Wednesday/ at the Twilight Exit

dive bar
a small, unglamorous, eclectic, old-style bar with inexpensive drinks, which may feature dim lighting, shabby or dated decor, neon beer signs, packaged beer sales, cash-only service, and a local clientele (from Wikipedia)

The amigos went to Twilight Exit tonight, off Cherry Street in Central District. It was toasty outside today (88 °F / 32 °C) but there was a welcome breeze outside on the patio.

That’s Jimi Hendrix (b.1942- d.1970) on the artwork by the entrance— Seattle native and guitarist, singer, and songwriter. His mainstream career spanned only four years, but he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music.


Monday/ Olivia Newton-John (1948-2022)

I got good Kentucky whiskey on the counter
And my friends around to help me ease the pain
‘Til some button-pushing cowboy plays that love song
And here I am just missing you again
Lyrics from the song Please Mr Please, from the album Have You Never Been Mellow (1975)

Olivia Newton-John’s Greatest Hits (1977) was the very first vinyl record that I had bought.
I no longer have the vinyl record, but I do have the songs in my digital collection of .mp4 songs.

ONJ’s Greatest Hits— the vinyl record pressed for the South African market.
The selection of songs was a little different from the Greatest Hits sold elsewhere in the world. It had ONJ’s rendition of John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’,  as well as her recording of the 19th century American murder ballad ‘Banks of the Ohio’.
