Sometimes, it's the song itself that's the"Star"...when Hoagy Carmichael wrote this song in 1927, he couldn't have envisaged it would become one of the most recorded songs in history with over 1500 artists, and still counting, having seen it's merit. This version by Artie Shaw is regarded by many as the definitive one from the big band swing era.

Crap performance and result today...need to chill out with a bit of cool jazz and a drink. It doesn't get much cooler than this...a craftsman at his trade playing with brilliant dissonance.

Remeber reading an interview with the late Captain Beefheart where he told of an occasion that he saw Thelonious Monk perform. Apparently Monk walked on stage, sat down, played one note, then walked off again. Beefheart said "And you know what? He played the right note! The right note!"

He may well have been the only person in the audience who thought that. He was a bit of a wild mind, was the Captain. 

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

What a god the Captain was! This is one of his more accessible songs, from the "Clear Spot" album.

A 1978 hit for Lindisfarne, a folk/rock band from Newcastle who had re-formed after splitting up in 1976.

Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream,
It is not dying, it is not dying

Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.

Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being

Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing

The Flying Burrito Brothers were not very well known in their own time but have since become regarded as one of the founders of the country rock genre. Originally founded by two ex members of the Byrds, the direct lineage goes all the way to the Eagles who took the genre to the very top.

I see the Dylan gestapo have been combing Youtube again...eradicating anything Bob they can find. However, Percy Verance can always find a way round them.

Led Zeppelin with a slow blues song from their 3rd album. This is IMO the pinnacle of Brit blues...a very different genre to it's American cousin from which it obviously descended.

Paul Jones making a very good fist of this Bob Dylan classic from their "One in the Middle" EP 1965. Jones later quit the Manfreds at the height of his fame to form his own band exclusively playing his beloved blues music.

Paul Jones of Manfred Mann still has the most pure and perfect voice of any pop star I've ever heard.

And in the last fifteen years I've seen him twice in the little hall at the back of the Sheffield City Hall, both time as a major part of The Blues Band, immaculately covering so many virtually unknown classic blues artists. Class. And he still has that cut-glass RADA accent that served him so well through his film acting career.

He also plays the blues harp (harmonica) as well as anyone i've ever heard, (which is a lot.)

As shown here:





Dave Kelly on guitar: as a very young man he backed and was scared silly by the Howlin' Wolf. Tom McGuiness( on that little thing) was also in Manfred Mann.

As guitar playing goes, this is just a little bit special. From memory, Mick Taylor was just 18 years old when the mighty John Mayall chose him from a newspaper advert to replace Peter Green, who'd just left to form his own band, called Fleetwood Mac. (Green had in turn replaced Eric Clapton, who'd left Mayall to form Cream.)

When the original leader of the Stones was sacked for drug abuse, (Brian Jones), the still very young Taylor was recruited as his replacement. What a player!

The first song that made me EVER have to think about NOT choosing a Beatles single for my monthly single, from my Dad, aged ten. (Me, not him.) Yep, the beatles still won. (I feel fine?)

How young was Paul Jones in 1964? He's still superb today in the Blues Band and the Manfreds, not to mention presenting his blues programme on Radio 2.

I agree with you about the best version of "Devil"....it is truly a one off. You also stole my thunder with Do Wah Diddy as I planned to put that on the thread in the fairly near future...as one of the best pop songs ever made. So instead I'll put this one up in the "best pop song category" from a lad from a musical background from his mum who was a minor British star in the fifties

Donovan emerged in the mid sixties from the British folk scene which was quite popular at the time. Because he was a singer song writer from that scene, the press tried to put him up as "Britain's answer to Dylan." He was no such thing of course but became a bit of a hippie icon with songs like "Catch the Wind" and "Colours." This one came out around 1968 and was his nod towards the psychedelic craze that dominated the charts at that time.
