Kooper Sessions

Al Kooper introduces Shuggie Otis

CS 9951 Columbia

Side One: Bury my Body; Double or Nothing; One Room Country Shack; Looking for a Home

Side Two: Slow Goonbash Blues; Shuggie’s Old Time; Shuggie’s Shuffle

Kooper Session is the second-in-line of the Super Session albums featuring singer-songwriter Al Kooper. Joining Kooper in the guitar slot is 15-year-old phenomenon Shuggie Otis, son of legendary rhythm and blues pioneer Johnny Otis.

Divided into two halves, “The Songs” (a quartet of arranged gospel and rhythm and blues tracks) and “The Blues” (a trio of improvised blues tracks), the album, like Super Session before it, was quickly recorded and featured short, succinct tracks (“Double or Nothing”, “One Room Country Shack”) and fluid, drawn out jams highlighting the talents of the artists (“12:15 Slow Goonbash Blues”, “Bury My Body”).

From Kooper Session, Al Kooper belts it out on piano and vocals with 15-yr. old Shuggie Otis on guitar. Shuggie’s the son of the legendary rhythm & blues pioneer, Johnny Otis. Recorded in 1969 and released the following year.

    Karzai defends Afghan fraud claim


    Afghan President Hamid Karzai has defended an extraordinary outburst he made against the West about fraud in his country’s presidential election.

    Mr Karzai told the BBC he still believed the US and others played a role in perpetrating the fraud.

    His tirade caused dismay in many capitals, including Washington, where the White House called it “troubling”.

    But Mr Karzai denied his comments last Thursday had dented his relationship with his key allies.

    “What I said about the election was all true,” he said in his first public remarks since the comments. “It does not reduce from our partnership; it adds to it.”

    He said his warning to the West that it could be seen as an invader if it did not change its behaviour was a message to allies that their relationship had to be a partnership between sovereign nations.

    Awkward visit?

    Speaking to the BBC during a visit to the southern city of Kandahar, Mr Karzai said Nato countries were rich and strong, while Afghanistan was poor but with a powerful identity and history.

    He had been visiting Kandahar with the commander of Nato-led forces, General Stanley McChrystal.

    I asked the general if the timing of their visit was awkward. He replied it would have been more awkward if the president had not invited him to come.

    He said it emphasised the need for a partnership.

    “I don’t ignore what is written or said, but I try to focus on my lane, as a military commander,” he said.

    The general’s comments underline that no matter how troubling the president’s comments are, his allies know they still need to find ways to work with him.

    Too much is at stake – the president and the general were in Kandahar in the midst of preparations for the next major military offensive in the south against the Taliban

    It is a very sensitive campaign in a very strategic area.

    General McChrystal said if it succeeded, it had the potential to send a huge signal to Afghans across the country.

    (There must be a way to shut this guy up.)

    “If you and the international community pressure me more, I swear that I am going to join the Taliban.”

  3. blessedistruth Says:


    The comments come just two days after making similar statements on Thursday, when he said the Taliban would become the legitimate resistance if the international community continues to interfere in Afghanistan’s internal politics.

    Allissa Rubin’s new analysis at The New York Times neatly sums up the quandary facing the West in trying to wage a counterinsurgency with Karzai at the helm of the Afghan government.

    Peter Galbraith’s quote is sure to raise some eyebrows.

    “There is no point in having troops in a mission that cannot be accomplished,” said Peter W. Galbraith, former United Nations deputy special representative for Afghanistan, who was dismissed over what his superiors called Mr. Galbraith’s advocacy of Mr. Karzai’s removal — an allegation Mr. Galbraith has denied.

    “The mission might be important, but if it can’t be achieved, there is no point in sending these troops into battle.

    Part of the problem is that counterinsurgency requires a credible local partner.”

    (Please, let’s not abandon Afghani women and girls because of this asshole!)

    ANALYSIS-U.S. faces domestic fallout from Karzai outburst



    What is embarrassing for Washington is the timing of Karzai’s comments, less than a week after Obama made his first trip to Afghanistan since he took office in January 2009.

    Obama pressed Karzai to follow through on promises after last year’s fraud-plagued election to tackle corruption and govern in a way that helped rather than hindered the U.S. counter-insurgency strategy.

    David Obey, who chairs the powerful House of Representatives committee that appropriates money for the war, echoed some of the doubts in Congress.

    “Mr. Karzai’s performance demonstrates why I have raised the question of whether or not, in the government of Afghanistan, we have a tool that is in any way reliable in implementing our policies in that region,” Obey said.

    Representative Ike Skelton urged Karzai to retract or clarify his statements but suggested Americans should not overreact.

