I'd point out, as my wont, that we shant (yes, I typed that w/out any apostrophe or trophy of any sort !) that we also cant (another no apostrophic event) judge a cover by the book within....just, y'know, sayin'...carry on, eh?

One of my fave things lately is to chk the tune after the target track so I wondered if this selection...

IN NO WAY, HOWEVER does that reflect on Picker's choice of the best B Cummings tune as he assigned above, in fact it intensifies his commendation !

I disagree...cant without the apostrophe has a different meaning. Can't with the apostrophe is the contraction for can not...(which is the way I meant it).

Are you thinking of the word "kant" ?
Ah, now my friends at M-W.com are confirming yer suggestion...


In a strange hangoverish matter, however, how is it that I never noticed the oddnicity of Isaak's nose as evidenced in this vid...?

(look at the man behind the curtain, not at me grin )

BTW & FWIW, if just where y' wonder where I stand, it would take abt 75K (who's that "Parrotville" schmuck ?) to equal 1 C.I.

snax

Just like the style it's played in and the subject matter. We were all "stoners" when it came out and it kinda hit home. wink

Just liking the sound of it. Sometimes(most, I'd say) it's really only all that simple.

I remember that Jonathan Edwards song well-in those days I was also listening to a lot of David Bromberg, Arlo Guthrie, The G-Dead of course. I never get tired of acoustic.

Hard to figure out some people. On one hand, the man gripes because I blah blah blah too much, and then pisses and moans if I don't blah blah blah ENOUGH! idk

Yeah, Skip, 'bout that time I was where you were as far as acoustic goes. Was also listenin' to a lot of Cat Stevens then, Danny O'Keefe, Croce and the like. While simultaneously getting into fusion and more jazz. And speaking of Danny....



Nice mix of acoustic smoothness and sparse but effective semi-electric assistance. Would work as well if just him and acoustic guitar. I used to pass my time with the tune, just me and my ol' Epi.

Ya, good call on the timeline and music selection.
Here is a recent earworm-this arrangement has some electric
guitars at the end but see if it jogs some neurons:

I think I like the original better, but then, he has Carly Simon doing backups, and Jeff Skunk Baxter playing electric guitar and pedal steel...

Hearing the last half minute or so of THIS being used in a TV commercial for The Dollar Shave Club caused me to dig up my old vinyl and play that scratchy old 49 year old LP relentlessly.

Group was formed a few years more ago in Alpena, MI. We loved 'em here, and though I'm just posting the one song that the TV ad got it's "sample" from, the whole LP is a rich source of DICK WAGNER roots shredding. smile

In light of this week's horrific events, and a further disappointment that I'm missing Marillion's US tour dates this week, I give you two from them that address the need for peace and love. One newer; one older:

Living in Fear

... it's a challenge to change your heart


A Few Words for the Dead

...or you could love



I hope this doesn't get deleted for being too political.

Josh White had long been a favorite "old time" bluesman, I was surprised and delighted that his son, JOSH WHITE JR. would often appear on a local children's TV show called "Hot Fudge"(my kids loved that show) with local folksinger RON CODEN, and sounded pretty good that I went to the local record store and found his album "Sing A Rainbow". I long ago lost track of it and recently when talking to one of my daughters found out SHE had it all along! She promised to "burn" a CD of it for me. Meanwhile, here's a cut from it:

I listen to the radio a lot, and happened to hear Patti Smith do a great version of George Harrison's "Within You Without You" from Sgt. Pepper, leading me to also check out other versions - Jimmy Herring does a really good guitar instrumental version - he's a very hot fusion guy.
I may buy Patti Smith's "12" which includes that tune.
Forgive me for not including the You Tube clip - I don't know how to do that, though one of you was kind enough to try and explain it, LOL. But those interested can easily hear either version on You Tube.

Thanks, Larry.
I once wrote a poem: Let me tell you how I get my kicks
I'm an old dog who still learns new tricks
And then to keep it on the up and up
I then turn around and teach the young pups!

So now I get to PROVE it.....

What a lovely version of George's song. Great to hear chord changes added to the drone. I've been puzzling over how to spend an iTunes gift card I received for Christmas, & I now know this will now be part of the purchase. Thanks, Eric!

Give it Everything You Got - Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart

Say what you want about Joe, but he and Beth work sell together. He rocks out the wah pedal here. Great horn section, too; they even give some love to the bass player with a little fuzzed-out solo from Michael Rhodes. And Beth - well, she's doing what the song title says.

BTW, the copy/paste action seems easier to me if you use [ctrl + c] to copy highlighted material & [ctrl + v] to insert...but airbody got they own moves.

Mike Bloomfield does some nice help on guitar in this one. wink
