Great piece, ponderosa!  One of my favorite movies.  Eric Idle almost looked like Roger Daltry in that scene.

Was at a Dead show back in the 80's. Guy walks up and starts dancing with this woman who had been dancing the night away in front of me and my buds. During a break she asks him...

"What's your name?"

"Emerson."

"Emerson?"

"'Em er some nice titties ya got there."

I gave the new Shelby Lynne disc covering Dusty Springfield a listen and was very impressed.

Thanks much for that, ponderosa.  Did anything in particular bring it to your mind?

Ah, but were it only one particular thing.  Undecided

Don't remember if it was the paper, a blog, or the tv news, but MLK's "Injustice anywhere is a threat everywhere..." came up. I thought Mr. Burke (or whoever wrote the piece) did justice (pardon da pun, if it actually is one) to the meaning behind the phrase.

Try some music by the wonderful Mavis Staples to go along with the Soloman Burke: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIa8pq8Pr6c

There is a lot more from Mavis where that came from. She walked the walk and lived the life, along with her late-father, Pops Staples.
