@Jani Loved Bodhisattva from the moment I first heard it and they played it at the University of Toledo in 1972? Rikki is also a favorite. Believe or not my favorite that always takes my back in time and is even more relevant today..

Jani is correct, he is an under rated guitar player, had this one on a 8 track so long ago,  it's an open highway tune......

 

 

Thanks sis....

I've seen Robin 3 times - all in the 1970's loved James Dewar on vocals - we did several of his songs - Day of the Eagles was my favorite to play.

 

I saw him at the Toledo Agora where he opened for Rory Gallagher - what an amzing show that was....

James had a phenomonal voice and always played a great bass behind Robin.   Day of the Eagle is so cool!  

 

Trower and Gallagher must have been one big guitar fest!

Love her voice, a song that just makes me cry, and brings such deep joy, a lovely vibe this morning....

The first thing in my mind as the emotions flow over me and I move forward and out of joy for @Kylie and @Katharina and their successful surgeries and their recoveries - I am filled with tears of joy. So I decided to google the song title Tears of Joy and this came up and I never heard it before - but having had Joe Cocker and Paul Rodgers and Greg Allman has my first Gospel-ish vocal mentors it was a joy to find a Gospel song - I'm crying tears of joy and you here at TransPulse Forum have made it happen....Thank You

Continuing with the Joy theme, can't forget this...

 

The tears become a "sea of joy"

A super group that was here and then gone.  Steve Winwood's vocals are so unique and who would have thought there would be a violin in one of their songs?  Thanks Cyndee.

I love the violin in that song, it gives it such character Jani.....

 

and yes they came and went so fast, leaving such a wonderful legacy, a point in time, a place holder in music history. That album still sounds great today, it happens to be in my CD changer.... as I've been revisiting it in the past few weeks.

Not to be snobbish but there was such an explosion of music from all corners back in that era.  The mixing of genre's, tempo's, timing changes, instruments, and lyrics was unheard of.  I think today's music owes so much to the 60's and early 70's artists.

and my favorite Blind Faith song................

I think back in the 60s and 70s there was more raw talent than there is now.

No auto tune software for voice tracks for example.

Not to mention these bands did shows night after night not just a few gigs here and there.

I still want to work like that.  Because no venues, you can't do it in one convenient home place.  So you find yourself solo because noone wants that pace.  Solo=noone has your back=vulnerable, scared, sad.

 

Of course covid now wants us to think everything's over, and that there is no reality outside of the devices they sell us.

 

Anyone out there want to break this box open?

I need to get into NJ or NY I think

The covid thing is really sad for artists plain and simple, for example we currently have a state wide live music ban here in WA state. No gigs, no festivals, no fun. We still hold concert tickets for a band that can't play here, it's been rescheduled for next year.

 

It's not going to last forever, just have to be resourceful in the interim. I love to travel, I look forward to getting back on the road when this mess subsides....

There is a venue here in Londonderry that's doing concerts in their parking lot.  You have to stay in your car though.  Its tough, I miss going to concerts.

 

Listened to so Charlie Farren today.  He was lead singer in Joe Perry's "Joe Perry Project" and in a number of other bands, most notable Farren/Heit.  He's a cool personality! 

 

This is an acoustic tune for his friend Brad Delp of "Boston" who lived about 15 minutes from me.

So sad about Barry Delp. Tom Sholz is from the rich suburb of Toledo called Ottawa Hills. I lived in Toledo , not Ottawa Hills but it was cool to have him from near by. They were good in concert. Saw them right after the first album broke BIG. Another Robin Trower concert at the Toledo Sports Arena with Boston opening.

Isn't it amazing how acts will go from Opening to Headliner and back again?  Sometimes there are odd combinations too, like Hendrix opening for the Monkees.

In keeping with the Boston theme, when I heard this in '76 it was some of the best orchestrated rock music I'd ever heard, just love this medley and arrangement. I bought a "Half Speed Mastered" vinyl copy CBS made, and still have it, it was a great test for dynamic range in a modern stereo of the day, sure sounds great in digital now....love it...

I love that intro!  Sort of ELP like?   

 

So do you have to play the Half Speed Master at half speed or is that just the speed the master was cut at?  I can imagine the master had much better clarity.

Thanks for your question Jani, CBS records made a limited number of Boston's first album cut with half speed mastering, released in 1980, and sold them to collectors back then at a premium (~ $ 20). They were cut at half speed, just as google explains below. Last I checked on E bay they were fetching about a hundred dollars today. They were sought after for their superior dynamic range on a vinyl medium.......

 

What exactly is half-speed mastering? It's a vinyl cutting process whereby the disc-cutting lathe for an LP is run at half the speed – so for an album that would be 16 and two thirds, which is half of 33 and a third – and the master source is run at half the speed as well.

      It's too late for coffee but.......   For some reason I was compelled to check the mail today. Not surprising there was a birthday card from my mother. I just figured it was the normal everyday card but it wasn't. The first word I read, in a big scripted font was "Daughter". Right there in front of me, a card from my mother, to her daughter. Honestly I didn't really know if my mother would ever truly accept me. Now...I do. I really wanted to cry (not in front of the wife) but I will cherish that card forever.   Before dinner I found myself out getting lottery tickets. The jackpot is somewhere around 6-700mil. The ATM is broken at the first store I went to (closest to my house) and won't let you pay for 'em with a debt card. A random customer piped-up and suggested where I could go. I headed out. The cashier there was extremely friendly, very helpful and kind of cute. When I was checking out he looked at me, in a sweet little voice, said "I know *****'s no your name, what is it? I just replied "Elizabeth". He then tells me what beautiful name I have. After he said that I did hear anything else. Holy crap! Did I just get hit on? or was he just flirting with me? When I told my wife she used what is becoming her standard reply, "This is what you asked for". What I asked for? Yeah...well, we'll talk about that at a later time. If it's what she has to do to settle with my transition so be it.   After dinner I got another happy surprise. For kicks I checked my work email. There was a message from HR. He asked me if I wanted my new insurance and benefits cards to have Elizabeth on them. We can do that? I'd love that. There have been a few things getting to me lately and I needed some love.

