Usually dislike when actors sing, singers star. Respectively, rarely spectacular than their main line. But, Anthony can sing! Beautifully. Didn't suspect it, hearing speaking voice.

I agree, with all of the above, RR! Just checked out Anthony Perkins on YouTube and thought he did a great job on "Never Will I Marry."

Another actor with a great singing voice that comes to mind is the late Jim Nabors. I recently watched a Gomer Pyle, USMC episode when my spouse said, "You know Jim Nabors could sing, right?" No, I didn't. So when I brought up a clip of him singing Amazing Grace, my mind was blown Shocked Never, ever would I have guessed it was the same man!

Someone recommended this album to me but due to the pressure of work I've lost track of who it was! (It might have been at BBT.)

Anyway, it's a very soothing listen after a particularly heavy day. So thank you, that person!

I suspect this would appeal to aeijtzsche, knowing her love of the Baroque and of the bass guitar, in this case a bass colascione:

I was listening to Sirius XM's '60s on 6 this weekend and caught a small portion of their "100 best love songs of the 1960s as chosen by the listeners" show. I love '60s music in general, so this was a nice treat. "Don't Worry Baby" was #32, "Be My Baby" was #30, and "God Only Knows" came in at #7. The top 3 were "Cherish" by the Association, "Unchained Melody", and Elvis' "I Can't Help Falling in Love with You" was #1. Probably the standout song to me, that I had heard a few times before (but never knew what it was) was "To Sir with Love" by Lulu. The host of the show mentioned that Lulu had opened for the Beach Boys at some point, which I thought was cool. There is so much great music from this era that I didn't know about up until recently -- and when I hear it, it feels like finding buried treasure.

I know the feeling, bc--and I lived through those years! One of my colleagues at the hobby forum introduced me to the deep cuts (mainly B-sides) of Freddie and the Dreamers. No one took Freddie seriously in those days, myself included.

Another recentish (2002) discovery was the UK producer Joe Meek. Most of his acts didn't mean too much--that was the whole point in a way--but his genius as a producer elevated them to superstardom! My brother and I sneered at Joe Meek at the time--we were young and foolish.

And, on the psychedelic and progressive front, my erstwhile young friend re-introduced me to the more adventurous stuff of the late '60s, early '70s that had either passed me by at the time or I had pooh-poohed as not being my cup of tea. (You can see/hear the results in my "Sundazed" topic, now gradually sinking from view.) Ironic that it came from someone born a quarter of a century after much of it had been recorded. I wish her well.

So yes--as you say, buried treasure!

Time for something joyous and celebratory now that the Power Mower is back in action. How about "Holiday", from Weezer's Blue Album? Hello

The Weather by Pond. The vinyl just came today (edit: i should note for me. the album's been out since 2017). "Paint Me Silver" is my favorite track. Rec'd if you want some Australian psych rock heavily influenced by Pet Sounds/Smile.

By the way, I was told these forums were defunct. Gone. Lost to the interwebz. I was wrong!

Hello M. No, we're still up and running--pretty smoothly too, if I say so myself. Smokin

Here's that Pond track you recommended:

Iím currently listening to a Ď60s Sunshine Pop playlist I put together last night on my phone. Featured on the playlist: The Association, The Mamas & The Papas, The Turtles, The Left Banke, The Happenings, The Free Design, Sagittarius, The Yellow Balloon, The Monkees and more. Lotsa fun. Knowing me, Iíll design an album cover for this when Iím able to.

^ What are the odds? I just made a playlist like that tonight. Still a work in progress... Also on the lookout for new bands that sound like that.

Thanks for the heads up! Great stuff to drift away on... Roll Eyes
The whole album is great; "Sweep Me Off My Feet" is a jam, too. Even though I'm a huge Tame Impala fan, I'm only now really getting into Pond. But hey, that's how it goes.

I might like Man It Feels Like Space Again almost as much. They're all great!

But... currently listening to Alvvays. I'm alvvays listening to them!  Grin

Now I think of it, M, I remember listening to a great album by Pond a while back called Hobo Rocket. It may well have been you or Mr. Waves who recommended it to me.

Talking of TI, it was certainly you who introduced me to another great album, Lonerism.

You won't believe this, but it was only today that I discovered Kevin Parker and company were from Australia!!!! Brow

These days, I'm exploring the music of Christoph Graupner, a contemporary of Bach and Handel but nowhere near as well known.

My first extended listen is this CD by the Austrian soprano Miriam Feuersinger (see the link for details):

Ah yes. Lots of great music comes from the land down under! You won't believe this either, but I only relatively recently started listening to Pond more! The Weather sits by my record player as I type, so I've come a ways, haha.

@Summer_Days, I was on a "Cloudbusting" kick for about a month. Wild Nothing does a great cover of it, too.

Listening to "Try" a lot by Neil Young, Homegrown out next month! :D

I have a bunch of CDs in the basement and have been going down there lately to pick something to listen to.  I had pretty much forgotten about the Smoking Popes but I think this is a decent listen if you like pop-punk.
