I used to seek new artists by tracking the song writers, or back up band members and if they did solos. One guy came to do a concert at Bogart's restaurant and cafe* where I had already seen Arlo Guthrie and Maria Muldaur among others. Steve Goodman put on a good show and I had an album or two of his. He wrote Arlo's City of New Orleans among others. Died early from leukemia in '84, but exuded life in everything he wrote. I didn't know of the Chicago folk scene, but John Prine hooked up with Goodman through that venue. Both John and Steve tell stories with their songs.

*University of Cicinnati, Clifton neighborhood, great college town. http://www.bogarts.com/ btw local_dylan_gives_bogarts a surprise. When I went it held 450 to 500 seats. Open seating, and if you went and had dinner before the show you got first pick, or just kept your dinner seat and table and pitchers of beer.

One of these days I'm going to learn to stay away from certain topics, all they do alternately really piss me off only to later throw me into a depression. So I didn't so much ignore the T.W. link as not wanting to go down that road, though I do like and have a few of his albums.

Hey how about a little Steve Miller?

Ah, I think I found the whole album here;

God, I haven't heard this album in ages, I've got to learn how to route this utube stuff through my dac to my stereo.

As Taj always lifts my spirits I thought I'd try and find the Giant Step album but could only get them one piece at a time. This one is fun;

My kids taught me the remote speakers from your laptop ability. A little usb transmitter to a remote base, and treble speakers is amazing. Of course you can buy low and upgrade just as we did during vinyl and analogue days.

I like TW, and associate him with SF, only because some small pubs in SF I visited in the '80s played Waits. . I listen to big band too. Doo wop and bubble gum are not ignored by me either. I think one can catalogue the various genre and evolution of music by memory (songs that trigger a feeling) or just progession of cultural needs.

I bought a Ray Connif cd once, it reminded me of my folks' selections that I grew up with. I only played it once, but it served a purpose for me.

In the MRI chambers in Sweden you can listen to music instead of the mechanical clacking the machine generates. I had my choice of a wide variety, I chose Sinatra. I hear of people's MRI bad experiences, but I just laid and was serenaded. I was smiling the whole time.

Steve Miller your link didn't work for me but this did. I saw him at a stadium concert in Cincinnati.

Hmm, that's odd I just tried the Miller set. It came up fine. Any ways it was the Sailor album from uh uh 68ish(?). Hey! The Sachmo Ella set was cool though, I'd never heard them together.

Don't know why I can't figure out how to route a feed from my Pro to my stereo. My set up goes; screen share to a Mac Mini that controls and feeds a seperate 3 terra bit storage drive (for music) thru the Wavelength dac to my stereo. Why can't I use my Pro through the Mini to the Dac to my stereo?

I'd bought a mess of vinyl (or given) and going through them at home I pulled out a Hendrix Band of Gypys double album. Removing to inspect the condition of the platters a 78 fell out of a Krupa group after he left the Goodman bad. Way cool!

One of the greatest songwriters' tune in both genders: Baby It's Cold Outside Lady Gaga did this recently, too.

btw, I got sound from my laptop to my receiver and speakers with a plug in to the headphone jack on the computer, then to alternate input on the back of the receiver. I also digitized some LPs for mp3 format, it's more portable than a turntable, this was 20 years ago before most song books were converted.

My mistake, I thought it was a Johnny Mercer song, but it was Frank Loesser (of Leesser & Lowe when Lerner & lowe wasn't possible) Mercer was who I meant as on of the greatest songwriters.

Yak! Don't even start talking about converting analog to digital back to analog! I'm still transferring my CD collection. Only a couple of hundred more to go now. Got a way to quickly do something over 2,000 pieces of vinyl after I finish with the CD's? I'm open to suggestions. Yep, I know another hard drive is my future as the one I have is closing in on getting full (WAV loaded).

The head phone connection would be okay (I guess) if I didn't have the music in one place and my desk set up in two different areas, my screen sharing cable (music control) runs about 125 feet. I suppose if I wanted to spend the money I could do what I have in the house, a set of self powered referance speakers running directly off the computer. For the most part though I'm happy with my hard drive set up. It just seems that it should be simple to feed from one source to another (even if it isn't going to be up to snuff because of data transfer rate, er rather like XM radio). Yeah I admit it, I'm idiot with computers.

