To right myself when things feel turbulent and uncertain. How to correct your course and stay true to the things you believe and need and let all the rest go". She continues, "At times, the message the world appeared to want to give me was, as I suspect it is for many women - you are not enough on your own - and yet somewhere in me I thought I might be. I wanted to be an island. To sink or swim on my own, to construct and exist as a singular entity to fail or succeed at my own hand.

On gold vinyl. As massive as that earlier work was, it represented only a tentative first step towards the fields of hodologic splendor that our hero would go on to create.
Death Chants represents a much more fully realized syncretism of the modernist and primitive poles between which Fahey wobbled. It is also the first album he deigned to release entirely under his own name and the one with which he truly began to cast a shadow across the blandly-lit landscape of the world's subconscious. On blue vinyl.
More than half the album's titles draw from the traditional blues and country repertoire Fahey had spent his teen years and young adulthood collecting, listening to, and learning to play, yet the recordings proved once and for all that his interests lay in musical transfigurations rather than preservation - Fahey was not afraid to use these old tunes as raw material.

But before all of that, it was a recording studio set up by New Yorker John Townley. Despite the possibilities opened up by the studio and the chance to treat the desk as an instrument, The Family Of Apostolic is nonetheless a folk record at heart, and sounds downright spare in places. The experimentation was there in subtle ways, per Townley's desire for each song to be "like just a natural happening.
We were trying to get a very close, upfront, live feeling. Singles were released under different artist names, serving only to confuse the public more. Soon the studio was heading down the tubes, thanks in part to Jimi Hendrix's multi-track studio Electric Lady opening two blocks away. And before long, the Apostolic dream was over. The LP is slightly resequenced and has some track substitutions, as well as new artwork and liner notes.

Johnny Cash called me and asked me if I wanted to come live at his place on the lake till the heat blew over, which I did I had been experimenting with multiple guitar tunings and had given myself up lyrically to what a free form jazz sax player experiences when they play their spontaneous solos. I was burned out on the traditional pop lyric art form - thus, the songs on this record, At the House of Cash.
When I finished it, John and June listened to it one night. A few days later he sidled up to me and said in his iconic Johnny Cash voice, "Chris, June and I listened to your record last night and I don't think even the drug people are gonna understand it.

Rudderless, he set about recording solo album Misty Flats, and though few would hear it in its day, he hit on something very special indeed. Where The Batch were a harmony-drenched power pop band in the mold of Big Star and The Rubinoos, Misty Flats was an album of ecstatic desolation, an unhinged loner-folk gem that came from a unique place: "I wanted to make the first punk rock album, and if I'd recorded those songs with a band, maybe that's what it would've been," Goldberg says.

Hey, my birthday is coming up in August!
I was young nineteen and had no idea how things worked in Vegas, but I had my aunt with me who knew the 'ins and outs' and she was the one who got us into the show. It was the first of many Manilow concerts. I had been a fan for years. By some luck - we got to the show 4 hours early with the hopes that we would be able to get good seats as our tickets were not waiting for us when we arrived. I still can't believe it.
We waited in a separate line and the maitre D' said "I have 4 front row seats available. We were there and right up front and personal. I cried through the whole performance and I brought Barry a home made nut roll. Anyway, our tickets did come through the next evening and I had to go back and see him again as I had missed the whole first show by crying!
Being that it was first-come-first-serve seating, I went there at p. I was panicked to find a huge crowd there already! Luckily it turned out that another concert was about to begin Around a. Quite an experience for a pre-teen!!
Barry Manilow is the most wonderful performer and singer! No other concert could compare to this one. We got there really early in the morning. Mid-morning the park officials decided we were there too early and wanted us to leave. The lady who stayed overnight with the pre-teens mentioned earlier to hold their front row seats, called the news stations. After much media attention we were all allowed to stay, but others had to wait until later in the day to enter the park.
The sound crew played Frisbee with us - the concert was great! What thrilled me the most was seeing his limo parked below the railing leaving the seating area and seeing an assortment of his stage shoes sitting in the backseat. The door of the car was open, so of course I took some photos! I remember that so well, Barry's shoes! I will never forget it, especially when he was singing "Weekend in New England" and off in the distance I could see the city lights of Denver with a full moon rising over the city August This was my first concert.
Can't believe I fell in love with the voice and music of Barry at such a young age. The Greek Theater ad in the paper said, "Congratulations, Barry! Your first week sold out four months in advance! We added four more days, and they sold out in 5 hours!
Welcome back to L. My husband finally agreed to getting me there! However, what about my Barry concert?? Well, my husband, true to his word, and in fear of death, got dressed, with suit and tie my preference because of seeing my BARRY and we proceeded.
From then on I've followed him AND encouraged others to do the same by inviting them to his concerts. I really never thought he would make such a difference in my life. I was 16 years old and that summer my parents sold our house and bought a new one I was stuck in the house all summer. As a gift my parents bought me the tickets and my sister went with me.
I will never forget that night because Barry realized that people were actually in the trees behind the seats. My favorate moment was when Barry sang "All The Time. I have gone to other Barry concerts since then but none will mean as much as the first one. I was 16, and it was the first trip to Los Angeles from Orange County for my best friend me.
We sat in the 15th row, left side, and loved when Barry talked to the "tree people. I felt sorry for the people in the row in front of us, because at the beginning and end of every song, we screamed our lungs out, and ended up with laryngitis for the next week! Thank you, Barry, for all of the memories and great shows; you are truly the master showman. He heard us and told us we could have it. I keep dreaming of having that come true!
Love ya, loads, Barry!! I still know all the words, well, my little son had to listen whether he wanted to or not and became a fan. He is 41 now. I just found out my year-old grandson is also a fan and knows many of Barry's most popular songs! We got a wonderful gift at Christmas, tickets to the farewell tour in Dallas, Texas, in February I just think it is so funny to have three generations very excited to be going and we will be singing our hearts out that night.
Thanks Barry! I was going to college in Southwest Kentucky. Two other students and I drove 5-plus hours to see him in concert. He didn't disappoint and never has! I have seen Barry many times since then. Latest was 2nd Row in Vegas! Thank you, Barry, for your songs, the complexity of the melodies, and the wonderful lyrics. You are truly a gifted artist! But Barry made the dampness disappear with the warmth of his music.
Was in the "semi-nosebleed" section, but didn't care! I had great seats I waited in line forever to get them! The only problem was that I had a HUGE nursing exam the next day, so my friend quizzed me on the nursing information before the concert AND during the intermission!View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the CD release of Uptown/Downtown on Discogs/5(4).
