    Fooled Around And Fell In Love - Elvin Bishop 1975 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" was released in 1975 on Elvin Bishop's album, Struttin' My Stuff. If asked what my favorite song of all time is, this is one of maybe 5 songs that I'm likely to answer (recently completed a video for another one, "The Air That I Breathe").....for 3 reasons; Elvin Bishop plays one of my favorite guitar solos, Mickey Thomas delivers a truly extraordinary vocal performance....and no matter what I'm doing or where I am, if I hear this song, I'm lost to it until the final note! ;-) Just such a great, great track, on of the touchstone tracks of my life, it takes me right back to the carefree days of my youth, when the slowly billowing white clouds and bright yellow sun filled the the brilliantly blue sky overhead while we swayed on the raft in the middle of the huge swimming pool at Ft. Clark Springs....when A.M. radio held sway over the airwaves and songs like "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" were always in our ears making us smile! I give this song 5 :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)!!! Couldn't resist starting the music vid with one of the all time great music cues...Dirk Diggler's flip into the pool as "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" starts. As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who's art made this new art possible....THANK YOU!!!! And as always, THANK YOU FOR WATCHING! [Lyrics] I must have been through about a million girls I'd love 'em then I'd leave 'em alone I didn't care how much they cried, no sir Their tears left me cold as a stone But then I fooled around and fell in love I fooled around and fell in love, yes I did I fooled around and fell in love, I fooled around and fell in love It used to be when I'd see a girl that I liked I'd get out my book and write down her name But when the grass got a little greener over on the other side I'd just tear out that page I fooled around and fell in love I fooled around and fell in love, since I met you baby I fooled around and fell in love, I fooled around and fell in love Free, on my own is the way I used to be Ah, but since I met you baby, love's got a hold on me It's got a hold on me now, I can't let go of you baby I fooled around and fell in love I fooled around and fell in love, oh yes I did I fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fell in love Fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fooled around, fell in love I fooled around, fell in love I fell in love, I fell in love, yes I did

    Year Of The Cat - Al Stewart 1976 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    Turn off the white, venture into the archives and experience and explore the art of MetalGuruMessiah in a different, more compelling and pleasing way: https://metalgurumessiah.wordpress.com/ ***This is a update of my original video from 2013 which I completed for Phil Kenzie (the guy who played the saxophone solo on this track (and "Time Passages")....and who worked with everyone from The Beatles, Al Stewart, David Bowie, The Eagles, Rod Stewart, Black Sabbath, Alan Parsons....and on and on and on!) Phil has a new tour S.O.S.S. (Save Our Sax Solo) where he and his crack band are going out and playing some of the great rock and roll songs featuring great sax solos! The premiere show was last night (January 15th) in Boca Raton....anyone attending let us know how awesome it was. Hopefully we'll see more dates announced soon! For this version of the video I wanted to edit in more bits of the band/video, reduce the repetitiveness (some!), clean up the effects so they show less noise/artifacts (and look even better in HD 1080p), and give it a bit more of the watercolor/paintbrush style I couldn't quite pull of with the first one. Year Of The Cat was the title track from Al Stewart's seventh studio album which was released in the summer of 1976. The album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and engineered by Alan Parsons. This song is very special to me....in my top 5 of all time. The songwriting, Al's vocals, the guitar work is outstanding (Peter White plays the acoustic solo and Tim Renwick follows with the electric solo), Peter Wood's piano was so important that he received a co-writing credit.....yeah it's all top-notch work, but I think the thing that really made the song shine and made it such a stand-out classic was that gorgeous, melodic Phil Kenzie sax solo. The cover design, by Hipgnosis and illustrator Colin Elgie, depicts a woman who has an apparent obsession with cats. She can be seen in the mirror dressing up as a cat for a costume party, and all of the items on her dresser have feline motifs. It's always a treat to work on videos that feature some of that iconic Hipgnosis artwork.....I couldn't begin to count the hours I spent scrutinizing some of the incredible Hipgnosis artwork as the record was spinning away on my turntable. I have some very interesting things in the pipe for you other Hipgnosis aficionados out there! Stay tuned. Special thanks to: Annika Ritter Photography for her amazing watercolor that was the basis of my concept for the video http://arfotografie.wordpress.com/2013/01/07/watercolor-portrait/ [Lyrics] On a morning from a Bogart movie In a country where they turn back time You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running like a watercolour in the rain Don't bother asking for explanations She'll just tell you that she came In the year of the cat She doesn't give you time for questions As she locks up your arm in hers And you follow 'till your sense of which direction Completely disappears By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls There's a hidden door she leads you to These days, she says, I feel my life Just like a river running thru The year of the cat Well, she looks at you so cooly And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea She comes in incense and patchouli So you take her, to find what's waiting inside The year of the cat Well, morning comes and you're still with her And the bus and the tourists are gone And you've thrown away the choice and lost your ticket So you have to stay on But the drum-beat strains of the night remain In the rhythm of the new-born day You know sometime you're bound to leave her But for now you're going to stay In the year of the cat

    Dust In The Wind - Kansas 1977 FLAC Audio 1080p Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    With at least 200 billion galaxies out there (and possibly even more), we're very likely talking about a Universe filled with around 10 to the 24th planets, or, for those of you who like it written out, around 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets in our observable Universe. I want to send my regards to everyone sharing this amazing one with me. All we are is dust in the wind.....love and spirit are the only thing that cannot be blown away. Peace, love n happiness y'all! "Dust in the Wind" was released on Kansas' fifth studio album, Point of Know Return, in October 1977. The track was hugely popular from the moment it was released, and rightfully so I believe as it is an outstanding melody with simple yet profound lyrics. Was hoping to get something for the New Year, and this seemed a good choice...not the fireworks I was thinking about, but a more reflective piece for starting the new year. Wishing you all a great 2018 and beyond! This vid features FLAC audio from the Austria/Holland original CD release (which is less compressed than other CD versions....only slightly less than the original vinyl!)....once again, I've only barely nudged the equalizer to get what sounds best (IMO). Thanks for listening/watching/commenting/up-voting/adding to playlists/sharing...appreciate the support. Think about giving a listen to another great Kansas track that always seemed to me kinda a continuation of this one. Where "Dust in the Wind" was about the earthly experience; "Ghosts" continued with the move into the spiritual experience; "Ghosts" from Kansas' In The Spirit of Things album from 1988: https://youtu.be/pcbqPUOrdPI My first video from Point of Know Return was "Portrait (He Knew)"...another fav Kansas tune, thinking I might push out an update for it soon: https://youtu.be/KwQJaBGc9Dk From Wiki: Singer/songwriter Steve Walsh left the group briefly. He would admit that, at this point, he had been something of a prima donna in an interview with nationally syndicated radio host Redbeard on the weekly rockumentary series In the Studio with Redbeard. The album is critically acclaimed for singles like "Point of Know Return". "Point of Know Return" was a later addition to the album. "Portrait (He Knew)" was written about Albert Einstein. In 1988, Livgren released an updated version of "Portrait (He Knew)" titled "Portrait II" as part of the album Prime Mover credited to his band AD. He changed the subject of the song from Einstein to Jesus Christ. "Closet Chronicles" is a Howard Hughes allegory. "Dust in the Wind" is known for its sparse acoustic nature. The guitar line for the song was written by Kerry Livgren as a finger exercise for learning fingerpicking. His wife, Vicci, heard what he was doing, remarked that the melody was nice, and encouraged him to write lyrics for it. Livgren was unsure whether his fellow band members would like it, since it was a departure from their signature style. However he did offer it to them, and the song was accepted and then recorded. Rolling Stone gave the album a mixed review, saying that though the transition to shorter songs generally works, the lyrics are "a wan and ridiculous rehash of the bargain-basement exoticism employed by the British art-rock crowd." They commented that though the band lacks a virtuoso soloist, the band's ensemble playing is strong and purposeful. Point of Know Return would be Kansas' highest charting album in the US, peaking at #4 in January 1978, and would sell four million copies in the US and be certified Quadruple Platinum by the RIAA. During a debate of greatest "Song 1 Side 1" in history among the lead characters in the movie High Fidelity, Jack Black's character criticizes one of John Cusack's character's proposals as "too obvious, like 'Point of Know Return'". The album cover has become an iconic image from the album rock era, appearing on the background of the set of VH1 Classic, on tee shirts worn by characters in movies and on TV, and in other places. [Lyrics] [Verse 1] I close my eyes, only for a moment And the moment's gone All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity Dust in the wind All they are is dust in the wind [Verse 2] Same old song, just a drop of water In an endless sea All we do crumbles to the ground Though we refuse to see Dust in the wind All we are is dust in the wind [Bridge] Oh, ho, ho [Instrumental Break] [Verse 3] Now, don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy Dust in the wind All we are is dust in the wind [Outro] All we are is dust in the wind Dust in the wind Everything is dust in the wind Everything is dust in the wind The wind

