Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. The recording sessions for the album were the last in which all four Beatles participated. Although Let It Be was the final album that the Beatles completed before the band's dissolution in April 1970, most of the album had been recorded before the Abbey Road sessions began.

Not a huge country fan

Did you know that they are now calling it "Americana" and it sounds a lot more like rock now?

@jazz_music going to guess you are old enough to recall Charlie Pride.

Back in the day I used to do my winters (break from the Merchant Seaman gig) in the Florida Panhandle and I vividly recall the comments about what a wonderful Country singer he was - when the same people found he was Black - let's just say the wonderful died quite a bit and they came up with new handle for him that doesn't warrant repeating here....

Anyway I do have a small but decent collection of country - not Americana. The only music genres I never got into was progressive jazz and atonal music. Opera is still my favorite, Callas still reigns supreme but I know there is not much interest in that here so I post things from my other likings.

@BayAreaObserver I too do not enjoy the more dissonant styles of jazz that came out in the 1960's. They were expressing a reaction to a crazy world of imbalance and irony and rebelling against playing minstrel for a bunch of white people oblivious to their privileged status and demanding musicians play pleasantly while the white people enjoyed their more privileged lives in front of them, the less privileged.

Most of that genre was very expressive but hard to enjoy unless you were a fellow jazz musician appreciating the discipline on the instruments.

@BayAreaObserver opera is kind of the ultimate so I understand your appreciation there. Most people find it as hard to relate to as progressive jazz. LOL

There are cultural barriers and stereotypes that divide people for sure. Same thing goes for country music. How about that?

Western Swing
aaaH! HAAaaaaaa

Due to marriage more than location I developed a taste for country music too.

Typically to a musician the roots of the music is an interesting subject. Bob Wills band brought the Hawaiian guitar to country music. They also caused the invention of the "C melody" sax to facilitate playing horns in typical easy-play "guitar keys." Bob Wills And The Texas Playboys were a major draw with national prominence during the depression and recovery years and many musicians wished to tour with his band.

@jazz_music My father used to talk about Bob Wills and many others all of the time. The vast majority of my C&W is from pre 1980. Going to guess you heard this before...

My awareness of country music is sketchy but deep in maybe a few artists. My second wife came from a country music family in Iowa and so I learned more through her. Over 50 years coastal SoCal so this culture was ironically alien to me. --I understand is about as mainstream as it gets.

This actually happened. Doctor Who, the KLF, and Gary Glitter. With Samples from "Blockbuster" by The Sweet.

Gary Glitter at 1:40

25 years on and I still can't decide if genius or gloriously bad.

Nice sounding performance!

I always liked the groove and the chorus of voices to this song. I never knew what they were singing.

Listen, my friends
Listen, my friends
Listen, my friends
Listen, my friends
Listen, my friends
Listen, my friends
Listen, my friends, you thought never but
Listen, my friends, I'm yours forever
Listen, my friends, won't leave you ever
Now my friends
What's gone down behind
No more rain
From where we came
Listen my love, get under the covers, yeah
Squeeze me real tight, all of your lovin'
Into the light, beneath and above ya
So out of sight, bein' in love!

It turns out that it is about what I figured it always was.

Does it get any cooler than this live performance of the Yardbirds?

The introduction features an interlude that Jimmy Page used later in Dazed And Confused"

Jimi Hendrix 24 hours before he died performed on this jam with Eric Burdon and War recorded at a club in England. go right to 59:00 to hear Jimi. The recording gets a lot better there too. Before then it's really rough.
