Riette asked about James Taylor, and he just happens to be coming to town:

Throughout the stormy tossing and turning of American pop since the late
'60s, James Taylor has remained the ballast, keeping the ship upright and
on course. Now, in what has become the highlight of the summer concert
season, James Taylor kicked off his 46-city tour and will perform in
Austin at the Frank Erwin Center on Tuesday, October 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Much of Taylor's repertoire has been captured on his two most recent
albums: James Taylor Live, a 1992 double disc live album and its single
disc version, James Taylor (Best Live), released in 1994. Before these
two great albums, New Moon Shine, his other release in the '90s once
again showed his peerless mastery of unforgettable melodies and wise,
witty lyrics.

New Moon Shine reteams James with producer Don Grolnick and a host of
world-class musicians such as saxophonists Branford Marsalis, Michael
Bredker and Randy and Tony Levin, and James' long-time friend and
colleague Danny Kortchmar, who co-wrote and co-produced two tracks. James
wrote or co-wrote all but two songs. "It took me a long time to write
these," says James. "The way I write is slowly changing to a more studied
craft, rather than a spontaneous springing forth. Songs start quickly but
finishing them up takes a long time."

That deliberation shows in the album's finely-wrought arrangements and
reflective sentiments. "Copperline," the premiere single, was co-written
by James and noted southern author Reynolds Price. The
you-can't-go-home-again theme, underscored by fiddle and dobro, sets the
tone of the album. "Down in the Hole," a disquieting rocker comparing
depression to life under the ground, features a wild doo-wop break, while
a hot horn section punctuates a clever R&B elegy to love lost in "(I've
Got To) Stop Thinking 'Bout That."

"Shed a Little Light" is a beautiful chorale inspired by the Emmy-winning
PBS series, "Eyes On the Prize," which retold the story of the civil
rights movement. Here James celebrates the moments of triumph even though
the ultimate goals of that era are yet to be realized. "Frozen Man" is a
charming and quirky fairytale about a 19th century British mariner lost
at sea near the Arctic Circle. Retrieved from the permafrost, he's thawed
and revived, only to find his world has died out a hundred years before.
"It turns out my own Scottish ancestor, also named James Taylor, was lost
at sea on his way to America," notes Taylor, "though I didn't learn of
that until after I wrote the song."

The album ends with a sublime version of the folk standard, "The Water Is
Wide." Says James, "I used to perform this song when I was a young
folk-singer in New York." Giving New Moon Shine a grace and symmetry, the
song is performed on acoustic instruments including the fiddle and dobro,
ending the album much as it began.

In a way, the same can be said of James Taylor himself. No less an
observer than Sting said not long ago of James, "He's a complete natural
and a complete original immune to fashion." James himself, simply says
"the top of the charts is fine, but it's an odd goal if you're a
musician." Nevertheless, James Taylor is no stranger to the top of the
charts. Since the release of his self-titled debut album in 1969, he has
enjoyed extravagant success with over a dozen albums.

After the release of Never Die Young, in 1988, Taylor embarked on a
triumphant tour of American and saw a taped full-length concert
performance become one of the most popular specials run on PBS that
winter. As much as he's known for his recordings, James has been a
perennially popular live entertainer. "You have to perform in real time
with real musicians," he notes. "Of course some, cantelever twenty years
beyond their time, standing there like waxed fruit. But with others like
Ray Charles, the thrill ain't gone."

The same is true of James Taylor, who continually inspires new
generations of fans with his concerts and albums. There aren't that many
standards of quality left these days, but James Taylor surely exemplifies
the highest of them, and 30 years of success proves it.

Tickets for James Taylor at the Frank Erwin Center on Tuesday, October 1

That sounds just absolutely brilliant. Would have loved to have gone. Not least because of that menu!!

But the only concert I'm going to is 'Modern Talking' - big trip down teeny memory lane, that is. Sonja is ready to scratch my eyes out with jealousy, so I promised I'd be really obnoxious, push my way to the very front and fill up as many films as I can withing the space of two hours. Still wondering if I should throw underwear at them....

If ever a group called, Modern Talking should visit you over there, GO. Don't know if they ever became famous in America, but they're a cult over here. Their music is crap, their lyrics are crap, but their concerts are a BLAST!!!! I went last night, and had a fantastic time. These two guys have the most wonderful stage personalities, are mega handsome, and the concert was one HUGE party, and live, their music is hypnotic - they sing VERY well live. My sister and I used to be big fans at teenies, then
they split up, and just got back together again beginning of this year. I WISH Sonja had been here to see it! Even Chris had a good time, and he usually growls when I drag him to pop concerts.

Well, all their songs have exactly the same deep, heavy beat, which makes it hypnotic after a while. And although their tunes and lyrics all sound roughly the same, they're really fun and full of energy. But I think their secret lies in their charisma. They are the two most down to earth, relaxed singers I've ever seen live, and therefore the crowd is relaxed as well, and the whole thing just turns into a big, big party. Wait, I'll see if I can post a picture of them - they're mega sexy!

