Dear Kenny,

You see, I was wondering about music to other Topics, and I could see a poss. problem with this, so, I thought, maybe a seperate Topic might be appropriate. May I ask you to please take control of this please, so to ensure we all work on the straight and narrow :-))

Well I have to say in the 70s Freebird was, and still is, probably my own most hated piece of self indulgent pretentious overlong repetive boring drivel.  I used to have a habit of walking past the Juke Box in the Mighty Fine and kicking it when it was on hoping to make it skip to the end.  Not that there ever seemed to be an end.  It droned on and on for ever so it seemed.  But each to their own.     But no argument about anything by Nazareth or Cozy Powell

apologies neil and hawkeye.  Not meant that post to sound 'not nice' just describing my dislike of the song.  But I did try to recognise that this was just my opinion by adding each to their own.  So no offence was intended.  I recognise that much of musical 'taste' is not to many many others music for pleasure as they see it - and as my wife has pointed out to me all the time over the last 30 years!!.

Mike Oldfield, Genius, he created brilliance and made it better. (saw this quote, thought it summed it up.)


Apparently he was never fully happy with TB 1!! and this is how he wanted it to sound, (Fact or fiction I have no idea ) I can live with both versions.

Dear BobK,

I had forgotten how good this track is/was. You have blown the wind out of my sails, and I am going away to listen and think. WoW, it really was/is very very good!

Regards, Bernard

p.s. While I go away and ask for a Purchase Order number from a Co. who said name your price, so I am in a very good mood since I know - as they do - that whatever I ask will be acceptable... mind you, not often this occurs... but always nice when does.

Dear Knoby,

Whilst a 'passty' I suppose, I can only put this up as one of the best examples of the best Classic example of what you put up. It is a great, and I have had the privialedge of been alongside an Organist at Winchester Cathedral playing just this some time ago on request(and elsewhere when I was very much younger (I still have my RSCM tie - I have sung at Winchester, St Pauls, and various others (1965 - 73), and done a bit with musicals at that time, but all this rather a long time ago!), so, one way and another, I have a wide and varied liking of music, and I can still make my voice heard at Weddings and Funerals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know, when I think about it now, all in all, I have 'done a bit' one way and another, but this bit I had forgotten a touch.

Regards, Bernard

It is after all way off-Mayhem Topic, and all I hope have had a bit of fun with it, but, as a flash in the pan, the Topic will probably quickly become a bit of 'clutter', so maybe best to finish it in a day or two?

Dear Kenny,

I am pleased you are satisfied to let it run. Since it is a non boat Topic, may I ask if you would take control of it please... proper procedure for an off-Mayhem Topic I feel. You and or other Mods. can thus easily and quickly decide it's future at any time, with everybody knowing the score, and no-one will be offended if the Topic should dissapear.

Regards, Bernard


Thank you Bernard, I've never seen a thread run so fast.  Methinks the members approve.

I don't mind stretching the time scale downwards to the 60's as I seem to have better memories of that period.    8)

   Like wot I did with the Shadow's.     ok2

Cheers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzF0AETdRF8


Yes I did like that one.  Saw them quite a few times in the 70s at some great gis but then the magic sort of died a little when Wilko left.  Saw them a couple of years or so back without any original members after Lee's sad passing.  They were on a joint bill with John Otway but it wasnt them at all just a band trading on the name.  But at least Otway was a brilliant as ever.  And still is.  Still treading the boards and still a brilliant gig to go to.

  there are so many good groups and musicians out there its hard to pick the best. My favourites include the Canadian group the " Guess Who" out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. They are fronted by Burton Cummings (key board, flute, vocals) and Randy Bachmann (lead guitarist extraordinaire).
  From their list I've picked their theme song from 170, "American Woman"

For those not familar with this much loved but often overlooked treasure and genius of British Music, he can be caught up with in Bristol this Saturday with Wild Willy, and his Blockbuster Movie Otway The Movie has its World Premier at the Leicester Square Odeon on 7th October.  Both his biographies were classic best sellers, (the first topped the non fiction charts believe it or not) and hopefully the movie will also be a classic.

