Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Down By The River... door  morrisanddylan

 Down by the river kwam in 1969 met Crazy Horse uit op een single met The losing end (When you're on) op de B-kant. Daarnaast verscheen het dat jaar op hun album Everybody knows this is nowhere. Terwijl Young er zelf geen hitnotering mee behaalde, belandden wel drie covers van het lied in de Amerikaanse hitlijsten.

Govt.Mule plays Traffic - "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys"


"The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" is a song by the band Traffic from their 1971 album of the same name. The song was written by Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood.
 The title refers to an inscription written by actor Michael J. Pollard in Jim Capaldi's bookin Jim Capaldi's book[clarification needed] while they were both in Morocco. Capaldi and Pollard were planning to work on a movie that was never filmed
 Capaldi said: Pollard and I would sit around writing lyrics all day, talking about Bob Dylan and the Band, thinking up ridiculous plots for the movie. Before I left Morocco, Pollard wrote in my book 'The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.' For me, it summed him up. He had this tremendous rebel attitude. He walked around in his cowboy boots, his leather jacket. At the time he was a heavy little dude. It seemed to sum up all the people of that generation who were just rebels. The 'Low Spark,' for me, was the spirit, high-spirited. You know, standing on a street corner. The low rider. The 'Low Spark' meaning that strong undercurrent at the street level.

The Who (unplugged) -- Mountain View CA October 30th 1999

   Bridge School Benefit Shoreline Amphitheatre Mountain View
    John Entwistle  bass vocals  Pete Townshend  guitar vocals -Roger Daltrey  guitar vocals 
   John 'Rabbit' Bundrick piano -Zak Starkey drums tambourine
 

(October 30 & 31, 1999)
Featured: The Who, Pearl Jam, Sheryl Crow, Green Day, Billy Corgan & James Iha, Tom Waits (Sat. only), Emmylou Harris (Sun. only), Lucinda Williams and Brian Wilson.


"Mary Anne with the Shaky Hand" is a song written by Pete Townshend and first released on The Who's 1967 album The Who Sell Out. The best known version of the song has acoustic guitar and an arrangement using Latin percussion instruments. The song has ambiguous lyrics that have been subject to a variety of interpretations. Four different recordings of the song have been released by The Who. It was later performed by a number of other artists.

"Boris the Spider" is a song written by The Who's bass guitarist, John Entwistle. It appears as the second track of their 1966 album A Quick One. This song is claimed to be Entwistle's first composition, and became a staple of live shows.[1] This song, along with "My Wife", "Heaven and Hell" and "The Quiet One", were Entwistle's biggest songs to perform live. "The Quiet One" was written to replace this song and "My Wife", which Entwistle had become quite tired of singing.[2] Though this song was popular, it was not released as a single in the US and the UK. In Japan, "Boris the Spider" was released as the B-side to "Whiskey Man" in 1967.

"Won't Get Fooled Again" is a song, written by Pete Townshend. It was released as a single in June 1971, reaching the top 10 in the UK, while the full eight-and-a-half-minute version appears as the final track on the band's 1971 album Who's Next, released that August
 
 The Bridge School Benefit is an annual charity concert held in Mountain View, California, every October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The concert lasts the entire weekend and is organized by musicians Neil Young and Pegi Young.

The Allman Brothers - Need Your Love So Bad

               Duane Allman                     Dickey Betts                      Dan Toler

"Need Your Love So Bad" sometimes known as "I Need Your Love So Bad", is a blues song first published in 1955 and written by Mertis John Jr.


The first recording of the song was by Mertis John's younger brother Little Willie John and was released by King Records.Willie John's single achieved No. 5 on the Billboard R&B chart in 1956and the B-side "Home at Last" reached No. 6 in the same chart.[4] While using the AABA form and a harmonic layout typical for the R&B ballad,"Need Your Love So Bad" has been described as "A tightly wound and intense plea for love, [...] quite different from the usual R&B ballad fare".The songwriting credit has often been incorrectly attributed to Little Willie John.An example of this is the 1969 Fleetwood Mac album The Pious Bird of Good Omen, on which the original label gave the credit to Little Willie John.The performing rights organisation BMI credits the song to both John brothers.
Little Willie John's version of the song was used in the soundtrack to the film Wonder Boys in 2000. The song has also appeared on various compilation albums, such as The Very Best of Little Willie John, released in 2001 by Collectables Records as a CD.

