"Song of a Baker," Small Faces (1968)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpWKAgcs21w

Not the best-known song by this terrific band, but one of their very best, IMV. Excellent guitar work by Steve Marriott on the break and impressive drumming by Kenney Jones.

Mantra - Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, Trent Reznor

More subtle, than the frankly amazing line-up might suggest.

"Me and the Boys," Bonnie Raitt (live), 1982
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-ltlXNreNc

The song was written by Terry Adams of NRBQ and has a strong association with that band, but Bonnie Raitt (usually good value IMV) sang it on her 1982 album Green Light and here turns in a spirited live version.

Raitt also included another NRBQ song on the album, "Green Lights," written by Adams and bandmate Joey Spampinato. And since you asked, here's a live version of that one from 1985, with a nice bit of slide guitar work by the lady herself.

"Along Comes Mary," the Association (live), 1967
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZsQSFzIsb8

A great clip of the Association opening the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967. I like the Devo-esque introduction of the band by bassist Brian Cole, but can't help having doubts as to whether referring to Larry Ramos as "Made in Japan" would pass muster now. (Ramos was born in Hawaii and was of Filipino descent, for the record.)

That was weird/unexpected, and I thought I'd seen the footage of Monterey right through. That was like the Beatles morph to><Devo or summink :)

Brilliant, hadn't seen that before.

And for any spuds out there, this band are absolutely brilliant: https://wearenotdevo.wordpress.com/ and I really can't recommend them highly enough. Gates of Steel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtX3sGeBrSA

And from the band themselves, my current favourite Devo video on You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaK9nkSX3W8 the energy with which they perform, as recent as 2013, on this recording is fantastic.

That's pretty weird. I recall a name some of my mates had for each other back in the 70's - 'spuds'. No idea where it came from or why. But some were Devo fans (I knew them but wasn't a fan, in the 'ardent teenage fan' of those times), I wonder if that was the reason.... hmmmm :)

That's weird^, I was playing this for my wife earlier (1/2hr ago) as something 'my wife ought to hear [poor her, lol], just to understand my musical journey', and then you post it. amazing eh?
I was then going to follow it with this.... George Clinton still dominating but the mood of the time, what was it '76 or '77?

Re: Zimmerman [aka Bob Dylan], I never got it, even in his hey-day he shouldn't have been allowed to get near vocals, yet that's what he's celebrated for. That and his mainstream and yet common anti politics. Seems to have been famous for being famous and 'being there'.

Wheeling out this old anecdoate yet again :)
Sitting next to two young American girls in a branch of Vapiana (resto) in Berlin. c2008/Overheard.
A: 'So how was the concert?'
B: 'Er well, he can't really sing well, his voice is broken up, he sings flat. [Entirely underwhelmed, but trying not to write off their spend].
...
Me: [thinking > No ****. But when was he any different?]

He’s certainly not just celebrated for his vocals (or lack of them).

His poetry comes into it and his story telling. There’s so much more to his music than mere anecdotes (from 2008?) and it’s not that I’m much into his politics. It was fun back then, at least when I was introduced to his music in 1969 or thereabouts, at about the same time as I was “finding” Leonard Cohen. Who also couldn’t sing but I couldn’t care less.
