Crosby Stills Nash & Young and a song about Bradley Manning

Greatness from almost 40 years ago...

Crosby Stills Nash & Young - Almost Cut My Hair (Live - 1974)

A song that Crosby Stills Nash performs on the road these days is one Graham Nash and James Raymond recently wrote in support of Government Whistleblower Bradley Manning. It's one of the most important songs in this time of so many wars disguised as fake benevolence.

Trixie Whitley - Breathe You In My Dreams

Early in December, I saw Trixie Whitley at The Satellite in Silverlake California. The show was amazing. She's a great minimalist, who lacks the desire for pomp & circumstance, opting for authenticism that runs deep in her cells. Trixie delivered up music with her sensitive grace and style, with soul so deep.

She thanked the audience several times and meant it, for one could hear a pin drop as the venue fell silent between songs. Quite rare in LA, as all eyes were on Trixie and her every move and word. Near the end, Daniel Lanois stepped in to play along.  It was one of the most memorable intimate shows of 2012.

This song below by Trixie is so excellent, it stayed on repeat for too many plays to count. It seems to have some ethereal commentary attached when heard with the video by Anton Coene, which is a nice work of photographic art that seems to touch on the obscure and controversial subject of "chemtrails". Most importantly, Trixie's got soul so deep. Enjoy! Peace Love Groove, GC

Hymne des Fraternises - Joyeux Noel

Inspired by a true story on Christmas Eve in 1914 during World War I. Front-line soldiers peacefully met each other in No Man's Land to share a precious pause in the carnage with a fleeting brotherhood. This film dramatizes one such section as the French, Scottish and German sides partake in the unique event, even though they are aware that their superiors will not tolerate it's occurrence.



Connect direct with the film's official website at JoyeuxNoel-leFilm.Com/site_vo.htm

"I hear the mountain birds
The sound of rivers singing
A song I've often heard
It flows through me now
So clear and so loud
I stand where I am
And forever I'm dreaming of home
I feel so alone, I'm dreaming of home

It's carried in the air
The breeze of early morning
I see the land so fair
My heart opens wide
There's sadness inside
I stand where I am
And forever I'm dreaming of home
I feel so alone, I'm dreaming of home

This is no foreign sky
I see no foreign light
But far away am I
From some peaceful land
I'm longing to stand
A hand in my hand
...forever I'm dreaming of home
I feel so alone, I'm dreaming of home"

Cool videos to AWOLNATION's now classic song titled Sail

The strong legs of The LA based electronic rock band AWOLNATION's song titled Sail have amazed me. The music and the band has continuously grown it's audience at least partially due to the third party, fan made videos.

Long before ever viewing the official video to Sail by AWOLNATION. I saw the short film "Grinding The Crack" by the flying man known as Jeb Corliss. And no, Grinding The Crack is not pornography. In Corliss' films, he jumps off a cliffs and out of planes to fly through the sky. In Grinding the Crack, he flies through a crack in a mountain top. He can fly and land like Rocky in Rocky & Bullwinkle. Whilst Jeb Corliss' now classic video is my favorite one using the song Sail, other fan made videos are pretty darned cool too, and so is the official band produced video. Enjoy! Peace Love Groove, GC

One of the Greatest Records of All Time

MusicLoad.Com presents Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Deja Vu

Together or apart, David Crosby, Steven Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young have that "it" thing. Anyone who grew up in the 1970's and remembers having the CSNY's 1970 release Déjà vu on vinyl might say this is one of the greatest records of all time.

As human beings and citizens, all members in CSNY are exemplary in their support of good causes and pursuit of peace, love truth and justice. Graham Nash especially comes to mind with his tireless efforts to support Bradley/Chelsea Manning.