    Space Oddity - David Bowie 1969 HD 1080p ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    [Lyrics] Ground Control to Major Tom Ground Control to Major Tom Take your protein pills and put your helmet on Ground Control to Major Tom (Ten, Nine Eight, Seven, Six) Commencing countdown, engines on (Five, Four, Three, Two) Check ignition and may God's love be with you (One, Liftoff) This is Ground Control to Major Tom You've really made the grade And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare This is Major Tom to Ground Control I'm stepping through the door And I'm floating in a most peculiar way And the stars look very different today For here Am I sitting in a tin can Far above the world Planet Earth is blue And there's nothing I can do Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles I'm feeling very still And I think my spaceship knows which way to go Tell my wife I love her very much... she knows Ground Control to Major Tom Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you.... Here am I floating round my tin can Far above the moon Planet Earth is blue And there's nothing I can do. "Space Oddity" was released on David Bowie's second album (considered by many as "the first Bowie album proper") in the winter of 1969 in U.K.. The original title of the record in the U,K. was "David Bowie" (his second eponymous album as his first one was also eponymously titled....it gets even more confusing!) and in the U.S. the record was titled "Man of Words/Man of Music". The BBC featured the song in its television coverage of the Apollo 11 launch and lunar landing, which took place in the days following the release of the song. "Space Oddity" became so well known that the album was renamed after the track for its 1972 U.S. reissue by RCA Records, and has since become known by this name. For the 1999 CD reissue the original UK cover was restored, although the new title was added under the portrait to avoid further confusion. The 2009 40th Anniversary edition also uses the original UK cover, but reverts to the original green tint and 'David Bowie' title. Even though I have always known this album by "Space Oddity", I have opted to present the original art as restored for it's 40th Anniversary release (and from which this incredible STEREO mix was taken), for the album credits. I did however use the more iconic art for the video imagery itself as it's infinitely more interesting and is especially well-suited for this song in particular. When I was maybe 12 or 13 I would listen until very late at night for the radio to play this strange song (or "American Pie", forever connected to this song since I was obsessing on them both at the same time in my life)....I was just crazy to hear it, it was so unique and unreal that it sounded like it was being transmitted from another planet! The release history of this song is very unusual, but it's through those various releases that this song basically made David Bowie's career. It's original 1969 release gave Bowie his first hit in the U.K (#5) though it stalled at #124 in the U.S. The re-release single in the U.S. in 1973 took it to #15 in the U.S. and #16 in Canada. The popularity of the release in America helped get a re-release in the U.K. in 1975 which gave David Bowie his first #1 hit in November. As I mentioned in the notes for my last Bowie efforts (a Low two-fer including "A New Career In A New Town" and "Be My Wife"), I was working to finish my next Low tune ("Always Crashing In The Same Car") AND that I'd also been playing with something for "Space Oddity" (as I get lots of requests for it), so one down...."Space Oddity"! ("Always Crashing In The Same Car" is right around the corner as well, for those other fans of the Low series)....this was a pretty simple vid...I considered more space clips, but as usual I really prefer limiting to just a few elements and then sequencing/masking them in up in various ways to achieve a more consistent looking video. Hoping you enjoy my effort for this absolute classic song!

This is another of those songs that you can almost remember the first time you heard it....it's so unique, cool!! Used to stay up half the night waiting for it to play on A.M. radio! I've had several requests to do a video for the tune, and although I didn't really plan on doing anything (since it already has a great official vid), but I kept thinking how great some cool driving video would be behind the tune. Once I started mixing it up with the original a bit, it went pretty fast....just a great tune to mess around with since there are so many cool cues to play with. As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who's art contributed to this new art....THANK YOU!!!!

    Why - Fleetwood Mac 1973 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    Visit MetalGuruMessiah's Musical Paint Box Channel for more! http://www.youtube.com/user/MetalGuruMessiah "Why" was released on Fleetwood Mac's eighth studio album, Mystery To Me, in the fall of 1973. This was their last album to feature Bob Weston. Most of the songs were penned by guitarist/singer Bob Welch and keyboardist/singer Christine McVie, who were playing a major role in edging the band's sound towards the radio-friendly pop/rock that would make them highly successful a few years later. Although the album only sold moderately and produced no hit singles, "Hypnotized" did become an FM radio staple for many years. In the wake of the Buckingham Nicks lineup's success a few years later, it achieved Gold status in 1976. I've always been a huge fan of Fleetwood Mac and of Christine McVie's contributions to that band especially. She wrote many extraordinary and beautiful songs, and "Why" is a classic example of both her songwriting and vocal abilities. This song to me always sounded like it belonged a couple of albums later, on one of the "new" Fleetwood Mac's classic rock masterpieces, rather than on "bluesy" Fleetwood Mac.....it's the first song to have that sound that became so familiar and massively popular during the classic years. This is another of the many that have been sitting around for an awfully long time...in fact, it's the first Fleetwood Mac video I started. The video is a pretty simple affair trying to match the tone of the song. If you've seen my "Songbird" video, you'll recognize some similarities...basically the masking of the exact two Christine McVie images. One of the things about fan vids, you don't have the resources that would come with the band's support.....would be awesome to have the ability to dig into the chest of high quality promotional images that must exist!.....until then, hope you like these two pictures of Christine...you're more than likely to see them again! ;-) Hope you enjoy....the beautiful, "Why". [Lyrics] There's no use in crying, it's all over But I know there'll always be another day Well my heart will rise up with the morning sun And the hurt I feel will simply melt away You make me feel, I just can't carry on But I know I won't always be that way 'Cos my heart will rise up with the morning sun And the hurt I feel will simply melt away You don't have to give up Why is it all wrong Why don't you love me Why won't you just be strong

Some Girls was unbelievable when it was first released.....the Stones were BACK! There were a few fans who the record didn't work for, of course it was somewhat expected in certain circles to blast anything sounding remotely disco by a rock act (typically the band would be accused of being "desperate" and/or "selling out" if they stooped to the level of following the disco trend), but most everyone seemed to love the funky, drive of "Miss You". The song not only features the band firing on all pistons...great vocal work by Jagger, typically impeccable performances from Stones rhythm section (really Bill Wyman's bass IS Miss You), wicked guitar from both Ronnie and Keith....but it also features wonderful contributions by Sugar Blue (harmonica) and Ian McLagen (electric piano) and a really fine saxophone solo by Mel Collins (as a former saxophone player myself, I'm especially fond of the work of the great rock n roll sax players, including; Mel, Phil Kenzie, Clarence Clemons, John Helliwell, Andy Mackay, Raphael Ravenscroft, Anthony Thistlethwaite, and others). This video features the full 12" Version that runs at 8:37 which was released in 1978 as the "Special Disco Version" and was the bands first dance remix 12-inch single. A shorter edit (about a minute) of the full mix exists (from 2005's rarities CD "Rarities 1971--2003") and was the most readily available version until the full mix was released in 2011 on The Complete Singles (1971-2006) Box. A few months back I made a video that combined two versions of another absolutely 100% stone groove from The Rolling Stones..."Dance (Pt. 1)" & "Dance (Pt. 2)". As I was making that video, I realized that I might pretty easily come back and mix it up a bit for "Miss You", since the style and length (of the 12" version) of the tunes is similar. For this one, you'll definitely see the earlier video in there....but lots more garish color, different images (great to get into Some Girl art!...I also couldn't resist pulling some effects I'd created for another earlier Stones video ("Melody") using art from Black and Blue).....and the dancing is still at 11! This was the kind of video where, as I go along I just keep finding more and more variations of effects, and by the time I've rendered an edit I've thought about even more new ones! After 7-8 fully edited video renders, I finally just had to stop. (I am bummed that I somehow lost a 6-7 second stretch of just the awesome slo-mo dancing girl somewhere around the slower middle section....I guess when I was chopping back for time?). Anyway, this is where it ended up....hope you enjoy it! As always HUGE THANKS to everyone who's art made this new art possible....THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

    In Thee - Blue Oyster Cult 1979 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "In Thee" was released in June 1979 on the sixth studio album by Blue Öyster Cult, Mirrors. This is the first Blue Öyster Cult album not produced by long-time producer and manager Sandy Pearlman. The album was not highly regarded by many BOC fans upon release, but I've always loved it and back in the day it probably got more than it's fair share of time on my turntable and in the car cassette player. I think it still sounds great today! Allen Lanier was an excellent musician and his contributions (especially that signature keyboard sound) were a big part of what made BOC special. He wrote some very good songs as well, including this one. I've been thinking about updating my ancient video for great track from Mirrors "The Vigil" https://youtu.be/l55NbooeUVY and it seemed a good excuse to upload a couple/few other favorites from the album. Hope you enjoy! The album is notable for a collaboration with British fantasy/science-fiction author Michael Moorcock, who co-wrote a song based on his novel The Fireclown. "The Great Sun Jester" is the first of several Moorcock co-writing credits with the band. After the success of 1976's Platinum Agents of Fortune, 1977's Gold Spectres and 1978's Platinum live effort Some Enchanted Evening, the fact that Mirrors struggled to reach Gold status was disappointing to band and label alike. According to interviews with the band and the production staff, the intent for this album was to make a high charting record with glossy production; however the backlash felt from this attempt was a reason for their future pairing with Martin Birch, and their attempt to return to a darker sound. "In Thee" was written by Allen Lanier. It went into the charts at No. 74. A live version is featured on their 1998 album Heaven Forbid, it features two acoustic guitars and was a popular "in concert" moment from this era. The line "Jim says some destinies should not be delivered" references the Jim Carroll Band song "Day and Night." [Lyrics] Maybe I'll see you again, Maybe And maybe I won't Maybe you bought your ticket going back to Detroit Air-o-plains make strangers of us all Give us distance Much to easily Jim says some destines should not be delivered But you and I see now Baby That still they are Winning it makes losers of us all Gives us distance Much to easily Well I wrap myself in cities I've traveled I wrap myself in dreams I wrap myself in solitude But I wish I could wrap myself in thee Tonight it's hot Without you tomorrow be cold Winter will come along Driven by snow Love it makes strangers of us all When we fall Oh so thoughtlessly Well I wrap myself in cities I've traveled I wrap myself in dreams I wrap myself in solitude But I wish I could wrap myself in thee Once we breathe the breath Of sweet surrender Pure, pure air of air Filled our atmosphere But night it makes stars of us all until we fall For everyone to see Well I wrap myself in cities I've traveled I wrap myself in dreams I wrap myself in strangers arms But I wish I could wrap myself in thee Well I wrap myself in cities I've traveled I wrap myself in dreams I wrap myself in solitude But I wish I could wrap myself in thee

