"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 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.....
