I saw them back in 2007/8, can't remember exactly when, at a 'Countryside Alliance' gig, Jeremy Clarkson was the compare, he'd just come back from the Arctic, anywho it was a good show with Mike d'Abo (handbags and gladrags) Bryan Ferry (Chis on guitar), Steve Windwood and headlined by Eric Clapton, Windwood stayed on stage to play a few Traffic numbers.

still wasn't impressed with Brian Ferry, just not my cup of tea

I’m a big Roxy Music fan so it’s difficult to hear a bad word said about Bryan!! Have every vinyl... even Country Life that has to be put away when the family come to visit..

Great to hear you’ve seen CS though! Also got Clapton..!

Twig,
      I'm not 100% sure if he's still doing a bit even now. I saw him at the polish club in Amersham about 4-5 years ago.

      John the two tracks you put on both great listening, keep it up.

This was part written by sonny bono ,for who I don't know but this girl was the first to record followed by many other. For me this remains the original and the best.

Back around 1962 I used to frequently watch cliff Bennett and the rebel rousers, they sang it regularly, but still love this most.

Title: Re: Friday evening music
Post by: RaySmith on May 18, 2020, 03:25:11 AM
That's great bobbo.
Needles and Pins was one of the first records i ever  bought - on an EP by The Searchers, but Jackie de Shannon's is obviously the definitive version.

RE above - Always a big fan of Chris Farlowe, and of Coloseum with the great Jon Hiseman and Dick Heckstlall Smith (and the others you mention) - great to hear them together -



RIP Phil May of the Pretty Things. They were  heroes of mine in the early 60's - they seemed  far more rebellious than the Stones. Their first single Rosalyn was great, really  raw  sounding.



Early footgae of them doing Don't Bring Me Down-



They want on to have a long and influential career, if not great commercial success, but many fans amongst well known  musicians, and recorded one of the first story telling albums with S F Sorrow,a forerunner of the Who's Tommy.
They were still performing until  very recently, when Phil May was diagnosed with emphysema.

I'm sorry to disagree with the majority on here, but everyone's taste is different, thank God.

I saw Chris Farlowe live and couldn't believe how poor he was, especially in his highest charting desecration of the Jaggers & Richards song 'Out Of Time'.

Music is very important to me too bobbo. I'm impressed by  you going to the States  all those times to see James Taylor - I'm a big fan of West Coast singer/songwriters of that era too - Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell being particular favourites, and here are two of the   best-

Great stuff Dodgin - and great user name btw!

Fever is a classic, and i well remember Peggy Lee's version, an  eevn Bob dylan has sung it in concert, but don't think I've  this version before.

I was i influenced enough to but  original material by some of the r and b artists the 60s groups like the Stones, Beatles and Pretty Things covered, and got into the  likes of Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Howlng Wolf, Slim Harpo, Muddy Waters and Sonny Terry and Brownie Mcghee - all easily available in record shops at the time.
I even bough a Leadbelly  LP in Woolworth's with Rock island Line, a big hit for Lonnie Donnegan, on it.

Original Little Red Rooster by Howling Wolf, a massive hit for the Stones-

I saw them once, coming out of a guitar shop in Shaftesbury Avenue, but didn't speak to them or didn't ask for their autograph, of course -too uncool.

A bit of advice from Richard Thompson for all those going shopping today -




Bob Dylan has an album of new material released this week, his first for about  8 years.

This song is from the album that first turned me on to Dylan The Times They Are A'Changing, which still seems very  relevant- a Tulse hill comp  schoolmate said 'you've got to here this bloke', and we sat on the floor in of one of the listening booths in  WH Smiths , Streatham High Road, and i was completely amazed by what i heard, going into  my local  record shop   days later and asking for the record by Bob Dielon.




Bob and Richard together -love this cover of a Rye Cooder song, find it moving, even if Dylan does look a bit under the weather -

A couple from Lindisfarne. On the first one, lead vocals are by Ray 'Jacka' Jackson, who composed and performed the mandolin parts of Maggie May. John Peel sat in and mimed, famously, for a TOTP performance. The second is the late, great Alan Hull.

On another occasion, at a live gig, a friend (Chris Eccleshall) played the mandolin part. He's a luthier and subsequently made my own mandolin. There's a tutorial for the mandolin part on youtube and it's surprisingly playable, whilst sounding impressive.

