I just attempted to set up my first video on this blog. Not sure that's going to work, but HEY...can't blame a girl for trying.

I first fell in love with the music of JJ Cale in 1975. Geoff was a pup and I was living in Encinitas in blissful ignorance and poverty. Oh well. Anyway, I went to the Roxy (which was later reinvented as a movie theatre with very cool loungy seats, but I don't know if it still exists). On the bill with JJ Cale was Maria Muldaur. I was young, thin, and full of myself. I wore this amazing dress, basically a very skinny, floor-length, scoop neck sleeveless t-shirt with airbrushing on the front. I remember, and this is the thing my dears.... I wore NOTHING under it. NOTHING. At one point I walked up the aisle to the lobby and when I came back my then-boyfriend exclaimed over my blatant exhibitionism. Eyes had turned, I knew that. Oh, ho hum. Yes. Those were the days my friend. Milk it while you are young. Yes, do.

And while you are at it, buy the new disc -- Road To Escondido. I guess JJCale lives in my home city. Don't think I ever knew that. He's amazing. Smooth. I still have his works here, and I think Geoff has the original vinyl.

Whatever happened to Maria Midnight-at-the-Oasis Muldaur? She was hot, too. Ah, we all were hot. California girls. Prime. Mmm mmm mmm.

This is fabulous.
Run... yes, do not walk, RUN out and buy ROAD TO ESCONDIDO.
Of course this song isn't on it, but you get JJ Cale and Eric Clapton...what could be better? Ah, this is GREAT.
