Allison Krause and James Taylor duet:



I've always liked James Taylor's music, and I could listen to Allison Krause read the phone book.  From Budapest.  So, yeah, that's a good one!

    Yeah, I had the good fortune to see Allison Krauss and Union Station play with Tony Rice a few years ago.  Incredible show.

    Gillian Welch and David Rawlings are going to beplaying here in Atlanta in August (the 5th, at Variety Playhouse). I'm hoping to talk some family into going - we've caught them before, and they put on a great show, too.

    Tony Rice, for example:



    Tony Rice All Star Jam plays "Nine Pound Hammer"

    Lessee... That looks like Mark O'Connor on fiddle, a young Jerry Douglas on dobro, Tony on guitar... Sam Bush on mandolin... not sure who's on bass...

    Tony is one of my favorites.  To bad he doesn't sing any longer.

    Tony is one of my favorites.  To bad he doesn't sing any longer.

    IIRC, it's a degenerative disease of some kind... it is a shame, he had a solid voice. Hasn't diminished his playing one whit though. One of the best.

    From a link I found:

    Quote
    About the problem with Tony Rice's voice: it's called muscle tension dysphonia, and it originates and exists at the level of the neck or the larynx. Rice hasn't sung onstage or in a studio since the early 90s. What his fans probably don't know is that they miss his voice more than he does.
    Tony: “I've always enjoyed playing guitar so much more than my voice anyway. I think back to the Grisman years when I rarely sang. I didn't miss it then, and I can honestly say that I don't miss it all that much now. It may one day come back by itself; I don't know. A very reliable otolaryngologist - John Starling [formerly with the Seldom Scene] - and my two voice therapists assure me that if I want it back, I can get it. They have all warned me that it will take extensive therapy. I just haven't been interested in that enough to pursue it. It's gonna be very hard, because I'll have to isolate myself from the world and talk only to my doctors.

    It's painful if I talk long enough. I have good days and bad days, and days when I don't think about it, and days when I'd rather not talk to anybody, period.”

    I knew it was a medical condition, but not what.

    Allison Krause is a great musician, not a great singer though in my opinion.  She was a national fiddle champ, who still has great licks.  I liked her singing better when it was less trained and more exuberant.  Haven't found a good example yet.

    Was taking The Minions home on Thursday, when this song came on the radio.  Senior Minion #1 said "This is Papa's song, for all of us."  Do you know how hard it is to drive with tears in your eyes?

    No kidding!  She once told me "In the movie of my life, you will always be the hero!"  Had a hard time getting home after that one, too.  She always seems to know just what buttons to push to provoke that sort of reaction.  Rotten kid!

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    "I can walk" in a hammy Peter Sellers German accent. (skip to about 2:23-ish for the relevant bit)

    The new trailer for Baby Driver got this old classic stuck in my head.





    Though surprisingly enough, I really like the remix they used in the trailer. Wish I could find it online.

    EDIT: And I think I just found it:



    Did someone mention electronic versions of classics?

    Might be the fact that I'm part time historian, but when I hear "Wacht am Rhein" my first thought is the OKW code name for the counteroffensive that became the Battle of the Bulge.
