We got about 30 minutes of viewing, enough to get a sore neck.
Mind if I play catch-up? This might be my favorite C&W entry, at least of the ones I can remember off hand.
(To be continued; the forum limits media inclusions to five.)
And now, As Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story.
Here are a couple from my time between marriages (1980-1981).
Of course we definitely need a movie theme. This one brings a tear to my eye.
(Hey, at least it's Clint.)
... and a TV theme. This one also brings a tear to my eye, but may not to the eye of those unfamiliar with the British series.
Speaking of British, how about something a little more upbeat to finish off the set? Back when I could make noise recognizable as a tune on the piano I could actually play this one.
These are my favorites even though neither are being performed by the original artists.
I just repaired my old turntable on the Eclipse trip. So I get home and I dig out a couple boxes of albums I had bought real cheep at a garage sale. lots of cool stuff in there and there are a couple albums by this group who iIhad not heard before. So last song on side 2 is this one. It struck me it needs publishing.
You guys have come up with some good ones. Hope to come back with some of my favorites, but no time to look right now.
I enjoy watching celtic dancing.... what I call the celtic two step neat tunes
Cool picks Set, country, folk,bluegrass rockabilly man I love it all glad you made it back safe from your trip sounds like you had a good one
Freebird (Live 2003) -- Lynyrd Skynyrd. Okay, so lead vocals were performed by younger brother Johnny Van Zant and the reconfigured group is backed by a orchestra. Still a great version of the band's signature song.
Something (Live in Japan, 2001) -- George Harrison with Eric Clapton. With all due respect to version by The Beatles released on Abbey Road, this one is the best IMO.
My Oh My -- Slade. "She'll be coming around the mountain when she comes..." -- think about that when you listen to this song.
Couldn't Get It Right -- Climax Blues Band. No, CBB was not a "one-hit wonder", as I Love You also charted in the US (#12 in 1981) despite not being promoted/backed by several members of the band. Shame, really, but despite the lack of support, that song has become a staple at weddings. Even Tesla did a cover.
Breakfast in America is one of those albums that belongs in every rock music collection.
I had never heard of this group. The songs you linked are decent. Probably didn't help matters they were from Champaign (IL) at a time when the rock music scene in the US was on the west coast. Besides, only 1 band from that town could make it big and yacraps already linked a video.
Really good cover by Ann & Nancy Wilson (okay, Heart), along with Jason Bonham on drums (nice touch there). That's a very tough song to cover well.
Anything by Trower
I haven't been to a lot of live concerts but Robin Trower is one that was good. Most recent was REO Speedwagon in Laughlin last year. It was ok for live music. Oh yeah I went to a Rick James concert. That should send some of you searching for that name
You're correct. This could go on forever.
Don't forget Jeff Beck, Jimi, Santana
I am currently buzzing through about six of their albums that were in the box. A very decent group of musicians. They have a religious slant to their music and one brother went on to make some 20+ Christian albums and founded a church. Name is John Talbot. The two brothers originate out of Indiana. i just couldnt believe those two songs fell out like they did as it is timely right now for this country.
Whoever collected these two boxes of albums i bought have some country flavors plus Sachmo,Temptations, Diana Ross, Grass Roots, Three copies of Jesus Christ Super Star (I now have 4 maybe 5 copies), Hair the musical, And i have to get to the Rick Springfield collection. Must be a dozen albums. Gots the Gatlin Brothers Alabama and a bunch of Kenny Rogers. I Just stuck on a LP by Dave valentine who ever he is. Called Jungle Garden. Sounds like spacy Andes Mountain Music. Where's my Bong??
A quiet evening listening to music on YouTube:
Pictures Of Matchstick Men -- Status Quo. When I think of the Psychedelic 60s, this song, Incense and Peppermints, and San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair) come to mind. Camper Von Beethoven does a pretty good cover.
Spirit In The Sky -- Norman Greenbaum. One of the best ever (IMO) songs by a one-hit wonder.
Ride Captain Ride -- The Blues Image. Another of the best ever (IMO) songs by a one-hit wonder.
Long As I can See The Light -- Creedence Clearwater Revival. Probably my favorite CCR song.
Yea I do that a lot too which is part of what motivated me to get the TT going again. You tube can sound like crap sometimes.
Go find Dave Valentine... Oasis
