Music Row - This is the place to post music clips and films, and to talk about music, rather than just guitars. Any interesting footage or recordings found on Youtube, or anywhere else on the Internet, please post them in this section. No commercial advertising.
I dont download music at all. I prefer to buy it on CD so I have the sleeve notes/etc to hand. I do take advantage of some online sites low prices though.
What has been on my playlist today.
Well starting this morning
Ry Cooders "I Flathead"- a grower of an album IMO Our very own Michaels "Lucky Charms" Pixies "Trompe le Monde" ;-Felt like some noise which inspired me to put on Gang of Four "Entertainment" ;- then Richard Hell and the Voidoids "Blank Generation :- the late Robert Quine thrashing a Telecaster to within an inch of its life Making tea I put on Mark Knopflers latest "Get Lucky" then his album that he made with Chet Atkins Eating roast chicken was accompanied by Talking Heads "More songs about buildings and food"

Last couple of days mainly driving.
Colvin Quarmby - Beth's Electric Birthday Dan Hicks & THL - Selected Shorts & Striking it Rich Clive Gregson & Christine Collister - Home and Away Darko Rundek & Cargo Orkestar - Ruke Mike Seeger - Early Southern Guitar Sounds Dick Gaughan - Luck for Some & Handful of Earth Graham Coxon - Love Travels At Illegal Speeds Kevin Ayers - The Best Of Kevin Ayers
I'm not listening to blues today as I'm off to Pocklington But as I type I couldn't resist
Liked the Pines. Today I have listened to Jeff Healey - The Very Best Of, very good value at £4 from HMV, Lonnie Johnson (Stefan Grossmans Early masters of American Blues Guitar). Blair Douglas both "Summer In Skye" and "Beneath The Beret", Hamish Moore "Stepping on The Bridge" and the Boss "The Wild, The Innocent & The East Street Shuffle". Now about to listen to the wife commenting on my intake of Steve Skinners most wonderful new beer "Betty Stoggs Big Sister", a peach at 5.2% abv and recommended by my hepatology nurse.
Been listening to Alving Youngblood Hart's 'Down In The Alley' lately. Wonderful player, amazing right hand. I've been trying to get a few tunes down, one being his interesting cover of Devil Got My Woman. Next, I'm going to try 'If Blues Was Money' from 'Big Mama's Door'.
Blue Country Heart Jorma Kaukonen (and friends) - a lovely, lovely album (thanks to Gerry C for pointing us toward it a while back - and, at last, my ears finally get the fuss about Jerry Douglas, his work on this album both makes me grin like an idjit and blows me away, don;t think Julie and the kids are going to take much more of me going, 'Did you hear that, did ya? Brilliant innit!' etc),
Also a provocatively titled Not the Same Old Blues Cr*p II (a Fat Possum compliation). I pretty much knew I'd like the Burnside and the Jnr Kimbrough tracks when I got this but hadn't heard any Paul "Wine" Jones, Asie Payton or Scott Dunbar before, so glad I have now. Here's a couple of tracks I can't get enough of at the moment (Jones rendering of 'Going Back Home' would be here too, but it doesn't seem to be on youtube).
The latter was already going round in my head when I awoke this morning, made me go put the cd back on right then...

Hi I too have a few cd's from the fortnightly set of blues cds ( Oxfam and cash generator stores had quite a few ( Sorry Michael not the Louisana Red one ) I spend nearly 2 hours per day driving to and from work so get plenty of time to listen to some cd's Tampa Red - blues compilation from the above series Elmore James from the same Mississippi Fred McDowell - Various Eddie Martin - Play the blues with feeling - I picked it up at Pocklington and would heartily recommend it. He plays some really tasteful BB Kingish stuff as well as his usual slide/harmonica tunes ( Michael - I'm sure I heard a couple of snippets of the one chord mississippi groove in there too!) Jeff Beck - Nadia- Fantastic. Which prompted me to find Nitin Sawneys version on youtube which then led me to Debashish Bhattacharya. I don't own any yet but I'm definitely goin to Seasick Steve - New one. I've also been listening to as many versions as possible of the following: as I'm trying to learn the songs for a pub blues band project I'm sorting out HArd to handle - Black Crowes Thrill has gone What love will make you do - Little Milton Help Me - Sonny Boy Williamson Lucinda & Jockey Full of Bourbon ( Joe Bonnamassa does a good version of this ) - Tom Waits There's always a couple of Stevie Ray Vaughan cd's close by too Texas Flood etc
You've all given me a few months of stuff to search out and enjoy Great thread Michael
Also I've got some tunes by Roy Buchannon which I really like Anyone recommend his best stuff ? oh yeah and Danny Gatton Oh almost forgot Ainsley Lister - not got the latest stuff but saw him live a couple of weeks ago and he was great - Played some nice slide too
Canned Heat.... Time was.. Poor Moon...... and others Melanie Safka. Leftover wine and others. Johnny Winter... Highway 61.... and others. And more generally. what ever is put on on this forum in slide performances.
