50 Years Ago Today - Woodstock Finale (Overtime) - Jimi Hendrix



August 18, 1969
The wrap-up, as many had left the mud swamps and headed home. But for those who remained: this.

W is for Who
Hashtag is for #sundaytreat. Enjoy! This is an amazing performance, song, and band. 1969. Woodstock year.

I have this song on my "swamp driving" playlists, for car and on YouTube. It's a very favorite.
Just having heard a lovely guitar/drum song and discussion about instrumentals, this sprang to mind.

The Who - Underture - Tommy - 1969


This is best seen full-screen, even on a computer. It's edited film/video, with a Who performance, pinball wizardry, & decent sound.

This song wrenched my heart & resonated with me long after I heard Brian Wilson sing this. I lived through 9/11, he'd had personal hells of his own. These words from the depths of his soul rang so true, so clear at a time when so many were hurting and traumatized.

Love and Mercy


Lyrics onscreen

The power of feeling, sharing, hope and music.
Be safe, mindful & compassionate.

Have others heard this song sometime this past week or two?
For some reason I had it playing onboard (internal head drive), and two people mentioned the song in passing.
Is it in a movie trailer? Advert? Cosmic rays? Anyway... an oldie but goldie.

Photo is mine, once in a G-plus collection from Denver Botanic Gardens. At the Monet Pond, actually.

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

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. :))

Not to leave out Jethro Tull amid the John Barleycorn tributes...
50 years since Steve Winwood headed back to the studio, traffic-free, and began bits of what became John Barleycorn.
Live from Athens, Greece - Enjoy!

Back in the real world.... Here's something real, and somewhat inspirational.

Be true to yourself... Follow your dream!
He could have pursued fame & fortune, but followed his passion, just like his Dad, who took a slight turn in the fame department, but never shied away from his working-class, Jersey Shore background. A bit unlike so many other children of uber-celebrities. No?

I was just reminded of a familiar image (and photo I took) and beautiful song. by Sting, under the moon, synchronously....

What could be better than a bright moon and calm night at the corner of Bourbon and Bienvielle?

Perhaps the best live (recorded) performance I've yet seen of this classic Led Zep song.
Photo - in color - is of the guitar he used here in this concert.

Sometime in Winter




I recently posted a song by that title, by Steve Katz, a beautiful tune, and hit, for Blood, Sweat, & Tears.
A friend asked wrote the song, and I thought again; I'd said "BS&T" but the song was composed by Katz.
(Fun fact: He's from Brooklyn, I did not know until researching this now! Katz played with Lou Reed too!)

This song is a longtime favorite of mine from before BS&T, before the rock festivals with Jethro Tull, and there was this, from The Blues Project. Another simple and moving song of his, and truly a wonderful ....

Flute Thing !

Driving - rare for me - I usually just use my phone playlist in a rental car, but this may actually work better. Let's see...

I've recently discovered that my YouTube playlists (for my swamp/marsh/jungle drives) are easy to find, and with video too!

You like "swamp" or jungle music? A blend of Southern Rock and Superstar Classic British Rock, great for boring drives backwoods. Enjoy.


*Apologies in advance for those who truly and completely avoid YouTube - I know, yes, "Google is Evil". Sigh

Talkin’ bout my G-g-generation! And…


Who? What?
This. Just this.
If you’re a fan of Pete Townshend, The Who, or the psychology of the age of “classic rock” icons…

The Who’s Pete Townshend doesn’t enjoy performing. Here’s what he’d rather do


For any and all Who fans and fans of Pete Townshend.The central core of “Tommy” and a man who was wise in youth, and calm in senior wisdom… whose poetic and introspective career post-Who, is quite impressive still. And what I would call “mindful”.

It’s interesting also to hear of his disconnection from a fellow traveler without that introspective, visionary spark. “It is what it is”.

And this is Pete Townsend today… wow … at least two of us now thankful he didn’t “die before I get old”. A salute to a great.

The Doors - Roadhouse Blues - “Best Version” - Live in N.Y. (1970)


Yeah, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer.
Well, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer.
Future’s uncertain and the end is always near.

Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll — all night long.

Another very special treat for King Crimson fans...Brand New! (Oct 2019)


Part of their 50th Anniversary Tribute / Celebration
King Crimson - 21st Century Schizoid Man (Morgan Studios) [50th Anniversary | Released 2019 ]

The song itself starts at 2:29 and is nearly 7 minutes in length. But for fans, the 'inside story' / intro is very interesting!
One of the most-loved songs among fans, and iconic King Crimson. A song for our times too, some people say.

Meanwhile....
This vid has been open on a browser tab here for months - I guess so good I didn't want to forget it. Seen it twice now. A really nice snapshot not only of Brian Wilson and Beatles/BeachBoys, but of the tipping points from vocal groups & doo-wop to folk rock, beach, and (r)evolutionary influences and sounds. Really good, 23:42 long.

Here's something new for King Crimson fans....
Part of a 50th Anniversary Tribute / Celebration.

Not to worry, the spoken intro gives way to the music, for non-fans of long spoken intros (but... it's interesting)
A lovely recording, audio wise. And iconic King Crimson. For those not interested in band history, the song itself starts at 2:22.

Post-script to the passing of Ginger Baker - Pt. 2 (A toast)

Reminded of other legends still out there performing, from the Rolling Stones, Paul and Ringo, to Jon Anderson, as well as Simon and Garfunkel, several of Jefferson Airplane (Jorma esp.), and others. Some are performing full-tilt, others have left the road but record &/or play occasionally, close to home. Some are living quiet lives. To them all, let's lift our glass, and drink to the hard-working players:

Here's one from a very literate and music-wise window-washer! (Van the Man!)

WASHING WINDOWS (Van Morrison)


Lyrics
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street
Got in my nose
As we carried our ladders down the street
With the wrought-iron gate rows
I went home and listened to Jimmie Rodgers in my lunch-break
Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner
And went straight back to work.
Oh, Sam was up on top
And I was on the bottom with the V
We went for lemonade and Paris buns
At the shop and broke for tea
I collected from the lady
And I cleaned the fanlight inside-out
I was blowing saxophone on the weekend
In that down joint.
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows (number a hundred and thirty-six)
I heard Leadbelly and Blind Lemon
On the street where I was born
Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee,
Muddy Waters singin' "I'm A Rolling Stone"
I went home and read my Christmas Humphreys' book on Zen
Curiosity killed the cat
Kerouac's "Dharma Bums" and "On The Road"
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows

Talking about Rock & Roll! (was somebody?)


I responded to a thread on Van Morrison's "In The Days Before Rock And Roll "
Yes, the thread noted, there was popular music: Spiritual, Sinatra, Big Band, Classical, Regional, Gregorian Chant. All good.

Rock & Roll! - Lou Reed, Live at the NY Academy of Music - HQ/Tribute


Listening, I think was one great show. Looking at the location I remembered: I was there! (They say if you were there... or working... or both). People ask: What were the best concerts you saw there? This was one of the best. There were so many great concerts there.
