Thanks for the links, I will check them out.

My favourite Poco track: Rose of Cimarron. Love the orchestral arrangement on that.
Funny, I was going to post that but figured it's their most well known one then found the other, it's hard to choose Poco tracks as alone they don't usually sound like much but hearing a string of them one can really appreciate them.

New Riders of the Purple Sage - On My Way Back Home. A bit wimpy maybe (although I do like the peddle steel work), but it always gives me goosebumps as it was used in the 70s as the closedown track for a certain offshore radio station that I listened to (a lot). (And still do for that matter).
Never heard that, I only know the first two or three albums. I noticed in the comments section mention of "Mi Amigo", any connection to your handle? Sound like it may be a NRPS song.

BTW2, isn't that Jackson Browne playing with the Eagles on Midnight Flyer? I know he was very close to the band in terms of song-writing, etc.
I was wondering who that was.....

Yeah, well Mi Amigo was the name of a ship that Radio Caroline used in the 60s and 70s. I was just a spotty teenage (fanatic) listener back in the 70s, but got to know some of the folks involved later on. They're still going now (on land, although do they still have ther last ship) and they play a pretty wide range of music that you might enjoy.

So Deep Purple are coming to town again. I decided to just watch this Ian Paice drum solo on YT instead and save the $$$. I must be getting old.

Actually even I as a former (bad) drummer generally find drum solos boring, but I have to admit that the one-handed stuff (if you'll pardon the expression) from around 2 minutes in is quite amazing (dude).

Oh - didn't know.

DP have a deep place in my musical heart, as does Steve Morse, though in a totally separate place.

As much as an a-hole Blackmore was at the time, DP are just not the same without him. Or Jon Lord.

Just messing around on youtube and came across these guy, haven't heard them in years: The Verve

Bitter Sweet Symphony: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lyu1KKwC74
Its a great video, it me walking to to work, I sing as I walk along too, and a great song, great lyrics. "Cant change my silence, melody and violence".
Lucky Man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MH6TJU0qWoY
Crap video but great song "Happiness, more or less..."


Oh and Radiohead

Creep: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFkzRNyygfk

Oh, and Audioslave, ex Soundgarden
Like a Stone:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QU1nvuxaMA

or The Cramps
Goo goo muck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXTJhnc9xns
I've been listening o the Cramps since I was like 15 years old. Pure psychobilly, dirty music that sounds like it from 50s movie

Oh, don't get me wrong, they have a 'deep' place in my heart too - Smoke on The Water was de rigueur back in my school band days. I just don't feel a great urge to see them. As you say, without Blackmore and Lord it wouldn't be the same, although at least they still have Gillan and Paice.

Sounds like I'm talking about a football team (not likely in my case).

I love rockabilly/psychobilly

The Wild Roosters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGFVY8qhE7g

I play guitar, but my band is in Belgium, brother on drums and mate on bass. And three chicks as backing.

But mostly we play roackabilly stuff, like above link, Stray Cats, Cramps etc.

Here's That Rainy Day (late show live)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFac_omWrBg

Maybe I should have saved
those left-over dreams
funny, but here's that rainy day!

Here's that rainy day
they told me about
and I laughed at the thought
that it might turn out this way!

Where is that worn-out wish
that I threw aside,
after it brought my lover near?

Funny how love becomes
a cold rainy day
funny, that rainy day is here!

Funny how love becomes
a cold rainy day
funny . . .
that rainy day is here!

this performance will not make sense to people who don't know johnny carson and david letterman, the friendship they shared, as well as the wonderful tonight show.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9i6A6LGwa4

so... by way of wikipedia:

(Johnny) Carson had no guests on his final episode of The Tonight Show on May 22, 1992, which was instead a retrospective show taped before an invitation-only studio audience of family, friends, and crew.

More than fifty million people tuned in for this finale, which ended with Carson sitting on a stool alone at center stage, similar to Jack Paar's last show. He said these final words in conclusion:

“ And so it has come to this: I, uh... am one of the lucky people in the world; I found something I always wanted to do and I have enjoyed every single minute of it. I want to thank the people who've shared this stage with me for thirty years. Mr. Ed McMahon, Mr. Doc Severinsen, and you people watching. I can only tell you that it has been an honor and a privilege to come into your homes all these years and entertain you. And I hope when I find something that I want to do and I think you would like and come back, that you'll be as gracious in inviting me into your home as you have been. I bid you a very heartfelt good night."

He rarely appeared elsewhere after retiring, providing... a silent cameo on Late Show with David Letterman where he delivered a Top 10 List and sat in Dave's chair for a minute.

In 2005, after Carson's death, it was revealed that he had made a habit of sending jokes to Dave Letterman which Letterman would then sometimes incorporate into his monologues. The January 31, 2005, episode of the Late Show with David Letterman, which featured a tribute to Carson, began with a monologue by Letterman made up entirely of jokes written by Carson himself after his retirement.

In an onscreen eulogy to Carson in 2005, David Letterman said that every talk show host owes his livelihood to Johnny Carson during his Tonight Show run.

In 2011, the last Carson Tonight show was ranked #10 on the TV Guide Network special, TV's Most Unforgettable Finales

Thanks for posting all that, I will work my way through them.

At the risk of sounding like the old guy that I am, they don't have people like Carson or shows like his any more. They were the best of that genre, and broke a lot of new ground we now take for granted. A lot of people's careers were made on and because of that show. (I'll post something separately).

I only wish the Carson shows were on torrents - I'd watch them all.

Ok now this is really cool, I've never seen it on YT before just now:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUfk1dS64aM#t=0m25s

It's basically Linda Rondstadt's entire back catalog (over 9 hours!), with a mechanism to zoom right into the album and songs. Though I do like a few of her songs and she's a great singer, this is more about the YT function.

I hope more of these come out.....if you find others (besides the same poster's library) please post them here.
