very interesting column
#1
The WSJ Weekender has a guest column called "Playlist"; various folks (authors, music biz folks, a drag racer) talk about their fave song; this week it's Dave Barry on "Gloria"--total hoot.: http://online.wsj.com/articles/dave-barry-why-van-morrisons-gloria-is-the-best-song-ever-1403809634?KEYWORDS=playlist and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0aHmMfZTEw

Just had to include this one: [URL="http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304652804579572252966053362?mod=WSJ_article_exploremore"]http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304652804579572252966053362?mod=WSJ_article_exploremore
Here's the compilation the article showcases and here's the Albert Ammons piece from it: [/URL]http://www.allmusic.com/album/juke-joint...0000080497 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7Up0cQcmqo << sure can see where this might alter young player's development

Real fun column--delve for yourself.

What a great article, jazzbo! I read a few of the others, and then went looking for the Rock Bottom Remainders' performance of Gloria (no luck, but I did enjoy their performance of "In the Midnight Hour"). Thank you!!

Everyone has an Angel: a Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us: it's everyone of us who holds power over the world we create. -Sweet Pea

Thanks for the compliment and the clip. This band is a revolving cast of characters, all well-established authors blowing off steam. Came across this great saying from that profound philosopher, Anon.: "Knowledge is like a river--the deeper it is, the less noise it makes." << presented by a babbling brook.
