Golden Earring doing an extended cover version (19 min.) of the Byrds hit "8 Miles

They had a hit in the Netherlands when I was hanging around over there called Radar Love in @ 1974. Great group to put down some biers and play foosball too.

So Rosie Hamlin was attending Mission Bay High School (were The Originals home schooled?), the song was recorded in San Marcos and released in 1960. Yet if you ask around many folks will tell you she was from National City (just like Raquel Welch).

Anyway Victoria Matthews does a real bang up job. Stage presence? com'n, she only twelve and props to the sax player.

Just don't tell me the Wolfman recorded his shows in La Jolla.

Golden Earring is great.

You'd think I already put this up and you'd probably be right.

david lindley & harry manx: soul of a man:

i much appreciate a program http://www.prx.org/americanroutes that plays on our npr station put together by nick spitzer, a professor at tulane university in new orleans.

last week i was so struck by the carter brother's version of the ^^^ song above that i went to the prx website which distributes the "american routes" program.

sure enough the archives contain the episode: http://www.prx.org/pieces/100464-13-33-how-to-improvise-8-14-2013 free for the streaming.

segment c contains the song in question, about 11:37 minutes in,
right after this gem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBbJclTJJI0

followed by: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MAMu3LHIYA

definitely worth outchecking, great listening

bro hooblie, I listen to American Roots, just about every Saturday night, great show. WTUL was a music source staple, BITD when I was a student next door. At that time the station was a very low wattage station. To it's discredit, Jerry Springer once was a dj/host there.

Mountain Jam is based on Donovan's song, There Is A Mountain, the opening riffs are the same.

zbrown, if we ever road trip, I want you to do the music compilation for it. That's good stuff. I'd never heard the Gypsy Rider song before.

"Stage presence? com'n, she only twelve and props to the sax player."
She's only 12? Wow, I'd have bet serious scratch 5 or more years more older. Hitting the notes and sax is on it too. Too bad the audience doesn't sit down and STFU.

That Dave Matthews rendition of Jimi Hendrix's masterpiece is an abortion. Sorry.

Well maybe, but mama don't allow me to stay out all night long!

"Actually she was 12, this was shot in August a month before she turned 13. It was at the California Dry Bean Festival in Tracy." As i recall, Rosie Hamlin was 14 when they released her first version.

Money by Pink Floyd, 'cause I need money for the move to the Sunny Southeast, Wexford. Not much rock, like I have here in Dalkey, but the beach (one of the finest in Ireland) is two minutes walk away, three if I am carrying the kayak.

Hate to hear that about Linda, a voice to savor on her recorded past.

Dizzy Reese ≈ I'll Close My Eyes

Grant Green ≈ Ain't It Funky Now

concerning mountains, i'm limited to the Piedmont Region of the Appalachians in a physical sense.

musically i add these to zb's theme:

Neil Young ≈ Sugar Mountain

Townes van Zandt ≈ Snowin' on Raton

Marshall Tucker Band ≈ Fire On The Mountain

michael from mountains

mountains of the moon


fire on the mountain (dead)

"...down in the streets today...folk down there really don't care...which way the pressure lies...so I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains..."

bonus track, to cleanse the palette : mountain top (leftover salmon)
