This week’s OHW is those crazy Kiwis with ‘Cruise Control’. An Adelaide OHW #4 (1994) from their brilliant album ‘Body Blow’
Al Stewart. This time just an Adelaide hit #9 (1976) recorded at Abbey Road under the great Alan Parsons. Brilliant album (same name) do yerself a favor
Really liked this one
Watching an inspiring program today on CNN with Anderson Cooper and historians Ken Burns and Doris Kearns Goodwin. Ken used this quote from Shakespeare’s Richard II
“Should I do so, I should belie my thoughts:
Comfort’s in heaven; and we are on the earth,
Where nothing lives but crosses, cares and grief”
The OHW of the week is John Sebastian (The Lovin’ Spoonful) with his theme to ‘Welcome Back Kotter’ (1976)
As a music loving teenager I loved Creedence Clearwater Revival. They had hit after hit and were deservingly huge but I was always searching the road less travelled and admired them from afar. Recently I have had a musical epiphany and now realise that they really are one of my very favorite bands. Their music is as fresh and vibrant 50 years on and will always be that way.
One of the unexpected delights of my new place is that right outside my bedroom window there is one of those golden street lights. This allows a gorgeous golden dappled light to flood the room. Recently the light went out and I reported it online to S.A. Power Networks using a nifty public lighting map. Last night after about 48 hours the ‘golden void’ was back so here is a Hawkwind song on the subject dedicated to our missing friend (and brother) Neil who loved it so much.
Just devastated to hear of the passing of the great Gerry Marsden. It is so sad that that beautiful voice has been silenced. A great entertainer and very funny guy, we will never forget you.
We would love to get some feedback so leave a comment.
What happened to the revolution? The band is actually called ‘Radical Posture’.
