Please allow me to include a little reminder here:

Having fun on Halloween is meant to be cool and harmless. Those good memories of haunted houses, costumes, scary movies, great food, great music, good times in all forms... It's all about Love. Enjoy the memories you already have, and the new ones you make today. Above all, please care about others, and take the time to let them know it.

Me, I'm afraid of spiders. (Absolutely true... I once broke two toes getting away from a 'tiny' spider, if there even IS such a thing.) Boris? No thanks. Warren's version of a werewolf, though, sounds like a cool cat to me. Trader Vic's? A nice steak? A Pina Colada? I'm in. And I always thought Warren's 'hair was perfect'.

May we all keep them and their families in our thoughts and prayers. May we send our love and good will their way, and may we respect their privacy as we would want done ourselves. We're here if needed and they know that.

Okay, Halloween. To me, this holiday and Edgar Allan Poe are inseparable. So for my last posts tonight, I offer three different takes on one of my personal favorites from Poe, "Alone". Thank you for allowing me to post so many times today. A Happy, SAFE Halloween Everybody!!!

Here's a story about one of those little everyday joys that sometimes come our way.

I read. A lot. Constantly. And I'm fortunate in that I only read what I want, nothing I have to do for work, or for college courses, etc. My favorite bookstore is only a few blocks from my home, so I'm in there at least once or twice a week. A week or so back, I ordered a copy of the new book about Jimmy Page "Light & Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page". This past Friday I got a note in the mail from the bookstore saying that they couldn't get the book, they were cancelling the order. Standard form letter. (I always try to use my local bookstore rather than an online dealer. Some may think it's old fashioned, but I like to support the local businesses if I can.)

Yesterday - Friday morning - I went to the bookstore to look around and tooled by the bargain rack. Big sale, 'Everything 2 for .99 cents!'. On the rack was the Keith Richards autobiography that came out in 2010. I grabbed it. I already had a copy, but for fifty cents why not have a backup? Kept looking, and down at the bottom was THE Jimmy Page book! Had a discount sticker on it. I took it up to the register and told the girl there my story; ordered it, cancelled, here it is in the bargains but it's a new release... Whatever the mixup, the price was correct, so I ended up getting both books, both first editions, both brand new, for a buck!

I've never found the proverbial farmer with a dusty, old, reddish-colored guitar shoved back under the bed that turned out to be a '59 Sunburst, but finding these two books like I did was still a cool little surprise. Made my weekend. They inspired me, and here's what I'm listening to this morning.

'We blew a gasket on The Grapevine.' Been there and done that. I was in a Peterbilt instead of a Rambler, but it was still a gigantic PIA!

TT-PT3@CG=PL&MM (Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald). I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a fan of Pop. Or at least what I consider good Pop. When this first came out, I thought 'what an odd combination'. But after one listen I thought 'what a great combination!'. I love the way their voices intertwine. Powerful and unique voices working well together. No screeching or howling as in so many songs today. Great tones playing off of each other.

TT-PT4@CG=GK&P (Gladys Knight & The Pips) Tone. TONE. To me, this song has great tone in every instrument, every voice, the mix, the works. What a song! Lyrics for adults, a drumbeat out of every cowboys and indians chase scene you've ever watched; strong, lush voices; in the pocket bass; a little rhythm guitar semi-hiding in there; sweet horns... Strong, powerful, warm ANALOG TONE.

Alright, the day after Thanksgiving here in The USA. As I mentioned in another post, I ended up with a group of people yesterday - mostly strangers - who made me feel very welcome. And I'm very grateful to them for that.

However, from the double-edged-sword department, there was a guy there who kept humming/singing/quoting snippets of this song off and on all day. He gave me a temporary (???) brain infection of this, and for whatever reason I feel the need to share it with others. I apologize in advance, and humbly ask your forgiveness.

I'm watching the new Stones documentary "Crossfire Hurricane" on the tube this weekend. I'm not a huge Stones fan, but I do like a lot of their stuff. And I really dig this movie. It traces their history from the beginning up through the 80's and beyond.

