These are two more of my favorite albums. (Aren't they all? No. I wouldn't get too excited about "Hermit of Mink Hollow" for example.)

I finally decided to get back to tackling A Wizard A True Star after leaving it on the back burner for a couple of years.  Learned a few more things since then as well.

So here are tracks 11, 12 and 13.  Sort of had a little to do with my mood today perhaps.

11/12   WHEN THE SHIT HITS THE FAN / SUNSET BLVD / LE FEEL INTERNACIONALE
and
13  SOMETIMES I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO FEEL
Clicky Here

Feed back is more than welcome since those here know these tracks well. 

Play it loud, sounds better ... {#Cheesygrin}
{#Cheers} Y'all

I saw Todd doing A Wizard A True Star last fall at the Strathmore (state of the art venue), but, for some reason, the sound was all off.  First time I had ever been there.

I had the immense pleasure of attending Todd's Johnson Tour concert last night at the Birchmere, in Alexandria, Virginia.

See this show if you get the chance.

I have not seen Todd play guitar like that in a long, long time. It was a bit sloppy at times, but the man can still swing that ax with dexterity and vigor, coaxing out of a bevy of guitars some inspired and soaring solos. He never received the due he could have obtained as a guitar player had he not chosen to become the studio and tour magician intent upon pursuing the eclectic, song by song. There were flashes of that guitar talent on display last night before a music hall that, inexplicably, was not even 3/4 full. (Upon taking the stage, he bellowed "Welcome Sons of the Confederacy," a mischievous remark about Virginia's governor who recently put out a statement regarding the history of Confederacy and Virginia without even mentioning slavery. His quirky humor also was on display all night; easy banter)

As the name of the tour implies, it is a blues show. About 12 songs from the great blues man Robert Johnson interspersed with Todd songs that Todd referred to as his more "bluesy" songs. Among Todd songs played: Black Maria, No. 1 Lowest Common Denominator, Hamburger Hell, Tiny Demons, and I Saw The Light. Covers of RJ included Dust My Broom, Walkin' Blues, and, as the final encore, Crossroads.

His voice cannot really come close to matching the soul-piercing work of the plaintive and evocative Johnson, but it was interesting to see Todd's take on these songs even as they fell short of that high mark. Todd's adventuresome nature in terms of music has always been a hallmark.

It was his soaring guitar, though, that sent this night into the stratosphere for me.

He can still do it. Electrifying.


Hey! You're alive!

Contagious, amazing energy for an incredibly ambitious show (I didn't get how ambitious until now).  The costume changes reflected in the book are astounding.  What a great way to start the day.  I enjoyed this very much!

Video to follow... 

 
I bet it was! I got to see him at the Akron Civic Theater in..well...Akron Ohio back in the 70's. I had (collected) all his albums. For some inexplicable reason, I traded or sold them to a friend who was moving to Florida. Never saw him again.

Waiting for video.

Dan, I would love to go to something like that! I've been a Todd fan forever. (I missed him last time around, had a terminally ill family member)

I'm thinking I'll have to travel to catch a gig.

Peace

Earthquake in New York City,
the Chrysler Building fell in my yard
But when the shit hits the fan,
I think I'll have to make my way
back to Sunset Boulevard
The IRA has just hit London,
they blew up half of Scotland Yard
But when the shit hits the fan,
I guess I'll try to make my way
back to Sunset Boulevard
Cruisin' down a mountain highway,
someone's cut the brakes on my car
But when the shit hits the fan,
I know I have to get my ass
back to Sunset Boulevard
