i remember soft machine.. outa dallas right! haha haha
but really i do remember them!
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....
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.
Taking a little mid-afternoon break with Tell The Truth> Almost Cut My Hair> Eyes> Stella> Around and Around.
And then back to the grindstone...
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
and all are excellent, i only balk at billy and neil... still overplayed in my head!
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?
Gra8fulTed - yes in Spokane, once in a while we do get awesome shows here, but not the norm for many to stop here. Sweet that you saw Jimi, where was that?
iknowyourider - two good nights - because tonight the show and last night we won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
Hope you have a Real Good Time, BOTH Nights!
