From 1972, Jackson Browne LP: For Everyman. Harmony vocals with Glenn Frey, piano (@1:16) by Rockaday Jonnie (Elton John) and slide guitar by David Lindley.


"mother's little friend" was slang for Valium in the '60/70's. "Housewife's little helper", etc... I would hazard a guess that "my redneck friend" is a variation on the theme.

To mark the 82nd anniversary of the infamous "Operation Barbarossa" Al Stewart is reputed to have read 40 books on the invasion, including memoirs written by generals of both sides, in preparation to writing this epic song.

This is a true moment in Ray's life, he was a bit short after playing his set list, pure imagination and talent got him through it, ended up being one of his biggest hits, lemons to lemonade :giggle:
Ray Charles, What'd I say.

He's a perfectionist, and you can hear it in his music. I saw him at a concert hall years back, and for the first couple of songs he stopped during the songs and told the audio engineers, "I don't sound like that, get it right, it's off". I don't know if he gave up trying or if they got it right, but I really could hear any change in the voice audio. It was a good concert :)

MUNA: Tiny Desk Concert:



Description:

Stephen Thompson | June 23, 2023
“It’s very cool to see that everyone who works for NPR is gay,” MUNA singer-guitarist Katie Gavin deadpanned by way of introduction at the band’s Tiny Desk concert. For a band whose latest album is currently soundtracking its second straight Pride Month, MUNA has found a deep kinship with queer audiences — a fact Gavin noted during the lead-in to a country reworking of 2021’s irresistible “Silk Chiffon.”

“We love being queer, and we find a lot of joy in it,” she said. “We think, like, if the world is gonna change in the way that it needs to, it’s very important for our revolution to be based on joy, and what brings us joy, and chasing after that.”

“Silk Chiffon” embodies that idea, but it’s also deepened by the version MUNA unveiled here: As its melody was transformed by a string-infused arrangement, it revealed a clear undercurrent of yearning only hinted at in the original.

Expanded into a septet, MUNA used the setting as an opportunity to lean into its moodier side. “Loose Garment” placed Naomi McPherson at the piano as Gavin applied subtle effects to her own plaintive voice. And “Stayaway,” a highlight from 2019’s Saves The World, placed such a demand on the three voices at MUNA’s core — Gavin, McPherson and Josette Maskin — that they practically exploded with relief when it was over.

MUNA’s appearance happened to coincide with a loosening of pandemic restrictions at the Tiny Desk — most notably the hard cap on the number of audience members who could attend. It was hard to miss the sense of liberation, and the surge of energy, in the sheer size of the crowd.
