A friend recently loaned me a copy of Monsters of Folk.  The more I listen, the more awesome I think it is.

Maybe I'll give them another shot.  I heard some of it, butonly once.

I saw Robt Earl Keen at the Ryman over the weekend.  He put on a good show and did a collection of songs from the earfly days tol recent stuff.

Neil Young & Bert Jansch playing there June 1 & 2.

They may not be suited to everyone's taste, but like I said, the more I listened, the better I liked. 

Neil Young resides on Mt. Olympus, as far as I'm concerned...

I agree with you Bushie.  I'd love to see them both but not at $100 a ticket.  Oh, and as far as Mt Olympus, Neil lives in a neighborhood, and Bert Jansch is his neighbor there.  I like the analogy, Bushie.

I understand Mary Gauthier has a new album out soon.  Are you familiar with her?

Gill Landry, now a member of Old crow Medicine Show, also has a solo album coming out that I am really looking forward to hearing.  His first album was my album of the year in 2008.

I just bought the new Peter Wolf album, Midnight Reflections.  Peter was a member of the J Geils Band, lead singer.  This new album is all original songs which he wrote or co-wrote and tends to have a country flavor with.  He does duets with Shelby Lynne, Merle Haggard, and a few others.
Midnight Reflections, checkit out.

I've been really enjoying The Cricket's Orchestra by Meaghan Smith. It's from 2008, but it puts me in mind of songs from Tin Pan Alley.

Just downloaded Jeff Beck's Emotion and Commotion. Beck keeps getting better and better. This is a very tasty set of recordings with some guest singers (Joss Stone sings 'I put a spell on you', the old Screaming J-Hawkins tune).

I just picked up a couple of Adam and The Ants CDs from the 80's.  It's fun music!

Andrea, aren't you about 25 years late for Adam and the Ants.  I remember an interview with him where he said he could write a song in less than 10 minutes.

Yah carlton pierre - it's just a fun blast from the past and makes good workout music!  I still like many 80's bands.

 Jeff Beck is amazing - his "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"  on the Emotion and Commotion CD will make you want to cry.

I've not heard Emotion & Commotion, but my hunch is the song you're referring to is one of Beck's trademark instrumentals that just evoke tears and sadness.  he's one of the best at that.

Knoxville has a really great music scene.  We are blessed with a plethora of venues and festivals, etc.  Music of all types.  Last night I went to a monthly concert series we have called Tennessee Shines.  www.tennesseeshines.com

Concert is always hosted by Jim Lauderdale and last night he played 2 songs, and next month he is featured as he has a wonderful new album coming out in about 2 weeks.
First group was an interesting blend of banjo, drums, guitar, bass, and a guy who played everything from trumpet, to french horn, to recorder, to even playing a saw with a violin bow.  They were called Frontier Ruckus.
Next, a singer songwriter with an interesting voice named Matt Urmy.  Followed by my favorite, Mary Gauthier.  Her new album, The Foundling, is amazing.  It'll be out in 2 weeks.
2nd half of the show was a duo called Paleface.  A guy onacoustic guitar and his girlfriend who sang and played drums.  Last act was rockabilly greats Southern Culture on the Skids.
A great show and a fun evening.

I've been exploring the world of acapella choruses.  Ben Folds just put out an album of college a capella groups but there are lots of these that do everything from barbershop style to pop music to church music.  I love hearing how all the groups make the bass and drum sounds.,

I got this from the library and didn't know how wondefful it was til I got home.  4 cd set titles "Love Is The Song We Sing"- Sanfrancisco Nuggets  1965-1970.  Tons of great music some of which has not been played before and it's more like an encyclopedia.  Lots of great photos, song by song descriptions, etc.  I wish I owned it.
Music is mostly psychadelic, Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger service, but also Sons of Champlin,Moby Grape, Youngbloods, and a host of others.

O.K., you said recently acquired not recently recorded.  I just acquired the CD Bing Crosby - The Definitive Collection.  While I enjoyed it, it did remind me of something I once read.  It was that Bing Crosby was the world's best selling singer, but he mostly retired when Frank Sinatra hit it big with his more natural style of singing.

When we think of Bing Crosby we think of White Christmas or a sort of Perry Como easy style of singing.  It's not easy singing, he's all over the place.  It's not bad, it does show of his ability, but it sounds a little strange by modern standards.

Beauty is in the eyes (or ears) of the beholder.  Some like crooners, some like country, some like rap, some love drums (moi).  We all like something different and I love it all (well, most of it). 
 
I'm always on the watch for new music to discover.   This is a great thread.

Shelby's new album, Tears, Lies, And Alibis, is awesome and I seem to believe she has now started her own record label.

I think it certainly enhances one's experience if you get to see performers perform live.  It does for me.  Bushie, looks like an outstanding up and coming duo.

"Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. My youngest daughter found it on some site that suggests new music based on other music that she likes. 

One reviewer calls it "the love song of the decade" (the decade just finished). It is too long at over 5 min to get any airplay, but my other daughter hears it on Sirius/XM. 

If you like some of the old Cash/Carter, or Sonny/Cher (esp Caesar&Cleo) duets, or even certain Dead tunes, you should check them out.            


Still not much airplay for "Home" (as I've said......it is too long), but another of their songs is doing well as the soundtrack for the new Ford Fiesta ads.  Update.....and now "Home" is being used for the new Palm ad.

