Some nepalese buddhist music w/ a modern twist by buddhist nun Choying Drohma



Some east indian / ozarkian music featuring shawn lane who played guitar with black oak arkansas for a long spell (though you'd hardly tell that from this video). Interesting mix of blues , bluegrass and east indian styles



Cape verde / portuguese singer / guitarist sara tavares



Israeli Blues / funk guitarist Oz Noy -- he goes a bit outside here
but you blues / strat fans commenting in this thread will still like it i think..



Chapman stick player greg howard doing the charles mingus tune "goodbye porkpie hat"



Classical guitarist ralph towner

60s music was really extraordinary, in my not-so-humble opinion. I know a lot of blues musicians in their 40s who wish they'd been around to see these acts and even the earlier ones. For some reason no one cares to have missed Doris Day or Pat Boone - imagine my shock!

And please don't forget Janis Joplin in this tribute fest!

Thanks for posting all the clips.

I saw, back in the early '70s, a triple play concert of Blue Oyster Cult/Black Oak Arkansas/Black Sabbath. Literally, my ears have never been the same. We were in the center of the front row. The only thing louder that I've heard was the Grateful Dead (or the Grateful Deads, as my mother called them) in the Felt Forum in NYC. I did not take drugs at either concert but the air was thick with MJ smoke. They were both interesting experiences.

At that time, this was one of my favorites:



Nobody could write a song like Carole King.

Taj Mahal was a favorite of mine also. I was lucky enough to see him in concert at the Guthrie theater in Minneapolis.

Taj is still around - I saw him on the blues cruise (www.bluescruise.com) this past January. And still really great!

Here he is performing a year ago:



Like, Bob Dylan, he's gonna go on forever.

I saw her three times in person - it was always unbelievable. The albums never captured her stage presence or range. So it's fabulous to see that some of the performances are out there on the net... So sad, such a short career. So many people died young.

Without a doubt, no one has ever put more of themselves into a song than her... and it was every song. Forty years later and she still moves me.
