This is probably just an old white guy's S*#t but I like this... especially the last one - Futuristic & Devvon Terrell. Don't think I'd really call it Rap though...

These guys are coming to my town so I looked them up. Kind of a Mexican version of Steve ‘n Seagulls.

Are you more of a Fragile person?  Or more Close to the Edge?

 

Me, I've been listening to a lot of King Crimson recently.  I'd post some, but youtube is ruthless about copyright and KC.

I'm a Fragile guy. :D  In the late 90's I had a very best of Yes which didn't have the Fish on it. Later listening to the local radio station I heard Long Distance Run Around/The Fish. I had to have them together so I picked it up.

 

For ProgRock Rush is in a category on their own.  Yes,ELP and KC in another category. With KC having members from both Yes and ELP, that similarity can't be helped.

 

Ran across this live version on Long Distance Run Around/Fish Yesterday. It has an unusual time signature from the studio version and a different instrumental to the Fish. I'm sure you have ran into it but if not here it is.

That's a really nice live version!  I love how they play with the song structure.  I've actually never heard that version before.

 

Yeah, KC is really a revolving door of members.  I have the first seven albums, from Court to Red.  I've never listened to Discipline, their 1981 album.  I've heard it's good.

 

Honestly, regarding King Crimson, I always loved Peter Sinfield's lyrics.  So I find it a bit of a bummer that he left the group 1972.  I feel the same way about Greg Lake.  The first two KC albums are just so good with his voice on them.

 

Back to Yes - my favorite Yes album is probably 90215.  I know that's sacrilege, but it's the first album of theirs that I heard as a kid and its the one that I developed the strongest attachment to.

 

That said, Fragile is another favorite.

S!  Sorry no link.

 

There is a new tv show The Mayans.  Motorcycle gang thingie.  The theme song is "Paint it black" sung in Spanish.  I don't know why but I love it.

Yeah, this is a sequel to Sons of Anarchy. Actually a pretty good show, but I got a bit tired of Charlie Hunman... Katie Sagal was Great though!

"The Voodoo Origins of Rock'n'Roll"

 

In this post I do not offer tunes, but merely the printed word in their praise:

 

"That American music is rooted in Africa is a cliché, and clichés are useless. But to trace that root is a revelation." - Michael Ventura.

Now I'm just a dumb-ass white boy, but sometimes... sometimes, I know quality when I hear it.  
Alas, we no longer have Aretha. The Queen is dead! Long Live the Queen! She will move us for generations.

In that spirit, and in reverence to the root from which it sprang, may I present what I regard as a minor, but brilliant gem of journalism.

(I'm a bit keen on it, as you might guess.)

"Hear That Long Snake Moan" - A 32-page essay by Michael Ventura, from Shadow Dancing in the USA (Tarcher’s/St. Martin’s Press, 1985)  - out of print

                                                                        (BTW: If your after out-of-print or hard to get books, check out www.abebooks.com - and it also comes in .ca and in .co.uk flavours)

You can download the essay in PDF format here:
https://kupdf.net/do...0e17a959e7e_pdf

For a survey of its tone and some of its salient points, you can also flip through a 20-slide online PowerPoint presentation here:

As far as a squad member I've been out and about mostly golfing and trying to break 40. Its tough. So I haven't been around much.

 

Today I was in a outing for Children's Hospital but I could not keep out of my mind the outing I was in last week for Ronald McDonald House.

 

So last week we only had three guys for a four man scramble my friend knew one of the other teams. They had a fifth guy who wanted to play so he said we would take him.

We are in our 40's had a radio going, yes I know a radio on a golf course. Not my thing even though I'm a music guy, but don't mind as long as we respect other golfers.

 

So where am I going with this. We where playing some Van Halen and the gentleman who joined us was an older retired guy. He jokingly said do you guys have any Frank (Frank Sinatra). My friend brought up Fallout Radio on Google Play.

 

We had the link on two speaker one in each cart. On one of the tee boxes there was a weird delay echo from the two speakers off the trees. For those who have played the game it reminded me of going into a house and you get a weird delay from your radio and the radio in the room. I joked "I'm just waiting for the super mutants to crash through the trees."

 

The best was an hour into it the guy asked, "these are all from a video game." He loved it.

 

So here are two gems

Wow, she does look great! Like Joan Jett.

I had been misinformed many years ago that she was attacked by a fan, I didn’t even realize she was still alive :/
