Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

A review by Canadian folk/roots reviewer Mike Regenstreif of his top nineteen albums for 2019. Leonard Cohen is at the top while Tom Russell is second. I wasn't completely sure where to put this posting!

Re: LaLa Craig

Well, 199Dan. Perhaps you might like to give your own opinion first of all? I am sure it will be worthwhile.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Further to my posting some time ago on a Marty Robbins song mentioning reincarnation here is one on the same subject from Richard Dobson.

Re: Two new albums

This section of the forum is for "Other Music' and it appears that the two albums are "other music.' Perhaps you might wish to clarify your query?

Re: Scott Walker RIP

A lovely song, John.

I was just listening to this one based on Ingmar Bergman''s classic film.

Our Town - Iris Dement

This song has been posted on the forum before but the video gives it added poignancy.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

There is an interesting and informative link on Tom Russell's Facebook site to the folksinger Rosalie Sorrels.

Re: Night Life - BB King & Willie Nelson

Hello Kush,

I really enjoyed watching the clips. I hate to say this but I can remember when ''I Can't Stop Loving You' came out. I didn't buy the 45 but I bought the follow up, 'You Don't Know Me.'

Time flies!

Highway 46.

I know I have posted this song before but there is now a really good video to accompany it.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Hello Kush, The interview is about one hour and twenty minutes into the show if you can eventually get it. It lasts about twenty minutes. He discusses, briefly, his career with its various turns. The only song of his that is played is 'The Joshua Tree' with a discussion about it. It is an interestin...

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Real country music there, Kush. Very enjoyable. There is a programme on BBC Radio 2 this Sunday, 12th May at 15.00 with Tom Russell talking to Johnnie Walker in 'Sounds of the Seventies.' It should be interesting.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

That outdoor concert of Tom Russell must have been a good experience, Joe. After Kush's mention of Merle Haggard I have just been listening to him singing 'Kern River'. It is a sad, haunting song.

Re: Johnny Cash: Forever Words

Marvellous videos, Kush! Both of them remind us of our own mortality. We are here for a brief moment in eternity and then we are gone; millionaires and paupers follow the same road. We play our part on the world's stage and then slip into oblivion. Fame and fortune cannot prevent the inexorable marc...
