I had not heard of him, but I do like the album. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Dion, - Girl Friends
Legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dion delivers a new album that transcends generations: Girl Friends. His latest from KTBA Records sees him collaborating with a stellar lineup of female artists including the soulful Susan Tedeschi, powerhouse Shemekia Copeland, icon Carlene Carter, virtuoso Joanne Shaw Taylor, and the versatile Maggie Rose, among others. Dion’s timeless voice, and the distinct styles of these acclaimed artists, create a fusion celebrating the rich tapestry of American music.

Great stuff from the Velvet Bulldozer.

The chatting between the tracks is a lot of fun, too. “The better you get, the harder you work… I’m gonna be watching you.”

Really nice recommendation, Lou. I don’t think I’ve heard it before. Apple Music says 1999, but that’s obviously impossible as a recording date.

Yeah – SRV gone in 1990, Albert King a couple years later.
The recording date was late 1983, I think in preparation for some sort of special on Canadian TV though I’ve never seen any video of that. Why it took 16 years to get released, I have no idea.

Looking for suggestions for guitar music with no vocals. Looking for songs similar to the two below.

Johnny Guitar - Eric Clapton
Chtlin con Carne - Stevie Ray Vaughan

Thanks in advance.

I don’t know those tracks, but for non-vocal guitar music try these:

Grant Green
Kenny Burrell
Bill Frissell
Pat Metheny
Rodrigo y Gabriela

Second vote for the last two. Not like the tracks you mention. For that you might look into Robin Trower.

Or jazz fusion like Larry Coryell and Return to Forever.

It’s a bit of a rough ask, because the first is a blues-influenced instrumental version of a song that has lyrics (written by Peggy Lee) from 1954, and the second is a jazz/blues standard from 1963. Point being: the blues. :blue_heart:

There’s not a ton of instrumental blues, because the artists have to tell you why (and how bad) they got the blues, man. BB King’s “Easy Listening Blues” is instrumental (and not “easy listening” genre). I can’t think of others off the top of my head, though there are probably a few.

Since you like SRV’s “Chitlins Con Carne” you might check out the original release by Kenny Burrell, an album called “Midnight Blue”.

Very interesting Lothar.

I was scared to hit play, as she looked a bit like an evil elf!

Getting back to our Viking roots here, perfect theme music for the show “Vikings” (which is back on Netflix, a great show if anyone missed it). :+1:

She’s great! :+1: :+1:

Just happened to have the OTL amp on and my Sennheiser 6xx handy.
As @robson says, very interesting.
As @chrisnyc75 says, but we have Beyoncé singing C&W

I’m not sure which would be scarier as a prospective spouse. This is the sort of comment that I recall typically being made by lads of 15 or so. Ones that look like neither Odin nor John Wayne.

Eivør Pálsdóttir is indeed very versatile, and a fantastic singer with a basic classical education.

@Lothar_Wolf, you sent me down a rabbit hole I hadn’t known before, thank you!

Same. Since getting into this head-fi thing I’ve found I really like a surprising amount of Danish & Finnish music, though I didn’t know this artist. Good suggestion @Lothar_Wolf!

@Lothar_Wolf got me on a nordic music kick now. This is some serious “audiophile bull****” right here, but I LOVE IT. :wink: :smiley:
