Nice lyrics Nick. This pretty song is called Mellisa, written by Gregg Allman. He didn't write it for a woman but named it after the little girl that he mentions at the beginning of the video. He was at a store and he saw a mother calling his daughter "Melissa", he liked how it sounded and decided to name the song Melissa (previously written but unnamed at the time). Classic ABB song.

One more. I was thinking just now about Miss Fanny, Moses, crazy Chester, the devil, Carmen, Jack and the whole gang of characters that Robby R came up with for this one of a kind song. The crazy Chester verse (with Rick Danko singing it) is my favorite part of the song. The Band.

Not so many ladies choose to play bass but this one impressed me anyway.

The Cult - She Sells Sanctuary;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCOSPtyZAPA

... totally epic song.

Came across some old footage of them playing The Hippodrome, London in 1986. Videos were posted by Lez Warner who was the drummer in the band at that time. They're in black and white, a bit grainy, sound's not perfect but still good. They capture The Cult at their best though, and with what I think was their best line up - Lez Warner drums, Jamie Stewart bass, a charismatic Ian Astbury, vocals, and Billy Duffy playing the trademark Gretch White Falcon guitar.

First song is Big Neon Glitter;

... and then a great live version of She Sells Sanctuary;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLlWbdnAvHs

Seen The Cult live several times over the years, always a great night out, tons of energy and Billy Duffy never misses a note, he's one of the best rock guitarists out there. To me, The Cult are a 'proper' British rock band. Driving beat, no messing about - whatsoever

Good songs by everyone. I don't think I ever posted this classic song by The Band with Rick Danko doing the lead singing. Beautiful song, slow paced, I like this a lot.

The Band, Richard Manuel (great voice) singing I shall be released (Dylan song). This song with Manuel is a true classic for us The Band fans.

Neil with The Band and Joni Mitchell playing Helpless during The Last Waltz. I like this song more when Neil plays his piano (posted two or three of those versions before) but this one is a classic and I had lost it. I thought this video had been deleted by YouTube......and found it again and with The Band, it cant get much better. Nice words by Mr Young before they start playing.
