Thread started with Bruce, so, more Bruuuuuuce



I grew up with this -- my older brother bought the album when it was released (may have been '75, or '76 in our location) and played it a lot.

^ enjoying as I write ...

In a very different direction -- traditional Irish -- but just to mix things up a bit (no, really because I like their sound a lot), played by two brothers from Mallorca:

A track from the movie "The snake god":




That is one fun song! Thanks for sharing it.  :Thmbsup:

Very nice.  I'm not big on prog-rock (Rush, Yes, and ELO just about encompass all I care about the genre, to be honest) but this was enjoyable.  The keyboard guy obviously enjoys his role very much, and has the chops to back it up.  The only thing that bugged me was though the vocalist was very good, I kept getting the feeling that he was 'holding back'... that there's much more power to his voice than he lets through, as though he doesn't want to overpower the other musicians, when in fact a little more chutzpah with the pipes would have fit right in.  Just my 0.02, bravos all 'round otherwise.

He does seem to be an extremely powerful vocalist with something over a four+ octave range. And I think he does keep it all somewhat in check because of that.

They have a bunch of vids up on YT. Some tunes as good or arguably better than the above. A few less so.

I still haven't decided if I really do like them, but I'm definitely gonna be keeping them on my radar for the time being. Their bass player interests me enough to watch them for just that alone. And the keys player is definitely capable and fun to watch since he does seem to be enjoying himself so much. That's something you can't say that about most keyboard players these days. Most of them look like they just smelled something funny whenever you look at them.

I had In The Court of the Crimson King on vinyl.  The inside album cover had the lyrics.  I had them memorized back then.  I Talk to the Wind I enjoyed singing the most.

The brilliant Joan Armatrading. A woman who packs more soul and musical taste into a single note - and more meaning into a single verse - than some smusician songwriters do in their entire career. IMO she's one of the finest things out of the UK to ever hit vinyl or the stage performing Love and Affection. This recent one live in Glastonbury



And here's the orignal studio version from 1976 that put her on the radar. I think it's interesting how the passing years added depth to this simple but lovely song.



Lyrics
Joan Armatrading - Love And Affection 1976

I am not in love
But I'm open to persuasion
East or West
Where's the best
For romancing

With a friend
I can smile
But with a lover
I could hold my head back
I could really laugh
Really laugh

Thank you
You took me dancing
'Cross the floor
Cheek to cheek
But with a lover
I could really move
Really move
I could really dance
Really dance
Really dance
Really dance
I could really move
Really move
Really move
Really move

Now if I can feel the sun
In my eyes
And the rain on my face
Why can't I
Feel love

I can really love
Really love
Really love
Really love
Really love
Love love love love
Love love love love

Now I got all
The friends that I want
I may need more
But I shall just stick to those
That I have got
With friends I still feel
So insecure

Little darling I believe you could
Help me a lot
Just take my hand
And lead me where you will
No conversation
No wave goodnight
Just make love
With affection

Sing me another love song
But this time
With a little dedication
Sing it, sing it
You know that's what I like
Once more with feeling
Give me love
Give me love
Give me love
Love

(Instrumental)

Make love with affection
Sing me another love song
But this time
With a little dedication
Sing it, sing it
You know that's what I like

With affection
Sing me another love song
But this time
With a little dedication
Sing it, sing it
You know that's what I like

With affection
With a little dedication
Once more with feeling
You know that's what I like

Brings back memories. A long-hair hippie-type band I was in going by the name of Babble-On (Har-har! Get it? God, we thought we were soool freekin' cooool!) spent about half a year getting 20th Century Schizoid Man down note for note. That was considered as badass a song as badass got back then. We used to do that number immediately before The End by the Doors - which is how we usually wrapped up our show. (Talk about a pretentious little bunch of jerks huh? Gotta love the late 60s and early 70s. Not.  ;D)

We were a fairly bad attitude bunch of young-uns back then.

Cool.  My two best buds in high school turned me onto The Doors.  All I had heard was some stuff on the radio like Light My Fire and People Are Strange.  They hipped me to the stuff they didn't play on Top 40.  I did see The Doors with Jim one time in Boston with my two friends.  We picked the wrong show since it was tough to get out of town out to the burbs by public transit.  We came out the door at the end of the first show and the entire square was packed with people waiting to get in for the second.  I think Jim was saving his voice since he had to do it back to back.  But it was a few laughs with him teasing the groupies and it was cool to hear the tunes live.

I think the musicians I never got to see play live that rankled the most were Hendrix, Miles, Trane.  Sonny Rollins played an outdoor concert in Fort Lauderdale(the one sponsored by Kenny Rodgers when he had the chain of chicken restaurants) and I didn't catch it.  When he passes away he'll likely be added to the short list.  I did get to see Jackie McLean there though.  Quite amazing in person.  There was this drummer in the band who must have been on supplements or something.  When the band wanted to chill for a few minutes Jackie would just point to him and the guy would do another psychotic 20 minute solo.  :)

Anyway, I never sang in a band.  Just in the shower.  Although I did pop off with a medley of Elvis tunes one time in a restaurant after a few brews.  The patrons enjoyed it.  A long long time ago.  :)

Eumir Deodato - Also Sprach Zarathustra



(you may need youtube unblocker)

was hoping to find a video of the scene where this was used in Being There (IMDB link) with/by Peter Sellers. But no joy there...



EDIT// was looking for this on amazon (.de & .co.uk) it's available quite cheaply on vinyl -- even in the 1973 pressing, or as mp3, but not on CD :-/
Dont mind digital, but would prefer to be able to get it in better quality format (ideally as well as mp3).

Ed (aka 40hz) once again showing some Puppy love. This one a bit of a departure from the usual avant-jazz-world thing Snarky Puppy usually does. Here's Tony Scherr doing what he does best, backed by Mike League & Co. - who just might be the best thing currently going!  ;D (Bass lovers and watchers: check out the Hofner 500/1 "Beatle Bass" Mike is using! And to think so many people think that little bass is only good for doing Beatles covers.)

That's a great album! One of my favs by Loreena.

Which puts me in mind of this video. There's many of versions of To Drive the Cold Winter Away - many of which are a little over the top. Even Loreena beams out that high note enough you need to watch your levels if you're wearing headphones... and you value your eardrums. But this solo voice with lute rendition by Jim Keyes hits what I think is an authentic and rather sweet spot. Done nicely with no pretensions to virtuosity or art, I think it captures the spirit and simplicity of the song beautifully, even if it is a very abbreviated version with some modernization of the original lyrics. I invite the DC community's opinion.

enjoyed very much :up:
for contrast (for those who dont know what we're on about) here's the version from Loreena McKennitt (from a playlist with most or all of the album To Drive the Cold Winter Away):
https://www.youtube....X_k7mfjVvHIPj4WMS6zP
I'm not a hifi guy, but it really needs a quiet space, and something better than laptop speakers would be nice :-)
There's something almost formal about that album from Loreena, some of the songs are quite old I'd guess. I love it myself
