    Now!

    Where do we go from here?

    I know which ones of other people's I am going to vote for in the next round - lots of good stuff - but for now to try to add to the diversity as previously signalled.

    Chuck Berry - Chuck Berry Is On Top (1):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFeZ_x--aRg

    The Abyssinians - Arise (1)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJUzbtblcU4

    De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising (1)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHEvjLJgWM8

    (It looks off puttingly show offy but it isn't that - that isn't where I am at all : I just love my music and I like to spread the message - having started at 6 ish, I have now been at it for half a century. Whoops - gave my age away! - yes that's right, all you arithmeticians, but also around about an enthusiastic 12).

    The arguments. This is a bit of "I don't like this : but I do like that". I never loved Elvis to quote Miles Hunt. Sorry - all I like there hugely are the very early Sun recordings which I like a lot. Traditionally, my favourite rock n roller was Eddie Cochran. I still think he was the boss but there isn't really an album in his lifetime that does him justice. So then it goes to Chuck Berry who may be the oldest "pop" musician I have seen live. I have recently seen several aged 73-74 and 78-79. He was in his eighties at Camp Bestival, Dorset when he rebelliously refused to obey the local council's time curfew and had to be dragged off the stage by his manager son. 65. A questionable past but on the night such wayward fun.

    The reggae thing is tricky. It's so easy to just say "Marley" because he was so great. He was the greatest. No question. But there is so much else. I have a leaning towards the melodic and peace messages, among other things. The track I have linked to is like a reggae "People Get Ready" or "Caravan of Love". I'm very anti rap/hip-hop. I don't like what much of it says and I think extreme versions are contributing to knife crime in London. But it wasn't always quite this way. I saw De La Soul in 1989 and also liked PM Dawn and Dream Warriors. The DLS album was a hippy cartoon rappiness of love and it's a total classic.

    I have to say that I am always a bit ashamed that I am not exclusively classical. But we can only be who we are. I've been to the ROH this year and to the Colisseum twice. I also went to the 100 club for a man I had never heard of until about a week before. Ural Thomas. He was 79 or 80. He will be 80 now. He was so amazing. I've also been to Judy Collins, 79, this year and Colin Blunstone, 74. Mostly I don't step much outside the door. And I just love these people. They give me so much hope. I have bursts of energy to get to music. On the right day, it just draws me towards it. So as a brief break, enjoy and if younger marvel.

    The magical Judy...and I'm not big on musicals, but hell, Sondheim, what a guy:

    A big unforgivable diversion, sorry, but spreading the hope and love!

    BTW, it would be nice to have all The Rolling Stones listed under one name.
