Blasts From the Past

Liberty -vs- Tyranny

Politics and the BS that it entails is both tiring and so much BS. So, tonight, or I should say early morning on the east coast I've decided it is time for some uplifting rock and roll.

Now going back in time even further.

Further back.

And now for some real blues.

I saw the king of blues perform this live. It was awesome, and my mother wholeheartedly agreed. She was a HUGE BB King fan. Guess I got my taste in music from Mom.

In closing I leave you with the Kingston Trio...

Wishing you all the best of whatever life has to offer. May the music of the ages wash over your soul and give you the feeling of well being that only great music {and perhaps a fine women or man} can provide,

Good night {or morning} and I'll be back.... someday.


  1. Man, how good was Tull back then, huh? Locomotive Breath - a classic!!

  2. One of the best in their time. Ian Anderson played a mean flute!

  3. Les, did you see the Grammys tonight? Most of it was the usual pablum but some good stuff from Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, and a moving tribute to the Beach Boys. Good Vibrations!

  4. Always loved Tull....Elvis just never did much for me...but I have to admit...he was the stuff. BB well one of the greatest. However... I never heard the Beck rendition of a day in the life...awesome.

  5. Music is (was) one of my other hobbies, having played high note big band jazz trumpet back in the day. Oh, and dance (ballroom) among other lesser hobbies...and things...
