    Hit up this link here for 4-1/2 minutes of bliss -- Bonnie Raitt [/swoon] playing "Pride And Joy" at a tribute concert for Stevie Ray Vaughan. Especially catch her slide guitar solo about 2/3 of the way through.

    Side note: what got me thinking about Bonnie was that I was outside doing some yardwork and had cranked up the Blues digital music channel on the tube. Heard a song I didn't recognize and was sure it was Bonnie Raitt, but it turns out it was a singer named Reba Russell. Never heard of her, but her vocals sure fooled me into thinking it was Bonnie. Keep your ears open for her.

    Ever hear of a 'Theramin'? Real neat sounding instrument.

    SO COOL, one of the most unique and bizarre instruments, imo. The Polyphonic Spree has a theramin player that ROCKS(as much as one can on a theramin).

    The Hang Drum is another one of my faves

    OR for a creepy, amazing, celestial, one of a kind instrument, I offer this:

    Great links, folks! Love 'em!

    I was just watching last Friday night's episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on my DVR, and the musical guest was Robbie Dupree doing "Steal Away." Anyone remember him and the song? He wrote it in 1980, and it's a flagrant ripoff of the Doobie Brothers song "What A Fool Believes" written by Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins one year earlier, in 1979.
    Check 'em out.
    First, the Doobie Brothers, 1979, "What A Fool Believes."
    Then a year later, Robbie Dupree on the TV show "The Midnight Special" in 1980, "Steal Away."
    Ripoff or stunningly freakish coincidence? You be the judge.
    And you can see Robbie from last Friday night at this link.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    thanks for the tip on reba russell. what's really shocking to me is that they don't have a real solid web presence. their website is very weak in my opinion and yet i'm sure they wanna get the word out. maybe they just have a bad manager...

    Funny, I have a done surf version of Elenor Rigby using the bass riff from Pipeline. I've done it with another band, but not yet with Tikiyaki. One day. It's pretty cool.

    There are SO many surf bands in SoCal, and they all do pipeline. I think people bum out if we did that here...I DO love the original version of that song by The Chantays....so moody.

    Drummer Steve Moore is one terrific showman! I especially like the 'robot' moves about halfway through this 4:47 video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItZyaOlrb7E

    I am a HUGE fan of Bonnie. I probably feel about Bonnie that way you do about Jimmy . I was first introduced to her music way back in 1972. Late June to be exact........ It was the first time I ever heard the blues and I was completely blown away. She is still my #1 favorite - though I am partial to her old school stuff.

    Thanks for the heads up on Reba Russell - will definitely have to give her a closer listen.

    Jimmy may be at the top of my list, but Bonnie is close behind at #2.
    Hey, if Buffett fans are called Parrotheads, are Bonnie Raitt fans called Carrotheads?

    Default Paul McCartney "Please Please Me"

    Any Beatles fans? There are a lot of Beatles videos that come and go on YouTube. Just do a search and you'll find plenty.... vintage Beatles stuff from the old days, many solo stuff by the 4 members and even clips from the Beatles RockBand game that came out last year.

    Recently one of my favorite Beatles clips that I found is not by the Beatles, but by just Paul McCartney and his band from 2006. Here they play "Please Please Me," and sound just like and maybe even better than when the Beatles played this song live.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MWVo1fjRsQ

    The sound quality is very good for a YouTube video on this one.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    Fasten your seatbelts and watch this 1:48 video of some of the fastest guitar and mandolin picking on planet Earth.

    And here's another one that's 3:38 of Chris sizzling that mandolin!

    Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
    Heard the new CD at Borders yesterday and was surprised that someone today is sounding like the best of yesterday, rare indeed.
    Girl has a cool 60s style and sensibility with some serious emotive grit to her vocals, and her band/s are right on the money too. Best get down sound in a while.

    Here's a 60 cover that she makes her own. Not at all like most of what's on the new CD, but shows she can cover a lot of ground.
    Careful, it's a bit loud.

    New music with a nostalgic sound or look to it?

    Lately I've been enjoying the music of Caro Emerald.

    Back It Up (verson 1) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbK5yyn89IQ

    Back It Up (verson 2) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0kr1-CJv8I

    A Night Like This - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74LXx0wSqMI

    And for a more 60s' rock/r&b sound, Fitz & the Tantrums:

    L.O.V. (live) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZ_BZM0GrD0

    Breakin the Chains of Love - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cVRkeFYXWA

    enjoy!

    Here is the first solo CD from a student of mine. Very talented. He has worked with several bands prior to this - there are links to some of his past stuff. The 2nd song on this CD grew out of a project he did for my class.

    Hadn't CD shopped at Borders in a while (can't stand their racks), and even tho the selection was typically meager... I quickly found two unpassable deals of truly classic rock, being some live Allman Brothers/'70 with a great set list, for $13 and the must have (Neil Young) Crazy Horse 'Ragged Glory' for $7.

    Point is, there was surprisingly a lot of newly shelved stuff I could have just as easily walked out with and been happy. Check it out.
