I love Montreal Cool


Sounds wonderful. Cool

Next time in Dallas, we will enjoy 'Til Midnight at the Nasher.

One of the finest Sculpture Gardens in the world, with live music 'til midnight during the Spring and Fall season. ( Jazz, classical, etc.)

Read Wine + Art's response. Wink

Yes, it is wonderful. It is my most listened to album of all time by a lot. Only about 3 or 4 songs jump out at you the first few times you listen, but then the whole thing becomes a symphony.

Yes, but...

The same phenomenon that happened with Clapton, Robbie Robertson, Van Morrison, Pete Townsend, The Greatful dead, and others happened with her as well. While all have great bodies of work, something about 1970 (give or take one year) produced a level of quality that was not achieved prior or again by many of the very greatest... The Who have lots of great stuff, but nothing compares to Tommy or Who's Next, Tupelo Honey (and other albums as well) contain some of Van Morrison's most brilliant songs, but they don't compare -- as albums -- to Astral Weeks or Moondance. Working Man's Dead and American Beauty were both released in 1970. Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. The Band. Blue.

Neil Young's best album, imo, Harvest, came out in 1972, but his best work is on Deja Vu (1970) ("Helpless").

Something about the very late 60's and very early 70's...

Of course, if you look at what The Beatles and The Stones were doing 1965-1969...

(Or Dylan, '63 - '67)

Please dont compare Joni Mitchell to the greats. I mean it's not warranted. Even so, you cant compare the American greats to the British greats.

Nope. Rust Never Sleeps.

I agree with everything you else you said though.


Mark the date, quickly. I'm agreeing with something Steve is saying about music! Eek

I had such high hopes for the Arctic Monkeys. It's like they ran out of life stories to tell on the second album. Terrible.


Highest selling debut of all time and a Mercury makes me wonder what expectations you had...oscars? A Nobel? Sophomore was great (Teddy Picker, Brianstorm, Flourescent Adolescent - great stories/lyrics), including some bsides but it wouldn't be realistic to ask them to match the success of the first two, they've slid on the third and the new one, only natural for a band so young. Legends though, now.

TPE, if I did anything right in my life, it is my two daughters. Cool

This daughter is heading to lecture at the London School of Economics in a few weeks, and asked me what wine she should seek out to bring me back.

I TOLD YOU she was something. Wink

That is awesome... No only incredibly bright... But incredibly thoughtful... Truly becoming more and more hard to find nowadays. I am sure you have done many things in your life right, but heartfelt congrats on raising a couple of great girls.

A interesting hour long walk listening this morning as the sun appeared, yet again.


Sounds like my kind of mix. Seen Bingham a few different times; all good. All of these T-Bone produced albums are top notch: The Secret Sisters - Self Titled, John Mellencamp - No Better than This, Jakob Dylan - Women & Country. Also, Starbucks just released a collection of T-Bone produced songs. It's pretty good.

Sam Cooke- The Man Who Invented Soul. I honestly can't think of a happier song or one that brightens my day more than Cooke's "(What A) Wonderful World."


A classic I suppose but I always found the 'subjects' a little cheesy. For 2011, the backup singers alone in Jamiroquai's Smile has been nice for the beach.

Well, anyone who knows me would tell you I rank pretty high on the cheese-meter. Smile my grandma used to sing it when I was a kid so I always think fondly of her when I hear it.

I dig my cheese, too - no worries! BTW, thanks for mentioning KOB, gave me great idea for this rainy day off work ahead of my semi final tonight. Cheers.

Gonna catch him live at ACL Fest next weekend and can't wait - bucket list item for me.

As for right now, listening to a local artist who I predict is on the verge of hitting it big soon - Sahara Smith. For those of you who would appreciate a voice like Alison Krauss with sort of a "Texas jazz" mood, give her a shot as she's pretty amazing. Easy of the eyes too...

With T-Bone Burnett backing, hitting it big will indeed happen.

Funny, I had never even heard of T-Bone Burnett or Ryan Bingham before Crazy Heart, but I think they both are quite talented.

Very surprised you had never heard of him - he is a very prolific producer.

My son was at the movie premiere at the TIFF and that evening saw them live at the Air Canada Center. Good day if you like Eddy and Co.


My sister and quite a few friends attended that gig as well...
