The latest PBS pledge-month boomer-fest on KQED right now, revolves around the classic TV show "Hullabaloo". Most of the clips are in B&W; apparently NBC destroyed most of the original color tapes. Oops.  Some great stuff, though.

Last nite Mad Men unearthed the orig charted version of this song:

Kudos to them -- the show has been on a roll the past few weeks in terms of closing-credot music (last week it was the Ms & Ps, "Words of Love")

Anyone here watching Game Of Thrones?  I'm not, because I quit HBO after my cable bill skyrocketed, but I've read the books multiple times, and last night's episode was the one I was waiting for (no spoilers).  The reaction on the web has been everything I hoped for.  Hee hee.

For those (like me) who missed the Hendrix documentary on PBS last night, it's available here:

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters/episodes/jimi-hendrix/film-jimi-hendrix-hear-my-train-a-comin/2756/

Interesting that the doc seems to be sponsored by Goldman Sachs (online anyway) because when I think Hendrix, Goldman is not the first thing that comes to mind. Although you could say that Goldman are the Jimi Hendrix of financial thievery.

I apologize.  I thought about posting a note but didn't.  Like most PBS programs, it will very likely
air again in months ahead, perhaps even over the winter holidays.  If I see it again I'll mention it.

Anybody watch Austin City Limits on PBS these days?

Everything old is new again... ACL has been featuring a lot of "Americana," which I guess is
shorter way of saying "we didn't know enough people to start a whole bluegrass group."

Americana or not, a lot of the contemporary stuff I hear on the show doesn't really impress me.
Not that it's bad, per se, but it's not something new and interesting, nor does it compare in
musical excellence to the best from the past.

One big exception is Sarah Jarosz.  She recently made her second appearance on ACL and
I was not disappointed.  I really enjoy her material and she, as well as her bandmates, seem
to be excellent musicians.

Rolling Stones from the Vault - The Marquee - Live in 1971

Duration: 57:49 STEREO TVPG

This program was originally filmed for US TV. The band performed the gig a few months before the release of their album "Sticky Fingers" and used the show to preview nearly half the album, including "Brown Sugar," "Dead Flowers" and "Bitch." It also served as the first and only time the group played "I Got the Blues" live until dusting it off a handful of times for concerts in 1999. For the rest of the 8-song set, the band played 2 songs from its then-most recent release, Let It Bleed ("Live With Me" and "Midnight Rambler"), "Satisfaction" and a cover of Chuck Berry's "Let It Rock."

The gig also marked the last time the band would play the UK for more than 2 years, with its members going into tax exile shortly thereafter. Musicians Bobby Keys (sax), Nicky Hopkins (keyboards) and Ian Stewart (piano) join the Stones for this fabulous time capsule of rock classics.

And we're well on our way to re-living the sixties, fifty years later...  I'm reasonably
certain this will be punctuated by pledge breaks.


Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Concert

Duration: 1:27:31 STEREO TVG

It was 50 years ago, in 1965, when Arlo Guthrie took out the trash following a Thanksgiving
dinner that "couldn't be beat". It started a chain of events including Arlo's arrest for littering,
court appearance, and rejection from military service depicted in his hilarious and iconic song,
Alice's Restaurant. The song (an 18 minute musical monologue) went platinum, spawned a full
length motion picture, and became an American tradition ubiquitously played on hundreds of
radio stations at Thanksgiving.

In this program, Arlo deftly performs the song for the first time in over a decade and receives
a standing ovation from his delighted fans. He also plays other material from the early part
of his career, his hits and two new arrangements of previously unreleased lyrics by his father,
the legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie. It's a heartfelt evening that examines Arlo's life
through his music, which is interlaced with remarkable and often humorous stories.

We saw these, and it just reinforces the feeling that Janis was one of a kind.  I miss her very much.

We've been watching it every night (or at least every night after we've DVR'ed it!) and it's been really good.  As someone who is somewhat knowledgeable about some of this, I find it very real and believable, but it also takes me outside of my comfortable little box, and updates me on things too.
