Some Kraut Rock! Music is more than just a melody, or a collection of notes!

The sound quality is not so HiFi as one would like but the instrumentality is quite diferent to the usa/brit norm of the day.



May have posted this before but here it is again! It is worth a watch as it does explain much about post war Germany, and how generations mold their own culture, against the old! .... Werner Hertzog!!!!!



And thus Electronica begins!



But apart from Stravinsky - lets keep it Germanic!



So there is a link, thru' time via a changing mindset, using the tools available - the chain of events and influences are a composition in of itself, that bring us update - some would say this is an example of evolution! Pah!

All that though leads to Tangerine Drean and Can - mmmm! A synthesis of thought, thru' a history - what is one's Frequency Kenneth - ?... becomes a matter of perspective ,a retention and an application. After all a note, is just a moment in time - its all good!

Didn't have time to watch all in their entirety, Trypcil. But I did like the comment from Wittgenstein regarding his belief that 'Western civilization had accepted a general faith in science as a solution to the problems of life.'

"People nowadays think that scientists exist to instruct them while poets and musicians exist to give them pleasure. The idea that the latter have something to teach them, that does not occur to them."

Yes! Much is lost when something is gained - a progress trap, perhaps!

I've been listening to a lot of the Louvin Bros. lately. Let's kickstart this ol' thread again, shall we?

Tex' and guys, always good to kick the can further down the road.

India Ramey - Drowned Town. Most of my favorite bodies of water in TX are dammed up valleys where towns once thrived and cemeteries still rest. The album is pretty dark. Makes me appreciate the blessings of "normal" life.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A10PSWlMlac

Phoebe Hunt - Lint Head Gal. Wish I could catch one of her shows with Dori Freeman - who has a new album due in Oct.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCTfrzwUJsQ

Yuli Mayor from America's Got Talent:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39IX...youtu.be&t=38s
Rough start on her audition, she sings a backup song:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaUa...utu.be&t=3m36s





And this showed up in the mail.

Great stuff!

This lady is from my area, in fact, she and her partner are patients at the dental office that my wife manages. Brooke gave her a copy of her CD last week and I found a few of her songs on YouTube. This one is written by Amos Lee but the others on her CD are written by her. Not bad at all...

I liked Windows Are Rolled Down, Tex. Looks like she's going to be in Taylor in December.

Shifting gears... to some daydream, zone out, droning stuff. And some earphones-on task music. Some familiar licks in there.

She played in Rockdale, about 16 miles away last weekend. She told my wife, while at the dentist, that they had a packed house. We probably would've checked it out had we not been out of town. Maybe we'll see her in Taylor.

Marty Stuart

Do we have any Marty Stuart fans here? I've always liked ol' Marty, "He's country to the bone, but he don't wear no hat!". His newest (?) album is last year's "Way Out West". Man, has that thing got a hook in me. It sounds great from start to finish, produced by Mike Campbell of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers. Lot's of great twangy, reverb guitar work from Marty's guitarist Kenny Vaughn that runs the gamut from rockabilly to hard country. It's a good one.

Whole lot of highway (with a million miles to go)

I remember seeing him play in Lester Flatt's band many years ago. Definitely a talented musician back then. Good to see that he has since become a successful singer/songwriter/recording artist.

His bass player in the current lineup is Chris Scruggs, Earl's grandson. I caught them on "Bluegrass Underground" last week, damned great band!

Programming my favorite radio stations into the work truck - came across this song on a Tejano station I was tuning through.

Los Askis - Ay Mi Corzon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1WbwLx2Q9Q

Dang, that's El Condor Pasa. Wait, no it's not. Heeey, I like this. Shazam failed to recognize it so I recorded the tail end of it on the phone. Later checked the station website and - only THAT block of songs was missing from their recent playlist. No luck on Googling the words.

Fast foward to today at the job site... new building construction. One of the GC's guys is singing Spanish and I drop what I'm doing and play the song for him. His eyes light up - no, he didn't know the song or artist, but he knew who probably would and grabbed my arm and drug me over to the guy. Sure enough, he knew my song! Awesome. Gracias, amigo.

I listen to a lot of Schlagersahne from Antenne Bayern via the internet.

That's German pop and traditional folk music for those of you who don't schlager. Not necessarily brass band music, but that is also included.

Courtney Patton has a new album out, I like how she does one-take type recordings. No online versions of her songs yet, here's a snippet of my favorite song so far:
Devil's Hand - https://youtu.be/RJYHPLsRHWQ

Bonsoir, Catin came up on the playlist this morning. What a lineup of Cajun sweetheart powerhouses.
Moi L'aime Une Petite Fille - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L68TxoL9ypE
Donne-Moi Une Autre Chance - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3w5-PA2gs6A

Jeremy Plato ft. Jamie Wilson on a Johnny Paycheck cover. Can't remember if I posted this or not.
It Won't Be Long - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSORkO2wOXY

The ladies in Bonsoir Catin are really good. There is another all-lady Cajun band called the Magnolia Sisters. They, too, are really good! They are nice ladies, to boot!