If I could only listen to one of their songs the rest of my days, it would be this one. 'Oh, Angie, don't you weep; I don't mind your great big feet...'

She's going into territory that's new and uncharted (and scary) to her, her mom and dad, and me. But she's faced a lot of challenges in the last several years, and she's made it through each and every one of them. I'm hopeful and optimistic that she'll make it through this too and be able to come back to her apartment and her life soon.

She's a big fan of Michael Jackson and his music. This may be her favorite song ever, so I'm posting it for her. Good Luck Chris!

James,

Hahaha... I just posted my (hopefully) last one for the day - Mandocello - and then I saw your post. I apologize for hogging the thread. Some might even call it hijacking I guess. NOT my intention I promise you.

I am soooo into music. There is music going in my life (and apartment) every minute I'm awake. I use CDs, albums on a turntable, even a couple of old cassette decks, though I rarely ever use those. I'm one of those people who keep a guitar on a stand right by my chair, so if I'm out of bed I've probably got a guitar in my hand. In another thread I mentioned what I'd hope to get from Santa if he were to come this year, but I have an SE One right now.

Also, I used to avoid YouTube like the plague for the longest time. I don't even know why I was that way, but I was. But nowadays most of what I watch on YT is old music videos, factory tours, tone reports, etc.

Again, I'm sorry if I'm being a problem. If I get to be too much, please just shoot me a note, or throw a rock my way, something.

Tuesday --- "True". The first time I bought one of their CDs, back around 1990, I had never heard of them. But I saw the picture on that cover - red roses with one white, with blood on them - and I couldn't put it down. What a fortunate day that was. One of those bands that never hit it big for whatever reason(s). Concrete Blonde.

I posted this in the little guitar thread, but it deserves a mention here too.
I love the acoustic backbone of this song. And the slide parts are so simple and soulful. Gilmour's music really works for me.


I think he's so talented. I'd love to see him live someday.

I did get to see Pink Floyd in DC for the Division Bell tour - awesome show. I missed the Delicate Sound of Thunder tour - which is really disappointing because I like the way Scott Page plays sax and the backup singers were much hotter (I feel a thread coming on).

But I'd really like to see Gilmour alone - especially if he did On an Island complete like he did at the Albert Hall.

Same here. I saw them in 1989 or 1990 and got to flirt with Johnette a little--made my night! They were here in Denver summer before last and still sounded good and seemed to be having a good time. Good to see some love for them.

Her voice has a quality that really gets to me. And some of those lyrics; 'I'll take my last ten bucks just as far as it will go...'. I was married when I first got into Concrete Blonde, and I played "Joey" and "True" so much that my wife wanted to shoot me! (At least I think that was the reason.)

I miss the days when MTV was really good. If you think about it, it's easy to come up with lots of artists who either made it, or saved it, or had their fifteen minutes because of MTV. There was a time when the network was A Force, and for good or bad, they changed the way the game was played. In the process they also helped with some social change (African Famine Relief, Rock The Vote, FarmAid, etc.) But like all too often happens, they lost their way and ended up imploding. Strictly IMO.

I'm jealous. I've never been to Red Rocks, and I've always heard it's a fantastic place to see a gig. I just finished Barry Fey's autobiography. His company - Feyline Productions - booked sooo many shows all over, but especially in Colorado and the upper Midwest.

I rarely watch it now. Once in a great while I'll see a "Behind the Music" listed that I'm interested it, but otherwise I pass it by. These days, the only music channel I look at very much is VH-1 Classic. Again, for BtM, or for the series Classic Albums of how "Rumours", or "Ace of Spades", or whatever was made.

Inspiration for this is coming from a number of places. First of all, Tom Keifer in on the cover of the current (Jan. 2013) issue of Vintage Guitar magazine. Then, there is a line in the song that goes 'It'll be awhile, before I get my peace.' That made me think of some people I'm aware of right now who are facing some difficult situations. Please hang in there folks; what you're facing will make you better and stronger once you come out the other side.

OK - I admit it. something about Lady Gaga is a guilty pleasure.

