    Two right catchy tunes from one of their best albums - "Speak" - 1989 - The Roches were an undeservedly obscure group that deserved wider acclaim....

    "Everyone is Good" -

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tDbPF07akE

    And extra bonus points for mentioning one of Robbie Robertson's best tunes!

    Excellent clips MJ which show the quality of the group. While the roots aspects of the music are undeniable, they were along with the cover versions lyrically ahead of their time. Acute observations on egotism, showbusiness etc. As for The Band, they speak for themselves. But RR was one of Canada's many golden musicians and Acadian Driftwood in all of its renditions is a song I could never tire of. Oddly, given the sadness of the words, I always find it uplifting. But I think Robbie meant it that way. He knew exactly what he was doing. Thanks for the kind comments btw and best wishes to you from the outer reaches of Greater London (one quarter of a mile from the Surrey border) where it is still mainly green.

    From the deepest recesses of (what was then) my 9 year old head:

    Fanny:

    Ain't That Peculiar:

    (decent enough clip but ends a bit abruptly)

    (Apologies if they have already been mentioned)
