    So youtube somehow knew that I read, years ago, "Young Men with Unlimited Capital" and served up this video of Woodstock. It's crazy to me to think that every person in this video is either dead or 75+ years old. But ya gotta love the vocals by Kermit the Frog!

    Those were definitely interesting times. I was 17 during "The Summer of Love." Thanks for sharing this!

    probably a generational thing, but the Woodstock generation was pretty much the apogee of contemporary music in my book. Not that there havenít been greats since.

    I couldnt disagree with that. But then I think I’m pretty close to your age. All that schlock from the 80’s/early 90’s when I was a teenager/young adult is dreadful. Some more current stuff is good but not as much as the music from back then.

    Though I agree that musical tastes tend to lean heavily towards the generational, I have to say I've always liked the music of the 60s far more than music of the 70s, 80s and 90s. I was not even around for the 1960s. I was one of those who, sometime in the late 1980s when I first bought Beatles' albums, sat in amazement and said continually "I didn't know that was them" for hours. Pop music seemed much more experimental, daring and innovative then. Even a lot of the innovative, strange stuff seemed to make it on the airwaves. Most of the music of the late 1970s and 1980s sounded very much the same to me (though it did produce some good music). It lost its experimentation, daring and creativity and focused more on working within a more rigid form (i.e., looking for the safe "money making" format). I think that trend has continued inexorably to the present day, at least in mainstream music. YouTube and other websites probably hold numerous musical treasures from bands who would never get signed, but who has the time to find them? I don't.

    PBS has been featuring Carole King live in Central Park, 1973. She had or has a powerful voice aside from being a great song writer and performer. One of those generational, they don't make them like that any more, uniqueness.

    Okay----I am one a the Carol-King-for hall-o' Fame advocates. Did they let her in, finally? I just had previously assumed she was a charter member, as many records as she's sold plus other people who also recorded her music. But anyway--lately, I been reviewing summa the best-known songs o' the late-sixties "Sunshine Pop" group, The Association. But yeah--though the group had it's recording heydey in the late-1960's, and sort of disbanded, they reformed off and on, with personnel changes, so they could tour and perform at smaller venues for the sake of nostalgia. Because yeah---their live performances don't even measure up to the sound of their records on a good stereo. See? They were at their very best on a record. Yup. One of my case studies(who is a car jock/drive-n-eat type, took his wife to see them, at a live concert several years ago. But yeah---he claimed they sounded just great. By the way, one o' the songs was a one-hit-wonder for their composer. One song(Windy), they sung it, and it was all over the radio. After that, no more fame, no more hits. Actually, I kind of tend to like one-hit songs. Not all this stuff from people that gets really bad after awhile, like the Beatpools, for example. Hope that helps you some. Thankk mee.

    Today's stroll down memory lane involved Guns' N Roses and Jon Bon Jovi. The former was a bit more hard edged. The later a bit more to my liking. In college my first two years were in a dorm with the two rooms with a bathroom in-between thing going on and our suitemate used to sing (loudly) in the shower. He didn't have talent (Dirk was a business major) but he had heart. My roommate was a voice music education major and one day, towards the end of our sophomore year he had to go to one of the schools near campus to help the choir director with a sectional (a rehearsal of a subset of the whole choir). Before he started that he asked them who their favorite musicians were, favorite songs, etc, to break the ice. Living on a prayer was the unanimous winner of the favorite song of the moment so my roommate apparently gave them his best singing in the shower Bon Jovi impression "WHOAH UH LIVING ON A PRAYER! TAKE MY HAND, WE'LL MAKE IT I SWARE-UH" Apparently it worked because he was able to get them to focus on the actual lesson after that. Thank god neither of us had Bon Jovi's hair... Mine was kind of close and maybe I'll share that one day but not today.

    JBJ was never really my jam, but I really love G&R!