Almost Gone - The Ballad of Bradley Manning - By Graham Nash & James Raymond

"Almost Gone" is a very important song. Supporting Bradley Manning means supporting bringing out the truth about atrocities carried out by the U.S. government and military industrial war machine. Also known as the Ballad of Bradley Manning it is one of the most important pro peace or anti-war songs released in 2011/2012 so far. Peace can be achieved through truth. GC

Connect direct with Graham Nash at GrahamNash.Com

Below is the story about the song and the video and Bradley Manning


A companion video for "Almost Gone" -- a new song by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash and musician James Raymond (son of David Crosby) -- was released in December 2011 in support of accused U.S. Army whistleblower Bradley Manning.

The release was timed to Manning's first judicial hearing scheduled for December 16th 2011, the day before Bradley Mannings 24th birthday, following his more than 17-months in custody, including a year in solitary confinement that Amnesty International has characterized as "harsh and punitive."

Visually, the Almost Gone video is punctuated with bold graphics, disturbing images and harsh facts. The Bradley Manning Support Network has named the following day, December 17, its International Day of Solidarity (http://events.bradleymanning.org/). PFC Manning, an Army intelligence analyst who had been stationed near Baghdad, was arrested in May 2010 under suspicion of leaking classified information, including a video showing the killing of civilians, to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

Nash and Raymond composed the song "Almost Gone (The Ballad of Bradley Manning)" during this spring's US tour of Crosby-Nash, and the new recording serves as the music bed for the video; it features an impassioned lead vocal by Nash, a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted (Crosby, Stills & Nash, and The Hollies). "Bradley Manning is a hero to me," he sings, acknowledging Manning's role in making public videos and documents that shed light on such as issues as the true number and cause of civilian casualties in Iraq, human rights abuses by U.S.-funded contractors and foreign militaries, and the role that spying and bribes play in international diplomacy.

This is one of the most important recent songs which stands up against the police state and the military industrial complex.

This Ballad of Bradley Manning is one of the most important pro peace or anti-war songs released in 2011/2012 so far. Think. Resist war and the police state without violence, through things like songs that point out the hypocrisy of the government and embarrasses them into ending this mess. It's a intellectual revolution, not a physically violent one. GC

Brandy is Back :)

MusicLoad presents Brandy

As one of Brandy's biggest fans forever, songs from her first records are something I can still spin for hours and hours and never get tired of listening.

Her latest record has grown on me. I played Wildest Dreams for more than an hour on repeat. It felt stiff at first listen. But something made me want to play it again and again and by the fifth and sixth spin, I got it. I feel her pain and hear how she's evolved. This is not young smooth Brandy that I was at first hoping to hear. This is strong Brandy, a little weathered from the storms of life. It feels authentic and it probably really is. Can't help but love her. GC

Kim Churchill - Tides (Aussie Surfer With Soul)

MusicLoad.Com presents Kim Churchill

MusicLoad is proud to present a great take of an original song titled Tides. The song was written and performed live by Kim Churchill on a freezing cold night in Australia. This artist is the real deal. At a young age right out of high school, he figured out music was is calling and has beelined straight for it. He first busked on the streets of Australia, lived out of the back of a van and traveled to play as many shows as possible, and is now set on traveling the world. A U.S. and Canadian tour is imminent and the world is next. This is definitely one artist of substance to keep an eye on. GC

The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows

"Tomorrow Never Knows" is the final track of The Beatles' 1966 studio album Revolver. It is credited as a Lennon/McCartney song, but was written primarily by John Lennon. Although it was the first song that was recorded, it was the last track on the album.



The song is significant because it contains the first example of a vocal being put through a Leslie speaker cabinet to obtain a vibrato effect (which was normally used as a loudspeaker for a Hammond organ) and the use of an ADT system (Automatic double-tracking) to double the vocal image.

"Tomorrow Never Knows" ends the Revolver album in a more experimental fashion than earlier records, which contributed to Revolver's reputation as one of the group's most influential and expressive albums.

LYRICS:
Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream
It is not dying, it is not dying
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void
It is shining, it is shining
That you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being

That love is all, that love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing
That ignorance and hate may moum the dead
It is believing, it is believing
But listen to the color of your dream
It is not living, it is not living
Or play the game existance to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning,
Of the beginning, of the beginning,
Of the beginning, of the beginning,
of the beginning...

