Jack,
This is driving me crazy. It's like playing Name That Tune but I'm trying to name the artist without googling. Who did you say performed Sky Pilot? For some unknown reason I love that song.

Sky Pilot - the Animals.

My fave Animals song is probably See See Rider.

Actually, I think it was Eric Burden, after the Animals broke up.

EDIT: Nope. Just checked Google. It WAS the Animals.

(I have so much 1965-1975 rock trivia in my head, there is no room for anything else.)

Favorite Animals Song: We Gotta Get Out Of This Place.

Oh, yes, those are good, too. Possibly even better than Sky Pilot but I still have to go with Sky Pilot for some unknown reason. see edited post above.

I also like the Zombies and the Kinks but I'm still having trouble with my memory. Any suggestions?

well, i beg to differ, but i think on that particular album, the best song is "Attics of my Life", with "Ripple" a close second...

Ed, have you ever tried to play any Steve Winwood music on the piano? Good stuff. A nice break from classical IMHO.

Peggy,

I hadn't thought about that. Any particular sheet music that you recommend?


(BTW, you forgot me... frown )

I've been playing Can't Find My Way Home (1969). A friend gave me the sheet music and now I'm looking for more. I was hoping you would have some suggestions. I love it.

How did I forget you? Do you mean the question? Best PM me. I've been so tired and overwhelmed the past couple of days. The Coffee Room is nice and lighthearted. (I don't really need to think too much). Plus I'm bummed I'm going to miss the party. I missed the last one remember?

What a great song! Certainly on my all time favorite list along with another I neglected to mention: Little Wing.

Someone, I think Allison Kraus, has a great cover of Can't Find My Way Home.

Off topic: Going to see the Thunderbirds at MacDill this weekend. Will think of you. Do you ever fly down here? We're not far (about 10 minutes) from Punta Gorda. You can come over and try out the Sohmer. It's no match for your BB though.

edit: just found out there will be no Tomcats. frown bummer

very controversial album cover in its time, and when i think of it, im not sure if it would pass censorship in today's child abuse awareness mood.

nice thing about this forum, is that many of us think alike in some things and not in others.

Once during a bluegrass jam our crazy banjo player suddenly starting ripping into that tune. A full blown jam circle developed around it. I later tabbed it out for Dobro and sometimes use it as a medley filler on open stages.