    “I do not think that we should allow some intemperate remarks clearly designed for domestic political purposes to undermine what I continue to believe is the best strategy to protect American security,” Skelton said.

    Senator Russ Feingold, an outspoken proponent of a timetable to bring U.S. troops home, said even before Karzai’s recent comments that the Obama administration’s strategy depended upon a “less-than-reliable partner.”

    “Rather than pursuing a large-scale, open-ended military strategy in Afghanistan, we should focus on achievable counterterrorism goals,” said Feingold.

    (Surely we must have some dirt on this dirtbag.)

    U.S. to Afghan Leader: Watch What You Say

    State Department Calls Karzai’s Suggestion that he Might Join the Taliban a ‘Head-Scratcher’


    The rhetorical divide between the United States and Afghan President Hamid Karzai showed no signs of abating today: Karzai has spoken out against the U.S. and NATO presence in his country twice in the past week and now the United States is suggesting he watch what he say.

    “What he says does have an impact back here in the United States and he should choose his words carefully,” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley warned today.

    In the latest incident on Saturday, during a closed-door meeting with members of the Afghan parliament, Karzai suggested he might join the Taliban, according to members of parliament who were in the meeting.

    “If I am not able to get these things [change the electoral law] and I can’t uphold the sovereignty of this country, this will be turning into an occupation. We have to fight an occupation, and one has to join them,” one lawmaker quoted Karzai as saying, according to ABC News’ Nicholas Schifrin.

    Today Crowley called Karzai’s suggestion that me might join the Taliban a “head-scratcher.”

    White House spokesman Robert Gibbs called the remarks “troubling” and said, “on behalf of the American people, we’re frustrated with the remarks.”

    Karzai Threatened to Quit Politics: Lawmakers


    Several members of the Afghan Parliament say Afghan President Hamid Karzai threatened to quit politics and join the Taliban over the weekend.

    Lawmakers say Karzai told them during a closed-door meeting Saturday “if I come under foreign pressure, I might join the Taliban.”

    Karzai threatened to quit politics if he continued to come under outside pressure to reform.

    Karzai also demanded to know why the Afghan Parliament rejected legal reforms that would have strengthened the president’s authority over the country’s electoral institutions.

    White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says reports Karzai threatened to quit politics and join the Taliban if he continued to receive pressure from the Western backers to reform his government are troubling.

    (Troubling?! Quit, Karzai, Quit! You’re of no earthly good to anyone, least of all yourself.)

  8. blessedistruth Says:

    While the United States tried to assess how serious its erstwhile ally in Afghanistan was about joining the group America is sworn to defeat, it was dealing with a sophisticated attack on its consulate in Peshawar — a critical CIA outpost dating to the Afghan-Soviet war of the 1980s.

  9. sisterrosetta Says:

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai has telephoned Washington to allay concerns about a speech in which he criticized Western involvement in his country and even warned that he might join forces with the Taliban. Last week Karzai accused the UN and members of the US-led coalition of trying to unseat him and tamper with the results of the recent parliamentary elections. Meanwhile, Assistant Secretary of State Philip Crowley told reporters in Washington that in his telephone linkup with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Mr. Karzai had complained about media “misinterpreting” the true meaning of what he had said.      

  10. sisterrosetta Says:

    U.S. officials worry that Karzai’s anti-Western rhetoric could erode public support for the war back home.

    NATO warns karzai

  12. sisterrosetta Says:

    NATO has warned Afghan President Hamid Karzai against undermining public support for the alliance’s efforts in Afghanistan. NATO spokesman James Appathurai said today the international community and NATO are making “enormous efforts and sacrifices” to support the Afghan people against terrorism. “We hope and expect that this is recognized by the Afghan people, including at the highest levels,” he added.The statement comes following Karzai’s recent remarks to Afghan lawmakers that the United States was interfering in Afghan affairs, and that the Taliban would become a legitimate resistance movement if Washington continued to do so. Karzai has also drawn criticism after he accused foreign powers of meddling in last year’s fraud-marred presidential election.

  13. sisterrosetta Says:

    This is a tough time, but the message has to be clear: Either the Afghan government must appreciate the muscle we bring to their fight and let use it, or maybe we should go home. I know, I know…if we bail out, we’ll leave the field in a very tenuous state and heaven knows the Taliban crowd would start dancing in the streets even before the dust settled. But for my money there is almost nothing more dangerous than being “halfway” in a fight; and right now that is where our partner is putting us. Just a thought.

