"The Who's Pete Townshend always recognised his musical debt and inspiration to sound pioneer Terry Riley, who inspired the way he used..."--comment section from above... Oof...I'm sure I connected the two, though I guess I did so unconsciously (my conscious mind falters oftentimes (seems))...

I had liberty in Cyprus while in the Navy...though it could have been Crete, I can't precisely recall...(too much ouzo, possibly).

Concerning "Una notte da impazzire" above......................wow that sounds quite a bit like "Saturday Night Fever", esp. the intro (altho that's probably mostly because there's no 'talking' yet). Which brings to mind the burning question.........."has anyone ever done a "talking disco" (a la the talking blues)". This may be the closest - but likely I'm forgetting something, or was (blissfully?) unaware. Don't 'hate' that, but it's also not something I'd want to hear often. Must say the cig he's holding makes him look oh so manly. On top of the leather jacket, of course.

Good, old music never gets old. (?) Anyway, I tried to see if William Shatner had any "disco" songs, guaranteed to be spoken word. That took me down a dark path. Do you have any idea how many albums he has? My ears a scarred.

This is pretty hot, imo. First selection especially, but pretty good throughout. Skip ahead to the one at 32:16 for a second dose if you must, tho. Somewhat hypnotic. Thanks for this to "Folk Alley" last night on NPR. Produced by Daniel Lanois.

I came across this song several time in some serials. It really sounds perfect in romantic scenes. Though I have not personally verified, one of the comments says this: "The Lyrics from this Song is 900 years old poem from Omar Khayyam (1048-1131)."

Just watched this live. She said that this song is 800 years old and no doubt it will make it to the thousand. Wow.

This video may be posted to some other threads ("Folk music", "Even better live", "Interesting new music", etc) but I chose this one. After all it receives good comments from all around the globe.


It is a new addition to my playlist. I ignored it for a long time (my playlist already includes twenty or so songs of the same band).

I caught the Gaelic Storm in a tiny venue this past weekend. They were pretty much as I expected: a high energy, talented, and very fun band playing traditional tunes and a few songs of their own composition. I am linking a couple that are representative. The first seems typical of their stage performance (they have a new fiddle player, though):

One More Day Above the Roses

The second is their lockdown/isolation/Covid compilation. Cleverly done. (Apparently the fiddle player didn't get the memo that the background must look like a pub. She opted for wine bar vibe)

In the first video, the one from the House of Blues in Chicago, I can't decide whether the guitarist looks most like Steve Bannon or John Cowan; quite a bit like both - until the camera gets closer.  

The mix on that is very curious.  The harp seems totally muted, or dead, and at times, the fiddle seems likewise.  Both those in favor of the whistle. The thought occurs to me that it's been remixed, or overdubbed/lip-synced, or something.  I don't *really* think lip-synced, but the mix sure has been fiddled with (pun very much intended). 

Not being critical of the band in general, just sayin'.

I had the same impression. He has a live mic, but no sound comes out of the harmonica -- it was totally audible during the concert. 

Their live mixing was a bit odd, too (as happens in live shows in small venues). Sometimes the featured instrument would be kept in background. Of course, that wasn't a problem for the drums and bagpipes. 

During the show, the fiddler and piper came into the audience and played the entire song from there. When they returned to the stage, the lead singer implored the audience the "keep that damned piper, but we need the fiddler back;" a bit ironic considering that they've had about ten different fiddlers during their tenure as a band.