Yes, within a few recent Posts I have not, but I have gone to pains otherwise to do so. Re Nick's replies I haven't since there directly obvious, but not necessarily to others O0 :-)

Ok, Battleships etc. was not very clear, but unfortunately I do not know the titles to the first Track, and I would be very grateful if someone could advise please :-)) As I said, the second part I do know, but I am at a loss re the first bit, and I would very much like to know what it is.

So, Dave, and going the long way around the Barn, indeedy so, and quite right that you remind :-)) This Topic can easily go just as quickly as it started... it is run by a Moderator so.......... just because I started it means absolutely nothing {-)

Longbuild, see you still here... I must be honest with you, been driving a friends 22 tonne 360deg. JCB all day for 10 hrs., and it always sends me on a high at the end of the day... sad isn't it! I do it for enjoyment, he will pay me what he will as-&-when (I have my own businesses that make far more), but, this small 'let-out' is as good as a holiday for me, and it always leaves me feeling very good!!!!!! LOL!!! Been a very very good day, and makes music even better..., and I took these CD's with me today for the first time, and knocking hell out of rock with parts of it was greatn funnnnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All in all, a very good day one way and another... even better with only the responsibility of only driving!!!!!!!!!!! Regards, Bernard

Dear Longbuild,

After short though, must add, that, my forte is 1.5t to 3.5t. machines - and I can better any of my drivers any day - but, with bigger, and whilst I will not attempt some exercises that other big machine drivers will do, I can be a touch more precise..... knowing small machines very well this last fifteen years hones this.....

So, you expect a miracle indeed... a determined entry... an entry both pertinent and challenging... one that matches my previous 'run'.... straight forward...... and quick in return...........  :D

After all, I have just this moment committed myself to sponsoring a Colt - if yet yet another appears - if so it will be the fifth in a row from 'our dear Mango' who you have all 'herd' of/about and seen on here previously (moved on to other Pastures/mares a few weeks ago). So what else challenges you profer are quite simple really.......... oh my G O D........... {:-{ %% {-) What have I done %) %% :D

B.

Right, while I am thinking about Music (the least I can say to keep this Post on Topic!), who would like to Sub-Sponsor and 'Future' a Welsh Mountain Pony Colt if it turns up?????? It could be worth £1000's bear in mind........ "this time next year we could all be millionaires"!!! :-)) Only cost you a couple of Tuns - guarantee I will match your investment......... so bargain. Lovely Jubley! Make Hay while Sun shines indeedy so! Who Dares get's the Beefy......! Bargain eh... hold on, offers running over supply... be quick.....................!

Dear Stavros,

I have to say I agree with you.

I have gone to all endeavor to make sure that the 'authorities' know my feelings. Indeed, I sent an email to a Mod. this aft. to say maybe it's time to call it a day. Whilst Mods. can delete this Topic as they see fit, it seems, that, whilst there are many people watching, the consensus is to keep with the status quo.

As I prev. said, I am surprised the Topic has continued, but/and, while it seems popular, maybe we just have to run with it?

Dear All, please don't make an issue out of it.... it just ain't worthwhile.

Not trying to prove any points at all, or prove any scores in any way whatsoever, I have done very silly things on here in the past, and have been quite correctly told off very very quickly. They will not be repeated. Not that I have learned, but I just know what the score is. And that's that.

