Enjoy … the Supremes at the Copa (1965)

Supremesatcopa-1965

“The Supremes at the Copa is a live album by Motown singing group The Supremes, recorded during their debut engagement at the prestigious Copacabana nightclub in New York City. Released in the late fall of 1965, At the Copa was the first live album issued by The Supremes, and the only live album issued by the group’s best-known lineup of Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, and Mary Wilson. Missing the Billboard LP Top 10 by a notch (#11), “The Supremes at the Copa” was a commercial success remaining on the album chart for 54 weeks.” (Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Supremes_at_the_Copa)

Let’s Dance and Celebrate Queen, Country, the Sixties, England and Rock n’ Roll Tonite !

HM the Queen was fair-play enough, to forgive the Pistols who spoilt a previous Jubilee of hers (1977) and Freddie who was quite outrageaous too (Wembley 86), and great enough to organize a revival of the Swingin’ London. (Live on BBC Radio2).

Of course, it was quite logical to celebrate 60 years of reign with the music of the sixties, and to invite both former Beatle Sir Paul (McCartney) and former eccentric Sir Elton John, but all must be grateful for her inviting beautiful Kylie Minogue (and Annie Lennox and several other great singers).

As regards Rock n’ Roll tonite, those who think they may not like watching 60 year old  British ladies twisting and shouting like in the golden era of the mini-skirt (and other beauties England invented in the Sixties and a few hundred years around) …

… may just listen to Madness on the radio on BBC Radio 2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_two/listenlive (anyway, the show on TV may only be watched on BBC One for internet user in theUK).

And those who would like to read on the Internet while listening to the show, may e-read some French eBooks about changes in the current years (which are and/or may become quite “Rock n’ Roll” indeed in many other places than re-swingin’ London).

    

Go #Future, Go #Europe, Go #Champions Go !

It’s the crisis, but not the end of the World (only for Real and Barça) : let’s move, even in reverse if need be (that neo-retro fashion and this Draghi banker …), sideways if taste be or horning in the fog if no better choice, stand-by is not an option. (Go Girls too !)
