Your music, what are you listening to these days?

Recommended Posts

We have lots of threads on sound systems, system improvements, settings, but I've seen nothing on what folks here enjoy listening to. Not sure this topic will go anywhere, but let's see.

I have developed a strong love of "The Blues" over the last decade or so, so I tend to focus my listening towards that. I am also a big Dead, fan along with the Byrds, Poco, and many other groups from this era. These days I am listening to Eric Bibb & Jason Isbell in heavy rotation with other music.

COUNTRY -(there is no substitute )

 

Merle Haggard/George Strait/Loretta Lynn country?

 

Or Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride country?

 

Or Luke Bryan/GA FLA line country?

Mostly Willie's Roadhouse.

Some 50's on 5, 60's on 6, SPA or one of the other sappy channels when I want only background music & CNN.

 

When I switch over to live TV it's usually for CNN or AMC. Occasionally Amazon Prime Video for a movie.

Brandy Clark is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. Saw her live in a very small theatre last year and in concert with Jennifer Nettles.

Being an "old school" blues rock guy I had to check out Robin Trower's new release, Where you are going to and was surprised to find that he has not slowed down one bit. In fact he is doing the vocals on this cd. He does not have the pipes that his old bass player James Dewar did of Bridge of Sighs fame, but then who does?

I liked this song of the new release best of all. It's hard to believe that Robin still shreads a guitar like he does after after 71 years...

So what's happening musically in your Edge right now? I got this CD in heavy rotation, and it rocks!

For over a year now, I have only listened to music in the car with my family. When I am to and from work I only listen to podcasts and audio books to get learned.

Depends on my mood. I have been known to go from Strauss to Slipknot quickly.

I am looking forward to hearing this new piece of work from them. "The Rolling Stones have unveiled the first video from their upcoming blues album, Blue & Lonesome. “Hate to See You Go,” which you can watch above, is one of several songs originally made famous by Little Walter – including the title track".

I think there is a Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny cash 2 disc set, Squirrel Nut Zippers Christmas. Charlie Brown Christmas, and Eric Clapton From the Cradle. I have Brian Setzer, more SRV, and BBKing in the storage bin. Big on blues and rockabilly. Southern Culture on the Skids is a possibility at any time as well.

I just discovered a 2007 release by Levon Helm (RIP) "Dirt Farmer" that I really took to. I loved to listen to his voice on all his "The Band" work. He had just completed a fair amount of chemo therapy in his ongoing battle with cancer when he made this record. His daughter Amy sings background vocals on many of the tracks. I guess his voice is falls into "you either like it or not category", but I like it and his form of American roots music. Randy, if you are not familiar with this recording U-tube has the entire thing there, you might enjoy it?

Greg Lake died on Wednesday last week (Pearl Harbor Day) and so pulled out my "Trilogy" album - vinyl, of course. Put it on and smoked one of my favorite Connecticut Churchill's. Oooh, what a lucky man I was.

Yep, I'm liking it. As an aside, one of my blues friends is Bob Margolin. He was Muddy Waters guitar player in the 70s and early 80s. Bob is beside Muddy in "the Last Waltz". Thanks for sending that link. Always liked and respected Levon Helm for being a drummer and singer. I've done that myself.

I happened to stumble onto this band and thought others might get a laugh out of these videos also. Seems that Rev. Peyton knows his way around a guitar.

Country of course, only the good stuff though.

Charlie Pride, Conway, The Hag, Jones and such.

Mix in a heavy dose of bluegrass and Celtic

The wife on the other hand is 80s pop and classical.

I love classical but need to be in the right frame of mind for it.
