Hi

I wanted to stop and say thank you for the time and effort that you put into this post.  There were some great performances in here.

I will take the time to listen to them all as I have the chance.  It's Only Make Believe still gives me a chill to hear..  he was amazing  and that is the best performance  of Cyndi's. 

Thank you for taking the time to post these.  They were a reminder of the country rock music I listened to before I moved off to the great rock bands later.  It is great to enjoy a whole variety of music.

Piano -

Huey ("Piano") Smith & the Clowns:  Don't You Just Know It, Rockin' Pneumonia, Second Line.

'Fess (Professor Longhair) :    Tipitina, Big Chief, etc.

Alan Toussaint: There's a Certain Girl ("What's her name? I caan't Tell ya"), Mother-In-Law, Fortuneteller, Workin' in the Coal Mine  

(and of course) Jerry Lee: Crazy Arms, You Win Again (and not so much Breathess, Whole lotta Shakin', etc.)

Guitar: Roy Buchanan (Will stop you from listening on, to others!)

    Roy's best IMO - Patsy Cline's "Sweet Dreams" 

And, to stop any comments here about others, Roy makes it perfectly clear (without actually saying it in words,) that Hendrix would be bouncing off the ceiling if, in some lucky moment in his life, he was playing half as well...

 

SIngers:

  Tracy Nelson (An Irma Thomas protege,  her best - "Love Has No Pride,"  -NOT avlbl, on YouTube - makes Linda Ronstadt's singing sound thoughtless and emotionless.)  But try: "Can You, Fool"   and the ONE song she wrote - "Down So Low"   WifeII and I used to do this one; Tracy/Willie covering Conway/Loretta's "After the Fire"

and no, like most of us, Tracy WASN'T always overweight - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5ycASOGbW4&feature=related

Cyndi Lauper isn't the singer you thought she was - she's much better. I used to see Blue Angel when I was a musician in NYC (where I also saw Roy Buchanan.) This Blue Angel demo was circulating among studio people at the time, and is badly edited - but I guarantee you, she did it exactly this well in person. 

Everlies: Not over with. McCartney's tribute song is their best ever - just  when you wondered if anyone would ever harmonize that perfectly again:

Speaking of Conway, he wasn't a bad singer either. His hit, "Only Make Believe" was almost Roy Orbison-like in its range and quality: And IMO every bit as good as Elvis. Listen to this version:  the maturity of nuance, embellishment and musicianship as well as vocal power, easily rivals today's black singers.

of course, Roy Orbison could write AND sing them:  (try it -singing- I did. Start VERY low...) 

Others:

Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers - If you grew up in MA: "Road Runner" (Radio On. The wacky and brilliant "Loudon Wainwright of Massachusetts"...) 

Roky Erickson : Many - "Two Headed Dog," "I Think Up Demons (for you),"  "Creature with the Atom Brain,"  "Stand for the Fire Demon," "I Walked with a Zombie,"  "Don't Shake Me, Lucifer"....

Almost Anything from The Neville Brothers, but especially the "Wild Tchoupitoulas" album... and ONLY the vinyl, not the very disappointing  CD, which leaves out a lot, and has bad versions of the rest.

Thanks Lenny!   That was a big surprise.. I have alerts at the concert venues and ticketmaster  but State Theater is in Playhouse Square and I did not think about that as a venue.

I will be looking for tickets!

His new album is "So Beautiful or So What," which features a religious theme and even a song inspired by a Christmas sermon by Rev. J. M. Gates, an Atlanta preacher."   I have not listened to it yet ..but I will have to check it out.

 There's  a great Paul Simon album that just came out. The best thing he's done since Graceland. Some funny stuff about being at heaven's gate and having to take a number and fill out a form to get in. Kind of like the DMV!

Hi Lenny,

Nice to see you back here.  Hope you'll stick around.  You are so right about DBT.  Got to see them in concert last year thanks to your recommendation and was not disappointed.

Hi Cindy,

Sounds like you found some good ones too.  I'm not much into country these days.  Was a big fan a few years back.  Love Brooks & Dunn and some of the older artists like Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, George & Tammy, etc.

"Bang On The Drum All Day" was always the rock anthem on my favorite radio station every Friday.  TGIF!

I've been going to the library alot lately and increasing my CD collection.  Hard to believe that with all I have there is still more out there.  Here's what I picked up this week:

1. The List by Rosanne Cash (some of the songs from the list of 100 songs that Johnny felt she should know).

2.  Sandinista! by The Clash

3. Move Along by All American Rejects

4. Gene Vincent's Greatest Hits

5. Pressure Chief - Cake

6.  Chad & Jeremy's Greatest Hits

7. Bowie at the Beeb - David Bowie -(3 CD's at the BBC Radio Theatre in London)

As you can see it's quite a variety.

J.

After reading Today In Rock N Roll History posted by Diane which I look forward to I was inspired to give a listen to these guys. It's been awhile, and they're always good for a smile or sometimes a belly laugh.