In this song, I'm both intrigued and impressed how the third word of each verse gets a little mini vibrato. It adds a texture to the song that I just don't get tired of. In the first verse, the word is "help" at 0:21. In the second verse the word is "see" at 1:21.

There are other instances of unexpected vibrato - but those two really stand out. As the vocals begin in each verse, they ascend in pitch to a fourth word climax. The vibrato on the third word increases the 'pull' to the end of the phrase.

In sticking with my 'Friday ------- Fool' theme, I offer this. Probably my favorite Rod Stewart song, or at least one of them. Please note, and I am absolutely serious about this: I'm posting this purely because I dig the song and the title crossed my mind earlier. No hidden agenda, or statement intended; just music for the enjoyment of it. If any of the mods feel it is crossing a line please let me know, or delete it, etc. TO ME, this song is tongue in cheek, but everybody might not feel that way, so if it offends anyone it is MY fault alone.

rugerpc,

I'm with you, man. I am not afraid to admit that at first I liked some of Gaga's music. (Now I find her tedious all the way around, but that's another subject.) "Bad Romance"? Cool. "Poker Face"? I liked it. But "Paparazzi"? SIGN ME UP!!! When I first heard it, I thought 'that's a hit'. Then I heard who it was. Of course it would be a hit. She's part of THE MACHINE. I am officially going on record here as being a Manly Man (if you know what I mean), but I dig this song! AND video! I don't know how many times I've seen this - gotta be in the several dozens - but I see something new every time I watch it. I never get tired of it, especially that yellow Mickey Mouse head bodysuit of hers at about the 5:20 mark. Let me help you with those laces, Baby...

So, here's "Paparazzi". And as a side note, maybe it's a little in the interest of fair play... sort of balances out the Rod Stewart take on things above. The difference? He only dreamt about it; she does it! Again; strictly music for music's sake.
Thanks to rugerpc for giving me the courage to speak up. :congrats:

I try to be, and I think of myself as, a pretty open-minded person. I like something about most every type of music. When it comes to Country, I like the older stuff. By that I mean anything from the Public Domain days up until sometime in the late 80's or so. IMO, after that, Country wasn't what it used to be anymore.

In the last few years some artists have come along who seem to be doing the kind of Country I thought was long gone. People who care about the songs, and the craft itself. I for one am glad to see it happening.

Here's one of my personal favorites of George Jones. I still get chills when I hear them head into the bridge and chorus.

You're welcome. Glad you made it. Here's how I handle the video thing:

While I'm watching a YouTube clip, I copy and cut the URL of it. Then, I come here and login, choose the correct topic and get to the right place, hit 'reply to thread'. That moves me down to the text box at the bottom of the page. I write a comment (or not), then I hit the icon for 'Insert Video', which on my screen is the third one from my right. Paste the URL in the popup screen, hit 'ok', finish my post, and hit 'quick reply'. Done.

My way is probably the old fashioned way, but it works for me. PLUS, it keeps me from being tempted to post twenty YouTubes a day, which would be a bit much I think. (And I almost always sign my posts in some way, but obviously it's not necessary. Just out of habit...)

Welllll... Tuesday morning (barely where I am. I'm getting around late today.) Lots of aches and pains in this ugly old body today. I feel like I've been beaten about the head and body with a dead muskrat.

REDSKINS WON!!!!! YAY!!!!! I was afraid my blabbing about them might jinx it - it's happened before against the Sowboys - but this time it worked out. One of the best MNF games I've seen in awhile, regardless of teams.

I need to pay bills, but I maaaayyyyyy talk myself into waiting until tomorrow. But at least I'm thinking about doing it. Thinking about Money... Listening to it too.

For some reason, this 'Pick a Card' thing a lot of us are involved makes me think of this video. NO idea what the connection is, but I dig it.

Odd Story Time: Maybe I shouldn't get into this here and now, but it's only Tuesday so why not? (Huh???)

