Something Different for you. 

[I was going to post a tune by me, but did not want to upset my followers.  hehee!]

Today I found these in my drafts, and have been there for a long while and here is something very different from the normal run of the mill music. I know we all have little time to spare on blogs but these video’s are well worth the time.

I am sure if you listen to the music here and judge them for what they are you will be knocked off your feet. Whats more there are many more to listen to with their links at the end of each video. So please enjoy, I am sure you will.

This second one is pretty special, the video is brilliant.

Slightly longer video below but well worth the time to listen.

Just for the music..

This news of Mathew Southern Comfort is what inspired this simple piece of memory blasting. I am not going to do any info on any because we have already used CSN, and there is no need for anything on the other Video. Just asking you all to enjoy them for their  part in the history of music and the hippy era.

I heard on our news today that Mathews Southern Comfort are reforming or have just reformed.

Flower Power Was It?

Standard

3rd August 2102

The 1965  year was a grand year for the hippie movement. Although the Flower power originated in Berkeley, California, USA. But quickly took hold here in the UK. It did not seem right or the same for us in the UK to be involved in this movement. It just looked false to me. But it was taken a little more serious by the women of the era. It did not look quite so silly, if you like for better words, for a woman to have flowers in their hair as it did the men. don’t get me wrong though man, the men did put flowers in their hair, just not so many of us.

This song was to me what the era was all about. It just takes me back to those sunny days, crashing out on the grass, on the river bank, with a group of us. Girlfriends hand in yours, with their flowy colourful  wrap around skirts, billowing in the breeze. Guitars in hand and eventually settling on bank and everyone playing or singing. Making music. Some might not have called it music, but we did, and is still being played today.

 This image sums up the American movement. A really beautiful and powerful image. I remember images very similar to this, when protest groups were being confronted by the military.

And a completely different musical view from my particular tastes. But is there a particular song that rings your bell.

And now a Blast from my side of the pond. My particular group and circle of friends were not actually Beatles fans, at least not until Sgt Peppers was released and all sorts of accusations started flying by media.

 

We have got one person with a story to tell, so watch this space. But still want more of you out there that has got a little story or music memory that we could all share.

 Can you dig it man, come on join with our Jam.
