A Gem From Early '67
Bought Neil Young's new record tonight. Look forward with great anticipation to everything he records. Be listening to it on the way home from the sawmill on Friday. Me, Neil Young and six fucking cold ones. Traffic will be fucked enough for me to get the beer down and be wishing I had a couple more unless Dope City takes the ICBM hit its Starbucks worshiping coffee drones so richly deserve.
Tonight I instead listened to Little Richard's Greatest Hits: Recorded Live! on my Luxman cassette deck. From 1967. That was a while ago. Had me smiling like Richard Thompson will have Dope City's fucking hippies smiling on Friday Night. More hooting and hollering you will not hear any place these days aside from the rail of a well attended day at the races.
And what a band - Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Glenn Willings, Eddie Fletcher, Billy Preston and an unknown kick ass drummer. God damn it they could play!
Little Richard Forever. Forever Little Richard. Long live rock 'n' roll, motherfuckers. Long live rock 'n' roll!
