Magazine ad I came across touting one of those new, trendy “fitness” drinks states – “An overly caffeinated world deserves a sensibly caffeinated water”. I totally agree, Here, have a glass of tap water. 0 mg caffeine!
In other news, I deactivated my facebook account. Did you miss me? That’s what I thought.
Three CDs acquired today –
1. ‘The Rebirth Of Cool’ (Volume 1 – a deeper shade of…blues) I already owned Vol. 2,3,4. Good stuff.
2. ‘I Am The Resurrection: A Tribute To John Fahey’. If you aren’t familiar with Fahey’s(1939-2001) work, he comes highly recommended. Not just by me. This 2006 tribute release might be a good place to start.
3. ‘Santana’ (their first album) I’ve owned the vinyl for decades, taping it for vehicle trips back in the days of cassettes but other than a more recent greatest hits collection didn’t have anything digital to carry with me. Taking up one side of that C-90 cassette I discovered it became one album I enjoyed hearing from start to finish. Repeatedly. I’ve posted here previously how I thought Santana’s performance of ‘Soul Sacrifice’ at Woodstock caught on film for the movie was the most exciting piece of concert footage I’ve experienced, and this 1998 re-release includes that version of ‘Soul Sacrifice’ plus two other songs performed August 16, 1969. Bliss.
