Every time I think of Joan Baez I see the beautiful young girl who was all over the news in the 60s I graduated from high school in so you see where I am coming from here. Joan has the guts to sing the No Woman she wants still till today. But what happened? She got old and has grey hair? How could this have happened?
What, you say it is over 40 years since the 60s ended? That can't be. Joan has to still be a young rebellious kid with a lot of opinions, most of which I agreed with, some of which I didn't, but so what? No one exemplifies the turmoil and promise of that era like Joan does.
Some phenomenal things have happened in the meantime, and some atrocious things. I saw the Beach Boys in concert last summer they were great by the way and they looked just like I expected them to, senior citizens who can still play and sing. But Joan Baez needs to be about 28 years old forever. I know I am not writing a review of this album, trust me it is beautiful. This woman has a gorgeous voice and sings like an angel. Who else sings these songs that isn't obscure?
I love this woman and her artistic integrity. Do yourself and buy this. Although the album received some critical acclaim, it did not sell many records. That changed dramatically in when Fugees released their second album, The Score. This was a dynamite album, one of the most successful records of that year, and remains one of the most acclaimed and best-selling hip-hop records. The Score spawned two best-selling singles, both covers.
I believe this video is from The Fugees produce a hip-hop version of the great Bob Marley tune. Fu-Gee-La was also a single from the album The Score, and was the best-selling song ever by Fugees. It is classic Fugees hip-hop. One year later ineach member of Fugees began working on their own projects. Wyclef Jean recorded a solo album and began to produce records for other groups. And Pras Michel collaborated on a single that was included in the soundtrack for the film Bulworth.
It looked like the Fugees were breaking up. However, from time to time they re-grouped for a live concert or movie soundtrack. Then inFugees mounted a tour of Europe, to generally positive reviews. However, an album that was supposed to be released following the reunion tour never materialized. Inboth Pras Michel and Wyclef Jean made remarks that suggested they would never again collaborate with Lauryn Hill. It now appears that the Fugees are history.
Wyclef Jean continues to work with Haitian emergency relief efforts and youth education projects. Pras Michel is active in political movements in Haiti and projects to help the homeless in L. And Lauryn No Woman has worked on projects to increase the number of women in the music industry.
So, Fugees shot onto the music scene in the mids, blazed a No Woman through the hip-hop community, and then flamed out. However, their music was extremely influential, and each of these musicians still individually contributes to the pop music scene.
We wish them all success. It is an a capella version called No Woman, No Drive. Here it is. This is a video that pokes fun at the second-class status of women in Saudi Arabia. It particularly focuses on the Saudi practice of forbidding women to drive a car. It became a viral hit, and the video has been accessed over 11 million times. Hisham Fageeh, a Saudi artist and activist who created the video, has overdubbed himself singing and whistling all or most?
He also No Woman in the video in a range of different costumes. I wish him all health and happiness, as Saudi officials are not known for their sense of humor. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

Clouds of teargas drifted into the stadium; the Wailers were overcome with fumes and left the stage. The following evening, Bob Marley and the Wailers returned to Rufaro Stadium and put on a free show for a crowd of nearly 80, Bob Marley and The Wailers embarked on a major European tour in the spring ofbreaking attendance records in several countries.

Bob courageously fought the disease for eight months, even traveling to Germany to undergo treatment at the clinic of Dr.

For the Zimbabwean freedom fighters that listened to Bob Marley, inspiration and strength were drawn from his empowering lyrics. A generation later a group of political refugees from Sierra Leone living in Guinean concentration camps and traumatized by years of bloody warfare in their country, found through the music of Bob Marley, inspiration to form their own band and write and record their own songs.