    "Money" was released on Pink Floyd's 8th studio album, The Dark Side of the Moon in the winter of 1973. It was written by Roger Waters, and was the first track on side two of the LP. I had several special projects contending for my 500th! :-) video...either epic or unusual things I thought I might be motivated to finish. But I couldn't get any right so I stepped back into one I'd begun for "Money" a few years back. All I had started then was the night drive in Vegas with the falling coins and gold (and the dollar fall) over the cover art, (and the bit near the end that looks total different style!) and which were pretty cheesy, but I kept them anyway....no doubt they'll be among those choices I most regret after I upload the video! ;-) Hope you find it interesting visually...and for sure you'll enjoy the audio which was sourced from the Immersion Blu-ray...it's 96kHz/24 (and I just touched the equalizer). Released as a single, "Money" became the band's first hit in the United States, reaching number 10 in Cash Box magazine and number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was composed in 7/4, as stated by Gilmour in an interview with Guitar World magazine in 1993 and it changes to 4/4 time for an extended guitar solo. The first of three choruses which comprise the solo was recorded using real-time double tracking. Gilmour played the chorus nearly identically in two passes recorded to two different tracks of a multi-track tape machine. The second chorus is a single guitar. The doubled effect for the third chorus was created using automatic (or "artificial") double-tracking (ADT). To produce the distinctive piercing high notes that distinguish the final chorus of his solo, Gilmour played a customized Lewis guitar with twenty-four frets, allowing a full four-octave range. The lyrics are briefly referenced in the film Pink Floyd – The Wall, when the protagonist, Pink, is caught writing poems in class by his teacher. The teacher snatches the poem book from him and reads it in a very sarcastic, demeaning manner, practically encouraging Pink's classmates to laugh. The poem is a verse of lyrics to "Money". "Money interested me enormously," Waters remarked on the twentieth anniversary of Dark Side. "I remember thinking, 'Well, this is it and I have to decide whether I'm really a socialist or not.' I'm still keen on a general welfare society, but I became a capitalist. You have to accept it. I remember coveting a Bentley like crazy. The only way to get something like that was through rock or the football pools. I very much wanted all that material stuff." One of the most distinctive elements of "Money" is the rhythmic sequence of sound effects that begins the track and is heard throughout the first several bars. This was created by splicing together recordings Waters had made of clinking coins, a ringing cash register, tearing paper, a clicking counting machine and other items to construct a seven-beat effects loop. The Dark Side of the Moon was an immediate success, topping the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart for one week. It subsequently remained in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988, longer than any other album in history. With an estimated 50 million copies sold, it is Pink Floyd's most commercially successful album and one of the best-selling albums worldwide. It has twice been remastered and re-released, and has been covered in its entirety by several other acts. It spawned two singles, "Money" and "Time". In addition to its commercial success, The Dark Side of the Moon is one of Pink Floyd's most popular albums among fans and critics, and is frequently ranked as one of the greatest rock albums of all time. [Lyrics] [Coin Intro] [Verse 1: David Gilmour] Money, get away Get a good job with more pay and you're okay Money, it's a gas Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash New car, caviar, four-star daydream Think I'll buy me a football team [Verse 2: David Gilmour] Money, get back I'm all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack Money, it's a hit Don't give me that do goody good bullshit I'm in the high-fidelity first class travelling set And I think I need a Lear jet [Solo] [Verse 3: David Gilmour] Money, it's a crime Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie Money, so they say Is the root of all evil today But if you ask for a rise It's no surprise that they're giving none away Away away away Away away away [Interview excerpts] - Yeah -- (chuckles) -- I was in the right! - Yes, absolutely in the right! - I certainly was in the right! - Yeah, I was definitely in the right That geezer was cruising for a bruising! - Yeah! - Why does anyone do anything? - I don't know, I was really drunk at the time! - I was just telling him it was in, he could get it in Number Two.

    Who'll Stop The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival 1970 96KHz/24bit FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Who'll Stop The Rain" was released on Creedence Clearwater Revival's fifth studio album, Cosmo's Factory, on Fantasy Records in July of 1970. I've been working on a couple other "rain" videos, but decided to use some quick effects for this beautiful CCR tune so I could upload it on Veterans Day 2017. Thanks to all the vets who have served our great country....and to Creedence for their songs which so wonderfully captured the spirit of the Vietnam conflict and American experience related to it. I love CCR as much as the next guy (and who doesn't really? there can be no possible reason for not liking this band!) and I've wanted to make a few vids for some of the many great songs (how to choose!?) that are my favorites....one down! ;-) This was a VERY quick effort and I didn't take the usual amount of time and effort to scrub and clean the low-res vid sources I used (mainly the Woodstock stuff)....plus I knew I should take the time to find some Vietnam footage of soldiers in the rain to tie in, but....it's a shorter song, and I had enough to fill it out very quickly. Maybe for a future update, I'll make those adjustments and raise the level of the video a notch? This video does feature 96KHz/24bit FLAC audio though! Cosmo's Factory was released the same month as the single release of "Lookin' Out My Back Door" with "Long as I Can See the Light" on the B side. The name of the album comes from the warehouse in Berkeley where the band rehearsed early in their career. It was dubbed "The Factory" by drummer Doug "Cosmo" Clifford, because bandleader John Fogerty made them practice there almost every day. With the release of Cosmo's Factory in July 1970, Creedence Clearwater Revival hit their commercial zenith. It was their fifth album in two years and became an international smash, topping the album charts in six countries. The band also toured Europe in 1970, playing the Royal Albert Hall to enthusiastic audiences, and had emerged as the most popular band in America by largely ignoring the trippy acid rock indulgences that were typical of the era. However, despite the band's infectious blend of rockabilly, folk, and R&B, some peers and rock critics dismissed them as a singles band with no substance. In a 2012 cover story, Uncut observed, "While San Francisco longhairs across the bridge scoffed at their commercialism, Creedence henceforth made a point of releasing double A-sides. And invariably both songs would have an uncanny knack of cutting through to all sections of the population." Singer and guitarist Fogerty, who had seemingly arrived out of nowhere, but had actually struggled with his bandmates throughout most of the 1960s as the Blue Velvets and the Golliwogs, composed the group's songs and generally steered the band artistically, although his grip on the band – including his dubious role as manager – irritated the others, especially his older brother Tom Fogerty, who left the band by the end of 1970. In its original review, Rolling Stone opined, "It should be obvious by now that Creedence Clearwater Revival is one great rock and roll band. Cosmo's Factory, the group's fifth album, is another good reason why." AllMusic states, "On 'Long as I Can See the Light', the record's final song, he again finds solace in home, anchored by a soulful, laid-back groove. It hits a comforting, elegiac note, the perfect way to draw 'Cosmo's Factory' – an album made during stress and chaos, filled with raging rockers, covers, and intense jams – to a close." An editorial review from Amazon.com calls the album "the peak of a prolific streak." [Lyrics] Long as I remember, The rain been comin' down. Clouds of myst'ry pourin' Confusion on the ground. Good men through the ages Tryin' to find the sun. And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the rain. I went down Virginia, Seekin' shelter from the storm. Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow. Five-year plans and new deals Wrapped in golden chains. And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the rain. Heard the singers playin', How we cheered for more? The crowd had rushed together Tryin' to keep warm. Still the rain kept pourin', Fallin' on my ears. And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the rain.

    Another classic from Blue Oyster Cult's Spectres album, which was released in the winter of 1977, "Godzilla" is an prime example of the awesome guitar rock that this band was famous for. In this song, the Buck Dharma's stun-guitar work is.....well, stunning! LOL! The song has become one of the band's most popular songs and it a staple of their live performances. ***This was a very old video (#56) that was one of a few that had to come down for various reasons. I made some really quick edits to make it move a bit faster, but resisted a completely new video....if you remember the old one, you'll recognize this one! *****A quick re-edit including a few things that were bugging me...titles and album art now "running" in direction of people and fire trucks, a few more instances of the fast loops at the end of the sequence for balance, and the end titles now feature the drive-in effect as in the beginning (not that anyone watches them! LOL!). "Godzilla" is my second BOC video for a song which has been done numerous times before, but the obviousness of the match and fun that can be had in making a video, is just too hard to resist. These other versions of videos created from BOC's "Godzilla" and the famous reptile monster of the same name, have done a fine job....but like I said, it's just too much fun to resist.....so.....here ya go...."Godzilla"! As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who's art made this new art possible....THANK YOU!!! Special thanks to Directed by Ishirō Honda's Godzilla vs. Mothra from 1964....man, I used to love these movies!

