    Another Joe South song that was popularized by Billy Joe Royal but IMO done much better by Linda Ronstadt here

    IMHO, the BEST track on LR's Get Closer album.

    Several years ago, I was in Vegas. I could have seen George Carlin, but opted for The Beatles' Love instead. "Carlin plays Chicago often, so I'll see him there," I said to myself. A couple weeks later, he was gone.

    More recently, I was invited to meet Johnny Winter in Milwaukee. We had something else planned that day, so I didn't go. 10 days later, he was gone.

    Oh, well...

    Since nothing is "really off topic" here in the all about music...I mean....if you stretch your imagination....everything is all about music. So with that feeble attempt to excuse the fact that I'm posting this picture...here it is.

    A pretty common site here in rural Chile. Much of the roads are dotted with brick/concrete block walls, that are covered with some sort of vegetative growth...to hide all the little dwellings within. Many, if not most of those dwellings seem to be selling little snacks, breads, drinks, etc. For the passerbuyers. That's what this is...and they are everywhere along the countryside....no signs...you just have to know.

    Actually, yes, I did. Seriously. These Chileans LOVE...and I mean...LOVE to play loud music. I really don't know what sort of systems they have...but something tells me they don't have KLIPSCH speakers. Regardless....it is blaring most all the time...from somewhere. Funny actually.

    It's time for a birthday salute...but first... Happy Mother's Day to all those special moms out there...we wouldn't be here without those dedicated unsung heroes who brought us into this world....I have fond memories of my mom...such an unselfish person that made a lot of personal sacrifices to provide me with everything I needed growing up...


    Now for that birthday salute...it's for Paul David Hewson who turns 55 today...better known as Bono from the band U2...I really loved their early work..songs like Sunday Bloody Sunday...New Years Day... Where The Streets Have No Name...they had a unique sound...they became too Hollywood for my tastes in their later work and I pretty much lost interest...although I don't think Edge gets enough credit for his guitar skills...

    I agree, I loved them in the 80's, but they started to lose me in the 90's. The first time I saw them was right after War came out. It was a free outdoor concert in the middle of Hartford. Only about 500 people showed up to see it. It was one of the most fiery, passionate performances I've ever seen.

    This is a great overlooked single that came out between October & War.

    Many times, bands are simply better when they are not so famous. That seems to be the case....I guess boredom settles in.

    Nine years ago, my Mom passed. I miss her very much and think of her love and generosity every day. So, here from 1958 is a record she wore out. From an Ed Sullivan appearance, Domenico Modugno doing his worldwide hit Nel Blu Dipinto di Blu, better known as Volare.

    Another clip for Mother's Day: When my Daughter was born, I took six months off. So many tines, we listened to Laura Nyro's Mother's Spiritual album. It begins with To a Child, presented below in this version. She later did another studio version on Walk the Dog and Light the Light, as well as many live versions. The video is a montage of pictures and album covers. BTW: my Daughter's name is Emily, as much for Nyro's song Emmie, as for Simon & Garfunkel's For Emily, Wherever I May Find Her.



    Although she only played a handful of times in Chicago, I got to see and hear her twice. Absolutely wonderful!

    Nyro wrote Eli's Comin', And When I Die, Wedding Bell Blues, Stoney End, Stoned Soul Picnic and so many hits for others. What, you say you don't own any Laura Nyro? Whatever are you waiting for?

    Laura was a truly great songwriter. Todd Rundgren, Elton John & Elvis Costello all cite her as a major influence.

    I want to wish James Purify a HAPPY BIRTHDAY today....he is 71...he was half of the R&B band James and Bobby Purify and they had a hit song... I'm your puppet in 1966...this isn't the usual duo...you see Bobby Purify was actually Robert Lee Dickey..the cousin of James Purify...but he morphed into Bobby Purify for a stage name...in 1971 Dickey retired from the music business for health reasons...so James Purify went the solo route for a few years until he partnered up with Ben Moore who assumed the name of Bobby Purify(II)..and if that wasn't enough they re-recorded I'm your puppet again in 1976 and it climbed to #12 in the UK...Moore(Bobby PurifyII)was quite the vocalist in his own right..he was nominated for a Grammy in 1983 for his gospel singing...in 1998 he went blind from a severe case of glaucoma and left the music business...BUT someone intervened on his behalf and talked him into rejoining the music industry...this time with a group he would fit right in with.. the gospel band Blind Boys of Alabama...the man that brought him back in the fold...none other than Ray Charles..and as the late Paul Harvey would say...that is the rest of the story!

    If anybody had any doubts about Heart deserving to be in the Rock Hall of Fame they should just listen to Ann Wilson sing Stairway To Heaven...the way she held those final words so long is unreal..Jimmy Page was digging it in the audience..
