Stumbled across these people during one You Tube trip ... a father & daughter plus some friends. I think they have a nice sound. Just regular folk doing what they love ... making music.

This is my favourite Mamas And The Papas song 

Reason is that Mama Cass brings something special from down below the solar plexus when she sings the words of love chorus

Great idea!  Sooo many great groups out there when I was young so gonna post just a lil Motown to get the party started.  When I got my license it was time to hit the Roostertail in Detroit every Sunday evening.  Yup, I disappeared and took friends with me when I went.  People thought I was insane for spending 3 hours driving one-way to hear everyone.  Always home late and had my grin on @ school the next morning.  That's how I started...  

 

This dude right here w/a #1 hit @ 13 years old?  Seriously???  He sooo had it workin!

 

Talk about a killer A game?  More than 40 years together?  Just WOW every time!  

 

Ford opened their assembly line for these girls to shoot a video?  Come on they're ridin in style!  Mar

tha Reeves & The Vandella's?

 

Damn straight it was a HeatWave EVERY Sunday evening!  :)

When i was a young teen, i got to tag along with my brother and his friend to the drive in theatre. On the way, they were playing an 8-Track of Close to the Edge -- i was hooked ever since. Every time i hear that album now i can picture myself in the back seat of that station wagon listening to this musical gem.

Wait, What???  How in the heck could I forget this crew?  Yea, it was up close and personal with so many there.  Black?  White?  Sure it mattered back then to everyone but us!  Always about a love of music IF you were true to yourself and real!

 

OUCH!  Now get that swing on!  Yea, that's it...  ...Just like THAT!    :)

That was spectacular!  My Baby not an easy song to sing with all those vocal attacks and drag triplets.  Well done!

I love this thread and topic.  I'm always looking for new music, even that outside my usual comfort zone.  I can listen to anything once.

I love Youtube music vids.  I'm not ready to jump in just yet but I'll share the vids I use to test speakers.  The ones I have in mind show off male vocal, female vocal, and piano.  If a speaker can pull that off accurately, it's a keeper.

From the LP Time Out in which every tune had a non-standard (for jazz) time signature.  Take Five in 5/4 time was the most enjoyable song of that bunch along with Blue Ronda al a Turk, the first tune if you click on the below YT link.  I used to listen to it with my dad when I was 5.

 

Quote

Time Out is a studio album by the American jazz group the Dave Brubeck Quartet, released in 1959 on Columbia Records. Recorded at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City, it is based upon the use of time signatures that were unusual for jazz such as 9
8
, 6
4
and 5

He was a brilliant entertainer, singer, songwriter, composer and producer. I have experienced 3 live concerts. I will never forget him.

I saw him once, but only briefly.  I happened to be at this show.

 

In the fall of 1981, Prince wasn’t a rock star. This was before 1999 and Purple Rain, “Little Red Corvette” and “Let’s Go Crazy.” He was merely a quirky upstart with one falsetto-sung pop-funk hit (“I Wanna Be Your Lover”) under his thong strap. But Mick Jagger was a fan of Prince’s early stuff and he invited the young performer to open a pair of Rolling Stones concerts in Los Angeles. It didn't go well.

The Stones’ 1981 tour was a massive undertaking that saw the band break attendance records while filling America’s most gargantuan stadiums. The L.A. Coliseum was no exception, loaded with an estimated 94,000 music fans. Make that Stones fans. This crowd wasn’t too thrilled with the music that Prince was playing.

 
 

At the first L.A. concert on Oct. 9, Prince and his band (soon to be called the Revolution) took the stage before fellow openers George Thorogood and the Destroyers and the J. Geils Band. Before he even played a note, it was clear that the androgynous musician might not have been the best fit for this macho, blues-rock audience. Prince came to the microphone in his typical stage attire from that era – see-through jacket, thigh-high boots, black bikini briefs. Perhaps he was trying to bridge a gap with his setlist, playing rock-ier material such as “Bambi” and “When You Were Mine,” singing falsetto parts in his natural voice and turning the guitars way up.

It didn’t matter, the afternoon crowd began hurling racist and homophobic slurs at the band, and when that didn’t work, bottles, cans and anything else they could find.

“Next thing I noticed was food starting to fly through the air like a dark thunder cloud. Imagine 94,000 people throwing food at each other; it was the craziest thing I had ever seen in my life,” remembered bassist Brown Mark, who had just joined Prince’s band. “I got hit in the shoulder with a bag of fried chicken; then my guitar got knocked out of tune by a large grapefruit that hit the tuning keys…”

After Prince played “Jack U Off,” one fan remembers promoter Bill Graham coming on stage in an attempt to calm the field-level hordes, to little avail. Prince and pals stopped the set partway through their fourth song, “Uptown,” amidst a stadium’s worth of boos. Stones fans had successfully turned Prince away.

A frustrated and upset Prince was reportedly crying backstage, vowing to skip the second show two days later. He flew home to Minnesota without the band. A round of calls from his manager, his guitarist Dez Dickerson and Jagger encouraged Prince to try again on Oct. 11.

“I talked to Prince on the phone once after he got two cans thrown at him in L.A. He said he didn’t want to do any more shows,” Mick recalled in 1983. “God, I got thousands of bottles and cans thrown at me! Every kind of debris. I told him, if you get to be a really big headliner, you have to be prepared for people to throw bottles at you in the night. [Laughs] Prepared to Die!”
