There is another thread on here about bands you are just discovering. Rolling Stones anybody? Yes...Yes...I know, they've been around almost 50 years..everybody has grown up with them...but...if your younger, have you heard very early Stones. This is a track from their first album which IMO is a contender for best debut album ever.

Another top class Prog Rock band from the late 60's early 70's. Probably not as well known as some of the others, but their Jazz/Blues/Rock fusion....especially after the addition of Chris Farlowe as singer gave us some real "thinking man's music" Can't help but be a little bit smug about the plethora of quality bands and the variety of music available back then compared to the dearth of decent bands available today. Smug

In 1965 when I was no' but a lad....I had a huge crush on the beautiful Marianne Faithful. I remember her doing this song on a pop programme, sat on a stool in a micro dress showing a tiny triangle of white panties. Evil I even went out with a look alike for about two years....but....I could never forgive her for shagging Mick Jagger when I was available.Grr Several years later, I actually met her in a social setting and boy was I disappointed. She was a druggie and was out of her head and actually stunk like a pig.She had aged 10 years more than she should have doneSigh.....such is life Laugh

I first heard this song in the superb German war film "Das Boot" A whimsical little love song so evocative of the wartime period when it was very popular in both France and Germany. I've always liked it and being as I'm off to France tomorrow for a break from the trials and tribulations of watching Wednesday, I thought I'd share it.

A bientot!

The first time I heard this song, I thought it was a Beatles tribute band....but The Merry Go Round were a band in their own right and had a minor hit with this song on the west coast of America about 1967. I like it.

Funny, that movies bring us to certain songs sometimes. I can´t remember the film anymore, but there was an elevator scene with this breathtaking duet : Flower duet by Lakmé ......

oh, and re Marvin Gaye and the mrs. story...maybe she mistook the song "get it on2 with the grapevine songBlush

I can only assume the guy from Sony who's job it is to eradicate all Bob Dylan's music from YouTube is on holiday because there are loads of his songs on at the moment Happy This one was the follow up to his monster hit "Like A Rolling Stone" and is a scathing diatribe against some unknown person who obviously had upset him. I was going to put the afore mentioned song up but the only one available is poor quality sound, so I'll wait until someone puts a good one. Anyway, IMO opinion Dylan is in the top three most important figures in rock 'n roll history after Elvis and the Beatles....a genuine heavyweight who's prolific songwriting output has been recorded by thousands of other artists.

Have a listen before he gets back from his jollies.

A few weeks ago, I was taken to a flea pit down town called "The Plug" to see a live band. I'd rather have a vasectomy without anesthetic than go there again. The acoustics and the amplification were in open hostilities and there was a supporting band on who were......sorry lads......the worst, crappiest excuse for an act that I have ever heard. I was served some slop that passed for beer by a rather dim young man with jeans that clung just above his knees, who didn't understand the concept that a pint should be a pint....and not what was left in the (plastic) glass after he had spilled some on the counter. What appeared to be urine..(female?) was running across the "dance floor" and what bit of carpet was in the place clung to your shoes tenaciously if you dared walk on it.

Now I may be showing my age hereHm but if that is what passes for a live music experience, then I'm afraid it will die in this town. Bring back the Boardwalk!

Anyway, this is how a live band should sound.

Cat Stevens is one of the best singer/songwriters this country has produced and he was a major worldwide star from the late 60's. He has recorded until recently under the name of Yusuf Islam....a name he adopted in the mid seventies after converting to Islam. As far as I am aware, he has recently retired from the music industry to pursue a philanthropic and teaching career in the muslim community.

Tea for the Tillerman is an album by singer-songwriter Cat Stevens. This album, Stevens' second during 1970, includes many of Stevens' best-known songs including "Where Do the Children Play?", "Hard Headed Woman", "Wild World", "Sad Lisa", "Into White" and "Father and Son". Four of the tracks ("Where Do the Children Play?", "On the Road to Find Out", "Tea for the Tillerman" and "Miles from Nowhere") were featured in the Hal Ashby and Colin Higgins' black comedy film entitled Harold and Maude, in 1971. The track "But I Might Die Tonight" was featured in a film the year before, in 1970: Deep End, directed by Jerzy Skolimowski. Stevens, a former art student, created the artwork featured on the record's cover.
With "Wild World" as an advance single, this was the album that brought Stevens world-wide fame.[citation needed] The album itself charted into the top 10 in the United States, where he had previously had few listeners.[citation needed]
On 18 November 2003, Rolling Stone Magazine included this album in its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list at number 206.[4] In 2006, the album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die[5]. In 2007, the album was included in the list of "The Definitive 200 Albums of All Time", released by The National Association of Recording Merchandisers and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame[citation needed].
In November 2008, a 'Deluxe Edition' was released featuring a second disc of demos and live recordings.

Here we go...a good quality original version of "Like a Rolling Stone" It's off the Highway '61 Revisited LP and was a monster hit and has been voted as one of the most influential rock songs off all time. I used to know the lyrics word perfectBlush but I don't know who the song is about. The common belief is it's about a lady who was rich and rather up her own arse and had now fallen on hard times.

Another beautiful Puccini aria from "Madame Butterfly" Sung by the late Maria Callas. Some say she had a flawed voice whilst others say she had the most expressive voice of any soprano ever. I'm not qualified to have an opinion but she sounds fantastic to me.

My wife's favourite aria. Took her to see Madame Butterfly at the Arena a few years ago - she was roaring her eyes out when it was sung and afterwards remained dabbing the tears away right to the tragic end. And all the way home...its amazing how powerful opera can be. 

I ask you will Galway bate Mayo? Not if they have Willie Joe...they haven't a hope of beating Mayo!
