I first felt J.B. on an LP titled “Chicago: The Blues Today” in ’66. There was something painfully joyous in his messaging I always retained. It related to how we translate this mortal coil we are bound to. He had that ‘cry’ in his voice so many strive for. It’s the vigorous wail life demands.

The 1939 movie Stagecoach created three icons: John Wayne, John Ford, and the 30,000 acres of glory on the Utah-Arizona border known as Monument Valley. It was a pioneering rancher, Harry Goulding, who brought Hollywood to his home, and helped shape America’s vision of the West. –Buzz Bissinger

The Land of a Thousand Dances has become the land of 1000 TV talent shows. One can try and find the next ‘Idol’, ‘Voice’ or ‘Dancing Star’ but the quest is a contrived expedition into consumer madness & the artists are mostly baby formula. Musical nobility is often just a snare drum on vinyl moment.

This segment begins to define the George Jones surge into Pop culture lore. His personal saga is reflected in every note engaged. Jones ran from the star spectrum he felt destined to suffocate his gift. In doing so he became a “Possum”, forever loved

Carson slept with America every weeknight at 11:30 PM. His command of the TV medium was so fervent that he sustained for 30 years. Time waits for no one but no one will again capture the after dark lightning in a ‘tube’ that Johnny did. He was a Nations laughter and it’s after hour Adult Sitter.

Roky Erickson caught my psyche in ’65, before schizophrenia became his calling card to a new notoriety. His 13th Floor Elevators are easily an influence still being negotiated in the Rock pastures. This T-Tone version of his nostalgic ‘Nothing In Return” is a deep reminder of his hurting wisdom.

He was the guitar slinger Dylan trusted when Bobby plugged in at Newport in ’65. He was the cat Paul Butterfield thought was the best kid on the Chicago blues block. He formed one of the finest Soulful Blues combos of the 60’s, The Electric Flag. He was Michael Bloomfield and he split way too soon.

Annette Snell - "Footprints On My Mind" - ...

Here is a voice lost to the tyranny time can often charter. She produced a cry to be reckoned with, a dark urge and an impassioned declaration destined to pronounce a ponderous burden. ‘How could anyone possibly feel so much and live to tell us about it?’ That was my response to this feat in ‘72.
