Hello world!

We’ve been making some (beautiful) noise over at our Facebook Page – http://www.facebook.com/LAFPmusic- and thought that it’s about time that we add to that with a presence here.

One advantage here being, of course, that posts and comments don’t ‘roll down’ as they do on fb – you can always find what we’ve (and our Friends *** INCLUDING YOU) have had to say about the events and Artists that we discussed, and the old Music Posters (circa 1960s) that we’ve displayed.  Each of those discussion have been (or soon will be) ‘archived’ here on this 1960s LAFP Old Music Posters Project website, for your easy reference and a real trip back to the best past ever.

More than that, we’re taking the time on this site to expand on all the material that we transfer from our Facebook Page… adding even more interesting tidbits and additional LA Free Press Archive Items!  And whether you commented there or not… you’ve the chance to add to the discussion here!  Hope to see you soon…. will, we’re sure, add to the fun of it all icon smile Hello world!

Please don’t forget… here, like there, you are always welcome to request that we hunt down LA Free Press pieces from long ago – mentions of Artists and events that you may have an interest in – or even remember! – from long ago (our hey day being 1964 thru 1971).

EACH day, in fact, you can VOTE FOR 1960s ARTISTS that you would like to see featured…

VOTE HERE:  http://www.lafpmusic.com/whos-next-you-tell-us-vote-now-thru-midnight-sunday

The FBB, as a band, were innovative; ALL talented musicians (none of whom were brothers). Its music had a far reaching impact on many musicians, among them Dylan and Emmylou Harris, and their influence on such groups as the Eagles and many others is certainly evident.   Read More

Tag: H / Hugh Masekela
Hugh Masekela Eric Burdon described Hugh Masekela's music as "black as night". It was more than that :  Growing up in South Africa, watching the 1950 Kirk Douglas film Young Man With A Horn inspired him to immediately take up the trumpet, and in 1959, he and a group of like-minded musicians formed The Jazz Epistles, the first South African Jazz group to record and play to record-breaking audiences.
