Very nice K.D. Lang.

And from the same album, here's After The Gold Rush.  I generally don't hear lyrics well, but I pretty much remember the words to this song from the original; so it's easy for me to hear, and it's still a beautiful song, with amazing imagery, after all these years.  Strings are a bit heavy in this version, but it still works.

I used to love when Blue Moonshine covered "Helpless"... it remains one of the tunes I really miss playing. I hadn't heard the K.D. Lang cut of it either.

I've been rehearsing weekly with this guy... he's a pretty gifted guitar player but has never played with any accompaniment, and since it's all original composition, I have a clean slate to work with. Here are a couple of his tunes we're going to perform at a semi-formal dinner gig in a couple weeks.

Greg; I like the two tunes you linked.  Which instrument will you be using with him?

I might be on upright for a couple tunes in his set, that I think are better served with some drone-y bowed parts, but I'll be playing my custom fretless, "Chain-Links" for the rest... that bass has truly become a big part of my musical voice. :)  So much, that I feel a little bad about not playing the others as much. ::)

Jamie is an interesting cat to play with... major Grateful Dead fan, and through him I got turned onto some Phil Lesh influence I might not have otherwise been exposed to. The Celtic-flavored stuff he's doing right now are really an enjoyable challenge for me. Interesting meter/time signature things. ;)

Hello Edward,

just got a chance to listen to the links you gave,

Mr. Morris certainly captures you with all the fine melody, ( I will listen to his other Tunes on his youtube page)!

He reminds of Danish guitarist Finn Olafson!

I'm sure your upcoming gig will be quite memorable! Don't think the audience will be prepared for the onslaught of amazing sounds!

I was drawn to what Ian Melrose was doing in the background, though it was a bit hard to hear, so I went looking for more from him; and the first thing I found was this delightful cover of Smoke On The Water of all things.  Could be my favorite version of this song.

His tone, technique, dynamics, use of reverb, are all very nice.  Thanks for linking to him; will look for more from him later today.

Been listening to the Buckingham-Nicks album in my shop today... I have no idea who played bass on "Frozen Love"... might even have been Lindsey Buckingham himself, but wow, it's a handful. It was in my head all day, and I just had to try it.  :P

Earlier this evening in the kitchen, the words to Pickin' Up The Pieces started going through my head.  From the time I first heard Deliverin', Poco was a favorite.

Here's Crazy Love and Pickin' Up The Pieces live from 2004.  Members in this performance are Richie Furay, Rusty Young, George Grantham, and Paul Cotton.

Hey David,

Listening to Poco Reminded me of some Loggins & Messina!  1973!
