M*CARBO RADIO: (What Are You Listening To?)


#1172

Sir Cliff Richard , OBE (born Harry Rodger Webb ; 14 October 1940) is a British pop singer, musician, performer, actor and philanthropist. Richard has sold more than 250 million records worldwide.[1] He has total sales of over 21 million singles in the United Kingdom and is the third-top-selling artist in UK Singles Chart history, behind the Beatles and Elvis Presley.[2]

Richard was originally marketed as a rebellious rock and roll singer in the style of Elvis and Little Richard.[3] With his backing group, the Shadows, Richard dominated the British popular music scene in the pre-Beatles period of the late 1950s to early 1960s.[4] His 1958 hit single “Move It” is often described as Britain’s first authentic rock and roll song; in the opinion of John Lennon of the Beatles, “before Cliff and the Shadows, there had been nothing worth listening to in British music”. Increased focus on his Christianity and subsequent softening of his music led to a more middle-of-the-road image and he sometimes ventured into contemporary Christian music.

Over a career spanning 60 years, Richard has amassed many gold and platinum discs and awards, including two Ivor Novello Awards and three Brit Awards. More than 130 of his singles, albums and EPs have reached the UK Top 20, more than any other artist.[5] Richard has had 67 UK top ten singles, the second highest total for an artist behind Elvis.[6] Richard holds the record (with Elvis) as the only act to make the UK singles charts in all of its first six decades (1950s–2000s). He has achieved 14 UK number-one singles,[7] and is the only singer to have had a number-one single in the UK in five consecutive decades.[8]

Richard has never achieved the same impact in the United States despite eight US Top 40 singles, including the million-selling “Devil Woman” and “We Don’t Talk Anymore”. In Canada, he had a successful period in the early 1960s, and again in the late 1970s and early 1980s with some releases certified gold and platinum.[9] He has remained a popular music, film, and television personality in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Northern Europe and Asia, and retains a following in other countries.

Richard has been a resident in the United Kingdom for most of his life, though in 2010, he confirmed that he had become a citizen of Barbados.[10] When not touring, he divides his time between Barbados and Portugal.[11]

I don’t care what anyone says-Susan Tedeschi has the voice of an angel! And her hubby ain’t half-bad on a guitar, neither!

And I think we need a two-fer!

OK, just one more


#1175

I was only 12 years old when the AIPF was held just down the road from my grandparent’s farm or else my butt woulda been there! (My Uncle Ron kept tellin’ his wife-Aunt Dee, that he was gonna ride over so he could ogle all the wandering topless hippie gals-LMBO!!!)
Here’s an early version of Dreams with Duane Allman and his incredible one-of-a kind playing style

May as well make it a two-fer (sadly, Duane was long gone by now)

Probably my all-time fav tune of ABB… …wait-no it ain’t-there’s way too many to choose from!


#1176

more ABB, thanks to DeepJams.net


#1177

Anything Rock or Country but a lot of Volbeat lately!


#1178

Love this one

#1179

Here’s a cover of Layla I’e not heard before featuring Derek Trucks

nice tune from another band called Hard Working Americans-here is Down To The Well

Now, I know most either love her or hate her but IMO she was THE greatest white female blues singer ever!


#1180

This guy burst on the blues scene at like 14 years old! He was touted to be the next SRV and is every bit as good, IMO. He got onto dope after he got known but has since cleaned up his act and is going like gangbusters since!


#1181

@SnuffySmiff I am familiar with his early stuff but haven’t heard much lately, I like blue on black. IMO there will never be another SRV ever


#1182

I couldn’t agree more!!!
I would have to say, of all the shows I have seen over the years, seeing S.R.V. in the Morrison Center, Boise, ID ( 5/10/89 ) with a crowd of less than 2000, is the crown jewel.
For me, when I watch him play it’s not just seeing someone with exceptional talent performing, it’s like the music and emotion is flowing through him.
In this first vid at 4.44 minutes watch his face. One of my best friends that passed away a few years ago, blues guitarist Neil Ricketts, dubbed this the “Lime Note”. I’m sure you will understand why. LOL

In Session is a blues album by Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan, recorded live for television on December 6 1983, at CHCH-TV studios in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It was released as an album on August 17 1999. The album was released on DVD on September 28 2010.

And for anyone that likes guitars. How about the old Flying V Albert king is playing? That’s awesome!

It’s interesting the things you might not know about people. For those of you who are baseball fans, I just learned this about someone I grew up listening to. Charlie Pride.

