Tonight it is Joe Satriani's "If I Could Fly"
But other nights it could be John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer"
Then the next it could be Duke Ellington and John Coltrane's "In a Sentamental Mood" or Nina Simone's "Feeling Good"

My name is Joel Goodson. I deal in human fulfillment.
I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?
I always liked Mandy (Barry Manilow's song), what can I say.
But right now I've got one of the reissued Creedence Clearwater Revival albums on, loud. The catalogue has been re-mastered this year with bonus tracks.
On Bayou Country, they've added a song from a '69 Fillmore West show called Crazy Otto. It's a blues, fairly lengthy, with great chord work and psychedelicized solos. Amazing, heavy stuff.

Russian Player (Trying to be friendly, "hip", and topical): "We very much like your Elton John in my country."
Jackson: "Well, I'm into Funkadelic myself!" (He then cuts in and slurps a drink from the water fountain.)
Russian Player (Looking bewildered and soooo out of touch): "Funka-what??"
I was a senior in high school when that aired. 28yrs ago. I still remember it. I remember the guys (mostly white) on our high school baseball team howled with laughter at the line for weeks! It became "the line" du jour. I wonder why it resonated so much with us then, and me to this day?

Tonight, a great cover by a great band, CCR doing Cotton Fields:
And now, amazingly almost 40 years later, John Fogerty doing the same song:
Which do you prefer? I love both.