Gaby Moreno Wows Largo Audience at Record Release Party & Performance

Just got back from an incredible Gaby Moreno record release party at Largo at The Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles where a capacity crowd was wowed by Gaby and her full band that included 5 violins, a cello, a string bass, electric bass with longtime bandmate Leslie Lowe, a trombonist woman who gave the music loads of character, a tenor sax man, two different pianists that included the fantastic Van Dyke Parks, a mandolin player at times, a backing/lead guitarist who shaped so much of the sound on many of the nights performances, a drummer (a very tasty one who happens to be Gaby's significant other, Sebastian Aymanns, a session/touring player also doing Europe with Lisa Marie Presley promoting her most recent record), and two perfect backing vocalists. Tasty is the word that best describes the musicianship and meticulous arrangements throughout the night. There was not one note or nuance that was out of place the entire evening. Even the buzz from the guitar cord and amplifier seemed to have it's own place like pops from a great vinyl record.

Van Dyke Parks, the truly amazing composer, arranger, musician, author and actor, well known for his collaborations and lyrical contributions to the Beach Boys album Smile, but who is so much deeper than even that, gushed over Gaby on several occasions and talked candidly about his desire to work with Gaby for several years. His performance with Gaby was beautiful and inspiring.

The wonderfully organic songs from her most recent all Spanish language album titled POSTALES were all mesmerizing. Gaby shared the stories behind each song as she went, practically bringing me to tears on more than one occasion through the night, such as the story behind a poem from that Gaby's grandfather wrote to her grandmother which was turned into a song by Gaby. Gaby told a story of how her grandfather was 58 and her grandmother was 18 when they married. A 40 year difference! Gaby also performed many of her past songs in both English and Spanish, as well as several standards and classics.

Gaby signed autographs for a very long line of fans for close to two full hours. Perhaps not anticipating the strong demand, all of the boxes of her CD's and posters that were brought to the show sold out early. Whoever said CD's are dead never went to a Gaby Moreno show. Several in the crowd were a bit disappointed when they were unable to buy a CD to have it personally signed. But Gaby took the time to hug each and every fan and took what seemed like a few thousand photos. This girl knows what it means to be a true star, which she most certainly is. GC

Gaby Moreno - Ave que Emigra (from album titled Postales)


While I loved every single song Gaby performed, the one that was the most poignant or important in my mind was The Immigrant, a cover by Calypso artist David Rudder. Especially during this political season, where the political candidates would surely pander to artists like Gaby to use her recording of Rudders song in their campaigns to prove they are immigrant friendly. Gaby knows and exuded the actual meaning of the song and it's importance and place in the American fabric. I'd hope Gaby would flip politicians the bird if they tried to attach their political campaigns to it, but she's far too gracious for that, even if she knew they were pandering. It just so happens that Barack Obama personally follows Gaby Moreno on Twitter. But Gaby's music is embraced by people across every spectrum, political and otherwise. The passion Gaby emitted when she laid The Immigrant down with her full band was inspiring and heartfelt. Bravissimo to Gaby for delivering this song the way she did. She is a great story teller and has proved she can deliver social commentary in a deeply meaningful way.

Gaby also performed one of her songs, Sing Me Life, a passionate anthem that could mean something different to everyone. Makes me think of not backing down from people and the cheap patriotism and jingoism that perpetuates war and government misdeeds. Long ago, when this song was released, it made me sit back, think and stay focused without being influenced by the status quo. This song can be a personal anthem for those seeking reinforcement in staying true and original.

There is one more thing to mention. After one hears this next song, which Gaby performed all by her lonesome which drove into the encore, one may be whistling it in the mind over and over. It was one of the most delightful moments of the evening that always takes me to a place that feels like a scene out of Woody Allen's film Midnight in Paris. The film which came out in 2011 had me thinking of Gaby almost the entire time I watched it debut. Too bad Woody Allen didn't know of Gaby yet, for he most certainly would have put her in the cast.
