@Blurtman I got that on a CD it's the first album by Pink Floyd wearing mod clothing big collars and cuffs polka dots big belt buckles bell bottoms wide-wail corduroys, suede, fringe and flowers Heheheh.

Very exclusive mod fashions only sold at bourgeois places like the Piccadilly Circus in London and in Hollywood in my early teens. I'm sure somewhere in New York had them too.

There used to be this awesome store on Hollywood Boulevard that sold knee high moccasins, suede vests, jackets and some had humungous fringe and with glass beads on them too. It was called Native Elegance.--nothing like it anywhere AFAIK.

And spoofed on Austin Powers. Syd Barret songs on the first one. Neil Young got into the Indian look in Buffalo Springfield.

Bit of trivia here on the song Needles and Pins - a lot of people are unaware Sonny Bono of Sonny and Cher fame co-wrote the piece.

In Hollywood, Sonny had formed a friendship with another struggling musician named Jack Nitzsche. They kept in touch, and in 1962 they composed a song called “Needles And Pins”. Jackie DeShannon recorded it and had a # 84 hit with it in 1963. The Searchers would cover “Needles And Pins” ten months later, and take the song to # 13 on the Hot 100.

More including when Sonny & Cher met and when she was homeless etc.

Maybe a good "anthem" for the high school crowd and their teachers these days - anyone remember this ?

I remember in the late fifties, I was pre-teenage, rock n roll really was exciting just like you see in this movie of Jerry Lee Lewis. LOL He really put on an exciting show too.

Great Balls Of Fire.

It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)

written in the summer of 1964, 53 years ago

Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child's balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying.

Pointed threats, they bluff with scorn
Suicide remarks are torn
From the fools gold mouthpiece
The hollow horn plays wasted words
Proved to warn
That he not busy being born
Is busy dying.

Temptation's page flies out the door
You follow, find yourself at war
Watch waterfalls of pity roar
You feel to moan but unlike before
You discover
That you'd just be
One more person crying.

So don't fear if you hear
A foreign sound to you ear
It's alright, Ma, I'm only sighing.

As some warn victory, some downfall
Private reasons great or small
Can be seen in the eyes of those that call
To make all that should be killed to crawl

While others say don't hate nothing at all
Except hatred.

Disillusioned words like bullets bark
As human gods aim for their marks

Made everything from toy guns that sparks
To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
It's easy to see without looking too far
That not much is really sacred.

While preachers preach of evil fates
Teachers teach that knowledge waits
Can lead to hundred-dollar plates
Goodness hides behind its gates
But even the President of the United States
Sometimes must have
To stand naked.

An' though the rules of the road have been lodged
It's only people's games that you got to dodge
And it's alright, Ma, I can make it.

Advertising signs that con you
Into thinking you're the one
That can do what's never been done
That can win what's never been won
Meantime life outside goes on
All around you.

You lose yourself, you reappear
You suddenly find you got nothing to fear
Alone you stand without nobody near
When a trembling distant voice, unclear
Startles your sleeping ears to hear
That somebody thinks
They really found you.

A question in your nerves is lit
Yet you know there is no answer fit to satisfy
Insure you not to quit
To keep it in your mind and not forget
That it is not he or she or them or it
That you belong to.

Although the masters make the rules
For the wise men and the fools

I got nothing, Ma, to live up to.

For them that must obey authority
That they do not respect in any degree
Who despite their jobs, their destinies
Speak jealously of them that are free
Cultivate their flowers to be
Nothing more than something
They invest in.

While some on principles baptized
To strict party platforms ties
Social clubs in drag disguise
Outsiders they can freely criticize
Tell nothing except who to idolize

And then say God Bless him.

While one who sings with his tongue on fire
Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society's pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole
That he's in.

But I mean no harm nor put fault
On anyone that lives in a vault
But it's alright, Ma, if I can't please him.

Old lady judges, watch people in pairs
Limited in sex, they dare
To push fake morals, insult and stare
While money doesn't talk, it swears
Obscenity, who really cares
Propaganda, all is phony.

While them that defend what they cannot see
With a killer's pride, security
It blows the minds most bitterly
For them that think death's honesty
Won't fall upon them naturally

Life sometimes must get lonely.

My eyes collide head-on with stuffed graveyards
False gods, I scuff
At pettiness which plays so rough
Walk upside-down inside handcuffs
Kick my legs to crash it off
Say okay, I have had enough
What else can you show me ?

And if my thought-dreams could been seen
They'd probably put my head in a guillotine
But it's alright, Ma, it's life, and life only.

Portuguese sounds beautiful when a woman sings

IMHO this is a very nice version of this. A better one is perhaps with Robert Shaw and the Atlanta Symphony. The "ultimate" recording of this is only available on vinyl (as best as I can determine) and was done back in 1953 by Robert Shaw and his chorale at Carnegie Hall. (Link to Amazon Page below)

Something a bit different, perhaps my favorite genre of music.

On a side note if anyone else out there in Patnet land is into this type of music, who do you think was the best Lucia and also the best Norma?

For now I am sticking with "The Diva" for Norma and "La Stupenda" for Lucia.

@BayAreaObserver Savoy Brown Tell Mama guitars all sound great. What an iconic song about leaving the south for opportunity elsewhere. Nice vocals. Some nice changes in there make this their climactic showpiece. Southern through and through.

The CCR is like the best tune they ever did. I never realized the duration of it was only 2:22. Kind of a waste of a great idea there for encores, interludes, changes breaks I bet they used it live to the hilt. After the break one of the guitars strums and it emulates a saxophone backing the rhythm. I like that great tone.

Both as southern rock as it gets.

CCR is from the Bay Area, El Cerrito to be precise. Savoy Brown from across the pond.

I didn't know that. That's interesting.

It doesn't change my take on their music: Both as southern rock as it gets.

I understand you aren't saying that you disagree.

Nope. I was quite surprised to learn that CCR was not a southern band. Never would have pegged them to be a Bay Area band.

@jazzmusic - Is something wrong with the clip, I thought it ran for the full 5:22, maybe some thing is wrong with it. Never realized CCR was a Bay Area group as well Blurtman.

As far as the southern rock sound for some reason this always comes to my mind first as well as sounds of the Georgia Satellites.

I liked Ma's performances of Piazzola's cello concerti but I find myself listening to Beiser's Oblivion more often than Ma's interpretations of Piazzola. Thanks for the heads up on McClinton.

AiA - Delbert also had a decent hit with a tune called Givin It Up For Your Love which I posted some time back as a reply on one of TPB's posts but here it is again.

Exploring some of the more "obscure" Fleetwood Mac in their modern configuration. Tango in the Night - Never listened through this one before, but it was actually a huge album for the band, in spite of a coked-out Stevie Nicks. In many ways, Buckingham's re-purposed solo album. It's second biggest selling studio album, if you can believe it. Synthesizers were being widely adopted at the time. Can't say I can think of a smash hit off the album, but pleasant pop tunes, perhaps a tad over-produced.

Here's a pleasant tune:
