  • The Blues Brothers - Expressway To Your Heart

    3:53

    The Blues Brothers - 'Expressway To Your Heart' and 'Closing: I can't Turn You Loose' where mixed together from The Blues Brothers Complete [1998].

    The Lyrics:


    I've been trying to get to you for a long time
    Cause constantly you've been on my mind
    I was thinking 'bout a short cut that I could take
    But I found I made a mistake


    I was wrong
    It took too long
    I got caught in a rush hour
    Fellows started to shower
    you with love and affection
    Now you won't look at my direction


    On the expressway to your heart
    That expressway that's the best way


    At five o'clock it's much too crowded (Too crowded)
    Much too crowded (Too crowded)
    Much too crowded (Too crowded)
    Too crowded for me
    Couldn't get through to you baby
    Oh, it's too crowded


    Well there're too many in back of me
    And they're all tryin' to get in front of me
    I was thinking I saw a road up ahead
    But I saw a stoplight instead


    I was wrong
    It took too long
    I got caught in a rush hour
    Fellows started to shower
    you with love and affection
    Now you won't look at my direction


    On the expressway to your heart
    That expressway that's the best way


    I was wrong
    It took too long
    I got caught a rush hour
    Fellows started to shower
    you with love and affection
    Now you won't look at my direction


    On the expressway to your heart
    That expressway that's the best way
    That expressway to your heart
    That espressway that's the best way


    At five o'clock it's too crowded (Too crowded)
    Much too crowded (Too crowded)
    Much too crowded (Too crowded)
    Too crowded
    Too crowded for me
    Just couldn't get through baby
    Oh, oh, oh, much too crowded
    Oh, oh, oh, much too crowded

  • CAPTAIN BEYOND AT ACES LIVE MUSIC

    1:23:44

    The music of CAPTAIN BEYOND is amazing, but reproducing it in a LIVE environment is not easy. The first album, in particular, is so layered that if you try to perform it with one or even two guitarists, the audience, the FANS will notice.
    Bobby Caldwell, knows this....it is HIS music after all.
    When deciding to put the band together that he would take out on the road, and perhaps into the studio, he wanted quality musicians, and three guitars.....
    He knew a couple as they were part of an earlier incarnation of the band, but he wanted, and he found several more...
    and so in June of 2017, Bobby Caldwell brought CAPTAIN BEYOND to the small stage of ACE'S LIVE MUSIC, in Bradenton, Florida as the first date in their 2017 Tour....
    The venue was packed, the crowd alive with anticipation, I had asked for and was given permission to film the show. This was a dream project of mine and even though I was a little light on equipment I vowed to do the best capture I could.
    I shot with five cameras, four were locked off shots with me the only hand held camera.
    Audio could've become a problem as I couldn't get a 'board feed', but the audio guy was very helpful and he was up on the raised balcony at the back of the room and showed me a neat place to mount my digital recorder and the two condenser mics on the recorder got a good overall mix from the live room, and the drums were helped by mixing in some of the mics from the drum cam....yes...Bobby has a camera devoted to him and almost every drum fill is a cut to Bobby.
    This was the first performance of this new group of musicians. The music is tough, the pressure was real.....I LOVED IT....it wasn't perfect....it was LIVE!
    I was RIGHT IN FRONT......I had the BEST seat in the house.....I was almost on the stage....the venue ACE'S has since closed, this is a tough business....as time passes I ask myself will there be any more?
    Nobody knows....but this......we'll ALWAYS have THIS!
    Please enjoy CAPTAIN BEYOND at ACE'S LIVE Music

    Nothing much here just heading from Ann Arbor, Michigan back to Chicago, Illinois through Berrien County where I once lived. I thought that a BoC track would fit perfect. Just showing the countryside of Michigan where I lived for the majority of my young life. I seriously was driving at like 128kmh and holding the camera steady recording; maybe that was not so safe. I adore this time of year there. The snow on the trees and the quietness is awesome. Nostalgic times of playing in the snow and getting firewood.

    I edited the track that is playing. The original track is;

    Boards of Canada - Left Side Drive.

    Enjoy;)

  • Buddy Miles Express at Chicago Blues, New York City, 1994 Part 4.