Many years ago, I worked with a young woman. Odd, right? No, that's not it. Wait a minute... Many years ago I worked with a young woman named Paula. (BTW, I'm changing her name here to Paula, which is freaky, because her name actually was Paula, but I digress.) Anyhoo, Paula and I worked together for a few months. Paula liked to go out to bars. A lot. I was never much on that, for far too many reasons to get into here and now. I've been to bars of course, but usually any time I went it was to see the musician(s). But after nagging me for a few weeks, I agreed to go with her to some joint. "Ernie's Bar" or whatever. At the time I thought it an odd place to go for someone as young as Paula - she was in her mid-twenties - but I didn't say anything. The whole night was her idea, so whatever she wanted was fine with me.

The night rolled around and we went. An okay night, uneventful, just friends, two pitchers of cheap beer, no biggie. Paula got a little drunk, but not toasted. But she was bad enough that I didn't want her driving, so with her permission I took her keys. I planned to stop by her house the next day and bring her back to Ernie's to get her car. 'I jushhhh luuuuuve youuu takin' care o'meee.' It was a joke, like I was her protector. Even the ancient bartender with the Marlboro hanging out of her face said I was a sweetheart.

So at the end of the night we end up back at Paula's place in the sunken den at the back of the house. First bad sign? Busted TV. As in a-baby-stroller-sticking-out-of-the-screen busted. Odd, because Paula was single and had no kids. Second bad sign? Paula kept shushing me, telling me to keep my voice down 'cause I might wake 'em up!' 'Em?!? 'EM WHO? She lived alone.

Long story short, she had started acting odd on the way home, but sometime in the twenty minutes between when I took her keys, and when we drove to her place and made it into her den, Charles Manson moved into the spare room Paula kept for him in her noggin. She got up to go pee, was out of the room no more than five seconds (not long enough to even make it to the bathroom), came back, and it was Susan Powter time! STOP THE INSANITY!!! She heard things. She saw things. She - and I kid you not - sang me the entire song "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones, and did it at a volume roughly equal to something found on a Naval Carrier flightdeck. It was bad, it was loud, and it went on forever! I was worried about her waking up the entire block, nevermind whomever it was she was warning me about at the beginning.

Please note: When I describe these events to you, let me reiterate that I'm not talking about a gradual change over the span several minutes. I'm talking about the same amount of time that it takes to flip a lightswitch. Instantly. One second, it's no breakfast for me, thanks. Next second; CooCoo for CocoaPuffs!

Next thing I know, Paula's telling me why Bette Midler is a genius and why Texas 'ain't her kinda place' and racing through the house. I thought "Honey, EARTH ain't your kinda place! Somewhere along the way - and I'll change it up a little to keep it PG - her Levis ended up unzipped just slightly (!) and then I got an encore of The Stones again, only this time it was "Jumpin' Jack Flash", complete with W-I-D-E squats and the added attraction of her pink Granny panties bunched up and sticking out above her zipper like a weird fannypack.

I have lived some, let's just put it that way. I've seen some things, and been around more of the unseemly side of life than I wish I had. I've been around more drunks and ODs than I'd care to remember, but Paula was into uncharted territory. Every now and then she would vanish off into some other part of the house - thank God it was a one story - and I'd hear her banging into things and slamming doors, searching for a cigarette lighter that she never seemed to be able to locate. And breaking off into other songs! REO, Blue Oyster Cult, Skynyrd... Paula really seemed to be into the 70's arena acts.

All this time, I'm transfixed on the couch. I can't decide whether to make a mad dash for my car, call a cop, talk to The Heavens, start an exorcism, what... I thought about telling her I was more of a Who guy, but that didn't seem the right move. A couple of times as she zoomed by me I tried to grab her and rein her, but she was too fast for me. I had a gun with me, but I didn't want to shoot and wing her. WAY too much explaining to do on that one!

I decided to just try to ride it out and hope that she'd come down/calm down/ wind down/ fall down. As it happened, on lap God knows what, she was coming back through the doorway into the den, got her feet tangled up, and went down flat on her face like a bag of wet cement. She landed right in front of me, right where a coffee table probably sat at one time (before one of her previous 'episodes' perhaps). Perfect! I couldn't have asked for better.

