Reading over your replies as ressurected (?? spelling) SO many memories
How could I have forgotten Paul Simon who was the reason why I learnt to play the guitar
And talking of which.. I've had a major domestic since I failed to include my Martin D28.. she's had the major sulks ever since
There's a couple of "endearments" that have raised my eyebrows.. the ELO Mbo?? .. I won't say I didn't like then.. indeed some of their tracks got the old foot taping, I'm just wondering why they are a "Love of your life".. now don't get me wrong, I never condemn anyone for their musical tastes.. heck mine are diverse enough as it is.. unless of course they like the Clancy Bros or the Spinners (here I'm ducking to avoid low flying household objects)..
I can't even begin to list my loves in the world of blues cos it just about encompases everyone, though Robert Johnson must be up towards the top along with Elmore James and Sonny Boy Williamson
Áine you have aroused my curiosity as I've never heard of most if not all the Irish artists you mentioned.. yeah okay I'm English and know diddly squat.. I'd like to learn more about your "favourites".. please drop me an email with any info.. mick@prof.co.uk
No doubt we'll get more "love stories" posted here.. let's hope the 21st century is remembered in years to come for its love rather than its wars..
Peace and love to everyone

Mick, there are many reasons why I love the Electric Light Orchestra. So many to say...so many to say. First, let me say that I never experienced ELO firsthand. I was born in 1978, the hight of their career, and was only 7 when they broke up in '86. I heard one of their songs on a Classic Rock station (I had only been listening to rock musiv for less than a year then) and later bought one of their records at an "antique" shop for $2.50. I became hooked by their catchy sounds, great lyrics, and their quasi-classical stylings (I like classical music very much). Most impressive is Jeff Lynne, who was the lead singer, songwriter, and producer--he has such a hold on creating good music--there's not one song he wrote that I don't like. After the band broke up, he went on to produce his idols, the members of the Beatles in their solo endeavors, including George Harrison's "Cloud Nine," Ringo Starr's "Time Takes Time," and most recently, Paul McCartney's "Flaming Pie," as well as all the great Beatles "lost songs" like "Free As A Bird." Well anyway, here I am 3 years later and own all but 4 of their albums (soon to be 3...) I am very influenced by their music, and you can detect hints of it in my ELO/Celtic mix, because of them I love cellos, and I even can imitate Jeff's voice. All in all, I must say that they're my favorite band in the world, and their music is (well, almost) the best music of all! THAT'S WHO I LOVE!

--Mbo (BTW my song "What Did I Do" is highly influenced by them, and incidentally, is my most popularly requested song!)

Mbo
First off you've got to "come clean".. it's my quest if you like for the new millenium.. i.e. get everyone out of the protective shields and declare themselves on the internet, if not elsewhere..
I'm Mick Lowe and want everyone on the mudcat/web to know it..
As for ELO I admire all you say about them, especially Jeff Lynne. I must admit my view of them is slightly different as I have traced the career of Roy Wood from the Move.. through Wizzard and into the ELO and having seen Roy Wood several times in whatever guise, have always been struck with the impression that he has sought out the world of music as a profession rather than through love.. I can't help get the feeling that the output of whatever group he has been involved with, is more contrived to make money rather than being an artistic stand.
That's not in any way an attempt to ignore any "& advances/ground breaking/etc.. that Roy Woods has done in the world of pop music.. I think Wizzard were the first group to use cellos.. no doubt I'll be corrected if wrong.
Although I wouldn't place ELO at the top of my list of groups who have a profound influence on the way my personal musical career has progressed, I some how take great delight that they have in influencing yours Mbo
If it were not so quite late here on my side of the pond I'd expound further on other groups who have the "classical" feel as to their music

Alright, Mick. I'm Matthew Richards and I LOVE ELOOOOO! BTW Roy Wood was in ELO for their first album, in which they used cellos--he left before their first single, the epic "10538 Overture" was released. He later formed Wizzard, and ELO had no more to do with him. I've never listened to any of Roy Wood's music--ELO's my bag. Watch out, "What Did I Do" may show up soon on the Mudcat Songbook.

Musically, I have such a long and diverse list, I had to categorize it to make it possible to wrap my brain around it.

