There's still plenty of it around, and new music of a similar quality  ... it's just very rarely on the radio.

Some parodies surpass parody.

The doubled guitar sound is good, the counter-melody (the second theme) great.

I don't like much "country" music, but I love this song, and its singing. Perfection would be a cutting back of the refrain a bit ...!

Its an online music streaming program that you can modify to any number of music genre's that suit your personal taste.
Great, especially if you have some decent speakers or a wi-fi system hooked up to your PC.

They've nailed it, right down to the 'aren't I clever' emphasis on that 'hanging' minor/diminished chord, the faux-break in 'John's' voice, and the carefully constructed second theme for 'Paul'. Brilliant.

An interesting article on Crosby, Stills, Young, and a hanger-on cut and pasted from Rolling Stone:

>>>

By Andy Greene
August 22, 2013 2:20 PM ET

No one is more surprised to be alive at 72 than David Crosby, who has survived diabetes, hepatitis C, a liver transplant and severe addictions to drugs and alcohol. "If there’s a way to go wrong possible, I did," he says. "I could have ea-si-ly died at so many points in my past. It happened to my friends – Jimi, Janis, Cass. Sometimes I wonder, 'Why me?' I made all the same mistakes everyone else made, and yet all these people that I loved and had immense talent are gone. I tried writing down a list of all them recently, but it was so discouraging that I had to stop."

Look Back at David Crosby's Rolling Stone Interview From 1970

Over the past few months, Croz has focused on a more uplifting project: his first solo album since 1993's Thousand Roads. "Nobody really makes a true solo album," he says. "This one involves my son James quite a bit. He co-produced it, sang on it, arranged and wrote the songs with me. My friend Marcus Eaton also plays guitar and sings a lot of harmonies on it. It's different than anything I've ever done. I've always wanted to hear the band instrumentals in the same kind of place where I wanted the vocals. I wanted to make something experimental and out there, and this time I got it. I think I'm going to call it Dangerous Night."

When not recording, Crosby spent much of his time this year on the road with Crosby, Stills and Nash. The group has been working for years on a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young live album drawn from eight shows on their famously debauched 1974 reunion tour. In April, Graham Nash told Rolling Stone it was coming out on August 27th, but soon after that it got delayed yet again.

"We had a different opinion of what standards the audio comes to," explains Crosby. "Neil, of course, was demanding that 96 wasn't good enough and we had to go up to 192. And so we did. I mean, if you're making a record with four people you have to take them all into account. Neil has been on this crusade every since Apple did the MP3 for iTunes. He wanted to have Steve Jobs shot. He hates MP3. You can't even say the word 'MP3' in front of him. Steam will come out of his ears. He's a bit of a nut about it, but I get where he's coming from."

There's no release date for the album yet, but Crosby hopes it'll finally hit shelves sometime later this year or (more likely) in 2014. "If you're listening to those tapes you would think that we were really, for a moment, the best band in the world," he says. The stadium tour was dubbed the "doom" tour by the band, and tales of their drug use on the road have become legendary. Despite that, Crosby swears the tapes reveal they still put on an amazing show. "The only reason the tour wasn't great is because we were ripped off," he says. "The tour made, like, 12 million dollars and we each got less than a half of a million."

The album isn't titled yet, but Crosby is pushing hard for them to call it What Could Possibly Go Wrong?. "How could anyone resist calling it that?" he says. "It's ****** funny. You can't say it without getting a smile on your face. If you know us, know the history, know the whole deal, it's impossible to not crack up at that title."

Still, he has to get the other members of the group to agree. "I can think of at least one person where that won't be a problem," he says. "And I can think of a couple of people where that might be a problem." One presumes he means Nash will go for it, and Stills and Young won't, but he refuses to clarify the point. "But I think it's hysterically funny. It shows we have a sense of humor about ourselves. . .It's pretty much done right now, but I figured out a long time ago I'm not the one in charge."

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young haven't toured since their politically charged Freedom of Speech tour in 2006. Might they hit the road sometime in the near future? "God, I sure wish we were," says Crosby. "I love working with Neil. He really does push the envelope. He makes fantastic music. I feel really good working with him. We're an interesting bunch because we have such a wide palette of colors. All four of us are really good writers and, more importantly, completely different from each other. It gives you a palette to work with that's incredible. Between us we got 900 songs. . .But as far as another tour, I don't know. You know who it's up to."

A future CSNY tour doesn't seem completely out of the question, especially now that Crazy Horse guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro's hand injury prematurely ended Neil Young's world tour. As of right now, he has nothing on his calendar besides Farm Aid and the Bridge School Benefit.

"I just talked to Neil yesterday," says Crosby. "He feels real bad for Poncho ... I have so much respect for Neil because he always follows his muse. It's often counter to what I want, because, because I want to work with him. But I also want him to follow his muse. I want him playing music that excites him right that minute. And if that includes me, that's wonderful. If it doesn't, that's wonderful too. He's still making great music and still tries to push the envelope. Sometimes he succeeds, (sometimes) he makes Trans."

I was reminded of this long lost film recently. I remember going to the local arthouse theatre some 35 years ago & seeing it. Its called "All this & World War 11". A curious blend of documentary & movie clips all merged to the backing of a Beatles soundtrack. Sounds strange but somehow it works.
What do you think?

It's been a while since I posted anything here.

Here's an utterly amazing bit of technique ... I first heard of this bloke nearly 30 years ago, when he released 'Magic Touch' (which I still have, on vinyl). I'd never seen this,though ... and actually wasted a few seconds looking at the clip, for the piano player ...

tap tap a tap. The only problem is Stanley turned it into a bit of a shticky gimmick. He couldn't leave his trademark alone.

Now, a shoutout for Hoyt Axton. Singer, songwriter, wordsmith, actor, rebel in a stetson hat. And genial personality. With the great voice.

True, his material was sometimes weak. But when he was on song, he was a force of nature made better.

If you too hate most country music, please give this an unprejudiced listen. Nice words too. "Two shadows ran for the bar backdoor / And one stayed on the ground."

Instrumental. Technically, it's played as a reel rather than a hornpipe, but who's counting?

Lardy - cop David Grier on the guitar. But they're all virtuosos with ease.

One of my favorite groups. Andy Irvine did a solo tour here a few years ago & i had a chance to meet him. Great bloke & as with all folkies, he loves a pint.

Not the clip i wanted to show but the @rseholes at utube have disabled it. Here's another one.

Yep, all I miss with Andy is a slightly stronger voice! Has all the musicianship and range you'd want.

I first came across Stanley in that movie from the late 80s with Bruce Willis and Kim Bassinger.  Was it called "Nadine"?   He also did a superb version of Stairway to Heaven around the same time.

AC/DC's Malcolm Young has dementia

"It may be that dementia is claiming another giant, this time a musical one.

Sources connected to the Young family have said AC/DC co-founder, guitarist and songwriter, Malcolm Young, whose retirement from the band was announced on Wednesday, has been moved into fulltime care in a nursing home facility in Sydney's eastern suburbs specialising in dementia.
...
According to the Young family connection: "If you were in the room with [Malcolm Young] and walked out then came back in one minute later he wouldn't remember who you are. He has a complete loss of short term memory. His wife Linda has put him in full-time care."


---------------------------------------------------------------

Just 61. A tragedy that he can't remember the 3 basic AC/DC's chords any longer. No
