    Stevie Wonder was deep in his bag on this album. Pure perfection all the way through. I recently purchased it on vinyl, and I'm vibing out this good Sunday morning as I get some work done 🖤🙏🏾.

    the daily more ancient tv shows + bangladesh, 7-22-21

    . . . The Purging Lutheran vs. the guest room bed. It was a tie. . What were you watching as a young lad/ladette back yonder in the 60s? These shows are somewhat negative, spiritually speaking. . . Is anyone at all surprised that Fred Aistaire is the perfect choice to play ‘Satan’? . Good morning, Bangladesh! Thank you for reading. . . .

    “Under the Volcano” Streams July 26

    - Doc looks at George Martin’s AIR Studios Montserrat

    After he was Fab, George Martin took AIR to Montserrat.

    The Beatles’ producer opened his island-paradise studio in 1979 and from there helmed records by Elton John, the Police, Dire Straits, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder and others before a volcanic eruption ended “the greatest music studio of the ’80s.”

    “It was a glorious dream that George Martin had,” Paul McCartney says in the trailer for “Under the Volcano,” which streams beginning July 26.

    The film uses contemporary interviews and previously unseen archival footage to paint a picture of what Stewart Copeland calls “this paradise, which we soon turned into a living hell.”

    Though Copeland is talking about the fractious nature of Police recordings sessions, paradise did turn to hell after a volcano ended AIR Studio’s Montserrat’s decade-long run. But Martin was sanguine.

    ”Everything has a period,” he says in the two-minute clip.

    “You bring something out of nothing and it always goes back to nothing again.”

    Father of a daughter (or daughter of a father)? Here are 60 of the best tunes to share together

    Father of a daughter (or daughter of a father)? Here are 60 of the best tunes to share together

    Twenty-three years ago I got a big surprise. Well, the surprise game a little longer ago than that, but it arrived in June 1998 in the form of a baby girl. My wife and I had been trying to have a child, and I really wanted a boy. When I found out that we were having a girl I was a bit disappointed — for about a minute. But then I started to think about being the daddy of a precious little…

    Movie Review: “Summer of Soul ( … or, when the revolution could not be televised)”

    For 50 years, footage of Malahia Jackson and Mavis Staples singing “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” into a single mic sat unseen in a basement.

    No more.

    It’s just one of a staggering number of monumental performances - “the time of my life,” Staples calls it - in “Summer of Soul ( … or, when the revolution could not be televised),” the directorial debut from Questlove that chronicles the long-forgotten Harlem Cultural Festival that took place over six weekends in the summer of 1969.

    Known colloquially as the Black Woodstock, the festival was professionally recorded. But the 40 hours of footage sat unused and unknown for a half-century until Questlove got his hands on it.

    Musa Jackson, who attended the festival as a child, but like the rest of America never saw these recordings, serves as a collective consciousness as cutaways of him watching the raw footage appear throughout and alongside other fresh interviews with attendees and performers.

    “I’m not crazy,” he says though tears toward the end of the film, as if he’d always doubted whether his memories of crushing on the 5th Dimension’s Marilyn McCoo and seeing a sea of black faces in Mt. Harris Park were real.

    Quest wraps the performances around the society of the time as the black community struggled with poverty, joblessness, institutional racism and the assassinations of the Kennedys, Malcolm X and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. As one observer puts it, the festival was New York’s attempt “to keep black folks from burning up the city in ’69.”

    The performers burned up the stage, however. Here’s Stevie Wonder playing a drum solo. There’s Nina Simone demanding “Are you ready, black people?” And here comes Gladys Knight & the Pips with “I Heard it Through the Grapevine.”

    “It wasn’t just about the music,” Knight says in a contemporary interview. “We wanted progress. … We want our people lifting us up.”

    B.B. King. The Chambers Brothers. The Staple Singers. Herbie Mann. Max Roach. Hugh Masekela. Sly & the Family Stone. They - and a slew of others - are all there in clips ranging from mere snippets (King) to significant chunks of multiple songs (the Family Stone).

    And this is where “Summer of Soul” both triumphs and stumbles slightly. As a documentarian, Questlove did an exceptional job of weaving the societal into the musical to paint a complete picture of Harlem in 1969.

    But the film does leave viewers wanting more of the performances. A sequel and/or an exhaustive soundtrack recording could remedy the situation just as Quest remedied this instance of black-history erasure.
