    OT: Any other 50+ love Shawn Colvin?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOeeRt6owN0

    I saw Shawn Colvin and John Hiatt a few months back. What a concert. I work with 30 to early 40-somethings, and none of them ever heard of John Hiatt.

    Who are your favorite singers/songwriters?

    Joni Mitchell . . . no one else even comes close. Have loved Joan since about '67. Still do! Had 2nd row seats for one of her concerts (back in the Court and Spark days); will never forget that evening/night! She's 62 now and still at it.

    Herbie Hancock's interpretation of her songs just got the Grammy for Album of the Year. Hard to beat that.

    Colvin and Hiatt would be an excellent show. I've liked both for years. Joni Mitchell is great too.

    Hit em with this guy Jorma Kaukonen. Remember a little group named Jefferson Airplane. How about Hot Tuna? On his later stuff he has gone back to mostly country blues and old timey style finger picking stuff. Catch his Blue Country Heart album if you like that kind os stuff. Killer guitar player

    +1 for Jorma. Good stuff.

    I'll add Lucinda Williams to the list.

    +1 on Joni and Jorma (esp. Blue Country Heart)

    I'll add John Prine -- but there are so many other great ones out there...

    Kind of surprised that nobody has mentioned that Dylan guy.

    "Who are your favorite singers/songwriters?"

    Jim Gill is just bursting with talent. But more importantly he is my good friend and a nice guy.

    Not to put too fine a point on it but that would be Steve Earle
    I only point that out because he's pretty much automatic for me: I see a new Steve Earle CD, I buy it. Simple... no thought involved.

    Bruce has just hasn't done it for me beyond his Born to Run... The River... Born in the USA" period. Still a wonderful song writer but he's lost his edge, I DO really like his Seeger Sessions CD though.

    I put Blue Country Heart in my CD player when it came out and it stayed there for the nest 4 months.
    To be fair, Jorma didn't write any of the songs.

    Beyond that, I like an awful lot of people but the ones I really favor are the ones with the courage and cojones to follow their muse, popularity be damned. Neil Young, Joni (Court and Spark through Don Juan's Reckless Daughter. I still -this many years on- have a tough time with her Mingus LP... and I *LOVE* Mingus), Dylan at various times throughout his career but particular over the past 4 or 5 years.

    I too know there are more but that's a start...

    I like a lot of singers & groups, but if I had to name a favorite, it would still have to be Bob Dylan. I have 30-something Dylan CDs and they always remain in my playlist, whilst others come and go. I particularly love listening to Dylan when I'm driving. I've been known to drive for 6-8 hours listening to only Dylan. I've been listening to Bob for over 40 years now and I'm not about to stop anytime soon ... unless I kick the bucket.

    Yep. I know that. Whoops. Can I redeem myself by mentioning some of the early Stacy Earle? I like her a lot but wish she's stop performing with her husband, whose music does nothing for me.

    I've been listening to a lot of Tim Hardin lately...and Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen.

    The music of the sixties will never be surpassed, in my opinion...not that I wouldn't LOVE to see a better musical decade come along.

    Three songs fo Colvin I could listen to over and over :
    Steady on.
    Diamond in the rough.
    Shot-*** down an avalanche.

    Not a big fan of her otherwise.

    One person I wish were still alive: Michael Hedges.

    I am not a fan of "Modern" music- and back in the 60's when my music interests' started- The American Blues was just coming to the UK (Put that as early 60's) Chuck Berry was the first commercial "Rhythm and Blues" singer to make it here- But I got onto a lot of early stuff from Leadbelly and John Lee Hooker. I know there were a lot of others that interested me but J L H has still got me. So much so that half of my I-Pod is filled with his music. Intersperse that with Status Quo- and you basically have my Music Interests. Except for Classical- and Big Band- and a lot of the Mersey Sound and then there was the Military music ( Only Played by the band of the Royal Marines though) and Then there might be a bit of Kate Moss and a lot of Country music.

    But who is Shawn Colvin?
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
