My "eclectic" tastes don’t seem to go in the same direction as you guys but hey nothing wrong with that [img]images/smiles/converted/newangel.gif[/img]
I just love that jangly rock and roll sound, including Chuck Berry, James Brown, Little Richard scares me but what a voice..very cool. Even go for that rock and roll piano sound of Jerry Lee Lewis…Hellacopters are using a punked up rock and roll piano sound gotta love that. As I mentioned in a different thread I love most Motown sounds, some blues with Etta James but not a lot…just not messy enuf for me…oh well [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Otis Redding is amazing, some friends just had their debut gig awhile ago..3 horn players and all the other basics. They did Security by Otis but covered it like The Saints did…very cool. They also did tunes by Aretha, Rufus Thomas, Richard Berry, Honey and The Bees, Al Green, Spencer Davis, Meters, Rudy and The Soulsetters and Slim Harpo/Charlie Rich. Very cool songs, very nice to see my pals…guitar/drums playing again…looking forward to more shows. Sadly that will be awhile, emailed me last nite that he sacked two of the horn players and the bass player…sad. He has a great site that reviews tons of "eclectic" releases…will repost that link when its back up.
Glad you guys like Jazz, just doesn’t work for my ears…has the same effect as country on these ears…ahhhhh. Have never really been motivated to look further into it, might check out some of the suggestions…if I am brave [img]images/smiles/converted/cwm12.gif[/img]
Wilson Pickett is also pretty cool, have a single with Midnight Hour that got played every New Years Eve…predictable yes but fun.
He is threatening to never return to Canada after getting strip searched by customs…god that sucks [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img] What could a 60 year old guy bring into Canada that is not already here…YIKES.