I checked and she had a pulse and no bloodloss, but she was out cold. Oh well; at least she rode the storm out. I got her gathered up and into her bed, still in her clothes. She had lost her shoes somewhere along her journey, and I couldn't possibly have cared less. I wedged her and braced her with pillows like (hopefully) we all know to do in these situations to keep everybody safe. Then I got around and went home.

I didn't hear anything from Paula for two or three days after that. Finally, she sent some pal of hers to come to get her keys. Paula herself never had the courage to face me again, which was sad. She ended up quitting over it. It's wasn't that big a deal to me, but I guess it was to her.

You may ask why I share this story with you here and now? Because I always thought Paula looked a little like kd lang...

Just a little bit more about the kd lang video above if you'll indulge me. I don't know about everybody, but I am always listening. Every sound. The birds, the leaves on the ground, the geese overhead (I love that one...). I don't know how good my ear it, but it works for me. The sound on that kd lang tune is amazing to me. I can't remember off the top of my head who produced that, but they were good IMO. The sound on that is so rich, so complex. There are too many percussion instruments on there to count, yet they never step on each other or get boomy. It's lush, but not mushy. It's strong, but it's secure about it (if that makes any sense). The drummer, if it isn't Jim Keltner, is coming a close second. Round, warm drums and cymbals. Nothing harsh. And the little turn around he(?) plays at about the 3:30? Beautiful.

I'm almost as into drummers as I am guitar players, and this is a great one. Again, only IMO.

Great production on this one too I think, although not the same as for kd. I know who did this stuff; some major players on this one. This is an album we were just talking about the other day over on the 'Lyrics that matter' thread. I have to confess to being a little jealous of this guy. As stated above, I saw Paula's granny panties. This guy has seen whatever wonderous visions of beauty that Stevie Nicks wore back years ago when they dated. I'd proudly do her laundry.

What a lady. Married to Waylon Jennings for many years until he finally died with diabetes. Mother to Shooter. She was part of The Outlaw Movement with Willie, Waylon, and Tompall back in the 70's. The best voice? Maybe not, but to me, it's one of the prettiest, and it makes me cry whenever I hear it. I don't want to get sappy here, so I'll just put it this way: I wish that at some point in my life I had had a love like the one between Waylon and Jessi.

Wednesday again already. Back in the early days of music videos, things weren't always so well thought out. Here's a prime example.

In this video, we see a Canadian band at Le Studio, and they often have free time on their hands. After all, studio time isn't expensive or hard to come by, right?!? Among the sights included here are:

Scenes from the Quarter Finals of the Canadian Junior Table Hockey League, along with one player showing his displeasure after a loss by seeming to urinate on the rinkette.

A tour of some of the experimental bike racks of the area.

A How-To guide on making coffee while keeping your hair out of the pot.

Phil Collins moonlighting while on holiday from Genesis.

A quick view of Le Studio's infamous parking setup, which is across a small lake and accessible only by rowboat. By all accounts it is the worst in the entire recording industry. (It must be a killer in the Winter!).

Note: A little known fact is that once their career had slowed down somewhat, this band was able to tour the world yet again, this time as Goodwill Ambassadors for Maxwell House.

I'm so lucky sometimes. Take yesterday evening for example. I had the great (mis)fortune to have to call my ex-wife. Did you ever smell a pile of burning tires? That's the face I make when I think of having to speak to her. Why did I have to call her and tarnish an otherwise perfectly good Wednesday evening? SHE OWES ME MONEY! DUE ON THE FIRST MEANS JUST THAT, FOOL! F-I-R-S-T, as in THE NUMBER ONE!

She's so charming. After we were done and I got my toe straightened out and splinted, I needed music. Loud. Angry. Aggressive. Music. My ears are still ringing this morning...

I'm in a better mood now. And I've been listening to different versions of this all morning. If you're seeing this, oh blackness in my cloud, oh itch down my collar after a haircut, oh aroma of angry skunk, this is called irony. 'Sunsine of YOUR Love'? Didn't know there even was such a thing!

