Brooks & Dunn – Play Something Country
Kick up your heels and let ‘er rip…!
What’s on your mind…?
Ah, now I know what you meant..
Aloha, Larue and Newt…!
hey, wait a minute …..
Some REAL Country
And of course, The KING Of Real Country Goes Honky Tonkin!
Good thing you combed the furry bangs aside.
Mamas please don’t…! ;-)
OK, splain – you’re a country boy?
*heh* The Big City was never my thang…! ;-)
Ach! Most of this post won’t load — no photo up top, hourglass keeps spinning for hours. But! I can post a comment, so all is not lost.
Hey, CTuttle! Up Against the Wall.
I think your caches need to be cleared.
Ooh, sorry to hear that CE…! Aloha…! ;-)
I could listen to Waylon all night long, Willie too.
*heh* My namesake about sums it up…!
Long Haired Country Boy
Heh, I’ve got about ten hours or so on DVD of old Texas Connection Shows, all hosted by Jerry Jeff.
What a hoss he is!!!
It ain’t real country, but I would like your opinion of the guitar picker in the black hat on this one.
Charlie Daniels was SO good until one day, he freaked out and went into Crusade Mode.
What a loss.
Just don’t bust out the cuffs, M’dear…! ;-)
Always been a fan of Roy, AND Albert!
I admit I am a rock n’ roll animal, but if good ole Hank doesn’t touch one’s soul, then nothin can!
He sure can fiddle around tho…! ;-)
Good tunes, Larue!
You can’t take the Honky Tonk out of the Girl…
*heh* Born To Boogie…! ;-)
Hank Williams was my ironing music in high school and still is!
How many of you felt the eathquake this morning? Just me? Well then.
It was just the right size. Exciting and no damage. My mom and sister got to feel it before they left for Omaha.
Aloha, TG…! ;-)
*heh* share the wealth, eh…? Aloha, Spocko…! ;-)
AND THE KILLIN’ GOEZ ON AND ON AND…
Citizen CTuttle and the Firepup Freedom Fighters:
EEEEdoggies!! Yeah!! Who’d a thunk it…a mangy sea dog from Hawaii playin fuckin’ country music to a bunch a burned out hippies and a few wannabees! The closest you got ta country music in the Navy was the sound you made playin yer lover’s guitar…comeon Brother CT, tell the truth now, where’d ya come up with this new country culture thing?
Seriously though, didja see and hear “Crazy Heart”…daayum, that was an incredible experience, mightta been the only country music “video” worth a tinkers
Great ta see ya here, Citizen CT, is this a steady gig between you and Sister Suzanne?
KEEP THE FAITH AND PASS THE AMMUNITION, IT’S STILL ALL ABOUT THE WARS!!
The original, Junior or Tres, Loo?
If that ain’t country…! ;-)
Citizen Norske…! Always a pleasure to see your fonts…! ;-)
Oh, the original. Hank and Dolly.
And even MORE Waylon
My all time fave Waylon…!
Keep on the Sunny Side.
P.S. Have ya caught the last Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert…Brother Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen and the lead guitar player from Rage Against the Machine play “The Ghost of Tom Joad”. If you folks haven’t caught it yet, comre on over Wednesday night and I’ll cook ya up some Walleye and you ken join my kids in listenin’ ta the scriptures of history.
Will the Circle be Unbroken. BEST! Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
For me it’ll always be Honky Tonk Heroes. That album hi did of Billy Joe’s stuff was just stunning.
Btw, I was a mangy ground-pounder like ya…! I did get to see Johnny Cash, Reba, Asleep at the Wheel, etc… in Frankfurt Germany…! I’ve never seen so much black leather congregated in one area before…! ;-)
“Always a pleasure to see your fonts!…”
Every time I read that salutation I check ta see if my zipper’s down… seriously, are you humpin’ the Late Late Night gig on some kinda regular schedule and is Suzanne still puttin in some time? If this is gunna be the regular late night rotation I may jest hafta make a donation ta the FDL pledge drive and stop by more often!
