As I stock at work, I have a radio hanging in my forklift. This afternoon on NPR they mentioned a website called You Tube.com. The reviewer said he had spent countless hours there since he found it watching footage of his favorite bands, and that all you had to do was go there and type in the name you were interested in. You don't get to download and keep it, only watch, and there are no fees because it's all public domain; if anyone claims a copyright, the footage is immediately removed.
The reviewer said his favorite so far was T-Rex "Get It On" with a very young Elton John on keyboards (so young he still has his own hair was the rest of the comment).
Of course, I had to come home and try it; typing in Joni Mitchell
Then as I watched my eyes misted...my throat choked up...and I smiled! As I tried preview to make sure I had learned STB's lesson properly, it happened again, but this time a tear or two flowed as well. I don't know what it is about Joni, but she touches me every time...
The next one I tried is here if you are curious...
(Just what I needed, another place to spend time!)
The other cool thing I've found in the last few days was courtesy of Yahoo and a story about "The Fillmore". The website is called Wolfgang's Vault and if you click Vault Radio you get the session recordings, live from the Fillmore and Bill (given name Wolfgang) Graham's personal archive! Of course there are lots of things for sale as well...as I write this Chicago is playing live, from 1968...and as I close it just became Delaney and Bonnie from my birthday, December 29, 1970 with Eric Clapton!
It's like a dream!
Thank you STB for making this possible!
