Bluegrass Rules

BLUEGRASS: :wave In the 40ís 50ís 60ís and 70ís we were Country fans then country became just noise they were making instruments make sounds that were unreal.:o We soon branched off to Bluegrass, a simple non electric and no drums ĎAcousticí music We have been to Festís all over the U,S. from the prairies of North Dakota through the Ozarks Of Mo Ark , to a mountain top in Alabama and valleys of Ga and way back in the hills of West Virginia where the road in wound up to be a creek bed. They are all different But havenít found a bad one.:o They all have Main stages with National groups , and food venders and such ,but the real thing is the jamming . Maybe a lone banjo picker will start pickin and then a guitar will join then a fiddle and a mandolin and if lucky a base fiddle And of course someone will have a high tenor vocals . And as they play each will solo on their instrument and you can hear each distinctively. They clame Bill Monroe to be the Father but it took the input uh many others. Most Fests are campgrounds and no Drugs or alcohol allowed I have never seen a drunk at a festivle.:cheers

Music Favs

Ahh music. One of my favorite subjects and the closest thing I have to a hobby. What can I say, I have no life.

I'm with Suz on this subject. What ever I need to hear at the time, is what I listen to. All time favorites include, but aren't limited to:

Blues/Zydeco: Muddy Waters, The Wolf, Elmore James, S.R.V., Hound Dog Taylor, Clifton Chenier. My pick for newest fav is Susan Tedeschi.

C/W: First off, Johnny Cash is the Man. Followed by Hank, Buck, Merle, Doug Sahm, Bob Wills, basically ''old school'' stuff. These days, I really like a band out of Austin, TX. called The Derailers.

Rock: It's all good from the beginning in the 50's on. I ''borrowed'' all of my Dad's Oldies But Goodies albums and wore them out. I listen to AC/DC, ZZ Top and everything in between.

Jazz: I dig the stuff from the 40's thru the 60's. Ella, Duke, Louis Prima, Billie, Goodman, Sinatra, and a lot of that ''Lounge'' stuff. I sure did enjoy that swing music revival a few years back. It was nice to see teens and twentysomethings listening and dancing to great music.

I hope I haven't hogged up too much space with my ramblings.

Jim

Jim** nope:nope, just your fair share, in fact I think you still owe us some rambling. Very versatile ear you have there, Jim.

That bluegrass, Lyndon. I have just found it enough to claim it a little. I've always liked it, but wouldn't admit it. :lol It sure sounds like fun to have a camp sing and play.

Music

Hi, Jim! Sometimes it just takes more words to say something...I'm the best at that, so no worries! :)

Speaking of Billie, I just got a Billie Holiday CD the other day. I am still replacing my cassettes from years past as I find the ones I want/miss not having. The Bose sound system in last vehicle I bought about 1 1/2 yrs ago really makes it a total different experience.

In addition to Billie Holiday, a Fine Romance, I got a CD with some of the Big Band Swing Sounds, and an Edith Piaf.

Now here's one that I definitely have to be in the mood for, but will make the miles really pass on a long stretch of road: Sound track from Phantom of the Opera. Probably helps that I saw it a couple of years ago on Broadway, but that'll really get you where you're going if you're in the mood! One caveat: don't forget you're pulling a trailer!

Tunes for the road

I'm not sure about other countries, but in the US (I'm making an assumption that most states have this) you can check CDs out for a month from the local library. My daughter taught me that (smart kid!).

It's a great way to have different sounds for a road trip, to see if you want to buy the CD, or for those 'once in a while' ones like Phantom.

Any chance you're heading to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival next week, Jim? With the lineup you just listed, I would think you would love the NOJ&HF!

Did you ever get a chance to see Clifton Chenier perform, live? Man, he was cool - always had a good band, but they'd kick it up a notch when Clifton arrived. And he'd just lay back and make playing that piano accordion look almost effortless (which, of course, it was not!) He'd play four hours straight, no break... We have a ton of Clifton's records, but my favorite is ''Frenchin' the Boogie.''

Thanks, Jim, for reminding me of some great times (long gone by)!

:ola :ola

After thinking long and hard on this topic; Suz said it best...it depends on the mood and where we are.
We travel with a Sony 10disc changer and two magazines giving us 20 cd's loaded to go. Donna gets 10 and I get 10 choices and typically includes some 50's; country; sound tracks and instrumental.
I like a little George Winston, John Prine, Freddy Fender,the Doors, Travelin Wilbury's,Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Nora Jones,Martin Denny, Roger Whittaker, Cher, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Peggy Lee, K.d. Lang, ...well you get the idea.

<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3ea05c40940e5collection.jpg/>

We have about 700 cd's, a couple hundred LP's, tapes, 8-tracks. Many of the cd's have been made from LP's and tapes using either our computer or a stand alone JVC burner.

Music

Suz,

I'm going to have to give "Phantom" a try. I'm always open to new (to me) sounds. As far as soundtracks go, South Pacific is one of my favorites. About the library, I have burned several cd's compliments of the public library. Most are by folks who have passed away. Billie Holliday, John Denver, and Dean Martin to name a few. I also try not to make copies of artist who aren't "mainstream" and are probably having a difficult time breaking through. I figure they could use every record sale they can get.

Mary F,

I would absolutely LOVE to go the the N.O. Jazz & Heritage Fest. someday. Perhaps next year. My Father-in-Law and I are planning to go to Texas next year just to take in the music scene. So far, we can't decided on the best time to go. Going to Austin for the South by Southwest event is leading the pack, but there is still plenty of time before we book anything. About Clifton, I came to his music too late to see him live, but I did see his kid C. J. Chenier with the Red Hot Louisiana Band. They tore the roof of the joint!

I'm thankful we have a very good live music scene here. For just a dot on the map, we do pretty good.

Jim

Almost forgot, Noels mention of John Prine made me realize I left out one of the best singer-songwriters out there today IMHO. Iris DeMent. Her music is FANTASTIC. If you get just one, get Infamous Angel. Ok, I'm done...really.

Holy Cow, Noel! I've seen fewer CDs in a radio station! How in the world do you ever keep track of what you have?

Nancy

Noel,:wave
Please come to Phoenix and teach me how to organize my hundreds of 78's, single LP's and albums.
I had my collection from the 30's 40's and a few 50's and now I have all my sister's collection. One room is devoted to all this music (in boxes).
I now, much prefer CD's and will probably sell all the other vinyls at a carport sale if I can ever get up enough energy to organize the collection.
Help!
Darline:wave

Music

I am impressed Noel. Bill is the music collector in our house, and he is up to 1000+ and the LP's are the same. So we like alot of different stuff. We stay away from screaming head banging stuff, and rap, but are also split, as he like the Doors and Pink Floyd and I don't. I couldnt put a lable on favorite, as we go through favorites. Now I am really into bluegrass, Nickle Creek, fast picking and playing. Bill has ALWAYS been into Greatful Dead and owns everything from David Grisman. You just never know whats going to be our next "favorite", so you buy it all!

Nancy, when Charles Carault (sp?) bought our local radio station, they borrowed all of BILL'S cd's to get started! Those were the days. I forgot about that until you mentioned radio stations. That was about 6-7 years ago already.
