Don't you love songs celebrating domestic violence?
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

I sure like that one, anyway! I'm sure mainstream feminists would strongly disapprove, but I'd like to think my pals at the Association of Libertarian Feminists would be ok with it.

On a related note, while it's no "Hamlet," "Romeo and Juliet" is great, for a play that celebrates teen suicide.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Travers came out with good material I'll give him that. He just didn't have a polished show and this was when Styx and Journey were tearing it up, you had to have a good show. Travers always seemed to just play and that is if he had his equipment working. The Black Pearl came out in 82 and Rhodes was killed in early 82 on their way to Orlando for the show Travers played in. I'm not sure but I actually think Pat Traverse filled in for Rhodes (who could not play since he was burried) for the rest of Ozzies tour.

If we're talkin' big band then I have to mention Benny Goodman's "Sing, Sing, Sing."


Maybe the greatest jazz chart ever written...

The best performance of it I've ever heard was on the "Swing Kids" soundtrack.

;) I'm pretty sure Romeo and Juliet is quite critical of the crazy kids. Maybe Little Walter and Pat Travers intended "Boom Boom Out Go the Lights" to offer some critical insight to the violence. But it sure doesn't sound like it.

I'm pretty sure he romanticized the heck out of it, inadvertently or not. More critical of the parents, I think.

Without data mining, I Googled "most romantic stories" Here's the first site that came up:

Have to admit, though, I prefer "Don't Fear the Reaper."

Full disclosure: I like the tune. Travers gives a very energetic performance. Little Walter is my favourite blues harp player. But I strongly dislike the lyrics.

From a music stand point, I very seldom, if ever, listen or pay attention to the lyrics of any song. In fact most songs I can hum but can't sing because I don't know the lyrics.


And now that I think about it Santa, wasn't Travers scheduled to be the opening act for that Ozzy concert anyway?

I also remember seeing Ozzy in New Orleans for the Day of Rock n Roll Festival when ran onstage with his hair in his hands, blood on his scalp and threw his hair into the audience, screaming, "New Orleans is a place where I can let my hair down!"
Peace

Something like Hayseed Dixie?

And John, the Goldberg Variations are truly great, but all of Gould's verbal noises kind of drive one crazy, no?

My list:

1. Journal October, David Darling
2. As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls, Pat Metheny
3. The Willies, Bill Frisell
4. I Am a Cold Rock. I Am Dull Grass. A Tribute to the Music of Will Oldham, various artists.
5. Hank Williams - 40 Greatest Hits, Hank Williams

Just wanted to say thank you, Mr. Gitelson, for the 'memory jog'.
(Ref. Al Kooper)
Always admired his talent (when I became aware of him) when he was with 'The Blues
Project'. After they split, always wondered, then, what happened to him?
Then in the late '60's, I was walking through the grounds of the old & just recent World's Fair in Flushing, NY and came upon a band in concert.

It was Al Kooper and his newly formed band: 'Sea Train'.

Great memory.

Funny thing is I stopped hearing them.

A few years ago I heard a composition that was a transcription of whatever the heck it was that Gould was humming during the recording. Amazingly, his vocal accompaniments bear little relationship to the music he was playing. Gould's was a mind well beyond my reckoning.

John, the music is indeed astonishing. My problem is that when I listen to serious music I use headphones, and headphones seem to accentuate extraneous noises.

And yes, Gould's mind was beyond reckoning. We overuse the word genius so much that it has lost much of its meaning. Gould was indeed a genius. And a CANADIAN!

It is, indeed, amazing that he was able to overcome that handicap.

Forgot that one! And the classic, very "Hendrix-ish" tag ("...and that ain't too cool.")

There is a difference between mentioning something evil (hell, we'd have no literature at all without that) and celebrating it.

Which side of the line is "Hey Joe" on? Our narrator is an accessory after the fact, encouraging Joe to "shoot her one more time again, baby" and "run on down" (to Mexico to escape).

In Joe's defense, he did catch her messin' round, messin' round, yeah, and that ain't too cool.