So if you bothered to waded through that here's something maybe to make it worth while:

Crazy 'Bout an Automobile has Ry appeal.

A few years ago some musician was asked what album if he could only choose one would he want on a desert island. Ry Cooder's 'Paradise and Lunch' or maybe 'Chicken Skin Music' was his choice. Ditty Wah Ditty is on the former.

No issues at all on this end Doug, it's just been one of those days is all. I started today with Freak'n Out and it has gone down hill from there. Now it seems I've lost that album off my hard drive some where some how because I can't find it. B-u-t I do want to dedicate this song to the board after scanning the threads from today (nah, it can't happen here);

rs, I enjoy this thread with every post. I was watching a lot of Rod Stewart lately and remembered his Downtown Train hit was a Waits tune. Sometimes cover versions are better than the original. I still like Dolly Parton's song by Dolly over Whitney Houston's version that billboarded. I will always love you, Dolly , I was a Dolly fan in the '70s, and still am. Laborisgood knows I have a soft spot for schmaltz, his term. I know the song but it can bring tears to my eyes still, I think it's because I'm getting old.

Bluegrass Stairway to Heaven is one I just heard for the first time. Doors' cover, and Beatles' cover were not so good. Zappa's was alright, but believe it or not, Dolly's was better than the three of them. She sang it like Sinatra did his songs, with feeling, or at least I thought so.

Yes, I saw them in concert, and Pink Floyd. Eagles with Joe Walsh were great too. New Riders on the Purple Sage were at Red Rocks, anybody is good there. The amphitheater in the Rockies is just awe inspiring. That is a government created, government built, commons run, of benefit to masses for generation after generation. We have an old castle that gives me a similar feel. Johnny Cash played here, the Beachboys played here.

I never warmed up to R. Stewart's style. Shrug, a lot of people think he's the best and no doubt he has talent, I just never warmed to his music. On the otherhand I always liked the vivaciousness Dolly brought with whatever she did. She is a hoot.

Here's one that can always make my eyes a little blurry; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Obm1ex9VqFk

Hell as we have the kleenx out; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KSSvCVplIE , yeah I fell in love with that Bakerfield sound down in the valley as a kid. We used to wander into one of any thousand back room bar every mom and pop store had in those days. Yep, a jukebox, a 21 table set off in the corner, a bar with warm 25cent drafts and a shuffleboard if it was really up scale. They didn't cared about no 15 16 year old kids, if we had a quarter we were old enough. Often some dusty dead tired okie would wander in and first stop would be the jukebox before he'd dump himself in a bar stool, throw a shot down before chasing it with a warm beer and be crying in a freshened beer before the first song would finish. Could be George Jones, early J. Cash, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard or any number of others I can't think of right off the top. Sometimes you got the sorry story but mostly they stayed off on their own self. Some times you could make a rough guess from the series of songs they'd pick off the Wurlitzer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Smlaq1ezQRM

When she went the full switch she had converted to Islam like Cat had. Her name then was Yustef Tubauls.

CS&N is good, accoustic and harmony is beautiful.

Perhaps the primary guitar piece in the "greatest rock song ever" was ripped of from someone else:

http://time.com/3528555/led-zeppelin-loses-first-round-in-stairway-to-heaven-lawsuit/

But then again, ain't all the best rock & roll just Bo Diddly, Buddy Holly & Chuck Berry re-treads?

I think the deuce reference might be a '32 Coupe car reference ..... think Little Deuce Coupe - Beach Boys. But I always preferred the "douche" reference as a young impressionable boy. Springsteen is an insufferable gear head.

Speaking of rip-offs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWMdiRq0XKE

It's all the same song, just add a few notes here or remove a couple there. Speed it up a little or slow it down. I hear other songs within other songs all the time.

That's because we human's while we can 'make' sound beyond what we can hear, we can't 'hear' it. So there's only a finite number of notes or sounds we can work with if we confine ourselves to 'music'. Then we get into different genres of music, well just because of what we are we like to classify. I would argue much of what we listen to now (classified) as popular music can easily be traced back both in tonality and structurally to the early 1900's and further. As a general rule people find tonal music more pleasing and more easily accessible than atonal music:

So we stick with pretty simple for every day lazing about, which necessarily limits our choices.

