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

This is one of the most important recent songs which stands up against the police state and the military industrial complex. Supporting Bradley Manning means supporting bringing out the truth about atrocities carried out by the U.S. government and military industrial war machine. 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

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.

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...
