what can I say?

I was already pleased to hear that Anne was coming to Diest, a nothing-at-all-important small town in Belgium at 5 km's from my home.
As I already wrote before, the location is a small outdoor auditorium in the middle of a small parc. Unique and cosy.

I went well before time with in my hands a bunch of viny covers.... you never know what could happen...

We arrived at 8PM with 'mini-gate' opening at 9PM and the concert starting around 10PM

Right at our arrival we spotted Anne sitting beside her camper giving an interview.... my knees started shaking....

after the interview she disappeared backstage but I had time on my side so I waited and when she returned I dared to ask 'Anne, do you have a moment?'

She did, 15' long, we had a nice talk about our pets, music, work and her career...she also signed my collection of vinyl covers!

to make the whole experience better the show was also great, all songs in new uptempo beats...the small crowd enjoyed it!

after the show there was a small 'shop' where the fans could buy stuff and I managed to enlarge my collection a bit further.... a couple of minutes later she came to that shop and signed the goodies, she also was willing to pose for some pictures!

so now you understand why I'm floating on a pink cloud at the moment...I'm a fan for over 20 years now so a night like yesterday...well...you know

update: bought tickets for her gig in Gent @ November 18th (http://www.new-wave-classix.be/events/view/141)

here are some pics I & the misses took (not professional but still some good shots)










and a small amateur video:

Anne Clark is one of *the* gigs!

Anyway, also had my music night last night:

SYtartiong out iwth Elton John and Andrea Bocelli in Palma (25000 spectators, a real blast despite not being my music), and then later our village festival with all the well known gentlemen of this Music Genious Village that I mentioned before in this thread, from Molly Duncan over Pete Frampton to Bombolo.

One extra were Big&Rich, three of the guys joined the crowd live here )they have taken residenca a few month ago), and they had the Spanish dance orchestra perform some of their classics with them, with the help of Jeff singing (stby 25 secs into the vid to hear the song, rest is INTRODUCTION):

Horses - Save a Horse (ride a cowboy) (External Embedding Disabled)

Anyway, at 0700 the Guardi Civil finally stopped the music and we all had a coffe and went home, big fun overall!

The sound of my youth (listening under the covers at night, my father did not like "negro music", so it got banned from home in the open), but this man, long dead now (and severly missed by my generation),  really showed me (on AFN Frankfurt) how to present music, a dream for me ever since.

He did what he liked, no matter what the producers said, played music that was either well known and liked, or hated, just as he thought fit, took it all in and spit it out, and then all with this special voice of his: You could not grab one song of the hit parade, as he was constantly taliking/singing along, hilarious interviews over the phone, but a deep (the deepest!) dedication to music, new, old and revolutionary...

He is the real reason I became a music freak...  Cool

Here´s to you, Wolfman (there will never be another one!)!  Godspeed to you, wherever you now are wrapping it up!

Wolfman Jack Tribute


Wolfman Jack On KRLA


Part 2 Wolfman Jack radio show


The best of his choices, that had me listen to Jazz and Funk first time in my young life, was this kind of shows:

What a memory jogger.
My first exposure to the Wolfman came during my early USMC training at Camp Pendleton, Ca (between LA & San Diego) in 1968. He soon grew to be a favorite of many young Marines preparing for deployment to WESTPAC (Vietnam). Though he had been around for many years before my discovery, his signal wasnt strong enough to reach us in Northern California.

And, checking out the midnight specials triggered by my Wolfman search, stumbled over this one, also long forgotten, probably a fairly rare piece by them:

kiss midnight special #2


Incredible the dresses !! they wore, also a better guitar than I had associated in memory with their name.

Enjoy

R.I.P

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Edwards_%28musician%29
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-11195393

Electric Light Orchestra - Roll Over Beethoven


Quote
An early member of 1970s British rock group ELO was killed in a "freak" accident when his van was crushed by a bale of hay, police said.

Cellist Mike Edwards, 62, died instantly in the accident on the A381 in Halwell, Devon, on Friday.

Police believe the 600kg bale fell from a tractor on nearby farmland before rolling on to the road.

Mr Edwards was identified using photos and YouTube footage. He was with the Birmingham band from 1972 to 1975.

The musician, who lived in Totnes, was a founder member of the classical Devon Baroque orchestra.
Friend 'devastated'

"He was simply the nicest guy and a brilliant musician," Angus Gordon, the chairman of Devon Baroque, told BBC News.

"He was capable of turning his hand to any type of music at all.

"He taught the cello and his incredible patience and encouragement - even with the slowest of students - made him a very good teacher.

"I'm devastated. He was a really likeable person and such good fun that I keep thinking this has been a horrible mistake."

Mr Edwards was due to play with the medieval folk band Daughters of Elvin in Totnes on Saturday evening.

Officers believe he swerved into another vehicle as his van was struck by the bale at about 1230 BST.

The other driver was not hurt.

Initially police had difficulty in tracking down Mr Edwards' relatives but a spokesman said officers had now traced his brother David in Yorkshire.
'Crowd favourite'

The Health and Safety Executive is investigating what has been described as a "farm accident".

Insp Andy Hamilton, of Devon and Cornwall police, said: "Although it would appear to be a freak incident, we've got to thoroughly investigate the circumstances before we can draw any conclusions."

ELO was formed as the Electric Light Orchestra in 1971 by Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood.

The band, who played rock and pop music with classical overtones, sold more than 50 million records worldwide and had numerous hit singles and albums in the UK and the US.

Mr Edwards, who trained at the Royal Academy of Music, was in the line-up for ELO's first live concert.

A tribute on the Face the Music website said: "Mike quickly became a crowd favourite with his exploding cello and rather unique solo party piece that involved playing the cello with a grapefruit."

Talking about his time with ELO in a rare interview last year, Mr Edwards said the stunts were simply a way to make the band "more entertaining".

Mr Edwards' friend and Devon Baroque colleague Jasper Solomon, who also lives in Totnes, said: "Mike's talent was his musicality.

"He could range over all genres from classical to jazz, modern to medieval renaissance.

"He lived for his music and it showed."

Too much "Uhhhh!" for me... Smiley Not my kind of dance music, I would not know where to put my GT and my cigar... Smiley

Take this then, not dance but dancable ballads, and my ballad pop revelation of 2010 (which means I discovered them this year, they have been around since the 90s apparently, but I never even had a hunch of a blip on my musical radar), great lyrics to inventive music, best of their genre atm methinks:

Tiromanchino (ok, they are Italians and even sound like... so what?)

Tiromancino - Amore Impossibile


This one, almost Anne Clark style, just more modern, and rocky...:
È Necessario - Tiromancino


TIROMANCINO - Della stessa materia dei sogni

Still, as far as dance goes, I prefer the all time funky and groovy classics (they have the advantage that, when played slower, they also make great bkgnd muzac for a dinner or such, as can be seen in the difference of the 2nd to the first version here):

GT/Cigar Dance Version
Bill Withers - Use me


Romantic Dinner version:
Bill Withers - use me


Enjoy,