"Music is the space between the notes" - Claude Debussy

I remember hearing/reading some trippy Jerry Garcia meanderings that waxed philosophical about space and time in music. It always struck me as appropriate to his playing which so welcomes the space between the notes while so many others try to fill up every nook and cranny with more notes.

When you come out of the gate at "11" it's hard to kick it up a notch when the appropriate time presents itself. It's all about relativity when it comes to time and space, right?

No real argument from me there Labor as I've been a long time Gracia fan, but I have always felt it was more about the space between the ears that counted rather than the notes or cadence. If you like I'll call up (if I can find them) of some tribal music from Africa or Southern Asian regions. Though I can't really differentiate between tribal communities, I'm reasonability familar with their 'songs'.

And yeah, I've not much use for any of the naval gazing self indulgent bs that seems to have over taken almost all of music of any genre.

laborisgood, glad to see you are still around, haven't seen you for awhile.

I saw a nuclear sub documentary and thought of our conversation around that when another documentary was posted (or the same one which I just forgot).

I found a book about 'The Engineer' and _____ (a term drc2 used often, but forgot) so until I find it again /Best-Ever-Book-Engineer-Jokes-ebook

rs, laborisgood and I had a whole thread of posts closed with lines of lyrics that fit our ongoing discussion. He knows his stuff like you do, too. He is '70s centric, I'm '60s centric (with big band '40s and '50s) but rock and roll forever. btw, my daughter's spotify was playing in her room last night while she was doing homework and "Those fingers in her hair, that sly come hither stare, that leaves my conscience bare, it's Witchcraft, that crazy witchcraft...." Frank is her choice, so I am damn proud of my work. Rod Stewart was next, and Stewart has done Sinatra too.

Didn't mean to leave you out Doug, ya keep my mind working with every post you make. I was just afraid I'd run off Labor with something that didn't maybe come out quite right or taken as intented. Don't want to run run anyone off, eh eh that is enre to music. It's all good as far as I'm concerned. Music is such a mood thing though, take the Van Zandt 'Dead Flowers' number and compare it to the Stones version. They are almost exactly the same in notes and exact in words but one is a pissed off f'k you song and the other comes across as a sad lamenting farewell song. And it isn't just cadence.

Meanwhile momma has gone shopping (or something?) let's play it while we can:

I've seen nothing wrong with the flow at all. (that's what she said to the parmacist)

Darin's was from The Three Penny Opera which I use to prove I have culture (aside from a petri dish infection). I don't like opera, but I can say I like the Three Penny Opera as interpreted by Darin. The link has Cindi Lauper performing, she looks good, sounds good, and shows how talented she is. Lotte Lenya* is in the Berlin version. (circa 1930+/-) Brecht and ? wrote the play, and there are other tunes just as dark and satirical that 20s and 30s Germany was prone to.

*Mack by Lotte (her name gets mentioned in the translation)

Hey RS, my thick skin (and thick head) preclude me from being runoff. Especially by someone partaking in my favorite pastime of carrying on about useless and obscure musical minutia. I've just been busy.

Just imagine my excitement with Doug's headline in the above post when I thought he was making a reference to the Flying Burrito Brothers. This song was released by them prior to the Sticky Fingers album which also contains Dead Flowers:

If I were pressed Doug I could've placed Mack The Knife from the Three Penny Opera, it was just a handy popular Darin tune. Though I do prefer this one; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KmKkV3ddAo

I assumed you were talking about Sinatra rather than Zappa. But about Mack the Knife, I have always liked Satchmo's version over Darin's ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnOWikgTG2Q Kinda funny story, I'd been listening to Satch's version for awhile before Darin came out with his version, of course Darin was a hit. Well a babysitter who was going gaga over the new Mack and I came to blows over which one was better. Darin or Armstrong. The @%$&*#`~~ was bigger than me.

As you're a Jerry fan Labor have you heard him with Old and In the Way? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA35Oozc8NM

Jukebox

From the Jukebox was some Sam Cooke. -the-real-story-behind-sam-cookes-death

1:47:02 of Sam Cooke He should've had a body guard. There is a life and times of Sam video too. Beatles and Stones seeking joint work, Rod Stewart emulating him. He was on top at 33 in 1964. btw, he was a bookworm. He and his sister took the maximum number of books from the library every week.