I first heard this on a compilation CD called "Cajun and Zydeco Classics" on the Flashback label. I'd loved every version of this song, especially the Bands on "Moondog Matinee". But when I heard this one, man oh man, what a ride. I didn't know if Johnny Allan (Allen?) was black or white but he rocked this version! Johnny Allan and the Krazy Kats doing Chuck Berry's "Promised Land":



Another favorite from that same CD, Boozoo Chavis' "Uncle Bud":

There are some really, really nasty versions of "Uncle Bud". Boozoo's version is quite tame by comparison. Some say the song was written about "Uncle Bud" Russell, the Texas Prison Transfer Agent from about 1914 to 1944. Others say the song is older than that. Great version by Boozoo, though. Thanks for posting it!

Back in the seventies and eighties a few bluegrass bands recorded some really thoughtful material from "modern" songwriters. There were a number of Gordon Lightfoot compositions recorded by The New South and the Country Gentlemen, as well as others. Here is Tony Rice, Ricky Scaggs, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and Todd Phillips doing a really nice job on a Lightfoot composition.

OTK, I enjoyed that Balto. Put it on my list to scope out further.


A nice, abbreviated performance of Wayfaring stranger by Yana (Jana?) at The Voice Van Vlaanderen (Flemish Belgium). Love the pronunciation of mother/father.

Same show, Violetta performs a part of Zhuravli, sounds a lot different than the version I'm used to:

The Voice Ukraine - a "traditional Ukrainian folk song" called :

Klass.

A few soft ones from Dori Freeman's most recent album:

She somewhat tops my previous favorite version by EmmyLou Harris (with the exception of the musicians on EmmyLou's cut: Tony Rice, Jerry Douglas, Ricky Scaggs).

Here's one that has resonated with me for a long time:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEt0cpeZuAY

The Balfa Brothers doing "My True Love". These guys were the cutting edge of the Cajun renaissance in the sixties and seventies. There was so much heartbreak and pain in their music, but something redemptive. Rodney Balfa was a fabulous singer. The twin fiddles of Will and Dewey were highly complementary of each other and harkened back to a fiddle tradition in Cajun music that was all but dead before they emerged to revive that tradition. To hear these guys play live was MAGIC. They were so unassuming, but so thoroughly soulful. I've never heard a band quite like them. Poor farm boys from the Cajun prairie who became famous but never well remunerated for their musical contributions to American folk music.

Their song "My True Love" shares a melody with a Doc Watson song called "The Train That Carried My Girl From Town", and a 1927 blues recording by Julius Daniels called "Ninety-Nine Year Blues" (later covered by Hot Tuna).

I am amazed at some of the cross-pollination of melodies across cultures in this country.

"Mark the Music", as Lorenzo said in "The Merchant of Venice"!

Thanks guys! I sure enjoyed that version of "Wayfaring Stranger" and the Balfa Bros' song too. I've been introduced to so much great music through this thread! Thanks again.

The Balfa Bros. song led me to this one:

I've always loved that old song. Years ago, at campouts on my farm, my guitar playing buddy Dennis and I used to do a medley. It started with "Wings of a Dove" and then into "Tramp on the Street" and then morphed into "A Satisfied Mind". I loved singing those three songs together, it seemed such a natural fit.

Interesting vid of Nathan Abshire. It was not uncommon at all for American songs to be translated into Cajun French.

My favorite Nathan song is one he recorded as "Service Blues". I prefer, though, Rodney Balfa's interpretation of the song, as Rodney is a much better singer when it comes to emoting. Rodney does the vocals and plays harmonica on the piece. He recorded the song under the title "Les Blues du Militaire".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNlJIcdAfR8

The stories have it that Nathan had a terrible time in the army. He barely spoke English, and just didn't fit in. The song deals with him boarding a train, and fearfully leaving everything he knows. When the train whistle blows, his eyes tear up and the hair on his head straightens up in fear of leaving everything he knows, as he is undertaking a long journey into a fearful unknown.

Besides being a moving song as Rodney Balfa sings it, the song reminds me of my father's stories of how the draft brought young men out of hills and mountains (and prairies, and swamps) who had never seen cities and were not used to being thrust into situations where they we told what to do by complete strangers that had complete authority over them.

Service during WWII was a shock to French speaking Cajuns and a lot of other men. Nathan Abshire's song is an interesting testament to that reality of the early 1940s.

Rosie Ledet is someone I had never heard of until yesterday. Arby, what's the story on her? I found her music on YouTube and I was impressed a lot by her. Then, I discovered that I could add about 11 of her albums to my Amazon music library, currently at 22,832 songs. Gotta love that streaming music!

She's cute, plays good zydeco accordion and is a sultry singer. What more could we ask?
