crosby poem for garcia

Cause I’m missing him tonight

If I had to pick one of us to speak for us all
He would have done the job well
Coming from some crazy angle
He’d have known which story to tell
he’d tell the truth about real music
he knew the truth long before he fell

His fingers would touch his guitar neck
My axe would be pressed to my chest
A chord and a melody would walk in the door
Closely followed by all of the rest
Magic and tragic and triumph and storm
and all the things we had sought on our quest

You get your ego out of the way of your hearts
The whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts

A sort of field pops into existence
Everything lifts off the ground
You know that you’re doing what you were born to do
That you’re using the gift that you’ve found
To create some lift and break all the chains
with which all our people are bound

he did it for all the right reasons
and made all of our mistakes
a more human man you could not find
an accelerator without the brakes
but he had the brains and the heart and the spirit
Garcia really had what it takes

gems from my bootleg collection…


“Modern Love”

David Bowie 

Serious Moonlight Tour Rehearsal featuring Stevie Ray Vaughan

Las Colinas Soundstage  - Dallas, TX - April 27, 1983


My favorite bootlegs are these oddball rehearsals and studio outtakes — mistakes and all, working out the bugs.

After seeing Stevie Ray play at the 1982 Montreux Jazz Festival, David hired him for the “Let’s Dance” recording sessions, and invited him to go on the road for a year with the Serious Moonlight Tour, as these recordings bear witness.

That never came to pass, though, as Stevie Ray decided at the last minute to do his own thing with Double Trouble, going into the studio to record “Texas Flood.”

In the end, Bowie’s Serious Moonlight tour and Stevie Ray’s debut album were both great successes, but I wish Stevie had been on the tour when it pulled into Madison Square Garden on July of ‘83 with me in the house.

RIP Stevie Ray. I never did get a chance to see you, and that is among my biggest rock-n-roll regrets.

“Post World War II Blues”

Al Stewart - 1973

Al Stewart has been called “the Bob Dylan of England”and “the most literate songwriter of his age”, often incorporating political and historical themes in his songs. He was part of the Soho, London scene in the late-60s, rooming with Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull fame. This song is about those times, and Al described it as his answer to Don McLean’s American Pie.

‘Cause music was the scenery
Jimi Hendrix played loud and free
Sergeant Pepper was real to me
Songs and poems were all you needed
Which way did the sixties go?
Now Ramona’s in Desolation Row
And where I’m going I hardly know
It surely wasn’t like this before

I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting the man, and I thank him for giving me my TUMBLR name.
