What's the point
if you hate, die and kill for love.
What's the point with a love that
makes you hate and kill for.

You've got a heart on fire,
it's bursting with desires.

You've got a heart filled with passion.
Will you let it burn for hate or compassion.

A discerning ear can appreciate the subtle yet susbstantive way in which Mr. González's piece derives from The Fugs' 1966 masterwork, Kill for Peace

Noticed the last person said this was boring, so I waited.  Are you kidding?  What a great acoustic blues!
seriously boring

Um, kiss my ass, Poacher.  Romeotuma loves what he loves, and he doesn't bother to post on anything he doesn't love.  What's wrong with that? He's NOT a troll. If he were, you'd see posts like Excelsior's.

Do your homework and don't attack people who just love music.

Thank you.  I will avoid you in the future, because there are songs I'd love to multi-post on, but now I know I can't, because people like you would label me a troll.  Well, crap. RP sucks because of people like you. {#Ass}

I was away from RP awhile and am really sad to hear that some of my old fav RPosters are no longer with us - RIP.

And I completely agree with her comments, and really love the mooning emoticon!  This track is good too...and a very interesting read through the comments on this one....


{#Hearteyes}
Passion is not the only strong emotion.
I have come to love his music (and Junip) but it does distract the hell out of me that he intentional includes the background distortion in all his songs. What is up with that?!

I loved the song Jose sang in the Red Dead Redemption soundtrack ("Far Away"), and always like hearing something of his on RP.

If you're not familiar with Far Away, he does a great live version of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q79k-uwBe8U

This song is soooo good it puts a spring in my step this winter evening...


This song is soooo good it puts a spring in my step this summer day...

Wow.  Next time I'll take notice when (if?) they come up again in the rotation.  I am not sure I'll be able to stand them though, even though my mantra is that the personal lives of artists is not relevant.  An artist murderer is something I have never confronted before.

Saw José when he was in Geneva a few months ago, and he gave a great show. Excited to hear him come up on RP.

Almost, but not quite. As much as I appreciate Hot Tuna Love, I have seen the phrase "putrid butt mud" with his signature attached. Proof that he's one of us, says me.



Love this song...  we be dancing...

Thank you so much, you marvelous woman...  don't let someone who calls himself a "poacher" bother you with his cheap pot shots...

A troll makes comments to try to stir things up with people...  I just comment on the songs...  so the troll thing is just Freudian projection on your part...  you are the one trying to stir things up with somebody...

A "poacher" is by definition "one who hunts or fishes illegally on the property of another"... and that is not some derogatory name someone else calls you— that is your name for yourself... you call yourself a thief...  

this song is soooo good...

Lovely music... I bought this album, and frankly, his voice becomes incredibly monotonous over the duration of the entire album. Best played shuffled with lots of other stuff.

He's going to take Santana's crown  soon as everything he does sounds the same.

This has been a 2 for me for quite a while. I just don't like it. But today as I was reaching for the "play" button, I saw this was on and stopped myself.

That makes it a 1.

Actually, the guitar is very reminiscent of the sound of the African sanza I think.

a sarah palin visit just wrapped out right outside my window........this song is just such an eloquent expression of so many of the concerns I have about the kind of views she seems to represent....god I hope McCain hangs in there if he happens to win.....she scares me
Oh man, rhyming fire with desire.  Look out folks, we've got a creative one on our hands here!

that's cuz Jose sang for Zero 7 on their album 'The Garden'.  Him and Sia were the 2 big guest vocalists for that one.
