Great music: bands and musicians from the old 60's and 70's

Please be kind to others. Personal preference just is. There is no right or wrong.

@Zedzedtop: OK, I did not know you liked Pinetop (WHO does not like !?) - I fix the "error".
I have a favorite Pinetop CD, "Born in the Delta" (I am a fan of sharp electric blues), and from there favorite songs:
"Look on Yonder Wall" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73PlcXXy2fo
"Baby, What You Want Me to Do" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Kb3s5QvKqI
Music below, it is also great:
Full scene blues stars and "Sweet Home Chicago" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBG5PQuW6oo very sorrow, SRV so long is not with us
And yet "Rock Me Baby" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4OXrmxDp44
And, of course Buddy Guy:
"Someone Else Steppin 'In" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMVvKS3dHA0 super version!
"Long Way From Home" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDSL2BTQclY this guitar...

In addition, the perfect (in my opinion) cover of Wishbone Ash, "Where Were Tou Tomorrow" - a girl on bass :D !
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYfyhC_qzEI
And Polish accent, Breakout bluesband and the instrumental track "Karate":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDoz7OLqtaI

I listen to it all and more, when the alcohol drips from the column :D

Wasn't sure EXACTLY where to put this.
But since Willie has been around since the 60's and is still "hittin' it" here you go:

I know this is an old post, and I wanted to give the thread another bump.


JMO, I prefer the studio version of Oh Well to the live so I can play Part 1 AND 2.

The difference in the two "parts" makes all the difference.
But GREAT CHOICE!

No takers on Brubeck, MJQ, or Jacques Loussier?

MJQ=Modern Jazz Quartet. Jacques Loussier is a Bach keyboard scholar who got turned on to jazz in the '60s by George Shearing. Incredible piano, incredible jazz (and Bach would have been OK with it).

Oh hell yes!
Not well versed on MJQ or Loussier but how do you, at some point in your life, listen to this and think, "Damn that is COOL!"

I'm not a drummer and can't handle a lot of obligatory solos. But listening to Joe Morello is something else!
I occasionally listen with the lights down and headphones on. Concentrating on how he drove such a difficult rhythm.
Then the solo. Not too shabby for a blind man! :rkn:
I have heard how Morello and Paul Desmond did not get along at ALL!
I think it had to do with Desmond being an asshole Prima Donna and Morello doing his best to keep him reigned in.

Ah Tdick,

A man after my heart. Also, from what Brubeck himself cheerfully admitted, Desmond was kind of an asshole with him, sniping at his being farm-raised with the occasional "I'm an old cowhand" riff.

I'm not a real drum solo guy either, but Morello was, well, Morello.

Brubeck and these guys pretty much defined both "cool" and "swing" in the '60s..

Not sure if this was 60's or earlier. May have to do a separate thread for the "well aged" stuff.
Probably 35-40 years ago :shock: I bought an album that had this on it.
Have to say it is my favorite Ray Charles song, except it's too short.
I still smoked cigarettes back then (idiot) and it went well on a turntable with good speakers,low lighting, a smoke and a glass of whiskey.

I've never heard that before, and yes, I think that's the best Ray Charles I've heard. A little deeper into jazz than some of his music, and that'll always ring my bell.

I just saw these guys a few weeks ago on a TV network morning talk show. Just like a good UJ, they have aged well. It was a phenomenal performance.

"Rave Up" was one of my favorite albums of the sixties. These guys introduced 3 of the most iconic guitarists of the era - Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page.

John Mayall didn't achieve any great fame, but is probably one of the biggest influences on what we now call "blues rock". He was an Englishman, a Korean War veteran, and an eccentric who lived in a tree house. He nurtured such greats as Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, and Peter Green during their formative years as musicians.
