Friday Night Music Night

What a great way to kick off the weekend then to crank out the tunes. This week's repertoire inspired by Angie's guitar lessons, was a look back at some of the greatest songs written and performed from the 1950's and 1960's with a pinch of a modern day band.
Here's the list: Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young-Name of Love(This is what inspired us to take a look back at the early stuff. This album (American Dream) came out in 1988.
The Association-"Requiem for the Masses" & "Enter the Young" (These came off the album Greatest Hits which both Tim and Angie had the LP when they were kids.
Simon & Garfunkel-"Cecilia" & "The Boxer" again, both off the Greatest Hits LP.
The Beach Boys-"Darlin'" & "Don't Worry, Baby" again, off Greatest Hits, Vol. 2
The Hollies-"King Midas in Reverse" & "Bus Stop" again, off a Greatest Hits CD.
Buddy Holly-"Rave On" off The Original Master Tapes. (Talented & gifted musician, tragic loss)
The Monkees-"Love is ONly Sleeping" 1967 off the Looney Tunz The Monkee Collection CD. (Mike Nesmith sings, awesome.) & "Your Auntie Grizelda" 1967-Weirdly wild.
The Byrds-"From a Distance" & "Eight Miles High" -again off the 20 essential tracks From the Boxed Set 1965-1990.
The Mamas & the Papas-"California Dreamin'" from the Forrest Gump Soundtrack. (Reminds Angie of the Variety Show in high school when Becky Griffin and her performed this song dressed in "hippie garb" and nailed it.
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band-"Will the Circle Be Unbroken" & "House of Pooh" again off Greatest Hits CD.
Hank Williams-"Jambalya (On the Banyou) again 20 of Hank's Greatest Hits CD.
The Derailers-"Then She Kissed Me" Produced in 1999, it's the most modern produced CD of the night, but you would think you were back in time. Excellent band, fun and great to dance in your basement.
Lefty Fritzell-"If You got the Money I've Got the Time" 1950. The Legends Of Country Vol. 1 Looney Tunz.
Carl Perkins-"Honey Don't" 1954. The Legends of Country Vol. 1 Looney Tunz.
