Marlow...Marlow...Marlow.

Where did you get the Beefheart?
The tape is the same one I played for Donini/Born In the Desert a Long Time Ago, when I first encountered his reachness's presence here on this topo. Sho' nuf.

And Sr. Survival then chimed in with some other BH.

But what about after that?

Can't remember: Ask Buddy Guy, tryin' to tell the truth every time he sings the blues.

The Beefheart is everywhere. You don't have to search for it. It comes to you.

I saw Leslie West with Mountain at Red Rocks in the summer of 1970, they opened for the Jethro Tull Benefit album tour. We got there early and it was a warm day, Mountain came out for a sound check and played for all of us that were there for close to an hour. That was my second Red Rocks concert, first being the dynamic billing of Ten Years After and Grand Funk Railroad.....ahhhhhhh the golden age of Red Rocks.

R.L. told the story about this song's lyrics once. It was about his wife making him a mayonnaise sandwich. Unfortunately, the mayonnaise had gone rancid and so he went on an told her, it's bad, you know!

Nobody got the blues?

Maybe it's a good thing you got instead?

Hope so!

Track two is Soon Forgotten, in which we learn of infidelity which happened on April 12, 1951. A black day for Muddy.

It became know as BLACK THURSDAY for the US Air Force.

April 12, 1951 was nicknamed "Black Thursday" by USAF pilots after three MiG-15 squadrons with 30 aircraft attacked three squadrons of B-29 Superfortress bombers (36 planes) protected by about a hundred F-80 Shooting Star and F-84 Thunderjet fighters. The MiGs were fast enough to fly past the non-swept wing escorts and engage the B-29s. Three B-29s were shot down and seven more were damaged, with no casualties on the Soviet side.[3] Following this US sorties over Korea were halted for approximately three months. US Bomber command was forced to discontinue daylight attacks on Korea, and changed to night missions using small groups of bomber aircraft.--Wikipedia

Never heard Joanne Shaw Taylor before. That is some pretty serious, not to mention soulful talent.
