A family friend bought me tickets to E.J.'s performance at the Greek Theatre in Griffith park.  I was only a few rows away from the stage.  It was an amazing experience in such a small historic venue (photos) ...I tend to like his earlier music better.  He's a complex artist and I have no idea how true-to-life the biopic is.  But this particular scene with this particular song was powerful and subtle at the same time.

I saw him around the same time, Z, in Buffalo, NY, in a much larger venue.  Amazed that he would come to my (relatively) small hometown.  I don't know for sure, but that was likely due to the efforts of (believe it or not) Harvey Weinstein.  At the time he was living in Buffalo and getting his start in show business as a rock concert promoter (aka "Harvey and Corky Productions").  I'm with you re preferring EJ's earlier music.  Seem to recall hearing/reading somewhere that EJ mostly approved of that film.  I'll have to look at it soon.  Heard an old NPR interview w/him recently.  He's quite self-effacing about his life trajectory.

In re "The Crown" - It's playing on Netflix, and I'm not that interested in the royal family, but was curious how they portrayed all the Diana stuff ... so I watched the last few episodes only.  I thought it so well done that I began to watch it from the beginning.  What I'm really appreciating about it is that indirectly, it's a good history lesson.  I found myself going to Wikipedia a number of times to learn about the individuals and events portrayed in the early 20th century.

A pause for a "seasonal" tune.   Some (probably few) will remember that excerpts from this song by a strangely-named band I'd never heard of, was used as the background music for an L.L. Bean Christmastime commercial.  I liked the sound of it so well that I researched on Google to ID it:


It seems to fit the times now; an upbeat reminder that things will get better, even if you feel like the "windows are painted shut".

Just a bit more thread drift...

Yes, definitely.  They do  a great job of recreating the era.  It's like stepping into a time machine.  Great storytelling, lots of subtlety and detail. I even remember hearing or reading of some of these events while growing up.  ~z

A phenomenal performance at Wembley Stadium in northwest London, July, 2000--One Last Time Live in Concert.   "Proud Mary" starts out slow and easy.  Then around minute 04:20 the stage explodes with energy. 
Embiggens nicely.   Enjoy.   ~z

"Glenfern" is a beautiful soothing song from Kathleen Edwards, which led me to some of her earlier stuff, including an Austin City Limits performance.  "Options Open" is also getting a lot of current play.

Can't get enough of Laura Lace shredding on the guitar playing classical pieces.  Sometimes solo and sometimes w/ Victor.

The negativity and cursing is unnecessary in this thread.  To avoid ads, wait a few seconds and most can be skipped.  Just don't click Play until they pass.
