Love these guys long may they reign!
No kidding! Sold out the Troubadour in LA one year after appearing before a small crowd in Los Angeles.
Thank you for posting this Dan. And ThunderRd for the introduction! Iirc.
They were the greatest. Maybe a decade before you and I were born they reigned the popular music world.
Immigrants have always made this country. After we nearly exterminated the Original Americans that is.
Shazam! Ignoring the female moves in this video is impossible. Smoking hot.
She really is one of the greats. Thank you for introducing this song to me!
That it's been thirty years since this supergroup started is amazing. I guess when you reallly like or love some "thing" time is of no consequence.
The dealer has the works? Never worked that way. But then again the sellers going dry was very infrequent in RVN. And you sure as sugar didn't need works over there. Only the most very dedicated dope suckers needed injections. Met such a guy once when I had to explore unfamiliar territory because all the sellers I knew were dry. Sheeite that was an ugly experience. Nevermind.
The Velvet Ug was never a favorite. I still don't believe that they were really familiar with life underground. Maybe I have that wrong, but their alleged mystique was never that mystique to me.
Surly I do,":O}
Maybe the piccolo gave high hopes for a "culturally uplifting" song?
She's not unadulterated joy for me but she has her moments:
If this doesn't move ya, nothing will. Cuban music and Ry Cooder:
Poor little girl surly out danced anyone in our video!!
"A little Musicality Please"**
** A quote from a wonderful Australian movie, "Ballroom dancing"
The line is delivered by a six year old watching her completely untalented elders.
They just let that Cooder do any damn thing he wants...I wish my life could be like that!! LOL
Have you heard him sing Scatt? ":O}
I don't know who you have to be to be a junkie.
But Nico was hardcore. She addicted her 5 year old son to H.
Said they were both happier that way.
That spells hardcore degenerate junkie to me
No quibbles with a "hard core" label for this woman. Got her five year old son hooked on heroin? That is an accomplishment to be proud of in upside down inside out world, that is.
Ry Cooder is one of the greatest, he travels far and wide in the world of music.
Hate to kvetch but some music from Cuba without Ry Cooder moves your hips and feet MUCH better. Some of the best music from Cuba leaves me open mouthed in appreciation and shock that some music can SMOKE like that.
Even the repetitive piano part leaves me breathless. The piano part has a name which I haven't learned, oh the shame. I mostly find the piano part annoying.
I know, I know. Only my unsolicited opinion.
An old choice one for me, hope you like it as well.
George I want you to sit down and think about what your doing.
I sincerely doubt that TR posted this for any reason other than he wished us to enjoy it.
Musical tastes being what they are I'm sure he realizes than some might not enjoy it as much as he wishes we could.
I've tried many times to reach out to you on this very topic.
So let me put it bluntly.
If I had a daughter and you met her Would you really tell her that she is pretty but there are just so many better looking women?
If I spent years building a house for the homeless would you tell folks I did a poor job and that many could have done it better?
In both these examples does it even matter weather you are factually correct or no?.
You will have done an injury i n order to establish your expertise.
In order to be sure the world knows you are selective and refined in your views
George we already know that of you. We are your friends and so you don't have to be right.
You just have to show up.
As your friend I now need to tell you you can at times be very petty.
When I write something I think has value I expect criticism, sometimes I wish there was more criticism to allow my ideas to defend themselves.
But when I post music I love, music that taken my heart and has elevated my sensibilities
I do so in the hope that we might rejoice together.
Like TR I realize it may not grab others as it does me.
But then again it might and so it's worth the risk that it will not please others as it does me.
Others do not love my wife as I do, They have wives of their own to love.why should it be any different with my music?
But what I don't expect is to have another make unflattering comments upon any aspect of her being.
Appreciate her or leave her alone.
So why doe George continue in this vain?
So that's what I'd like you to contemplate. Why yell at another man's dog?
Call him over, pet him and few will object. But compare him unfavorable and your view will not be welcome.
Even if your a great judge of dogs his owner does not want to hear anything bad about his dog.
The owner doesn't care if conformation is a bit off.Dog lovers care little of that. They want to tell you about the things he's done, what he likes or cats he has chased. They want you to recognize his right to be as he is.
They want you to love him too. If you cannot..Discretion IS the better part of valor.
Fear not, yours is not a great sin. But it is a persistent sin. one you should look more deeply into.
Stop and think. Does anyone else do this? Why don't they? Why do you?
You are my friend, be a friend too of that which I love.
