Something a little later. ..

 

The amazing Roy Orbison was still doing the biz.. only months before his untimely passing.

 

What a voice!!

 

 

Orbison's last album.. Mystery Girl.. was as good as anything he had done in his long career.  This is a standout from an album of standout tunes.

Love The Big O. My sister brought home “It's Over” in the early 60s and I was very impressed. She also bought “In Dreams” another classic. I love his falsetto parts in “In Dreams” and “Only the Lonely “.

Who can forget “Oh, Pretty Woman” another of his many superb performances.

I very much enjoyed his time with The Travelling Wilburys. It seems unreal that he, George Harrison and Tom Petty are no longer with us.

Wiki describes The Wilburys as a super group and of that there is no doubt.

Indeed. My Sister had his album In Dreams..which is a cracker if you can find it and has things such as Beautiful Dreamer, All I Have To Do is Dream  plus of course the title song and Blue Bayou.

I just went into Youtube to look for ice hockey tactical videos and came across something completely different. In the comments someone said “I don’t  know why but I finished watching this with tears in my eyes.” So did I!

Me too.  It's obviously staged..but it is a fabulous demonstration of the power of music to move and unite people.

A coincidence you should play that.

 

Recently I've wandering around YouTube listening to The Seekers who I used to think were the ultimate in uncool. I've now changed my opinion, and realised that Judith Durham had a superb voice.

I agree her voice is sublime. Georgy Girl is one of my favourites too. The film has some great shots of London in the Swinging 60s.

My other favourite female singers include Karen Carpenter, Cass Elliot, Dusty Springfield, Sandie Shaw and dear old Cilla.

Beautiful sound of the ''Spinners''............imagine someone like them on 'Eurovision''..........the rest of the rubbish wouldnt stand a chance............

Don't get me started on Eurovision... It went downhill after Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson came second in 1957...

 

Anyway.. what I'm listening to as I type is Joni Mitchell's beautiful album 'Ladies of the Canyon'.. but I've posted a fair bit of Joni lately.. so.. earlier I was listenng to Iris De Ment's lovely album....

'Infamous Angel'.  I love her 'primitive' singing style...which just proves to me that it is the human imperfections in music which give it its real value.  Also. I reckon anybody can relate to her feelings about Home..wherever it might be..

Let it run...

 

 

Earlier. I was listening to the 50th Anniversary Re-Issue of Crosby Stills Nash and Young's 'Deja Vu' .  For a price, you get a re-press of the original vinyl, a CD of same, three more CDs of previously unissued stuff.. out takes etc.  It's gorgeous.  On radio the other day I heard the recording of Joni Mitchell singing 'Our House' with Graham Nash.... when they were together. Never intended for release..and imperfect..but beautiful..  I haven't played that CD yet.. I'm saving it for when I need a special moment...

I can see why Graham Nash still..to this day.. talks constantly of 'when I was with Joni'.  Poor lad...

 

 

Let this one run too.  Even if you don't 'dig' the sentiments..you will never hear better harmonies..

and the most expensive cover to Manufacture, all hand done, regarding pic's, plus gold leaf, I have this..an only American release?

 

I'm sure a read that Physical Graffiti was the most expensive to produce, obviously..much later..

 

The first CS&N was the one with the blotting paper cover, as you previously stated first Joni, is Textured.

The song was all about the "Right to Roam". Written by Ewan MacColl I've walked and climbed in most of the places in this video. I really hope to see some of them again on one last trip to the UK. 

Stuff this bloody Covid, it is taking away time to do things before I get too old to do them.

Not heard that for ages, Oz! I, too, have stood on the edge of the Downfall, and seen all the valley outspread (and the water blowing upwards!). 

 

My first experience of mountains was going on a camping trip and persuading the driver of our van to stop at the top of the Llanberis pass. It was pitch black, couldn’t see a thing, but I could feel the mountains and smell them. Never forgot that feeling.

Oz  that  brought back memories, spent many days in the peak district and  Kinder also stood on the down fall , seen it all froze up and the hare as well. If I could only do it now but songs like that revive the memories of happy times.

Oz we could have a Notstalgian ascent of Kinder open to those who would like to meet up and do a walk(ramble).

Hows about up Jaggers Clough ?

Ben, Affer, Trogg and Siddha, I'd be in that, might be a bit slower than last time getting up there. I just wish these brain dead anti-vaxer numpties would get themselves vaccinated so we could all get on with life.

Remember walking around Snowdon singing Men of Harlech to these words...

March up Snowdon 

With your woad on

Don't give f*ck

If you get rained or snowed on.

I'll slip a couple in here then, while no one's looking. Going from from the high life of Paris and the Sorbonne to the village green and the mountains.

 

 

When the singer feels it, the audience feels it. For sure this audience of one does.
