Joni Mitchell-Help Me

Bill Withers

My favorite vocalists of all time are Marvin Gaye, Elvis, Otis Redding, Dean Martin and Bill Withers. Bill Withers is finally being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, way too late, the most underrated performer of them all. Long time Navy veteran, aircraft assembly worker, the guy exuded "honest, humble and real."

He hasn't played in decades, the above is a touching tribute he wrote for Celtic great Bill Russell. Word is Withers might play at his own induction ceremony. I hope he does.

Joni Mitchell-Trouble Man

Joni Mitchell - Carey

My favorite track from one of my favorite albums. Love Joni Mitchell. This song features the great Steven Stills on guitar and bass.

Space Jazz - Earth, My Beautiful Home - Chick Corea, L. Ron Hubbard

In my younger days, as a big Sci-Fi fan, I read a lot of L.Ron Hubbard's Space Opera pulp fiction. Ron's Scientology 'religion' is also very entertaining pulp fiction. A former girlfriend who palimonied herself into 8 million bucks joined Ron's 'cult' and was separated form a healthy fraction of her ill gotten lucre. She's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, though she did eventually wise up and split the Scientology scene.

Chick Corea needs a fucking psych evaluation.

Many famous musicians came through Scientology then left. Al Jarreau was involved on and off for years. Burton Cummings, leader of the Canadian rock group The Guess Who, did a drug detox program at Scientology's Narconon in Los Angeles, then got out of Scientology as he found out more about it. I met him at a party Paul McCartney gave after the "Wings Over America" tour in 1976. Arguably the best electric bass player alive, Stanley Clarke, was involved for years both when in a group with Chick Corea, and afterward, but is no longer involved. Van Morrison did quite a bit of Scientology in San Francisco via my former roommate, rock pianist Nicky Hopkins, then after leaving he came out with the album No Guru, No Method, No Teacher. Apparently, it took Van a bit longer to realize, as Elvis Presley once stated, "that son-of-a-bitchin' group. All they want is my money." (And the celebrity bragging status he would give them.) Numerous musicians came into Scientology via Corea and left, often very unhappily, such as Corea's former Return To Forever members: percussionist Airto Moreira; Moreira's wife, vocalist Flora Purim; and guitarist Al Di Meola.
Famed jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo did more than leave - he filed a $21 million lawsuit against Scientology before his death.

It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry (Alternate Take)

                                           Really cooking version ...backed up by the Band with some hot guitar playing by Robby R.

JOE COCKER -With A Little Help From My Friends- 1969 Woodstock..

Joe Cocker - Darling Be Home Soon (Mad Dogs and Englishmen)

Grateful Dead & Stephen Stills - Black Queen (4-16-1983)


Norman was sort of a one hit wonder, but I like his other stuff too. Ry Cooder plays excellent mandolin on this one. Petaluma is a nice town btw, the street scenes for American Graffiti were shot there, standing in for Modesto in the 50s.

The Eggplant That Ate Chicago

Norman Greenbaum - Spirit in the Sky (PSK Remastered)

"I actually played the lead guitar parts on Spirit, using a 61-62 SG Les Paul, a 68 Marshall Plexi 100w half stack and a home-made overdrive box in front of the Marshall. Regarding the 'beep beeps' as I call them, when the producer asked me to play some fills in between the verses, as a joke I said how about something spacey like this and I did the pickup switch/string bending thing. I saw him stand up in the control booth and he said "that's it! let's record that!" so we did. (There was no slide involved, just my fingers, and I used the bridge humbucker and the pickup switch). The fuzz part is Norman with a built-in overdrive circuit built into his Tele pickguard."
"I've been asked a lot over the years how I did the 'beep beep' guitar parts on Spirit, so for any guitar players out there who would like to learn how, try the following: Using a 2-pickup Gibson, set the neck pickup volume to zero, bridge pickup volume to max, with the pickup switch in the middle position (with Gibson wiring this gives you silence in the middle position). Do a string bend, picking the B & E strings together with one hit, just ahead of the beat, then use the pickup switch to kick in the bridge pickup in triplets (6 per bar) as you let the B string bend down two frets."
"I mainly used two positions on Spirit, which is in the key of A. For the low position, fret a stationary C note (8th fret) on the E string while bending the B string up to an A note for your starting-position, then pick the two strings together once while the guitar is silent and work the pickup switch as you let the A note bend downwards to a G. For the high position, do the same thing at the 15th fret holding a stationary high G note on the E string while bending down from E to D on the B string."
"I must give credit to Jimi Hendrix as my inspiration for this technique (as well as for the double-string riffs I did at the beginning of the Spirit solo tail section). I saw him perform live in a small club in Madison, Wisconsin and loved the way he used his Strat pickup switch to create staccato feedback on songs like Voodoo Child. The difference is, on a Gibson you can start from silence and create the on/off effect, which worked well with the downward string bending thing I did on Spirit."

Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth / Mr Soul

Was this a Canadian TV show ? Don't recognize the MC but he's typical of the time, introduces these nutty kids with the crazy name, really kookoo, but they're making a lot of dough'. No disrespect to Steven Stills, he did some good stuff, but Neil blows him out of the water. Mr. Soul is a much better song IMNSHO. I'm a big Neil Young fan. Y ? Hell yeah ! CSN ? Not so much ( with two cats in the yard, life used to be so hard,  blah, blah, blah... blah )

For What It's Worth - Buffalo Springfield - Live @ Monterrey 1967 (Intro...

Do believe Steven Stills was on guitar mostly on the original studio version. Neil Young was absent, David Crosby was present. Too bad.

Muppet Show - For What's it's Worth

Both pretty decent if you ask me. Nice flute, Cher.  Have a question for you. How much Neil Young guitar is on the Springfield version, thought I could tell but now I'm not so sure? How much Stills lead is on the cut?

Quintessence - 01 - Giants (by EarpJohn)

Jigsaw - Dr. West's Medicine Show & Junk Band

Sweet Smoke - The Soft Parade

kind of a neat stereophonic mix near the end.

Incarnation by Mark Ryden

Stumbled across this one. Mark Ryden was at Palomar J.C. when Robert and I were taking art classes there in the early 80s. Never really got to know him, but he was a talented standout. I remember seeing photos of a black 60's Lincoln Continental that Mark had airbrushed with his spooky cartoonish characters - it was really well done. He became quite a success, in Japan especially apparently, had some books published, has done really well. Congratulations Mark.

Michel Polnareff - Time Will Tell (1966)

Who knows where the time goes - Fairport Convention

Trees - Fool

                                               One of the very best UK folk psych bands from the early 1970's.

Brainticket - There's a Shadow Watching You

                                           They made 3 fine LP's "Cottonwoodhill", "Psychonaut", and "Celestial Ocean", in the early 70's. 

Brainticket - Places Of Light [Cottonwoodhill] 1970

                                                 Hang in there on this one...a personal fave from back in the day. The whole Cottonwoodhill LP is very worth checking out if you have thirty minutes to float downstream.

Inara George - Fools In Love

                                               Lowell's daughter. In keeping with Blue's Karen Mantler (Carla Bley's daughters) post. The seeds don't fall far.

The Ramones 1975 live arturo's loft.

Ramones ! 1975 ! The other band as tight, as intense, as X. Maybe even more. RIP Ramones.

X - Breathless (David Letterman 1983)

Was lucky to see X in 1980 at The Skeleton Club downtown San Diego with The Blasters and Top Jimmy & The Rhythm Pigs. Without doubt X put on the most intense show. My only problem with X is that I have to crank up the ol' steerio to eleven. Every time. Not good on the old ears.

New Radicals - You've got the music in you

A very big fave.

Doors - Touch Me, Mono 1968 Elektra 45 record.

As my mom is on her final jet path, I have been thinking a bit about her music. My first memory of singing with her was at the Unitarian Church, holding hands, singing We Shall Overcome. She was a big civil rights person. I remember her loving Doris Day, Que Sera Sera, Ethel Merman, Barbra Streisand. She loved the Doors from the beginning. Took me to my first concert, HemisFair 68 in San Antonio, to see a serious hard rock band whose name now escapes me. Later went to see the Dead with her in San Francisco. My mother, Adelle Roberts Sommers Fisher Manfred Rosenberg was Kiss's first agent and maintained great relations with the band for years. Took me to a commune to hear the band Spirit in Flesh in 1969 on some bus junket with Rolling Stone magazine. Later she got really into country music. Will miss her.

Bottom eleven

I was thinking about the most overrated guitarists out there. People talk about them in hallowed terms but I personally don't get it. You may love them, you may like them, I may do the same or even despise them, who cares? I just don't think they are top shelf in my cabinet.

Understand that this is just my opinion and that these guys are still better than I will ever be. But my top, er bottom eleven:

#11 - Ron Wood - Thin tone, uninteresting playing. Decent with Faces, if unspectacular.

Ry Cooder - bit of a bore. Occasionally brilliant but rarely so.

David Lindley - tough to sound good when you are playing with a whiner like Jackson Browne. Great on bazouki and zither I am sure but pretty somnambulant overall. 

Eric Clapton - Great in Cream, mostly sucked when he got straight. Great singer, now he sounds like a guy playing like Eric Clapton.

Robbie Robertson - can find every sour note on the fretboard.

Bob Weir - used to think he was great, and he was on the cowboy songs, doesn't sound near as good once you've come down. Skills have diminished greatly with age and ...

Buddy Guy - godlike with Junior, lost it somewhere along the way.

David Gilmour - playing the same riff for 40 years.

Warren Haynes - snore.

Jeff Beck - couldn't hold Roy Buchanan's pick. Fusion period was great but music mostly lacks heart and feeling.

Jimmy Page - don't get me started...

Hawkwind - Sputnik Stan

Jerry Engler And The Four Ekkos - Sputnik (Satellite Girl)

Honey and the Bees Band - Psychedelic Woman

Ghana psych


Zimbabwean music, South African dancers. Excellent.

Pleasure Seekers - What a Way To Die

60's girl band from Detroit. Rockin'.


Sammy Davis Jr.