When Pride was 14, his mother purchased him his first guitar and he taught himself to play.[5] Though he loved music, one of Pride’s lifelong dreams was to become a professional baseball player. In 1952, he pitched for the Memphis Red Sox of the Negro American League. In 1953 he signed a contract with the Boise Yankees, the Class C farm team of the New York Yankees. During that season, an injury caused him to lose the “mustard” on his fastball, and he was sent to the Yankees’ Class D team in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Later that season, while in the Negro Leagues with the Louisville Clippers, another player (Jesse Mitchell) and he were traded to the Birmingham Black Barons for a team bus. “Jesse and I may have the distinction of being the only players in history to be traded for a used motor vehicle,” Pride mused in his 1994 autobiography.[8]

He pitched for several other minor league teams, his hopes of making it to the big leagues still alive, but the Army derailed this. After serving two years in the military, he tried to return to baseball.[8] Though hindered by an injury to his throwing arm, Pride played three games for the Missoula Timberjacks of the Pioneer League[9] (a farm club of the Cincinnati Reds) in 1960,[10] and had tryouts with the California Angels (1961) and the New York Mets (1962) organizations, but was not picked up by either team.[10][11]

When he was laid off by the Timberjacks, he moved to work construction in Helena, Montana, in 1960. He was recruited to pitch for the local semipro baseball team, the East Helena Smelterites, and the team manager helped him get a job at the local Asarco lead smelter.[9] The lead smelter kept 18 jobs open specifically for baseball players, and arranged their shifts so they could play as a team.[6] Pride batted .444 his first year.[9]

Pride’s singing ability soon came to the attention of the team manager, who also paid him to sing for 15 minutes before each game, which increased attendance and earned Pride another $10 on top of the $10 he earned for each game. He also played gigs in the local area, both solo and with a band called the Night Hawks,[6] and Asarco asked him to sing at company picnics.[9] His job at the smelter was dangerous and difficult; he once broke his ankle. He routinely unloaded coal from railroad cars, shoveling it into a 2,400 °F furnace while keeping clear of slag, a task which frequently gave him burns. In a 2014 interview, Pride explained, “I would work at the smelter, work the swing shift and then play music,” said Pride. “I’d work 11-7. Drive. Play Friday. Punch in. Drive. Polson. Philipsburg.”[5]

Between his smelter job and his music, he made a good living in the Helena area. He moved his wife and son to join him and they lived in Helena until 1967, purchasing their first home there, and with their children Dion and Angela being born at the local hospital.[9] The Pride family moved to Great Falls, Montana, in 1967,[5] because Pride’s music career was taking off and he required quicker access to an airport.[9] The family ultimately left Montana and moved to Texas in 1969.[6] In a 1967 interview with the Helena Independent Record , Rozene commented that the family encountered minor racism in Montana, citing an incident where they were refused service in a restaurant and another time when a realtor refused to show them a home, but she felt that the family endured less racism than she saw leveled against local Native American people, whose treatment she compared to that given to black people in the South.[6] Pride has generally spoken with fondness of the near-decade he spent there. “Montana is a very conservative state…I stood out like a neon. But once they let you in, you become a Montanan. When the rumor was that I was leaving. They kept saying, ‘we will let you in, you can’t leave.’"[9]

On June 5, 2008, Pride and his brother Mack “The Knife” Pride and 28 other living former Negro League players were “drafted” by each of the 30 Major League Baseball teams in a recognition of the on-field achievements and historical relevance of 30 mostly forgotten, Negro-League stars. Pride was picked by the Texas Rangers, with whom he has had a long affiliation, and the Colorado Rockies took his brother.

The Marcus King band with Warren Haynes

With one great pair of legs but the poor gal can’t dance worth diddly-yet she is still quite easy on the eyes and the ears,
this is Grace Potter and the Nocturnals along with Warren Haynes doing a cover of ZZ Top’s ‘Tush’

a little bit from Devon Allman’s Honeytribe the son of Gregg Allman-sounds like he got his daddy’s voice


#1186

Wouldn’t ya know it-Devon Allman has gotten together with Dickey Betts’ son named Duane(well, imagine that! )and went on a huge tour that I just found out about and the very last gig is tonight in Tampa…


#1187

@SnuffySmiff Wow, I didn’t know that either. Going to be a good show no doubt.

@GOBLIN

My mom, rest her soul LOVED Charlie Pride! Even my dad had a few of his albums-which shocked the absolute hell outta me!


#1191

Never heard of this group before discovering DeepJams but if Warren plays along then it’s all good
And no wonder! Living legends Warren Haynes, Billy Gibbons, Robben Ford and Walter Trout join young guns Chris Duarte and Eric Gales to aid Lopez in crafting a briliantly pure and edgy blues album <Info about this band

Got to see George and the boys live at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta way way back in the day.-one of the best concerts ever! They really put on a show-nearly 3 and a half hours long. Worth every penny!
Some really nice eye candy in this vid. too!
