BillW -

I'm just now discovering Clannad but my husband has been a huge fan from the start. Did you see Maire/Moya at The Ram's Head Tavern in Annapolis last year? It was a magical evening & she was gorgeous..

I'm also listening to:

Enya, mostly... (Maire/Moya's sib)
Josh Groban (no laughing!)
Restless Heart
Brooks and Dunn
Travis Tritt
Court TV

Just recently getting back into Gordon a bit.
It's been a long time.

It's been a while since I checked this thread. Right now I am od-ing on Jimmy Buffet. I just love his 'License to Chill'.
And Daniel - I love Charlie Landsborough!
Nice to see his name out there.

Always listening to: Chris Isaak, Mary Black, Toby Keith, Moody Blues, Byrds (with Gene Clark), Bobby Goldsboro, Bob Lind (has new album coming out this year!), Dwight Yoakam, Steve Holy (ever heard "Just a Kiss" (?) tremendous cut from his 'Blue Moon' CD), The Mavericks, Steve Gillette ("Darcy Farrow"), Josh Groban, Alison Krauss, and Andrea Bocelli...but Gord is at the top of the list! Never NOT in the mood for GL.

If you love GL's music - I would HIGHLY recommend listening to Hem. Their music is just beautiful. I couldn't say enough about them!

I'm also an avid listener of:

The Tragically Hip
Sarah McLachlan
David Gray
Josh Ritter
The Frames
Reindeer Section
Seals & Crofts *looks sheepish*
James Taylor
Dave Mathews Band
Depeche Mode - hey, I'll always be an eighties child!
Damien Dempsey
Mark Geary
Martin Finke
(The above 3 are Irish singer songwriters - check them out if you have aminute )
Led Zepplin
Three Dog Night

There are so many more, but I can't begin to list them all. The above is good for a start.

I listen to all my music on continuous rotation. Every cd I own is a prized memory.

*Edited because of a spelling mistake!

I've actually been making my way through the 4 DVD Live Aid set and enjoying all those bands.

My favorite, forever and always, will be Queen. Both at Live Aid, and in my musical tastes.

A perfect companion to GL, and another favorite of mine, is Jim Croce. He also had a fantastic voice and his songs were driven by beautiful guitars. Jim Croce idolized GL and was heavily influenced by his music. Years before he hit it big in '71, Croce had this idea of making himself into an "American Lightfoot." Toward that end, he hooked up with John Stockfish, who we all know preceded the great Rick Haynes as GL's bass player. Along with Jim's wife, Ingrid, they recorded some great folk songs about best forgotten yesterdays and hopeful tomorrows. On the Jim Croce DVD, there is an interview segment at the end where Jim grabs a guitar and sings "Song for a Winter's Night" (one of my all-time favorites) with his wife. I was surprised and grateful. I just wish the narrator would have shut up so I could hear the song.
Thank you for the opportunity to post a few thoughts. It's nice to know there are others out there with excellent taste in music.
Take care,
Greg


I just love Croce's music. I bought the DVD last night and watched it three times. I may watch it three more times today. I was pleasantly surprised by their version of SFAWN Night. Beautiful harmony, but like you, I kept thinking, "I wish the narrator would shut to h*ll up!"
I often wonder what the future would have held for Jim and his sideman Maury, had that tragic crash not happened. What a great loss to the music world.

My favorite Croce song to play and sing is These Dreams. It literally took me years to figure out a decent guitar accompaniment, but now that I've got it down, I find that it is always one of the first songs I play, every time I pick up a guitar.

Right now, I'd have to say my second favorite is Stan Rogers. I've been hooked on Stan ever since that rascal, Ed Mullen, introduced me to his music. I especially like his slower ballads.
Others on the list:
Jim Croce
Tom Paxton
Don McLean
Simon & Garfunkel
Dylan
Alison Krauss
Eva Cassidy
James Taylor
Cat Stevens
Townes Van Zandt
John Denver
Carol King
Eagles
Merle Haggard
Kris Kristofferson
Dave Mallett
Johnny Cash
Arlo Guthrie
Kathy Mattea
CCR
Jimmy Buffett
Tim O'Brien
Jimi Hendrix
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
John (Cougar) Mellencamp
ZZ Top
Johnny Horton (Whispering Pines...love it)
Patsy Cline
And that Boxcar Willie CD I bought last night is great. My parents used to play his music all the time, and I had forgotten about him over the years.
Gee, I could go on and on and on. It's really a never ending list.

How was Dire Straits on those DVD's? I've heard that they were doing a big concert somewhere else that same day and made special arrangements to play at Live Aid and then fly back to do their other show. Heard they were limited with what instruments they could bring along due to setting up for the other show.

wow, dvd's have really come down in price (same with legit CD's ...mp3's just dont' do justice to most great productions so i don't listen to many) so i was finally able to see the Croce Live one after only seeing glimpses during the VH1 show years ago

they did actually show a bit more of SFAWN during the Farm doc, is that recording available in full form anywhere? i think Ingrid, Jim and Maury Muehleisen (nice to see him remembered in the July04 Sounding Board ) could have hooked up and given PP+M a good run as a wonderful harmonizing trio (but i suppose Ingrid was busy raising AJ)

anyhow, many are not fans of GL covers but GL is a songwriter first and foremost to me and i love hearing anyone and everyone adding new arrangements, varied phrasings, new harmonies, etc to his timeless creations...i will have to find JC's SRBs also someday, i can almost hear it in my head already

btw, some of the live tunes on the DVD were new to me (i thought i new all JC stuff!) and superb...all i want in live music is what they offered, 2 acoustics and lead and harmony vox...i wish i'd see GL in a similar setup, i miss live GL harmonies (i don't even think a song like Triangle should be done live without harmonies, anyhow, digression) ...cheers JC and MM, miss you guys

jj


wow, i thought i was reading my own post, but from another thread, lol

great to see the statuesque Stockfish in that Spin Spin Spin video too man, the look of admiration and love in any shot of Ingrid gleaming at Jim is heartbreaking

i think AJ dug up the archives and threw this DVD together (Carwash Blues is such a clean print!), can one of Gord's sons do the same for us all, while Gord and WE are still alive?

back on topic, listening to the Barra McNeils

Mostly I'm all Gord all the time, but tonight I'm stuck here at work testing software for a deadline, and listening to Creed. What a great band!

Roger McGuinn (Real first name is Jim) was also involved briefly with The Chad Mitchell Trio and then released 2 45s as by The City Surfers on Capitol in '63, before forming The Beefeaters with Gene Clark, which then became The Byrds in '64-'65.

Roger is one of my favorite musicians. Among Byrds recordings, Mr Tambourine Man (a Dylan song that even he didn't recognize the first time he heard the Byrds version) and Turn, Turn, Turn are probably the "trademark" and best known songs. Roger is known for his "jingle, jangle" guitar sound; it's something to see and hear. Martin Guitar just issued a new SEVEN string guitar, designed by Roger. With that guitar (the G-string is doubled as with a 12 string, but the other 5 strings are not), you (or at least Roger) can get the signature sound yet have the flexibility of a 6 string. If I could play a bit better (a lot better), I'd get me one of those!
