Santana – “Soul Sacrifice” – 1969 Woodstock Live Video HQ   Leave a comment

— Carlos Santana, who claims that during this song he was so high on mescaline that the guitar was turning into a snake, and the fret board was moving around so much he was just hoping to God he could hold onto the damn thing. —

Santana was one of the many performers who wanted to be stoned at the show, and he made sure to arrive with some mescaline on hand. “When we first got there, around eleven in the morning, they told us we weren’t going on until eight,” he told Rolling Stone in 1989. “So I said, ‘Hey, I think I’ll take some psychedelics, and by the time I’m coming down, it’ll be time to go onstage and I’ll feel fine.’ But when I was peaking around two o’clock, somebody said, ‘If you don’t go right now, you’re not gonna go on.'”
He bravely took the stage and played an amazing set, though if you watch the video, it’s a little obvious he’s on something.
— Rolling Stone

JJ Cale – “To Tulsa And Back”   Leave a comment

There’s not really a plot, since this is a Documentary. In my opinion, it’s a very good, very entertaining, documentary of the second half of the 2004 JJ Cale Band tour. I’m Rocky, the piano player in the band. It’s really accurate, factual and honest. Cale has somehow got a reputation as a recluse, which is undeserved. The fact is: he has always avoided fame, since he thinks, correctly, that fame gets in the way of freedom and friendship. For this film, he set that aside and stepped out for his fans and friends. The John Cale I have known since 1957 is the John Cale you will see in this film. Many of the mysteries people have been curious about are made plain, even the true story of where the nickname “JJ” came from (the story in the various “Histories of Rock” is inaccurate). There’s plenty of really good concert footage and some charming episodes of just John, doodling on guitar and singing his songs, in parking lots and back rooms. You will get to know the supporting cast, from band members to sound guys and roadies, members of the management team and friends sitting in. This DVD is an absolute must for anybody who was ever curious about the man behind the music they love. I think the fact that the film crew came over from Munich added much to the effectiveness of the film, since they were obviously charmed by Americans and the American countryside. There’s also footage from the 2004 Crossroads Festival, from the first half of the tour, and interviews with Eric Clapton, who sat in with us on the Saturday.
