I just had this idea of posting a tune daily, or thereabouts anyway, that I'd like to share with my buddies here. Please feel free to add your own.

Nice ones, Scott. Man, Page looks like a schoolboy in that acoustic clip.

I became a Jeff Beck fan in college, thanks to classmate Joel Brinkley (David's son). He turned me on to Beck, and explained he was hard to get into initially because his style is so odd. Beck starts to play something, and you wonder "WTF is he doing there?!!?" Then he gets to the end, and you understand that "Oh yeah, THAT'S WTF he was doing there!" :r

A story behind today's cut. Some time back a friend told me she'd checked the forecast not by asking DaBear but by going to a website call Weather Underground. She, being a generation younger than me, did not understand why I looked at her shocked and confused, nor why I suggested it was as odd a name as calling your food service business Al-Cater. You youngsters may not get it either, but we old farts do. :D

OK, I know there are a lot of Eagles fans out there (and I ain't talking football), but I ain't one of them. Of all the "supergroups" out there, I thought they did the least with the most talent of them all . . . combined! In evidence, I provide the following:

There's a story behind today's tune. Growing up in rural NC during the '50s and '60s, there wasn't a lot of options for hearing the latest music in the rock genre. We'd see the big names on Ed Sullivan, and had Top 40 hits on AM radio heard through an earplug with our 9-volt transistor radios (some of you remember them), so I heard very little of the harder rock album cuts many others were privy to . . . and what I did hear, I did not much like. They did not seem tuneful, nor did the musicians seem very skilled. But late one night when still in high school (and in OUR school, there may have been only two or three students who were ever high on anything but bourbon :D ), I was listening to WOWO out of Ft. Wayne, which we could pick up only after the sun was well down. That night I heard a song that blew me away, and I thought "Damn, those guys are pretty good". I did not know the song or group, but I liked it so much that it stuck in my head . . . FOR FORTY YEARS! Yes, I never heard that damn song again, even though I listened to a TON of tunes in my college and post-college years, often under the tutelage of folks much more knowledgeable than myself.

Fast forward that four decades to an evening a year or so back. I was sitting with a buddy smoking a stogie and shooting the $#!+, and I mentioned this song. As I said, I did not know its name, but recalled its tag theme riff clearly . . . daDAdaDAdaDUM, daDAdaDAdaDUM, BOM!, daDAdaDAdaDUM, daDAdaDAdaDUM, BOM! . . . and told my friend that, knowing what I know now, I suspected it was Cream. He looked at me kinda funny, held up a finger, then walked to his car parked nearby, coming back with his iPod. He fiddled with the buttons a few seconds, stuck the buds in my ear, and pushed PLAY. And then, like a gift out of heaven, that song which had been stuck in my head for forty years was once again flowing into my ears.

Now, let it flow into yours. :r

When I was a bitty turd, I had a pocket crystal radio that was a biege plastic rectangular box with a jack for the crusty earplug. Then there was an antenna like thing you slid in and out that served as a crude dial. I loved that thing.
When I got old enough to really love music, I got some Who, Nugent, and Elvis Costello. I think those came for my birthday.
Then I haunted the bargain junk bin at Record Mart for years. That's where I found everything worth finding.
I bet it took me two years to find Hey, Hey, What Can I Do? on 45. It was the only way it could be gotten and I looked EVERYWHERE. One guy at Record Mart actually said to me, after seeing me there every other day for a couple years, and me asking about that 45 a hundred times, "we had two yesterday but they were gone immediately."
I killed him.

Almost forgot...
I checked the notes on that tune and added &fmt=18 to the url to catch it in stereo. 3 times. :D

I'll raise you a Johnny Lee Hooker (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDBz4ASw6uU), Thomas.
I lived off 100% blues for years. Johnny Lee remains my favorite to this day. It doesn't matter what he's playing, it's all him.
Kinda like Lucinda Williams (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ql_d39GOmxw). She's the same way.