    "Summer" was released as a single from their greatest hits album in the late spring of 1976. It was released as a single from their greatest hits album in 1976. "Summer" peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart, number four on the R&B chart. The track peaked at number one on the Easy Listening chart and was one of three entries to make the chart. The greatest hits album from which this single came was one of the records that I remember EVERYONE owned, on LP, 8-track, cassette....it was a staple for years. (Albums don't really live like this anymore do they? Now they're huge for a couple months and then basically vanished from the face of the earth?! ;-) Sad. The music all seems so disposable, such a short life-span, whereas our music was around for many years. Maybe it's just me being nostalgic and sentimental. Audio source is 2014 FLAC Remaster! Growing up in South Texas we probably listened to more than our fair share of War back in the day (they even wrote a song titled "Southern Part of Texas" on their Deliver the Word album!). This band could lock into a monster groove like few others really could, and "Summer" is the band's perfectly brilliant and hypnotic stroll through a long, lazy summer day. I'm so thankful I grew up in the time when there were 8-tracks and CB radios (these activities took more of a group effort; you had to spool the 8-track now and then and stick matches under the cartridge to get it to sound right and for the CB, we needed someone to operate the radio and everyone else to think of stupid things to say!!! LOL!)....in a time when we all interacted with each other more than we did our cell phones. Great times and great music! Lots of great pics in this one, so AS USUAL HUGE THANKS to everyone who's art made this new art possible....THANK YOU....and thank YOU for watching! :-) For War fans....more by this band a bit further down the road. The audio for this video was sourced from the 2014 remaster for the band's new album Evolutionary (which included Greatest Hits remastered)....and trust me, these classics have never sound so great. Buy it....you won't be disappointed. One more thing....where are all the lowriders? I think I know what happened....these guys used to work their rides themselves...these new kids can't even change a tire!? LOL! Peace sign!

    I'm Not In Love - 10cc 1975 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    Turn off the white, venture into the archives and experience and explore the art of MetalGuruMessiah in a different, more compelling and pleasing way: https://metalgurumessiah.wordpress.com/ "I'm Not In Love" was released on the third studio album, The Original Soundtrack, by the English art rock band 10cc. This is one of my all time favorite songs...still...ageless in its plaintive beauty. This song is kinda special for most of us that were growing up when this was popular, I was 14 when I first remember those sweet notes coming through the tinny little a.m. radio speakers....it never sounded better than it did way back then (when we had every star in the night sky to ourselves)! Audio sourced from SHM-CD FLAC Remaster! Several years ago, I'd taken a few clips from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)....(one of my favorite films from the 1960's...you could watch it just for the colors!) and started building this video around them. Last night when I was going through some old stuff to finish (trying not to start anything new until I move a bunch of the ones I've already started), I came across this and decided to just use the limited clips I'd taken and finish it up. I'd always intended to flush it out with a bit more stuff from the film, but of course my style is endless variations and repetitions anyway ;-), so I just used what I had...plus the song is so great that it makes everything special! ;-) Hope you enjoy the effort! Thanks for checking it out! It was released in 1975 and peaked at number four on the UK Albums Chart. The Original Soundtrack includes the singles "Life Is a Minestrone" and "I'm Not in Love", the latter of which is the band's most popular song. The song is noted for its innovative production, especially its richly overdubbed choral backing. The album was recorded and produced by the band at Strawberry Studios in 1974 with Eric Stewart engineering and mixing. The album received good reviews when originally released on LP and cassette by Mercury Records in March 1975. The artwork was designed by Hipgnosis and illustrated by artist Humphrey Ocean. The album was the first to be released by Mercury Records after signing the band for $1 million in February 1975. The catalyst for the deal was the fact the record executives had heard one song – "I'm Not in Love". Eric Stewart recalled: "At that point in time we were still on Jonathan King's label, but struggling. We were absolutely skint, the lot of us, we were really struggling seriously, and Philips Phonogram wanted to do a deal with us. I rang them. I said come and have a listen to what we've done, come and have a listen to this track. And they came up and they freaked, and they said, "This is a masterpiece. How much money, what do you want? What sort of a contract do you want? We'll do anything, we'll sign it." On the strength of that one song, we did a five-year deal with them for five albums and they paid us a serious amount of money." The Original Soundtrack was a critical and commercial success reaching No. 4 in the UK and No.15 in the U.S. Ken Barnes gave the album a rave review in Rolling Stone, commenting, "Musically there's more going on than in ten Yes albums, yet it's generally as accessible as a straight pop band (though less so than the two preceding 10cc LPs)." He particularly praised the album for being ambitious without being excessive or pretentious, and for its lyrical content. Robert Christgau panned the album, remarking of the song "I'm Not in Love": "stretching your only decent melody (a nonsatirical love song) over six tedious minutes, is that a joke?" The first single "Life Is a Minestrone" was another UK Top 10 for the band, peaking at No. 7. Their biggest success came with the song that sold the album, "I'm Not in Love", which gave the band their second UK No. 1 in June 1975, staying there for two weeks. The song also provided them with their first major US chart success when the song reached No. 2. The album's most famous song, "I'm Not in Love", was built around a simple title by Stewart. [Lyrics] I'm not in love So don't forget it It's just a silly phase I'm going through And just because I call you up Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made I'm not in love, no no, it's because.. I like to see you But then again That doesn't mean you mean that much to me So if I call you Don't make a fuss Don't tell your friends about the two of us I'm not in love, no no, it's because.. I keep your picture Upon the wall It hides a nasty stain that's lying there So don't you ask me To give it back I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me I'm not in love, no no, it's because.. Ooh you'll wait a long time for me Ooh you'll wait a long time Ooh you'll wait a long time for me Ooh you'll wait a long time I'm not in love So don't forget it It's just a silly phase I'm going through And just because I call you up Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made I'm not in love I'm not in love

    Listen To The Music - The Doobie Brothers 1972 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Listen To The Music" was released in the summer of 1972 on The Doobie Brothers second album, Toulouse Street. The album name refers to the name of a street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This song is my favorite by The Doobie Brothers and is another one that takes me back to a very clear time and place of my youth. I always associate this song and album with my mom and dad's fancy (then!) new color t.v./record player in the living room. This thing was a monster....solid oak, huge speakers at each end and the top on each end opened up...one was the record player and the other was an A.M./F.M. 8-track (not much use for F.M. in my part of the world at that time since we were too far to pick up any signal.....but man San Antonio's king of A.M. radio KTSA was playing through that thing literally for years....basically anytime I didn't have a record spinning! LOL!). Toulouse Street is also one of my first favorite album covers...strangely stylish & unusual matte photography and the texture of the album cover itself was even different. In those days, they sometimes did unusual things with record covers...raised lettering, and textured paper. For anyone listening to this tune, not old enough to remember what I'm talking about....I guess you'd have had to have been there! ;-) Anyway....."Listen To The Music" remains one of my favorite classic rock tracks for all these reasons but mainly because it's just a really beautiful, groovy tune....one that's always guaranteed to make you feel better after you listen to it. This would have been a great video for my 200th upload (I already had another edited for that number or I would have made it so) since it perfectly reiterates and captures what drives me to make these videos....what it's all about for those of us for whom music is so much more than just music....these songs that have touched our souls and been a huge part of our lives.....LISTEN TO THE MUSIC! As usual SPECIAL THANKS to everyone who's art made this new art possible.....THANK YOU!!!!!

