None because all my MP3s in the 'puter are in the HD, and I'm lazy to bring it back and hook up the headphones and listen to it.

 

Reminds me...

 

Last Monday, in a bad depressive mood (what else is new? <_< ), I took a cab going to my sister's office where I parked my car. Radio was tuned to one of our local inane awful crap that's called "music" nowadays. I ask the cab driver if I could change the station. He says "I dunno how to use that, I'm new." So I ask if I can change, and he says ok. So I tune it to the country's only classical music station. It's playing a particularly nice opera. Five minutes, cab driver says out loud "I feel sleepy!" and then inserts a cassette tape that plays inane music. Not content with it, he ejects tape, and presses a button to return the station to tune to the inane station.

 

My patience and conscience saved one cab driver from having his large intestine wrapped around his neck with his eyes on his fingers and severed tongue in his ass. Though either didn't stop me from spreading my germs through coughing and sneezing.

Dude!! Really??

 

Blame my girlfriend. She drug me to one of her shows a couple of years back. We hung around after the show for an autograph and ended up going out with Holly for a couple of drinks and breakfast at a greasy spoon. She's a nice lady and her music is like fungus....it grows on you after awhile.

 

Another one I can blame her for is the LA indie band Candypants. Fronted by Lisa Jenio- who happens to be the editor of Barely Legal magazine, it's some of the most clever music I've heard in a long time. We went to LA last July, and she was gracious enough to meet us, give us a tour of the Flynt Building (nothing like you'd think) and take us to dinner at the Dresden Restaurant, which was in the movie Swingers. Impressed a couple of Hoosiers.

Looking for my ... hmmmmm, don't know what to call him!!! My stepfathers grandson, name Lawrence buts I always still cll him what I always did ... Mugsy :D. He gave me a CD years ago of some of his music. He loves doing jazz best I think but plays lots of different syles :) All those Patzer's can sure sing, especially Country and Bluegrass. Voices are perfect for it and would give people like Garth Brooks a run for their money if they went that route. Most just sing for the love of it at family gatherings :)

 

Why that particular band called General Lee? I dunno :D

 

Lawrence Patzer & General Lee - One of the most versatile and entertaining dance bands in Manitoba, GENERAL LEE features the remarkable guitar and vocal styles of Lawrence Patzer. Considered by his peers to be a true "musician's musician", Mr. Patzer has been a professional for over 30 years. As an instrumentalist and arranger, he has worked as sideman and musical director for such featured artists as Matt Minglewood, Gene McLellan (of Snowbird fame) and Rita MacNeill.

As a songwriter he has written and published more that 100 songs for a variety of independent recording artists. Many of these songs have been Nashville produced and have aired on national country music and pop stations - gathering notoriety for such popular East Coast acts as Kim Albert ("The Devil his Due") and Jeff Morris ("Cellophane Girl").

As a bandleader Mr. Patzer has taken groups on tour in venues across Canada, the Caribbean, Germany and the Middle East (Dubai).

Blew it with the Tapestry CD. Put it on ready do sing along while washing dishes and discovered it was various artists doing Carole's songs :( I did listen to most songs to keep an open mind and just listen to the versions ... last straw came last son with Celine Dion singing .......... YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A NATURAL WOMAN ... her hubby obviously hasn't been able to turn her into a natural woman and she should NOT be singing that song. It needs a woman who knows how an actual natural woman actually IS, feels and expresses herself. Ouch ... wrong wrong SO WRONG person for the song! :blink:

Just listening to some old friends from back in the day (late 70's and early 80's) :) I had no idea they made an album/CD ... kinda back by personal demand from a lot of us I guess. Will have to order one if they have some left.

I'll go all in with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt doing

 

My Baby Don't Tolerate

 

 

 

I fold, espcially since I'm pretty sure that's Guy Clark over there on the far right. That's like pulling an ace from up your sleeve. :P

 

...the ultimate Father/Son resolution song.

 

Dry your eyes.

 

Pretty much the same licks as his "Let Him Roll".

The folky stuff got me remembering Sandy Denny. I remember I listened to her lots. I had bought an album, never heard of her before, and loved it. Wish I could remember what album. Some history and tunes at the following link, her life cut short at age 31. Remembering you Sandy Denny. Love your voice still as I listen to it online :)

That certainly is Guy Clark.....that's three pretty fair songwriters on stage at once.

 

Here's another old favorite of mine, Delbert McClinton singing Every Time I Roll The Dice.

If there's a sadder song, I have yet to hear it.
