The Seekers performing my favorite song by them.
They’ve still got it.
Great live rendition with a way cool vocalist in BdLCpl Kirsty Haines. Wow.
One of those songs I can listen to over and over and over and over and…
Ten Fé – In The Air
Ten Fé – In The Air – 2015
I cannot remember the last time I read a review of a newly released album. However, I used to read lots of reviews way back when.
Out of all the hundreds and hundreds of reviews I read, only one sticks out in my memory, and it is, in my mind, the greatest album review ever written. I have no recollection of who wrote it or where I read it. But back in late 1978 Eric Clapton released an album titled Backless. Below is the complete text of the review I read of Backless.
David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, and Chris Hillman — three original members of The Byrds—get together at the Roy Orbison tribute concert and sound fantastic performing classic hits Turn!Turn!Turn! and Mr. Tambourine Man. They totally rock the house when Bob Dylan joins them for the second song. The songs are available as part of The Byrds’ CD box set. Watch this and be reminded why they are all in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
The Beach Boys doing one of my all-time favorite songs, and a remarkable rendition with just the five of them on The Ed Sullivan Show. Though I wonder… did the cameras never show supporting musicians? Later, their touring bands got to be enormous and must have cost a small fortune.
