  Big Pawn: <HeMateMe: nice post, bp. rare stuff is great. Of course I'd rather hear Plant on vocals.>

Yeah, Plant is the man, but he's on harmonica in this one. Having said that, PJ Proby did a pretty good job!

This is cool.

  Big Pawn: < ljfyffe: <Enjoy>You can bet <Big Prejudice>(BP) enjoys PJ Proby, an ardent admirer of Enoch Powell, whom the Beatles satirize in their 'Commonwealth' song....when BP's not listening to Ted Nugent, of course.>

Never did listen to Ted's music.

Zeppelin is my favorite rock band by far, but I also liked the Beatles and the Eagles too. I liked a wide range of music, even disco stuff like Leo Sayer and the Bee Gees. I like 50's rock, rockabilly, blues, jazz, early jazz like Jelly Roll Morton and Fats Waller, classical from Back to Brahms mostly (even some Shoenberg and Scriabin) - but I don't dig country (except Johnny Cash) and don't dig hip hop or rap (except the very first rap tune that made it big Rappers Delight - only for the novelty effect).

I like motown too, people like Al Green and Stevie Wonder.

May-26-16  ljfyffe: <BP>Just equating your taste in music with your political commentary but will take your word, for once...that Nugent's music just doesn't fit your musical tastes and you don't listen to him.... likely the only thing we have in common.

May-26-16  ljfyffe: <Led Zeppelin>'s aforementioned song:

<Friends, you get some silver?/ Did you get a little gold?>
(Gallows Pole: Led Zeppelin)

is taken from an old folk ballad:

<Father, did you bring any silver? Father, did you bring any gold?>
(Maiden Freed From The Gallows)

Lyrics sampled by the Stones as well:

<You got my heart, you got my soul/ You got the the silver, you got the gold>
(You Got The Silver: The Rolling Stones

But such interesting facts are too 'light' for the likes of <dice> and <user> so I'll return to the 'heavy' stuff a bit later the previously mentioned 'No Church In The Wild' by Jay-Z.

  perfidious: <Gallows Pole>.

Lovely stuff.

May-26-16  nok: <some people thought Kingdom Come was a complete Zeppelin rip off>

Thought you were talking about Kingdom Come the album by Sir Lord Baltimore. Big balls were needed to fight off the competition in 1970.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Big Pawn: Yes, Gallows Pole is good stuff indeed. I believe it was attributed to Charles Obscure on the inside of the album, but it was a traditional that was made kind of popular by blues legend Lead Belly.

They only played the song once or twice as Led Zeppelin, and this is one of those recordings from Copenhagen 1971. Slightly rough recording but interesting none the less.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Big Pawn: Kingdom Come was definitely a Zeppelin copy cat, but I didn't mind at all. It was nice to hear new Zeppelin style riffs in the 80's but they died off quickly, as the grunge stuff was right around the corner.

Whitesnake's "In the Still of the Night" was very Zeppelin like as well. The verses were set up like Black Dog, alternating between acapella singing and hard hitting riffing. The middle section takes its cue from Zeppelin's "In the Evening", which is a subdued contrast to the hard rocking first part and last part of the song.

Look what rapper Troy ave did today at a TI concert! He's going to jail for 10 years easily if charged and convicted. Madness

May-26-16  ljfyffe: Jay-Z in the Blakean 'No Church In The Woods', takes aim at the corruption of the teachings of Jesus by organized religion; even comparing himself to God (Jehovah), that is, <Jay-Hova>, the Almighty of the new Rap Religion, Christianity having forgotten about the brotherhood of man by debasing blackmen. But, as in Blake, women do not get a fair shake.

He then does the same regarding the American Dream that turns from the betterment of all to the materialistic greed of just a few as depicted in F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, 'The Great Gatsby":

<Stockmarkets just crash, now I'm just a bill/
History don't repeat itself, it rhymes, 1929 still/
Write like Mark Twain, <<Jay Gatsby>>...

Again, women don't ard not portrayed that well, either by Jay-Z or Fitzgerald. Neither be Eve in the Bible.

May-26-16  ljfyffe: *woman are not

(Jay-Z: 100$ Bill)

May-26-16  cormier: The Latest: G-7 leaders pledge to tackle global growth
May-27-16  dynamica: by Iris Blanche

Maybe, itís the simplicity.
Maybe, itís the rhythm and blurred notes that form a hazy melody. Maybe, itís the whistling of inherent sadness.

But for me, it touches something deeper. Some intrinsic instinct that connects music to our souls. To me, the harmonica is a promise.

A promise that anybody can learn something new and can make a little dent of a sound in this big universe. A promise that there is a whole world out there to see. Small hands, big hands, blue or wrinkled hands can play the harmonica.

No matter where you are in your journey, the harmonica will always sound inescapably like a harmonica. Maybe that shiny, metal box is just the kind of pocket-sized assurance I need.

May-27-16  ljfyffe: Dylan combines poetics with the harmonica;
revolutionizes the popular music scene along with the Beats.

Hip-Hoppers <Black Star> call on Nobel Prize-winning writer and poet Toni Morrison, who experiences the days of legal segregation:

<We courted death in order to call ourselves brave, and hid like theives in the night> (Toni Morrison: The Bluest Eyes)

<Chasing after death, so we can call ourselves brave/
Still living like mental slaves/
Hiding like thieves in the night>

<Black Star: Thieves In The Night>

PJ Proby mocks black singers expressing themselves through the blues: 'It's Tough Being a N....' if they have no reason to complain.

<BP> likes that. Enjoy.
