Another Blast From The Past

I am going to spare the narratives somewhat. If you care, the links will lead to you the wiki entries and you can read up on the bands, there. This week is a montage of some country rock songs from the past, with one more recent and unusual combination of artists. First up is a song from a band formed by two former members of Buffalo Springfield. The band is Poco, the song is In The Heart Of The Night:



If you've ever been out west, you know there's plenty of these things to drive on. Having lived in Kansas for a year and a half, I drove down my share. Here is Pure Prairie League and one of the biggest hits, Two Lane Highway:



I knew him as Michael Murphey. Then he added his middle name, Martin, to the mix and became a successful country artist. If you like the banjo, you will find this performance to be most excellent. Here is Carolina In The Pines:



The unlikely duo is Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame and his partner is Alison Krauss, a bluegrass icon. It's hard to imagine how this must sound. But if haven't heard it, give it a shot. The song was written by the Everly Brothers and is titled, Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On):



Enjoy.

I've heard the Plant/Krauss song at the bar between sets. I've been trying to find different musical styles with age. I've grown to enjoy the Band's greatest hits while getting to know Keith Urban, great show too. I have a disturbing thought, I refuse to listen to bad music in the car. The last song I hear should not be something tragic like Hanson or Pink

When my daughter was young, Hanson was her favorite. I am so glad she's grown now. She has graduated to acts like Jewel and Evanescence.

I have the pleasant melodies of High School Musical. But, my oldest loves Ghost Riders in the Sky and it has to be the Marty Robbins version.
