Not only is this a great song, this is a great performance. I want a local symphony orchestra to do flash-mobs like this... I would chase them all over town to listen.

That was brilliant! I went off on a youtube run off that :p

But I came in here to post this :

Richard Thompson. I love him and now and again I have a flurry of listening. This is his version of a 13 (I think?) century English folk song, from his album "1000 years of popular music"





And now an old American song:

Shenandoah

And this I think one of my favourites, from much earlier in his career:

Mr. Thompson, your dignity left at a dead run when you put on that tie.

There is a god and his name is Richard Thompson. I missed Dana's 'flurry' of songs but for variety I'm posting a couple of RT covers.

Elvis Costello's version of a dirty, nasty..., wonderful song: The End of the Rainbow...





...and Natalie Merchant's decent attempt at, perhaps, my favourite RT (& Swarb) songs - Crazy Man Michael.

I know I've posted this somewhere (more than once, I think), but, speaking of Richard Thompson covers:

This was posted over on Boing Boing. I thought it was pretty cool.

The isolated bass from Won't Get Fooled Again

Glatt, that was awesome!!

Thank you.

I liked, at the end, when he took off the bass, it was like "This guitar has no shit left in it. The shit has been played out of it. It is dead to me."

Thanks again.

Somewhere, in the vastness of da interwebs, there exists an isolated vocal track of David Lee Roth singing, I think, either "Jump!", or "Panama".

It's hilarious. He sounds like every drunk party-dude who thinks he can sing.

Disagree about Mr. Lee Roth. He was a phenom... for the first 10 years.

That's it! That's what I was thinking of. I didn't mean to take anything from Mr. Roth, I dug him, lots. I'm a solid member of the 'Van Halen, not Van Hagar' club. I liked Van Halen, and I've always loved The Red Rocker Sammy Hagar, but, I did not like Sammy singing for Van Halen. Just not my cup o' tea.

While I'm opining...

Van Halen has 'jumped the shark', imho.

And I still think DLR's isolated vocals are just hilarious.
