American Beauty was one of the Dead's finest albums. Nice to see Jerry Garcia's daughter singing on that.

On the album, Ripple was followed by Brokedown Palace...

A harmonica player who jammed with us for years is no longer with us. This is the song that I remember him performing most weeks.

Harmonica? I reckon you'll know this one...

Theme tune for The Old Grey Whistle Test! Someone was explaining the origin of 'the old grey whistle test' just the other week. Had no idea who created the music for the theme.

Harmonica? Fox chase?

The singer on the Family song reminded me of Fish from Marillion - I remember some lads at school disliked Marillion saying they were unoriginal.

 

Bit of Prog Metal from Scottish band Chasar who did a session for the Friday Rock Show back in the 80's - great drumming in this

Heard this earlier today. When it came out in 1981 I'm sure I dismissed Depeche Mode as being a lightwieight pop band. Over the years though they have made quite a few songs that I like. Saw them live about 9 years ago.

Theme tune for The Old Grey Whistle Test!

The opening riff of this was used as the theme tune for Disco 2, the precursor to OGWT...

It's come to my attention that The Pretty Reckless are touring the UK this autumn (the Death by Rock and Roll tour). The usual list of venues, from the Brixton Academy in London to the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow. I may well be buying a ticket.

Someone told me about a tune called Shady Grove the other day, said it's a Bluegrass tune that has a strong hint of Irish to it. Listened to a version by Doc Watson which is good, but this was also in the list

Not a theme tune but a jingle

Shady Grove is an old folk song, and there are many versions/variants. This is the rock version...

Another early hit from Depeche Mode which I probably didn't rate at the time it was released / in the charts, but sounds perfectly OK these days.

Spring? Just a Season from Untitled, which is probably The Byrds' best album!

Followed by Eight Miles High from the same album.

There's some fine guitar work (and a great bass solo) in that track!

I used to think Eight Miles High was by The Who, probably got it confused with this

A country version of a punk classic? How about a punk version of a country classic?

 

Interesting sound, Gary Holton & Casino Steel - Norwegian prog, with a Cockney twist.
