    The Dubliners - Whiskey in the Jar (best version!!!)
    Eric C.



    Uploaded on Nov 28, 2010
    In Youtube there exists so many versions of dubliners "whiskey in the jar" but in my opinion this version ist the best of all. Sadly I don't found it in youtube, so I decided to upload it for you guys. (Additional information: For several years I compose my own music. "La Nostalgia" (find it in my channel) is one example. I am interested if you like it - please comment.)

    The Rising of the Moon - Irish folk song
    Sportymike



    Uploaded on Apr 7, 2009
    Na Casaidigh with the popular Irish song about the 1798 Rebellion in Ireland. Na Casaidigh or The Cassidys are a traditional Irish family band from the Gaoth Dobhair (Gweedore) Gaeltacht in County Donegal.

    Lyrics:

    Oh then, tell me Seán O'Farrell, tell me why you hurry so?
    "Hush a bhuachaill, hush and listen", and his cheeks were all aglow,
    "I bear orders from the captain:- get you ready quick and soon
    For the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon"
    By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon,

    For the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon

    "And come tell me Seán O'Farrell where the gath'rin is to be?"
    "In the old spot by the river, right well known to you and me.
    One more word for signal token:- whistle out the marchin' tune,
    With your pike upon your shoulder, by the rising of the moon."
    By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon
    With your pike upon your shoulder, by the rising of the moon.

    Out from many a mud wall cabin eyes were watching through the night,
    Many a manly chest was throbbing, for the blessed morning light.
    Murmurs ran along the valleys like the banshee's lonely croon
    And a thousand pikes were flashing at the rising of the moon.
    At the rising of the moon, at the rising of the moon.
    And a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon.

    There beside the singing river that black mass of men was seen,
    High above their shining weapons flew their own beloved green.
    "Death to every foe and traitor! Forward strike the marching tune."
    And hurrah my boys for freedom; 'tis the rising of the moon".
    Tis the rising of the moon, tis the rising of the moon
    And hurrah my boys for freedom; 'Tis the rising of the moon".

    Well they fought for poor old Ireland, and full bitter was their fate,
    Oh what glorious pride and sorrow, fills the name of ninety-eight!
    Yet, thank God, e'en still are beating hearts in manhood burning noon,
    Who would follow in their footsteps, at the risin' of the moon
    At the rising of the moon, At the rising of the moon
    Who would follow in their footsteps, at the risin' of the moon.

ABC then brought the show back from July 3, 1955 to June 23, 1956. In 1954, comedian Jonathan Winters made his TV debut on the DuMont version of the show. Also in 1954, Diahann Carroll appeared on the show as a contestant four weeks in a row."

    Beatles -- Live -- Japan [ film highlights -- improved audio! ]
    Dave Nevins



    Published on Mar 31, 2017
    There's a new Beatles movie disc, reduced on Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/Eight-Days-Wee...

    Also, I have a book on the "voice of Love":
    http://www.amazon.com/Surrendering-Ab...

    --

    If curious, this film Includes clips, not to chronicle the event like a news report, but to paint a brief atmosphere of the gig.

    Q: Why isn't the entire concert shown? YouTube and Apple Records block this worldwide; so to receive a passing grade, only highlights are shown. Goal was also not to document the concert, but to simply provide an atmosphere flavor. In addition, The entire world has heard the song is 1 million times by now so there is something interesting to be offered by a short, condensed, appetizer version of the set. How ever, full concert is available here, with a little less primitive resolution, but muted sound:

    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4lm...

    My attempt here was to highlight enjoyment of the music by:

    -- Removing the intra-song dialogue
    -- Bringing up the bass a bit
    -- Bringing up the treble to better hear vocals/guitars
    -- Zooming in slightly to help fill out the frame
    -- Using analog multi-band compressors were used to preserve the vintage feel

    Note that video brightness levels varied, and wasn't worth the effort to correct. I did what I could with the worst ones.

    Oddly, all front-on shots were squished too tall on one side and too wide on the other, so the two halves had to be re-composited! That was a pain, but made a big difference. Compare it to the other sources and you'll see. Strange how it happened – – almost looks like the film was melted somehow.

    (Note that this first version I put out of this was in Oct 2015 -- but this second version has clearer treble, a darker look and a few tighter edits.)

    Set list:

    00:04 -- Rock and Roll Music
    00:34 -- She's a Woman
    01:28 -- If I Needed Someone
    02:12 -- Day Tripper
    03:06 -- Baby's in Black
    03:44 -- I Feel Fine
    04:39 -- Yesterday
    05:24 -- I Wanna Be Your Man
    06:06 -- Nowhere Man
    07:06 -- Paperback Writer
    07:43 -- I'm Down

    Enjoy!

    CLIP DESCRIPTION:
    The Stranger (Clint Eastwood) shoots down three henchman while getting an old-fashioned shave in a barber shop.

    FILM DESCRIPTION:
    "Who are you?" the dwarf Mordecai (Billy Curtis) asks Clint Eastwood's Stranger at the end of Eastwood's 1973 western High Plains Drifter. "You know," he replies, before vanishing into the desert heat waves near California's Mono Lake. Adapting the amorally enigmatic and violent Man With No Name persona from his films with Sergio Leone, Eastwood's second film as director begins as his drifter emerges from that heat haze and rides into the odd lakefront settlement of Lago. Lago's residents are not particularly friendly, but once the Stranger shows his skills as a gunfighter, they beg him to defend them against a group of outlaws (led by Eastwood regular Geoffrey Lewis) who have a score to settle with the town. He agrees to train them in self-defense, but Mordecai and innkeeper's wife Sarah Belding (Verna Bloom) soon suspect that the Stranger has another, more personal agenda. By the time the Stranger makes the corrupt community paint their town red and re-name it "Hell," it is clear that he is not just another gunslinger. With its fragmented flashbacks and bizarre, austere locations, High Plains Drifter's stylistic eccentricity lends an air of unsettling eeriness to its revenge story, adding an uncanny slant to Eastwood's antiheroic westerner. Seminal western hero John Wayne was so offended by Eastwood's harshly revisionist view of a frontier town that he wrote to Eastwood, objecting that this was not what the spirit of the West was all about. Eastwood's audience, however, was not so put off, and an exhibitors' poll named Eastwood a top box-office draw for 1973.
