Best 10 minutes I’ve spent all day!
Anyone else digging the latest Bear’s Den album “So that you might here me”? I’ve been loving it. https://open.spotify.com/album/4UGUJOgcTFGVA2ki2fFByI?si=PW-JD3GfRVOSYRuS7TVgzg
This is so good
New Joe Pug:
makes my cry in a good way…
All Woodstock. All the time.
Check out WXPN Philadelphia - or on the web…
They are streaming the whole concert live 24 hours a day for the next few days. Listening to Santana - Soul Sacrifice now.
Of course I may have to backfill a little on what I missed.
Ah Lee Hazelwood, music so eccentric and awful it’s gotta be good.
His label signed Gram Parson’s early effort, The International Submarine Band. Gram’s feelings about Hazelwood are spelled out in ‘Sin City,’ where he discusses Hazelwood’s odd office door:
This old town is filled with sin
It’ll swallow you in
If you’ve got some money to burn
Take it home right away
You’ve got three years to pay
But Satan is waiting his turn
This old earthquake’s gonna leave me in the poor house
It seems like this whole town’s insane
On the thirty-first floor a gold plated door
Won’t keep out the Lord’s burning rain
Really enjoying Justin Townes Earle’s newest.
Hillman and Parsons were fresh from bad romantic breakups and Hillman, a founder of the Byrds, was still deeply embittered by the implosion of that band and the machinations of its manager, the late Larry Spector. “Spector was a thief, it was as simple as that. And his condo, he lived on the 31st floor behind this awful, garish gold door.”
