just to make things worse... I'm not a fan of Mick Hucknall either! Embarassed Sorry Debbie! Sorry Madame!

Yes folks the Griffin is in trouble... again! Rolling Eyes

For me, the young Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival - incidentally, John Fogerty played at Glastonbury this year and went down a storm... which is suitable for Glastonbury as the festival is usually as famous for it's mud as it's stars! Wink

I've only heard a little of the Mighty McGarrigles but I have loved what I've heard. I will definitely have to get an album of theirs.... and of Rufus too by the sound of things!

I do also like early rock and roll - Chuck Berry, Jerry Lewis, Carl Perkins, and I have Elvis' the Sun Sessions which is good fun too.

Clearly Charlsy, Beethoven's 9th is for you what Mozart's Clarinet Concerto is for me! I do love Wager too! The Ride of the Valkyries when there's a storm outside is dizzying and powerful. The winds blow, the sky rages and the Valkyries ride!

I have wide ranging tastes in music loving everything from classical to rock. But I really love the music from the late fifties/early sixties. I grew up on a remote farm without electricity, but with a battery powered radio turned on only for the news. Between the ages of 5 and 14 the only time I got to hear popular music was on my annual holiday at my grandmother's in the city. I didn't hear hear a lot of the fifties music until I was an adult.

David - I'm a Paul Simons fan. Love his lyrics.

Anyone who likes trumpet should check out Chris Botti on You Tube. Fantastic.

Griffin, you're the man !!! Ride of the Walkyries, hurray ! What a piece of music, built layer by layer, starting rather soft, then as each musical wave arrives, becoming that beautiful, terrible storm of sound. I am a bit partial to "Götterdämmerung", thanks to John Boorman's masterful use of it in his wonderful "Excalibur". There have been very few instances where music and images blended so perfectly. Ok, Coppola really knew how to use the Walkyrie !

Lately I am drawn to Mavis Staple's recent CD, "We'll Never Turn Back." She sings songs from the civil rights movement of the 1960's - powerful, haunting - the kind of music that begins deep in your soul and travles all the way through you.

I also agree about Paul Simon. He makes new music sound familiar and the familiar sound new. Listening to his Graceland CD always sets my mood right.

And Jubilant Sykes - amazing voice, wonderful music.

"Music that speaks to you" is this thread subject, so I can't leave out Janis Joplin and Leon Russell and especially Carolyn Hester. But I'm reacting to the artist as much as to the music--I wish I had the breadth some of you have!

Well it's Bluesfest here in Ottawa (ennui sur le Rideau as some wag calls it) and Wednesday' night's headliner was (wait for it) VAN MORRISON and he got rave reviews--Last night the headliner was Bob Dylan and a secondary venue featured Leonard Cohen-----and tonight George Thorogood and the Destroyers---indeed some would have to say "an embarrassment of riches"!!

David, who attends when V. Morrison and Dylan play? Do 20-somethings show up, or is it mostly people nearer the age of the artists?

Charlsy,

That's exactly it! The waves of sound building one on another until through great flashes of lightning and the hammering of Thor's mighty hammer Miolnir, the Valkyries come seeking the heroic slain to carry them to Valhalla - the home of the heroes!

a beeg contrast, but I also like Simon and Garfunkel, Janis is fabulous a Bessie Smith for the 1960s if that's not too sacrilegious! I also like Leonard Cohen. Oh yes, and as I'm listening to him at the moment, David Bowie.

Msue,

Woody Guthrie is my version of Mavis Staples, tho' I will admit that I haven't heard Mavis on her own. Mavis is the Latin name for the Nightingale I seem to recall so naturally she's a singer! Oh yes, and I like the Go-Betweens too... their song Cattle and Cane is like listening to a great short story writer.

Those concerts are a total mix of ages. There was a Dylan concert here a little while ago and I know a bunch of people my age that went. When I was in high school the first concert I went to was The Steve Miller Band. At that age my friends and I also saw Page & Plant, CCR, and Tom Petty wll while keeping up with bands like Gas Huffer and Pearl Jam. At the CCR concert we had a couple in front of us dressed for church and they weren't at all happy when we dropped our, um, contraband under their chairs. Teenagers have sort of a musical age of discovery and suddenly the sixties and seventies are back.

I am pretty much out of that now, but still try and explore new music. One up and coming band I totally recommend is called Mono in VCF.

Right know I've been listening to Amy Winehouse. She has this wonderful 60's British soul sound which is so refreshing compared to all the manufactered bubblegum music that's out there. I've also developed this infatuation with Indian Bhangra music. It's so catchy and infectious. I highly recommend the original version of Chaiyya Chaiyya or the Bollywood Joint remix featuring Panjabi MC. It's a lot of fun. Siukshinder Shinda is a great Bhangra DJ to.

bainst---we don't get exposed to much Bhangra here but wow, what I've heard really got me going!!

G.p.--Erin has it right according to my spies--really a cross section of ages go to these events. When the STONES were here last year (I think) there were all these interviews with grandparents going with their grandchildren. Really neat I think!
