      Just for old times' sake.

      Who could have imagined that Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard would be among the last surviving 50s rockers? Both of them managed to last into the 2020s, even though they both seemed to belong to the "live fast/die young" school of thought.

      I spoke to Jerry Lee Lewis once, and he didn't even try to hit me or shoot me, or anything! It must have been in the summer of 1972. He had just finished an appearance at a wrestling arena in a small Georgia town. Earlier, his guitarist at the time, Buddy Church, had told me how he would be careful to reposition himself after the first verse of the finale, "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On," so as to be out of the flight path of the piano bench.

      Jerry Lee followed the piano bench off the stage a few minutes after that happened, and he walked past me backstage. His shirt was off by then, so he could mop the sweat from his face with it. As he walked by, I said, "Keep on shaking!" He glanced my way, apparently only slightly annoyed, and said, "Man, it's a hot one!"

      That's the entirety of my encounter with the late Jerry Lee Lewis.


      edit: correcting image

      second edit: Duh! The closing number was "Great Balls of Fire," not "Whole Lotta Shakin'".

        I was just listening to Europa Radio Jazz on Paul's great Radio Now Playing plugin when I heard someone singing "Maybe I'm Right" and the album cover displayed:



        I couldn't help notice that it was a plagiarized album cover from 30 years earlier:



        I might be a bit late to the party though as another 37 years have passed since Nilsson released the second album.

            You say potato..........

            The Sinatra album is my favourite Sinatra Album with Frank at his peak and great arrangements by Nelson Riddle. I have about 60 of Nelson Riddle's collaboration albums after becoming a fan in 1984 when I was fortunate enough to see the great man in concert with Linda Ronstadt at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland. He died the following year.

            I didn't like Sinatra as a teenager in the 60's and then I became disconnected from the music scene as I travelled around for nearly thirty years, but buying a Squeezebox V2 in 2005 has kindled an insatiable interest in music and I'm particularly interested in the hi-fi (post 1955) recordings from the American music scene, much of which wasn't readily available here in the UK in those years.

            Thankyou Logitech

              Few years ago was having a listen to random music on Bandcamp and came across a track called Stars by Keabsmad and have been on a journey of so many great tunes stopping off at Tom Damsbaek, Graymoth and MOTHBOY

                I've been listening to Innse Gall by Joshua Bonnetta. It's an LP of field recordings assembled as a soundtrack to a film about the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. Bonnetta was there for a period making all these recordings later assembled into this LP. It's a lovely presentation with a 60 page photo book and the film for download (I'm travelling and haven't had an opportunity to download that yet). In style, it's kind of like Chris Watson's field recordings.

                I'm very fond of the Outer Hebrides, having taken several holidays touring the islands on a tandem bike - haven't been for a few years and this makes me want to return.

                        Haven't posted here in ages... need to do something about that.
                        Currently listening to Marc Moulin - Placebo Years. Great album to chill on a Friday night (with a good whisky).

                              Am Fenster - Radio Edit

                              A shortened version of the full track by an East German group called City. The full version includes an amazing electric violin solo. The radio edit just hints at the full version.

                                I have been playing the soundtracks to Twin Peaks and Lost Highway - marking the death of Angelo Badalamenti.
                                Also started watching the whole of Twin Peaks on DVD - an even better way of enjoying his soundtrack...
