Lady Gaga is a Desigual fan

Lady Gaga popped in at the recent Friends reunion to sing “Smelly Cat” with Lisa Kudrow.

Lada Gaga dropped in to the Friends Reunion last month wearing red Desigual trousers designed by Christian Lacroix. “I just happened to be walking by with my guitar.” Ms. Gaga said as she opened the door after knocking.

Desigual has been getting a lot of attention so far this year:

I know I should choose a Lady Gaga song, but it was Bob Dylan‘s birthday and this video popped up – a reunion concert by The Byrds; Bob comes onstage at about the 5;36 mark, but only sings background vocals, which is what I like about it:

Hey kids, this is Joni Mitchell. She wrote Both Sides Now, contained on Clouds, her second album released in 1969. She later met Larry Klein, who produced this recording with a full orchestra. Klein did a stunning job. But he became another lover to join a long list of men who loved Joni. She confesses: “I really don’t know life at all.”
THIS is Heaven by 1980s Brit New Wave band The Psychedelic Furs.

I just finished watching a French series, Call My Agent, on Netflix. One episode featured Charolette Gainsbourg, the daughter of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, who fell in love while making a film, Slogan. They also recorded this song together, a huge hit in 1969:

The late Doctor John (born Mac Rebennac –November 20, 1941 – June 6, 2019) – was the master of this song. He’s joined here by members of the Grateful Dead and musicians from around the world:

Desigual unveiled a new capsule collection by Columbian designer Esteban Cortázar, whose designs are rooted in the style of South Beach, Miami, in the 1990s, where Cortázar grew up. Angel doesn’t have any of this Summer 2021 collection, but I thought the video was cool:

Desigual by Miranda Makaroff, Summer 2021.
Desigual is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its collaboration with famed Paris fashion designer Christian Lacroix

Today’s music is Justin Bieber doing a Tiny Desk concert “at home” starting with his new song Holy, followed by Justin on piano singing Peaches:

One of my favourite Foo Fighters songs is Everlong. Dave Grohl explains how he wrote it in 1996, followed by an acoustic version, released last week:

My all-time favourite version of Everlong was this 1998 live outdoor performance in Vancouver:

Mary Wilson, a founding member of The Supremes, died last month at the age of 76. Here is an early hit by the trio, Stop In The Name of Love. Listen closely to the song’s opening and you’ll hear a Hammond B-3 organ intro played by a Vancouver musician named Robbie King, who was in Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers – the only local band ever signed to Motown. The band was discovered in 1965 by Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard while the trio was playing in Vancouver. While touring the U.S. with the Vancouvers, Bobby Taylor was blown away by an opening act — an Indiana group of brothers called the Jackson 5. Taylor called Motown owner Berry Gordy, urging him to sign the band. Taylor went on to produce the first singles released by the Jackson Five. Another member of Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers, Tommy Chong, later went on to form the popular stoner comedy duo Cheech and Chong.

This is the first 1968 Motown hit by Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers, co-written by Tommy Chong; it’s about a young Black man dating a white girl:

This was the flip side of the single, aka as the B side, of the above Gordy Records song. Malinda:

But wait, it doesn’t stop there: Two members of the band, Robbie King and drummer Duris Maxwell (at one time called Ted Lewis), later joined a Vancouver band, Skylark, that released this single. Wildflower:

The keyboardist was David Foster. This was his first hit in 1972, He went on to be nominated for 47 Grammy Awards, winning 16. It was co-written by Skylark guitarist Doug Edwards and a Victoria cop named Dave Richardson, who explained the inspiration for the song: “In 1970 I was dating a nurse, whom I would eventually marry in 1971 ….. One night I went to pick her up at her apartment, as we had planned on going out. When she opened the door I saw that she was upset to the point of tears. She still had a housecoat on and had her hair wrapped in a towel after a shower. She told me that two elderly ladies she had been caring for in the hospital had died that day at work, and she felt terribly sad about it, as she had come to know them fairly well over a period of time. Anyway, she more or less vented her feelings and I just listened. After she was finished, she thanked me for listening, and said she would get ready for our date. She went into the bedroom and closed the door, and I sat and watched TV waiting for her to come out. When she didn’t return, I knocked on the door but she didn’t answer, so I went in to find her fast asleep on the bed, still in her housecoat and with the towel still wrapped around her head. I guess she was just exhausted after her emotional day. So, I put a blanket over her, being careful not to wake her, and went home and wrote the song in about fifteen minutes or so. It was absolutely inspired. I have always felt that all I did was hold the pen in my hand, and that God did the writing. The ‘Be careful how you touch her, for she’ll awaken” part, refers to when I put the blanket over her. “The way she’s always paying, for a debt she never owes…” – It wasn’t her fault that the two ladies had died, and yet she felt so badly for them that she was crying.”

The song was later sampled by Tupac Shakur, Kanye West and Drake.

The location of my store in Gastown, 1886

Angel is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. We’re  on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, where Vancouver began. The historic photo (left) shows what the location of my store looked like in 1886.

One of my favourite corners of the Internet is Tiny Desk, which features musicians performing behind a desk in the Washington-DC headquarters of National Public Radio. Since the pandemic, performances have been from home. Here is Dua Lipa performing from a “home” studio in London, starting off with Levitating:

Twelve years ago, Joni Mitchell and Herbie Hancock performed a live jazz version of Mitchell’s classic, River:

I’m looking forward to seeing Peter Jackson‘s new film, The Beatles: Get Back, which will be released in 2021. It was supposed to be released in 2020 but was delayed by the pandemic. Jackson  explains in this preview that he’s still editing 56 hours of footage from the final Beatles recording sessions in 1969 at Apple Studios:

The Beatles had discussed playing a series of live concerts but the band only performed its final live concert on the rooftop of Apple Studio on Jan. 30, 1969. The Beatles final album was originally titled Get Back but was released May 8, 1970 as Let It Be, one month after the band broke up. Producer George Martin had originally produced the album but the Beatles weren’t happy with the mix and gave it to American producer Phil Spector for final overdubs and remixing. Martin did not get a credit as producer, causing him to say: “I produced the original, and what you should do is have a credit saying ‘Produced by George Martin, over-produced by Phil Spector’.”

This is Graham Nash‘s gift to Joni Mitchell on her 75th birthday. He wrote Our House when he was 27 and Joni was 26. A friend of mine was hitchhiking to Gibsons, on the Sunshine Coast and was picked up by Joni, who was coming off the Langdale Ferry. She drove them for a while and stopped the car, saying: “I’ve got to stop at this pub and have a beer with a friend. If you’re still on the road when I come out I’ll give you a ride.” Well, they didn’t get another ride and Joni came out of the pub with her friend and picked them up – there was my friend and two others, including a dulcimer maker from the Appalacians. Joni got in the car with her “friend” – Graham Nash, Laurel Canyon lovers at the time – and kept asking questions about the dulcimer in the back seat. She said she had a song that would fit so well with dulcimer, which she played to demonstrate: A Case of You.

You would need 59 minutes to watch this Steely Dan video explaining their LP Aja:

Today’s music: Two new songs by Stevie Wonder, who I first saw in 1965 in Vancouver as the opening act for the Rolling Stones. At the time, he was known as “Little Stevie Wonder” because he was only 14 and his hit then was Uptight (Everything’s All Right). Stevie is 70 now, still producing great music. This first features guitarist Gary Clark Jr.

The second features a number of rap/hip-hop stars:

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about Leonard Cohen. He sang “I’m ready my Lord” two months before he died four years ago; This song was released on Leonard’s 82nd birthday. “A million candles burning for the help that never came”:
