This was the third concert in three days in Oslo 2015. What an experience it was experiencing him and his great band three days in a row! This is our account of the concert with pictures and sound from the guy who sat next to me with a very nice sound-rig. Nice memories 🙂
Rising from the New York punk movement of the 70’s, Patti Smith is an influential singer and musician known for combining spoken word poetry with primal garage rock. By 1976, she had released her debut Horses and the more raw-sounding Radio Ethiopia.
Her October 3rd, 1976 concert at The Konserthuset in Stockholm, Sweden was filmed and recorded for broadcast, documenting this early stage in her career. Prior to the internet, the audio portion had been circulated among fans with the bootleg title, ‘I Never Talked To Bob Dylan,’ a slight reference to the short interview that accompanied the performance.
Well, Eddie Grace’s Buick got four bullet holes in the side
And Charlie DeLisle is sittin’ at the top of an avocado tree
Mrs. Storm will stab you with a steak knife if you step on her lawn
I got a half a pack of Lucky Strikes, man, so come along with me
And let’s fill our pockets with macadamia nuts
And go over to Bobby Goodmanson’s and jump off the roof
Still more lushly sentimental was “Kentucky Avenue,” the great song of Waits’ childhood. One of his most unashamedly emotional outpourings, it mourned lost innocence with a compassion few other songwriters have ever attempted, let alone achieved. This wasn’t The Waltons—the lyric was full of wanton violence and vandalism—but as the song reached its climax, the love in Waits’ voice, heaved from his memory, was almost too much to bear.

This is a great show from Kosei Nenkin Hall in Tokyo, Japan 1983! (september 1st, or maybe 2nd…)
From about 1983 until 1986, The Band consisted of original members Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel and Garth Hudson, along with the four members of Fayetteville Arkansas’s Cate Brothers Band, Earl and Ernie Cate, Ron Eoff, and Terry Cagle. Terry is Levon’s nephew and plays and sings a lot like his Uncle Levon. Earl and Ernie play keys and amazing guitar, respectively. Ernie is a soulful singer. Ron is an accomplished bassist, and his presence allowed Rick Danko to play some acoustic guitar and fiddle, just as having Terry Cagle on drums freed Levon to play mandolin some.

When I got into rock ‘n’ roll, I didn’t even think I had any option or alternative. It showed me where my future was, just like some people know they are going to be doctors or lawyers or shortstop for the New York Yankees.

Babe, I couldn’t find the door
Couldn’t even see the floor
I’d be sad and blue
