3/26/68 - Cleveland Music Hall

Jimi played 2 - 45 minute shows on March 26th of '68. I was in 10th grade and Ma & Pa were less than thrilled that I was out late on a school night! I have a primitive recording, made on a hand-held monaural Realistic cassette tape recorder. A group called the Soft Machine preceded his set. Ahhhh, foxy lady...... was really good, then he sprayed lighter fluid on his guitar, lit it on fire, swung it around, just incredible. I didn't play my Beatles or Dave Clark 5 collection too much after that!! Anyone out there want to initiate a Hendrix bootleg vine?

...now if 6, turned out to be 9....

Twisted**~~** Joni Mitchell**~~**

So why should I feel sorry If they just couldn't understand The idiomatic logic That went on in my head I had a brain It was insane Oh they used to laugh at me When I refused to ride On all those double decker buses All because there was no driver on the top

What no driver on the top...that chick is twisted! Gotta love Joni :)

Wow! Excellent, Hal. Last night after the big news (signed, sealed, delivered) I put on Jimmy Hendrix at Woodstock. I saw Jimmy at the Filmore a couple of times in either or both '67, '68. Purple hazy on the dates. Natural high today - what a new morning this is. All power to all people and music to you tonight, Hal.

And then back to the grindstone...

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Guilty pleasures

I'm a recent convert to digital music, and somehow my IPod Nano has turned into a jukebox containing every 60s-70s single or album cut that I once owned/still own, loved on the radio but never had, etc. It contains more than a few very guilty pleasures, and has become the repository of my version of "comfort music". I jam all the cool stuff and all the nerd stuff into commute-sized playlists and set the machine on "shuffle" and bliss my way to work. Today's list:

All Along the Watchtower -- Hendrix Can't Find My Way Home -- Blind Faith Crimson and Clover -- Tommy James and the Shondells Squeeze Box -- The Who Movin' Out -- Billy Joel I'd Love to Change the World -- Ten Years After The Wanderer -- Dion Them Changes -- Buddy Miles Homeward Bound -- Simon and Garfunkle I Fought the Law -- Bobby Fuller Four 4th of July, Asbury Park -- Springsteen Honky Cat -- Elton John Bluebird -- Buffalo Springfield A Groovy Kind of Love -- The Mindbenders Big Yellow Taxi -- Joni Mitchell Tell Her No -- The Zombies Give Me Love & Crackerbox Palace -- George Harrison Long Train Runnin' -- Doobie Bros Tuesday's Gone -- Lynyrd Skynyrd Sweet Caroline -- Neil Diamond Woman -- Peter and Gordon Dancing Barefoot -- Pattie Smith Don't You Care -- Buckinghams Let It Rain -- Clapton Wear Your Love Like Heaven -- Donovan Instant Karma -- John Lennon

So you really didn't want to know what I'm listening to, did you?
