I defy anyone not to be moved by this piece of music.

Very short, but hauntingly beautiful.

The genius that is Tom Waits has a new album out entitled "Bad As Me"

Here's a track called "Satisfied"

Marvellous stuff.

This American folk song is poetry. Not sure about the whistling bit, or the guitar, but her voice is sweet and the lyrics great.



Dig your hand in the land
and listen to my story
feel the cotton wheat and corn
the riches and the glory
feel the sweat and strain of those who worked before me
dig your hand down in the land

dig your hand in the land
touch the toil and sorrow
in the soil where the greenbacks
never grow on what I borrowed
dig down and tell me wheres my seed for tomorrow
dig your hand down in the land

Worth a re listen and a look, the video is one of my most favourite music vids ever. Rhys Ifans nails it. I much prefer Noel's stuff to Liam's. :thumbsup:

Ive been listening to a lot of Joe Bonamassa lately and I really dig him, his playing is very high standard, he was brought up by his Dad on a diet of British 60's Blues, John Mayall. Clapton, Green, Beck etc so I guess he learned well..

I don't know what happened to Bobbie Gentry, maybe three husbands didn't help but she gave up in the late seventies. It's a great shame she was very talented musician :dontknow:


This is one of my offbeat selections, but I love folk music, and Flamenco, and you can hear from this how Flamenco originated in Africa with Arabic, Jewish, oh all sorts of influences. I think that's why people are drawn to it, it moved across Africa and Europe like we all did. And it makes you think of holidays! These two are Turks!

I am a little bit in love with Estrella Morente. I saw the Almadovar film 'Volver' with Penelope Cruz, but didn't know anything about Estrella Morente at the time, now I know she can sing traditional Flamenco puro and modern songs, and mixes the two very well. She can't dance though - a bit of a cabhorse there :laughing7: Great singer though and skillful guitar work.

To return

I'm guessing the blinking
of the lights that from far away
Are marking my return

They are the same that lit up
with their pale reflection
A few hours of pain.

And even if I didn't want to be back
One always comes back
to the first love.

The old street
Where I shelter it
Yours is its life
Yours is its love,

Under the courage of the stars
that with indifference
see me return today.

To return...
With a withered forehead
the snow of time
I clear it up on my temple

To feel...
Life is only a gust of wind
That twenty years are nothing
what a hectic stare
unwavering in the shadows
it searches for you and calls out your name

To live...
With the soul holding onto
a sweet memory
I weep for once again.

I'm afraid of the encounter
with the past that returns
to confront my life

I'm afraid of the night
that so full of memories
chains up my dreams

But the traveler who escapes
Sooner or later
Must stop his wandering(1)

And even if oblivion
which destroys all
Has killed
My old illusion

Half hidden
is a humble piece of hope
that is all the fortune
of my heart.

To return...
With a withered forehead
the snow of time
I clear up on my temple

To feel...
Life is only a gust of wind
What twenty years are nothing
what a hectic stare
unwavering in the shadoes
it searches for you and calls out your name

To live...
With the soul holding onto
a sweet memory
Only I'll notice...

They say I'm crazy for thinking so
If I'm too crazy for me to be happy
But tell me who is crazy
And it's not happy, not happy
If they are cute, Alain Delon am

If they are famous, Napoleon am
But tell me who is crazy
And it's not happy, not happy
I swear it's better not to be normal
If I can think of that I am God

If they have three cars, I can fly
If they pray a lot, I'm already in heaven
But tell me who is crazy
And it's not happy, not happy

CHORUS
Yes I am crazy, I will not heal
I'm not the only one who found peace

Something I still regularly listen to and have done since the early 1980’s on vinyl, tape, CD and MP3 is the still fresh "Legend of Jesse James". This a timeless gem with the likes of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, Charlie Daniels, Alvin Lee, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell and Eric Clapton all starring with its predecessor "White Mansions". “Confederate Tales” aka “White Mansions” plus the must have “The Legend of Jesse James” is still available. Buy it! Play it! Enjoy it! You won’t regret it.*
* disclaimer – no money back guarantee.


“Confederate Tales” is the combined double CD re-release of two projects by Paul Kennerley aided and abetted by Producer/Engineer Glyn Johns and a host of famous and less famous names. Originally they were released as separate LP’s, first “White Mansions” followed by “The Legend of Jesse James”. They are still available. It is timeless stuff that hasn’t dated.

Essentially it tells a Confederate story of the American Civil War.

Forget about any prejudices you may have about dead cowboy music, this is  a perfect compilation moving between hard driving country rock to baleful ballads and chain gang blues and playing in a seamless story and timeless production whose quality shines. Some of the virtuoso guitar riffs reminiscent of The Who at that time (end of 70’s). It sounds good in the car but amazing on a good, powerful hifi or through proper headphones where you appreciate the production values and contrasts between loud and quiet passages. It’ll give you goose bumps.

The unlikely history is that Liverpudlian singer song writer Paul Kennerley, who married Emmylou Harris, came up with the concept, wrote and put together a star cast – a bit like the Travelling Willburys, except they could not promote the albums due to contractual problems with the artists’ different record companies. Hence, the producers, songwriters and performers did not receive the exposure they deserved so lost out on recognition and reward. I can’t understand why it hasn’t been made into a musical western – the first since Calamity Jane?

Yep, probably down to those darn record companies again. You know. The ones that claim to act in the interests of the artists and soingwriters. Not sure they have cottoned on to the concepts of exploitation, restrictive practices and the internet.

Found these selections from Jesse James You Tube links. A cult following. Try before you buy.

ps  true quote from Amazon
By A Customer
This review is from: White Mansions & Jesse James (Audio CD)
If I was marooned on a Desert Island and could only have one Cd to play, the Legend of Jesse James would be the one. The instrumentals and lyrics are just first class. Buy it, listen to it, you will be amazed

Yes. Quality country music. Hadn't seen that album before, and you are quite right, thanks


My little contribution is something I've found, very short and sweet, it's a little verse of a song by Rafael Romero. The first time I heard it I was astounded by the artistry, just a gypsy singer from Jaen in Spain, yet he'd a marvellous tenor voice. Just give it a try, it's fantastic

I'm learning every day about Flamenco, and I've found that I'm drawn to the Cante (song) more and more, the guitar is just a backing for the singers. This lady was Antonia Vargas, a Gitana (gypsy) from Cadiz, known as La Perla de Cadiz. She had a beautiful voice and talent. Here she is singing a bulerias

the hardest part of Flamenco to grasp is the rhythm, bulerias rhythm is the same as America from west side story "everything free in Amer-i-ca" and so on.
