After Fairport and Sandy Denny up there I just had to haul out some Steeleye. Did a great job of melding those English/Celtic/Scot tunes with rock. Then for a change of pace there's "Sweetheart of the Rodeo". Love that album since it got me on to the Burritos and then Mr. Hillman's Desert Rose band...tuneful stuff!....

I agree about the burritos, I do enjoy listening to them from time to time, I used to despise all things country but they kinda won me over and opened my mind to such things.
Been painting my living room wall today along to the sounds of peculiar hole in the sky, sent to me by our own kula john...cheers mate, it's a great cd! Would recommend for any DIY'ing activities.

rocker, what a nice journey. I remember taking that trip myself, also led to Poco and Pure Prarie League (Two Lane Highway, is the song I have requested my friends put on the box, when I make my exit.) Gram Parsons fulfilled all of my sorrowful wants when I was in my early 20's. Ha-cha.

to all: my favorite country/honky-tonk cd recently has been " Bakersfield Bound", by Chris Hillman and Herb Pederson( 1996). man, there's, HEAVY pedal steel! upfront and it's the one and only Jay Dee Maness ( " Sweethearts of the Rodeo"), steelin' it!!! this cd is heaven for pedal- steel lovers like me.

nice to know you guys like the stuff too..Mut've been the air out there in California to give us all that fine country rock music besides the Beach Boys/Love/Doors stuff. Sweetheart was done real well. Mr.Manness and Gram were on there doin' their stuff...pros. Kind of thought something funny was going on when Oh Susannah was on one of the early Byrds album....why is that song there? Made sense when I heard SOTR. They were all country boys! Not sure if you tried the Desert Rose Band. Mr. Hillman sure had some hits there. Maness' steel playin' is something...great sound. I think Mr. Hillman is out in Ojai enjoying life...as it should be. Other albums you may or may not know about by Hillman..."Way out West", "Out of the Woodwork", "Like a Hurricane", "Rice Rice Hillman and Pedersen". They're all pretty good. I'd think you would all like them. His early country albums are good too when he went solo for ahwile.

Speaking of Hillman...

I've always really liked Manassas. I believe it to be very under-rated

Wooo doggies! It is indeed nice to reflect on all this good stuff. I've got to dig out some Sneaky Pete, and get with it. The Desert Rose Band was tight! The original Eagles line-up also comes to mind, with Randy Meisner and Bernie Leaden; and when Clarence White teamed up with the Byrds. I saw those Byrds at Bowdoin College in 70something, McGuinn and White were a guitar match from heaven. It hit me hard when Clarence White died.
I used to go down to Ojai, every spring, tucked right below the hills in the Los Padres National Forrest, with hot springs and Krisnamurti, it's a hidden paradise. It is nice to know that Chris Hillman might be putting his boots up there.

I've been watching/listening to the DVD Rory Gallagher Live at Montreux a lot lately. Need something to take my mind off AL a bit just now.
