I see that blues-rocker  Gary Clark Jr. has a Vancouver concert scheduled for Sept. 10th,  which has been moved from the PNE Forum to Malkin Bowl (an outdoors venue located in Stanley Park). Catfish Blues, live, has influences of Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy:

This Land is his latest scorchingly angry song about a neighbour after Clark bought 50 acres of land – the neighbour thought Clark was up to no good. “Right in the middle of Trump country,” he sings:

She Said, The Jins, recorded March 2, 2019 in Vancouver, Live @333:

You’re Gonna Miss Me, a 1966 hit from 1966 by The 13th Floor Elevators. Their lead singer, Roky Eriksen, died the day before June 1st of this year. He’s credited for being one of the pioneers of psychedelic rock:

John Prine wrote this song. Bonnie Raitt made it famous. They join forces here for a live version of Angel of Montgomery:

I listened to the first album by Madonna and dismissed her as an Italian girl named Louise Ciccone from Michigan wanting to be a star. But her record company hired former Chic member Nile Rodgers to produce Like a Virgin, which was brilliant. With this song, Madonna introduced the mainstream to EDM (electronic dance music):

Bad breaks, setbacks. I don’t want to be negative, but “God knows where we’re headed”:

I think King Crimson should have had a fourth drummer (recorded in Japan, 2015):

Well, there’s always this to dance to:

The free Desigual tote bag isn’t a Little Green Bag, but it’s all I could think of. Here’s the original very low-budget video of the 1970 song by Dutch band the George Baker Selection:

The 50th anniversary of Otis Redding’s Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, played by Jack Johnson & Aloe Blacc & lotsa others for the Playing for Change Foundation:

Psychedelic rock pioneer Roky Erickson, 71, died recently. He was the lead singer of the Texas band, the 13th Floor Elevators. This is a live song from their 1966 debut album:

Dr. John passed away this week. Born Mac Rebennack, he began playing New Orleans clubs at a young age, later becoming a session musician who recorded with such artists as Sonny & Cher, Harry Nilsson, the Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Frank Zappa and many others. His first album in 1968, Gris-Gris, was recorded under the name “Dr. John, the Night Tripper.” I remember seeing him perform at the Gardens Auditorium in Vancouver, festooned in feathers, beads and sprinkling the audience with sparkle dust. Here is a live version of Such A Night with The Band, from The Last Waltz:

Mick Jagger announced recently that he had to cancel the Rolling Stones tour of Canada and the U.S. due to mysterious health reasons – He had to have a heart valve replaced. Here is a Stones instrumental recorded in 1964 at the legendary Chess Studios, located at 2010 South Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The Stones took a two-day break from their first U.S. tour, which wasn’t going well — they had been booed off the stage when they played a teen fair in Texas a few days earlier. The Stones didn’t yet have a hit in the U.S. and took a break to record 15 songs at Chess, releasing a five-song EP, 5 x 5, in England on Aug. 14, 1964. They recorded Satisfaction during the Chess sessions, and later added a fuzz-tone guitar. This instrumental, clocking in a 2:02 minutes, was included on the Stones first North American LP, 12 x 5. Keith Richards wrote in his biography that when the Stones first entered the Chess studio, they were surprised to find Muddy Waters painting the ceiling. Muddy also helped the Stones bring their amps in the studio. The song was built around Bill Wyman’s bass riff. And that’s Mick on harmonica @ 1:09.

Here is the longer 3:38-minute version:

I first saw the Stones in 1965 in Vancouver – at the Agrodome, with Little Stevie Wonder, then 14 years old, opening.

An odd remix mashup of the same song with The Clash:

As you can probably tell, I’m fascinated by remixes. Here’s 4 producers flipping a 12-second sample of jazz improvisation of Chopin’s Nocturne in E-flat, played on the piano. The challenge: they had 24 hours to produce a song.

Today’s music video is Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer, filmed in Tokyo:

And here’s a love-and-peace anthem from 50 years ago, Let’s Get Together, performed by Joni Mitchell with Crosby, Stills & Nash; it was a 1967 hit by the Youngbloods:

Steven Stills auditioned for The Monkees, but wasn’t successful, Instead he went on to form Buffalo Springfield and Crosby Stills Nash & Young.