    Chance - Big Country 1983 Remastered FLAC Audio HD Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Chance" was released in the summer of 1983 on Big Country's debut studio album, The Crossing. Big Country remains one of my very favorite bands...from that first incredibly powerful, haunting album which sounded like nothing you'd ever heard before, up through the final ones they produced with the insanely underrated vocalist and writer Stuart Adamson. While most of my friends were playing the latest U2 monster album, I was usually listening to the increasingly unrecognized efforts from Big Country. I have one friend in particular who I still run into now and again and he often as not says something to the effect of "man, you used to you to U2 alot!"...and I'm always like; "It was BIG COUNTRY, fool...how many times I gotta tell ya!?" (Though in all fairness he might be thinking of a several month period where the War cassette never left the deck.....and i know I probably reversed "New Year's Day" http://youtu.be/p7n9itKuJh4 enough to sufficiently annoy the hell out of everyone!) LOL! Man....remember how back in the day we would all be fast forwarding or reversing our favorite tunes on 8-track or cassette....that high pitched screeching noise! ;-) I'm fond of some U2 tracks of course, but for me at least, Big Country was just way more impressive. Big Country has so many absolute gems scattered throughout their catalog (a way high ration of great to good songs on each album) which have been criminally overlooked, fortunately "Chance" isn't one of them, as it did receive some recognition for the group....an absolutely perfect song. I wanted to take the existing video for this track and try to highlight the constantly blending/crossing movement of the band...to make it "pop" a bit more. More Big Country favs on the way....till then hope you enjoy "Chance"! Thanks so much for watching! The Crossing is the first studio album released by Scottish band Big Country. The album reached #3 in the UK; overseas, it hit #4 in Canada on the RPM national Top Albums Chart and #18 in the US on the Billboard 200 in 1983. It went on to be certified platinum in the UK and Canada. It contains the song "In a Big Country" which is their only U.S. Top 40 hit single. The song featured heavily engineered guitar playing, strongly reminiscent of bagpipes; Adamson and fellow guitarist Watson achieved this through the use of the MXR Pitch Transposer 129 Guitar Effect. Also contributing to the band's unique sound was their use of the e-bow, a device which allows a guitar to sound more like strings or synthesizer. The album has been remastered and reissued on three occasions. The latest version released by Universal in 2012 in advance of the album's 30th anniversary includes a second disc of previously unissued demos. Also included in the set is a track produced by Chris Thomas from the first abortive attempt to record the band's debut album. The demos include the earliest recordings done by Adamson and Bruce Watson, some of which were recorded on four-track prior to recruiting either a drummer or bassist for the band. The set also includes a booklet with interviews (new in the case of the current band members and archived in the case of the late Stuart Adamson) by the journalist and author Tim Barr. Lyrics for all of the key songs are also included, and the album has been remastered by Paschal Byrne from the original master tapes. In total, ten previously unreleased tracks were included in the deluxe, digitally remastered edition. [Lyrics] All the rain came down On a cold new town As it carried you away From your father's hand That always seemed like a fist Reaching out to make you pay He came like a hero from the factory floor With the sun and moon as gifts But the only son you ever saw Were the two he left you with Oh Lord where did the feeling go Oh Lord I never felt so low Now the skirts hang so heavy around your head That you never knew you were young Because you played chance with a lifetime's romance And the price was far too long Oh Lord where did the feeling go Oh Lord I never felt so low Oh Lord where did the feeling go Oh Lord I never felt so low Oh Lord where did the feeling go Oh Lord I never felt so low Oh Lord where did the feeling go Oh Lord I never felt so low Oh Lord where did the feeling go Oh Lord I never felt so low

    A Hard Road - Black Sabbath 1978 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "A Hard Road" was released on the album Never Say Die!, the eighth studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath, in September 1978. It was the final Black Sabbath studio album until 2013's 13 to feature vocalist Ozzy Osbourne prior to his departure from the band in 1979, and the last full studio album to feature the band's original lineup. Critics called it unbalanced, scattering its energy in too many directions. Audio source 96KHz/24bit FLAC! I may be in the minority, but I've always thought this was a very cool Black Sabbath record, I especially like "A Hard Road", "Junior's Eyes" and "Air Dance"....I think the key to enjoying the album is to listen to each song as a single....cohesively the record is a mess for sure. In the UK the title track, released well ahead of the album, reached No. 21 in the chart and gave the band its first Top of the Pops appearances since 1970. In the UK the album reached No. 12, one place higher than its predecessor Technical Ecstasy. In the UK, "A Hard Road" was released as the second single from the album and reached the UK Top 40. The song marks the first and last time guitarist Tony Iommi sings backing vocals with Black Sabbath, explaining that when he sang, bassist Geezer Butler couldn't keep a straight face. The album received mostly negative reviews and is not held in high esteem today, with AllMusic referring to the album as "unfocused", saying it "will hold little interest to the average heavy metal fan." Rolling Stone says it was "not a blaze of glory for the original foursome" but added that it may be "better than people might remember". In 2013 Phil Alexander of Mojo referred to the album as "disastrous". In October 1978 Osbourne said "It's a combination of what we've all been through in the last ten years. It's a very varied album. We got rid of all our inner frustrations: what each of us individually wanted to put down over the years but couldn't because of the pressures of work. So we put a lot of painstaking hours into developing this album." However, Osborne quickly soured on the LP, telling After Hours in a 1981 interview "The last album I did with Sabbath was Never Say Die! and it was the worst piece of work that I've ever had anything to do with. I'm ashamed of that album. I think it's disgusting". He went on to claim that the band flew to Toronto in January during sub-zero temperature "purely because the Rolling Stones had recorded a live album there." In 2013, Osbourne told Mojo, "I'd go down to the studio and I heard what sounded like a jazz band playing. Is this really Black Sabbath? I'd just fuck off." Osbourne was fired by the band eight months later. Despite the negative reception, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil cited "Never Say Die!" as one of his favourite Black Sabbath albums. At the time of the recording of Never Say Die! the members of Black Sabbath were all heavily involved in drug and alcohol abuse. Prior to recording, vocalist Osbourne briefly quit the band and was temporarily replaced by former Savoy Brown and Fleetwood Mac vocalist Dave Walker. In 1992, guitarist Tony Iommi explained to Guitar World, "Right before we were supposed to record Never Say Die!, Ozzy quit the band. Osbourne eventually rejoined the band, but refused to sing any of the songs written with Walker. Iommi elaborated in the 1992 Guitar World piece, "two days before we were finally ready to record again, Ozzy decided to come back. But he wouldn’t sing any of the stuff we had written without him! Bill Ward had to sing on one track ("Swinging The Chain"). We ended up having to write in the day so we could record in the evening, and we never had time to review the tracks and make changes. As a result, the album sounds very confused." [Lyrics] Old men crying, young men dying World still turns as Father Time looks on On and on Children playing, dreamers praying Laughter turns to tear as love has gone Has it gone? Oh, it's a hard road Oh, it's a hard road Whirlwind churning, lovers learning On this path of life we can't back down Is it wrong? Widows weeping, babies sleeping Life becomes the singer and the song Sing along Oh, it's a hard road Carry your own load Why make the hard road? Why can't we be friends? No need to hurry We'll meet in the end Why make the hard road? Why can't we be friends? No need to worry Let's sing it again Brother's sharing, mother's caring Nightime falling victim to the dawn Shadows small Days are crawling, time is calling To the Earth another life is gone Love line drawn Oh, it's a hard road Carry your own load Oh, it's a hard road Oh, it's a hard road... Forget all your sorrow, don't live in the past And look to the future, `cause life goes too fast, you know Forget all your sorrow, don't live in the past And look to the future, `cause life goes too fast, you know Forget all your sorrow, don't live in the past And look to the future, `cause life goes too fast, you know...

    Crystal Ball - Styx 1976 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Crystal Ball" was the title track from Styx's sixth album, released in the fall of 1976. This album represented the recording debut of the band's new guitarist Tommy Shaw, who also took lead vocals on this track. Although the album stalled at #66 upon its 1976 release, it would go platinum in 1978 after the success of the next album The Grand Illusion. The track "Mademoiselle" was Tommy Shaw's vocal debut and the album's Top 40 hit. I guess I'd heard "Lady" before on A.M. radio, but it was "Mademoiselle" (also on A.M. radio) that I remember liking enough to pick up Crystal Ball and after one spin of the record, I knew this was a band that I'd be listening to alot! A very short time after picking up Crystal Ball, I also bought Equinox. I'd often play 4 sides of Styx straight! Of course this was all before The Grand Illusion launched the band into the stratosphere. I made my first Styx video for "Castle Walls" way back and have been wanting to upload another since then (especially since so many people seemed to enjoy the "Castle Walls" effort so much). I had actually started videos for two other Styx tunes ("Man In The Wilderness" and "The Grand Illusion") way before this one and fully expected to have one of those two finished before I started my fourth planned video for "Crystal Ball". Special thanks to Vladimir Kush ("Departure of the Winged Ship") Visit his site for amazing art! http://vladimirkush.com/ And of course HUGE THANKS to the artists whose work made this video possible! THANKS! Till next time....hope you enjoy!