First, of those who are gone: Michael Callen, with the Flirtations when he sang with them; Patsy Cline; Reverend Gary Davis; Steve Goodman; Mississippi John Hurt; Billie Holliday; Alberta Hunter; Bob Marley; Phil Ochs; Malvina Reynolds; Stan Rogers; Paul Robeson; Hank Williams; and Kate Wolf.

Next, those in my favorite sort of music, topical, or political, or social change related, or songs of freedom and struggle, or whatever: Eric Bogle, Ronnie Gilbert, Kim & Reggie Harris, Si Kahn, Charlie King, and the band he used to play with, Bright Morning Star; Magpie; John McCutcheon (before he sounded so much like a rock musician on some numbers); Tom Paxton; Faith Petric; Utah Phillips; Peggy Seeger; Pete Seeger; and Sweet Honey in the Rock.

Lastly, from other living artists who perform in whatever sub-genre of folk music they want to: Gordon Bok, The Bobs, Bruce Cockburn, Iris DeMent, The Copper Family, Finest Kind, Bob Franke, Nanci Griffith, Priscilla Herdman, both solo and with her trio; Vance Gilbert; Tom Lewis; Lyle Lovett; Northampton Harmony; Garnet Rogers; Samite; Saffire, as a group, or singly; Helen Schneyer; Ed Trickett; Andy M Stewart, solo or with Silly Wizard; David Wilcox, Cheryl Wheeler; the original a capella Watersons; Dar Williams; and Lucinda Williams.

I've got a lot of love for my favorite artists, my family and friends, people at Open Circle at the Mermaid, especially Rich and Joann, who let us use the room at the Mermaid, even though we don't drink as much as some other folks; the people who make the Folk Factory, the Cherry Tree, the Getaway, Clearwater Festival, Old Songs, Falcon Ridge, and the People's Music Network happen. I'm also holding on to some love for some leftist, folky man who's bright, funny, and handy with his hands-I'm taking applications!

I am particularly fond of the planet Earth, and am sorry that so many future generations will not be able to see it in its full glory before we wrecked it; and I am privileged to have lived at the tail end of it, and have worked a little to try and slow the mess down. I love all the extraordinary things that we can still see, but that are dying and will not last the next century -- the Serengeti Plain and most of central Africa, the last remnant of the true ancient world; the glories of SouthEast Asia, which will be over in 50 years; the black rhino and the Java tiger; the cheetah and the panda; and other lesser known species going under at a rate of 20,000 per year. The richness of the oceans and seas, now draining away. The possibility of finding a part of the world unsaturated with the presence of mankind. They will not know the wild spaciousness we have seen, and they will be poorer for it.
yours, Peter T.

Mbo/Matthew.. thanks for that.. do you feel better?
And anyone else excuse me I hate it when I've missed a thread for a day or two and have to keep scrolling up in order to find points of reference.. so bear with me...
Neil.. are we related.. though I must admit I don't know your Z
Emily.. who is Brian Bowers?.. tell us more...
Steve you were doing great.. i.e. I was nodding along with you until that is you hit the "Flintstones".. here I am unfortunately going to have to take you to task.. possibly because my 5 year old daughter insists on watching any/every cartoon on the Cartoon Network.. but.. how can I put it?.. The Flintstones are CRAP.. I can bear the Rugrats, I like Hey Arnold.. I enjoy Doug.. but .. okay let's not beat about the bush H&B have never yet come up with a decent cartoon.. their format is worse than Disney.. it's below infant school level.. Yogi Bear/ Fred Thickstone.. lets take the same charater and transpose a bit.. we're talking Roger Myers and Itchty and Scratchy in down mode..
And what else can we attribute to Hannah & Barabrian.. Scooby Doo.. God help us.. I'm cringing even now thinking about the rest...

If you're going to cite a cartoon character there is only one worthy of recognition (apart from the Simpsons) and that has got to be the deity of all cartoons.. Bugs Bunny..
So I'll let you off Steve cos you then went on to mention Jethro Tull.. so you can't be all bad..(Seasonal Grin)..
Each to us own.. we can't all like or be forced to like the same thing otherwise we'd be living in Orwell's 1984..
Let's hope we continue to enjoy the liberty of saying what we like, criticising what we will, but above all takning it all in the homour it was intended..
All the best to all who have deemed it worthwhile to contribute to this thread

Mick, I am not sure how I should take your "strong" words re the Clancy Brothers and anyone who likes them....SEG! Though I think I shall forgive you none-the-less.

