And then theres Peter , Paul and Mary

Absolute Classic

Puff the Magic Dragon..   And No it has nothing to do with bad stuff..  <*< despite what may be said.

There is an absolute classic version where they go to show that any song can be misinterpreted, in this case they showed how the American national Anthem could also have 2 meanings.. Just cant find it on tube at the moment. Amazing that they were still singing this to packed out shows up to the 90's until Mary Died.

Hello Pop Pickers

Not everyone likes this thread but Justin Townes Earle has a solution-  'Look the Other Way'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WF6xMpHlgEk

I thought Eric Clapton made a mess of this next song live so I thought I'd opt for Billy Holiday's superior live version of  'Tain't Nobody's Business '

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.

You have gone to lot's of trouble to try and make us all look like fools. I have read all of it, indeed, as most might have bothered to do, and no-one will of course expand (will they - thankyou).

If you have a gripe, don't take it out on participating members please... go to "the Boss".... viz... MARTIN.

Mr Adross, is there something the matter with you? you are now being very silly, If you do not like this thread, then I suggest you do not look at it. Far more people enjoy this thread than do disapprove of it so I suggest you get a life and stop trying to provoke an argument. Incidentally, there are many other threads that are not related to model boats, ie 'In the news", ' Mayhem film club' 'humor' to name a few. Are you saying that these are a waste of server space as well?

Although I do periodically contribute to this thread I do feel that at times it does swamp the board, maybe just an couple of post here and there .

Well, it is rather irritating to those of us who log in to see the latest posts....

I would have thought there are other more suitable websites on which to indulge in musical nostalgia.

Dear Colin,

You of all people I did not expcect to hear...I am a touch surprised actually.

Have a gripe, go to Martin.

Maybe the next contender will get not such a nice reply... and, Moderators, don't blame me when I let loose next time. Because, I won't.

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?.