I've been interested in new music lately and have come across 2 groups you might want to check out.  Bushie, I think you especially might like a guy named Rana Santacruz.  Album is "Chicavasco" named after a small town in South America which he likes.  He's Mexican, plays the accordian and moved to NYC a few years ago and has blended his musical influences into an interesting sound a little hard to describe, but good to listen to.
The other group is one from England, called The Treetop Flyers.  They're heavily influenced by Stephen Stills, named themselves after one of his songs.  Kind of a mellow rock group.  Check'em out.

I saw a wonderful country band, almost a honky-tonk, country from the 50's sound, this past weekend at the Biscuit festival in Knoxville..  They were called Black Bottom Biscuits, they have 3 -4 albums out, hail from Columbia, SC.  All their songs were original and very clever.  I really liked them.

www.blackbottombiscuits.com

Albums are available on iTunes

I got a new album just came out, I believe.  Carole King and James Taylor live album called Live at The Troubadour.  No new songs, but excellent versions of their hits and very well done.

Jeff Beck's version of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow':

http://www.youtube.com/wa...s4&feature=related

From the CD. I'll be seeing him perform it live Friday night in Rochester..Its a difficult song to do live because it relies in one section of sustained plucked false harmonics...miss the the harmonic and a good piece of the song is in jeopardy...can't wait to see if he pulls it off..

I remember Jeff Beck's Blow by Blow album from mid 70's when I was in college.  i'd play it in the ole 8-track and before I knew it I'd be going 90 mph!

A record collector of 78s I know made for me three CDs in chronological order of the recordings of Rosalie Allen, a New Jersey/New York- based country singer from the 1946-1953 era.  Pretty good stuff.

The new John Mellencamp album is really really good.  I bought 2 albums by a group out of Kent, OH called The Speedbumps who I saw in Cleveland a few weeks ago. Both albums were far better than I expected.

Tyranny and Mutation, Blue Oyster Cult's second album, which was released in 1973. I hadn't heard it since my eight-track days in the '70s, and had forgotten what great songs "The Red and the Black" and "Hot Rails to Hell" are.

I was never a Blue Oyster Cult Fan but I know the wonderful experience of having music I liked and then not hearing it for 20 - 30 years, and then hearing it again.  really neat!

The Incredible Machine by Sugarland...really enjoy Jennifer Nettles voice.

 
Country music has a single button on my truck radio, so I was aware of Sugarland, but it wasn't until the CMA awards a few days ago that I learned what the buzz is about. What an incredible performance. This past Saturday I learned on Country top 40 that the song performed on the CMAs got to spend only a single week at number one, because they were up against the Zack Brown bands new single, "while she is walking away". If I had an ipod and knew how to use it, I'd download both songs.

Had to share this with y'all.  A friend of mine here in town, his son lives in Seattle and plays in an awesome band called Hot Club Sandwich.  I discovered that they have at least 7 - 8 albums available on iTunes and elsewhere and if you're a fan of Django Rhinehart or gypsy jazz/hot sounds you'll absolutely love this group.  Their most recent album features Dan Hicks as well, but they're all really excellent.

I've gotten hooked on Native American Music. There's a recording company here in Phoenix that's been producing Native American Artists for over 50 years. Both traditional and Contempoary Musicians. You can download their stuff. Several of their artists recently won Grammys. It's beautiful music.

I just bought an excellent album that I just found out about even though it's 10 years old now.  Done by Chris Brubeck ( Dave's son) and Joel Brown and Peter Mudcat Ruth, it's called triple Play and it's excellent music.  A great little version of Take Five and a classic Nobody Knows You When You're Down & out, and some other excellent numbers as well.

There's probably a few members old enough to have loved the rock group Quicksilver Messenger Service.  Even if you don't you know the song, "Get Together".  it's the archetypal song of the 60's and still popular.  Dina Valenti ( real name, Chet Powers) wrote that song and now the original version is available on a "new" album by him.  He died many years ago but someone found a box of tapes of his music and it's now been released into an album and it's fantastic.  Really good.

Hello, just to say that Chicavasco is not in south america but rather north america in Mexico to be more exact.

Wow,  that's a wild first post.  I'm impressed.
 
A group from Cincinnati, Over the Rhine, is beginning to get noticed after being together as husband and wife for more than 20 years.  They have so many good albums.  The latest I got is one that was released last year called The Long Surrender.  Excellent music.

James Taylor(again) at Carnegie Hall. His first performance was many, many years ago. I would still marry that man.

I've been listening to The Bran Flakes' "Stumble Out of Bed," a track that heavily samples Dolly Parton's "9 to 5." I really like this. 

The last CD I bought was Neko Case's new album, "Middle Cyclone." It's great. I love her voice.

Anybody seen a TV show called Spectacle hosted by Elvis Costello?  He interviews other musicians and plays songs with them.  My son gave me a DVD of season 2 for my birthday but I've not heard of the show.

Carlton, I really loved the first season of Elvis Costello's Spectacle. He had some wonderful guests, Tony Bennett, Elton John, The Police, Lou Reed. He's a great interviewer. I hope Season 2 becomes available on Netflix soon.

Thank you, Improviser.  I'll look for Season 1 on Netflix.  Is the show still currently filming?

Just got the new Antsy McClain album, Heroes Are Forever>  Excellent album recorder with The Trailer Park troubadours at Sun recording studio in Memphis.  So far, I've only been able to find it on his website but it's worth getting.
I also ordered a live Chris Smither album which is also only available on his website.
