Pinetop Perkins and Kenny Wayne Shepherd backed by The Muddy Waters Band — Got My Mojo Workin’.
What’s on your mind?
hey kelly — how’s denver tonight?
hey starbuck — headed up to hood?
Geez, it took me a long time to read the last post — my bad for waiting until after Colbert.
yeah we had a hiccup and i got logged out too. easily fixed by signing back in
Didn’t make it as the weather on Wednesday was socked in. Will keep an eye out.
It was really cold today, but this evening the temp is up at least 10 degrees since dinner time.
How’s the beach?
SNOWZ! I got about a foot and a half, and it’s finally stopping. YOWZ!
Getting to work tomorrow (we closed today) should be a hoot!
Oh, nuthin’. *g*
I’ve had to sign in several times this last week, including right now. I thought is was me.
been chilly but the rain today warmed me up into the high 50′s at the moment
It’s in the 50s here. I say this and then we’ll have a blizzard, but I see dandelions blooming on my front lawn. Usually it’s heavy jacket weather here on trick-or-treat night, and tonight was the neighborhood designated night.
So wonderful to have you here. Where are you? I’m in Cleveland!
Where you at, Kelly?
hey margot — dang…. weather is forked up if ya got dandelions blooming now… egad
kelly is the former kellyc in denver
I is in Denvah! You know, where all that Column Temple shit Convention was, and when we Coronated elected King Hussein The President.
Yeah, weird, it was so balmy last year, but so shitty this year.
Margot – thanks for the tune – loved it – thank you. Rumor is – and (damn it) I can’t verify -that Mick and the boys stopped down at The Slippery Noodle (here in Indy – killer blues bar) to play few sets after their big concert at Conseco.
I figure that that’s what separates the musicians from the pretty boys – get it down in the dirt and still feel right at home.
Thanks for that. I appreciate you helping me from one thread to another, since you don’t really have to. And after a couple more, it won’t be necessary, but I really do appreciate you help with that Suz.
I’m prolly gonna have to go back to the last thread to see if my number of modded comments has grown by even more today.
Is there a Guinness-Book record on this kinda thing?
Denver has snow? Downtown?
I have a cousin in Ft Collins and friends in Loveland.
And it’s nice to meet you more formally, Mr. Canfield.
my former neighbor in boulder creek is a musician and he said the best way to come down after a show is by playing music
don’t know if it worked but it sure created some fine tunes coming outta his place in the wee hours after he had done a show. guess that is why there are informal afterparties
OK, I’m curious and have to go look. Hope you don’t mind…
It’s the law. After Labor Day, there must be snow – otherwise, they haul in the snow-making machines off the mountains.
We have, at least at my house, about 18 inches from yesterday to today! It’s wild – so early. This is December/January weather.
@jayt – likewise!
my pleasure dood
you didn’t even come close dood
starbuck — it was 44 at 4:30 this afternoon and it is currently 59 outside.
Glad you liked it!
You should see the other ones they did that night, at that same bar. YouTube is mah fren.
I have a total soft spot for Suz, I will admit.
Suz and Eureka Springs I automatically love for the social forums and geniality they provide here at the Lake. They’re so different, but so together on the hosting of this wildly divergent community.
A TOAST! To the LLN Makers Of The Night! [glass clink!]
Some more Kenny Wayne Shepherd (it’s not my fault; some irresistible female got me steered this way, and there wasn’t a godddamned thing I could do about it….
dood *fanning face* another of my desert isle songs
can I try for a third?
i’m game if you are *catching breath* lets party dood
Ya know what’s on my mind? Steely Dan is here in town tonight. I thought about buying advance tickets Monday, but decided no, because of the forecast.
Well, in retrospect, that was dumb. Because yes, the weather was stupid, and it would have been difficult, but the point is, I MISSED ANOTHER DAMN CONCERT!
You would think I’d live and learn….
fork. was it an indoor concert?
am i that easy?
Having grown up in Englewood when it was Little Housing Development On The Prairie [ we used to find arrowheads riding our bikes down Arapahoe Road when it was a 2 lane....fuck I'm old]…! It actually seems kind of cool that Mother Nature is striking now instead of waiting until Halloween Night. There was nothing worse than making the neatest costume and getting hit with the Halloween Storm.
