Neil Young & Booker T & the M.G,s - Separate Ways (Torhout Belgium 1993 )

                  NEIL YOUNG                                                             STEVE CROPPER

In 1993, Neil Young collaborated with Booker T and the MGs for a summer tour of Europe and North America.
  I saw two performances in this line-up, one in Ahoy Rotterdam (Holland) and one in Torhout (Belgium) Two very special performances ..

  "Separate Ways"

Steve Cropper Guitar,Jim Keltner Drums,Donald"Duck"Dun Bass,Astrid Young,Annie Stocking Vocals

 "I won't apologize
The light shone from in your eyes
It isn't gone,
It will soon come back again.
Though we go our separate ways
Lookin' for better days

And I'm feeling better now,
a lot more alive somehow,
my heart is open
and my love comes pouring through.""

 Houston Chronicle critic Marty Racine, who saw the show… in Houston, was also impressed. Praising the Cropper/Young guitar interplay, he wrote, “Due to a restless muse and a repertoire three decades long, Young’s oldest music sounded ever poignant. And thanks to his able backup, the songs were served well. In the land of Noise, that combination made the loudest impact of all.”

The Beatles- Coliseum Washingtom (11Febr. 1964)

Het was een koude avond die elfde februari 1964 in Washington DC.
In het het plaatselijke Coliseum theater daarintegen was het bloedheet.
The Beatles gingen voor het eerst live optreden op Amerikaanse grond en de verwachtingen waren hoog gespannen.Het publiek werd eerst opgewarmd met groepen als The Carravels ,Tommy Roe en the Chiffons.

Roll Over Beethoven

The Beatles komen op en wat een fantastische chaos!Om iedereen van het optreden te laten genieten had men een draaibaar drumstel gecreeerd en moest tussen de nummers regelmatig de opstelling worden veranderd.De mannen worden er niet warm of koud van en hebben duidelijk plezier in het hele gebeuren.

From Me To You

Het concert duurde ongeveer een uur en was mischien wel een van hun meest memorabele optredens.Tickets varieerden van $2 tot $4,

This Boy

Dtt schreef de bekende muziekrececent Richie Unterberger:
“…[H]ere are the early Beatles at their on-stage best. They’re more visibly delighted, indeed almost overwhelmed, by the crowd’s enthusiasm here than at any time before or since. Despite the seeming overnight success of their invasion of America, it had in reality been a long hard climb to the top, taking about seven years of diligent work and numerous excruciating setbacks, and also a year or so where they’d made virtually no inroads into the U.S. market despite their mushrooming British superstardom. This was the payoff, and though the group would get fed up with touring before screaming teenagers within a couple of years, at the Washington Coliseum they were if anything having an even greater time than their admirers….”

Matig beelden ,slecht geluid maar toch een van de mooiste concert films uit mijn verzameling!!!!!

John Lennon - Mother - (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980)

John Lennon Live in New York City 1972

Two concerts took place, in the afternoon and evening of 30 August 1972 .

"Mother"is  first released on his 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. An edited version of the song was issued as a single in the United States on Apple Records, on 28 December 1970.

  "Mother" is actually a cry to both his parents, who abandoned him in his childhood. His father, Alf, left the family when John was an infant. His mother, Julia, didn't live with her son, although they had a good relationship; she was hit and killed in a car accident on 15 July 1958 by a drunk off-duty policeman named Eric Clague, when Lennon was 17.

  "He'll Have to Go" is an American country and pop hit recorded on October 15, 1959, by Jim Reeves. The song, released in the fall of 1959, went on to become a massive hit in both genres early in 1960.

 "He'll Have to Go" has been covered by many artists. Elvis Presley recorded his version of "He'll Have to Go" on October 31, 1976, at his last known studio recording session; it is believed to be the final song he ever recorded in a studio setting.[9]
The song prompted the answer song "He'll Have to Stay" by Jeanne Black. Her song reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot C&W Sides chart and No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 later in 1960. Skeeter Davis made a cover of it in 1961. "He'll Have to Stay" also got an answer song: "I'm Gonna Stay". It was recorded by Johnny Scoggins and released on the single Fraternity Records 869.
This song was also done by Solomon Burke in 1965/66(c) on the Soul chart. It was one of his biggest hits.
Harry James recorded a version on the 1966 album Harry James & His Western Friends (Dot DLP 3735 and DLP 25735).
Ry Cooder covered the song on his 1976 album Chicken Skin Music.
Anne Murray, Connie Francis, Mary Ford, Jerry Lee Lewis, Nat King Cole and Tom Jones have recorded versions of the song.

Bob Dylan - If Dogs Run Free

                                Wembley Arena London,England - October 6, 2000
 Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar) Larry Campbell (guitar) Charlie Sexton (guitar) Tony Garnier (bass)
David Kemper (drums)

 If Dogs Run Free (album New Morning)

If dogs run free, then why not we
Across the swooping plain?
My ears hear a symphony
Of two mules, trains and rain
The best is always yet to come
That’s what they explain to me
Just do your thing, you’ll be king
If dogs run free

If dogs run free, why not me
Across the swamp of time?
My mind weaves a symphony
And tapestry of rhyme
Oh, winds which rush my tale to thee
So it may flow and be
To each his own, it’s all unknown
If dogs run free

If dogs run free, then what must be
Must be, and that is all
True love can make a blade of grass
Stand up straight and tall
In harmony with the cosmic sea
True love needs no company
It can cure the soul, it can make it whole
If dogs run free
