New Meetup: Bobby Whitlock and Coco Carmel

Announcing a new Meetup for Austin Objectivists!

What: Bobby Whitlock and Coco Carmel

When: Sunday, September 12,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Saxon Pub
1320 S Lamar Blvd
Austin, TX 78704

Late addition...if anyone would like to see Bobby Whitlock (of Derek and the Dominoes) tonight, I'll be there. He usually start about 5:45 and ends at 7:00. Details below:

...Derek and the Dominos' 1970 double album "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs". According to wikipedia this album "is often regarded as Eric Clapton's greatest musical achievement". Following are links to some of the 12 tracks on the album, along with the composers.

Bobby Whitlock (one of the Dominos) and his wife Coco, are playing at the Saxon Pub Sunday, 9/12, $10...a pittance compared to the value of the show. The show is advertised to start at 6:00, but Bobby frequently starts 5-10 minutes early, and the opening of the show is typically excellent, so do yourself a favor and have your beverage in hand and be seated by 5:45. I don't expect him to perform Layla, but I've seen him do the first four songs below in Saxon Pub shows, and the rest I threw in FYI. He does a mix of rock, blues, gospel, and country -- you never know exactly what you'll get, but it will be heartfelt. I hope to see you Sunday! Be prompt...Bobby will be. Anyday (written by Clapton/Whitlock) Thorn Tree in the Garden (Whitlock) Why Does Love Got to be So Sad? (Clapton/Whitlock) Tell the Truth (Clapton/Whitlock) Have You Ever Loved a Woman? (Billy Myles) Little Wing (Jimi Hendrix)

and finally, not that you don't already know it: Layla (Clapton/Gordon)

and skip to 1:50 in the below to hear the famous original 7-note riff that Clapton lifted and sped up to make Layla: As the Years Go Passing By (Albert King)
