its RAYS CHAT NINETY SIX
Hi There: I am missing seeing you at our Club. Oh So Very Much!
This Lock down is really changing everyone’s lives.
And I have had a lot of time to think; of my early days in Folk.
And certainly the one of the BEST things ever happened to me Was
meeting Ian Campbell and joining the JUG OF PUNCH
But that was all a very long time ago..
and there has been a lot of water going under that Bridge over Troubled waters, since then. And I have talked about many of the old days.
So I reckon we need to Hear some of the Newerguys: that are making new sounds. I asked YOU TUBE what was Best.. of the newer Folk Songs. and this was the answer
Passenger | The Way That I Love You (Official Video) 2,55
OK: I quite like “Passenger” BUT is it THE BEST????
I tried again.. and it came up with this:
James Blunt – Halfway feat. [Ward Thomas] 3.22
It seems this guy is One of the BIG New boys.
Well: All I can say is that reminded me of the 1950’s when Barn Dancing was all the go!! (more Memories!!)
BUT: I do like – Some of the New boys :
I Very Much Go for this guy
Callum Scott, Leona Lewis –You are The Reason (Duet Version) 3.16
Callum Was a Golden Buzzer Winner Award in BRITAINS GOT TALLENT. I look forward to hearing MORE Of him.
And YES: that’s real hard to Follow. He is good.
So: Let us hear two of the newer singers:
This is a duo that I have featured before: AND: I do like a lot;
So Lets listen to Birdy and Rhodes.
BIRDY + RHODES – Let it All Go [Official] 4.41
Yes I like them: and of course it is the Young who will make the FOLK of the future.
BUT; I am NOT forgetting there are Great songs right now;
And here is a Singer that I like a lot:
Alison Krauss & John Waite – Lay Down Beside Me 4.49
AND: Do you know: I had never heard THAT recording before. And YES; I really liked it.
As ever Alison is just so good to listen to: and those Harmonies are REALLY Somethings.. and then She Sang this:
ALISON KRAUSS – Dreaming My Dreams 4.24
Oh Yes.. Great Song: definitely one I will be hearing again. Thanks Alison.
But we need: The New Young guys:
AND: How do you fancy some pretty nifty Guitar Playing??
See How you like this:
Jacob Gurevitsch – Lovers in Paris – 0073 5.12
Sounds rather good to me.
Oh Yes: this is the kind of NEW guys I am VERY Happy to listen to. Some nifty guitar playing there.
I like this guy:
Let’s have another from him:
For Your Love | Jacob Gurevitsch | Spanish Instrumental Acoustic Guitar Music 6.12
And tell you what!! I am not even going to try to follow that..
I think a nice Gentle Duo would be good now..
and I know just the one:
Have You Ever Seen The Rain – Music Travel Love (Grand Canyon) (Creedance Clearwater Revival) 3.56
Then I found this:
Save Myself – Ed Sheeran [lyric] 3.54
Great Song writing.
And Then You Tube played me this:
I’m So Tired of it all 3.36
I really Like this Version
And I wonder if you remember this guy: He isfrom a long time ago:
He died in 2002.
Mickey Newbury…Some Memories Are Better Left Alone 6.04
He was a Great singer.
Let’s have another song from him.
“Sweet Memories” by Mickey Newbury…3.30
Oh YES: I am glad I remembered Mickey.
And towards the end of His Life He Recorded:what I think is the best Recordings: of THE AMERICAN TRILOGY..
IT IS So Simple and He really Sings it Superbly.
See What YOU think?
Mickey Newbury – An American Trilogy 3.59
Till next time Keep Smiling; and hope for that day when We can be together again
