RIP Riley

I can't imagine a world without music of all genres and artists like him have contributed to giving my life so much pleasure.

Amen to both.

Let's start off with this stunning version of an old Shangri-Las hit. I'm pretty sure I've seen the singer, Imelda May, somewhere and it could have been at Twinwoods a couple of years ago. Jeff Beck providing the drama on guitar.

Chill out with this beautiful slow smooch from Artie Shaw.

Some Prog Rock featuring one of my favourite performers Chris Farlowe in his brief membership of Rooster.

A bit of a rarity from the Kinks. Ray Davies wrote this song for local lad Dave Berry who had a minor hit with it. This version is taken from a Top of the Pops session and was released on an album of other stuff only recorded in BBC sessions.

Sixties Psychedelia....If you remember this you really weren't there.

A beautiful rendering of Tomaso Albinonis masterpiece.

One of the most copied and covered performers ever...just saying.





Another song from the Les Paul tribute. Originally recorded in 1952, Les Paul and Mary Ford had a big hit with this in 1953



An Australian band heavily influenced by Wilson Pickett and Otis Reading............if you close your eyes........



Original version...Ed Sheeran had a hit with his cover version from the TV series "Sons of Anarchy" but I rate this version better.



Original recording of the Jagger Richards song that was a B side on Satisfaction.



Going to see this guy next week...ATM he's right up there with the best blues guitarists around.

These fellas?
Punkified gritty urban poets?....not really my cup of tea...they're really copy cats though aren't they? it's all been done before. However, after a few beers and the promised pie & peas supper I should think they sound a lot better.Thumbsup

Went to see this guy last month and he was absolutely on fire. I was going to put up one of his songs, a standard blues song written by Willie Dixon called "Talk to me Baby" that he totally smashed, but I've searched high and low on Youtube and can't find one that does justice to the performance, so instead I found this copy of another of his set, a self penned blues song called "Shame Shame Shame' It was this line up on this video plus a trumpeter and a tenor saxophonist, Enjoy.




I've said before that sometimes it's the song rather than the performer that matters. People of a certain age will remember this song as a big hit for Cass Elliot of the Mammas & Pappas in 1968, but it goes way back to 1931 and there have been over 60 versions of it to date. Both of these performers have done it solo but here they are together and really compliment each other. It envelops you like a warm duvet.





I heard this on the radio earlier this week...Nina Simone is usually a Jazz singer but here she makes a good fist of a soul song.





Little Lady with a big voice...quite pleasing on the eye as well.




Another little lady, this time with a big guitar...and boy can she play it.



I'm always banging on about modern music and lamenting how IMO it's poor compared to what I grew up with. OK it's an age thing I suppose but I appreciate music of all genres and from all time if it's good. This is the vocal arrangement from the Beach Boys song "God only Knows" without the music and I believe it shows just how much work went into it at the time compared with the lazy songwriting from most bands today. Yes I know...I'm an old fart.

Most people will recognise this song from the 1980 release by Girlschool....but this is the original 1968 version by Gun. There have been several recordings of this song by several bands and all of them have been note for note copies of this one.

Another 1968 track with a Satanic vision...this time by the Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

From ELP's debut album...this is based on the "Alegro Barbaro" by the Hungarian composer Béla Bartók. Keith Emerson was into classical and alternate music and was one of the most innovative performers in the Prog Rock scene.

Saw this band a couple of weeks ago and they were excellent. They are essentially a blues rock band with the emphasis on blues, but here they do a rock tune that could come straight out of the seventies.

Artie Shaw band with a swing tune specially recorded for the 1939 film "Dancing Co-Ed" A young Buddy Rich on drums.

Long live Rock n Roll Thumbsup

I just watched that 'Slice o'lime' and enjoyed it. Even though the "demon" looked scarily like Joe Elliott. Erm
