It’s RAYS CHAT One Hundred & Three
I was just wandering in YOU TUBE and found a tribute to
Paul Simon.. which I had not seen before..
And as it was always one of my most loved of Pauls music:
I thought You might like it:
James Taylor & Alison Krauss – The Boxer: Paul Simon Tribute 3.10
And then I had one of those things happening: I found a guy I had never heard of before.. Yes: New to me.
Here He is with Just a simple gathering of friends:
and THE guy sings this:
Mickey Newbury – Sweet Memory 1.51
I like that: OH! What a find…
This is just a simple live recording, perfectly sung.
I liked this: Just gorgeous singing..
I really can’t believe I had never heard of this guy..
Well I will be listening for more of him for sure.
He died just age 62 in 2002.
And: Oh HOW have I not heard of this guy??
WOW!! He is Great.
Just listen to the simply way he sings this.
Mickey Newbury : What Will I do 3.39
That is just SO Good.
AND: I have a found him singing a really Superb song.
Which; He sings wonderfully. He sang this near the end of his life and it is just so simple and SO GOOD.
AND: I am going to save it for the farewell song.
Yes you’ll have to wait!! But will be worth it.
Now: How the Heck am I going to follow THAT?!!!
Well: I think a complete change of Mood:
Change of Instrument: EVERYTHING:
And let’s have a New Folk Song: Let’s see what YOU TUBE suggests
Passenger | The Way That I Love You (Official Video) 2.54
Yes: quite liked it.. and some nice videos shots with it.
You Tube seems to rate Passenger, as if I ask for The best New Folk Songs.. it comes Up with Passenger…
(I’m Not so sure???) What Do you Think??
And still with NEW!!
I found this strange new song, …No sure What to think??
It is different.. VERY DIFFERENT.. I’m not sure about it??
Really is Different: See What YOU think?
Teflon Sega – Lonely and Free (lyric video) 3.34
YES it is New
And Well it is Different. Somehow Strange; BUT, I quite like it. Sort of don’t want it to end.. Intrigued!! Bit Strange..

VERY DIFFERENT: What Did you think??
And whilst we are on Songs that are Very Different: I wonder what you think of this song by Lewis Capaldi – one of the Newer Guys:
Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Loved 3.52
Well it’s a lot different to “Wild Rover”.
Saying that: YES I reckon I would like to have an Oldie now:
And one Guy I have always rated as one of the Very BEST
is Ian Tyson. He goes back a long way!!
And I have found a song of his that I had never heard before!! YES.. a real find for me, I have always rated Ian’s gentle style; and I do Like thisVERY MUCH: I find myself Singing it
Ian Tyson Springtime in Alberta 3.51

Ian still has my Top Marks:
Lovely Gentle!! Oh YES This is definitely Me.

But got injured in a Rodeo fall..
And turned to writing songs And singing them..
and He wrote and sang this: One of THE BEST EVER SONGS.

How they have matured Oh so wonderfully.
Oh That was So Good.. Now to keep the mood.. here is another
song from that period: Yes a real blast from the past
