"Sonntag 21 Nov 22. FIVE solid hours of musik von der Plough
and Stars; where DO I begin? It was truly a 70-plus Rat
reunion of sort, those "Alta kaka Rockas' I haven't sat shiva's
headband for YET! First half was the usual Mess Around;
Justine's Black Threads did a country version of "Chains"
"by the Cookies"; that's my niece! (original artists!)
Justine on bass and Tom Baker as Keef as Mach
Bell did 'around and around" (Thundetrain with Afrika
Korps 21 aug 77 cantones!) and "not fade away" proving
he did INDEED buy the first two Stones albums, doing lead-off tracks
on each! Folks bought BOTH Mach Bell books (and
YOU can buy 'em here!!); like that alien and THOROUGHLY enjoyed
the Biggie Ratt chapter! I know Jay Allen
sang "Jolene" and Robin lane
was excellent. The latter half was Asa Brebner's 68 IF party,
Mrs larry Newman bein' merch lady as copies of Asa volume
one sold. Jesus may-a got pissed off and turnt over the
merch tables in the temple but besides the fact that "money
makes the world go 'round", "life is a cabaret" GELDT
IST GUT und Free enterprise and true sailing is dead, I turnt not
one merch table over; otherwise you'd say "Jesus Christ Highland!"
(had a cuzzin drank sherry, thought he were jesus; found this out
at grandma's outhouse about '65; think he's bin committed since...)...I
saw members of Big World/ The Vouts/The Vandals and even a GG Allin
model! Who performed? Larry Newman was Captain
manyhands on every song and we hope captain Easychord took photos!
Limbo Race (he means Randy Black -
ed), Chillun of Paradise (he means Linda Viens-ed),
Robin Lane closed the show...oh yeah, my bit: I
sang Asa's "I'm in love" with Gee Julie,
Larry on guitar, John Keegan on
sax, MacGregor "My race is royal" McGehee
on bass and Tim Jackson of Chartbusters on some
kinda wooden beat box; TRULY the band Time SHOULD forget! Archbishop
Enema Fetish, Ross Phasor...Billy Connors of Boize had
a Ad Hoch (versus Ad Boc or Ad Frank) band with even MJ
Quirk out of retirement on guitar AND John Keegan
on sax...ok memory fading..best part: Ken and Gee Julie got to Allston
to Spike's Junkyard Dawgs! It wasn't Nathan's; musta been from a

"Montagg 22 Nov 21. https://secondhandsongs.com.artist
and that artist is Italian singer Patty Pravo!
(slow newz day...)...there was a 1967 45 of "Se perdo te"
also on a 1968 album title Patty parvo. "Se perdo le' translates
into "The Time has Come" by PP Arnold on Immediate (June
1967), there's a youtube of that splendid Immediate British label
45 on a TURNTABLE. Whilst lissening to Bats in the belfry WMBR 88.1
FM last night, I googled all the important info...Discogs says "The
Time has Come" is "soul", so patty Pravo sings "soul'
song in Italian; Ti Amo! This 45 for PP Arnold wasn't as big a hit
as her next 45, singing cat Stevens "first cut is the deepest"
(1967) and after all THOSE Hopelessly Obscure record COLLEACTOR
facts I DO need a bromo, geets Romo! (or wuz it coz I "called
any vejtable last night"? Ted Templeman? From Ted Templeman
to producing Van Highland!"......

"day of Wodin 24 Nov 21. Turner classic movies 0500-0600. The
Split. October 1968; maybe I bought Beatles revolver
then, two years late. I don't remember it playing the Strand Thee-ate-er,
Brockport NY but at age 12,I couldn't get into an R-rated movie
tl age 13 (big for my age and that WAS the topless scene in Alice's
restaurant). it's a football player Jim Brown "crime' film
and his co-horts are McHale and Oscar Madison among others (trailer

the Quincy Jones soundtrack ON
YOUTUBE is excellent! there's a Capitol records 45 by Lou rawls
"The Split"; "It's just a game, Love" versions
by Arthur Prysock/Clydie King and Billy Preston (I didn't hear "don't

"Freitag 26 Nov 21. 0746 The Scene with Bevis Frond
WMBT 88.1 fm. they played " the doors of perception"
by dave Pike; fuzz bass and echoes sax; kinda like Kenne Highland's
Air Force playing the Newburyport Brewing Company on Boxing Day!

page! 'live album by American (first!) jazz vibraphonist Dave
Pike recorded 28 Sept 66 (Dad was on way to "Nam never to
return) at the Village gate, New Netherlands and produced by herbie
mann. (no kin to Aimmee). "this is the Pike version of an
acid experiment "; so true from cut I heard on ole WTBS!
Some stellar 'jazz cats blowin'" (Kerouac on steroids!) but
let's dig that fuzz bass: Chuck Israels! Wikipedia discography:
sideman with Cecil Taylor, Eric Dolphy, even Judy Collins! (The
Judy Collins Concert (1964) and Fifth album (1965); "both
sides now" released October 1968 on Elektra whom were also
recording MC5's "kick out the jams" 31 Oct 68 Grande
Ballroom Detroit, a mile from where my father had lived ("but
Kenne you've always had that Detroit thing"; A Resolved White