Oh, My Dear EX-Battleaxe,

Once again, my money is due on THE FIRST DAY of each month. Not 'around the first'; not 'the first half of the month'; not 'whenever you get around to it'; not 'whenever the bar cuts you off and sends you home with whatever pennies you have left at the bottom of your two-for-one special purse that you bought from the old lady with one eye that also does fortune telling in space 87 at the flea market'. First. One. Uno. Un.

Listen. You know me. We were together nearly twenty-five years. You know how I am about The Blues. You also know that I've spent a lot of time in Mississippi. And Louisiana; New Orleans in particular. I am familar with Voodoo. I heard through the grapevine that you had car trouble today... Just a coincidence? Karma? Wonder what Robert Johnson would say?

If you see me running around the block on the night of the next full moon with a chicken, a pack of JuicyFruit, and a jug of Quaker State, don't say I didn't warn you. Make your next move your best move; PAY ME!

Sunday. When I think of Sunday, I think divinity. I think of divinity, I think miracles. I think of miracles, I think Smokey Robinson and The _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _!

I'm not anti-technology by any means, but when I listen to these songs I feel a little sad. IMO, for all of the advances in the making and recording of music, NOTHING can replicate the sound of these musicians with their 'simple' instruments and studios. That resonance, that feel, that space... This music has a built in swing to it.

P.S. --- Speaking of another kind of divinity, does anybody else remember the old highway roadside chain Stuckey's? I'm not sure, but I think they went out of business years ago. They had these things they called Pecan Logs, a stick of divinity rolled in chopped nuts. Ultra rich, ultra sweet, and ultra good!

UPDATE- After I posted this, I went and did some snooping. Stuckey's is still in business! If you've never been to one you might want to give them a try. Great shakes, burgers, etc., and the aforementioned Pecan Logs. A combination gas station/diner/soda fountain/tourist trap gift shop.

I was thinking of waiting until Friday to start these, but I changed my mind. I'll still post 'regular' things that I'm listening to, but for the next few days I'll mix in some Holiday stuff too. I hope that's alright with everyone.

I thought that these first three would be a good way to start. They can remind us how really fortunate we are, and who deserves the credit for so much of the freedom we have.

So, with that in mind, and with the appropriate thanks to Santa or ???, please let me say this: C'mon PRS Goldtop DGT and/or Stripped 58! You made one wish come true, how about another?! You made an old man happy once, you can do it again, can't you? From one bearded old guy to another, there's extra Oreos in it for ya!

Friday in The USA. The start of a long holiday weekend off work for some fortunate poeple. The start of a period of extra work and stress for others. And for many, some combination of all of the above.

May each of you have a safe and happy Friday and weekend.

I started tonight with The Barenaked Ladies, which led me to this one they did with Sarah McLachlan. After that, it's gonna take me a while to get back on track. I absolutely LOVE Sarah's music, especially this song. I could listen to this thing ten times a day and never get tired of it. She often has that Stevie Nicks abstract thing of 'what is she talking about?' 'What does that line mean?' Who Cares! Honestly, some I get, some I don't, but all I like.

Note: This video of "Building..." has the censored audio, so it's safe for all ears. It's only one word, but it's a biggie to some, so better safe than sorry here.

Staying with my mini-theme of Sara/Sarah. FLEETWOOD! IMO, one of the greatest, most underrated rhythm sections ever. Mick and John are magical together. I've babbled on before about how I'm into drummers and their styles. Mick is so incredible. LATE in the beat, but not too late. Builds that tension. And the tone of his drums. He tunes them - and they mix them - to sound round and soft rather than harsh and painful. Compare Mick Fleetwood's drum sound to that of Tommy Lee; night and day difference. Hard to believe they're using the same instrument. (No knock on Tommy intended AT ALL.) Same idea if you were to compare David Grissom's guitar tone to that of, oooh, say... mine for example. One guy sounds like a genius, the other sounds like he slammed his hand in the door. Anyway... :flute:

