Kenne at Large
"saturday ides of July watched on youtube Prudence and The Pill., released 23 may 68 ("Lady madonna", released ides of March 68 musta been burnin' up them Rochester NY charts). As I remember, this was a '60s movie about "The Pill"; VERY british with David Niven as a very uptight "no sex we're british" type of bloke; someone switches the Pill for Asprin and all of a sudden we singing DMZ's "gaga ga goo boom"! British humour, that's 87 per cent of my DNA; DO watch it "In the Time of our lives"(Iron Butterfly man...(release 14 June 68....was "in a gadda da vida" this movie with the sound down and get stewned,mun and lissen to Ron Boucher/ Bushy's drum solo man"...

"saturday ides of July 2023. I m becoming ADDICTED to "The Immortals' on Zuma radio 740 AM toronto canada 430-6 pm -and the never-ending Gordon Lighfoot saga. Guess he did a 1986 album (year Willie Loco and Robert E. Bear (RIP) recorded with Hopelessly Obscure) that didnt sell much though he was "sour and mean" (I think when drinkin' but at that 1986 point in life was healthy and happy. side note: love the dj saying 'aboot" like Dad's half-canadian mother (my seventh cuzzin AND eight cuzzins to Justine Covault (RIP) great-grandfather Covault, Connecticut yankee-isms)".....

Nilsson's "i guess the lord must be in new york city", follow-up to "everybody's talkin""...a september 1969 release and FROM that magical tyme....the previous month was Woodstock but maybe the next month (October) at Lift Bridge Book Shoppe, Brockport NY I bought On the Road by miss Lyn's cuzzin jack keroauc, which WAS on the top of my shelf till i gave it to Stenson Eddie Flowers circa first gizmos e.p. (March 76). And I DID live that hitchhiking/odd job lifestyle pre-marines (then I travelled on YOUR tax dollars!) but, sadly, unlike Saint mach Bell, i did NOT join the circus!

"saturday 22 July 2023. last night was an excellent mad painter practice and Gee Julie posted on my wall, us doing uriah heep's "July Morning". "MY Head's in '73" as I told Schmel herbie Hind how we used to party at "jailbait janet"'s and her brother would play Uriah Heep Live as we "lit up", so "July Morning" and "Stealin'" brings back them tymes. Alex Gitlin, keyboard/vocals, did an interview with Metronome re: mad painter and Butterscott Jon, record collector that he is!, got a FREE copy at Stereo jack's, so DO shoppe there! Gee Julie and i had been by the ole ce-ment pond after work and before practice so we walk up and Sharon Crumrine were doing DOUBLE keyboards! A regular ferrante and teicher it was! (Ma's albums).
