Rockabilly?
Posted: 9/23/2011 8:37:52 PM
I always thought Rockabilly was pretty big in Texas. Having great deejays like Bill Mack on the radio spinning the best for so many years, an ex-rockabilly star himself. Yes I love Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Rock And Roll, and Hillbilly sounds.

Folk Music....
Posted: 1/19/2009 2:00:02 PM
I love all that stuff BYRD! Thought I'd give a listen the other day to one of John Denver's final hits called "Eagles And Horses," don't know if you remember it, Still enjoy it but I much prefer earlier material. Always felt that "The Eagle And The Hawk" defined his life. I assume you're a huge Byrds fan as I am also. I listen to a wide range of music and surely these artists you mention are included.

Mulholland Drive - Please Explain This Movie!
Posted: 12/27/2008 9:13:16 PM
I'll try to help you by reminding you that David Lynch has a huge fascination with dreams, and the dreamworld. It's important you figure lot's of this stuff out for yourself. Lynch is my favorite director, and my favorite film of his is "Lost Highway," now theres a film that'll get your mind really thinking. Mulholland Drive a brilliant masterpiece. *****

Love 50's and 60's Sci-Fi and Classic horror films but the thing you're describing is an "Outer Limits" episode called "Premonition" from 1963. It's available on DVD on the Complete Outer Limits.

Do You Dig The Blues?
Posted: 1/10/2008 4:06:34 PM

I LOVE the blues...all great artists mentioned, but far too few women ... allow me to fix that.

Koko Taylor, Ida Cox, Sister Rosetta Tharpe , Alberta Hunter , Bessie Smith - so many great females howlin the blues. -

& the not so well known, but one of my personal favs Big Maybell - when she sings "Candy" she howls from a place I wish I had _ Man!


When Big Maybelle performs "Candy" there is something quite magical there, I can totally relate to what you're saying.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe is one of America's great treasures, just a brilliant talent. There may be few women in the blues field but if I really thought about it I could come up with a very extensive list of brilliant female blues artists.

What do guys think about a girl contacting them first?
Posted: 1/10/2008 3:59:39 PM
Sounds fine with me. If a lady finds that I am interesting to her, I think by all means she should contact me. I'd hate to think that she's out there attracted and interested and is afraid to communicate with me because she thinks I'll be put off by her attention.

Rock n Roll Guitarists, Did They Get Their Start From Jazz/Blues
Posted: 8/25/2007 5:01:45 PM
Larry Coryell is brilliant, he's a very underrated great guitarist, but Coryell and DiMeola had nothing to do with Clapton's sound. You need to look to Robert Johnson, Elmore James, and other great blues pioneers. Keep also in mind that Clapton and Page have been around since the late fifties/early sixties period (pre-Beatles). Coryell and Dimeola are relative newcomers in comparison. Loved Coryell's pop band Everything Is Everything, "Witchi Tai To," should have been a much bigger hit, it's a great record.

MLB in Montreal
Posted: 8/25/2007 4:33:12 PM
I was very upset when Montreal lost it's major league franchise. That should never happen to any MLB city. Unfortunately the Big O was a horrible place to watch a game, and the ownership never really did anything to remedy this situation. The strike drove most Expos fans in Montreal away, and with good reason. The payback ended up being a loss a MLB franchise. In all honesty it was MLB's fault but the fans in Montreal paid the price. I think as long as Montreal remains a divided city, it will severely hold that city back in everything potentially progressive their. During the sixties, Montreal was far ahead of Toronto as Canada's most important city, but the division has allowed Toronto to leave Montreal in the dust. I hope Montreal and it's citizens can get their act together, I love your town. Good Luck. No major league franchise anytime soon. How about a MLB franchise in Brooklyn.

Honest opinions on country music please
Posted: 8/13/2007 2:18:51 AM
Addy, I'm mainly into what you describe as classic country. Although there are a few of the current artists that are true to what country music really is. I must admit most of the music played on country radio today is not country to me. A good example of the country I listen to can be heard on XM 13 (Willie's Place [formerly Hanks Place])

B-Sides and other Rarities
Posted: 8/12/2007 2:59:59 PM
"Sugar Mountain" by Neil Young was not a b side. It was an A side, the single was released in 1968, its b side was "The Loner" (Reprise 0785). Years later when "Heart Of Gold" was issued, due to overwhelming demand, "Sugar Mountain" was re-issued on its flip side.
Now as to the subject at hand, some b sides I can remember really enjoying are:

Rain - The Beatles
How Soon Is Now - The Smiths
R.A.F. - Brian Eno with Snatch
I'm Still Dancing - The Presidents
I'm A Man - Bo Diddley
Nothing Between Us - Lynn Anderson
When Will She Tell Me She Needs Me - Chairmen Of The Board
Samba Pa Ti - Santana
Tequila - The Champs
Green Onions - Booker T and The Mgs

These are just some that immediately come to mind.

Vinyl vs. CD

I have that (Bowie) Mannish Boy material on CD. so never doubt. I have thousands of albums and thousands of cds. I'll never get rid of my albums but I've found much material on CD as well, including many things I thought would never see the light of day on CD. There is room for both in my life.

I've been a longtime fan of Ennio Morricone's music. "The Ectasy Of Gold" is a particular favorite, I also love "Here's To You" performed by Ennio with Joan Baez from "Sacco And Vanzetti." "Guitar Nocturne" from "Death Rides A Horse" is spectacular also. there really are too many great ones to mention.

Psych Furs were great, would they be in the best 200 bands since 1960? Not sure, there were many great bands since 1960 but I do like them. When their first album was released it was constantly on my turntable. I still go back to them and play their material occasionally, so I do enjoy them still.