60 years ago today Sammy lost his eye in the car accident in San Bernardino. Should have worn his mezuzah.

From Wiki: ...Davis nearly died in an automobile accident on November 19, 1954, in San Bernardino, California, as he was making a return trip from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. In 1953, he had struck up a friendship with comedian and host Eddie Cantor, who gave him a mezuzah. Instead of putting it by his door, as a traditional blessing, Davis would wear it around his neck as a good luck charm. The only time he forgot it, one night in 1954, he crashed his car on the way to a gig in California. The accident occurred at a fork in U.S. Highway 66 at Cajon Boulevard and Kendall Drive (34.2072°N 117.3855°W). Davis lost his left eye to the bullet-shaped horn button (a standard 1954-55 Cadillac feature) as a result. His friend, actor Jeff Chandler, offered one of his own eyes if it would keep Davis from total blindness. The offer was not needed.Davis wore an eye patch for at least six months following the accident. He appeared on What's My Line? wearing the patch. Later, he was fitted for a glass eye, which he wore for the rest of his life.

Stone Free is a great alternate version recorded at Pye Studios London, October 1966.  Hey Joe was released in England December 1966 and was evidently recorded at the same session, with backing vocals by English girl group The Breakaways - it sounds to me like the version on Are You Experienced. It was released in the US May 1st 1967 as a single b/w '51st Anniversary.

Come on in my kitchen

Michael Bloomfield, solo acoustic. This was recorded two weeks before his unfortunate passing. He was sitting in that night with the Sir Douglas Quintet at the Catalyst club in Santa Cruz. 1/31/81. The last time I personally saw him was at the Tribal Stomp in 1978. One of my musical heroes.

Clear Light - Street Singer

Gloomy psychedelic rock from Los Angeles, 1966. Clear Light was an early term for a form of LSD placed on a gelatin wafer called windowpane, or so I am led to believe. This acid is supposedly what Steve Jobs was tripping on, 250 mg. nothing special imho but larger than the later disco doses.

The music is a rather difficult listen.

Blue Guitar - Earl Hooker (1953)

Led Zeppelin - You Shook Me (Deluxe Edition) (2014)

Jeff Beck -You Shook Me, Blues Deluxe (take 2)

English guitarist Jeff Beck recorded "You Shook Me" with the first Jeff Beck Group line-up during the sessions for the Truth album in May 1968. Beck's hard rock arrangement has been called "bone-pounding" and was a highlight of their live performances with "dynamic interplay between Jeff's guitar and Rod's [Rod Stewart's] voice".[15] Beck utilized fuzz-box and wah-wah pedal guitar effects for his extensive fills around Stewart's vocals as well as his solo. The song concludes with guitar-amplifier feedback, which Beck described in the Truth liner notes "Last note of song is my guitar being sick — well so would you if I smashed your guts for 2:28".[16] Beck biographer Martin Power added "Jeff's solo at the end of 'You Shook Me' indeed lived up to his claim, vomiting all over Rod's shoes at the conclusion".[17]
For the recording, studio session musician John Paul Jones (who played bass on "Beck's Bolero" and the Yardbirds' "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago") contributed the organ part, which he would do later for Led Zeppelin's version.[5] Although Columbia distributed a promotional 45 rpm "demonstration record" of "You Shook Me", a single was not released to the general public. The song is included on Truth and several Jeff Beck compilations.

Muddy Waters - You Shook Me

You Shook Me started as "Blue Guitar" a slide-guitar blues instrumental recorded by Earl Hooker on May 3, 1961 for Chief Records. The instrumental was just a 'warm-up' song "loosely fashioned on earlier Hooker songs" which was recorded unbeknownst to Hooker and released in 1962 on Age Records as "Blue Guitar".

Leonard Chess, owner of Chess Records, liked the song and suggested that Muddy Waters overdub a vocal track on top of Blue Guitar. On June 27, 1962 that's exactly what Muddy did, and the record was released as You Shook Me, with lyrics credited to Willie Dixon and J.B. Lenoir.

Boyhood pals Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page first heard the song, reportedly, on a 1963 Pye Records 4-song EP.

You Shook Me was covered by The Jeff Beck Group with vocals by Rod Stewart five months prior to Led Zeppelin's well known version on their first album.

The first and only single released by the first band of Cork Marchesi, leader of Fifty Foot Hose. The Ethix were Marchesi's first group, an R&B band, and Bad Trip was an experimental recording they made at Marchesi's mother's house. Cork put the four band members in four different rooms and asked them to play exactly 2:36 of whatever they felt like playing. Marchesi recorded each room, mixed the tracks, and the resulting tape was released as this single.

Steve'n'Seagulls ! Great band, great band name ! Here they cover Iron Maiden's song about the Charge Of The Light Brigade in the Crimean War. Finnish guys playing a song about fighting Russians, makes sense. The only other Finnish pop musician I know of is Jorma Kaukonen. Here they cover Iron Maiden's song about the charge of the Light Brigade in the Crimean War. Purists might be put off by these guys but I really like em. American Indians might not approve either, but I even like the war bonnet. Funny but they are so tight. Especially the Jimi Hendrix of banjo players.
