          • Geez, Primalkatt, what an eruption of good stuff. I'm wanting to type a lot but have time for only a little. Very moving all. I, IMO, think that SRV is distilling the lyrics down to and within his Instrumental rendition of Little Wing. I think it's the best cover, at least, w/o lyrics, but Derek and the Dominos ain't bad. Somehow or other, Hendrix, with his Strat, and soulful lone voice, will never be surpassed. Loved his batterie, too.

                    I love clapton and that's a great rendition indeed! And yes, die hard fans love and will defend Hendrix's original version to the nines of which I agree, it's amazing. I used to love both of the Winter boys! Have seen them several times too.

                    Here's a blast from the past and god knows I loved these boys!



                    This will give away my age but what the hell. I kept a journal and this is who I've seen live back in the day and I certainly can't list them all (will hit some of the biggies) as that's all we did back then in the Bay Area, concerts, concerts and more concerts, Filmore, Winterland, Kezar Stadium, Days on the Green, Stanford, Oakland Coliseum.... et all!!!

                    Today, I'm more into 90's alternative and need to see Alter Bridge although, I'm very very grateful that I was in an era and lived in a place where these giants/trail-blazers in the industry graced us with their talent.

                    Blood Sweat and Tears - first concert with my parents and boy I was a young-un!
                    Chicago - second concert with my parents, from then on I was hooked.

                    Savoy Brown - didn't log where I saw them and the same with Crosby/Stills/Nash and Young, and Leon Russell. I'm guessing the Filmore.

                    Eric Clapton - Stanford Uni 1975 - I have a coveted drumstick from this concert. Such a groupie I was! I've seen him several times too.

                    Lee Michaels/Cold Blood - Winterland 1972

                    Led Zepeplin - San Fran/Kezar Stadium 1973 - stood up one time at this concert due to.... umm... errr... too much fun?

                    Crosby and Nash - Winterland 1972
                    Santana - Winterland 1972 - seen them so many times can't even remember them all. I saw them with Buddy too... heavenly sigh.

                    • Nice list Primalkatt - I really like most of those listed. Would have loved to have seen John Mayall that early in his career. Didn't see him until a few years later. Saw the Stones, Tull, Santana, Billy Cobham, Leon Russell, Blue Oyster Cult, Dead, Jerry Garcia Band, etc. etc. Also a load of jazz as well, mostly in NYC - Village Vanguard was such an amazing place to see the giants of jazz. Thad Jones/Mel Lewis was awesome in that tiny basement. Also went to many Newport Jazz festivals in NYC as well. Rahsaan Roland Kirk at Avery Fisher Hall playing 3 wind instruments at one time - amazing.

                        Haha! Those were the days no? It looks like you've seen your share too and yes Mayall was amazing. One of my favorite was Tull, watching him dance around the stage in those tights, to be honest and I hate this word, it was surreal.

                        I'm going to see Bob Seger in March in Sacto, and the crazy thing is, my parents are going too. lol They are cool peeps!

                        • I've been listening to Royal Blood. Don't know much about them, but apparently the Brits are giving these guys the keys to, like, Rock or something. I haven't really read or heard anything about them other than a few lines of Dave Grohl and Jimmy Page loving them I guess.

                          Pretty damn good music for 2 guys! I've never seen a band with just a bass guitar. Wild.

                          • I pursue Your laws, on the one hand
                            On the other, my passion pursues me.
                            Ashamed and embarrassed, I will enter Your gates.
                            And the long nights and the loneliness and the years,
                            And this heart that has not known peace.
                            Until the sea becomes quiet, until the shadows disappear.
                            אני רודף אחר חוקיך, מחד
                            מאידך תשוקתי אותי רודפת
                            בוש ונכלם אבוא בשעריך
                            והלילות הארוכים והבדידות ושנים
                            והלב הזה שלא ידע מרגוע
                            עד שישקוט הים, עד שינוסו הצללים
                            Where shall I go, to where will I turn, when Your eyes gaze upon me?
                            Where shall I flee, how will I not turn away?
                            Between truth and truth,
                            Between law and practice.
                            Between the days of yore and modern times.
                            Between the hidden and the revealed,
                            Between the world to come and this world.
                            לאן אלך, אנה אפנה, כשעיניך מביטות בי
                            איכה אברח, איך לא אפנה
                            בין אמת לאמת
                            בין הלכה למעשה
                            בין הימים ההם לזמן הזה
                            בין הנסתר לנגלה
                            בין העולם הבא לעולם הזה
                            I pursue Your laws, on the other hand my passion burns me
                            Fierce as death, terrible as troops with banners
                            The long nights and the loneliness and the years,
                            And this heart that has not known peace.
                            Until the sea becomes quiet, until the shadows disappear
                            Bring me back!
                            רודף אחר חוקיך, מאידך תשוקתי אותי שורפת
                            עזה כמוות, איומה כנדגלות
                            הלילות הארוכים והבדידות והשנים
                            והלב הזה שלא ידע מרגוע
                            עד שישקוט הים, עד שינוסו הצללים
                            השיבני
                            Where shall I go, to where will I turn
                            ...
                            לאן אלך, אנה אפנה

                            This moves me. This song is used in a popular TV series. More info if any interest: http://shvamerachef.blogspot.com/200...do-i-turn.html

                            I experience personal expansion when listening to music from different places. I try to look up the translation of the text but the emotional experience of the song/music is, of course, the initial hook, as well as the sound or texture of the spoken language along with the voice. It is like gaining (a) perspective I never wd.'ve had o-wise, and it is satisfying.
