"I thought that i was the only person who owns a hawwkwind album"
i built my first Beesa to the sounds of "X in search of Space." Still have the giant gate fold super psychedelic Live album. As a wannabe bass player i always liked Lemmy, Hawkwind wasnt the same without him. Compared to some of the stuff from that era it has lasted the test of time fairly well, may even have been years ahead.
never saw them live , but i once fed Simon, one of their lighting roadies, a full Scottish breakfast with Stornoway Black Pudding. John Lyddon / rotten of the Sex pistols has commented on how the Hawkwind sound was influential to their sound. Weird eh!

I'm listening to a couple things, first- I got onto these compilations of early (1950s, maybe 60s and earlier) "country" music from of all places, Africa. Apparently some mining company imported heavily edited western films featuring singing cowboys from the 30s? 40? into mining camps in South Africa, as a respite from brutal conditions there. The music apparently caught on, perhaps unsurprisingly. The record label Olvido Rcords has all these cool, historical recordings of various artists and lots of stuff to listen to on their website. It's interesting, acoustic fingerpicking, with all manner of instrumentation. Sounds almost classical at times. It's very cool, and sort of brings some of the more modern Afropop and African guitar sounds full circle.
OK back to the "real" world... Driving home yesterday, The radio station I had on was revisiting the year 2003. They played these 3 songs back to back and man it made for some great drive time!
Drive By Truckers are a VERY cool band that's been around a while. If you've not got onto them, you better get with the program, friend. Listen to the soaring guitars on Decoration Day. but first, some reading to bring you up to speed
Rodney Crowell is a totally amazing songwriter and performer. He's written songs you've heard, one of the sort of people who creates songs that others make famous. Here's Fate's Right Hand and in this you can hear his awesome ability to string words & music together. Rodney Crowell. Wow.

The Guess Who are a great band, I always thought that their Live at The Paramount was one of the best live albums going...â€¦â€¦â€¦.but the two songs Guess Who/Airbag are completely different. I don't think there is any competition tbh, it'd be like a hawk and a trout having a mud race.
