What people say about music:
I love all kind of music, ever since I was young.
My taste changed over time but music always
remain a truly effective mood altering system.
When I was alone, a lonely little scrawny
and skinny kid in London, I used to listen to
the Brit's classical music (London
Phiharmonica ) on my record player
late at night. Sometimes, I would run out
of electricity and I had to put more coins
(10p) in the meter. Can you imagine
finding coins and meter in the dark!
I have learned to appreciate and enjoy
more romantic, upbeat music in the last
few years. BUT when I feel
the BLUES, I would delve and dig
deep into my feeling .. and my
sadness, that is when
"Whiter Shade of Pale" and
"Diamonds and Rust" or the Moody
Blues get to dance with my inner soul.
Although I like oldies but I also like
contemporary music. I never get tired
of listening to Kenny G.'s
"The Joy Of Life" and
"Forever In Love". I would prefer
that they are the themes for my
I am in my late 40's and I loved Motown
as well as the harmony of the groups back
in the 50's. You could understand the
words and dance close to the person
that you liked - or keep your distance
from one that you did not. The music
made me feel young, and still does,
whenever I hear it. It was a great time
because things were simpler. There were
drugs, but not as prevalent as it is today.
You could go to bars at 18, and drink
legally. The music made me feel happy, and
reflected my sadness as well.
If I was in a relationship and was having
problems, the music would sometimes
cheer me up because it would tell me
that my problems were universal.
If the relationship was going well, the
music would make me feel that I was
lucky - and some of the music would
make me feel happy. All in all, the music
was simpler than it is today, but then,
so was life.
as a young man just back from
vietnam i purchased an album
" THE TEMPTATIONS IN A
MELLOW MOOD'" this had to
be one of their best. among the many
great songs was " to dream the
impossible dream". they sang it
with so much soul, and helped me
through many sleepless nights. i will
always hold the TEMPTATIONS
near to my heart.................
BOOKS, MUSIC & COMMENTARY
WITH B.D. POE
THE HISTORY OF THE BLUES:
THE ROOTS, THE MUSIC, THE
PEOPLE... BY FRANCIS DAVIS
HYPERION, NY, 1995.
IF you ever read a book on The Blues-
this is the book to read. From Pre-
History to the mid 90's the Blues
ROCK and roll fans as well as R&B
lovers will find their roots here too.
The short essays on Blues performers
are indeed a vital contribution to
black history. The reader may find
that a lot of popular music myth
started with the Blues.
COULD it be that in 1923 a rather
ugly but extremely popular female
blues singer set the standard for
every POP-ROCK performance that
followed? Ma Rainey was her name
and for her day she incorperated
elaborate set designs, outrageous
costumes with her soul shaking
vocals delivered with spirited
struts and sashays! Shades of Elton
JUST who came up with the idea of
selling ones' self to the devil for
musical success and popularity?
Was it Robert Johnson?
(Johnson's songs and lyrics covered
by groups like the Stones and Led
ZEP.) Or was it something already
entrenched in black mythology of
THE author, Davis, makes a strong
case that those famous Robert Johnson
tunes were borrowed, adapted or
influenced by previous black bluesmen.
"Crossroads Blues" he believes was taken
from Charlie Patton's 1929 song
"Down The Dirt Road Blues."
IF Rock's British invasion was steeped in
American Black Blues - Was the Folk
movement inspired by LEDBELLY?
Davis makes the case.
INDEED it was BOB DYLAN'S HWY 61
that Bessie Smith died on under mysterious
MY favorite story from THE HISTORY OF
THE BLUES is one of Canned Heat's
founder "Blind Owl" Wilson (he wasn't
blind that was kind of a tribute to all
the Blind boy black bluesmen like
Blind Lemon Jefferson but he was the high
range vocal on "Going Up The Country" and
"On The Road Again.") rediscovering Blues
pioneer SON HOUSE who had'nt played in
years. Here the white boy, Wilson, re teaches
Son House how he played his own songs long
ALSO fascinating is the story of the interplay
between Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters and
Howlin' Wolf. It was Dixon who wrote
"Hoochie Coochie Man", "Spoonful," "Backdoor
Man," and "Walking The Dog."
I found The History Of The Blues great
bedside reading - You may too!

Who was the only American artist to have
a #1 hit in Britain in 1964? (answer below)
This question is one of 554 in the great book "Pure Gold
Rock & Roll Trivia Questions" by Ron Foster. It's not
available in stores but you can order it by mail.
Visit Ron Foster's Web page for ordering information.
The answer is Roy Orbison. Roy made it to the
top spot with "It's Over" and "Oh, Pretty Woman"
that year. In fact, Roy was the only American to
achieve that feat for 68 weeks, beginning in August
of 1963 and running through February of 1965.

B. MITCHELL REED migrated from NY's WMCA
to KMET and started Radio's Rock Revolution and
had a big hand in KLOS's formative years...
First thing that comes to mind is KFWB circa
1960-1961: Joe Yocam, Roger Christian, Bill Ballance,
Wink Martindale, Jimmy O'Neill
Then KRLA: Bob Hudson, Casey Kasem, Dave Hull,
Dick Biondi (for awhile), Johnny Hayes, Sy Holliday
in the mid 70, I remember Dick Whittington, J
ohnny Magnus and a Vet turned deejay named
Doc Frail being on the air - sort of FM format AM
I think something about Radio Free Oz on KRLA
in 1967 would make a neat trivia question.
Duh I only figured out the reason for the name
a couple of years ago. L. Frank Baum, author
of the Oz books, lived in LA!!!
KHJ somebody else mentioned - Robert W. Morgan,
Don Steele, Charlie Tuna,
I used a lot of transistor batteries back then!
