Patti Smith covering George Harrison's Within You Without You. It's a departure from the original in that the underlying rhythm is quite different; but Patti gives a very nice reading.

Thanks for sharing that Patti Smith; I've of course known of her forever but never heard( I think I even have a cd I've never listened to...I have thousands so so things get buried before I can hear them...) I think I have to dig that cd out and such...it sorta sucks having musical tastes going from King Sunny Ade to Pig Destroyer because there's always a ton of stuff you're gonna miss no matter how much music you buy and check out...oh well, just gotta think of us all as music barnacles, trying to catch as much with our flagellum as we can...Tony

Regardless of what you might think of Patti Smith's music, it's well worth reading her book, Just Kids, her account of her life with Robert Mapplethorpe in the late 60s and early 70s in NYC. She's a great writer and her tales are very compelling. It's an amazing window into a time and place that was really the transition between post-WWII NY and the modern city.


I did get to see her open for the Grateful Dead once. That was a lot of fun.

I saw her at CBGB's in New York MANY years ago, when she first hit big. I don't remember too much about the music. Rather, I remember her humping the mic stand and her bass player wrapping aluminum foil around his head and trying (unsuccessfully) to climb up a column supporting the roof. I was not impressed.

Our buddy FC should *totally* be sitting in on ^that one^ Dave! =)

There's a couple good rock cover bluegrass acts out there... my current favorite right now is Love Canon. (child of the 80's that I am!)

Here they are covering Grateful Dead's "Touch of Grey":

Enjoyed Purson Wolf. I'm drawn to that relaxingly under-produced sound.

Conversely, I'm listening to the (mildy over-produced) soundtrack to the movie "Twister" from 1996. (NO WAY that was twenty years ago!)

Specifically, Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks' theme music "Twisted". Stevie claims at least to have written the lyrics long before, that they just happened to loosely coincide with the movie plot. This must have been recorded right before the concert and subsequent reunion tour for "The Dance".

Anyway, I sat up half the night with a very good friend watching it on DVD this weekend, so it must've stuck in my head. The words have taken on a different meaning for me, in the wake of another good friend's recent passing.

Gregory ,
I am glad that you liked the "Purson" link. The Bass player Justin Smith is also an interesting player in that it seems that he has been influenced by some of the same Bass players that I was decades ago myself. He also has a GUILD STARFIRE in his stable of instruments and seems to be endorsed by "GUILD " by the look of this link.

http://guildguitars.com/artist-to-watch-justin-smith-of-purson/?sa=X&ved=0CCAQ9QEwA2oVChMIjM7Luu_7xgIVzJqACh3zLw-p

I am very hopeful that soon he will be playing an ALEMBIC Bass on stage ! Perhaps it is just a matter of time. If someone handed him a swell Alembic bass to checkout and play sometime I can't see why that could not happen.

I checked out the words to " Twisted" in your link , I can relate as well , I have been there a few times as well .
Emotional recovery from such loss is not easy. Hang in there brother we are there with you .

I highly recommend this, along those lines. I love Verdine scaring the woman in the front row while her friend is clearly loving it.

This is before the Philip Bailey pop version (not that that version is terrible, far from it).

I'm vacationing at the world's oldest and largest Fiddler's Convention in Galax, Virginia all next week... http://oldfiddlersconvention.com/

I'll have to see if some of my younger, (far more tech-savvy) fellow musicians can post some of what we're up to down there. This will be my 28th consecutive year as a contestant, and my 30th in attendance.

Unfortunately, (thanks to the actions of some rude, obnoxious folks a few years ago) they don't allow any electrically amplified instruments in the campground, so the Alembic stays home. =(

But hey, the ol' upright needs some love too. =)

At some point back in the 70's or thereabouts (I no longer remember when), I went to this one. I can remember that there were lots of people there, lots of musicians, and that I had a good time.

[update] Found this on wikipedia:

"The Union Grove Old Time Fiddlers' Convention originally founded in 1924 by H. P. VanHoy and friends, as a fund raiser for the school. Held annually on the school grounds every Easter weekend, the Fiddlers' Convention was a popular community event that brought many area old-time fiddlers into the small unincorporated town of Union Grove to compete. With the folk music revival in the 1950s and 1960s, however, this small-town community event became increasingly popular with young people who would travel great distances to attend. The unconventional lifestyles of some of these young people disturbed many residents of the conservative farming community. The "Woodstock generation" generated huge crowds to Union Grove, thus overwhelming the community's resources."

I guess I was one of those woodstock generation that overwhelmed the place.

I know about Union Grove Dave, but never went to that one. My Dad want to take (6-year-old) me to this one- http://www.stompin76.com/ but my Mom wouldn't let him! That festival was probably the turning point in the generational gap between the originators and your age bracket. How the time foes fly... a few years later, I was *playing* at the reunion Stompin'99. What a week! It was the strangest meld of 3 generations of Deadheads and the top tier of the Bluegrass & Oldtyme world all in one 40-acre field. All the musicians were put in cabins together, a tragic error on the promoters part, since very shortly after that got spread around, there were as many people in the musicians village as there were at the main stage.

I could go on about that for a while, but in the spirit of the LISTENING THREAD, I've been killing time this morning listening to James Taylor. I caught his show in Greensboro last night. (and got to meet-n-hang for a while with fellow Alembican JimmyJ... awesomely nice guy)

It was pretty special to hear JT do this one when *actually in* Carolina. http://youtu.be/1S-d_IITWk4

For practice time, I've been playing along with Vince Gill's 1996 "High Lonesome Sound" album this morning. It came out during my time in Nashville, and it makes me remember the good times there. Anyway, the bass playing on it always makes me think of Jimmy Johnson. (no wonder - Leland Sklar played bass on 90% of the album, the other 10% was Barry Bales of Alison Krauss & Union Station if you're wondering... also a monster bassist) 

This tune jumped out at me today... I always thought "Jenny Dreamed of Trains" was a John Denver tune, but no, it's Vinnie and Guy Clark.

18 years ago today, Fleetwood-Mac releases "The Dance", a live concert featuring the full Rumours era lineup of Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham. The album featured two brand new tunes:

"Sweet Girl" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWNZmMhBwhs

and "Bleed to Love Her" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5BZzkWXcwc

John's bass lines on these two songs is just as fascinating to me today as they were the first time I heard them.

'the failed convict' by Cable; they've sadly broken up, but made their masterpiece before they did; seriously, not a note out of place...if I ever create an album half as good I will be happy; the narrative thread is that good...

Alison Krauss - "Simple Love" from 2007's release of "A Hundred Miles Or More" collection.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At06d1sBlaE

Alison has a gift for picking songs that work for her, and this one is a gem... can't figure how it garnered so little attention. I've been thinking about my buddy Tony a lot lately... this tune has taken on new meaning since he's been gone.

Incidentally, the bassist on this live take is Abe Laboriel... I love how he just pedals that same little groove all the way through.