O no, let’s go here right now:
Francine Reed! I have known her since ’76. I played substitute for her gigs at local Phoenix venues, The Point, etc, when Bob Ravenscroft or Prince Shell Or Jimmy Davis was unavailable up until ’86.
She ended up working with Lyle Lovett, along with my fav bass player I worked with in Phoenix, Matt McKenzie.
Here she is in “I’m a Handfull.”
Ask me about her brother Bucko Reed, and bailing his ass outta jail. Heh. The ’80s were wild.
nonono – anything but…
and if you’ll pardon me for a moment while I entertain myself:
I’ll be back in a few…
hey openhope. that ariel mermaid costume doesn’t look the same when it is layered over sweaters and sweatpants.
how ya been?
hey ppd — how’s the south south bay tonight?
*closing eyes and ignoring for 5minutes 31 seconds*
Yep! But ya gotta get there, or wanna gotta get there I guess is more accurate.
It’s really crappy out, this early.
I was about 12, and I had to take my five year old sister out for trick-or-treating. When we returned, her paper bag for treats was missing the bottom. No treats. Major heat from parents.
i hear ya — sometimes the negative of the trip to the show casts a pall on the entire evening.. and then ya get to repeat it in reverse at the end of the night…
yikes… that really forked up the evening for ya ce :(
her wild women don’t get the blues is my theme song kelly
Hey Chris. I’m curious too. Please report back :-)
shit — forgot to ask
*asking kelly about the 80′s*
hey sunny — how ya doing?
Evening Suz and pups.
It’s been springlike here for a couple of days. 70s and balmy evenings. Had doors and windows open. Bliss!
Fuck shitty snow. Also.
Evenin LLN Pups Of Mayhem!
I was fortunate to see her do this twice in two years, the second time with her ex, Rodney Crowell and HIS band.
A fest I frequent, ya know.
Love that song.
Good Pick hoss! *G*
Good. I love that song, and Francine. She doesn’t get enough recognition. Neither does her sister, Margo.
This clip is relatively lately, but both the sisters together:
Totally reminiscent of how downtown Tempe used to be in the late ’70s/early ’80s
I will try to look tomorrow –lunch hour. Will report back Sunny…
for linda — i gotta go with tumblin dice
I got two more – then I’m taking my screwed-up back and hitting the rack: both of which, maybe, are from the Letterman show.
Unless I change mind….
anyway – Elvis Costello and Emmylou:
dood — how’s sac tonight?
Am I just getting old, or is it that you simply don’t see that special kind of stuff any more?
Geebuz, her Youtube list reads of every great R&B hit ever crafted!
She’s good! *G*
i didn’t know she had a sister
Don’t GET me started with Dolores O Riordan!!!
Forever Yellow Skies
When You’re Gone
I’m Still Remembering
Will You Remember
Don’t get me started with Delores.
She bad. I worship her.
And just to keep all this in the realm of reality, YES, I could play like Prince Shell and his buddy Eddie (I forget his last name, but this is the guy on this Telluride clip)
You have to remember in ’82, a guy could play/ a singer could sing jazz versions of pop and standards in a relative pop fashion.
Worked in those old resort hotel days.
Has anyone other than me ever heard of the Textones? (Carla Olsen and band). I used to go see them and it was like every musician in L.A. who wasn’t working that night would be there – nothing on the YouTube, however.
Same with Chuck E. Weiss and the Goddamn Liars. Incredibly hot – played at the Underground on Sunset (?). Smokin’ hot band.
And since Soupy Sales just passed the other day, it reminded me of seeing his son Hunt Sales’ band a few times. They were pretty fuckin’ good too.
What, you don’t recall them? It’s the 60′s ‘sposed to be like that, gal.
Um, nuttin. ;-)
i’ve heard of (and heard) chuck e weiss (on the radio) but not the first — sorry dood
grrrrrrr go read the comment i was responding too about bailing out her brother dood *G*
I never even heard her do that! That’s great. HOw did i miss that…
Changed my mind. Concrete Blonde (well – actually Johnette and her guitar player) doing Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows”
(give it a coupla minutes before she attacks).
It’s a fest thang, and yes, you don’t see that shit much anymore, also.
Not even at fests.
