The Music we love
« on: October 03, 2021, 07:38:29 pm »

A lot of us are getting a bit long in the tooth now but we were privileged in growing up at a time when the best music was made – anyone disagree?

So how about sharing some of our favourite music and performers, many of whom are still going strong. As Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues said, ‘Sixties stars were born to last’.

It doesn’t have to be original performances, just some of the best which can be quite recent as recent recordings can reflect growing older.

I love watching these performances.

To kick off:

Roger McGuinn of the Byrds.

We all grew up with Hank Marvin  O0 ......I had watched  %)  each of those videos over the years Mr Bishop, with the exception of Neil & Wife Peggy's rendition of 4 Strong Winds.....I believe the Bishop household would radiate an excellent, yet diverse taste in music  :-))


[The Shadows played as series of large Licenced Club Concerts in Australia maybe 40 years ago.......toward the end of one performance Hank asked for a request.........I stood & yelled out.......bet ya can't remember Tails of a Raggy Tram Line? - Hanks response was what's the bet?......& naturally they played it] .....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZuVcHE6Db4

However I do also like Moonlight Sonata in G Minor by Mr Ludwig Beeethoven

You Tube links? I should have made myself clearer, I was asking for links to performances that can be viewed online rather than just listing our favourites.

Years ago Eric Clapton used to come down to the Chiddingfold Village Hall (Surrey) at Christmas to support a local charity. He would often be supported by Andy Fairweather Low with Henry Spinetti on drums. It was organised by Gary Booker of Procol Harum who always perforned 'A Whiter Shade of Pale.' They all just mingled in the bar afterwards. Mrs B & I used to be given tickets via a friend.

Here's another: Strawbs live in the Bedrock TV series in 1990. 'Grace Darling' at 17:10 is a zinger with Brian Willougby's solos.

This can be a bit tricky for me to pinpoint as such. Being born in the mid sixties, a mere fledgling in the seventies and a teenage rebel in the eighties my musical tastes were often influenced by what the family were listening to. My parents would listen to Glenn Miller/swing, Rock and Roll in particular Bill Haley, Elvis Presley etc, whilst my eldest brother would be banging out tunes from the Glam rockers such as Mud, Sweet, Bowie, Queen and Suzie Quattro. Then my middle brother was head banging to AC/DC, Whitesnake, Black Sabbath etc. Then add in my 'growing up'  music of the eighties with Adam ant, Duran Duran, Spandau etc it's obvious the house was filled with music of different genres almost all at the same time!


So now, for me at my time of my life I listen to almost anything apart from the rubbish that is churned out today (the majority of it is tosh but sometimes something good gets made but not often!)


Here's a sample of my musical choice.
Elvis Presley
Johnny Cash
Rock and Roll
Rock a billy
Northern Soul
Beatles
The Who
Queen
The Jam
Anything 60's 70's 80's
Glenn Miller/swing
Anne Shelton
Doris Day
Old time country and western
New/modern country (search the Petersens.......awesome harmonies from one family)
Vivaldi
Military band music.
Eagles


I have an eclectic music collection and as I'm trying to learn to play the ukulele other music choices and likes get unearthed!!

Just search for the artist name and track.  You don't need to find YouTube, it will find you.  It will also suggest a lot of stuff that you are glad to be reminded of, as well as some that is maybe best left in the corner with a blanket over it.
Anybody else remember Lord Rockingham's Eleven?

Sadly, my best memories of the music I still love pre-date what's around on youtube, or at least I've not been able to find them. I didn't include Freddie and the Dreamers or Tiny Tim. They were aberrations but the tickets were free!

The Who and Hendrix at the Orchid Ballroom in Purley; Segovia, Brubeck and Basie at The Fairfield Halls. This is the same Brubeck lineup as Fairfield but filmed in Brussels. I'll always remember Eugene Wright unscrewing the bass strings down to just as low as he could get and all tension had gone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6YENGfOG1w

That said, the only one I found that I saw in 1969 was this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwl0Et7RdlM

I spend considerably more time playing music than I do making or sailing models. I have been playing bass guitar for over 45 years, and still play regular gigs, the most recent being last weekend. My musical tastes are mainly blues (both old acoustic songs and the likes of Hendrix, SRV, Allman Brothers, and the Grateful Dead.

I played in a Grateful Dead tribute band until a got tired of the driving (I live near Oxford, the band rehearsed in Leicester) but the gigs were great - even headlined a three day festival in Germany (very long drive!). I still play the Dead but in a less ambitious local band, and it is great fun.

My heart is still in the blues, especially improvisational electric blues.


No links as my computer has turned itself against you tube, not sure why.


Shame, as I do speak Finnish and would have enjoyed the Polka posted above.

My taste in music is very wide ranging, though I can't really listen to jazz.

Also, I'm not into full opera but I do like to listen / watch the Arias.
Here's a couple of links to a young girl singing 0 Mio Babbino Caro (only 9yr old at the time)

...and The Flower Duet (15 yr old on this one)

Absolutely stunning voice!

Just spent the afternoon (birthday treat) at Dorking Halls listening to the Glen Miller Orchestra, They were fantastic . Thought I was going to see an iffy tribute band but not a bit of it . The sound of all that brass and percussion was moving,  forgotten what a really good live band can be like . Assume they are on tour , if they come your way and the big band sound is your bag, grab some

Probably not to everyone's taste (my taste in music has always been "different") but I travelled all the way to Dresden just to see Mono Inc (the show in the link). I have also seen them a few times at the M'era Luna Festival. Now I get to finally see them in the UK as they are playing in Bristol May 2022.

If you happen to listen to Radio 3 on BBC Sounds, Essential Classics from yesterday (Wed) had as it's final track this..............
Hector Berlioz/Claude‐Joseph Rouget de l’Isle
La Marseillaise
I don't think I've ever heard such a blast of sheer patriotism given such grandeur. You'd wonder why the French ever lose at anything. O0

Surprising what can be achieved with so few notes. Music is the only global language. nemesis
