I fold, espcially since I'm pretty sure that's Guy Clark over there on the far right. That's like pulling an ace from up your sleeve. :P

Guy Clark - Randall Knife ...the ultimate Father/Son resolution song.

Dry your eyes.

Pretty much the same licks as his "Let Him Roll".

The folky stuff got me remembering Sandy Denny. I remember I listened to her lots. I had bought an album, never heard of her before, and loved it. Wish I could remember what album. Some history and tunes at the following link, her life cut short at age 31. Remembering you Sandy Denny. Love your voice still as I listen to it online :)

That certainly is Guy Clark.....that's three pretty fair songwriters on stage at once.

Here's another old favorite of mine, Delbert McClinton singing Every Time I Roll The Dice.

Blew it with the Tapestry CD.


"Tapestry" was, at the time, the fastest selling album in history, only surpassed five years later by "Frampton Comes Alive".

...and the best song on the album and still hot as hell today was....

"Smackwater Jack"

(the fella's will appreciate it for the backup girls, if nothing else ;) )

Tapestry is definately one of my very top all time favorites. It never gets old for me :) I'll have to pick up my own album ... well, CD, one day soon when flush. Actually a CD player (not using my computer) would be great too. New Years Resolution ... get a CD player and start collecting CD's before the end of 2010 hopefully :)

I love Carole King's voice and songs. Strong, clear, and good felt-songs.

Mary Fahl has a self-described sound that is just "on the edge of creepiness", but I think Loreena McKennitt gets it better. Also, her themes are darker.
Relevance: Viewers of the film "Soldier" will recall her "Night Ride Across the Caucasus" (or maybe just Connie Nielson ;) )

Night Ride Across The Caucasus

The Bonny Swans (VERY dark)*

Mystic's Dream


*A farmer there lived in the north country
a hey ho bonny o
And he had daughters one, two, three
The swans swim so bonny o
These daughters they walked by the river's brim
a hey ho bonny o
The eldest pushed the youngest in
The swans swim so bonny o

Oh sister, oh sister, pray lend me your hand
with a hey ho a bonny o
And I will give you house and land
the swans swim so bonny o
I'll give you neither hand nor glove
with a hey ho a bonny o
Unless you give me your own true love
the swans swim so bonny o


Sometimes she sank, sometimes she swam
with a hey ho and a bonny o
Until she came to a miller's dam
the swans swim so bonny o
The miller's daughter, dressed in red
with a hey ho and a bonny o
She went for some water to make some bread
the swans swim so bonny o


Oh father, oh daddy, here swims a swan
with a hey ho and a bonny o
It's very like a gentle woman
the swans swim so bonny o


They placed her on the bank to dry
with a hey ho and a bonny o
There came a harper passing by
the swans swim so bonny o


He made harp pins of her fingers fair
with a hey ho and a bonny o
He made harp strings of her golden hair
the swans swim so bonny o
He made a harp of her breast bone
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And straight it began to play alone
the swans swim so bonny o


He brought it to her father's hall
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And there was the court, assembled all
the swans swim so bonny o
He laid the harp upon a stone
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And straight it began to play lone
the swans swim so bonny o


And there does sit my father the King
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And yonder sits my mother the Queen
the swans swim so bonny o
And there does sit my brother Hugh
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And by him William, sweet and true
the swans swim so bonny o
And there does sit my false sister, Anne
with a hey ho and a bonny o
Who drowned me for the sake of a man
the swans swim so bonny o

Now I'll listen to some more of the songs you guys posted ....



Sandy Dennis compared favorably, but erroneously (IMHO) with Steeleye Span* (which is to say, Maddy Prior). Loreena McKennitt, above, does much to capture what Steeleye Span began in 1969. Prior was probably the best of the female minstrel singers and they did some pretty dark themes themselves. Search Youtube for their versions of "Dark Eyed Sailor" and "The Blacksmith". And they incorporated a lot of electric instruments that somehow disappeared into the songs, but add power.

I found and listened to both, and really liked the singing and the music. Loved the violins sounds and timings!!! ;)

Actually as I was listening to them I was really reminded of a lot of Flying Mountain songs and sounds. I sure wish they had never ended their band as they were hot. They really fueled their audiences and packed The Joint whenever they played. High energy and extremely creative with their music and everyone dancing in their seats if no room to stand, which there never was when they played. Don't know why they ever stopped and imagine if they'd kept it up and evolved they'd be totally amazing. I guess it takes a lot, on a lot of levels, to make a band and keep it alive.

When running my last minute errands this afternoon I used my "Angry Chick Rocker" playlist. :)

Lone Justice - "Shelter"
Avril Lavigne & The Goo Goo Dolls - "Iris"
Josie Cotton - "Jimmy loves Maryann"
Pat Benatar - "We live for love" & "Invincible'
The Motels - "Shame"
Bonnie Tyler - "Here she comes"
Tina Turner - "It's only love"
Curve - Coast is clear"
Dusty Springfield - "Shout" & "People get ready"
The Donna's - "Take it off"
Rickie Lee Jones - "The Real End"
Sarah Mclachlan & Delerium - "Silence'
Diana Ross & The supremes - "Reflections" (Chine Beach Version), "Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" & "My World Is Empty Without You"

In about an hour (PST) I need to switch to my "Party like I'm drunk and stupid" playlist. :lol:

Sandy Dennis was the actress ... Sandy Denny the singer. Am I right? ;)

Well, if the theme appeals, then there's always....

Velvet Green

Anderson was so born in the wrong century.
