IMO this performance falls a bit short of the recorded version's rhythm counterpoint between Taj's on-the-beat staccato strummed National Steel guitar and Jesse Ed's on-and-off-the-beat riff, then overlaying the Bass riff making it perfect and very infectious. It was that precise arrangement that made it one of my very favorite recordings.

(The J.Geils Blues Band of the time also knew the infectiousness of slow and open arrangements. We saw them often at the Woodrose Ballroom in Deerfield MA.)

Taj's jazzy delayed vocal (again over a Jesse Ed riff) on "cuckoo" (same album) is also brilliant.

BTW I went to UMass with Taj, and remember the "Battles of the Bands" between "Taj & The Electras" and "Steve & The Esquires" at the Student Union. Taj played jig band music iwthi his fingers on a Fender (Strat?), and Steve did a signature backflip off the stage during a "cover" (NPI) of James Brown's "Please, Please." I also remember jamming with Taj in the practice rooms while he played John Henry on slide banjo...HB, Henry!

Incidentally, Buffy (St. Marie) was at UMass during the same period.

Oh Happy Birthday today to Taj Mahal!! One of my favorites and this has good footage of Jessie Ed.

Janese...since you  appreciated Keith Richards's humor you should read his book, Life. Full of humor, he's a really funny guy.

You've got that right Diane.  It's getting closer and my excitement is building.  Did you get to see Keith Richards on Jimmy Fallon the other night?  I recorded it.  He is really quite funny.

Album review: Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi, “Rome”

It’s one of the year’s most adventurous unions, this teaming of Italian composer Daniele Luppi and Danger Mouse, the producer and artist who is one half of both Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells, with help from
capricious doer of cool things Jack White.

The end result, “Rome,” is vast and ambitious and atmospheric and weird: the spaghetti western reinvented as a hipster art project. It’s a jumble of interludes and semi-conventional tracks (such as White’s spindly “Two Against One” or the spacey indie-country song “Black,” one of several tracks here featuring Norah Jones) with the feel of a soundtrack.

In addition to White and Jones, Luppi and Danger Mouse recruited a number of Ennio Morricone old-timers, many of them veteran musicians and singers from such classic Morricone scores as “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” They lend the proceedings an equal measure of liveliness and sobering authenticity.

— Allison Stewart

Recommended tracks: “Theme of Rome,” “Black,” “Two Against One”

Hi Glenda,

That was awesome!  I got to see Eric at Summerfest a while back.  I was right up front and got some great pics which you can see in the photo section here. 

Hope Diane got to see Keith Richards on Jimmy Fallon the other night.  He's really quite funny.  He was promoting his book and his role in the Pirates of the Carribean movie.

One week from tomorrow and I'll be rocking to Jon Bon Jovi.

Hi D,

The smaller venues are so cool and the price is right too.  Only paid $25.00 for our tickets.  I checked the site and no photos yet.  They may post some on their facebook page.  If they do I'll let you all know.

Hi Lenny,

You're very welcome!  I think if I had the choice I would have taken Neil too.  Wishbone Ash was great but Neil is amazing.  Seen him once in concert.  Well, one week from tomorrow and it's my Bon Jovi concert.  Can't wait.  Look for my review on the Bon Jovi topic page.

Yeah, love the Stones. If you haven't read Keith's book, Life, I recommend it.

But today, Happy Birthday to Eric Burdon, and wait, yes, for Janese.......he's with Bon Jovi on this one. ')

Hey there!

Thank you for the great review.. It is really smart of you to pick a venue you like and go there on a regular basis..  First row eh  : )  Cannot do much better than that unless you are playing in the band.  I will go and check the pics at the site.  Pretty soon bands will be fighting over you for number one fans : )

Hi Diane and all,

Here's my review of the Wishbone Ash concert:

The band was truly awesome despite the fact that there is only one original member (Andy Powell).  We were in the very front row.  I didn't bring a camera because usually it is too dark and the site posts pictures at www.shankhall.com.   The guys played like they had been together from the beginning.  Bob and Andy had the moves down like Richie & Jon.  Some great guitar playing.  Also, a great drum solo.  We had an awesome time and we're now looking forward to Savoy Brown with Kim Simmonds at the same venue on June 2nd.

Listening to the Argus CD by Wishbone Ash in preparation for tonight's concert.  Really excited.  We have a reserved table since the bass player in my friend's band knows all the guys from Wishbone Ash.  How cool is that?

Hi and welcome to the group and congratulations on having such a talented granddaughter.

I am not sure how you mean you would like to add her site here?   You may post it via a link in your post so that we can check out her music if that is what you mean.  Let me know.

Is she on youtube?

Right now I'm listening to "Oob la de, oob la da" by the Beatles on Pandora.  Not one of my favorite Beatle songs, but its on a "70s Lite Rock" station.  In response to an earlier post here, earlier I heard "Ohio" and "We gotta get out of this place" which are so symbollic of those times, and fill me with many contrasting emotions.  I used to "Rock on", now I "Lite Rock".  The times, they are a changing.
