HEADROOM (or why we like to hear from you)

"Repression... is a habit that grows... an intimidated press and the government-controlled radio together can regularly sing your praises, and slowly and steadily the people are made to forget the evil things that have already been done, or if these things are referred to again they are conveniently distorted and distorted with impunity, because there will be no opposition to contradict."
- Harry Lee, Oct 4 1956

Re: White Nigger

I do a radio show called "Feelin' Young" - it's on Neil Young, his influences, and those he influenced. In a couple of weeks, I'll be doing a CSNY "Protest Songs" show, and I'd love to have the track "White Nigger", done with Stills and (supposedly) Hendrix. I can't find it anywhere on the net, and my searches led me to your site, which seemed to have had it for download at one point. Could you please send it over so I can have it on my show. I have the Manassas version, but would love to play this one instead. Thanks a lot for your help.

Re: Improv

At some time in the hopefully near future would you mind making this improv selection available for listening. It features Thurston Moore with Rashid Ali and Ginger Baker with Art Blakey.

Since you just had a week of The Wall, would it be too much to ask for some Pink Floyd from BBC? You have lots of interesting material that we would love the hear. If you need suggestions: Mal Waldron "Cool World", Lucifer Rising... the list goes on.

I worked for Little Feat and Lowell in the years '75, '77, '78 and '79. And many other artists thru the years. Now I’m a guitar repair man in Auckland, New Zealand. Today I heard someone playing something and got a bug to figure out the tuning for Willin. I used to know it of course but I did not document things back then like I do now. This has sent me on an internet goose chase thru youtube and old interviews and I came up on your site. WOW. So, will those Lowell mp3s be available again? Thanks.

Thank you! I've downloaded the tracks. Just a note, a few weeks ago you had a post about an American - Art Price - who was caught having sex with a picnic table. He lives about 12 miles from me. A friend said everyone in town had turned their picnic tables up on end, and put them in their yards, that must have been a sight. I got a kick out of the fact the information had made it to you (I assume you are in $ingapore).
