One of the great lights of the " Musical Heavens " just went out. But oh what a brilliance and glow it had; and how more beautifully the world was enhanced by it's illumination!

Thank you Ravi Shankar ! :idea:

What a great video Clemsy. The art work is visually stunning as well and really compliments the lyrics perfectly.

If I may offer a compliment piece this was the first " Supershow " benefit of it's kind done in Madison Square Garden in 1971. Many of rock's legendary royalty were there along with the artists we have mentioned; and it still represents a model which shows what can be done when " The Call " is raised for a " Great Need " to be answered. " The Concert for Banglahdesh ":

Clemsy; :lol:

I started to post this but was torn between it and the other. ( Awesome )

There are quite a few video's of this show on youtube than these 2 clips. ( I wonder if anyone out there can recognized lineup? ) 8)

For capturing the essence of the period this show would be hard to beat; ( IMHO of course. :wink: ) Here are a couple of more clips to illustate:

One wonders how relevant to today's " global activity " the message of compassion that this event displayed has and will become? :idea:

What about some airing along River Seine on a gloomy Paris evening
with trio Rivière Noire (Orlando Morais, Pascal Danaë et Jean Lamoot) ?

Nermin that was beautiful.

Here is a 60 minutes segment that was just rerun tonight done on a mysterious artist-songwriter no one here in the US had ever heard of but whose music helped inspire a nation. This inspiring story has magically resurrected after 4 decades because of a documentry called: " Searching for Sugarman ". He is truely a ( workingman's hero ) and his name is " Rodrigez ":

Thanks James,

What a story for reflection in a culture that wants it all right now. Seems like a pretty good example of following your bliss to me 8)

Very very inspiring, James.
So few people today are fortunate enough to discover an aspect of life far beyond the chronic razzledazzle of show business
and all that gooky glamour. Then, who needs a Ferrari and who needs fame?

Thanks everyone, I liked it too.

The movie itself is even better. I thought the fact that he went and got a degree in philosophy was pretty cool; and I especially liked his reference about the dignity of hard work and being poor. The importance of " Nobility of spirit " is something that our culture must always be reminded about. ( That's why I like being around all my friends like you guys here at the forums. :wink: )

Merry Christmas all! :D

Guest what everyone!

Santa came by this afternoon and dropped off an extra special holiday treat for those interested. This is a link to a PBS special documentry just shown that commemorates the 45th aniversary of the Beatles TV Special from 1967 which the soundtrack became one of their most famous records; ( " Magical Mystery Tour " ):

http://video.pbs.org/video/2309390406

( This was followed by a showing of the actual restored film for which unfortunately no link was posted. )

( Enjoy; Truely Awesome! ) 8)

Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.