    11:37

    Buddy Miles Express at Chicago Blues, New York City, 1994 Part 4.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    With Tony Bridges, Jeff Levine, Crispin Cioe, Arno Hecht, Robert Funk, Larry Etkin, guest: Will Calhoun
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Crispin Cioe via Larry Blumenstein
    Hey, check out these audio clips, from 1994, of us in the Uptown Horns playing live in NYC with Buddy Miles at the Chicago Blues Club, 8th Avenue downtown (remember that joint?), just after we finished recording a studio album with Buddy, produced by Bill Laswell and featuring the great Jeff Levine Hammond B-3 organ. . . this am some funky stuff. . . . !
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Best known as the drummer in Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys, Buddy Miles also had a lengthy solo career that drew from rock, blues, soul, and funk in varying combinations. Born George Miles in Omaha, NE, on September 5, 1947, he started playing the drums at age nine, and joined his father's jazz band the Bebops as a mere 12 year old. As a teenager, he went on to play with several jazz and R&B outfits, most prominently backing vocal groups like Ruby & the Romantics, the Ink Spots, and the Delfonics. In 1966, he joined Wilson Pickett's touring revue, where he was spotted by blues-rock guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Bloomfield had left the Paul Butterfield Blues Band earlier in 1967 and was putting together a new group, the Electric Flag, which was slated to be an ambitious fusion of rock, soul, blues, psychedelia, and jazz. Bloomfield invited Miles to join up, and the band made its debut at the Monterey Pop Festival; unfortunately, the original lineup splintered in 1968. With founder Bloomfield gone, Miles briefly took over leadership of the band on its second studio album, which failed to reignite the public's interest.
    With the Electric Flag's horn section in tow, Miles split to form his own group, the similarly eclectic Buddy Miles Express. Signed to Mercury, the group issued its debut album, Expressway to Your Skull, in 1968, with Miles' fellow Monterey Pop alum Jimi Hendrix in the producer's chair. In turn, Miles played on Hendrix's Electric Ladyland album, and later took part in an all-star jam session that resulted in Muddy Waters' Fathers and Sons album. Hendrix also produced the Miles Express' follow-up, 1969's Electric Church, and disbanded his backing band the Experience later that year; shortly afterward, Hendrix, Miles, and bassist Billy Cox formed Band of Gypsys, one of the first all-black rock bands. Bluesier and funkier than Hendrix's previous work, Band of Gypsys didn't last long in its original incarnation; Miles departed in 1970, replaced by Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, but not before his powerhouse work was showcased on the group's lone album, the live Band of Gypsys.
    After backing John McLaughlin on 1970's Devotion, Miles returned to the role of bandleader and recorded his most popular album, Them Changes, in 1971; it stayed on the charts for more than a year, and the title cut became Miles' signature song. From December 1971 to April 1972, Miles toured with Carlos Santana, which produced the CBS-released concert document Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles! Live!; recorded inside an inactive volcano in Hawaii, the album sold very well, climbing into the Top Ten. Miles cut a few more albums for CBS, participated in a short-lived Electric Flag reunion in 1974, then moved to Casablanca in 1975 for a pair of LPs. Aside from a one-off album for Atlantic in 1981 (Sneak Attack), Miles kept a low profile over the next decade, partly to battle personal problems.
    Miles returned in 1986 as the lead voice in a TV ad campaign that featured clay-animated raisins singing I Heard It Through the Grapevine; the ads proved so popular that a kid-friendly musical franchise was spun off, and thus Miles became the lead singer of the California Raisins, performing on two albums (mostly R&B covers) and a Christmas special. Additionally, Miles rejoined his old friend Carlos Santana as the official lead vocalist of Santana during part of the late '80s, making his studio debut on 1987's Freedom. In the early '90s, Miles played with Bootsy Collins (both solo and as members of Hardware), and in 1994 he formed a new version of the Express and recorded Hell and Back for Rykodisc. Miles Away From Home followed in 1997 on Hip-O. Miles toured steadily through the '90s, and subsequently formed a more straightforward blues band called the Blues Berries with guitarist Rocky Athas; their first album, Blues Berries, appeared on Ruf in 2002.

    36

    This video is from November 2018.

