I'm starting this thread to both share with everyone my favorite music and to also experience music I'm not familiar with.
Since we all have our favorites my hope is that everyone will participate.
Please, lets have some fun.
My plan is to post links to videos of my favorite songs and for all of you to do the same.

Being a child of the 70s, my favorite music is classic rock, but I also enjoy classical, pop, country and more.
My favorite band by far is The Who, followed by Pink Floyd and Pearl Jam.

I'll start this thread with my all time favorite song.
It's by The Who and it's their biggest hit, "Won't Get Fooled Again".
Because of Pete's famous line in this song "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" I felt it was most appropriate to post this song on election day.
That line isn't referring to the latest politician elected, as is the most common interpretation, but is instead Pete telling us that we the people are the boss and always have been the boss.
I hope all of you went out today and voted and exercised your power to be the boss.

I'm going to post two versions of this song.
The first is of the master, Pete Townshend (a modern day Mozart), playing the song solo on acoustic guitar and a more traditional version of The Who playing the song live.

Martin, Great music is great music. Thank you.

I was feeling like some Ligeti this morning and I ran across this performance which brightened an otherwise dreary rainy day....so just a bit off to the left of the bell curve for most listeners,

Barbara Hannigan performing and directing Ligeti's Mysteries of the Macabre with Gothenburg Symphony.

Wilko Johnson, Roger Daltrey - Going Back Home

Those cats checking out Gov Mule, it is Gov't Mule. Lead by Warren Haynes. Think Allman Bros. 1989.
ed k Posted - 01/20/2018 : 4:12:29 PM
Martin, I am featuring Gov. Mule today.

Jerry, Do you have someone in mind?

Phila., and Tampa have two of the best radio stations on planet earth. Both 88.5.

I too generally have music on in my office and car - car has at least 6 CDs loaded and then there's an 8 gig flash drive of concerts and more for when the drive gets a little long.

In the offices, it's internet radio - Progzilla. Playing Rush's Xanadu right now....

But, I just picked up a copy of the official release of David Bowie's Station to Station tour concert from the Nassau Coliseum on CD -- I still have a double vinyl bootleg of that one. You can find the rehearsal sessions for that tour on Youtube.

Or you could buy a lot of kits!!!!!

Rick, I am very familiar with that gear. Exceptional to say the least. It is best we keep the cost of our goodies to our selves, less we be labeled crazy. Let's just say, many very nice new cars go for less.

In many peoples opinion, John Lennon, best rock and roll voice ever. I agree.

Cool video Rick.
Rick Posted - 01/20/2018 : 07:24:32 AM
My first concert was seeing Elton John at MSG on November 28. 1974.
That show was famous for having John Lennon come out for the encore and "Whatever Gets You The the Night".
Here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtL_w62Y2RU

Ed, I'm an audiophile since I was in high school.
My current system is a Jeff Roland Model 1 amp, PS Audio BHK pre-amp, Marantz NA 11S1 DAC and Vandersteen Quatro speakers.
ed k Posted - 01/19/2018 : 10:21:23 PM
Tom, Saturday January 21st., on Austin City Limits. 1106 pm on PBS. I don't know if you get the same broadcast as I. The guests performers are EI-P and Killer Mike-better known as Run the Jewels. One of the super groups of hip hop.
ed k Posted - 01/19/2018 : 9:47:09 PM
Tom, I enjoy exchanging thoughts with you. I sold high end audio gear for many years. Lots of tube equipment (Audio Research) ribbon speakers. I have a tri-amped Audio Research tube system with B&W speakers. Belt drive turntable, tone arm I mounted myself. I like the softer sound you get with tube equipment and vinyl. You are correct it goes no where.
I just left a concert you probably would have liked, even though blue grass is not your thing. Steve Martin and Martin Short at the beautiful Mahaffey Theater in St. Pete., Florida.
Good picking and much humor. Tom get back to me on what your opinion is of the suggested musicians. Gotta go I'm on the road. Driving in Florida requires great attention.

If you do not like any of them, you don't dig bluegrass. Which is cool.
Do you like Rage Against The Machine? I ask every one that.
Music. I love vinyl.

Ed, I will check them out, I have seen the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and I have songs on the IPod for them and Alabama Shakes. I will check out the rest. Pandora and Apple are great. My son is a sound engineer by schooling and is still livid I got rid of all vinyl and went with the IPod. Portable music to me was easier and yes while I can hear a difference it wasn’t that big to me a difference. I know, idiot!
