Three Years In Oak Cliff

Striving to become a true cultivated eccentric often requires the scholar to step away from the labs, the spreadsheets, the yardwork & even oneself to support the community.

The Kessler celebrates three years this weekend. Take a day, a week or a month (results may vary) to check out The Kessler's youtube page which has cracked 1600 videos.  These live musical performances may startle those that rarely surface out of the studio or beyond the internet.

The below funk comes but from one evening.  Please conduct your own research and get back to me as needed. There is no due date.

opening act The Revivalists

18 minutes of the Soul Rebels

Ivan Neville and Dumpstaphunk 1

I promise that's not me in the banter, I was on the floor.
one day it will be available somewhere somehow perhaps

Ivan Neville and Dumpstaphunk 2

See you in April - at least that's the plan.

Songs from Sesame Street 2 STER-1343 1972

This record has been surfacing lately but never at right time place or price.
Until yesterday on Palm Sunday.
Cheap and clean & no deep scratches, stereophonic even.
Everyone strive to get back to that same state.
  • DQ-1342 The Mouse Factory Presents Mickey and his Friends
  • DQ-1343 1971 maybe, my STER copy is 1972
  • DQ-1344 This could be your find here - get to work pronto
  • DQ-1345 Candy Man
Now wayoutjunk posted this in 2010 but this fresh rip provides some modification to my understanding of the LP.

1.  Sesame Street - softly promises a safe place once you find the way.
2.  Everyone Makes Mistakes - when you grow up be prepared to name names
3.  High Middle Low - the track recorder loop is a highlight
4.  Sing - ubiquity 
5.  I'm Pretty 
6.  Someday, Little Children
7.  Sesame Street (Reprise) - horns increase
     kids now free to apply knowledge back on their own streets 

Unless I'm mistaken.

liner notes by Lee Hale
     Music for television is perhaps the most diversified of all medium, because it includes almost every kind of tune imaginable.
     Since TV covers all sorts of moods - children's shows, police shows, game shows, variety shows, sports shows, movie shows - the themes for these shows have to "set it all up" at the beginning, to get the viewers "in the mood" for what follows. Most of the themes in this album are original, conceived for shows yet to be televised.
     We hope you enjoy the variety of music in this album and listen for the themes on upcoming shows - and you can say "you heard it here first!"