    STORY: I was headed to work on the Long Island Expressway (I-495) on a Sunday morning. There were no road work signs or bump signs before approaching this area. As you can see in the video, I hit the first cut out road section and began slowing down. After slowing down, again no sign on the second cut out road section and due to the natural shade created under the overpass, I wasn't able to spot the cutout in time to slow down even more. Right after I hit the second section, the impact was so hard my wipers turned on, and the bottom left of my window had two 12-15inch cracks. Upon further inspection, both of my front tires also formed bubbles on the sidewalls. Unfortunate day... Car is a 2015 Honda Civic Si for anyone that is curious.

    George Allen Miles, Jr. (September 5, 1947 -- February 26, 2008), known as Buddy Miles, was an American rock and funk drummer, most known as a founding member of The Electric Flag in 1967, then as a member of Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys from 1969 through to January 1970.
    George Allen Miles was born in Omaha, Nebraska on September 5, 1947. He was known as a child prodigy, originally playing drums in his father, George Miles, Sr.'s, jazz band, The Bebops, beginning at age 12. Miles Sr. had played upright bass with Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Charlie Parker and Dexter Gordon.
    In his teens Miles Jr. was often seen hanging out as well as recording at the Universal Promotions Corporation (U.P.C.) recording studios, which later became Rainbow Recording Studios[ ]
    Miles was given the nickname Buddy by his aunt after the drummer Buddy Rich.
    Miles played in a variety of rhythm and blues and soul acts as a teenager, including Ruby & the Romantics, the Ink Spots, the Delfonics and Wilson Pickett. By 1967 he moved to Chicago where he formed the Electric Flag with guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Nick Gravenites was the vocalist on this (and also some other Bloomfield LP's). The blues-soul-rock band made their live debut at the Monterey Pop Festival in mid 1967 and released their debut Columbia album, A Long Time Comin', early the next year (1968). Miles sometimes sang lead vocals for the group in addition to playing drums. The group broke up after their second album An American Music Band (late 1968) and Miles formed The Buddy Miles Express, with Jim McCarty, later the guitarist for Cactus. A Greatest Hits album by The Electric Flag was issued in 1971 by Columbia. In 1974 The Electric Flag reformed briefly and released the Atlantic album The Band Kept Playing.
    After Electric Flag Miles began a closer musical relationship with Hendrix and after Buddy Miles Express split up, Miles would begin the collaboration with the rock legend Jimi Hendrix, and bassist Billy Cox that produced the Band of Gypsys Lp. Miles had met Jimi Hendrix in an earlier time, when Miles was only sixteen and both were acting as sidemen for other artists in the early '60s. The meeting had occurred in Canada in 1964, at a show both were participating in.
    Miles said of his first meeting with Hendrix: He was playing in the Isley Brothers band and I was in Ruby and the Romantics ... [Jimi] had his hair in a pony-tail with long sideburns. Even though he was shy I could tell this guy was different. He looked rather strange, because everyone else was wearing uniforms and he was eating his guitar, doing flip-flops and wearing chains.[2] Although all photographs, (and there are several of him with the Isley Bros), of Hendrix playing in bands prior to his move into Greenwich Village, in late 1966, as 'The Blue Flame' show him wearing band uniform, with no sideburns to speak of and only fashionable, moderately longish processed hair, certainly nothing you could tie in a pony tail. This prefaced a later friendship that would result in several jams and the occasional unreleased recording with Hendrix. In 1967, Hendrix and Miles jammed at the Malibu home of Stephen Stills, and went on to play together again at various times, in both Los Angeles and New York in 1968. Hendrix occasionally joined Electric Flag on stage[citation needed]. On the recordings for Electric Ladyland Hendrix used some guest artists, one of them being Buddy Miles who played on the songs Rainy Day, Dream Away and Still Raining, Still Dreaming, which are actually the same long jammed song cut in half with 1983 a Merman I Should Turn To Be edited in between.
    In 1969 Hendrix found time to write a short poem as a liner note to Expressway To Your Skull and to later produce four of the tracks on its follow up Electric Church, the two studio Lp's released by Buddy Miles Express. The title of the latter Lp being taken from Hendrix's poem on the first. There was also obvious public curiosity as to whether the name of the band Buddy Miles Express was influenced by Hendrix's act, Jimi Hendrix Experience.
