I have not heard them, but DS flew across the country to see them in Houston last year. I defer to his tastes in recent music. DD met him there, and they both enjoyed the concert.

Through this discussion I discovered the NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert channel on YouTube. Lots of great mini concerts to be enjoyed, featuring a wide variety of artists. Sometimes it is worth scanning through the "Up next" listing.

This morning's "find" that I'm currently enjoying is: Peter Frampton: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert - YouTube
NPR Music wrote:]I could walk by Peter Frampton on the street and not recognize him. His long blond hair, which shines like a halo on his album Frampton Comes Alive! may be gone, but as soon as he sat behind the Tiny Desk and began singing, 1976 came rushing back.
Totally agree.

The Residents--Meet The Residents (1974) on Spotify. Pretty bizarre stuff--makes Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa sound normal. I had heard a few of their songs here and there over the years and was pleasantly surprised to see what appears to be their entire discography available on Spotify.

This is an excellent cover!

From the same band, an 80's "flashback" "Into the Night" with a vocalist better than the original IMO:

Tonight I'm listening to Passenger. Let Her Go (Official Video) has gotten lots of air play but there are many other great songs. My favorite song of his might be All The Little Lights.

I've been hooked on this entire first album by Bedouine lately. Her simplicity and unpretentiousness are refreshing. I also think she's a talented songwriter.

If you browse through the tracks you might find a foothold for appreciating her music.

I was thinking of my deceased brother today, so I played some of his favorite music.
Brought back memories of our time together when young. Bittersweet, for sure.

Ferlin Husky (lots of gospel and country)
The Everly Brothers

And, played some music by the group DW and I saw in our first concert, Three Dog Night.. As it turns out, the band will be playing March 15 at Busch Gardens. We have had season passes for years, so we will probably be there.

I have fond memories of Three Dog Night. The summer of 71, I spent six weeks traveling through Germany and Austria with a high school group. One of our members brought a Three Dog Night cassette, I think it was Naturally, and we played it over and over.

I recently acquired an internet streamer that's tied into my main music system. It's cell app allows for 20 presets and searching by genre, and with more stations than anyone could audition, see https://www.internet-radio.com/ it took me awhile to find 20 CD quality stations I liked with top sound quality across the different flavors of Rock, Pop, Jazz, Singer-Songwriter, Blues, Country, Classical and Lounge. I just pick one to suit the current mood... I was listening to Singer-Songwriter last, and will be again in a few minutes.

Reading a book called "1973 - Rock at the Crossroads" which has 33 chapters, each primarily covering one album released during the year with extending material on the artist.

Chapter one covered Bowie and Elton John - I just listed to "Panic in Detroit" by Bowie. I hadnt heard it....very interesting song.

Each night Utube will provide either official videos or official live performances of bands. Lately I have been watching Rush - Neal Peart (RIP) quite a drummer. Those 3 Canadians had quite the sound.

I'm listening to the Grateful Dead's concert at Barton Hall at Cornell University on May 8, 1977. This was released a couple of years ago as part of a May 77 boxed set that I didn't buy, but opted instead for just the May 8 Cornell concert, which was offered as an option. It is truly an outstanding show. If you're a Dead fan and have never experienced it, definitely seek it out.

In the Grateful Dead community, this is regarded as one of their best concerts, or at least one of the best recordings in circulation. From the Library of Congress notes when the show was added to the National Register....

“May 8 is among the most collected, traded and downloaded concerts by any band ever,” says noted Grateful Dead historian Blair Jackson. “That's not hyperbole, either. The original, pristine recordings of this show started circulating among tape collectors shortly after the concert and quickly became a favorite of everyone.”

“Renowned taper Jerry Moore's meticulous recording became the most-commonly traded version of what is, unquestionably, an outstanding show,” states long-time Long Island Deadhead Charlie Rogers. “Add a cool concert poster and throw in a few salty tales about the travails of the weather, the problems getting in, and the Animal House-like debauchery going on inside. Top it off with a killer set list and you've created the legacy of May 8.”

i tried to copy and paste a picture of the concert poster, but no go. I guess I need to delve into the Bogleheads FAQs to figure this out.
