This tribute to Django Reinhardt by Dorado Schmitt playing that Gypsy Jazz favourite "Dark Eyes" gets better with repeated playing.. there's so much going on. If I had to single out one player it would be the clarinetist.. (sorry for the poor quality of the video)

For those of you that despise social media, this is fun.

Having been winding down of an evening with various music tracks, have re-discovered a group I saw live at the Liverpool Stadium in 1974. The modern line-up is even better, not least the energetic percussionist!

The TD of the noughties and up to 2014 had Bernhard Beibl, Linda Spa and Iris Camaa (the drummer you mention) alongside Edgar Froese and Thorsten Quaeschning. After Edgar died, TD became Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Ulrich Schnauss, which is the current line-up.

Golden Cap (2003) was a lovely instrumental by Show of Hands - based on one of their older songs 'Cousin Jack'.Lovely guitar by Phil Beer.



Betteshanger Treasure by Ridgeriders 1999 (Phil Beer/Ashley Hutchings),songs from the tv series Ridgeriders (1994-2001).
Phil Beer is a very talented guitarist with a lovely voice,the song is about Betteshanger Colliery.

Shanghai - Fallen Heroes (1976)
Old Grey Whistle Test - 4th May 1976. Cliff Bennett - Vocals, Mick Green - Guitar, Brian Alterman - LH Guitar, Pat 'Speedy' King - Bass and Pete Kircher - Drums. From the album 'Fallen Heroes'.

I bought the Fallen Heroes LP in 1976 (still got it https://www.britmovie.co.uk/core/ima...lies/smile.png )
But I never knew they had done a Whistle Test appearance,I just found this recently whilst searching for some info on a band member.Cliff Bennett of course had been of 'Rebel Rousers' fame and Mick Green was ex 'Pirates' and 'The Dakotas',Pete Kircher had been in Honeybus and Status Quo.Cliff Bennett sings impressively for an ex fairly lightweight 60's popster :)

...and Pat King went on to play bass for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Cliff Bennett sounds a little like Paul Rodgers.

Yes indeedy Tready :) - and what a great live band MMEB were - I managed to see them twice in the mid to late 70's.

Indeed, love to see them live but they never seem to play in the UK - very popular in Germany it seems...

Every so often I feel the need to remind myself of how things used to be and this just makes me smile.


Then I chill down on this:

5 Minutes That Will Make You Love the Cello

We asked Yo-Yo Ma, John Williams, Andrew Lloyd Webber and others to pick the music that moves them. Listen to their choices.

Seeing Pink Floyd and in particular Dave Gilmour have been covered, Marillion both Fish and Steve H (Does not get much better than Easter, especially live) amongst other great acts, I'm supprised Supertramp have not been represented, so here I give you Fools Overture, with an orchestra.


ford cortina 24th Jun 2020 18:36

And for balance The Who in 74 with possibly the greatest drummer of all time, Mr Keith Moon.

The Eagles perform Joe Walsh's "Life's Been Good" with some slightly modified lyrics from the Maestro... Apparently Melbourne, 2004.
