Atlantic Magazine New Essay

I just read what I thought was an interesting take on the new 14-disc DVD "All the Years Combine." Gonna guess it might weird some folks out. You can find it here:

For what it's worth, I also did a blog review of the Atlantic review. I hope it's all right to post this address. My take is worth reading, though, if the Atlantic piece pisses you off.

Mike & Dewlover

Mike: Easy accessibility refers to the fact that this recording was widely available very early on. It got bootlegged as well.

Dewlover: It isn't a matter of trust with Eric Holder. He hasn't uttered an original word since he became USAG. He does what he is told and what he is paid to do. A lot of it has been onerous but I am pleased that his department is challenging stringent new voter registration laws in red states.

Say What

May 8, 1977, performance at Cornell University’s Barton Hall, which the library said “has achieved almost mythic status among ‘Deadhead’ tape traders because of its excellent sound quality and early accessibility...”

Excellent sound quality, no doubt, but I don't know what to make of "early accessibility". Primitive wheelchair ramps?

Library of Congress shows some love for 5/8/77

Says the NYT.

"Recordings of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love,” Leonard Bernstein’s first performance with the New York Philharmonic, “Rapper’s Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang and a 1977 concert by the Grateful Dead are among the diverse entries that will be added to the National Recording Registry, the Library of Congress is to announce on Wednesday.

"Selected for preservation because they are “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” the library said in a news release, the 25 sound recordings chosen this year include a CBS radio broadcast of a Nov. 14, 1943, concert given by the Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra of New York and conducted by Bernstein, who filled in when both Artur Rodzinski and Bruno Walter were unavailable; as well as the Grateful Dead’s May 8, 1977, performance at Cornell University’s Barton Hall, which the library said “has achieved almost mythic status among ‘Deadhead’ tape traders because of its excellent sound quality and early accessibility...”

Was reading the newspapers online and...

found this Huffington Post piece.

If you check it out --- do scroll down
to the play box with the actual music
in it. By using time-period pieces they
are very beautiful.

O Never Say I Was False Of Heart...
is such a highlight but I loved them all.

I have Shakespeare in the most finest
of print and it's been a treasured gift;
The cover of the book is crush red velvet
and hours drift away at the unfolding of it.

I"ll come back with some horror and evil later.
I've no time for that as this day has been
a spiraling light of good karma and much rain.
