Everything I Wanna Know 'Bout....'People Get Ready' By CURTIS MAYFIELD

by  cdrummbks cc
Wanna know ALL there is about the song 'People Get Ready'? [thanks guillaimz] Well, we heard that song today, done by the CHAMBER BROTHERS and HERE. It was a Holiday gift from,  who Steve likes to calls.... THE Doctor of Funk,  he's a very special and gifted tenor sax man. [I need to ask him if I can post his name on this story though,..Jan]...PLEASE, Please can I?.... with sugar on top?  .O.K. folks if our friend,... 'the inimitable Tenor Saxophone Extraordinaire" mystery person  gives me the O.K.,. I'll update this post right now. 11/29...UPDATE: Got the O.K...'YEAH'. His name is....drum roll please...' D.R.Phillips' . Checked the spelling and everything....Jan
'Boy, you guys just wanna let you all know that keeping MY mouth shut...IS so hard.'
So,  let me look up CURTIS MAYFIELD and HERE, 'cause he's cool and it will keep me kinda busy...'til I hear from our mystery Sax Man.....O.K?
Let's see...Mayfield  gained fame in the 50's and 60's with THE IMPRESIONS....he was a blues/funk guitarist, singer/song writer. Worked hard in the civil rights
Here's a guote from WIKIPEDIA: " Mayfield is regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious African-American music.[1][2] Being one of the most celebrated figures in the genre of soul and 20th-century music," Listen to this.... PEOPLE GET READY, by Curtis Mayfield, by Geepereet.
: winner of both the Grammy Legend Award (in 1994) and theGrammy Lifetime Achievement Award (in 1995), and he was a double inductee into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, inducted as a member of the Impressions into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, and again in 1999 as a solo artist. He is also a two-time Grammy Hall of Fameinductee."...all this I found in WIKIPEDIA.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
Gotta go, swill finish this tomorrow. Jan
I'm back....Check the top video link for lotsa stuff about Mayfield's song. Jan

Just ME And BOB DYLAN...Alone Together...'My Dream Come True'

by  incase cc
Steve got me online today. Hey, talk about lucky....Look what I found..., a private concert with just me and BOB DYLAN and HERE,,,,Well. this recent story from THE ROLLING STONE caught my eye, of course...being THAT is one of my all time favorite fantasy's of all time and all.
This is what the story was about....this guy, a fan of Dylan's named Fredrik Wikingsson  who,really liked  Dylan, of course, and who doesn't? O.K? He got a private show or concert from Dylan yesterday...that's /right...just Wilingson and Dylan and no one else in the place or theater...I just had to know 'How'd He Do That??'...I can be at THE TRIAD THEATER in Yelm ANY day this week just waiting for Dylan if he'has time to  give a show to ME...I'm a BIG fan too.
I guess, Dylan was wonderful, kept Wikingson smiling  doing covers and stuff. You know, I wouldn't care what Bob Dylan sang either  Read the whole story at the link. O.K? Jan
I'll post some Dylan video kinj favorites below.

No Way, 'One Size Fits All?'.......SASS Tonight at THURM's

by fontplaydotcom cc
You've heard that old saying....'One size fits all'...haven't you? well, what's up with that, anyway? We're ALL unique, aren't we? I thought so. 'One size fits all.', just doesn't work when it comes to music. Everyone likes something different. Music is so, so well, personal.  I remember that first kiss,  whenever that certain song comes on the radio....when I was with 'HIM'. Lotsa songs remind me of other times, other places. 
So, tonight....SASS will be doing BLUZZZ and rock tonight at UNCLE THURM's SOUL FOOD in Tacoma, WA. If this type of music does it for it does me, 'cause ALL BLUZZZ's NOT the same...this IS the best.. I'll see you there 'round dinner time....Fried chicken, ribs, lotsa BBQed stuff, you know what I won't go away hungry. Yum,  Jan
Some cool video links...

Not So Fast...Who Says...It's the Very Last Time For PINK FLOYD?

by  nevil zaveri cc
O.K....I found this in THE ROLLING STONE....DAVID GILMORE/guitar/vocals of PINK FLOYD  or HERE has had enough, he's tired of touring all over the place....wants to be home with family, even though the money's good, lotsa money at the box office,[ I know some things are more valuable than dollars and people and family....Jan].
Anyway, Gilmore would like to spend more time with his young kids or creating some solo albums. Well, I guess that does's really hard to do music in a band without the guitarist and vocalist....Isn't it?
Well, not so fast...Gilmore looked again at some old material the band did in 1994. He and NICK MASON/drums 'overdubbed' parts of it....They came up with some really fine stuff. AND, 'waa-laa' spell?...a new album is due to come out on November 10th...called 'Endless River' with this stuff on it.. David Gilmore thinks this is great material , and ....that'll be the end of Pink Floyd .
I'm just not so sure....Gilmore is a's in his blood. Yes, it's difficult work and all that, and family time is lost....but wait. AGAIN, he's a musician....they NEVER seem to quit music. Let's wait and see. O.K? Jan
I'll post some Pink Floyd favorites below. O.K?? Just let me post this on FACEBOOK first. Jan
