Good grief

Its 5.30 and I haven’t heard Johnny Cash all day

And only one Bob Dylan song

so listening to both 

at once

thanks to the marvels of modern technology

I was actually famous in my last year of high school after I recited the entire song of Alice's Rstaurant ( including differing voices and accents when required ) on the way home from a weekend school

Can't go wrong with these two for a start                Cheers,   Keith    

Just revisiting this one, Dirt Farmer by Levon Helm. I picked this one up a few years ago at a music sale, think I might have posted something about it before, but can't quite remember when that was.

Listening to folkie stuff I bought in the early 70’s

This kind of music was great all those decades ago and I’ve never really not listened to them and probably like them more now

In a way I’ve actually grown into them especially the sound (as in the music and vocals ) and what the songs mean beyond the romantic entanglements 

 

From memory I would have read about them in Rolling Stone magazine 

About 90% of the records I own are because of record reviews 

Hard to believe what a great magazine Rolling Stone was until the late 70’s

Chris Wilson- King For A Day

Another artist who has eluded me until now. Sadly, it turns out that I'm a bit late getting to the party.

Sadly missed.  His contribution to the Australian blues scene was enormous.

He used to do regular music-related book reviews for 'Off The Record' on RRR and always so insightful.

See if you can get one of his DVDs.  He had his own special style on stage.

the amazing rhythm aces
a great band to see live

now wouldn't that be a treat right now
let's hope that this new lockdown set of rules(which i totally agree with) works and we can rid our beautiful country of this insidious virus and get back to normal so we can see the musicians both local and international do what they do ,make ♬, isn't that that got us into hifi.

Thanks Keyse, the album is on it's way to me as we speak. 

Unpopular? Well, we all know what popular music can sound like.

Deep in that bottomless barrel of country music

June Carter Cash Singing old time songs 

Including a lot of her mothers

And Aunt and Uncle

And

Johnny and June

Of course

I love this record and the half dozen songs with Johnny Cash are among my favourite JC songs

Includes Bob’s song Song To Woody

Banjo has to be one of the best instruments 

My Ship Will Sail has to be one of my favourite songs made perfect by Earle’s banjo

Lot of great songs in country music about death and this is one of the best

Charley Crockett Sings The Valey

Really enjoy this album. Great voice! Unusual to get a country mono pressing these days. Eagerly waiting for new album supposed to be out soon.

When you are as wonderful as Johnny Cash everyone wants to play with you 

Like St Nick

Like Paul McCartney

Like Zimmerman

Speaking of Davey Crocket

Which I am

One of my first musical memories is of a song called Old Dan Tucker

Back in the 50’s when I was in singles figures but I can’t remember if I heard the song or read the words in a Davey Crockett comic when his good fictitious friend George Russell sang it so to speak

One things for sure I was somewhat bemused to hear Bruce Springsteen cover it on The Seeger Sessions?

No idea why I remember things like that

I wish I could recall all those science lessons I had as well

Not what I was intending to listen to this afternoon 

Harlem River Blues

I love the song

For singing along to the chorus 

In my mind 

Where no one can hear me?

When I heard it live realised it was about suicide

Lot of great sing a long type songs and then one day you realise the subject matter is a long way from the cheerful tune

Working for the MTA is one of hundreds if not thousands of train songs

Lyrically and sound wise it’s very standard train song theme and like most of his records could easily slot into the 40’s or 50’s

But probably the only song ever written about the New York subway

Great record and one of the very best of America’s young country music players

written in 2005 but with both eyes on 2020

And there is the words to sigh along with

Emmylou and John Prine do the spoken parts

Hello Dave, yep, a really good country artist and that's a particularly good album too. Don't know if you've caught the TV series Yellowstone, but Bingham plays a character known as Walker and gets to do a fair bit of guitar playing and singing in the show too. Top series BTW and Kevin Costner has deep roots in country music too, so understandable.

 

Cheers,

 

Keith

I’ve been meaning to get start on the series but decided on the other shows instead. Now I will certainly watch Yellowstone next and thanks for the heads up.
 

I like really enjoy Ryan Bingham’s Fear & Saturday Nights too. ?

Yeah, the music in Yellowstone is great, especially if you love country music and there are a couple of great characters too................Beth and Rip are terrific characters and the show is worth watching just to see them I reckon.:thumb:

 

Cheers,

Anyone remember Asleep at the Wheel?  Currently working my way through their massive back catalogue on Tidal.  Misery has never sounded so joyful - and so well played.

What else would I be listening to

Waiting for a brand new grandson to arrive

Country music 

Sublime acoustic guitar playing and singing from blind musician Doc Watson

Not that we are in the vicinity

Thanks to a certain virus

For all you record sound loving persons this record would improve the sound of your stereo whether it’s a $100 system or a $million dollar one

Only great records sound great and only great musicians can make a great sounding record?
