Dobby, you have some old tastes there. :) Ritchie Blackmore and Deep Purple were always favorites. I really liked their Royal Albert Hall recording so was a big Purple fan. The 1st Movement off that collection featured a monocle-popping 3 and a half minute raunchy solo by Blackmore that I'd have given a lot to see live. Man on The Silver Mountain was always my favorite post-Purple piece, though. Great number. Probably my favorite Ronny James Dio song as well.

I liked all your tunes. Suite Madame Blue by Styx was always a cool progressive number with a great climax. The Progressive Era affected even pop groups like Styx.

Can't say enough about Terry Kath. Best part of Chicago, to be sure. They were never the same after he died. 1975 or 76. I still love all his singing. Brand New Love Affair from 8. An Hour in the Shower from 3 was the best track on that weak album. Now That You've Gone from 5. And of course the classics Make Me Smile and Colour My World from 2 with the most wistful singing of just about anyone. He was a great soulful guitar player as well, of course. Your live video of him improvising on 25 or 6 to 4 was interesting. His was always a warm guitar sound.

UFO was always an above average band. I liked Too Hot To Handle off the same album as Lights Out. You can hear how these guys were children of the war in the Lights Out title and lyrics, can't you?

The 1998 tune is a bit out of place among the other choices but a decent number.

Then, you wrap up with Frankenstein. Wow. That video is cool to see how the boys looked like and how they played that great song, but it is a sad thing to play any lesser version of that song than the original studio version that's always played on the radio. The nuances don't often come through on live recordings for anyone. And that one has a lot of subtleties.

Great songs. You and I are on the same track [pun intended] there musically. :)

Fks, I have heard that song before. I did not know it was by your man xxx. That is a great song and now makes him passing a little personal to me. He truly was a talented artist. 

 

LM,

I found Damien O'Kane. This guy makes me like the banjo.

Terry Kath was the driving force in Chicago.  Here's a link to the start of Make Me Smile. https://youtu.be/_oAoSZ2y1cw?t=1h10m3s  They really put on a great show.  Terry had a smooth, deep rich voice.  Very powerful.  Very soulful.  The entire concert was very entertaining.  

 

Here's a documentary of Richie Blackmore.  It's worth watching when you have some free time.  I wish Rainbow with Graham Bonnet and Cozy Powell would have stayed together longer.  I want to hear more rock songs like: https://www.youtube....?v=EjDTq25XsH8 

Graham Bonnet did an interesting interview at this link.  It's nice learning the history of these bands.

 

It's really hard to find great or even very good rock songs after 2000.  Most songs today don't have that rock/blues or soul sound. There's just something missing.  I'll try posting some rock songs from the last 18 years that I think sound pretty good.

 

I don't have a banjo song, but how about a Ukulele Queen performance.  Youtube is great.

The link was great. Thanks. Only that wasn't the first part of Make Me Smile but the entire thing. The entire song off 2 is something like 20 minutes long. (Thank you Progressive Era! :)) The ending of the song that everyone is used to hearing on the radio comes much later.* In fact, the song Colour My World, which is famous in it's own right, is actually completely embedded within Make Me Smile. Strange fact but true.

*It was probably the best shortening/edit of a song in the Progressive Era where record companies were always cutting down time lengths. No one today can probably remember the shortened airplay versions of songs in those days. Some famous songs that were cut down up to 50% in time included Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin, Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Do You Feel Like We Do? by Peter Frampton.

You should check out his other songs. They are out of this world.

Paddy Kerr's rhythms are a bit strange at first, but still an amazing bouzouki player, and no one can make a whistle or flute sing like McGoldrick does.

Post Malone escaped a near fatal accident yesterday so I figured I would  give him a little more exposure ! :)

This one is a great old tune. The new version is not bad either ! Elton J, Logic, Pink

Love Blondie Napo great choice ya second video is not on YouTube it appears. Third one is classic ! I do wonder about Jr's taste. My own minions are not fans of the oldies. They do try and keep me in the loop about some of the newer stuff along with some of our fellow Forum members ! :)

Hello from Spain. In my opinion, Iron Maiden on the one hand, and European power/speed metal are the best music we can listen to.

Hi guys,

if you want to hear some good stuff you should listen to King Crimson. The group has had many different line ups. All of these have produced good music. My favorite album is 'In the Court of the Crimson King'. In my opinion there has never been a better debut album. It is very old, from 1969 but it was far ahead of its time. Lead singer then was Greg Lake, later co founder of Emerson Lake and Palmer. Yes is of course also very good, Close to the Edge my favorite album. It may be old music but it is lots better than some of the crap on the radio these days.

Mog