I really can't say for certain but it was just after Fog on the Tyne and Genesis were just starting out, before they became big. It would have been at a Poly or Uni somewhere south of London. My memory isn't up to any more these days...

I saw that Arthur Lee and Love's 2003 Glastonbury performance was on telly a couple of days ago so have recorded it. I saw them at a very strange venue - Slough Community Centre. It was a Nissen hut, probably long demolished. They had some puny coloured lights but Arthur just came on and said "put all the lights on so you can see us" So the "lightshow" was the fluorescent tubes flickering!

As to church venues, the strangest was the RC church in Feakle (yes, really) in rural west Ireland a few years back. I'd gone to see my favourite fiddler's duo (he comes from the village). He and the guitarist sat in front of the altar with all the candelabras arrayed behind them and all the hundreds of candles lit. That was their lightshow.

The last time i saw them was at pub in Crystal Palace - one owned by Tartan Breweries, who made Newcastle Brown, so presumably that was why  were in such a small venue. I remember Alan Hull wasn't with them, which annoyed me a bit.

Also the Cambridge Folk Festival, 1981

Also the Crystal Palace  Bowl, Garden Party, with Yes and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, 1971 i think.

We Can Swing Together was always a  great end of their concerts, with the crowd participating, sort of says what they were all about, i suppose such a great  live band, made great records too,

Just read a review of a bio the brilliant guitarist and singer/songwriter , Glasgow born,John Martyn.

 A Jekyll and Hyde character,  abandoning his first wife Beverley, with whom he made a record, and child, who had to  go on benefits, while he was spending money on drugs, the bio alleges.Also, that he took on  a group of 12 blokes, who'd abused a waiter in an Indian restaurant, headbutting two, and the others backed off.

But  he wrote such tender love  songs, including this one about troubled friend, Nick Drake

I haven't heard either of those versions before bobbo - but they are both  completely different, and both brilliant.

Alexis Korner is still going I believe, such an important figure in the British music scene of the 60's but it was shame what happened to Steve Marriott -  robbed of his earnings by the American Mafia, he returned to England penniless, and died young - but from this video here you can see how talented he was.

So I was shocked to suddenly see the news of Peter's death. You only have to listen to him to appreciate just how great he was.

I had the honour to meet him on several occasions, he was one of the true greats, up there with Clapton, but very humble, Fleetwood Mac was his band however he didn't want the limelight and suggested that Mike Fleetwood and John McVie name his band!

Wher I did go regularly was a club called " the discotec " in wardour street it was next door to the flamingo , up a set of stairs . Lots of blue beat music an Purple Hearts flying about. Actually met my wife there. They never turned out till 6.00am .

Bobbo, I was next door at the Flamingo many times, first was a lunchtime record session, when I was in my very early teens. Even took my first late wife there on our debut date. She also lived a ten minute walk from Craven Cottage. Last live gig I went to was just before the lockdown saw this lady.

Bit before that time Bobbo, Tony Kinsey Quartet was the resident group at the Flamingo, was more into the Jazz scene in those days, early sixties with visits to the Two Brewers in Wandsworth High Street to see UK jazz Ronnie Ross and Bert Courtley, Odeon Hammersmith for Dave Brubeck,Sarah Vaughan and Erroll Garner.

Anyone else remember the Greyhound in Croydon as a music venue?

Yes, I saw a  few bands there in the 70's - often on a Sunday night.

Tony McPhee's Groundhogs (?), springs to mind, Focus, top Dutch band of the day, Vinegar Joe with Elkie Brooks,
but my memory's a bit hazy.

That was one of the few venues i knew of , near me, south of the river.

Also, closer to home, a regular at The Cricketers, Keninton Oval, had a lot of jazz, and a great DJ, where I met my wife, and the  Half Moon , Herne hill -where  Little Stevie Smith, brilliant harmonica player and singer led  the resident band, SALT, which often featured  Mick Hawksworth of Ten Years After on bass, i went out with a woman who lived in his house, but that's another story!

I actually remember going to a folk club at the Half Moon in the 60's, but then it became right dive -a lot different today i think.

Speaking of dives which these pubs often, brilliantly, were, anyone remember The George Robey, Finsbury Park? a big music pub.

I used to regularly see Curved Air there, lusting after Sonja Kristina, then years later sitting next to her at a dinner.

