Neil Young & Booker T 1993

Ok, this one went off the rails. Neil Young with Booker T and the MG’s, July 3, 1993, Torhout, Belgium. Great audience/soundboard matrix recording. It gets silly. Neil and the band have a hard time with Helpless, and have to start over, and I just go berserk get all Dan Brown conspiracy crazy and decide all Neil’s songs have darker meaning. I laughed my ass off. I hope you do too. If nothing else the music is amazing. Booker T and the MG’s are solid as a rock behind Neil, and add some depth to the groove. Enjoy, friends.

Elton John – San Diego 1975

Bonus Quarantine Episode – Mike Millard Master

Another Mike Millard Master was released today. The JEMS recording group restores these (heretofore unreleased) tapes, often reshelling them or baking them if necessary… in order to extract every drop of clarity and fidelity. They’re doing god’s work. Today they released Elton John Sept 29, 1975 San Diego…. .and it’s incredible. To me it was a reminder of why Elton John is famous in the first place. In the 70’s this guy delivered. In this show he played two sets totaling 32 songs! I play the songs I know, Rocket Man, Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and Someone Saved My Life Tonight (which is incredibly moving), but the whole damn show is incredible. I hope you enjoy it.

Hello world!

I used to own a blog called Youdopia, but I let that lapse and it vanished, after five years of wonderful content. I won’t let that happen again.

So now I am reborn wit Heart of Markness. I am, as you may have guessed, Mark. Hi. This blog will be things I think you should see, hear, read, know, etc. If you’re an old friend, or fan of Youdopia, then you know what to expect. If not, then, I hope you will enjoy what you see, and if so, stick around.