Little Feat - Pink Pop 1976


Het was een mooie zonnige tweede pinksterdag in 1976.Het pinkpopfestival had die dag een behoorlijke gevarieerde programmering en was dan ook al snel uitverkocht(40000 man)Een kleine nederlandse inbreng deze keer Sido Martens(wie kent hem nog),maar voor de rest allemaal internationale artiesten.The Jess Roden Band,The Streetwalkers(met die gekke zanger Roger Chapman)The Outlaws (Country rock)The Chieftains(waren toen al heren van middelbare leeftijd)Little Feat(hun doorbraak moest nog komen)en de headliner was Uriah Heep.Bij Little Feat waren er schijnbaar veel problemen met het geluid en de kritieken op hun optreden waren dan ook niet mals,het Limburgs Dagblad schreef,,een zeer teleurstellend concert,een weinig overtuigend optreden en de twee kaktussen op het podium konden daar niets meer aan redden.Als ik onderstaande beelden zie denk ik daar toch heel anders over.Op en voor de mannen wel een heel vreemd podium,ik zie een zeer geinspireerde band aan het werk, een combinatie van Jazz,Funk en Rock.Maar ik ben waarschijnlijk bevooroordeeld ,wat ik ben nu een maal een fan van deze band,oordeel zelf maar.....

Jack Bruce (foto Arthur)

  John Symon Asher "Jack" Bruce (14 May 1943 – 25 October 2014) r.i.p

Nog maar eens een terugblik op het North Sea Jazz festival.Ook het optreden van Spectrum Road was voor mij een van de hoogtepunten.Veel "Jazz"mensen waren het niet met mij eens ,de tent liep behoorlijk leeg waarschijnlijk iets te hard? De band speelt voornamelijk muziek van jazz/fuzion drummer Tony Williams .
De toegift voor de overgebleven toehoorders was onderstaande Cream  klassieker.


Politician

 Vernon Reid komt voor uit de New York jazz-funk-punk scene.Ik zag hem jaren geleden al op het Haagse ParkPop met zijn toenmalige band  Livin Colour.Een fenomenale gitarist.

John Medeski is lid van het trio Medeski Martin & Wood.Maar werkte ook samen met muzikanten als John Zorn,  Marc Ribot,  T-Bone Burnett, Rufus Wainwright, Ray Lamontagne,  John Scofield,  Iggy Pop en vele anderen.

Jack Bruce heeft natuurlijk geen introductie nodig.Een van de oprichters van Cream..Daarna gevolg door een prachtige solo carrierre en was lid van diverse rock/jazz esembles. Ik vond het prachtig deze rocklegende op zijn fretloze bass in aktie te zien .

Bob Dylan - Not Dark Yet (Donald Bren Events Center, Irvine, CA, USA 10-10-1919)

 A new drummer and a new guitarist, Dylan on guitar, Lenny Bruce, and mannequins in formal wear! Bob Dylan kicked off the autumn leg of his tour this past Friday, and there have been quite a few surprises! (Defenitly Dylan)https://www.definitelydylan.com/
 

 "Not Dark Yet" is a song by Bob Dylan, recorded in January 1997 and released in September that year on his album Time Out of Mind. It was the first single from the album

  Shadows are falling and I’ve been here all day
It’s too hot to sleep, time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I’ve still got the scars that the sun didn’t heal
There’s not even room enough to be anywhere
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there’s been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writing what was in her mind
I just don’t see why I should even care
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well, I’ve been to London and I’ve been to gay Paree
I’ve followed the river and I got to the sea
I’ve been down on the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain’t looking for nothing in anyone’s eyes
Sometimes my burden seems more than I can bear
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

I was born here and I’ll die here against my will
I know it looks like I’m moving, but I’m standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don’t even hear a murmur of a prayer
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there
