It’s RAYS CHAT One Hundred & Four
I was listening to some of my Older records; OH I have some Greats!! OH YES; So!! For Our First Song Let us have a Great Singer that died young.
Sam Cooke a change is gonna come –1963
OH What a great loss His premature death was. Superb Singer.
Lets have another of his songs: But Which One??So many Greats??
How about this:
Sam Cooke – Unchained Melody 3.32
Just superb singing.. Miss You Sam.
OK: He wasn’t Folk. But Over the years There are a few singers I want to listen more than Sam. And lots of singers say It was SAM that influenced them. GREAT GUY. SAD LOSS.
BUT: there are lots of newer People that are making Lovely Music:
These next guys I Like a lot: Yes; I have mentioned then Before. But Listen to this!! ……It’s a great song.
Have You Ever Seen The Rain – Music Travel Love (Grand Canyon)(Creedance Clearwater Revival 3.57
Thanks Guys!! Just a lovely Version; Sometimes it is amazing how a different Artist can perform the same Song and give it a completely different presentation: Just listen to this:
Willie Nelson ft Paula Nelson have you ever seen the rain 4.35
Well there you are Two versions of the same song.. and I love them both. Which Do You choose?
And then I had one of those great things happen.. Diane introduced me to a NEW Singer. A Lady I had not heard before; and I do like her. So I think will share her with you so you can decide it She is going on Your list of “Want to hear again?”
Put In: Heidi Talbot – If You Stay 3.00
Yes, I am sure I will be playing More of Heidi. Nice find.
And Do you Remember This Oldie?: This was BIG in His day. Put In: Marty Robbins – Cool Water 3.12 Yes : That was a real blast from the past
OK: Let’s have a real change. This is one of my Most favourite Songs.. And this is sung by the guy that wrote it with a background of really lovely Irish scenery: Put in: Beautiful Country Folk Music! Best Love Song! Most Romantic Love Songs! Top Irish Celtic Covers 4.02
And!! Where will I go from here? Well You know that there is a Great singer that I really think is one of THE BEST. Yes It’s Ian Again. Here He is singing a real nice Gentle song: Put In: Lights of Laramie – Ian Tyson 3.26 I do think Ian was one of the Very Best singers EVER.
And I found this: Oh So gentle Song he recorded in the later stages of his life: It’s Just a simple a backing with a bunch of kids.. I love this. Put in: Ian Tyson – A Song for Spirit 4.28 I could listen to more of Ian. I Think He really was one of the Greatest. If you like Ian Tyson.. There is Lots out there for you listen to. He recorded a Great catalogue of Songs..
NOW How do I follow that? Well it’s got to be something gentle and it’s about time we had a Lady sing for us? And I know just the one.Linda Ronstadt Put in. Desperado (2025 Remaster) 3.31 Great older Song. That got a lot of plays in it’s day.
And Now another Blast from the Past , This goes way back . I wonder? Do you Remember it ?. I was luckyenough to see hear Donovan in the early days of his career. And even at (I think: He was 19) He Really was Good. See how you like this: Put in: Donovan & Crystal Gayle – Catch The Wind 2.56 A Great Blast from the Past. Still sounds Real good.
And from one Gentle Singer; To One of the Best ever Gentle singers.. Who often wrote his own songs: This is one of John Denver Songs that is not as well known as many I have mentioned in the past. But Good Song. Enjoy.
John Denver- The Wings That Fly Us Home 4.15
I started by saying I had been searching my Old recordings…
and as you may guess I Do have quite a few of the Ian Campbell Folk Group: and: this Song by Brian is very worth listening to.
Dirty Old Town Ian Campbell Group2.40
One of the Great Songs
And We have arrived at yet another Last Song:
Remember found a Guy I had never heard of that I Really liked.. ~A real find for me. I loved this gentle way of singing, and I like the way he sang this song Which I had NEVER Heard before.. So I Hope that you will enjoy this. I like it a lot.
Mickey Newbury – – Angeline. wmv 5.15.
