Auden as 'the kind of critic every poet dreams of finding. Outside the university, he's probably best known for two driving passions - for T. Eliot and more controversially for Bob Dylan.
His new edition of Eliot's poems comes out this month: it's been several years in the making, and is the first complete edition of Eliot's poetry ever published. For Private Passions, he has compiled a fascinating playlist of music, including musical settings of great poetry, and some Bob Dylan naturally. And there's an overall theme - it's a meditation on youth and age.
A visiona dream, an illusion, an apparition? This edition of Words and Music explores hallucinations in all their various forms — some are unsettling, some enlightening, and some are perfectly friendly. Samantha Bond and Stephen Campbell Moore are the actors who reveal them to us. Inspiration has come to artists throughout the ages disguised as visions. Blake's visions of the divine illuminated his work too and his Auguries of Innocence reappears throughout the programme.
I'm just glad that three of The Band members are still around and enjoying life. Early in his career, Mr. It's funny how the family trees of the so-called "country rock" west coast groups like the Byrds, Burritos, Poco, Eagles, et al.

Subject: byrds tribute dear calvin. Subject: Thanks to Bumbles Thanks for the assist Bumbles, as I said I was going from memory, and alas my memory isnt perfect. I was thinking as hated as Baitlan was by Byrd fans it would be strange to see him in a Byrds band at a later date. Anyone know what Gene Parson is up to?
A very underrated drummer who actually designed some of the guitars that Clarence WHite played. I know this string popped up before, but why is it nobody has problem 1, including me, with Levon, Garth and Rick going out without RIchard and Robbie. I'm guessing just the love for the group outweighs any concerns. Perspective I guess. Gene, Michael and Skip toured as a tribute band, although I was always pretty sure that was Gene's doing. As I said I was always under the assumption that there was an agreement between Chris, Gene, Dave and Roger not to use the Byrds name unless everyone was there.
An Agreement that Michael didnt seem to be all that interested it keeping. But my original statement hold, the fact 3 long time Byrds members toured as a tribute group showed a lot of class, what Michael did by himself is something else all together. It seems somewhat ironic that the only original member who didnt have a significant impact on the group would be the one who did that. One thing Ive noticed in the Who strain is the amount of people who comment on the live aspect of the group.
I always felt the came off much better live, perhaps ragged is the better word, their studio recording seemed far too polished and clean for the almost beastial live act they were. And I use Beastial in a very positive way. Good morning Luka, My son is 19 and he has listened to The Band since he was just Album). He loves Garth's Hudson not Brooks playing and was always fasinated with the over all raw sound of their albums.
Whether or not I can get him to post a message is the question. I'll see if I can get him to. You'd like him he's a good guy. Like or dislike The Who there is no denying the wonderful dynamic that was Keith Moon's unique style and Entwistle's powerful yet melodic bass lines. If my memory serves me well he contributed some pretty nice french horn parts as well.
The next thunderstorm we hear will likely be a bit more musical than any we've heard before.

They were supporting the quadraphenia movie and this was their second of 3 scheduled concerts. These were the first post Keith shows and the first was at Webley, Uk and the 3rd at the Cannes film festival in France.
Kenny Jones was the drummer and I guess hadn't had the time to rehearse the whole Who cataglog. After 2 encores the group comes out for one more song and Townshend or Daltrey annnounces " We've run out of songs that Kenny knows, please bear with us" or something to that affect. They then rip into "My Wife" and I don't know or care who sang the song on the album, but I do know, on that summer night in south Germany, John Entwistle did the honors and sent us on our way.
RIP Johnny Twinkletoes. Subject: John Entwhistle and Timothy White The most emotional and powerful concert I ever witnessed was a Who concert the week after 11 people were trampled to death at one of their Album) in Cincinnati. Daltry and Townshend were their usual frantic selves Moon was already dead but Entwhistle was solid and precise--the anchor that held the whole thing down.
