That particular track is available to buy as a digital download single from Amazon and iTunes (cheaper).

If any of you enjoy long guitar solos you might like this version of Cortez The Killer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYrD2SthaMU and another shorter and more melodic one from the same guitarist, Warren Haynes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTuRwNZrA58

Cool stuff!

I like this Steve Winwood performance of the same song but with Tom Petty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8nWtXp7ns4

Eric Clapton playing the blues can do no wrong as far as I am concerned: my favourite album of his is Just One Night - live with a really tight band, Albert Lee as support guitarist and a great selection of songs on a double CD https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLz6cAheObZcjM29Q9xiomdz-blOIAes1B - Blues Power really rocks!

I came upon this busking video earlier: good guitar but it was the irreverent comments on the performance which made me laugh out loud

I like 60's and early 70' music mostly but don't listen to music too much. It seems to always end up depressing me; even the upbeat or cute stuff. Songs that I like bring memories and even if they start out good, they turn out bad because that is all they are now - memories. Even the singing birds caused some pangs.

Actually, I don't have "an ear" for music. I like songs, mostly ones I can sing along with.

Marian, #2 is one of my favourites. I had no idea Prince was such an amazing guitar player until I saw this concert recording a few years back.


My earworm for the day is the Pretenders:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZxZbWmWaG4

It's stuck in my head.

I actually love this song, have done since I was was in university. It's one of my favourite dancing songs even today.

( I used this particular video because Avengers!)

I too did not know that Prince was a great guitar player until I saw that video, hagatha. It was quite the revelation!

I knew Prince was good on guitar, but it was still a revelation seeing him take centre stage with a solo in such exalted company: thanks for that link.

I also love the Pretenders, hagatha, and there are some interesting and quite hard to find tracks apart from their well known hits, including these two from the film GI Jane

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGB-QGDU8mE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YPDDT3xy1s

and this Hendrix cover https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Y5Qql4uZVc

Enjoy! catrub

So, Joni Mitchel is finally getting recognized by the Kennedy Center. She's one of our finest poet-singers, and she's been an inspiration to so many musicians over the last 50 years.


One of those she inspired is Diana Krall, another of my favourite Canadian artists, covering Joni's A Case of You.

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


And Joni herself, singing the same song with her latter-day whiskey-and-cigarette voice.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5obQZG_ZmZo



It's so sad that Joni can no longer perform

I was interested to see that Prince was a particular fan, and also did a version of that song.

I especially remember her in younger days at the sequence in Alice's Restaurant about Woody Guthrie's funeral.

I hadn't been aware of Prince's cover until now. Quite wonderful.

Lots of good stuff here.
Thanks for the Pretenders links Lex. I saw them years and years ago and (relatively) more recently saw Chrissie Hynde in a double bill with Debbie Harry.
I knew she was once in a relationship with Ray Davies but didn't realise until recently that some Pretenders songs were Kinks songs. Here are links to two:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZQUKN5G9xk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6gMS7aiMLk

And here is a link to a NY TImes article about those who were part of the Prince Weeping Guitar cover. I developed a whole new appreciation for his talent the first time I saw that cover.

https://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/28/arts/music/prince-guitar-rock-hall-of-fame.html

Love those Joni links too hagatha. thumbsup

Flotsam, the Kinks were a fabulous band. Their songs are all so cleverly written. I remember when Lola first came out, everyone at my high school was just 'Whut"? duh Not sure how they got that one past the censors, although I guess FM radio was around by that time.

I have You Really Got me on my Spotify playlist along with a few other older songs to wake me up on a long drive.

Was going through my cd's this morning to pull pout a few priorities for digitizing and/or putting on the Spotify playlist, and of course this ended up on the list:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d76pxiPlxHs

Still one of my favourites after more than half a century.

Great stuff, and here are a few more nostalgic hits from that era which I particularly liked

The Troggs - Wild Thing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSWInYFVksg
The Monkees - I'm a Believer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gv2MLlZKarM (my sister and I liked this one so much we each bought a copy, often played in different rooms at the same time!)
The Loving Spoonful - Daydream https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7u5SdjDSQQ
The McCoys - Hang on Sloopy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlTKhPkZSJo

and the one I always used to play early at parties to get people on the dance floor, Tommy James and the Shondells - Mony Mony https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkMgs3lFwkQ (turned up LOUD and usually followed by the Stones, either Satisfaction or Get Off Of My Cloud...) devilchili

The Kinks were so inventive hagatha; who would have thought the same writer and band could produce both Lola and Dedicated Follower of Fashion! Eclectic indeed.
Lex, I am ashamed to admit I never knew Billy Idol's version of Mony Mony was a cover. redface. The original is excellent; I will have to learn more about that band.
And the Stones are an excellent next song - as for which one I wondered whether Rocks Off might have pushed your buttons? A great first track in terms of setting up the album which is to come.

Flotsam, I was a Stones girl back in high school and university. I loved everything they did. At the time they really were the greatest rock and roll band in the world.

Did you ever get to see them? I still kick myself for not buying tickets on offer to a Wembley concert as I exited the Marble Arch tube station in (i think) 2000.