The two I frequent, one is twice a year, the other once a year.
They BOTH in the earlier days up thru the mid 90′s would have on Sunday nights or closing sets, have others come out on stage and join in large jams.
Sadly, I didn’t start festing either one till Fall ’01.
But I’ve got LOTS of tunage from the 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s I’ve downloaded that DOES do that. And it kills me, and it kills me when my campmates always tell me, Larue, ya shoulda seen it when Richard Thompson, Steve Earle, Tim O’Brien and Jerry Douglas and Mark O’Connor and Sam Bush and Bela Fleck . . . bastids, I tell ‘em.
And yes, that show I described DID happen, once.
holy moly larue
Top Jimmy and the Rhythm Pigs, and Hollywood Fats too.
OMG! I love Bela Fleck! He’s so weird and so my fav style!
So, Suz, your pick tonite is off da hook!
But I’m a bit annoyed with the cat who loaded it up on Youtube, as details are missing.
1) When was this show?
2) Who are the members of Muddy’s band?
3) Who’s playin harp?
4) Is Kenny Wayne the blonde dude?
It’s a great clip, and I’ll not post what I think is the definitive version of Mojo, by Butterfield Blues Band.
I’m sure everyone’s heard it and seen it.
And THAT rhythm section was stolen from Howlin Wolf-Jerome Arnald bass, Sammy Lay, stix.
Love your pick for tonight! It’s well done, and Pinetop don’t look no 89 years old, so it MUSTA been at least 20 years ago, ya think?
hey db — how’s your hunk of canada tonight?
thanks larue — its from the KWS dvd listed on the utube page…. pinetop is 96 now iirc
if ya click on the name of the song in the post it takes ya to the utube page
Phreakin tell me about it, story goes they played till 3am, LONG past the midnight cutoff.
Last song, Thompson sang solo.
Crowd sang the chorous over and over with him. He finally leaves stage, crowd continues to sing, for another 45 minutes, he comes back out, finishes, crowd goes on for another 15 minutes.
This was a fall fest at Strawberry Music Fest.
Come spring fest, following year, as Dallas Dobro opens it up on Thursday at 5 pm for the first set, crowd breaks out into the same chorous, and do it for half an hour as the first band comes on and joins them. Ya can’t beat the crowd.
Greatest story of a fest I’ve ever heard, and I got more n my campmates to say, yeah, that happened. It’s a fest legend.
See what yer missin, sleepin on the ground at fests, Suz????? *G*
see i don’t do that sleeping on the ground thing anymore and the only camping i do would have to involve room service.
On my mind tonight. We just saw the movie The Yes Men Fix The World. Go see it!!
Cold and anxiously awaiting the end of Daylight Savings time, S.
He’s off the hook at times, with his Planet Earth, and his FleckTones and more.
Another cat you likely like is Chris Thile, who was with Nickel Creek, and is now with a group that does his classical music he’s written that lasts half an hour each passage. All with acoustic instruments. Bluegrass instruments. A group that has five of some of the best session folks in Nashville or anywhere. Major players in the grass and country.
And WPA, go google that up, you’ll flip at what THEY do.
There’s SO much that’s out there . . . insane. *G*
that good? hmmm
96? He came thru Sac Region I think, at a fest in Grass Valley, just last year!
you don’t like DST?
Oh yeah, I know that, but the youtube posted page don’t tell the questions I have . . *G*
here’s the amazon to the dvd
Thank you !! And I figure my neighbors thank you too, since they’re probably awake now. heh.
Phil Alvin was so camp, but so on the mark. He also has a coupla weird doctorates – can’t remember the fields now, off the top of my head.
Huh, tall tents.
Doubled up Queen Air Mattresses.
Pillows From Home.
Food Service Provided By Larue’s Cafe.
Festing Fit For A Queen, such as yerself.
Try it, you’ll LIIIIIIIKKKKKE it. *G*
I wanna see “The Men Who Stared at Goats”. Supposedly it is mostly true.
On the trailer, George Clooney looks out the windshield of a car and says he’s just bustin’ up clouds for practice.
My mother swears that she *used* to be able to do that.
So ya, ya – sounds stupid – but she cured my little sister’s epilepsy.
I don’t fuck with her very much.
comes with free wifi?
Funny, Mojo ain’t on it.