Hawkeye. Baker St., umm., this for me on the one hand is one of the most excellent Tracks, but, on the other hand is one of the sadest. I will not explain. At the end of the day, I remember being on a geophysics survey at Gairloch, and being in charge, and under extreme pressure tp complete, played this high vol. for all from the Range Rover stereo to keep us all going. This event was a learning curve for me... it proved what staff really can do.... not what I did for them, but what they did for the cause... a real cause. I will not elaborate unless pushed. This Track is very very good. Thankyou :-))

Age and wealth gives certain privilege, and one of these things is that you learn that you don't give a d a m n what people think, or/and if someone compromises, one has the armour to defeat d a m n near anything! I have never forgotten this dangerous saying, told me by a wise, old, and now deceased mining consultant - his name...Paul Sawyer - MIMM... and I am a Comp. IMM - right - NEVER GET MAD GET EVEN. Runs true always, and has always done well enough for me, so. My, it's raining here! You see Nipper, we are all equal on here one way and another! What else! B.

Nick,

Whilst the link to YouTube may be interesting to some, there is so much more that you should do when adding these links for the benefit of all Model Boat Mayhem-users who may not be familiar with the music of your chosen artist, and can not be conveyed by the provision of just a video link.
With this in mind, I have copied some information (from Wikipedia, in this instance), so that everyone, including those with limited access or that may not be 'internet savvy', can quiclkly reference the featured artist, before considering whether to get involved in this popular Chit-Chat topic (if so desired) with debate & discussion about your appreciation of the chosen subject of your post.


Ry Cooder:
 
Ryland Peter "Ry" Cooder (born March 15, 1947)[1] is an American guitarist, singer and composer. He is known for his slide guitar work, his interest in roots music from the United States, and, more recently, his collaborations with traditional musicians from many countries.

Ry Cooder grew up in Santa Monica, California and attended Santa Monica High School.

His solo work has been eclectic, encompassing folk, blues, Tex-Mex, soul, gospel, rock, and much else. He has collaborated with many musicians, including Larry Blackmon, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Randy Newman, Earl Hines, Little Feat, Captain Beefheart, The Doobie Brothers, The Chieftains, John Lee Hooker, Pops and Mavis Staples, Flaco Jiménez, Ibrahim Ferrer, Freddy Fender, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and Ali Farka Touré. He formed the band Little Village with Nick Lowe, John Hiatt, and Jim Keltner.

Ry Cooder produced the Buena Vista Social Club album (1997), which became a worldwide hit. Wim Wenders directed the documentary film of the same name (1999), which was nominated for an Academy Award in 2000.

He was ranked eighth on Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".[2] A 2010 ranking by Gibson placed him at number 32.[3]

[edit] Career[edit] 1960sDuring the 1960s, Cooder briefly attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon.[4] Cooder first attracted attention in the 1960s, playing with Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, after previously having worked with Taj Mahal and Ed Cassidy in the Rising Sons. He also played with Randy Newman at this time, including on 12 Songs.[5] Van Dyke Parks worked with Newman and Cooder during the 1960s. Parks arranged Cooder's "One Meatball" according to Parks' 1984 interview by Bob Claster.

Cooder was a session musician on various recording sessions with the The Rolling Stones in 1968 and 1969, and his contributions appear on the albums Let It Bleed (mandolin on "Love in Vain"), and Sticky Fingers, on which he contributed the slide guitar on "Sister Morphine". During this period, Cooder joined with Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and longtime Rolling Stones sideman Nicky Hopkins to record Jamming with Edward! Cooder also played slide guitar for the 1970 film soundtrack Performance, which contained Jagger's first solo single, "Memo from Turner". The 1975 compilation album Metamorphosis features an uncredited Cooder contribution on Bill Wyman's "Downtown Suzie."

