A link that showed up in the menu column- undiscovered talent, there is music in the second clip, so as not to diverge from the thread topic.

Jackson Browne fans might like the Poussette Dart Band

Zenzoë, thanks for the Lindley link, I'm listening and loving even more music now.

However I do not have Amnesia, music stays in some brain cells I still have left.

May you dance at the student union in Michigan.

Cowboy Junkies came to me from a John Prine tune, Margo comes from a music family, too.

btw, RS and Zoë, this is my favorite thread, thanks a lot for all your input.

Acapella, and for the conservatives, it's not in Mexico.

Another, same artist, and links to Hardin and Burdon, among others.

I like this Bush

she did a few numbers with This guy, too.

btw, I've been reading a bit about Wittgenstein, he felt the motivation or basis of any thoughts or conversation was as important if not more important than the information presented. I like that and try to explain why I post what I do. All of the artists I posted above were connected via my Youtube.se (se-Sweden). woops, I forgot I had already loaded my vpn, so I'm in LA, CA as far as the internet knows.

One last post, I don't usually hog the thread but this is too good to wait.

Clapton, McCartney and Ringo are as close to the Beatles one can get. Who could fill for John? Billy Preston is good too.

Harrison's boy looks like George.

Just a quick in and out today......................

Ain't no one that could sit in for John and besides who could sit in for G. Martin? Asking for someone to fill John's shoes is like the present day Grateful Dead concerts, lets just plug somebody into Jerry's spot. Then of course talking about Beatles can't be done without mentioning G. Martin. Another artist he worked with:

I think I've posted this album once before in this thread, shrug whatever.

So anyways, waking up with music going through the head. I played this album to death back in the day and woke up many a morning with one of 6 or 7 songs getting replayed in my head while stirring around in the early morning.

K, take a look, listen if you like

A tuning fork dings with each mood/scene change

In the menu off to the right of my screen are even more diverse selections from native american to spanish guitar.

This instrument was there too. One man's relaxation is another man's noise. or one's weed- is one's flower [but you can't bogart flower...unless you're baking]one's treasure- is one's trash...

No accounting for taste ..hmm.. Because what is a taste credit? or a taste debit? My taste is obviously overdrawn.

Thanks, douglaslee. I'll check it out tomorrow when I'm at my designated media station.

I rarely run loops on this drive.

Hey, its amazing how people find music everywhere.

I stumbled across a video on U-Tube once, a woman from the islands banging out a carribean tune on an open-tuning guitar sitting in front of her on the ground.

I doubt she ever studied classical music, but she sure had a handle on those harmonies and that rhythmic beat.

... still, not bluegrass, I know.

.
There was a group a few years ago - "Treasures in the Trash" or something like that.

They actually played garbage cans and lids - very high powered - great performance - did not miss a beat.

I wonder what happened to them.

.
I was really ill for a long time.

I'm on the mend now, thank goodness.

For a period of time, I was practically comatose.

For months, I played the meditation tapes from Thich Nhat Hanh on a loop, nonstop.

Every time he hit the gong - 'gohnnggg' - between meditations, it was like a lifeline through the void.

When I finally became more awake and active, I ran "The Lost Chord" by Jonathan Goldman on a loop, 24/7 for about 3 years.

These have given me a harmonic field to reference my own frequencies (and infrequencies).

... I would say its been very helpful.

.
By the way, when I first saw a couple of your posts, I had to laugh (peeling eyebrows off the ceiling).

'This guy is coming off of ten walls at once! Talk about a whirlwind!'

I hardly begin to appreciate your genious. Thanks for sharing your journey!

K., I was very into meditative and various native music at one time during my existence so far. Try this for healing:

Sounds of Africa are too diverse to condense into one or two selections so help yourself to that continent.

And sorry no luck so far with coming up with any true representation of a temple bell out of Asia. Seems everyone wants to add their own sound effects to the track. So there's plenty of that kind of stuff....but I won't post it as traditional monastery meditative callings.

Nope it ain't blue grass.

OMG, that's incredible. Goes straight to it— no way to explain it.

To K. as well, I'm glad you brought up meditative stuff. I'm very attached (please excuse the Zen heresy) to chants and use several of them in my Healing Breath meditation. Among the best, at least for me, is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNaI9MLQp6s It opens me up, is all I can say. I have no idea what the words mean —a prayer to the Hindu god, Hanuman— but it doesn't seem to matter. I find his voice, the whole thing, deeply comforting, moving.

