Post subject: Nick Lowe (with Annie Whitehead on Trombone) Reply with quote

Annie Whitehead is a really respected musician
http://www.earthmusic.com/anniebiog.htm
Back in the 80s she played on both "Well Fancy That" by Terry and the "Starvation" single produced by Jerry.

Nick Lowe recently recorded a song called You Don't Know Me At All.
The original is by a band called Big Sandy & His Fly Rite Boys.
When I first heard Nick's version (which features Annie Whitehead) I thought it was ok but it's a real grower and now I think it's fantastic...

Nick Lowe is the man. Here is my favourite from his songbook -

Dont mind Daryl Hall murdering the first verse.

Let me know when you're next in London. Smile
Often you hear people say things like, "I hate all country music but Hurt by Johnny Cash is my favourite record" Or, "I hate all opera but whenever I hear Madam Butterfly it makes me cry" Or, "I hate heavy metal but whenever I hear Lemmy singing Ace of Spades I realise I know all the words and I can't sit still". Or, "I hate Jazz but I love Take 5" etc
I think Louis Armstrong was right when he said there's only two types of music: good and bad.
British people sometimes say American's don't understand our sense of irony but there are lots of country songs with lyrics that prove otherwise.
And it's interesting also how you get Country songs like Love of The Common People which sound good when performed in a ska syle.

"I think Louis Armstrong was right when he said there's only two types of music: good and bad" I totally agree with this Smile

Louis Armstrong came out with a lot of other nice quotes...

“All music is folk music. I ain't never heard a horse sing a song.”

“If you have to ask what jazz is, you'll never know.”

"I never tried to prove nothing, just wanted to give a good show. My life has always been my music, it's always come first, but the music ain't worth nothing if you can't lay it on the public. The main thing is to live for that audience, 'cause what you're there for is to please the people."

"What we play is life."
