She's on The Tonight Show tonight. Do you consider that "hitting it big"?

I'm sure you can listen to part of it on iTunes or something.

Here is another one from Seed. "Deep Channel" may have been what I first heard from ACSS on XM Chill.

P.S. Every time I read your name I hear David Bowie singing "This is Major Tom to Ground Control....." - oh wait - that's an oldie!

Pure Electronic Groove: Track n Field - just 2 guys in Helsinki. XM Radio played their stuff constantly on XM Chill during 2007 - particularly this one. Track n Field was the reason I originally signed up for iTunes, because you couldn't get their music in the US any other way. Unfortunately - no longer available on iTunes for some reason.

You really need to listen through headphones. Regular computer or car speakers don't handle their dynamic range very well.

Anything by Audioslave, I have all their albums.

In the new age realm, I like Scott Huckabay, saw him twice at Burning Man. His recorded music is good but his live performances are beyond description.

"He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss)" is a little creepy, given Phil Spector's history, though it was written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin. Great band.

Fuego mentioned Fatboy Slim. This is my all time favorite hooping inspiration song and video!



And I also am a huge fan of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. We'll be seeing them next weekend at Floydfest in Virginia. She is incredible--the real deal.

This is for Major Tom (sorry, I couldn't resist)

Wow - 1969!



Well - singing and instrumentals on the later version is much better. (But the video even freakier!)

I didn't see that. I consider that hitting it sorta kinda big. Mostly as long as she is still playing smaller venues (like the Bottle and Cork where I just saw her) and not doing the stadium gigs I still consider her accessible. I don't like the big shows and crowds where the performers are these teeny tiny little figures up on a distant stage. Especially Grace, she's so hot you need to see her up close.

Careful Harley, we're going to have to add you to the restraining orders that our group at Floyd will need to keep them from climbing up on stage with Grace! LOL! Wait til you see Spiral (the hoop and aerial performer). Hot stuff according to the guys.

I agree that I almost hate it when my favorite performers make it big and move out of the smaller venues.

Me--I'm a Chris Knight and William Walter fan-girl! Whew!

I'm happy embarrassed to confess that there is only one artist mentioned here that I have ever even heard of, let alone heard their music...

...now, where's that curmudgeon certificate?...hmmm, gotta be in here somewhere... hey look, an old Guess Who album!... and The Eagles... and Kansas, Steve Miller Band, Boston, and Joe Cocker!.. now, where'd that record player go?

I still spin albums, WS, not to worry. And I have quite a few album covers as art in my living room. I love the sound of my albums and I like that back then, they put some thought into the song order.

This is one of my favorite cover of all time, yowza yowza yowza--I try not to watch the latest concert footage of him with Carole King as I'd rather think of him just as he was here:

That Afro Celt Sound System is great, thanks for the links Audrey! If you haven't heard them, Celtic Cross was awesome (a world-music inspired psy-chill collaboration album between Simon Posford, Martin Glover and Saul Davies):


Simon does great psy-chill as Shpongle, this is one of my favorite tracks from them:


SomaFM has some great chill and downtempo channels.

Aww - thanks Audrey. There is a certain charm to the simplicity of the earlier version, though I like 'em both. You're giving me lots of flashbacks!

What's there to be embarrassed about?

Hey, I have not been turning on my TV in a while. Do you know if the Lawrence Welk show is still on?

I gave myself a few flashbacks too! I ended up downloading Best of Bowie from iTunes this morning. 20 songs for $7.99 and an amazing collection of hits.

Forget this modern stuff. The old stuff still rocks!

Yeah - I would say "Sweet Baby James" describes the photo very well.
