only chains we can stand...

Eyes on the Prize


... songs to live by ...

Mavis Staples

Bruce Springsteen,
The Seeger Sessions Band, Live in Dublin


A song that sings itself ... that is wrapped with history ... that is a breath of something more than words.

Lines from Gary Snyder's "I Went into the Maverick Bar" echo through me:

That short-haired joy and roughness—
                America—your stupidity.
I could almost love you again.

Painful to watch that first video. I remember those times so clearly. Thanks for posting both videos.
