Okay. Here's one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14tdvxUvxFU

I'll admit that I have some reservations in posting this youtube link. This piece deserves to be heard on a really good stereo system and not a cheap set of computer speakers. This is "Chi mi frena in tal momento?" from the opera "Lucia di Lammermoor". Enrico Caruso, Amelita Galli-Curci, and four others from 1917. These artists devoted their entire lives to be able to deliver brilliant vocals in pitch, timing, and in conjunction with other artists of their calibre.

Here's another one, this time from John McCormack:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoZ7BftWbyc

He sang opera in the "Italian Style". He proved that to any doubters with his recording of "Il Mio Tesoro" from "Don Giovanni". He was a highly capable operatic tenor.

If you don't cotton to opera, try his Irish songs. If you have even a scintilla of Irish blood in your gene pool, give him a listen.

Perfect on two counts. This thread is about sharing just that type of passion in the genres we like. It doesn't matter if anyone else likes it--it's the personal recommendations that matter. You just never know what treasure or budding appreciation you might introduce to someone.

Eventually I will use private youtube links to share music i can't find in the public domain.

Second is the topic of reproduction. I have wondered what people play their music on. I bet we've got some cool set ups out there. For my situation and being away from home so much I have good headphones and DAC/amps for the tablet and laptop. I'll give Mssrs. Caruso, McCormack, et al. a fair shake. Thanks for the recommendations!

Went to see these guys Wednesday night.

Now that Pepper has returned to the band, I expect they'll make a shit ton of money, but they were pretty good as a 3 piece with Mike doing the vocals.

Some Norwegian.

I really like Marit Karlberg's voice. It's led to some interesting places.
Sudan Dudan - Svein Svane. This song is therapeutic for me.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SfvTCJq69Q

Marit was part of a soundtrack for a TV series inspired by a folk writer. I inquired about purchasing the CD since it wasn't available anywhere. The studio simply mailed one to me free of charge. My fav songs, can't find the titles of them yet:
https://youtu.be/kVaGUbaG6Yo
https://youtu.be/6gclzpr86d0

Ingebjørg Bratland sings Mitt Hjerte Alltid Vanker live. Arve Moen Bergset has a nice studio version if you like.

I love conjunto music. And Flaco Jimenez is just an incredible accordionista. To me, he was the musician who really made the Texas Tornados. This song was written by his father, Santiago Jimenez. Damn, I could listen to this for hours...and do sometimes. It seems to go better with some cold Dos Equis and spicy hot chicharrones (fried pork skins)!

How could you possibly be sad or mad... or sober when listening to this?

In his paramedic days my dad worked all hours and would set his alarm radio to Tejano to fall asleep. Funny for a nappy headed gringo, but he did have a half-Mexican wife... that knew no Spanish.

Really enjoy this compilation disc "American Folksay: Ballads and Dances, Chain Gang".

My favorite Cisco Houston song - The Rover. "I'd like to be your side track, Baby, until your Main Line comes... I could do more switching than your Main Line ever done."

Frank Warner - Jolly Roving Tar.

Cisco Houston was one of the better "folk" singers in the Guthrie tradition whose memory barely survives the decade of the sixties, sad to say.

Here's my favorite Cisco Houston recording, one of "Pastures Of Plenty", originally on the album "Cisco Houston Sings The Songs Of Woody Guthrie":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa_3SbbPuJE

Guthrie's composition utilizes the melody of "Pretty Polly", a murder ballad dating back to the 13th century England.

Houston's baritone was always more pleasing to the ear than Guthrie's raspy voice. One of the kickers on this recording is Eric Weissberg on 5-string banjo. Weissberg was a graduate of the Julliard School of Music and a consummate musician. His early work with the Tarriers stands him in stead with some of the best banjo players of that era. He was the banjoist on the the soundtrack of "Deliverance", playing "Dueling Banjos".

I've got to agree with that! I heard Flaco a couple of years ago at a festival and the performance was great. I love the way that polkas are a component part of a lot of conjunto and norteno styles (no thanks to Lawrence Welk, mind you!).

The polkas and the accordion were "borrowed" from Czech and German settlers in Texas, as was the tradition of "curing by smoking" meat (resulting in the great Texas-style barbecue). It is interesting to see the cross-cultural exchanges that occurred in early-day Texas...still going on really. Polkas? Why not?

