I kind of like falling back on this tune:



Love the Strat sound and Chris and his band do an excellent job each time they play it live...even if no one is around! cool

I've picked up on this CD again recently after a long lay-off. Especially this highly favored track. Has a sort of late '60's-early '70's flavor to me......

Back when I was teaching, I ran the college radio station. One day, we got this album in from one of thr record companies that serviced our station.
The Bears?
Never heard of them.
But I had heard of Adrian Belew, so I thought I'd check it out.
When I heard the kick off on this tune, I was hooked. The brittle-brite razor sharp guitar tone was so different from anything else I was hearing, and that first line "Mama's little baby likes fear and torture" made me laugh out loud.
That was about 1990. It still grabs me .

This one came to mind in light of the "Forgotten Guitarists" thread. An early Prog group that hardly anyone remembers or references.

Not sure of the "Why?", just something I thought of recently, and really wanted to hear again. As to "Why & What?", IMHO, the Strawbs really show the link between British Prog Rock and British Folk Rock, and I still love this song, even after, what, 40 years now, give or take?

Here's another all-but-forgotten band, unless you're a fan of the Canterbury Scene, in which case, you'll enjoy this . . .

Agreed.
I esp like the chordal splash at 2:11 & the arpeggiations at various places' sometime both guitarists are playing diff arpeggiated lines simultaneously twothumbs .... & what a relaxed perf.

Kinda lugubrious but great snare sound & cymbal ring at 1:34. Interesting vox effect during final refrain.
Thanks.

Those may be the longest intro & outro sections of a song I've ever heard.
I confess I was getting sleepy til that funky kboard line poppped up at 3:29 & kept me in the game long enough to hear that neat gtr knot that opened the instrumental section at 4:52.

Not yet a fan of the Canterbury scene but maybe someday...
That one was bit more my style, esp the gtr /drum duet that kicked things off.
The drummer really caught my attention, though, w/what was played during abt 3:00~4:30. Fantastic, as was the bit c.7:00~7:40 or so.

Thanks!

This one's not really a song but an instrumental perf that's caught me for the fiery playing of Jimmy Herring & the 2nd guitarist, who I think is Tom Cuarna [ https://www.tomguarna.com ].

Perf opens w/ a 1879s style jazz-funk bs-dr invitation before hitting the tune's head [abt 0:45].
Herring plays a scalding solo [1:10 ~ 2:55] featuring some clever shifting motifs & well placed vib bar work.
He definitely puts the rock back into jazz rock. rawk

That's followed by a bs solo w/ some drm-triggered bits (that I haven't fully figured out yet) & a kb solo which JH comps behind [3:50 ~4:50].
Catch the funky stuff just aft the 4 min mark !


Abt 4:45 the bassist calls an audible to the apparently bored Lenny White & the hit the head again before the 2nd gtr's solo [4:30~6:40] which follows the same melodic arch as Herring's, though w/less overt rock flavor.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Njlb7EEsfMs


Anyone know the name of this thing ? idk

From 1999, Beck & Batten part yer hair !
freak w00t rawk w00t HeadPop

Points of interest:
The bent note (off-screen @ 0:42~ 0:47) that seems a quote from Allman's slide work on the orig "Layla" track ;
the slide-tapping, uh, thing happening @ 1:20~1:45 ;
the gtr close up that starts abt 2:15, showing some of JB's unorthodox techniques = picking, some of the manipulation of the vib bar (that looks accidental is deliberate), etc.

Thanks for those Jeff Beck vids, d. I like one of the comments: God plays guitar; he just uses Jeff Beck's hands.

Everyone knows I'm a HUGE McLaughlin freak. And recently while digging thru my pile of CDs, I ran across one by John that for some reason I haven't listened to for years. So I put it in my player and have been wearing it, the player AND my wife out with it for the last week

My favorite track from MAHAVISHNU('84)--dig the counterpointing twixt Bill Evan's sax and John's synth ax towards the end...

As I'm listening, v fluid use of synth, esp for that time.
I prefer when JM drops the gnat notes for more lyrical stuff (the line at 1:33~1:40 for example).
Similarly the opening of Evans's solo is my fave section, although the knot he & Cobham twine at 2:40~2:45 is a pleasantly surprising "bump down the stairs" ( I wonder if BC ever re-tracked his parts to better accentuate what happening idk ---maybe that's why they left him of the cover pics...breaking jazz rules grin ).

Both my CD and old vinyl( long gone) never HAD any "cover pics", so I couldn't tell ya. But BC has ALWAYS broken any jazz "rules"( a genre that's always claimed NOT to really HAVE any), that's what made him great. wink

Yeah, I saw that. I'm just saying the LP I had didn't have any pics on the cover. Maybe the one above was an import. Those always had different cover art than the U.S. releases for some reason.

