DECEMBER 25th: JAMES BROWN DAY

Posted by Billyjam, December 25, 2007 06:15am | Post a Comment

Today, December 25th, means different things to different people. To many, including myself, it will now forever be the anniversary of the passing of one of music's greatest artist's ever: James Brown, aka The Godfather of Soul, aka The Hardest Working Man in Show Business.  Exactly one year ago today, Dec 25 2006, James Brown died at age 73 from congestive heart failure resulting from complications of pneumonia.  And that shocking news, which spread fast and kept getting retold over that whole holiday week last year, put a damper on the festivities for many of us.

So this December 25th I say spill a lil on the curb for James Brown in his honor or drink a toast to the man's memory. And be sure to listen to some of the incredible legacy he left behind. What is amazing about the music of James Brown, and of course the stellar JB band (as witnessed in concert footage below from '71), is that it never ages or loses its edge or uplifting vibrancy. And I for one can literally listen to James Brown all day long and never get tired of it.

R.I.P. James Brown. We will never forget you!

Merry Christmas

Mac bought daddy a Rolling Stones album back in 1983...It had kind of a naughty cover... Daddy stored some Stones clippings along with the original shrink and xmas tag...






































Quite an amazing piece, possibly Wladziu is sitting up waiting for his brother George to call to spread a little holiday cheer???
1978 cheapo release on the Mistletoe label- a subsidiary of Springboard.  A complete Springboard post is in the works...

YOUR OWN HOLIDAY YULE LOG

Posted by Billyjam, December 24, 2007 08:31pm | Post a Comment

Above is your very own holiday yule log -- one of many kindly posted on YouTube for those without a fireplace or a TV to watch it on a local channel. This one comes with its own soundtrack which you can replace with your own music. It is from a station in New York and runs for about ten minutes, longer than most others posted, but you can loop it to keep it going. And if you cannot enlarge it to fit your whole  computer screen from above, then just click directly on the YouTube site stream and enlarge by clicking in the lower right corner.
                                                                   Peace for the holidays!
