File this one under “Only In Nashville” :
Tonight Ann and I and about 500 other boomers who came of age about the time Neil Young released “After The Goldrush” (Spotify) converged on 3rd and Lindsley Bar & Grill in downtown Nashville to listen to “Nashville’s Supergroup” – aka “The Long Players‘ – perform that seminal album in its entirety.
This is something that happens in Nashville several times a year. Musicologist and A-player Bill Lloyd (once of the 1980s Music Row duo “Foster and Lloyd“) gathers some of the finest players in this town – which is to say, some of the finest players in the world – to perform a seminal record from beginning to end. While the basic band remains the same, different vocalists take the stage to sing each song.
I think this was my third “Long Players” show. The first one was a recreation of Bob Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited. As if that wasn’t enough, that night a keyboard player named Al Kooper sat in on the Hammond B1 organ. Yes, the very same Al Kooper who played on the original recording in 1965. Like I said: “Only in Nashville.”
The other “Long Players” show Ann and I went to was a performance of The Beatles “Rubber Soul.” Needless to say, that one was a “boomerfest singalong” much like tonight’s show was.
I photographed the whole “After The Goldrush” show tonight and uploaded all the photos to this album on Facebook. I hope you’ll stop by and have a look. And while you’re there, please “Like” the Cohesion Arts page. You’ll be glad you did. Well, I certainly will be.
(BTW, you may notice that the copyright watermark on these photos says something about “thejoyofmakingmusic.com” More on that next week….)
Check this out:
I can’t tell from the YouTube page what the software is, but it’s the most impressive portrait (and video?) retouching software I’ve seen yet.
In mean, I can’t even tell for sure if this is software… maybe it’s just a music video for a band called “Boggie” and this is their song “Parfum.” Maybe the vocalist is singing to us (in a language I don’t recognize) about the evils of photo-retouching.
For once, Google wasn’t much help.
I know… I’ll go check The Onion…
If annybody else who knows the secret… post a comment, please.

Update 140126: I know the answer now. Popular Photo has disclosed that the video is, indeed, a music video for a Hungarian pop singer named Boggie. So me – and the friend who sent me the link in the first place, among the the fools.
You would think that if such software actually exists, I of all people would know about it by now.