A few days ago I watched a documentary about Earl Campbell. For those not familiar with him, he played football for The Texas Longhorns, and was drafted by the Houston Oilers where he was coached by Bum Phillips. He was the Jim Brown, the Emmett Smith of his time, and IMO he was better in some ways than either of them. Nowadays he has a number of health problems due to both the pounding he took in his career, and a degenerative spine condition he was born with. He is a genuinely nice, down-to-earth guy, no star attitude or any of that, always has a smile on his face, and doesn't complain or have any regrets. He loves country music, and at the end of the documentary he sang a line or two from this song. So, this is dedicated to him...

Tangent time again... This time, it's Merle Haggard. I imagine most people have heard the name, but if you haven't really listened to his music, you might want to give it a try. To me he's a National Treasure. He ruled the charts in the late 60's/early 70's, but as with most great music, his songs of that period stand the test of time IMO. Totally unique, and one of the last of his kind.

Alright..... Sunday night. Let's see... Redskins won today! :top: Plowboys didn't. :biggrin: I'm starting this post with the late greats Les Paul and Mary Ford. Have you ever listened to recorded music? If so, then say a thanks to Les Paul. Multi-track recording, backward recording, echo, tape delay, electric pickups... he either invented these, or had a hand in making them viable and workable, along with many other things. Home recording. He and Mary used to tour, and he'd drag along a mini version of a studio with a reel-to-reel in a couple of suitcases. That way, they could set up and record whenever and wherever the mood hit them without having to search for studios and available time. He predicted that someday anybody who wanted to would be able to record in their homes on quality affordable equipment, and today that's taken for granted. I never had the honor of meeting him, but I will someday. I'm looking forward to it.

In the last video, the one by Canned Heat, get a load of that battered old Les Paul Goldtop. And that tone! It'll melt the ice in your cup of Christmas cheer!

Hi everybody. Christmas Eve in The USA. Please let me say a couple of little things before I get going here.

First of all, I've always posted things that I actually listen to. Most of them are things that I listen to on a regular basis; favorites. But this week I've obviously focused more on holiday stuff, and some of it I just happened to find when I was looking around somewhere. Some is brand new to me, and maybe to you as well.

Secondly, I have a few surprises lined up for tomorrow. Music, fun, and hopefully something for everybody. I'm not trying to hog the thread, or veer off in a wrong direction; it'll just be my way of trying to give out a smile or two.

Thirdly and lastly, this is a personal note to Saint Nick himself: Santa, I haven't given up on you. I think - and hope - that I'm well-ensconced in your "Nice List", and I'm counting on that to matter when and where the time comes. Please go back and check some facts if you don't believe me. For example, there's that snooty woman behind the counter at the drugstore the other day. She actually carded me when I bought that bag of catfood for my neighbor, but how did I react? Did I laugh at her? Did I get angry? No. I just thought 'well, she's probably new and inexperienced, and nobody told her that she just needed to check IDs on people buying cigs, beer, wine, etc.', and I showed her my driver's license as I brushed my long beard out of the way. And what about what happened at the doctor's office last time? When I came out to go home and found that some doofus had parked so close to my pickup that I could only open the door about two inches? Did I get mad? Well, okay, yes I did get mad on that one, but I didn't do anything except gripe to myself. I could have left a note for them under their windshield wiper explaining what I wished would happen to them. I could have tried to coax a bird to fly over and bomb their door handle. After all, the pigeons in that parking garage know me because I feed them, so they probably would have been willing to help out if I'd have asked. But what did I do? I dealt with it with quiet dignity and grace.

My point here, Santa, is that I'm being good. So keep that in mind, will ya? Goldtop color, birds, Stripped58, DGT, Log Canoe Circle, Stevensville... These words mean anything to you, Man? C'mon, you're gonna be going through Maryland tonight and tomorrow anyway, aren't you? What's the harm in making one more delivery? Why should UPS, FedEx, and DHL have all the fun, huh? I dont have a chimney, so I'll even save you some steps and meet you at the door. Remember those Oreos I mentioned? I'm willing to up the ante with ice cold WHOLE milk (NO 2%!) and a six pack of your favorite adult beverages for you to share later with Mrs. C.

