    in memory of Lou Reed (March 2, 1942 - October 27, 2013)

    February 3, 2012 - Considering his recent collaboration, it was sort of surprising to see Lou Reed’s take on Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come” was straightforward and melodic. The performance took place Sept. 15, 2011 at the Highline Ballroom in New York.

    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Tonight we went to see Gary Clark Jr. perform at the Apollo here in New York. It was a great show. If you ever have the opportunity to see him live,.do it.

    Little about the lyrics/poem in the last video,......

    The lyrics are under copyright but have been republished in full in an academic journal, with permission. In the poem, Meeropol expressed his horror at lynching's. He had seen Lawrence Beitler's photograph of the 1930 lynching of Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith in Marion, Indiana. He published the poem under the title "Bitter Fruit" in 1937 in The New York Teacher, a union magazine. Though Meeropol had often asked others (notably Earl Robinson) to set his poems to music, he set "Strange Fruit" to music himself and the piece gained a certain success as a protest song in and around New York. Meeropol, his wife, and black vocalist Laura Duncan performed it at Madison Square Garden.

    Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
    Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
    Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
    Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

    Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
    The big bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
    Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
    Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

    Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck,
    For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
    For the sun to rot, for the leafs to drop,
    Here is a strange and bitter crop.

    The picture that moved Meeropol to write the poem: http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/albums/u...ange_Fruit.jpg

    Last Friday they listed the nominees for the 56th Grammy’s. Best Blues album are listed below.


    I’m going with, Get Up! Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite. However, Cotton Mouth Man and Seesaw will be hard to beat.


    should be Izabella