Anyone remember the late lamented Ram Cider House in Godalming? It was a top-class session pub.

Actually Curved Air came to mind whe i thought of the greyhound, but wasn't sure if my memory was tricking me.

I was a huge fan of Curved Air, bought their records. I've always loved a violin, and with her singing, they were great.

She had a lovely voice, and i definitely  remember seeing her, as a solo artist i think, at Chalk Farm Roundhouse.
She went along touching the reaching out hands of the blokes standing at the front, of whom i was one!

I missed the touching at the Greyhound, couldn't quite reach! Made up for it by being able to say that I've had dinner with her.

I'd give my right arm to play the fiddle and used to be a fan of Darryl Way. Then I went to a gig in a pub in South Devon and saw a well-known local band (Baka Beyond) with this terrific fiddler (Paddy le Mercier). Said to a friend "Darryl Way eat your heart out" and he said "that's him over there". He lived/lives in the village and used to go to the sessions my friend ran in the pub there but never played. He said that he had to learn a piece or sight-read, couldn't play by ear. Anyway, a couple of days later  Darryl was playing in a duo with a singer and playing keyboard. Le Mercier was watching and Darryl looked very nervous. He only played the fiddle once. So since then he's gone down in my estimation.

There's so many good fiddlers...

After finding a mutual appreciation for Curved Air with Holders, I was thinking of the  violin in rock, and here are some fine examples-

Curved Air, with the great Sonja Kristina on vocals, Darryl Way, violin.



It's a beautiful day, Patti Santos, vocal, David Laflamme, violin-




Bob Dylan, with Scarlett Rivera, violin-

Title: Re: Friday evening music
Post by: Holders on August 01, 2020, 07:12:04 PM
Thanks Ray. I knew the Curved Air but the other examples are new.

For fiddle in rock, try Communion by East of Eden: 



It's such a versatile instrument and sounds good in all genres. There used to be a blues guitarist who went to the Ram sessions and fiddle accompaniment to that just added another depth. Ric Sanders turned up there once as well. He was busking with a mate on the melodian, it got a bit "competitive" and the other musicians dropped out just leaving Ric and Dave. At the end they called it an honourable draw and Ric asked him if he's like to play with them (Fairport) at the Civic Hall the following night "no, sorry mate, I'm working nights at the post office". I'd have gone sick!

Meantime, may I recommend the incomparable Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill:

in particular "PJ's pecurious Pachabel", starting at about 12.50? I booked them at the end of a European tour (Toulouse, Paris, Berlin etc...) to play our little village hall on Dartmoor. The roof nearly came off and people still talk about it.

Here's a top-class fiddle, viola and cello quartet. Maybe not to everybody's taste but give it a chance. How they weave those patterns is incredible.



I think the first tune is beautiful but start from 4 mins if you prefer something livelier.

Just playing it through, look at the expressions on 2nd violin and viola's faces when 1st Violin plays a bum note at 16.30!

Sandy Denny covering Jackson C. Frank's Milk and Honey.
Sandy was 'Britain's  answer to Joni Mitchell', but never really broke through commercially, and died i her early 30's. While ex-lover  Frank, was severely burned in a childhood fire in America, and travelled to England and was a part of the 60's folk scene, but had a breakdown and disappeared, and was accidentally discovered years later living on the  streets in America, and died  young, after only releasing one album, but his songs are widely covered and his talent   highly respected.




Gene Clarke, the ex-Byrd never had the success after the Byrds that many thought his talent warranted , and died young    -

As an oldie and a music lover, just realised what I’ve been missing with “Friday Evening Music”. Just played Heart playing “Stairway to Heaven”, brought tears to my eyes, thanks Sunbury White. There are some wonderful selections on offer, thank you all.

Hello all.
I know it is early for a Friday night in your part of the world for this thread but as a long time visitor to FoF I thought it high time a contribution was made.
There is understandably a little despondency around at the moment so maybe the youthful charm and talent of Angelina Jordan may bring some cheer to you. Am a big believer in the yoof policy.
There is some brief, introductory blather by the presenter in the first song but it is minimal.
For those of you who have not previously heard Angelina, I hope you enjoy. :drums:
I believe she is already 6'1 so maybe we could have a look at her in the January window too.

The Faces at their bawdy, boozy best.

Sonja Kristina and Curved Air- was a huge fan back in the day - and they stiil sound good. I think that was their only hit single.

