Highlights of 3 Concerts

ICE

Unbelievable fantastic performance of Ice, especially about halfway when the guitar really goes on with it. The best word to describe it for me is ‘haunting’, having a deeply disturbing effect.

STATIONARY TRAVELLER

Stationary Traveller is just so amazing, it takes my breath away, no matter how many times I listen to it.

LADY FANTASY

The whole video is just so fascinating, it goes through all kind of moods all the time. Especially at the end of part one, I really like the sudden change. But the other transitions are just as brilliant, as is the whole song.

Rose of Sharon
Love, are you awake or are you sleeping?
I’m so excited I could die…
starting out our lives.
Must make some plans for the future
now we need to settle down…
make a home our own.
What we gonna do when the baby comes?
It won’t be long.
Love, am I awake or am I dreaming?
I’m so excited I could cry.
At times I’m so afraid.
Say you’ll get a job
and never leave us…
Though I know you’ll make it right,
Find a better life.
What we gonna do when the baby comes?
It won’t be long.
Don’t you ever go,
say you’ll never leave
Promise you won’t ever leave.
Don’t leave me,
We need you.
Rose
I will try to settle down but
I can’t tell the future
Rose
I will try to stay around but
I don’t know the future
Oh Rose,
you’ll never know,
just how much I need
you so.
Oh Rose, you’ll never see
Just how much you mean
to me
But Rose,
This road is so hard and long
and I just can’t say.

Mother Road

Concert 1997

Album Dust and Dreams

 

Mother Road
You’ve made your decision to leave
there’s no turning ’round.
Now that you’ve got a reprieve,
you must stand your ground.
Some of the others are weak,
so you must be strong
155 won’t last very long…
Ma, will we make out,
do you think that this old car
will last?
Pa, is there some doubt,
if our bad luck will
stay in the past?
Well I’m hoping it’s so,
but you can’t really know til the end.
They tell me that all things must change
but they begin again.
Listen to the motor and the road
and how does it feel?
Listen with your ears and your hands
on the steering wheel.
Ma, will we make out,
do you think that this old car will last?
Pa, is there some doubt,
if our bad luck will stay in the past?
Listen now boys,
what your ma has told you
there is no way we can tell…
We’ve got to face this road together
and have some faith
in ourselves.
Ma, will we make out,
do you think that this old car will last?
Pa, is there some doubt,
if our bad luck will
stay in the past?
Ma,
Will we make out…?