He'd step up to the mike for "Boris the Spider" or "My Wife," but otherwise he was back there making the show tick, sort of like the Wizard of Oz behind his curtain. He was a fine writer and I have heard good things about him personally from an old friend who is the Washington, DC correspondent for the magazine.
May they both rest in peace. We are lucky to have their work to remember them by. One of my prized possessions is the original 45 with picture sleeve featuring Ralph Steadman art for "Happy Jack.
Amanda: Good news! Your post about the Flatlanders may be considered Band related. They played several workshops together, including one on new songs featuring Butch and Rick. Subject: Entwhistle Ive been close friends with a couple of brothers for many of years, and they peppered me with their devotion of the Who for far to long. But even through all that I had to admire the Ox, you see Ive been playing the Bass for a lot of years, and no matter if I decided I could live the rest of my life without hearing Wont Get Fooled Again another time, I never lost sight that Entwhistle was one hell of a great bass player.
The man could flat out play the Bass, the only guy I ever saw who could rival his playing was Jack Bruce, but even Bruce didnt have his flair. So here is to you Thunderfingers, even though I dont need to hear Behind Blues Eyes ever again in this lifetime, I'd watch those fingers of yours work that fret any day of the week. And while Im at it I bought the Flatlanders CD the day it came out, heck I was camped out Borders waiting for it to open, and it is truly wonderful. Yes, indeed that is Mr.
John Entwistle singing the lead on "My Wife", one of the many great songs he penned. The rock world lost a true pioneer today, and one of it's finest bassists. Rest in peace, Thunderfingers. Subject: YOU You are all forgiven! I woulda thought a band with members of The Byrds and Rick Danko woulda been great to see and hear.
I heard it was his 60th birthday gig and had read how all these rock'n'roll stars were at the one in St. Well, it seems Chuck picked his own superstar band that night A great show! I dunno Cut to and I got to open for the Kinks here in Cork City I told the great bassist that I'd seen him play with Chuck Berry in NYC in '86 and he feigned embarassment and put his hands over his eyes and said said "Woah! You were AT that gig? I dont think either Gene or Michael had fallen on hard times, although I cant swear to this.
Michael had been in both Parson Burrito Brothers and the Light Rock outfit Firefall in the years after the Byrds, so I doubt either were wondering where there next meal was coming from. But the biggest reason I dont see it as a farce is how the billed it, 2 original members, plus Skip Baitlan who played bass on I think 4 Albums, could have legitimately been called themselves the Byrds.
But unlike every other time a couple former members have regrouped, other than Plant and Paige, they didnt bill themselves as the group but rather a tribute.
To me that showed a ton of class, nothing ticks me off more than going to some club to see the Lovin Spoonful and the drummer and thee guys Ive never seen are on stage. I have a feeling after the album there might have been a handshake agreement not to use the name without everyone there though. The Hillman, Clark and McGuinn released albums together under a name other than the Byrds seems to indicate that as well.
As for the current Byrds group that doesnt have a single members who ever played on a Byrds album, ive been told somehow they bought the rights to the name from Michael Clarke's widow, although Im not sure of that. Better be anyways. On John Entwhistle: Jesus Lopez! What a downer! I just posted that Who link just the other day.
Scroll down and check it out. Way too sad in retrospect. Subject: John and Rick My two favorite bass players of all time. Trust me, not many my age listen to this great music.
What hurts me the most is that I will never get the chance to see either live. God bless both of 'em. One question to any "Who fans on here.
Does John sing lead on "My Wife". I thought it was John but have read in places it was Roger. Thanks guys. Take care all. Subject: Robert Blake Trivia Answer is An investigation was under way into the cause of death, he added. The Who, known for such hits as "My Generation," "Pinball Wizard" and "Won't Get Fooled Again," were scheduled to begin their three-month tour in a small club at the hotel.
Original drummer Keith Moon died of an accidental pill overdose in In addition to playing bass, Entwistle helped out on backing vocals. His songwriting contributions to The Who were sporadic, mostly limited to a few album tracks and B-sides.