    Drive - The Cars 1984 MFSL SACD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Drive" was released in March 1984 on The Cars' fifth studio album, Heartbeat City. I'm still on a Cars roll! ;-) This is a great great track and I've always wanted to play around with something for it. I really needed to spend more time adjusting the spiraling stars, etc. video clip as it's not blended quite right to be able to see the performance clip....I did get the traffic time-lapse effect video to work much better...actually the whole thing looked nice (and different) with just that effect and I almost went with that edit, but it got just a tad repetitive. Hope you enjoy the show! Thanks for checking it out! Heartbeat City was produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange. Picking up a positive commercial response, the Cars had many tracks getting airplay, and singles "Drive" and "You Might Think" in particular both became Top 10 hits. The album also received supportive reviews from several critics; for example, Robert Christgau stated that "the glossy approach the Cars invented has made this the best year for pure pop in damn near twenty, and it's only fair that they should return so confidently to form." Heartbeat City contains a total of five American Top 40 singles. Of these, "Drive" and "You Might Think" were also Top 10 hits, reaching the No. 3 and No. 7 positions, respectively. A number of songs from the album gained significant radio and TV exposure; most notably "You Might Think" and "Magic", which both received heavy airplay on MTV. The lead vocal on "Drive" was performed by bassist Benjamin Orr. The song's video was directed by actor Timothy Hutton. It features Ric Ocasek arguing with a troubled young woman played by model Paulina Porizkova (whom Ocasek would later marry). "Hello Again" had a video directed by the legendary Andy Warhol, who also appeared onscreen. The single "It's Not the Night" reached No. 31 on the rock charts. The song "Stranger Eyes" was used in the theatrical trailer of the 1986 film Top Gun, but it never made it into the soundtrack. "Looking for Love" was later covered by Austrian singer Falco as "Munich Girls" on his 1985 album Falco 3. When the Cars performed at Live Aid, they played three songs from the album ("You Might Think", "Drive", plus the album's title track) alongside the fan favorite "Just What I Needed". Robert John "Mutt" Lange's commitment to produce the Cars album meant that he told Def Leppard he could not work on their album, Hysteria. However, due to delays in that album's recording, Lange was eventually able to produce it. The cover art (including an image of a 1971 Plymouth Duster 340) is from a 1972 piece by Peter Phillips called Art-O-Matic Loop di Loop. [Lyrics] Who's gonna tell you when It's too late Who's gonna tell you things Aren't so great You can't go on Thinking nothing's wrong Who's gonna drive you home tonight Who's gonna pick you up When you fall Who's gonna hang it up When you call Who's gonna pay attention To your dreams Who's gonna plug their ears When you scream You can't go on Thinking nothing's wrong Who's gonna drive you home tonight Who's gonna hold you down When you shake Who's gonna come around When you break You can't go on Thinking nothing's wrong Who's gonna drive you home tonight Oh you know you can't go on Thinking nothing's wrong Who's gonna drive you home tonight

    "2112" - Rush 1976 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    Turn off the white, venture into the archives and experience and explore the art of MetalGuruMessiah in a different, more compelling and pleasing way: https://metalgurumessiah.wordpress.com/ "2112" was the epic title track on Rush's fourth album which was released in the spring of 1976. I came to Rush through this album and besides turning me on to a band that would remain one of my favorites for almost 4 decades, this record pushed me deeper into hard rock and progressive rock. I have played it, as I guess all serious Rush fans have, literally hundreds of times since I first heard it. There were some massively popular records back then, but the only other record I can think of where it seems everyone was playing for years in my hometown when I was in high school was maybe Boston's debut. Rush would release many more fine rock albums, but they would all always seem to point somehow back to 2112. In a career filled with fantastic albums, this remains their greatest achievement. It was almost surreal to hear it back in '76 (it was like music from another world (Megadon, maybe!?), listening to it now after decades of heavy rotation...it's still got the power to produce a few goosebumps! :-) Thank you RUSH for all those nights of carefree youth spent with the power and beauty of 2112 washing over us in waves. The video? Wow. After "Shine On You Crazy Diamond 1-9" and "Atom Heart Mother", I knew the epics were work. This one ended up much more difficult than I anticipated, much worse than those earlier ones, mainly because it is such an extremely dynamic track. I mean, it is riddled with so many unusual passages, it's fast, then slow, then faster, then extremely slow, then extremely fast and there are mini movements within the movements...the tempo changes and structure made for an extremely challenging effort. The track demands massive editing to work. I promise you this track will make you work to video it! As with the other epic videos, it was a nightmare to work with a video of such length; the timings are brutal to keep correct throughout, it's difficult to get everything right since it takes so long to render (and each render is always a bit different!), and of course, the video is so long it's a challenge to make it varied enough. It took me forever to get the thing to the point where the sequences were structured and the timings were close (each time I rendered this full video for timings, some sections would be perfect and others off..and I could never get each section correct at once!)...long enough that by then I was too burned out to create some different footage, and it would really be so easy at this point....just work some different things and plug them in where things are a bit repetitive (and I wanted to try some cool variations on the stuff already in)....but damn, I'm tired.....and as per normal, I ain't gettin' paid.....so, this is my "2112". I hope you enjoy it. Video snippets of the band are from the Blu-ray Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland.....if you are a RUSH fan and haven't picked up this DVD or Blu-ray....do.it.now! It's absolutely packed with great RUSH songs and incredible performances....and amazing video and sound! The best $20 Blu-ray you'll ever buy! Special thanks to Grimdrifter for the priests: http://grimdrifter.deviantart.com/ ....and as always HUGE THANKS to everyone else who's art made this new art possible....THANK YOU!

    Turn off the white, venture into the archives and experience and explore the art of MetalGuruMessiah in a different, more compelling and pleasing way: https://metalgurumessiah.wordpress.com/ "Question" was the opening track on The Moody Blues' sixth studio album, A Question of Balance, which was released in August 1970. This is a great Moodies track from a great Moodies album, nuff said. I hope you enjoy the effort! Thanks for watching! The album was an attempt by the group to strip down their well-known lush, psychedelic sound in order to be able to better perform the songs in concert. The album reached #1 in the United Kingdom and #3 in the United States. In March 2006 the album was remastered into SACD format and repackaged with six extra tracks. In 2008 a remaster for standard audio CD was issued with the same bonus tracks. The cover was changed slightly to hide the face of Colonel John Blashford-Snell who had objected to an image of an explorer wearing a pith helmet and wielding a Webley .455 pistol on the cover of the original LP, which he felt was derived from a photograph of himself. The relevant part of the cover was changed to show a generic individual in response to his law suit. [Lyrics] Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war? 'cause when we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need. In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed. Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door? Because the truth is hard to swallow That's what the war of love is for. It's not the way that you say it When you do those things to me. It's more the way that you mean it When you tell me what will be. And when you stop and think about it You won't believe it's true. That all the love you've been giving Has all been meant for you. I'm looking for someone to change my life. I'm looking for a miracle in my life. And if you could see what it's done to me To lose the love I knew Could safely lead me through. Between the silence of the mountains And the crashing of the sea There lies a land I once lived in And she's waiting there for me. But in the grey of the morning My mind becomes confused Between the dead and the sleeping And the road that I must choose. I'm looking for someone to change my life. I'm looking for a miracle in my life. And if you could see what it's done to me To lose the love I knew Could safely lead me to The land that I once knew. To learn as we grow old The secrets of our souls. It's not the way that you say it When you do those things to me. It's more the way you really mean it When you tell me what will be. Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war? When we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need. In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed.

Thanks for watching one...or the other....or both!? :-) http://youtu.be/ACAK1Ck2ZM0 Year Of The Cat - Al Stewart [Lyrics] On a morning from a Bogart movie In a country where they turn back time You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running like a watercolour in the rain Don't bother asking for explanations She'll just tell you that she came In the year of the cat She doesn't give you time for questions As she locks up your arm in hers And you follow 'till your sense of which direction Completely disappears By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls There's a hidden door she leads you to These days, she says, I feel my life Just like a river running thru The year of the cat Well, she looks at you so cooly And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea She comes in incense and patchouli So you take her, to find what's waiting inside The year of the cat Well, morning comes and you're still with her And the bus and the tourists are gone And you've thrown away the choice and lost your ticket So you have to stay on But the drum-beat strains of the night remain In the rhythm of the new-born day You know sometime you're bound to leave her But for now you're going to stay In the year of the cat Year Of The Cat was the title track from Al Stewart's seventh studio album which was released in the summer of 1976. The album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and engineered by Alan Parsons. This song is very special to me....in my top 5 of all time. The songwriting, Al's vocals, the guitar work is outstanding (Peter White plays the acoustic solo and Tim Renwick follows with the electric solo), Peter Wood's piano was so important that he received a co-writing credit.....yeah it's all top-notch work, but I think the thing that really made the song shine and made it such a stand-out classic was that gorgeous, melodic Phil Kenzie sax solo. The cover design, by Hipgnosis and illustrator Colin Elgie, depicts a woman who has an apparent obsession with cats. She can be seen in the mirror dressing up as a cat for a costume party, and all of the items on her dresser have feline motifs. It's always a treat to work on videos that feature some of that iconic Hipgnosis artwork.....I couldn't begin to count the hours I spent scrutinizing some of the incredible Hipgnosis artwork as the record was spinning away on my turntable. I have some very interesting things in the pipe for you other Hipgnosis aficionados out there! Stay tuned. This video represented a milestone for my....the 200th one I've created! Maybe 10 or so videos back I realized that I would be hitting 200 soon and started thinking about which song to give the spot. I had been working on a video of this song for over a year, and it was going nowhere slowly....then out of the blue, I stumbled across the amazing watercolor face and I knew I had my YOTC since my concept always focused on the line "like a watercolor in the rain" so I jumped in deep with that image and built the video up around it. It was a much simpler video earlier on, but it got wilder and wilder and I couldn't resist adding more and more color and effects. Special thanks to: Annika Ritter Photography for her amazing watercolor that was the basis of my concept for the video http://arfotografie.wordpress.com/2013/01/07/watercolor-portrait/

    Aqualung - Jethro Tull 1971 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    Sitting on a park bench eyeing little girls with bad intent. Snot running down his nose greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes. Drying in the cold sun Watching as the frilly panties run. Feeling like a dead duck spitting out pieces of his broken luck. Sun streaking cold an old man wandering lonely. Taking time the only way he knows. Leg hurting bad, as he bends to pick a dog-end he goes down to the bog and warms his feet. Feeling alone the army's up the rode salvation à la mode and a cup of tea. Aqualung my friend don't start away uneasy you poor old sod, you see, it's only me. Do you still remember December's foggy freeze when the ice that clings on to your beard is screaming agony. And you snatch your rattling last breaths with deep-sea-diver sounds, and the flowers bloom like madness in the spring. "Aqualung" was the title track from Jethro Tull's fourth album which was released in 1971. This is the album that really broke the group out to massive popularity they achieved. Aqualung has always played like a concept album to me (though Ian Anderson has always strongly stated it is not), it's compositions dealing with a central theme "the distinction between religion and God". Side One was labeled "Aqualung" and side two was labeled "God". This incredible album, which Rolling Stone included it on their list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", at number 337 (UK magazine Q listed it a number 7 in their "40 Cosmic Rock Albums") was remastered (by Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson) for it's 40th Anniversary and (though I've owned nearly every sonic upgrade ever released) the sound is extraordinary....finally! The track Aqualung was written by Ian and his wife Jennie, apparently after she had taken some photos of homeless people along the Thames. Martin Barre's solo on this track was included in Guitarist magazine's list of "The 20 Greatest Guitar Solos of All Time" at number 20. Special thanks to: Paulstam48's Channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/paulstam48) for the wildflower madness video and radma.ca (http://radmad.blogspot.com/) for the cool old aqualungish dude image...and of course, as usual, any one else whose contributions helped make this video possible!

