Happy Friday, y'all!
This is arguably the best TLMD I have heard... Everything about this is amazing... quality, jerry's sweet soulful voice, The crispness of his guitar, the electric piano and even Donna's singing...
If you want to relax on a friday night... prep yourself and kick back in a comfortable chair and crank this up... It will ease your soul...
Not quite the guitar workout I'd have expected, but I am enjoying the vinyl quite well, thank you.
And thank you jonapi for the Yo La Tengo vid. A nice kick in the ass for a Friday morning. Hard to believe that these guys have been around since the '80s...where does the time go?
Yo La Tengo
........Dylan & Dead rehearsals vine---one of the finest things I've gotten off this magnificent medium----many thanks to all in their heartfelt love & joy to keep on keepin on---What a long-strange trip it's been.......Keep on Smilin!! Da Roach!
"Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare..."
Happy Summer Dayz A-Head!
Peace, love, music, safe-travels, friends and family...
and every good wish there ever was to You--->All, xo!
I love you...All, xo!
Sonic Youth - 5/19/1998, Ogden Theater, Denver, CO.
yeah, Prince Far-I was mighty.
and the On-U Sound guys are excellent. a good friend of mine handles all their artists for release in Japan.
many a classic story too about Lee Perry arriving in Narita and immediately wanting to smoke a spliff; he simply doesn't recognise that it's illegal. to him it's a normal plant (i'm with ya there Scratch...). spent the entire time traveling with him from the airport into Tokyo with him asking every ten minutes or so, "can i smoke now?"
"no, Perry-san, absolutely NOT!".
he's like a big kid!
..thanks for the reminder Deadicated...I have not had a roots session for quite some time (too many dang Grateful Dead releases to listen to ;-) ). I lost a lot of roots gems on a non backed up hard disc a while back and my vinyl is scattered around the globe. A lot can be recovered through the maze of blog sites but it takes so much time.
Don Drummond is a barely recognised genius. If he had been playing jazz in New York at that time he might have been a star...I imagine him as a sideman for Miles...as it was his life disintegrated into a nightmare. The great Rico Rodriguez kept the trombone tradition going though.
ahh yes..those heavy heavy roots and dub shows in London in the 70s and the chance to see Sly and Robbie almost every week. Prince Far-I was the hardest and heaviest..