Think it over, Santa. In the words of Lou when he sang with Foreigner, 'I've always been a patient man, but my patience has reached its end'. I'm not there yet, but it's getting close...

Lloyd/Goldtop, who has ALWAYS believed in you, Big Red Man!

Note: As you may or may not know, I'm not a fan of the Dallas Plowboys. One reason for that is how Coach Tom Landry was treated when Jerry Jones bought the team. Replacing a man is one thing; throwing him out with no notice and zero respect is another. So I included this last video as a tribute to Coach Tom Landry himself.

I didn't grow up listening to country music (other than Johnny Cash), so I kind of discovered Country in a backwards fashion. Some of the punk bands I listened to would cover a country song from time to time so I started to investigate some of the original artists work. I've grown to have a tremendous appreciation for old school country over the last 20 years or so.

That's interesting Shawn. I was sort of the same way, only in the opposite direction.

My dad was OLD fashioned, and things were done his way or else. He was a big fan of Hank Williams, Lefty, Maddox Bros. and Rose, and especially Bob Wills. Country was the only music allowed on the radio. I liked it, but I wanted more somehow.

About the only common ground we could ever find when it came to music was Elvis. He respected Elvis for going into the service and choosing regular duty over going into the USO. When I could finally have my own radio(s) it was all over. Freedom! The world opened up for me. I clearly remember wanting to go to Woodstock, which was absolutely out of the question. I wanted to see The Who and Jimi, but I was too young to go alone, and my parents wouldn't have gone there at gunpoint.

Now, I'm glad my dad was the way he was. It exposed me to a lot of music that I probably would have avoided if I had had a choice, and I would have missed some great stuff.

I also dig that about Punk bands. Some songs just seem to work no matter what.

My parents like rock & roll. I remember looking through my parents record collection when I was a kid. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, Who, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and my mom wore out her copy of Rod Stewart's Every Picture Tells a Story. The only country records they owned were from Johnny Cash who, in my opinion, transcends genre and everyone can claim Johnny as "one of their own".

I want to dedicate this to both Shawn and my dad. My dad for starting me on the path to loving music, and Shawn for helping me remember when and how it all began.

My folks didn't have many records or tapes. When I started spending my allowances on music they thought I was silly. Their attitude was 'why not just turn on the radio when you want to hear music?'. Buying and collecting albums made no sense to them. Wherever they are now, they must think I lost my mind years ago! ;)

P.S. --- 100% with you about Johnny Cash. He cannot and should not be pigeonholed in any way IMO. If any label fits him, I think it's simply "American", but even then he still belongs to the world.

Thanks Lloyd, I wasn't familiar with the Maddox Bros until now.

Thanks Lloyd, I wasn't familiar with the Maddox Bros until now.

You're welcome.

I only know about them because my dad was so crazy about them. He died in 1982, so I'm a little surprised that I remembered them. I don't know much about them, other than (I think) they were part of the early days of Bakersfield. Precursors to Lefty, Merle, Buck, and all of those guys. Listening to them now, I think they were closer to rock and roll, or at least rockabilly, than my dad realized. Pretty uptempo stuff. Maybe their hillbilly stage costumes swayed him...

Note: Shawn, in case you or anyone else is interested, I just did a quick search about them. Here's the Wikipedia result. Not a lot to it.

I'm going with an obvious choice this time. It's a little early, but it'll be here in case anybody wants to hear it later tonight. There's also a link that might be of interest.

I don't do much on New Years anymore. I have a very low torerance for a lot of the things New Year's Eve celebrations have become over the years; no offense meant to anyone. If you do go out, PLEASE be careful. And PLEASE don't take any chances behind the wheel, or even riding with someone who may have had too much. And while you're at it, keep an eye on the person next to you. The point is for us all to wake up tomorrow and start a new year that is better than the last one.

To me, this may be the most beautiful song ever written. It's definitely in my top five.