He released a half-dozen solo albums. Entwistle, who was born in the London suburb of Chiswick on Oct. The band ultimately took shape in and made an immediate impression with its "Mod" stylings and its expensive habit of trashing all its stage equipment after each set.
Sadly, there was another Rock and Roll death today, Timothy White, editor in chief at Billboard magazine and a great journalist, passed away from a heart attack at Anyone who's read Billboard can remember his great articles. What the heck happened? John was not that old.
This is very sad. I have had tickets for Chicago This sucks! Paul,,Electro Glide in Blue? That was filmed in Victorville,California the town I was born. That's bummer news about John Entwhistle,,I believe The Who were just about to start a 22 show tour any day now.
RIP Ox. What was the name of the movie and soundtrack album that had a huge fold-out motorcyle poster in it? The winner gets to dream up the next question? But that doesn't mean something didn't happen. Damn, I hope not!!! Is it sick or what?
Since it's Capitol Records, is The Band next? I sure as hell hope not!!! They are now trying to rewrite history. I'm curious about everyone's opinions on this subject. Subject: sad news John Entwhistle died today. The only member of The Who I liked.
He was Twilight's post has me completely discombobulated. Is The Ox gone? I went to a few websites, but didn't see anything about it. Gee, I hope it's misinformation. My prayers and thoughts go out to Entwistle family. It's a good film all around. Blake has also taken little bit roles and parts that would have been nothing to practically any other actor and made them shine like jewels in the sun!
The sure sign of a quality actor. I own the one that's about 30 years old also. I was so disapointed that "Paint Yourself" wasn't there! Sorry for rattlin' on. Subject: John Entwistle just bummin about the loss of one of my favorite bass players.
Subject: robbie in films. Thank you Mr. Anyway, it's from May 16, in Evansville, IN. David Powell, are you interested? Subject: alfalfa Charlie, I can hear the resemblance but can't see it. So many great song's on this Cd. I especially enjoy JWB's, version of the "Weight". Mavis Staples, singing lead vocals, adds so much for me! My all time favorite song will always be, "Hidden in Plain Sight". The words to that songs, has so meaning. Of course, this is the only song that seems to skip on my Cd player!
Another great Cd, is Van's "Down the Road". Van, proves once again, that he still has it! I just ordered "Whispering Pine's", and often wished that Richard and Van would of had that opportunity to do a record together! Oh, just to hear Van and Richard singing, Georgia together! This is one summer for some great music, great show's, and great friends! Dave Z,,,lost ya E address! Be glad to assist with road trip!
I hope Robbie puts Paint Yourself, the Trudell number, on his box set Meanwhile, I have been enjoying this extremely hot n' muggy MN weather Not a bad song on it I think I like this version of Remedy better than the Band's take on it I'm looking forward to the Crowmatix one when it comes out I'm eyeing it up if I can find a relatively cheap way to get there from MN I really didn't see your posts about the Dylan movie I admit my attention span hasn't been at full capacity.
The film does sound interesting though. I'm all scooby-dood out :- Don't be too disappointed Jan. You know my very favorite Norwegian is now Jonas Fjeld :- Hug. David Powell, nice assemblage! What can I do to get a copy of that? Rick and Richard are in fine form, and do a handful of Band songs in addition to helping out on the Byrds chestnuts.
Hey, I think I just answered the trivia question from a couple of posts ago! If you want to do a trade, David, drop me an email at: LD0perator aol. I tried to get a mix of both instrumental and vocal cuts along with some superb guest vocalist cameos. With a few exceptions, I think it's basically in chronological order.
Levon was working with Tim Wilson doing two projects. One was an oldies, which may have been titled "Atlanta to Memphis". I've lost contact with everyone, and just discovered this website.

Viney: I have the Ya Ya soundtrack album, and it's good. T-Bone is quite obviously doing a cajun version of his "O Bro. T-Bone's ex-Alpha Band partner David Mansfield is co-credited with doing the movie's music, but not the soundtrack album.
