    Classic Rock Video of the Day II

    2/1/19 TPATH Benmont Tench at The Iridium in NYC on 11/8/17. "I'm going to play a song by two of the greatest songwriters who've ever lived. If you're familiar with it, I'm very glad."

    I have no clue how commercially viable Mike Campbell's biography would be, but given his history as a Heartbreaker and all the other projects he has worked on with Dylan, Cash as well as Boys of Summer for Henley, now being part of the Mac not to mention an impressive charity or being the house band for a number of shows I would greedily eat up every page. It really is a wonderful life for him despite losing Tom... Same goes for Benmont too.

    Mike, Ron and the New Guy played last weekend at the Imperial Ball (as well as some knob . Saw this on FB, hope it can be viewed. Mike sounds amazing as usual. Please not the empty mic stand center stage, nearly broke me. Anyone else there? Also Dana Petty posted a similar video on the Mike Campbell FB page! πŸ’˜ You can also see Chinner toward the end. 😎 Anyone make it this year? Wish I was on the left coast...

    Yeah.. you should've perhaps just called it "Pillow Talk"... But please don't feel quilt:y, it's not too bed, is it? Not the travesty of a sham that it could've been, to pad-a-phrase. Some of those renditions of Tom Petty songs really do put me to sleep, though, must say. No snuggly duvets, but some very comfy duets, surely... eh, isn't this just puff, eider way? Alright for now Zzzzz...

    On a serious Cash bender lately. This song is really resonating with me and stumbled across the VH1 live version below just now.... Man in Black was a serious bad ass... Glad Tom is able to ride the river with him again...

    "Echo" from March 13, 1999

    Wow, a lot of intriguing stuff going on here! Shelter, as usual, I must agree on your notion of constructing set lists as a high art form, with Tom "only" making use of one shade of its wide and varied spectrum. That's a pretty good analysis, I think. Quite accurate, actually. I get a bit melancholy about their moving away from the big jangle. They got bluesier, because, I guess, Tom felt the blues more and more the older he got. As a band, they always tried to get closer and closer to the song, playing it without adorning it... playing a song with as little embellishment as you can with a six piece band. Hence, maybe, their getting "heavier". Tom's inclination towards the blues will have influcenced his songwriting as well. And with Stan, I don't know if they could have gotten to where they were in the end with him. He probably was too loose, too swinging and freewheeling in his drumming for that kind of approach. He didn't have any fun playing on ITGWO, and that was clearly the direction Tom wanted the drums to take.

    1/28/19 Jackie DeShannon with Jimmy Page on guitar Recording under various names such as Sherry Lee, Jackie Dee, and Jackie Shannon, she had little success. However, her interpretations of country songs "Buddy" and "Trouble" gained the attention of Eddie Cochran who arranged for her to travel to California and meet singer-songwriter Sharon Sheeley, who formed a writing partnership with DeShannon in 1960. The partnership produced hits such as "Dum Dum" for Brenda Lee and "I Love Anastasia" for The Fleetwoods. The latter was named after one of her good friends in high school. In 1960, DeShannon signed with Liberty Records. She made the WLS Chicago survey with "Lonely Girl" in late 1960. A string of mostly flop singles followed, although "The Prince" bubbled under at #108 in the United States in early 1962, and "Faded Love" became her first U.S. Billboard top 100 hit, just squeaking in at #97 in February 1963.[3] She broke through a little more solidly singing "Needles and Pins" and "When You Walk in the Room" later in 1963. Both reached the lower rungs of the U.S. pop charts, but were substantial top 40 hits in Canada, where "Needles and Pins" made it all the way to #1. "Needles and Pins" and "When You Walk in the Room" later became U.S. and UK hits for The Searchers. DeShannon recorded many other singles that encompassed teen pop, country ballads, rockabilly, gospel, and Ray Charles-style soul that didn't fare as well on the charts. During these years it was her songwriting and public profile rather than her recording career that kept her contracted to Liberty Records. DeShannon dated Elvis Presley and formed friendships with The Everly Brothers and Ricky Nelson. She also co-starred and sang with Bobby Vinton in the teen surf movie Surf Party. DeShannon's biggest break came in February 1964, when she supported The Beatles on their first U.S. tour, and formed a touring band with guitarist Ry Cooder. DeShannon also wrote "Don't Doubt Yourself Babe" for debut album by The Byrds. Her music at this stage was heavily influenced by the American West Coast sounds and folk music. Staying briefly in England in 1965, DeShannon formed a songwriting partnership with Jimmy Page, which resulted in the hit singles "Dream Boy" and "Don't Turn Your Back on Me". Page and DeShannon also wrote material for singer Marianne Faithfull, including her Top Ten UK and U.S. hit "Come and Stay With Me". DeShannon also appeared on the television show Ready Steady Go! [edit]Hit love songs Moving to New York, DeShannon co-wrote with Randy Newman, producing such songs as "She Don't Understand Him" and "Did He Call Today Mama?", as well as writing "You Have No Choice" for Delaney Bramlett. In March 1965, DeShannon recorded Burt Bacharach and Hal David's "What the World Needs Now Is Love," which led to club tours and regular appearances on television and went to #7 on the U.S. charts and #1 in Canada. (DeShannon's recording of the song was subsequently used in the 1969 film Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice.) She appeared in the 1967 film C'mon Let's Live a Little, with Bobby Vee, as a folk singer. DeShannon continued writing and recording but it was not until 1969 that she scored her next biggest smash single and album, both entitled "Put a Little Love in Your Heart". The single sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.[4] The single "Love Will Find A Way" from the same album was also a moderate hit. Switching to Atlantic Records in 1970 and moving to Los Angeles, DeShannon recorded the critically acclaimed albums Jackie and Your Baby Is A Lady, but they failed to produce the same commercial success as previous releases. In 1973, she was invited by Van Morrison to sing on his Hard Nose the Highway album.

    1. Yes, it wouldn't let me post the specific VH1 video on here either. I too was getting a "forbidden" message....I figured you might be able to recognize which one I was referring to from the link I was allowed to post... Yep, I knew that. Still, I think it was quite random to put it on the LA box set....seeing how it was a doc from just one of the many tours through the years. That being said, that was basically the main the reason I purchased the Live Anthology, was to get that!! I wish someone would've had the foresight to realize that it would be an awesome and appropriate inclusion to put on some future Wildflowers Anniversary set/reissue/collection...it just makes sense, doesn't it? An unreleased shelf doc from the WF era...
