Music on a Rainy Friday

This just knocked me out. I’m sitting here at ritual Roasters in San Francisco, and this gave me chills. For some reason the back of my ears was tingling:

“Anonymous has left a new comment on your post ‘James Brown – Full T.A.M.I Show Performance, 1964″‘”

   I’ll have to watch this when I get home. But it reminded me of this great one too… did you ever see:

James Brown & Luciano Pavarotti – It’s a Man’s World ?



I’ve been on the road for 2 days, and here are couple of the songs I heard:

-“I’m a Rocker” by The Raspberries (A great band that never made it big-time. This song is such pure rock n roll, like Rod Stewarts “Hot Legs.”

-“Johnny Sincere” by The Dead Poet’s Society

In case you don’t know it, you can click on any of the Topics (like Music” or “Homesteading” down on the lower right side of this blog and you’ll get posts on just those subjects.

  1. Hey Lloyd,
    This is Doug from the Pelican Inn Track Club. I had to respond to this as my very first concert, in 1966 was James Brown and his Fabulous Flames at Barton Coliseum in Little Rock Arkansas. I was 14 years old, and I'm certain that my buddy and I were the only skinny white boys among the fans packing that crowded theater. The sights, sounds, smells and emotions were intoxicating and unlike anything I'd ever experienced. He payed all of his standards, including It's a man's world, Papa's got a brand new bag and Cold sweat. This falls into the category of life changing experiences of which I've had many.