    Oh Very Young - Cat Stevens 1974 ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Oh Very Young" was released on Buddha And The Chocolate Box, Cat Steven's 8th album, in the winter of 1974. Cat Stevens was one of the very first artists whose albums I was exposed to from my older cousin's album collection, and along with Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lennon solo records, Elton John, Jethro Tull, Leon Russell and a few others....some of the music that made me fall in love with music in my early youth. Cat Stevens Greatest Hits, released in 1975 and one of the first albums I ever owned, was among my very first favorite albums (though actually a compilation and not an album proper).....for several years this record was never far from my turntable. These songs used to carry some very heavy weight in the seventies, and though time has caused them to fade a bit, listening to them all now, they are every bit as beautiful and artistic as ever. Some of the greatest songs of a generation by a truly inspired, spiritual and talented singer-songwriter. "Oh Very Young" remains today what it always was and always will be, an achingly beautiful reminder that we're all "only dancing on this earth for a short while". I hope you enjoy the video effort! From AllMusic.com: While Foreigner was Cat Stevens' fifth consecutive gold album and his fourth straight Top Ten hit, it actually marked a small drop commercially and encountered critical resistance for the lengthy suite that took up all of side one. Eight months later, Buddha and the Chocolate Box found Stevens back in England and back with producer Paul Samwell-Smith and second guitarist Alun Davies. It also marked a return to the simpler style of earlier albums. No song ran much over five minutes, the arrangements were sparer and featured more acoustic guitar, and the lyrics did not take off into discursive ruminations about the state of the universe. It was very much as if Stevens was deliberately trying to make an album like Teaser and the Firecat, his commercial and artistic apex. Having begun the album with an ode to "Music" and its potential for reforming the world, he ended with "Home in the Sky," in which he sang, "Music is a lady that I still love." Such statements of renewed commitment added to the sense that the album was consciously crafted as an attempted second wind for the singer, who had been recording and performing at a torrid pace since returning to the music business full-time four years before. But that was not to say that he had abandoned the spiritual nature of his creative quest, and the songs were, as usual, littered with religious imagery. Stevens' fans responded warmly to Buddha and the Chocolate Box's stylistic return to form. "Oh Very Young" became his first Top Ten hit in two years, and the album was held out of number one only by The Sting. The album's tone, however, suggested that Stevens was once again wearying of being a pop star, even as he delivered a record that maintained that status. [Lyrics] Oh very young What will you leave us this time You're only dancing on this earth for a short while And though your dreams may toss and turn you now They will vanish away like your daddy's best jeans Denim Blue fading up to the sky And though you want him to last forever You know he never will (You know he never will) And the patches make the goodbye harder still Oh very young What will you leave us this time There'll never be a better chance to change your mind And if you want this world to see a better day Will you carry the words of love with you Will you ride the great white bird into heaven And though you want to last forever You know you never will (You know you never will) And the goodbye makes the journey harder still Oh very young What will you leave us this time You're only dancing on this earth for a short while Oh very young What will you leave us this time

    Fly Like An Eagle - Steve Miller Band 1976 FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Fly Like An Eagle" was the title track to from Steve Miller Band's ninth studio album, released in the spring of 1976. I'll always associate this record with all the great times and great friends from my freshman year of high school. Three singles were released from the album in 1976. In 2003, the album was ranked number 450 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. On an updated list in 2012, the magazine listed the album at number 445. I used used the source track for this video from another older DCC Gold release, which still sounds very nice. I also have the 30th Anniversary remaster which sounds equally fine (which is also definitely the one to grab if you're a fan of this record as it not only has incredible remastering, but also includes a bonus DVD and 5.1 Surround Sound. I always thought it would be cool to see an eagle flying against the iconic Fly Like An Eagle cover art and finally jumped in to see what I could do with it. I got frustrated not being able to find really HD quality images of the cover, so ended up backing off some things I really wanted to try After a few edits, I still really hadn't really gotten the structure or a few of the effects quite right (not to mention chroma key adjustment nightmares with the flying eagle clip!) and this is another effort where I'm calling it early and moving on! ;-) For the few interested in the video creation process itself: Quite a bit of this one might look pretty familiar to some who have seen my other videos, as I ended up borrowing heavily from a previous one (you'll know the one if you know the one! LOL!)....mostly the clocks/pocket watch. Coincidentally enough, many of the effects I've borrowed from that previous video (mainly the ornate clock mask/colored clouds/pyramids) were actually created for an even earlier video (Blue Oyster Cult's "Astronomy") which still hasn't gotten finished! And since I'm really wanting to use them for the video I'd originally created them for (at max effect)....fair warning!....you WILL see them again! LOL! Special thanks to: YellowCandyFloss's awesome pocket watch! http://yellowcandyfloss.deviantart.com/ ...and of course EVERYONE ELSE WHO'S ART CONTRIBUTED TO THE VIDEO! THANKS!!!

    Doctor Doctor - UFO 1974 Remastered Audio 1080p Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Doctor Doctor" was released in the spring of 1974 on UFO's third studio album (and their debut on Chrysalis), Phenomenon. On this album the band left their blues-based "space rock" sound behind, in part due to the presence of new guitarist Michael Schenker. The album was produced by Leo Lyons, bassist of British rock group Ten Years After. All tracks were recorded at Morgan Studios in London. The original cover design and photos were produced by Hipgnosis. Hard to believe that this is only my second video from one of my all-time favorite hard rock bands, UFO. One of my way earlier videos for "Love To Love" is still one of my most popular (though I can't watch it without wanting to remake it! LOL!)...and I started a couple of other tracks by the band, including this one, not long after finishing that video. Hardcore fans may notice that for this video I used clips from the band performing "Lights Out" and not "Doctor Doctor" from the same concert....I tired using clips from both songs and the performance of "Lights Out" just somehow fit better for the video....go figure!? LOL! This is a great great song and I'm happy to finally have something done for it....and for you other UFO fans...I promise I'll have more videos for tracks from this most awesome band coming soon. THANKS FOR WATCHING! As always HUGE THANKS to everyone who's art contributed to this new art....THANK YOU!!!!!!! [Lyrics] Doctor doctor, please Oh, the mess I'm in Doctor doctor, please, oh the mess I'm in She walked up to me and really stole my heart And then she started to take my body apart *Livin', lovin', I'm on the run Far away from you Livin', lovin', I'm on the run So far away from you Doctor doctor, please Oh, I'm goin' fast Doctor doctor, please, oh, I'm goin' fast It's only just a moment, she's turnin' paranoid That's not a situation for a nervous boy Doctor doctor, please Oh, the mess I'm in Doctor doctor, please, oh, the mess I'm in But you look so angry as I crawled across your floor She's got the strain, and I can't take any more *Repeat *Repeat

    Dire Straits - Once Upon A Time In The West 1979 Remaster ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    Turn off the white, venture into the archives and experience and explore the art of MetalGuruMessiah in a different, more compelling and pleasing way: https://metalgurumessiah.wordpress.com/ No. 6 in my series of videos for some of my favorite songs, Once Upon A Time In The West from Dire Strait's 1979 album Communique. Communique was Dire Straits follow up to their huge worldwide hit debut album. This album was released in 1979 and I remember listening to it alot during my first year at college. The album was not as critically acclaimed as their first album, but I never really understood why because I thought it was even better. The song "Once Upon A TIme In The West" is of course an easy fit with Sergio Leone's 1968 film of the same name. Every time I hear this song, I have the movie in my mind. Classic both! The video consists of a couple of clips from the film and a few variations on several images and masks. I really like how the music from the film blends with the song, although I only placed two instances of film music, I did experiment with a few others and they worked really well, but time wasn't there. Anyway, one of my favorite songs and one of my favorite movies captured at last as I've played them in my mind hundreds of times! [Lyrics] Some people get a cheap laugh breaking up the speed limit Scaring the pedestrians for minute Crossing up progress driving on the grass Leaving just enough room to pass Sunday driver never took a test Oh yeah, once upon a time in the west Yes it's no use saying that you don't know nothing It's still gonna get you if you don't do something Sitting on a fence that's a dangerous course Ah, you could even catch a bullet from the peace-keeping force Even the hero gets a bullet in the chest Oh yeah, once upon a time in the west Mother Mary your children are slaughtered Some of you mothers ought to lock up your daughter Who's protecting the innocenti Heap big trouble in the land of plenty Tell me how we're gonna do what's best You guess once upon a time in the west Oh yeah once upon a time in the west Oh yeah once upon a time in the west Oh yeah once upon a time in the west Once upon a time in the west My "Hotel California" video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0baP5noUJGY

