Too much to do in this short life. Time enough for a cover of this song though.

Juke Box: Blue Sky

Partly cloudy sky, April 29, 2021.

It’s Friday with big load of work ahead.

In 1972, seven days after the Allman Brothers Band released their third studio album, Eat a Peach, they appeared at the University of Iowa Field House. We didn’t know what to expect since Duane Allman had been killed in a motorcycle accident Oct. 29, 1971. I worked a carbon arc spotlight for the show and it was a stunner. Eat a Peach was the last album on which Duane Allman played. This is a recording from it.

Hope you have a great Friday!

Juke Box – Gas Station Women

Here’s one by Phil Ochs.

“Fill ‘er up with love please won’t you mister? Just the Hi-Test is what I used to say. But that was before I lost my baby. I’ll have a dollar’s worth of regular today.”

Happy Friday!

Juke Box – Jubilee

Today’s forecast is to be sunny beginning late morning, clear, and with a high of 52 degrees. I’m prepping to get outside and don’t have a lot of availability for screen time and related reading and writing before the sun comes up at 6:43 a.m. in an hour or so. I’m leaving this here.

Have a better Saturday than expected in a time of the coronavirus pandemic.

Juke Box – Crossroads

Cream: Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. This group came together and dissolved while I was in high school, before I knew it. Few bands were as good as this one was.

Taking a couple days to work on other projects, in the meanwhile…

Juke Box – Hummingbyrd

I’m off organizing for a while. In the meanwhile, enjoy this video of Marty Stuart playing Clarence White’s Fender Telecaster. White is known for creating a distinct sound as a member of the Byrds. Stuart bought the Telecaster from White’s widow. If you want to learn more, here’s Stuart’s story about how the guitar came to be his.

I won’t be long.
