    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