Ry Cooder also collaborated with Lowell George of Little Feat, playing slide guitar on the original version of "Willin'".[6]

[edit] 1970sThroughout the 1970s, Cooder released a series of Warner Bros. Records albums that showcased his guitar work. Cooder explored bygone musical genres and found old-time recordings which he then personalized and updated. Thus, on his breakthrough album, Into the Purple Valley, he chose unusual instrumentations and arrangements of blues, gospel, calypso, and country songs (giving a tempo change to the cowboy ballad "Billy the Kid"). The album opened with the song "How Can You Keep on Moving (Unless You Migrate Too)" by Agnes "Sis" Cunningham about the Okies who were not welcomed when they migrated west to escape the Dust Bowl in the 1930s – to which Cooder gave a rousing-yet-satirical march accompaniment. His later 1970s albums (with the exception of Jazz, which explored ragtime/vaudeville) do not fall under a single genre description, but his self-titled first album could be described as blues; Into the Purple Valley, Boomer's Story, and Paradise and Lunch as folk and blues; Chicken Skin Music and Showtime as a mix of Tex-Mex and Hawaiian; Bop Till You Drop as 1950s' R&B; and Borderline and Get Rhythm as rock-based. His 1979 album Bop Till You Drop was the first popular music album to be recorded digitally. It yielded his biggest hit, an R&B cover version of Elvis Presley's 1960s recording "Little Sister". Cooder is credited on Van Morrison's 1979 album, Into the Music, for slide guitar on the song "Full Force Gale". He also played guitar on Judy Collins' 1970 concert tour, and is featured on Living, the 1971 live album recorded during that tour.

[edit] 1980sCooder has worked as a studio musician and has also scored many film soundtracks including Wim Wenders film Paris, Texas (1984). Cooder based this soundtrack and title song "Paris, Texas" on Blind Willie Johnson's "Dark Was the Night (Cold Was the Ground)", which he described as "The most soulful, transcendent piece in all American music."[7] Musician Dave Grohl has declared Cooder's score for Paris, Texas is one of his favorite albums.[8]

"Dark Was the Night (Cold Was the Ground)" was also the basis for Cooder's song "Powis Square" for the movie Performance. His other film work includes Walter Hill's The Long Riders (1980), Southern Comfort (1981), Brewster's Millions (1985), Johnny Handsome[9], Last Man Standing (1996), Hill's Trespass (1992) and Mike Nichols' Primary Colors (1998). Cooder dubbed all slide guitar parts in the 1986 film Crossroads, a take on blues legend Robert Johnson. In 1988, Cooder produced the album by his longtime backing vocalists Bobby King and Terry Evans on Rounder Records titled Live and Let Live. He contributed his slide guitar work to every track. He also plays extensively on their 1990 self-produced Rounder release Rhythm, Blues, Soul & Grooves. Cooder's music also appeared on two episodes of the television program "Tales From the Crypt" – "The Man Who Was Death" and "The Thing From the Grave" <http://www.allmusic.com/album/original-music-from-tales-from-the-crypt-w93724>.

In 1984 Ry played on 2 songs on the debut album by Carla Olson & the Textones "Midnight Mission" - Carla's Number One Is To Survive and the preiously unreleased Bob Dylan song Clean Cut Kid. Shortly thereafter he was writing and recording the music for the film "Blue City" and asked the band to appear in the film performing. (He took them in the studio and produced "You Can Run" which he also played on.)

Also in 1988 he produced and featured in the Les Blank directed concert documentary film Ry Cooder & The Moula Banda Rhythm Aces: Let's Have a Ball where he plays in collaboration with a selection of musicians famous in their various musical fields.[10] The following year, he played a janitor in the Jim Henson series The Ghost of Faffner Hall, in the episode "Music Is More Than Technique".[11][12]

[edit] 1990sIn the early 1990s Cooder collaborated on two world music "crossover" albums, which blended the traditional American musical genres that Cooder has championed throughout his career with the contemporary improvised music of India and Africa. For A Meeting by the River (1993), which also featured his son Joachim on percussion, he teamed with Hindustani classical musician V.M. Bhatt, a virtuoso of the Mohan Veena, a modified 20-string archtop guitar of Bhatt's own invention. In 1995 he teamed with African multi-instrumentalist Ali Farka Toure on the album Talking Timbuktu, which he also produced; the album also featured longtime Cooder collaborator Jim Keltner on drums, veteran blues guitarist Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, jazz bassist John Patitucci and African percussionists and musicians including Hamma Sankare and Oumar Toure. Both albums won the Grammy Award for 'Best World Music Album' in 1994 and 1995 respectively. Cooder also worked with Tuvan throat singers for the score to the 1993 film Geronimo: An American Legend.

