    When I lived in Florida in Jupiter, Burt Reynolds was in often. Nice guy.

    You would've thought that any other great actor who had played Ralph Kramden, the lead role in The Hustler, and also Life of Reilly, would have run out of other off-the-charts roles, this time as a supporting character as Smokey.

    Between all the other truckers called up on the CB radio, switching lanes to block Smokey, to allow Burt's escape, then Gleason's insistence that he was the law, which was to be upheld. That was the PERFECT way to keep that funny movie going.

    THEN when the movie ended as the roof or something of the car is chopped off as Smokey fumed some hilarious rant to no end, as Burt and Sally Field drove off. Wow.

    ---------

    I remember Burt saying that he made some big mistake with Sally Field. Maybe he wanted to marry her? Sally said he will always be a part of her history, but I'm not sure if that is in a good or not so good way.

    He also played a similar part on The Bob Newhart Show, but every time I saw him there I still thought of him as Major Healey.

    Marty Balin, a patron of the 1960s "San Francisco Sound" both as founder and lead singer of the Jefferson Airplane and co-owner of the club where the Airplane and other Bay Area bands performed, has died. He was 76.

    "Every time I did something, it was always Grace Slick and the Airplane and Grace Slick and the Starship," he told Relix magazine in 1993. "Even if it was my voice. I've even done songs of mine on my own and people come up to me and say, 'I'm surprised you do that song. I always thought it was Grace's.' For a while that hurt my feelings, but there's nothing I can do about it."

    Surrealistic Pillow is one of my favorite LPs of all time. Balin’s vox on a few of those tracks remind me of what was going on around that time in England (think Lindisfarne, early Hawkwind, Fairport Convention), and he provided a good counterbalance to Slick’s vox as well. Mama’s & Papa’s sorta stuff.

    Aaaaaand let me just add this: Jorma Kaukonen’s work on Embryonic Journey? Effortlessly impossible, and just the perfect segue into White Rabbit.

    Rest in peace, Marty.

    Pillow was the third album I ever bought, and the oldest one I am still (very) proud to own. (The first two were forgettable.)

    Just so we don't agree totally on something and cause a rift in the space/time continuum, Fairport's first album was not released until 1968, so they were a little later.