    well you got the sugar
    and you got enough salt
    and you got a taste that can make my breath come
    to a halt
    my appetite gets tempted
    every time you’re around
    and I thank the powers that be for this sweet man
    that I’ve found
    but of all your flavors the sweetest to me
    is the way you let me just be

    well I didn’t know
    what I was looking for
    til you put this taste in my mouth
    filled me up ’til I didn’t need more
    you might find me nasty
    if I shout it out loud
    but to find myself a lover like this
    well I think I should be proud
    but of all your flavors the sweetest to me
    is the way you let me just be

    my mind gets so hectic
    like a rush hour street
    then you come groovin’ round my corners
    and you smooth out the beat
    and you can swing me up
    and you can love me down
    and when you leave me I can still feel your rhythm
    all over town
    but of all your favors the best that you do for me
    is the way you let me just be

    do you have enough sugar?
    did you get enough salt?
    have I covered you in love spices
    ’til you’re spiced up to a fault?
    we can get all heated
    then we can cool each other down
    Then you love me down so mellow that I can’t even make a sound
    yeah well you and me we can make ourselves a good stew
    you let me be me I let you be you

    He awakes
    and puts his pride into his pockets
    and decides to walk into the day
    He does his strange dances
    for strangers he meets along the way
    sometimes it sets him free to be his own imagining
    a thing no small town would allow
    sometimes it leaves him stumbling on the street
    he takes an empty bow

    I live in a city that has no past
    I live in a city where dreams fade fast
    I live in an over ripe fruit
    where passions call out and then fall mute
    where sweetness struggles to be heard
    where shame can die without a word

    purpose paints her face for her race
    through the smoke of hidden holes and greasy fires
    She has no breath to waste on the taste
    of knowing other people’s desires
    it seems there is no fear in her
    a conspirator with the arrogance of brick and steel
    too many people to wonder about
    she’s off to make another deal

    I live in a city where stories are cast
    I live in a city where illusion grows vast
    I live on an island so bold
    its fiction captures us in its hold
    its voices somehow sing the same song
    with furtive words we sing along
    and there’s a man whose face is a pile of brittle wood
    and his smile just needs one spark
    to set it aflame

    and there’s a woman who walks with her boy bandaged up
    her face is a cup holding all his hurts
    and I see a puffed up man in a three-piece pout
    not a doubt in his mind that the city is his
    but what if all these faces were to welcome us in?
    what a place this would be what a place to live in

    Regular Life
    by Jen Chapin

    This was a sad day
    when the disappointment that was my shadow
    came into the sun
    and he slapped me dull on the forehead
    and he told me he had won

    so I sink into my gentle home
    the streets won’t mind if they don’t feel my heavy feet today
    the bed’s inclined to ask me back to stay
    but if I stay
    if I stay
    then I’ll

    so now I wonder
    is there a method to quantify both pain and joy?
    does mine hurt as bad as yours does?
    does yours feel as good as mine?

    and if you live in war
    can you still keep score
    of the burdens like bodies piled at your door?
    and the bodies that lost their chance to be more than bodies
    Just bodies

    what muffled meaning does it hold
    to be told that your story is not the only one?
    no, not the first nor the last
    not the best not the worst
    you are cursed by a regular life

    No, I’ll tell you who the criminal is.

    Bank of America for taking our money and then turning around and charging 29.99 percent interest on outstanding credit card balances.

Bush and his henchmen and Dick Cheney only having heart attacks because he was trying to SCUBA dive so much, getting in shape for blowing up the levees.  Those people are nuts.  The idea of the birth certificate?  Let’s just say that it’s not true.  Let’s just say that he’s actually born here in America.    STU:  Let’s be crazy.    GLENN:  Be out on the edge.  Be out on the edge.  Let’s just say he was born here in America and there weren’t, you know, KGB government operatives that were planting stories in the press this in Hawaii in 1962.    PAT:  Okay, but this is all silly.    GLENN:  I know.    PAT:  You know.    GLENN:  I know.    PAT:  I mean ‑‑    GLENN:  I got it.    PAT:  You are asking us to stretch.    GLENN:  I know.    PAT:  Okay.    GLENN:  Let’s just say that he’s not the Manchurian Candidate from birth.    PAT:  Okay.    GLENN:  Okay?  If you have ‑‑ if you’re playing to your base and you are trying to paint people as crazy, as tea partygoers, as hateful, as people you just can’t be around and you are trying to rally your base around you, wouldn’t one of the best things that you could do is go on the Birther thing?  Let me just give you the poll numbers on it.  With independents, 83‑8.  Was he born in America?  83% of independents say yes.  8% say no.  Among adults between 45 and 59, 82 to 8.  In the Midwest?  90‑6.  In the midwest, not the Northeast.  In the Midwest ‑‑ think Ohio ‑‑ 90‑6.  They have nothing that polls this well, nothing.  Is he an American?  Yes.  The majority says overwhelmingly yes.  So if you want to make them into moon landing people, what’s the most effective sign that you could carry at a tea party?  I mean, if you are thinking like the Obama administration, he was born in Kenya.  It’s the most effective sign to paint you into a nut job that you can carry.  Why is this tape being released now?  They need you to be perceived as a nut job!  — Watch Glenn Beck

    PHOENIX (AP) — The Republican governors of Arizona and Nevada say their states will join the legal battle against health care reform. Fourteen other states are already suing the federal government over the mandatory purchase requirement. The Arizona and Nevada governors are overriding their Democratic attorneys general, who have balked at suing.