Great thread...only wish I knew half the artists listed. LOL! Though I do know Brian Bowers for one song only....The Scotsman (which I sang for you, Mick, on one of the tapes I sent ya...)

Let's see, I'll add to my list: Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention...Albion Band...too many more to add.

Brian Bowers is a folk singer/auto harp player. The only album I've heard of his is "The view from home." This is all the real info I have on him. My dad has "The View From Home."

If I had to try to describe him, I'd say he has kind of a simular voice to Bill Stains. But more auto harp, less guitar.

Emily, correct me if I'm wrong (it happens often enough).

Question for Caitrin.....

katlaughing had a question about some lyrics and I tried to help her identify the artist but failed miserably. After thinking about it some more I thought it might have been a song by Counting Crows...but a lyric search of various web sites devoted to them didn't produce any results. Could you click here and tell me or her if these lyrics ring a bell? Thanks.

Mick,

I agree with a lot of what you say, couldn't stand Scooby Doo, but I'm sticking with Fred and Barney, although there is no question that it was a cartoon version of the Honeymooners. But I enjoyed it.

Now as far as cartoon characters go, Bugs is my all time favourite. I loved his attitude. Warner Brothers were certainly the masters of cartoons. Foghorn Leghorn (now I say listen when I's talkin to you son), Yosemite Sam (when I says whoa, I means whoa), Pepe Lepew, Daffy, the whole bunch of them. Brilliantly written stuff. I never was a Road Runner or Tweety fan though.

he tells stories and makes you feel loved.

I can't stomach the cartoons I did as a kid...though Bugs Bunny might be the exception--if I had to watch any. And I couldn't ever stand "Pepe le Pew" or however the name was spelled....

I will admit that some of today's animated shows are growing on me...Rugrats...Simpsons (though I never have the time to watch them...and am usually outvoted)...then there are lots of Children's storybooks now animated that I like: Little Bear; Franklin; Kipper (though I am partial to Tiger)....

and to get on the music topic again: I didn't mention either...The Andrews Sisters, or Perry Como....heck, I love the Big Band era and Balladeers of yesteryear! (Well before my time!)

I know that Bart Simpson is done by that woman, something Cartwright. Thomas the Tank Engine was narrated by Ringo Starr, right? Sideshow Bob was done by Kelsey Grammer, and Bugs, Daffy, and Tweety were all done by Mel Blanc. I know Wallace is done by a well-known British actor, but I can't remember his name, he used to be on this show...

Does anyone remember "Toxy and The Toxic Crusaders"?

"Toxic Crusaders--they're gross--but they still get the girls." I never watched that one. It looked stoopid. How about "Mr.Bogus"? he was pretty cool. And another old favorite of mine "Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers." It had that classic line my sister and I still do--Chip & Dale fly throw someone's window on a paper airplane. When the come out the other side of the building, there's a toaster hanging by it's cord off the airplane. Dale says "WOW! Look what followed me home, Chip! Can I keep it!"

Ha! Classic!

As for Itchy and Scratchy, there was an episode where they tried to ad a third charactor and Homer met the voice of itchy and scratchy. Mick, is the charactor in that episode the same (or based on) the person who really does their voices? As for Side Show Bob, I know Phil Hartman did a lot of classic Simpsons charactors (like Linol Hutts and more). If I had to guess, Phil would be my answer. Would I be right Mick?

Being a product of the 60's, I gerw up in the Hannah Barbara generation. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I liked them. Hong Kong Phooey, Jabber Jaws, and Josie and the pussy cats. What can i say, they were on on Saturday morning when I got up before the rest of the family. I never liked Scooby doo, but my 5 year old daughter loves him now from the cartoon network, I still don't. Also the Rugrats is funny and we both enjoy it. She loves CATDOG and I hate it. Disney movies will always be great movies to me, but then I grew up with 70's cartoons, so what do you expect.

