The blog of the seven seals


Feeling bluesy today? Somewhat apocalyptic?

This song reminds me of Sam Cook'es observation that there was little difference between African American sacred and secular styles.

sj .. get a sore throat then and start singing ..

my thoughts exACtly .. :)

lisa,
hadn't thought about that..

aggie,
me too .. let's go!

hliza,
not many folks have husky singing voices like that. a current musician who has a voice like that is tom waits ..

tinkerbell..
i agree 100%

foam said...

what's foam writin'..
nothing these days..

nothing these days ..

besides, any seals my blog might have would certainly not be worth breaking into ..

i have no 4 horsies of the apocalypse hiding behind a seal, no earthquakes ..

all i have are foam issues and they are boring, so i keep those well sealed..

Devin said...

foam said...

and the best to you too, devin ..
i too agree with the tink ..

Monique said...

That was lovely. A wonderful voice. Whilst listening I looked at your river walk pics. The one with your shadow is amazing.

Helene (the Artist Formerly Known as Kate) said...

I think you just wanted to get that other song outta your head! lol

He does have an interesting voice!

Hope you are having a good week!

Mayden' s Voyage said...

What interests me most about the song (aside from the age) was the sweet ladies voice in the background. She sounded like she was smiling- and I wonder who she was. (X probably knows! ;)

Hugs Foamy :)

Rolf said...

Good song

And poor him
His mother threw lye in his eyes
And still he sings, remarkable!

foam said...

rolf,
yes, it's a great song.
i think it was his stepma who threw lye in his eyes when he was 7 ..

mayden's voyage ..
i'm thinking it might be his first wife's voice, but i'm not sure ..

helene ..
FEELINGS?
shit .. there we go again .. grrrr ..

monique ..
ya .. i'm also loving his voice ..
and thanks about the pics .. :)

The Phosgene Kid said...

Blind Melon Chittlin is still my favorite.

benjibopper said...

man that's gorgeous!

it's also a long way from rage against the machine, which is what i was listening to when i hit your blog.

foam said...

ruela ..
early influences for sure ..

sofia,
yeah, i did read your blog earlier today on the chiropractic experience you had .. and couldn't comment in that particular kind of comment box .. :)
maybe it's cause i have a mac. i don't know. i have no problem at all with the comment box i use, or with the pop up comment boxes.

chickory,
yep he's another cool one. hope your neck gets to feeling better soon though ..

phos.,
well now ..
i reckon there's no accounting for taste ..
i never even liked the german version of the chittlins ..

benji,
it is rather lovely, isn't it.
and yes, certainly a different mood then rage against the machine .. lol ..

laughingwolf said...

my kinda music, thx foamy :D

dianne said...

Great song I like the rhythm... from the deep south I gather?

He sure has a gravelly voice like Tom Waits, I also liked the voice of the girl singing too, a really sweet voice. ♥

The Phosgene Kid said...

Waits rules!! He is the last one of the voices representing the Beat generation. Ferlinghetti is the last beat poet standing...

foam said...

you are most welcome, laughingwolf .. :)

dianne,
i'm pretty sure he's from the south. for some reason i'm thinking georgia, but i'd have to google the info to be sure.

phos,
yep ..
i do also luv my waits ..
no doubt about that .. :)
