The biggest talent in OZ in the Seventies was this guy at the Muso's Club in the seventies for years
and
which he always ended up with.

This masterpiece of a woman has still not being matched, just listen to someone doing cover versions of her songs - they are pathetic

Captain Beefheart anyone? If you don't know it, treat yourself to the Safe as Milk album.
Ha. I thought that this would be the last place where I'd see someone talking up Beefheart. I like his stuff but it can be off-putting for some............
Most of his stuff takes some getting used to, but I love it. I reckon Safe as Milk, although a bit weird, (largely due to the use of a theremin) is really accessible and the poetry is great. It is one of my all time favourite albums and gets regular playing at my place. If you like Beefheart and haven't heard it..... .....do yourself a favour....

Yeah, Joplin's great, one of my all time favourite female vocalists. Another in a similar vein is Etta James. Do you ever listen to Etta James? Her versions of "God's Song" and "Lets burn down the cornfield" send chills.

Won't say he was the biggest talent in the country in the 70's but he was very talented.
I was in radio for many years and remember interviewing him a few times BBF, he was a really genuine nice guy as well.

Russell, that is amazing. I would go t Musos maybe every week a few times for years. At live appearances this is a taste of his variety and talents, I found him completely unique to other artists at the time. Considering they are his lyrics as well I rate him above Elton John. Many of his songs are even intellectually satisfying- they encompass psychology and philosophy.

I will get it all out of my system at once - has anyone else written an amazingly beautiful song like this one:
- taking on a tour of thousands of years of human survival.

This recent cover version brings back memories when decent song and voice was appreciated not like all the sissy boys' bands and rap music we have now

The sixties was a time of still widespread poverty due to large families and small salaries maybe more so in the countryside that suffered years-long droughts. And in many places you could go out and leave your house unlocked and nothing touched - or at least leave the windows opened with door weakly secured.

Some good ones here mate, my first LP was Deep Purple in Rock and I was hooked on DP ever since. Ian Gillan had one of the best voices and as for Ritchie Blackmore the guy is a deadset legend. Alvin Lee from Ten Years After too was also a brilliant guitarist and the clip you have here is the best he really lets it rip.

geezus some good memories - you have made my day !

What disappoints me is that where are the voices to replace Tom Jones, Janis Joplin, Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond, Cat Stevens and even Jimmy Barnes and Johnny O"Keefe.

lovin spoonful,bee gees,mamas and the papas glenn campbell van the man james taylor- the original j.t.

songs from this era normally had 3-4 verses plus chorus 4 -5 time.they also had big band backing which really added colour to the song.

i listen to shows like the voice and a lot of songs are freeform and i wonder how people like this style of music- the song comes to a crescendo and i think - so what.

i suppose its what you grow up with.

but really the beatles had no peer.their lyrics tunes and their interesting changes are timeless for me.



thats what i reckon anyway.
