LIVE)


Closest thing to "minstrels" I have handy - #myphoto More/mas Cuba: Cuba

The cosmos seems to be saying it's time for a tribute to Leslie. So... Here's one, with memories of many a 70's rock festival:

Leslie West & Mountain: Mississipi Queen

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.

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.

Ab-so-lutely. Just listened to this again. A very ripe time for him.

Here goes. The heart of Van Morrison, for me at least at the time, and his fans... The title track of his 1972 LP album.

St. Dominic's Preview - Van Morrison


LYRICS:
Shammy cleaning all the windows
Singing songs about Edith Piaf's soul
And I hear blue strains of no regredior
Across the street from Cathedral Notre Dame
Meanwhile back in San Francisco
We're trying hard to make this whole thing blend
As we sit upon this jagged
Storey block, with you my friend
And it's a long way to Buffalo
It's a long way to Belfast city too
And I'm hoping the choice won't blow the hoist
'Cause this town, they bit off more than they can chew.
As we gaze out on, as we gaze out on
As we gaze out on, as we gaze out on

All the orange boxes are scattered
Against the Safeway Supermarket in the rain
And everybody feels so determined
Not to feel anyone else's pain
No one's making no commitments
To anybody but themselves
Talkin' behind closed doorways
Tryin' to get outside, get outside of empty shells
And for every cross cuttin' country corner, country corner
For every Hank Williams railroad train that cried
And all the chains, badges, flags and emblems
And every strain on brain and every eye
As we gaze out on, as we gaze out on
As we gaze out on, as we gaze out on

And the restaurant tables are completely covered
The record company has paid out for the wine
You got everything in the world you ever wanted
Right about now your face should wear a smile
That's the way it all should happen
When you're in, when you're in the state you're in
You've got your pen and notebook ready
I think it's about time, time for us to begin
And meanwhile we're over in a 52nd Street apartment
Socializing with the wino few
Just to be hip and get wet with the jet set
But they're flying too high to see my point of view
As we gaze out on, as we gaze out on
As we gaze out on, as we gaze out on

See them freedom marching
Out on the street, freedom marching

Out in the street
Look at the man
Turn around
Come back, come back
Turn around
Look at the man
Says hold on

Saint Dominic's Preview
Says hold me in

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

Think anyone else can belt it out like this? :)) Edgar's featured, along with Joe Walsh and others, in performance on a soon-to-be-released album by Ringo Starr. Meanwhile, here is Edgar Winter, "killing it" on Tobacco Road.

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.

Seem to have cats on my mind...

A good time, as summer begins, to re-visit a favorite song, here in pora* land. My first summer since the razing of my (G+) community. But it remains, still - as always - the year of the cat.

From several threads and strands... from Brian Wilson to Stairway to Heaven and Spirit, to Summer music...
Someone asked if it's true that rock and roll is "demonic". My response: Of courrrrse not! And as proof, I revisited what may arguably be one of the best rock & roll live performances of all time... So, happy summer. Get yer ya ya's out! But in these evil times, mind your