And I don’t recognize any of Muddy’s sidemen either.
But that’s a hell of a list of pickers.
Wonder if Gatemouth was the harp player we saw on Mojo?
I wouldn’t know to recognize him. Any pups?
that new one pirate radio looks like it may be good…. of course it could totally suck and they are broadcasting disco or something…
Well, chillens, I got up at 4:30 and it’s now heading towards 2:30. That’s pretty much a full day.
Lemme find some kind of something for the road here, musically.
Gimme a minute.
i figure it is on the dvd and not the cd’s. i tried to figure out who the harp player was but was unable to.
dayam.. try this one dood
Chris I knew about, but WPA?
All I’m finding is this interview with HP Lovecraft
Not that there’s anything wrong with that; after all, don’t blame me, I voted for Cthulu!
DB, you are a true konnissieurrrrrr of the craft.
I’ve not heard of either of them!
Best to ya hoss, never mind the daylight or the cold!
Test driving Cricket wireless broadband here. Weak reception, but better than dial-up.
Enjoyed seeing Rachel, Jane and Glenzilla chomping on the lieberfucker.
Will no one rid us of this turbulent priest shit?
No cells, no internet, just pure good lovin 5,000 DFH’s, the vendors, camp jams, and stage music and the pines and weather of the Sierra Nevada in spring and fall at 4,500FT or so. *G*
Ya gotta disconnect, ya know.
woohoo… can ya watch utubes?
Wow JayT, yeah, she’s yer mom!!!
Honor and cherish!
And, I guess, fear a bit, huh . . . lolol
Great story, thanks for sharing!
If someone didn’t already find a clip, here’s Gatemouth
*shivering with thoughts of going cold turkey*
I am dead totally fucking serious.
My little sister hasn’t taken any kind of prescription anything for at least the last 20 years.
Both of them:
1) Scare me, and
2) make me feel like a putz
guy I know used to play with Muddy-Brian Bisesi=last I heard he was producing somewhere in the Bayou.
just saw an ad for men who stare at goats
tag line at the end of the ad: no goats no glory
hey emerson — how’s the east bay tonight?
Thass got a kewt quotient above a bizzialion.
Dang, that was kewl! *G*
ok – so I gotta go, and my research skills are waning as well. So I’ll leave with this one on the board:
Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jeff Healey – Look at Little Sister:
Just google music band WPA.
As to HP Lovecraft, I loved the band from Denver!!!
Google that, if you’ve not heard them!
Let me go out on a limb here.
I’m the Regional Customer Experience Manager for Cricket Wireless, West. It doesn’t matter where you live, let me know how your experience is. I’ll give my personal email here rather than my work one, and it’s XXX at yahoo dot com.
Sweet! Thanks Margot!
That old mix of rock and jazz thang goin on, with a touch of Jean Luc and Papa John Creech fiddle!
Recall and old 60′s band called Blues Project, and Flute Thing?
Suz, there’s 5,000 DFH’s and music and food!!! I don’t think you’ll be lost for stimulation!!!!
Sides, you got GREAT stories to tell late at night!!!
Suz, all you gotta do is hang with somebody that has a motor home. Camping with conveniences. *s*
no running water? no room service? oh yeah, there are stories. like how every time i have ever gone camping something has happened… like the tent collapsing in the middle of the night and getting smacked in the head with the tent pole (happened more than just two or three times) …or the time camping on the beach and the tide came in…. oh yeah there are stories *g*
Cool beans. Got your address, perhaps it can be deleted.
Wow, I only know him from LONG ago, doing blues!!!
Had NO idea he had teh zhazzzzz in him like this!
Learn something new every day here at LLN, with the Crazy Pups!
There IS that, but it’s sissy . . . *G*
refresh and addy zapped
hey larue — are there motor homes???
thanks emerson :)
I can indeed. It’s a whole new universe!
Running water, faucets only steps away.
Porta potties everywhere.
Full bathroom and showers only a hundred yards away.
Come ON, gal, you’ve seen worse in the streets of our worst cities!!!!
Amazing isn’t he? Could play any genre of music if he put his mind to it. Hot stuff, Larue!
No I don’t…I missed out.
doesn’t mean i wanted to sleep on those mean streets
i’m telling ya larue — i’m a jinx when it comes to camping
SURE there are motor homes!
