Glen Campbell on Austin City Limits “Wichita Lineman” (1985)

The one and only Glen Campbell performs his signature tune “Wichita Lineman” during his only Austin City Limits performance, taped and aired in 1985.

Oh my, what a wonderful man. A wonderful guitarist and singer and musician with tributes flowing in.

Love him, I do, for the lovely influence this guy had on me and yes, continues to.

The Only Piece I’ve Ever Written for Violin and Tuba by P.D.Q. Bach

Jeanne Skrocki on violin and Scott Sutherland on tuba perform the famed Sonata for Violin and Tuba by PDQ Bach before throngs of admirers in the Frederick Loewe Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Redlands.

Simply wonderful!

And beautifully played, too!

Joe Bonamassa & Tina Guo – “Woke Up Dreaming”
From the New Album: http://joeb.me/JBCarnegie

 

Wow man, Joe’s really on a roll!

And Tina! WooHah! Never heard her before.

A cello is awesome – not so common in the Blues, eh!

This is good. Yup. The world needs more of these collaborations.

 

Peace

 

Frank Sinatra – Chicago

I do not own the rights to this song.

Lyrics

Chicago, Chicago–that toddlin’ town.
Chicago, Chicago–I will show you around. I love it.
Bet your bottom dollar you’ll lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago.
The town that Billy Sunday couldn’t shut down.

On State Street, that great street, I’d just want to say –
They do things they don’t do on Broadway.
They have the time, the time of their life.
I saw a man, he danced with his wife.
In Chicago, Chicago, my home town.

Chicago, Chicago–that toddlin’ town.
Chicago, Chicago–I’ll show you around. I love it.
Bet your bottom dollar you’ll lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago.
The town that Billy Sunday could not shut down.

On State Street that great street, I’d just like to say –
They do things that they never do on Broadway.
They have the time, the time of their life.
I saw a man, he danced with his wife.
In Chicago… Chicago… Chicago.
That’s my hometown!

Oh Frank, man, how do you #ing do that?

I’ve bin wantin’ to play that in honor of the new mothman batman type dude who’s been making very swoopy appearances in that notorious town called Chicago lately. Notorious. Hey man, they got their own special Blues, you dig?

Who better than Frankie? That was recorded in one take, you know. ONE. #ing awesome. What happened to that?

Before I can’t steer back… Our own Lon Strickler of Phantoms and Monsters is hot on the case along with Manuel Navarette of UFO Clearinghouse. Lon has made this fab map that I couldn’t resist sharing. It’s interactive and the numbers will take you further down the rabbit hole. Also listen to Arcane Radio for updates.  Map’s updated with new ones as they happen but I don’t know if this instantiation will or not. We’ll see.

= )

Pretty localized… critter’s staying in that one general place … doesn’t look so large mile-wise.

Looks like it makes forays straight in from a starting place then does the same thing a little ways on down the line.

I really want this to get sorted out because it is the strangest stuff going at the mo.’

Yep, even stranger than the dogmen … although I really dig them too!

Lemmy & Wendy O’Williams – Jailbait (HD)

 

RIP Wendy and Lemmy.

She’s scaring the Motörhead fans =)

LOL But it has been noted that pop metal venues never talk about this girl, Wendy Orleans Williams from the Plasmatics. Can’t imagine why. She was more than all that. She was the only girl Lemmy was ever afraid of. They were very close.

 

Peace

 

THE ZOMBIES – 1965 – “She’s Not There”

Beautiful. Classical. I love this.

Always have. Always will.

Interesting to see how the culture has changed… dig that tv host having them say their names.

And I corroborate … she’s not there.

Peace

 

Canned Heat – Going Up The Country 1970

Canned Heat – Going Up The Country 1970

I’m going up the country, babe, don’t you wanna go?
I’m going up the country, babe, don’t you wanna go?
I’m going to some place where I’ve never been before

I’m going, I’m going where the water tastes like wine
I’m going where the water tastes like wine
We can jump in the water, stay drunk all the time

(Instrumental)

I’m gonna leave this city, got to get away
I’m gonna leave this city, got to get away
All this fussing and fighting, man, you know I sure can’t stay

Now baby, pack your leaving trunk,
you know we’ve got to leave today
Just exactly where we’re going I cannot say, but
We might even leave the USA
‘Cause there’s a brand new game that I don’t want to play

(Instrumental)

No use of you running, or screaming and crying
‘Cause you’ve got a home as long as I’ve got mine

(Instrumental)

Delicious!

I’ve known Doc online for ages from when he did an online video education type thing. It was a pleasure finding out he’s even more skilled as a blues keyboardist of some repute. This is his current gig—before Good Cookies he was with the Vincent Hayes Project. Hey here’s one of those for you : )

Oo!

This lady is mighty fine…a wonderful addition to my fledgling Blues knowledge.

Her passion comes through, and the band has a nice, gritty quality that complements her voice.

Imma like it a lot.

Enjoy

Peace

 

Sweet!

Haven’t heard much from the lad lately, so this was a nice gift to us all.

A song from his new album Signs, Jonny was kind enough to let us download this one ahead of time. Album’s out now, so if you dig and have the loot… go for it.

Enjoy, Peace
