"Cool Calm & Collected" by Rolling Stones. Mick sings it very well, song shines with joy & neat kazooing.

The American Epic series that ran recently had a segment on the development of the steel guitar.
I love the sound of the steel guitar, whatever style it is.
Am a fan of the "sacred steel" tradition. This is pedal steel guitar used in some church services.
So the series reminded me that it was too long since listening to the Campbell Brothers. They played this song at our JazzFest a few years ago, and I couldn't help it, had to get up and move!
This is great music for doing housework, mopping the floors, rattling those pots and pans, scooping out cat litter...

And for something COMPLETELY different:
Read a story about Korla Pandit. He was a guy who said that he was from India. Wore a turban and played a mean organ. He was very popular in the 40s-50s.
I find the music fascinating, but am curious about how it was so popular.  It wasn't, at least to my ears, soothing, but was a bit unsettling at times
Here he is, playing a song that's very familiar to surf music fans:

Oh, and Pandit wasn't from India, but from the U.S., born in Missouri. And he wasn't Indian, but African American. In our crazy country back then, an African American couldn't get gigs like this. But be some other "exotic" ethnicity and the sky was the limit.

A quite understandable obsession, M. :=)

It's really odd discovering (with a little help) music by a band from the '80s I'd never even heard of a week or two ago...