In 1995 he performed in The Wizard of Oz in Concert: Dreams Come True, a musical performance of the popular story at the Lincoln Center in New York to benefit the Children's Defense Fund. The performance was originally broadcast on Turner Network Television (TNT), and was issued on CD and video in 1996.

In the late 1990s Cooder played a significant role in the increased appreciation of traditional Cuban music, due to his collaboration as producer of the Buena Vista Social Club (1997) recording, which became a worldwide hit and revived the careers of some of the greatest surviving exponents of 20th century Cuban music. Wim Wenders, who had previously directed 1984's Paris Texas, directed a documentary film of the musicians involved, Buena Vista Social Club (1999), which was nominated for an Academy Award in 2000.[13]

[edit] 2000sCooder's 2005 album Chávez Ravine was touted by his record label as being "a post-World War II-era American narrative of 'cool cats', radios, UFO sightings, J. Edgar Hoover, red scares, and baseball"[14]— the record is a tribute to the long-gone Los Angeles Latino enclave known as Chávez Ravine. Using real and imagined historical characters, Cooder and friends created an album that recollects various aspects of the poor but vibrant hillside Chicano community which no longer exists. Cooder says, "Here is some music for a place you don’t know, up a road you don’t go. Chávez Ravine, where the sidewalk ends."[14] Drawing from the various musical strains of Los Angeles, including conjunto, R&B, Latin pop, and jazz, Cooder and friends conjure the ghosts of Chávez Ravine and Los Angeles at mid-century. On this fifteen-track album, sung in Spanish and English, Cooder is joined by East L.A. legends like Chicano music patriarch Lalo Guerrero, Pachuco boogie king Don Tosti, Thee Midniters front man Little Willie G, and Ersi Arvizu, of The Sisters and El Chicano.

Cooder's next record was released in 2007. Entitled My Name Is Buddy, it tells the story of Buddy Red Cat, who travels and sees the world in the company of his like-minded friends, Lefty Mouse and Rev. Tom Toad. The entire recording is a parable of the working class progressivism[15] of the first half of the American twentieth century, and even has a song featuring executed unionist Joe Hill. My Name Is Buddy was accompanied by a booklet featuring a story and illustration (by Vincent Valdez) for each track, providing additional context to Buddy's adventures.

Cooder produced and performed on an album for Mavis Staples entitled We'll Never Turn Back, which was released on April 24, 2007. The concept album focused on Gospel songs of the civil rights movement and also included two new original songs by Cooder.[16]

Ry Cooder's album I, Flathead was released on June 24, 2008. It is the completion of his California trilogy. Based on the drag racing culture of the early 1960s, the album is set on the desert salt flats in southern California. The disc was also released as a deluxe edition with stories written by Cooder to accompany the music.

In late 2009, Cooder toured Japan, New Zealand and Australia with Nick Lowe, performing some of Lowe's songs and a selection of Cooder's own material, mainly from the 1970s. Joaquim Cooder (Ry's son) provided percussion, and Juliette Commagere and Alex Lilly contributed backing vocals.

The song "Diaraby", which Cooder recorded with Ali Farka Touré, is used as the theme to The World's Geo Quiz. The World is a radio show distributed by Public Radio International.

