The song that has launched innumerable #phototunes. Or so it seems to me; I’ve lost count of the times I’ve shared versions this song with a (hopefully) apropos photograph. Some #phototunes are better than others, and some songs require multiple tries… .
In this case, I present you with a gift #phototune presented by Greg Kerr and based on my submission for “road” in the last photo Scavenger Hunt. Thanks for the connection and youtube link to this version, Greg.
Because something has to hold up the third leg of Brian’s rotating tripod, lol
Music is intrinsic, beginning with the call of stars, susurrations of the waking world, lullabies, songs of my sisters, heard compositions, collected works, playing on FM… fun times volunteering on NPR… old djs never die, they just segue…
Tonight’s randomicity — random CD shelves, random shelves, positions and (semi- random) cuts on same, from my collection; five ’cause that’s what the old school player driving the soundstage upstairs does:
Pure 80’s : Stray Cats: “Rock This Town”
Eric Clapton : Unplugged : “Running on Faith”
The Smithereens : 11 : “A Girl Like You”
B.B. King : Why I Sing The Blues : Chains and Things (Carole King on Piano)
Last but not least, SRV with Kings B.B. and Albert as well as Mr. Paul Butterfield : The Sky is Crying from the album of the same name
n.b. some liberties taken in translating my collection via YouTube… I’ll generally find a live version if I can, even if it isn’t the exact CD version (which, as often as not and perhaps more so) is not available. Almost enough to get me to publish exported FLACs, but then, they’d have no more than #phototunes at best so I haven’t.
I loved Peter Gabriel’s work with Genesis, but think and feel that he really came into his own as a solo artist. Here is his Secret World concert (1:42:09) performed/recorded 16-17 November 1993 at Palasport Nuovo in Modena, Italy. He was and is none to shabby in finding people to collaborate and play with, either. The musicians featured in this concert:
Peter Gabriel — lead vocals, keyboards, harmonica (“Kiss That Frog”)
Tony Levin – bass, Chapman stick, backing vocals
David Rhodes – guitar, backing vocals
Manu Katche – drums, backing vocals
Jean-Claude Naimro – keyboards, backing vocals
Shankar – violin, backing vocals
Levon Minassian – doudouk (“Blood of Eden”)
Paula Cole – backing vocals, co-lead vocals (“Shaking the Tree” and “Don’t Give Up”)
special guests were Papa Wemba and Molokai

Dratted YouTube/Alphabet wants to monetise everything, so there are ads between the songs. They’ll never apologise, so I will on their behalf.
Pablo (Pau) Casals, interpreting J.S. Bach in Abbaye Saint-Michel de Cuxa, France, 1954
Bach Cello Solo Nr.1, BWV 1007
I remember playing the original LP (or an EMI copy thereof) long ago on the radio. As the YouTube publisher states, those versions are superior to this recording. But hey, this is apparently the first video of Casals’ performance. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve passed it on here on the Internet; it is a long-time favorite.