Wishbone Ash - I had a  mate who was mad about them, but I wasn't convinced, but I enjoyed that  vid.

I was just about to hit the sack when I saw your response.
Angelina can be hit or miss (in truth, awful on occasion but she is yet to turn 15), but when she gets it right, she is peerless. Maybe a once in a lifetime talent.
Check out her versions of "Stay", "I Will Survive", "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" and "Fly me to the Moon".
I will link them if you like.

Yep Bobbo. But on the other side of the place to your daughter.
Thankfully in Covid free Perth.
Living pretty much a normal life apart from a blanket ban on non-essential overseas or interstate travel.
Our "hard border" is still in effect and will stay that way for at least the next 2 months.
Your daughter would be having a much harder time of it. It has been a bit of a mish-mash on the Eastern seaboard.
And I know it is not Friday night but one last Angelina performance for you. :HD:

Copperhead Road is a briliant song White JC, tells  a real story, there's  so much in it - and a great, passionate performance by Steve , of course. Great choice.

I was   recently reminded of Steve's  book of his outstanding short stories, Doghouse Roses , about the  types of characters who inhabit his songs - brilliant writing, with all Steve's  usual empathy and compassion for the underdog.
His novel is pretty good too - I'll Never Get out of This World Alive.

And that's alongside all his great records and performances.

There's not much to it, just a crossroads and a pub. Mind you, it was raining at the time which didn't help, so I didn't go up the hill itself. Perhaps I should have. Next time, maybe.

I have an Irish friend who has quite the best male singing voice that I've heard. We were down the pub one session night with his new girlfriend and he got his guitar out and sang Spancil Hill. Part way in, she started laughing uncontrollably. At the end she said that she loved the song but found the title hilarious. He never sang it again.

But he did sing this (for her) superbly (better than Christy Moore, dare I say?):

I was in Kilkenny just over  a year ago, to see Neil Young and Bob Dylan. After the concert the pubs were full of Gaelic football fans, and there was live music - great atmosphere. Previously in Dublin a bloke sold me a poem in a pub.
Love Christie's music, the magic a select few  can achieve with just their own voice and a guitar - Neil Young and Bob Dylan, two more btw-

Christie's covers of trad and modern songs are great, as well as his own material. Here, of Pink Floyd's  tribute to late ex-bandmate, Sid Barrett, Shine on You Crazy Diamond-




With the great Sinead O' Connor




I saw Bob Marley in 1980/1, at the Crystal Palace Bowl shortly before he died, and he played this, a  favourite song, that  is relevant to  what's going on at moment  as reported on the FFC website, Black History Month

Angelina is a freakish talent. To me, and I know this will cop a lot of derision, she is is already the best female singer I have heard.
This is the song that sent her her viral on the internet.
BTW, it was a young country woman of yours, Alma Deutscher, that led me to Angelina. Alma is music.

When I was a kid, the teacher at my primary school invited us to bring in our favourite gramophone records. So I took "The Old Sow" by Albert Richardson, a timeless classic. She played a bit then whipped the needle off saying "we're not listening to that". She was a snooty moo in other ways as well.

This featured in an episode of the brilliant The Sopranos (which  has a great soundtrack), which i've been re-watching on Netflix.
My wife introduced me to Tim Buckley when we met all those years ago - a clue, all the records were  vinyl!
Anyway, I had to listen to this again, and rediscovered  how brilliant Tim Buckley was-



Listening to an old  Steve Earle record, and really liked this-



I first saw the Rolling Stones at the Richmond Jazz and Blues festival, all those years ago, and a review of a remastered record  caused me to listen to this, which seems, sadly, still very relevant  today, and is a great  rock song  too-

There are a few, not bad quality, Youtube vids of her  at the Preston warehouse with a  young band, in the early 80s,  when i saw her in a Brixton old cinema, not the Academy. She  did a lot of Velvet Underground stuff, and was good, though not many there.

Great choices  by you, classics, love  Pale Blue Eyes.

It was  hard to find a vid of Nico live with the Velvet Underground, that was the only one!
There are a few, not bad quality, Youtube vids of her  at the Preston warehouse with a  young band, in the early 80s,  when i saw her in a Brixton old cinema, not the Academy. She  did a lot of Velvet Underground stuff, and was good, though not many there.

Great choices  by you, classics, love  Pale Blue Eyes.

