I've seen the old spaghetti Westerns but never a Symphony playing these songs

Wow!

What was the date on that performance?

It must have been one of the earliest videos of SofS?

 

Still one of the most awesome songs of all time....

 

(Aside: one forgets how short PS is, compared to AG.  With PS standing, he's still shorter than AG. :D )

Ron's, Whitcomb posts (thank you, Ron) reminded me of this. While I certainly had heard of this woman I did not know just how Big she was. Her music genre is not for the most part my cup of tea. It was obvious to me she had chops, at least on recorded material.

A friend played some of Pink's stuff for me and then she surfed to these two vids on YT.

A great cover of Kristofferson and Foster's 'Me and Bobby McGee'. Live in studio, she doesn't break a sweat, and nails it. Damn, she makes it look easy. Better than Janis' cover?




This next one blew me away. I welled up with admiration of her fearlessness, of her successful execution, of her talent. The audience, including many luminaries, was hers. You can see their reactions on the vid. After the show Pink must've been proud when she reviewed/judged her performance.

Enjoy, and goodnight.

I was amazed that Amy Whitcombs sister actually sings quite well too.  Doesn't appear to be getting the billing Amy does but still good.

 

As for Pink - well you know it's old when it's SESSIONS @  AOL  (do people still use AOL) ?  That was back in 2003

 

I really like Pink's voice but I don't understand her demeanor about feminine rights.  Don't recall the site but a while back someone interviewed her and she went on and on how it was degrading to women to pose in stuff like some of these RAP videos or having to look sexy to sell music, but then she turns right around and does those type of videos to make money.  Just seems a bit hypocritical to other women to say it about them and then turn around and do it herself.

 

I've posted this one before but this girl has "chops" and presence singing Son of a Preacher Man back in 2006

 

 

 

This thread though has some amazing singers and musicians strewn throughout it.

@Ron, re:Pink's feminine uttering.

Artists', performance or otherwise, views of existence barely reach the conceptual level of cognition, generally speaking.

If they don't apply the same principals required (exacting) to produce a great work of music to their philosophic thinking, it'd be far better for them to just perform -- zip it on any matter of substance. Shhhhhh..or wake up? ;)

Joe B seriously ROCKED IT during a 4-concert gig in London last year.

4 venues, 4 bands, 4 totally different shows.

I didn't make it across the Pond to see him there, but will be seeing him live later this year.

HIGHLY recommend the whole set.

 

 

The man can bend a string - acoustic and electric.

As with so many blues players, he is inexplicably very much under-appreciated in the US.

Another of my favorite blues-rock guitarists (have uploaded his stuff here before).

He always brings it!

 

Enjoy!

 

Check out the drummer -- I think it's Chuck Norris with a toupee:

 

 

Not HD (and the audio isn't great, either), but a great performance nonetheless:

The 'market' for blues players is up and down. There never has been (to my recollection) a sustained, mass appeal. You'll have a great time at the show, I'm sure. :)

 

This guy was actually criticized back in the day for having the audacity to pretend to be a part-time blues man.  He wasn't so bad. :-)

 

 

 

OTOH, this guy crossed the pond and humbled an axe 'god'.

 

 

Full vid of 'Killing Floor' at the (different) 1969 Stockholm concert.

Hi:

 

Nice selections there!

 

Yeah, that Clapton guy isn't so bad on Blues, either.  But he only got into it as a "2nd career", when he was already rich and famous.

Sadly, 'tis true, at least in the U.S.
Thankfully these guys (and gals) enjoy huge support abroad.

Joe B shrewdly bypassed the whole "label" thing a while back -- it was rough at first, but it has paid off (literally and figuratively).

And he gets to make the records he wants.

I have enjoyed watching him evolve and mature.

He is one helluva guitar player, singer and songwriter.

Blues and rock and acoustic and electric and....

 

To say that I am looking forward to seeing him live would be a bit of an understatement. :D

 

 

Signed,

P.S. Yeah, for painfully obvious and stupid reasons, GCJr is often likened to Hendrix. IMHO, he is his own huge talent.

Blues lover myself (emphasis on blues guitarists !)

 

YT takes me places. I like that. Stumbled onto a hukulele player from Hawaï. Very good player. I just never knew a hukulele could sound like this.

Sit back and enjoy...
