ONE SUPER LIVE VERSION!! Here's Panama and myself (The Doc) on Tour in France in the Alps performing the Billy Joe Shaver classic 'TRY AND TRY AGAIN'.
We did some 10.000 kms in that Sahara-Summer of 2003 during our first Tour in France for 3 weeks. We drove all over France that summer including sharing an appartment in Paris on the Boulevard Voltaire near Place de la Nation and were truely hoping for some cool air by the time we had to hit the Alps for this very famous BluesFestival. While driving up through a steamy hot Dordogne - coming from the Westcoast near Bordeaux, we found out that the hottest area in France for the next days was to be.... THE ALPS... yeah! 42 degrees Celsius at an Altitude of 2000+..... 'Encroyable' as the French say! (as in: unbelievable!) (Sad detail: well over 15.000 older French people died that summer because of this heatwave..)
We shared the bill with the French bands 'Mary-Lou' and 'Doo The Doo' as well as the New Orleans (USA) based trio lead by 'Jeff Zima'.
(If you're futher interested in details of the road please visit www.panamaredmusic.com and go to essays, lots of stuff to read there!)
Hope you like it. I LOVE IT !!
Couldn't keep it in the vaults any longer, it just NEEDS to be out there.
Still thanking Billy Joe Shaver for his show in my former Steakhouse 'Witte Paarden' , it's a blessing having met this very fine man who indeed showed a lot of people besides me how to try and try again.
'So, if at first you don't succeed... TRY AND TRY AGAIN...' YEAH !!!
