"Hi There Folks!"
Arthur's voice salute us.The time was 22:30.The Rodon club was full.
His band started the first chords from "My little red book",the audience
went crazy..."Orange skies" , "Your mind and we..".He stops... The Forever
Changes String & Horn Ensemble gets on stage.4 violins,1 cello,2 trumpets
and 1 trombone plus Dave,Rusty,David,Mike and ARTHUR. We had the chance to
hear the whole Forever Changes album as it was written,full with strings &
horns.Even now i still can't believe it.
Arthur's voice was so brilliant COOL...The band and the ensemble were
excellent.They just didn't believe what was happening against the crowd. We
new all the lyrics.Some of us ,even all the chords,the solos... They made us
very happy and we did that to them with our extremely psychedelic
behaviour.After the Forever Changes album the Ensemble gets of the
stage."Robert Modgommery" ,"Signed D.C."(excellent guitar job from
Mike),"August","Everybody's gotta live/Instant Kharma","Always seen your
face",My Flash on you" and "Singing cowboy".
I and my pal Sakis had the chance to shake hands with Arthur .The audience
screamed for more.Arthur was in a good mood (actually we are responsible for
that),and he gets on stage for once more.I Screamed to him "oop-ip-ip
oop-ip-ip yeah!!"...They played "7 And 7 Is".
They left.The time was 00:15.I stood there...Still...Speachless...
The whole band came down to the crowd(except
Arthur)...Talking...Drinking...Laughing...Mike has signed my tiket.
The time was 2:10. Arthur Lee has left the building...I stood there
Still...Speachless...My mind is still there.
Arthur you are always welcome here in our little psychedelic country.
