Bearcarver said:. That's itI couldn't think of his name. Thanks Keith!! Group Lead. Jim Nabors Gomer Pyle fell into that bucket too. My parents took me to see him live when I was a kid back around '70 or ' Hell of a voice, and he stuttered quite a bit. MJB Smoking Fanatic. Jackie Gleason Show. I like it all. I listen to everything.
Been listening to a lot of Southern Rock Lately. Just way to many to list. One thing I've been seeing a lot of lately is all these channels on youtube where the younger folks are recording themselves reacting to listening to "our" music for the first time.
It's kind of fun to see the faces as the songs that we loved are reaching these younger people. Brings me back to when I first heard them -- the excitement of peeling the wrapper off a new LP and putting it on the turntable and hearing gems like Boston's first album or Pink Floyd's the Wall for the first time.
Thanks Bear, I remember Crazy too. Oh the memories A lot of great mentions in here! Growing up in east TN southern rock is a staple so those bands are always some of my favorite. Location: Peekskill, N. I looove Billy Eckstine What a voice he had in the 40's and 50's. Grampire , Philip Davis , rogertheshrubber and 3 others like this. Location: Southeastern US.
I just discovered Leo Gooden via the Jazz Wax blog. Seriously good singing with arrangements from Oliver Nelson, and some very interesting history. Bobby Buckshot , Dec 14, Location: Montreal. Fantastic thread My mother had a number of these guys among her favourites. Love this place forum and Spotify for allowing me to queue many of the artists recommended here. I'm listening to many of them right now.
I like the time in which I live!!!! Thanks guys. SMcFarlane , Dec 14, Mylene and Nathan Aaron like this. Location: USA. Billy Eckstine was a legend here of course but was always considered a jazz singer. A little different than a crooner per se in my mind at least.
Matt Monro was a big deal in our market at least and I would think he would be a name that ma and pa kettle would be looking for in a record store back in the day.Frank Fontaine / More Songs I Sing On The Jackie Gleason Show - Vinyl LP Record. $ Free shipping.