In 2009, Cooder performed in The People Speak, a documentary feature film that uses dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries, and speeches of everyday Americans, based on historian Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. Cooder performed with Bob Dylan and Van Dyke Parks on the documentary broadcast on December 13, 2009 on the History Channel. They played "Do Re Mi" and reportedly a couple of other Guthrie songs that were excluded from the final edit. He also traveled with the band Los Tigres del Norte and recorded the 2010 album San Patricio with the Chieftains, Lila Downs, Liam Neeson, Linda Ronstadt, Van Dyke Parks, Los Cenzontles, and Los Tigres.[17][18]

[edit] 2010sIn June 2010, responding to the passage of Arizona SB 1070, he released the single "Quicksand", which tells the story of Mexicans attempting to emigrate to Arizona through the desert.[19][20] Cooder's critically acclaimed[21][22] new album Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down, released on August 30, 2011, contains politically charged songs such as "No Banker Left Behind"[23] which was inspired by a Robert Scheer column.[24]

In 2011, he published a collection of short stories called Los Angeles Stories, written about people living in Los Angeles in the 1940s and 1950s. With story titles such as "La vida es un sueño" and "Kill me, por favor", the book has a Hispanic theme and deals partially with Latinos living in Los Angeles during this time.

An American Songwriter article in 2012 suggested that Cooder's recent string of solo albums have often taken on an allegorical, sociopolitical bent. Music journalist Evan Schlansky said that "Cooder’s latest effort, Election Special (due August 21 on Nonesuch/Perro Verde) doesn’t mince words. It’s designed to send a message to the “'deacons in the High Church of the Next Dollar'.”[25] He also composed a full album (Election special) as his own part of support to the Democratic Party and its president Barack Obama in the 2012 American Presidential Election.

Because
A. No one will read it
b . If I want to find something out I will Google it as you have.
C If not intrested in the thread, I move on and ignore..

Exactly! So when a single person is doing nothing other than adding YouTube link after YouTube link after YouTube, ad infinitum, the 'Recent Posts' list gets overwhelmed and late-night UK/European users and all the users in time-zones that are further away are denied the opportunity to see and/or contribute to the primarily boat-related posts that were generated throughtout the day (UK time).
Consequently all those Tips, Appeals for assistance, Advice, Sales, Wants, etc, etc, wiped off, and we/the site suffers as a whole because, (to para-phrase):
A. No one will read it
B. If I want to find something out, I will Google it as you have.
C. It is of no interest to the target-audience, who move on and ignore..

I welcome users starting alternate topics, but I do not understand the point in 1) placing endless links to an entirely different, freely available video-site, and 2) The logic of any user placing a series of continuous posts (en block) when no-one else is interacting in that thread. It would be understandable if it were a model-boat build-thread, but it's not, someone is just tuning into music videos and playing with themselves.
I've even wonder if this this inconsiderate behaviour is intentional because I can't fathom the logic of bumping all the other thread repliests off the 'Recent Posts' list with nothing more than a monotonous list of YouTube links?.

Dear Nick,

As you know , a couple of nights ago, I asked several reasonable questions about the point of this thread and also asked to consider the effect it had on the site as a whole. Your response above, gives the impression that the exchange didn't occur. However, if and when they come back, everyone will see through your reply above, and that both you and your playmate were more than unreasonable. In the case of 'polaris', they will also see that he was arrogant, offensive and issued a veiled threat, which is very easy when your spineless, anonymous and hidden. However, it has been reported through the proper channels.

To be honest I think the whole tenor of this topic is seriously weird. As Adross says, most of us tune into Mayhem for Model Boating topics and it is seriously clogging up the most recent posts list. I wouldn't dream of using Mayhem to publicise my musical interests, or indeed any other non boating interests, and am a loss to understand why others should wish to do so.

 Anyway, I posted that although this is a very popular topic, I think it run it's course here on Mayhem
and is now is tending to flood the 'most recent post' feature. So I've decided to it run until the weekend
then lock it down.

Hope you understand.    :-)

Good for you Martin was getting fed up with all the latest topic section full up with Bernards musical choices and no boats.

This topic has now run it's course for now. Topic locked!

.... We may open it again for a few days over the silly season.   :-)
