Do You Remember?

The title may be a little misleading because I’m sure you remember all of these songs, BUT virtually every single one of them have probably slipped way, way back in your memory vault.

It’s time to drag them out of storage!

    Good morning, Ray. Today is a mixed bag for me. Some of today’s tunes I can never forget, some I am happy to forget and some I can’t be accused of forgetting because I never remember hearing them! Eric Burdon , I like just about all his work and this one is especially memorable. The Beach Boys number is possibly my least favorite of all their songs. Happy to forget that one. Something about the Elvin Bishop tune that makes it stick in my mind. Is it the relaxed delivery? I don’t know but it is an ear worm in a good way. I feel sure I never heard the Tommy Roe song but that’s OK because it is eminently forgettable. Joe Cocker singing a Leon Russell composition, you can play that all day for me. I love it. Big surprise that the Yardbird song has a sitar as a main element of its sound, it makes the song for me.
    Thanks for shaking the cobwebs out of my brain on a rainy Monday morning. I found your selections refreshing this morning. As usual a lot of fun to listen to. Thanks.
    I hope today is a better day for you. Sending positive vibes your way.

      Thanks, Don … for the comments and the positive vibes.
      We finally found a song we disagree on! Sail On Sailor is one of my favorites Beach Boys songs. 🙂
      The Elvin Bishop song is another favorite, and for people who don’t know it, Mickey Thomas, the lead singer, was later the lead singer with Starship and therefore takes the blame for the absolutely dreadful We Built This City!
      Joe Cocker is always welcome in my head. 🙂

      Thanks, Penny. Always tough to get motivated after a 4-day weekend but I hope this helped, at least a little 🙂

    I was aware Leon Russell wrote and later performed Delta Lady himself. I was not aware he was working with Joe Cocker on arrangements and playing keyboards on Joe’s second album when Joe recorded.
    Rita Coolidge was Leon’s girlfriend at the time and he wrote the song about her. She actually sang backup vocals on Joe’s recording of the song. Delta a Lady became Rita calling card.
    Leon Russell has always been one of my favorite artists and I was very fortunate to see him perform as part of the Bluesmaster Concert in Lincoln 2012. The Alllman Brothers Band headlined the show. Truly a memorable experience to see both, for my last time, in one show!

      Thank you, Marty.
      Leon Russell was an extraordinary musician and producer. Karen and you have seen some very memorable people in concert!

      I am not at all surprised that you would remember them.
