Screener Versions – Alphabetical by Song
“No Love Is Sorrow” – Pentangle – screener
The folk-jazz group Pentangle blended influences including blues and early music. Well respected and loved by the British folk scene, Pentangle made many appearances on BBC radio and television. “Folk Baroque” was a signature technique of theirs using inter-dependent guitar parts that while complex, flowed smoothly and sweetly. This is mirrored in the vocal duet of “No Love Is Sorrow” in the harmonies as well as the distinct vocal tones. Counterpoint and symmetry. Lovely. Thanks to the BBC for saving the tape!

“Our Lips Are Sealed” – Go-Go’s – screener
One of the best things to come out of the California punk scene was the Go-Go’s. Soft vocals with great harmonies plus serious rock chops on instruments combine beauty and the beat for kick-butt fun. This cut from their first album is one of my favorites that always makes me smile. Now it’s your turn!

“Peaches En Regalia” – Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention – screener
Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention continue to influence many areas of music long after their wonderful run. Their fusions of Jazz, Rock, Blues, R&B, and just about everything else helped create and re-define Fusion. If they aren’t on your iPod already, they should be. One of Frank’s favorites, “Peaches En Regalia” was a mainstay of live performances continued in the 21st Century by his son Dweezil through Zappa Plays Zappa. Finally you get a chance to actually see it through the techno-mage miracle of Laser Show Dynamic. ® To Freak Out with more Zappa go to Zappa.com and iTunes.

“Riviera Paradise” – Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble
This one is close to home for me in many ways. I lived most of my life in Austin, Texas, where SRV was kind of an adopted son, and Auditorium Shores a personal favorite place for concerts and buzzing joggers with my radio controlled airplanes. “Riviera Paradise” remains my very favorite SRV & DT piece. Featuring the talents of the entire band in a way perfect for Austin in the moonlight, (and the moon-tower light) “Riviera Paradise” is a love letter to the city whose music scene they helped to shape. Framing this piece is the poster art for this “Rites of Spring” concert by my friend Nels Jacobson – a.k.a. jagmo. (printing by Terry Raines) Their creations spanning decades are featured in “The Art of Rock” and “The Art of Modern Rock.” Musical and artistic vision come together on ‘The Third Coast.’ If you don’t know Austin, Texas, this is a very good place to start. And if you do – welcome home… For more SRV and Double Trouble go to SRVofficial.com and iTunes. For more Austintatious experiences go to Laser Show Dynamic on Facebook!

“Shake It Up” – The Cars – Screener Version
An ’80’s blast of fun with the bright red bling of your favorite girl’s smiling lips. “Shake It Up” rocks one of the tightest guitar bridges you’ll ever hear. Be warned – symptoms include the irresistable urge to play air guitar right along with it. Dim the lights and crank up the sound!

“Singing My Song” – The Partridge Family . One of the best kept secrets in music is the quality of studio musicianship, some of which is phenomenal. The Partridge Family is mostly known for the vocals by David Cassidy and Shirley Jones. The musicians backing them called themselves The Wrecking Crew. They did great work that sold millions and never got the spotlight. This is a piece that shows their stuff – tight, clean, and professional – but with more soul than you’d expect for the clean-cut image of a family TV show.
C’mon – get happy and groove to sight and sound of this Laser Show Dynamic experience! It features a background inspired by the 1920’s artist Mondrian, which inspired the design of the iconic Partridge Famiy bus. For more Partridge Family music and the show itself, go to iTunes.
