C.S.R. Amazing

For whatever reason, tonight I felt like listening to YouTube videos. Somehow I zeroed in on Crosby, Stills, & Nash, without Young. I listened to a concert, to Suite Judy Blue eyes (which literally put a lump in my throat, and almost tears it was so good live), and Wooden Ships. In the first concert I listened to, they played Guinevere, one of my favorites, and many other great songs.

I don't do this thing very often, as once I start, I can't seem to stop for hours. I am passionate about music, be it Deep Purple, Creedence Clear Water Revival, S.S.& N., or Bach. It doesn't matter. I've spent hours listening to nothing by exceptional drummers, like Carl Palmer, or Neil Pert, or Ian Pace, or whoever. I've spent hours cueing in on exceptional guitarists, or phenominal keyboar players, in all kinds of music. Yes, Prog Rock is still my favorite. But there are so may incredible artists out there that I have to sample everything from delta blues, to funk, to classical, to jazz, to rock, and everything in between, including the Morman Tabernacle Choir. I love a big pipe organ, or harpsichord. I love horns of all kinds, and percusion, and strings. I can even listen to incredible sax, or banjo, or whatever. I just love good music, no matter what for it comes in. Tonight I was moved by one of the greats, Crosby, Stills, & Nash. It was a good night for my soul.

I love music of all kinds. I was raised on Beatles and Stones and am primarily a rocker, but I also love Waylon and Willy and other country, along with anything from any musical. I can sing all the songs. Hallaluja brings me to tears, love gospel, hymns, along with blues, Elvis, you name it. I can handle hiphop too, along with didgereedoo and bagpipes. It's all good!

I've been known to tear up to Roundabout, by Yes, when driving down the long road by myself. Pain hasn't brought to my eye since I burned my leg, and I've literally felt blinding pain so that it made everything go black of a second or so. Family reconciliation, the intense love of family members, helping others, watching amazing joy of children, and music, that's what tickles my emotions. By the way, don't have a clue what didgereedoo is. Love bagpipes, limited hip hop, not so fond of Pop, unless it's the Boston Pops You can keep all of the Pop radio stations.

As good as they are, pancakes have never brought a tear to my eye. I've made some hot sauces, pots of chili, and salsas that have though.

Oh, and the natural world can seriously affect my emotions as well.

Heh. I played bassoon, and a didgereedo is sort of like that, but it's a big pipe usually played by Australians, mostly Aborigines. They blow on the top. Usually just one note, but it sounds really cool.

I put one of my favorite discs into the computer and listen to it while I am sitting here wasting time. The TV is almost on mute. Classical music were my lullaby's. So I listen to Mozart and a few other composers. Then I get tired of it and switch to music of the 40's. Then I might switch to one of my favorite opera's.

One day I had an opera on and my youngest was about 13 y.o. His friend asked how could he stand that kind of music. "I grew up with it." Today, he has his own collection of favorite classical music and often puts it on when he is reading required reading for his profession. Sometimes you will find him listening to Gregorian Chant.

Yeah, we are a strange family when it comes to the music we choose to listen to.

Thumbs up

I also loved many tracks by C.S.R too....particularly Guinnevere. Hazy and beautiful harmonies. Teach Your Children Well is an all time fav of mine. I recall listening to a Graham Nash album that also had good tracks on it. I liked The Byrds too e.g. for their harmonies and covering some Dylan tracks better than himself (although that would not be hard). Henrix's rendition of All Along The Watchtower showed just how superb a cover could be.

The 1970s seemed particularly ripe for singer/songwriters. I was one of them (but not in a professional capacity - used to do the contemporary folk circuit).

I love CSN&Y too, I've got a bunch of their songs on Pandora. The 70's was a great decade for music, one of my favorites. I LOVE music - lots of different kinds.

Chief, if you get the AXS channel on satellite or cable, they often have concerts playing. I DVR'ed a Fleetwood Mac concert that's coming up next week, and just watched The Beach Boys a couple of nights ago.

I get stuck on youtube sometimes too, just looking around - it's easy to lose track of time there.

A year or two ago I stumbled upon this shy young sister and brother duo, singing and playing their music at the family kitchen table. Those kids blew me away! I've been kinda following their progress since then.

The 70’s music was a decade that could never be replicated, IMHO. Late 60's were good too, as were 50's. And 40's.

I think 70's were probably my fave.

It seems that the 70's were a lot of music fan's favorite decade, and that includes kids who grew up in the 80's, 90's and millennials. There was just so much creativity, though I have to admit that a few bands from the 90's grunge era were great too, like Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, any band with Chris Cornell in it, Candlebox, and Queensryche. I didn't discover that I loved a couple of songs by Molly Hatchet until about 2013. And the Allman Brothers, in MHO, the best country rock band ever, even though I like Molly Hatchet's cover of "Dreams I'll Never See, written by the Allman Brothers.

Ok, bed time. Talk to all of you tomorrow.

Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, April Wine, Deep Purple. Jimi, Janis, Jim. Too many good ones to remember. And I agree with your selections as well, Chief.

Many good times were had at the Winnipeg Folk Festival too. Taj Mahal, Ian and Sylvia and the Great Speckled Bird, so many others. Oh, the memories!
