    My opinion is worth the same as everyone else's. She was a terrible singer, I mean bad. Other musicians shared my view of her. A pretty face never hurts.

    See your opinions coast you nothing. He advancement cost her everything.

    That others share or do not share your view is an appeal to authority.

    For me it's as if we were watching Micky Mantel at bat. and the commentator kept telling us how shitty he was in Little league. At some point I want to remind him we we all start off shitty. Few of us end as well as Sheryl.

    Timing is everything.

    Sheryl Crow is posted somewhere around here singing Beautiful Dreamer.
    She achieves a wonderful effect by simply slowing the whole song. I posted anther version with just a bit faster tempo and for me it cannot compare.

    Phish: in my view takes this song down a bit, less a trucker driven, more an introspective driver on a journey. Just goes to show you don't have to be Little feet to get a song right!":O}

    This one comes with a bit of a back story.":O}
    The Standells were invited to Boston to give a concert
    At the time Boston was ultra convective and very Catholic.

    Once they had arrived and the advertising got the word of their concert out City father decided to take a look at who was to entertain the city.

    Hours before the show they cancelled the concert and implied it was the Standells fault.

    This song also titled "Dirty water" Was a thank you note for having shown them such a good time!
    P.S I don't believe any of them was from Boston.":O|



    I'm gonna tell you a story
    I'm gonna tell you about my town
    I'm gonna tell you a big fat story, baby
    Aw, it's all about my town
    Yeah, down by the river
    Down by the banks of the river Charles
    (Aw, that's what's happenin' baby)
    That's where you'll find me
    Along with lovers, muggers, and thieves
    (Aw, but they're cool people)
    Well I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home
    (Oh, you're the number one place)
    Frustrated women (I mean they're frustrated)
    Have to be in by twelve o'clock (oh, that's a shame)
    But I'm wishin' and a-hopin', oh
    That just once those doors weren't locked
    (I like to save time for my baby to walk around)
    Well I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, yeah)
    Because I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, yeah)
    Well, I love that dirty water (I love it, baby)
    I love that dirty water (I love Boston)
    I love that dirty water (Have you heard about the strangler?)
    I love that dirty water (I'm the man, I'm the man)
    I love that dirty water (Ow)
    I love that dirty water (Come on, come on)

    Yeah, the Doc could collaborate with just about anyone, and own any song he sang [as could Etta. I mean, she was arguably the mama of R&B].

    Somewhere, if I can ever find it, is a show Dr John did with the Neville Brothers 20 or 30 years ago. I *think* it was the New Orleans Jazz Festival, iirc. It will knock your socks off if you listen to it. I'm sure he worked with them a lot, being from the same place, but this particular performance...is as perfect as it gets.

    Umm... Iron Butterfly plays a nice intro here but the song is from The Crazy World of Arthur Brown:



    This animation of "Fire" is rather nice. Thanks.

    Darn, my HTML5 video won't handle this. I had no idea that "Willin'" had so much history. Thank you TR!