Marianne Faithfull -great song, have thought of getting some of her  stuff, she's still making  records, despite  many health problems.
Hi Ray, never saw Nico myself, which is a real shame, but did see Lou in the 70s doing the Rock n Roll Animal album with Mick Ronson. Best days ever!
Marianne Faithfull had some good stuff for sure.

Evening all.

I hope things get better for you all folk before much too long. It seems it is all getting a little out of hand again. There is always music and a tipple or two to get by with I suppose. 3 parts music to one part tipple though!

Just love Ruby's inflexion in this:

As was Jackie Leven, here with a tribute to Judee Sill. I actually met him at one of his concerts - a really nice, down to earth bloke, now sadly departed.




Just bought for the Roses MP3   by Joni Mitchell for a fiver at Amazon. Her earlier albums, including the classic  Blue available for £3.45on mp3 . An Archive of her early  work has just been released.




An Archive of unreleased Neil Young material also just released - hard to keep up with all his releases though-

I have been watching and greatly enjoying, if that is the right word, Stteve McQueen's series of films Small Axe. In the second film called Lovers Rock seemingly not much happens it just follows the events of a house party where the music is reggae but many of the tracks are from the genre called Lovers Rock. Even for a less Caribbean audience, a nostalgixc feel permeates. I loved the programme.

I had heard most of the tunes before but there was one that was new to me, in the Lovers Rock style and it was this one, After Tonight by Junior English enjoy.

But not as bad what you folk are enduring.
And thanks for introducing me to Elkie. I have not heard her before. A mixture of Helen Reddy and Janis Joplin. Why she is not better known? Looked her up and very much liked this one straight off the top of the YT list:

Nice one bobbo - a very apt song for Fulham fans today, she has a lovely voice.


I remember you posted Arthur Alexander  singing  You'd Better Move On, who wrote it, and i posted  an early Stones version, that I'd bought on an ep  and loved.

This is a great, original  version of the song You Gotta Move, which Stones  recorded and was on the Sticky Fingers album, by Mississippi Fred Mcdowell-



I remembered that I'd seen the Stones do the song at Knebworth in 1976, and here it is. 10cc held the concert up for ages before they came on,  and the Stones didn't come on til the early hours of the morning, but were great. I somehow managed to be right at the front, when they came on, which definitely adds greatly to enjoyment of a concert for me.

Love the song, love fred's version but even though I too really like the stones I cannot say OI enjoyed that version but am envious that you were at the front to see them.

But I only recently heard the song for the first time and this is the version I know best. Hope you like an alternative arrangement.

great numbers there ray the graduate , what a great film i must have watched it 10 times whilst flying down to oz , the music is superb, and the thomas crown affair steve mcqueen and fay dunaway another fab film .

Yes,  they were great films bobbo - glad you liked the post.

Reallly enjoyed your recent ones too.

Just after watching your James Taylor  vid, I read an old review of  a Carly Simon bio where she spoke of her 10 year marriage to James, which seems to have had its ups and downs, him with quite serious problems.

All the great  singer /songwriters of this era , had relationships with each other and then wrote songs about it!

I love this. I fierst heard it on the Lean on Me album I think when that first came out. Bill Withers is one of the great underated stars. I was so sorry when he recently passed.

Another great track on that album was who is he and what is he to you. just saying.

I actually paid and got up to watch a live on line concert from Band- Maid from Japan a few weeks ago. This song proves that they are more than capable of doing soft ballads as well as the best rock songs. When Jimmy Page tells Arkane (the drummer) that she is one of the best drummers he has ever heard you know they have quality.

That's a coincidence Bobbo - I'd been thinking of Amy myself. Since watching the doc Amy, directed by Asif Kapardia, I have  been  feeling angry and upset at the  shocking way those around her, meant to be helping her, exploited her to make  money for them, even when she was obviously unwell and needed treatment, and  didn't want to perform.

The way the press and  talk show comperes and comedians  spoke about her troubles , to sell papers, and for a cheap laugh, was also disgusting, seen now, in hindsight.
Here in a great performance with Paul Weller -



The Waterboys



The Cowboy Junkies

With regards to Amy Winehouse's, it's almost 10 years since she passed away (23rd July 2011).

Very sad, probably the biggest talent this country produced this century music wise, I would say I definitely grew to appreciate her talent much more in the years that passed since.