If You Wanna Get to Heaven…
the Carter song reminded me of Krauss,Harris and Welch
Took me until well into my late 30′s to come around to Hank, and others of his times.
Bob Wills, I flipped the first time I heard him. I loved country swing right off in my late teens.
Took a while to warm up to the Austin Outlaws, but by my mid 20′s I was all over Kris, Willie, Waylon, and Merle and others.
About the 80′s, country went rock/pop and lost me ever since.
But from Hank thru the 70′s, there was a lot of great music, be it poppish at times or not.
Now, Hank Sr. . . . most of his songs are played in many a camp jam or under a streetlight at a festival. I love them all!!! *G*
Somebody’s gotta give Suz some time off…! Sundays and Mondays I’ve got the great pleasure to host…! Btw, next week it’ll be Hawaiian…! ;-)
Yo CTut, nicely done.
Think it’s time for me to end yet another loverly day at the Lake with a little America the Beautiful
Jeebus, “Leon Russel sittin’ in.”
Much Mahalo, RBG…! The pleasure’s all mine, I tells ya…! ;-)
Hey, GREAT song, along with a hundred others!
But he’s so phreakin nutz anymore for the past two decades it taints the experience.
Another Of His Greats, Although Not Well Known. The album version is so wild and hot it’s frightening. By the 80′s, he’d gone off the deep end of the aryan gene pool.
Speaking of Reba…! ;-)
GREAT vid . . . love hearing other heroes talking about a hero!
I had a crazy ass FDL fundraising idea a couple of days ago but never followed up with it.
How about a buck in the kitty for every exclamation point?
I’m in. I’m in.
Great news…I’m gunna donate ta the marathon fund raiser just ta keep this Late Late Nite stuff rollin’…and maybe I ken stay up a few more times a week ta hear the tunes. And do ya have access ta some authentic music from the indigenous personnel on the Hawaiian Islands?
Heh, he wraps it all up into one song . . . always a classic that one . . .
!!!!!!!!!! = another $10 from me.
Shirt… I couldn’t possibly afford my bad habits…! Can I put it on my tab…? ;-)
RBG that is a trip Leon does play a mean the piano… how are you doing? Drive by good evening.
Cool. When I was a knee-scraper HW’s take on Kaw-Li-Jah was one of my favorites. I learned to read from record labels…
OK, just totaled all the exclamation points on this page up until now. There are 90.
So $90 it is.
Your credit’s still good in this watering hole…but don’t even think about buying a round on the house.
Thanks LKMod, it took hours but you were right.
Another legend… J.J. Kale…!
There’s hundreds!!! *G*
Perish the thought…! ;-)
Yet another gem!
Wow, maybe a good cleaning every week would fix you right up.
Ctut! Newt! RBG! Bigbrother! Larue! Norske! Mac! ThatGuy! LooHoo! BCT! CE! edve! spocko! Lurk! Good evening!
*sigh* He’s always right…! ;-)
Amazing! It worked!
Hail, hail, the gang’s all here…! Aloha, M’dear…! ;-)
I’ll raise you one Ray Charles. Best ever. Crank up the volume!
and 5 more.
hey CT, what’s the largest number of comments you ever got on a post that didn’t make the top ten list?
Their three Circle albums turned more DFH’s onto great pickin and the greats than any other artist ever did.
From Roy Acuff to Jimmy Martin to Doc Watson, they schooled this 18 year old when the first one came out! I knew about Doc, but not them others!!!
congrats on the hundred!!!! he exclaimed.
Getting creamed here…
I also had the pleasure to see this Gent in concert…! ;-)
Billy Joe Shaver is a hoss, and has been, for 40 or more years huh . . .*G*
Lotta folks not hip to Texas Country or Americana genre never heard of him, too . . . nice catch.
Not sure, but, your’s should’ve been there awhile ago…! 8-(
Hey, Sweets. Besos y embrazos. (I’m scared of exclamation points.)
Now that sounds like a challenge. Shall we see if we can top whatever the old number was?
