Clyfford Styll - 1953 (1953)


‘My paintings have no titles because I do not wish them to be considered illustrations or pictorial puzzles’, Still wrote. ‘If properly made visible they speak for themselves.’ In a letter discussing this work, he explained that the red at the lower edge was intended to contrast with and therefore emphasise the depths of the blue. He saw the yellow wedge at the top as ‘a reassertion of the human context - a gesture of rejection of any authoritarian rationale or system of politico-dialectical dogma.’

I wake up in the morning, just glad my boots are on

Instead of empty in the whispering grasses,

Down the Five at Forest Lawn

On the set, the makeup girl brings me two raw eggs and a shot of gin

When I give it all up for that little blue pill

That promises to bring it all back to you again


Ride me down easy, ride me down easy friend

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again


Here in the canyons above Sunset, the desert don’t give up the fight

A coyote with someone’s Chihuahua in its teeth skitters ‘cross my veranda in the


Some lost sheep from Oklahoma sips her Mojito down at the Whiskey Bar

Smiles and says she thinks she remembers me from that commercial with the

credit card


Hell these days there ain’t no more, now there’s just again

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again


Sundays I take my El Camino, throw my saddle in and go

East to the desert where the charros, they still ride and rope

Our American brothers cross the wire and bring the old ways with them

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again


Once I was shot by John Wayne, yea, it was towards the end

That one scene's bought me a thousand drinks, set me up and I’ll tell it for you



Here’s to the cowboys, and the riders in the whirlwind

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again

And the western stars are shining bright again


Tonight the riders on Sunset are smothered in the Santa Ana winds

The western stars are shining bright again

C’mon and ride me down easy, ride me down easy friend

‘Cause tonight the western stars are shining bright again


I woke up this morning just glad my boots were on

A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

Bob Dylan "Hard Rain" LIVE performance [Full Song] 1975


ROLLING THUNDER REVUE: A BOB DYLAN STORY BY MARTIN SCORSESE captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975, and the joyous music that Bob Dylan performed that fall. This performance of Hard Rain is look at a piece of essential American folklore, never before seen and beautifully restored. Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese creates a one-of-a-kind movie experience: part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream. Featuring Joan Baez, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, Sam Shepard, Allen Ginsberg, and Bob Dylan giving his first on-camera interview in over a decade. The film goes beyond mere reclamation of Dylan’s extraordinary music—it’s a roadmap into the wild country of artistic self-reinvention.