The place she is buried is next to a big field full of horses, about a mile north of Edgware, and I remember her looking really happy riding horses on a beach in Jamaica I think...so like to think of her doing the same now.

Very sad, a great loss X

Thank you RaySmith and Steeeeeeeeeed, I will admit, I have to be the only person here who has never heard AW sing at all. I've heard of her, obviously, but never sat down and listened to her. I was pretty impressed with that vid of her with Paul Weller (not THAT's a singer I have heard a lot from back in the early Jam days - then again, his just a couple of months older than I).

What would be a good album to start me off with my AW education then?

Wonderful choices, Ray.

So sad to hear Sandy singing that beautiful song. Fairport were pre-Ric Sanders, obviously. I remember turning up at a funeral and Ric was there - what a session was had in the pub afterwards! We sat in the garden in the sunshine when a huge dark purple cloud came over and sat behind an old oak tree silhouetted against it and a few crashes of thunder. It was spooky. If there's such a thing as an afterlife, old Don was there -he wouldn't miss a good session.

I saw the whole family  together in concert once at Glasgow Concert Hall  for Celtic connections festival, and also saw the Mcgarrigles at the Cambridge Folk festival

I've seen Martha in concert solo too, in Manchester, and Loudon playing in Regents Open Air theatre, ripping my jeans  climbing over the railings to get in free!

Is the drummer channelling the spirit of Keith Moon?
The Fulham players could do with some of what he's on this evening!

Great blues playing from Gary Moore.

So corny, they're obviously taking the pee - but hilarious. Loved the drummer, amazing how he kept time.

Yes indeed. It's a fairly elusive (and under-rated) song to find and I was pleased to do so. There's nothing like hearing it live with all the harmonies but it's still good to have as it's a song with great class and meaning.

Jut been reading a great book, Erebus, by Michael Palin, about one of the two ships in the doomed  expedition i 1875, to find the North West Passage, when all disappeared without trace.
I recommend this book, it's a compelling read.
Here's Pentangle's, featuring Burt Jansch,  version of the  famous folk song, Lord  Franklin,  about this expedition.




Just listened to one of the BBC R4 programmes marking Bob Dylan's  80th birthday, in which Martin Carthy tells of Dylan walking into a London pub in the early 60's, when Carthy played Lord Franklin, and then Dylan 'borrowed'  the tune for one of his own songs -Bob Dylan's Dream.
Here, a rare live version of Dylan  performing this.




A bloke who I met on the train trip back from our famous Cup win at Carlisle in '75, on our road to the Final,  happened to  stand next to me in the Enclosure soon after, and he  sold/gave me a spare ticket to see Black Sabbath at Hammersmith Odeon, who i'd hardly even heard of, but it was an unforgettable experience.. Great band.

So that's another song that Martin Carthy had nicked by someone more famous in most circles.

Thanks JC for all your work in keeping this great thread going, along with everything else you do for FoF.

I was just perusing, without any ideas myself, when i watched Hobgoblin's vid of Nirvana's great cover of a Leadbelly song. I was huge fan of Leadbelly back in the 60's, and was going to comment, and then I thought to post some selections myself if I'm going to comment, and  apart from the man himself, i was thinking of the many covers of his songs.

One of my favourite bands growing up were Wishbone Ash. They've gone through lots of line-ups with just the one original member still playing, the incomparable Andy Powell. "Phoenix" is 15 minutes or so of absolute pleasure. If you get a chance to catch them while Andy Powell is still standing (he's 71), do so. This is from 2018.

Here's a strange one (not the song, cos it's very catchy). There was a band in the 70s called Blue, not to be confused with the later boy-band. They had a hit with 'Capture Your Heart' and then they released this one, called 'Women'. It wasn't really a hit, but was far superior imho. Anyway, see what you think? It was co-produced by the guest piano player, a guy called Elton John.

OK, I have a question for all the music experts out there, seems we have quite a few in this thread. 

I recently bought an Apple HomePod, and it's great.  With the monthly subscription charge of $10 per month paid to Apple, I can get any music I want, any time, even some very obscure artists and music, at home or even in my car with Apple CarPlay.  It's great!

Now, THE QUESTION.......HOW DO THE ARTISTS GET PAID/COMPENSATED???

I've asked a number of people about this and no one seems to know how that gets done.  This question would pertain to all the platforms out there besides Apple Music, such as Spotify, Amazon Music et al.