    Madrigal - Yes 1978 192KHz/24bit FLAC 4K Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Madrigal" was released on Yes' ninth studio album, Tormato, in September of 1978. This is a beautiful tune from the album that features Rick Wakeman playing a Thomas Goff harpsichord. Hoping to get a couple more videos I've started for other tracks from Tormato finished soon. This one features a few clips (I've enhanced HDR levels for more vibrancy) from Lech Majewski's wonderfully gorgeous and unusual 2011 film, The Mill and The Cross which is a movie surrounding and set-inside the painting The Way to Calvary (1564) by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. I absolutely love the imagery this film creates, check it out if you've not seen it. Frow Wiki: It is their last album recorded with singer Jon Anderson and keyboardist Rick Wakeman prior to their departure from the group in 1980. After wrapping their tour in support of their previous album, Going for the One (1977), the band gathered in London in February 1978 to record a new album. The band encountered several issues that hindered its potential including their overall direction, the decision to produce it by themselves, and its uneven quality. Tormato received a mixed critical reception upon release, but was a commercial success. It peaked at No. 8 in the UK and No. 10 in the US. "Don't Kill the Whale" was released as a single in the UK which reached No. 36. Tormato continued to sell in the US and is certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling over one million copies. Yes supported the album with the commercially successful 1978–79 tour with concerts performed in the round. Tormato was remastered for CD in 1994 and 2004; the latter contains several previously unreleased tracks from the album's recording sessions. As with Going for the One, the album's cover was designed by Hipgnosis but retains the band's logo designed by Roger Dean. Howe pitched the album's original title of Yes Tor, referring to Yes Tor, the second highest hill on Dartmoor, an area of moorland in Devon, England. Wakeman claimed to have thrown a tomato at the pictures taken for the album as he recalled the band were disappointed with the initial artwork which had cost a lot of money. The album's title and cover was changed accordingly. Wakeman said the album became a "tragedy" as it had poor artwork and production, but good music. Howe said it was someone at Hipgnosis who threw the tomato on purpose, something that he felt insulted about. According to White, the band "couldn't decide on the cover. I think Po ... put a picture of a guy with divining sticks on the front. He took it home one night and decided it wasn't working. So he threw a tomato at it". The sleeve includes a photograph of the band that was taken in Regent's Park, London, with each member wearing a bomber jacket and sunglasses and looking in a different direction. Each jacket was labelled with the member's name on the front, but Squire had forgotten his and had to wear one labelled "Jim", belonging to tour manager Jim Halley. The word "Chris" was then drawn onto the final cover. [Lyrics] I will be there said my friend of a distant life Covered in greens of a golden age, set in stone Follow me "he sounded of dreams supreme" follow me Drifting within the glow and the after-glow of the eve And if that firelight, I could match the inner flame Sacred ships do sail the seventh age Cast off your garments of fear, replace them with love Most of all play with the game of the age Highest of places remain all as one with you Giving us light and the freedom of the day ... And if that firelight, I could match the inner flame Sacred ships do sail the seventh age And have always been here Celestial travelers have always been here with us Set in the homes of the Universe we have yet to go Countless expansions will arrive and flow inside of us My friend, he of fantasy, dancing with the spirit of the age

    Turn off the white, venture into the archives and experience and explore the art of MetalGuruMessiah in a different, more compelling and pleasing way: https://metalgurumessiah.wordpress.com/ "Bohemian Rhapsody" was released on Queen's fourth studio album, A Night At The Opera, on November 21, 1975. More description later, maybe....what's there to say about this one really?! LOL! If you were around in 1975 you know this song RULED the airwaves for years...still a very popular song and we'll all probably enjoy it as much the 2nd million listens as we did the first!? ;-) One thing though....really important too! If you've never heard this track (or really any of your other favorite rock tracks!) through a good set of headphones?....well, it's fine if you realize that you've never REALLY heard the tune....these songs will be a revelation to you if you've never heard them properly! Go out and spend some $$$ on a nice set of headphones...not shitty earbuds....the music lover in you deserves the treat! Life is short...don't miss out. :-) Audio Audiophile 96kHz/24bit FLAC! This was another really quick video that came about because I'm frustrated with so many other things I'm working on which are stuck for one reason or another. Jumped in and didn't think about it too much...just wanted to get something out this week. I always hoped to so something pretty cool for this song, but this will have to do. The main attraction for this video is that it's using a really high quality audio source track. I hope you enjoy the effort and as always.....THANKS FOR WATCHING! [Lyrics] Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide No escape from reality Open your eyes Look up to the skies and see I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy Because I'm easy come, easy go A little high, little low Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me Mama, just killed a man Put a gun against his head Pulled my trigger, now he's dead Mama, life had just begun But now I've gone and thrown it all away Mama, ooo Didn't mean to make you cry If I'm not back again this time tomorrow Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters Too late, my time has come Sends shivers down my spine Body's aching all the time Goodbye everybody I've got to go Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth Mama, ooo (anyway the wind blows) I don't want to die I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all I see a little silhouetto of a man Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango Thunderbolt and lightning very very frightening me Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo Figaro - magnifico But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me He's just a poor boy from a poor family Spare him his life from this monstrosity Easy come easy go will you let me go Bismillah!

    Monolith - T. Rex 1971 HD FLAC ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    "Monolith" was released in the fall on 1971 on T. Rex's sixth studio album, Electric Warrior. This is a rock n roll masterpiece, one of the greatest rock/glam rock albums of ever. Marc Bolan was a unique artist and, though he may have started getting a little repetitive later in his career (before his untimely death in a car accident in 1977), he produced some great music until the end. And, I'm not sure his influence can be overstated...many artists owe a great debt to him, and this record in particular. I mentioned in a recent video (Wishbone Ash's "Sometime World") how I came to come by this record....and from that first spin until today this album has lost none of it's magic, beauty and power. It was tough to decide which track to do first (and I had some things leftover from the effort, so I'll most likely follow up soon with another album track using some of those effects)....I'm happy to finally get around to doing something for a track from it...."Monolith"...maybe, just maybe, my favorite track on the album! (Maybe it's that heavy stomp, like an old locomotive building up steam? Maybe it's the spooky, surging, sighing, wailing, moaning of the layered background vocals? Definitely both!....Listen to it loud, preferably through some good headphones. :-) Hope you enjoy the thing....and thanks for watching! As usual, Special Thanks to everyone who's art made this new art possible....THANK YOU!!!! [Lyrics] The throne of time Is a kingly thing From whence you know We all do begin And dressed as you are girl In your fashions of fate Baby it's too late Shallow all the actions Of the children of men Fogged was their vision Since the ages began And lost like a lion In the canyons of smoke Girl it's no joke.

    Bridge Of Sighs - Robin Trower 1974 ~MetalGuruMessiah~

    The sun don't shine The moon don't move the tides, to wash me clean Sun don't shine The moon don't move the tides, to wash me clean Why so unforgiving and why so cold Been a long time crossing Bridge of Sighs Cold wind blows The Gods look down in anger, on this poor child Cold wind blows And Gods look down in anger, on this poor child Why so unforgiving and why so cold Been a long time crossing Bridge of Sighs "Bridge Of Sighs" was the title track from Robin Trower's second solo album released, after he left Procol Harum, in 1974. The album was produced by Procol Harum's organist Matthew Fisher and was engineered by acclaimed Beatles soundman Geoff Emerick. This is an album filled with incredible songs, including the eerie, windblown soundscape of the title track, "Too Rolling Stoned", "Day Of The Eagle", "Little Bit Of Sympathy", "The Fool And Me", "In This Place", and others.....all featuring Robin's exquisite and original guitar....whether propelling the song forward or winding lazily through it, this album is a masterpiece of guitar rock. And Robin Trower remains one of the premier players in the genre, critically acclaimed for his work, yet still somehow strangely underrated and under-recognized for his work from the last several decades. This particular track was taken from 2007's box set, A Tale Untold, the remaster.........xxxxxxxxxxxx The video was based on what I had done with my previous Robin Trower video, "I Can't Wait Much Longer", mainly the mirrored cloud effect. I had actually intended to use only subtle shades of mostly grey and blue for this vid and had the video almost finished with this look, however although it was looking pretty cool and would have worked pretty nicely, after trying a couple of colors for contrast, I just caved in and went back and opened up the colors throughout the video. I've tried numerous times to work a video using very limited color palette and each time, as happened again with this one, I just cannot resist the more intense and beautiful effects that come from utilizing the full color spectrum....maybe one day, though!?
