Now that's inforgiveable. WZ was a bit uneven on record but a great live act. Saw him not long before the cancer took over. One of the best semi acoustic gigs I've ever seen.

Randy Newman and John Cale are another couple whose recorded output tends to be spotty but are mesmerising live. (That could sound as if I saw them as a duet, not so.)

Speaking of which if you get the chance to see Keiren Kane and Kevin Welch doing there duo performance it's worth the price of admission.

Ah yes. Post Beatles my first big musical awakening was through the Blues. First up with the English funnily enough. I was in awe when I first heard John Mayall's Bluesbreakers with some young punk called Clapton on guitar, then Paul Butterfield (oh the players that went through his band, Santana, Mike Bloomfield, Dave Sanborn and lots more) then Robert Johnson and Sonny Boy Williamson.
Do you remember a thing called Super Session ? Al Cooper, Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills with a bit of help from Carlos Santana and Elvin Bishop from memory.
It's an interesting thing that many young kids in the sixties were turned onto the Blues by white Englishmen but there you go. (This is reading a tad strange, sounds like I'm saying all of these people were English. Not so)

Non Blues but I don't believe we've mentioned Neil Young or that icon of icons The Band. For shame.

Gotcha !!

To be honest Gui I'd never heard of her until yesterday when there was a clip of one of her concerts on TV. She is touring Australia this year so I guess I'd better get some tickets. Looks like it should be a great show. She cuts quite a figure on stage and I'm not just talking eye candy.

The clip I saw last night was from the same concert. So much for short fat hairy Portuguese women. I have to say that Fado (using that clip as an example) is a lot easier on the ears than vocal Flamenco. Pretty much a kick arse bunch of players behind her as well.

Which led me on to Amalia. I think I can handle this Fado stuff.

Fado means fate....destiny...and its a very typical type of song that only exists in Portugal where the singers sing in a very sad melancolic type of tone, about love, life, detah and such...

It dates back to middle age and its allways allways played with the Portuguese guitar....in it self a thing I can't describe..they cry..these guitars

Here's some guy playing it.

And here some more...again only in Portugal.

By the way..I grew up with the sons of one of Portugal's most famous "fadista" the singer of fados his name is Rodrigoi

AND HERE THE QUEEN AMALIA

this is my Country....enjoy
