What Music Do You Listen To ?

  1. Hi Tsaphah:

    Yes, Bernie T. and Elton John certainly made a great team, I liked him from the first time I heard him sing. Kansas were the kings of the Rock ballads, but I can't say I've heard that song before. it was very moving and very good.

    Frank Zappa is a favorite of mine. His music was never boring or predictable, and his compositions were very complex. Always a great listen. Before I was a JW I frequented the concert scene quite regularly as the Philadelphia area had a lot of very good venues to see artists at. One of my most memorable concerts was Frank Zappa and the Mothers with special guests George Duke on Keyboards and Captain Beefhart on soprano saxophone and vocals at the Trenton Civic Center just across the river in New Jersey, which happened to be the last concert played there. They had to tear it down not too many weeks after Zappa played there due to a fire. That video of Dimeola and Zappa is not the best quality but that song is screaming good.

    Speaking of Rockabilly, have you ever heard this piece by Roy Buchanan? It's called Sweet Dreams, enjoy!

    Sorry about the repeat, I wanted to add a line and somehow posted twice.

  2. Hi Tsaphah:

    i heard that Richie Havens died a couple days back. When I was a Senior in High School he played a concert at my High Schools Gymnasium. It was a big school and had a very large field house that seated about 2-3,000 people. Unfortunately, I could not make the show and regreted it as I liked him very much. My Junior year we had Chicago play there but that time I could not get tickets so I missed out on both those shows. Did manage to catch Seatrain at another local high school, do you remember them? Check this out. My freshman year of college at the community college in Bucks County they had Bruce Springstein and the E street Band with Chick Corea. What an odd match-up huh? But it made for a very good concert. Chick Corea was great but the Boss knocked everybody dead and he was just starting out and entering the big time. His album at the time was the Wild, the Innocent and the E street shuffle. He played his heart out.

  3. Hey Tsaphah:

    What could be better than a live version of the Allman Brothers Band playing Stormy Monday? Nothing you say, well how about Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks and the rest of the Brothers trading licks with Eric Clapton on this classic? What say you?

    Hey Frank,
    As soon as I saw Roy Buchanan’s name I knew it would be awesome. He’s probably one of the best “unknown†guitarists around. He’s another one gone. He played on a lot of records by many known artists. The unknown studio musician and road concert bands.

    Allman’s, Absolutely amazing. I’ve always enjoyed the Bros. Stormy Monday is truly Southern Blues at it’s best.

    OST of the Ulysses' gaze.

     
  6. Hi Tsaphah:

    I saw Roy Buchanan play in concert twice. Once was at a Ten Years After concert where he was the opening act and he also played a couple numbers with TYA and at a small "dinner club" in New Jersey called the Satellite Lounge where he played with just a drummer and bass player. That was a very small place that sat maybe 2-300 at tables and you could actually get drinks and small food items during the show. My table was about 15 feet away from him during the concert and he was amazing that night. He hung around for about 10-15 minutes after the show and spoke to a few people but I was not able to get his ear. I wanted to ask him if he was involved with Jehovah's Witnesses in any way, cause I had heard from a sister who was previously from the music scene in the 60's and 70's that knew him that said he was baptized as a JW but had fallen out of practice. Don't know for sure if that is true, but I also don't believe this sister would make that up. It is alleged that he committed suicide in a jail cell but the family and close friends always felt he was murdered by the police but that could never be proven.

  7. Hi Utuna:

    Although classical is not generally my taste in music, I do like the strings very much and that was a really nice piece. I do like string quartets and quintets..

    Dear Frank,

    I'm glad that you like it too. Quite sad music but it's nonetheless beautiful and I'm always impressed how music can convey and communicate feelings. The film isn't the best I've ever watched but there were beautiful and powerful messages and feelings conveyed too.

    I was just made aware of interesting fact.the beat of the music can alter your heart beat..a song with a healthy rythm will help your heart to pump correctly.. a song with a wild heartattack like beat. well do you like heartattacks just listening to some of that so called music is enough to give you one. classic music dosent always make you feel good either some of it was purposefull made to convey certain feelings to the listener. now for a shocker! I was listening to some old german bar room songs from the 1950 era a certain song with imoral words is the exact melody of a recently added kingdom song Im sure neither the germans were pokeing fun nore was the society delibrate in picking up the pickle song!

    Here’s one who influenced a lot of early English/U.K. bands and guitarists. Many super groups began by playing his songs. Bob Dylan stole some of his songs and claimed he wrote them. This is true Delta Blues.

    Robert Johnson - Love In Vain
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnsBlY4rKwM

    Hey Utuna,
    I loved that piece. It’s rather soothing and peaceful. It’s amazing how “music has charms to soothe the savage breast.â€￾ That’s the true quote by William Congreve."Music has charms to soothe a savage breast," which is the first line of the play, spoken by Almeria in Act I, Scene 1. (The word "breast" is often misquoted as "beast", and "has" sometimes appears as "hath".)
    :D Unfortunately it also has the power to incite violence, along with feelings of patriotism.



     
  12. Willie Nelson

    Hi All:

    I heard this song last night on a TV singing competition show. It was a half decent rendition, but here it is by Willie Nelson. I think it is one of the best love songs ever written. Simple but beautiful...

    Hey Tsaphah,

    This song is just one minute long... I'll look for another version but I just wanted to let you know. :(

    Uh ? Well, I started it again, it lasted till the end but the timer still stops at 1:01. There must be a bug somewhere...

    Thanks for sharing it, it's a touching song.