Larue, a little later…remember Chicken Truck?? So good.
Randy Travis did a project a decade or more ago, that was a lot of bluegrass.
I was considerably impressed and pleased.
(no exclamations, Newt’s in deep enuff as is)
This song sent shivers down my spine when I saw him perform it live…!
Hi CT, everyone!
I got a cowboy song:
I got some really good rowing water tonight after yoga and did the crossing faster than ever. It was overcast and close to 100% humidity not much breeze and quite at 8pm. Sure was nice treat to end the day (almost). I got places to go early so sounds you brought your rowdy friends… http://www.spike.com/video/hank-williams-jr-all/2792046 have a good time and clean up the place when your done.
Never heard it I don’t think . . . all I know from John A is Seminole Wind, a GREAT song and always played in jams at fests . . .
What a GREAT vid . . . when did you get to see him?
Great tune, Margot…! Aloha, M’dear…! ;-)
So Loo Hoo…howse about Six Days on the Road?
Jerry Jeff And A Young Steve Earle
have a lovely night.
very nice tune that you selected for the general enjoyment.
if you’re looking for a challenge, look elsewhere.
As I noted up thread… I saw him at a Country Fest in Frankfurt, Germany… I believe it was ’87…! ;-)
*heh* All the rowdy ones showed up, eh…? ;-)
Dang, that’s great one.
As Billington says, There’s More Pretty Girls than One.
Good dawg, that’s Byron Berline on fiddle, and Sneaky Pete on pedal steel! Hillman on lead vocal, don’t know the others . . . . wow! Nice pick, hoss!
Oh, man bb, where are you?
One of the best collaborations evah…!
You’re still on my mind
Missed that upthread . . . lucky you, he was one I never got to see . . . .
I just love it. “Drink a cheeseburger, eat a six-pack…” lol
Country Roads w/line dancin’..
Or…there’s always Time Slips Away
:14 sec in Rawr phatamus!
…and 1:34 raw musical synchronicity :D
Nah. Taj does it much better.
CONGRATS on the 100!
How apt with Sen. Byrd’s demise…! Aloha, Sunny…!
Sweethearts! Gram Parsons!
I was in the back bay of Morro Bay…I live about four blocks from the pier.
An old chestnut
for our hoss
Giant Step! First time I’d heard it, then a year or two later, that song was in every club, bar and lounge being done by everyone!!! Second time I’d heard it was in Berkeley, ’70, I wasn’t even 18 yet, and Commander Cody And The Lost Planet Airmen blew me away!!! *G* We wuz drinkin beers, too!!!
Dang them were fun days when underage could get into a club and drink a few beers, go outside and spark one up.
Better me than Suz . . . lol
I had the divine pleasure to see his towering figure live at the old Kona Surf in the early ’80s…!
Still One Of My Fav Jam Tunes To Do
Yo Mac, in no way was my challenge directed to you personally…I just thought we could all rise to the occasion for CTut.
And, BTW…nice diary earlier today.
That album came out when I was in high school…always have been really fond of it.
and of Ry Cooder:
I got lucky and saw Taj with the tuba band at Fillmore, or maybe Winterland, forget which hall. ’72 at the latest, I think. I was still in love with the Take A Giant Step album . . . . he was masterful, always has been since, too.
thanks !!! I did think it was more of the old same. appreciate hearing otherwise.
and I’ll be damned if Tuttle doesn’t know that I’m in his corner.
Thank you. That was so good! Hadn’t heard Lyle do it before. Only Willie.
I just wiki’d Sweethearts, released in ’68! Wow, so long ago.
Love Ry Cooder . . . what a TREAT there to see Flaco!! Nice! Thanks!
Flaco, Willie, Augie And Doug
Man I miss that band . . . . .
Speaking of my homey…! An Albertan like me… and just as handsome I might add…! ;-)
How about a little more Ry?
Another homey knows how to do some Cohen…!
