Happy Thanksgiving From BARTLETT ON BASS And Jan

"Rockers In Recovery"'s photo
O.K.,...I found this  photo on FACEBOOK just now, from "Rockers In Recovery"'s photo. I thought it was right on. Have a great holiday season. BARTLETT and Jan


 by martin b2005 cc
I know, I've been offline again for a few days...BUT,  I really try hard to keep up with all the music news round here and over just 'bout the whole country too,  anyway...don't I?...Well, sure I do.
And, I  just gotta tell ya, this story is a music mystery,...that I found on THE ROLLING STONE today. It's about singer/keyboard great BILLY JOEL and HERE and MADISON SQUARE GARDEN...they got a big surprise for us all...and they're NOT telling....untill December 3rd,...that is   What?..Just what could it be? I wonder.
So, read the Rolling Stone post, link above and see if you agree with them or have yet another idea about what's going guess is, that Joel and Madison Square Garden will be joining forces...I mean ..well. that Billy Joel and Madison Square Garden will be jointly owned...I can't remember if that was on the Rolling Stone's list or not...See what you think.  O.K? It's Jan, of course...Bye.
UPDATE: 12/7...Link HERE for the announcement from Billy Joel, I found on THE ROLLING STONE today. Jan

Was JOAN BAEZ/BOB DYLAN Relationship Really Like 'Diamonds And Rust'?

by archivesfoundation/flickr cc
A couple that I always loved to see together in the 60's and 70's was/were JOAN BAEZ and BOB DYLAN, AND, when they sang together it was magic and romantic...didn't matter what they sang about, but, so many of their songs were about things that really mattered and made a difference to me back then and changes and civil rights, the Vietnam War or threat of war anywhere in the world, and environmental changes.... I always wanted to know what Baez/Dylan were up to.,.. and later, when Baez  opposed the death penalty and supported gay and lesbian rights,...I was watching and supporting her " In 1976, she was awarded the Thomas Merton Award for her ongoing activism" from WIKIPEDIA . They both got so many awards over the years..and it seemed just perfect to think they would both love each other forever and the world would be a better place because of their perfect love. .
Well, I found a story about them online today at PHYCOLOGY TODAY,...that got me dreaming about these things all over again. But as I read more,.. it became clear to me that they only had a very brief romance together in the 60's.  Gee. It seemed like I always thought of them being together...was it only me? This was a really interesting post from 'Phycology Today', go to the link above and enjoy the memories. The song 'Diamonds And Rust' by Joan Baez was about their love. Jan

CNN "Breaking News: singer Cyndi Lauper has been found dead in her hotel room. She was 60. More news to come."
Guys,..Lauper is so cool..I love her BLUZZZ Album called 'Memphis Blues', she's got alotta stuff on sale at AMAZON HERE. She's an original, a real 'self-starter' and an over achiever like myself,  I guess, has won awards just everywhere and has a Broadway show too called 'Kinky Boots'.

WOW...Hey, Glasses..Way Cool Dude....Let's Party Hardy Tonight O.K?

by George Takei.
This is just an amazing photo that's all...Just reminding me once again just how much fun..a little music and some really cool stuff adds to every party, special event or even just sitting around the house looking good.
You know those 'party' glasses look mighty familiar to me. I know my mom bought me a pair almost exactly like these but, of course, with blue glitter on the very blue horn-rim frames way back in 1957. She said it made my blue eyes....look even BLUER. WOW...Every girl or guy even wants glasses like THAT.  I thought. So, I wore those  'cool' blue-sparkly'  horn-rimmed glasses for several years without complaint, thinking I was IT.. Thanks a lot Mom. You helped make me who I am today. Jan
I found this photo on FACEBOOK this morning from George Takei.
Here's a video about horn rim glasses. This was the first music I remember making wearing glasses O.K.This video is called 'The Girl With The Horn Rimmed Glasses' from TheGoodlucks. This is what the page says: " Published on Nov 20, 2012
A goofy little song, recorded in 1965 -- performed here on the '60s TV show "Shindig", by Carole Shelyne, who was a featured dancer on the show. Carole stood out among the other dance performers on "Shindig" because of her oversized glasses, which led to much popularity and fan mail, and eventually, this novelty song, She appeared on numerous TV shows of the 1960s. Carole now works under the name Carolyne Barry as a successful casting director and acting coach. Her long and interesting career in the entertainment business can be viewed here: . For anyone interested, she has a website" Jan

by Visions of Domino cc
This tune just keeps playing over and over in my mind...why? Got up thinking about it this morning, that's all. By ANGUS AND JULIA STONE, Go here for more...   
It's mysterious, haunting...odd, Angus Stone's voice has a quality to it that...well, brings me into the song,...wondering about it all and his sister's shy half-smile...the clothes, hair boot-'drum's  beat...simple and just right for this song. What do you think? Asked Steve to learn the lyrics,....hope he does AND sings it for me. Just like ita lot that's all. Jan