    But in an earlier interview on the same show, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani expressed confidence in Steele, saying that the RNC chairman “should remain exactly where he is.” Giuliani noted that Republicans picked up the Virginia and New Jersey governor’s offices, as well as the seat held by Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, on Steele’s watch. “I think Michael Steele has us on a good track,” Giuliani said.

    The Internet tussle is unlikely finished. The FCC might ask for the decision to be reconsidered or seek review by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Obama administration could also turn to Congress to clarify the regulator’s authority. A more radical option, one advocated by consumer groups, would be for the FCC to legally reclassify broadband. Such a move would give the agency broad power to regulate the Internet like it was the old-fashioned landline telephone service. That sort of command-and-control apporach hardly seems a policy suited for the 21st century

    Me:  It would be tough to find a think-tank economist or policymaker who doesn’t believe a VAT is on its way as part of a strategy to raise taxes.  (As I wrote earlier this week.) And not just on the rich. On the broad middle class.  But it is no magic bullet.  A VAT can be tricky to implement and could merely fuel more government spending. This will be a major political battle. I don’t see how it happens without a financial crisis as a spur. At the very least, a VAT would have to replace much of the current tax system and accompany major entitlement reform. Where to begin!?

    Bunning single-handedly blocked an earlier extension of the benefit last month, but backed down after a successful Democratic counterattack that portrayed Republicans as careless obstructionists.Democrats will need at least one Republican to cross the aisle to move the unemployment bill. Republicans such as Susan Collins of Maine and Scott Brown of Massachusetts are among the potential crossover votes. Collins was critical of Bunning’s move last month, and Brown crossed the aisle to support a Democratic jobs bill in February.The offices of both senators said Tuesday that they are open-minded to supporting an extension, but both expressed concern over how it would be funded.“Sen. Brown believes it is important for colleagues on both sides of the political aisle to work together next week to come up with a fiscally responsible way to extend unemployment benefits without adding to the national debt,” said Brown spokesman Colin Reed.

    When friends are mad at you

    By Ephraim Sneh

    5. In the absence of “crippling sanctions” that will undermine the regime in Tehran, it is reasonable to assume that by 2011 Iran will have a nuclear bomb or two.

    6. An Israeli military campaign against Iran’s nuclear installations is likely to cripple that country’s nuclear project for a number of years. The retaliation against Israel would be painful, but bearable.

    7. U.S. President Barack Obama would find it difficult, if only for internal political reasons, to take military action against Iran and thereby open a new theater for war, in addition to Iraq and Afghanistan.

    8. The acquisition of nuclear weapons by Iran during Obama’s term would do him a great deal of political damage. The damage that the resulting independent Israeli strike would cause Obama – soaring gasoline prices and American casualties in retaliatory operations – would be devastating.

    9. For practical reasons, in the absence of genuine sanctions, Israel will not be able to wait until the end of next winter, which means it would have to act around the congressional elections in November, thereby sealing Obama’s fate as president.

    10. Without international legitimacy, and with its friends mad at it, Israel would find it very difficult to act on its own.

    Weighing them up with each other begs a single solution to the crisis with the United States: quit building.

    Chairman Steele and the Fall Elections


    My advice to Steele, who is a friend and a former –and excellent– guest host of my program:

    Recruit two deputy chairs, one for the inside and one for the outside.

    Mr. Inside should come with green eye shades and a reputation for parsimony.

    Put him or her in charge of a top-to-bottom audit.

    Mr. Outside should be a high-profile GOP stalwart who can share the travel and fund-raising duties and help capitalize between now and November on the enormous energy in the grassroots.

    It need only be a six-month commitment, but a proven conservative spokesman like Rick Santorum or Liz Cheney down the hall and at your side would smooth this rough patch and end the news cycle.

    So too would some focus on the 2012 primaries and whether they will be open to Obama’s troops with nothing better to do than make mischief in the GOP’s selection process.

    (Good advice, Mr. Hewitt.)

    (not live, but neither is Hannity, there’s an hour delay, which is why I usually listen on satellite radio.)

    (six months there is no delay, so we’re in a constant state of cognitive dissonance here in the valley of the sun.)
