Dreamsville is a Henry Mancini composition that got showcased originally as part of the Peter Gunn compilation album. The television show was noted for containing a lot of cool jazz with each episode.

Ana Vidovic plays Asturias by Isaac Albéniz



How young and beautiful she is as well as accomplished on classical guitar.

This is an extraordinary effort on Edgar Winter’s part. To pull this song off on synth, sax, and timbale. You see he enlarged the arrangement to give himself time to slip between instruments.


Extremely hard to duplicate the original synth sounds because that was done on an ARP 2600 before they had program memories that you can save and recall. The synth was tweaked like crazy to get all those interesting sounds in the original hit. I heard this live before, never like the record, but never quite this good either. How can you change synth sounds mid-song without being able to recall saved programs? —tweak and press buttons, wow, never quite the same results. I’m sure he is emulating the old synth with a modern substitute but still, never quite the same on anything.

You know the studio version was really thrilling, but people just don’t understand all that goes into that stuff, it’s like rocket science really.

These horn players are mostly meeting in sections in their apartments where the neighbors are probably complaining about their noise. Hahaha Some of them have home studios. All home recordings mixed together to make a big band.

But

Together, thanks to the internet and their own determination to do something cool, they made a great, great recording that you should listen to all the way through. They have made a lot of recordings, but this one is a big arrangement of When You Wish Upon A Star.

I don't know why, of all the things going on in that song, but I love the sound of that snare drum.

FYI, the thread is what you're listening to this evening, not morning ;)

That's the way "Hurdy Gurdy Man" makes me feel, too. A local audiophile likes to play Donovan records in vinyl as demos. The sound quality is surprisingly good because they were mastered well, but the songs seem stranger to me now than when I first heard them.

Confession: I never knew one thing about Donovan or any 60s stuff except Hendrix when this song came out and thought the Surfers wrote this song totally sloshed and high.

One more Zappa. Apostrophe is probably a top 25 album for me. Top to bottom a fantastic listen. Hence the 2nd post in like 10 minutes.

@ Feux Follets your Korean song made me think of Paul Simon's hit "American Tune" in the way that it builds, except he is using a guitar and playing more full than the piano in the Korean recording, to his concept by comparison, it's dynamics.

Paul Simon's "American Tune" builds up to a dream vision of his own dying and then his soul flying over the Statue Of Liberty as he longs for returning to his home town (evidently New York) which he misses since he is on the road.

So, in other words, the Korean song gives me ideas.

This is a super well done rendition by a complete unknown soloist guitarist using an approach that no other previous musicians ever thought of using WITH a custom guitar that beats the hell out of playing on a Gibson box. --he makes it look easy and, I mean, just listen to that tone!!!

Listen to that cool technique with the harmonics at 0:23.



With rehearsal and a coach, or maybe just mirror, he could lose that suicidal expression he gets on his face. LOL

Anyway he is really something special. I see the movie fails to show his name, but his name is

Mark Kleinhaut,

and there is more of him on YouTube if you are interested.

On vinyl

https://youtu.be/GypYrmsdkW4

Shades of Deep Purple on blistered vinyl (the way I like it). You'll hear shades of Cream, Ten Years After, Savoy Brown, and a splash of Stones in there. "I went to Deep Purple concerts, and they were always REALLY LOUD!"

Politically Incorrect. Grew up in the 1950s ? You may have heard this.

No I don't remember this.

I even listened to Dr Demento's show quite a bit too!!!

"Dark Funeral" Heh, Heh. Such optimism set to thrash metal. I had to listen the the Sound Track of Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music ten times just to keep from offing myself.

It was a Midwest thing.

Of course during the 1950's they would have appeared on the Spike Jones Show.

Man when I was 7 or 8 yrs old that show was the number one thing to watch on TV, (in B&W) Louie Armstrong's variety show ranked very highly too.

Later on in life I learned that Spike Jones is this brilliant percussionist / band leader who employed only the top studio musicians in Hollywood because only they could keep up with his wild and wooly parody arrangements of famous music. Let's not forget to mention his wild parody of the Nutcracker Suite, WOW!

It was amazing how strong this song was in the pop culture of the day, the early 60's?
