It appears that the Byrds covered a song called 'Goin' Back'

That's a much-covered number from the Goffin/King songwriting partnership.

 

Here's a cover of a number by another songwriting partnership...

Stone the Crows sounded like a name I might have heard of, so I go on Wiki and see that the guitarist was called Les Harvey and he died from being electrocuted on stage. This sounds like a story Tommy Vance mentioned on the Friday Rock Show one time. Turns out that Les was the brother of Alex Harvey who I know of from having a couple of his songs on tape.

Saw a video the other day where a producer was talking about the innovative techniques used in the production of this song. It reminded me that I used to like hearing this on the radio.

Randy Rhoads was a great guitar player who also died in tragic circumstances...

Released fifty years ago today, Blue is a truly great album. Here's the title track...

In 2020, Blue was rated the third greatest album of all time in Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time"

I remember Joni Mitchell having a single in the charts (Big Yellow Taxi) - would have been one of the oldest songs that I can remember.

A song from an album called 'Green'

Ambient? Yeah, we can do that - but only selectively!

 

This was probably inspired by Carlos Castaneda's eponymous novel. His Don Juan novels are... interesting!

 

Then there's this much more recent track, from a rather good album...

I don't listen to much recent music, because most of it is rubbish! However, occasionally a band catch my ear.

The Pretty Reckless is one such band, and here are a couple of tracks from their third album...

Never heard of them ! - but  really good those tracks.

The 'newest' band that I can think of that I liked a lot would be the Black Keys

There are plenty of alt-rock bands out there, most of them fronted by a sexy woman vamping it up, but none of them catch my ear. However, I think The Pretty Reckless have something special. Another track from their third album, which is getting a lot of play time here...

This bit made me think of Doro Pesch - I have seen her (and Warlock) live but it was at Donnington so I was probably 300 yards from the stage!
