Track number: 15
Genre: Psychedelic Rock

Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya need her badly
Don’t ya love her ways
Tell me what you say
Don’t ya love her madly
Wanna be her daddy
Don’t ya love her face
Don’t ya love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
Like she did one thousand times before
Don’t ya love her ways
Tell me what you say
Don’t ya love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Yeah, don’t you love her
Don’t you love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
All your love
All your love
All your love
Yeah, all your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Well, don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly

Alrighty then, all I can say is that I am really feelin this song, especially that line in this song… that line, “wanna be her daddy,” because, well, yes,  omlgjhcita, yes I do.


Strong stuff… strong af.

I was worried before cuz she’s so young, younger than all me darlin’ angels even—but it looks like our lady’s mind is as strong as her hands (yay) — therefore we are good to go, go, go!




Samantha Fish – R.L. Burnside style ! 4 13 14

At the River Beach Pub in Chillicothe Illinois 4-13-14…

Ooh baby, how timely can you get… a fabulous R.L. Burnside song played by my Goddess, the Mistress of Blues. Check out her performance. Did you go, ‘Whoa!’?

This is passion, this is power and this is drive. Oooh! Like this fella said on facebook’s Samantha Fish Fans page…

I know I’ve posted this before, but I felt it needed to be posted again. John Richardson captured a piece of Music magic here almost three years ago. I love all that Samantha Fish has recorded have all the albums, watched countless youtube videos, but to me this is her at her raw best. So much passion, energy and drive. Slide blues summed up in ten glorious minutes.

Right on, Ian!


Yeah Heah!




R.L. Burnside: See My Jumper Hanging On the Line (1978)

Fabulous talent.

Please read this excellent article, Forgotten Heroes: R.L. Burnside, by Ted Drozdowski, over at Premier Guitar.

It is eye-opening, that’s for sure.

Jean “Django” Reinhardt, born on this day in 1910 in Liberchies, Pont-à-Celles, Belgium.

I do not believe that I have ever actually seen the man play before.

For this unexpected pleasure I must thank Frank Petrilli who always comes up with something fabulous when he is not directing a play or feature or something. PentaProps!™




There is mischief afoot.

That is Mr Peter Townshend, posing nicely in his home studio way back in the 60s. Look at that stuff!

This pic was kindly posted to Instagram by the fab folks at TapeOp magazine. TapeOp is awesome.

I suppose this might celebrate the start up of my latest attempt at a studio of some at least halfway-decent sort.

Got an impromptu drum track from my dear friend Lynn, who was definitely on the jazz cuz she was gigging the next night, all the way away in Olde Blighty! Which is not unusual at all because her recording studio, Bakehouse Studio and her Wobbly Music musical empire are just up the road. In fact, last night the second EP, Foodbank Robbery, from her latest band, The Johnnie Squizzercrow Experiment, was released via the Senior Sounds project. Get it here eh.

Here is a bit of it.

Focusrite! Yeah they’re the “old” ones but ask me if it’s anything but academic. Seriously, now. Especially in this timeline and in any event, these pieces are nice.

And I can use it with the Thunderbolt 3 laptop as well as the Firewire laptop. I like that a lot as the Thunderbolt interfaces are so very dear these days. It cost $60 to be able to plug it in though. And that with Focusrite providing their half of the connection gratis. This studio does set new standards for low budget, for the time being, and for quite a foreseeable time.

But beyond that hardware lust…

the music making…

that will be the candy.

Must save brain…

obecause Ig, like Eldrad before him…

Must Live!

Not quite like Paulo’s place, eh ? :


Ah, yes, you will be among the first to know what happens.

I could not stop watching this. It just ended. Whoa. As a sorta soundman, this is deep passion that just sucked me right in. And I do not regret it. The first sound recording of the air moving, i.e. live, microphonic, of an unknown cornetist blowin for the phonautogram in 1857 (1857!) which was followed three years later by the human voice via a young lady singing Eu Claire de la Lune in 1860.

I was smitten.

You might, I did a little at first, think


FIRST SOUNDS: Humanity’s First Recordings of Its Own Voice


Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville was the first person to record his voice and send it into the future. David Giovannoni recounts how First Sounds discovered and played back these recordings 150 years later.

The vid covers the timeline of their quest to bring to life the unplayable recordings that were made in the decade before Thomas Edison did his thing.

These gentlemen had to hear these sounds. And they not only succeeded, they made history in making history sing.

I warn you, though … it is compelling and it is 55 minutes. At least it was compelling to me!

Gotta keep an ear out for this guy.

Overall I am thinking that this is a good sign for music.




Johnny Cash – (Ghost) Riders In The Sky (original)

I do not own this but I think it’s a masterpiece and should be common property!
R.I.P. Johnny Cash


An old cowboy went ridin’ out one dark and windy day.
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way.
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw,
Plowing through the ragged skies.
And up a cloudy draw.

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel.
Their horns were black and shiney and their hot breath he could feel.
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky.
Oh, he saw the riders comin’ hard,
And he heared their mournful cry…


Ghostriders in the sky…

Their faces dark, their eyes were blue their shirts all soaked with sweat.
He’s rindin’ hard to catch that herd but he ain’t caught ’em yet
‘Cause they’ve got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
On horses snortin’ fire…
As they ride on hear their cry…

As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
“If you wanna save your soul from hell, or ridin’ on our range
Then cowboy, change your ways today, or with us you will ride
Tryin’ to catch the devil’s herd
Across these endless skies…”

Ghostriders in the sky…
Ghostriders in the sky…
Ghostriders in the sky.

(written by: Stan Jones, 1948)

Yes, it IS a masterpiece, the uploader is spot on in that assessment.

And yes, R.I.P., my dear sweet hero.

I am attempting to feel better.

Slow going…

I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive

I’ll fly a starship
Across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back again, and again and again and again and again…

These people are heroes in my heart and mind and soul… especially Johnny and Willy. I love them all.




Somebody To Love/ White Rabbit – Jefferson Airplane

Dolly is such a trip…gotta love her.

She has incredible insight, talent and drive and a voice to match.

But you knew that going in.


Sneak Peek: “Tennessee Jed” from Sullivan Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts on July 2, 1989. Catch the whole show in theaters May 11.


Ever so sweet.

These folks were the integrators, they managed to mesh my loves of blues, bluegrass, country and rock into something wonderful and unique.

Daddy Told Me

This struck me as interesting because I can actually relate to this story.

And that is a Top Level Weirdness.

Reminds me of someone special, it does!

Fabulous performance, too!
