The Revolution Will Be Televised...from Canada
Imagine you're a lonely kid in Ottawa in February 1965, confused and bored. Just after local wonders Ian and Sylvia do a few subdued numbers, this young man (yes, man) is introduced, and you will forever see the world and your country in a new way.
Until about 10 a.m. today I'd never heard of Jackie Shane, and apparently this is the only available video performance in a decidedly short career. There's no Wikipedia page on him, but this entry from Jezebel Music gives us a little insight into his life.
I am now compelled to learn more about this revolutionary, visionary, sensual creature. Canada really is about more than Mounties and Joni Mitchell.
