And then when you first heard him you were probably surprised to find out he wasn't black.

No videos for me right now while killing time at work. I'll get back to ya's.

No, Frankie Laine was the one everybody thought was black.

Here's something from the 80s you won't find on a chart with the rest of the drivel that came out in that era.



And here's one I was recently turned on to. Newish band out of Bath, England. Gooood shit, funky....makes ya wanna dance.





True, new music mostly sucks. But if you dig, the good shit's there.

And one for the road.

I had not heard of The Heavy, but though I probably wouldn't turn them up, I neither would I turn them off.

And of course, you don't get credit for this one. The only person I ever met that said they didn't like Ray Charles was #94. But, he didn't like anybody but Luke the Drifter.

I hear you Peterman. I turned off my radio in the 90's. I went silent for a long time.
I finally learned a little computer stuff and found YouTube. I was looking up the old stuff, at first.
I got bored. Then I started looking in the YouTube attic and found lots of good music.
It does take some time.

I started hearing the same complaints from other "older" people. I started an email list to send out music.
I have eclectic tastes, so cover a large variety. From Rockabilly to Symphonic Metal. Violins to Bagpipes.
Send me an email and I'll put you on my list.


There is plenty of good music out there, just not on the radio.

Doo Wop is gone, but old school rock and roll is alive and well.

Lots of Rockabilly and Swing offshore.

Sweden, Russia, Netherlands and a few hold outs here in the US.

USA



Scotland Notting Hillbillies




Ireland Darrell Higham



Sweden This is a great band.




Sweden Another good band




Netherlands, Good swing band and great singer



Croatia, Surf guitar. Really good original music from this band.



Japan, the 5678's Lots of old songs in the list on the right






A few I have sent out on my newsletter for people who can't find good music.
Most of what I send out is no older than the 90's. Some old stuff for history.
getting ready to send out some Mills Bros., Jim Reeves, Dean Martin with some
new Canadian smooth singers.

Music appreciation,
Itsa complicated game..



Everyone's trying to bend the generas and shit.



BTW I like The Heavy, have you heard Elbow?



When it comes down to it, give me some good old Ska or Reggae.

How come?

Nobody - even Peterman (and he seems to be the oldest 'cept for me ) has mentioned Bill Haley and the Comets

Some good stuff, all.


But, I have to say that though these guys do sound good, I am not sure they have done justice to what was possibly Elvis' greatest song.

Music changed so fast with the rock and roll invasion that even five years in age can make a big difference in the music experience/background. I think I'm about the same as Peterman. I was 12 in 1960 so my single digit years was early R&R and I wasn't paying much attention. My folks listened to country so my R&R was gotten from Ed Sullivan and Ricky Nelson on the Ozzie and Harriet shows. Five yrs younger than me and your early teens are ruled by Beatles, folk, early Motown. Five yrs older and you have more big band, doo wop, boogey woogey, and the early rock influence.

I was just starting to drive farm trucks and would listen thru that old tinny single speaker. By then R&R had died. It wasn't just the Big Bopper, Buddy Holly, Valens crash. Little Richard got religion and left. The Wildman married a 13 yr old and was ostracized. Chuck Berry went to jail for something. Elvis went to the Army. Lots of big hits to early R&R.

Early 60 was beseiged with psuedo rock. Bubble Gum music just like now. The saving grace was early Surf Guitar. Link Wray and Dick Dale then a plethora of band the Ventures being the most successfurl.

Beach Music and Folk came in then the Beattles. Finally R&B and Motown made it to Idaho by mid/late 60's.

Now during all these goings on open radio was always anchored by singers like Frank, Peggy Lee, Dean, Perry Como, even Doris Day. That is now lacking with general radio. No historical perspective.

But Wait. There is a movement afoot for the old standards, although the standards are now mostly 60's songs, instead of Big Band songs.


Written by Willy Nelson, early 60's hit by Patsy Cline. Remember when country didn't have phony accents?





A Ray Charles hit from early 60's





A Paul McCartney song. Better than the original. Luscious voice, Rachel Price.

I've always said I was born 10-15 years too late in regards to music. Even as a teen I mostly listened to the 60-70s (some 50s) music. I hit the Big FOUR OH in five days, and I still listen to the 60s-70s music.
