Frank Sinatra
Steppen Wolf
Goo Goo dolls
Grand Funk Railroad
The list goes on.. various genres, but mostly classis rock.

Occasional country when something is on that I like.. Liking country nowadays is a lot like liking Jeeps. You really have to specify what you prefer. If I told someone I like Jeeps, they may think I'm referring to the new Cherokee or the Compass. Same as country. They may think I like Taylor Swifty or Hunter Hayes.

OK, but remember, you asked...
About three years ago, it was a boring evening. I was noodling around YouTube and decided to look up some Russian music. Our family had an interesting collection of LPs growing up, one was Russian music that I enjoyed playing, just once in a while. I clicked on a thumbnail and found myself watching an intriguing video, and while I didn't understand a word, I enjoyed it. That turned out to be Tina Karol (actually Ukrainian). Some days later, I clicked on another thumbnail, and found yet another intriguing video. That turned out to be Jasmin, and I was hooked.

I never had a hobby that "stuck", but this turned into one very unusual, entertaining and educational hobby. I've got a little over 600 songs at this point, mostly the lady vocalists, but an interesting mix. Each with their own style and sound. Singers you never heard of, Jasmin, Tina Karol, Alsou, Ani Lorak, Chi-Li, Kristina Orbakaite, Marta, Nyusha, Sofia Rotaru, Vera Brezhneva, Yuliya Savicheva, Zhanna Friske and many others. At some point I started translating their songs, at first an experiment (Google Translate is an amazing tool), as it progressed, more in earnest. The translations aren't perfect, but you understand the song. I've got on the order of 200 songs translated. It keeps me out of trouble.

It's neat looking at a different culture. A culture that for me was so many years "behind the iron curtain". I see so many similarities, people are people, but don't worry, I'm still "American", just enjoying a little Russian music...

How's that for different?
I always liked different. smile

By the way, that is Tommy Shannon on bass in the Johnny Winter concert I posted above. As you SRV fans know, Tommy later played bass of SRV.

Early Neil Diamond (his Bang label material) is awesome!! Kind've folk-rocky. Check out Johnny Winter's "Birds Can't Row Boats" (Pacemaker label 45 from 1966). KILLER tune!!

Yes I am familiar with Birds Can't Row Boats. It was one of a couple songs Johnny wrote to be Dylanish. The other was Avacado Green. I have probably 150 CDS and Concerts, basically every Johnny Winter CD I could get my hands on, all the Live Bootleg Series, etc. I guess that is obsessive, but it is great stuff.

I'll have to look into that early Diamond stuff.

I see you like ELO (one of my faves as well!). You should check out Jeff Lynne's pre-ELO band The Idle Race. I just picked up a mint promo original pressing of their 1968 "The Birthday" lp. KILLER stuff!! Sounds just like ELO,only a few years earlier.


I'd probably like it then...


Here`s The Idle Race. Hope you like :^)

I like Wilco, Built To Spill, Wheezer, Modest Mouse. When I need something different I like Honky Tonk or even more different, "western" music such as Dave Stamey.
