Short post, short song … but when Lowell George puts his pen on it, it’s heavy with musical mojo! This is from Little Feat’s first album Continue reading “I’ve Been The One (George), Mark Urso”
So, I saw a great band, and they did this song, so I went home and figured it out. The only problem is, I’m not as great as they are!
But I’m trying! Playing with a Boss VE-8 Acoustic Singer pedal, with no amp. The electric guitar is plugged into the pedal, which goes into my recording DAW. The pedal arrangement on the VE-8 is quite excellent. In all my time playing with audio equipment, I’ve never Continue reading “Love Yourself (Sheeran) – Mark Urso”
A beautiful song by Travis Tritt covered by yours truly! Country music fans take notice! That means you, dad!
Anymore was released in September 1991 as the second single from Tritt’s album It’s All About to Change. It peaked at number 1 in both the United States and Canada, becoming his second number-one hit in the United States, and his fourth number-one in Canada.

BLM and Antifa Violence in the Streets
This should kick some memories in.
While you’re watching, be careful if you’re leaning to the left.
This’ll make you fall over.
The whole “King of News” post from YouTube, including “read more” details and video footage, is below. It highlights the energy in 2017, which was freely allowed. Many who were arrested during this event and over the past four years, were protected and released by police. The treatment of the entire group of leftists, violent protesters, antifa and BLM scum has been the polar opposite of the treatment of conservative voters and protesters.
Today’s inauguration prep in Washington DC looks like a dictatorship. All we’d need is unfair treatment of the opposition and secretive behavior by the media.
Welcome to YouTube Mister King, and we wish you a long and fruitful Continue reading “The King of News Speaks the Truth, Posting 2017 Inauguration Violence Footage”
The Bring It All Back Session
This was basically a practice session. Three songs I’m working on: Robert Palmer’s “Blackmail,” from “Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley“ (debut, 1974), S Club’s “Bring it All Back“ (Debut, 1999) and UB40’s “Bring Me Your Cup” from 1993’s standout “Promises and Lies.”
I was twelve when the Robert Palmer album came out! I was always an early adopter of cool stuff! The song “Blackmail” was written by Palmer and Lowell George; George would become one of my musical heroes! It was down and dirty disco rock, unabashed, surrounded by girls in short dresses – Continue reading “Blackmail, Bring It All Back, Bring Me Your Cup (Music Videos)”

A music video from the recent past!
I’m testing hosting this video on WordPress. The other options include YouTube, which I currently use, Vimeo, which is a strangely-set up thing and self-hosting on my Netsol space, which I will try next. This week web hosting became a partisan issue. Who would have thought?
