That was quite some High Sierra Storm there mouse. Reminded me of Storm Thurmond and that young Dylan fellow and Storm's rich wealthy daughter. They were so much older then.





Coulda used a made up story, so he says to Little Steven (the original Disciple of Soul).



Anyway, may you climb on every rung

From that interview (I'll scan the thing later.)
"Leroy Carr gave me the inspiration for singing the blues. He was a terrific blues singer and he played with a fellow named Scrapping Iron or Scrapper Blackwell, something like that. I play in almost the same style they do. Iíll take Floyd Smith for blues playing today, and Iím crazy about Alvino Ray for his style...

He uses a Hawaiian guitar, but you canít make it sing the blues. I canít play the Hawaiian guitar, canít make a note on one of those things. But I like his tone and his style."

From Wikipedia:
Alvin McBurney (July 1, 1908[1] Ė February 2, 2004), known by his stage name Alvino Rey, was an American swing era musician and pioneer, often credited as the father of the pedal steel guitar. He was mainly associated with orchestral, big band and swing music, and towards the end of his career, jazz and exotica.

"It will be too late, baby,
I will be gone.
So long, baby, so long."

From Wikipedia on Floyd Smith:
Floyd Smith (January 25, 1917 Ė March 29, 1982[1]) was a Black American jazz guitarist.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Smith studied music theory as a teenager and learned ukelele as a child before taking up guitar. He spent his early career in territory bands, playing in groups such as the Jeter-Pillars Orchestra, the Sunset Royal Orchestra, Eddie Johnson's Crackerjacks, Andy Kirk's band, and the Brown Skin Models. His 1939 Floyd's Guitar Blues lap steel guitar instrumental with Andy Kirk and the 12 Clouds of Joy's was the first ever electric guitar hit record. He enlisted during World War II and following the war led his own small ensembles in soul jazz and straight-ahead settings. He played with Bill Doggett early in the 1960s and then with Hank Marr and Wild Bill Davis.
In the 1970s Smith moved into record production, founding a label in Chicago. Among those he produced was disco star Loleatta Holloway;supposedly, though not confirmed, he married Holloway later in the decade.
Smith died in Indianapolis, Indiana in March 1982, at the age of 65

Serious blues hounds--
Have any of you ever bothered to read White Jazz by James Ellroy? Recommended for afficianados of R & B as well as jazz.

The clubs were crawling with talent in LA in the late fifties/early sixties and some of the action is rather violent, shall we say, but that's Ellroy. A lot of history is put into his fiction, however. Look him up on Wiki, check out his LA Quartet.

All the same, I have been travelling and driving and finding my trail with a friend over my shoulder, in the passenger seat, riding on the roof with the dog, wherever...

So schmaltzy, compared to the Rockabilly.

I say "Confine Christianity to Sundays. Most everybody's a weekender anyhow."

Unless you're a practicing Christian.

The term "practicing Catholic" was used extensively in sermons, catechism, and CCD classes to differentiate between fallen-away and lax Catholics and the Sodalizers, the Knights, and the Altar Societies and the Mothers' Clubs. There was plenty to do and we got lots of practice.

I'm way out of practice now for a lot of things, more than I care to think on.

Kinda reminds me of the time James Brown and I went up on Greeley Hill. Unfortunately, Papa went on to a brand new bag, but we had fun, fun, fun until Big Daddy Roth arrived.



Rats!



That outtake from Eat the Document sat around for how many years before Pennebaker turned it loose?

Run and get a bucket, get the baby some byrds.

Nobody's goin' anywhere they haven't already been, I guess.

It has come to my attention (and the Rev never lies) that my best friend never told me he was related to the Joe Herb! Jeff Mathis' mom, Betty, is the niece of Joe Herb's wife, Grandpa Freeman's sister.

So Joe Herb is the Rev's great-uncle. This is not earth-shaking in a small town. It is rather to be expected. Jeff's family tradition involves autos, while the Herb tradition is in motorcycles and bicycles.

And this Big Daddy Roth of whom zBrown speaks is pretty much not the Roth of Ages here in the central valley. Our Rother, who art now in heaven, began in Fresno selling autos of another brand than Chevrolet, I believe, then switched up and opened the Merced showroom. John, not Big Biddy. Diddy. Daddy.

Throwpie is such a sleepy Bo-Jo. What did you think my intentions were? I admit to nefaricity, lying in wait, hoping to get the band back together.

That YOU might remain sedentary and earthbound like the Rev (he must weigh
in at 13 stones) and that we might never go a-yodeling again causes me worry,
if not grief.

Dust off that helmet and send Cosmic some vibes; there is immense power in tie-dye.

We'll go to the Grotto and brother Tim can put us up/put up with us for a day or two in Jamestown. Let's go!

"We'll all gather in the Grotto,
The beautiful, beautiful Grotto..."

I may go check out these rocks today. It's blessed hot here so I better do it alpine-start, which means getting on the road here soon. I'm gonna show ya these, Pie. You know Piney Creek on the way up to Coulterville on the Merced Falls Road/Hwy 132 rte?

I'm ready for some action up in granite land. It's been too long. Windsurfing kind of moved in on my climbing quite a few years ago just about the time when Kate was born. The landings were softer (sometimes) and nothing fell from the sky trying to kill me. I have to admit I was just scared, and felt I had gotten away with something for too long. My love is still there, I've made it to 62, so fook it. Call Mathis, put him on a diet and let's go! Sailing has kept me fit so I'll carry the beer.
I still have the helmet.

nice work on the rock mouse, sure glad I didn't fall


Did you feel like you were going ninety miles an hour?





OK - I've bit my tongue for as long as I can hold my breath (which BTW, is just about as long as Caruso), but I must point out that you are not sporting the official Da Brimģ headware.
