another enticing share.... although not overly keen on mime performances , i do really dig the line-up and setlist appearing here... curious as to whether this is an "as broadcast" or fan-edit (which Breathe and Harvested do supremely well)and if these are eighties or later rebroadcasts.... itll be an adventure to sift thru it , thats for sure...

noticed another anonymous as well , so i better sign these for K.C. and Doc .

Dig your awesome attitude to the Docs efforts K.C. , having been a quiet follower of Docs for a long time ive seen him persevere thru shutdowns , asinine comments which can ruin the love of blogging , and
greatly appreciate his titanic efforts for us... he fought hard despite all ... and resurrected this blog when all seemed lost for it.... nice to see someone out there with proper perspective... and Doc , as always many many thanks for all you do and ever have...

JB -

In reply to your question as to whether these are fan edits - No. These are a series of programs broadcast by the ARTE channel (French language in Belgium & France, I believe) in the late 2000s.

There will be a total of seven installments. So, here's hoping that you like obscure 1970s era rock videos!

Regarding the Waltons - I have to tell you that I'd always thought of "Jim Bob" as a name that was probably invented for the Waltons - probably satirizing the sub-culture in which the program was set. Flash forward many years, I met a Boiler contractor (a fellow who installs steam boilers - huge hot water heaters, if you like) named Jim Bob. At first, I thought that someone was having a joke on me at his expense. But... it turned out that Jim Bob was really his name.

Before you feel too badly, I looked my name up in a database of those people incarcerated or on parole in the state of Michigan. It turns out that there are currently 6 such people with my name. And... they're a very unfriendly looking lot.

It's all madness.

Thanks, Jim Bob!
Great questions...I must tell you about the was love at first cone. Indeed, I wish my favorite bands could his kind of treatment (life 'breathed' back into them) but even more importantly the band in question could certainly be enhanced by his completely immersed love for the band...what color was that valentine's heart anyway? True love, wish you were here.
(PS- don't call me shirley with that axe , eugene)

Wow! What the hell just happened?
The Stones - Brown Sugar with Mick doing the best vocal performance of his career. The rest of the band could never be that tight live...pre-recorded backing track in my opinion. If I'm wrong about that...then this is the best Stones I've ever seen.
