(DONT CLICK THE “prompt” on the video that asks if you “want to see the ‘official’ version..” it’s a trick. BUT DAMN WHAT A GOOD TRICK, i only wish their music was better. haaaaaa be warned)

Researching names he’s dropping in the first half gives me this mellow late-night mix for you:

Jimmy Reed

Says Keith, “He had two tempos. But he understood the magic of repetition, of monotony, transforming itself to become this sort of hypnotic, trancelike thing. We were fascinated by it, Brian and I. We would spend every spare moment trying to get down Jimmy Reed’s guitar sounds.”

He loved the Sun sound, and the rough blues gents associated with it.

Pat Hare

Unfortunately for Pat Hare’s cheating wife, he did just what he says he’s going to do.

Robert Johnson

Again, in Keith’s words: “Robert Johnson was like an orchestra all by himself. Some of his best stuff is almost Bach-like in construction.”

I’m enjoying reading about the early years of The Stones and what shaped the sound they are still honing and loving to play to this day. Learning about their peers and influences along the way is giving me quite an education. Somehow, I think the education I’ll get once I hit the 80’s will be something wholly different. Ha.

Also reading Just Kids by Patti Smith, giving me another very interesting look into Rock N’ Roll in the 1970’s I’m really enjoying. More on that later–let’s just say the list of records/books/photographs to look up is enormous.

Speaking of records, I’ll be back at the Layover this Tuesday playing a mess of new stuff. Come say goodbye to Amanda Kennedy, and bring your dancing shoes.

ok. Thanks, Keith Richards, for the night time blues relaxation. And for writing such a good book. Cheers! xo. DTM

Not enough exercise today? Too much spice in my food? Two coffee-afternoon? (ONE, TWO) The heat? I dunno but I am definitely U.A.N.>>

Getting very stoked for OCTOBER, y’all. One of my favorite months in this BIG COUNTRY

Planning an extra-special Babe Cave-O-Ween extravaganza, starring Sirbo Turbo, me as a giant octopus, and M as the resident costumer. She’ll be there raising $$ for her Sunset Boat Party ticket. B/C if M wants anything, it’s to dance.

You’re not gonna wanna miss this one. Flier coming soon. Oh, and one more thing>>>

Cuz I’m not sleeeeeeeeepinnnnn
