In the Presence of the Lord

Spent a wonderful day yesterday being interviewed on camera -- along with NY Mary -- for the forthcoming documentary The Power Pop Movie. Filmmaker Justin Fielding is as nice a guy as I've ever met, and I can't thank him enough for the opportunity to be involved with the project. (And also for the world's greatest Jewish joke.)

We'll keep you posted on developments with the film -- currently scheduled for release in 2016 -- as they develop.

Meanwhile, please enjoy "Forbidden Nights." The first track on the forthcoming (in September) Darlene Love album.

Produced (as is the whole shebang) and written by the great Little Steven.

Obviously, this is as retro as it comes, but Steven really has this stuff down, and Love's singing is nothing short of miraculous. I, for one, am grateful.

This all sounds so terrific! The movie, Darlene's new CD, can't wait for all of it to surface. Congrats on the interview!

Had the pleasure of seeing her headline Light of Day in Asbury Park a few years ago. I didn't expect to enjoy her as much as I did, but frankly, I was blown away.

What? You're going to keep The World's Greatest Jewish Joke from us?

I regret the error.

Certainly no big deal; I just thought it was interesting that Elvis C. would pen such an old-school tune. As you said, retro as it comes. And pretty damn good.

Some great things came out of Hawthorne. Used to dig the Blossoms on Shindig. You knew they were gonna be live and spot on. Her new album ought to sell well considering all involved. The girl is close to eighty. Can she still deliver live?

And will she do this number? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv69RAxE0-Q