Oh, but if you knew Prinzenbar... In the midst of St. Pauli, Hamburgs infamous entertainment district, it used to be a red-light affair with lots of decadent stucco baby angels (putti ?) and mirrors. Superstar had an evening there, when the mag did the tour in '97, and it's a great location. Sure fitting to kick the tour off there!
(As I leave for Hamburg tomorrow, maybe I even go there! Other offers: Alter Schilleroper, Mutter, Meanie Bar)

I'm afraid it was only called the Star Club.
But at least they didn't call it the Superstar Club.
I opened there for the Beatles just a few times, 10 or 12, I'd say.
Since I was the warm-up band, I would bring out 4 steam heaters
and play them.
They made wonderful sounds, which could be somewhat orchestrated with a
spray hose.
All the Beatles, even George and John and Paul and Ringo, loved my band of steam heaters.
Can't say as I blame 'em.
Actually that's all I have to report at this time.

They adopted me as their pet hamster.
Then I escaped the cage they put me in, even though it had lotsa fun
things inside it to play with like fake lettuce and this circular ladder
that I'd run on its rungs and make it spin and stuff,
but like I say, I squirmed and wriggled outta that cage one dark and
storied night and I ran away and got married....to boredom and lived the
rest of my life accordingly.
Can't say as I blame me.
Actually that's all I have to report at this time.

There was Widespread Panic at the Backyard last night.

It's an outdoor venue out on Bee Caves Road.

Shades of the Grateful dead. Long rambling songs that merged together.

7,000 retro looking people were jammed in to the place according to Debra (kb5sfl) and Mark, my amateur radio buddies who saw it.

They called them a "jam band", Mark had never heard of that before.

String Cheese Incident were also very good, according to Mark and Debra. They played at a different venue.

Hi Paul
I did not know where to put this but seeing that G W BUSH had
a bit to do with Texas < lol >I put it here

Genealogists discover President's royal connections

By Ananova

Prince William and George W Bush are 17th cousins, according to genealogists.

The heir to the throne and the US President can trace a common ancestry back to 15th century Northamptonshire squire Henry Spencer.

His younger son William founded the line that eventually produced wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill and Diana, Princess of Wales.

Descendants of Henry Spencer's older son, John, included Anne Marbury, who moved from Lincolnshire to Massachusetts during the 1600s.

She was later banished for religious reasons and killed by native Americans but a direct descendent of hers, Harriet Fay, married James Bush, the great-great grandfather of the President.

Mr Bush is a great admirer of Sir Winston and keeps a bust of the former Prime Minister on his desk at the White House.

The link between the families was made by researchers at US genealogy company MyFamily.com, which is collaborating with the Public Record Office in London on publishing census returns for England and Wales from 1841 to 1901 on-line.

Details of Mr Bush's royal connections will be made available on-line.

A spokeswoman for MyFamily.com says the discovery about the President's connections to the royals was only made recently, and research is continuing to find out more about Henry Spencer, who lived in Badby between 1420 and 1478.

What on earth does this have to do with music? Or concerts?

You could have created your own topic, preferably in another conference.

If you read the first part you might understand why I put
it here, you see I am a bit dumb, did you go to my School?

Actually, there's a Bush topic or two in the politics conference. Maybe you could transplant it there or allow me to, trying to quench the flames here a bit!

"If you read the first part you might understand why I put

So I look at the beginning of the post and read:

"Hi Paul
I did not know where to put this but seeing that G W BUSH had
a bit to do with Texas < lol >I put it here" - Joe

Right. The topic is titled: "concerts, gigs and events in Austin and other parts of earth", and this entry has nothing to do with concerts, gigs, or Austin. It seems that when Joe says he is a bit dumb he exhibits the pinnacle of the art of understatement.

Joe's ok, Sam. He's a friend.

I'm going to copy and paste Joe's comments in to the GW Bush topic in politics, can we put this behind us and continue the discussion there?

Joe's Shrub comments have been transplanted to politics topic 21 on the
George Bush presidency.

the pinnacle is pretty good, though...
probably honed the skill at that school he and sam went to
(what was sam like in those days, joe? bet he was kind of a brawler)

to deny one's past is neither logical nor constructive (it can lead to
all kinds of unhealthy behaviors, disorders, etc...)...

joe seemed to be reaching out to you, sam...
whatever may've happened all those years ago- i dunno, maybe you used
to take his lunch money or something, it really doesn't matter- he seems
willing to put it all behind, in the spirit of comradeship, or whatever...
shouldn't you really do the same?

(after all, he ain't heavy-
he's you're brother, right?)

Considering that this is obviously the first time I am visiting the Spring in four months, and that Nick is either unwilling or incapable of seeing the obvious, I will leave him to his ignorance.

Willies picnic is tomorrow. Neil Young. And then on the 5th there will
be an appearance by the Dead. Tickets are kinda pricey though.

Upcoming events in Austin, Texas include the Austin History Center
reading on June 24 at 7 PM. I'll be reading and doing a Q&A. That's the
neat old art decoish building next door to the central, or John Henry
Faulk Library. On July 16, my new wave supergroup, Class of 78, will
play the Hole in the Wall. It will be my first gig at the Hole, believe
it or not.

On Sunday July 18, I'll be at Barnes & Noble Arboretum, since the last
gig there was all but rained out. We had a handful of hardy souls,
which was a nice testament, but the store was sure we could draw a big
crowd next time so they gave me another date.
