  1. Beautiful number, with a whole pallete of different renditions. One of my favourite ones is the first rough version on the LZIII deluxe version. It's just so damn raw. Who cares if it's sloppy, or an alternative take? My "hands down favourite version" is the BBC version from April 1971. It is tight (Bonzo and Jonesy in top form), Jimmy is not too flashy, but rather more presice and soulful in his playing, and last but not the least... Percy's on fire!!! Nuff said, I'd like to hear what y'all think?!
  2. So the hallowed performance space that is the 120-year-old Massey Hall is getting some much needed renovations. So many great artists have graced her stage and infused the hall with the memories and spirit of their performances, including Jason, Jonesy, and Robert. I've seen (among other shows) Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Jonesy and Robert there - a small but unforgettable list. Hopefully these much needed changes will enable her to be the shrine for another 120 years of legendary concerts. It will happen in two stages, the first of which is underway, and it will not affect shows. The second stage, however, will see Massey Hall's doors closed for between 18 - 24 months. The details are in the following articles. Some lowlights for me include getting rid of the exterior iron fire escape stairs (which I think add character to and maintain the iconic look), and highlights include more bathrooms (seriously, having to go all the way down to the basement??) and stained glass windows being restored and shown in full glory. Tech crews will no doubt appreciate a new proper loading dock, too. Whatever they do, may they be cursed if they damage the acoustics of this space. That and may the ghosts still feel welcome and at home (you think I'm joking...) Massey Hall launches first phase of $135 million revitalization project By Sean Mallen Reporter Global News TORONTO – The federal and provincial government announced Monday an investment of $8 million each for the first phase of the Massey Hall Revitalization Project. To be completed by 2019, the renovation will include the demolition of the Albert Building just to the south and the creation of new, modernized backstage spaces, along with new technical and production facilities and the hall’s first ever loading dock. Mayor John Tory said Toronto has not always done well in preserving its heritage structures.The seven-year $135 million private and publicly funded revitalization plan was approved by city council in 2013. “I am delighted to see this project move forward,” said Finance Minister Joe Oliver, who is also the federal minister responsible for the Greater Toronto Area. He noted that Massey Hall has not only hosted concerts by artists such as Gordon Lightfoot and Oscar Peterson, but also boxing matches, typing contests and chess tournaments. Michael Coteau, Ontario’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, recalled seeing his first hip hop concert at Massey Hall as a teenager 20 years ago. “It’s about bringing Massey Hall into the 21st Century,” he said in announcing the provincial government’s contribution. Toronto-based MOD Developments Inc. had announced in January 2012 the donation of 4,804 square feet of land immediately to the south of Massey Hall for the expansion. Officials say Massey Hall, which first opened in 1894, will remain open to the public for concerts and events during the first phase of the project. However, the building will be closed for a period of 18 to 24 months during the second phase as both the interior and exterior is restored, adding new and accessible space for both artists and patrons. http://globalnews.ca/news/1844700/mayor-tory-to-attend-launch-of-massey-hall-revitalization-project/
