Tony Joe White, Rainy Night in Georgia, 1 969

Dans la catégorie idoles de la musique qui ont traversé les décennies
et qui sont aimés par toutes les couches sociales, la France a Johnny et
autres, les USA par exemple ont Tony Joe White, Johnny Cash, et pas mal
d’autres.
C’est pas une catégorie au-dessus, mais deux cent. C’est
pas en lançant des produits avec des reprises de succès anglo-saxons
qu’on arrive à rivaliser avec les vrais, même si, pour cette chanson par
exemple, y avait un truc marrant à faire avec “Une Pluvieuse Nuit sur Georges”.

Focus, Why Dream, 1 970

One more crystalline and musically (about lyrics, it’s the opposite)
full of hope gem by the fantastic Dutch band Focus, who should be
legendary, but they are only admired by a bunch of rock aficionados. As
in the wonderful Sugar Island (about Cuba), the mix between lightness
and stark observation of the state of things is striking and efficient.

Focus, Why Dream

Jeff Buckley, Dream Brother, 1 994

One of my very favorite songs by the master Jeff on his historic only official record before he died, so young, in a river.
5 minutes of pure pleasure starting with arpeggios and the crystalline voice of Jeff, with hints of bass and drums.

At 1.50 the masterpiece starts to appear, with the brilliant change,
for about 25 seconds, then we come back to a prolongation of the
prelude, which announces an absolutely incredible portion with change of
guitar sound in the arpeggios, plus added saturated solo guitar, before
the final lull.

Shivering, so long after the release.
