No Dear…it’s Not ME that’s 101!!
It’s My Chat is 101:
Still: We Can’t meet in our Folk Club: And I know So Many of US: Are So missing THE FOLK CLUB. So Much: I just hope I can bring you some memories of Happier Days with My Music Selections:
So Where to start?: It is Officially Autumn
So Put this in:
Eva Cassidy – Autumn Leaves 4.55
Oh that was Good: But How Do I follow That?:
Well: Ed Sheeran also has a Song called AUTUMN LEAVES
Autumn Leaves – Ed Sheeran 3.32
I just Got to say: EVA WINS For Me. BUT, ED Got some real
Write-Ups for this Song; and His Gentle Guitar work.
And Now for a Real Oldie; a vintage Singer Who was always a Top favourite of mine; way back from 1950’s.
Jo Stafford, Autumn Leaves (1950) 2.34
Yes real vintage: When THAT was As She Sang it. (No Editing) in those days. Oh Joe was just GREAT.
Now just listen to Jo sing this:
“MOONLIGHT IN VERMONT” JO STAFFORD (BEST HD) 3.07
Remember: ONE TAKE!! WOW!! What a Singer, And some real good Orchestration work.
Oh those Oldies:. We should Not forget how good some of them
Were/Are. There are a lot of those Great Guys (No longer with Us);
That have left Great songs for US to listen to;
See what you think of this from a long time ago?.
This guy is still alive.. Is a GREAT Favourite of mine;
Ian Tyson Cowboys Don’t Cry. 3.30
Superb Singer; and He wrote many of his songs himself:
I always want to hear more Of Ian. And this is one of the very best He ever recorded: And Remember He Wrote it as well.
Ian Tyson – Someday Soon 3.45
This is one of My TOP Favourites of ALL Times;
And; NO One Sings it Better than Ian himself.
Now a change of mood.. Something Gentle.. This is an Old Roy Orbison Song.. But listen what it sounds like as a Guitar SOLO:
Ricky King – California Blue 4.00
Good Song.. One of Roy Orbisons best: OK NOT FOLK..
But Great to listen to.
And: I have some Gentle melodies to keep thatsoothing gentle Mood going.. Memories of Happier days when you could maybe have lazy days on some lovely Greek island.
Oh Memories: And I have the Perfect Music to remind Us of gorgeous days; now just Memories.
Perigali – Mikis Theodorakis 4.07
But We are Drifting… Let Us get back to chatting about Folk and where the future will lead us?? In Rays Chat Number 84: I played you New Guy called CALUM SCOTT.
and said I would be wanting to hear him again… and so
Put this in:
Calum Scott & Ilse DeLange – You Are The Reason | Live bij Radio 358 (2018)3.28
That was good for me. What Did You Think??
That was Something NEW. .Now Let’s have Something Older.
AND: This is a rather Special recording from earlier days.
It is Joni Mitchell. Singing Her Own Song..
But much slower than usual..
And WOW!! It is good.
Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now(HD) 5.29
That is just GREAT: And: That is VERY Difficult to Follow:
But: I do know another newer lady with a gorgeous voice.
Who I feel sure would be just SO good at filling this spot.
Katie Meluha My Love 3.35
Just beautifully sung
Oh Thanks Katie
That Gentle song makes me think of another Lady with a gorgeous voice.. She was: One of the best of the Lady FOLK Singers:
Always So Good to listen to: But: Sadly, No longer with us:
Listen to this gentle song.
Eva Cassidy – Nightbird 6.17
Eva was one of the GREATEST.
And: That is So Difficult to follow: We need something gentle;
I think this might be what we need…Just Gentle Piano Music.
No not Folk. But this guy is just Magic atpiano playing
ERNESTO CORTAZAR – Mi Amor por ti 4.44
Now; Some gorgeous Music: One song has kept Coming Back to Me; since First Played it to you in RAYS CHAT 81.
I Just love this Oh So Gentle recording: And. So I am going to End with it. This guy is one of the Worlds Greatest Guitarist..
and his gentle playing is just Magic for me.
So: Maybe you should go sit in your favourite chair and relax, with Maybe with a glass of wine?? And just sink into this gentle music:
RY . CANCION MIXTECA. 4.17
That is Total Gorgeous .. I hope that it Helpedbring some Happiness to YOU To Help cope the cares of the World:.