I recommend the album, but not the movie -- although I've not even seen the film myself. I'm afraid to: I understand the theaters are denying admission to anyone bearing a pair of testicles. Indeed, if you go, Viney, I think you'll find yourself more accepted if you show up in drag.
The new Louisiana Red album is supposed to have a photo inside of Red getting the key to the city of Woodstock, as Muddy got when he did his Woodstock album.
Couldn't Woodstock do better than a chintzy "Good Luck" plaque? By the way, whoever Red's got drumming on that album is sure hot! Just bein' feisty -- lighten up! I will watch "In Cold Blood" again. To be honest with you I remember the book more than the movie. Can't remember Robert Blake in the movie. You are right about him being most noted for that lousy cop series he was in. As far as age I don't know how old you are and I am still trying to figure out how young I am.
Spanky was kind of lame IMO. As far as Robbie goes, you are right he is making a helluva lot more money than the Album) of the guys. I think that is the big issue. I am planning a trip in the fall and would really appreciate any recommendations you might offer. Please email. Thanks all. The new Dylan movie that is being filmed right now, is the best news in a long time. I am delighted that a film with strong female characters was mentioned.
I did see the film as all good Southern girls should and I thought the music was excellent Ashley Judd is outstanding as the young Vivian. With Richard also on this song, it makes it even better. Best Regards to all GB'ers! SPIN always have Band related stuff early. Haven't seen the "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" yet- it was on in Orlando, but with jet-lag I didn't fancy my chances of staying awake through a late night movie so will wait for the UK release.
Subject: zeppelin sings dylan check out the new album, 'dreamland' by Robert Plant'. Now Again by The Flatlanders link above. I was thrilled that they had some new music and thought I would share the news. Subject: eBay Notice Sorry to come in again and post so soon but I was checking eBay this morning just for something to do and I found a special something in Robbie's section.
It is a "Guitar Player" magazine with Robbie on the cover. What Album) so special about it is the fact that it's Rick's subscription copy with label intact! Sent to his old Malibu address. It comes with another Guitar Player mag with Robbie on the cover and a copy of "This Wheels On Fire" and a little something else that I can't remember now. It's a good deal too I just thought that the little address label would be worth mentioning here. I got watery eyed just lookin' at it. Hey Jerry, That little package would be perfect for you!
Subject: brian wilson in concert i love the band. Spielberg has made an amazing movie. According to the "expecting rain" site which I should've checked first. As someone who just sat through 2 hours of "scooby-doo" the other night. I just caught the tail end of this on the radio here and was wondering if anyone has heard about it and has more info?
Something about a new movie coming out with Penelope Cruz and Bob Dylan? Dylan's supposed to be playing his own music in the film. Didn't catch the title or when it's coming out. Have a good day everyone. Hug Jan. Pehr and rosalind - Thank you for the kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed the site. Aww geez Butch. Pine Plains??
Unfortunately, I've already committed myself and stop thinking 'it's about time' :- to the son of a very good friend's graduation party that night.
Can you write me a note to get out of it? Subject: I Am I Said Yeh Roz Sparky is fine as is Jerry, Well I don't currently own a powder blue suit but must confess that at a earlier juncture in my life that wasn't the case, talk about an ugly time. As for picking up Helms book, I may have to do that but definatley read it keeping in mind who's writting it. I'm sure there was some greed involved but I like these guys for what they were, there relationship now does not affect me in the least bit, shit I just wish I had someone to argue with over a few million though Not only would I sing "I Am I Said" in a powder blue suit but if called for I would sing it buck ass naked if I could find the 20, or so suckers paying those Neil ticket prices Have a good weekend Subject: Testing Subject: hmm Well Unless you have a powder blue suit and a mic and sing "I am I said" every night of course.
Do Ya hun? I think it would be better if you got Levon's book to find out why he's not too well liked around here sometimes. Nobody risks bringing it up anymore. It's in remission. I got a copy of the book, paid 22 bucks for it.
You can find it on eBay for about 4 bucks. It's a interesting read. That "Next Waltz" chapter will send you across the room.
