    New Tunes on Youtube

    As a child of the 60s and 70s, I have enjoyed the Old Tunes on Youtube thread started by DragonLensmanWV. But my taste in music does not stop with the music I grew up with. So I thought I'd start one highlighting newer music and bands. The first video is an infectious song by The Black Keys called 'Lonely Boy':



    I highly recommend the album this song appears in - 'El Camino'. There is not a weak or bad song on it.

    There were two periods in time, in the history of western music, that were notable for composition and/or performance- the classical era, primarily the German composers from the mid 18th to early 19th century, and the Jazz era and its sub-genres (and its influence on R&B, R&R etc.) from the early to mid 20th century.

    Who knows when the next music explosion will occur, and how long the present drought will continue, but I doubt it will be in my lifetime. My opinion is not based on the fact that I experienced the last part of the second era, hence the music of my youth so to speak, but as a lifelong musician, instructed by child prodigy and big band guitarist Bill Crump, a 30+ year performing career starting at age 12, and by my love of music in general.

    I'll only post two pieces in this thread, suggesting how high the bar should be placed, and keep one eye open for everyone's contribution, enjoying the heck out of what you have to offer, that might be so powerful that it will bring tears to my eyes.

    Wes,

    I'm guessing you might enjoy this after listening to the guitarist above. Note the chin move at the end- not just flash- he just ran out of hands!



    For all-

    I've been following Stephanie Trick for about two years now. She wasn't able to play at this level one year ago.

    My hubby introduced me to Here Come the Mummies after hearing them on Bob & Tom. Must say that I have become a huge fan ever since. Love the grooves they put out, and the musicianship! One hell of a live show too!

    And if you are a person who likes to blend the old with the new, I really suggest the site http://www.livefromdarylshouse.com/welcome.html. It features Daryl Hall from Hall and Oates fame bringing assorted guests to his home to talk, cook and most importantly..make music together! Usually they will play a couple of classic Hall & Oates songs, some of the guests songs, and sometimes they will do oldies but goodies. Speaking of which.. here is what is now my favorite version of Heard It Through The Grapevine

    Not exactly brand new but it's wicked. And weird. There's more of his guy's stuff on a trucker documentary called Big Rig. And a bonus for you Canadians on the board- Buck 65 is from Mount Uniacke.

    OK, again NOT NEW but I'll bet this is new to anyone reading this thread. I listen to it whenever I'm out of coffee and need a jolt.

    This isn't that new, but optical 24/7's above video reminded me of this "cover"!



    Something from one of their newer albums.

    Nick Martellaro - Dizzy Miss Lizzy

    Sorry- I said I wouldn't interrupt, but this is too new for the other thread. Drums are synth, the rest is real, multitracked, rock & roll. Close your eyes and pretend part of J.L.'s soul has mixed with Nick's.

    Resurrecting an old thread. The Warning. 3 sisters from Monterey Mexico. There’s vid’s of them performing as teens on YouTube. All grown up, this year performing “More” in SD. The younger generation keeping hard rock alive.

    What’s old is new again. This song can have different meanings, depending on your stage of life. I thing it appropriate for youngin’s to sing this one…

    Young man sounds great! Well done!
    I often time hear things like real related to music. We recently did a show with the 4 Tops, and Otis Williams Temptations, the real Temps. 32-piece orchestra on stage. You know what thy had? Everything tracked! Background vocals included. They were fantastic. In their 80s now, they want that sound to be excellent, and so they use technology to help while they dance and entertain like few others! When I go out now, I don't carry a horn section unless the event allows for the budget! I have tracked every detail and take a small rhythm section with me, and we do small events with tracks alone in small rooms. The folks who love what we call Beach Music here in the Carolinas (60s and 70s R&B/Soul, Doo Wop and feel-good sounds) come to see us, and we do all we can, and after 50+ years they still bring us back! Is it real? It's what we do, and they always come back! For me to take the 3-piece horn section, full band, and lights and sound it gets expensive! That's the beauty of technology. Can I still play? Every single day! I'm attaching a photo from a recent show, with Mr. Knock on Wood, Eddie Floyd. 87 years old, and we did a great version of his Stax Hit I Ain't Never Found Me A Girl! Let him use that technology! And another with my early group from the 80s with the world's greatest Sax Player (not opinion, fact!) the one and only Maceo Parker! Last an impromptu show with Rock and Roll, and Vocal Group Hall of Famers, the Drifters at the Southeastern Opticians Conference when it still existed. In the president's suite! I'm proud to have played with some of the finest in the world, and one thing the real players do today to make a living, is use technology to its full benefit!

    It makes me happy to see this young man doing Dizzy Miss Lizzy. Many think it's a Beatles original. Nope, Larry Williams was an American rhythm and blues and rock and roll singer, songwriter, producer, and pianist from New Orleans, Louisiana. The Beatles were influenced by names like Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, and Elvis! Throughout their career, The Beatles expressed their love of R&B with heart-on-sleeve enthusiasm, infusing their songwriting with the rhythms and harmonies of Motown and Stax, people like Eddie Floyd! I am pleased he is so happy playing and singing, just look at that smile! Use the tools you have! I wish I could include a cut from our latest Classic Soul CD. It won't attach. 4 people. We did a number of originals, one that I included live horns and strings, because I wanted it to be "real." The trumpet player is well known and works with the symphony. Doctoral degree! On the recording he was flat, and thank God for technology, we "tuned" him up, rather than bring the crowd back for another take!

    Let that young man use the tools! Keep doing your thing! Now, some of you "real" players, bring it on! But understand, I have been there and done that! I'll play with any one of you, and I use technology,. I am more about Entertainment and it's worked well for me for many years.

    May be of interest- horns on one mic.
