ERIC BURDON: When I was Young

Whilst on the subject of Eric Burdon, and if your answer to that is "I didn't know that we were on the subject of Eric Burdon", then you obviousky didn't read my ramblings yesterday on the subject, I came across this earlier.

It is a massively peculiar bit of film by Peter Whitehead, and not only is it massively peculiar, it is of one of my favourite songs of his, containing one of the best lyrics ever committed to vinyl:

"I met my first love at thirteen,
she was brown and I was pretty green".

If you can read that and not be impressed, then I despair of you. Check this out:

PS. Much to my great joy I have found that there are two other Eric Burdon DVDs out on Gonzo. I will be covering them in great detail very soon. In the meantime check out his Gonzo Artist Page.

Also check out All my Loving on DVD. You know it makes sense.

PPS. "Does this mean you will be posting random bits of footage and paens in praise of Eric Burdon, lots in the future?" I hear you ask. Quite probably! Wayhay!

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
