"Yes we can can!" said Little Nicola.

I don't know too much about the legislation, just the broad outlines.

Apparently, some sponsors are taking a second look and it might

be DOA by now. While we are getting the YT videos for nothing,

they're something I wouldn't pay for anyway.

 

Sean was in the band for a time and dated one of the two ladies, can't

remember which one. They've been inactive for a while, but with pop bands,

you never know. Their second CD is really good, not a bad song on it.

My half bad. The wording is a bit ambiguous, and Faron Young was far from

a one hit wonder. He had a very long and successful career in country music.

He had a number of #1 hits. I guess Hello Walls might be termed his signature

song. It was also an early effort by songwriter Willie Nelson.

 

I know very little about jazz royalty--Count Basie or Duke Ellington or King Oliver.

I am familiar with Prince though.

Totally above my pay grade. I have enough trouble keeping up with

pop, rock, etc. There's just not enough time to get involved with jazz.

That's my problem and not that of the artists.

I probably spend less time on jazz than you do, but my brain soaks up insignificant information (at the expense of significant information) like a sponge.

I'm in the mood for a really off-the-wall trivia question......Can you name at least three normally non-singing sports stars who released records? (I can think of three who have Philadelphia connections---there must be others.)

I've got to go out early this afternoon, so I'm pressed for time. The only

one I can think of off hand is Smokin' Joe Frazier. I know he was a singer

and I'm guessing he probably cut a record at some time, and he was from

Philly. Ummm, keep the night job, Joe. Maybe Ali put out a record too,

maybe a poetry reading one.

Frazier fronted the group "Joe Frazier and the Knockouts". Then there were the huge hits, "Echoes of November" by Phillies' slugger Richie Allen, and "By the River" by Wilt Chamberlain. I defy you to find youtubes of these.

Yeah, I was brought down by the lack of visual stimulation in that video.

 

Actually, Cream are good enough that you don't need visuals to enjoy their stuff - four minutes or so of such good musicianship is sufficient.

I'll take Hotel California, one of the few Eagles' songs I genuinely like.

 

Actually, maybe the song I'm posting today is thematically linked to Hotel California. Coincidence. Maybe not, though, depends on what one makes of the lyrics to both tunes.

 

This is from the new Paul Simon album, "So Beautiful So What?" The song is called The Afterlife.
