AIN'T JUST BLUES IT'S SHOWTIME: Hard times, heartache, and - download pdf or read online

By Carl Gustafson,Talon Gustafson,John Sarkett

An offbeat, surprisingly compelling on-the-road magazine through blues singer, Carl Gustafson, who says he does not like tune, in truth, he prefers silence. (Calling to brain keyboard immortal and kooky Glenn Gould who he stated he did not like piano music.)

Who is Carl Gustafson, you could ask? An iconoclast, a insurgent, a provocateur.

A flag bearer for human dignity?

An Indiana Jones variety adventurer, seeker of fact, justice and a greater American manner? definite, certain, definitely.

An outsider artist, a Henry Darger operating in obscurity on his grand imaginative and prescient for his oversize cloth of lifestyles, and wishing to percentage it? Oh, convinced.

And combine this in, too: one half Edward Abbey for his meticulous energy of statement ("I want that mankind, wealthy or bad, might at the least plant a unmarried flower or signal their signature upon their lifestyles in a few particular means. in the event that they do, i'll discover it."), one half Thoreau logging nature notes, one half Kerouac at the highway, one half Dylan Thomas raging into the nice evening, and eventually nineteenth century French composer Hector Berlioz writing his funny and insightful Evenings within the Orchestra - basically this time the orchestra is a blues band.

Another half anthropologist Margaret Mead residing one of the natives, one other half Zen grasp together with his Buddhist attractiveness, reluctant or another way, of all issues round him on any given day, he rigorously observes and notates the entire minutia round him on any given day, all of the whereas maintaining a talk with himself, occasionally bemused, occasionally indignant, occasionally transcendent.

The writing here's paradoxical, maddening, challenging via turns....and then suddenly riveting. you will see your self in those pages - that is the riveting - after which, i feel you could simply see the chance of your greater self, too. that is the magical.
