Thanks for the news of the newest Ry Cooder record.  By not falling for the rock star hype when he was young, he's spent a lifetime making great music.

A rather neglected thread here, as actually all else too as i have have my first real vacation for more than 25 years, and the hottest summer up here for some 250 years, tells a bit about how much fun we have up here if we have registered and kept track of daily temperatures for that timespan

This is rather new, a few weeks, not on record in Sweden yet as far as i have found out, but please, give this guy a listen, William Crighton, cousin to Crocodile Dundee, i think, this is very, very far from bad, I think this is good enough to fill the  streets in a collective thank You to this guy.

So, yet another new name/musician to follow, makes the task of growing old far easier, also keeps the reason for buying more records alive.

This we will see live come friday October 5:

Will play in Falkenberg, a small town some 100 km south of here, please check this guy out, Levi Parham.

So Yet another of my heroes, one of the greatest ever here in scandinavia, put the Shure SM58 on the shelf and went on the last journey.

About two hours ago Kim Larsen passed away, after a long time of illness.

Together with Gasolin he wrote scandinavian rock history and the last tour 1978 resulted in a live record called Gycklernes Aften, danish and meaning Night of the Jesters.

There is still the music thou, this from the last tour, and this one, made it outside Scandinavia:

Recorde live 78, not the best sound nor really synced, but so what.

This is pure magic, from 1975,  but in Danish:

The last tour with Gasolin was 1978, 40 years ago, Kim Larsen did not quit then, he toured all through the years and played his last show here this summer.

With the new band Kjukken it was not that far from Gasolin, different sound yes but still good plain rock´n roll.

This some years ago:

This just a few moments ago, this summer, in Danish but anyone listening to music will hear the magic from this guy at 72, just three months before the end.

Very strange, it seems we have not talked about Doug Sahm? At least as I can remember, wich is not that much.

Actually performed, at age 11, with Hank Williams, on stage ( I wonder how many can put that in their CV).

1969 this was released by Mercury records, SRS67115:



Here the giant 1965 hit She´s about a mover is included and the title track also, imo, very good.

The band lineup is hard to beat, Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers, Jack Barber, Frank Morin, and Johnny Perez.

Live this band was something very special, Augie Meyers Vox organ is magic, pure musical magic.

There is no way, whatsoever, that I can listen to this and sit still.

The Swedish music audience, not that small even thou we´re a small country, in population, not in geographical size (on a European scale, not African)
fell in love with this guy early in his career.

Looks like the feelings were mutual.

5 Years later, 1974, another odd record was released, on Warner BS2810, still Doug Sahm but new caracters in the band, (called Tex Mex trip)





Strange, who do we see on drums? Doug Clifford, and on Bass? Stu Cook, that would be half of Creedence, right?

Actually not as good as the real set up (Sir Douglas Quintet was what I meant) but still good, did not sell thou, not at all.

Some ok stuff here thou

Got a few Doug Sahm LPs and Mendocino really hits the spot for me.  An unsung hero of note.  Keep them coming! Credence were pop-tastic and what they could do in a three minute song never failed to impress.  What they could do when they spread out was a beauty to behold.  Both (IMHO) are bettered by Canned Heat (those first two albums are the bomb)

So, this little thread was started allmost 5 years ago, Febryary 16 2014, somewhere on the road, despite lousy maintenance, someone made the thread pink, a bit like getting a knighthood and not having a clue why that happened.

Started it out with a record by a giant behind the scenes, a fantastic producer and one of the members of Bob Dylans "Rolling Thunder Revue" band.

The self titled T-Bone Burnett record was preceeded by both the two Alpha band records, with David Mansfield and Steven Soles who also were included in the Rolling Thunder tour, the chronology of T-Bone Burnetts records is not totally clear but this was released 1983, or thereabout, some three years before the one we started with, still a very good record, and maybee a reason to look closer into what more he has done?

This is incredibly good:

Actually Ry Cooder is playing guitarr and slide on this record, consequently, You need this record.

Although they started 5 years ago, I didn´t have a clue, never heard about, until a few weeks ago about Mipso, latest and fifth record released this spring.

So yet another act to follow and records to buy.

This is not bad, not at all.

Only someone utterly stupid, and brave, would do a cover of Guy Clark´s Dublin Blues, or maybe someone that could do it right.

this is why this thread is made a sticky.   :2thumbs:
never heard of mipso before, but they are really, really good. i suspect that Libby Rodenbough (fiddle, vocals) is actually really exceptional - tracks where she is front & centre just seem to come to life.

i see tyhat they are touring somewhere around your part of the world - will be in sweden in early december.
is it just me or have bitcoin people gone a bitquiet because its a bitdown? #bitter

It is strange, the musicians that You/I grew up with, listened to all through the Years have gone or are, as I, growing old, still thou there seems to be no end in the stream of new musicians and bands to follow and cling to in time of need or despair.

Maybe about time to take a look back again, not only new stuff I stumble over?

A totally magic song, still think this is one of the best renditions ever:

But going closer to the source, the reality behind, there is more to it, maybe more thruth?
