"Ανυπομονούσε πολύ να γυρίσει ο αδελφός της. Της είχε υποσχεθεί ότι θα ξεμπέρδευε από τις δουλειές του μέχρι τα μέσα της επόμενης εβδομάδας, και θα τη συνόδευε για τρεις τέσσερις μέρες στην Αίγινα. Ο Φάνης δεν υπήρχε περίπτωση να πάρει άδεια πριν από το Δεκαπενταύγουστο, αλλά ακόμη και τότε βαριόταν αφόρητα στο εξοχικό της. Δεν ήταν τύπος των διακοπών, δεν του άρεσαν η απραξία και η θερινή…Continue

Amazing video - pure art. But can't seem to be able to post this video directly, so adding the link:
No idea where to start or where to end with this group. Absolutely perfect sound and execution onm all their songs, album or live versions.

At the time I had no idea he had any discography, just that he was a musician. That was back in 1977-78 in Kansas City, Missouri. He even asked me…Continue

"The nightclub up on Napoleon was crowded, the noise deafening, and I couldn't see Clete at any of the tables. Then I realized that an exceptional event had just taken place on the bandstand. The fat Man, the most famous rhythm and blues musician ever produced by New Orleans, had pulled up in front in his pink Cadillac limo, and like a messiah returning to his followers, his sequined white coat and coal black skin almost glowing with an electric purple sheen, had walked straight through the…Continue

It was empty inside, except for a fat Negro woman whom I could see through the service window in the kitchen, and a pretty, redheaded waitress in her early twenties, dressed in a pink uniform with her hair tied up on her freckled neck. She was obviously tired, but she was polite and smiled at me when she took my order, and I felt a sense of guilt, almost shame, at my susceptibility and easy fondness for a young woman's…Continue