As for who I love. In descending order, my partner Andy, my daughter Drew, my parents, my psuedo daughter Sarah, my music and all the friends that have brought the music to me and enabled me to play with them. I was a fan of old time and folk music for about five years before I decided I wanted to play it.The encouragement and support from all the other musicians when I started was wonderful. The community that we have become a part of in the Florida Folk Music scene is extra special. At the festivals, there is a sense of a small town community. It's like a family reunion of what your family would be if you could hand pick them. My hand picked family includes JU, Wanda, Billy, and Andy. The music we make together exceed anything we could do separately. When together, there is nothing better. I just hope we can play again together real soon.

Our lives have been a very real study in constrasts this year. Making a CD, playing at more festivals than ever, getting a Grammy nomination, losing parents, dealing with life threatening cancer, spending lots of quality time with people we love and respect. Through all this, the bottom line is I love life and all the challenges it gives us, and if it don't kill ya, it will only make you stronger.

To life strength, faith and love, Kristi

Such joy at finding Northwesterners. As far as Yakima goes, Former Yakimite is right, it's pretty much the armpit of the Northwest. But, as in all things in life, you have to do with it what you can. We have a SMALL folk community, some concerts, and a yearly festival, but other than that, you've got to travel for anything worthwhile.

Darlin' Em, you probably should have seen Heidi Muller. She's definately worth it. All of her stuff is available on Folk Legacy Records. She does a lot of good music, as well as workshops, and teaching mountain dulcimer. Her "Good Road" is the theme song for our local folk radio show. I can't recommend any one album. She's a good writer, and she writes to suit her voice. She writes a lot of homegrown stuff. Her best writing, in my humble opinion is her "Average Woman". I also love "Casseopeia" (it's the best song ever written about the god-awful drive on Hwy26 to Othello) Other good ones are ones she does with Dan Maher(another cutie). "Long Way to Another Friend" and "Don't Let Me Come Home a Stranger" spring to mind. If you have Dan's "Winter Whisky" album, she's singing with him on "One More Time". I think I have a website saved somewheres.....I'll look for it after a cup of tea. Sending love right back 'atcha. Elle

Benjamin, JenEllen: Around Yakima, I used to love fishing on Dog Lake early in the crisp mornings, Golfing at Westwood West, fresh cut asparagus in the spring, juicy sweet peaches (Red Havens), an occasional Ike triumph over Davis H.S., Softball games at 16th and Nob Hill in the snow. Seattle is really nice on the waterfront, Pike Street market, the Aquarium, underground tour, Mariners games are fun, Seahawks too. Give everyone hugs at midnight tomorrow! That's the one thing nobody can get too many of..Happy New Year!

Former Yakimite: Eagles soaring over Rimrock Lake, the salty old s.o.b's at the Old Town Pump Tavern, asparagus, jonagolds, 4th of July pow-wow, chasing cattle on the Satus, little league baseball games on a hot summer afternoon, putting no bait on your hook and being happy just to dangle, the drive to the beach and the glorious smell of ocean when you get there. Take care and pass the midnight hugs around your piece of heaven too! Elle

Ah yes, the water front! The Markert, the aquarium! Love those places! Never been on the underground tour. Sporting events are fun. I've always wanted to see the Sonics! Haven't done that yet, at all!

Former Yakimite, what part of Oregon do you live in? I remember loving the coast! Crator Lake and area around there (which I believe was a desert). I didn't like Portland much though. I'd rather be in Lincon City.

Okay, so I've revealed myself as a techno-idiot. This posting probably won't work either. Anyone for smoke signals????

Hiya,

Love blues (don't think there's a blues song I don't like) Maddy Prior's a big favourite, both with Steeleye & without. So much so that if you're trying to get me to a gig all you have to say is "the band sound like Steeleye" and I'll jump at the chance to go.

The late Barry Finn credited Screamin' Jay Hawkins with recording Who Do You Love? (way up at the top of this thread.) Actually it was written and recorded by Bo Diddly in 1956. There were a number of covers, but not by Screamin' Jay, who was famous for the song I Put a Spell On You, and fathering 55 children.

That's Bo Diddley (not Diddly) if anybody cares, or even if they don't.

Hiya,

Oh, how could I forget Gary Moore ??!! 'Power Of The Blues' is a brilliant album. At least there's Joe Bonamassa (spelling ??), and his playing's so similar I have to remind myself it's not Gary Moore.

If I ever had an iota of doubt as to who I love, I don't have it after these last three weeks!
