Music Is Everybody's Possession.
"It's Only Publishers Who Think That People Own It!"

John Lennon


"Music is the means of expression of the spirit. Music is also transient, but the emotions aroused by it can remain with us for a long time. In ancient Greek days this quality was believed to be dangerous to the soul."
Peter Lloyd, Professor of Flute, Manchester University

 

"Without music, life would be a mistake."
Nietzche


"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
Aldous Huxley


"Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn."
Charlie Parker


"I'll play it first and tell you what it is later."
Miles Davis

Remembering John Lennon\
(click to listen)
October 9

Hapyy Birthday John

Celebrating the life of John Lennon. Here are some recordings from my collection which tell a story, not just of John Lennon's music, but also about John Lennon the person. I've included 7 intervies, a rare recording of Lennon's piano work prior to the Imagine Album. As well as several post-Beatles recordings. My favorite is the MSG recording as I was at that show. I don't usually put video on this website because of the bandwidth but I've included a 24 minute video of John Lennon sitting in with Frank Zappa at the Fillmore East in NYC. I've also included the only known recording of Lennon and McCartney playing together after the Beatles breakup.

You are missed John
Your Spirit Lives On!

Bob Marley

It was 30 years this week since Bob Marely's death. How time flies. Listen to a 1973 recording from the late great musician from the late great Boston radio station WBCN.

Recorded at Paul's Mall Boston .

11/28/10

I've finally digested all the turkey, stuffing and pie.
I've avoided all shopping malls, stores and commercial media for the last three days, in favor of my guitar and a good book.

One of the 'round to it's' I didn't get to yesterday was a YMSK posting in celebration of

JIMI HENDRIX's
68th BIRTHDAY

 

So I'll do it today
After all these years I am still awed every time I listen to Hendrix play. He was an absolute master who has influenced countless musicians.

The Grateful Dead

Was the sight of the first large post Woodstock concert in NY.

The show featured the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers and the Band.

According to the book Long Strange Trip , this concert was inspired by the Dillon Stadium show
which was posted on this website previously.

Listen to the Grateful Dead's set at Watkins Glen whcih is almost 4 hours long. The last segment includes encores with
The Grateful Dead, The Band and The Allman Brothers all playing together.

Some Early
Bob Dylan
Recordings

 

With October drawing to a close,
I thought of the 1964 Dylan Haloween show from Carmegie Hall.
While looking for it, I found these other early Dylan recordings
I've been meaning to post for years.
Here they are for your listening pleasure.

I hope you enjoy them!


Happy Haloween!

Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur

I've always liked her music. I lived on Mission Hill in Boston back in the day. Jim Kweskin was my neighbor. It was with his jug band I first heard Maria. Later, I saw her at U Mass when Midnight at the Oasis was popular.

Maria was in town a few weeks ago. I wanted to go but life got in the way. I just got two recordings from her current tour so I figured it would be a good "excuse" to feature some of her music.

Listen to a recording from 1972 when she opened for Bonnie Raitt

a recording from 1974 at a club called Ebbetts Field

and two recordings made in september on her current tour.

The Beatles Decca Auditions.

On Jan 1 1962, Decca Records A&R head, Dick Row,e established his place in history when he turned down four liverpool musicians called The Beatles. After the audition Rowe told Brian Epstein "Groups of guitars are on the way out. " You really should stick to selling records.
"
Beatles Audition

Instead, Rowe Signed Brian Poole & the Tremeloes, who had auditioned the same day, because they lived closer to London. Rowe quickly made up for his misstep by signing the Rolling Stones to Decca... on George Harrison's advice.

(This is actually only 9 of the original 15 tracks which were submitted for audition. I'd be very interested in a complete recording if you have a copy!)

I was at this show with my college room mate Rob, and Moodus' brother Paul. For years I've looked for a copy of this show, and I beleive this is most of it.

While I confess my memory of this event could be extremely 'altered', I remember them playing "Mountain Jam" which is not on either of these disks.

Thanks to Paul of 'Twist and Shout Records' for this recording.

The results of the election are in. Here in the Granite State a bunch of climate change denyers have won the day.

I've got an idea!!! I heard on the internet that gravity is a left wing conspiracy.

So lets do a test.... I'll hold a rock in the air. Let's vote on what will happen when I let go.

Of course, that's absurd, we can't vote to suspend gravity,... well we can but it will not change the objective reality.

Similarly we can vote for morons who don't want to face the economic realities of climate change. Their policies will not change the objective reality, which is, humans are causing climate change and sticking our head(s) in the sand will not change that objective reality.

It is noteworthy that since September 09, there are more troops under arms than there were when George Bush was president.

This is an errie reminder of Viet Nam.

American troops currently deployed in 70 countries around the world. We have a limited amount of resources, and we make choices.

The US is not in the top ten countries in health care, education or infant mortality. When you read about someone losing a home, not being able to pay for groceries or the doctor, bridges collapsing as we drive over them,. remember, the trillions of dollars we spend on the military.

The choice to use our resources for domination, yield the results described by the statistics above. Only when the leaders of this country hear the message loud and clear will there be a change.

"Somehow this madness must cease. We must stop now.
I speak as a child of God and a brother to the suffering poor. I speak for those whose land is being laid waste, whose homes are beomg destroyed, who's culture is being subverted.
I speak for the poor of America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home and death and corruption abroad.
I speak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken.
I speak as an American to the leaders of my own nation. The great initiative in this war is ours. The initiative to stop it must be ours."

"Civil disobedience. . . is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. . Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem." -----Howard Zinn,

"I think we must bite the bullet and say no more healthcare for card-carrying Republicans. It just doesn't make sense to invest in longevity for people who don't believe in the future. Let them try faith-based medicine, let them pray for their arteries to be reamed and their hips to be restored, and leave science to the rest of us."

Garrison Keillor

John's Hopkins Study Claims 650,000 Civilian Iraqi Deaths

"The peer-reviewed study, led by researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is based on information (including death certificates, in most cases) from a sample of 1,849 households in 16 of Iraq's 18 provinces and extrapolated for the nation-a practice used in other areas hit by wars or epidemics. Some researchers said the small sample size and sample locations could have distorted the outcome. The study had a range of deaths from 426,000 to 793,000, with a 95 percent statistical confidence level."

This is the same statistical methods which have been used previously in the Baalkans and Africa. The same statistical methods that yielded results accepted by GWB I and Margaret Thatcher.