Thank you all. I bookmarked the links -- no guarantee I'll know where to find them next time I turn around.

Even so, I appreciate the references ... sidelinks on all are welcomed. You folks are so tuned in.

I am seriously out of touch. My sister gave me a didge awhile ago.

Its really unusual ... extreme low frequencies, ultra high harmonics , who knows what in between ...

... loosely flapping lips ... quiet horsetalk ... whinnying winds ... frequencies pervade ...

I hear its good to let it rest on the earth when playing (great resonator).

"... what!? You mean the whole earth is a resonating chamber?!"

((... Oh Yes, ... that, and so much more .... ))

Thanks to all of you for sharing.

A bit of a departure, the Celtic link in the last post prompted a need for perspective,The Minstrel was both a musician as in Celtic link and entertainer as in Ylvis link. Terry Jones is a Python and who best to offer perspective? I'll post more on Language and Thought, because a medieval link was posted there too.

I think there a lot of artists in the shadows and I enjoy them all.- Sing sing sing again, dance club version. Now I heard it with gin & roses' lime juice, pot, a 1/4 of a Cosby Q (my name for it now) and probably a snort. The song played all 6+ minutes and rocked, but then what wouldn't in my state of mind? I bought the 12" analog single and played it over Bic Venturi speakers with a 100 watt receiver. I used to blast the courtyard in DC with it and could see other tenants dancing (think Rear Window - Hitchcock) -(though they didn't dance and bury)

Tom Rush doing Joni Mitchel, I mean singing a Joni Mitchel song.

Joni singing the same song with lyrics scrolling.

It means more to me now than when I first heard it. It's a beatiful song. Rush's rendition is better.

And the seasons they go round and round

And the painted ponies go up and down

We're captive on a carrousel of time

We cannot return we can only look

Behind from where we came

And go round and round and round

Some detective work for The Best Music You've Never Heard on Amazon (I posted a link but my account with Amazon came up)

I'm still scanning from the "Look Inside" Amazon feature but so far:

Joseph Arthur

David Ackles

Fred Neil (Everybody's Talking- Nilsson didn't write it)Another side of this life (I've been leadin') Jefferson Airplane picked it up.

Bill Fay

Gary Farr

Laurie Anderson is in here and I like her stuff, but it's not commercial so I think that's why she's in the book.

I've listened to Ackles, Arthur and Neil, they are good. Elton John thought Ackles was better than himself.

Enter the title on Amazon's page, then look inside for more artists, there is some good stuff and they deserve a listen.

Keith Emerson, Gary Farr, T-bones 1966 (before ELP)

Robert Plant w/Fairport Convention tribute to Sandy Denny died in'78 at 31yo

Sandy Denny btw, she was British folk but sounds Irish folk to me.

Terry Reid wrote this famous Sinatra tune Jimmy Page wanted him for a new band that became Zeppelin, but he wanted to tour as part of the Stones and didn't want to say no to Keith Richards. Deep Purple asked him to front their band too. Keith Moon had just died in his flat, the same building that Cass Elliot died in the year before.

Albert Lee not Alvin, some of the best guitar picking ever, Clapton agrees, Emmy Lou poached him. If lightning had fingers and a guitar Albert Lee would beat him in a picking duel. Just Because I think so doesn't make it so, see for yourself. Heads Hands and Feet is the band he started, British Country Rock.

Gillian Welch is in the book, however we've all heard her before, in the first link of this thread. Here she is at St Lukes in London, full concert.

One group I will not post. The Shaggs were used in the book as a bridge to another family group started because a parent got them some instruments. Rolling Stone said they sounded like lobotomized Von Trapp family singers. The Shaggs were sisters that couldn't sing or play, but a parent bought them instruments to keep them out of trouble. One comment on youtube thought their cat was being tortured.

Rawlings is a hell of a guitarist, and their harmonies are mirror images. She has been playing with him from the beginning, out of Boston's Berklee Music Conservatory where she met him.

Good stuff from the subculture (at the time) of Amerika but did it change the music scene? Specifically what did it add to the rock/pop composition lexicon? Lou Reed's excellent piece is drawn wholly from within the American experience and it was in a musical tradition predating him by many others, but musically it did not draw from any outside influences.

With little effort one can easily discern this beats measure in later pieces that were written within the rock genre:
