Mmmm. I saw Cat Stevens in 1973. He walked out barefoot onto a carpet in the middle of the stage, picked up his guitar and just played and sang.

Glad you like the Liszt, Sandy. I'll be doing more than ten reps a day over the next three weeks but only in short sections smile


Bob Dylan doesn't have a great voice technically but it's difficult to improve on his material without tackling it from a different direction. Here's a nice try from Them.

I'll be around today, and I'm enjoying all of these postings. How about a little smooth jazz with Grover Washington, "Strawberry Moon"

He he, I've seen Patti Smith - and the guy from Television, Tom Verlaine - do the same, with Persian rugs. I think it's a 70s thing!

Anyone remember Jonathan Edwards? He still travels around the country and still plays barefoot. So I think you're right about it being a 70's thing. I met him recently, he's a very nice, soft spoken guy.

Good evening everyone!

I wanted to post about the cimbalom, an instrument from Hungary which is played with two drumsticks striking strings. It makes a very attractive sound.

Here we can listen to this instrument, as soloist in the “Hary Janos” suite by Zoltán Kodály.

I love it! Never heard of it until now...almost a cross between a guitar and drums "sorta" sound? Pleasant....
Off to bed all, thanks for the great music !

I think it probably was a 70s thing. Possibly the great Sitar artist, Ravi Shanker, could have unknowingly had an influence here. Purely speculation on my part, however.

Good night!

Wow, what a great mix there. the last thing i remember was the truck bug pic.....
Loved the Chaconne in G Minor. Thanks for that.

PPP, that Bug song reminded me of Cows With Guns.



I have been preparing a piece for the ABF recital - Brahms Intermezzo 118/1, but not sure if i will submit this time around....few days left to get a half decent recording. It's been occupying my headspace for the last 2 weeks.

Becca,
Great live performance by Alanis Morissette.

Always remember her grammy's performance of You Oughta Know.

As long as we are going down Memory Lane, I can make time to share this piece of nostalgia from college days.

Golly gosh, it's scenes from childhood!

Here's one from my teens that's never lost its place in my heart.

I love a good soundtrack and I'm sure I've heard the cimbalom before...i think it is used in Lara's Theme from Dr. Zhivago...



Its been a while since I've seen it but this isn't the original I don't think...but I did do some research and apparently in the original a cimbalom was used to mimic a balalaika.

Ha! I saw him too. I was still at school - sometime between 1966-1969.

Yazoo! Bob, I too hail from Basildon. I was just a few years ahead of Vince, Alf and that whole Depeche Mode thing.