You gonna rent one and drive into Yosemite up 120 or 132?
Please, KISS, keep it simple!!
well.. maybe one of them small ones… i don’t do the flashlight midnight trek anymore hoss
Fer Dawg’s Sake, gal, WOMAN UP this ain’t camping, it’s FESTING!!!!
Sigh. You city kids.
Al Cooper was one of the founders.
Here’s The Studio Cut, From A Must Have Album.
i’m a jinx dood. if i try camping in the mts in fall it will snow. if i’m camping in the spring it will rain a biblical rain.
I used to think that, too. Getting soft, but the back feels a lot better in the morning. *g* Still do all the cooking, drinking, playing, and singing outside…and usually in that order.
Nah – ok with it. Out is out, no reason to take it back.
I’ll take a moment to gloat.
We registered 2 million voters in 2008. ACORN ain’t got nothing on us.
We’re dedicated to serve the underserved in wireless, that is the sub $50k in annual income, and minorities. We’re far from perfect, in fact, our billing system screws up, but it’s a legacy system from a long time ago, but we’re fixing our system and will make the new one long about April.
This year, we partnered with Rebuilding Together, a sort of Habitat for Humanity, if you will, but lesser known.
We’re pretty damn blue, and green in our corporate ways, to the extent you can be.
I’ll get off the soapbox now.
Suz, we all come with all weather gear. Fest, rain, snow, sleet or shine.
I’ts not a biggie to us.
I’m tellin ya, yer runnin out of objections . . .
And they is gettin er, weak, ya know . . . *G*
i’m with ya on the back emerson.
NOW you’re talking!! Nice choice.
whadya expect from a wussy girl (lmao)
you nag pretty good for a guy larue
Em, I’ve seen friends with RV’s at fests, and often envy them. *G*
But we make good with air mattresses, thick one’s, and double them up.
We take a full kitchen, tables for prep and bar, pop up canopy with walls, sometimes a propane bottle for a heater and walls for the canopy to pick in, tent, clothes, shoes and foul weather gear.
And a shovel to route rain water around our camp, and tent . . . *G*
Life is good at a fest! *G*
larue — after i get teeth then i can start saving up for stuff like a small rv to fest in. given my back and fake knee, i would sleep better and with less pain than in a tent. the damp ground always gets to those problems areas i have.
Wasn’t they something in their day.
Al Cooper, Steve Katz on git.
Fine, fine band.
I’ve heard this! I had no idea who it was by. Thanks Larue, adding it to my favorites.
Did you like Weather Report’s Birdland?
Yeah, n I ain’t done, either.
And yer no wuss.
Not now, not then.
Perfect fest material!
still gotta figure out how to have wifi at fest tho…
The tent is tall, taller than you!
The air mattresses are stacked up, and 12 inches or more off the ground!
Big as Queen Beds!!!!
With sleeping bags and blankies!
There IS no cold!
You walk into the tent standing up!
Yer out of ammo. Yer killin me.
You are a peach!
Heh, got two vinyl’s of it!
Jaco! Bless him.
I’ve done my share of that too, Mr. Larue. I can go either way with it, but now it’s tougher to rough it. My bro-in-law and sis have one cuz he likes to ski at Tahoe. Their kids liked .
it when they were little
Basically, we do what you do sans the shovel.
dood — the damp gets to me up here on the 2nd floor. art h ritus is not a good camping buddy.
Yer killin me.
DISCONNECT FOR 4 DAZE!!!
That’s the reason for it all.
Find new community at every step, bond, meet friends for life.
Then go back to the toobz fully energized.
just doing my part to help out the helping out of each other we do here in the dark
LMAO — your chain is so easily yanked :)
Larue, that one night we played 4-5 Koopers in many different incarnations. All excellent.
I’m about 5 years away from wantin to RV, and I’ll never afford it.
So, it’s a high end camping in style we will go, till our 70′s.
Or LONGER if we can!
Well, that I can’t argue with. But there’s meds.
And unless it’s Rheumatoid, the more you keep moving, the less it hurts.
We’ll keep ya moving!!!
Chain’s broke, can’t flush this toilet!
first teeth larue…. gotta get teeth before i can do anything.
Al, Fred Lipsius, Randy Brecker, and others in NY
that is sweet ear candy emerson.. onmystars
Yeah, Al went thru a few phases, didn’t he.
Keys with Dylan and Bloomfield on git.
Toured with same a bit.
All the stuff with Bloomfield from Super Session and The Adventures Of.
Know I’m missin some from long ago.
And then, he started producing people.
Well, thanks and that’s fine. But I really don’t mind being out about the who and what I do.
Lemme tell you one thing, I left Sprint, because of their shitty policies, including FISA. I left them, period.
I’m still happy to work in telco for folks who are totally people oriented, who don’t play nice with FISA, who make prosecutors show a subpoena, who serve the underserved, the un-represented.
Yes ma’am, roger that . . . *G*
We’ll be here, and so will the festin.
Fall, not so cold, plenty warm.
No arthur Itis to bug yas.
Good shit, hoss . . nice pick!
didn’t want your good deed to get picked up by a spam bot or worse kelly.
don’t even get me started on the bugs. i’m a skeeter magnet.
don’t know what happened to that edit but
i like this one too emerson
Very impressive. I consulted the googles and learned a bit, but nothing about the blue/green piece. Fell into an article about the under served native americans in New Mexico. What an eye opener… so few telephones even.
I really liked the folks in your office here. Pleasant, competent and well organized. I’ll drop you a note tomorrow.
I’m out. Nite all.
HAHAHA-didn’t think that came thru the first time.
Ya got me, Suz!
I can so relate, Suz.
I had/have an acid condition where my teeth deteriorate, beyond my control.
Ya need the money, #1, and then the doc #2, to keep the teeth in yer head. The cost is maddening for one, and keeping it all together is #3. The fact that dental health is primary to HEALTH seems to get overlooked. I just hate that.
i had full band braces when i was a kid and they damaged the enamel of my teeth.
dental care is part of health care. having bad teeth increases your risk for all sorta bad shit like heart attacks.
Well, I gotta ramble but I’m gonna leave you LLN Krazed Pups with some thoughts I had for Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, Boxer and some so called lib/prog orgs I signed up with in the past year or so.
I modified this to fit each target, but this generic one will give ya the drift.
Fuck our Congress and White House:
You call the watered down pieces of shit Reid and Pelosi have developed reform?
Had I donated a cent to ANYone for this, I’d demand my money back!!
All plans at this stage are giveaways to the big biz of ins and pharma and med, and do
NOTHING to promote competition and lower prices!
As of today, Pelosi’s bill and Reid’s bill have mandates for people who can’t afford to
pay, and only 150% of poverty level subsidy’s and do NOT let EVERYONE participate in a
government run health plan!!!
A pure giveaway to our corporate feudalist masters.
You people should be APOLOGIZING to me and the rest of the general public for having
failed so badly.
Take me off your emailing list and let me know if and when you people develop a real
progressive backbone, because right about now you are as spineless as Reid and Pelosi.
I’m serious, take me off of any lists you have, delete my info, I want nothing to do with
End Of Message
Oh, I’m declaring Independent on Monday, and I’ll not be voting for Dem’s any more.
That was in many of my messages to Dem’s, and Dem rep orgs.
I’m, MORE than willing to primary dems’, and if need, vote against them.
There’s no real difference between them and the rethugs.
Neither one is gonna help us break the back of corporate feudalism.
Time to deny them support and money.
See how they respond.
Nite Pups. Thanks for the chat, and I’ll see ya at the polls, or in the streets.
Either one is fine with me at this point. Or both!
I’ve not seen cheaper whine in a jug of Red Mountain.
i’m a magic mod
you aint seen nothing yet
Ah, another goodie. Nice pick.
And with that, I go all *poofy*.
Thanks for da chat, Suz . . *G*
I like that. I’m more of a
Bravo!! I think it will be the streets, eventually. G’nite.
I’m so SORRY! I have no manners; Hey and BYE LaRue! Smooch, ya big lug!
shit i can’t find a utube of tweeter and the monkey man by the traveling wilburys
about time for me to head out.
g’nite all and thanks for all the music and conversations tonight
There are dozens, but none by the Wilburys. *g*
Time to hit it. Thanks for the hospitality and the dazzling editing skills!
