Despite "Reputation" not being as good as Taylor's previous albums, I do enjoy this song.  I had it stuck in my head all yesterday.

Live Long Rock & Roll by Henry McCullough's Fusiliers

About a dozen listens so far (it only came out today) of Henry McCullough's last composition, performed by a superstar group which includes Paul on bass.

More here.

I discovered this one a couple days ago and have been coming back to it since:

I've more generally been on a Robert Plant/Led Zeppelin kick anyway.

For some reason I can't stop listening to this song. It's a bit like Waterfalls in the sense that you're not that impressed by it when you first hear it, but then it slowly sucks you in (in the best possible way). I recently read that George Martin once called this Paul's greatest vocal of all time, which is rather surprising considering that includes all Beatles recordings. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now and just tell you that you must go listen to this immediately...

Yeah, I agree. It is a nice song, but best Paul vocal? Over I’ve Got A Feeling? Fixing A Hole ?

This is close to, if not is my favorite Paul song.

continuing from the wanderlust thing: not 100% sure if it is true, but i read somewhere that they had to lower his voice a few steps in the recording to get it right because it was slightly out of his range.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Ha, nice, I just learnt it myself.

I don't think the fellow above plays it quite right, though, bless his heart. I listened to the track slowed down and I think I have it... I can clarify if you like @Wigwam

Thanks but I hardly play anymore........I always used open tunings for bottleneck and for working out original tunes.......this was in the days when I still had aspirations......

My son, thanks partially to youtube overtook me by the time he was 12. I've given him my Martin 0018 and my lovely bespoke acoustic I had made nearly 40 years ago. He keeps one in the UK and the other with him at Uni' in Australia. I still have my mum's old nylon strung classical guitar and a really nice Les Paul that hangs on a wall......I haven't touched either for years....I keep promising myself I will....... tomorrow........But tomorrow never comes.

 

I was thinking the other day how helpful You Tube is in accelerating guitar skills.......I did have some finger picking lessons at Cecil Sharp House in Camden when I was young but everything else was trial and error.......I'm not a natural and everything took forever........

I recall I sometimes used to tune my guitar to concert pitch  by waiting for the end of TV transmission at night....That was when the 'Test Card' popped up on the telly accompanied by a continuous perfect 'G' .......Nowadays every smart phone has a tuner app. 

It sounds like you must be really good BB....Keep it up

Cheers
