David Crosby - Cowboy Movie /Laughin (live in The Matrix 15 Dec.1970)

 David Crosby with Jerry Carcia ,Phil Lesh ,Mickey Hart, (The Grateful Dead)picture is taken  during  recording of Crosby’s 1971 solo record “If I Could Only Remember My Name”

                  Cowboy Movie

Recorded before the release of Crosby’s album, “If I Could Only Remember My Name”, this set comes from a short stint at the Matrix in SF in 1970.  “David & the Dorks” was the name they played under for this gig.
Here two highlights - “Cowboy Movie” - slowly unwinds with more good electric guitar punctuating Crosby’s vocal, a nice version of this tune. (Thanks Big O (http://www.bigozine2.com/)


Good preview of Crosby’s solo album, a sensitive arrangement, there’s a slight feeling of menace in this song.(Thanks Big O (http://www.bigozine2.com/)

If I Could Only Remember My Name is the debut solo album by David Crosby, released in February 1971 on Atlantic Records. It was one of four high-profile albums released by each member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the wake of their chart-topping Déjà Vu album (along with Stephen Stills, Songs for Beginners, and After the Gold Rush). It peaked at #12 on the Billboard 200. It has been in print continuously since its initial release. The album gained new recognition in 2010 when it was listed second on the Vatican's "Top 10 Pop Albums of All Time" as published in the official newspaper of the Holy See,(Wikipedia)

Van Morrison Live at the Orphanage (p1)Into The Mystic

Wat is mijn allermooiste Van Morrison nummer? Moeilijke vraag,Van heeft zo veel moois geschreven dat deze vraag voor mij bijna niet te beantwoorden is ,maar mede door mooie herrineringen die bij deze song naar boven komen denk ik toch dat Into The Mystic hoog zal scoren. Gelukkig staat het tegenwoordig weer op de setlist en afgelopen zomer in Peer konden we het nummer weer horen in een prachtig nieuw arrangement,het was een hoogtepunten van dat bijzondere optreden.

Onderstaande fragment is van een optreden op 29 July 1974 in The Orphanage,Into The Mystic in zijn originele uitvoering.

Into The Mystic (van het album Moondance)

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when the fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And magnificently we will flow into the mystic

When that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will flow into the mystic
Come on girl...

Into The Mystic songfacts...
"Into the Mystic" was recorded during the Moondance sessions at A&R Recording Studios in New York City in September to November 1969. Elliott Scheiner was the engineer.

The lyrics are about a spiritual quest, typical of Morrison's work. "Bass thrums like a boat in motion, and the song comes back to water as a means of magical transformation." "At the very end Van sings: too late to stop now, suggesting that the song also describes an act of love." (This phrase would become a key point of many live concerts.) Compared to "Yesterday" by The Beatles, It has been described as "another song where the music and the words seem to have been born together, at the same time, to make one perfectly formed, complete artistic element.“

Morrison remarked on the song: "'Into the Mystic' is another one like 'Madame Joy' and 'Brown Skinned Girl'. Originally I wrote it as 'Into the Misty'. But later I thought that it had something of an ethereal feeling to it so I called it 'Into the Mystic'. That song is kind of funny because when it came time to send the lyrics in WB Music, I couldn't figure out what to send them. Because really the song has two sets of lyrics. For example, there's 'I was born before the wind' and 'I was borne before the wind', and also 'Also younger than the son, Ere the bonny boat was one' and 'All so younger than the son, Ere the bonny boat was won' ... I guess the song is just about being part of the universe.

Claude Hay & The Gentle Enemies - Peerock 26 July 2015

                                    Claude Hay is regelmatig te gast op festivals in Europa,zelf zag ik hem vorig jaar op het bluesfestival van Kwadendamme.Hij bracht op het zelfs tot een optreden in het mooie VPRO programma Vrije Geluiden Dit jaar stond hij op o.a Peer Bluesfestival ,Zwarte Cross en....
PeeRock Colijnsplaat.

                 Claude Hay & The Gentle Enemies

Hoewel Claude meestal solo optreed(one man band)had hij deze keer nog twee muzikanten meegenomen  uit Australie (Ryan -bass en Marcus - drums)De bezoekers van het festival hadden daarom het voorrecht Claude tweemaal te kunnen zien optreden ,eerst solo en later op de avond als Claude Hay & The Gentle Enemies

Het optreden van zowel solo als met de band waren de hoogtepunten van de avond.En dat kwam niet alleen omdat ik niets heb met de muziek van b.v Mook en de Hobbyisten.Het dak ging eraf bij Claude Hay & The Gentle Enemies  en dat kwam niet door de storm!!

                               Claude Hay one man band.

Daarna mochten de boys relaxen en uitslapen bij Arthur in s Gravenpolder (de honden hadden er drie vrienden bij) daarna

                                              On The Road Again.....

                                         en ik weer 2 mooi albums rijker (thanks boys!)