How to say “Thank you” and “Up yours” in the same comment.
ooo, that’s good
your sense of humor is lagging about 5 comments behind :)
and, uh, check the front page
I think Mac was just a little defensive, Newt…!
I saw Taj last year in Palm Springs, still really cool. He started really young.
Embargoing the exclamation point thingy now!
I am officially broke…
So cool! Here’s Emmy Lou with Last Dance.
Check out a few vids down on the right from that linky as Ry is jammin with Carlos Santana on ‘The Healer’.
Whoopsy linky, got Willie with Faron Young!
I’m about 20 behind already!
and into the kitty for another point.
Embargo now in force.
Unless FDL takes Green Stamps.
No, embargo in force.
Hoyt Axton, Evangelina
I was looking for Jerry Jeff Walker and Hoyt doing Lightning’s Bar, but alas no youtube for it.
Sorry about any earlier misunderstanding, we’re both just doing the best we can Along the Watchtower?
well, they cain’t take your keys.
Hoyt N Linda!
solid. that used to take all my juke box money.
Whoopsie! Here’s Emmy Lou.
That is a find.
IMHO, the most raucous song of all time, and the best headbanging brain frying screaming tune ya got to crank up of all time.
One of the few songs from the 60′s I can listen to over and over, still . . . .
Oh me too…I am so glad to see there’s another Flaco fan here.
Tuttle, this has got to be the most chocked-with-the-good-shit, tunefullest LLN evvvver.
can’t figure out how two hundred great songs got stuffed into a 160 comment sack………
(especially considering the ten thousand exclamation points already in there!!)
NIce. What a hoss HE was . . . them old Chi Town Sounds that Butterfield and Bishop and Bloomfield were schooled on. ;-)
She is just the best, isn’t she?
When Angels Sing
Can I switch to jazz. Les McCann and Eddie Harris. Listen for a bit before you give up. It’s really good.
Oh yeah, I love Flaco. I’ve got these old Texas Connection Shows hosted by Jerry Jeff Walker and Flaco’s sitting in with a LOT of the bands, including a great set with Tish Hinohosa . . . . he’s a hoss.
Back to Emmy, again . . . . lol
Yo Hoss…you talkin bout Paul Butterfield?
Pleeeeease tell me you didn’t count.
No comparison. And to think that she started out as a waitor just like everyone else!
Can’t leave out George Strait…! ;-)
Ocean Front Property
Oh Lord, it’s hard to be humble (with muppets!!!)
For CT Hawaiin cowboy music with yodeling http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3D-SgA_NJwk
Pretty good too
You like Tish Hinojosa?–me too.:)
Sorry dude, but the hall monitor was around this evening. You’re hosed.
Okay, if you’re doing Butterfield, I’m doing Winwood.
Country, Or Swing?
More Nails, Rhonda Vincent
Oh, and there’s another guy up there, can’t place the name…
Yep, he learnt good from them Chi Town blues dudes, didn’t he . . *G*
It is Paniolo Country after all…! ;-)
Got to see her at Strawberry Music Fest around 2003 or 2004. Sans Flaco, but she was awesome, with a full band.
If I’d not gotten the vids of Texas Connection from a pal, I’d never known who she was!
Wayne “The Train” Hancock
Clapton?? Best love song ever.
Love it….and I still Can’t Find My Way Home
GREAT catch, great pickers, great song.
How much fun is Derek Trucks (son of Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks) having?
Clapton transcends genres…! ;-)
Newton baybee you’re the onlyest one who counts.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jnowrxj_cbQ (skip the annoying intro)
listen to a loony tune.
Impossible, but true.
Another one! Seen Wayne three times over the years at same BerryFest (runs Spring/Fall every year just outside Yosemite). LOVE Wayne The Train!
Missed Spring, Hope To Make Fall Fest
I may have seen Boz 10 times.
first time I ever heard “Keys to the Highway” it was Boz singing it in front of the Steve Miller Band.
C’mon Mac… Lido Shuffle…! ;-)
I never saw that. Had to be 30 plus years ago, right?
I got to see Boz once, in ’70, SF. Winterland, I think . . . ?