New release:

Steve Hackett just released a new version of the GTR hit "When The Heart Rules the Mind". No Steve Howe; but another Steve (Rothery, from Marillion) handles some additional rhythm guitar work. Got to admit - Hackett's voice is quite strong here. Not as high as Max Bacon on the original, but certainly not bad; just a bit different.


And one that's been on my mind lately, mostly due to the lyrics and a personal situation. But a stress relieving chord basher; you need them every now and then. Rush in fine form.


Enjoy!

"Olsen Olsen" / I really like that synth sound [I presume, since it doesn't match the movements of the bow on gtr] that starts up at 0:56, a quite affecting sound, as is the vocal.
Hard to tell within the overall sound but I wonder whether the vox got any particular production treatment or if that's just the way it was sung.
Has a really drawn out, stretched quality.
Nice track.
Thanks for bringing it !

The Hackett tune makes a great wake-up number after Sigur Ros's dreamscape !
For a moment I thought he was melding an old Mott the Hoople tune in there [0:30~0:36, etc] but then he reels off something like that downward line at 1:05 & I'm made to sit up straight & listen carefully. The transition out of the gtr lead at 3:25~3:50 is cool too. Reminds me a bit of this [2:18]:


The Rush clip is good. I esp like how initially the vocal rhythm is riding the upbeats.
Lifeson's work is good but my fave bit is Peart's showbiz moment at 3:25----- or it was til they hit the Sly freak Stone riff at 5:21

Don't know abt the rest of you but I absolutely love digging into some of this stuff that I usually wouldn't hear.
twothumbs

YT rolled this 1 up for me when "Wish Them Well" ended...I like it even more.
Lifeson really soars at 4:36. cool

@ Picker, the Strat sound he's getting out of that toilet seat are as important as Mark Knopfler's on Sultans of Swing IMHO. That's not the one I saw him playing on stage, so he gets that sound out of other Strats as well...can't judge a book by it's cover... cool

One of my fave things lately is to chk the tune after the target track so I wondered if this selection...
... might actually be better....GAG YER COUSIN VINNIE W/ A SPOON freak don't even bother---past the 0:30 second spot you'll be forever changed in a most negative way.
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.

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.

& I learned it from the estimable Danzilla.
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.

Funny, but due to some discussion in an unrelated type forum, I've been listening to this old vinyl all week.....


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

Mmmmmm, could be....



It's close but I think the Marvelettes take this match....

Hunter Gets Captured By The Game
(Smokey Robinson)
Everyday brings change, and the world puts on a new face
Sudden things rearrange, and this whole world seems like a new place
Oh yeah, secretly I been tailing you
Like a fox that prays on a rabbit
Had to get you and so I knew
I had to learn your ways and habits
Oh, you were the catch that I was after
But I looked up and I was in your arms and I knew that I was captured
What's this whole world comin' to
Things just ain't the same
Any time the hunter gets captured by the game

I dug out some old Los Lonely Boys Cd's that I hadn't given any attention to in a while. Just some honest playing, right there. Came across this nugget of joy (As Zorak would say). Three brothers having some good, clean fun. Ok, good, slightly overdriven fun.




A 7:30- Straps? We don't need no stinkin' straps!

Hey, I kinda fergot them Lonely Bwais---thanks for the reminder, Danz !
That one is a bit up the SRV trail,,,,here's one that shows 'em in another light.





------------------
Speaking of diff lights, we all know PRN was a great player but di ya ever hear him go country ?
I dont mean that Purple Rain semi-country but some real, ped steel stylin' country gtr licks ?

Dig 0:45~3:25 !

IF ONLY HE'D KEPT IT UP THROUGH THE MAIN SOLO (although it showcases some cool stuff as well) ! idk
To quote Ms Crow [4:43~4:48], "The artist formerly known as A-a-AA-a-a aa, hey yeah-ayeah !"

Listening to that concurrently w/ typing this.
Kinda cool.
How'd they get Robbie Robertson to play piano ? grin facepalm

But I'll see yer Waterbwais w/this Whirled Party track, which pays sneaky tribute to Lips McGee & the Strolling Ruins's "Sympathy 4 the Debbil"



& raise ya this real world party track from one of our greatest but little know modern singers.
Dig the synth that wanted to be a gtr (at 2:05~2:23)

West's (he's still alive, right ?) a truly great player w/distinctive tone but let's give credit to Pappalardi's production skills fer making Mountain sound better than Cream ever did. twothumbs

In a happy accident, YT dialed this up for me immediately aft the orig track ended...
simultaneously more nuanced & bombasticalicious.
