I was watching an episode of "Pawn Stars" and a piece of Neil Diamond memorabilia appeared. I wasn't paying much attention to the episode until Rick Harrison said: "Neil Diamond, The Jewish Elvis." He went on to say interesting things about the other "king of pop," which I filed away under "music trivia." It is a not-so-hot August afternoon, though the past few days with absent/weak trade winds have kept me up, waiting for "the cool of the evening" way past the 10 O' Clock news. Submitted for your approval is another "Hot August Night" in 1972, from "Solitary Man" to "Coming To America." (If only Elvis Aron Presley had the insight to live (a relatively) clean life, they might have appeared on the same stage?)
It's August, and there's precious little shade in Furnace Flats (which is "96 degrees in the shade";). I had forgotten that "Hot August Night" was the name of Neil Diamond's legendary concert, which used the opening line from "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show." How's August in your town/city/region? Out here, Hurricane and tropical storm remnants are leaving Hawai'i greener (and soggier) than expected. Locally, it gets hotter next month, as Autumn cool flits past before the winds of Winter. Oh well, green brush is preferable to weekly brush fires.;)