Had the full band, did is solo album stuff, Loan Me A Dime and I’ll Be Long Gone were stellar, of course.
I took one listen to something off of Silk Degrees and he lost me.
His work with Stevie Miller was splended, along side harp player Norton Buffalo.
Saw THEM once, Monterey Fairgrounds, ’69 early, I think. THAT was a great band!
And There’s The Song!
That and Sailor, and the next three by Miller were incredible.
Then HE went wierd with Joker. Sigh.
“Children of the Future” was the album and it probably was the Miller Band’s first. around ’68
Even after he smoothed himself out with Silk, to see that act in the Great American Music Hall – stellar shows.
Stranger in a Strange Land.
*heh* Congrats, newt…! *g*
Love the Boz but in all my time at YouTube, I still have yet to find a good link to “Loan Me a Dime”.
While we look, Look What You’ve Done to Me
’69, hoss. *G*
Try 40 years.
Really got a good one there. Great tune and they are having fun. Thanks for that one.
loved that one.
and used to drive myself into flop sweat trying to play Porcaro’s hi-hat part in “Lowdown”.
took me months to realize that it was two sets of hats overdubbed.
One of the greatest venues in SF, or anywhere!
The shows I saw there . . .
Original Grisman Quintet, with Tony Rice, and Stephane Grapelli sittin in second set, among them.
Dead shows, Doc N Merle at least three times . . .
When I was three…! ;-)
Stevie had to be all of 19 then.
Long Gone, Hoss
I love that place. Saw BB King up close.
Roll Over Beethoven
Yeh, I recall somewhere his breakout with Spencer Davis he was 17 . . . . incredible.
There’s one I’ve never seen . . .
That is a great tune… hoss…! ;-)
My sister dragged me from Sac for my birthday, got tickets and until we arrived, I had no idea what the night was about.
you got to hear Grapelli live! Lucky Larue.
Tears me up.
Good lord, I had NO idea Leon was banging away in ’64!
First I’d ever heard of him was Mad Dogs And Englishmen, then he released an album that blew everyone away.
Late 60′s . . . wow, nice find RBG!
You win the internets for that one . . . very top shelf find!
Puppers, thanks for memories, tunage and chattage, it’s late and I got’s to zzzzzz . . .
Thanks CT, our most EXCELLENT host, once again! *G*
Congrats on the 200!
Mahalo for being a part of it Larue…!
One last thought . . . yeah, never in MY wildest dreams.
I had known of Hot Club du France since I was about 17, a friend was all into them.
They were incredible, and even now, that stuff is top shelf.
Grisman Quintet did a BUNCH of stuff like it, and covered a couple of Django’s tunes, too.
To see Grapelli, that was epoch.
And now, to the zzzzzz’s . . .
Stumbled to it, I promise!
Great tune Girl Look what you’ve done to me does a great job..Boz Skaggs in the mid 70′s Down two them left
Every dang time I hear it….nice find.
g’night Lucky Larue.
here’s one last Leon
Dang, Boss…! I’m behaving…! Lurk’s keeping me in check…! ;-)
Ain’t it good to know he’s got your back?
If I have enough… fuel.
Lordy. What a treat!
excellent time. thank you all.
That song was inspirational for me.
Good time. Thanks tuttle.
You betcha…! But, don’t tell him so…! ;-)
It looks clear from here. All comments are public.
For any of the newer folks, here’s one of the first videos I remember being posted in the comments at FDL., most likely by ET.
As I recollect, it had about 25k hits when it was first posted.
Aloha, Mac…! ;-)
Such Sibling love! My brother took me to see Norah Jones a month or so ago. Could not have been better. Her dad was sitting in the front row!
That’s a big number
Awesome what an ensemble. Thoughtful and powerful with such sensitivity. My college girlfriend shared that though this was better than the album. Good taste LooHoo and RBG
CTut…this was a great thread and it was fun to be able play in LLN for the first time in a long time.
I’ll leave you all with something from the old blogspot FDL masthead
