stray thoughts

i wish ... Jimmy Page would get more concert-only performances out on CD, digitally cleaned and sparkling. Like their cover of "As Long As I Have You," by R&B pianist Garnet Mimms, which (like most covers) transformed into a medley that included "Fresh Garbage" by Spirit, "Shake" by Sam Cooke, the blues-steeped "Susie Q", and the traditional song "Mockingbird" -- "Hush little baby, don't say a word, Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird." Or their version of Howling Wolf's "Killing Floor", which included a cool loopy bass line, embellished by a drum solo of Bonzo's "Pat's Delight".
why does ... Madonna's Keep It Together from Like a Prayer sound prophetically like Janet Jackson's If from Janet?