If definately as you say, "one-sided" uh-huh! I'm not hell-bent on supporting Robertson altho I do think he's taken quite enough already! Pehr, Sorry I spelled your tag wrong Enlighten me, what the heck did RR do to be accused of having no charcter?? I'm sitting here surfing with the relatives watching the tube when in the back ground of "Black and Blue", comes Richard Manuel singing "Whispering Pines"!
Mainstream TV! Great feeling! I didnt, and still dont get what the SOS refers to. I figured it was a cry for help of some kind but blew it off. Later I felt like supporting Rosalinds take which I presumed was similar to my own, i. RR needs help of some kind in coming up with good material????
The burning of cd's was just a pun, a light attempt at humor, mainly addressed to Mr Powell, whose post from yesterday I connected with thru the thread of your SOS post and Rosalind, Phew and not malicious personally toward you, or anyone. RR's personal character seems to be a hot topic in here from time to time, though I personally find the topic tiresome and depressing.
I'm not very much interested in getting involved with that kind of thing,though I doubt anyone's qualifications to be a meaningful judge on the issue. My Hank Williams and old Elvis records are almost worn out. Subject: ain't that always the way Dammit Butch that sounds like one hell of a show.
Check out the irony in that my brother. Hate to miss what sounds like a great show. Have fun! Subject: Press awareness You don't think Mr. Robertson is aware of the bad press and the knock down punches he's gotten over the last 10 years? Is that what you're saying G-Man? Get Real! Sorry if I misunderstood your SOS post tho. I'm relatively new here and I don't know everyone's stand on the miserable mess referred to as the "fued.
I'm glad Petr and I agree that Robbie's solo stuff is something to be admired to say the least! Robbie should be mighty proud of his post-Band work!
Back in 87 when RR's first album was released, I remember one night I was sitting in the livingroom with an FM station on. This DJ was talking about this "brand new artist" from Canada that had been "creating such a buzz in the music world with his first solo album.
You know what they followed the introduction to that "new" artist with? I laughed and reached for the phone to call this wanker up and nail him and tell him to buy a guide or something! I stopped dead when I realized that maybe OL 44 year old, roadhouse veteran, 30 year rock and roll legend, musical genius Robbie would have appreciated that introduction!
Last Announcement!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the presumptuousness!!! I never have been critical of Robertson's musical talent!!! My post related to a discussion re. Then, others mentioned a release of another boxed set which to me would be the SOS!!! Actually,I heard that RR was releasing some new stuff in the works ; very reliable source!!
I do have all of his music!! Then to be tagged a Levonista thought Mr. Helm was from Arkansaswhatever that is? Jesus the Christ, have we ever met to discuss and understand my views, and yours'? Dang,,Robertson was supposed to go out with Clapton and Ginger Baker and some others early 90's but it fell through-wouldda been great!!!!
I have all his official post band releases and think its damn good music. I cant wait to hear the new stuff. I'm very intrigued. David would you be so kind to email me at your convenience at pehr yahoo?
Brien just checked out your site. Love your photographs. Subject: Who??? Tammy's posted here before??? Subject: New Prof. Louie CD. Just wondering if it is available through Woodstock Records? If not where did you find it? Subject: G-man's post Well, since no one else seems to care enough to comment on that off-the-wall post, I wish to "respectfully disagree! From his first solo album to his most current, this guy has NEVER failed to bring something fresh and new to the playing field!
SOS huh? He seems to be doing alright! He's looking good, He's playing good and he's making a hell of a lot of money I bet!
I give him one other thing. He's not making a fool of himself in the press! He's been taking it on the chin with his mouth closed! After being baptized, I sought salvation, put my money in the collection plate and bought a copy. That is some definitely soul-shaking music. Robert Randolph's glissandos on the pedal steel remind me of Duane Allman at times!
I would love to hear Levon sit in on drums with that group of musicians. You don't mean to say that the rest of us are as simplistic and judgemental as you, do you?
