When Giants Collide

What happens when a really great band, (Dream Theater), performs a really great album, (Dark Side of the Moon), live?

Well I would say "Magic!", but rather than believe me why don't you check it out for yourself?

Here are a few YouTube links:

Timer - Reverberi

I once owned many, many LPs.  As they were a pain to cart around, and CDs are, (IMHO at least!), a superior technology, I sold them all off about 20 years ago.

One LP I wish I had not departed with was Timer, by the wonderful Gian Piero Reverberi.  I know it's unnecessary, but further proof that life is unfair, and that the "masses", (whoever they may be), have pedestrian tastes, is borne out in the fact that this fantastic album has never, to my knowledge, been rereleased in any other updated format.  Phooey!!  So unless you want to track down an old copy of the LP, you're out of luck getting your hands on it.

But don't give up all hope, as YouTube once again may come to our rescue!  As I write this, (25/June/2016), most of the tracks for this album may be found on YouTube, and using an MP3 converter site such as, you may manually download the tracks from this album, and then burn a CD if so inclined.

Here are the tracks for the album, with YouTube links:

Improvviso Fantasia Op. 66  -

Cat Casanova  -

Timer  -

Soana  -

Roller  -

Penny  -

O Sole Mio  -  missing in action!  Phooey!

Adagio Cantabile  -

Album  -  missing in action ..... Phooey!!

So there it is, MOST of Reverberi's really great Timer album.

Jimi Hendrix's Angel

I love the song "Angel" by Jimi Hendrix, but have had a damn hard time finding an original copy on YouTube that I can download.  Yeah, there are some very good covers, but I'd like to find the original and grab an MP3.

If you know of where I can find one, please let me know in a comment.

Here are some good versions on vimeo:  -  original  -  if you like Hendrix, you'll like this mellow version

Here's some of what YouTube's got:  -  an odd, (I think), version  -  Fiona Apple cover, which I like - nice instrumental cover

While we're on the topic of Hendrix covers, I'd be remiss not to mention this video from Jess "CHECK OUT THE BOOBS!" Greenberg.  Yeah it's "Little Wing", not "Angel", but she does a good job, and she does have nice boobs: .

Return of the Chicken Wire Gang!

A long, long time ago I wrote a post about the Chicken Wire Gang, a bunch of talented guys who played some tunes in Chapel Hill, NC.   Well ladies and gentlemen, I am very please to announce that they have apparently regrouped, at least according to their Facebook page: .

For a sample of their music, check out these videos on YouTube:

"Buddha, Buddha, Buddha" -

"Grand Mamoo", live!  -

"Pine Tree Shade"  -

Some guy even made a tribute video to them!

Long live the Chicken Wire Gang!!
