I saw them once in Toronto back in the 70's. 1975, I think? My high school boyfriend was (and still is) a rabid Stones fan, so it was all Stones, all of the time.

One of the first albums I ever owned was Out Of Our Heads by the Rolling Stones, and I have always been a fan, buying most of their albums more than once with the change from vinyl to CD. I was lucky enough to see them at a relatively small venue in London in 2003 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwhJJSjlFrM I remember that it was standing only for mere mortals like me on the ground floor (with VIPs upstairs seated in the circle), so having queued to get in through security for about 3 hours then spent over 2 hours waiting and seeing the support act and then their set of over 2 hours, I could hardly walk afterwards! woozy

They did a few small gigs. In Toronto in the late 70's they played at the El Mocambo, which was a pretty small club. There was a contest for tickets, but I didn't win one.

Something a little out of the mainstream and "down home," but of possible interest: I have a 2011 live album which I enjoy - JJ Grey & Mofro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpXTK7HD2Ls

...and for something more up to date and bluesy with plenty of energy try Larkin Poe who I find hit the spot on their album Self Made Man from last year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5iF1DKA6IM - their covers seem to get more of an airing on youtube and some of those are not bad smile

Right now I would say Porcupine Tree is my favorite but I have also been spending time listening to some great new bands like The Warning and Liliac.

SQF, those were all new to me, but seriously interesting: real girl power from The Warning and Liliac, and quite a depth to the music of Porcupine Tree - thanks for the suggestions. thumbsup

The Metallica cover by Liliac was excellent, and they don't do a bad Paranoid cover either https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjF-TRyM8qU
Girl power wise, Lizzy Hale (Halestorm) is worth a listen

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmkHqUwa4zg

And how good must that Astoria Stones concert have been!

I have to confess to not being into Heavy Metal (apart from some early Black Sabbath) but I had encountered Halestorm: powerful stuff!

My Prog Rock exposure is also pretty limited apart from some Pink Floyd, and talking of Pretty Things...

Thanks for posting those Porcupine tree links Lex. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, Trains and Lazarus are my favorite PT songs.

Here is a softer side of Liliac that I think you might enjoy:

Here is an early clip from the warning:

Lex ,

I should of added that both Liliac and The Warning are family bands. All the members are siblings.
I also loved all of your links Lex.

The best version of Hallelujah ever IMO:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRP8d7hhpoQ

And another favorite:

SQF, I had noticed that Liliac is made up of siblings but not The Warning.

Impressed by Pentatonix's version of Hallelujah, but I have a couple of live versions by Leonard Cohen which are hard to beat, and I seem to recall a version by Nick Cave which was poignant: I preferred the second link, and the same youtube page took me to various other interesting items including in particular performances involving 2 Cellos.

Thanks for those ideas and I am glad you are enjoying the thread!

Naturally different music suits and can influence different moods: yesterday these two featured for me
Robert Plant - All the King's Horses https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av58E3VLplA
Cowboy Junkies - Misguided Angel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFApH_DGDnw

... but today starts like this: Warren Zevon - Werewolves of London https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qae25976UgA
probably followed by Queen - Man on the Prowl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGCsCCcAk_A dance

Thanks for the links Lex. thumbsup

I hope some of you got to checkout the Lazarus & Trains links by Porcupine Tree. I love both of those songs.

Chilling to Pachelbel with oceans sounds now. dance

Some more good stuff.
If you liked the 2 Cellos rendition Lex, here is another instrumental version by the Vitamin String Quartet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-jMGvvMoAg
Am spending the morning going back over the recent stuff and exploring the youtube sidebars

Cowboy Junkies are another Canadian band. I like their cover of Sweet Jane.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa9nN3G2CSg

And Robert plant -- what can you say! This is one of my very favourite Robert Plant tunes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxSsol3Zd7k

Love the 80's hair and clothes.

I have always liked that version of Sweet Jane hagatha, and ditto Big Log.
RP does a great version of Song To The Siren, one of my favourite songs, and some excellent duets with Alison Krauss

Oh, wow, flotsam. I had no idea RP covered Song to the Siren. It's a lovey song, and he covers it beautifully.

My favourite rendering of their version of Sweet Jane is on the album Long Journey Home (live in Liverpool) where it is stretched to over 8 minutes with an intro worthy of the Velvet Underground https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS3yUwFnVGQ and here is a good clip of them from 1998 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGClEEL0K_o

Robert Plant played an excellent series of concerts across South America in 2012 with the Sensational Space Shifters and they used to be available to purchase (and perhaps still are): I have the one from Santiago from which a couple of extracts are here http://www.tightbutloose.co.uk/tour...-shifters-santiago-chile-movistar-arena/

Enjoy! catrub

Flotsam, I had not previously heard the Pachibel with ocean sounds - very relaxing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlZuQEdG51o

I have just bought it used on eBay for £2-00

Not quite as relaxing but still great to chill in my book is Ed Alleyne-Johnson's album Echoes - he also does Pachibel's Canon! Here are some links

...and SQF, powerful stuff: thanks for the link!

That is indeed an excellent Sweet Jane, and glad you liked the RP cover hagatha.
Off to check out the violins.

Going back to Song To The Siren, although it was written by Jeff Buckley a lot of people know it through the version by This Mortal Coil. Which was really the Cocteau Twins, and I saw an interview once with the lead singer Elizabeth Fraser where she was reflecting on the fact that the Twins best known song wasn't one that was sheeted home to them.

These are links to TMC and a live Cocteau Twins version

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFWKJ2FUiAQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xP2vw189q4U

It has launched a few ships. The solo career of John Frusciante from Red Hot Chili Peppers possibly among them

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZgyv1-i6s4

I missed the Evanescence link last time through SQF but have always thought Amy Lee was much under appreciated. Maybe if she had gone out on her own? I don't know, but I do know she can certainly sing.
Here is an interesting fusion version of her on one of the bands earliest hits.

Wow is all I can say about that last link flotsam. Thank you so much. The audience and the orchestra really added to this great performance. I think you also introduced me to some new instruments. thanks
