I like this song. Maybe I'm a sourpuss but "American Graffiti" doesn't stand the test of time.
One of the greats!
Maybe it is reverse racism. I don't think so. Black people are superior musicians. No arguments please. No, my bad. Argue all you want to.
Well named artist, if this guy isn't "Mungo" who is?
I'm watching Ken Burns's "The Vietnam War" again. Some of the oldies in the sound track were so right for the period that it's amazing.
Looks like I will always remember that time with a lot of pain. Perhaps I have to?
Three beyond majorly talented musicians
After I came home from the hospital I listened to this one on the brand new stereo gear that I scored while being an Imperialist Running Dog in Viet-Nam.
Whose time? The was my sisters generation, 4 years older than myself.
Yet I really relate to it it. I remember my sisters senior year. She was always off somewhere
with her friends. The sound track was her sound track.
But nothing stands the test of time if you think some things do we haven't waited long enough.
But the music she loved is still with us 50 years on. I may not mean much on times clock, but I still love it.
And I still harbor affection for this movie. I tried to watch it last night but none of my services have it on file, except that I pay to see it.
So I wait for it to come around again.":O}
Another kind of song...
Long before Stanford and sons ( TV comedy series)
Red fox was recording "Blue" comedy albums and doing very well in stand up.
For my part I never caught more than the choirs but the rest is pretty OK by me.":O}
Don't like going to long without hearing from the master...
Yes you are a racist. Or rather you are ignorant of the fact that there is no such animal as race.
Among animals there are sub-species, animals closely related but genetically differentiated in small ways but ways that matter.
There are no sub species in the human family. But like cats we come in different colors.
If we were skinned we would all be the same. Only the very most surface of ourselves is in any way different.
As with sports the very worst way to compare anything is by it's surface appearance.
For every great black musician there are a thousand black men who can't play a note.
So how can we judge music by color? If you do you gonna have to listen to a lot of crap.
White talent doesn't face the same hostility in this world as Black talent.
But that's not down to the color of their skin. It's down to white bigotry.
But you can not point to a white man and declare him a bigot as many of us despise bigotry.
Skin pigmentation only speaks to who needs sun tan lotion, it can't tell you who can swim.
Culturally we get a lot of white mediocrity, because they rarely face the same push back as black artist.
I see far fewer "average" black talents, because among Blacks only the strong survive in a predominately white population.
But for every Hendrix there is a Kottke. For every Clapton there is a BB king.
Another favorite, I save the bad stuff for when I go deaf!
Time passes for us all
Just look at the fingers on the man!! ":O}
All I can say is that it's a great song. The video doesn't live up to the song, imho.
Meh, call me a sourpuss. I wish it was a far better film, the time it celebrates is good by me.
I well remember listening to Wolfman Jack while driving in the deserts of southern California at night. The mighty XERB will live on forever, green in my memory.