From one of the best polka bands ever, the Vrazels Polka Band of Milam county Texas. The only polka band invited to the Bicentennial celebration in D.C. in 1976.

On their way to Texas, some of those same German and Czech immigrants turned Cajun and Creole musicians on to the diatonic accordion back in the late 1800s.

So true. Like this "red hot" zydeco.

Here's a couple of stellar bluegrass Gospel recordings from the seventies. The harmony is excellent. First up is The Seldom Scene doing "Where You There" (forgive me for any ad that youtube makes you listen to prior to the playing of the song):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hz7xOHFkNU

The Seldom Scene was a D.C. based bluegrass band that was an off-shoot of the Country Gentlemen. John Duffey singing high tenor and playing mandolin was an original member of the Country Gentlemen and then split off to form Seldom Scene. He had been offered a scholarship to the Peabody Institute to study opera but he turned it down to play and sing bluegrass.

When I was a kid I heard my father sing "Where You There". I've always loved the piece.

Here's Boone Creek from the late seventies. This was Ricky Scagg's group. Scaggs is singing and playing mandolin. Boone Creek had 2 albums out under that name. This is fabulous bluegrass harmony singing!

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

If you have to listen to this on cheap computer speakers it may not be worth the effort. The rich texture of the harmonies probably won't be evident at all. But if you can plug a set of Sennheiser or comparable quality headphones into your CPU, prepare to be impressed!

In the "Serbian" post I uploaded tracks 16 and 17 from the disc in the link below, but it was deemed 922r violation by utube.

Good stuff, Arby.


For those interested in headphones beyond the cheapy Best Buy, Wally World and Beats type of crap...

Impedence is important if you are primarily using native sound adapters... mobile phones, laptops, built-in audio on desktop computers, etc. 32 ohms is the norm for headphones used with those devices.

I highly recommend an alternative sound device such as a USB DAC/amp combo. The DAC completely replaces your sound card and the built-in amp helps drive your headphones to their potential. Some of these devices are affected by noise on the USB circuit, usually you get what you pay for.

I've several headphones and DAC/amp devices, mostly portable. At the cheap end for DAC/amps I would recommend the Fiio E07, Schiit Fulla or CEntrance DACport Slim. At the higher end for portables I am a big fan of the GeekOut models by LH Labs. A definite step up in power and sound quality. The GeekOut 1000 is discounted right now due to the new V2 model intro.

For cheaper headphones.... for Americana and traditional music like blues, bluegrass, etc., minumim I would recommend is the eGrado or its slightly more expensive SR-60e sibling. They have a clarity, brightness, warmth and open sound stage that's hard to beat for the dollar. Nothing compares at the price. The bass is good but not the hard thump you want if hip hop or such is your gig. The sound might be fatiguing for Metal heads. They are an open back design which means as much sound comes out the back side as does the side pressed to your ear. Great for home, maybe not great for public use.

If you have more to spend the Sennheiser HD650, ATK K7xx and Grado 300/500 models are recommended.

Closed-back headphones can sound muffled compared to open back designs, but there are some great designs out there. Closed backs usually offer better bass thump if that's important to you. The arguable best bang for buck is the ATH-M50 series. They're definitely better (to me) than the Sennheiser HD280 Pros I have. But not as cheap.

At the higher end are the Beyerdynamic DT series, MrSpeaker and so many more. Pay attention to impedence, some require a serious amp.

Then there are singularities such as the NAD HP50 and its attempt at "Room Feel".

I like straight cables, coiled tends to affect the higher frequencies, to my ears. Those with tinnitis might like a darker, subdued highs sound found in some headphones. My HD 280 Pros kind of sound like that subdued sound, to me. Bass can be impressive.

The head-fi.org forums and review site are helpful. But it's a lot like wine tasting and choice... so many opinions and descriptors that it can be hard to really compare.

The massdrop site often has some good deals due to the power of group buys. Make sure you check Amazon/auction site prices first.

Arby's last post brought a bunch of songs to mind. I love the work of the Cox family, no doubt due in a large part to Alison Krauss' involvement. Word is a new Cox/Krauss work is due soon.

I Am Weary, Let Me Rest from the live O Brother performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF9a...youtu.be&t=11s

Back Roads. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ebh0wKOyOGc

You've Got Me To Hold On To Baby. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTpqunFa6Go

Little Birdie is another good one. And... blasphemy... I like their album version of Blue Bayou better than Ronstadt's. Not on youtube yet.

Hard to beat a live performance well done. Especially when done well among more than one act. The Bean Blossom 1973 recording is one of my favorites.

Mary Ann by Jimmy Martin & The Sunny Mountain Boys. I howl along with it at top volume when I'm driving. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTwl7W2CPOo

I wish that piece could have been more prominent in the movie, but at least it was on the soundtrack. I find the recording on the soundtrack more compelling than that on the youtube video.

Good call, Fn/form.

Some more non-US music.

A choral tribute to Lyudmila Zykina, said to be the matriarchal figurehead of Russian folk. She was present for this on her birthday and only a month before she passed away. The audio artifacts are present in every recording I've located, but this is the best quality video I've found.

Kalina folk group; rough song title translations.
In The Evening (Вечерком) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crdzq77IrO8
Quiet River (За тихой рекой) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONleZnyYw3c
I can't yet seem to locate a great recording of Lullaby For Russia (Колыбельная для России).

Uudam
He was orphaned as a child, and this is supposedly his song about his dreams.

Pop listeners may recognize the intro to this 1960s original. Jem looped it in Come On Closer. A Bollywood musical:

I watch a lot of the vocal audition shows, Got Talent, The Voice, etc. Susan Boyle, Paul Potts, etc. are all well known.

One of my favorites of all time is Dorota Osinska of Poland. I wish I could remove the sound of the chairs turning here, but she's never made an English recording of this song as powerful as her audition.

Je t'aime . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jx7j5uWdM1s

Her chosen studio albums are mostly not my cup of tea, but there are a few I like.

Some wind down music. One of my favs is Agnes Obel. A friend with a Masters in music calls me a Dorian freak. I had to look up what that was.

"Irish" has been on my menu tonight. Mostly pre-1980 Dubliners, on vinyl. I wish I could post a link to their medley of "Musical Priest/Blackthorn Stick", but I can't find it on the internet. Fabulous interplay of fiddles, tin whistle, and tenor banjo, Irish style.

On the subject of the ladies in song, I love this haunting song. Amanda Shires, "When you need a train it never comes":

Haven't found any recordings of Big Man that let her voice really shine. Usually covered by instruments or other vocals. Love her voice, you can hear the magic with the beginning vocals of Big Man.

I've been watching the progress of this gal on The Voice. A lot of potential. I don't care for much Nashville modern country, but I love her version of this song. Too short.

German Philosophers Love Song

One of the most brilliant thinkers and Eastern Orthodox hymnographers/choir directors currently living. Jeremy Boor sings the melody and harmony in this comedic " love song".

With an eye to what happened in Paris last week, here's a bit of Hollywood that might resonate at this time:

I love live music, and the smaller the venue, the better. Found this neat article from over ten years ago about my favorite music venue. Saw Robbie Fulks there earlier in the year, and Fred Eaglesmith's Traveling Steam Show a couple weeks ago. Will be seeing Bill Kirchen in a couple of weeks. The history just oozes from the walls of this joint.

Very cool. Wish I had time to get out and about more.

That reminds me. I listen to streaming stations locally. KCCT out of Corpus Christi claims the Red Dirt moniker. KDRP in the greater Austin area is local, a real favorite. Some KKYX if I'm in the mood for Country Gold and soybean futures.

Music Fog is a big favorite if you can't tell from a lot of the videos I post. It's locally produced and Jessie Scott is a DJ on KDRP.

A bunch of other online channels as well. May have to make a list.

Any recommendations?

Went to see Corrosion of Conformity last week in Raleigh, and this band was opening. Pretty good for an opening act on a four band bill. This video is from that show.

Mothership, out of Dallas, Tx.

Sorry Otis, I can't dig that. Totally unimaginative to me. And being Texas boys, you know they've been exposed to lot's of great music. Probably just me, but it seems like a lot of boring noise to these ears...but, hey, so does 99% of Metallica's output, and look how popular they are.

What do I know?!?!

Hey, try some of this, the big, bad Bonecrusher, live:
