Thanks for that....Laura was well "before my time" it's just a tune I like.Sounds very good but a bit before my time. But you play very well.
Oh i see, it's a very nice tune,of course we did have a small record player as well as the gramophone player. I was influenced by my brothers at the start. One liked the Beatles and the other liked the Rolling stones as well as others, they watched Top of the Pops....Laura was well "before my time" it's just a tune I like.
Ive heard his music tooI've mentioned my interest in vintage pop, jazz and Motown, but there are other eras, like the seventies that appeal to me. Scanning my LPs, there's Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, Bread, Robert Palmer, Fleetwood Mac, Carole King and several more. But I was particularly fond of Hall & Oates. Daryl Hall has written some great songs.
There's a lot of videos on YouTube of "Live From Daryl's House," where he and invited guests sing his and their songs, as well as they did twenty or thirty years ago.
Here he is singing a long-time favourite with the young singer Rumer.
Lots of other well known guests.
Lots more favourites on there.
Never really fond of the Beatles, but I like this this Scandi girl's version
So I taught myself to busk it (and the guitar solo is so easy play)
Today's artists(?) try to hide their lack of talent with outrageous performances. Look at the singers from the past on Youtube and you'll notice (or not notice) the lack of props. They simply stand in there and sing.I did like Karen Carpenter.
I liked the composition of Natalie Cole's song, the "question and answer" format with the participation of the two female backing singers.
No fancy outfits, just a, "come as you are" effect, but great voices and excellent harmonisation.
Is that like a genre' called full note jazz?I may have posted this before, or it maay have been on one of the several music messageboards I read and post on. It's an mp3 track I made from an LP I bought as a teenager in 1958.
I put it on YouTube, (lots of positine messages) it amazes me the number of hits a mostly unknow tune, played by a mostly unknown jazz guitarist has got, over 20,000.
The backing comes in after the first chorus.
