Or for an earlier version, try Prince Partridge. Love Buck Owens songs.
"Love's gonna live here" always does it for me. Have a friend who was
in Bakersfield when he passed on. Whole town went into mouring.
Baby Take Off Your Dress - Joe Cocker
(Can't listen to that song without visualizing Kim Basinger
stripping to it in 9 1/2 Weeks)
Eileen - Keith Richards - recorded post humously (?)
(He's been dead for year right? )
Holy Mother - Erci Clapton
(there's a riff on this one that screams/pleads from the
depths of hell)
The Extremist - Joe Satriani
The Stars Spangle Banner - Hendrix
(patriotism and glory as seen by the guy being shot at and
bombed, surrounded by the dead and dying)
Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits
(Knoffler can do kick as rock riffs or heart tuggers that'll
bring tears to your eyes)
Lay Lady Lay - Dylan - when he was actually singing
Just about anything by ZZ Tops (they do minor variations
of the same song - over and over and over again - and it
still kicks ass)
Blood on The Saddle - Tex Ritter
A Cripple on His Deathbead - Skip Spence - OAR album
he did EVERYTHING on it - played all the instruments,
wrote and sang the songs and recorded it all himself
trying to get out of a contract with Warner. The
"business" fried him - but once in a while, with a mike
in front of him and a guitar in his hand he'd come
back from where ever he normally was. If you were
lucky enough to be there it was something you remember
for a LONG time.
Anything by Les Paul - what a freakin' genious in so many
areas. Every electric guitar player should bow their heads
at the mention of his name. The Moody Blues should
send him a check every month - forever.
Time - The Chambers Brothers (plus a red haired irish
Poncho and Lefty
Always on My Mind - Willy Nelson
I have a DVD called Music For Montserrat (Arrow, Jimmy Buffet, Eric
Clapton, Phil Collins, Elton John, Mark Knopfler, Paul McCartney, Carl
Perkind and Sting.)
Mark Knopfler does a version of Brothers in Arms with a full orchestra
( IIRC conducted by George Martin at the Royal Albert Hall.)... let me
just say this... if that doesn't give you goose-bumps, you are not
Maybe that is the version you have. (McCartney's rendition of Golden
Slumbers is worth the price of the DVD alone.)
No shit, eh?
PS, did ever hear any Chet Atkins and Mark Knopfler 'duets'?
I don't play them often, because every time I do, I put my Tele away
in its case for a few days.
