    My mother in law's favorite!

    Today I've been listening to a lot of Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, and even got in Evil Woman by Crow.

    I have!(on your previous recommendation).
    I love ‘70s funk, but this is sounding too jam-y and congested for me. I seriously don’t know when I should take my next breath.

    A few weeks ago I was driving with a friend of mine, and this song came on the radio. I had TOTALLY forgotten about this little gem. I LOVE Warren Zevon, and I ADORE early R.E.M. so the Hindu Love Gods definitely "strike that right chord" with me. (pun intended unless people don't like it. then it's your fault.)

    I read Warren's bio. Most folks probably don't know that he toured with the Everly Bros. The poor guy was seriously troubled, tho. Maybe that's what helped him write some amazing songs. As a piano player myself, I love his music (just the chord progression to "Johnny, Strike Up The Band" can give me chills). I find the humor and insight in his music incredible. We won't see another like him.

  11. Once a song comes to mind for whatever reason -
    I do try to find some live versions . . . with good
    visuals of the instruments up close for alternate fingerings of guitar chords mostly (but also bass)

    Ramble On - Led Zeppelin (1969) - Irvine Meadows Oct. 1995

    Just the other day I found out that the streaming service I subscribe to has all of the Bob Wills Tiffany Transcription albums.

    See you all in about a month. :)

    That cover does not suit the song IMHO. And I do love early R.E.M. too.

    Amazing! Always thought he was a one "Werewolves in London" hit wonder (and what a hit!).
    Want to know more. Any indication where should I start?

    Start with his third album, "Excitable Boy". That's really his breakout album. Every album of his has some jewels.
    Once Linda Ronstadt covered "Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me", his music started to catch on with others. He was featured on Letterman often---the only person that Dave ever devoted an entire hour to. He was one of the very few that ever filled in for Paul Shaffer.

    Enjoy every sandwich.

    Now Pokey LaFarge (in association with YT suggestions) brought me to:

    Gotta stop. Kids start laughing' at me that daddy's again listening to his cowboy music.
    (And I'm wondering if that's safe/ sane for a European in the XXIst century to love the Carter Family that much?)

    Pokey Le Farge led me to his clarinetist Chloe Feoranzo. What an amazing talent! What I like is that she truly enjoys what she's doing---that smile says a lot. Cute, too!