ANYONE KNOW?

its my understanding that each time you play a song the artist(s)/songwriter(s) and record label get paid a sum of money, typically a very small amount similar to PRS (performing rights) with the idea the more one of your songs gets played the more you (as an artist) get paid.
you'll hear most artists say that they get next to nothing and that a million plays = pennies compared to "record sales".

I went ahead and googled it, and apparently platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, et al pay the artist/producer/someone one or two cents per song play.  Doesn't sound like a lot of money, but when you consider the millions upon millions of subscribers to various services worldwide, this probably adds up to a bunch of money.  To me, it sounds like an accounting/logistics nightmare.  And the artists are really at the mercy of the platforms to properly report.  Unless there is a way to track playtime and who is gonna do that and how is that even done.  I guess it's up to the producer of an album/song to then further split the take to include the artist.  And what then happens to artists that are deceased?  I suppose their share goes to their estate?  Anyway, just seems like an incredible undertaking to satisfy the artists involved.

I could have chosen many of Jeff's tracks. 'See The Light', or 'Confidence man' spring immediately to mind. Some of you may recall that Jeff's band were the resident band in Roadhouse (Swayze film).

Here's a rock ballad that should please most people. Featuring Ronnie James Dio on vocals, Cozy Powell on drums and the brilliant Ritchie Blackmore on guitar.

Nice one Barrett.

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day, and Stuart  Adamson of Big Country was one of the many fine, young musicians who have killed themselves.
Here are three favourite artists,  who have done this, including Stuart.

If you're feeling bad, tell someone, don't suffer alone, help is out there.

Big Country, In a Big Country-




Nick Drake, River Man -




Joy Division's Ian Curtis, scene from film Control, with Ian played by Sam Riley - great performance and film, segueing into the real Ian Curtis and Joy Division. I thought the film scene illuminated the song well, and the tensions in Ian's life, that led to his untimely suicide, just as the band was about to tour the States, and break into the bigtime -

Yes, Rod did some great interpretations of Dylan songs , Bobbo. Here's Tomorrow is a long time-



Just dscovered this woman, think she's great, Maddison Cunningham, even bought her  MP3 ep for £2 on Amazon-




Just reading Sex Pistol lead guitarist, Steve jones bio, Lonely Boy. Well, I'd seen a TV film about it ages ago, and though it seemed  interesting, , then when i saw for it recently as a   99p Daily Deal on Amazon Kindle i bought it. A good read, honest, and shocking at times.
Hard to believe how controversial the Sex Pistols were in their day -



If you're interested, you can actually see the notorious interview with Bill Grundy, which went out live on  early evening TV, and ended Grundy's career, but helped the Pistols take off.
I saw it live myself, sitting with my  family, and thought it pretty funny. But at work the next day, the mostly  young blokes, into rock, like Tony in his early twenties,  with blonde hair past his shoulders, like his heroes the Allman brothers, though it was disgusting behaviour, and that was the general consensus in the media, with lurid headlines, that only went to promote the bands  career.

Yes, it's really sad.

As a kid, Genesis were my favourite band and I first met Phil at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in the early 70s. Later he moved to near Godalming and I used to see him about the town and in Waitrose.

I think he was a better drummer than he was vocalist and I lost interest/grew out of Genesis when Peter Gabriel went solo.

Phil seemed a decent bloke though and there are nice local stories about him.

Reading about Leonard Cohen and what a decent bloke he was. A photographer told of how, on the day of a concert at Hammersmith odeon, Len took him along to a reunion he  had  with his old landlady, when he was penniless, and  spent the afternoon chatting away to her, then helped with the washing up.
When  he got back to his hotel, he was runnning late, but despite the  urgings of t everyone around him,  when a young fan met him in the hotel  foyer with an armful of records to be signed, he sat down on the floor and  signed them all. He was half an hour late for the concert.
LC also used to take his band and give impromptu free concerts at psychiatric hospitals.

I heard this Cohen song the other day, just covered by the Specials for an album of Protest songs.




Amy Winehouse -



A lot of stuff coming out about the Beatles  break up and final album. I think this was their last live performance --

This is a clip of one of the bands that played, the Adam Sweet Band. They played an impressive set, including my favourite Rory Gallagher track (Secret Agent). I recommend them strongly, should they come your way.
