Ray’s chat 70!
It’s RAYS CHAT Seventy
Here We are well into September, and we have Autumn to look forward to!! When leaves start to fall, Cue for Song?.
BUT: First: Something from the past: to start us off with:
I have found a very ancient 45 rpm Record I thought you might like!!. Put in’
Come September The Famous Song 2.28
OK Not Folk:
But a Great tune that’s got your feet tapping.
Remember the tune?? I had it in RAYS CHAT 69 played on the Sitar?
BUT: Yes, it is time to get back to Folk. And it’s a while since We had Donovan sing: . I first saw him when he was 19.. And He still is singing at 73.
Donovan – Catch The Wind 1974 2.37
Yes I guess Wind is something We will start to have to get used to in September. See how you like this:
Kansas – Dust in the Wind (Official Video) 3.19
I really liked that:
And: over 13 Million people had viewed it!!
And; another song with Wind in it’s title. I have not heard for a long time: Put in:
Wind in the Willows- Blackmore’s night 4.1
Ok: We are on Wind Songs.. and there is just one song that really hit the mark when it was written.
It was a new breed of Folk Songs that brought the Youth into the Folk Clubs. Oh I am sure that You know it;
BUT: There are Oh So many versions. I have listened to so many and I give you this the original: Put in:
Blowin in The Wind- Bob Dylan 2.47
BUT: Enough of the Windy Songs.
Well Maybe make room for: Just one more as I have found Kate Wolf singing a Wind Song.
“The Wind Blows Wild” – Kate Wolf 5.46
SO: Away with Wind Songs. September can still have Sunny days: And I have found some songs out of the History book..
That have SUN in them.
Some of These songs I doubt if any of you have EVER heard:
Try this: Here’s a song to help you remember those Summer Hot Sunny Days. Put in:
A Summer Song Chad and Jeremy 2.40
This was new to me:
No!! I had never heard it before.. a nice Gentle song; and No Wind in it. And whilst We are on Oldies about Sun:
I found this real Blast from the Past which was also another new one to me:
The Carter Family – “Keep on The Sunny Side 2.04
Oh The Carter Family !!
More History: They were right at the start of the American Folk revival.
And another real oldie: I found this:
We’ll Sing in the Sunshire Gale Garnett 2.57
AND: I remember this NEXT ONE very well. Yes this was a real Hit, It was on the radio oh so many times.. Good song.
Terry Jacks – Seasons in The Sun 1974 3.16
Oh!! YES! Glorious Oldies!! And now for the last of my Blasts from the Past. This really was a Great Hit.. Great Record.
OH YES: I was a Walker Brothers fan. So Sad Scot Walker is no more. Just listen one more time to his glorious voice
Walker Brothers – The Sun ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore 1965
Super Recording nearly 5 Million had listened to this When I looked.
Oh BUT I have more sunshine songs for you, Put this in:
Laid Back – Sunshine Reggae 4.15
You just Got to Love that sound.
And I have found a RECORD; I had not heard before. YES I know the Group: THE BROTHERS FOUR: They were a big name Group. Sort of rivals to the Kingston Trio.
But I had never heard this Recording.
It starts with:
“Try to Remember”; goes to “Greensleeves”; and then to “Strong Winds”.. BUT: You really MUST keep on listening
And you’ll hear lots more GREAT SONGS.
I Had a Great time listening to this: It’s FUN.. AND GOOD.
It really is a compilation of Great Old Folk Songs.
GREAT RECORD: LIKE a Vocal History of Folk Songs
This is a GREAT find.
And there are songs I had not heard before.. OH Yes: DO; find the time to listen to this recording: It takes nearly three parts of an hour: But it’s worth it. Do Listen.
THE BROTHERS FOUR GREATEST HITS – TRY TO REMEMBER (1966) 41.47
And to finish. A sound of the SUN.. I found this ! Just A guy playing Steels Drums in London. And He is just INCREDIBLE!!.
LONDON STREETMUSIC from STEEL DRUMS 5.42.
This guy is total MAGIC.
So; We move into October Next time.
I wonder where I’ll wander to NEXT?
I hope you have enjoyed this journey Into the Past.