      Well I’m sitting here trying not to ugly cry. The calls to my Dad and brother went amazingly well. My brother said it didn’t bother him and he was glad I was taking steps to be happy. Dad almost immediately offered to help cover therapy and HRT med costs. Said he loved me and that would never change. He did say that he wouldn’t stop calling me his son, though given his age and the way he was raised I didn’t really expect him too.

      Well my Endo got my message and was going to see about getting a hold of my Pharmacist. NO word yet. Hurry up and wait is the thing.   Still no word on the job front. No call back on the evidence specialist and no call for an interview for the analyst position. I am starting to get disheartened. I know I can't. I guess I will keep plugging along. On day at a time.   I am dreading going back to work tomorrow. I know half way though my shift my back will be killing me. Anyone know a way I can have  my brain put in the body of a 23yr old female but she has to be hot.   Kymmie
    • KymmieL
      Mine does too. She'll hug me and say I love you even though I don't understand. I thought that was fine until I learned she doesn't want to understand.   I know once I move it will be hard on me since even with all the BS I still love her dearly. Kymmie

      It is 5:30 PM my time.  8 years ago at this time I had been taken to my room after GCS by Dr. Bowers at Sutter Hospital in San Benito CA, just outside of San Francisco.  I had been cleared to order dinner from the hospital kitchen, the food was actually good when it got there, but a wet beef burrito, miso soup, non-fat milk, and fruit cocktail for desert is not what most people would envision as their first meal of a new body, but it was good.  About twenty minutes before I got to the room, I had been in the Recovery ward, and in my haziness of coming out of the anesthetic I had had a dream of being in my parent's oldest car with them begging them to stop and pull over so I could pee. A few moments later it seems they connected my catheter to its collection bag and the dream and bladder discomfort ended.  I have one coming to picture that shows my legs under a blanket spread apart by a couple of ice bags on the swollen area and I see this in almost all of the "immediately after" pictures of my other Postie friends.  I call it Post Op Leg Position, but it is real and seen nowhere else.  I am happy it happened, but there were some rough times in the months to come, but by my first anniversary they were in the books as simply some unique memories.  As I have written here in the Forums, I have learned several things.  No matter how well prepared for GCS you are it will still be far from a walk in the park.  It will affect your outlook on life differently than you once imagined.  It can be lonely at the wrong times.  You will learn what GCS DOES NOT DO for your life and other's lives.  I know now that it is wrong for me to encourage others to have the surgery when they are unsure it is right for them, but once they know it is right, they can count on me for full support.  I have visited others and been with their families and friends as they are coming out of surgery many times, and those times help me with any small lingering doubts I have had to know I did the right things and it is wonderful and not the grotesqie horrors our H8ers imagine for us and about us.  It is my second BD celebration of this month.

      That is so frustrating.  I'm sorry you had to spend all that money not to mention emotional capital.  I do hope your surgery goes smoothly.  You've earned it.    Jani
    • KathyLauren
      Oy!  That was an expensive misplaced electrode!  Sorry that happened to you.   I have an intermittent heart irregularity that caused the docs some concern.  I have called 911 an gone to Emerg. a couple of times over the years when it did it for a long time, but it always clears up before anyone gets an EKG on me.   Anyway, my GCS surgeon wanted an EKG just to make sure.  So my local doctor booked an appointment at the hospital, and I got it done.  No problem until a couple of days before the final reporting deadline before my surgery: my file is complete, except they never received the EKG!   Quick call to my doctor: no, they never sent it.  Because they never received it from the hospital lab.  Call the lab.  No, they never faxed it anywhere.  Argh!!  Give them the fax number for my surgeon, tell them to fax it stat!  Finally, a call from the surgeon's office: they got it.  Whew!  Of course, it showed an absolutely normal heart, so I was good to go.   Good luck with your surgery, Jeanette!

      Mindy, this is a good sign. It takes time and she has to transition as well. Jani is right when she said " The solution will not be one sided as both of you will have to give somewhat." If Suzie sees that she might come around.   My wife started going back and thinking about everything that happened in our marriage, wondering what parts of it were a lie. We had a lot of those 0 to 212 degree spells along with relevant discussions. It has got much better, but I cried a lot during some of that.   Hugs, Mike

      Maybe not that PARTICULAR mess, but my spouse kept asking me things like, "What happens if they take one look at you and 'nope' out of there?" There was also, "What happens if they refuse your surgery? Can you live with that?"   I'm a fairly positive person. I like to have contingency plans if things go awry, but I don't borrow trouble. The love of my life borrows trouble enough for the both of us.   I'm glad it turned out to be nothing. I've lost three out of four grandparents to heart disease or complications from heart disease (Number four was throat cancer). ANYTHING potentially funky with your heart is well worth being sure about.   Hugs!
