Decades of Musical History: A Tribute to Legendary Musicians

Sly Stone with Reel-to-Reel Tape Player

Johnny Cash Deep in Thought

Most of the photographs of the legendary musicians in this video, representing decades of musical history, might be familiar to a number of music fans: Johnny Cash deep in thought in 1959, Bob Dylan sitting at a piano wearing his Ray-Ban sunglasses in 1965.  Others have rarely been seen, including the 1973 picture of Sly Stone in front of a tape player and the dramatic 1963 photograph of Muhammad Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, recording his spoken-word album I Am the Greatest! Photographs of other major musicians that are included in this music video include pictures of Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the late folk-singer Steve Goodman, Willie Nelson and many others.

The music accompanying the video is The Band’s Tears of Rage.

Sex in the Lower East Side: The 100 Lovers of Jesus Reynolds

Sex in the Lower East Side: The 100 Lovers of Jesus Reynolds

The 100 Lovers of Jesus Reynolds, directed by Ilya Chaiken, is a short film that was shot on a shoestring budget, but it’s marked with a sense of gritty, tenacious elegance. In 2004, the film was an Official Selection of The Sundance Film Festival.

The film begins with a humorous, but bittersweet meditation about an East Village girl’s many, many love affairs. It then focuses on a particular one-night stand, which unfortunately happened to take place the night before the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. The tryst seems to become a poignant portrayal of an important event in the young heroine’s life. Yes, it seems to be, but one is left with an ending that is both beautiful, yet at the same time hauntingly elusive: One senses that something has changed, but we’re not quite sure what.
