Musical palate cleanser, it’s alright now edition

I’m dating myself here, but how many of you remember the hoopla surrounding the Concert for Bangladesh?  I mean, even Dylan showed up for it.

Lots of great music from that show, but this has always been my favorite.

    I’m glad they left off George’s laconic introduction: “Here’s a couple of numbers from Leon.” For the first time since 1969, George Harrison of the superhuman Beatles was upstaged by a fellow performer. All joking aside, Leon’s medley was the high point of the Concert.

    Saw Leon at The Foundry here in Athens about a year before he passed. What a performer.

    Leon and the Mad Dogs and Englishmen played in Huff Gym at the U of I and they didn’t have a stage, just a riser, and i was able to lean on his piano and shoot the shit with him between songs. You want to see a weird movie about him try A Poem Is a Naked Person by Les Blank. Leon didn’t like it or Blank so he wouldn’t let him release it. When Blank died his son got with Leon and released it. You get to see a snake eat a chicken and a guy eat a glass at a dirt track race.

    Lennon was supposedly willing to perform, but not without Yoko.
