Ahh..such trouble life, a trouble soul and yet….there is something new each time I listen to Marvin’s music. It’s been a hunt for this one at the end of the day but….it’s been a pretty Soul sounds packed weekend. I had the Craig Charles Funky Souly Show on in the morning, out for Java Fix and we heard Otis…and then back home for more later in day while doing the chores. Music moves the world around just a little bit better….and then ended this fine last Sunday of Summer with a gem of a soundtrack by Marvin. So it meets the Sunday Got Soundtrack brief from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner. Peace, love and nesslerode pie, y’all!
There’s the famous Hi Rhythm Section churning away here, the straight up gritty truth of Mr. Clay’s vocals all mixed together with superb production. So I’ve been listening to a lot of Otis Clay’s take on Southern Soul sounds tonight……making this the Saturday Got Soul selection from the Flimwell Papers Music Corner was easy as enjoying Aunt Effie’s Nestlerode Pie!
Music works, it’s my therapy and my solace! I got a letter for the daughter of a dear friend who passed away at the too young age of 63. I had sent her an old fashioned letter of gratitude for a life well lived and one that I knew well in younger days but had lost touch with over the years…then by a fluke of the internet we made contact again on FB. We spent JD’s last days on the Big Blue Marble in shared jokes, some old war stories and sports field battles won and some lost….I also told him of my mother’s last days and how I’d been with her and now I wasn’t frightened of the last great mystery……I reminded my friend of the last time we saw each other at Rory Gallagher concert….how we both walked off into the late night streets after it just breathing in the air and smiling……Thanks to you JD bless you! This one’s for you!
Hey, churchofpoetry, the large bottle is actually a deep green one filled with a rather nice vintage tap water....grins! I will look out for your food pics at the Urbanspoon too!
What's been up other's asked. I've had a little exploratory surgery in my lower spine -- done with out putting me under or down grins -- and the removed a little pin and metal that had been in there since my early 30's after a football injury. Seems they don't like metal stuff at Kings College Medico Thingy and now I've got some silicon substance covered with kevlar iin there...but the nerves will continue to fall away. Cheers all and always feel free to ask. Oh, some said they'd like to stay in touch if \I get fired outta here...as Tumblr and that lawyer still threaten me.....gladly if you send along your name I'll send my emaill any time. Love and hugs to all of you!

I was driftin’ around…not that four wheel kind but maybe in there somewhere — when I heard this one on my iPod — I began to breach a huge smile. Feck, yes, Cousin Leo, yes!!!! Now he speaks from the place that very few performers and certainly no “Rock” folks vantage point. 80 years on the Blue Marble and still his poetic soul shines — one of my ward mates in the medico farm said something about it not really being singing….told him to take some more Thorazine and call the doc in the morning! Yes, please I’ll have some of what Leonard is having! Ironically, I am closer in age to Mr. Cohen than I am to my younger sister. Peace, love and heavy sauce, y’all!
Its nice to be back…nice to see y’all! There have been a few skirmishes with the usual suspects and a few plagues upon my house…but I find that music, mirth and the company of good folks keeps one going on and going strong. So nice to Mr. Plant doing what he did once again like way back when he did it for us on the first intro….gem of a little album too! And Darlin’ Nicci says it’s ok for a bloke to say…”Emmm that there Robert Plant is one sexy old dude….” But back to the tune…. Love this tune for it’s drone which accompanied me in the tube scope MRI thing today….love to y’all!
I need to get up and about more — I’m best when on me wheels and hurtling about! So this song was on my iPod this a.m. as my darlin and I marched off to find our java fix and a newspaper…..another addiction I read two or three newspapers on Saturday and Sunday…..But to get on with this track, I’ve known Naomi’s music since back in the day when she had a minor hit in the mid-60’s her name then was Naomi Davis and she could bring it…this is moving and fitting for the day’s brief — The Sunday Got Spirit selection from The Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner! Peace, love and happy feets, y’all!
